A Good Soldier: RV’ing (Ch. 39)

Before leaving, we decided to go to the other RV and give it a good search for more supplies and possibly weapons. We also wanted to make sure the couples were truly dead even though they hadn’t revived when we checked the first time and hadn’t heard any noise from there. I was going to…

A Good Soldier: Morning Haze (Ch. 38)

Parker and I stayed outside for an hour or so more before heading into the RV and spreading out on the floor, too tired to care where we lay our heads. The kids and ladies were in the back room and Cal had taken over the bench bed. It didn’t matter. I was content to…

A Good Soldier: Glamping (Ch. 35)

  Cal told Marco it was time to go. I thought the kid was going to stay put but he climbed over the seats out of the car and took Cal’s hand. Marco looked sullen and there were dark circles under his eyes that didn’t belong there. I let it go and started walking, taking…
