This is a second view point from my original story - A Different Virus - Heartfire.  I highly advise reading the original book first.

Laura was a happy child without a care in the world.  She loved her parents and life was perfect. Nothing seemed like it could go wrong.

People started talking about a bad flu that was spreading and sending some into a coma. Her parents grew worried and stocked the house in case of a pandemic.

Months later another virus appeared. Her family was shocked when the news people started reporting that zombies were actually real and not just part of a horror movie. They were appearing in every country. Her parents reassured her that none of the zombie sightings had been anywhere close to them.

Her life is turned upside down when her father ends up in hospital with the bad flu and mother exiles her upstairs for her safety. She was never allowed downstairs again. Weeks pass and the streets become deserted with the exception of the red eyed zombies that wandered around.

One night she notices a swiftly moving figure with glowing blue eyes in the street below. Should she call out or remain silent? Is this fleeting shadow something that can help her or could this mysterious figure be even more dangerous than the zombies themselves?

This story is copyright and built from my own imagination. 

This book was a special request from someone who helped me a lot. This viewpoint has less action than the original.
The cover was made by @All_AboutAssymetry. A huge thanks to her!

I think I just realized why she never left Diane! Did she think that Diane was her angel?
My band is playing a very sad sounding song in class right now, and it is currently playing on repeat in my head
