They were travelling to a road that leads to the unknown. They both don’t know where they are going. KC was silent. She thought that yesterday was a happy and go lucky day. Her mom is alive and always busy. But now, it is all dead and also her mother. Her dreams crushed in one single day. She has no more to look forward to. She has no longer to live for. She started to tear up.
“Hey, are you okay?” Jeremiah was concerned. She has been through enough and even he has. KC didn’t respond. He was annoyed because he can’t stand the silence anymore, it has been a day since all of it went down.
“KC! Will you snap out of it?! This is not helping! We don’t even know where we are headed!!”
“WELL THEN DROP ME OFF HERE! I HAVE NOTHING! YOU SAVED ME! YOU COULD’VE LEFT ME THERE!” KC shouted and burst into tears. KC grabbed the wheel and turned it to the side of the road so that the car would stop. Jeremiah stepped on the break and KC got out of the car and ran. Jeremiah chased her and tried to find her. He saw her kneeling and crying not too far from the roadside. He sat beside her and put his arms around trying to comfort her.
“Jeremiah, it is all my fault. I should’ve been the one who got eaten. Melissa wanted to be left behind but I insisted but she set her mind. And now she is in pieces at the university.”
“It is not your fault. THIS is not your fault. None of it is your fault. The world turned to shit in one day and you can’t blame yourself for that. Melissa made her choice and she knew the consequences. Just be grateful that you survived.”
KC wasn’t convinced but she showed a sly smile. “I’m going to miss her and also my mom. Aren’t you going to miss her?”
“Yeah even though she has an annoying and loud voice”
KC elbowed him and Jeremiah chuckled. “I’m kidding. I will miss her.” Jeremiah noticed the rustling bushes. “We better get out of here. I think something is coming”
They both walked back to the car and drove off. They continued on the road and KC back at staring at the window but Jeremiah held her hand and smiled at her. KC smiled back.
They stumbled upon a gas station with a small store beside it. They got out of the car, parking their car near the gas filler. Jeremiah tries to fill the car with gas until a woman put a gun on his face.
“Let go of the gas filler”
