I nibbled over some of the fried bird HH provided. Mainly just so I could sneak away one of the larger talons. It wasn't the size of a velociraptor claw or as sharp, but hey it would cut through stuff at least raggedly. I took off my long sleeved shirt and started to work on it.
"Good bye sleeves, may you no longer protect me from sunburn." I wiped away a fake tear and took the talon to the the threads of the shoulder sleeves. After some cutting and bleeding, my shirt had been butchered into a sleeveless hooded shirt. On the upside, I had two makeshift bags to carry around.
The supplies the Tufi Empress had provided us were not the expected ones, but who needs a bag when you can make your own? The other team must have settled for some lame name or not really worked at picking something out. Whatever. I agreed with HH about following the water inlet , but was startled by Mak and Eeko arising from the hole. There was an odd glow about the two, or rather coming from behind the two. They dropped a few pair of light stones on the ground with the other assorted supplies we had received.
I took a small portion of the twine and cut it loose. I needed a way to secure the bottom of my sleeve bags. I tied the bottom of the sleeves and made two bags. I took a few of the fish bones and hooked them through the opened top of the bag, and used them as makeshift hooks to hang from my belt. Earlier I had noticed that there was what appeared to be an unripe version of exploding fruit? I grabbed a dozen of the smaller ones and dropped them in to test the strength of the bag and it held. I decided to take it along, maybe it'd come in handy later or ripen and explode me to bits.
My ankle still hurt and I had to make use of my walking stick, but it was good for a lot of different things. I took two of the random Crazy Taxi DVD's and smashed them to pieces. The group gave me some weird looks but I proceeded anyway. I handed one pile to Eeko, and split the other pile between Mak and Sumiki.
"Uh... yeah.. I think I explained that in my head and not aloud? I was thinking we should leave a trail for BFA and Arpy to follow us, but then I realized the other tribe could follow us. We're gonna use these to leave a fake trail. Eeko you should leave a fake trail down and over through that hole cavey thingy. Then Sumi and Mak can leave a trail away from the water."
HH spoke up, "Oh that reminds me I marked the way to the water inlet. I've been thinking too. Eeko can catch up with us, and we'll hike through the water trail so we don't leave tracks." She scooped up the items we had been rewarded with and placed them back in the bag. I grabbed some of the loose bones we had left and dropped them in my bag, the talons or other tidbits could be useful later on.
