Cannibalism within the Garbage|
It was quiet as I entered the Garbage. I could hear a pack of blind dogs in the distance, but little else was heard. As I entered through the gate, I saw bodies littered around the wreaked cars that sat there. I slowly crouched behind a truck and scanned the area. My PDA wasn’t flashing any numbers at me, indicating I was alone. The bodies were of bandits and the military, a violent standoff seemed to have taken place. I wasn’t sure which side had won, but I didn’t really care, I just wanted what was once theirs. I scavenged through their bodies, mainly taking ammo and a few rations. My gun was better than any I found, and I was to overloaded to grab anything for the trader.
After I finished scavenging, the car park was my next stop. The remaining guards were doing their regular patrols, but seemed happy to see me. After our last run in with bandits, everyone seemed to be respecting me for the bandit lives I have taken. I scavenged through the corpses, trying to find items I have missed before. As I went to leave the camp, I turned to wave to a friend of mine who was playing the guitar. No matter how many mutants I killed, or how many lives I have ended, what I saw horrified me to no end. I knew food was scarce from the radiation poising, but I didn’t realize we had such a problem with it. I had at least twenty rations stashed in my pack. What I saw was the men roast another on an open flame. It was as if he was just another boar in the Zone. Glancing around, I saw all the men staring at me with something dark in their eyes. I didn’t try to reason or fight, but all I remember was running towards the hanger.
I haven’t seen anything like that since and I hope to never see it again. I write this in hopes others in the Zone will not just stay away from the car park, but acknowledge food seems to be a problem. Hopes this was just a rare occurrence and this is not a problem deeper within the Zone.
