After driving for what feels like endless days, Alex and the gang stops in Great Bear. A small town surrounded by mountains and filled with outdoorsy sims.
“We should look for a place to lay low for a few days. Gather supplies and figure out our next move.” RJ suggests and everyone happily agrees that it’s time to take a break from the road.
Jayden and Alex have only grown closer. They are thinking of getting married and starting a family but with inmates for friends, the peace never last long. A few days into their stay in Great Bear, Ronnie just can’t help himself and tries to mug an old lady. His arrested by the town sheriff Rick Grimes.
“I’ve been onto you five since you rolled up at the diner. This is my town, you really think anything happens without me knowing?”Sheriff Grimes asked Ronnie as he walked him into the police station.
It was up to Alex to bail Ronnie out and try to smooth things over with the sheriff until they had everything they needed to move on. That night, Sheriff Grimes makes a unexpected house call that has all the inmates on edge.
He tells Alex that they are looking for four asylum inmates that escaped from Sunset Valley. Alex explains that although Ronnie has a bit of a problem leaving other sims things alone, they don’t know much about escaped inmates.
“Where did you come from?”
“Bridgeport. Enjoyed a few nights in the city and now we are heading back to collage.” Alex gives the sheriff a nervous smile.
“Mmm. And what are you doing in Great Bear?”
“Oh well we thought we might do a hike. Great trails around here and I hear the fishing is pretty good this time of year.” The sheriff smiles and nods. Good thing Alex was listening to the locals talk when they were at the diner.
“Well you kids be careful out there then and if you see any funny looking folks, give me a call. Oh, and do remind your friend to keep his hands to himself. Next time, I’ll throw his ass in jail and forget about him.”
Alex agrees and is relieved to know that not only have they not been made as the inmates, his misdeeds in Northeney has not yet reached this far.
“Alex! Come quick. There’s something on the news about Sunset Valley.” RJ calls from the porch.
“Good evening, further events concerning the virus that ravaged Sunset Valley have unfolded. Marshal law has now been declared on the streets of Sunset Valley. The death toll continues to rise and citizens are resorting to desperate acts of crime to survive.
Scientists have reported that the virus is strongly believed to lie dormant in host sims who contain a genetic resistance to it. Anyone who comes in direct contact with the host becomes a carrier who must either develop antibodies to force the virus back into dormancy or their bloodstream is poisoned leading to organ shutdown and death. The survival rate in humans is 1 out of every 12 infected. There have been very few reported cases in the supernatural community. Scientists are calling it the “T-12 Virus” but survivors in Sunset Valley are rumored to have given it a very different name, “The Doomsday Virus”.
Sheriff Grimes excuses himself, mumbling something about his son Carl. For a moment, everybody just sits around. Too shocked to talk.
“Guys, we need to go now. We need to find a place to settle down before this virus hits.”Ronnie says and gets up.
“You don’t really think it’s going to spread do you? I mean, the government will sort this out.”Reggie says but her voice is shaky. Even she doesn’t believe what she’s saying.
“We’ve all been in government institutes. How well did that go?”Alex asks.
They all agree that it’s time to go. They decide to head to Grey Meadows. An industrial town that has run empty after the economy took a turn and most factories closed. Less sims, less virus.
