Allowing my eyes to scan the water close by, I try to keep my thoughts focused; I would be happy when this day was over, hopefully just getting off the boat and settling into the building would help us all feel better about leaving the city, even after two weeks it wasn’t something that seemed real in my mind - the idea of never going back was something I really didn’t know how to feel about, sure I’d left before, but never this distance and now with the new information from Lex, it was even more confusing.
Listening to Zak I nod, although I am slightly surprised that he’s accepting my invitation to join us. “That’s fine, I think we’ll be sticking around for a little while longer, it seems a few people have already wandered away from the group, but join us whenever you want.” I say with a small smile. Hearing his next comment I look towards him “Sounds like a great idea, I hope you’re patient though. I’m not entirely sure anyone knows how to fish.” I tell him honesty, “We’re going to need all the food we can get though.”
I turn my head when I hear movement on the boat behind me, noticing Lex approaching I sigh quietly, if this was round two I wasn’t sure I was ready for it; I was too tired for arguing. Listening to him when he reaches me I stare at him for a moment, slightly stunned by his words, was that an apology from Lex? Looking at him I shake my head “Honestly Lex, we need to stick together right now, you know that as much as I do.” I say and motion my head towards Zak, “I was just informing Zak of our plans to head towards the abandoned building, he’s going to join us in a little while.” I explain. “We need to figure out what happens next, but first we need everyone back here so we can get off the beach and somewhere safer. I really don’t like being out in the open like this.” I admit.
