The Walking Dead: One Day At A Time.
Chapter 1 - To be safe.
" Thank you everyone for coming.." My Dad; smart, loving, strong-willed. Parinoid, un-easy, and shaken up from all these stories from the news. Stories of a sickness turning people into crazy cannibals. There haven't been any reports locally yet.
" So, I just wanted to go over the plan just in case something were to happen." Here we go, we all thought, My Dad always talked of having these meetings, but this is for the first time one has actually taken place. " I know you all think I'm crazy but, I want us to be prepared for the worse. " So you really think zombies are going to come and eat us?" My younger cousin Howard jokingly asks. " I think that I'd like for us to be ready for that, yes." My Dad was stone-cold serious. " O.k., dont forget to pack a bag of clothes and grab some cases of water on your way home at whatever gas station you pass. Don't forget who your supposed to call on the phone tree, and to leave immediatley after you make your call to come here. Everything will be ready when you get here as far as sleeping arragments, gas for the generators and etc.. Thanks for coming everyone I'll be in touch."
There were going to be 17 of us staying here. So as you can tell my parent's house is rather large, and its in the middle of nowhere. The perfect place to bunker down and wait out whatever sickness is plauging mankind now. As everyone was piling up into thier cars to leave, my fiance Maria and I were stopped by older brother Adam. " Carson let's smoke a cig' before ya'll leave." Adam and my older sister Lindsay are twins. Adam was in the Army for eight years and has been out for a little over two. " Sure man, what's on your mind?" I asked. "Not much, just needed to tell someone other than Dad this info. I got, and I know I can trust you." "Whoa, why not Dad?" "He really doesn't need any more stress right now. I called one of my buddies who is still stationed at the coast, and he told me that they are bringing troops back from over seas to try and stop whatever is going on. Whatever it is, is serious and the government is loosing." "Damn bro." I was stunned. " I know man, I know its alot to take in, but we should take this serious, I want you to be safe lil' bro, you too Maria" He said with a smile.
On the way home we hit a traffic jam just two minutes from our driveway. After waiting almost 45 min. we made to the driveway, where we parked my truck and got out to investegate. We approached the nearest cop who was barely directing traffic. "What happend sir? That red car is demolished." It was a nasty scene. But with this fog and these wet roads, im not surprised. " Yeah, we thought that guy in the red car was gone. We zip whats left of him up in the black bag, then it starts moving. We open it up and sure enough the guy's somehow alive. without both legs and an arm. If that's not bad enough, the guy ends up biting two of the medics before they could get him restrained." "Was it that sickness?" I nervousley asked. " I dont know, but whatever it was, was fucked up." "Well have a good evening officer. Come on babe lets get in to the animals and go to bed." I knew I wouldn't sleep well after such a strange day, hell a strange week. Better pack those clothes, just to be safe.
