Finally snapping out of her shock, she fired her SMG, pulling loose her machete to face the undead...
|Traci shoots the first zombie|
|Traci kills the last zombie|
"Sorry." She said, plunging her machete through his head, killing him before he could rise again and attack. Looking around, Traci realized the area was quiet. The midday sun was hot and the still air was making the day uncomfortably warm.
Traci stood for a moment and looked back up the road she and Chad had walked down, what felt like a lifetime ago now. She considered walking back, Jack would be happy to see her. Dawn...would welcome her back, probably with a lecture. Kevin coughed from where he lay, not getting up, but clearly injured.
Snapping out her daydream, Traci moved to check the car and get Kevin off the street...
|Traci says goodbye to Chad|
Only to go bad when I find out Kevin is infected...
|Traci decides to check the building|
Traci closed the car door, nearly in tears at loosing another companion so quickly. Looking at the door to the RV Office, Traci unslung her SMG, making sure it was ready.
|Traci enters the office|
At the top of the stairs, she glanced at the mess of boxes and folding chairs, just catching the motion from the open doorway as a teenage zombie lurched at her. Traci reacted with a swift swing, killing the zombie with a solid blow to the head. The rotten corpse slumped to the floor, dead.
Traci saw filthy sleeping bags and boxes of a small camp in the room. Looking at the debris in the room, she found personal items of a family. She nearly broke down realizing the zombies she just finished off had been a family that ended up turned here together.
|Time to change the flat tire|
|Traci moves Kevin out of the car|
Walking across the the road, the day's heat was starting to wear on her. The humidity made the June day feel like the dead of summer. After all the gunfire earlier, the quiet made her a a little nervous, she readied her SMG for action, just in case. She hoped her decision to check the RVs wasn't a bad idea...
|Traci checks the first RV|
"Whoa!" Traci said "I'm just looking for help." She gave a cute smirk.
"You mean like with that other guy!" The ganger replied, jerking his head towards the road and Kevin. "Hell no!"
|Traci runs into a ganger|
|In sight checks are tied|
|Wow, not good|
The ganger started to cock his rifle again, a grin spreading across his face as he realized Traci's SMG was empty.
|A zombie approaches the gun fight|
Traci kicked the rifle away and drew back the machete, ready to finish off the ganger. She paused, looking out the nearby window and seeing a zombie shambling towards the RV. She shook her head, and reloaded her SMG, drawing aim on the zed.
|Traci and a lone zombie|
|Traci lines up on the gate|
|Traci smashes the gate and a zombie!|
Slamming the brakes, Traci stopped the RV, determined to grab the pack and supplies before she left...
|Traci stops in the road|
Of course, I DO have to activate for that to work...
|Traci faces the first zombie as she gets out|
|Two zombies attack Traci as she stands still|
|Traci grabs the supplies from the car|
|Traci watches the zombies approach|
|Undead Kevin attacks with help!|
Traci shouldered Chads pack and stood up from the car. She looked at the gas cap, considering if she could get the fuel out and into the RV. Scraping on the pavement behind her made Traci spin around, machete at the ready.
Shambling towards her was Kevin, looking nearly grey from the corruption that had turned him into a zombie. Traci paused, but only to setup her attack...
|Just need to get back to the RV!|
|Traci takes down the closest zombies|
|Traci has an opening...|
Traci turned hard left, heading for the highway. She had left and wasn't going back...
|Traci makes her escape!|
I will continue with Dawn, maybe we will revisit Traci in the future...
