CJ was half asleep when she heard the radio message. She had been looking around for any scraps of food that she had previously overlooked, when she decided she had earned a lie-down on her 'bed'. However, it was not long before she began to drift off. Luckily, the radio message interrupted her doze and brought her back to her senses. She instantly sat bolt upright at the sound of another voice, which caught her brain off guard so she took a few seconds to realise what was happening. Once she had, she ran over to the radio on the table and listened intently.

Food? Water? This was too good to be true and CJ had to take a moment to make sure she wasn't dreaming. But then the words "Beyond the city" echoed in her head. She hadn't left the old department store in years. It felt safe there and there was everything she needed; food, water, shelter... even some old clothes remaining in some of the shops. Admittedly, the food was very old and a lot of the time she ended up eating dead animals lying around that she was able to cook on a shoddy fire.

But was it really necessary for her to leave? As previously mentioned, there was everything she needed there... Though it wouldn't last forever. CJ had noticed recently that the old water supply that she had been using was drying up quickly. The more she thought about it, the more appealing the prospect of this 'New Heaven' sounded. It was a big decision to make, but she knew she couldn't wait around forever and at some point she would have to face the big, bad world.

Breathing in deeply, CJ rummaged through her satchel to make sure it had everything in it before slinging it over her shoulder. She walked over to the door and took hold of the handle. Thoughts raced through her mind as she closed her eyes briefly. 'This is it...' She thought, slowly opening the door. 'This is my chance for a fresh start.'
