I was actually talking to Knoob recently about one. Does he count as a veteran?

Yes, he does.

“Well, it wasn’t really my choice. Before coming up here, the only family I had after the breakout was Gerry. It’s great that he’s a go-getter and all, but we’ve been through so much that… it’d be nice if he left the fighting for someone else this time.” I take a moment to think about what I’d just said as I gather some canned fruit. “You were there with us in the island, so you know exactly what I’m talking about. I support the man with all the decisions he makes because I know he’s smart and that he knows what he’s doing, but sometimes I wish I wasn’t caught up in the middle of it all, you know? It’s exhausting being his girlfriend at times, and the pressure that comes with it can become unbearable. But I deal with it. I mean, I’ve had no real problems up to now.”

I start putting together a fruit bowl in the center of the table, thinking of serving it with some graham crackers on the side.

“I’m sorry for complaining, I’m sure that’s the last thing you want to deal with right now.”

“Hey, enough with the weapons talk… you don’t need to be thinking about that right now. Just focus on getting better, okay?” I smile down at him as I pat his arm before getting up to leave. What a perfect display of the typical battle-crazed man.

Outside in the hall, I begin to make my way to the stairs when I notice Carlos blocking my path.

“Oh, good morning. I hope I didn’t wake you.” I motion for him to follow me back downstairs. “Listen, I’m going to make some breakfast for all of us, but since we have limited supplies, the rations will be rather small. Those two up there are in recovery move and who knows long it’ll take for them to recover.”

I open the door and walk in, noticing Gerry sitting up as if he was expecting me. “Good morning, darling. I hope you’re feeling better.”

I look over at Alex who turns away from the sound of my voice. The man sure liked to sleep, and I wouldn’t want to be the one who interferes with it.

“Are you hungry?” I whisper, trying not to be too loud. “I can whip up some quick breakfast for all of us and just save Alex’s and Carlos’ portion for later.” I sit on the bed to give him a light kiss on his bruised forehead. “Depending on how fast you two recover, we may have to come up with a plan to move out very soon.”

It takes a moment after the sun hits my eyes for me to fully wake up, and I groan in frustration at how tired I felt. It’s true that I’d been up for most of the night, but I felt like someone needed to take on the role of guarding this place. After a light stretch, I quietly walk past Carlos who’s still asleep on the couch. At least he’s catching up on some much-needed rest.

Upstairs, I lightly knock on the door hoping that either Gerry or Alex is awake. Even though I was exhausted beyond reason, I wanted to see if they were doing well so we could at least plan our next course of action.

“Well, you two get your rest then. I’ll be downstairs if you need me.”

I head for the door, looking back at Gerry and Alex once more before leaving. It seems like they’d finally learned to get along after the truth was spoken about the accident. This was good news for me as I would not be stuck in the middle anymore. The last thing I need is to have to pick sides.

Once downstairs, I pass the kitchen and notice an empty glass. Carlos must have helped himself to a drink and some snacks. Who knows how long he’d gone without food and water. I exit through the side door and find myself in the dead cold of the night. Nobody else had made it back yet, which left me a bit troubled since it was advised we act quickly to aid in any we could against the invasion.

Suddenly, I hear a crack behind me. I turn around, pressing my back against the wall to keep hidden from whatever was around the corner. What looks like a teenage zombie slowly walks past me, completely oblivious to my presence. There’s a pipe a few feet away, and I make a move for it as I rush to pick it up. The zombie growls in response, suddenly moving faster as she tries to catch me. I wait in place for her to get close enough and then once she’s within striking distance, I swing the pipe hard enough to knock her down. A few more hits do the trick before blood and other remains stain the snow. Maybe it was best if I stayed indoors for now.

Alex

He wakes up to a dull pain on his arm, and almost instantly he’s able to vividly recall how it happened. Alex dwells on it for a moment before looking over to notice Gerald lying on the bed opposite to his.

“I see you are alive as well. What do you make of our fight, Gerald? Do you consider it a draw?”

Alex chuckles at the thought but a sharp pain cuts him off. He rubs the side of his stomach and flinches on contact. It appears as if this recovery would be a slow one, but at least he survived to see another day.


Emilie

“Hey, you are awake as well. Glad to see you’re both up because I have some news. Gerry, remember Carlos? Well, he’s currently downstairs having a snack. He was the one outside calling out for us.”

I realize Alex is clueless as to what I’m talking about, so I decide to fill him in with a little bit of background information. After I’m done, I take a seat to rest for a moment. Just because I was able to somehow pull both men back inside and look after them doesn’t mean I could keep it up for long.

Emilie

“Yes, of course I remember you. I just wasn’t expecting you here, out of all places. Talk about a small world, huh?”

A light rain starts to fall and I motion for Carlos to follow me. As we head back inside, I explain to him that it was just Gerry, Alex, and myself in the building.

“The original group from back in the island has thinned down. Seth is here, as well as Abbey and Alex West, but I’ve no idea where they are at the moment. There’s also some guy and girl who joined us for a bit, but they’ve gone off since they’re looking for a Russian politician’s kid. Anyway, Gerry and my uncle are upstairs. They were involved in a fight and both are injured pretty badly. I’m gonna go up there and check on them, but make yourself at home for the time being. We’re expected to leave soon so make the most of your time here.”

I head back upstairs hoping that Alex had woken up by now.

“Hold that thought.”

I rush to the window to see who was calling out for us. A figure is walking by on the street, but I can’t make out who it is. It’s better if I go out to meet them though, just to be on the safe side. After ordering Gerry to stay in bed, I make my way downstairs and zip up my jacket as I step outside. The man keeps walking, and I follow behind with some distance between us before my curiosity gets the best of me.

“Who are you?”

Emilie

Event though the rag is a light shade of red, I continue to use it as I try to stitch Alex’s deepest wound. Both him and Gerry left quite the damage on each other, but luckily, they both exhausted themselves to the point of no return. This was good for me though, as it gave me the opportunity to play doctor without having to deal with them directly. Their fight replays in my mind as I continue to work, making me relive the events that led them to their current state. I surprise myself when I am not able to feel the least bit of remorse. I mean, I could have stopped them if I really wanted to, so why didn’t I?

After wrapping his arm up with a bandage, I put the everything aside and look over at Gerry. He was slowly waking up, so I walk over to sit next to him on the bed.

“Hey, how are you feeling?” I softly place a hand on his forehead and push back some of the hair that had fallen out of place.

Alex

“Whoa!”

Alex jumps back to recover. He notices Gerald going for a horizontal strike and taking a deep breath in, he takes aim and throws the taiga at center mass, hoping that he’d get a hit or that eventually, the weapon would end up far from Gerald’s reach.

Alex

Naturally, Alex tries to make a grab for the sheath but instead, he falls to one knee upon being kicked. That was a good move on Gerald’s behalf, but unfortunately for him this fight was far from over. He quickly gets back on his feet and uses the momentum to deliver an uppercut. Alex takes advantage of Gerald’s brief vulnerable state to grab the back of his head and bring it down hard on his knee. Wasting no time, he then changes the grip on the taiga to deliver a backhand aimed for Gerald’s side.

Alex

“Oh no, you don’t get to set the rules. If you can’t handle me, then… walk away. It’s as simple as that. But then you’d be a coward who doesn’t keep his word, and that’s not a very ‘honorable’ option. I wonder what Emilie would think of you then?”

He flashes Gerald a condescending smile.

“I know for a fact that she wouldn’t deserve you if that were the case.”

Alex switches hands to take a stab at Gerald’s head. Of course, he’s met with a block and just as Gerald tries to cut him, Alex delivers a well-placed high kick that knocks the taiga out of his hand. He grabs the arm that was blocking his and pulls on it to make Gerald fall on his back again.

“Kold, how do you expect to put up a good fight if you keep lying there like a starving sewer rat?”

Alex

“And I regret to inform you that you’re wrong.”

In one motion, Alex drops to one knee, grabs a handful of dirty snow, and throws it at Gerald’s face. He doesn’t wait for the man to recover as he gets up and kicks Gerald square in the chest. With his opponent on his back, Alex straddles his chest to hold him down and pin his arms in place with his legs. Alex’s blade is now cutting Gerald’s skin, tracing a thin, red line along his neck.

“If you move, the blade will cut deeper. Of course, I can just kill you right here but where’s the fun in that?”

Before Gerald can reply, Alex takes a full swing to throw one of the hardest punches he’s ever executed. He jumps up, grabs Gerald by his shirt to lift him up, then throws him against the generator. Alex looks down at Gerald before taking a swing, this time with the blade in hand.

Alex

He looks at Emilie for a second before looking back at Gerald. Alex had an idea to use Emilie against him, but he wasn’t sure he could bring himself to put her at risk. Besides, the girl had already been through a lot. But Gerald has also had his ups and downs as well, and he’s matured because of it. Even though he wants to get rid of “Kold Kincaid”, it’s quite possible that he may never be able to let him go, at least not this far into the game.

“Only one way to find out.”

Alex doesn’t waste anymore time engaging himself in battle. As soon as Emilie backs away, he lunges at Gerald. The blade comes down with strong force aimed for Gerald’s neck and shoulder. His free hand is used to block any incoming attack, and he remains mindful of a possible lower body strike.

Emilie

“No, Gerry, you don’t need to explain yourself to them.” I walk in front of my boyfriend and my uncle and face Kat and Sypher. “This is none of your business. We were fine before you two came along, and I seriously doubt we’ll miss you once you depart.”

I get closer to Sypher, being mindful of the gun pointed in my direction.

“I don’t care if you constantly stick your nose in other people’s business, but if you ever threaten one of us again, I swear on my father’s grave I will kill you with my own hands, and I’ll make sure it hurts. Now, you either kill me, or take your girlfriend over there and walk away this instant.”

Emilie

What I’d just heard wasn’t easy to agree with. Regardless of the final outcome, I’d be the one losing in the end. I stood there thinking of all the reasons why this was such a terrible idea, but I was also sure that Gerry knew what he was doing. If both Gerry and Alex needed this, then I couldn’t possibly stand in their way.

“Alright. I will go get him,” I finally say. I give Gerry a hug before going downstairs. I walk past the others without saying a word and go outside, looking around momentarily before I spot him. He will probably be thrilled to get the chance to fight Gerry, and not just for training purposes this time.

“Uncle Alex, Gerry sent me for you. He’s up on the roof of the building waiting for us both. He…wants to fight you. I don’t necessarily agree with it, but my opinion doesn’t matter in this case. This fight will finally put an end to what’s been bothering him for so long; and you, well…you get the chance to avenge your brother. I don’t know how else to put it, but…”

“Don’t worry Em, I understand. Listen, you don’t have to stay there to watch it all—”

“It’s fine, really. Let’s just get this done.”

He puts an arm on my shoulder before we both walk back to the building. Once inside, I grab a raincoat and put it on, then join him back in the hallway to make our way upstairs.


Alex

“Well, here we are.” He removes his coat once more and gives it to Emilie. Alex knew both him and Gerald had taken some hits from their fight earlier, therefore no one had the advantage over the other person. “Ready when you are.”

He places a hand on his weapon and approaches Gerald.

“I’m glad you’re being so understanding regarding this situation. You’re a very honest man, and I respect you for it. I also know that you always try to do the right thing, even if it doesn’t work out the way you wanted it to in the end. With that being said, I’m sure Alex will eventually come around. He’s a smart man, he’ll figure out that you’re more than worthy of being given a second chance, even if he doesn’t think so right away. Now, with that said, what’s been bothering you?”

“Yeah, of course.” I push myself off of the wall and walk towards Gerry. “Did you happen to hear Alex and I arguing? He stormed off after I told him what happened to my father. He had the same reaction I did.”

I stop for a moment as I remember how unbelievably mad I was with Gerry that night he confessed to me.

“Anyway, let’s go to the roof to have some privacy. It seems that’s the place to be for conversations.”

I grab Gerry’s hand and guide us upstairs.

[And why’s that, Sypher?]

Emilie

“Hey, wait, where are you going?”

Alex turns around, clearly agitated. “I’m going out to think about what you just said to me. It’s not everyday that you find out your niece’s boyfriend killed her father.”

Now I too was mad. He’s very stubborn, just like I remembered him.

“Look, I already told you it was an accident. Gerry wasn’t directly involved in his death so you need to drop it right now!”

Naturally, I had raised my voice to get the point across. Alex seems a bit surprised at my outburst and immediately goes into the defensive.

“I know you believe he’s innocent when it comes to the matter, but I’m just having a difficult time trusting the guy. I haven’t known him nearly as long as you have and therefore I can’t exactly welcome him into the family with open arms.”

“I hope you’re not asking me to choose between you two.”

“Come on Emilie, I am a grown man. Asking you to do such a thing is below me. Just give me some time to think, alright? That’s all I ask for.”

Great. Not a full day since we’ve reunited and we’ve already had our first fight.

“Alright, you can have your space.”

I watch him walk outside and I immediately start second-guessing myself.
