A year and two weeks, if you are keeping track of time.
Armed with the knowledge gathered by “The Professor” the main character party is heading towards a prison not too far from Peterborough. On the road again but with purpose and hope the band of survivors are making good progress, with Whisper and Nicholas scouting ahead many dangers have been avoided so far.
The exception was one night as the weather came in hard and the dead seemed to be everywhere, in the horror two of the party were separated. The next day as the skies cleared many compared it to the night in Sanctuary.
It took some very serious convincing for Simon and John to stop searching, more dead were coming and the group had to move on. Bex reassured them both that she saw Oscar and Beth running off together in the darkness away from danger. How true that is time will tell.
Although most of the physical injuries are healed the events of Leicester have clearly left a mark on several of the group.
