Day #2 - Better than dead

Day #1 Contd.

 The party decided to head straight to the bar&grill to check for supplies and try and make some molotov cocktails.They are going to need to be holstered up pretty tightly when it's night time...

Laura and the quiet man exchanged some glances over the situation with Tony, the quiet man gave an empty, but realized look, Laura felt her stomach sink, she knew what they had to do.
They approached the bar&grill, checking entrances, watching out for anything sharp protruding from the building like  broken glass or nails, the virus reacts so well with open wounds....

There are no runners inside, the bar appears empty, but non the less, the stench of death is nausiating. With the quiet to silence his actions, the quiet man turns to a shivering Tony. There is no doubt, Tony is showing signs of infection: sweating, quivering, rasping. Laura watches through eyes that have seen all too much, she absorbs each impact of the wrench into Tony's skull. Again and again the quiet man goes in with a heavy blow to the skull, emotionless. Decapitated, they drag the body and head outside, no need to risk themselves.

Laura and the quiet man border up the building; they will spend the night and next day getting ready.

Day #2

Supplies of interest:
Emergency lions bandages
Kitchen knives x 3
Molotov cocktail

They cautiously exit the bar, Tony's body is just a spattered mess of gibs and bone, the runners made quick work of him in the night.

Quiet man checks the entrance of the computer store, Laura taking in the rear. It seems quiet, clear, just the never ending drop on anxiety followed by the searing yelp of adrenaline.

Nothing, no information, Laura checks the terminals, no power. There is rustling outside, the party look at each other for an answer in the their expression, both are lost, anticipating the worst...A face of a young man appears at the shop window, starring at them both deeply and intently.

The party has been found by a runner, if there are more nearby it will alert them, they will not survive the confrontation. Quiet man saw an exit upstairs, it might lead to the roof, it might be a dead end. At the moment it is just them and just this one assailant, but it could mean the difference between life, death and undeath.

Choose their fate...

Day #1 - Not yet dead

Time: 11:59 AM

Supplies of interest:
Emergency Lions plasters

Tony, Laura and 'The quiet man' leave the wreckage of their car after it careened out of control whilst trying to escape the city. It was their only means of escape thus far, taking days to find a suitable ride to escape the concrete hell.

Tony is injured but Laura and The quiet man are fine, they display no physical damage, only shock from the crash. Tony's left arm is wounded, a large gash is rendered from the top of his deltoid, wrapping around to his tricep. His wounds must be seen to quickly otherwise within the next 40 hours he might become infected, lose too much blood or become unconscious. Currently the party does not have sufficient supplies to treat his wounds.

The car wreck has left the party at the begging of a bridge to an off-island, it is possible to reach by car, but the party does not have sufficient supplies to make the trip.

Walking back to a safe distance from the car there is a: sandwich shop, Bar&Grill, Computer store or road to the next street.

Choose their fate....
