Maxine sighed as she stared up at the dark sky with the light of fire making everything around her glow with an orange hue. Her mind was doing flip flops about same question she's been trying to decided for awhile. Should she just go or hang around. Did these people even want her around? What purpose did she serve to them, not like they'd let her do much with her being a damn kid and all. She was pretty much just counting the stars as her mind couldn't decide what she was going to do. Maybe it'd be smart to just straight and ask if she should jump ship and leave them be? It wasn't like the guy that was partially in charge liked her a lot. Her gaze shifted over towards the other people sitting by the fire, thinking about her odds of sticking with them. She had to first figure out if they'd let her do anything.

Max was in the middle of thinking when the man that got butt hurt, Will, started speaking up about sticking together. His eyes were aimed mainly at crazy lady and her but remained on her for some time longer." If anyone wants me gone just say the word." Maxine openly spoke with her dulled voice making it seem like it didn't matter to her all that much. Her real thoughts were actually scolding her for the way she's been behaving the way she's treated these people. But her real thoughts and the way she was were kind of two different that didn't mix that well really. The sound of the man Will moving about caught her ear and shifred her head a bit to look in his direction. Will seemed to have coughed or something and blood was sitting in his hands." Woah woah woah, you alright dude?" Maxine asked with an alarmed voice as she sat up straight eyes glued towards Will.

Following the two older women, Mia falls behind a little as she looks over the map. "I think if we picked it up a little we could be there in a little less then two hours. I mean let's assume we get there and we just manage to save whoever is shooting, or we get there they're dead and we can grab their stuff and go...it's grim to think yeah, but yeah at least we could have stuff then" she grins as she has to jog to catch up. The sounds of gunshots silence after another few minutes and the only sounds that could be heard are the crickets around them as well as the crunching of leaves below them.

Mia begins to think about the possibility of what could be waiting for them with this city, maybe they could find her mom or someone else that they lost...or they could run into Eden scouts. Either way they were looking to run into something that would be potentially dangerous.

____________________________________________________

Ami gave a shrug as it seemed the rest of the group didn't care to go after the deer, and in all honesty she didn't care mainly due to the fact it would waste ammo that they really didn't have to waste. With a small sigh she looked over at the group surrounding the fire before shaking her head and taking a drag off her cigarette. Turning to look off in the distance she squinted as she spots what looked to be a flash of light.

Raising her binoculars she looks over the horizon and spots the flickering light of what she'd assume to be a camp fire or something along the lines. She turns to tell the others but she thinks better. It was to far away plus it was more then likely another camp, either way she didn't see the need to inform them. Taking another drag of her cigarette she continues her watch with a soft sigh.

Heavy breathing, it was hard to catch a break. He tried to keep quiet, keeping his breaths slow and soft. Austin knew whatever what chasing him, woukd be lurking nearby. He knew from experience these things didnt give up easily. After alerting it with his pistol, it was only a matter of time before the post office was its destination.

Quickly but quietly Miller moved to the back of the building, sliding under the processing desk by the mail chute. Carefully he mocee the sgirt wrapped around his wound, blooding still drilping from the open flesh. He needed it to stop bleeding.. or the posibility of him bleeding out would be severe.

The two guns Miller brought with him, placed on either side of the man as he dumped all the ammo into one clip. Once it was loaded he stuck the full clip into one of them, and stuck it in the holster. Taking the empty clip holding it with both of his socks wrapped around the bottom to keep his hand from burning, Miller held it out in front of himself, the flame of a lighter besting against it from underneath for a few minutes. Once the metal glowed a bright red, Miller tucked the shift between his teerh and bit down hard. The sound it made reminded Austin of a fresh steak being seered on a gril. A low hard grunt escaped Millers throat as he cartorized the wound, malong sure to burn himsel long enough to close the wound. The pain was immense, but he managed to suffer through it, dropping the clip to the ground once it was done.

A quick turn of tbe head caused Wills gaze to land on Max, her sound of alarm causing Will to think quickly. Thisnwas the first time this had happened, so he didnt want to alarm anyone unnecessarily. "Im fine.. i bit my tongue.." Will replied before coughing again. No blood this time. The tattooed man let his hand drag across his pants as he looked from Max to Luke, who also seemed like he was getting ill. The cold breeze caused Will to shiver, leaning a little bit closer to the fire.

Jo nodded before she picked up her pace, the silence being eery to her. The dim lights of the city slowly got closer and closer before finally they surrounded the girls, as she moved through the streets she could sense that something wasn't right, as she looked back at the girls she whispered,"Stay close.."before she headed through the streets and towards the direction where they heard the gunshots, as Jo got closer she could hear the screetches of whatever was out here getting closer and closer towards them. Joey turned and looked around,"I think the gun shots warned whatever else is out there, we need to get to cover, the faster we do maybe the more of an advantage we have.."she said quickly but quietly as her gaze moved between them,"we aren't there yet so either we move faster or we take cover now.."

-----

Haven moved through the streets. Her leg screamed at her to stop and look at it, the pain was almost too much for Haven but she knew she needed to get further, the further South she got the better her chances at finding Will was. As she pressed down once again on her injured leg, the leg gave out slightly from pain, a small cry escaped her lips before she fell onto the road.

However her leg had other plans clearly, as she sat down on her backside she brushed her hands off before she pulled off her backpack and quickly unzipped it, as she looked through it Haven made sure to be as quiet as she could. When she found the gauze wrap she zipped the bag back up before she wrapped her leg,"That should do it for now.."

As she stood back up she used the car beside her before she started to walk again,"I'm coming.."she whispered in the wind.

River and Riley were quiet while the food was cooking and the rest of the group talked amounts themselves. Once it was warm enough, River announced the food being ready and set down the metal scraps that she had picked out to use as plates. After the siblings ate their portions, they both sat back and once again went back to observing the group.

After a few moments of sitting back and watching the rest of the group, Riley reached up and touched his head with a furrowed brow. A feeling of dizziness came over him slowly, and then hit him all at once. He blinked a few times, sitting forward and hunching over, trying to find a way to subdue his lightheadedness.

River was concerned with her brothers sudden movements and gently placed a hand on his back. "Ri... you okay?" She questioned as she raised a brow.

It took Riley a moment to reply, before he slowly nodded. He didn't want to worry River. She was always so dramatic when it came to him feeling bad. Maybe he would be lucky and it was just fatigue. However with the few coughs and sniffles that he had heard from Luke and Will, something told him that this was most likely not just fatigue.

Sinclair had remained silent for the rest of the trek towards town mostly because her throat was burning. This thing was getting more serious..The pain was more intense and it took more effort to speak now. Hopefully they could find someone that had some kind of medical experience. That it she'll have to find a way to deal with this thing without alarming the others. Her gaze shifted between the two of them as they walked, the sense to protect them was steadily growing stronger as well. If something wanted to cause them harm then she'd deal with it and keep them out of danger. Those sunset eyes settled on Joey as she felt a strange warmth emanating from her chest. Damned feelings have to get in the way of things. Joey...was like her in a way...She had similarities to Angel..it was easier to ignore before but now her head was messing with her.

With a disturbed sigh she moved ahead of the two of she stayed low and made sure to keep an eye out. The close they got to town the harder she held onto that rifle of hers. Soon enough Joey spoke up asking if they showed hurry or get to cover. Sin had a bad feeling and looking from side to side she could see a few places that could be defended." There...fire...escape.." Sin pointed out as it seemed like it led to a ledge they could atleast stay at for a few moments. The sound of screeching grew closer and the young sniper ushered her companions towards the ladder. She didn't feel safe being on the ground anymore, her instincts told her to get high.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Maxine kept her wide eyes aimed at Will as he spoke and tried to say he was simply fine. Bullshit he bit his tongue. There wasn't anything she could do if he wasn't going to admit it or anything. Just to be on the safe side she stood up and moved towards the other side of the fire. If Will was sick or something she didn't want to catch it and die. The youngest tended to be more susceptible to illness and all kinds of stuff. Slowly she sat back down and rest her hooded head on the ground once more. Her eyes staring up into the sky as her mind wandered just a little bit. A tired feeling started flowing through her body as her eyes grew tired. Once they were closed she drifted off into a nice and deep sleep, for getting everything she'd been through so far.

Joey heard the sigh from Sin as she followed behind the woman closely. As Sin pointed out a fire escape ladder she nodded and moved towards it before pulling it down and climbing up, as she did she too felt that the ground wasn't the best choice to be right now. As she got to the roof she climbed up and moved towards the edge before she scanned the night, it wasn't easy to see with little lighting but Joey thought she saw someone or something moving within the shadows of the streets.

As she turned her gaze downwards she whispered,"Hurry! This thing is moving fast!"her heart was beginning to beat faster and faster.

Mia followed the two older women silently as the screeching grew louder and louder, time itself seemed to fly by because before she knew it they came to the edge of a town. Growls and screeches of the Nuker's were all over and a part of Mia was terrified, but if she was right about her mud idea then maybe she could walk around if she stayed silent enough. With Sin ducking next to a building and Joey whispered something, "wait...you to go up...I know it's stupid but I gotta see if I'm right about this mud thing" she nods and before the two can do anything she slowly begins to walk down the street.

A minute passed as she as she attempted to keep her breathing even and low enough that it wouldn't bring unwanted attention, she seemed to be okay. That was until a growl caused her to stop, glancing around without turning or moving her head she just managed to spot what looked like a dog. This dog, however, was thin and hairless with boils all over it, along with it it's left eye bulged from it's skull it was so large. It snarled and growled showing it's teeth, and Mia stopped breathing as the creature limped to her sniffing at her and growling more.

"Please no...I'm just a mound of mud, good doggy" she mutters softly, which was a stupid idea as the creatures bloody red ears perked up and it began to bark and jumped at her. Mia, just barely dodging the creature, swings her further arm around and hits the creature in the side of the head making it yelp and fall away from her. It was at this time she took off in a sprint to the nearest open car, closing the door just as the creature jumped at her. It scratched and barked loudly, and soon a small group of Nuker's were in the streets and surrounding the car.

_______________________________________________

Ami let out a sigh as she kept an eye on the distant fire, which mainly stayed in the same place. However, when she let out a yawn and turned back to the group and slowly made her way off the roof of the van. "Alright next watch up" she points to the top of the van before walking over to sit down just outside of the group, but closest to Will. He seemed to be shaking a little and with a small sigh she took of her leather jacket and tossed it at him, "if you're relapsing I'm gonna shoot you again" she mutters before laying flat on her back looking to the night sky.

Sinclair stayed at the bottom watching as Joey hurried up the fire escape and made it to the roof. She turned her gaze back and found Mia telling them to go on up so she can test her theory. In hell that would happen, she wasn't going to let anything happen to any of them so she stayed right there. Her gaze shifted from the top to were Joey was, the ladder, and back to Mia her mind running at a thousands miles per second. She didn't like this one bit but something had already appeared so it wasn't like she could do or say anything. The panic and worry was eating her up causing her throat to flare up with pain and it became slightly harder to breath. She didn't need to deal with stuff like this right now...but she wasn't leaving anyone behind.

Sin watched the scene, it seemed like the dog was going to leave when Mia had to speak up. Even the sniper could pick it up and before her body allowed her to move both were on the run. The young woman being the way she was followed after and soon enough more trouble showed up. The barking of the messed up dog triggered a group of nukers to come waltzing around the corner surrounding the car. Why did Mia have to do things like this...why couldn't she listen to them? Two options stood there at the moment, head back to the ladder and wait till morning hoping Mia was safe...or play the hero card. Her condition wasn't exactly the best for the hero card but...She couldn't leave the young girl to fend for herself.

Wrapping the rifle around her body the familiar metal on metal sound rang out as the machete was unsheathed. This drew two of them towards her as they snarled and growled at their prey. Sin let a distorted sound escape her throat which seemed to confuse them for a moment. Taking the chance she struck them down with two swings of the bladed weapon. Air was already stuck in her throat and she cleared it twice before moving. Pushing herself beyond what it felt like she could handle Sin kept swinging until the small roaming group were dead. With the world spinning and air not reaching her lungs Sinclair fell flat onto the ground. Her body felt hot and heavy as their was a metallic taste in her mouth. She leaned up against the car trying to breath as she he forgotten about the dog that was circling the car.

Jo's eyes went wide when both Mia and Sin disappeared,"Fuck!"she said before she climbed back over the edge and down the ladder before she followed Sin, however as Joey got closer she could hear barking followed by the sound of the screetching and snarls. As she stopped, Jo looked up at the night sky,forgive me..she thought before she turned the corner with her gun pointed forward, seeing Sin running towards the car Joey decided to try and distract the mutated dog and the Nukers.

As she aimed her gun at the dog, she fired one shot, the dog let out a whimper before turning and seeing Joey, without paying much attention to Sin the mutated aninal rushed towards Joey who fired five more times before she turned towards the other sounds,"Get Mia!"she said before she stepped in the direction and started to fire her gun, however the creatures stuck to the shadows ahead, making it harder for Jo to see.

Haven felt weak, hungry, tired and cold. Her leg had bled through the bandages as well, but Haven knew she had to keep going. But she also knew that she wasn't getting anywhere without help of a vehicle, as Haven entered a small flower shop she looked around before she sat down behind the counter, maybe she could rest for a bit, she thought as she pulled off the backpack.

As she unzipped the bag she pulled out some canned fruit. As she opened it and sat back to eat it with her fingers, Haven listened to the silence, she was beginning to go crazy, sometimes she would hear voices that weren't there anymore if she sat there long enough. Her mind, making them up to soothe her need to hear them again, as she chewed her food she caught sight of the walkie she used back at Eden.

Reaching out she picked up the walkie, and without thinking much of it, she pressed the button and spoke,"If anyone is out there, maybe listening, I'm kind of... stuck,"she let out a small laugh as she looked down at her leg,"and need some help, maybe this is a long shot, maybe no one is out there, or maybe you're a psycho who is hungry and eats people, either way I'm on Denver Drive in Lucy's Flower Shop."

As she set the walkie down she picked up another piece of fruit and plopped it into her mouth, chewing slowly as she waited for an answer.
