Episode 3: Trapped In Salvation (Part 1)
The sound of the door to the bedroom was loud as it opened
slowly. I couldnt think of a way to get rid of the body fast
enough so i just threw a blanket over the corpse of my dead
girlfriend. Sabrina, my 5 year old daughter, came out from the
bedroom rubbing her eyes. As Sabrina kept walking towards the
living room where i was, i kept thinking of what to tell her if
she asked about it.
Yawning and still rubbing her eyes sleepily, she had asked me
what the loud noise was. I couldnt freak out my innocent little
daughter so i told her that it was the storm and a wolf was in
the woods behind the house.
"Oh....Ok daddy. I'm going back to bed now ok?" She told me as
she walked back into her room. I smiled in relief and told her
that i would be there to say goodnight again in a few minutes and
she nodded and closed the door.
I look back at the body, "Great, now i have to deal with you." I
started to drag her out the back door through the kitchen and
into the woods. I got a few hundred yards out before i called it
quits and went back inside.
As i locked the back door of the house, i heard the door open
again but when i turned around i saw 3 zombies in the doorway and
another 2 go into Sabrina's room. I start to hear Sabrina yell in
terror but it was too late......the 2 zombies started to eat her
away while the other 3 lunged at me.
I wake up in another cold sweat like last time but im screaming.
As im screaming, i start to hold my side in pain then lay back
"Dylan! He's awake!"
"Miguel! Chad, bring the doctor. Hurry!" Dylan holds my hand and
tries to reassure me that everything will be ok before chad and
the doctor come into the room. More doctors come in and tell
dylan and chad that they have to leave the room so they can
sedate me and control me so i dont start bleeding out. But just
as Dylan and Chad leave, i pass out again.
They go back to their room and Dylan sits on the bed thinking
while chad thinks that she's sad about the whole thing. Dylan
then starts writing everything she remembers about the prison
that makes it so safe, and what i had said before i passed out.
She found a secret passage that leads away from the Zombs but it
can only fit 5 at a time. Chad realizes what she plans to do but
dylan is already determined to find another safe zone for
everyone.....and to find a cure.
