Heat was starting to rise as the day wore on. Traci watched as rising heat from the road made the air shimmer. Behind Kevin she saw a business-suit clad zombie shamble past a car wreck. Gunfire was attracting more and more zombies to the area.
Traci started to say something when Kevin whirled around and blasted the zombie with his shotgun. “We should get off the road, or at least out of the open.” He said, watching the zombie tumble to the ground.
Nodding, Traci agreed. “Chad! Let’s move towards the building!” She yelled, and started jogging down the road, not even checking to see if Chad followed.
|They are getting closer to the building|
As if he could read her thoughts, Chad yelled "I'm still okay! Just keep moving and I'll catch up!"
Kevin gave Chad a hard stare, nearly imperceptibly shaking his head. "Yeah, let's keep moving." He replied.
|Zombies keep appearing as the survivors keep shooting|
|The survivors attack|
"Chad! Just hang on! We'll get these cleared out!" Traci yelled, checking her aim.
Chad looked from Kevin to Traci, his body felt like it was on fire and his arms ached, although frighteningly he couldn't feel his left arm any more. Chad lurched upright, bracing his rifle and ran around the corner into the road, firing at a zombie he could see trying to cross the street...
|Zombie charges Chad|
|Kevin reloads and zombies get closer|
Kevin glanced behind him, seeing the undead coming around the front of the nearby sedan. He didn't need any further encouragement to move. Stepping next to Traci he turned and fired his shotgun, getting a couple of shots off before it clicked empty again. One zombie was down, it's leg shredded from the blast, but the last zombie was still on its feet.
"YAAAHH!" Chad yelled, running past Kevin, stumbling to a crouching position, he brought his rifle up in a solid firing position. His rifled fired and the second zombie spun around and crashed to the ground. Chad coughed and spat out a blackish bloody chunk of phlegm. "I ain't dead yet!" he yelled at the zombies writhing on the pavement.
|Chad gives it his all|
Unfortunately, doubles come up again, we get a random event and Chad expires from the zombie infection. At least he went out fighting. Apparently he hit more than the zombies when he last fired...
|Not exactly a PC car, but it makes sense...|
"Damn." Kevin said, pausing as he reloaded his shotgun. "Tough way to go."
Traci shook her head slowly, shock hitting her. She watched as the two zombies slowly stood near the car, their arms still reaching for her and Kevin.
|Those are some fast zombies!|
|Yeah, that's a bad day.|
The two zombie turned almost simultaneously towards Traci...
