My thanks to our author on fleshing out the pre war universe of Endtown…….To those suspecting APEX you would be right.Holly and Lyn are being watched.They were in the area of a known mutation and Lyn was grabbed by it. It would be in the best interest of APEX to “monitor” these two for any changes…….I would even suspect Holly’s friends being in on watching them and also being used by APEX as a sort of mass experimentation.In our own universe things were done on the public. Back in the Civil Defense days they had to know these things so releasing a foul chemical odor and following the reports of it as folks call it in. Check the spread via weather and wind patterns. I use to wonder did the government do this with the flu……watch the spread pattern over a city environment. I know personally in the military they hit us one time with something. About twenty of us soldiers spread out over an area with instructions to stay put where we were assigned. I was in a truck under a camo tent. This chopper was flying about in the dark zipping over at low level. I got sick with flu like symptoms and reported to the hospital. They gave me a shot, took down the info on my location and duty prior to getting sick and sent me back to the barracks. I was well in two days. Funny I only got sick after that chopper buzzed the area.
