“Damn it! Damn it! Damn it!! Stay away!” Alexandria shoved the rake onto the heads of the countless number of walking dead creatures that surrounded the perimeter of her house, trying to prevent them from climbing up to the roof. Beads of perspiration slowly rolled down her face as she started panicking, not having a single action plan. The smell of the dead wafted in the air, making her almost puke. She started climbing higher and higher on her roof, staring down at the crowd of the undead that started gathering around her house. She cringed at the sight as one of the zombie’s arm fell off. She searched around for an escape route. It was impossible for her to escape since her house isn’t a double storey house. Before all of this happened, it was a normal day for her. Well, not really normal. When she woke up to get ready for school, her parents were missing, not even a single note on the fridge. Thinking they left for work in a rush, she got ready as per normal. When she was in school, most of her classmates were absent for the day, only a handful showed up. When the school day ended, she left school for home. That was when she realised that everything was out of place. Mrs Smith, the old lady that lived a few yards away from her, wasn’t standing on her lawn, watering her plants and greeting Alexandria a ‘Good afternoon’, like she always does. Or, the Junior High kids that liked to hit Alexandria’s head with their soccer ball. And, that old man that liked to glare at anybody who passes by his house. They were all missing. It just seemed too quiet for her. She knew something was wrong but she didn’t bother it too much. Without bothering to change out of her school uniform, she sat in front of the TV and switched on her game console. That was when she noticed one of the zombies staring at her from outside her house, attempting to enter the house. After that, she jumped up, quickly grabbing her school bag and emptying it, then filling it with important necessities like food, water and first aid. She rushed to the backyard, grabbed the first thing she found that seems dangerous and climbed up to the roof with the ladder. And then kicking down the ladder so that none of them would climb up. Back to the present time, she still sat atop of her roof, looking for an escape route. The walking corpses won’t climb up onto the roof to get her. Or will they…? She thought. She sighed in frustration while combing her hand through her hair, “This seemed a lot easier in the video games…” She narrowed her eyes to the left, and spotted the family jeep that was parked at the side of her house. Why didn’t I think of that earlier?! She grabbed her rake and made sure her backpack was tightened so it wouldn’t fall off. She breathed in and out, trying to calm herself down. She took a few steps back before sprinting and jumping down. She landed, back first, onto the jeep, her rake was on the pavement next to the jeep. All of the heads were turned to her. Immediately, they started moving towards her, slowly. She rolled down from the jeep, picked up her rake and entered the driver’s seat. She tossed her bag and rake onto the passenger seat, next to her. Without putting her seatbelt on, she switched on the engine and sped onto the main road, silently thanking that the keys were left in the jeep. From the rear mirror, the zombies from earlier were still chasing her but as she sped, their figures grew smaller. The only thing she could think of is her safety. She already has a feeling her parents were already one of them. "I just have to keep driving till I find shelter... or a Walmart." she assured herself.
