Miyoko decided to just walk along the highway, maybe she could find something useful along the way. Her sister shudders as they pass the empty cars.
"It's so... quiet." she whispers. 3 seconds later. Screaming. All around. Miyoko tackles her sister and pushes her under a car.
"Be quiet, or I'm going to run away from you with no hesitation!" she whispers angrily.
"Because if those crazy people find us, we're going to be eaten by our own kind." she says, getting under the car with her. Her sister falls dead silent.
"What's going on?! Why are people killing each other?"
"So that they can survive. You've read the hunger games. Think of it like that. Stay quiet, stay unseen, stay alive. Now be quiet! They are coming!!"
Blood covered boots walk just inches away from the car they were under.
"Make sure there are no survivors! Take anything valuable or edible! We are going to survive!" a man yells. Other boots run after him as he walks. Miyoko sees a small pair. 'Just a little kid, forced to kill...'
A few minutes later they are gone and Miyoko and Kacie (her sister) role out from under the car.
"Well now what?" Kacie asks.
"Keep walking, and hope we don't bump into more of those guys."
"How far away is Wisconsin?"
"Hmm... 3 or 4 days walk, if we're swift. Now would be the time to turn back if you're going to do it at all." Miyoko says as she climbs over cars and steps over dead bodies.
"No. I'm not going to leave. I'm not surviving without you, and you know it."
"You got that right..." Miyoko whispers to herself. "Hurry up, I want to find shelter before sunrise." she calls back to Kacie.
Ethan and Jackson sit in the alley, making a plan.
"No, trust me, that is not going to help us at all." Ethan says, crossing out Jackson's writings.
"No, really! I think it will keep us going!"
"Jackson, buying pie is not going to make us go any faster!" Ethan yells. The screaming starts there, too.
"What's going on?" Jackson whispers, getting scared. Very scared.
Before Ethan could answer, a guy with a gun comes running around the corner and shoots Jackson in the shoulder. Immediately, Ethan springs up and tackles the man. He bruises him pretty good, but before he can win, he takes a bullet to the leg.
