“HEY!” I call out to them as I get closer, “HELLO! I'M A FRIENDLY! PEACE IN THE WASTELAND!”
I don't want them getting scared, sometimes being so direct can scare them away. It's not safe out here.. Not just because the Dracs but also because of the terrible people who want to hurt others. Just because we try to live peacefully out here doesn't mean that everyone does. Some will take advantage of the anarchy and do some really cruel things.
I approach the startled, cowering family. A small golden hair girl clings to her younger brother while his large green eyes watch curiously.
