((Alice Baker continued from Tea Party with Death at Dawn))

Finally got it...

Alice limped onto the scene a bit late. The wound on her leg had reopened recently, so she had fallen a bit behind as she took the time to redress it. She had hoped that would be the end of it, but she had woken up to discover that the bandage had been bled through again. On the bright side, she was becoming a natural at tending to her own injuries, but the fact that her wound was not healing well did little to give her confidence.

She had listened to her group's concerns about their food supplies, and took a little time to search through her own bags to find out how well she was doing. Her rations were, to put it nicely, bare-bones. By her approximation, she had enough to last maybe a day and a half, possibly even two days if she stretched it. Either way, it wasn't a huge amount. "Not much on my end. Maybe a little over a day's worth." She reported.

She stepped out of the way while Sandra left for... whatever reason she may have had. She flinched a little as she put more weight on her newly re-bandaged leg and slowly brought herself into a sitting position. She looked between her two companions, both of whom seemed to be feeling the effects of a spartan, barely-filling diet. She placed her hand on her pack, slowly sliding towards the zipper, wondering if what she was about to ask was really the wisest option. But looking at the others, she really couldn't avoid it.

"Do you want to split some of mine?"

Candice was confident in her supply, but Bryony was fresh out. It didn't take any more provocation than that for Alice to reopen her pack and take another look at her remaining food. There wasn't much to speak of. One and a half bottles of water, about three-quarters of a piece of bread, and a slightly smushed energy bar. Not glamorous or filling by any stretch of the imagination, but it was food, and food kept her alive.

And it was going to keep Bree alive too.

With a bit of hesitation, Alice tore off almost half of her bread chunk and removed the half-empty bottle of water from her pack. She stood up with a little difficulty, trying to focus on her stronger leg, and brought the foodstuffs over to Bryony. She tapped her hungry friend on the shoulder and extended the items in her hand to her, holding them almost directly in her face.

"Take it." She instructed. "It's better than nothing."

Alice watched Bryony until she finished the bread. She took a couple of steps back to give her some space while she ate, but didn't avert her eyes. It wasn't that she didn't trust Bree not to waste her food, but her subconscious forced her to keep an eye on her regardless.

Once she had finished her share of the food, Bree declared a plan to search for Sandra. At the mention of her name, Alice looked around, surprised that Sandra hadn't come back yet. She thought that the other girl would only be away for a few minutes. The fact that she still hadn't come back was... concerning, to say the least. But something about the suggestion bothered her, specifically the part where Bryony said "I" instead of "We." Alice had a problem with the suggestion that she would head off on her own when they were still struggling with finding a weapon to protect themselves, and she spoke up to make her opinion known.

"You want to find Sandra, then we're coming with you." She said, voice solid with confidence. "We're already unarmed, so you aren't going anywhere alone. At least not until we fix that."

Alice was relieved at how easily they all came to the agreement that they needed to stick together. She gathered up her belongings and left with the other two, lagging a bit behind thanks to her injury, but still keeping up.

They needed to find Sandra, then they could get back to figuring out what to do next. Three was god, but four was better. With all of them standing together, they could probably handle anything that came at them. Numbers were a huge advantage, after all. More heads means more plans to choose from.

And as for how they would survive... they could figure that part out once they were done finding Sandra.

((Alice Baker continued elsewhere...))
