Felt like moving [name_u]Elie[/name_u] here now! Warning for plane accident (no fatalities) and marooning.

[name_u]Eliott[/name_u] “ [name_u]Elie[/name_u] ” [name_m]Jason[/name_m] [name_m]Freeman[/name_m] (32) is Marina’s brother-in-law and is excited to see [name_f]Marina[/name_f] carry Felicity’s baby. He’s a tennis pro and loves to hang out with his in-laws, particularly the kids. He’s taught them some basic tennis and ping pong skills and the thing they like about [name_u]Elie[/name_u] the most is his energy. He’s always happy and confident with himself when he’s around. [name_u]Elie[/name_u] never got along with his elder brother and felt borderline bullied by the man, who was constantly very selfish. Personally [name_u]Elie[/name_u] wishes his brother wasn’t like this and sometimes he’ll visit the children when his brother wasn’t around so they can bond with him without worrying about their father. [name_u]Elie[/name_u] loves his tennis career but he’s always interested in what everyone else does as well. He’s quite the conversationalist and often gets caught up talking about the happiest (although most pointless) stuff.

[name_u]Elie[/name_u] was on a small plane two weeks ago which ended in crazy circumstances. [name_u]Elie[/name_u] was travelling alone but the plane had a few other passengers, all there for various reasons, Elie’s being his return home from a major tennis tournament. Due to a malfunction in the plane, the plane had to make an urgent emergency landing. Everyone was freaking out, [name_u]Elie[/name_u] even heard the sound of a 1-year-old baby crying next to the couple on the plane who raised this baby, the first time he heard a baby cry on a plane and didn’t feel scorn. [name_u]Elie[/name_u] himself wanted to scream but he was too scared to open his mouth, or his eyes even, and closed his eyes the entire time during the landing. The landing was a safe landing. Not a fiery crash, a pretty good landing although the plane was scratched up and was made worse given its prior malfunctions. This would mean the plane was unusable and couldn’t be flown back. [name_u]Elie[/name_u] opened his eyes. He was marooned on an island. It was believed they landed into one of the smaller [name_f]Channel[/name_f] Islands off the [name_f]English[/name_f] [name_f]Channel[/name_f] but [name_u]Elie[/name_u] didn’t know which one.

[name_u]Elie[/name_u] tried to calm himself down from the panic. He didn’t know how long he’d be marooned but he was grateful it didn’t end worse for him and the other passengers. From it, everyone evaded the plane and he met up with the other passengers. He talked to the couple first because he knew they were the most shaken up, especially with the baby being there. He noticed there was another family on this plane and felt bad because this family was likely trying to get a fun vacation or something. He wasn’t the only one who traveled alone but he did feel lost. The first day was the craziest. Nobody was expecting anything and people were still in panic mode. [name_u]Elie[/name_u] and the family got into an argument on the first day. The family wanted to sleep in the plane for shelter because it was the best chance at warmth rather than being outside at night. [name_u]Elie[/name_u] understood but argued that the plane was very unstable due to malfunctions and it wouldn’t be safe to sleep there. [name_m]Just[/name_m] then, the plane engine exploded. The family was grateful [name_u]Elie[/name_u] saved them by talking them out of it, but everyone was still in panic mode, especially now given that it felt like any wrong move could be fatal in the aspects of survival. However that day, another survivor found a clean source of water, which made things much easier and more helpful. [name_u]Elie[/name_u] himself learned a skill that day, he can make fire without matches.

[name_f]Every[/name_f] day, everyone immediately focused on getting enough food, water, and warmth for the day. The couple was very focused on letting the baby have more than they did, which [name_u]Elie[/name_u] felt bad for, especially since the couple was younger than him. It’s just approached two weeks and everyone is alive, although some people are still freaking out. The eldest passenger, who seems to be coming down with the flu, keeps yelling at the pilot for everything that happened and trying to break up these arguments have made people scared. The baby actually isn’t that scared, but only because it’s too unusual for a 1-year-old to comprehend. It’s made him really feel for that baby, especially since [name_f]Marina[/name_f] is carrying a baby for [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]. Also, he couldn’t imagine any of the existing children ever going through island survival. Because [name_u]Elie[/name_u] is a fit athlete and he’s a single traveler, he’s often shared his rations to the families since he has more agility to provide for himself. Granted, the next-youngest after the 1-year-old is a 13-year-old who is part of a family travelling but [name_u]Elie[/name_u] still believes the teenagers should be safe too and enjoys talking to them. He and one of the other solo travelers have formed a good bond and [name_u]Elie[/name_u] has madly admired her wisdom, especially since she was the one who found the water source. They both agreed to make sure to get enough food and water for everyone else and control how it’s used every day. While it’s been scary and unexpected, the passengers still make time to enjoy one another and learn about one another’s lives. They all feel like friends in some sense and they’ve even had some fun, telling scary stories at campfire and playing in the ocean when it’s warm. [name_u]Elie[/name_u] can’t wait to get home and especially see his brother and the sisters-in-law but he’s making the most of his time while he’s still stranded.
