Marcus 'Zeke' Kinkade
Zeke looked to the others as they made a new arrangement around the idea of a distraction, he wasn't the best shot with a bow, he'd tried it some time before but he was a quick learner and he remembered the basics and proper form. Plus the bow he picked up was of top grade hunting quality, not some cheap fool around one. Agreeing to the plan, he followed the others to keep track of things, but caught sight of Paulo and dallas kissing......that was a new one. Wouldn't expect their new farm boy to go tail chasing, but who was he to judge, hell, he might even give them a novelty item for use later. He smirked at the idea as he got to the window needed. He adjusted the quiver on his person and pulled the bow free, pulling and laxing the string a few times, practicing his form and footing in relation to the window. He did a quick look over of the bow and the arrows, noting areas he knew were important and how they affected flight of an arrow. All this keeping in mind might getting him to shoot better. Plus general physics, the arrow would dip after a distance, so he would need to ark his shot.
Once the room was filled by the others and Paulo was holding the window open, he pulled an arrow free from the quiver and slid it along the rest of the handle, clicking the back of the arrow onto the string properly, and then finally, pulling back on the line, loading the bow. He took a few breathes aligning his eyesight and then angling his shot for the ark he thought best. He would miss with the first one for sure, but getting it as close as possible he'd have a better judge of how to correct the second one. He loosed the arrow and it flew free. He gritted his teeth and grunted under his breath as his right hand shot to the inside of his left forearm. The string had dragged across the skin there. He forgot he'd need a guard there. But he didn't take his eyes off the arrow as it flew, and it did get close, hitting near the car to the left. Slapping his arm, he had no time to fret over a rub burn, pulling another arrow, he loaded the bow, and with the correction needed, loosed the arrow, gritting again, but laxing his arm. Her watched as the arrow flew, and hot straight into the windshield of the car they selected, a nice new red dodge camry. And as expected, the alarms went off without a hitch, what he didn't expect, was the reaction as another car alarm went off with it, the car infront of it.And then the swarm of walkers heading for those cars. All attention was off the house completely and hank. For the moment.
With a level of dread, he, like hank, forgot the group mentallity of zombies, the video game conquerer that zeke was should have remembered such a simple trait. "6 walkers.....we'll need to try to take them out quietly." He said, pulling off his shirt and wrapping it around his left fore arm to protect his arm, exposing the lean muscle he had, not the biggest builds, but lean, and refined, made more prominent from the fact his body had eaten all the fat he had, his skin stretched over his muscle. If they hadn't eaten tonight, then it might have been soon that, like the major, his body would start eating the muscles. Looping the bow across his chest, he looked to the others. "If hank is doing what I think he is, He'll try to deal witht hem around the backside of the house, out of sight of the other walkers. someone get downstairs and keep an eye on the back door. I need to keep a constant eye on them. If you all can, try to find some way to help them, but be quiet and stay out of sight." He spoke, quickly and quietly walking out of the room to another room on the side of the house without walkers, climbed out the window and up onto the roof, staying low to the roof, keeping an eye on them Once he had a shot that he knew he wasn't going to get spotted, he'd take it. Bow and an arrow ready to be loaded.
