    Summary

    He discovers the bunker at Sander’s Auto on a slow day while searching for spare parts he can use. It’s coated in decades of dust and musty from being closed up. It doesn’t have a shower - but it has electricity. Desert winter will hit in November, maybe December if he’s lucky. Previous winters he’d spent plenty of nights wasting gas to run the heater in his truck for an hour, turning it off until it gets too cold to stand and then turning it back on again to keep warm. He’s lucky both that his natural temperature runs hot and that he's immune to human illness. Not being able to get sick isn’t the same as not experiencing negative physical side effects from the cold, though. He’s also noticed his hand aches from it now.

    He spends his spare time cleaning the bunker. He splurges on a space heater and a folding cot. He spends his first winter after high school curled up by that space heater trying out the different alcohols he’d discovered collecting dust in one corner. Their effect is better when mixed with acetone. When he’s drunk he can almost forget how rotten life is.

    Summary

    Michael tries to adjust to life without Alex around and settle into life at the Roswell internment camp.

    -----------

    Michael's head is pounding by the time he makes it to the southeast corner of camp that’s designated as the market. The camp’s commissary marks the beginning of the market corner, and, while it has the basic necessities and even a little cafeteria line for Antarans who don’t have units with kitchens--or who just don’t care to cook, it’s a purely utilitarian space. The cavernous, sterile feel of the commissary, lit only by the harsh glare of fluorescent lights can’t compare to the bright, open-air hubbub of the market stalls. This was always one of Michael’s favorite parts of the camps, even if he didn’t have anything to spend, just watching the people was entertainment enough. It always reminded him of a bee hive, abuzz with activity. Today though, the bright sun and chaotic din of people chattering only aggravates his pounding headache, robbing the place of its usual appeal.

    Summary

    'I was just uh... I was really relieved. They had an easier time.'

    Michael wasn't taken in like Isobel and Max were, I wanted to show how his life was probably like and how he felt about the situation. Why didn't the Evans adopt him as well? Why separate the siblings? How did this affect the way Michael grew up?
