Ollie didn't like being out in the open during the night; it wasn't safe, didn't have the sunlight to help her see. She could have been back at the hideout already, but a horde had surrounded the town, she was scouting a few miles behind her. It seemed there were too many hordes being formed as the days went on by, but what would the reason be if it was true? She shook her head. Being lost in her thoughts were never right for herself, she needed to make her mind clear, maybe get some rest.
She remembered seeing an old gas station a few days ago when she first started her Scout expedition. It seemed a lot of people used it as a shelter or even a landmark which meant that there wouldn't be anything worth to loot. It would keep her safe for the rest of the night, though. In the morning, she would head back out and continue on her own business.
It took her twenty minutes to get to the station but wasn't even there ten minutes when a horde attacked it. She cursed to herself; there was no luck for her tonight. The adrenaline pumped through her blood streams; she had fucked up. Ollie left her weapons behind at the town; it was an honest mistake on her fault. Everything became a blur, it happened so quickly, but somehow she managed to escape, but her clothes covered in blood. Infected or clean, she wasn't sure, but that didn't matter right now.
Ollie's eyes opened when she started to hear movement, for a split second she forgot where she was. Everything from the night before flashed back into her mind, as she sat up, and leaned against the wall. Some patches of her memory were still fuzzy, but she was safe at least at the moment. She rubbed her eyes with the back of her hand, her body slowly waking itself up from the short slumber.Bang! Bang!
Ollie flinched but calmed herself and realized that it was from someone banging on a door, not gunshots. Her eyes rolled when a man started to shout out orders and ideas. She stood up, dusted the hay off of her body, took a few steps closer to the man, and waved her hand in the air.
"Hi. Not trying to step on your toes right now but what exactly is your plan? Continue to run out the horde, hoping that another one doesn't pop out from somewhere else?
" Ollie asked. "Plus, why West? Unless I accidently invited myself in a friendship community that was formed by all of you. How do you know that's where the majority of people want to go?
Her freckled face didn't show any hints on how she felt about everything, though the seriousness (with a hint of sarcasm) in her voice could tell anyone that she meant business.
