Surya turned, focused her flashlight on Marion, who was standing with his shotgun resting on his shoulder and his other hand flat on the closed lid of a chest freezer.

"Where's it getting power?"

It was just plugged into the wall. Maybe the house had solar panels. "I dunno. I dunno." He  opened the lid: it was empty except for a box of ice cream sandwiches. "There's ice cream."

"What?" She was suddenly at his elbow.

He opened the box, counted. "Eight. Four each."

"Eat one now. We'll come back once a week for the others."
