Four years it has been since the eradication began. Yet still the humans linger on with desperate hopes of survival. Such fools. If they were meant to survive, god would not have sent me to punish them! Look what their destruction and sin has lead them to. I merely sent a set this all into action to expose the weak and get rid of them, but they turned it into an all out pandemic, a war. Don't they see they sealed their own pitiful fate by starting this. Worthless humans were not destroyed by me or their precious god. No, they were destroyed by themselves. Repent the sinners of the world for punishment shall be just, and punishment for the level of man kinds sins? Death. Smiling I watch the human world slowly crumble around me as the natural wild life encroaches on old territories. This is how it should be. A life without man...this is how it should be. To be with God...we must all repent! To truly emanate his holy heaven we must cleanse the world of the darkness and sin we've brought upon it. So by death we bring the rebirth, and with rebirth we bring our salvation! But first...to finish the task before me so the true purification can begin! ~~ Lita was currently crouched behind the remains of an abandoned Pontiac Grand Am. The metal was eroding away, the windows long since gone, and the top collapsed in. Making sure that her rifle was properly loaded and ready, she listened carefully to the sounds around her. It had taken her a good time to track down the deer and get them to stop moving. They were now currently grazing on the long wild grass growing between the cracks of the city street. The world was a dark place, rarely did the sun seem to fully shine above them except on rare occasion that the smog filled skies lessened and let the warm light shine through. Everything held a drab brown and gray color to it as decay ate away at buildings and machines. Lita was lucky if she could find a working radio signal, but she knew they existed. Most technologies were dead, but some still functioned on modified terms. The deer lifted its head, it's jaw moving back and forth as it chewed on the thick clump of grass, and it's ears flicked as it listened for signs of trouble. Slowly Lita turned and took very careful aim upon the docile creature. Just a little bit longer. Wait for it. Wait for it. Suddenly there was a deep growl as a pack of wolves charged through from the other side and scattered the deer in freight. Lita cursed as she quickly ducked and grabbed her things. One or two wolves she might be able to handle, but a pack? Best for her to get out of there before. Well never mind. One of the wolves had caught her scent and gave a long howl as it and another two charged in her direction while the rest stalked the scattering deer. It was times like this Lita really wished Aaron hadn't been an idiot and gotten himself killed by the infected three weeks ago. Hunting alone could be a hassle sometimes! The wolves began to get into formation preparing to surround her she needed to think quickly. There was a loud cry suddenly as the wolf was rammed aside by a large figure of a man. However, it wasn't a man really. Lita, startled, fell forward to a halt as she turned back. An infected man raged forward picking up another wolf and lifting it into the air as it snapped the creature's back with a sickening crunch noise. The other wolves backed slowly away and retreated. Lita's eyes widened some as she pushed her sunglasses up on the bridge of her nose, "fuck.." she breathed quietly. Her sudden voice alerted the infected as his milky eyes turned to stare her down, drool foaming at the corners of his mouth. Hunger evident in his gestures. He tossed the dead wolf aside suddenly. Wasting no time she got to her feet and opened fire upon the infected as he moved toward her. Luckily the shots landed as the infected man collapsed only a foot from her in a pool of its own blood. She carefully stepped around it and scoped the area. Where there was one there was bound to be others, and such gunfire would be a signal to them that she was there. Going over to the carcass of the wolf she made quick work to get what meat she could and prepared to head back to her makeshift shelter. Overhead the smog began to thicken and the cry of infected far away echoed in her ears. Another day in hell.
