When you are infected with the virus, there are four stages.

1) Your fever will shoot up and everything will become intensified on a maximum level. You'll lose grip on what's reality and what's illusion.

2) You'll start to slowly fall down the rabbit hole, forgetting the past and everything and everyone that you knew.

3) You face your imminent death.

4) You wake up with a pressing hunger for the living. 

It's been seven months since the pandemic hit with this virus and the world has been ravaged and left to ruins. Society has crumbled to nothing and more than three fourths of the population have been infected with the mysterious virus that took the world by storm. The virus has turned anyone infected into crazed flesh-eating freaks, with decrepit skin and red puffy eyes. The only way to kill them is by obliterating the brain. Elise Alice Gordon, Lease for short, led a simple life until the virus hit. Seven months later she is just barely scraping by. She's done what she's had to do to survive, and in that process she has created demons that haunt her every time she closes her eyes. See, it hasn't been easy trying to live in a dead world. She's lost friends, family, and everything she's ever known. The only thing she hasn't lost is her humanity and her hope. 

But she's afraid she's starting to.

Because in this new world, there's only her, the dead, and the restless.

Woah. Let's hope they both make it out alive. Going to the hospital might be suicide, but it's better than being alone
