The boy was scared Rain could see it in his eyes she felt sadness wash over her, this kid would never be the same she let it show on her face how hurt she was by it but only for a moment then she went back to stern and strong. The kid looked rain in the eyes his were so wide still so shaken, he was pail and jumpy.
“Y-yes. I… I wa-want to be Safe.” He muttered.
Rain snapped back up she put the cat on her shoulder and grabbed the man’s hand as it came just a little closer to them she gripped it hard and glared into his face. She looked into his eyes deeply with her dark cold eyes and studied him for a moment. She shut her eyes and shook her head making a sound of displeasure she tossed his hand away from her, she looked gently at the kid and nodded. Rain glared back at the man.
“Fine, But just know this I don’t need your ass and I will leave you if I have to so you better be worth the trash your talking. I’m saving this kid and thats all I care about.”
Rain let the kid go and her lunged out for her grabbing onto her arm, Rain smiled down at him.
“Im just putting the cat away, I cant hold my gun, you and the cat all at the same time. Okay. I wont leave you.” She said trying to comfort him.
The boy let go and she grabbed the cat off her shoulder she zipped up her jacket and put it inside letting it head poke out a little. Rain grabbed her gun and took the boy’s hand with the other, she looked at the man.
“The name is Rain and thats all you need to know.” She said before walking out the door taking point.
Leon watched her putting the small kitten inside her jacket. Without hesitation Leon reached over to lift up the other one. “Don’t worry,” he began and did the same as her, making sure the small black kitten was safe inside his jacket. “As soon as everyone is safe, I’m leaving.”
He was slowly getting used to the way she was speaking to him. Leon wasn’t really used to women being in control of the situation; it wasn’t his ‘thing’. But somehow she didn’t bother him as much. She kept calm instead of screaming her head off. And she was good with a gun. Not something he would come across much lately.
“Rain?” Leon smiled a bit. “Suits you…” As they got outside a few groans could be heard from afar. Leon held out his gun and sighed a bit. “It’s best to leave. We don’t know how many there is out there…”
Letting out a deep breath, Leon pointed to the right. “I got a Jeep parked in that direction. I cleared the path from there so we should be safe.” Leon looked at her quickly and held the kitten on his chest closer with his left hand. “I will give you a lift if needed. Just give me the location.” Leon began to head towards the Jeep, making sure the road around them was safe enough.
Rain saw him watch her put the kitten away at first she was going yell at him thinking he was looking at her body but once he grabbed the other cat she calmed down. She looked at him in time to see his smile at her name she looked at him confused for a moment she was not sure why he was reacting so well to her, most men would be long gone. It was funny to her, she swore she’d never have kids and now look at her acting like a mother fighting with her Ex for the child. She shook it off and kept going Rain stopped once the man spoke about his Jeep, she took a deep breath remembering the last jeep she had been in. The jeep had belonged to a good friend of hers and she tried not to think about him anymore although he seemed to haunt her regardless. Rain had to put away her feeling about the jeep she nodded and followed him she felt the kid on her heels and it worried her that he was so scared, she took once glance back at him to be sure he was okay. Rain give him a reassuring smiled and he calmed a little. Rain picked up the pace as she spotted a hand full of zombies heading their way. She tapped the man’s shoulder and pointed at them she motioned to let them be and for them to stop dragging ass and run.
