“You’re sure your sisters ok?”
Piper forced a smile at the older woman with the kids, and nodded. “Yeah I over reacted.” Truth was she didn’t know if Mica was ok or not. It had been several hours since they had saved Sofia and her family. Finding the woman’s husband and brother-in-law tied up in the stores office. She had yet to learn the families whole story but at the moment didn’t care. Her mind was whirling with the possibility that Ava had a cure to this horrible epidemic.
Sofia spoke catching her attention again, “one of the men who brought us here was bitten. He became sick within an hour, died and came back in under three. His friends tried to lock him in the freezer not wanting to kill him and it didn’t work out so well. Overnight they had all changed and came after us. I’m just saying…”
“I get it.” Piper snapped, getting to her feet. “I’m going to check on my friends.” Stalking away, Piper felt bad she knew the older woman was just trying to help but if her calculations were right Mica should’ve changed already. Climbing up into the bus, Piper walked over and sat down across from Mica and Ava. She studied Mica for a moment, her sister looked fine. She wasn’t sick and didn’t have any possible symptoms of the virus. In a low voice Piper said, “talk to me Ava. What’s your story?"
