6. Escaping the Horror
My ears hurt so bad from all of the explosions that went off. Me, Kegan, Drew, and Noah were left. We just looked through the door in horror. Brad sacrificed himself for us.
"Come on, we need to keep moving." Kegan said. We went around the broken down store to look for food and water. The best thing that we found to eat was canned chicken noodle soup. The soup would last awhile and it would taste good the only problem was that it would be cold. We got twenty cans of chicken noodle soup and twenty bottles of water and ten little cans of peanuts. It was quite a lot to get but we didn't want to risk losing another friend trying to get supplies.
"How are we going to get back to our base?"Noah said. We all looked out of the window of the store but we couldn't find out a plan.
"I have an idea. You see that bus over there?" They all nodded. "I think if we get in the bus and drive to somewhere that is safe enough from all the zombies we can just camp there until we find out if everything is alright." I said.
"But...we don't know how to drive..." Drew replied.
"I'd rather drive than get mauled by zombies." I said. They all agreed. "I think Noah should drive the bus since he told me that his dad once taught him how to drive." I said and Noah understood. "Ok on the count of 3 we quietly open the door and sneak our way to the bus. Noah get ready to drive once we get there." I said. "Ok 1...2...3" I whispered. I opened the door very silently and we snuck out of the store. We were about halfway to the bus and a zombie groaned and the other zombies heard and started to chase after us. I quickly and loudly said, "Run!" We all sprinted as fast as we could to the bus. We went through the door and got in as quickly as possible. "Shut the doors!" I yelled. Me and Drew shut the doors and locked them.
Luckily the key was still in the ignition so we were ready to drive. Noah was a better driver than I thought. There were many zombies that climbed onto the outside of the bus. "Fire at the zombies!" I said. One of the zombies got inside of the bus through the window. The zombie was all the way on the other side of me. I acted quick and threw one of my throwing knives and it dug into its chest and the zombie fell to the floor dead.
All of the zombies couldn't climb back onto the bus since we were going to fast for them. Everything was pretty safe now so I sat by the Noahs seat. The only really exciting thing that was happening was that the zombies were getting plowed over by the bus.
"So, Logan where are we going from here?" Noah said.
"I think we should head down west to our hometown, Van Wert Ohio." I said.
