You Can't Run And You Can't Hide
The trip to Nephi's apartment could only be described as "surreal": the roads were either completely empty or filled with abandoned cars. The group was forced to take multiple detours, and occasionally to leave their vehicles to clear an improptu roadblock.

Throughout the trip, Monica and Allan remained very quiet.

The elephant in the room, of course, was that all the zombies that they were not meeting had to be somewhere else, and that was probably with Xynthia. Knocking at the door (or, more correctly, trying to knock down the door) behind which Hector had helped Eddie carry the wounded.


It was late at night by the time the group finally reached Nephi's apartment...

Re: You Can't Run And You Can't Hide
Nephi's apartment is rather small, consisting of 1 bedroom, and a small kitchen, dining/living room and bathroom.  As Nephi tends to put off the housework, it's also quite dirty, with a couple days worth of dishes stacked on the bench, carpets in dire need of a good vacuuming, and dust accumulating on the shelves.  On the walls pictures of church leaders, temples and Christ are contrasted by posters of various anime and several fantasy scenes.

As he unlocked and opened the door, Nephi sheepishly said "Uh, come in everyone.  Sorry about the mess."

Following Nephi, his car keys still on hand, Karen listens to him apologize for the mess as her eyes scan the room taking in the posters and pictures alike. "No trouble Nephi." 'Oh my god, I'm in Nephi's house.' Was the first thought that came to Karen's mind as she looked back at the others. 'But not alone...' Suddenly dissapointed Karen followed Nephi as he went around his house.

Allan got out of the Unicat and watched as the others made their way to Nephi's building. "We should get back on the road as soon as possible. Get what you need as quickly as you can." He did not immediately follow the others in. He walked around the large vehicle, checking for damage, and made sure that the motorcycle on the back carrier was still secure.

Nephi looked thoughtful for a moment and glanced at his hand before he spoke.  "I'm going to my room to get this taken care of and start packing.  You guys might want to grab whatever supplies I have, and take the opportunity to use the facilities.  Never know when you'll have another chance."

Monica followed the others into Nephi's apartment. She had spent most of the trip laying down in the back of the Unicat, and still appeared to be a bit pale. "Canned goods, toilet paper, and first aid stuff," she said to her friend, Jane. "I'm gonna see what this kid has in the way of tools and household chemicals." Her voice was flat and business-like. Monica was keeping all of her emotions tightly locked up, at least for now.

"We'll need bags to carry what we can find." Karen adds in, "Garbage bags, backpacks, pillow cases or anything else you can scrounge up." She says, glancing in the direction Nephi went knowing he'd be ok, but wishing she could help. "I'll go see if Nephi has some backpacks or bags we can use." She says before following after the young man.

Walking up behind him Karen looks over his shoulder and asks, "Can I help?"

"Boxes would be good, too," Monica called out to Karen, and then she started searching under Nephi's sink.

Naphi paused in his preparations at Karen's question.  "Uh, no.  Not really.  Thanks for offering though.  I'm just going to ask the Lord to Heal the hand, then pack up a bunch of clothes and stuff."  He looks a little embarressed.

OOC: By the way, what's the current game time?

"Ok... then do you have any bags or boxes we can use?" Karen asks, sounding a little disappointed that she couldn't help Nephi.
