I have never been afraid of anything. Until a couple of days ago. On the news It said there has been an infection spreading around. We have gone into lockdown. All doors and windows are boarded shut. Which is fine by me. No school. But, I've just got a really bad feeling about all this. Yesterday, my father went to the Wal-Mart in Clarksville, to stock up on supplies. He has not come home yet. I fear for his life. We continue to watch the news, and they keep telling us the same thing. STAY IN YOUR HOUSE. DO NOT GO OUTSIDE FOR ANY REASON. I am afraid to even imagine what could be creeping out there. Maybe they have him! Maybe I'm just being paranoid. I'm sure he's okay.
I'm not sure about the condition of the infection. We have been given very little info. I don't know if I want to find out. I hope Paige is alright. Paige is my girlfriend of two years. I've sent her several texts, but haven't gotten a reply yet. I feel so helpless right now. If anything happens to her, I would never forgive myself.
My whole world is spinning slower than usual. Every sound makes me jump. I've been on edge ever since the first report. We have no firearms. If they manage to get into the house, we would be defenseless! I plan to get right on that. But for now, I pray nothing goes terribley wrong. They say, there is nothing to fear, but fear itself. I hope to christ that is true.
