    Ash listened closely to the portable radio she had on her lap. She heard a girl talking about supplies and shelter, Ash’s radio was good but occasionally cut out. She listened the girl, who’s name she heard to be Elizabeth. The radio said that she was at the Holiday Inn hotel, Ash guessed it would be the one on the west side witch wasn’t to far from where she was.

    Ash sat alone in an abandoned movie theater, The Palace was what it was once called, before the virus. This was her hide out for the past few days. She thought she’d been there long enough though, so she decided to go to the hotel to see what the girl was all about.

    Ash grabbed her radio and turned it down listing to the same message as earlier being repeated. With her duffel bag around her shoulder and the radio where she could still hear it she carefully walked out of the theater making sure no zombies were there.

    She got to her pretty old, wreck of a truck. It worked and did what needed to be done so it was fine. However with Ash being a mechanic and all she rigged it a little bit. This truck can now go its maximum speed when needed. The windows are all plexi-glass so it would be harder to break. The doors are also reinforced to be able to hold the very strong and heavy locks that will one day keep someone safe.

    Ash headed to the hotel by taking West Street, she didn’t want to go on the highway at the moment. She passed a McDonald's and saw and trailer park. The sign read Lakeside Landing. Ash decided to stop there and see if she could find anything to help her or maybe anyone that needs help.

    Nathaniel stared around, he saw a truck pull into the trailer park and his eyes widened. Quickly he revved his engine, speeding off into the trailer park, then shut his bike off and went on foot.

    All of the trailers were broken down, old, and rusting. Oddly enough the only thing he was really focused on was the truck, wich was why when he looked to the left to see a lage, snarling, Beast, he merely raised his gun.

    When he finally realized what he was fighting he jumped away, and took off running, heading towards the lake area of the trailer park. He turned down a curved road, forgetting his bike in the process.

    "Damn it." He cursed alloud, turning and shooting at the beast. The shot gun did little damage though, and the large former animal pounced, snarling loudly as it sailed through the air. Nathaniel dodged away, "God dammit! Someone help me!" He yelled aloud, taking another aim and shooting.


    Where eyes should have been to empty sockets were, the most dark feature of the girl in front of her. It seemed as if she was talking, but when she looked closer she saw the thick black thread that stitched the girls mouth together. ~BLU By LDM

    Hour just listened over and over again with his radio, 'Survivors' he thought. He quietly got up, got his knife and disabled all of his traps. Several of his traps was triggered he saw remains of a runner that was pierced by several sharp objects that fired when it stepped on a wire. Three normal zombies squashed in front of a car. He also got any remaining materials he could scavenge. He walked slowly for a time heading in the general direction of the hotel. For a few minutes he just walked and walked his breathing a little labored from his mask. He started to jog for a few minutes and he started to run, 'It's not that far, I don't need any vehicles. I know discovered shortcuts in my past expeditions too' he thought as wind wind touched his mask gently. He went trough great numbers of shortcuts just to see the hotel, there was a bus with two girls on the front. He approached them with almost no sound, 'I think they see me. he thought for the girls glanced quickly at him.
    The SADDEST people, seems to be the NICEST. Because they wouldn't want to mess anyone's MOOD. But you never know what SECRETS hide behind that nice SMILE. If you would look into their eyes, you would see DESPAIR and HOPELESSNESS. Could it have been a BROKEN HEART? Can it be something YOU have done? In every smile you would see a hint of a FROWN.

    Age: 25
    Gender: Male
    Starter Weapon(s): Military issued ArmaLite AR-10B Rifle and a Jimmy Lile "First Blood" Survival Knife

    Apperance
    Visual Apperance:
    Apperance: Takeda stands at 5'7, weighs 165 lbs, and has the build of a MMA fighter, which often led to challenges from his fellow soldiers. Slightly darker than the average Japanese, this is due to his military exercises outdoors. With dark brown eyes that compliment his skin tone, Takeda's eyes are always aware and alert, taking everything into speculation. On Takeda's left side of the chest, where the heart his, he has the Kanji character of Tranquility tattooed, down his right forearm are the Chinese characters for 'Guardian Angel', and on the left side of his neck he has the words 'Shadow Company' tattooed as well.

    Clothing/Armor: Takeda currently wears a tight-fit black crew neck shirt, woodland camo combat pants, and combat boots. In addition, he also has a backpack full of various supplies and limited ammunition.

    Other

    History: Takeda joined the US marines at the age of 16 and underwent training until the age of 22, leaving the marines to go back to Tokyo to take care of his dying father. When his father finally passed away, Takeda remained in Tokyo and was approached by several people, who later kidnapped him and brought him to a facility. With the kidnap being a way to keep their location secret, Takeda soon learned that the Shadow Company had been watching him for years and revered him for his discipline and his skills. Takeda later joined the Shadow Company, an elite group of mercenaries, and was later branded forever. Takeda's first assignment was a recon mission in Kansas City where he was to provide information about a corrupt business man that needed to be taken out. Six months into his mission, the epidemic broke out and Takeda was forced to remain in the US with no way out and no means of contacting the Company.

    Personality: Takeda mostly keeps to himself, but occasionally extends a helping hand to those who need it. With a US Marine background and a Mercenary's secrecy, Takeda often does things discreetly and effectively.

    Family: Takeda's father was the last family member that he ever contacted and talked to. As far as his little sister was concerned, she was in London for a school trip and he had no means of contacting her.

    (( Please let me know if this is a little overkill, I figured that every zombie-apocalyptic idea needed at least 1 military-based person ))

    (Nah your good Leon, I will add momentarily)

    Elizabeth had later, along with a hardly sleeping Kate went up onto the bus' roof once more. Both girls were restless, and the sounds of the night were creeping in on them quickly. There was still plenty of day light, yet the crickets were chirping and the distant howl of a coyote, or possibly a feral dog.

    "Hey. . . Liz, is that." Kates eyes widened, her features perking up. Elizabeth didnt spot anything for a moment, before finally seeing. Another person, a boy, or at least she thought it was a boy, from her point atop the bus she couldnt see.

    "Kate wait!" Elizabeth called out wearily, the boy could actually be a Zed. Though Kate ignored Elizabeth and rushed down, grabbing the Baseball bat that Elizabeth kept just in case. Though most would wonder how an eight year old could kill a zombie, Kate was pretty surprising at times.

    "Hello! Im Kate!" The Excited brunette called out to the stranger.

    James checked his radio receiver one more. The thing had been broken since he got in the cop car he was currently sheltering in but he still hoped it might pick up something. "Damn, still nothin'" He muttered to himself. He went back to attempting to repair his M9. "Su-" The radio crackled into life. James jumped forward and grabbed the mic. "Hello?" He asked in the hopes someone would here him. "currently located at the Holiday Inn hotel in Wichita. If there is anyo-" the radio cut out again.
    "Hello? Are you there?" He threw down the mic in frustration. "Wichita" He said to himself. He pulled a map from his rucksack and scanned it quickly. "That's not too far." He looked at his gas. "But if no-ones there I'm done for." He contemplated for a moment. "The chance of finding survivors is worth the risk." He jammed his screwdriver into the ignition and began to drive.
    As his car ran out of gas he pulled up on the opposite side of the road to the before mentioned hotel.

    Ashleigh ran out of the abandoned house she was raiding to find a guy being attacked by a Beast. He was yelling for help. Before the Beast could see her or know that she was standing there. She got to her truck and grabbed her gun and cricked bat. She shot the Beast 3 times once missing, the other two hitting him in the leg and the stomach.

    The Beast snarled and lessened its attention on the man and turned to Ash slowly. Then it charged, even with a shot leg it could run just as fast. Ash got into her truck and quickly started it. She shot at the Beast before taking off. The Beast was tailing her and once got a hand on the truck she sped up and turned a corner, cut the engine, and started running.

    Once Ash was in a safe place she found a good angle on the beast and shot her last to bullets. Both bullets hit in its open, drooling, snarling, mouth. The Beast turned and looked around to try and find Ash, but couldn’t. Something distracted it tough and it ran off in the direction of the broken fence leading to the lake. After making sure the Beast couldn’t see her anymore Ash went to her truck and inspected it quickly. There was a medium sized bend in the tailgate, Ash guessed it was from when the Beast grabbed it.

    Ashleigh got in her truck and slowly drove back to where she found the man. He was still there, so she got out of her truck and went over to him to make sure he didn’t get any wounds that could have gotten him infected. “Hello.” She said approaching him, “did you get any wounds?” she asked politely. She was going to wait for his response before asking him what happened. After all, being infected or not was more important than why someone was somewhere. Ash waited there patently for the man to acknowledge her.

    Takeda sat at the foot of the bed he had been sleeping on, tying his boots when he heard the transmission. He quickly took out a pair of headphones and plugged them into the radio strapped to his chest, slightly turning up the volume. Listening to the transmission, he only paid attention to the key words: Survivors, Wichita, Holiday Inn. "Finally a transmission..." Takeda muttered to himself, taking out one of the earbuds, letting dangle by his stomach. Opening one of the bedside drawers, he chanced upon a map of Kansas. Taking a pen from the nightstand, he uncapped it with his teeth and analyzed the map looking for Kansas City and Wichita. "Kuso..(Damn it)," he cursed in Japanese. "That's a long way to go." Memorizing the routes to Wichita, Takeda walked over to his backpack, opening it and taking out his ammunition. "Only enough for two clips, I'll have to conserve for now."

    Unsheathing his survival knife, Takeda examined the edge of the blade and tested it on the wall, leaving a clean slice. Nodding with satisfaction, he sheathed his knife and shouldered his backpack. Opening the patio sliding door, he took a quick glimpse of the surrounding, looking for any sign of movement. Satisfied that there wasn't any, Takeda exited through the room door and quickly made his way down several flights of stairs before reaching the hotel lobby. Leaning over the lobby desk, Takeda shifted around papers and phones, attempting to look for car keys while keeping his eyes on the front door.

    Errrrrooooooaaaannnnn...

    Before the zombie behind the counter could grab his arm, Takeda quickly unsheathed his knife, spun around, and stabbed the 10 inch blade underneath the zombie's head, through the mouth, and into the skull, all-the-while covering his mouth with his free hand. Tugging the blade out of the zombie's skull, Takeda wiped it with the mess of papers that crowded the desk. Frustrated at his lack of attentiveness, he jumped over the counter and looked for the key rack, inspecting the keys. He needed to find a vehicle that was fast, mobile, and easy to maneuver. After a few seconds of searching, Takeda smirked. At the very bottom of the rack were keys to, what he guessed, was a motorcycle. Grabbing the keys, he placed them in his pant pocket and jumped over the counter once again.

    Grabbing his rifle, he walked quietly to the front doors, peeking outside from behind a nearby pillar. Still no sign of movement, he thought to himself. Taking one last look around, Takeda slung the strap over his shoulder and quickly took the black bandanna that was tied to his arm and tied it around his mouth. Grabbing his rifle again, he quickly backtracked to the stairwell leading to the parking garage. Ducking around corners, Takeda couldn't help but laugh a little. In front of him was a Ducati Streetfighter, a motorcycle that he always wanted. It was the perfect color too, a dazzling Pearl White. Taking the keys, he was happy to find that he managed to grab the correct keys and turned the ignition. The motorcycle burst into life, roaring loudly in the quiet parking garage. Taking a separate smaller key off of the keychain, he unlocked what seemed to be an added storage compartment off of the side. Inside he found a pair of goggles and emergency flares. Just what I needed, he thought to himself, smiling from under his makeshift mask. Setting the goggles evenly on his face, Takeda slung his rifle over his shoulder, tightening the strap, and revved the engine, swerving 90 degrees to his left and took off.

    ~~~~~~Mini Time Lapse for Takeda~~~~~~~

    It had been 4 hours since he left the hotel he was staying at. Monitoring his speed and the fuel tank, he figured that if he kept a constant speed of 120mph, he would make it to Wichita before the sunset. Truth be told, he could have easily made it to his destination well before sunset, but Takeda preferred to do things at night, a habit that was drilled into him from both his experience in the Marine and with the Company. He knew it was a proven fact that people didn't like to travel at night and would prefer to start in the morning. This was due to sleepiness and the general idea that travelling at night was more dangerous than travelling by sunlight. Takeda preferred the opposite, especially when it came to his mission. He found that it was easier to track someone when it was night time considering that the person would be in one place.

    Even so, not everyone thinks the same. I need to time this perfectly if I want to help those people.

    (You can make relationships along the RP, right?)

    'This must be the group... only two? Well, I think that would be sufficient' Hour thought. As they saw him a little girl about the age of eight came down holding a baseball bat with a huge grin. The older girl was looking at him deciding what's his age or if he's even human, she probably couldn't decide because of Hour''s mask. When the girl was near him and the brunette haired girl said "Hello! I'm Kate!" Hour was not really surprised after all anybody would be happy to see survivors. He bent down a little to face Kate, eye to eye. He was analyzing her as if she's some finished and stable experiment. He could see that he was unnerving her in every way, his silent reaction ,the different color of both his eyes and his mask was kind of suspicious too. The older girl was standing now pointing her gun at Hour's head as if he were a creature. He breathed warm air in front of Kate, "Aren't you a little too small?" he whispered, the comment reaching Kate's ear. He actually like her look, brunette was one of his favorite colors, her pale skin was almost unnerving too. He also never saw someone with green-blue eyes. He haven't studied the other girl yet, he walked past Kate towards the eldest.

    Nathaniel watched the scene in shock, he had known there was a survivor here, but he had never thought it would be someone so bold as to let a beast chase them. When she came back after leading the beast away he smiled towards her, considering giving this brave girl a hug for saving him, but he knew some people thought that would be weird.

    "Eh, thanks, and uh, no I didn't get any wounds." he gave a small smile towards her, rubbing the back of his neck. He wandered if she had killed the beast, or if she had just shot it in the tongue. Either way he was grateful. "Hello there, I am Nathaniel McAdams." He was a bit out of breath still, and a bit on edge. He had left his bike in the midst of running away, and he wandered if it was still running. A sudden idea struck upon him, he wandered if this woman was heading in the same direction as he was.

    "by any chance might you be looking for the woman who has been broadcasting over the radio?" Nathaniel was acting very polite, but as usual he was scrutinizing the girls appearance. She seemed kind enough, but any sign of infection and he would be gone, even if it was the smallest sign of a rash. He spotted no rash, bites, or scratches. Though he knew it was easy to hide that stuff, he knew that he wouldnt see the rash if it was on her back, but so far her face seemed clear.

    Slowly he pulled something from his pocket, it was a small book, one that you could keep to record things in. He qucikly jotted down a date and what had happened thus far. It was his way of remembering in case he became infected and was given amnesia. Nathaniel then put the book back and begun to walk away, "I will be right back, I just have to make sure my bike isn't running." he reassured her, though he wandered if by the time he got back she would still be here.

    About five minutes later he rolled around the corner with his bike. He killed the engine and stepped off, she was still there.


    Where eyes should have been to empty sockets were, the most dark feature of the girl in front of her. It seemed as if she was talking, but when she looked closer she saw the thick black thread that stitched the girls mouth together. ~BLU By LDM
