I really don’t like this guy.
Whoever this Gray guy thinks he is, he’s a jerk. All he’s done is boss me around. First it was pick up Saul’s body. Then he had me take these “pills” that looked like candy and came out of a bottle with a label made of yellow tape. To make everything worse, this idiot had us walking in circles around the desert (with Saul Fore still gasping for breath the whole time) because apparently there are still “hot zones” whatever that means. Guy is out of his mind.
After a few hours of walking a serpentine path through the desert, we finally show up at a concrete wall maybe…20 feet high? In front of us was a thick steel gate with a tribal looking eagle engraved on it. On top of the wall were two guards dressed up real sleek in black armor and rust red shirt and pants. Both of them were armed to the teeth, but Gray talked to them like old friends. After a few minutes, the gate opened up and Gray hauled Saul Fore onto his shoulder like a sack of flour. Dude is surprisingly strong.
So the great James Gray left me in front of this fortress. I was alone. All I had left was a lousy pistol Saul had given me. The guards closed the gate, leaving me out in the cold (so to speak, it was actually over 100 degrees). One of them told me to get lost. The other one pointed me in the right direction, saying that Abundance’s main street was connected to the fortress’ western wall. Giving the soldier a nod, I set off again. Abundance may be just around the corner, but I have no idea what I’m going to do when I get there.
At any rate, I hope I never have to deal with James Gray again.
