    We're Alive, a story of survival, Chapter 2, The Two Things.

    Michael
    Nothing used to scare me. I didn't fear death and what might be there on the other side if today was my day. That was then and this is now.
    (Beat)
    We arrived on the top floor after four hours of going through the rest of the building. My eyes were starting to blur, so it took several attempts to bring down the last of those things we found on the ninth floor. There would be time to rest later. We only have one more to go.

    MICHAEL (NARRATOR):
    Nothing used to scare me. I didnít fear death, or what might be there on the other side if today was my day. That was then, and this is now. Four hours of going through the building left my legs aching. My eyesight blurred so bad that it took several attempts to bring down the one we found on the 9th floor. We were tired, but we kept moving forward. There would be time to rest later. Our searching was almost over. We were finally at the top floor.

    Roof access was going to be a problem, but we could deal with it later. A man with a twitchy trigger finger was the least of my worries. It's amazing what you can do past the point of exhaustion. Everyone could barely find their feet. But, they knew what was at stake.
    (Beat)
    We each pulled our part. Putting furniture and doors from upstairs apartments over panes of glass windows. We worked as quietly as we could. Each strike of a nail could be heard by one of those things beyond the darkness. We were lucky that night. Just one of those had seen us, it might have all been over.

    See, that is why I wanted to talk to you. I was thinking maybe we should have a little store or something that we keep everything valuable. That way we know what we have and what we need. If someone gets hurt, and we need antibiotics, we wouldn't go looking through every room to find it.
