"What the f-" Ruth was silenced as the boy pulled them both behind a tree. He looked Ruth straight in the eyes and whispered "Stay quiet and I'll see what it is, by the way my name's Dante"
"Ruth" She whispered back, not breaking the gaze.
"That's a nice name, now don't move" The steely gaze was broken as he cautiously called out.
"Who's there?" He risked a glance around the side as an arrow narrowly missed his shoulder. "Whoa ok, we don't want to hurt you" He walked to the front and put his hands out to show he wasn't armed.
A girl lowered her bow and scowled at them "Who are you? Everyone's dead. I checked."
Dante sighed "There's survivors still, but I don't know how many." Ruth poked her head around the side of the tree and straightened up, daring to step out into full view.
"I thought I told you to stay hidden" He hissed at her,
"Sorry I was curious" She scowled back.
"Who's that" The girl lazily pointed at Ruth, "Your girlfriend" She smirked, relishing watching Ruth slowly go red.
"No" He said coldly, "She's my friend" The girl walked towards them and they both took a step back "Not gonna hurt ya" She said lifting up a hand, "The name's Emma."
