The heavily armed men walked around the car, Razor and Cynthia under the car holding a single finger to his mouth, letting Cynthia know that they need to keep quiet. Several minutes went by before Razor let out a sigh of relief.
After climbing out from under the car, Razor and Cynthia made their way to the Supermarket keeping low and making good time The climbed into the hole in the side of the building and headed to the survival section of the supermarket. when they got there all they were met with was empty shelves, everywhere they looked.
"So that's what they had." Razor muttered angrily. "They took all of the water purification pills." Razor hit one of the shelves, but while he was throwing a tantrum, Cynthia was looking around the floor of the shelves.
"Razor..." Cynthia began, but Razor shushed her.
Razor turned around to say what. But stopped, "Where'd you find that?"
Cynthia looking proud of herself holding a water purifier pill, "Under the shelf, but I need some help getting the rest of them."
As they were reaching under the shelves and pulling the last two out, they ended up finding five packs. They failed to notice that somebody was walking up the aisle that they were lying on their stomachs in. Until Razor felt somebody's foot on his back.
"Cynthia why are you...." But he was cut off by a deep voice.
"Young Lady if you don't want your friend here getting hurt, I'd suggest you hand over those tablets that you have in your hands there along with any other..." The man stepping on Razor's back lifting the front of his foot, causing the heel of his shoe to dig into the small of Razor's back.
But Razor gritting his teeth spoke to Cynthia, "Run, get out of here." He yelled his voice filled with pain.
Cynthia felt conflicted, her brother was being pinned to the floor by this stranger, who had a small firearm in his right hand. Cynthia was afraid that her brother would be hurt or worse and that she'd be ;eft all alone, but she knew that her brother was right.
So after grabbing a hold of the small bottle of bug spray she kept in her pocket, she sprayed some in the man's face and began running, the tablets held tightly in her fist, she heard the man shouting after her, but she ignored that. All she knew was that she had abandoned her brother to whatever fate awaited him and she felt incredibly guilty over that.
When she got to the outside, she stopped and tried to catch her breath and when she looked behind her, she didn't see the man following after her, but she knew she needed to get to safety, to get back to the shelter that was their home. And "Razor will find a way home." She said to herself truly believing that.
But she didn't get far from the Supermarket before she heard a *Pop* sound coming from behind her.
Oh no True Believers! What could that *Pop* sound mean? Will Razor make it? Find out in the Next Update!
