Dead End

KC Circuit isn't a race track. She's a normal teenage girl who takes a fancy to training sports or self defense, or painting with metallics.

Her life is really put to the test when everything changes. The once crowded streets of her hometown, Silverville, are teeming with parasites so vicious, it can change the way of humanity. And not in the way that people die...in the way that people die, and come crawling back to life.
Zombies. And they're out to get her.

Dedicated to my best friend Ellie Ruddlesdin :)
And Tanya (tango123)
Hope you enjoy!!!!

13. Forgive and Forget

KC was sprawled across the floor. Her basket had shot forwards, and was sliding along the pavement. It stopped a few metres away. KC wanted to stay there, on the floor, curl up into a ball and forget. But she couldn't. She had to keep going.

She pulled herself up, and ran. The bat was still tightly gripped in her sweaty palm, and as she neared the basket she bent down, and took it in her free hand. She continued to run, aware that Ellie was too far behind.

She reached Katie.

Katie's eyes widened, as she looked KC up and down, then at the basket, then at the bloody bat.

'What the hell happened, KC?'

KC took in a few wobbly breaths, and began to explain everything. She started from when she first heard the screams, and then went on about how she'd left Ellie, and felt so guilty about it. Katie listened carefully, then sighed.

'We should have known something like this was going to happen.'

Katie sounded as if she almost didn't seem to have any real emotion about it. For some reason, that made KC angry.

'How can you not care, Katie? We were going to get to safety, get away from this place, and all you can say is that we should have realised it was going to happen? How could you! Ellie...she's just died. She's one of...one of them.'

KC pulled a disgusted face, but it only made tears fall fast.  She wiped them away with a sweaty, bloody hand. She sniffed, inhaling the rotten smell. Why did life have to change so quickly? Why were they in this situation? HOW did they get into this situation?

'I'm sorry. I know Ellie was supposed to be under our protection, but now it's happened, we can't go back. We can only go forward, and see what happens next.'

Katie looked down at the food in KC's basket, then back up to KC.

'Did you manage to get a bag?'

KC spat on the floor. Then she readied herself for another spit ball. Katie held up her hands, and took a step back.

'Fine. God Bless Ellie.'
