Science-fiction had prognosticated an undead apocalypse, in one form or another, for decades, but no one really expected it to happen. 

Man's arrogance, Man's lust for power and superiority was just a terrible accident waiting to happen. The fallout came from far away for many, but ultimately there was nowhere to hide from the Necrobiological Reanimation Virus, that withered the limbic system leaving only the primitive, instinctual hindbrain to drive existence.

Always hungry.

Survivors wondered why literature bothered to called them anything other than what they were: mindless, ravenous, zombies.

There is no cure, but people still hope.
There is no immunisation, but people still search.
There is no fate but death should you be infected…

… or is there?

It would appear that Ava sees the devastation as it is now, but also glimpses how it came to be that way. This is just a little taster; more will be revealed about the world and situation of things in the next part I promise.

@ricex3 Sorry, but this could be a long process on account of this being a co-written thing. If you're into zombies, then you could always check out 'The Longest Detention in History' in my profile... plenty of gnawing in that one.

@ricex3 Wow that was quick, I only just posted it! If I told you why it was called that, it would give away some of the story wouldn't it? You'll see!
