5. Reunion

The mysterious girl breathed heavily, reloaded the gun, and shot the zombies again.  She had short black hair and dark brown eyes.  By the looks of it, she was Filipino.

"Always double-tap." she said and tossed me something black. 

"M4 assault rifle. Don't ask where I got it." her voice was scratchy, but somewhat familiar.  Suddenly, someone coughed from behind me and I turned to see who it was.  A tall, burly African American man stood above the body of the little girl.  He was holding a katana smeared with blood.

"Where'd you get-"

"Don't ask." he interrupted and crossed the room to go into the kitchen.

I looked over at the girl and noticed that she had settled herself on my couch.

"How did you get in here?"

"Your door was broken down."

"Who are you?"

"Charlotte Greene."

"Who is that guy?"

"My brother, Kristian. I know that we look nothing alike, but it's because...-" her voice dropped down to a whisper and she leaned in.

"-he was adopted. He doesn't like to talk about it, so don't say anything."

I nodded in understanding before something clicked in my head. I jumped up and pointed at her face.


She gave me a confused look before it started to sink in. 


"Yup." Her eyes widened and she squealed like a little girl. 

"I thought you moved to San Francisco in fifth grade!"

"I did, but then my dad got called in to go to Philadelphia for a job.  So we all went with him and stayed there for a couple of years.  A week ago, the hospital here in Chicago called us saying that my grandma got a heart attack, so we all came to visit.  But when we-"

"-I hate to interrupt your little reunion, but I think we should get going." A deep voice said, coming from the doorway.  I looked up and saw that he was helping up June, who apparently fainted.  Charlotte got up and stared at Kristian with puppy dog eyes.  He glared at her before he realized what she wants. 

"Whoa, whoa, whoa.  NO."

"Please?  They don't have any weapons or food!  Alex has been my friend since forever!!"

I step in at this point. "You went through our pantry and fridge?" 

Charlotte holds a hand up to me. "Stay out of this, Alexis Datura Grayson." How the heck did she remember my middle name?

"Please?  I'll do anything!"

Her brother raised an eyebrow.

"Fine!  I'll do the driving nightshift." 

"It's a deal."

June and I began coughing uncontrollably to get their attention.


"I'm confused.  What deal?"

"Wanna come with us?"
