What follows is just one part of an ongoing survival fiction series written by John Rourke and has been published on Amazon. It is being made available here for free. A new entry is published every day. The story is written in a daily journal format.
August 18th Eric has a girlfriend…..
Figured out why Eric had been spending so much time away from the house….he has a girlfriend.
He told me today that he has been spending a lot of time with a women on the other side of the neighborhood. Her name is Pam. I remember seeing her before The Event but had never talked to her. Eric told me that he helped her with a couple of raised bed gardens and during the time at her place – something just clicked. I told him that was great and I was happy for him. He mentioned they are talking about moving in together but she is concerned about the limited food supplies she has.
This is tough. The neighborhood has come together and helped each other out, but I cannot basically take in another mouth to use up the supplies I have. I told Eric that if he decided to move in with Pam I would support him the best I can. He can certainly take some supplies with him. He said that he felt that his moving was likely to happen.
Interesting….. “Dating during a disaster”. If electricity was still on this would make for a reality show.
Finished up quite a bit of work on the bug out trailer. M is making up an inventory list which I might slip into this journal for future reference. I watched her with Caleb earlier today. She was beautiful. I am surprised that she never had kids of her own. Seems to come natural to her.
Short entry today. Tired and need to get to sleep.
