He kept Kaiser’s leash wrapped around his hand, even though he knew that if he let go, Kaiser would stay right by his side unless told to leave. They moved quickly, not wanting to linger. Keaton didn’t like the way his neck tingled as though someone was watching him. He wouldn’t have been shocked if there was someone eyeing them as they moved through. While most of the survivors would have gone to refugee camps where they could get help and some kind of shelter, there were some who’d refuse to leave their homes, no matter how destroyed they were.

Kaiser’s been indicating there might be something here. ” Nodin frowned. He pursed his lips. “I know, but it’s not going to be soon enough. ” Nodin lifted his shoulder. “We can only do so much. ” “Let’s go. ” Nodin kept a hold of Keaton’s elbow as the three of them made their way off the pancaked building to where the others were waiting. They double-timed it back to the park, and Keaton did his best to keep up, no matter how bad his leg bothered him. Kaiser kept up without any problem. Sanchez was waiting for them at the tent and listened to what Keaton told him about the crevasse and that Kaiser had indicated there was something there.
