One day disaster struck and everybody above the age of 15 died, but lived on to be zombies. Nobody knew why and nobody knew how. This leaves all children 15 and under stranded, starving and dying.

Amber gets bullied and one day she decided to leave her base, where she is safe but not happy. When suddenly she gets attacked... but does somebody save her?


2. Where am I?

I woke up at midday, in a place that I have been to before, but I couldn't quite make it out. I was in a large room full of beds and other wounded children. I looked to the side and there sat a relatively bored looking girl clicking her fingers. 

"Hello!" She called over to me cheerfully.

"Oh er... Hi." I mumbled. It had been a long time since people had spoken to me in that cheerful manner. The girl had long brown hair and blue eyes, from the looks of it, she was quite small like me, she also looked as if she was around my age.

"I'm Lara!" She said, still sounding cheerful.

"Oh, hi! I'm er Amber." I stuttered. I was in disbelief that somebody was actually talking to me, after like 3 years.

"Well you sound cheerful!" She joked. She gave me a cheeky grin. That was when I realised that we were going to be good friends.

"Aha, sorry. I'm just confused. How long have I been here?" I asked, trying to lighten up. 

"Hmm... Let me see. Well I've been in here for as long as you, I believe for around 3 days." She said still smiling. I wondered how she did it. How she could be so cheerful at this awful time?

"Woah, I've been asleep that long?" I queried.

"Yep, well you were knocked out pretty nasty." The smile was quickly washed from her face. We sat in silence for a couple of minutes. "I went on your rescue mission. My brother was lost in it..." She sniffled. "We just heard your scream. It was very loud."

I sat there in shock. Somebody came out to save me? I didn't know what to say. Lara had lost a brother whilst fighting for me. I felt terrible. It was all my fault! I never should have left that base. How could I be so selfish? 

"I, oh my god. I'm so sorry! It's all my fault!" I cried miserably. 

Lara looked up as a tear fell from her eye. She wiped it away immediately and put on another smile, put this time it was fake. She shook her head. But I could tell she was thinking, 'Yes... Yes it was.'

"So... There was a boy there. Who was he? Was he your brother?" I asked. Breaking our silence. 

"No, his name is Zack. Everybody fancies him, even some of the boys, but so many girls cannot help but notice how much attention he has been giving you. He has been sat on your bed for hours just looking at you. Willing for you to wake up." 

I sat confused. Me? Why me? Where was he now? I had so many questions, that I knew Lara couldn't answer. I bit my lip. Maybe I knew him? Zack... The name doesn't ring any bells. I glared over at Lara. She was clicking her fingers again but still snuffling. I felt a pang of guilt. I shouldn't have left my base, all of this has happened... I have quite possibly changed a few peoples lives. I held my head in my hands. 

"Amber!" I heard Lara say. I looked up. She nodded her head in the direction of the door. And there he was. The boy I had seen before I was knocked unconscious. He was a lot dirtier than I remember. He has huge blue eyes and he was wearing some joggers and a hoodie with some black trainers. Similar to mine. He walked slowly to my bed, looking nervous. I looked over at Lara. She was looking at me with a huge smile. "Lucky!" She mouthed.

I smiled back.
