"Gatz?" I frown at the name, "You said his name was Gatz? As in, Marcus Gatz, unopposed mayor of Soltera, that batshit cult of a city?"

"That would be the one," I respond, my mouth feeling dry as I frown toward her. "I asked if there was any relation and he just chuckled at me and said something in some Northeastern language. The man was fucking brutal, Lju. He was supposed to be the hunter in the group, and the first meal he got for us was a fucking black bear. A baby black bear that he killed with his hands. I'm all for being a pragmatist, but holy hell. I don't think the thing was even weened from its mother yet."

"Yeah, the whole family has that reputation." I sigh, sitting back as I run a hand over the scars that span my face. 

"Soltera's like a month or more away from here. Half that if I can find someone with a running vehicle." I mumble to myself, shaking my head as I shove off of the bed and head past him back towards the kitchen to grab one of the bottles of wine I'd grabbed.

"Scott is supposed to be coming through this week," I offer as I sink further into my seat. "If we don't tell him where we'll going, he might let us borrow his truck. He owes me for helping him clear the road beyond the wall."

"There's no we, you're not coming." I say harshly, using a knife from the drawer as I fight the cork on the bottle.

"Don't be stupid," I scoff. "I'm not letting you face him by yourself."

"And I don't need anyone to let me, you're not coming. It's as simple as that." I frown, finally gouging the cork out.

"Lju, he killed a bear with his hands," I scowl. "And he had friends! Bigger, meaner, uglier friends! If you go after him by yourself, you'll be killed. Or worse."

"Then I better kill him before he gets his hands on me first, shouldn't I?" I sigh, tossing my knife and the cork onto the counter as I pull down a few glasses. 

"Gatz, fuck me." I scowl, sighing heavily as I pour two glasses and head back into the sitting area. "I don't care if he kills me, I really don't. Just as long as he goes with me."

"And then what would I do?" I demand, my heart skipping as I scowl angrily. "You're my best friend, Ljubie. Do you even know how devastated I would be if you did something like that?! Especially when I could have fucking helped you? The guilt would ruin me!

"I'm not saying don't do it," I frown. "I'm not even saying I have to be in the room with you. But I am not letting you go alone."

I hesitate just in front of him, handing him his wine as he takes it without a second thought. He's always been aware of his surroundings. Too aware

"Marn, this isn't your fight, though." I frown, sinking onto the ottoman in front of him. "We don't even know he'll be in Soltera."

"Him and his group got off at the crossroads and went east," I say as I take a sip of the wine before setting it aside and pulling a notebook from my bag to hand to her. "I took some notes about everything I'd heard them say and what the van they got into was like. Jason said it was rusty and blue with green doors. They said they had a few more stops before going home. Maybe we could catch them before they make it there."

I look at the notebook dubiously. The oddly formed letters and words would look foreign to anyone else, but Marnin's handwriting is familiar to me.

"And how long ago was this?"

"Day before yesterday," I respond, feeling a little hesitant as she takes the book from me. I've just given her all she needs to track them down without me. "I know people along the way... people who owe me favors. We could make good time if we go together."

65 Re: Finally... on Mon Dec 07, 2015 9:47 pm

"And these people who owe you favors," I ask, my one good eyebrow cocked oddly as I set the book in my lap to look at him, "They'd let you cash in those favors on The Gatz Family?"

"Who said anything about The Gatz Family," I respond with a crooked smirk as I raise an eyebrow in her direction. "Last I checked, we were out finding you a new couch and some drawers that I spotted on the other side of the wall."

"I've never been more than a few miles outside the wall," I say, "At least not further than the picking crews go... Not without transport caravans."

"It can't be much different," I shrug lightly. "I'm sure we'll be fine. We just keep our eyes open and our heads down and don't give anyone a reason to bug us."

"We've got one good eye between us, Marn, you wanna rethink that sentiment?"

"Don't be such a cynic," I retort past an amused smirk. "Less is more, so we're even better off than if we had four eyes."

"Right, I'm pretty sure one of the shop owners across from the Nail calls us Tweedle See and Tweedle Don't. I think the only advantage we have comes from the fact people think we're pathetic." I sigh, moving from the ottoman back towards my bed so I can sink against my pillows with my wine in hand, looking out the window. I can see the tones of the sunset glaring off of the windows across the alley.

"I don't think raiders are going to be taking pity on us."

"I don't think raiders will know what hit them when they don't," I respond simply. "There's an advantage in being seen as weak, 'Bee. When people think you're helpless, they tend to think you're stupid as well. And I don't know about you, but as much as I let people think what they like, I am none of those things. And I don't think you are, either.

"And if all else fails, between the two of us, we have to make up at least one decent survivalist."

"I do make a pretty good shot," I shrug lamely, finishing the bulk of my wine in one gulp before I sit up to head back to the kitchen. 

"If you want to come, I can't stop you." I concede, "But you don't go near him, understood?"

"I won't touch a hair on his smelly asscrack," I respond, holding my hands up innocently before I reach over for my wine. "One of his buddies, though... when I find him, he's mine."

"That's fine, I don't care about any one but him." I sigh, refilling my wine glass as I bring the bottle back into the main area.
