Tonney Cooper pulled the old discarded jacket on. Stuffing his hands in the front pockets, he was surprised to find an old COVID-19 mask from 2020 in one of them.
“What a strange year that was,” he thought as he set the mask aside and stretched his arms to see how well it fit.
Though unable to button it, he slipped out the back door of the derelict home. Tonney Cooper had several miles to go as he crossed the wasteland once known as Reno while staying in the shadows to avoid the other scavenging survivors and the United Nation patrols.
