The network I was leeching off of went down a few weeks ago, and just a few hours ago it came back on. Since I'm in a relatively safe place, I didn't want to move and risk getting caught.
Anyway, I promised I'd tell you what happened over the past few months, so here it goes.
I don't remember much about what happened the night I ran. I can get a vague outline by reading the post from that night, but other than that all I can remember is darkness and trees. If I encountered anything later that night, I don't remember it.
I woke up in the early afternoon and found myself in a town about two states away from where I lived. I had this long scab on my arm, too, but it didn't look like someone had cut me. I think it might have came from landing on a stick, but I probably won't know for sure. I did have my belongings with me, so whatever managed to move me was nice enough to let me keep my stuff. It's a lot tougher than it sounds, though. I'm able to wash my clothes at this place in town, but that doesn't stop them from being beat up. My shoes are about ready to fall off my feet, too.
It's not that I can't buy clothes. I could if I wanted to. I just need the limited amount of money I have in my wallet for food, and even that has almost ran out. I do have a debit card, but I really don't want to use it because it'd be easier for someone to find me that way.
I guess my savior in all of this has been these yard sales. Around here, every Saturday someone is selling a bunch of junk that I can use. I've already replaced a few of my clothes for only a couple of dollars, and I'm going to guess that it'll probably be a few months until I need to replace them again. Not all of them fit, of course, but you have to make do with what you got, right?
Right, anyway, getting back on topic. I was expecting to see the monsters coming after me as soon as possible, but it's like they've lost my scent or something (although to be honest, I'm probably tempting fate by saying that). There's been some weird stuff that's happened, but nothing to do with me. A few disappearances, really, and those were in another state.
I guess the weirdest thing has been picking up on things that I haven't seen before. For instance, that monster I talked about in my last post... I mentioned how I didn't believe the person at first, but I continued to read about it until I did my homework. Normally, I would have just blown them off and went about my day, but in the position I am in, I don't know... It's hard to put into words. I guess I felt sorry for them. I wanted to help, but being just text over the Internet isn't very helpful..
Just letting you know, I'm not running. I've thought about it, but I figure it costs a bit too much to keep running from town to town. I'll stay where I'm at; nice and safe-like. Once the things get here - and they will get here - I'll consider running, but I have to have a plan first. That night, I didn't have a plan and I almost had an abrupt organ transplant thanks to the Suited Surgeon.
In the mean time, I'll try and update as often as I can, but don't expect too much. If that wifi goes down again, you might not hear from me for a couple of weeks again.
