Once upon a time, my world was normal.
There is no going back to the way it was. In a matter of days, we have seen devastation and chaos take over. It’s spreading fast, too fast to fix, leaving society in ruins and turning cities into ghost towns.
People are disappearing quicker than I would have ever expected. In the short time we have been on the road I haven’t seen many people, but the zombies are everywhere. They walk around aimlessly, in search of fresh meat … in search of us. It’s probably safe to assume that anyone who has survived so far has gone into hiding, only to come out when they need something.
Most people were not prepared for the shit hitting the fan. And very few of those who did prepare actually thought it would be a fucking zombie apocalypse; I sure as hell didn’t think it would be what fucked up our world. I was more concerned about a nuclear war, or China finally wanting to collect on all that money we owe them. I don’t know, anything but zombies.
At this point, Kylee and I have to take it one step at a time. My family is far away from where we are, and Kylee’s home is closest, so that is our first destination.
Each day is a different adventure and a new test of our strength. Our friendship has been strengthened, but tested at the same time. Ky and I, we are two very different people, and in some ways it’s a challenge to be around each other for very long.
In other ways, it’s a balance. She strengthens me where I am weak and makes me see a softer side when I am too harsh, which I tend to be more than I want to admit. I’d like to think that it’s the same for her as it is with me.
One thing I know for certain is that I wouldn’t be able make it through this without her. I guess if you’re going to be stuck smack in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, it’s always a plus to be stuck there with your best friend.
Onward we go, each day bringing us a little bit closer to our loved ones … our husbands and children, the people we would die for. Hopefully, when we find them, they will be alive.
