Derek nodded once and went quiet for a while since there was nothing particularly useful he could say. He just kept driving over the rough terrain until they finally got around the city and he could get on the road again.
Derek slowed as they approached. He was looking for a drive around the truck could handle. In the end he followed the tracks left by other vehicles to have driven around also.
Suddenly the figures nearest them stiffened and swung around before making a simultaneous wild dash for them.
"Fair enough. Like I said, it's not too far out from the route to the villa. We can make it work."
He was assuming that worst case they could siphon fuel from other vehicles into the truck. So far there wasn't much sign of competing forces.
They would drive a while longer until they came upon a small, traffic clogged town. The vehicles were silent - cut off or drained of fuel. A mile and a half or so before the town itself was nothing but halted, abandoned cars.
Derek pulled off to the shoulder of the road to drive around it all. There was evidence that others had done the same - tracks and ruts in the dust.
Then as he drove closer to the town itself there was movement - what looked like people shuffling about.
The border was overrun when Damian and Derek got there. It was horrible. The creatures were en masse. They had seen them as they crossed the country over the past few days but that didn’t make trying to walk through the place any better.
“I told you we should have left earlier,” Damian said to his brother a little frustrated as he held the officers shotgun and the continued to quietly work their way through border control.
Alice had grown up in England under a strict house because of what she was and what she meant to her family being their only female daughter. She was the only one that could continue their legacy which was a lot of pressure so as soon as she had enough money she took off and started traveling the world with just her backpack and her friend Lamont.
That's how they ended up in this shitty little town when the beater they bought in Florida broke down and the mechanic told them it would take more money than the car was worth to fix it.
So they were stuck there until they saved up enough cash to get a new one. So what was the best option? They went to a bar to drink.
Alice grinned to him almost stupidly for a moment. "Have you told your parents that I was involved in setting the barn on fire yet?" she asked him almost cheekily as she continued to hold his wrists above his head.
Violet didn't move to get off of him, instead she kissed him again. Eventually he got the hint and slid his hands around her ass and lifted them both up. She wrapped her legs around him, hiking her dress up higher to keep it from tearing.
