(WARNING: THIS STORY IS NOT COMPLETE. THEREFORE, THERE WILL BE MISTAKES - In other words, it is the first draft.)
My heartbeats faltered as I tried to process the horrific image of my good-as-dead mother only yards away from the doorway I looked out of. After a few seconds, which seemed to be nothing, I realized her deadly, icy face was quickly getting closer. Hideous snarls that I later realized were coming from her rippled through the air. I couldn't make myself move and for one terrifying, agonizing moment, I thought I was going to die. Be murdered. Killed by my own mother.
Alex had a normal life and was mildly content, until the day the infected took over. They. Are. Not. Human. That's the only mentality that can keep her from losing sanity.
How do you survive an apocalypse? Just don't trust anyone. Never let your guard down. Don't ever fall in love; God, that would be stupid - And most importantly, always protect Max.
(This does have some descriptive gore. It's not really R material, but it wouldn't be suitable for readers who get disturbed easily.)
