Day 6: Interlude

Agent Sculder and Agent Kay take turns watching while the other catches some sleep.  When they are rested the question before them is what to do next?

"I don't know, Kay, I don't really fancy heading into the woods on foot," Sculder mused.

"Well, I don't either, slick," Kay retorted, "but we need to find where these things are coming from.

"Do you really think they're coming out of the woods?"  Sculder looked at him curiously.  "What do you think we'll find out there?  A secret government scientific underground research facility?"  He shook his head.  "Between the two of us, one of our agencies would know about it and inform us, don't you think?"

Kay paused for a second.  "Well, maybe, but do you think there are that many people still alive at either agency to worry about informing us of anything they might know?"

Sculder had to nod his head in agreement.  "If we're going to pursue this deeper into the woods, let's at least take the truck as far as we can."  He gestured towards the SUV parked outside the cabin.  "Maybe we can take it all the way through, and it will save us having to walk through the woods with those things out there."

"Of course," Kay said, indicating it was the obvious decision.

Sculder hesitated, staring at Kay.  "OK, so when are we going?"

"Let's wait for the sun to get up a little higher.  I'd rather be out there in the sunlight, than in the dark with those things, wouldn't you agree?"

"Yes, I would," Sculder nodded.

"OK, then.  Let's give it another couple of hours."  Kay laid back on the bunk again.  "Let's try to get a little more sleep in the meantime.  Your turn to watch."  He closed his eyes and drifted off.
