[Annie and Jeff narrate text messages to each other
Jeff, heard from one of Troy's troops about a speech you gave at blanket fort. This war could be over. Proud of you for taking a stance. Text message, Annie Edison.
Thank you, Annie. I'm proud of you too. Also wish the nightmare would end, but using what I'm given to help where I can. Jeff Winger.
