Sherlock Holmes

Holtzmann watched him as he took care of the bite wound, grimacing and finding, for one of the very few times in her life, that she had nothing to say. No jokes, no quips, no flippant or dismissive comments: nothing came to mind. She was quieted by the sight of her own blood, and how bad the injury looked. It had looked bad already, from the first encounter with zombies, and she hadn't even been bitten then. She'd been impaled by a bolt from an explosion she caused, and a zombie happened to show up afterwards. Maybe Sarah Jane had been right when she warned Holtz to take good care of the wound.

Maybe it wouldn't have been as appealing to the zombies here if she had.

Not usually one for regrets, Holtzmann just grimaced and nodded along to Sherlock's words as he finished bandaging the injury and apologized for not having anything for the pain. She gave him a pale, shaky smile and a wink that was more confident than she felt, grinning without the usual light that came to her eyes when she honestly felt the bravado she was portraying.

"I'll try to avoid being another tasty snack for something, but I can't help how delicious I look," she said, reaching for the water bottle and nodding her head in appreciation. "Is there anything you don't have in that bag? A chainsaw, maybe? Those are particularly effective on rotting bodies. Or so I've heard."

She took a little sip of the water, but her stomach felt upset and she quickly closed the bottle again. She took a slow breath, testing her strength as she got to her feet, then looked around thoughtfully.

"Zombies, unlike heat, probably don't rise that well: upstairs might be a better pick to start with. We have to find a portal like the one we fell through, right? I wonder what causes them to spawn. Hopefully not a boss fight or a virgin sacrifice. Unless that bag of yours really does have everything in it."

Sherlock shrugged, he was one to always be prepared, and often carried around things with him in his bag that most would find unnecessary or silly even. Of course it was moments like this, finding himself tossed in yet another realm and facing dangers, that made his over preparation seem well worth it. Just the same, no matter how well prepared he was for most situations, he certainly hadn't been expecting to fall into a wasteland inhabited by hordes of zombies. He was after all well prepared, but not psychic.

"No chainsaw, I do however have some knives and a set of lock picks."
Granted he didn't imagine the lock picks would be needed, though he wasn't ruling it out either, it was possible they could come across a locked door between themselves and where they needed to get to. He just hoped that if they did need to get into some place locked, there weren't any quiet zombies waiting for them on the other side.

He took the water bottle back and took a drink himself, not too big, but a bit more than Jillian had drank. He didn't want to waste it, there was no telling if this place had running water, or where the nearest well or supply might be, and no telling how long they might be there, he didn't want to waste their current and only supply of fresh water. He nodded and glanced up the stairs, a door at the top, he adjusted the strap and put it over his shoulder, and grabbed the sword he'd found outside.

"Up we go then, if we can get up to the roof we may have a good enough vantage point to find an open portal. As often as the zombies have been appearing in Storybrooke, and the fact that so far we've yet to recognise any of the dead, they must be coming from here, well possibly, and if they are there must be open portals nearby to Storybrooke." He then started heading up the stairs as quietly as possible, though on the sixth step up it let out a creak sound loud enough to be heard. He stopped moving for a moment and listened intently all around him, especially at the to top of the stairs where they were headed.

He got to the top finally and placed his hand carefully on the door knob, listening intently into the room beyond. He looked back and mouthed to Jillian to be ready. With a deep breath he opened the door, the sword clenched in his hand and ready to bring it up into action if needed. They entered another hallway, an open door at the end of the hall, two closed doors on their right. A zombie was on the ground and starting to move trying to get up, but Sherlock was on it and had it stabbed through the head before it could get up.

Sherlock Holmes

"Knives and a lock pick? That sounds like my kind of party," Holtzmann grinned at him, though it was not quite as bright and big as it had been at the beginning of this whole ordeal, "or a violent robbery. Either way, it'll make the evening news."

Holtzmann walked with him slowly, nodding her head along to his explanations and thoughts, as if listening to some music instead. She stopped when he did, though, nodding almost seriously at his directions to be ready. Almost, as Holtzmann could never really let herself get too serious, too heavy. She was ultimately more scared of her feelings, of reality, than anything else, and worked very hard to avoid it by burying herself in all the things she loved the most, and all of her weird humors and quirks.

So far, it was working, but her walls and defenses had never come across zombies before. Or a magical realm, though the ghost realm was close in theory.

Even so, she put her hand lightly on his arm before he made to open the door, giving him a curious look halfway between 'be careful' and 'why are you taking so long'. It was the best she could to show she was, in fact, honestly worried. She'd been bitten already, and would not be great in a fight if he got himself hurt, too. Plus, she was pretty sure he was a really cool dude, and did not want to be responsible for getting him killed and eaten by the walking dead.

Watching him open the door, she hung back until the zombie he attacked was dead. She grimaced, walking to him and looking around cautiously. There might still be more, if one had been caught up here, though she doubted very many would be able to master stairs and doors on their own. She turned her gaze upwards, looking for any roof access, or a stairwell hidden in the roof to an attic.

Sherlock looked around, listened, then turned his attention back to Jillian but kept his voice down so that if there was any zombies on the other side of the open door at the end of the hall then they might not be alerted. From the looks of the building from the outside, it had a flat roof, and it looked like there was some sort of area or door that proved to him there had to be a way to get up there from the inside of the building. At least he hoped so because he really wasn't in the mood to climb out a window and try to shimmy up to the roof.

"Let's check out the door at the end first, it's already open so whatever may be beyond could already perfectly well come out here and find us, no point in opening closed doors if the open one is the one we need to get up to the roof." He looked at the bandage, seemed to holding up ok, but he was worried if they didn't get back to Storybrooke soon what kinds of infections might set in. Even if being bit didn't mean being turned into an undead corpses, he didn't imagine it was overly hygienic being bit by one, and that meant infection if they didn't get it properly cleaned and stitched. He walked towards the other end of the hall, cautiously but at a good pace. He peered in, and relaxed a bit, a few feet beyond the door was a steep set of stairs going up to what he could only presume was the roof access.

"Ah, yes, up we go, from up there we should be able to get a better idea of where there might be a portal, see all around this wasteland." He smiled and walked up, at the top he opened the door, not as cautiously this time since he hadn't noticed any zombies walking around on the roof when they first entered the building. He walked out and looked around. They could certainly see further from up here, not as far as a skyscraper might have allowed for, but whatever sort of place this was before the desolation didn't appear to have had any overly tall buildings to begin with.

"Why don't you look over there on that side, I'll look this way, see what we find out eh...."

Sherlock Holmes

Holtzmann nodded her head, but she was quieted now. Her mood had been altered by the gravity of the situation, and being injured. She just wanted to figure this place out, maybe find something good out about these zombies, and go home. Mostly the last part, in fact.

Even though her home was an old Cannery now filled with dangerous equipment that could theoretically explode at any moment, it was still safer and warmer than this place.

She followed him very slowly, but not due to caution. She was tired, and noted she was bleeding heavier than she wanted to admit. So, of course, she was not going to clue him in on it unless he asked. And by then, hopefully, they'd be out of this hell hole. Ghosts she liked: ghosts she could deal with and she felt she understood better than she understood herself and most other humans. Zombies were different, and they made her angry.

She was definitely going to come up with something good to kill them once she was back at her lab. Take out her anger on any she found wandering around town, trying to hurt people.

"Righto, Cap'," she said, wobbling to the edge of the roof and looking down. She saw more zombies, and some sort of well that had a dead body floating in it. There were trees and maybe a farm, but nothing that looked very lively at this point. This whole place was dead, as if the very ground had been tainted and everything standing on it destroyed. She shook her head in wonder, hoping that wouldn't happen to her new home.

Or her old one, come to think of it. Just how linked were these portals?

As Holtz went over to one side to look, Sherlock went to the opposite. From what he could tell the side he was facing was away from where they had just come, away from the zombies that had been chasing them. There seemed to be slightly less zombies in this direction as he looked out over the buildings and streets and rubble. He couldn't stop thinking about how badly Holtz was going to need more medical attention than he could give, he just hoped that if they did find a portal back to Storybrooke, that when they got there it would spit them out somewhere relatively close to the hospital. Though at this point he'd just be happy to be back in Storybrooke anywhere and far away from this zombie wasteland.

It was also going through his mind that perhaps he should report into someone, Emma the Sheriff perhaps, or David her deputy, maybe the Mayor or that magic pawn shop owner man. Someone else should know that this realm, wherever they were, was likely the point of origin from where all the zombies were coming from. He wasn't sure what good that knowledge would do them, it wasn't as if they could stop the portals, but knowledge was good no matter, a start, a point of origin, even if it did only provide more questions.

Just then he saw something out of the corner of his eye, off to the side, a light. He looked over and on the roof of the building next to them, was a portal, only they'd have to walk across a rather narrow board to get to the other roof, but it was close, which meant they were close to going back to Storybrooke.

"Jillian, over here, quickly before the portal closes again, help me get this board steady so we can get across to the other roof."
