All of them were zombies. Every single person who died for what ever reason became zombies that week.
Also a good thing to know is the Turenne, like the zombie despise water. Though unlike the zombie it does not kill them immediately. It seems to rather weaken them and slow them down. Though it has been confirmed that prolonged contact with water will kill them.
Both Grace and Rebecca lived in the bosses private office on the seventh floor of the main Santec electronic solutions building in Durban.
Every morning *before the illness killed everyone) Rebecca had come in at seven to work and left as soon as humanly possible to get on with her social life. She hadn't left the building or her own floor in a year now. Every night for a year both Grace and Rebecca sat staring at the beach through the tinted bomb proof windows of the office. The zombies(or Slawe as Grace preferred to call them) lived inside too. They moved around in their floor though hiding from them had become easy. Except during the day or during full moon, then any movement was impossible.
"This radio station has made contact for the first time with other stations but we have not been able to communicate fully just yet. We will report any news from that. In even bigger news we have a cell phone tower! Yes a cell phone tower has been activated but it can at the cost of three lives. Xolani Getali died without turning, the other two group members Gerald Van Dyk and Vennessa Van Dyk turned when they died. I witnessed the transformation with my own eyes. It took the first one and hour to transform into a Turenne. The other…
We didn't wait for her to turn. They are in all our prayers.
Please any one with a cell phone on them I beg you try calling us. Our number is 011 345 9802 please I implore you to call us. We will try and retrieve you, if we can't then try you're best to come here to us. We can give you food and security and the promise that you won't be alone in this.
If there is a way for you to get here, our location is on what's left of the Durban waterfront, there are other points across the three piers in and around town. We are situated on a ocean liner. You'll be able to see it from the beach. If you find your self in a desperate situation, swim out to sea and we'll pick you up. Use a boat if possible there are a few set up along the beaches. Fortunately the Turenne's fear of wat-
There was no guarantee that there weren't any Turenne on their floor or in the building and it was a fact that all Turenne attacked closed doors. So Rebecca and Grace had both decided it was safer to leave the door unlocked and slightly open. The radio said that neither of the creatures could see well at night. Thepair had seen that fact for themselves, it had most likely kept them alive till now. Theysat out in the open next to their mountain of tables half facing the open door and half facing the beach. There was another separate table that they would run into at night if the moon came out and caught them off guard. They'd used it to survive on three occasions.
The thought of those frightening first few months made Rebecca cringe and the many precautions they took were beyond depressing. Rebecca squeezed the handle of her gun for comfort. Her whole body shivered when she heard the sound of a door slamming open nearly causing her finger to pull on the trigger exposing their position. The noise had completely shattered her nerves and now suddenly she felt like she was at the breaking point when less than ten seconds ago she had been completely calm following her boring routine. It wasn't their door but it didn't sound too far off. The beginnings of tears and a silent cry welled up inside of Rebecca. It started with normal breathing but it got heavier and a tiny noise came out as Rebecca almost literally started choking up. Grace held Rebecca in her arms while sitting behind her and rocking Rebecca in her arms.
Rebecca bit into Grace's shirt to stop from making a sound as her whole body heaved. Grace kissed Rebecca on her temple brushing Rebecca's hair with her lips to calm her down.
"It's me" Rebecca whispered in her ear ever so quietly. When Grace calmed down fully they pushed their way across the sideways laying pine table into the mountain of plastic tables which lay against the wall like a frozen tent. It was a tight fit but they managed like they always had and without touching any of the sides so they never made any noise.
They were force fully in each others embrace now. This was how it worked, this way they would both weigh each other down so there was no extra movement that would give them any. It had hurt before but they were used to it after so many months.
'I love you' mouthed Rebecca and Grace mouthed it back. Rebecca laughed silently and Grace grinned. Rebecca said it again and Grace said 'I love more'. Rebecca shook her head, it was impossible for Grace to love Rebecca more than she did. They went back and forth until Rebecca shuffled even closer than they already were and their lips touched. But they never kissed fully because kissing tended to make a sound that could be heard and they weren't willing to take a chance. Rebecca's lips moved slowly exploring Grace's cheek crossing over until Rebecca lips and tongue were on Grace's neck. Rebecca stopped there since Grace was wearing two jackets for the cold of the night. Grace got the chills a lot easier than Rebecca did even though she was the older one by at least three years and had a whole extra jacket. Rebecca felt a hand on hers, it was warm and gentle. It lifted her hand to Grace's chest and onto Grace's jacket. Rebecca pulled the zip and found that her shirt was backwards. Rebecca grinned at Grace who grinned back. Grace had clearly thought about this beforehand. Rebecca couldn't think of when the hell she had done it. Their lips touched again.. They made love silently but passionately while touching each other as gently as possible. It wasn't awkward or difficult. Rebecca reasoned it was because they loved each other and therefore it was easy. It was because they were meant for each other. Rebecca held Grace's mouth as she came and Grace held Rebecca's mouth as Rebecca came. Rebecca had to fight not to make a sound as Grace's fingers gave one of the best climaxes she'd ever had in her life. She bit into Grace's palm while pushing Grace's head deeper into her chest. Their entire bodies were wrapped around each others and moving in perfect sync. Within minutes Rebecca fell asleep. Grace stayed awake for an hour before she too fell asleep.
Finally it was dark enough to move and Grace was the first to stir. She patted Rebecca on the head and pushed her head down. Rebecca slid down and turned her body so she could flip herself around like a car reversing out of a drive way. She stuck her gun out first, then poked her head out fully with her breath held tight while she waited.
It was Grace, she was clinging onto Rebecca. A white eye popped through the door and stayed there. Rebecca shut her eyes and prayed silently. The smallest notice would be a fatal mistake. There was a gargling roar from the door, it went on for a minute before Rebecca heard the door creak further. Rebecca wanted to scream as she clung to her Berretta as if it was the rope that kept her from falling off the edge of the world.
Creaking only happened when the door was opening and that was obviously bad. Grace let go of Rebecca and Rebecca's leg cringed folding itself into Rebecca's torso. The whole time Rebecca hadn't opened her eyes. She waited for five minutes before she opened them. The white eye ball was gone and so was Grace's silhouette.A hand clamped on Rebecca's mouth, there was a second where Rebecca was beyond screaming her heart felt as if it was about to explode.
It was a mini fridge. It only had a few items in it but they were a welcome sight to Rebecca. She pulled out a bottle of water and an Oats chocolate health bar before closing the fridge and flipping the switch on again. Rebecca put the chocolate bar under her shirt then and slowly opened it hopefully muffling the sound of the wrapper. She passed the water to Grace and measured out the chocolate bar bending it carefully so Grace got the bigger share. Rebecca heard the gentle pop of spring water opening for it first time. Normally they recycled the water from the ice the fridge always accumulated and a few times from their own urine but that never worked out well at all for them. A plastic cup appeared out of the darkness, Grace unsurprisingly had given her extra water. She always did. Rebecca drank gratefully. The water was great and Rebecca would have killed for more but that was the weeks rations of fresh water. For the rest of week it would be recycled water only. They also wouldn't have another bar for chocolate or health bar three days. Rebecca shuffled her way across the side of the wall past the fridge to Grace and the radio. Rebecca put her earphones on to listen and Grace winked ather. They were face to face now Rebecca grinned as she heard the sound of their favourite radio host.
