It has been two days since the runner killed Bobby. The houses that we searched on W North Street in Pontiac, Illinois yielded some crackers and expired soup, which I ate since Henry was old and Maria was the woman of the group.

We are finally out of fuel just outside of Pontiac, Illinois. Henry, Maria, Bobby, and I have been practically starved to death this week, only finding the occasional stash of food inside of an abandoned car.

THE STAND by Stephen King was not the best choice since I had a nasty habit of not being able to put a book down and THE STAND was over 1000 pages long. I barely noticed the postings in the newspaper that year and I simply did not take the time to read them as I worked at a gas station in Macon, Illinois and I needed to shove in more hours to help my bother get bailed from jail sooner.…Continue

"Seriously?" Carlos called to me from the front of the store. "More soda?"
"Don't judge me kid," I called back. "I'm a man, and men have needs."
I was browsing the refrigerator aisle, looking for a few bottles of Vanilla Coke, when I heard the shattering of glass back towards the front of the store. I…Continue
