CatalystParadox Posted January 20, 2019 Share Posted January 20, 2019 Week One: My name is Jean, and I have decided to write a log of these past few days… in case any of us survive. On the off chance that, if we do, we may actually want to remember any of it. It was supposed to be a quick visit to my great aunt. In-law, that is. Luke and her used to be really close, apparently. And he really wanted all the kids to meet her before she went. I… guess I am glad they all got that much, at least. So we all packed up and piled in the car and drove all the way from Toronto. That part honestly was kind of fun. We made a two week trip out of it and stopped at a lot of nice spots across the USA for some sightseeing and hiking and climbing. I didn’t even mind being cooped up with all 5 kids so much for a change. God… to think I used to hate them all sometimes? Now, I’d give anything to have them back. The bombs fell while we were in the hospital. Some kind of biological weapon, they said. They sealed the doors and said no one could go in and out for at least 48 hours. Everyone only held it together for about 36 - someone slipped out and left the doors open, and that’s when the Zeds got in. It was a week of siege warfare for us, then. Room to room and hall to hall, the staff and patients and visitors who were unaffected so far, we had to bar off doors, and retreat, and eventually fight the growing hordes of infected. We started calling them zombies, with nervous laughs, trying to take the tension off. It wasn’t that funny - it was pretty accurate. On the 7th day, something was different about the Zeds. They got particularly active - spastic, I guess, convulsive - every night after dark. This was much worse. They were like a pack of frenzied animals, gathered in a mass like we’d never seen and tearing through the barricades after us. We barely escaped, all of us except Sammy, my 10 year old. I’m worried sick about him but… I didn’t actually see him get hurt, he must have been hiding somewhere. I can still hope he made it somehow. But of all of us who did make it out… I was the only one who didn’t get bit. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
