As I awoke, I felt a great feeling of relief. I survived my first day of the zombie apocalypse. I also felt very hungry, not having eaten in almost a day. I opened a box of canned food, and pulled out a can of peaches and a plastic fork. Up until this point I hadn't noticed Austin.
"Hey man." He said. "How'd you sleep?"
"Like a baby." I replied with a yawn. "You?"
"Okay, I guess." He looked at the box of cans. "You got any beans in there?"
I tossed him a can and a…Continue
As we approached, I was suprised to discover that they were not grown men as I had originally thought. We stopped a few yards from their SUV while they jumped down from their positions on top. I realised that they were some of my friends, and I let out a sigh of relief. There was Sandy, Cody, Steven, Austin, and Taylor.
