“Wait!” Charlotte said.
“This is all happening so fast! I had planned on relaxing and enjoying my three day weekend, but now my home is surrounded by Sentries and you want to-”
“Shhh.” Jack raised his index finger to his lips. He picked up the notebook and the pen and started writing another note.
Charlotte leaned forward so that she was able to read each word as it was scrawled upon the page. His handwriting has not changed at all. She thought.
We are going to attempt to reach the place you mentioned – At least for a day or two – To regroup and figure out what we are going to do next.
I need you to quickly pack a few supplies – Food, clothing – Whatever you think we will need. We will come back for more stuff when we can.
Did you throw out all of my clothes? Do you have any weapons other than the knife? Oh, and don’t worry about the Sentries- I’m going down there to eliminate them before we load the car.
I have to change out of these clothes first and foremost. It won’t take long to gather a few supplies – That is not a problem.
But I cannot guarantee that we will be able to reach the destination – It’s a long drive, and it will be another miracle if we can travel that far without being stopped.
I do still have a few articles of your clothing in a box that I held onto for sentimental reasons. And no, unfortunately, I do not have any weapons that I can think of – Even the knife is technically illegal.
How exactly do you plan on fighting those things? It is a suicide mission – I am not going to watch those machines rip you to shreds right after you have been returned to me!
