Dennis and Mac are at a gas station and Mac is inside and hears a noise. He calls for Dennis because a person with the plague comes out of the bathroom he trows a can at the plagued person and they collapsed. Then a little kid comes out of the other bathroom where he has been hiding and asks if the plague person is gone. Dennis and Mac bring him with them, happy to have found another survivor, to find the girl Anna that they heard on the radio.
They find Anna in a rural area in a house. The door to the house has been smashed open and a plagued person is inside and has hurt her leg. She jumps into the truck and they drive off. They drive for a long time and eventually stop for rest in a forest, but when Mac wakes up, Anna is gone!
I believe that Anna has gone half crazy with the plague and run off, but not attacked. They will probably be confused and upset, but know that they must continue on their journey to find safety from the plague. They may eventually lose Jerimiah as well. I beleive that there will be little resolve of suspense in the next story.
