(Scout Pfeiffer continued from They say the hangover after you get drugged and kidnapped by terrorists is the worst.)

Scout blinked.

She stood at the precipice separating solid ground and bridge. She saw the blockade in the distance, three people who seemed in the midst of... counting? Trading? Whatever. It really did not matter. What seemed more important was how she planned to pass by trio. It seemed rather easy. There were three ways to cross the bridge after all, two walkways and a road separating them. She could just walk straight ahead and pass them without so much as a hello.

But then she'd be turning her back on them. Scout wasn't stupid enough to do that.

Frankly she was sorting out what to do once the two girls met. The boy joined soon after. Scout was operating under the assumption that they did not see her, a rookie mistake. Scout was too far back to really hear what they were saying. It wasn't like they were screaming for all the world to hear, and rightfully so. But it intrigued her. Maybe one of them had a gun. She'd be willing to fork over everything she had for a gun, even the bags of candy she had tucked away... though she honestly had trouble believing that obtaining a gun would be that easy.

She thought for a moment. Then she shook her head.

Know what?

Fuck it. Just pass em.

Scout kept her eyes squarely on the group as she walked closer to the traders. She shouldered her dufflebag. Her saw was tucked into the pocket of her top, the hood thrown over her head. The handle of the saw stuck out but, seriously, Scout didn't care if they saw it. She recognized Williams - the Chinese girl with the nice set of chucks - but not the other two. Must be seniors. Whatever. Didn't matter who they were. Scout just wanted to get through.
