Anna had taken it upon herself to search the house the two friends now occupied for a bit of food. It was important for them to have some extra provisions, right? She looked through the kitchen cabinets t first, finding a few boxes of uncooked noodles, and a box of raisins. The refrigerator only held a small bottle of vinegar that was useless to them, so she let it. She made her way to the pantry and found a can of corn, and a few spices. Cinnamon, pepper, oregano, and paprika. Nothing else of use was there, so she crammed what she found into her daypack before moving to the upstairs.
The stairs creaked eerily as she climbed them and it sent shivers up her spine. She tried to ignore it though. She found her way into the bathroom and looked around. The medicine cabinet was mostly empty, holding but a comb and shaving crème. They really gutted the place. The bedrooms were no better, full of useless junk, though she was able to find a pair of raincoats that must have belonged to the previous owners of the house. She took them with her. She began to make her way back to Huy and handed him a raincoat happily.
I found them upstairs. We can use them if we ever have to leave! she smiled, but that smile was soon ripped from her features as the next announcement came on. 14 more had died yesterday. Fourteen
some of them she knew from Franklin. Some of the killers too. It was kind of sad. Then Danya announced that the residential district was to become a danger zone and she hurriedly stuffed all the food into her daypack. She slipped on the coat and hung the pack over her shoulder.
Hurry, we can hide in the forest! She yelled as she sprinted to the front door. She ran from the house and thought she saw another person across the street, but wasnt sure. She waited for Huy to catch up and ran full speed out of the housing area.
Zilya Merchenkov wasnt sure what to believe anymore. Shed hidden here for days now. Now she had to leave? How asinine. Really. If he wanted them all dead he should just blow their collars already. She was so sick of this. She sighed audibly as she stepped out of the house she once occupied. She was almost immediately soaked and she really didnt care. A door opened on the other side of the street and she saw someone run out. She quickly ducked behind a well placed tree and waited for the duo to run off. She looked after them, and decided it was best for her to leave as well.
Nothings ever simple, is it?
Anna continued in the forest
