Day 99

It was late when the alarms when off.  Mom did a surprise Emergency Disaster Drill or E.D.D. No one played around this time.  I think we set a new all time record for quickest entry into the cabins underground shelter.  We beat Mom into the shelter and almost locked her out. The best part was when Will and Lily came out of Lily’s bedroom together.  Mom didn’t see that part but the rest sure did. You could see from a mile away that Lily and Will were trying to hide something. After the drill was over we got to go back to bed.  Mom was happy with the results. Though she did stop Will as everyone was heading back to their rooms for the night. She wanted to take a closer look at the large purple bruise on his neck. Will told mom that he tripped and hit the door knob during the drill.  I covered for Lily and told Mom that is what happened. Pretty sure Mom didn’t believe it. Also to prevent another door knob related injury she took my door away! You know the room Will is supposed to be staying in. This almost puts the debt I owe Lily to even in my books.

Mom is merciless when it comes to sleep.  You would think after waking us all up for a E.D.D we would get to sleep in.  Nope she just got us up even earlier. The sun wasn’t even up yet why should I!  She sent us to the farm to go tend to the animals. Milk the few cows, feed the chickens and clean out the stalls.  Yeah she knew where that bruise on Wills neck came from. Mr.Meza came by a little later to tell us another round of those bugs attacked during the night.  He chased them down and followed them to their hive by himself. Have to make a note of never getting on this guys bad side. Then Courtney and I went got the task of fixing the chicken coop.  While in the tool shed a shadowy figure jumped out at us. Courtney screamed and ran away while it had me dead to rights. Thankfully It was just a ranch cat that was sleeping. We woke it up and it had to take some sort of revenge. The guards on duty had a good laugh about that. It seems like this cat does this to people on a regular basis. Courtney did not think that was funny. The coop was easy to fix and Mom gave Courtney, Beth and I the rest of the day off. Will and Lily on the other hand had a special work detail with Mom inside the Medical station.

Courtney, Beth and I had already started making dinner for everyone when Lily and Will came home. Mom made them watch a old navy film about the horrors of STDs. Lily watched it before, but it was new for Will. He was as white as a ghost and looked like he just got done throwing up his lunch. Yep Mom did know how he got that bruise. Which mean if I ever get the courage to ask Beth out Mom might make me watch that video to. Before everyone went to bed Mom tried to reach Dad on the radio again. He still has not checked in. This is two days in a row. What is going to happen if the rescue party needs to be rescued? Tomorrow is the earliest they should be back from their trip to save the Gonzales. Maybe the radio got busted or they are in stealth mode trying to be as quiet as possible. What I find strange is all the other radio channels are quiet to.

Day 97

There was a giant lighting storm today. Mom finally let us have a day off due to the weather. We got to play board games all day today. Will was able to kill the vampire strahd and the people of Barovia are safe for now. It got scary near the end and Courtney did a great job Dming. Beth is now hooked and wants to play another campaign. I think Will is a little more interested in Lily. Which I don’t like the idea of someone dating my sister. Though since Lily has recovered from being mauled she has been self conscious on her looks. Having someone pine over her has helped her with that a little. I think Will is going to stick with Dnd for a bit to, but only so he can be close to Lily.

 

Dad called in later that night. They made contact with the Gonzales and are in route to go pick them up. The charred attacked them again last night in numbers. Had it not been for the beasts gun turret they would have not made it. Dad kept cutting in and out because of the storm I think? The Gonzales are hiding out in one of the temp shelters that are along the way to the cabin. Fremont has them all over the place incase people get stuck and can’t make it to the cabin right away. I think I know the one they are at and that one is bug city. I can’t wait for them to finally be back here only a few more days! Now back to bed I am sure Mom is going to give us double chores tomorrow to make up for today.
