About this creation
A small town in Colorado in the year of 2015
Caleb broke from the group when he saw Amy waiting.
Although only 5 had left on the journey, 7 had come back
Caleb embraced Amy in a hug,"I'm glad you're okay," she whispered in his ear.
He pulled back, still holding her hands.
"I hate to break this up," said Beckmann, "But me and Caleb need to have talk."
Caleb sat across from Beckmann in Sal's Diner.
"What do you need to talk about?" Caleb asked.
Beckmann sighed and put down his helmet.
"You're not just some 17 year old farm boy are you?" he asked.
"My parents died a while back, when I was 4. Barely remember it," Caleb said.
"Aside from that. Where did you learn to fight? You also seem to have everyone's respect as a decision maker as well."
Caleb shrugged. "I've made some good decisions I guess. And my lawyer taught me marshal arts."
Beckmann, laughed,"You're LAWYER?"
"He was like a father to me, protected me from courts, taught me how to fight, to speak up, to stand up for others, to problem solve. Then he died, and I came here."
"How old where you?"
Caleb looked down. "13, my lawyer had no children or relatives, he left me everything he had. He had a house here, so I moved here. Been here ever since."
"There was something else in that will, what was it?"
Caleb's eyes narrowed, "mind you're own business."
Beckmann raised his hands and said, "hey! Just curious!"
"So," he said, changing the subject,"Got yourself a lady friend?"
Caleb raised an eyebrow."Amy? No she's just... A friend I guess."
"You don't go on picnics with "friends". You don't kiss "friends". No, that's your girlfriend."
Caleb smiled. "But still. It's not official."
Beckmann rolled his eyes,"Well MAKE it official!" Caleb laughed. He decided that he would. After all, it was the end of the world.
Just then, the doctor came running in,"Caleb, you need to come, NOW!"
Mr Johnston was laying face down on the ground in a pool of blood, his hat knocked off.
He was dead.
"It was the outlaws, it must have been," Caleb said with hate.
The next day...
The bus came in the same time it always did.
Caleb, Amy and one other passenger where sitting in it, coming in for work from their houses.
The turned the corner.
4 of the soldiers where talking to a new soldier.
When Caleb got off, he began to walk over.
"Who is this?" he asked.
Just then, the man turned around.
"You must be Caleb, said the man," pretending not to know him.
Beckmann saw the look on Caleb's face,"Do you know this man?"
