Hi everyone! This chapter I took extra time to make it better then it would have been. Anyways, thank you all for reviewing!


Emma's eyes fluttered open, it was a sunny hot day, she slowly sat up and looked around, she looked down at her swollen arm, the swelling had gone down a lot, but the bruises were still there. Emma stood up, and walked out of the tent, she felt a little tired, but over all very well.

"Emma," Kate said as she walked over to her, she had a bag full of fruit. "Hey, it's good to see you up and around again." She added with a smile.

"Thanks…" Emma said with a small smile.

"Feeling okay?" Kate asked as she dug into the bag and pulled out a banana, she tossed it to Emma.

"Yeah, really good actually, thank you." She said, she began to peel the skin off. "Kate, an 'other' was after me again," She took a bite into the banana. "He caught me, but I managed to get away."

Kate looked down. "Yeah, we know, we bumped into him."

Emma's eyes widened. "Did you catch him?" she asked, her heart was beating fast, if they had caught him, maybe no one would try and get her anymore.

"We did… but he got away from us." Kate said, sounding a little embarrassed.

"Oh," Emma took another bite. "I remember a lot more now." She added.

Kate raised her eyebrows. "Really?"

Emma nodded. "Yeah, a lot more, I had a lot of flashbacks, Kate… did you know there is a horse on this island?"

"Yeah," Kate replied, Emma sounded so happy right now, which she hadn't seen happy in a long time. "Yeah, I saw it."

Emma smiled.

"Well, I gotta go get the rest of this fruit to Jack, don't wonder to far away, Jack will want to make sure you're all right."

Emma nodded. "Okay, I'm jus going to go sit down by the beach." She said as she began to walk.

"Okay, see you later Emma!"



Kate walked over to Sawyer, almost feeling a little shy. She dug into her bag and pulled out another piece of fruit. "Hey," she said as she walked up to him.

"Hey yourself," Sawyer said as he glanced up from his book. "How's doll face?"

Kate smiled. "Emma? She's doing really good, which is unusual for her."

Sawyer smirked.

"She really likes you," Kate added.

"That's nice freckles," he said as he began to peel the fruit, that didn't actually have a name.

Kate rolled her eyes and walked away.



Emma turned to see a man, a little over weight (Okay, so he is more then a little.) walking towards her, she smiled. "Hey."

Hurley pulled off his shoes and walked into the water. "Heard what happened to you…"

"Really?" she asked, this island reminded her of a old town, that gossiped to much.

"Yeah, must have been freaky, huh?"

Emma blinked a couple of times. "Yeah," she said barely above a whisper.

Hurley sat down next to her. "They seem to like you," he said.

"Right, that's why they try to kidnap me." She muttered.

Hurley flicked a bug off of his arm. "Well, I should be going." He said as he looked up at Libby passing by. "I'll see you later Emma!"

Emma watched him leave, a small smile crept over her face, he had a crush on Libby!


Emma knew at once who the voice belonged to. "Jack," she said as she turned to face him, he really needed a shave.

"How you feeling?" he asked as he sat next to her.

Emma shrugged. "Fine." She said.

Jack nodded. "Good, you sleeping okay? Having any nightmares?"

Emma looked up at him confused. "Why would I be?" she asked.

"Emma, you've been taken by those people, you also have had someone try and take you again, twice, that's not something you go through every day."

Emma looked down, he sure made everything feel okay. "I'm fine," she said.

"You sure?"

Emma sighed. "Yes, I'm sure." She said. "Thanks,"

Jack nodded. "You drinking enough?"

Emma nodded. "Yeah,"


"Hey you guys," Kate said as she walked up to them.

Jack and Emma looked up at her.

"Hi Kate," Jack said as he scooted over to make room for her.

Kate smiled and sat down. "So,"

Emma waited for someone to say something, but no one said a word, until…

"Hey doc, where's the party?" Sawyer asked as he appeared from behind a couple of trees.

"Sawyer," Kate said with a smile.

"Hi Sawyer," Jack said as he stood up.

"I come for my meds doc." He said as he rubbed his shoulder.

"Okay," Jack said as he began to walk away.

"See ya later ladies." Sawyer said as he followed Jack.

Kate turned to Emma.



"I think we should do something, something to keep the others away from us." Emma said as she scratched her head.

"I agree, have any ideas?"

Emma nodded. "Yeah, I think we should build a fort, like a big gate all around us, people still could get in and out, but it wouldn't be as easy."

Kate nodded.

"For at night at least." Emma added.

"That's a good idea." Kate said. "I'll talk to Jack about it."

Emma paused for a minute. "Why does everything have to be up to Jack?" she asked as she slowly looked up at Kate.

"I guess we all consider him to be the leader." Kate said.

Emma nodded.

"Why don't you like him Emma?" Kate asked as she raked her fingers through Emma's hair.

"I like him," She said. "He's… good."

Kate looked deeper into Emma's eyes. "Okay," she said. "Well, I'm off, I'll see you later, okay?"

Emma nodded. "Okay, bye Kate!"
