Anthony couldn't help but smirk when Iris refused his handshake. "This one's got attitude, if we can get her join us she'd fit right in" He thought to himself as she said her name and started talking to TJ. Anthony then began walking to his truck to get the first aid kit for Billy. Once he returned he began stitching up the wound on Billy's leg, it wasn't lethal but it was deep enough to need sutures. "Man she really kicked your ass Kid." He chuckled as he patched up Kid. "That was some impressive shooting Iris, you shot the gun out of his hand and put a knife in his knee, I gotta give it to you, you're clever and I damn good fighter."

At Tony's remark about her prowess for handling combat situation's with other survival's Iris would give a half-hearted smile before adverting her eye's back down as he dealt with Kid's wounds that she herself inflicted. TJ came rushing back clearly intrigued by her remark about nothing in a 32 mile radius, "Who did you see 32 miles from here? How many? What direction? How many weapons? Do they have food? Water?"
Iris paused for a second but thinking about how serious he was it was a foolish choice not to answer, "Northeast, a small camp of fourteen, two gunner's and the other's holding weapons such as axe's,spear's, blade's. They allowed me to stay there a couple of days in exchange for..." Iris paused as she had already said too much, but she knew her pause would only make them suspicious and with her being surrounded by three armed man even with her gun she would either be killed or subdued easily.
"I exchanged a tank of gas for a four day's ration's of food, in their armory they have about seven gun's not including the one's the gunner's have but their restricted as those gun's are private collection of the gunner's." Iris stopped talking and stared blankly into the air, if she was going to tell them all of this, she might as well get them to assist her in taking their supplies, although they had helped her then the world they lived in was a game of survival, one Iris planned to win.
"There camp number is small but their actual camp is huge since it's a college football field, but with only two entrance's one in the front and the other in the back but they only use the front and keep the back boarded. Realistically they would be easy to overrun and take down, that is if you want their food, water, guns and weapons, and the gas and car's they have with them. But if you want to get inside, your going to have to take me with you." As she said that Iris smiled, she knew it was a offer that all three could hardly refuse.

Kid shot Anthony a dirty look at his compliments of g Iris getting one over on him. Kid listen as she describe the set up 'We can split our men in to two groups we make some kind of distraction at the back drawl them away why we sneek if know if numbers shouldn't be hard to over power them' Kid said quickly clearly trying to regain some respect and authority. This time was Iris turn for a dirty look as he turned to look at her. 'Thank you for everything really been joy meeting you but think we got it covered ' Kid said with very fake smile

Iris listened as kid explained his plan of action, "We can split our men in to two groups and make some kind of distraction at the back to draw them while we sneak,wouldn't be hard to over power them know that we know their number's." He then turned towards her and made quite a dirty face, "Thank you for everything really been joy meeting you but think we got it covered."
Iris shrugged nonchalantly, "You can do that, sure it would be simple enough. But your plan require's a decent amount of man power to accomplish and even if you draw them to the back, unless you take out those gunner's somehow your not getting inside, and even if you do take them out from the outside that warrant's the risk of alerting the rest of the twelve and with those in power that held the restriction's gone do you really think they would hesitant to take up arms to defend themselves?"
"Ultimately even if you manage to kill the entire camp the amount of gunfire would attract alot of walker's to the area, in which you would have to fight them off while gathering the rest of the supplies which would be a waste of the ammo fire of both yours and the one's you just procured."
"If you take me their, i can get inside quietly as i am already in their good favor. Once inside i can pose a drink of liquor too the two gunner's laced with just enough sleeping agent to put them asleep for a couple hours, by doing that not only do we cripple their defense's but i can let you guys in without wasting a single bullet and you guys can subdue the camp before they even know what hit them."

TJ listened to Iris' plan, but didn't like it. He produced a tattered road map of Arizona from a hip pouch in his combat fatigues, and spread it out over the hood of Iris' truck. Using the width of his thumb to gauge distances against the map scale, TJ pointed out the path.
"Thirty two miles northeast of here is Marble Canyon, which is over a hundred miles north of our boys in Flagstaff. We've already taken a gamble putting 75 miles between ourselves and our people to come up here. It would be a 350 mile or so round trip to go back to Flagstaff, mostly empty handed, and ask our people to go 100 miles north to raid for food and 100 miles back to keep getting our kicks on Route 66 to Albequerque. That's a lot of gas wasted, and we'd have to go over road because the terrain is too rough, so there isn't even an element of surprise. But..."
TJ walked over to the edge of the canyon and spread his arms wide dramatically as if to showcase the thousands of walkers shambling below and said, "We have an army right here that can be clearing them bitches out of Marble Canyon in 15 hours or so, if we knew any crazy fuckers with noisemaking bombs to coax them in the right direction and were tired of eating goddamned coyotes. I don't know about you but I'll eat a fuckin' baby before I eat another coyote... Comin' up the canyon and right through their asses with thousands of hungry fuckfaces behind us sounds like fun."

Anthony listened intently to everyone's plans thinking to himself about each option until he heard Kid attempt to refuse letting Iris join. "Sorry Kid." Anthony said with a smirk. "But she not only showed herself a capable fighter, she also gave us a lead to good place to score supplies, I'd say she's earned herself a place with us." Anthony paused to hear Iris's plan before adding; "Plus she's clever too." As TJ starting pointing out the issues with he plan, Anthony's smile began to fade. "Shit this might not work out so well." Anthony thought to himself. However when TJ started talking about bombs, a wild smile crept across his face s he dashed to his truck grabbing his duffel bag full of pipe bombs and showing them to the group. "Would these work?" Anthony asked excitedly "Or do you need me to make bigger ones because I can make much bigger ones if necessary."

TJ always enjoyed Tony's zeal for blowing shit up. But, he had to restraint expectations. "I appreciate your enthusiasm, Tony, We both know there is no damned such thing as a bomb that is too big. But, we just need a few to get the stinktooth's attention and get them all marching behind us. Gunshots, flashing lights, horn honking and such would keep them focused after that. And, shit, 30 miles at 2 miles an hour to keep them focused is not going to be a fun drive. They're gonna bottleneck as the width of the canyon shrinks from ten miles down to a few hundred feet, but we're probably gonna run out of road down there well before then. We gotta get at least a few hundred out of the canyon basin and up on the road to Marble Canyon. I dont wanna find out there's nothing but river and mile high rock walls getting a truck stuck down there with thousands of rotters on my tailpipe. We need to think this through. We are going to lead hundreds of stankers into that camp, for reals, because we've always wanted to do it and this is a great opportunity to try it. And then we can refine it and perfect the tactic. I've been wanting to steer a herd like this since the world went tits up. But, we do things unanimously. That means Kid is gotta be balls deep in on this fuckin' crazy too."
Then TJ turned to Kid. "I ain't eatin' no damn coyote when we can run the meatheads through those food hoarders all day long. And, if this chick is lying about the football stadium food stash, we'll fuckin' eat her. Deal?"
TJ hadn't been desperately hungry enough to eat another human being since the horrors of Tennessee, but he liked the taste better than coyote meat.

Kid stared at TJ mouth slightly open as he listen to the plan. He'd known TJ for a few months now and Kid couldn't work out if he a genius or crazy he change his mind about it at lease fore times a day if Kid had to answer he'd say he flirting with the line between the two. Also meant Kid was never to sure if TJ was joking or not Kid started to laugh at the idea of eating this Iris women believing it was a joke and that the men he'd been traveling with remembered whose side they are and giving Kid some support better late then never he guessed. But Kid stop laughing abruptly realizing TJ could very well be serious about eating Iris. Never the less Kid ego had been bruised and he felt like he had something to prove to everyone so at this point could almost get him to go along with any crazy plan someone came up with after smoking god knows what and Kid wonded briefly if TJ knew that and was playing on it. Never the less
Kid look TJ dead in the eyes. 'You know I'm the scared to get my hands dirtt.And yes if she lying deal.'Kid look behind TJ and made eye contact with Iris as he said the last part and extended his hand to shake TJ's solidifying the plan.

Iris thought her plan had been solid, but it seemed by the way TJ talked about it that this raid would split their forces, this was surprising as Iris thought there were just the three of them,with this information it made her instincts to survive using any means necessary burn stronger, she couldn't just let this slip through her fingers.But right after he rejected the plan he walked over to the canyon edge and spreaded his arm dramatically before speaking, "We have an army right here that can be clearing them bitches out of Marble Canyon in 15 hours or so, if we knew any crazy fuckers with noise making bombs to coax them in the right direction and were tired of eating goddamned coyotes. I don't know about you but I'll eat a fuckin' baby before I eat another coyote... Comin' up the canyon and right through their asses with thousands of hungry fuckfaces behind us sounds like fun."
Iris looked at him with a look that made her disposition of how she thought TJ was insane quite clear, what was even more crazy was that tony who was sensible after hearing TJ mention bombs became totally on board with it, Iris started to lightly sweat as she though she just entered the nut house, she wasn't that all surprise when kid agreed to it, from her viewpoint he was a follower not a leader. What became even more shocking is TJ proclaim that if she was leading them into a trap, Iris would be next on the menu, despite the absolute crazy insane plan there was doubt that they could actually do it, Iris suddenly let out a long sigh as her head pointed up to the sky too look at the clouds.
After a few seconds she then looked back at the trio and said, "Fine if you want to do this horse shit crazy plan, take me with you. With your plan it sounds like you have a very limited time window to gather what you need before the walkers overrun the camp after you lead them there, i can save you every second you would have wasted searching for the weapons,food and other stuff they gathered. Earlier, you put your trust in me so now im putting my trust in you. Ah, but if you try to eat me your just get sick, so how about we have a meal instead?"
Iris then stood up and walked to her truck, she then climbed into the front chair without fully getting in, as she opened the secret spot in her truck she pulled out two ex.large can of bake beans, a large can of meat, and a XLL jug of water one by one until they were all out, "If were going to do this, we need to be on our game and not thinking about hunger, so put the damn guns down and eat." Iris personality had somewhat switched from hardcore survival too a elderly sister type attitude, of course she was still planning to stick with them because there useful but keeping them alive was all part of the package.

TJ watched Iris bend over in the truck and slightly bit his bottom lip, his face betraying naughty perverted thoughts racing in his head. He couldn't help it. Iris was attractive, and she probably knew it. TJ shot a locker room grin at Kid and Tony.
TJ took the can of beans from Iris and said, "Let me show you a trick."
TJ scraped the top of the can back and forth on a rock, grinding down the crimp until the seal popped and he took the top off the can. "Ta-da! Nature's can opener."
TJ handed the can back to Iris, and when their eyes met, he winked, betraying a flirt.
Turning back to the topic of leading an army of the dead on a 30 mile march, TJ said "I think the hardest part of the plan is getting those stankers to follow us up a hiking trail out of the canyon. They are too stupid to find their way up on thier own, and they suck at climbing. We may have to help them."

Kid watch in disgust at TJ pathetic attempt at flirting with Iris.'I've lost my appetite' Kid said stubbornly before adding in an under tone 'I'd rather have the coyote I found' Kid notice the hopeful look on Vegemite face 'Can give my share to V' Kid started walking to his bike 'why you have picnic I'm actually going to get to work' and with that Kid kicked his bike into life. Kid winced slightly from Iris injuries as he put his hand on the handle bars and swing his leg over but he'd written more banged up than this. Vegemite made to follow him 'Stay' Kid ordered
'I'll contact you on the radio once found a pathway down to them ' he reeveed the bike few times and took of looking for an easy bike path down to the Walkers.

The behaviors of TJ and Billy were more than enough to give Anthony a headache, TJ's attempt at flirting made Anthony roll his eyes, and Billy's incessant attempts to save his bruised ego made him let out an exasperated groan. "Oh suck it up Kid, you got your ass kicked, big deal." He said exasperated before hearing Billy say he was going to find a path to the walkers. "Alright Kid, just be careful, I actually like having you around." Anthony said sincerely before sitting on the edge of the trunk of Iris's truck and looked through his notebook to get an idea on the requirements for the future raid mumbling calculations to himself while still listening to Iris and TJ

"That guy," TJ said, chuckling and nodding at Kid as he drove off in a huff, "really hates us."
Picking on Kid was an insiders-only sport. If anyone else dug in on Kid besides Tony, TJ would beat their ass and had done so before. TJ was loyal to his partners and he trusted they were loyal to him.
TJ keyed his radio and said, "Shifty."
"Yeah, boss?" came back the reply.
"We're staying behind. Tow back the best RV you can get running to Flagstaff. In about 2 hours this place is gonna be DooDoo Central. Tell the others to wrap up foraging and we'll catch back up with you all in two days. You're in charge until we get back."
Turning to Iris, TJ asked, "Anything wrong with your truck?"
