Welcome to Terminus. “Sanctuary for all. Community for all. Those who arrive survive.” . .
Glancing back at Lilly, his mouth pulled into a thin line as he felt his jaw clench. She looked pale, and even though she’d reassured him countless times that she was fine, he worried. How could he not? It’d been, by his best estimate, close to four weeks since they’d left Meghan’s body buried beneath the orange soil in the shade of a lilac bush on that hillside. He never should have left — He shook this thought from his mind. He’d been through it all before. The should haves and maybe ifs. Thoughts like that were poisonous, and they couldn’t afford the antivenin. Instead, he paused and turned to face Lilly, Waiting until she was within reach, he pulled her to himself fr the briefest of moments and let his arms wrap around her back. Stepping back, he tipped her chin up and looked into he eyes. Tomorrow. He said.
But the tomorrows kept coming with no way of knowing if they were any closer to their destination. Even though he knew that their pace had been slow these past few days — every step felt as thought it drained into their bones and sucked the energy right out — they had to be close. He’d never been much good with maps, but surely they’d stumble over that star labelled terminus before too much longer.
That night, he took watch as Lilly slept lightly against his shoulder. In the trees, he could hear squirrels and other creatures skittering through the night and his stomach clenched down on itself. Maybe this would be the last night spent this way, he told himself.
Though he had no way of knowing it, that was the last night he and Lilly would have to spend on the road. The next day, around noon judging by the sky, they stumbled upon a white wooden sign.
Those who arrive, survive
What had been declared to be two miles later, they walked in through open gates into the end they’d been chasing. Clutching the butt of his rifle, he slowly raised it and let the metal settle in his palm. Though beggars couldn’t afford to be choosers, he also couldn’t be too careful. Nodding towards Lilly, he watched her stop in place as he took two long strides forward. “Hello?” he called out. “Hello? We followed this map — it brought us here. Is this Terminus?”
