Silence. It stayed that way for a good hour or so, the onkt noise being made was from Millers breathing. It seemed the wound stopped bleeding, sort of. His formerly white button down almost completely crimson at this point. The elongsted silence shattered from the screeches of the nukers, the sound of a dog barking following it. -Sounds like more than one..- Miller thought as he leaned against the counter of the post office. Slightly he leaned forward to look out the window a sudden gunshot causing him to jump.. wait.. a gunshot. Other people.

It was risky, they could be here to steal loot. But Miller had to take the chance, or he would die alone out there. To be honest he never actually expected Haven to leave him without a second thought. With that he realised how little he weigjed on the girls mind. A small sigh. escaped hisnmouth as fivw morw shots rang out. Now was the time to go. Millwr stumbled from the post office intk a side alleyway. His feet followed the sound of the shots, the sourxe of the gunfire becoming clear pretty quickly.

The light was Dim but Miller could make out three figures, two next to a car and one inside. It seemed the three of then managed to clear out the small horde that had been giving him trouble. But if Miller was correct, noise would only bring more, leaving them fucked. "Hello?" Miller called frok the alleyway, his voixe a bit raspy from lack of fluids. "Can you help me please? More are coming, im injured, if you can help at all, please?" Miller pleaded, still cautiously lingering near the alleyway for a quick exit.

---
Wills eyes rolled over to take a look at Ami, another shiver sliding uo his spine as he leaned im closer to the fire. "I havent touched anything... not since the barracks.." Will responded in an even low tone, his eyes turning back to the fire to watch the flames dance in front of him. He thought about what Ami said, about him relapsing. It would be a lie if Will said he hadnt thought about it. Almist every day. But he made no gestured to fall back into that habit. A promise had been made, and Will planned on keeping it, whether she was alive or dead. "If you do shoot me again.. make sure its in the head." Will added, the corner of his eyes catching Amis expression, causing a smile to form.

Luke stood up, slowly, taking a second to gain his balance. He stepped awau from the warmth of the fire over to the van, leaning against the side of the cold metal. "Ill take next watch." A sniffle fell between the silence "i may only be half as good at it as you though.." Luke remarked as he adjusted the small blanket around himself.

Joey turned towards the voice as she heard it through the small spaces of silence, Jo looked over at Sin who was headed to the car safely now before she turned towards the alleyway, slowly she approached it before she caught sight of a figure in the dark, as she crept closer she realized she knew that voice and the man who it belonged to,"Agent Miller?"she spoke as a question before she saw his face,"what the fuck...?"she muttered as she looked around then down at him,"fuck sakes what happened?"she put his arm around her before she moved out of the alleyway.

Mia was just peaking her head up to see out the window to see Sin going crazy on the gathering of the Nukers and Joey firing at the dog thing that chased her originally. She was a little freaked out to be honest with the was Sin took out the creatures and when she was done all Mia could do was open the door of the car and look at Sin with a half smile, "you know I'm thinking that maybe I shouldn't talk when I have a Nuker nearby" she nods and gets out of the car. Looking at Sin a little closer she looks down knowing that what she did was stupid and in some way to make up for it she reaches into her pack and pulls out a water bottle offering it to her.

Glancing over to Joey she sees her helping someone from the alleyway, the man she helped looked like someone that she knew. It wasn't until they were in full view that her face went pale and she muttered the name, "Miller" the name felt surreal to her and she quickly began to look around before pulling out her gun and pointing it at Agent Miller. "Set him down, Joey" she says her arms shaking as she keeps the gun trained on Miller, "He's with that place...Lana's dead because of that place" she spits out the words angrily stepping closer to Joey holding Agent Miller.

Sinclair was a little out of it while it seemed that Joey had followed them and dealt with the dog creature. To be quite honest she didn't have the strength in her to have dealt with the beast. Her body felt like a furnace as sweat started dripping down her forehead and body. The metallic taste in her mouth got a little worse as she coughed, the din light showed sparkling bits of bright crimson sitting in her hand. Something was badly wrong and the young woman didn't have it in her to speak up. Not like she could, her throat felt absolutely raw and the heat was mainly coming from that location. She was silent as Mia spoke and sat down the water bottle beside her. Again she felt her strength gone so she couldn't communicate that there was an issue at the moment. Sin was somewhat sure there was something very wrong with her throat at the moment. The presence of strange warm fluids in her throat worried her as blood had already escaped her lips.

The sound of someone else coming over reached her ears and she stayed sitting watching as Joey and Mia dealt with Agent Miller. Agent Miller...it had been awhile since she heard and even thought about him. Casting a weak glance his way she noted that he didn't look all that well just like herself. The concern and worry flooded her system again as the thought of more nukers coming their way came up. Sin couldn't fight anymore, her body was weak and it felt like she was choking occasionally. It was her fault though...She figured she was sick ages ago..but she didn't say anything and pushed herself.

Sinclair took a greedy sip of the water to flush the fluids out of her throat. The bottle had a slight color change as the water mixed with her bloody saliva. Closing it she tried to move to stand, the moment she tried her legs gave out and she was on her knees. A coughing fit broke out as strange choking sounds escape her mouth as she spat out globs of blood and mucus. The mucus had a sickly yellow color...like an infection was present..just great...an idea formed in the young woman's mind as everything started going black. She had had an infection in her throat all these months, left untreated it finally reared its head and began causing chaos with her body. Her eyes shifted towards the girls for a moment as she fell to the ground. Her body having trouble breathing as it sputtered and tried to expel the bloody mucus trapped in her throat.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Joey knew that was true, she didn't need Mia reminding her that she had lost her sister to that place. As she set Miller down she looked at Mia,"Put the gun down Mia, he knows things, like who is alive.. we need him alive.. for now,"she nodded before she turned back to Miller then towards Sin, knowing neither one was up for a fight,"now first thing first we get the hell out of here before those things come!"she said before she turned towards the car,"I'm guessing we can't use that?"she asked as she pointed towards it. A car would be a quick escape and it would be easier to travel.

Haven waited for a response. As she did she finished off the fruit before setting the empty can down beside her, as she moved to get comfortable pain shot down her leg, a small whimper escaped her lips as the image of the creature attacking her flashed in her mind, followed by Miller and what she could make out of his injury.

As she remembered leaving Miller behind, her throat got tight, the man had grown on her in a weird way she looked up to him, almost like a role model, as she leaned her head back she felt the tear well up in her eyes,"Damn it.."she whispered softly before she wiped at her eyes.

Miller's eyes went wide as he recognized the three figures. It was a member of the LA group that camw to his side. Joanna?.. Joey! He was surprised to see any of them alive. But seeimg Mia was the one that got him. This girls had slrrsdy hated him before, but now she felt she had a reason.. and a gun.

Miller stopped when the gun was pointed in his direction, his eyes lay on Mia. "I had nothing to do with that... what happened back there.. Haven and I.. she wanted to find all of you.." Millers eyes shifted ahain when it seemed Sim when into some kind of coughing fit before hitting the group. "You need to help her or shes going to die.. you can be mad at me later.. but more are coming." Miller responded with a grunt as he shifted away from Joey, taking a step towards Mia and Sin as he held his wounded side.

A small whimper came from Jo's mouth when Miller said Haven's name. Her eyes began to water a bit at the thought of her friend being alive,"Haven... is alive..? Where is she ? Is she out here with you?"the questions flew out of her mouth before she heard Sin's coughing fit. The woman turned her glassy eyes towards her, a concerned look on her face,"We should get going I don't think Sin can stand out here too much longer,"she said as she realized the stress the situation at hand was causing her friend she looked at Mia.

"We need him alive Mia, come on please, lower the gun and let's get going, once we find Haven we can find your mom too, Will would have definitely told Haven were he would go if Eden didn't work out, and last you saw your mother was with him, so we need to get going."

Mia shook a little as several feelings ran through her, but she shook her head and put the gun down. "Fine...fine...but he's with Eden...he doesn't deserve to live" she sniffles out the words before turning to walk back over to Sin. Taking the older woman's hand she tugs at it a little looking up at her, "Sinclair...we have to go...Agent Miller is here and he says that doctor with Joey's group...Haven is here somewhere" she nods and keeps an eye out as she tries pulling her along.

".. If anyone is out there.." a low crackle came from across the fire. Wills ears perked up, his head tilting side to side to see where the noise came from. It sounded like a radio, the muffle voice triggering something in Wills brain. Forcing himself up Will hurried over to the twins, a hard cough causing him to pause before leaning towards them. "You have a radio? A working radio?" Will asked with anticipation a slight anger in his voice. His eyes gazed down the the bag, the one making the noise. '..stuck.. no one out there...psycho..the broken transmission crackled.' Will felt his heart drop. That was Havens voice, no question. He felt the urge to snatch the radio, but he waited anxiously as he looked between the two twins, his jackets bundled up around him.

Ami let out a sigh as she sat up looking at Will, she may have acted as if he'd disturbed her from sleeping but in truth she was a little cold and the ground was a little to hard. Hearing the broken radio transmission she raised a brow and looked from the twins to Will, something about that voice was familiar. "Is that...Haven?" she asks a little confused and moved to stand, "hey hand over the radio now" she nods walking over to the two holding out her hand.

It could be nothing, but then again she couldn't take the chance with Will looking to be sick like he is. The thought that if that was Haven then maybe others made it out, or maybe they were trapped in Eden. "Will if that's...look if that radio is cracking that bad then it means that it's on a personal radio not what Eden had..." she nods to Will.
