Jet looked around. Very few Freedom Fighters were left. And all of them were acting sulky. He knew it wouldn't be long till they deserted him too. They were half heartedly eating dinner at the now much to long table.
There was no one talking and laughing now. Used to be you could hardly hear yourself over the din of noise. The shouts and cheers filled the trees just like the cries and songs of birds.
Jet savored those memories. He knew there'd never be another chance to make them again. Just like he'd asked himself every day since their numbers started to dwindle, what happened? When had it all crumbled?
Their hearts seemed to break just a little more when another person left. Even though they knew it was going to happen, they couldn't stop the pain. Only about seven people were left besides him. And it wasn't the people he'd thought would stick with him to the end.
Those people had left first. It had been the others to follow. Jet had really misjudged their charaters. Or maybe, they had misjudged his. "Stop thinking like that. It's not your fault." Jet whispered to himself.
The other Freedom Fighters looked up at him. "Heh, yeah and it's everybody elses right? You were the one who started it. The moment you kicked out Longshot was when we saw what you had become." The kid said. Jet stared at him. "I've been wanting to leave for a long time." The kid continued.
"Well what's stopping you Lou?" Jet said nastily. "Nothing." Lou said and walked away. "You coming Pigtails?" Lou turned around partially and looked at the girl sitting at the table. She glanced at Jet quickly then got up. "Yeah I am." Pigtails grasped Lou's hand and together they walked away.
"Who needs them anyway? We're better off without them!" Said. "No we're not." A tall girl scoffed. She got up and left too. One by one kids got up and left. Three kids remained. They looked at Jet. Jet glared at him.
"GET AWAY! I DON'T WANT YOU HERE!" Jet threw some bread at them. The kids fled quickly. One of them turned around and stuck his tounge out at Jet. Jet started to get up, his eyes clouded in rage.
The kid turned around and high tailed it out of the trees with his friends. Jet calmed himself. "What just happened?" Jet asked aloud. "Everyone has left me." Jet stared straight ahead not seeing. "Everyone."
Everyone was gone.
Jet's done it now. What can I say? I'm not surprised.
