Captive Pursuit (Kelvin, Miles, Sayid, Ben, Charlotte, Sawyer, everyone else)

"That's a good point," Kelvin replied. He knew very well that a prisoner's first job was to escape and he was sure Ben would take any chance he had to do that. "Simple restraints on the wrists should be sufficient," he added. He didn't see any reason to totally restrain Ben unless he gave them trouble. Sayid was pleased Kelvin agreed putting Ben in restraints was a wise choice. But he wasn't so sure simple restraints were sufficient. Ben was a sly one, after all. He thought for a moment. "We still could put him in a tent though. Unless you think it's better to have him sitting out here." Miles looked at Kelvin. "I'd say have him out here," he said. "Then we can be sure he doesn't try to pull anything." "Yes. Outside would be advisable," Sayid agreed. If he was outside where they could see him at all times, then simple restraints should be good enough.
"That's settled then," Kelvin replied. "We'll keep Ben out here." He was glad they were able to come to an agreement quickly on it. He looked around the area. "We could put him under the tree over there." He indicated where he had in mind. "That's close enough to watch him and it will give him some shade." He didn't think they had to be cruel to Ben. "I'll go and get him," he said.
"I'll come with you," Miles added. He thought someone else should be there in case Ben tried something.

"That's settled then," Kelvin replied. "We'll keep Ben out here." He was glad they were able to come to an agreement quickly on it.

Sayid was once again pleased Kelvin agreed.

He looked around the area. "We could put him under the tree over there." He indicated where he had in mind. "That's close enough to watch him and it will give him some shade." He didn't think they had to be cruel to Ben.

Sayid agreed that would be a good spot for Ben.

"I'll go and get him," he said.

"I'll come with you," Miles added. He thought someone else should be there in case Ben tried something.


"As will I," Sayid said, joining the other two men.
"Okay," Kelvin replied with a nod. He put his water bottle in his pack and stood up. "Let's get this show on the road." He looked at Miles and Sayid. "I appreciate your volunteering to come," he said. He didn't think a lot of backup would be necessary but it was always good to have it just in case. (Especially when dealing with Ben.)
He turned to the group. "We'll be back shortly," he said. He didn't think this little retrieval operation would take that long.

Sayid was certainly more than ready and waited for Kelvin to take the lead.

He looked at Miles and Sayid. "I appreciate your volunteering to come," he said. He didn't think a lot of backup would be necessary but it was always good to have it just in case. (Especially when dealing with Ben.) He turned to the group. "We'll be back shortly," he said. He didn't think this little retrieval operation would take that long.

Sayid and Miles followed along as Kelvin led them to where they were currently holding Ben.
Several minutes later they reached the cave where Ben was. Kelvin went in first. "You're in luck," he said. "You don't have to stay here."
Ben looked at him. "How is that luck since I don't think you'd have the sense to let me go?" He noticed the men behind Kelvin. "I see you brought the goon squad. I thought you were so tough you didn't need backup."
Kelvin looked at Ben. "And I thought you knew when not to run your mouth." He didn't want to dignify the rest of that with a reply. "We're taking you out of here one way or another. I'd rather not have to hogtie you but I would have no problem doing so."
Ben looked at the men and glared. "You'd like that, wouldn't you?" Kelvin looked back at him. He hated to admit that he would actually enjoy that.

Sayid stepped in behind Kelvin, his eyes taking a moment to adjust to the darkness.

Ben looked at him. "How is that luck since I don't think you'd have the sense to let me go?" He noticed the men behind Kelvin. "I see you brought the goon squad. I thought you were so tough you didn't need backup."

Sayid frowned and crossed his arms.

Kelvin looked at Ben. "And I thought you knew when not to run your mouth." He didn't want to dignify the rest of that with a reply. "We're taking you out of here one way or another. I'd rather not have to hogtie you but I would have no problem doing so."

Ben looked at the men and glared. "You'd like that, wouldn't you?" Kelvin looked back at him. He hated to admit that he would actually enjoy that.


"Come on. Let's go," Sayid said.
Kelvin unfastened the restraints that kept Ben from being able to leave the cave. Ben glared at him again and went over to the group. He looked at them and then back at Kelvin. "I guess I should feel flattered that you think I'm such a threat so much backup is needed," he said.
"Call it an insurance policy." Kelvin put restraints on Ben's wrists. "That doesn't mean I see you as that big of a threat. Annoyance, definitely."
He made sure Miles had their six and then started for the cave door. "Let's move it out."
Ben followed along with them. He didn't like letting anyone else have the upper hand but he wasn't sure what else he could do at the moment.

Sayid kept his hand on the butt of his gun in case Ben tried to pull a fast one.

Walking behind the others, Sayid kept a careful eye on Ben.
Ben looked at Sayid and then Kelvin. "Where are you taking me?" he asked. He knew he didn't have much choice at the moment but he didn't want to be totally in the dark.
"You'll find out soon enough," Kelvin replied. He didn't feel inclined to give Ben too much information at the moment.
"You won't get away with this," Ben said.
"I don't know about that," Kelvin replied. "Not to mention that we really haven't done anything wrong." He paused for a moment. "You haven't been abused or denied food and water." Keeping him restrained was questionable but they hadn't done it in an inhumane way. "I don't think you really have a case."

Sayid had been about to say the very same, when Kelvin beat him to it.

"You won't get away with this," Ben said.

"I don't know about that," Kelvin replied. "Not to mention that we really haven't done anything wrong." He paused for a moment. "You haven't been abused or denied food and water." Keeping him restrained was questionable but they hadn't done it in an inhumane way. "I don't think you really have a case."


Sayid found it bitterly ironic that Ben would question their treatment of him after the way he'd treated others. "Karma's a bitch," he replied.
Ben looked at Sayid. "What do you mean?" he asked. "Your people were treated very well while they were my 'guests'." He couldn't say the same for Mikhail and Richard but there had been extenuating circumstances in both cases. If that hadn't been the case they wouldn't have been hurt. "I don't know what you take me for," he said. "I'm not a monster."
Kelvin had a couple answers for that but he thought it would be best to hold his tongue at the moment. There was no sense encouraging Ben to run his mouth.

Scowling, Sayid was appalled with Ben's "forgetfulness".

"I don't know what you take me for," he said. "I'm not a monster."

Kelvin had a couple answers for that but he thought it would be best to hold his tongue at the moment. There was no sense encouraging Ben to run his mouth.


Sayid scoffed. "As I seemed to recall you had the crap beaten out of me by your goon Pickett."
Ben couldn't deny that Sayid had a point. "That was a regrettable occurrence," he said. "It did serve a purpose though. It encouraged you to follow the rules."
"How the heck does beating someone up help them follow the rules?" Miles asked. It didn't make sense to him.
Ben turned to look at him. "It illustrates what will happen if they don't do what I ask. It also demonstrates my power."
Miles shook his head. "Sounds like bullying to me."
Ben smiled. "Call it what you will. It works."

Sayid had to bite his tongue to refrain from a bitter retort.

Miles shook his head. "Sounds like bullying to me."

Ben smiled. "Call it what you will. It works."


"You have little power here," Sayid replied.
Ben frowned. "That might be true at the moment," he said. "It won't be for long though." He knew he wasn't in a position of power right then but he believed that reinforcements were on the way and that things would change a lot once they got there. "My people are coming for me." He looked at Sayid. "Once they arrive we'll see who is in power and who isn't."
Kelvin smirked. "That's pretty big talk, little man," he said. "I admire your confidence but I suspect you may be disappointed." He looked at Ben. "You aren't in power now and you won't be for some time."
"You don't scare me," Ben replied. He stood up straighter, trying to make himself a little taller. "You also don't know what you're talking about."

Ben frowned. "That might be true at the moment," he said. "It won't be for long though." He knew he wasn't in a position of power right then but he believed that reinforcements were on the way and that things would change a lot once they got there.

'That's what you think,' Sayid thought to himself.

"My people are coming for me." He looked at Sayid. "Once they arrive we'll see who is in power and who isn't."

Sayid had no doubt Ben's people would come looking for him but they would be fully prepared, if they did.

Kelvin smirked. "That's pretty big talk, little man," he said. "I admire your confidence but I suspect you may be disappointed." He looked at Ben. "You aren't in power now and you won't be for some time."

"You don't scare me," Ben replied. He stood up straighter, trying to make himself a little taller. "You also don't know what you're talking about."


"You don't need to be scared," Sayid replied. What was important is that they knew more than Ben realized.
