The Road

How do I know you're one of the good guys?
You dont. You'll have to take a shot.
Are you carrying the fire?
Am I what?
Carrying the fire.
You're kind of weirded out, arent you?
Just a little.
That's okay.
So are you?
What, carrying the fire?
Yeah. We are.
Do you have any kids?
We do.
Do you have a little boy?
We have a little boy and we have a little girl.
How old is he?
He's about your age. Maybe a little older.
And you didnt eat them.
You dont eat people.
No. We dont eat people.
And I can go with you?
Yes. You can.
Okay then.
