VauquelinOrko   1y ago

With frantic huffs Orko ran, desperate to escape the flames and destruction behind him. He considered dropping his backpack so he can have one less burden, and almost actually did before he remembered some of the supplies he had in there could also save his life. He saw an alleyway and without a second thought, he rushed in without checking whether or not there are dangers or other people in there already, only hoping that he could hide there for the time being.
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos was being harassed by a gang getting all his supplies taken before he booked it as fast as he could, diving into the first hiding place he noticed. He hit his head as he stood up.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko allowed himself to sigh in relief for a moment, thinking that right now he was finally out of danger. Suddenly he heard a thud nearby and made his way over to the other end of the alleyway where the noise came from, and saw someone standing there who Orko presumed had bumped into something. [#56BBA4 “Uh… are you okay?”]
CharacterKarlos   1y ago

Karlos looked at Orko. "Huh? Oh, yeah I'm fine" Karlos said. He had a bruise on his forehead however.
Vauquelin     1y ago

Orko light-heartedly scowled as he observed the other person. [#56BBA4 “You have a bruise… do you want an ice pack-”] Just as he finished speaking, Orko heard several aggressive shouts coming from the side; it sounded like a gang was getting closer. [#56BBA4 “Nevermind, maybe we should run right now–!”]
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

"Yeah good idea" Karlos said after he pulled out his emergency handgun. He start running.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko followed closely afterwards, regretting that he didn’t have weapons as good as the other person’s as he only retrieved a can of pepper spray from his pocket. [#56BBA4 “Hey, uh, do you know any safe place to stay? My home is already wrecked…”] He asked as he ran.
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

"I think there might be an old warehouse nearby" Karlos said as he kept running.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

[#56BBA4 “Alright, let’s make sure they don’t follow us first, then you lead the way,”] Orko yelled, before running into another winding alley that intersects with many other paths. [#56BBA4 “If we go through here hopefully they will get confused and stop chasing us… or I think it was you they were following from the start? Anyway I digress, let’s go.”]
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

"Got it" Karlos nodded. "And yes they were chasing me" he said. "Holy crap I can't breathe"
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

[#56BBA4 “Oh, are you alright? Um… if it’s an inhaler or something you need, sorry I don’t have anything like that…”] Orko muttered with some genuine concern. [#56BBA4 “Also I think we can just walk now, I’m sure we’ve managed to lose the gang...”]

"Juat out of breath" Karlos said. "I'll be fine" he sighed. He was exhausted from that running as he took a minute to catch his breath.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko also rested and caught his breath. After he felt a bit better, he turned to Karlos. [#56BBA4 “So now, yeah, take your time and um… lead the way to the warehouse, yeah?”] He silently hoped this time there really would be no hostile folk there.
Character     1y ago

"Ok" Karlos said starting to walk to the warehouse. It being nighttime didn't help the situation but he eventually made it to the warehouse. "C'mon, let's look for supplies"
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko nodded. After both people were inside the warehouse, Orko blocked the doorway with a heavy box. [#56BBA4 “We should rest here for the night… and that is to make sure no other gangs or hostile people find us when we’re resting.”]
Character     1y ago
Hell from above

"Yeah, I agree, also, sorry" Karlos said turning on his flashlight.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

[#56BBA4 “Hmm? For what?”] Orko hummed, slightly confused as he began rummaging in a pile of containers in a corner of the room.
Character     1y ago
Hell from above

"For dragging you into this" Karlos said before he found some food and accidentally flipped a switch turning on the main power.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

[#56BBA4 “Huh… well, it’s fine, I mean, I didn’t have much supplies back there but now, thanks to you–”] Orko trailed off, gesturing to the supplies he sorted, then shifted his attention to trying to find a larger bag to pack all the supplies in.
Character     1y ago

Karlos turned on the lights. "I think we should just like stay here for a while" he said.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

[#56BBA4 “Yep,”] nodding, Orko pulled together several pieces of cardboard to make a makeshift bed.
Character     1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos just jumped onto a pile of foam.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko lay on the cardboard but tried to remain awake, just in case, to keep watch for any possible contingencies.
Character     1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos fell asleep instantly.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko didn’t know when he dozed off, but awoke the next day feeling painfully hungry.
Character     1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos had been buried up to his neck in his sleep with foam.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko found a few cans of processed foods and tried to wake Karlos up by yelling.
Character     1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos was too comfortable and didn't hear Orko.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Slightly exasperated, Orko dropped one of the cans on Karlos’s body. [#56BBA4 “Wake and eat up. Or not, and I’ll take all the food…”] He muttered, though a playful tone edged his voice.
Character     1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos woke up as the can hit his head. "Owww!"
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Having found a can opener to open his own canned food of choice, Orko held the tool out for Karlos to take. [#56BBA4 “We shouldn’t stay in one place for too long, or the air might stagnate which is especially dangerous now that there’s so many ash and toxins everywhere… So what I’m saying is, we should eat and go soon.”]
Character     1y ago
Hell from above

"Okay" Karlos said taking the can opener and eating.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko quickly finished his own food and began to pack a lot of supplies into a duffel bag. After he was done, he moved the away box that blocked the door and began pacing. [#56BBA4 “Tell me when you’re ready…”]
Character     1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos did the same. He was carrying two duffel bags. "Ready"
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

[#56BBA4 “Great, then let’s go!”] Orko only spared Karlos a glance and pulled open the door, stepping outside. The scent of smoke hit him and he realized there were many flames encroaching nearby. [#56BBA4 “Good thing we didn’t stay inside for too long or who knows if we’d have died of the fume emissions…” ] He mumbled, a bit to Karlos but moreso to himself.
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

"Yeah, I've been through too much to die now" Karlos said rushing out.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

[#56BBA4 “Heh, same…”] Orko laughed somewhat humorlessly as he found a path that let him maneuver around the flickering flames.
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos followed Orko through the flames.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

After finding his way out of the fire, Orko looked back at the warehouse that was being slowly eaten away by the blaze. He muttered, [#56BBA4 “I wonder… did this fire get spread here naturally or was it set intentionally by one of those maniacs…?”]
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

"I have no idea" Karlos said falling over from exhaustion.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko sighed, before hurriedly reaching to try and hold Karlos steady before he hit the ground.
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos was breathing very loudly.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Concerned, Orko winced and asked, [#56BBA4 "Do you need water? or anything else? I'll, I'll try to find something if you need it..."]
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

"I'm good" Karlos said pulling out an inhaler from his pocket. (He has asthma)
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Orko looked at him with a bit of skepticism and concern, before muttering. [#56BBA4 "Well... if you say so."] He took out a bottle of water for himself and drank some of it.
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos used the inhaler.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

[#56BBA4 "Well... once you're ready again, should we get going?"] Orko asked.
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

"Yeah we should" Karlos said.
VauquelinOrko   1y ago

Without another word Orko stood up and started walking. He didn't exactly know where to go next, so he went in the direction his intuition led him. He wasn't sure that it was the best path, however with not much to lose, it wouldn't hurt to try.
CharacterKarlos   1y ago
Hell from above

Karlos followed although he knew he would be slow.
