Relocated

So it looks like I'm not going to be spending my holiday on the street after all, though whether or not this is an improvement is something I'm not clear on yet. For the moment, I've got a bed and solid meals for the first time in years. I'm half expecting to be murdered in my sleep, because it feels much too good to be true.

About a week and a half ago I was at the little cafe again, trying to catch up on blogs and maybe write a new post, when a very posh looking British man approached my table. He said we had 'things' in common, and that I should come with him, because he wanted to help me. I was not convinced, and not buying it-whether he was a pervert or a murderer or a proxy, I didn't want anything to do with him.

He ended up conveying some of his meaning by doodling one of those symbols on a napkin and telling me that he was on the side of the runners.

Fourty five minutes or so of heated discussion, none of which I can put up here for various reasons, I found myself in a car with him, going to what he claims is the remains of Hope. It's certainly fortified well enough, though it is perhaps suspiciously not destroyed.

My host is... apparently an old friend of the old owner of this place. He's asked me not to reveal what he claims his identity is, and for now I figure it's best to not cause problems. In any event, it's nice to have a bed.

  1. I'll tell you what everyone else seems so fond of telling me: be wary of anyone who shows up out of the blue like that.

    Especially if they've somehow managed to track you that well.

    1. Oh trust me. I am very, very wary of this guy. But if he's going to watch me anyway, I figure it's best if I can watch him too. And if I get free meals and a bed, so much the better.

    2. I know the feeling. I'll take the guy who conveniently shows up to save my skin when I need it most but may be up to something over the guy who's actively trying to kill me any day.

      I'm assuming you're searching old (or current) blogs for anything about him?

    3. Oh, if this guy is who he says he is, I've found plenty. And I don't like it.

  2. Not sure if it's a trap, or a stoke of luck, but enjoy your time at Hope. Who knows, maybe you can find some useful gear while you're there.

  3. So wait you're in Texas? Well, welcome to my neck of the woods. If you are not...well you have a very big problem.

    2. Well feel free to pop by sometime. Granted, it may be better for you to do so once my two guests are gone...

    3. Maybe. I don't want to make a habit of this.
