April 18th 6:45 AM I was woken by a loud ringing in my ear. It turns out that i left my T.V on all night and an emergency broadcast was playing. I woke up rubbed my eyes and started to listen to the broadcast that was playing on T.V. The guy on the broadcast was Michael Ramon from channel 7 news. The look on his face was making me nervous because he looked really scared. With a shaky but deep voice he told us “ All residents of Dade County please stay in your homes if you're not in a home go to one quickly. All those bitten have some kind of viruses that kills you but somehow brings you back to life. Those who are bitten should not be around your family, friends, or any other citizens. All hospitals are shut down from riots and Infected.” When i heard him say infected all i can think about is all those zombies movies i've watched with my friends. How can i not notice that the bites were zombie bites. I get up hoping my family came back from the hospital last night and they are not still there. As i'm walking around the house all i can hear is scratching on the garage door. I look at the door wondering what that scratching sound is coming from. Then i heard my dog bark as if he was hurt so i open the door and let him in. When i go to pick him up i see that he was bitten on his neck. First thing that comes to my head is do i have to kill my own dog the one i've raised since he was three months old. I realized i wouldn't have the strength to do it but then i realized he stopped breathing so in no time he would be back but he wouldn't be my dog anymore. So I get the hammer from the garage and i close my eyes. Right before i'm about to strike i open my eyes and look at him and memories start to fill my mind. “I can’t i just can’t” i said so i lock him in the bathroom. I start to walk around the house with my hammer to make sure that i'm the only one home. Then i hear my phone ringing from my room. I run to my phone hoping that its my aunt and cousins and that there safe and on there way home. It turns out to be Chris. So i answer the phone and he asks me if i saw the emergency broadcast and i tell him yes. He tells me he was left alone with his grandmother and that she was also bitten last night. He asks me what should he do i tell him lock yourself in another room she can turn into one of the infected at anytime. As i'm on the phone with chris Jordan calls me so i three way the call. Jordan and Cameron are yelling on the phone that Cameron's mom is infected and she is trying to break into the bathroom where they locked themselves in. At this point i am speechless and cannot even think of what to say to calm them down. As there screaming through the phone i can hear the scratching and yelling coming from Cameron's mother and Jordan's grandmother. I am afraid just from listening and i can hear Chris starting to breath harder. I mute the phone to just think i then unmute the phone and tell Cameron and Jordan to look in the bathroom for any weapons they can use and Cameron tells me that his father kept an extra gun in the bathroom just in case. I tell them “you're going to have to use it”. Jordan screams “ No way that's my grandma!” Cameron tells him “Dude it's the only way unless you want to become what she is. You know this cheap ass door wont last long.” jordan replies “Do we really have to?” Cameron says “it's the only way.” The phone gets silent and out of nowhere i hear a big bang. Chris and i are still on the phone trying to see if Cameron and Jordan are alright but we hear no reply. I start to worry that two of best friends are dead or worse one of the infected. A couple minutes later me and Chris are still on the phone silent because we can believe what happened then we hear a rattle coming from the phone and its Cameron and Jordan. A great relief is released but quickly put back on because Chris reminds us that his grandmother is bitten and he is home alone with her. Ideas start to go through my head of ways i can save my friend but none of them were logical. I tell Chris that he should quickly find a way out of the house and go to Cameron and Jordan’s house since they are neighbors he would be safer there. Cameron and Jordan agree but then we hear a loud scratching noise and its Chris’s grandmother she turned into one of the infected. Chris starts to panic screaming “ I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO” i tell him stay there and that Cameron , Jordan, and I were on the way. I get nervous and think to myself how can i possibly save him. Since i live five houses down from chis and six houses down from Cameron and Jordan i change out of my pajamas and put on some outside clothes and put on my running shoes. I get the mop stick and start to run as fast as i can up the block to save my friends. I go to Cameron and Jordan’s house first because they have the gun. Soon after we run up to Chris’s front door and realize the door is locked there was no way for us to get in. Chris’s house had bars covering the window so they only way to get in or out is through the front door. Standing in front of his house trying to find ways to get in we hear chris bang on the window crying out for help. We told him there was no way for us to get in because the front door was locked. He told us that his grandmother has nearly broken the door and she was going to get in the room at any moment. Cameron told chris to take the gun and that the gun was his only chance to stay alive. So Cameron pushed the gun through the bars covering Chris’s windows and into the room where Chris was hiding. Cameron says “I took the safety off so all you have to do is pull that trigger”.
