S-OCT Audition- HypothermiaWater rolled off the end of the oar and fell into the river below with soft plips. The yellow kayak glided smoothly across the surface in near silence. Wind weaved easily through the well-leafed trees carrying the snap-chitter sounds of the nearby forest with it."Cassy, come on. You can look at the trees when we stop for lunch." Jaime easily placed the voice as Mary-Ellen's. She turned to look back at her friends.Cassy was lagging behind again. Sunlight reflected off of her red hair making her easier to spot in her grey kayak. Mary-Ellen whipped forward with a shake of her head. The blonde had been getting crankier all day. Jaime made a mental note to say something to her about it during lunch. She had a feeling that it was hunger that was pushing Mary-Ellen to snapping. Becca slipped by dreamily. She seemed oblivious to Mary-Ellen's temper."I'll go on ahead and see if I can find a good spot to set-up for lunch," Jaime yelled down the river. She easily overcame Becca's leisurely pac

CPOCT- R1P4- Cigarette SmokeBenji was coughing up water on the side of the lake. He was lucky that he hadn't died. Khuna hadn't thought of water in the lungs. He'd never had that problem."Finally up?" Benji stumbled to his feet. He'd been in the water. He thought he'd seen his breath, but it was all pink and then the ice was tipping. Had Eric actually pushed the ice that hard? "What happened?""Don't worry about it. You hit your head when you fell in the water." Benji didn't believe the brunette, but he was a bit afraid of questioning him."Thanks for getting me out then." Eric smiled."Don't thank me. Glad you're alright." He had defeated the boy. It would be up the overseer to know that. He looked out over the lake. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't his lake. Not to mention this lake had some sort of weird fog that rolled over it. Benji must've noticed it too."Uhm, what's that pink stuff?" he asked.
CPOCT- R1P3- DrowningBenji was convinced that this was the single largest park in the world. He'd seen buffalo in a pen and found a horse track without coming close to seeing houses on the other side of the park. He was presently circling around the bison pen with his arms hugged around himself. He wanted nothing more than to crawl farther inside his coat and warm up. He'd been startled to discover that what could only be called frostbite had crept farther up his arms. The first two joints in his fingers were now black or navy while light blue and white crept all the way to his knuckles. He was getting scared. "Maybe I should head back into the city. This place is so huge. I'll never find my opponent." He kicked a stone and watched it roll away. The longer he walked the more he missed the warm cabin and teasing Jason. His cousin really was a good guy, but his constant mothering was what made Benji loathe being in a sma
CPOCT- R1P2- SaltydogKhuna looked around his new environment despite its chaotic movements as it fully took shape out of the uninteresting dream-scape that he had previously inhabited. The ground was oddly flat and clear. Trees marked the edge of this close cropped green where the grass sprung up in the wild way he was accustomed to. He could smell the brine in the air. This was not his home. He willed the grass on the golf green to grow up around his hooves. Still nothing. So perhaps this was another's dream, but he was unsure as to how he had come to be there. He remembered the oddly coloured dog that had formed out of the mist. Could it be the dog's idea? He looked down at the small animal's unusual eyes and snorted. Dogs weren't that smart even if they had weird mold in their fur. This dog however seemed to lack the common sense to give him space in the way that most animals did. In the past he had had weak powers of communica
CPOCT- R1P1- Road to SomewhereWhite was crashing over everything, Jordan, the mountain, the trees, his mother, him. It was suffocating. No way out. Benji clawed and scrambled trying to fight his way to the surface of the icy storm that seemed intent on devouring anything and everything that he known. The blonde awoke abruptly. He bolted to his feet clutching his throbbing head. He remembered now. He'd hit his head when he was trying to get away from the avalanche, but there wasn't snow here. Not that he could feel anyway. Did that girl make it out alright? Geeze, what was up with her anyway? He realized that he hadn't opened his eyes. His headache was willing him to keep his eyes rolled shut. What if it was bright? It would certainly make his headache worse."And what if it isn't?" He opened his eyes expecting snow to be somewhere, but it wasn't. He was in a wholly different place than he'd left. He was in a ci
P-audition- Wade in the WaterThe dark haired teen sat cross legged by the river's edge. Water dripped from his hair as he skipped stones across the wide ribbon of water. The silvery sprays and soft plips were punctuated by a loud crashing from the bushes behind him. He slowly rose to his feet and turned to face the noise. "Why do these always- I swear sometimes I wish I didn't come out here," a female voice growled. A small smile reached the boy's lips, and within moments he was on his way to meet the girl. Broken twigs littered the path behind her, and burrs clung to her jacket."Did you need a hand?" the boy called making her jump. When she saw him she smiled brightly. She had seen him around the area before."Don't you ever dry off?" she asked eying his hair. The softer light of the forest made her look as though she were spun of fine crystals of snow. Oh how quickly those crystals melted in the water."Of course I do. When
