I'm Emma Andrews. The tall one over there is Luke, the Asian one is Calum but he isn't Asian, he's kiwi. The one with the bandana is Ashton and the dude with the colored hair is Michael. We are just trying to survive the zombie apocalypse.


16. Selfish

Emma's POV

I woke up to the sound of screaming. I jolted out of bed and ran out the door, trying to find out where it was coming from. It came from Luke's room and I ran in seeing Luke screaming with his eyes closed.

"Luke! Luke!" I screamed running over and sitting on him, my arms around on each side of his face.

"Luke !Wake Up!" I screamed as I shook him. 

"Get off! Don't Touch Me!" He shouted in his sleep. 

"Luke, it's me! It's Emma! Wake up!" I shouted. 

"NO!NO!" He shouted louder.

I quickly got up grabbing a water bottle from the mini fridge and went back on Luke.

"Luke wake up!"

"NO NO HELP ME!" Luke cried.

I opened the bottle and poured it on his face.

Luke opened his eyes, getting up so quickly, I fell over in fear off the bed. 

"Ow!" I landed with a thud.

"Emma! Oh thank god Emma you're okay!" Luke said scrambling out of bed and hugging me tightly. 

"Well apart from my bruised arm but yea.. Luke are you okay?" I ask him.

Luke shakes his head,"No, no I'm not."

"Luke, I really truly care for you. You know that right? You are one of the best things that has happened to me and I really need to know if you are actually okay," I tell him.

"I...I just get nightmares..That's all." He says.

"Oh nightmares.."

"Emma?" He asks.

'Yes Luke?"

He stands up and I stand up with him.

He pushes the hair out of my face and l lean in, him doing the same.

"Are you guys alright?" Ashton asks as we jump off and I mentally kill myself.

"Oh, ugh my food is ready," Ashton says nervously and leaves.

"We should probably um go," I said leaving. 

Luke follows me out but I stop Luke.

"You might wanna put a shirt on first," I say smiling.


We all eat together, laughing and chatting until a alarm blares off.

"WHATS GOING ON?!" Luke yells over the alarm. 

"IT'S HAPPENING!" Violet yells.

"DADDY MY EARS!" Faith cries.

"FOLLOW ME!" Dr. Tran orders as we all follow him into the lab, where it's quiet.

"What's going on?" I ask him.

Dr. Tran looks at Dr. Miller, eyes with guilt.

"We are running out of power...we have about...30 minutes left until the power is gone," Dr. Tran says.

"Is that what the big red countdown is?" Calum asks, pointing toward the wall where it says we have 28 minutes left.

"Yes it is," Violet says looking at Dr. Overstreet. 

He squeezes her hand as he looks down.

"What happens when the power runs out?" Michael asks.

"Computer, what happens when power runs out?" Dr. Tran asks. 

"When the power runs out, facility-wide decontamination will occur." 

"Decontamination?" Luke asks.

"What is gonna happen?" Ashton asks.

"It's designed to keep the computers running to the last possible second.
That started as we approached the half-hour mark It was the French." Dr. Miller said. 
 "what?" Calum asked.

"They were the last ones to hold out as far as I know.
While our people were bolting out the doors and committing suicide in the hallways, they stayed in the labs till the end.They thought they were close to a solution." Dr. Overstreet said.

"What happened? " I asked.

"The same thing that's happening here.No power grid.Ran out of juice."  Violet said.

"No that is it! We are getting out of here! Guys, grab your stuff, we are leaving," Luke ordered as we all ran toward the door, but a metal door blocked our way.

"Did he just lock us in? He just locked us in!" Logan said in fear.

Calum and Michael banged on the doors, trying to get it to budge.

"Open these doors!" Luke yelled at Dr. Tran.

"There's no point.Everything topside is locked down.The emergency exits are sealed." Dr. Tran said.

"Then open it!" I yelled.

"That's not something I control.The computers do.I told you once that front door closed, it wouldn't open again.You heard me say that." Dr. Tran yells.

"What is? What happens in 20 minutes? - What happens in 20 minutes??!" Aston yells, holding onto his kids.

"You know what this place is?! We protected the public from very nasty stuff! Weaponized smallpox! Ebola strains that could wipe out half the country! Stuff you don't want getting out! Ever! In the event of a catastrophic power failure-- in a terrorist attack, for example-- H.I.T.S are deployed to prevent any organisms from getting out. Computer define H.I.T.S" Dr. Miller said.

"HITs-- high-impulse thermobaric fuel-air explosives cocoists of a two-stage aerosol ignition that produces a blast wave of significantly greater power and duration than any other known explosive except nuclear.
The vacuum-pressure effect ignites the oxygen between 5,000 and 6,000 degrees and is used when the greatest loss of life and damage to structures is desired." The computer said.

"No...NO NO!" Luke cried.

"It sets the air on fire.No pain.An end to sorrow, grief regret.Everything." Violet says with tears in her eyes.

"Maybe this is how we should die....maybe this is for the best,"  Luke says.

"Are you fucking crazy Luke?!" Michael says.

"It's better dieing here...than dieing a horrible death...out there," Luke cries.

"He gets it.This is what takes us down.This is our extinction event." Dr. Tran smiles.

"This isn't right.You can't just keep us here." Logan cries.

"One tiny moment-- A millisecond.No pain." Dr. Miller says.

"My kids don't deserve to die like this!" Ashton cries, begs.

"Wouldn't it be kinder, more compassionate to just hold your loved ones and wait for the clock to run down?" Dr. Tran says.

"No! It wouldn't! I want to survive!" I yell.

"You won't live out there!"  Dr. Miller says.

"No! I won't believe that! I know if we hang on to hope, we will survive this! We just need a chance! Please please please! Give us a chance!" I beg.

Dr. Tran sighs and presses a button, allowing the doors to be opened.

"Everyone grab your stuff!" I shout.

"Calum grab my things and Luke's too please?"

"I will, aren't you coming?" Calum asks.

"I am, just go!" I shout. 

"Luke, lets go!" I shout.

"No...I'm staying..." Luke says.

"What?! No your not. You're coming with me!" I say.

"What point is there? I'm going to die out there,"

"No! No you won't! You're coming with me and we are going to survive this!" I shout. 

"I want to die," Luke cries.

"I want you to live! I want you here!" 

"I'm staying," Luke cries.

I sigh and sit next to him.

"What are you doing?" Luke asks.

"I'm staying here. With you," I sigh.

"No, you need to go, go and live!"

"It's not living without you Luke...without you there isn't a reason to live anyway," I cry.

"Violet stay with me!" Sam Overstreet said.

"No, no I wanna live! I don't want to die!" she says as she runs out of the room, leaving Dr. Miller, Dr. Tran, and us.

"Luke, I love you,"

"I love you too," Luke said squeezing my hand,and I'm not gonna let you die."

Luke stands up and grabs my hand."Let's go!"

"Dr. Tran, Dr. Miller, Dr. Overstreet! Come with us!" I shout.

"No, it's really fine. I rather stay..." Dr. Tran says, holding onto Sam and Cydni.

"Thank you," I said hugging him.

He whispers a few sentences to me and I stand there shocked.

"Emma lets go!" Luke shouted, grabbing my hand.

I look back at Dr. Tran,  with tear filled eyes. 

I run out with Luke as we see our friends trying to break down the door.

"We can't break it! It's too thick!" Ashton says.

"Wait! Emma!" Violet says handing me her grenade.

"Thank you!" I say hugging her. 

"Everyone get down!" I shout. 

"Um Calum! You should throw it!" I saw giving it to him since he was in the military. 

"Alright everybody down!" He shouts as he takes a rod out and throws it to the window, everyone ducking. 

The window shatters and glass hits me.

"Lets go!"

We all run as far as we can and I hold onto Luke, making sure he doesn't get lost. 

Suddenly the building blew up causing Luke and I to fall forward.

I got up and looked at the CDC, or what was left of it, in flames.

I held onto Luke's hand and sighed. 

"I almost lost you," I told him.

"Yea. All because I was being selfish," Luke shook his head.

"Luke, I was just afraid of loosing you.. I was being selfish..but I am glad I acted the way I did," I confessed. 

"Emma Andrews, I think I am falling for you.." Luke sighs.

"Yea...I think I might be falling in love with you, Luke Hemmings."

He leaned in, and I finally knew that this was the moment.

"Guys lets go!" Violet shouted.

"Darn," I pouted as Luke helped me up. 

Luke just smiled giving me a quick peck on the lips and walked off, leaving me with the stupidest grin I had ever had in my life.
