We reached the village by mid-morning. We’d seen it all already through the cameras on our drones. There was nothing left to discover on the outside of the buildings. Each of us was burning to know if there were something or someone inside of any of them.
Lyle took point this time and I covered. All the homes in the outskirts on this side were empty.
We’d been moving at a good clip, but once we hit the Main Street area we bogged down.
There was so much to check. We still have not encountered a soul. And our search for foodstuffs proved a little more rewarding.
Only completed half our search because an alert required a rotating watch.
