"So everyone's gone?", D-Dub said as she sat there, staring at me as if I was a walking nightmare.

"That's not our call, all I know is that NTB's being a family man, G's out somewhere, Reesy's presumably dead and Herbs...", I started to say with a chuckle.

"What's so funny?", she said, pointing the gun at me.

"Well, Herbs skipped town because of a paternal scare", Jellz said.

"That's not funny, Man", D-Dub said, still pointing the toy gun at me.

"Multiple Paternity Scares", I said, laughing a bit.

"You do realize if she wanted to, she could kill you huh?", Dior said.

"And if she do, I'll laugh", Jack said.

"You wouldn't help me?!", I said as the atmosphere changed slowly from hostile to homely.

"Reesy's dead?"

"All I know is that no one has heard from her since the infiltration and even then, she wasn't there", Derek said (I'm changing personification just in case Dior somehow comes across this).

"Either way, I wanted to tell you about the upcoming..", I began to say as Dior interrupted me.

"She doesn't need to know about nothing you have to tell her, you should be apologizing, fucker", he said.

"For what!? getting shot in a war!? news flash! there were bullets flying everywhere, I'm lucky to have walked out with this!", I said, undoing my shirt and showing a small hole a few inches below my sternum. Not sure why, but I felt uncomfortable doing that in a mental institution with my former war buddies and Jack in the room as I quickly buttoned my shirt back up.

"Man, I can't say I forgive you or anything, because you didn't really apologize, but what I will say is that I am glad to see that you're still alive..that war", she said, holding her head, "I'm just glad it's over", she said.

Commander, Dior and myself each looked at each other as if we just heard the worst thing in the world as she looked at us, "What?", she said, looking at us. "So that crap on the internet was true!?", she said, as if answering her own questions, "Someone tell me something! Please!", she said.

"The war isn't over, girl!", Jack said, "As a mattah' of fact, there's been a series of attacks on our homestead already, people have been barred within their cities until further notice, Man over here just wanted to know if the group were still in one piece", Jack said before a horn sounded.

"Visitations will be over in a few minutes, I repeat, Visitation will be over in a few minutes", a voice over an intercom said as two doctors came in preparing to take D-dub out.

"Either way, we'll start coming over here a lot more", Commander said, "Now that we know where you are just to keep you updated on what's going on", she said as D-dub had an expression on her face as if she just heard the worst news in the world as she stood up and trudged out.

"Well, looks like she knows now", Commander said.

"Yeah, from the looks of it, she's gonna be here for a while", I said as we all went back to the Commander's car.
