He made his way down, being careful not to make noise, when he thought he heard whispering. He couldn't make out what it said, but as he turned, there was nothing there. Slightly unnerved, he continued on towards where he saw the others, finally coming to the correct clearing.
"Hello." He said simply, not sure about how to greet them. He saw now who was there. It was Jack, the ship pilot, Alexis, the communications operator, and Zack, a fellow sniper-scout.
"Oh god, you're alive?!" Cried out Jack, slightly too loud. Zack came up and gave him a handshake awkwardly, while Alexis remained in the back. "We're not sure where the others are....we assumed the worst." Jack continued.
"It's alright. We can try and find them." Zack simply responded, standing near Cody, obviously very glad to have him back. Jack was still very worried looking, and Alexis remained expressionless. She generally showed little emotion.
"Well, maybe we should get situated. I mean-" Cody started, not very aggressively at all, before being interrupted by Alexis.
"I'm in charge." She started simply, "That's how the command chain goes. I'm not sure yet what we'll do though." She spoke with authority, and as though she commanded respect. She didn't, though, as they were all fresh out of training, very young and not experienced. The oldest of the new recruits was only 24, and that was Cody. Yet, they didn't challenge her. It was best to avoid infighting.
Alexis Sanders options:
1) Go look for the others.
2) Stay where you are and get situated.
