Ruth led Edward and Scouter down the dark corridors to an underground tunnel. The guards here were more heavily armed and all wore full radiation protection hazmat jumpsuits.
“You’ve got to be kidding, right?” Edward said to Ruth.
“Do I look like I’m laughing? Ruth replied, hands on hips.”
“What weapons are kept in here?” Edward asked, ignoring her reply and attitude.
“We have several Peacekeepers, Russian SS-18 Satans and a few medium range warheads from Israel. If they try to get into this place, the Naval Base and all of Philadelphia will be history.”
“But, you’ll destroy the good people with the bad. Are you willing to do this?” Edward was a bit worried that Ruth was a little too hawkish.
“They crossed the line by creating those zombies, and yes, I’m ready to do what is needed to stop them.”
“You’re freaking nuts!” Edward replied.
“Am I?” Just do your job and bring back Lazarus,” Ruth replied. She turned away from Edward and headed back towards the refugee area.
“I don’t know who to fear more, her or the Illuminati,” Edward said to Scouter as they began walking back towards the refugee area.
