We arrived at johns just as Chris was getting there, “Jacob stay in
the car drive around if you have to, run em over if they get to close,
protect eve and Dan”
“ok, and protect yourself as
well” I nodded and got out, Chris also got out and we both walked up to
johns front door together. I had my gun out and Chris had a metal
baseball bat. Already stained with blood
at the baseball bat and back at my gun and smiled, he saw this” hey
don’t feel so special I actually took my paintball gun and co2 and I
have a crap load of ideas, the fps is already way up and I got marbles
and such.” I laughed, that’s Chris for ya.
ready?” Chris nodded. I tried to open the door but it was locked. I
knocked and called for john. Then I herd a noise behind us, we both
turned I raised my gun, and was ready to fire, but john was just
getting out of a parkour roll. He turned around and smiled.
“come to save me? I was just about to get on the roof with my paintball
gun and have some fun” we all laughed. And then we quickly ran for our
cars, so far so good I thought. Next stop was Teds house. We pulled up
and proceeded with the same procedure, just me and Chris at the door.
We tried to open it and this time the door opened. We found ted and
his sister just sitting on the couch, we grabbed them and ran out.
Quick and easy, with a little difficulty convincing them but eventually
they came with us. It was the same way for rob, Jane ally and ant. By
the time we grabbed everyone the cars were packed. it was impossible to
fit everyone in a seatbelt. We were driving around now and there were
still next to no zombies on the road. But other then our two cars the
streets were oddly empty. Every once in a while we would pass a zombie
here and there, but not as many as we saw when we first got attacked.
It was odd and somewhat scary.
Chris called me. “now what? Where do we go?”
“ I know!, B’js!”
“ I’m serous man, they got tons of food, only one main entrance that we
can close, we have the kind of power to thoroughly make sure its
clear. Its perfect.”
“…well …ok fine”
we were on our way to BJ’s. I picked up my phone and tried to call my
dad. I tried several times. He never answered.
got to BJ’s there were already a swarm of zombies in the parking lot,
maybe about 5 or so directly in front of the store. I jumped out the
second, the car stopped and ran for the doors, they slid open. Good
they still work I thought. Then I turned to face what ever followed me.
Two zombies were right behind me. I raised my dads gun and shot once
for one of their heads. A loud blam went out and a popping sorta noise
as the round put a hole through the head, I then quickly adjusted my
aim and shot the other one. Both shots were dead on. I paused then and
looked at what I had done. Chris ran up to me followed by the gang,
everyone got out except for the drivers of the cars and came running to
get behind me. More zombies were coming now, only me Chris, ted and
john actually had any weapons, I had a gun, Chris had his bat, and ted
and john used the paintball guns loaded with marbles.
“Chris, go take everyone inside lead the way and hit any zombies in
there you find as hard as you can, john and ted, I want you two to find
the power or some way to stop the doors from opening, ill cover the
doors so no zombies get in.” everyone went off, the drivers kept
driving around avoiding zombies and running them over when there was a
small enough number of them to avoid damage to the cars. I wondered how
much gas was left in each of them. I then looked down at the two
zombies I had killed. I was now ready to call them zombies, they were
no longer just men, no longer just the infected. They were zombies, and
I was afraid. There were four more zombies on their way over now, well
there were a lot more, but four that were close to making it without
getting splattered by the cars. i had 14 shots left in the gun. I took
aim, took my time, and squeezed off 4 more rounds, and got four more
kills. 10 rounds left, I counted. It was important to count shots.
Every round counted. One bullet one kill. It felt strange killing a
zombie. It was a mixture of satisfaction, and yet something about it
made me feel uneasy. I had to just tell myself, they were not human
anymore. My phone went off and I answered. It was john.
“yo Justin, we got the power switch get your ass in here
“ok give me one second” I started jumping up and down, within a few
seconds both the cars parked near me, both Nicole and Jacob came out
and ran for the door, we all walked in together “ok now” the doors shut
off, and then a metal gate started to shut. The doors were being locked
up. “ok john send a text message to everyone I want us all to regroup
by the front door.”
