“Maybe I got tired of seeing Kevin bend. Or maybe it was the zombies.” When Andrew just stared at him, Neil shrugged and said, “A few weeks back you and Renee argued contingency plans for a zombie apocalypse. She said she’d focus on survivors. You said you’d go back for some of us. Five of us,” Neil said, splaying his fingers at Andrew. “You weren’t counting Abby or Coach. Since you trust Renee to handle the rest of the team, I’m guessing the last spot is for Dobson.” He knew Andrew wouldn’t answer that, so he dropped his hand and said, “I didn’t say anything then because I knew I’d only look out for me when the world went to hell. I don’t want to be that person anymore. I want to go back for y o u.”
Some may call it a curse A life like mine But others, a blessing It’s certainly a lonely life But a fulfilling one and the best It’s my cross to bear And I’ll bear it gladly Someone has to take a stand against evil Why should it not be me? -within temptation, why not me.
