The Survival Trilogy: Surviving a Zombie Attack
Dreaming of Zombies
Sunlight streamed through the thin curtains of the beige guestroom. I blinked open my eyes, blinded for a few seconds by the bright light. I looked around the room, trying to figure out where I was.
I shot out of the bed at the sound of my name. I grabbed a gun from my unzipped bag and ran out into the hallway.
At the end of the hallway was a small group of zombies, maybe three or four, bent over their morning meal. I saw a flash of red and ran towards the zombies.
"Alex!" I shouted as I shot at the zombies.
"Zander!" the voice that called before came again. I froze at the top of the stairs and looked down.
Standing at the bottom of the stairs was a little girl, about seven years old, with long brown hair and big brown eyes. She was wearing a long white nightgown and her feet were bare.
"Zander!" she smiled up at me.
"Gina?" I stared down at my little sister. She nodded and opened her arms wide.
"Join me, Zander," she giggled. I let my gun fall to the ground and slowly began to descend the stairs.
"Gina?" I asked again, not believing that she was really there. She was dead. I saw her die...
"I missed you Zander," Gina said. I came to a stop at the bottom of the stairs, just one step above her. She opened her arms again and smiled up at me.
I threw my arms around her and hugged her tight. Her sweet flowery aroma surrounded me and for the first time in months, everything felt normal. Alex's screams faded in my ears and the only sound was the soft hum coming from Gina's lips.
"Gina," I breathed as I held her closer to me.
"Zander?" she asked softly.
"Yes Gina?" I whispered.
My eyes shot open as the dream vanished and I found myself lying in the guest room. The sky was still dark, but I could hear Alex in the next room moving around.
"Zander!" a sharp whisper came through the darkness. I squinted until my eyes adjusted and I saw Jaymie standing near the door.
"What's going on?" I asked as I got out of bed, taking my gun out from under my pillow.
"They got in," she whispered. I froze.
Through the darkness I saw her shrug.
"Is Alex okay?" I asked, glancing at the wall.
"I don't know," she said, "I came in here."
"You didn't wake him?"
"He was already awake," she said as she peeked out into the hallway. I pulled her away from the door and looked out. There were only about three zombies in the hallway, near Alex's door.
I pulled back into the room and shut the door quietly, "there's a bat in my bag; you can use that."
Jaymie nodded and searched around for my bag. I opened the door again and looked out, closing it immediately. There was now about six zombies staggering around in the hallway and one was about two feet away from the door.
"You find that bat yet?" I asked, squinting at Jaymie. She nodded, holding it up for proof.
With a nod of my head I opened the door and ran out into the hall, firing my gun at the nearest zombie. Jaymie let out a scream and ran towards another zombie, smashing it on the head with the bat. It staggered back a little bit, but continued forward, until Jaymie sent another blow to its head and it fell to the ground.
"Make sure it's dead!" I yelled out as I shot another one. There were more of them coming up the stairs now.
"They're already dead, genius!" Jaymie shouted back as she swung the bat low, knocking a zombie off their feet and bashing its head in once it reached the ground.
"You know what I mean!" I shouted back as I shot a few more, making my way towards Alex's room. His door opened and Alex jumped out carrying one of his home-made weapons, which was really just a stick with a blade taped to it.
He was waving it around, waiting for a zombie to come closer. Once one did, he swung it in an arc and it hit the top of the zombies head, gushing blood everywhere. I heard Jaymie gag and I smirked, but it quickly disappeared as I ran out of bullets and began kicking the zombies down the stairs.
"We've got to get to the back!" Alex shouted as he swung at another zombie after dislodging his weapon from the previous one.
