s this guy?” questioned John with an angry face.
“This is Tony, he can help us get to the rocket,”replied Jackie terrified for what John may say next.
“No!” screamed John, “We are going to get there on our own. We don’t need help from some stranger.”

They didn’t stop during the ride, even when zombies were in the middle of the road John refused to stop and went right through them.
