Jamie spent a lot of time on his own since his friends left. He’d spend most of his time confiding only in himself, since he had a problem talking to people. Most people he came across thought he was an asshole and tried to kill him. He’d spend most of his time down south, avoiding contact when possible.
He then came across some freaks, one in particular called Brady. He spent some time with them before he realized he was slowly losing his mind being with cannibalistic freaks. He was alone.
One sunny morning, he ventured into Pavlovo in search of food. He came across two ladies, one being shady as hell and the other being very welcoming.
“Fuck it, I’ll see if I can chat them up...”
They were very inviting. They gave me some food and made Jamie feel a sense of ease. They introduced themselves as Thea and Ida. Thea was quiet and reserved. She hardly said two words to me and remained mysterious. Ida on the other hand though was different indeed. She sometimes mumbled some stuff and carried the most bizarre things with her. But oddly, I felt like I fit in.
We went for a walk for a while and decided to set up a little fire on the outskirts of town.
Whilst digging into a can of spaghetti, I noticed that one of them was missing. My eyebrow perked up and I saw Ida staring at me with a certain grin on her face. Along with that, I felt the barrel of a suppressor touch the back of my beanie. I knew I’d fucked up.
“You know the drill, I’m sure. Drop it.”
I slowly release my hand off my pistol and begin to take off the essentials. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t slightly pissed off. It’s usually me on the other side, and I fell for my own tricks. They pulled me up and tied me around a tree with some coarse rope.
I felt some slight envy towards them. It’s clear that they knew what they were doing, and I was jealous of that. I think they could tell with the look on my eyes. The thing that I didn’t realize is, this actually sparked a beautiful friendship.
The next day, I came across the two figures again. I felt no anger or hatred towards them, and they actually invited me along. This is when I knew that the three of us had a lot in common. We decided to keep in touch, and learn more about each other.
We spend most of the time now searching for people with similar characteristics as us. People who do not fit in with the normal bunch of people.
