“There are no heroes…in life, the monsters win.”

Go to the mainland, she said.  It will be fun, she said.

Fun my ASS!!

Ya, we got a nice haul, enough to make Blackbeard proud.  But was it worth it?  Sure as hell was! We didn’t score a chest full of gold and gems, but what we brought back was enough to stock the ATC for a few weeks at least.  We are still missing a few items certain folks asked for specifically, but once we cut into a few of them boxes I bet we discover a trove of things we can sell or trade with the locals.

Like the good little klutz I am, I managed to bang up my left knee pretty bad, had to actually limp for my life in the end, thanks to hero-boy running head on into a hoard of biters wielding only a hand gun. His plan worked, cut a path for us to the boat, but he could have gotten us all fucking killed. Clocked him a good one square in the jaw for that little stunt.

Guess I should forgive him, he managed to score a CD player and I can’t remember the last time I heard such good music.  Got boss lady a pretty cool hat too! All in all, I would say it was a great run but next time I think we need to avoid the high rises and keep an escape route handy. That fucking alarm going off was something we had not prepared for and could have been the end of all of us.

I doubt I will get much sleep tonight, this knee is throbbing and I don’t have anything to help with pain other than this last shot of moonshine. Cheers!
