Lavi nods in agreement and they go to the door. Lavi is the one to crack it open and peer out slowly, looking back and forth. The screams and gunshots are definitely closer—maybe two streets down?—but they have yet to reach this place just yet although that might change in the next few seconds.
Turning and waving a hand as the door is opened further, Lavi says, “
Alright let's go.”
The three come out of the doorway and Bookman closes it, making sure to lock it just in case they ever do get the chance to come back and the lock actually means something and leaves the inner contents alone without being touched. They start by going to the left and down the street. Lavi peeks around a corner of the building at the corner of the block. He spots an Infected lumbering by but limping after someone crawling along the ground—thankfully no one he knows so Lavi pays no mind, as cruel as it is.
Come on,” he whispers as they cross the street as quickly as they can to get to the other side.
Precautions like these are taken throughout that might make it five minutes longer to get near Timothy’s and Emilia’s house, but they get there without running into big trouble nonetheless. Lavi, Allen, and Bookman go up to the porch of the somewhat small house only to see a note hanging on the front.
Left the house
Going to the safe haven 2 towns to the west
Hope to see you there
~Emilia and Timothy
Shit they're already gone,” Lavi mutters. Really… there’s nothing they can do but move on since the two are no longer there. Maybe they’ll meet them at the wall since they’re also planning on leaving. Lavi turns to the other two and says, “
Alright, on to Allen's house.”
Allen was glad to be moving again, only having to wait for Lavi to give the all-clear before they were off. He heard Lavi indicate to follow, but faltered slightly as he saw the Infected going after someone. It didn’t feel entirely right to just… not do anything. He didn’t get the chance though when Bookman gave his shoulders a push, just enough to get him going at Lavi’s heels again.
He didn’t like it, but he followed, more concerned about his immediate friends. When they found Emilia’s place, he wasn’t sure whether to be releived or disappointed that they were already gone. Hopefully they were safe and hadn’t hit any trouble.
When Lavi indicated his place was next, he nodded, eager to get there and retrieve both Tim and his weapons. Maybe then he could actually do something, instead of merely slinking around. It didn’t take long to reach it, the shadows being quite useful to keep them concealed, and the Infected didn’t seem to have reached his place yet. How long that would last though, he wasn’t sure.
He unlocked his apartment and all but flung the door open, glancing around.
"Tim?" His voice was immediately greeted with shrill chirping, the bird flying to land on his head. He smiled and pet the bird with two fingers, even as he moved to retrieve his things. He had to do this quickly.
"Just keep an eye and an ear out for trouble. I’ll be done in a moment," he tossed over his shoulder as he moved to sit on his bed, yanking out the drawer of his bedside table and retrieving his weapons from them.
