Camping trip #1

Post by JackSkulls » Thu Oct 22, 2020 3:33 am

Timelined the weekend after Tony's Dead Hooker

Chris finally made it to his camping site, set down his cooler, and shrugged off his packs with a sigh. He missed being out in the woods. He didn't even care that it was still cold out. It was a perfect way to get his mind off everything that had happened a few nights before with Rogue, Carol, and the President...

He shook his head violently trying not to remember the naked president making out with Rogue. Especially since that bothered him way more than it should have. He let out a sigh and started to set up his tent so he could throw the rest of his gear in there.

The next step to his quest for a good weekend was getting a fire built. He’d have to go out and chop some wood before that, so he grabbed his hatchet and went to find a decent-sized dead tree to cut down some branches, and possibly more.

Cutting wood was one of his go-to frustration killers. Chris didn't know why he was so bothered, Rogue was just a friend. He should be happy that she's happy. He'd chopped himself enough wood to last him the whole weekend in just a few hours and hadn't even noticed it.

“Welp... something's buggin me.” He sighed and started to build his campfire. It didn't take long for him to have it burning and he set his camping chair near enough to it to keep warm and so he could mess with it. “Nope, nothing’s wrong… Nothing at all.” He sighed and opened the cooler that was packed full of beer. Chris was just going to let himself get drunk as best he could and zone out for a few days.

Chris let his mind just empty as he played with the coals and moved logs and sticks around with a stick in his hand. Everything just seemed to melt away for Chris while he was out in the woods camping. It was his happy place. The world just seemed right when he didn't have anything to worry about. He was going to have to make sure he did this far more often. Or… he’d have to actually deal with the issues in his head. Like why he still could see the blood on his hands sometimes.
