By the time they reached New Colorado City, dark was just skimming across the horizon. Nick had become restless, tossing and moaning with every turn of the wagon.
After bypassing his apartment building, Todd continued a few miles more to the home of a doctor, who’d treated him and other sentries in the past.

“Be home, be home,” he chanted as he pounded against the door. Next to it hung a sign reading “Warren Oberon, MD.”

“They used this. They branded him with this! They held him down and forced a kid that had nothing but water to drink his entire life to drink half a bottle of their moonshine, and then they tied him down and used this on him!” Todd shook the branding iron again.
