Two women have found each other in the aftermath of the plague, forming a close bond – and something of a dependency. The younger woman, Wendy, forages for food for both of them, but has no hunting skills, while the older woman’s home provides shelter for both. Wendy ventures out to search for food and has the misfortune to meet Tom Price. Still a vagrant after leaving Wormley’s movement, he’s become a self-proclaimed “procurement” expert – he gets what people need, and they give him something he needs in exchange. There’s something very specific he wants from Wendy in exchange for food, but he soon finds out that she’s not willing to negotiate for that. Abby leaves her traveling companions to defend the old woman from a pack of feral dogs, until Tom – still on Wendy’s trail – finds the house and holds them at gunpoint. In the meantime, Greg and Jenny may have discovered an abandoned country estate that could well serve as a permanent base of operations.
