Huh? Oh, the gun.

Jason snickered, but instantly stopped as it could be perceived as evil laughter. He looked down at the kid he now knew as Joe and smiled.

"Naw, man, the gun's empty. See?" He pointed it at the ceiling and pulled the trigger. Only clicks. Pointed it at the wall. Only clicks.

Hoping that it had calmed the boy, Jason explained. "Y'see, if people see me with this, they'll assume me hostile and won't attack. Like those animals that look like poisonous animals or have markings that indicate poison without being poisonous to avoid predators. If animals can't do it, why can't I?"

He held out his hand to Joe. "Oh, if you don't know me, my name is Jason. You need help up?"

Inwardly, Jason hoped for an alliance. Safety in numbers seemed like a pretty good saying to go by in these times and circumstances. Not only would they all have people to trust, it was also protection and maybe even information.

This could be the start of something beautiful.
