Hey peoples! First, I wanna thank all who gave Lost a chance. I'm excited, if you can't tell, because all the views mean a lot to a person who thought it was only going to get 2 maybe 3 for the first 4 chapters. I'm writing this mostly in Nikki's P.O.V. unless I tell you otherwise.

As I sit there on the beach thinking what to do, I see something swimming in the water near where I sank my boat. I want to get a better view, so I wade in the water at about just above my ankle. Squinting my eyes because it's still a little far out, I see not one or two, but several shark-like fins protruding out of the water. They look a little unusual for shark fins, as they have spikes around them. And I have a huge fear of sharks. So I run out of the water, across the beach, and into the forest where I know I'm safe from sharks, but not thinking about the other dangers such as wolves, snakes, poisonous spiders, and a lot of other things.
So that's what happened starting from this morning until right now. So after about five more minutes of running, which has turned into a jog, I sit down on a small boulder to catch my breath, and to figure out where I am. I put together a few clues in my brain. Let me see,
1. I'm in the forest that was near a beach, and I don't know any beaches that I've been to that have that.
2. The air smells rather fresh, unlike the city air I'm used to.
3. It's unusually cold, weird because it's July I think.
Wherever I am, it's either one of two places. Greenland or somewhere where there isn't many cities or vehicles.
As I'm sitting there I suddenly hear a noise like a squirrel's rustling in the trees. But no, it sounds bigger and it is most definitely on the ground. And it sounded like a stick or twig snapped, which most squirrels can't do. Instantly I'm scared and I jump up off the rock, but to tired to run now. This time I'm putting up a fight. I look around for something to use as a weapon. The only thing I can find is a small stone. 'It's better then nothing' I think to myself. I start yelling at whatever the thing is that's watching me.
"You'd better stay away if you know what's best for you!"
I hear some rustling, it sounds close. Like it's coming towards me.
"Come any closer and I'll hit you with this! It's really hard and you'll get hurt really bad!"
I'm not giving up what it is though. That would be stupid, because they could have like a knife or something.
I hear more rustling leaves and it's closer. Ok, I'm starting to go insane with fear now so I say the most threatening thing that I can think of.
"I know Kung Fu!"
I really don't. But it's the adrenaline and fear talking. I then hear a voice.
"I don't mean you any harm. And please don't throw that rock at me."
HA! Yeah right, no harm. They could sneak up on me and kill me! Apparently, the person is close enough to see the 'weapon'. I decide to move closer to where I heard the voice come from, clutching the rock harder.
"Where are you?"
I get no response.
A little louder, "Where are you?"
Still no response.
Then I pretty much yell, "WHERE ARE YOU?"
Practically right behind me I hear the nasal voice,
Ha ha, Cliffhanger! I love and hate them. Well, chapter 3 will hopefully be up by next week, if not sometime this week. I make no promises on updates, except that I will never update on weekends as I'm usually busy. If Nikki seems like she's a Mary-Sue, I don't care. I see all O.C.'s as Mary-Sue's, because they get to live out something we don't. Oh yeah, I'm putting a spin on things and made it to where the HTTYD crew can be in our time, but it's nothing impressive like time travel or something. I can't tell you now, but the reason is coming up in two chapters or so.
