When We Run

Your life can change in a heartbeat.
I walked downstairs and when I came back, everyone was dead and everything was over. But I survived and I ran.


21. 21.

Holly's point of view.

"Holly, come back!" Evan shouts as he runs to catch up with me.

I'm not going to lie. I'm not going to say that I want to do this. I'm terrified, but what choice do I have? The two people left on this world that I love, are starving and we also need answers. I just have to take one for the team.

"You're being stupid." he says, catching up with me, holding onto my arm. "You're just trying to be brave and honourable-"

"You think I'm doing this for my own ego?" I yank my arm away. "I'm doing this for you and Sam so just please let me do it and go and get the food and find some answers."

"If I thought you would be safe, I would let you do it." he says. "But I am telling you now, this is the worst idea you've ever had."

"I'm going to do it." I say. "And it's just going to be easier with your help."

He sighs, realising he's lost this argument. He kisses me, sadly and holds on to me.

"I can't bear the thought of this." he says.

"Please." I say. "Don't come and rescue me. Just let it happen. Get the food and try and get answers and go back to the car where Sam's waiting. I'll meet you there when it's all done."
