moved quickly down the busy sidewalk, darting out of the way of other
pedestrians as she walked against the flow of traffic. Her eyes moved
in every direction. She didn’t know exactly what she was looking for,
but there had to be somewhere
couldn’t follow her. In the last week she had tried hiding in two
different churches and
mosque; neither had deterred him. If she didn’t find some way to
elude him today, there might not be a tomorrow. He was getting more
aggressive by the day, fueled by his need for revenge.
oh why had she ever gone out with Ash in the first place?
at the memory, Enid shook her head and continued down the busy
street. Honestly, it was a little weird for it to be so busy. Sure,
it was a Saturday, but were there usually this many people walking
around in a small town like this? Curiosity managed to sneak beyond
her fear, giving her a tiny glimmer of hope. If a large enough group
of people were gathered together, maybe that would be enough to buy
her a little time. Even as bloodthirsty as Ash had become, surely he
wouldn’t try anything if she was in a crowd. Would he?
The decision was made a long time ago, before any of us knew each other. We were all strangers who would’ve just passed each other on the street before the world ended. And now we mean everything to each other. You were in trouble. You were trapped. Glenn didn’t know you, but he helped you. He put himself in danger for you. And that started it all, from Atlanta, to my daddy’s farm, to prison, to here, to this moment now. Not as strangers, as family. Because Glenn chose to be there for you a long time ago, that was the decision that changed everything. It started with both of you, and it just grew. All of us. To sacrifice for each other. To suffer, to stand, to grieve, to give, to love, to live, to fight for each other. Glenn made the decision, Rick. I was just following his lead.
