Ana gave a small nod, prepared to leave with him when he turned around and gave her his pistol, instructing her to go ahead and head out on her own, that he’d catch up with her. A small flutter of panic began to blossom in her stomach, she wanted desperately to tell him no, that she wanted to stay by his side but instead she gave a small nod, grabbing the pistol and turned away, making her way to the motel. Ana grimaced most of the time due to her ankle throbbing in protest to every step she took but she couldn’t risk stopping and tending to it, she could do that once they were both
safe in one of the hotel rooms.
As she rushed into the main office, she walked inside to see that the place was practically abandoned. Quickly, the female went behind the counter, looking around for a few moments before she grabbed hold of a room key, taking the rest of the same room key to ensure no one would be able to just grab another one and enter the room they were going to hunker down in. She then glanced over to the vending machine that had been smashed in. With pursed lips, she quickly shuffled over taking whatever snacks and drinks remained and put them in the duffle bags, something she figured they would need.
Finally Anastasia made it to the room in question, right in the front and one of the first ones. She used the keys and opened it up, placing the things inside as she set everything down on the ground. Once she had everything put down and gun gripped firmly in her hand, she went back to the door and opened it to stand there and look for Connor. With a nervous frown, Ana looked around the area, grateful she didn’t really see anyone dead or alive, figuring this particular area must have already been abandoned with hopes to evacuate.
As soon as she caught sight of the male, she lifted her arms waving him over to come to where she was. With sharp eyes, the female continued to look around to make sure there was no one else coming that could potentially harm him or her. As soon as he got into the room she closed the door quickly, locking the doors. Her breath was coming out raggedly as she slid down to her butt against the door, tears threatening to blur her vision. “New rule, we don’t leave each others side, ever.”
She whimpered out sternly though her eyes were filled with relief, clearly happy he was unharmed.
