The story so far:
Where It All Started
I was sixteen and happy. In eleventh grade, life at home was good, no one dared pick on me anymore now that I was the biggest in the grade. (6‘3“) In my younger years I was always tormented by every boy in the grade. Most of the girls were pretty nice to me though. But I got through. My best freind Lucas Rossoto, was in 10th grade, he got held back in 6th for “behavior”, ever since 3rd we always hung out. He was a punk, I was a “good simaritan” and we got along great. We both love music (Punk, Rock ect.), we both loved video games (him not so much any more), one thing we cant agree on is girls. He liked them hot, me... I liked ‘em cute. Long brunette hair, pretty eyes, and not the biggest chest in the world.
Well, anyhow in 5th grade a kid named Joe Keyser, .... not Joey.... NEVER call him Joey, came to our school Chautauqua Lake Central School. He befreinded Luke and then... well he started to hate me. Lucas never liked that. Always thought we could be great freinds. Ha, yeah right. As kids do we started imagining things, we always talked about what we would do if a zombie apocolypse ever happened. We still talk about it today. And now... now was the time to put it into action.
I had woken up, hopped on the bus, rode for 45 minuets to the school, and started my day, I had heard about some stuff happening in China but thought nothing of it. I wasn’t really into watching the news yet. Boy, maybe I should of... Well at lunch, I sat at the table with Lucas, Joe, and a few others who are not important. We started talking as usual but the Joe brought something up about one thing I wish he didn’t... Kori Erickson... This girl was beyond pretty and the close to the cutest thing beside a baby seal... yes... a baby seal... She came to the school in 6th grade. I had liked her ever since. She was everything I wanted in someone, the most beautiful hair ever seen, black by the way, tan skin, and the cutest face ever. By the end of 6th everyone knew but a few clueless people, because of people who can not be names. Anyway next year I had sent her an e-mail. It was the best thing I could do, she was one of the most popular girls in school, and I was at the bottom of the stack. She read it, said it was the sweetest thing she had ever read, then never talked about it again....
Joe talked about how she had just gotten into a “cat fight” with some of her and her best freinds “arch enemy”. Taylen Carter. She was a southern girl from flordia and not using the term lightly (I almst never sweared) a bitch. It seems she tried to get a rumor about how Kori had slept with Joey Parker. The top dog in our grade. He had everything I didn’t. A nice face, a rich family, and girls drooling over him 24/7. This rumor could not be true because Kori was one of the few girls who saw right past Parker. She did not like him at all. In all I belive Kori and I have had about fifteen conversations... maybe.
Soon seventh period was here, science. My favorite class. The one bad thing about it was I sat next to Taylen. She hated ever since she got here. (In 7th) She always complained about the stupidest things. Well during one of our lessons the anouncements went on telling all the teachers to turn on their T.V.s for an emergency broadast from the president himself. It stated that an epidemic has started in the Americas. He showed photos from news stories. A cameraman attacked by a little girl, a reporter mauled by a pack of.. of humans!
Instantly I knew. Zombies...
