Wakes up. Surrounded by no one. Cars are empty. Houses are empty. Bird(bat) poop plopped in the street. Don't know what's going on. Walk around. 2:10
Find food. Store it. 3:15
Walk around some more. 3:46
Look at a house. Curtains close fast. Someone's there. Go to the house. Knock on the

Looks down. Looks up. Ma'am please.
Little girl I'm not gonna tell you one more time.Cocks rifle.
Sighs.Turns around. 4:59
Hears birds(bats) screech...
