I didn’t even want to write this, but my dad says it’ll keep me sane so what the hell, today was tough you know, I expected everything to be like the games, shoot a few zombies here, smash a few heads there and escape unscathed, but as it turns out shit doesn’t go down like that in the real world, well today the infection hit, I tried to convince myself I was prepared, I was far from it they tore through us like fucking butter, we even lost Oli, those basterds tore him apart like he wasn’t even there. We managed to get out of the main hazard zone to my friends farm a few miles away, he has food, water and weapons, the 3 things we need to survive in todays conditions. So anyway I need some rest, i'll write tomorrow, if I’m still alive
When you think it can only get better, it gets suddenly worse, more fucking worse than ever before. Today started well, with the crisp clear blue sky of a cold winter’s day, a few columns of smoke could be seen rising in the distance, dew was fresh on the grass and a few birds were chirping in the trees, but other than that it was silent, serene so to speak, the noise you would expect the day after the end of the world was just, well, not there. We started out at about 8 am approx after we had found some gear, (tents, tools, clothes etc.) and made our way down to Connahs quay, my home town, which was about 10-12 minutes by car, the roads were so quiet, and besides for a few corpses and crashed cars, were completely empty. Connahs quay was a different matter however. The houses that lined the streets were abandoned and stained with the blood of men, women and children alike, those undead basterds aren’t very picky it seems. Soon after we approached my house and I could immediately tell something wasn’t right. Dad went in first and I followed closely behind him, what I saw next I will never forget for as long as I live, there huddled up on the carpet in front of me was my mother, auntie and two cousins, dead, I can’t describe that, and I don’t think I ever will. I don’t know where we are now, it’s too dark to tell, the others are asleep except Dad, but he’s driving, suppose I better get some rest too, God knows, I’m gonna need all the strength I can muster .
