The good news was that more people had come together than she had expected. The majority of them had voted to make temporary camp near the waterfall. She hadn't necessarily disagreed with the argument that a waterfall caused too much noise to hear potential threats. But majority rule had won out in that occasion. It wasn't necessarily permanent, it was just a place to crash while they made more permanent and stable plans. This place hopefully wasn't filled with large threats, besides animals, but it was far too early to tell if that was the case.
Sara had spent the rest of the day showing anyone who wanted to learn how to build a shelter for themselves using just what was available to them. Luckily it was hot enough that none of them were going to freeze without blankets. She'd been trapped on colder islands than this. This? Really was paradise.
When the sun rose, so did she. She'd crawled out of her leaf hut, and looked around the camp sight. Personally, she liked it. They were next to a stream, a waterfall, the beach wasn't too hard to get to. She was probably going to start drawing up plans for a round lodge in the same area. It was bigger, a large shelter to do for now.
But first, food and probably taking advantage of the waterfall. Because why not? It was the first time in a long time she didn't feel pressure to really do anything but survive. If Sara was anything, she was a survivor. This was infinitely better than the 1950s. No immortals to deal with, no mission. Yes, she had wanted to change her own fate. But after it became clear the team wasn't coming back to get them, this was the better option. She could be useful here. She could protect people, help them survive. Build, hunt, offer protection. Sara could be useful, and take the time to take care of herself at the same time.
She had noted yesterday that there was a number of fruit trees growing on the island, and yesterday she had spotted peaches. She moved through their camp quietly toward the tree. She couldn't reach the lowest branch with fruit standing, but it was nothing for her to jump, swing herself up and pick a few peaches off before jumping back down again.
Breakfast in hand, she headed over to the waterfall, sitting down on a rock by the waters edge and submerging her legs in the pool.
