((I had to read everything out loud about five times before understanding what happened so feel free to jump in whenever if you want or don't if you don't want to. :) ))
Westly ran down the street. A horde of diseased chase behind him. "Addam, keep up!" he panted, "I will not lose you like I lost your mother!" He ran until he reached a small mobile home development. He broke his way through a door and shut it quickly blocading the cracked wooden door with the heaviest things he could find. "We're safe now, Addam. Sit down, rest. We're safe."
Keirnan heard someone running adn yelling and heard a crash, like someone had broken in. She clutched Kaylay's hand tighter and moved closer to her, looking around too see what had just happened.
Dylan made his way cautiously to the house. Jo was still clutched to his chest, her tiny fingers gripping as tightly at her shirt as she could.
"H-hello?" He called cautiously.
((Westly is not at the same house guys. He's in a mobile home nowhere near the house we're all congregated in...))
((Oh, OK..well the crash could be something else...sorry 'bout that))
Keirnan heard someone speak outside, she let go of Kaylay and tip toed forward to the door, Th einfected had a specific speech pattern, this person was speaking normally. Keirnan reached up and trie dto open the door, but she could only barely reach the knob and the door had been locked.
Keirnan looked at the others,
"They soun' good, let them in." she said.
Amy peaked through the small window. Keirnan was right, they sounded normal. "What do you think Kayley?" Amy asked, after all she was the adult here.
"Are you infected?"Kayley asked cautiously. She thought for a moment. "How many are you and are there infected anywhere near?" She had to keep the children safe afterall, whether that be from the infected, or from other humans. She moved toward the door carefully sheilding the girls behind her.
Jas could hear the people inside speaking, but not in her direction. She figured there must be someone else trying to get in. Carefully she turned around to face the house and peered through a small gap in the wood planks covering it. She could see, just slightly, the figures of a woman and two smaller children. It was pretty obvious by their actions that they weren't infected. Still, Jas stayed quiet and decided to watch them a little longer.
Amy was trying her hardest to be brave. She didn't want to run away from all of this, yet she didn't want to become infected. Amy clung to Kayley's side as she walked towards the door. "Do you think they are infected?" She asked quitely.
"I-I'm not infected. Neither is my daughter. The infected aren't anywhere near." Dylan answered as Jo made a tiny whimpering sound as she clutched at his shirt. He moved his hand to stroke at her hair lightly, trying to comfort her even though his hands were shaking slightly.
Amy ventured foward slightly curious and peaked through the small window. The man looked exashted and he clutched a small child to his chest. Amy's heart went out to the two. "Kayley, they aren't infected, let them in!" Amy tried to undo the door herself, but she was to small to slide the bolt back.
Keirnan heard what they said she wante dto help open the door but Amy couldn't even reach the bolt so Keiran knew she couldn't. She kept clinging to Kaylay's side and watching the door she looked up at her adn smiled,
"He's got a little girl." she said upon hearing a tiny whimper through the door, "You'll let them in right?" she asked.
Kayley hesitated. She pulled the girls away from the windows and guarded them behind her back. Slowly she unlocked the front door. "Girls, go wait in the kitchen," she said authoritatively, "Now." She waited until the girls were safely in the kitchen to take hold of the firepoker before letting the people in.
Dylan stepped in cautiously with Jo up in his arms. He was tired, run completely ragged and utterly exhausted. He gave the stranger a wide eyed look and a grateful nod.
Keirnan peeked out from the kitchen, she saw the man enter, he was holding a little girl. Keirnan stepped out and went over to Kaylay, standing up on her tip toes and grabbing Kaylay's hand,
"Hi!" she said cheerily to the newcomer, he looked tired and like he was upset,
"What's wrong?' she asked.
Dylan looked down at the tiny girl. His eyes seemed to get sadder at her question. HE didn't answer her, instead, closing his eyes and holding tighter to Jo.
Jo looked around with eyes that were once curious and full of life, but now seemed dead.
Keirnan looked at the girl in the man's arms, they both seemed sad, she peered up at them. Keirnan didn't know what to say, she looked at the girl,
"I'm Keirnan, what's your name?" she asked the girl. Keirnan couldn't tell if the girl was younger or older than she was.
"This is Jo." Dylan practically whispered, his voice hoarse. He held Jo tighter to his chest. "I'm Dylan."
Amy came foward with Keirnan. Once it was clear to her that they weren't infected Amy squeled and hugged them both. She drew back smiling and bouncing on the soles of her feet. "I'm Amy. Hi its so nice to see people who aren't infected. Jeez, it really does take over your life doesn't it? The fear I mean. Oh well, hey you look tired. Why don't you sit down?" Amy stood on tip toe, putting her hands on his shoulders and tried to push him down into a sitting position. "You really need to sit down and have some water. Kayley, do we have any water?" Amy asked.
