It was horrific and haunted every bit of sleep she had. A re- occuring nightmare of the fall of her home. Luckily for them she was always prepared and most of their food stores where inside of moving trucks. They had even manged to save alot of the livestock and load them into trailors. The convoy had been traveling for a while now and it was nearly half the comunity. Tiffany was leading the group in a truck with Tony. If it hadnt been for him she may have found herself tempted to eat a bullet.
They had stopped for some rest in a foot ball staduim whcih they cleared and had made camp. It was easily securable but they still werent sure where to move next. Only five had made it in her convoy. She had Tony, Addy, The pregnant woman sophia and her one eyes boyfriend. It was partially their fault for the fall of the community. After Talon killed off those men a large group came and knocked down walls letting walkers in.
Alot of people had died but Tiffany wasnt trying to play the blame game. They had hoped to re group with some of the survivors but that hadnt seemed to be possible right now. Still she could hear the screams in her head and in shook her awake in the night. Shooting up quickly her breathign was rapid and there was a cold sweat on her skin. Looking around the tent her gaze fell on Tony who was sleeping.

Sleep seldom reached Tony in general, but after what happened at the place he wanted to call home, sleep was even more elusive. He shot awake shortly after Tiffany did. Just like Tiffany, Tony woke up from a nightmare, the screams rang in his ears every time he tried to rest, and the faces of the people he believed he failed to save were burned into the back of his mind. He turned to Tiffany. "Nightmares again?" Tony sighed. "Same here." Tony pulled Tiffany into a hug, gently kissing her forehead as streams of tears rolled down his face. He couldn't get the faces of the dead out of his mind, and he couldn't stop thinking that he failed them. Wiping the tears from his face he looked at Tiffany. "Wanna try and get some more sleep? Or should we get up and see what needs to be done out there?"
Sometime after the incident that happened outside the community walls. Things went from bad to worse when they were attacked and people scrambled to escape. Everyone was scattered in the wind and this group was fractured as well as any sense of security. Sophia was pretty far along in her pregnancy at this point and she had been growing rather disconnected from everyone. Talon included just because her distrust of men had returned. The feeling of his touch just made her want to lash out and escape.
Talon had never really harmed her other than the intimate moments they shared but that wasn't something she complained about. Since they stopped to settle in this Football stadium. An RV was brought in to be her home and they managed to get a solar power panel running to it. Had to keep the Pregnant girl safe from the world and as of late she slept alone. Talon was basically given the choice of on the ground in the stadium or the couch inside the RV.
There was a part of her that trusted him but after her experiences, she just grew worse on trusting men. This morning she was up early feeling sick and hugging the toilet in her makeshift home. The stress made it hard to keep anything down and she really just wanted the whole pregnancy thing over. She wasn't even sure how Ava had handled it. Wiping her mouth she moved back into the hall of the RV. Talon was snoring and dead asleep on the couch.
Rolling her eyes she moved passed him and headed out into the fresh cool air of the morning. Looking around she spotted the Red HEad known as Addy cooking some eggs that the chickens had finally laid once they got settled. The smell made her want to be sick again but it was overpowered by her hunger. "Good Morning."
Things had spiraled into chaos when the community was Attacked. a lot of people so used to the safety of the walls had died horrible deaths. One of which was Both hers and Tiffany's childhood friend Saffron. They had almost all escaped but she had gone back for something and gotten snagged by a walker. Addy wasn't a big one on showing her emotions to people.
The fact was she was once again separated from her father and now she was grieving the loss of a real good friend that she had just gotten back. She had been up for about three days straight so far. Minus the occasional 30 minute nap until the nightmares kicked in. Last night she took the guard watch so everyone could try to form some sort of sleep. When Early morning rose she had gone into one of their makeshift chicken pens to grab eggs she found.
They hadn't saved all the livestock but they got most of the birds. as well as a few goats, pigs and cattle. They had put in overtime getting water catch systems set up and trying to get the power of the stadium convert to solar. They were all tired and it was stressful because they were having to learn by trial and error. Over the fire she had built she got the eggs cooking along with a canned jar of chicken soup.
Addison may have seemed like a regular Hard ass but she knew Sophia was having trouble keeping food down. The soup would give her something a little milder and stable to eat than fried eggs. This was their reality now and they all seemed to cling to keeping this woman and her baby alive. Hearing a voice she looked up to see the very woman she had been thinking about. "Morning ma'am."
She wasn't much of the Crying type and even though she wanted to just curl up. It wasn't in her nature but her arms wrapped around Tony when he hugged her. "We probably need to get a move on. Were just burning Daylight and I'm still trying to get the power systems in this place switched to the solar panels we've put in." She spoke with a sigh as she kissed him on the cheek and found her pants. Pulling them back onto her body she pulled on a pair of Sneakers as well. Giving a wink to Tony she unzipped the tent door and moved out into the open.
Stretching her arms she glanced around to See Sophia and Addison near a fire where breakfast was being made. Right now they weren't really hurting for food so at least that wasn't something to worry about. Getting the power on so they could close the top of the stadium before winter hit was the priority. "Morning guys." She said with a slight smile on her lips before sitting around the fire. "Addy I thought you should take tony and go scout out the area. Find anything of use and bring it back. Water definitely on the priority today." Tiffany spoke falling back into her leadership ways.
The truth was she was kind of relieved to not be responsible for all those people anymore. Someone still had to step up and be the leader right now. It was basically a force of habit to take the role on. It was all she had done for the past few months. "How are you feeling Sophia?" She asked curiously as her eyes moved to the woman's stomach.

Tony quickly got dressed before following Tiffany out of the tent. As he left the tent he saw Sophia and Addy outside the rv making breakfast. "Morning everybody." He said as he sat next to Tiffany and listened in on the conversation. Tony was more than happy to go scout the area, he needed to clear his head, he needed a release and killing walkers always did the trick for him. "Find anything we can bring back and water is a priority, understood, I'll go get my gear and I'll meet you outside the Stadium Addy." Tony said as he stood up and left to grab his gear. Tony quickly grabbed his shotgun and revolver along with a large duffel bag and some extra ammo before heading to the outside of the stadium.
As Tony waited for Addy, he had some old thoughts return, thoughts he couldn't keep in his head causing him to mutter to himself. "If the fuckers who attacked my home are still out there, I hope I find you, so I can rip you apart piece by piece." Tony had done his best to keep these thoughts hidden, he didn't dare let them be known by Tiffany and Addy, as understanding as they were, Tony doubted they would tolerate bloodlust, and he sure as hell didn't trust Talon enough to confide in him about it. So Tony just stood there muttering these thoughts quietly to himself waiting for Addy so he could go scout and maybe kill some walkers along the way.
A sigh escaped her lips as the order to go on a supply run was given. Addy was already tired so this was bound to be exhausting. New surroundings meant new dangers and who knew what they would run into. She doubted the group that attacked them back in Ohio had followed but you couldn't be certain these days. Rising up from her seat after scarfing down some food she headed towards her tent to grab a few supplies.
As she was Leaving she notice Talon stumbling out of the RV. Obviously, he just woke up and she roughly brushed passed him. "Try not to do anything to get us attacked while I'm gone. Would hate for you to lose that other eye." She spoke in a rather sour tone over her shoulder as she walked. Addy was standoffish of most but something about Talon made her want to sleep with one eye open.
Meeting up with Tony at the gates she gave him a half smile. "Well, let's get this show on the road Shark boy." She spoke and started to raise the metal drop-down gates. Once it was up enough for a body to roll under she gestured for Tony to exit. "Make sure you hold that gate. I don't wanna lose my head because if fell back down on me." Her tone was semi dripping with sarcasm and she carefully slipped under the gate.
Once it was lowered and secured back down she glanced towards her travel buddy. "I went with Tiffany to the West so we are gonna head east into the city. Maybe find something of use." She spoke and with fast movements, she headed away from the stadium. This little group had no idea of the large settlement on belle isle but they would find it very soon.
Tony returned Addy's half smile with a smile of his own as he laughed at her calling him Sharkboy. Tony rolled under the gate and held it up for Addy as she told him to keep hold of the gate so she wouldn't lose her head going under. "Wouldn't dream of dropping it." Tony said as Addy rolled under the gate and Tony lowered it behind her. When Addy said they were going east into the city, Tony nodded and said "You're the boss Red, lead the way." as he followed her away from the stadium and towards the city.
Down the road, Tony noticed something ahead. "Two walkers ahead, I got them." He said as he approached the walkers. Walking quietly, Tony grabbed the first walkers head and jerked it sideways breaking its neck paralyzing it. Tony couldn't help but smirk as the pathetic creature tried to bite him. Moving on to the second walker, he kicked it in the knee and stomped its head to finish it off. With every kick, part of Tony's pent up anger towards Talon and the raiders who attacked his home was released and it felt great to Tony. He then drew his shotgun and plunged the machete blade welded between the two barrels into the paralyzed walkers head and walked back to Addy cleaning the gunk off his blade. "Any specific places in the city you wanna hit first Red? Or are we just gonna skim the outside of the city?" Tony said as he sheathed his shotgun.
