The woman had luckily taken care of the final racist pig and instead of running the girl had turned to confront Kwai.
"Fuck," she whispered under her breath.
The next thing she knew the woman was asking who she was and what her intentions were at the place. Kwai was never one to lie unless she absolutely had to. She could probably benefit from lying now but she wouldn't do so.
"My name is Cha'kwaina Lilly and I came here to kill these people. They found my camp, burnt it down, chained Chindi in camp and left messages that I needed to burn. They were a threat."
She had raised her voice a little so that Oscar would hopefully hear her. She didn't think this was going to turn ugly but if it did Oscar could easily turn the ride and prevent her death.
Hannah listened intently to the girl, noticing how she over-exaggerated her volume, and flicked her eyes out the window quickly. She was unable to notice anything in the quick moment she looked out, but that led her to believe there weren't many others at least. Her story pushed her even further to believe that, so she figured they wouldn't want much confrontation. For the moment, she felt that she wasn't in any kind of immediate danger. She thought of the best offer of peace that wasn't showing of weakness, but came short on it.
"I don't want any problems, I just want to get the hell out of here. If you would be so kind to let me pass without giving me any problems?" She held the gun tightly, nervously gripping the hilt, and stared down the barrel intently. It would be in her favor to do away with the girl if possible, and then whoever else was there, but she was in no way in a situation where she could be so careless. If she knew what she was up against she may have considered it, but it was not the right time for that. A bit of perspiration had begun to cloak her body from the sudden flurry of action that had taken place, and the situation itself made her nervous.
"So what do you say?" She followed up with. She again looked out the window, and noticed shadows behind a truck, but nothing more. She then started to think about what kinda of people they were. That's always something to be taken into consideration. Obviously she was there for revenge, but in this day and age, cold blooded killing doesn't determine if you're good or bad, because it's necessary. Then, of course, came the thoughts that normally passed through your mind in this kind of situation, 'could they be worthy allies?'
The girl just wanted to run and she saw no problem with that. She had helped them and she saw no reason to harm her. She was one person and they had just taken out ten. It was an easy enough thing to handle one if this woman was stupid enough to come looking for them, which Kwai somehow doubted. She had asked to run, not join up or anything else. It was unlikely that she would want to try and get herself killed by trying to go up against them. If she had wanted to kill her she would have already shot her anyways. Kwai raised from her hiding spot. It wasn't really offering her much protection anyways.
"Your free to do what you want to do, but if I can make a sufgestion, if your going to run go out the back. My partner may very well think your a threat if you go running out the front. And if he sees you as a threat he will not hesitate to kill you."
She walked over and grabbed her spear, assuming that the woman didn't start freaking out, in which case she would stop. As long as the woman made no move to kill her she would also grab her Tomahawk and wipe the blood off on the dead man's clothes. They would need to bury these pieces of shit but she would not do them the honor of doing so with dignity.
"If your not going to shoot me I had probably better go make sure none of these racist assholes turn. I didn't have time to aim for the head with every shot."
Hannah, was nervous, but not because she found them threatening, it was the unknown that scared her, like swimming in the ocean, and not being able to see what swam just under you. Not only that, but something else had happened that cause her to become more anxious, something hidden from the native American girl. She kind of cocked her head to the side, finding the girl's sudden movements to be a little on the arrogant side. Before she picked up her spear, Hannah had already dropped the gun, and sprinted to the back of the building and into the forest behind. She spouted a warning before disappearing though, "There's more of them. Be careful!"
She did want to speak to the girl more, as she wasn't somebody who neccesarily wanted to be alone all the time, but she had left everything of hers back in that little town. These guys weren't the only ones in their group, and they could have found her stuff by now and looted it. She had only been pulled into the camp moments before everything that just happened, so she knew they were probably still there looking around. It wasn't far, maybe six miles through the woods, so she ran quickly, and didn't stop. She had kept the knife that she pulled off Charlie, but left the gun behind. If it weren't for her locket being in the car, she probably would've moved on and found more supplies, but that was out of the question.
On closer inspection back at the house, the revolver was empty, and she would've been firing blanks. The gun as it turned out, wasn't fully loaded, but only had two bullets in it. Back in the woods, she ran, and ran, and eventually reached the town. She had met a few undead along the way, but quickly dispatched them without stopping. As she reached the outskirts of the town, she could see that the men had indeed not left yet, but were getting closer to where she parked her Prelude. She moved silently, and quickly, towards the back of a building nearby across the street. There were only about five men, and if she could sneak up on them while they were alone, she might be able to take them all out. She didn't want to risk being followed by this lot. She moved quickly across the street while one of them scouted, and looked in the other direction, and as she moved to the back entrance of the general store, she thought, 'I guess they had nothing to be worried about.' Then chuckled to herself.
Kwai heard her last minute warning and turned back around and walked out the door. The woman was gone and it was no sweat off of her back. She saw Oscar standing with the injured man. She didn't care what Oscar did to the man to be honest. She was going to kill him as soon as he gave them the information they needed anyways.
"Seems like your savior had to run, shame too. She was kind of cute," Kwai said laughing.
She walked up to the man on the ground and leaned down.
"You should probably tell us what we want to know. Oscar over here has a mean temper, and I won't stop him."
The information was mostly just a scare tactic but she was fairly certain it was also the truth. He seemed the type to fly off the handle, much like she had done when she found her camp in ruins. She would need new supplies and they would need to find a place to rest for the night. It was way to cold at night to not have shelter and blankets.
"Oh and if your counting on your friends to come save your skin I wouldn't count on it. Shadow will hear them a mile away."
"Such a shame," Oscar laughed. "Would have loved to meet her. Guess I'll just have to put up with you. Me encanta tu culo," he said smiling.
He like at the man and kicked his stomachs. "Speak up pendejo."
The man glared at the pair. "Fuck you t'ah dam savages," he said spitting on K'wai.
"I sugest talking," Oscar said brining his fist toward the mans face. He broke his nose, the blood poring into his mouth.
"Fine I'll talk. What do you wanna know," he asked spitting up blood.
"Let's start with why you Attacked us," Oscar asked.
"Yall are Damb savages. We saw this sweet little thing and have been waiting to strike. We planned on keeping the population alive. When you wernt in y'ah camp. We burned it the fuck down," he laughed.
Oscar kicked him again. "How'd you find us?"
"Y'ah Damb noise making lured more than the bitches. We heard y'ah and followed yah car," the man spoke.
"Anything else to ask him K'wai," Oscar asked.
"K'wai that's a pertty name. I could imagine myself squealing that as we bred like rabbits," the man chuckled.
Kwai listened to the man tell his story. He was such a damn hick that she had to struggle to make sense of his idiotic mumbling. She wasn't suprised that it had been noose that had attracted them but she really didn't care. They would wait for the others and kill them too and then they would likely sleep here.
"How many of your friends are out searching for the girls car?"
The man shook his head. "No way I'm tellin Y'ah that."
"Wrong answer she said and kicked him in the shoulder that still had an arrow in it. The man's eyes rolled back in his head but somehow he managed to stop himself from passing out.
"Ok ok, there are 5 of us boys out there."
She smiled and looked to Oscar.
"You want the honors or should I have Shadow do it?"
"I didn't have the time to ensure a head shot every time. Couldn't risk giving you time to do something stupid," her tone was definitely joking.
Shadow had killed the man after a bit of screaming and she pulled the arrow out of his arm and stuck it through an eye.
She went around collecting her arrows and rendering those that had not gotten a head shot unable to ten by stabbing them through the eye. Two of her arrows were broken, which put her down to 8 usable arrows. One more shot from one of them and she was going to lose that one too.
"I probably should have let it go but that camp has been my home for a long time now. On top of that they knew where we were and we couldn't risk that."
Hannah stopped just before the corner to the back of the building. Cautiously, she peaked around the corner, and then whipped her head back around to cover. Unlike most of their actions so far, they actually did something relatively smart this time, they posted somebody at the back door. She looked back towards the front of the building, and noticed a ladder going towards the top with a security grate towards the bottom. She would have to get past it, but it would be the best route considering how far a distance it would be to get to the man posted out back. He would surely see her first, and he had a shotgun.
She positioned herself in front of the grate, and stuck her slender fingers through it. With pressure from her feet against the wall, she climbed slowly and steadily, trying to be as quiet as she could until she reached the first available pole, and grabbed it. She did this a moment longer until she was able to place her foot on one. She quickly, but silently, climbed the rest of the way up, and after checking the roof, climbed over. She crouched to the edge of the roof where the guard was, and peeked over. Fortunately, it was only about a fifteen foot drop. She shook her head and sigh, and then leaped down. She braced for impact and landed atop his shoulders with the middle of her foot. As the man slammed into the ground, she rolled her feet back so that her heels were on his shoulder blades, and after taking the shock from the landing, she took the knife to the back of his head.
That left three inside the store, and one in the front of it. She quickly dragged him aside, and took the shotgun from him. She put the gun's lanyard around her, so that it lay on her back, and slowly opened the door to look inside. The store was dark, but she could see the surroundings from the shadows cast by the lanterns each of the men held. She slowly opened the door, and crept in, making sure to close it slowly behind her so it didn't slam. As soon as she was safe in that respect, she quickly moved behind an aisle that was just full enough to make decent cover, and allow her to see where the men were.
Two of the men were towards the front of the building, probably stashing bags of chips, which were probably as hard as rocks at this point. The other two were on opposite sides of the building, one seemed to be doing something, of what she couldn't tell, and the other was just looking around. She moved along the edge of the aisles, mainly letting the lights be her guide, and reached the one who was looking about. He might have been tougher to take care of because of that fact, but he was the closest one to the back, so she took her chances. He neared the end of the aisle, and she readied herself. As he passed, she sighed in relief as she came up behind him and placed her hands over his mouth. She only did it long enough to cut his throat. He still tried to yell, and his voice came out as a liquidy gargle. She again stabbed him, but this time in the skull, and lowered him to the ground. One of the men must have heard him, because one of the lights came dancing down the far aisle.
She turned just in time to see him look her way and reach for something. She didn't wait for him to pull whatever it was out. She quickly pulled the shotgun around, and fired it. The shot kicked the man back against the wall, and already close to the ground, sent Hannah on her ass and sliding back a few yards. She scrambled to her feet, and raced towards the back door. A pistol went off, and her right ear started ringing as it whizzed past. She made it to the door, and got through it just in time to feet it hit the steel door behind her. She reloaded the shotgun, and raced towards the front of the building. As she reached the front, the man who was on guard came around the corner with his gun at the ready. She quickly stopped and planted her feet. As she fired off the shotgun, she stumbled backwards, and it arched high into the air. She had actually been aiming at his chest, but she somehow managed to hit him in the face.
She ran past him as he dropped, running back towards the woods. They followed close behind her, obviously enraged about their pals being killed, as they shouted off all kinds of curses to her. She stopped, and ducked behind a tree as quickly as she could. The men who were following her must have noticed that the sound of her feet had stopped, because instead of running ahead, they stopped and began to look closely at their surroundings. She was debating her next move. She didn't want to die, but this had gone south quickly.
"Agreed," Oscar said pulling out his spear. "That's why we should go after them. We can't risk them staying alive." He scratched his chin and looked K'wai, "unless you're to scared," he said jokingly.
He watched the wolf kill the man, it was gruesome but they deserved no less. He made sure his gun was fully loaded, it left him with only three other clips. He went around and collected Ammon from all the guns before returning to K'wai.
"Where did the girl run off to? If she's after these men flowing her might be out best option."
"Well she headed off in about the direction that the talker said his friends had went in so that seems a good assumption. I'll have Shadow track her."
She knelt down and patted Shadow on his head.
"Track Shadow," she said and he started sniffing around.
He quickly found the scent and started off in the direction that Hannah had ran off in. She could have kept the track herself, the woman had not bothered to cover her tracks and Kwai was a skilled tracker but Shadow loved tracking.
They moved at a light jog. Oscar was bound to be hurting but she knew he would put everything that he had into keeping up. He was tough, and if she was honest she admired him. He had never been trained in her people's ways but he seemed to naturally get things that had taken her years to understand.
She heard crashing through the woods and instantly dropped to the ground and hid behind some foliage. She gave a quiet whistle to Shadow that was an order to lay low and stay in position until she ordered otherwise.
The woman ran by and she probably wouldn't see Kwai. She would probably have missed her even if she was moving slowly and so at her break neck speed it would be damn near impossible. Soon after she came by so did two more of the racist assholes. Kwai came out of her hiding place and an arrow seemed to appear in the back of the man that was further back. He fell to the ground and tumbled a bit when he hit the ground. She couldn't help but chuckle at the macabre scene.
Oscar nodded as the wolf took off. He followed as closely as he could. His leg burned in pain, though it was getting better by the day. He huffed and layed through, his hand going to the muscle in his leg. He limped along and looked at her ahead of him.
When he heard crashing he saw K'wai duck down. He followed he moves and dropped down too. He hid behind a large bush, peaking through at the women running by. He saw two men chasing her.
Oscar watched as K'wai stepped out and fired her arrow. He went to aim his fund but decied aainst it. He took the spear from his back. It left his hands and flew through the air. It hit the other man in te back and knocked him to the groud. The man died on impact, impailed on the ground.
Hannah peaked around the bend as she heard heavy dull thuds from the direction the men were. She saw a spear in one, and a arrow in the other. The sight of them sparked a memory, and then she recalled the spear that the native American girl was about ready to pick up when she had shot out of there. She got on her feet, and stepped out and into the light of the lanterns, the light casting an eerie glare off her sweaty body. She panted lightly, obviously tired from running, and ready to take a break.
"Thanks, I guess," she said as she took the shotgun off of her shoulders, and threw it on the ground. "That's twice you've saved me, and I'm sure you had your own personal reasons, but I figure I owe you one. I came back to get my car because of what's inside it, but if you want I can give you a ride wherever you need to go. Up to you." She walked past them, keeping her distance, and moving in a hurried pace. The car wasn't too far from where they were, parked in the alleyway between two houses, and within ten minutes she arrived.
The girl dropped her gun so Kwai eased the arrow that she had already knocked back to a resting position. This woman was obviously not a threat at the moment and if she later became one Kwai was certain that she could handle that situation. There were two of them, and they were better armed. The woman also said that she owed them so she hoped that the woman had nothing nefarious planned.
Normally Kwai would have turned down the ride but with Oscar's leg they really couldn't do that. He wouldn't likely make it back to the Jeep at this point and it was starting to get cold. They needed to get somewhere warm fast. She whistled and Shadow came to her. She motioned for Oscar to follow and walked behind the woman. She couldn't help but check her out as they walked. She had a cute ass. Kwai couldn't believe she was checking this woman out but it had been quite some time since she had seen an attractive woman and she missed it. She preferred woman, not to say that she didn't like men too but her first experiences had all been with woman.
"We want to get back to the house," she said when they finally reached the car. "You might want to think about staying there with us tonight. It gets far too cold out here at night to sleep in your car."
"The more us together the better. Even jts for the night. Having more bodies in one room should be good," Oscar said nodding. "What did you need from your car? Why was it so important to you?" He looked at the women and smile. He could see her sweat, glistening in the light. It brought images to his mind. He quickly shook them away when he saw K'wai check out the girl. "I saw that," he said whispering to her. "Now I know why I didn't have a chance." He followed the pair.
"Can your car fit us and the wolf," he asked raising a brow, "I doubt K'wai would want the wolf to be left behind.
Hannah was taken aback as the wolf came into visible range, but she quickly gained her composure as she could tell it wasn't going to attack based on how it's ears moved. She didn't know how she felt with a wolf in the back seat, but she figured she could make room, at least not being somebody who went back on her word. She opened the door to the front seat, and not realizing she was being thoroughly inspected, bent way over to reach into the small car to get her keys from atop the sun visor. She then popped her seat forward, and then walked towards the back of the car.
"It's a small car, meant more for maneuverability, but I can remove the car parts from the trunk, and put my stuff in there instead. They aren't for this car anyways." She quickly popped the trunk, and began to toss the parts out, making a ruckus. She didn't plan to be there long enough for any listening walkers to get to them anyways. After emptying the trunk, she promptly moved the boxes from the back seat, and cleared out the inside of the car. Before she moved towards the driver's seat, she pulled a necklace with a heart shaped locket from one of the boxes, and placed it around her neck, holding it tightly.
"I came back for this. It's the last thing from my previous life I hold as important. Anyways, I recommend you," she pointed at the native American girl, "sit in the back with the wolf, and him in the front," she said as she pointed at the latino, "because of his injury. It's a sport car, so it doesn't have much room, but it will fit us all in it." After she said what she did about seat organization, she hopped into the driver's seat, revved the car up, and waited for them to get in. The car hummed smoothly for it's age and use. That was thanks to her car repair skills.
"What you think my door only swings one way?" She whispered back, stifling her laugh.
She really couldn't help but look when Hannah so obligingly offered a full view of her ass by bending down to grab her keys. Was this woman trying to get their goats now? Of course she wasn't, but Kwai wanted to think she was. Her mind played the picture game and it was a very nice picture but she had to get rid of it. If she let list cloud her mind she could miss something that might get her killed.
"My names Cha'kwaina by the way but if that is too hard Kwai will work. My wolf's name is Shadow."
With that said she had Shadow load up into the back seat and then climbed in herself. He was restless like he always got in cars. He had seemed to grow accustomed to the Jeep but this small thing felt like a death trap to both him and Kwai. It was far too small for her comfort and she suspected it was capable of moving at an intense rate of speed that would make her feel like her head was splitting apart.
"Have you been on your own long?" she asked, trying at making small talk. A skill she wasn't very good at.
"Your eyes a fixated on her though. Never saw that look when you looked at me," Oscar whispered back.
As the girl bent over and roved stuff her tiny car he chuckled. He could see why K'wai was staring. God it had been so long. He could feel his partner beig distescted, that means his guard needed to be raised
"Car seems useless. It can barely fit anything and the gas mileage in these things," Oscar said moving around to the passenger door. "We could always go get my jeep. It's not far from the house."
Oscar climes in his seat and tried to stretch out his legs. He felt weird not having his bag on him. Being wirhout supplies. He eyed the women as she sat inside. "I'm Oscar," he said extending his hand. "Sorry I don't have a fancy name like K'wai."
"I'm Hannah. I've been with a group before, but only for a short period, besides that I've always been on my own." She shifted up, and started up quickly as Oscar lifted his hand to her, and looked over at it sourly, and then back at the road irritated about his comment, "Shows how much you know about cars. Just because it's a sports car doesn't mean it uses up a lot of gas. I've been traveling alone for a long time, so I didn't need anything bigger, and a Jeep?" She scoffed, "You wanna talk about gas mileage? This car trumps a Jeep."
As they drove, the passengers may have been a little put off by her driving. She was a superb driver, but as fast as she was going, it wouldn't be a surprise if everybody else in the vehicle felt whiplash. She slowed down and tried to drive relatively quiet as they neared the house again, and began to slow down, not wanting to attract walkers to their location. She looked back at the wolf in her rear-view as they pulled in, and directed her attention towards Kwai, "So what's the deal with the wolf? Some kind of familiar connection, or you raise him from his pup years?"
She stopped right outside of the place, and shut the engine down. As she waited for Kwai to answer she patted Oscar on the shoulder, "Nice to meet you." She didn't want to be on bad terms with a man she barely knew, and her tone with him earlier might have made it look that way. She especially didn't want to be on bad terms since she decided she might as well stick around that night. Sleep would be rough though.
