I'm always ready for some thing to happen,but i'm not sure anybody is really ready for this i told JOSE .First we need information, then we can make a plan he told me and it sounded like a good idea. So we watched the news for about a half hour,it wasn't good.People who were infected were as good as dead so we shouldn't even try to help them.We had to find a strong place to try and ride it out, the paper thin walls and hollow core doors of any apartment wouldn't hold very long,i should know i build them.Supplies we would need were pretty obvious food ,water,weapons,ammo,and some kind of communication device since the cell phone grid was already failing.Three times i had tried to use my cell to call some friends in the last half hour and all i got was a technical problems recording from the cell company.SHIT was this really happening i asked myself NO it can't happen .This was probably just a bad flu bug ,combined with the medias reporting and usual habit of blowing everything out of proportion.I remembered hurricane katrina ,the media was reporting about armed gangs shooting at helicopters,dozens and dozens of murders and gang rapes in the superdome. It was all lies but the truth didn't come out untill months later.This was just media generated hype.BBRRRRTTTT,BBRRRTTT, BBBRRRRRTTT the sound of my vibrating cell on Jose's coffee table brought me back to reality,it was one of my friends from work Howie, he was calling me from his place 30 miles away he told me he just killed three people and he sounded freaked out.SHIT now i knew this was real . Howie was a combat vet from the first gulf war and had seen serious action as a sniper in Bosnia,if he was as scared as he sounded this was a very bad situation we were all in . He told me he was picking up his wife early from her job as a nurse at the small clinic in their town,because the governer had ordered all medical buildings closed because they were a major point of infection.When he got to the clinic he was shocked national guard troops were locking the doors and barring the windows he could hear shouts and screams for help coming from the inside of the small country clinic.His wife was outside waiting for him at a small command tent.He told me what she said ,people who were infected would die in less than twelve hours and come back to life less than an hour after that.It was the bite of other infected people that spread the virus.As he got home he saw his neighbor in his front yard with blood covering his face,as soon as he got of his truck his neighbor ran at him trying to bite him and he killed him with the old double barreled shotgun he kept behind the seat of his truck.As they both made it inside his house another one was banging at the door ,he blew his head off thru the door.he quickly grabbed some supplies and got on the road. He asked if their was anything happening in my town, and i said no it was cool except for some heavier traffic but no one was getting attacked as far as i knew.He asked if he and his wife could come over and i said of course.Twenty minutes he was at my door.He asked me what i thought we should do.I never thought of myself as a leader, i was happy to go along with the group and tried not to be in charge but people were always asking me to be in charge even people older than me and then doing what i asked of them.I was already working on a plan in my head it might work so i told them all what i was thinking and asked for some of their ideas.About a half hour later we had what i thought was a good plan.Now lets see if it works???
