Jumping ahead a bit again this week. Our hero still refuses to tell her any thing, promising answers once they meet up with others at a safe house. We do learn that his name is Ripley but he’s not forthcoming with much else.
The morning they decide to begin their travels they get a surprise, and not the good kind…
Confused? Why not go to the beginning and see what you’ve missed so far!
I pop up and swing my feet to the side of the bed. As they hover just above the floor a horrible retching occurs in my stomach. The feeling is unfamiliar, and unpleasant. Before I can react to the feelings my body responds violently forcing puke out of my mouth and onto the floor. Ripley leaps to his feet and runs to the wash room. Grabbing the waste basket he shoves it in my hands just as another explosion of vomit expels from my mouth.
I will myself to stop to no avail, just when I think there is nothing left yellow bile raises to my throat and I cough as it stings the back of my nose. Ripley invades the sanctuary I created for myself and sits next to me on the bed, rubbing my back as I continue to dry heave.
He continues to rub my back as obscenities trail from his mouth like a mantra.
“Shit, shit shit shit shit.”
