Trip Up North
I am currently writing this in the kitchen of the camp I'm in resting my leg. Since I last wrote not a lot happened except perhaps my recent trip up north which is the reason I am currently trying to not injure my leg further.
Couple days ago I was rifling through my radio trying to see if anyone else was out there who needed help. I encountered a distress call from a young girl as a police officer I believed it my duty to help this child. But I had also personnel reasons with the recent loss of my baby and those two kids who died beside me I could not allow another child to be put in harms way. I gathered up a group of people who were willing to help me find this girl and just before we started our trip I lost radio contact with her. It was decided not to endanger everyone without some form of contact so with a heavy heart I agreed.
The next day I managed to get in contact with her I knew it was a race of time with some unsavory people looking for her, I gathered my supplies and headed out on my own. I know I should never have left without some form of backup but I just did not have the time to rally a group up. I made the long and dangerous trip up north only stopping when I needed too. One such moment when I needed to rest for some water was perhaps the worst idea I ever had. I suddenly heard howling very close to where I was. I was nowhere near any shelter I ran for my life and the wolves caught up very quickly in the distance I could see a small town and hightailed to it as fast as I could but just as I got to the door one got me right on the leg. To get it off I had to use my unsilenced gun. It quickly released and I scrambled inside. All the infected came running towards the sound but then what I saw after was very interesting the wolves and the infected started fighting amongst themselves. My leg was painful but I could not stay. I forced myself to run whilst the infected and the wolves were distracted.
I was right in where I believed the little girl to be a red cross medic named Wyatt had just found her I was happy she was safe and unharmed. With my body relaxing and knowing I had finished what I had set out to do the pain in my leg got worse I had no choice I needed help explained that I would need to see a doctor at the UN that's when Wyatt explained he was one. He patched me up so I would make my way back South slowly. I explained to both Wyatt and Dolores that I had a camp that was safe with food and supplies and they were both welcome to come and they agreed.
When we got there I showed them around and Dolores started coming out of her shell a bit more. Wyatt though needed some comfort he believes his family is dead, I of all people know what that is like he is not alone. We had a fight about wither we should teach Dolores to shot he was against it. But what happens if he dies and I die and she is left with no way to defend herself I understand why he doesn't like it but it's dangerous out there she needs to learn how to survive. In the end he agreed, he wanted to do it himself but I said we would do it together.
So that is why I am currently resting I go out but never to far usually the surrounding area think today I am going to travel a bit further my leg feels better think as long as I don't go overboard I will be fine.
