I watched as it staggered towards me. It's entire right side of it's rotting grey body slightly lower and more forward than the left side.
"Ahhhghhhgg." It groaned.
I stood there frozen. My brain was telling me to run. I was telling myself to run. But my body wouldn't move. It was like I had been super glued to the ground.
The zombie continued to look at me as it moved closer. It's head tilting to the slide every now and then... Like a confused dog.
"Bethany run!" Someone yelled from behind.
I jumped with fright... And so did the zombie.
It hunched over, it's eyes narrowing as it hissed and began to move faster in my direction.
I screamed, not knowing what to do or where to go.
I spun around and ran towards the tall male figure.
As I reached him, I glances back and saw the zombie running towards me.
In every Zombie movie I remember, they were all relatively slow... This time? Well this time they are super fast.
"How do you know me?" I asked the man as we jumped into a browny coloured Jeep.
"That's not important right now."
I didn't reply. There was no point.
"Get the gun." He said.
"The gun. Get it."
I grabbed the gun from the back seat.
"Is it loaded?"
"What?!" I yelled in question.
"Shoot the zombies. Those bullets will kill them." He yelled back.
I fired three shots. Each shot hit the three zombies that were following us.
"You're a natural."
"I'm a murderer."
"No your not. You're saving people lives."
"Surely there- Look out!" I screamed as a zombie flung it's self onto the Jeep.
I killed my fourth zombie.
Before I continue, you are probably all wondering who I am and what's going on...?
Well.... I'm Bethany Waters. Not your normal 17 year old girl. Duh. Three years ago, a deadly virus broke lose in central America... This virus turned people into Zombies. If you were unlucky and became a zombie, it's because you were bitten.
Three years later, this virus has reached my land... Australia. It has wiped out the entire animal and plant kingdom; luckily, the animals died. They didn't turn into zombies. Now the virus is slowly wiping out the human race.
I am Bethany and I am one of the last survivors. Me and this random guy who is driving the Jeep... And who is now yelling at me.
Back to reality:
"Stop zoning out! This is a life or death situation!" He yelled.
I sighed and rolled my eyes.
"If I wasn't here to shoot your gun, you would be dead. So stop yelling and start thanking me." I yelled back.
We were doing near on 200km/h. Yeah... Really fast.
I could begin to make out a very tall concrete wall with barb wire spirals on top up ahead.
"Open the gate!" He yelled.
Seconds later, two huge concrete slabs began to open.
We drove straight through and into a camp base.
We pulled up near a shelter.
I grabbed my things and looked around.
"I'm Chase." The man said as he caught up to me.
Chase had bright green eyes and blonde hair. He was pretty cute.
"Yep. And you already know who I am." I replied and continued walking.
"Hey! I saved your life! You should be more grateful!" He yelled.
"Thanks. But in case you haven't noticed, there is a Zombie Apocalypse going on. Being thankful is the last thing on my mind." I yelled back as I chucked my backpack over my shoulder.
"You're in block 78." Chase said more calmly.
75....76....77.... Aha... 78. Home for the next however long we're here for.
I found a free bunk and chucked my bags on the bed.
"You must be Bethany. Little Miss I-Can-Save-My-Self-I-Don't-Need-Anyone." Said a female voice.
I groaned, rolling my eyes and spun around.
"Yes. That me." I said folding my arms.
"You may be a 'tough girl', but I'm the boss here. You listen to me. Understand?"
The girl huffed and walked off.
I don't take shit from anyone. I live by my own rules. It's a free country.... Kind of.
Beep! Beep! Beep!
Everyone went dead quiet.
"Listen up!" She girl yelled.
Everyone looked up and turned to face her.
"There will be dorm meetings every night at 1700 hours. You don't show up, you're on cleaning duty for a month. Questions?!"
"Yeah!" I yelled.
"Who made you leader!?"
Everyone turned to me with wide eyes.
"The Pecking Oder did. And right now, you on the bottom."
There were a few sniggers in the crowd.
"Keep your mouth shut!" I yelled.
"Careful Casey. There might be a new leader." A male voice said from behind.
I spun around. A tall figure with dark brown hair and brown eyes stood behind me. His arms folded and feet apart. No doubt he was in the army.
"Nick." He smiled at me.
"I know who you are. Word travels fast when the new kid challenges the leader."
I rolled my eyes and turned around.
"Training begins 0500 hours!" Casey yelled.
I sighed. Why do I need training. My mum taught me Karate from a very young age and my dad taught me how to shoot a gun when I was eight. I'll be fine.
So... What did you think?
I really hope you're enjoying this so far.
