*If you need a roll before you post - trying to jump something, climbing over broken shit, etc. just drop me a pm here or tag on Discord. As of right now, there are no Walkers posing any danger to you yet in Newnan.
Newnan was burning, there was nothing that could stop that. The distillery had gone up, and that fire was spreading quickly. No one could see it yet but the house that Jack and Tatiana had shared was now gone, in a whole and shattered beyond recognition. There was no word back from static from any of the radios. Channels were not working. Whether that was because no one would answer or just because they had been so damaged from everything collapsing and exploding was anyone's guess.
The Mess Hall collapsed suddenly form the structural damage. It fell this way and that, blocking the path back to that side of Newnan. If Tiffany didn't jump, chances were she would end up being burned to death quickly. Gas lines were still leaking, it was catching more and more fires. What had been Newnan was now the remains of a war zone. They had to get out. Jack and Tiffanys best option? Get Tiffany to Jack, grab bug out bags from the mechanic shop and head north west. Try to get up and around the city. It really was the only option at this point.
The funeral home was holding for now but they needed to get out. Sure the house that was funeral home had stood for more than a hundred years but that was because it was built to withstand tornadoes. Not earthquake like disasters. One could hear the wood creaking from above and all around. That house wasn't going to hold much longer before it came crashing down on itself and taking anyone out inside it when it did.
Amelia and the rest with her could get out over the debris. It would be a pain but they could manage and they still had a chance to grab a few bug out bags before they made a break for it. Meg was one of the oldest members of Newnan, not in age but in the time she had spent there. She knew the bug out plan, she was there when it was set up. She was head of domestic, she was in charge of where every bag was placed.
"Get the bags, get your people out. Now girl," Leanns voice echoed in Megs head. Most of the hallucinations were clearing out but that was only because the smoke was taking over the fumes from the pipe leaks. It wouldn't last forever and there was still a little here and there fueling it. Or maybe it was just Megs inner voice taking the form of Leann in her mind to tell her what to do and how to do it. Either way, it was probably the first good voice in someone's head any of them would have had.
Elsewhere Nathan looked over towards Alena and nodded. "That sounds like a capital idea little one. Now, first rule in this game is that we get as close as we can without being noticed. Sure we could make the shot from here but what fun is that? Other than watching her writhe in pain. Them dead could get to her before we did. We could miss and give away our position. So for now, we make our way as close to her as we can get before we strike. Then, you can have your fun," he said as he started walking. Working his way into the tree line and staying ducked down as much as his large frame could do.
Gavin, Thana, & Lola
Location: The Meeting
Thana could feel her knees start to buckle when she didn't hear a response at first. They gave away slightly as she finally saw Ash come out of the fog of dust that had been kicked up from the road caving in. Gavin grabbing her by the elbow and keeping her standing. Ash was alive, that was what mattered but he was on the other side of the ravine that had been formed. That wasn't good. When people got separated chances of finding them again was more than slim, it was basically non-extant. All she could manage to do was nod right then, if she spoke she knew her voice would crack. Her throat hurt but it wasn't from the dust it was from desperation.
Lola coughed and held up a hand, giving a thumbs up. "We're good," she coughed before sitting up slowly and taking a look around. "Fuck me...." she muttered as she stood up and started dusting herself off. Brushing a trickle of blood from her forehead she looked around. Her tank was fine, Thalia was alive, even Gramps was still kicking. So they were about as good as they could hope for right then. "Someone want to tell me what the hell is going on?"
"Glads to hear it Bea," Gavin said as he held onto Thana. From the looks of it she would fall straight into that gap if he let her go right then. Taking a breath he nodded towards Ash. "Shit man, don't ya be worrin' none. James and I were headed that way. Edens on our list of shit to do today. I gots that shit, yous take care of yer people," he called out to Ash.
Thana glanced over towards Gavin and her lips parted slightly. "Eden? You mean those asshats I heard about that took out my sister?" she said, a slight grumbling coming up in her throat. Gavin could only nod to her. Thana didn't like her sister, in fact in a lot of ways she hated the woman. It really hadn't even bothered her to hear her sister was dead. Yet, the southern girl was bubbling up in her. Family before all. Didn't matter her sister had made her life hell, if anyone was going to fuck with her sister, it was her.
"I'm coming with you," she growled under her breath. It wasn't a side that came out of Thana often. She wasn't one for revenge, she wasn't one to get upset, or let her emotions control her but this was different. She had found a place, she had found someone she clicked with, the world decided to give everyone a major fuck off and Thana was snapping. Reaching up she grasped her dog tags and yanked. The chain snapping at the back of her neck as she did. Balling it up in her hand the woman gave a fast pitch Coach Hicks would have been proud of as she sent the damn things streaming across the ravine and hitting Ash right in the gut.
"Captain, you are to return those to me. That is a god damn order," she said in a tone that made Gavin raise a brow.
"Damn girl, channeling your inner Macsen?" he asked but she didn't respond. Turning on her heels she stepped over towards the truck.
"Anyone that wants safety, I suggest you get your wits about you and start moving. Those that want to kill something, we have work to do," she said as she took her pack off her shoulder and tossed it into the back of James truck. "Comfort, you're driving."
Lola started to grin form ear to ear. It wasn't that she liked killing people but shit, if they were going to start tearing shit up, she was all for it. It had been a while since she got to play with her tank. Clapping her hands together she rubbed them quickly and glanced over towards Thalia. "Jet, you know I can't pass on this shit. Can we please go play boom boom?!?!" she asked like a kid on Christmas morning wanting to open presents before everyone was out of bed.
Gavins jaw dropped slightly as he looked back over Thana as she climbed into the truck and then over towards Ash. "Fucking christ... I supposed to bes the unstable one, not her ass..." he said towards Ash before turning and jogging over to the truck. Glancing over towards Bea he shrugged a bit. "Ya coming ors wants me to drops ya offs somewhere first?" he asked Bea as he swung open the driver door.
