He felt his breath catch in his chest when she kissed him. Not that it had been a particularly stunning kiss, at first. But it was shocking to go from running for your life to suddenly being kissed by a girl who hadn't show that much interest in him. At least not of a serious kind of interest. He took a gentle hold of her arm at the second kiss and smiled a little dumbly at her for a moment after she pulled back. He was certain he'd not just imagined that because he hadn't been thinking about it at all. So unless he was really starting to go crazy, it had actually happened.

Ioan floundered for a moment, feeling a little flustered, but genuinely pleased nevertheless. He snorted a slightly undignified laugh at her explanation of why she'd kissed him. "Attractive stranger, huh?" he asked with his slightly sly grin, glad that he was a little flush faced from the fight and the run so the tiny blush those words had caused in him wasn't horribly noticeable. His hand lifted up from her arm to cup her face for a moment. "I'm all for living while we can." He chuckled and dropped his hand from her face once he noticed how bloody it was. He gave her an apologetic look for that before rubbing the gore off on his jeans.

"Whenever you want," he went on, turning away a little bit and gesturing her after him. "We should get moving though. As nice as resting would be..." His tone implied a little bit of rest with other sorts of distractions involved, but was still joking. He never wanted to seem too serious about it. He stayed less flustered that way, after all. And less likely to get hurt. Not that he thought that Amy was going to hurt him, but it was better to play it safe.

"Oh... shut it you." Amy whacked lightly on the arm at his comment, hoping that blaming him would take attention away from the fact that she was blushing because she had called him attractive she hadn't meant to say that. With dramatic flair she rolled her eyes, hand resting on the spot where it had hit him for the while. "You need to get rid of some of that hot air. You chose to harp on about my accidental... compliment instead of me kissing you?" Not that it was all that special, she knew. But that grin was doing strange things to her that made it had to not completely hate him and his pigheadedness. Never mind his hand on her face, which he unfortunately dropped to his leg to clean a little. She hadn't minded the dirt, really what difference did it make now she was all covered in it?

She followed after him, though her scoff let him know that his tone of voice hadn't gone completely unnoticed. "Rests with that type of resting aren't the most... restfull now are they?" Wow. Smooth there, Amy.

He looked over his shoulder at her and chuckled some. "Why should I harp on you about a kiss?" he asked still chuckling a little, sounding the slightest bit breathless still. "It was a good kiss. There's nothing to harp on about that." He let her question hang in the air a moment, actually thinking before he said something, which was a little strange for him. But in his defense, of himself, he was looking out for zombies at the same time. "Well...they might not be restful, but they are satisfying."

The rest of the day was rather less eventful, the pair of them managing to make it a decent distance without being penned in or cornered. They'd had to take down a few more of the undead on the way, but nothing like their little pack they'd encountered in the morning. Before it became dark though, Ioan mentioned they should start to look for a safe place to stay for a few hours at least, hopefully the night. When they were in a place that seemed mostly empty he headed for what he hoped was an empty building.

He made his way up towards a door that seemed to be half blocked. Which was a hopeful sign that they could secure it a bit better themselves. "Be very alert," he said to her, even though he knew she knew. But he felt better about their chances if her reminded her, as stupid as it was.

Amy was tired. The reduced hours of sleep, the fear of 'what's around the corner' and the subsequent bashing of heads after they discovered just what, and of course the running had gotten to her and she was more than ready for a rest when Ioan suggested the very idea. While his little reminder actually did have her perking up, tightening her grip on her stick and becoming more awake, she sneered at him. "I thought I was going to just wander on in like it's home, make myself some poptarts and watch TV," she drawled, following him over the half-blocked door into the inside of the house. She shouldn't have said that. Her fingers ached for a cigarette and she almost reached up into her bag to take one of the few she had left, but she stopped herself, sent an apologetic look to Ioan. "Sorry."

They split up to check out the first floor; it wasn't a particularly large house, so if things went wrong help would be quick. She went through each room off the hallway carefully, checking each closet, closing doors behind her and moving slowly but surely through her half of the house. At first it was hard to open the first room, to burst in ready to bash a monster and allow herself to feel relief at finding none, but it got easier. Amy checked the kitchen, the dining room and a bathroom until her sweep ended at the laundry room. She walked to the back door and made sure that the haphazardly nailed planks really did hold true before walking a little easier back to the central hallway, foot tapping on the bottom stair while she waited for Ioan.

He was either taking forever or she had moved very fast. "I"m going to check out upstairs!" she threatened, taking the first step up. By the way she hadn't heard any shuffling about upstairs she guessed it was empty. The downstairs hadn't been in use for a long while and squatters were more likely to have let themselves been known than keep quiet. The few dressers and bookcases that half-heartedly blockaded the upstairs along with the lack of shuffling she'd heard while walking about gave her hope that there were no zombies here either, but they had to make sure.

Ioan moved cautiously through his portion of the first floor, glad to have someone there to cover his back. Even if he still wasn't 100% sure of her skills. She held herself well earlier in the day, but that didn't mean she'd be as good totally on her own. He had to give her the chance though, or he'd always doubt her some. And that doubt could cost him his life even if she was competent enough to handle things on her own. He listened to the sounds of her footsteps as best he could, keeping track of her where she went so he didn't have to think that the sound was something that was out to eat the both of them.

He stood in the livingroom once he was sure it was clear, looking at what had been left behind. There were still pictures there, blankets left on the couch like someone had taken a nap and had just gotten up to get a drink. These people hadn't fled. He'd been in some houses, ran into some people who'd packed their pictures with them when they'd left. They had thought them important and had underestimated the thread that the undead posed to them and their ability to stay alive and keep their physical memories with them. These people had just stayed locked in, barricading themselves as best they could and hoping that whatever this thing was going on outside their safe home walls would pass soon and everything would go back to normal. That hadn't worked at his apartment and he doubted that it had worked very well here either. Just hopefully there weren't any of them left here for him and Amy to deal with.

Her voice brought him out of his thoughts and he turned and hurried to catch up with her. It wasn't had with his long legs and soon he was standing behind her at the foot of the stairs looking up. He'd made no effort to mask his footsteps so she knew it was him coming up behind her and not something else. "Hey maybe they had a laptop or something that's still got a charge," he offered, following in her wake as they went up the stairs. "They've got a nice DVD collection, maybe we can get half an hour of a movie or something." He doubted that was likely, but he could hope. Anything to give a break from the nightmare they were living in. He'd take half an hour of a rom-com to be free of thinking too deeply about how much they were fucked just then.
