This is a redo of an old story with better tech & characters. There is a longer back story, but I'll keep it short and hope the images tell the story. Thank you for your visits and if you only have time to read this, I appreciate your views.
Raggedy Man: "Charity, you need to get off these streets. There is something out here, and it's hunting us. At first it was just dog's and cat's going missing. Now it's people. Old 'Bandit Mike's' been gone three days, and now someone else is living in his tent. I think it be those damned Alien's got him. They're always probing someone up the 'azz' you know."
Charity: "Raggedy Man, I worry about you. Why won't you go to the V.A.? They have medicine that can help you? Please go see a doctor for me."
Raggedy Man: "Raggedy don't need a damn thing from them. I got everything I need right here in my cart. Now you go girl. I don't want to think those bastard's got you too."

Nice image and story... Sometimes its hard to find a balance between going into too much background and keeping things short enough to hold the reader's interest.

Very well written, Dag. The image conveys the narrative exceptionally well.
Your story is short, sweet and to the point... covering much detail in a few words and doesn't leave your audience guessing what's going on. I saw quite a few 'Easter eggs' in your story line that others may have missed, but there were two that for me, that stood out the most.
In my view, you've portrayed Raggedy as a former combat veteran that has seen quite a lot of action and suffers from PTSD due to that fact. Because of his condition, there are many who may see him as a 'bit crazy'. But as a combat vet, he has learned to observe his surroundings and notice things others will often overlook.
Raggedy's interaction with Charity conveys to me that he probably see her as a daughter figure and is concerned about her. When he tries to give her a little bit of 'fatherly' advise, like many younger people (I'll even include myself at that age), she sees it as words from a crazy/paranoid old man, that she too cares deeply about, who forgot to take his daily meds. Something tells me in the future, she'll come to realize he's not as crazy as she first thought.
As an aspiring writer myself, I am more of a full page 'novelist' in style. Though I'm sure that turns some off because it too long, there are others who do appreciate it. I grew up reading authors like Heinlein, Bradbury, Asimov, etc., that had to use words to create the scene. And even now that I have DAZ to create scenes, I still heavily invoke their influence in my stories.
Sorry to be so long winded (but remember, that's my style 😊), I look forward to more installments to not only see how the story progresses but also to see how the characters progress. Take care, my friend... and keep writing!
