I lie there, still, alone. I can see my mother under the car beside me, she gives me a calming smile. I can see right through it. No one can hide the pain and fear in her eyes. Still, I smile back because I know it helps her.
'Have they gone?' I whisper, the moans and groans of the walkers seem to have passed. I edge my way gently from the safety of the car. I need to feel the warmth of my mothers arms to be able to feel safe just one more time.
Im out in the open, anything could hurt me. I'm small and vulnerable and the perfect bait for a walker. Walkers!! I spin around and there it is, only 5 yards away. Limping toward me, blood thirsty for his next meal... Me!
I turn to leg it, but it seems my paniced shrieks have attracted another and this one can run. Their closing in on me.
'Mummy!!' I scream, but I know its to dangerous. No one can help me, I'm good as dead all ready. I slide back under the car but they follow my sent. Gooey red liquid slides down their faces and I can see in their deathly eyes they're hungery.
'HELP ME!' I wail out, the tears free loose from my mothers eyes. She ready to scream but she can't; Their attracted to noice. If she screamed it would be like holding a sign with an arrow facing her way saying free food.
I have to get out. For someone who's dead they sure move fast. My heart skips a beat when I feel something grab my foot, I try to kick it away but its to strong. My life flashes before my eyes, I'm not ready to die.
I scan my options, trying not to think of the worst case senario because I know thats not pretty. I could get it over and done with, let them kill me now, become infected, one of them. No, thats not an option. Do I want to scar my mother for life? I'm all she has. I need to get out. My only escape root is off the main road and into the woods. How many others could be in the woods? Thats not a question I need crossing my mind now. I just need to get this flesh eater of my foot before it is to late.
Kicking and screaming, off slips my shoe and so does the walker.He seems quite content chewing on the sole of it. For now. I move as agile as I can while its destracted. I make my way out from under the car and run for it. I'm faster than them but their not far behind me. Diving over the barrior at the side of the road,I make my way into the unknown, I wont dare to guess.
