Nathan woke up at around 9:00 am in the morning.
He was thirsty so he immediately got up from bed.
When he got up, he also noticed that he was feeling better, although not 100%. Based on his estimation, it was probably only around 60% because his ribs still hurt.
'Heh~ My 17 vitality is this effective? Perhaps if I could find another healing potion or rest 2-4 days I will be fine.'
He went to the kitchen.
He found the jug of water he left on the table yesterday and drank from it.
This time around, the pain on his ribs was bearable that he didn't cough out the water he drank.
He started to feel hungry and he wanted to smoke.
He opened the fridge to find some food. Inside were a few vegetables and eggs. There was also some meat but it already had a funny smell.
Well, after being kept on the fridge for more than a day with no electricity to power the fridge, of course, it will start to smell.
He took 3 eggs and ate them raw. He felt lazy to cook and believe that he would have a hard time swallowing solid foods as his ribs still hurt a bit.
He sat on the kitchen and was thinking about what to do.
He wanted to smoke, like so bad.
He also thought about the possibility of the water being contaminated.
Although he feels fine now, he's sure that he will only hurt himself if he did any strenuous activities.
'Why don't I check the apartments of the other tenants? I might find something interesting,' he thought.
As far as he knows, the building had 4 floors and 6 apartments on each floor.
After picking a shirt from his room to wear and the Short Dagger, he went out of his apartment to check out the other apartments.
The door was left opened so he entered right away. Of course, he was currently invisible.
Although he believes that those armed men from yesterday killed the zombies when they swept the area, he still wouldn't take chances.
In his mind, what if there was a zombie rat, cat, dog or whatever creature is it? Sure, he hasn't encountered one yet, but what if? It would be too late for regrets. And especially considering his injury, he would be a fool not to be cautious about it.
The overall space was identical to his apartment. The only difference is the furniture.
He started to check the area: living room, kitchen, the 3 bedrooms, all parts of the apartment.
Unfortunately, he didn't find anything useful except for some batteries and a flashlight.
It's been a while now since he started checking apartments and gathering things. Right now, he was on his way to the last apartment.
So far he found some junk foods, eggs, canned foods and bottled waters from the other apartments. In addition to that, he also found a knife shoulder holster for his Short Dagger (Finally!), a large leather fanny pack (He needs it for potions…), mini binoculars, 3 laptops, 2 tablets and an iPod that still had juice along with its chargers, a first aid kit, flashlights (different sizes), rope, batteries, a few packs of cigarettes, some DVDs.
The large bag he was carrying was already full as fuck.
Although he found some alcohol, given his current health and the situation he was in, he dared not to touch it and just ignored it. He needed his mind to be sharp.
He even found some candles and emergency lights but decided that those things will only serve as a beacon if he uses them at night. Only god knows what kind of humans it will attract. Hell, they could be killers, cannibals or booty warriors.
As for the other items that he found but didn't bother taking, these were things like an ax, knives, headgears, etc. These things were basically useless in his eyes, especially the weapons because they were not part of the system.
Thinking about not being able to candles and the emergency light at night, he started to wonder if it's really worth it being a solo hunter. It seems rather inconvenient.
The way he sees it, having a group has its advantages. One of those advantages is not worrying about making noise and having light during the night. Of course, that is if your group has set up a nice camp/base and has capable members to defend it anytime.
However, the downside of being part of the group is that you have to share resources and there's always a chance that they might betray you due to whatever reasons. Furthermore, escaping alone during a group crisis isn't really an option unless you're a cold and selfish bastard that has no intention of returning to the group.
On the other hand, being a solo hunter also has its advantages. You own all the loots, you don't have to care about anyone, and you can travel anywhere and anytime at a moment's notice. However, you must be powerful, knowledgeable, smart and lucky to take on the life of a solo hunter. Yes, luck plays a big part too.
When he entered the last apartment, he was surprised because it really looked comfy and had an awesome entertainment system – too bad there was no electricity though. Moreover, there was also a collection of comics and light novels.
Whoever lived here must've really spent a lot.
Nevertheless, he decided to stay here because it looked really comfy and there were things to keep him entertained in the meantime while he waited for his full recovery.
He decided to eat lunch (raw eggs again) because it was already 2:30 PM and smoked a few cigarettes.
After that, he took a laptop and some tissues with him to watch a movie inside one of the bedrooms...
Nathan spent 2 days on the apartment.
