Fragments Chapter 12 Page 1

It’s getting dark and as the survivors on the roof approach their 3rd day without food or water Tommy looks at the grocery store which seems to be staring back at them.

Packed with the food they need but separated by a seemingly impossible distance, and a seemingly certain death should they attempt to get to it, the shop seems to Tommy to be almost mocking him. A large red sign with the words “Half Price Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream” hangs in the front window. “Half price” - the hook to draw you into the lake so the piranhas could get you.

The hunger pains seem to have increased suddenly at the idea of Ice Cream now being half price and he turns and looks at the others. Somebody needed to do something, otherwise they’d die here.
