Luhan decided to wander around the city, in search of the living. Cautiously, he made his way down the neighborhood street. Out of the corner of his eye, he noticed movement from a seemingly abandoned house. Luhan quickly crossed the street and drew his gun from its holster as he peered through the window. A female figure sat on the couch and Luhan figured she didn’t look.. well, dead. He sighed out of relief, but just as he was about to knock on her window, a loud growling knocked him out of his short peace. He turned, quickly shooting the zombie that was an arm’s reach from him. His eyes widened as he noticed the horde coming down the road. Luhan took a deep breath and slammed his body against the side of the house, forcing his way through the wall. Staring straight at the stranger, he whispered, “We need to get out of here.”
Suzy jumped as she heard gunfire, her pen streaking a long dark mark across the page she had been writing on. Standing quickly she took a step toward the window before suddenly taking one back as someone crashed through. She stared at the male with wide eyes, confusion setting before she heard the loud growls growing closer by the minute. Like pieces of a puzzle clicking into place, recognition flashed in her eyes as she grabbed her bag, gun already out of its holster and ready to fire “Quickly! Out the back door. It’s the only other exit.” she grabbed the stranger’s hand, despite knowing nothing about him and dragged him further into the house, over to the back door, yanking it open and making a dash out into the open before the undead could realize where they were..
Suzy sighed as she drew open the makeshift curtains from the large,broken, window, revealing the dreary scene outside, the early morning air hitting her in the face. To be honest, the only reason she even knew it was morning was because the air held a dewy moisture to it that didn’t appear in any other time of day. She wondered why she even cared about things like that at this point, it was so trivial. But she supposed that’s what’s kept her sane for so long. She’s been fighting so hard for normalcy that she doesn’t have time to go crazy. Suzy slowly sauntered away from the window and sat on an old couch in the corner of the room, with her journal in one hand and her pen in the other. She had wanted to leave this place days ago, but something in her body kept telling her no. Something is willing her. pulling her. to stay here. Something is sitting in her stomach like a rock, telling her to wait it out a few more days and she never ignores her instinct so she does as she’s told but hopes it’s worth it. Until the feeling lifts, she continues to sit on that couch, in comfortable silence and write in that journal, perhaps humming a little to herself as the day wears on into night once again..
He smiled as she scooted closer, helping her wrap the blanket around her shoulders. “Is it covering you?” He asked, still passing her more blanket so that he did not hog the warmth. She glanced to him and began to talk in her soft voice as he continued to watch the shadows for their safety. Nodding slightly, he looked to her. “Wow. Y’know that could’ve ended really bad! You should be more careful, what would have happened if you’d knocked yourself out completely…those zombies could’ve eaten you.” He laughed a little to lighten the atmosphere. “I mean, could you imagine dancing ‘Breath’ thriller style?” He began to dance slightly, joking about more, trying to forget that those undead even existed.
She nodded with a small smile, covering herself up fully “Yes it is. Thank you~” only after she had wrapped herself with the blanket had she realized that she had been shivering before. With a melancholic sigh she nodded once again as he spoke “I know. And I almost didn’t escape. Lucky for me I can still move pretty fast with an injured ankle.” she was quiet for a moment before she spoke again “I’ve been more careful ever since.” she glanced over at him, laughing as she watched him do his zombie style Breathe dance, grateful that he was trying to be light even in a time of such darkness. “Ah that would have been a hit!” she laughed.
Di blinked her dark orbs slowly, poking her lips out before shifting her gaze to the side. She swayed her head and tapped her toes on the ground while Suzy took some time to think it over. Darae could hear the theme for Jeopardy playing in her mind, it fit with the current situation. When Suzy spoke up once more, her attention was snagged and the tune in her head stopped. The other girl was apologizing. Di gave a short snort and waved a hand. “Yah~ don’t worry about it.” Her lips curled into a wicked grin. “If those things do try to get in, we can always hop on up to the roof.” She wiggled her fingers and gave a half laugh. “Play the look alike game.”
Suzy smiled in relief. She had been worried that it might annoy the older female if she had to be kept back as she herself knew how frustrating it was to have to stop searching for a number of days. A look of confusion filtered across her face for a moment at Di’s mention of the game before recognition lit up her eyes and she let out a sudden laugh “Ah~ That game is always best played with two people after all.” she grinned. Perhaps these few days wouldn’t be so terrible after all..
