In the aftermath of the Massacre at the Target, the group returns to Apex with a prisoner in tow. Meanwhile, a method of Judge, Jury and Executioner is shown at the Yard and Niklas writes a list
Leo and Taylor walk together outside the Target. Behind them is Niklas, with knife in hand, and Aaron, who holds his gun tilted downward, but ready. The four walk corpses and see one being gnawed on by a walker. Aaron gets his gun aimed at its head, but Leo motions for him to put it down
Leo: Too loud
Leo takes out his knife and throws it into the walker’s head
Taylor: Where did you learn to do that?
Leo: Years in the circus
Niklas runs up to the corpse
Niklas: This one is Kenzie. Looks like she took one to the head
Leo: >points towards the right< What about that one near her?
Niklas: >looks at corpse< Maria. She made the coffee
Niklas drops to one knee and stabs the corpse in the head
Niklas: Saw no bullet in the head
He picks up a pistol with three letters engraved in it
Leo: Okay. Taylor, Aaron, help me check others.
Aaron runs up to the corpse of Eric, who is already dead. Niklas runs up to the corpse of Bill and places a knife in his skull while Taylor runs up to the corpse of Tim
Taylor: Um… you guys?
The three men run up to her
Taylor: Only one wound. It’s in his chest
Leo: You know what to do, right?
Taylor: I…. I don’t … wanna
Leo: You need to do this. You need to understand what goes on out here. You brought the knife out for a reason
Taylor takes a deep breath, drops to one knee and inserts her knife into Tim’s skull. She pulls it out slowly and wipes it off on her jeans
Todd sits leaned back on Annie’s couch sipping soda out of a can. Annie sits next to him with one leg in the seat. She reads from a magazine from three years before the outbreak. Todd takes a deep breath in and sits forward
Todd: Okay, I have to address this question because it is eating at me. How old are you exactly? Because what we just did feels awkward if you’re half my age
Annie puts her magazine down and sighs
Annie: I’m 35. The reason I look as young as I do is that I got plastic surgery when I was younger. My ex-husband was verbally abusive and manipulative. He was 5 years older than me and we met when I was fresh out of high school. He would say if I ever lost my looks, he would leave me. So I got plastic surgery to make sure I wouldn’t lose him. It wasn’t until after friends told me to do something about him that I realized I wasted so much money for nothing. Thankfully in this world, money doesn’t matter. Nothing really matters. That’s why my ex-husband is dead
Todd: Dead? Before or after this all went down
Annie takes a deep breath
Annie: Only a few people, Jenny included, know this information. After the world went to shit, and people turned and ate each other, I drove down to my ex-husband’s house. He was there, alone, and thought I was crawling back to him. So I took out my gun and I shot him three times until he dropped. Then twice more for good measure. I’m glad he’s dead. I talked with his dead body for over an hour afterwards. It gave me so much closure letting it all out. I’m glad he is dead, because he can’t hurt me or anyone else anymore
Todd: I’m sorry that happened to you
Annie: I’m not. It shaped me into the woman I am today. I’m not afraid to kill. In this world, post-apocalypse, I’ve already killed three other people. Two men and a woman. Not all at the same time, but all because they were trying to take from me. I needed to protect myself. Are you okay?
Todd: >slightly shaken< Well I now respect you more and fear you more than I did five minutes ago
Annie: >smacks lips< We can take this into another room and you’ll learn to fear and respect me even more than now
Gregory returns from his attack with Rick, Lewis, Lottie and Brooks. He is tired and bloody. He is met with several eyes pointed his way
Liam: Gregory! Thank God you’re back.
Gregory keeps walking and Liam keeps pace on his left with Alex on Gregory’s right
Liam: We were attacked while you were gone. We killed one but…. Stefan’s dead
Alex: And the kid’s gone
Gregory stops walking
Alex: Niklas is gone. They took him
Gregory: Who was supposed to be watching him? How did you all let him escape?
Alex: They set off a bomb. C4. Killed one of our guards in the explosion
Gregory turns back to the other four
Gregory: Lewis! Get me some fucking whiskey
Lewis: Yes sir! Would you like a glass?
Gregory: Fuck a glass. The whole bottle
Lewis runs off
Rick: Gregory…. Cosmo was on guard duty when we left. Can I go find him
Gregory: Yes… yes go
Rick runs off
Gregory: Who the fuck was supposed to watch the prisoner tent?
Alex: Umm… Cosmo was on watch until 2pm, about half an hour before you left. He was replaced by …. Sean. Sean uh… >snaps his finger three times< Moreland. Yes. Sean Moreland
Gregory: Liam, go find Sean and bring him to me. Alex, you gather everyone up and tell them to get back here in five minutes. Lottie… go clean your gun
All: Yes sir
The three leave Gregory alone. He walks over to his trailer and plops himself onto his bed. He looks to his left, to a pad of paper that says “DEATHS” on it. He takes the cap off a pen and marks down seven names: Stefan, Maria, Kenzie, Georgia, Bill, Colin, Gavin. He caps the pen and puts the pad back. He looks to his ceiling at a poster. The poster is signed by the members of the Motorhead, depicting them with their instruments. He stands up and walks to where his clothes are. He unbuttons his dress shirt and puts on a new, cleaner one. Then he does the same with his jeans. A knock comes on his door
Gregory: Ah Anthony, what can I do for you?
Anthony: Everyone’s ready sir
Gregory: Good. Let’s get this fucking show on the road
Gregory walks up to a loud crowd of people gathered in a circle. In the middle are Liam and Spencer, holding Sean’s arms behind his back. Gregory pushes his way to the center
Gregory: Okay everyone. Settle down, settle down. I have gathered you all to deliver sad news. While you were all here, myself and several attacked those fucks down at the Target who killed a few of our own the other day. We lost six good soldiers today, and one more back here, as I’m sure you’re all aware. But, I have called you all here because we lost our leg up. For the past few days, we have had a prisoner in a tent known as Niklas. He is guarded 24/7, except during the bombing here, earlier today. The man who was supposed to be on duty failed to stay at his post for the entirety of his shift. Isn’t that right, Sean?
Sean: It’s not my fault. I was tricked into leaving during the bombing
Gregory: Tricked? By whom?
Sean: I don’t know he… he had black hair, a big nose, black jeans, a baseball cap
Spencer: Baseball cap? Was it an Orioles one?
Gregory looks to Spencer, who looks back
Spencer: That was the hat we found on the dead attacker. ID said his name was Gary Allen Taylor. 33 years of age
Gregory looks at Sean with his mouth partially open. Sean looks back, terrified
Sean: I… I didn’t know I swear. He said to check out the explosion. I said I had to watch the prisoner but he said what’s the worst that would happen. I swear
Gregory: For now, Sean, I believe you. Let him go
Liam and Spencer lose their grip on Sean
Gregory: You know our rules. Since none of us here were lawyers or judges, we do not have the right to make calls like this. So we let fate, or rather, our willingness to survive be our judge, our jury and our executioner. Everyone take five big steps back, enough so that everyone is in line and can see. There should be no second row
The circle becomes larger
Gregory: Who is brave enough to fight Sean?
A sea of hands shoot up into the air. One of them stands out to Gregory over the others.
Gregory: Avi! Thank you for volunteering. Get in the ring. Nils! Get me two weapons. No bullets
Nils runs and grabs two weapons before returning to the ring
Nils: I grabbed a bat and a knife, sir
Gregory: Don’t come to me, put them in the fucking pit, you idiot
Nils stands with his mouth slightly open for a second before running into the ring and giving Avi the bat and Sean the knife, before running out again to view the carnage
Gregory: On my command. Ready. Set. Fight for your life!
The crowd begins to cheer as the fighters move closer. Sean hops around, stepping forward and back, dancing around Avi
Avi: For christ’s sake, you little fuck. Stop dancing and fight
Avi brings the bat close to him and lunges at Sean, who backs of and throws a punch. Avi runs up to Sean and lifts his left leg to kick but instead kicks Sean in the chest with his right. Sean goes down on his chest as Avi runs up and raises his arm to swing down on him. Sean rolls out of the way and gets back up, before losing his balance and falling back on his ass. His head hits the leg of Brooks, who kicks him back into the ring
Brooks: Get back in there, pussy
Sean rolls in the dirt until he is able to get back up. Avi runs at him and swings at his head. It is a direct hit. Sean goes down to the ground, but still has hold of his knife. As Avi moves closer to swing again, Sean swings his knife at Avi’s ankles, cutting slightly into them, and gets back up. Avi stumbles a bit but goes in for another swing. As he does, Sean ducks and jabs his knife into his stomach. Avi yells in pain and starts to spit blood from his mouth as Sean pulls the knife out and stabs again. He sweeps Avi to the floor and sits on top of him. Sean pulls the knife out and stabs Avi again and again. The cheers from the crowd soon die off as Sean emerges victorious. He adds the final blow to Avi’s head before standing with his arms in the air. He looks upon the crowd as he is spun around and his collar is grabbed by Gregory
Gregory: >close to Sean< You lived! You shouldn’t have. I want you to leave immediately and never return. You may keep the knife. Go
He shoves Sean out of the circle. Sean starts to run away
Spencer: Should we chase?
Gregory: No. He won. Fate decided it. But I decided he should leave. Folks. You can return to you stations now. Except for Alex, Liam and… Callum
Everyone disperses except for Alex, Liam and Callum
Gregory: I’m not done at that Target. I think they’re going to be leaving today. They got what they were after. I want you three to go there and make sure you follow them on their way home. I want blood. Worthy blood. Avi didn’t deserve this. Callum, are you up to this?
Callum: Yes sir Gregory. I’m honored I’m one of the three you chose
Gregory: Save it for when you return. You have ten minutes to pack. Go
Alex: Where will you be?
Gregory: I’m staying here. A bottle of whiskey is calling my name
Gregory heads back to his trailer while the other three men disperse. Callum goes up to his living arrangement to get his guns and some snacks. His best friend, Maine, is sitting drinking some water
Maine: Going on a run?
Callum: Something like that. I’m going with Alex and Liam to the Target to follow those fuckers home
Maine: We'll be safe. You’re my best friend, I fear for you
Callum sits down and puts his arm around Maine’s shoulder
Callum: Is that all I am? I thought I was more
Maine: >sighs< … I don’t know who might be listening. I’m afraid to say anything else because I am afraid of what they’ll do to you. Do to us
Callum: They won’t hurt you too bad. You said so yourself you’d fuck Izabel… or Virginia. You’re bi. I’m gay. They’ll treat me worse
Maine: I don’t want it to come to that.
Maine leans in close to Callum
Maine: >whispering< You’re not just my best friend. I just don’t know what to call you. I love you. Now go. I’ll see you when you return
Inside Izabel’s trailer, she is changing her shirt. Her white one she was wearing got Avi’s blood on it and she needed a change. Suddenly, Liam walks right into her trailer
Izabel: Liam! What are you doing here?
Liam: Well, I’m about to go with Alex and Callum to find that community where Niklas is from. I just wanted to see if I could get my goodbye kiss
Izabel: Why would I do that?
Liam: Well… doesn’t the hero always get a goodbye kiss?
Izabel: Tell you what. You return a hero, I’ll give you more than a kiss
She walks up and hugs Liam
Izabel: Did you… did you just unhook my bra?
Niklas is standing near a checkout counter with a piece of paper and a pen. He has a list of names: Brooks, Alex, Nils, Izabel, Anthony, Gregory. At the top is the word “HIT”. Tess walks up to him and begins to rub his back
Tess: What are you writing?
Niklas: Nothing, Tess. It’s not important
Tess: It obviously is. You’ve grabbed a pen. That means you want it to be permanent. Let me see it
Niklas hands her the paper
Tess: “HIT. Brooks… Alex… Nils… Izabel… Anthony… Gregory”. Why?
Niklas: You don’t know what kind of torture I was subjected to. The amount of pain, physical and mental, over the course of just days. It was hell
Tess: Aren’t you glad you’re back though?
Niklas: Not yet. I’m not back yet. I need to see Ruben, he’ll understand
Niklas walks away from Tess and up to Ruben, who is gathered with Leo, Taylor and Sylvester. Dex and Doug sit on opposite ends of the counter. In the middle lies Gavin Foxx, who has just woken up
Leo: Good morning sleepy head. Welcome to Target
Gavin begins to struggle, but Ruben and Sylvester hold him down
Sylvester: Don’t struggle. It’ll only get worse
Gavin: What do you want?
Leo: To be honest, I’m not sure. We know where you live. Where your crops are, about how many people live with you. We really don’t need information out of you. Instead, I have figured out something better. We don’t to kill you, it’s not right. But we won’t send you back, not yet at least. It’ll add another man to Gregory’s army. We don’t want that. Instead, you’re coming back with us. Taylor removed the bullet, and we’re leaving shortly. Dex… the sack?
Dex: Hold still, Gavin
Dex takes a dark sack and places it over Gavin’s head
Leo: We don’t want you to see
Leo leads him away from everyone else
Niklas: Ruben, can I get a word? Alone?
Ruben: What’s up?
Niklas takes out his list and shows it to him
Niklas: I don’t think they’re done. I want to stay the night and see if they try to attack again. After then, we can leave
Ruben: Why did you ask me?
Niklas: I figured you might say yes
Ruben: Okay. I’ll tell Leo
Niklas: I already told him. He said if I found someone who would help, I could stay
The two walk outside of the Target. Everyone has packed up and is having important conversations before leaving
Warren: Scotty I’m warning you, Ray is pissed
Paul: He’ll be more mad when he finds other left
Scott: He’ll be more pissed when he finds out Tim died. Maybe not. Maybe he’ll be sad
Doug: He'll be pissed to find I need days off my feet
Otis: I still don’t see why we leave my car here
Meredith: It’s a distraction. In case they come back
Otis: Fine. But I’m getting the CDs from my car
Nathan: Do you miss Matt?
Lindsay: I couldn’t sleep last night
Phillip: So we take our group out to where Fish’s box truck was?
Aaron: That’s right. We take three or four cars, plus Fish’s truck
Phillip: Jenny told me she’s had a lot of requests from people to join
Aaron: Do you know whom? Anyone in particular you want?
Phillip: She said Garrett asked. I’d like him to come. Bentley asked to pull his weight around so he’s probably joining. And I’ve got Nathan and Dimitri already. So that’s us two, Todd, Fish, and those four. I figure we might pick up three more? That work?
Aaron: I think that’ll suffice. We’re down to about 60 even now with Eric, Jason, Norman, Tim and Gary all passing. We need to be careful
Niklas: I’m staying with Ruben
Leo: I figured you would
Tess: What? But you just got back
Niklas: I need to stay at least the night. Once midnight hits, we’ll leave
Tess runs up to hug Niklas and gives him a quick kiss on the lips
Tess: Be safe. Don’t bore him with nerdy stuff
Niklas: I probably will. For both of those
Leo: Okay everyone. Let’s pack up and go!
Otis and Meredith drive off with Tess. Warren drives with Paul, Scott, Sylvester and Doug. Dex rides with Phillip and Aaron while Gavin is tied up in the back. Leo begins to get in Dimitri’s car
Leo: Good luck
Dimitri: Stay safe, guys
Ruben:: You too
Dimitri and Leo drive off
Jenny: So I heard more from Phillip. He said he and Aaron recruited Nathan and Dimitri to join them on the mall run
Elizabeth: So who does that give us so far on the run
Garrett: Am I in?
Matt: Me too?
Jenny: Yes, yes don’t worry. He just called me up and said he, Aaron, Nathan and Dimitri were a go. He was fine with Garrett and Bentley joining. He asked for three more, not including Todd. Matt, you’re in, and Tracy asked to join as well. I’m thinking of sending Eli as the last man on the mission. He hasn’t shown up yet, but he should be ready
Tracy: I’m all ready too, Jenny. I want you to know that
Jenny: This is your first run. I want you to be safe
Elizabeth: And you too, Mr. Graham. Do not lose another limb
Jenny: Are you sure you’re alright Matt?
Matt: Lindsay was out at the Target yesterday. I found it hard to sleep last night without her
Alex: You look tense, Callum. Don’t be nervous. We’ll be fine
Callum: This was the spot of death not even 24 hours ago. Not 48 hours ago, even more death in these woods. Hell, Spencer had to put down two of our own
Liam: He made the right call
Callum: Spencer did?
Liam: No. Gregory did. Sending you with us. You’re nervous. That’s reassuring. If you weren’t, I’d think you were sociopathic or a psycho. I wouldn’t be in the same woods as you
Callum: You don’t know what I’m nervous about
Liam: I don’t need to know why. I just need to know. I’m thankful you are
The three walk in awkward silence
Callum: I’m nervous…. Because I’m gay.
Alex and Liam stop
Callum: I’m gay. And I’m afraid of what might happen if people found out
Liam: So why did you tell us?
Callum: Because you just made me feel comfortable enough to trust you. I know you won’t tell. I am afraid of people like Reid and Maxwell. What they might do
Alex: You’re afraid of dead people?
Callum: Well no. I mean they were assholes
Alex: Were you afraid of physical violence against you and your lover? Don’t be. If it ever happened because of that, Liam and I would have your back. Not just us. Brooks, and Spencer, and Nils, the Murphys. Lottie, Margot, Miles, Kenneth, Stephanie. Gregory himself. He would put them in the ring, against each other, til they both died. He tolerates most things, like rape and murder, but hate crimes or vulgar, discriminatory language, he cannot stand.
Liam: You don’t have to feel like an outcast. In the Yard, we’re all a family. We have our issues, but we solve it. Sure, sometimes with physical violence to the death. But it is solved. You’re one of us, til you die
Knock knock knock
Gregory: Come on in
Gregory lies in his bed. The door opens and an older, busty woman in a white dress walks in
Gregory: Howdy Virginia. Nice to see you today. Anything I can help you with?
Virginia sits on his bed and runs her arm down his leg, which is covered by the sheets
Virginia: I think you know
She slowly runs her hand up closer to his thigh
She suddenly stops
Gregory: I thought I could do this, but I can’t. I just. Not after today. It’s been rough. Maybe some other time, if you’re up for it
Virginia: I’ll be here for you Gregory
She walks out the door. Gregory grabs his bottle of whiskey and drinks more. Outside of his trailer, Izabel sits down with Brooks, Cosmo, Spencer and Nils inside of Spencer’s trailer.
Nils: Do you think it’s over? Do you think Gregory is done with them?
Spencer: I think for a while, we will be done. Maybe we need to get better at shooting or change our plans of attack
Brooks: Bullshit he’ll send us in as soon as possible. He’s getting drunk tonight but he’s gonna come back stronger by tomorrow. Alex, Liam and Callum will be back and let us know where they live. The real question is, should we let him send us out?
Cosmo: What do you mean?
Brooks: What does it sound like? Should we let Gregory send us out again to die?
The three look at him strangely
Brooks: Should he be in command anymore? I want to survive this with my life. I want to be able to die of my accord. Not sent out to God-knows-where to fucking die. I saw we kill him. Kill him while he sleeps
Spencer: You can’t be fucking serious
Brooks: I am. I fear for my life. I’ve killed for him before, I’ll do it again. But I’ll have to put him down if I need to. Are you with me?
The group stares blankly at him. Brooks stands up and head for the door
He opens the door
Brooks: But don’t think I’m not afraid to take him down. When the time is right, I’ll do it. And I’ll wait for your response
Bentley: So I’m going on the mission?
Bentley sits in the den of Jenny’s house across from her. Kendall sits by his side
Jenny: Of you really want to go, Phillip is alright with sending you
Kendall: Are you sure you want to go?
Bentley: Yes, dear I am
Jenny: By the way, did you ask Elizabeth about morning after pills?
Bentley: We decided that we want to have this conversation when I return. We’re thinking of pros and cons for children now
Jenny: Well let me kno---
Suddenly her a knock comes on her door. Jenny opens it to see a man no more than 4 feet tall at her door
Jenny: Hello Oliver. What can I do for you?
Oliver: Leo’s returned. I saw him with my binoculars like you asked. Just wanted to let you know
Jenny turns to her guests
Jenny: Sorry to cut this short but Leo has returned
Jenny walks up to the gates where Leo and his group are standing with a few others crowded around him. Ray runs up to Warren
Ray: Are you all good? Ready to return to the crew?
Warren: Ray… I have to tell you something
Ray: If it’s that you’re sorry, I accept your apology
Warren: No… I don’t know how to say this. We were attacked yesterday. Lost a few people and uh… Tim is dead. He’s in the back of the truck. He took a shot to the chest. I saw him go down. He was with me and Scotty
Ray looks down to the ground, then back to Warren
Ray: I… I’m sorry. I’m sorry you had to see him go. We’ll take the tomorrow and the next day off to mourn him. Burial and service and all
Ray suddenly gives Warren a big hug. Meanwhile, Dex takes a masked Gavin out of the back seat in view of everyone
Dex: Well, Gavin. Welcome to our home
Jenny: Dex? Who is this?
Dex: This is Gavin Foxx. He’s one of Gregory’s soldiers that attacked us yesterday. He took a bullet in the leg so we fixed him up and brought him back here
Jenny: Who said to do that?
Warren: I did, actually. Figured he could be useful. One less man in Gregory’s army
Jenny: So you brought him home
Warren: He won’t get a weapon or anything. He needs to earn trust first. Trust me, this’ll work.
Jenny: It better
She walks up to Gavin
Jenny: Welcome to A...our home.
Gavin: You’re less hostile than Gregory. What do you want me to do here? Clean, cook, build?
Jenny: Can you cook?
Gavin: I dabble a bit
Jenny: Well, our kitchen is over that way where Olivia works. I’ll walk you there
The two walk off
Otis: You think this is a good idea?
Leo: We’ll see, Otis. We’ll see
Todd: We leaving tomorrow?
Phillip: Yes. Do you have our crew?
Todd: You, me, Aaron, Garrett, Matt, Nathan, Dimitri, Bentley, Fish, Tracy and Eli. Haven’t met Eli yet, but seems like a good group nonetheless
Suddenly Timothy west walks up with his brother
Timothy: Are you guys leaving tomorrow? Do you want another hand?
Fish: He's more helpful than you think
Todd: I don't see why not. Welcome aboard, Timothy
Timothy: Please, call me Tim. Or West. Fish has his nickname, Jack is short for John, and I'd prefer to take the family name sometimes
Todd: West it is then
Liam: And that… is how I found out I had an eating disorder
Alex: Holy shit Liam. I’m so sorry. I didn’t know
Liam: It’s fine. It feels good to get off my chest. Went to therapy for years and just telling you two now made me feel so much better
Callum: We’re always here for you. In case. You know
Liam: Thank you. Both of you
Alex: Hey guys. Let’s keep our voices down now. We’re here
The three drop down to lower themselves and keep quiet. When they get to the lot of the Target at the end of the woods, they are met with only cars. It is the dark of the night, and none of them can really see very well
Alex: Do you think they left?
Callum: There’s cars still here, but they look abandoned. Probably left today
Liam: Dammit. Gregory’s gonna be pissed
Alex: We haven’t searched inside yet. We can see if---
As Alex is finishing his sentence, Liam drops straight to the ground with a bullet in his head
Callum: What the fu---
Callum drops as well, with a bullet in his head
“Toss your guns and get on the ground. NOW”
Alex complies. Two figures walk out of the darkness. One taller than the other
Niklas: Good shots, Ruben. I got it from here.
Ruben: I’ll watch for more
Niklas walks up to Alex
Niklas: Shut up
Niklas slaps Alex in the face twice. He then pulls out a piece of paper and a pen and turns on the flashlight in his hands. He uncaps the pen and marks a line through
Niklas: See this paper? I want you to read it aloud. From top to bottom
Alex: “HIT. Brooks… Alex… Nils… Izabel… Anthony… Gregory”. My… my name’s crossed out
Niklas: Good observation
Alex: You won’t get them all, you realize that
Niklas: I might. But then again, I might not. It’ll give me motivation. I won’t give up, I won’t die… until all these names are crossed off my list
Alex: So you’re gonna kill me?
Niklas: Kill you? It says hit. I clearly just hit you
Alex: So I’m good to go?
Niklas: No I’m gonna kill you. I was just messing with you
Niklas takes out a Heckler and Koch MK23 with the letters KJE etched in it
Niklas: Picked it up off Kenzie’s corpse. What’s J and E stand for?
Alex: Her initials are KJE. Kenzie Johanna Edwards
He takes the safety off the gun and points it at Alex
Niklas: Ruben can you warm up the car? After I shoot this, we can leave
Ruben runs to his car and starts it up
Alex: That’s a loud gun. I know she had a silencer
Niklas: I don’t want the silencer. It’ll be more satisfying if I hear it. Last words or no?
Alex: >breathes in< Go ahead. Make sure you didn’t prematurely cross my name off. I’m tired anyway
Niklas gives a slight smile breathing in and out a few times
Alex’s body flops to the ground. Niklas turns around and gets in the passenger seat of Ruben’s car before they drive off
Later that night, outside of the Apex gates, a figure walks through the clearing. Eddie, on guard, watches the figure walk up to the gate. The figure knocks
Eddie: They won’t answer you. You’ll have to answer me. Please put all weapons you have onto the ground
The figure complies, putting down a knife with dried blood on it. Eddie climbs down from the guard position and stands on the other side of the gate
Eddie: Is that all?
Eddie: How? Turn around
The figure complies. He has no bag. He has only the clothes on his back. His shirt is dried from sweat
Eddie: How is it you only carry a knife?
“Up until today, I was living in a community. I had guns, ammo, food, water. Everything. Then today I was evicted after proving I was worthy enough to stay. The leader, he let me keep the knife
Eddie opens the gates and the figure walks in
Eddie: You can stay here with me until the next guard shift. That’s in four hours, at about 7am. At that point, I’ll take you to our leader. You can sleep here, but I need to hold onto your knife
The figure gives him his knife
Eddie: By the way. I’m Eddie. Eddie Hedd. I didn’t get your name
Eddie: Welcome Sean Moreland. Welcome to the community of Apex North Carolina
