Warm Bodies: A New Life Chapter 8Warm Bodies: A New Life Chapter 8
A few days went by and things cooled off between Kevin and R as they became friends again, a small feeling of normalcy returned to the city as more people arrived back, they checked in at the medical tents to be checked over and then were able to return to their homes, if their homes were burnt down or destroyed then they were able to live in a house or apartment until their homes were repaired.
Julie and R went back to work after enjoying a few days off, R was placed at the entrance of the front ‘gate’ alone with Randy who was a more experienced guard, Randy was the one of the guards that helped R after Kevin almost killed him last week. Randy was on guard duty from day one of the outbreak, he had seen his share of bad things and he was happy to see the city come back to life from all the tragedy and heart break it suffered for the past six years.
“So, R how are things going for you and Julie?” Randy asked that afternoon.
SolaceShe never slept well in the dark,
not without the children of the sun and moon
to guide her weary lids home.
Guided by the aftermath, she was always two steps behind.
What did the world look like to the girl who had been through it all?
Braved the heaviest of storms,
yet skipping over cracks in the pavement.
They said her eyes were the wisps of clouds before the storm.
To him they were reflections of pages overlooked.
She said it was like she lived the life of someone she had never met.
Laid out to dry, yesterdays news.
He knew her as the girl who was built to never collapse.
He wished he was too.
He loved her more than words could say, and yet her pain was such,
that at times, he feared she wouldn’t make it.
But on nights like these, even when it threatened to consume her,
he became convinced that somehow she would.
Keep in Touch!
