If you would like to establish your own Stronghold, please private message Remy with a name, city, state and brief description of your stronghold. If you have any questions about any of the stronghold's listed above, please mesesage the leaders. NEWS AND EVENTS:
As the newcomers entered the lobby, Seth closes the gate before joining them. Seeing the many faces iffy of these new found survivors, Seth could see different emotions pouring through the group. Some were scared of what may happen and others were glad these people got here when they did. Seth however, he took these people in, not caring what they do or how they got here. He keeps a good eye on these people. He has a sense to protect these people at all costs, but he also has a heart that allows anybody a chance to live under the same roof as him. He has yet to break down on this world. Running this hotel is what keeps him sane.
"This is Hampton, ran by Alexis and I. The name's Seth Corbin."
Alexis then steps in and introduces herself. "Alexis Green, nice to meet ya'll."
"Now i'm not going to interrogate you nor make you give up your weapons. Just please don't try anything stupid. The buffet over there has eggs, bacon, and sausage if you'd all like to sit down for breakfast. And then afterwards, Alexis here will hand you all a key to your own rooms."
Alexis surveys the group as she notices the weary looks on there faces. All but Phillip. He seemed rather confident and strong. Dicey seemed tense and Lydia was hiding behind the two. While Phillip held his son tight by his side. These people have gone this far and do not want to risk anything by keeping their guards down. Smart. She motioned for the newcomers to follow as she headed over to the buffet. "Come."

Dark brown eyes gazed at the sign on top of the nearest Hilton to te recreational vehical that the escaped in. Rocking the infant slowly in her protective arms as a small breeze waved loose strands of her raven hair. "Isabella you should of stopped when we yelled stopped." The older is panic women said wit a hint of irritation in the air. "I was scared." The teen mumbled through her teeth avoiding the gaze from Sisa as her head turned to her. "I'm scared too. What if the others didn't make it? What if the doctor can't find us because a teenage girl was scared hm?" Sighing frustratedly knowing that it was wrong of her to blame the teenager. Gently placing her daughter Koya into Bella's hands as she pressed a tan finger to her own lips. "Keep her safe until I am back up ok?" Sisa said as her boots were already going down the ladder in the back of the vehical. Taking a deep breath as her shoe hit the pavement and the grip on her knife tightened. Exhaling the air stored in her after the momentary lack of breathing. The scent of death or a decaying corpse tickled her nose but as long as it was too close she didn't mind. Where the hell are they?

Dark eyes were looking at the seemingly never ending wrecked cars that looked to have caused many collisions exiting the city as the Porsche drove toward it. "They weren't at the meet up spot...." He mumbled worryingly to the driver next to him. Turning away from the side window to the ice ax in his lap with his white teeth biting on his lower lip. "What if they ran into bandits." The tan young man said as his eyes narrowed on a specific vehical ahead with a figure moving oddly alive inside it. Squeezed his left hand on Deans leg as his right hand pointed ahead hoping he had seen it as well.

"I have dreamed a dream...but now that dream has gone from me...." Joseph whispered as he rounded the bend on the dirt road leading away from the now-overrun farm, pausing to take one last glance in the rear-views before turning his focus back on rendezvousing with the others at the designated meet-up point.... Near Johnson City, Tn.,...
"Okay, where am I?" Joseph whispered as he stood on top of the medical RV, map in hand and binoculars' 'round his neck. Looking around, he tried to figure out his location, muttering a few choice words as he would look up and around, then look back down at his map....and vice versa, for several minutes. "Okay, okay, I think I got my bearings straight here," he said, folding the map up and placing it back in his shirt pocket. Climbing down from the top of the RV, he got back inside and started it up, pulling away from the interstate and turning in towards Johnson City, hoping to run into the rest of the farm's inhabitants as soon as possible...
Zack could feel the old mans stare. He'd felt it since he climbed into the RV with Sisa. The disdain the man had for Zack was very noticeable. Zack suspected the old man wished he'd been eaten by walkers. Alejandro probably would have to. Starting to grind his teeth at the thought of the man who'd threatened him earlier that day.
Hearing the mother of his child talk on the roof the archer took that as his Que to go outside. Making sure his bow was still ready he exited the vehicle out of the old mans mean glare. The stench of rotten flesh was thick. Readying an arrow he moved over to his lover. "Hey mocha flower. I can't tell if this is walker stink or Koya needs another diaper change." Zack flashed a smile to Sisa as he scanned around them.
"Seen any sign of the others?" Zack couldn't see another pair of headlights or any sign of the others car. Bandits, Walker, Crazies, Belibers the amount of bad things that could happen to you appeared once the outbreak started. Zack knew the others could handle themselves but that didn't stop the archer from worrying about his friends.

The road was long and the Group was scattered, but Dean was confident they all would find each other. Yes it worried him that they weren’t at the meet up spot, but he still had hope. “Relax babe, we’ll find them.” He said while smiling at Nick. Then he heard how Nick was worried they maybe ran into some bandits. “Well nobody was alone, I’m pretty sure they can handle it, but they are probably just further ahead, so no worries.” Dean said with a wink.
Dean felt how, Nick squeezed his upper leg, he knew his boyfriend was worried and needed some comforting. They gave some extra gas so they would pass the unknown vehicle a little faster. As he passed he looked inside, but it wasn’t anyone of their group. He kept driving at high speed until they were out of sight of the other vehicle, then Dean stopped the car, but left the engine on. He let go of the steering wheel and placed his hand on Nick his cheek. “We’ll find them I’m sure.” He said before softly kissing him. Then he let go and looked at the road again. It was then that he noticed the medical RV or at least something that looked identical. “Hey, look isn’t that one of ours?” he asked looking happy at Nick.

A smile didn't break the worried expression spread across the tan women's face as her love spoke. His words might of been funny when they weren't out in the open like bait for any low life that came by. "No but we can't stay here all day. I want to find them but we can't risk sitting out here as a lottery for any bandits." Sighing at the end of her statement as her head poked into the vehical only to see her father who smiled slightly at her before the usual disapproving gaze met her dark eyes. Turning slowly with a open mouth about to speak to her love when her reflection was shown from the blade held close at her face. Taking a deep breath as she examined the bandit while he figured out his words to say. His hands were shaking and he smelled like the walkers but obviously hadn't been eating like they were as the shirt he wore was baggy. The raven haired women doubted it was because he liked the extra feel sense anything hanging seemed like another thing for the undead to grab before eating out your stomach.
Raising her hands ands up slowly to reveal that their were no weapons in her hand at the moment. The question Zack asked didn't come with a answer from her. Thankfully it caught the attention of the already worried bandit long enough for her to upholster her gun and fire a bullet into the poor mans head. Sisa's head shook as she looked over him in a mix of sadness and disgust for what the man had gone to simply survive. "Zack and Isabella we are leaving now." She announced to the teen and Zack. Making sure the girl got inside the rv with Koya before before whispering toward the father of her child. "We can't stay longer. We don't know if there are more bandits are out there. We need to move into the city more so we are not completely exposed and to see if their are any places that can do for the night alright?" Brushing a black piece of her hair that had escaped from her bun. Patting the archer on the back while she couldn't keep her eyes completely off of the man that was now dead. Grabbing the door and shutting it behind them once all inside.

Shaking his head doubtfully as Dean tried to comfort his worrying mind "Dean... Stop lieing to me. You don't know if they are ok. Their are a million reasons why to worry Dean." Nick signed as his dark eyes looked out the window searching for any signs of their group in sight. Feeling less optimistic as the vehical that he assumed was one of theirs was empty.
Feeling the car slow down steadily as his hand remained on his loves leg. Groaning as he felt Deans hand on his cheek bring his eyes to look at his. A very faint smile formed but faded quickly after the kiss was over. "What if-" The ex bicycle carrier was cut off by his lovers suggestion. Looking down the road at the vehical that did seemed familiar. "It has to be the medical RV Joseph and Sabita got in" Nudging Dean to pressed the gas as he had a refilled hope that they were not the only survivors.

Pulling up to a deserted intersection, Joseph got out and once more, climbed up on top of the medical RV to get a feel for the area. Taking out his map of the region, he quickly scanned it for a location....as he did so, he thought for a moment he'd heard another vehicle. Where is that...., he whispered, looking around before catching sight of a car approaching from a distance. Using his binos', he saw who it was after a bit and smiled. 'Bout time you boys showed up, he thought to himself, climbing down and getting back down on the asphalt. Grabbing a Red Cross flag he'd picked up months before on a supply run, he began waving it above his head, hoping that Dean & Nick would recognize it. C'mon, boys, he whispered, your friendly doctor's over here....
Zack stared at the man who had covered himself in walker guts. Hearing the mother of his child tell him that they needed to leave he didn't question her. With a nod he returned back inside the RV. Placing his bow and quiver on the floor beside the drivers seat the archer got behind the wheel. Looking back to make sure everyone was inside Zack started the RV and drove them deeper into the city.
Maneuvering the vehicle through abandoned made the New Yorker want to start throwing out insults at drivers that weren't there. He bit his tongue not wanting to help instigate the hatred the grandfather of Koya already harbored toward Zack. Finding an intersection with a sign on it pointing to a hotel called The Hampton. A hotel would be a good place to rest for the night. Turning right he pointed the RV in the direction of the Hampton.
Phil came into the old lobby of the hotel that seemed a little dark inside despite the fact the sun was up outside. It was cooler in there though and as he looked around, he hooked a finger into the belt loop of his jeans. He couldn't help but laugh as Lydia spoke about not doing laundry.
Then the smell of food hit him. It was a buffet and it had more food then he had seen in months.
"Thanks man. We won't give you any trouble." He motioned for the girls to go help themselves and he was going to be right behind them.
"Thanks for the hospitality. We've been on our own for a while so it's nice to have a hot meal." He followed behind them, grabbing a plate and loading up without taking too much. He hoped it didn't look like he was pigging out, but he was pigging out.

Dean smiled as Nick nudge him, meaning he had to step on the gas. “Alright, alright.” He said with a smile. Then he pressed the gas and drive closer. As they got closer, they saw someone waving a red cross flag. “Pretty sure it’s him, I remember him showing it.” Dean said enthusiastic.
The Porsche made its way to the man and finally they stopped next to Joseph. Dean stopped the engine and quickly got out of the car. He then hugged Joseph. “I’m glad you’re safe.” He said before letting him go. “Any news from the others?” he asked worried.

Tan fingers were held in the small hands of her daughter Koya as her small lips moved. A small smile formed before the mother turned her head to look up in front of them at the Hampton that was coming closer. "I have never been in one before" She mumbled toward Zack as the vehical came to a stop. Waiting for Zack to exit first before her as she cradled the near five month old in arms.
The closed gate caught her eyes first before the sight of a few cars near did. "I think this ma-" The loud words for the teenager next to her cut her words short. "HEY IS ANYONE THERE." Holding her breath, Sisa tried not to get mad at her for the mistake. Turning slowly around to check for any signs of movement or walkers before turning completely back forward. Grasping the gates with her left hand to tug on it. Stareing at the hotel for any more entrances.

The Porsche made its way to the man and finally they stopped next to Joseph. Dean stopped the engine and quickly got out of the car. He then hugged Joseph. “I’m glad you’re safe.” He said before letting him go.
"Welcome to the club, brother," Joseph replied, returning the hug with equal fervor. "Thing is, we're still alive, you, me," pausing to give Nick a hug as well, "and Nick...."
“Any news from the others?” he asked worried.
Pausing to blow out a long breath, Joseph looked around a moment before answering. "I haven't run into any of the others quite yet, Dean. I know they're all ahead of us; Sisa and her group left the farm first, followed by you two, then Sabita and Mirek. I was the last to leave the farm, so they should be ahead of us. The rendezvous point was here," pulling out his map of the region and unfolding it, pointing to a spot on the map, "a Hampton Inn hotel in Johnson City. Let's head there, guys, and see if they made it."

Opening his door to get out as he glanced over at the two hugging. "Wow Dean didn't know you liked older men." Grinning as laughter escaped his lips as he opened his arms to hug Joseph as well.
Joseph began talking about the way people left in order. Listening with a nod until he ended with where they may be at. "Ok then let's get going." He turned to face the car looking over his shoulder at the two.
Zack shut the head lights off before they came into eye shot of the hotel. The sun had risen and pushed back the night for another day. Shutting off the engine of the RV he looked at Sisa as she quietly said she'd never been in a hotel. Zack smiled and let out a chuckle. He forgets not everyone was from a city like he was also forgetting Sisa wasn't from America.
"I stayed a few hotels. They're nice it's like a little home where you didn't have to worry about cleaning up after yourself. I think nowadays that rules changed." The Archer from long island replied to his Mocha Flower.
Grabbing his bow and quiver Zack exit the RV. Making sure nothing was moving towards them he focused his view on the hotel. Looking at Sisa as she spoke he nearly jumped out of his skin as the teenager yelled. Shaking his head at the teen he followed Sisa to the gate.
As Seth and Skylar attempt to create a plan on how to rid Johnson City of that hole of rotters they had found earlier that morning, a voice can be heard from the lobby "Seth!". Seth being close to her by now, can automatically tell that it's Alexis.
Seth gets up from his desk before entering the lobby to meet up with Alexis who's not the only one staring him down like a hawk. The rest who were still munching on breakfast were also concerned about something as Alexis begins to speak. "Newcomers. More of them. You sorta took over last time so i'll just let you take care of it."
With that, Seth nods his head as he walks across the lobby to the door leading to the front gate. There he can see a small group of people, almost looking like one big family except for the man with the bow. Seth greets them with a smile, again not allowing them the time to feel afraid of this mysterious establishment, he tries his best to assure them that it's the real deal. "Howdy! Welcome to Hampton! The name's Seth. You folks in need of food? Shelter? Or maybe relaxation? Sounds like a lame hook in line but you know, we're pretty easy going people. People. Not monsters."

Shauna and Sineads were pretty surprised by the amount of people they saw at the hotel. They had kept to themselves since leaving the military group a month ago do to the leaders immoral views. They knew staying on there own wasn't viable, there only hope was to trade there medical experience for been kept safe and with there fingers crossed they hoped this group wasn't run by a mad man.
For ten minutes Sineads and Shauna remained in there van to just scope the area out. Been careful was what had kept them alive.
" Well my dear sister are we going stay here all day or shall we enter?" Shauna said to Sinead as she took her own seatbelt off. Locking arms the two treaded with care into the hotel and were more than happy to be greeted with food.
The two never spoke a word, more concerned on what everyone else said around them. With luck it was all minor talk and nothing out there.
Sinead pulled Shauna towards the food and spoke, " When I'm Rome, let dine "
Shaua replied softly," Let's just say away from the red meat for safety, just in case. " they filled there plate identically to each others all the while still listening to the talk around them and still wondering if there was a higher motive to the friendliness. Been spectacle had been what kept people alive nowadays. When they finished picking there food they picked a table and went to it.
Looking at each other and than at Phillip the two spoke in sink," Do you mind if we sit ?. As they spoke the two sat in front of Phillip hoping they sat beside someone who wasn't a lunatic.

Sisa's dark almond eyes stared at the mans actions and judged his words as they were made. Turning her head slightly as the sound of a groan coming from her father tickled her right ear. "Monsters don't exist but evil does." Softly spoken as the noise of her child made the eyes leave the man called Seth and on girl in her arms. Allowing herself to think about what he was offering and if it was too sweet to be true. Considering if the risk of taking refuge else where was better then the oddly kind nature of the man. "Fine but not set in stone" the raven haired women's stare went over toward Zack for a moment hoping to get some opinion.
Glareing at Isabella as she blantently pushed the gates opened and hesitantly went toward the entry to the lobby. Shaking her head before nodding to it in case Zack followed or talked to the man. Taking a big gulp of air as Koya grasped a tan thumb connected to her mother. Raising her head up as the scent of food caught her nose. Quickly following behind the teen cautiously leading Sisa and Atah. "Pretend you don't speak English Tata.." She whispered to her father knowing he would not like being in a room full of yaraq siki's. Seeing the food that could be eaten was tempting to the tongue until her boyfriends explanation of what the cultist did had the mothers stomach think twice.

"Ok then let's get going." He turned to face the car looking over his shoulder at the two.
"Let's roll then. Follow me," Joseph said, trotting quickly back to the medical RV. Climbing inside, he sat down behind the wheel and fired up the RV, letting the engine run for a few moments before setting it into gear and continuing on into Johnson City and the rendezvous point.
