As I sat outside my house on the balcony staring into the dark abyss of the sky, the moon lit up the night sky, with the help of the stars of the universe, I felt a single tear gently slide down face until it met the top of my lip, again followed by more... Yes I was finally crying for what once was my life... I was planning for a change.. But only for myself... Not for everyone else... I took in a deep breath the cold still air of winter and wiped away the tears... Stood up and headed into my bedroom, and sat down on my bed and stared at her... She looked peaceful, beautiful and was the love of my life... We had been together since we were teens... She was so beautiful, I'm sure the angels were missing one of their own... Her hair, golden.. Her eyes, emerald green.. Her lips, rose red... Her face looked like it had been carved by the angels of beauty... She laid there on our bed..
She was peaceful, still and silent, but as I sat there and stared at her, I wanted to scream out, shout, and make noise... But I couldn't, I would give myself away... I cursed at god, I cursed at myself, and I even cursed at the world, but it wouldn't make any difference as she was not with me... Technically speaking her beautiful body was, but she wasn't... For she had become the undeads victim.. She was trying to save her parents from the undead hoard that had claimed them, she was bitten by her own mother, who was then decapitated... When my lover, best friend, girl of my dreams, came back into the house she headed to our bed... I had started to block the front door, and every other door and window..
I headed upstairs, unknown to me she had fallen to this virus... I went to give her a hug, she pushed me away and screamed at me... She told me she no longer loved me, no longer wanted to be with me, she hated me... I stood there unable to speak, my body shaking, and trembling.. I noticed a small trickle of blood fall from her arm, I knew she was saying these things to me because she didn't want me to know she had been bitten and turning... She burst into tears and told me she did actually love me, but didn't want me to lose her, but it was too late, she showed her arm to me, a small chunk of flesh had been taken out of her arm..
She hugged me, kissed me on the cheek and laid down on the bed and closed her emerald green eyes.. She was telling that she won't leave my side, even though was slowly dying, turning into one of these flesh eaters.. She smiled her beautiful and perfect smile and wished me to join her once she had gone... And I promised I won't leave her side as she sleeps for the eternity that will go on forever... I told her will join her sooner or later, I smiled at her and kissed her cold, damp , and clammy cheek, and held her hand until her grip weakened and drew her last breath... I got up from the bed and headed towards my wardrobe and opened it.. Crouched down and opened a little hidden cupboard and pulled out a gun already load just incase we had any intruders... As I turned around my wife had begun to sit up, her once emerald green eyes now a milky white eye opened, she sniffed the air and gave out a growl, and lunged at me... But before she could give me a fatal bite a loud bang was heard and then there was a dull thud... She had been shot in mid-air through her head.. But it wasn't by me, it was by her own younger brother... He had been hiding but listening to what had been happening...
I stood there bewilded, speechless and numb, I had become a robot, I picked up my late wife and place her on our bed, I closed her eyes.. And headed outside to the balcony until it was dark and cold, and that's where you... The reader came in and read my account on my time being a witness to what becomes your worst nightmare... I will countinue writing my account.. I have now left my home and went in search for people, survivors, and possibly a new life.. Myself and my brother-in-law are now travellers, and survivors... May you survive long enough to find me... We've headed for a place called New Hope.. A commune, a fortress, a place for a new life... And of course a New Hope...
