“The world’s always ending,” there’s no malice in the way he spits out those four words, just a tone that conveys the harsh reality they were dealing with, “Where do you wanna be when it does?”
He’s a reasonable distance away, having been multitasking whilst they talked, and his shoulders appear taut underneath the weight of artillery strung onto them.
Bill’s pretty sure it’s not the weapons that have him looking in need of a week’s rest.
Not even a beat of silence passes before Stan’s walking towards the exit of the warehouse. Bill watches him pointedly ignore the bodies littering the floor; a mix of rotting zombie carcasses and corpses beginning to rot.
He grits his teeth, hitches his own rifle higher on his shoulder, and whispers his answer to the breeze sweeping in.
They were fighting to keep the world turning, but Stan was right. The world was gonna end eventually and he could only hope that he would be exactly where he wanted to be.
