“Alright, I’ll take point.” Mackenzie said, “Matty, you stay in the middle with Tim, Al in the back. Any objections?”
“Nope, sounds good to me.” Al said, moving back slightly to give the other three more room to maneuver. “I’ve only got about half a belt left though, and it’s our last box, so if shit hits the fan you’ll only have me for a short moment.”
“I’ll make the best of it.” Mackenzie said, smiling.
Mackenzie moved up, remaining crouched and behind vehicles as he did so. The others followed suit in the organization they had agreed upon, and slowly but surely they made their way toward the unknown once again.
