"Hmm, true." Ruby said in response to Ami's comment about gunshots dissuading people from coming near them, again reminding her that zombie apocalypse logic did no necessarily apply to the situation they were in. Then again, as Ami also pointed out, the only kind of people who would head in the direction of a gunshot were those who're either crazy or have enough firepower to take on people with guns. Neither of whom were the kind of people Ruby wanted to bump into any time soon.
In any case, Ami still suggested that they head somewhere else, a sentiment Ruby agreed with. Regardless of how secure this area seemed, you only had to look at the corpse outside their building to realise that it was no safer than anywhere else on the island. At this point, she was inclined to believe that there were no true safety zones on the island, so it probably didn't make that big a difference where they decided to head. Plus, the further she got from that ominous power station the better.
"Town sounds as good a place to go as any other. As long as we find a place to stay with a roof over our heads it probably doesn't matter where we head off to."
As Ruby continued to examine the map Ami had unfolded, she suddenly felt a hand placed gently on her shoulder, her head turning to Ami just as she began to offer some comforting words.
She paused for a moment, not entirely sure how to react at first. Eventually though she found herself responding with a half-forced smile of her very own.
"Yeah, I... I guess you're right." she began, gulping nervously. "Th-Thanks, I think I might have needed that."
Ruby smiled again. A part of her was glad that she'd found Ami when she did. She was quite possibly one of the nicest girls she'd ever met, and the thought of someone like Gavin or Miranda finding her alone and defenceless appalled her. Not only that, had it not been for her being there when Ruby was at her very worst, god knows how long it would have taken for her to snap out of it.
"I'm sorry again about how I acted earlier. I know I've probably not been the most pleasant person to be around at times, but I... I really do appreciate you being there and all. Yesterday I thought I'd be better off alone, but after what just happened I... I'm not sure how I'd of coped without having someone like you around to... I don't know, it's just nice having someone to talk to, you know?"
Much to her surprise, after quickly glancing into a nearby mirror she realised that she was actually blushing.
"A-Anyway, we should probably be heading off." she said in a fluster, hoisting her bag over her back and heading out via the front door.
"If we're lucky, we might be able to find somewhere nicer to stay before nightfall..."
