Jayce had to kill his friend.. After arriving on the coast, the boat that Jayce road in on was completely out of fuel. Jayce had set up camp for the night in an abandoned house nearby with plans to look for fuel the next morning. After waking back up and returning to the spot he had left the boat, Jayce realized that it was gone. Most of the provisions and supplies Jayce had were on that boat. With little supplies Jayce now has nothing and now has to try to learn to see if his son is still alive with nothing but his knowledge of his past to help him survive.
