Jake jumps as he hears a generator explode. He raises himself from the squatting position he's currently in and glances over the broken cars, spotting Dwight at the generator farther away. "Seriously?" Jake murmured to himself, returning to the work at hand.
They were against th(more)e Wraith, he realized, once he heard the banging of a bell and Dwight shrieked in pain and fear.
In seconds he was strung up, and Jake crouched low and hid in a thick bush as the Wraith materialized in front of his own generator, where he'd been standing only seconds ago. Once the Wraith had disappeared and walked away-the air always shimmered around him, as if the fog couldn't hide him completely.
This time he didn't even need to lift his head to hear Nea's expletive as the generator exploded by Jake's head as he attempted to help. He rolled his eyes but hurried away, even when Nea shrieked and he saw the Wraith lift her and set her down on a nearby hook.
Even when Jake lifted her off precious seconds later, she returned to the same generator and was rewarded with the same fate as before.
This time Jake didn't hide the disappointment in his shoulders as he heard another generator pop and blow up in Bill's face.
If even he was messing up, perhaps they were all off their game. It was still annoying to no end that Bill died next, before Jake could even reach him.
Jake sighed as the generator blew up with a bang. He could already hear the footsteps behind him and held his hands up. "I'm done," he said, shaking his head.
