She leans closer, resting her hand over my heart, she smiles to the feeling of my heart racing. Time begins to slow down, I blink for a second seeing were eye to eye. She lift's up my shirt, placing her hand over my stomach, my hand twitches a bit. She runs her finger along my scar, feeling the question running through her mind on how I got it. Her breathing changed, as so did mine. "Whoa... sorry to interupt here." James says. Liz loses her balance pushing me down, hitting the floor. We lock eyes for a quick second. "Hey, you alright?" he asks. We both get up. "Yea.. were fine. what are you doing?" Liz asks. "Came to use the can, everyone's knocked out." he says, backing up heading to the bathroom.
"Um...I should get Julie, tell Wendy to come to bed." Liz says, walking out of the room, disappearing around the corner. I shake my head a bit, grabbing the bottle taking one last swig for the night. Liz returns with Julie, as Wendy follows her behind her. My eye catches on wendys sleep wear, my running shorts and a button up. "Jesus...I guess everyone made themselves feel like home. James comes back out from the restroom. "Alright, everyone rest up...I'm taking first watch. Jame's your second." James heads back to the living room, while the girls get there sleep, and I head to my old mans room. "Angel... what are you doing?" Liz asks appearing around the corner. I pull out a bag, unzipping it, and pulling out my first 22. rifle my pops got me when I was fourteen. The sight of it just made me want to start hitting heads, the barrel was silver while the rest of the body was black. "Nice rifle." Liz says. I grab the mags, the cases of bullets, and the mags. "Thanks..it's been a long time I've fired this." We walk out the room, heading to the kitchen window. "Wait, where are you going to take watch?" she asks. "From the gas station across the highway. I have to see if anyone passes through...let them know were alive." I watch her look away, stepping up to her, and placing my hand on her cheek. It got warmer by the second, feeling herself burying her cheek into my palm. "I'll be back. promise. If anything happens, here the keys to my moms ride. I see Wendy standing at the door way of my room. "Does your radio still work?" she nods. "Yea..why?" she asks. "ok..and don't worry about that, put it on channel 4, and give me thirty minutes. Keep the windows locked, and wait till we get back." I turn around opening the window, James gets out first. "Angel..wait.." Liz says. She walks up to me, as I look over my shoulder, feeling her kiss my cheek. My heart skips a beat, stepping foward, and crawling outside the window, hearing it shut behind us.
"Let's do this."
