It happened all so fast that he wasn't even sure WHAT was going on anymore. One moment he was simply minding his own business walking down the isles of the local grocery store in search of some munchies, and the next all hell was breaking loose and he was running for a back storage area for cover. People were going crazy!! If Joshua had ever listened to the news he might know a little of what was going on across the world. Some sort of viral epidemic that was causing massive death, but also massive reanimation. Yeah, that's right, the dead were coming back to life for no reason, and whatever it was was spreading fast! The store had become overrun with these maddened dead people seeking to rip into fresh flesh to feast. Josh and a few others managed to get to the back of the store and shut and lock the gates to keep the 'zombies' out. It was currently him, a store manager, a security guard, two girls who he thought might go to the same school as him, and another random male shopper. Joshua was your typical 20 year old college kid. He enjoyed his video games, working out, partying nights and weekends, and generally slacking off, but he still managed to pull good grades in all his classes. Joshua had a twin sister, but they'd not gotten along well for a very long time. Despite that, Joshua still carried a photo of them together Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler faded and worn from some chance civil encounter between the two. As the walking dead moaned and pounded on the gates trying to get in, the rag tag group of survivors huddled together trying to keep their calm. The manager was pacing back and forth, the two girls were huddled together in hysterics and tears, and the other shopper was sitting on a crate holding his arm, "man..aw man. Fuck..what the hell...shit, shit, shit..." he kept muttering and throwing out obscenities. Really the only level headed ones seemed to be Josh and the cop, but Josh was anything BUT calm at this point. He just managed to hide it well. "We gotta get outta here!" the male shopper said getting up, "We gotta move those things...they're going to try and kill us!" This only made the girls cry more. Josh sighed as he went over to try and console them, "Hey it's alright. We'll be okay. Yeah I think we'd best move I don't think that gate'll hold long I--" There was a rustling as suddenly from the shadows a figure shot forward and grabbed for the manager who was pulled back as teeth sunk into his flesh. The cop drew his gun and fired at the creature's head as it went down, but more were coming, "Run!" he said as the remaining group high tailed it away from the scene. "there has to be more of them out there! how are we going to get out!?" one girl said through her hysteric tears. "I've still got ammo. My car is parked around this side. Head toward the exit and i'll try to hold em off" So the group made their run for it. They were lucky that they weren't completely swarmed this time, but only Josh, the cop, and the girl who had asked how they were getting out made it. Staring out the window as they sped off, Josh wondered if his sister had been caught. Somehow it gave him both a satisfying and saddening feeling to think of her demise 'resident evil style' to the zombies. Just because he 'hated' her didn't mean she wasn't still family.
