Post-Apocalypse Ch. 5

Sorry If This One Sucks A Bit....I'm Just Really Lazy And My Head Is Kinda Malfunctioning Right Now x] I Just Needed Something To Do Today So Here It Is.......
********************************************************************************************************************************************************
After About An Hour Of Running, And Another Hour Of Fist Fighting, We Finally Made It Out. Our Newest Destination Wasn't As......Pleasant As Before. It Was An Abandoned Hut We Found Along The Way. It Was Pretty Big.... Big Enough For All Five Of Us To Fit In Without Getting In Each Other's Way. But... Of Course It Would've Been Nice If It Was Just A Tad Bit Bigger. So Anyways, It Was Only One Big Room, So Our Meeting Quarters Had To Clash Into Our Sleeping Quarters. So We Sat In Our Circle, The Usual Arrangement. Me Nest To Poison, Poison Next To Kobra, Kobra Next To Jet, And Jet Next To Ghoul. There Wasn't Neccasarily That Intensity Hanging In The Air.....It Was More Of A Now-What? Type Of Thing. But Of Course Nobody Spoke. But Surprisingly Kobra Was The First One To Speak. You Know, The Kid Was Surprising More And More. HE Used To Be So Shy And Quiet And Was So Akward When He Talked. But He's Definatley Broken Through That Shell.
"What Do We Have Left To Do Poison?"
"I-" He Started. "I Don't Know. I Mean.....Is This Really Worth Fighting For?" His Voice Was Very Soft. He Sounded Like He Was Ready To Give Up. Which Wasn't Going To Happen. Especially On My Watch.
"You're Not Planning On Giving Up Are You?"
He Looked At Me With Those Amazing Eyes Of His. Once Full Of Energy And Excitement, His Eyes Now Looked Old And Tired. His Once Brilliantly Red Hair Had More Of Fade To It Now. The Boy Sitting Next To Me, Once Ready To Take On Any Challenge, Now Sounded Like He Was Ready To Surrender. No. Not Happening.
"Ray, We Can't Keep This Up Forever."
"That Doesn't Mean We Have To Stop Now." I Said With A Pleading Look. I Could See My Reflection In Poison's Eyes. Who Was That Girl Looking Back? That Certainly Wasn't Me, It Couldn't Be. Because Me Wouldn't Have Ever Went Against Poison's Word, Or Would Have Ever Spoke Out Against What's Best For The Group.
"She's Right." Jet Said. Everybody Looked At Him. He Spoke Again.
"We Can't Give Up. Not Now."
Poison Took A Deep Breath. "If We're Going To Do This.....Then We Have Some Serious Planning To Do."
My Face Automatically Lit Up. He Looked At Me And Smiled. I Threw My Arms Around Him And Gave Him A Kiss. I Heard A Gasp From Everyone Looking At Us. I Released Poison To Look At Everyone's Faces. Jet And Kobra Were Smiling. Ghoul Looked Heart Broken.
"You- Your With Him?" He Looked Close To Tears.
I Looked At Poison, Hoping I Wasen't Right. He Just Nodded Sadly And Softly. Crap I Thought.
"Ghoul-" He Cut Me Off.
"No. This Isn't Happening. I Am So Done With This." And With That He Ran Out Of Our Small Shack.
"Ghoul Wait!" I Yelled After Him. I Took Off Running Right Behind Him. For Us Killjoys, Being Out Late At Night Un-Armed Was Basically Asking For Death. But Right Now That Didn't Matter. I Had To Go Find Ghoul. I Had To Bring Him Back.

So That Was Chapter 5. The Next One Will Probably Be Pretty Short. It's Just Gunna Be About Their Conversation About What Happens. Nothing Important Really Will Happen. So You Could Skip Chapter 6 If You Want. It's Not Really Important To The Story Line....
