The Life Of Mike Jones Chapter 1 Book One
The end came quietly most everyone that had planed to leave had left last week taking trucks cars elect Mike and his mother had stayed behind waiting on a message from his father. They were setting in the living room watching CNN [the only channel still broadcasting] when their was a knock on the front door my mother went to the door opened it she was facing a cop (yes may I help you) "are you Debbie Jones?"(yes) he handed her a folded paper turned and walk off. My mother closed the door open the paper read the message as I watched waiting for her to finish to ask(is it from dad)"yes it is just give me time to gather my self will you Mike. I walked into the kitchen open the bread box took out a loaf of bread and made a sandwich, sat at the kitchen and started eating my mother walked in I saw she was wearing two 45 in a shoulder rig when I gave her a questing look" we need to go armed from now on Mike" she handed me my desert eagle I laid it on the table.
By the end of the week the people that had stayed behind had used up all the gas left in town and the shelves in the corner store were empty we were getting low on food in the house. I was setting in the front window keeping watch on our street when my mother came in "Mike time to put plan B to work" (what's that mother?)"come on Ill show you going to the garage. I saw two bikes each with saddle bags and bed rolls " get on follow me" before long we were ridding out of town on state route 170 headed for Jasper Springs Washington. Not a bad ride the road was level with one down hill run, after being on the road for three hours we stopped for lunch" think we should spend the night here Mike?" I looked around we were setting in the middle of a field I could not see the road and no one on the road could see us(ok mother looks like a good place to me) we took our sleeping bags off the bikes and laid them on the ground. We were under a tree so fire wood was no problem I gather some and built a fire she cooked lunch after eating I gather more wood for the fire and laid down took a map wile she keep watch two hours later I got up and took my turn keeping watch wile my mother took her map once she was up I tracked back near the road hiding in the bushes I keep watch all I saw was three men and a woman traveling towards Sun City I felt sorry for them. When it started getting dark and wile I could still see I pulled back to our camping place, mother had a fire going and dinner for me.
I sat next to the fire eating looking at her Debbie Jones 35 brown hair green eyes 126 pounds 6ft tall with two 45 ridding in a shoulder rig under each arm and a AR15 at her side that was my mother. If anyone had been looking at me they would have seen a 15 year old boy with brown hair and blue eyes with a desert eagle in a belt at my middle and an AR15 laying next to my leg.(ok mom ready to tell me the rest of plan B?)"when we reach Jasper Springs we are to wait for a week and if you're father isn't their by then [her voice broke I could see tears running down her cheek] we will move on our goal is Mountain Springs WV it's the place I grew up in I know you have never been their it's a small place someone should remember me and we will be safe their" (I've got first watch you get some sleep) we traded off every three hours all throw the night. At 500 am my mother was up cooking breakfast"hey Mike ready to eat?"(I sure am a growing boy like me needs all the food he can get) she smiled at me; we sat under the tree eating with out talking. We cleaned up the camp site packed up and after checking the road to make sure it was safe we were on our way again.
