Jak continued on his lonely journey through town. He’d was slowly convinced that Justin, Chase, and Mannie were killed or they reached the safe point. He didn’t know where he was going but he kept going.
He stopped inside a small house. He searched for anything useful, or anything to eat. All he found was a can or beans. He cut the cap off and took a deep sigh ” this isn’t gonna go down too good… ” he then tipped his head back as he tipped the can over his mouth, slowly pouring the beans into his mouth. It had a nasty slimely feel to it but he kept eating it; he needed something in his system.
After resting up for abit he stepped outside. He heard some ruffling noise close by. Jak took his pistol out and kept his guard up. Jak peeked over the corner and he saw a hunter digging through the trash. He slowly moved back slowly away. His foot then hit a can which caused the hunter to look towards Jak. ” Fuck!!! ” Jak turned around and started running. The hunter then pounced up and landed on Jak, pinning him on his stomach. Before the hunter can even take one swipe at Jak, he was shot in the head. The hunter fell over, laying in its blood and brains.
Jak sat up and looked around. A few feet away, walking towards Jak, was the one and only Mannie. “…MANNIE!!! ” Jak stood up and ran towards her. He then place his hands on the side of her face and without any hesitation, he gave her one big kiss. He would then break the kiss and hugging her. She would return the hug. ” I am so glad you’re alive! ” She smiled as she started to shed a few tears. ” Im happy that you’re still alive.”
"Where are the others? " Jak said. Mannie shook her head and slowly looked down. " I dont know. we… got seperated… " " Are they ok? I mean… from the last time you saw them? " She nodded her head " Yea they are ok… I’m pretty sure they are doing well." Jak nodded. He took her by her hand and smiled. " C’mon…. lets go get some lunch… " Mannie giggled abit, walking by Jak’s side. " Where are we gonna find a place to get " lunch ". " Jak laughed abit " we’ll find something…eventually… "
" What do you think we’ll find? "
" I dont know…. hopefully… a big turkey or something.. "
They both laughed as they walked together again on their journey of survival.
Jak has been walking for days; hungry, tired, and feeling more depressed each second of his life. All he could ever think of is the site of killing his own family, and leaving his team. Jak came across an abandoned house and rushed over there to rest alittle. He entered the hous with cautious just to make sure this house was safe enough for him to camp. He walked into the kitchen to find a bag of cans and bags of food on the counter. He rushed over and without even thinking, just opened up the cans and bags and started to eat. He ate as if he never eaten in ages.
He then heard foot steps from above. Jak stopped, pulled out his pistol and sword and slowly approached the bottom of the stairs that lead upstairs. He looked up and it was a dark hall. He can still hear foot steps. Jak took the risk and banged the wall with his sword to create a loud enough noise for what ever or who ever was upstairs to hear. The foot steps stopped. I paused for a second and then took one step on the bottom steps. The stairs then make a creaking noise.
" Hello? " someone said. But it wasn’t just someone. I recognized that voice. " Mike… is that you? " There was a small pause.
" Jak ? "
" Yea….its me mike! "
Mike then came out into where Jak can see him. Mike then rushed down the stairs and brought his arms around Jak to give him a hug. ” Cat… come where.. It’s Jak! ” Catherine came poking out as well and rushed down to hug Jak. ” Oh my God! youre still alive! ” she said. ” Yea its good to see you guys too. ” I replied. ” What have you been doing? ” said Mike. ” I’ve been with…well was… my Team…”
" Your team? "
" Yea " Jak gave a small smile and laugh. " Had this team… was great… "
" Well What happened? "
" I…left…because we got into an argument. "
While Jak, Mike, and Catherine were talking and catching up, Justin, Mannie, and Chase were on foot again.
Chase - ” Where do you think Panda went off to? “
Mannie - ” Who knows… “
Justin - ” Well… where ever he is… he’s probably doing much better since he doesnt need us “
Chase - ” I dont think you know how Jak is guys.. “
Mannie - ” Trust me Chase… I know.. “
The group then heard a loud coughing noise from a distance. They froze in place with their guns ready looking high and low. ” Jockey ” Chase said hearing the jockey from another direction. Silence took over the horizon. The three standing back to back from each other. Jumping from above, a Jockey lands ontop of Chase’s shoulders and shield’s his eyes; pulling him away from the group. Mannie and Justin turns around to see the Jockey on Chase. The smoker pokes out from a truck and throws it’s tongue at Justin and wraps around his upper body and wrapping his arms to prevent him from shooting.
Mannie turns around and sees Justin was in trouble. Being stuck in pressure, a boomer pops out and barfs on Mannie. Mannie managed to kill the boomer. Chase also managed to kill the jockey by putting his pistol to the Jockey’s face and killing it. A horde of zombies smelled the boomer barf and started to rush the crew. Chase shot the smoker and killed it to release Justin. Justin and Chase then rushed over to Mannie to aid her with the zombies. They can feel something big coming towards them. After killing off the last of the horde, they heard a loud bang and a car flying right over their head and landing infront of the entrance to the safe house.
Justin - “…..TANK!!! “
They all turned around and the tank was a few feet away from them.
Mannie - ” Oh fuck! “
Justin - ” Yea kill it! “
They all took out their guns and started firing like crazy. The tank taking every hit, just kept running towards them. The tank took one good swing as he got closer and knocked Mannie off her feet, sending her flying 3 feet away from the group. The tank then looks at Justin and lifts it’s arm to bash Justin in, but Chase managed to jump on the tank’s back and stabbing it with his sword. The tank freaks out and starts to swing around. Chase tried to hang off, but the whip lashes knocked him off it’s back.
Chase get’s back up and pulls out his assault rifle out, but the tank already caught up and punched chased into a truck. Justin still shooting the tank with his sniper, the tank directs it’s attention towards justin and rushes him. Justin aims for the tank’s head and pulls the trigger, but nothing came out; he ran out of ammo. The tank stood infront of Justin and raised both its arms high, getting ready to finish what he tried to do earlier.
Close by Justin can hear the sound of a chain saw. The tank then drops its arms around and starts yelling in pain. The tank turns around and there Jak was; clinging on the tank’s back ramming the chainsaw into the back of the tank’s neck.
Jak - ” RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWRRR!!! DON’T FUCK WITH THE FUCKING PANDA!! “
Jak applied more pressure on the chainsaw and beheaded the tank. Jak hopped off of the tanks back and looked down at Justin. Chase and Mannie came back to the group and looked at Jak.
Justin - ” ….You…came back? “
Jak - ” Not quite….I forgot my backpack…Left all my bullets in my bag… “
Mannie came over and punched Jak in the jaw.
Mannie - ” Can you stop being a fucking dick all the time Jak! “
Jak looked at Mannie and smiled abit as he rubbed his jaw.
Jak - ” hey… I missed you too… and I didnt say I was leaving again… “
Chase came up to Jak and patted his shoulder.
Chase - ” Glad to have you back Panda.. I missed you..and I’m sure the others did too. “
Jak looked at Justin and Mannie and smiled abit.
Jak - ” Come on guys, You’re my team mates. I can never leave you guys. “
Jak threw his arms around Mannie and Justin giving them a hug. They all then formed a group hug.
Justin - ” Next time you want to be a jerk and leave us! let me kick your ass for a few first! “
Jak laughed abit and nodded
Jak - ” You sure only wanna kick my ass? “
Jak winked at Justin and laughed abit.
