Sure..

]-uncaps water thoughtfully and nods- 

At least it’s something to possibly look forward to. Best to hope for the best and prepare for the worst. 

Thanks, kid. Do your best. 

-wanders out. 

Yeah bye..

-sits down-

….We shouldn’t give up.

-sighs-

ask-the-72-survivor:

-nods-

…Is there any spare water around here, by any chance? I need to wet my whistle before I head out to make a pep talk.  

We have about enough water for another two weeks I think… if everyone only drinks half a bottle a day. Which is very unhealthy by the way.

-hands him a bottle-

Hopefully when we get to that safe place there will be a lot of water. And food. ….And a cure…

ask-the-72-survivor:

-frowns a bit to himself, wishing the same. Pats his shoulder- 

Tell you what. Our next destination is about a 2 day’s drive away factoring in a modest amount of rest stops for the sick and any minor troubles we might encounter. We have about 6 mouths to feed, double rations for the 2 sick, and extra water for the 3 infected. 

Since you’re the cook, I’ll let you do the math on that to figure out just how much food we need to find before we can make the trip with confidence. 

Once you have all that figured, you, Dave, and me can start searching. 

Sheesh I didn’t ask for math homework!

…But I guess I can do that. It’s better than sitting around waiting to leave anyways. Thanks.

ask-the-72-survivor:

Please don’t deprive a bored old man of his jokes, BP. I’ll fire you.

Yeah okay…Sorry.

-clears throat-

I’d like to go help look for more food. But uh….  with all due respect sir…

It’s gonna be hard to feel motivated at all if some of that food isn’t going to be…

…travel food.

Got one of those handy smart phones to find a grocery store?

Please don’t make technology jokes, Mr. 72. You’re too old.

ask-the-72-survivor:

youngbeansprout:

My cough uh… -shrugs- Audrey gave me some medicine and it’s actually getting better so I’m not too worried about that.

….We got to this place just fine without that dumb old RV. Meanwhile we’re all sick…tired…hungry…in..fected…

-huffs loudly-

If I knew how to drive I’d have just went off on my own by now!

Hold your horses, there, Firepole. 

Waiting around isn’t healthy or fun, but it’s a lot safer than trying to hoof it as an army of one. We’ve got more than just a broken RV to contend with here. There’s a lot of grieving and fear—stuff people can’t be rushed through.. 

-sighs and slips into the shed, opening a box-

But that works out because there are other things the rest of us need to do. I’m giving this place a cursory glance and it looks like we’re not exactly set for a Thanksgiving feast.

Is this really all there is?

-rolls his eyes and sighs- Fine, fine.

-peeks into box-

Yep that’s all we have left. There might be some food left if we go scavenge for it…

But given our luck lately I really doubt there’s anything left here at all.


ask-the-72-survivor:

-chuckles and nods ever so slightly in agreement-

Nothing besides that. 

Well if I find a genie, I’ll make getting a move on my first wish, how’s that? As it stands, every ordinary human effort to advance is pretty much falling flat. 

-pauses and looks at him-

Has your cough gotten any worse?

My cough uh… -shrugs- Audrey gave me some medicine and it’s actually getting better so I’m not too worried about that.

ask-the-72-survivor:

youngbeansprout:

-mumbles under his breath-

I don’t really feel much like hanging out with any of those guys right now.

-casts a glance into the shed-

Is someone getting under your skin? 

No Mr. 72 it’s just fine… -coughs-

I mean besides the fact that we’re completely out of food and everyones getting sick from just sitting around doing nothing but waiting instead of actually going to the only good real lead to a safe place that we’ve ever gotten.

Nothing besides that.
