For Tommy Curt, hiding in the closet was usually his way to escape his parents fighting or arguing. Who would have thought he would use it to hide from the undead creatures, breaking through the windows and doors of the house he now possesses. He lays his head on the door, and hears scratching and shuffling. Gripping the door handle, he slowly opens it, a large crack sends echoes traveling through the entire house. Suddenly Tommy can hear walking downstairs. He Swings the closet door open, and slams the bedroom door. Footsteps coming from downstairs echo through his mind, again and again. Tommy thinks to himself "Am I crazy?" Shortly after the footsteps sound much more closer, Tommy rushes to the window. The thought of being eaten alive rushes through his head, he quickly turns his head and hears banging, scratching, and moaning coming from the door. Tommy lifts his fingers under the window, with an attempt of lifting it. Trying to lift it, it was to heavy. Tommy thought once more about these creatures and the damage they can inflict, with just a simple bite or scratch, and he knows this first hand, in his own way. He can hear the door began to crack, and the wood breaking. So Tommy raised his fist, and thought of the pain, he released and the window smashed. Tommy didn't realize the blood dripping from his arm, to the cold, dirty, floor. So Tommy leaned his head out the window and lowered his leg, hoping to find a hard spot, or foot grip. Instead he lowered to fast and began sliding down the house, eventually landing on his back, cracking or possibly breaking a rib. Dragging his own body off the ground, and climbing to his feet was excruciating. Tommy stumbled down the road, with just his shadow to greet him Suddenly many shadows started appearing in the distance behind trees,cars, and even exiting houses. He quickly yells "Fuck!" before noticing a small garage, Tommy stumbles, thinking to himself "Come on you pussy, run faster!" Suddenly the curb of the sidewalk came out of nowhere. Tommy suddenly hit the ground, hard, landing on his rib. He lets out a small groan, swinging his head behind, he realized there twenty, thirty or these maniacs, coming right for him. Tommy closed his eyes, thinking "I'm fucked!" Quickly opening his eyes, one of these creatures was almost on top of him, a young woman, maybe in her twenties. She looked as if she had the black death, her skin was a greyish blackish murky color. Her eyes were lifeless, and Tommie's hand was on her neck. Holding her teeth far enough away from his face. His other hand holding her arm back, Tommy let out a long, loud grunt. Pummeling the young woman to the cement. Her teeth were grinding, and that sound kept repeating in Tommie's ears, again and again. Once again he thought to himself "Am I Crazy?" Pushing his body off the ground, was exhausting. He stumbled to get to his feet, standing straight pain stuck his rib, and his back. Tommy didn't care, so he made his way to the garage door, instead swinging his head behind him, noticing more then shadows, but the lifeless corpses that now roamed the streets, in search for food, and following any slight sound that could perhaps be heard in the big city of GledensVille. Tommy now faced the door, he rammed it with his shoulder. With the thought "Fuck this ain't going to work!" So Tommy Kicked the door, and his foot slid off like it had been greased up. Finally kicking the door, it swung open. Tommy made one last sweep of the street noticing much more activity then usual before he slamming the door, in the creatures faces. Facing away from the door, he let his body slide down the door, and hit the cold floor. His hand covered his eyes and he yelled "Fuck!" As he finally realized he was trapped, and the only way to get out, was to join the lifeless corpses of the living dead that now roam the abandon streets of GledensVille.
Tommy attempted to lift his body from the ground, it felt as if, he were super glued to the solid dirty, floor and he had to tear his body from it. Finally he made his way to his feet, taking baby steps, looking at the tools, that now lay in front of him. A small pipe caught his eye, Tommy grinned and lowered his hand, and a shadow caught his eye, coming from a corridor leading to god knows where. Tommy reached for the pipe, not removing his eyes from the corridor. Gripping the pipe, Tommy walked very slowly towards the corridor, with his eyes darting from the corridor to the pipe. Suddenly he heard a voice, and he rushed to the corridor. Running straight through the door, an excruciating pain rushed from Tommie's head down to his neck, as his body hit the cement hallway, and soon everything was black around him. Tommy opened his eyes, but everything in sight was blurry. Tommy held his hand on his head, trying to get rid of the headache that is pounding like music from a dance, behind his eyes and ears. Tommy rushed to his feet, realizing the metal pipe was now gone. Preparing himself for a fight, Tommy forced his hands into fists and started eyeing up his surroundings. It wasn't the garage, it looked more like basement or a cellar. Suddenly a voice spoke, but was distorted, then a woman, im guessing in her late twenties stood upon Tommy. She asked in a very nervous voice "Are you okay?" Tommy looked her in the eyes, and stated "Ive got a headache, and my rib hurts like a bitch." The woman raised her hand, and slowly moved it towards Tommie's chest. He jolted back, and the woman spoke nice and clear "Its okay, im not gonna gonna hurt you." Her voice was soothing, and somehow relaxing, Tommy dozed off thinking of dirty thoughts. Then she spoke "Yes your rib is cracked, and the headache is most likely from the blow you received." Tommy grinned and yelled "Wait you hit me? Why the fuck did you do that?" The woman leaned in and grabbed Tommie's jacked and brought her lips to his ear, and whispered "Keep your goddamn voice down. Those things are everywhere outside."Tommy looked her in the eyes, she had light blue eyes that had a very attractive spark, she looked gorgeous, Tommy thought to himself. Suddenly he stared into her blue eyes and whispered "How did I get here?" She rolled her eyes and whispered "I dragged you, the garage is part of my old home, don't worry were safe here," with a grin on her face. She got to her feet, and demanded "You must be starving we will eat supper in a few minutes, before we do you must go get cleaned up. There's water from the hose but don't swallow it, or get it in any cuts or your eyes, unless its boiled, we will eat shortly after." Tommy just looked up at her and stated "okay." in a low nervous voice, kinda like he doesn't believe it. The woman walked away and disappeared into the shadows and Tommy sat back leaned his head against the wall and many thoughts were racing through his head. Thoughts like "How could I have gotten so lucky?, was the woman serious, how much food could this woman possibly have,unless if maybe she was preparing for this whole thing. Is this really a place where we can call home?" Tommy just laid his head back and smiled as he thought about how the victorious feeling he will experience once the food is in his belly.
Tommy tried to lift his body off the ground, but it was no use. It felt as if his legs were broken and he couldn't gain any control over them. Tommy just laid his head back and closed his eyes. The woman appeared out of the darkness and asked "Are you okay? You look very pale and oh my god!" The woman froze in silence, holding her hand on her mouth. Tommy finally stood up and and stated "I'm fine." Realizing a very deep and long gash on his knee cap. Tommy put his hand on his mouth and locked eyes with the woman. He walked towards the woman and lost all control over his body, falling to the ground and hitting his face on a medal railing, before hitting the hard flooring set in the woman's basement. She rushed to his side, and Tommy can hear the distorted voice of the woman. Finally Tommy began to open his eyes, realizing he was now in a large room. Tommy was now laying on a bed, a nice soft bed, Tommy was enjoying himself, he hasn't laid in once of these for months. The thought rushed to his mind so Tommy lifted his pant leg up, realizing it was firmly bandaged. Dry blood painted his leg so Tommy scratched some of the dry blood off with his fingernail. Tommy then lifted his head off the pillow, and yelled "Hello?" His voice breaking he yelled again "Hello?" Then the woman walked in the doorway, covered in blood. Tommy leaned up and asked "My god, are you okay?" She locked eyes with him, and smiled, she stated "Actually this is all your blood, from your leg." Her eyes dart from Tommie's eyes to his knee. He leans off the bed, and pushes himself off, and slowly gains his balance. The woman rushes to Tommy, holding him, helping him take slow steps. She looked up at him and stated "You lost a lot of blood so be careful." Tommy stated "Its okay, I can walk now." Nervously she demanded "Here come downstairs and you can have something to eat, and we can talk." Tommy looked down at her eyes, and looked in a different direction, with a horrified look on his face. He followed down the hall, noticing pictures of her, and a little girl. Tommy looked down, and she held his arm. He pulled it away and yelled "I'm fine!" She grabbed his collar, and whispered "Look I saved your life, I gave you a place to stay, and im feeding you, so how about showing me some respect." He looked down at her, "Sorry I uhh," He looked down, a single tear ran down his face. The woman grabbed him and pulled him towards her body, she held Tommy deep within her chest and whispered "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to upset you or make you mad or anything. My name is Sarah by the way, and my daughters name is Lexi, Shes upstairs. I don't know how shes doing, Hopefully okay." Tommy looked down at her, and stated "My names Tommy, I used to have a girlfriend, but she passed away long before all of this of breast cancer, I uhh, I used to have a daughter, but uhhhh, she." Tears started soaking Tommie's face, he then stated "The only way I escaped the hospital was because the dead were to distracted from eating my daughter to come after me." One Single tear fell from Tommie's face, down to Sarah's shirt, Sarah then grabbed him and brought him in to a full hug.
