Because Miki was hiking more slowly than the rest of the group, she turned a corner and the group was gone. Miki was lost and sat down on a rock, only to fall backwards through a wall of ivy. She discovered a cave, which at the other end, opened up in view of a giant tree house. Miki heard a noise in some of the trees, and Lindsey came swinging in on a vine, only to ricochet off a tree. Miki was now involved in Lindsey’sshenanigans. Lindsey was ebullient when she saw Miki, filled with a plethora of excitement. She becameloquaciously garrulous and asked Miki how she found her. Then, suddenly, she burst into a harangue and started verbally attacking Miki. Lindsey’s ephemeral happiness, then capricious attitude scared Miki. Miki called her a dipthong, but secretly wished that they would get along and be interdependent with each other. Lindsey’s sanity was at a point of no return; everything she muttered was undetermined codswallop, with the use of a sesquipedalian. By the time the rest of the group arrived, they figured Miki had become wonky.
Meanwhile, the group’s inchoate plan to find Miki caused them to search along the trail for hours. Finally, they found Miki’s water bottle by a rock and Rachel stumbled into the wall of ivy. When they found Miki with Lindsey, the Lindsey they saw was juxtaposed to the one they knew in high school; she wore mungoclothes and her hair was messy. When Lindsey saw the group, she tried to eschew them away from her hideout. After talking to Lindsey and trying to see the composed and tame Lindsey they once knew, the group knew that they needed to get Lindsey back to civilization, but she refused any help from them, saying that the world was too stressful. A schism formed in the group over whether to stay with Lindsey or leave her. Then,perspicacious of this controversial decision, Melissa suggested that they compromise by taking turns to come visit Lindsey every so often. Everyone in the group, besides Lindsey, agreed, and then, the group became uncertain as to what they should do next. They didn’t see much of a need to continue hiking the Pacific Crest Trail when they had “found” Lindsey. Then, Rebecca had an idea. She was thinking of the times they had had in high school and remembered how they had all wanted to go to explore Egypt together. She didn’t want this reunion to be over so she suggested this trip to the group. After some hesitation, they seemed genuinely excited about the prospect of adventure. They said goodbye to Lindsey, each of them promising to return, and headed back the way they had come so they could all travel to Egypt.
