“MANNEQUINS”

Season one episode one

August seventh 2017, its funny how life changes within the blink of an eye. One day you’re with your family or loved ones the next you’re trapped in the middle of the woods at night alone and hunted by something. 

Suddenly I woke up on a bed. I was in complete darkness. I got up from the bed and stood to my feet for the first time in a while. I tried to find the wall so I could navigate myself in the dark. I searched for a light switch. I found one. I turned the light on and in one blink of the eye the darkness was gone. I was in some sort of run down shack. There was a small bed followed a refrigerator and a table. The windows were all boarded shut. The door was locked from the inside. “Where was I?” I thought to myself. I remember just yesterday I was out bowling with my wife and daughters. I remember we were leaving our daughters and my wife was in the car. I had just finished paying. I stepped outside I did not see the speeding car. Someone had just robbed the bowling alley I remember my wife screaming my name. I looked up from the bill in my hand and froze as the car was headed right at me. The driver didn’t stop. Didn’t even hesitate he hit me. I flew up in the air. And hit the ground. “Oh god am am I dead? Is this heaven? Hell? Purgatory? All I could think of was how am I alive? Suddenly a voice interrupted my thoughts. “Good you’re awake.” “Who are you?” I asked. “My name is Raven. You were in a bad shape, you’re lucky to be alive.” “Yeah. Ugh my head hurts. Where am I?” I asked the voice. “There is a note over on the side table you need to read it, it will explain everything.” I got up and grabbed the note and began to read the letter.

“I brought you here. You were hit by a speeding car. Now there was no time to take you to the hospital I am a doctor I did what I could to help. Your family is safe that’s what is important. This next part will be hard to understand and you will be confused for a long time I get that and understand. You have been out for over two months. It is now December 7th, it gets worse. We are in the beginning of the Apocalypse. Every day I came down to the shed to check on you. I knew you would make it because you were breathing. I locked the doors and boarded up all the windows for your protection. There are creatures out at night. No this isn’t a zombie apocalypse. It’s worse. What you need to know is that under the table is a backpack. That fridge is fully stocked. Take as much food and drinks as you can carry. There is a coat on the coat hanger near the door. Take that coat, in the right pocket is a gun and in the left is ammo. Now I have placed a map inside the back pack with my exact coordinates you’re family are with me. Safe and sound however when you read this chances are it will be dark out. It is extremely dangerous to go out at Night these creatures hunt in packs and I mean in big groups it isn’t safe for you as anxious as you may be, wait until Morning and leave.” 

“The apocalypse? I’ve been asleep for two months? This is crazy this can’t be.” I say out loud. “Oh it is” the voice said. “What creatures?” I asked. “Mannequins” dangerous ones. You won’t stand a chance against on your own. “Mannequins? Like plastic dummies at the mall?” “Yes but far more intelligent than you can imagine.”
