See, it was a few years ago back when the shit was just starting to hit the fans and civilization had just collapsed. a... very close friend had heard a rumor that it was safer up north, what most people thought back then... how wrong we where. i told her it was dangerous to go alone. she said she would take any help she could get. so... i WAS supposed to head with her until the state boundary... but a few dumb asses thought it would be a good idea to try and set up an ambush at a gas station we stopped at, let me tell you something about those "bandits". they don't know how to stalk. at all. i told her to stay in the car while i fueled it up. saw them coming a mile away... pulled out my m4 and just wasted the ones hiding from behind the car, its all a blur now, but i remember screaming at the top of my lungs "im gonna fuck your shit up kid!!" while i was busy killing anything i could see, my travel buddy got stolen from the car. i feared the worst, that they were gonna... we all know. so when i realized they abducted her, i wounded one of them, and told him to tell me where they were camping out, " a motel 8" how many there were " enough to kill you" and what they were armed with "guns, you dumb ass mother-" he never finished his last word. i found the motel easy enough, idiots never covered there tracks... and was surprised to see those idiots swimmin' in the pool, at least six of them, so i pulled out the only grenade iv ever found and chucked it there way. two guys rushed out screamin' some Spanish. my m4 took care of that, i muttered a quick prayer to anything and rushed the motel, riot kicking in every door i could find till i found who i was looking for, a dumbass, his friend, and my buddy, taped to a chair. they were fighting over the fist turn, till they noticed me. one guy pulled out his pistol and took a shot, only to hit his friend who rushed at me with a ball peen. i knew that if i sprayed it would kill my friend, her name was Paige.... so i had to try to kill them in the worse way possible for me, with my crowbar. i reached for it as fast as i could and pushed back the pistol slinger, he fumbled and dropped his gun, i wasted no time in beating his brains in, his buddy on the floor was twitching, he got hit in the spine. another swing of my trusty crowbar later, i cut her free, and she said "id hug you, but your covered in blood". "we'll deal with pleasantries later, right now we should grab what we can and go, those zombies probably heard the commotion from miles away." we grabbed everything we could, which was a few pistols, a fridge full of beer and a plastic barrel of pretzels. when we got back to the car, and found a place to bunker down for the night, i vomited. it was the first time id ever killed a person... Paige asked if i was okay, "fine.. just... " i was about to tell her it was my first time killing anyone, but she grabbed me and kissed me, saying " thanks" i forgot to mention one other thing, there was a plastic bag full of condoms, now i know what your thinking, " the end of the world is no time for romance" but hell, if there was a good chance i could die every day, i sure as hell wasn't gonna die a virgin.
