Daisy was increasingly heavy with no sign of slowing down. Exiting the Staters, David inhales the scene, a dozen bodies spread across the parking lot. Gummy bears own the Staters parking lot. Two new jeeps occupy the lot, engines still humming, and colorless. Half the outlaws are breathing and half lie still. Bringing Daisy to the outlaws jeep,
“Lauren! Let’s go!” No response. The parking lot was absent of sounds except for the jeeps. “Lauren?” The nest was empty. The ice chest was absent, no Ramon either. The sound of impending trucks speeding to the lot. Daisy laying unconscious in the passenger seat. David had to make a choice. David speeds off in the jeep getting Daisy back to the camp.
David looked through each street, looking for a sign of Lauren. I can’t show up without her. Luke will kill me. The camp was up ahead and David throttles forward. A pink lawn chair rested in front of the camp, Laurens chair. David placed Daisy carefully, placing the key in his pocket. David holds the key to the sun. Heading back to the jeep and heads back toward Stater Bros.
