While Rich, Brady, and Skillbo were discovering their new surroundings, very nearby Pary and Cady were doing the same.
They awoke in a store room, and heard the same radio broadcast, and had the same reaction when they discovered they had lost 2 years of memory. They discovered two infected, and found them equally difficult to eliminate.
A search in an extra room revealed a notebook written in shorthand with the name Deckar scratched on the front. Cady decides to conceal this discovery from Pary.
Moving quickly, they decide to make their way into the mall complex. Popping a tire to use as a distraction for the many infected blocking their way in parking lot, they cross the parking lot and enter the mall. They discover it has been deserted, and see a pile of burned bodies. The spend the day searching the mall for supplies, and stay the night in a control box in the movie theater on the top floor.
Shortly after they rise on the second day in the mall, they witness Rich, Brady, and Skillbo make their way into the mall. They quietly observe the confrontation exchange with Soriah, and then with Deckar. They listen to his description of what he calls The Originals, and the confirmation that this was a Syndicate compound. They decide to keep concealed and watch the group gather supplies in the coming days.
Cady and Pary gather the keys to all the vehicles and await the group by the motor pool in the garage.
Will the groups join forces? Or will they fight between themselves as they begin their search for answers?
