The first page of my latest short story.
“Earth. Wasteland. Humans on the near extinction list. What was once a flourishing race, replaced by a plague of brain eating, zombies. The Zombie Apocalypse of 2014 was what they called it. Nobody knows what had caused the zombie plague, but it happened fast; almost overnight. Friends killing friends, brothers killing brothers; the Civil War, but with zombies. Woman, children; it didn’t matter. Nobody was immune to the zombie plague. A few survivors here and there, but cities and towns turned to ruins. Only one giant compound survived the zombie plague. Built almost in a month by the government around Washington DC, the compound housed the remaining remnants of the old world. Hundreds of guards on top of the walls killing zombies on sight. A post zombie apocalypse government now ruled what was left of the human race. A counsel was put in charge of protecting the remaining survivors of the United States. Every day, their scientists work on a cure while others develop new ways of defending everybody from the constant attacks by the zombies trying to penetrate the walls around Washington, DC.
My name is Devlin and I am a Zombie Hunter.”
