It was on fire, I tell you! The house was on fire!
Today's run was quite interesting. Around the mile mark, I noticed a few fire trucks, a couple police cars, and an ambulance near a house. On closer inspection, a whole gaggle of people were surrounding the house, which appeared to have recently caught fire. The smoke from said house traveled a good distance away; it filled the area and provided a spooky atmosphere.
But of course, the real part of the run comes in the form of Jack and Eugene's discussions. And during this run, I learned how they met.
Imagine a time right at the cusp of the zombie outbreak. A group of ravers were partying in the woods, without a clue about the impending doom of humanity. According to Jack, it was quite the exciting party.
However, after three days of partying, Jack becomes exhausted and picks a spot somewhere further in the woods to lie down and sleep. And for thirteen hours, as Eugene pointed out. Eugene was not at the party, but his car has broken down a short distance away. Since he knew not to trust emergency services during this time, he gathered his essentials and ran away.
And as he ran in the forest, he tripped on, you guessed it, Jack's sleeping body. Right as Eugene turned around to see what he tripped on, he saw a whole bunch of zombies approaching.
Just a side note, the music from the rave was still blasting. So as Eugene began to speak, the crescendo of the song hit, causing a more epic moment when Eugene uttered, "Come with me if you want to live!"
The was surely the most epic moment yet, and I literally laughed out loud when I heard it.
The second bit of discussion was about Eugene's middle name. It took Jack quite a while to figure out, as he said almost all regular names. However, Eugene eventually pointed out his middle name was Ben, prompting an outrage from Jack. He had thought that he said that name a few minutes ago, but Eugene pointed out that he didn't.
It ended with Jack quite angry at Eugene, but they still love each other. However, my next run will involve a trip to Professor Van Ark's place to further investigate the start of the zombie outbreak. It will surely be a nice run, considering it will span ten kilometers.
Until next time, see you later!
