012 Success


Wes glanced up as Kelsey dashed towards him, waving away the Silver Guardian he’d been talking to. “What’s wrong?”

“No, no, it’s…” Kelsey caught his arm to keep from overshooting and her momentum wrenched them around. “The field’s open. The girl, the blonde, she came through and told us we could send in supplies but no one was to try to pass through, and that no one would be able to leave, and then she went back through and now things can get through from our side!”

“All around it?” Wes caught her arm, hurrying towards the field.

“On all the roads, anyway. What do you want to do? We’re passing in the supplies we have but there’s not much.”

Wes nodded, tapping his headset. “This is Commander Collins. Start moving the supplies up to the field…set up a bucket brigade, then. Get it done. We don’t know how long we’ll be able to get stuff through.”

“What’s wrong?” Kelsey asked.

“Nothing, one of the trucks broke down in the road.” He shrugged faintly. “Why did they decide to let us through?”

“She said they’d learned their lesson.” She caught Wes’ arm, slowing him. “That they’d killed the dissenters, and now the others could eat.”

Wes grimaced. “Alright. Let’s make sure they can, then.”

Ryan joined them at the edge of the field, and Eric arrived a few minutes later. The civilians in the town were already pressing against the field, and the Silver Guardians were passing supplies through as quickly as they could.

“What prompted the change of heart?” Eric asked, sliding into the bucket brigade.

Ryan passed them, going to speak to a girl on the other side of the field. Wes glanced at Kelsey who shrugged, slotting herself into the line beside Eric.

Wes stayed out of the line, coordinating through his headset and waiting for Ryan to come back. When he did, Eric and Kelsey slipped out of the line to join them.

“They’ve got a lot of the town working in some mine,” Ryan reported. “Vida doesn’t know what they’re digging up, but some of the workers ran away. That’s when they closed the supply lines. Today the workers were caught and hanged, so the lines were opened back up.”

Eric winced. “Hanged?”

Ryan nodded grimly. “We’ve got to get in there.”

“We’re working on it,” Wes promised. “For now, the only thing we can do is get these supplies in, so let’s do it.”

Ryan and Kelsey went back to the line; Eric lingered, watching Wes. “It’s not much.”

“Still success, sort of. Come on. We need to get as much through as we can.”

Thank god the Rangers didn't leave, eh?
Man, am I happy to see TF and LR with the supplies. And Ryan seems to be doing better. <3
