“There’s the access road,” Sam said. Sid nodded and turned the Jeep onto it, driving past the broken gate in the darkness.

“I’ll stop before the last bend,” Sid said. “You okay, honey?”

Yvonne looked at him. “I’m scared to death. Guess it shows.”

“Check your rifle,” Sam said. “That always helps me.”

“I’m not afraid of finding the enemy here,” Yvonne said. “There’s no reason for them to be here. I’m afraid of seeing my friend’s heads on sticks.”

“Maybe that’s been cleaned up by now,” Sid said.

“That’s the least of our worries,” Sam said as he checked his M60.

“Where’s the ammo?” Sid asked. “Hidden in your office?”

“Nope,” Sam said. “It’s easier to show you than to tell you.”

“Look, see the vehicle?” Yvonne asked.

“Shit, that’s a Gaz Tigr,” Sid said. “It’s blown up.”

“There was a battle,” Sam said. “Good. I hope our people…

Gil parked the blue coach in the cow pasture, between the red coach and the gray coach.

“Why here?” Tisha asked. “There’s more room over there.”

“My friends are in the coaches on either side,” Gil said. “C’mon.”

They went out the door, into the cool darkness. Robbie and Morgan were there to greet them, Justin and Katie following a moment later.

“You made it!” Robbie said. “Any problems on the road?”

“Not a one,” Gil said. “You remember Tisha, right?”

“Of course,” Robbie said. Morgan smiled at her.

“Hey, brother,” Justin said.

‘Hi, Gil,” Katie said. “Hi, Tisha.”

“Hi yourself,” Tisha said, smiling, getting closer to Gil.

“Who’s still out there?” Gil asked.

“Only Tex’s coach and Ted’s coach,” Robbie said.

“Should we be worried?” Tisha asked.

“Tex’s coach was last to leave,” Justin said. “Ted should’ve been here by now, though. Something might have happened. I saw Jules…

The tires of the Jeep crunched down the loose dirt of the road, headlights piercing the darkness.

“I’m cold,” Kaitlyn said, folding her arms against herself.

Seth reached forward and turned on the heat. “There, it’ll get better in a few minutes.”

“How far back are we going?”

“A little further yet,” Seth said. “You okay? You haven’t said much for a while.”

“I was thinking about what you said,” she said, looking over at him.

“I’m sorry,” Seth said. “I shouldn’t have said anything. Not now.”

She stared at him for a long moment, then sighed.

“What?” Seth asked.

“I’m in love with you,” she said.

Seth glanced at her for a little too long, starting to lose the road. He quickly righted the Jeep, staring out the windshield.

“You don’t have to say that,” Seth said. “I’m not going to leave you.”

She chuckled. “You think I’m just…

Bugout! California Part 64 – Lily and Alexis

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California

Scagsdale's Tales

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Tex was at the wheel of the yellow coach. He’d just gotten a text from Jules about the attack outside of Buttonwillow. He was just heading into that area now. Karen had gotten angry with his advances and left for the bedroom. Alexis and Lily were sitting at the dinette, tired of talking. Lily noticed the text sound, and came up to the front. One look at Tex’s face told her it was something scary.

“Something happened,” she said, sitting down in the passenger seat, her blonde hair shimmering in the dim light.

“Yep, something happened, but don’t worry about it.”

“What’s going on?” asked Alexis as she walked to the front. She moved like a model, tall, lanky, and confident, her longish brunette hair swaying as she crouched.

“He got a text,” Lily said. “Something scary. Look at his face. Look how he’s watching the mirrors.”

Tex chuckled. “I’ve…
