5:30 AM rolled around and we were suddenly awoke by what sounded like gunfire.
I sat up quickly and grabbed my gun, "GUYS GET UP WE GOTTA HELP!!"
They sat up and looked at me, "What's going on," Brooke asked.
"Yea no kidding. What's up?"
The 'gunfire' went off again.
"That!! Grab weapons!! Let's get out there and help," I said as I got my boots and ran outside. I didn't get dressed so I ran out there in my underwear and bra. I didn't mind I was going out there to fight, not to impress people.
Brooke got dressed and Stephany followed me out there in the same condition I was in.
"Spread out! GO," I told them. I went to the left. Steph went to the right and Brooke went straight.
We waited and heard nothing. I know what this is, I thought to myself and turned around. "Girls, fall in. This was just a joke to get us out here in our underwear," I yelled. I was not happy and my sisters knew it. The men would and SGT...well they would find out soon enough.
Steph looked me up and down, "Well it worked for you and I."
I looked at Brooke, "What's your excuse, patry pooper?"
"I told you I didn't feel safe in here. I got dressed."
"Point taken. I'll be back there's someone that I have to talk to."
"Beth? Aren't you goin to get dressed?"
"Nope. They wanted to see me like this. And that's what they are going to get," I told her as I made my way to the mess hall.
"Should we go with her," Brooke asked Steph.
"No. I'm going to get dressed though. You coming with me?"
I opened the door and everyone was in there waiting for me and my friends. Too bad it was only me. "WHERE YOU AT PAUGH?!"
He surfaced from the kitchen, "Is there something wro- oh wow. Hello."
"What's the meaning of that? Do you do that to all your new female cadets?? Or just my friends and I because your all horny," I eagerly awaited his answer.
"I don't think I understand what your meaning?"
"Oh? You don't," I pulled out my gun and aimed it at him, "ANYONE WANT TO TELL HIM?? OR DOES HE HAVE TO BE SHOT FIRST?"
One guy stood up and told him, "Sir, you told us to use firecrackers to get them out in their underwear!"
"Ahh. And an honest answer comes out," I walked over to the guy and kissed him on the cheeck and forced him to sit, "And did you feel like lisetening to his orders?"
"THEN WHY DID YOU DO IT," I smacked him in the back of the head, "Moron!"
"Ma'am I implore you that I did-"
"I'll get to you Sgt! Will anyone tell me if he's telling the truth? Did your Sgt put you guys up to this? Or is this guy," I pointed my gun at his head, "lying to me to save that man?!"
Another guy stood, "Ma'am he is telling the truth. Sgt Paugh I could care less what my punishment is, but I will NOT to lie to a woman in her underwear with a gun!! I'm sorry!"
"Thank you," I turned to the Sgt, "You wanna come clean?"
He looked at me, "I'm sorry. I didn't think that you would get that angry."
"YOU DIDN'T THINK THAT WOULD MAKE ME ANGRY!!!!!! LOOK AT THE CIRCUMSTANCE THAT YOUR IN NOW," I said taking my shooting stance.
Stephany and Brooke walked in the door.
"SIS?! WHAT ARE YOU DOIN," Brooke asked me.
"THIS PERV DOESN'T NEED TO BE HERE!!!!! I'M TRYING TO DECIDE IF I WANT TO SHOOT HIM TO FEED HIM TO THE ZOMBIES THAT HE GOT THE ATTENTION OF!!!"
"Beth! It's not worth it! We have to show them what we know! He needs to know! Who's gonna lead these guys," Steph asked me.
I thought about it for a few minutes, "I will," I shot Sgt Paugh in the head, "You guys want to see something that you don't see in here!? Well do you?!"
The guys looked at me in disbeleif.
"I ASKED A QUESTION!!"
"Sis....what are you doing," Steph asked me.
"You said that we need to show them what goes on outside these walls, right? Well that's what I'm getting ready to do. Everyone outside by the gate!!"
Everyone got up and went to the gate.
I grabbed Paughs' body and drug it out to the gate, "Watch how ravinous these once human beings act." I grabbed my knife and cut him open like I would a deer and threw his liver over the gate.
The guys watched and a few threw up just watching me being splattered with blood and ripping their Sgt open. They have never seen anything like this before.
"Now watch!! This is what your Sgt wanted to keep us out in!! We have been in this since this began and you guys have been stuck in the compound with gates and electric fences. We had none of this luxary!! We had no one to confide on until we found eachother!!! Now there's more for you guys to see. We have videos from a store of people getting biten and then turned into these things! So do you want to watch them eat more of him or watch the video to see what we can do??"
"Watch the movie, Ma'am," one soldier said and the others agreed.
"Ok. Meet in the debriefing room in 20," I told them. I had Steph and Brooke help me try to get the rest of the body over the fence. After we did that I had to get myself clean and get dressed. I went to the bathroom and walked over to a sink. I turned the water on and cleaned off my face, neck and chest. I grabbed some paper towels and wiped off and walked back to the bunker to get dressed.
We walked into the debriefing room with all the DVDs.
"You sure about this, Beth," Brooke asked me, "Don't you think they have seen enough?"
"No that was just the beginning, sis," I told her.
"That and they need to know what can happen if they get bitten and don't inform anyone about it. And we have to tell them what we will do if they get bit," Steph told her.
"Yup. Ok everyone. Find a seat. This is the first time that we have watched this as well. This will take at least 9 hours to watch. so we will have bathroom breaks and lunch and dinner breaks. If you have to use the bathrooms now, I sugest you do so."
Some went to the bathroom and some stayed there to ask us questions.
"How did you manage to survive out there?"
"We did what we had to do. Kill and eat. We had an old club house and everything that we stayed at and had a fridge and cabinets to store food in."
"Where did you get the food?"
"Local food markets. Walmart, Meijer, wherever food was sold thats where we went. And when we couldnt find food we went out hunting and brought back deer, squirrel, rabbit, racoon, what ever we could eat we did."
Everyone came back in and we popped the first DVD in and sat down.
The DVD started playing through the projector and we all watched waiting for something to happen.
Walmart was packed, as it often is, and everything seemed normal. People were shopping, kids were crying when when their mothers said 'no' to candy, and toys. A strange acting man stumbled in the store.
I paused it, "Does anyone see anything weird, other than Brooke and Steph, on any of these 6 screens?"
No one said anything.
"Seriously," I pointed out the man that stumbled in the store, "No one thinks this man looks unusual?"
A few men raised their hands.
"Then why didn't you say anything? Their are no wrong answers here unless no one answers when theres something wrong. Keep your eye on that man," I said and unpaused it.
He walked around and people were walking past him staying out of his way and trying not to touch him. A few times he reached out for toddlers or old people, they moved the slowest. The mothers quickly picked up their children and slapped him and kept on going.
Eventually he got someone. An elder man who was walking at a very slow pace. The man grabbed the elder man by his shirt and flung him down. The elder man said something but there was no audio. He put his arms up and he was yelling, perhaps for help. A few people came to help him but the man yelled at them, and they backed off. The elder man tried to move away in time but couldn't.
The man moved the elder mans arms with ease and bit down on his neck. Many people were watching this man as he ate the elder man. Kids screamed and pearents tried to cover their mouths but it was to late. When the man noticed people panicing he went crazy. He ran at them and bit some and ate others.
Finally a police officer arrived and shot the man several times and then in the head. She shouted something to everyone in the store and they got their cell phones out and were dialing numbers.
"Now," I said pausing it again, "Did you see how quickly that man went from possibly being a public drunk to zombie? When your out there you can't trust ppl other than the people you know. And did you notice how many times that officer shot? That man wasn't even fazed. But when she shot him in the head that was the end of it. Which means....What?"
The guys where raising their hands left and right.
I pointed one guy, "You?"
"You have to take out the head to disable the body, Ma'am?"
"Oh nice! That's right. If you are close range then hand combat is nessicary. Knives are needed in this situation and you will have to cut off the head completely. Without getting bit. If you get bit and we see you get bit. One of us, or maybe your commrade, will not hesitate to shoot you in the head. It will be hard to do but it's the right thing to do, unless you want to get bitten or eaten by your buddy."
They looked at eachother and others in the room.
"I didn't think you would want to get eaten. So if you listen to my advice everything will be ok. Do you guys have an armory? With ammo? Not practice rounds or blanks?"
One guy looked at me, "Yea we do. I used to take inventory every week. Why?"
"Good. We need everyone to have a primary and sencondary weapons with tham all time, loaded and with safety on."
"Umm. May I ask why," the guy asked me.
"Because that fence can only last for long. Eventually they will get through and then we you all will be scrambling for weapons. Whereas if you have weapons with you at all times: if they get through you will have weapons to defend yourselves with and we will have very few deaths."
He stood up, "Well follow me and I'll take you guys to the armory."
"Ok. Everyone follow him and get weapons. You will sleep with them by your bed, take them to the bathroom with you, have them in the shower near you, and have them on your hip and back at all times. Even while eating. You may never know when something could go wrong. If you leave it, there will be consequences."
Everyone got up and followed him to the weapons bunker.
"Wow. They are listening to you," Brooke said.
"They don't really have a choice. Let's get ready to eat," I walked to the weapons bunker, "After you get your weapons, report to the mess hall. Were gonna have dinner and then off to bed. We have a long day tomorrow."
Everyone was in the mess hall. But no one moved when the food came out.
I stood up, "Ok you people irritate me. When food comes out just get up and get you some!!! Don't wait for us to get food first. You guys need to eat just as much as we do."
They got up and grabbed trays and plates.
"Ugh finally. I am hungry," Steph said.
We got up and got food. Chicken tenders, mac'n'cheese, and carrots. With the choice of sauces for your tenders. We sat back down and ate our food. This time it wasn't quiet. Everyone was talking about something.
I stood up in front of everyone, "Ok. When your done just put up your tray and head to bed. Don't forget your guns, please. And goodnight."
Me and the girls went to our bunker and took off our clothes and slept in our bras and underwear, it's comfy.
"Night guys," Brooke said.
"Night," Steph said.
"Night. We got a long day trainning these guys so I'm gonna need your help."
"You got it sis," they said.
We went to bed.
