She's Not Afraid

When you live in a world filled with flesh eating zombies, there's no time for romance, there's just surviving. My name is Zoey Bolger, im 16 and i have been surviving on my own during the zombie Apocalypse for 2 years. I've watched my closest friends and my own family get ripped apart and devoured by walkers. i traveled all the way from the east coast of the US to London, England on my own when i stumbled upon a small group of 5 other survivors who are still clueless to the situation. What the hell am i gonna do with these five idiots?


3. Finding Alex

Zoey's POV

     I was out of breath and extremely exhausted. I looked at each boy as they stared at the walkers who reached their arms through the fence. Harry looked horrified, Niall seemed stunned. It was probably because he had just almost died. I can't believe I risked my life to save this stranger. Zayn turned to me. I did not return his stare as I looked away.

"This has been this way for all this time? I had, I had no idea it was, this bad." Harry was talking to himself more than her was talking to any of us.

I looked to him and nodded my head. Then i stood to my feet and looked down at all of them. "Are you guys ready to go? THe fence could give in at any second."

THe boys stood to their feet and gathered themselves together. We continued on our way down the deserted road.

"Where exactly are we headed?" Liam asked as he hastily caught up to me.

"Buckingham" i replied not turning to his direction.

"You mean the palace? Why are we going there?"

"Because my sister is there." We walked by a military outpost. I ran to a lifeless body of a soldier and stripped him of his weapons and usable gear.

"Oh that's just wrong." Niall said looking down at me with disappointment.

I looked up at him "I'm sort of regretting saving your life right now."

Niall's expression softened and he returned to silence.

I continued stripping down the soldiers of their holdings. Soon the boys joined me in my picking and we ended up with Automatic rifles and an unlimited amount of ammo. Corpses crept around us but they were nothing worth wasting ammo on. We continued traveling down the road.

In silence we traveled. Walking there was going to take a while, we need a car. I don't thing I can deal with this pain any longer, and no I am not talking about the bite on my shoulder, I can't take the stress of not being with my sister. I promised my father I would protect her, and right now I am failing him.

     Zayn walked over closer to me, I didn't look at him, I kept looking straight and walking. The last time i gave him my attention I got bit, I'm not gonna let that happen again. He couldn't take the hint and he started talking to me.

"Zoey?" he asked looking down at me. I looked up at him briefly silencing him and then returned to walking and ignoring him, which i might add was getting hard to do.

     We continued walking until the night sky began to darken and the Sun started to set.

"I think it's time we stopped walking and started finding a resting place." Liam said almost out of breath.

I turned to them, they all looked extremely tired. I forgot that they didn't have endurance like I do. "Alright, uh yeah, I think there's a town just a little ways ahead..we could stop there if you guys will be able to make it just a few more minutes."

With a groan the boys continued walking. NIall complained of being hungry, nobody really did anything about it, we were all starving. Niall must have been deathly hungry, he passed out amd fell to the ground with a loud impact. We all stopped and turned to him. Zayn and Harry were panting and Liam looked pale. Louis looked as though he was going to pass out too. I handed my guns and equipment to Zayn and picked Niall up. I held him over my back and we continued walking.

     By the time we made it to the small town, the sun had already set and we were in the blind. There was no moon tonight. The town seemed quiet and safe. We made our way into one of the houses. We cleared it of walkers and diposed of the bodies outside before barracading ourselves in. I placed Niall on the ground and bit at my dirt nails. I didn't know how to wake him. I took my water bottle out of my bag and splashed some on his face, he remained unresponsive. I checked his pulse just to be sure he was still alive, he was. "Niall?" I patted his cheeks. He still laid there almost lifeless. I didn't know how to wake him. I started getting worried. "This is going to hurt a lot" I slapped him hard right accross the face, He shot up like a bullet and looked at me.

"Ow" he whined "why the hell did you do that?"

Liam cheered as did harry. Zayn chuckled "Becuase somebody wanted a free ride on my girl so he didnt have to walk three more steps. Everybody, including me, turned to him. His smile faded, i shook my head and sighed as i stood up off of the floor. I put my water back into my bag and walked out of the room.
