As Bel saw how many newcomers there were, she opened some cans with soup, stew meat and pineapple juice. Her big handkerchief served as a tablecloth. The hamster, already calm, sniffed a cracker.
- Look, Julian, it seems like we have kind of a feast here, - she smiled.

Aude laughed softly, looking at the little hamster.
- So cute! - she said. - Sometimes I regret that I don't have any pet...
She opened her back pack and took several packs of dried fruits^
- Some kind of dessert, from my part.
May. 10th, 2011 07:22 am (UTC)
- Oh, you may pet it, if you want, - Bel was proud of her hamster, - it's name is Engine. It's a female.

//when everybody begins to eat, we may sit a little bit apart near one another and begin to chat in French//
May. 10th, 2011 03:27 pm (UTC)
//separate entry or this thread?//
- You are French or at least francophone, I suppose. I hear it by your pronunciation... as you can do by mine.
Aude still kept her glasses on, but they became clearer, so her eyes could now be seen.

- Hello there! - Allan waved at Bel with a contented laugh. - A feast, and no less! I'll go bring sumthin' from my shuttle, too. The first meal in tha' new world shouldn't be scarce.
May. 10th, 2011 07:23 am (UTC)
- Well, thank you, we'll wait.

Jim greeted the hostess with a somewhat awkward bow, disposed of the suicases and quietly sat on the grass.
May. 10th, 2011 12:49 pm (UTC)
- Welcome! I am Bel, and what is your name?
May. 10th, 2011 03:01 pm (UTC)
-Me is Jim, la...ehh, Bel.
As to the following altercation, Jim mostly disregarded it, only an amused and somewhat contemptuous smile fleetingly touched his lips

Stella laid several cans out of her own backpack into the pile of provisions and busied herself with the campfire. The brushwood was just dry enough, and very soon the flames were dancing merrily, sending waves of warmth - which was very timely, as the evening was obviously going to be really cool.
May. 10th, 2011 11:06 am (UTC)
Julian seemed not too hungry, as he sat on the warm ground looking at the flame, as if trying to see somethiing inside.
May. 10th, 2011 10:37 am (UTC)
Julian smiled in reply to Bel, got some sliced bread and cheese from his backpack and added his part to the "feast". He introduced himself, as the others came, cheerfully but shortly.
May. 10th, 2011 12:14 pm (UTC)
- Hey, guys! - Alex approached the bonfire and waved to the people sitting in circle. - Can I join you? I'm Alex, - she smiled and waved again.
May. 10th, 2011 12:52 pm (UTC)
- Hi, Alex! Sure, sit down. I am Bel. Some soup?
May. 10th, 2011 01:00 pm (UTC)
- Thanks, - she took the bowl. Then she looked around slightly embarrassed. - Sorry, I don't have anything to add to the feast. I have only few energy bars and my camera, everything else is in my shuttle up in the hills.
May. 10th, 2011 01:03 pm (UTC)
- It's ok. Tomorrow we'll begin to explore the territory and examine what is comestible here. Are you a journalist?
May. 10th, 2011 01:13 pm (UTC)
- No, just a freelance photographer. But I worked for a paper in Boston and for National Geographic few times. Nice hamster by the way! Don't you afraid he will run away?
May. 10th, 2011 05:16 pm (UTC)
- It is in the box. Do you want to pet it after the dinner?
May. 10th, 2011 06:53 pm (UTC)
- I'd love it! - Alex was so exited she almost jumped in her sit.
May. 10th, 2011 01:05 pm (UTC)
- Don't worry, Alex, we have enough here, and your supplies could come in handy when we have eaten everything in our first day here, - Stella remarked.

It was hard to tell if she was serious or just joking.
May. 10th, 2011 01:19 pm (UTC)
- Then I should keep the energy bars near. I'm not one hundred percent sure I can find my shuttle at first attempt. It is pretty deep forest over there.
May. 10th, 2011 01:11 pm (UTC)
A short distance away there landed a little smart scarlet shuttle. It was streamlined though it wasn't really necessary for a space jorney, and all in all looked rather pricey. A yellow shield with a black prancing stallion on it was painted on it's boarside.
The shuttle's owner waited for the sand and dust to settle down before opening the hatch, and after that a middle-aged man with dark short hair and dark-brown eyes appeared on the ramp. He gave a swift glance to the beach and the sea and the people messing around near the fire and a look of annoyance came to his unshaven face.
Dressed in some sort of an integrated suit as scarlet as his shuttle the man nwittingly twiddled with a cellphone useless on this new planet.
After a couple of minutes of hesitation he went down to the ground and made his way to the fire, squeamishly avoiding the piles of wracks and shells driven ashore by the sea.
- Hey there, - he said in English with a tipical Spanish accent. - Are you the only people here?

Bel put her hamster back to the box and stood up. She had met already that kind of men and answered in a calming voice:
- Apparently yes. Would you like to join us? The stewed meat is hot already.
May. 10th, 2011 01:18 pm (UTC)
- The meat?.. - He seemed a bit suprised as if has just noticed the meals. - No... No, thank you. I'm looking for my manager. Or anybody from the team. They must be here already. Didn't you see them?
He looked around once again, almost in panic and repeated insistently:
- They must be somewhere here! It's impossible I'm here all alone.

May. 10th, 2011 01:23 pm (UTC)
Bel opened wide her eyes.
- Alone?.. Ok... I think, I understand, what you mean. Look, there is nobody from your team, but maybe they will come later.
May. 10th, 2011 01:26 pm (UTC)
- Later? - He turned to Bel and asked angrily. - And what am I supposed to do here till they come... later?!
May. 10th, 2011 01:29 pm (UTC)
- Hey you, angry one, do you think I should put out your manager from my pocket?! Calm down! This meat is not your manager's! You are supposed to survive till that. And I advise you not to do it alone.
May. 10th, 2011 01:35 pm (UTC)
- Hey! We're all here in the same boat. No need to be nasty! It won't bring you team here but it will surely mean that you won't have dinner with us. - Alex turned to Bel, - it's your food so you should decide but...
May. 10th, 2011 01:51 pm (UTC)
The man pouted and suddenly looked somewhat childly.
- I'm definately not going to have dinner with you! - He snapped. - I'm not going to stay here at all!
He turned aside and strode to his shuttle stumbling as his feets got stuck in the sand. "Mierda!" - he muttered blackly but didn't stop.
May. 10th, 2011 01:53 pm (UTC)
- Have you seen that? - muttered Bel. - I wish no bear or crocodile here would like to have him as a dinner.
May. 10th, 2011 02:02 pm (UTC)
- Yeah! We wouldn't want them to get stomach ache, - Alex laughed and took the spoon again. - Bel, sit. I think he will be fine by himself. If not, he knows where to find us.
May. 10th, 2011 02:06 pm (UTC)
Allan looked thoughtfully at the stumbling figure, then made a movement towards the man.
- Oi! - he shouted. - A'least, if you don' want to eet with us, maybe you'd loik to have some good whisky?
May. 10th, 2011 03:24 pm (UTC)
The man just continued walking as if he hadn't heard anything. He reached his pretty-looking shuttle and climbed inside.
May. 10th, 2011 01:45 pm (UTC)
- Is there a problem or sumthin'? - Allan reappeared, carrying some sizeable packages and also a thing that looked like a bottle of spirits.
He stopped, placed his packages on the ground and looked at the company.
- Somewun jus' arroived heer and already startin' a foit? - Allan looked intently at the dark angry newcomer.
May. 10th, 2011 01:48 pm (UTC)
- He is not used to live in conditions like this. But we all have no choice, - Bel shrugged, - champagne and hotels remained in the past.

May. 10th, 2011 01:54 pm (UTC)
- Poer mahn, - Alan laughed. - Who is he anyway?
May. 10th, 2011 01:59 pm (UTC)
- Le Bon Dieu sait... I'd like to know it myself. I suppose, he is one of those rich idlers, maybe a racecar driver or a football player - he looked for his "team and manager". Lost during a hyper-jump, I think.
May. 10th, 2011 02:10 pm (UTC)
- Somehoe I've pity for him. He looks so lost heer... Il me semble que votre Bon Dieu lui ne donne pas beaucoup d'aide, - Allan added in bad French, smiling to Bel as she looked at him a bit surprised.
May. 10th, 2011 02:13 pm (UTC)
- I recognize the sign on the shuttle. It's a Ferrari. Nice car, - Alex sighed, - not any more.
May. 10th, 2011 02:18 pm (UTC)
- Yeah, - Allan turned to her, - by tha way, I think I don't know yer nime. I'm Allan McBayne, - he reached his hand out.
May. 10th, 2011 02:30 pm (UTC)
- I'm Alexandra Katz. Alex, - she shook his hand. - I'm glad I met you, guys. It was pretty scary to take the flight alone.
May. 10th, 2011 02:42 pm (UTC)
- Hope it won't be even scarier heer. We don' know much about this place...
May. 10th, 2011 07:07 pm (UTC)
- It looks pretty nice. I took few pictures on the way, - Alex turned on her camera and showed the screen to Allan. - Trees and grass mostly. And I didn't see any animals.
May. 10th, 2011 07:27 pm (UTC)
- Interesting, but no' a' all encouraging, - Allan looked quickly through the pictures.

*I suppose we should move to the next entry and start our dinner eventually =)*

While the ship was slowly entering the atmosphere of The Planet, a young woman with amazingly blue eyes was desperatly struggling to close her backpack. A black cat seemed to be nervous, as it was constantly making tours around the cabin. "Et voila!", the woman said in a happy voice and at this exact moment her ship "Aragon" finally touched the ground. Léonie Cabirau grabbed her backpack, opened the door and made the first step to the unknown.
Léonie was enjoing a warm wind caressing her neck when she understood that actually it was smelling a campfire. "Nosferatu, viens-là!" - she called her cat and willing to follow the smell they started walking towards the hills hidden in a haze.
