Dead On Arrival: Chapter 12- What Lurks Below

Warning: Suggestive language referring to rape. Then violence of course. Duh.

Chapter 12: What Lurks Below
I saw it’s lights and heard it’s engine. It was set to collide into me, but somehow I escaped. I was laying on the ground when it came to a halt and Vince laid beside me. He had saved me. Yes, he had pushed me out the way, but he laid motionless now.
I instantly feared the worse, but then he sat up groaning. “That was close. You alright?” he said breathing heavily.
I didn’t know rather to hit him or punch him. I was confused. Just minutes ago he was plotting with Mark to steal from me. Had I heard wrong? Maybe, but there was no time for that. No time at all. Walkers. About a dozen of them were making their way onto my property and the car that almost hit us drew more. It’s horn blaring. It’s bright lights shining. Both could bring walkers by the droves if not dealt with.

“Audrey, I just want to say that what you heard…,” Vince started.

“Shut it. Where’s Mark?” I asked impatiently. I looked around and found Mark a few feet away checking out the car. “We need to clean this mess up. The walkers and the car. See if the driver is alive.”

“But…wait. Where are you going?” Vince yelled as I began walking towards the shed. I looked back briefly and retorted back, “I’ll deal with you and him later if you’re still here. I need to protect the bunker. I need to protect my uncle’s legacy.”

I didn’t bother to stay for a response. I ran back wasting no time and climbed down to see the place under siege. Two men dressed in black crowded around the shelves of can goods while a drunk David remained hostage in the corner thanks to cuffs I found in his back pocket.

The men seem too enthralled with their stolen goods though to be bothered with David or me, but I made my present known. “So which one of you want to die first?” I said brandishing my blade.

The men both looked over at me and then at each other. One of them came forward with an eye patch over his eye.

“Remember me? Small world isn’t it?” he laughed.

“Oh yeah, you’re the dickhead who’s face I fucked up. How convenient! Now I can put you in the fucking grave I promised you.”

He cocked his gun. “In your dreams princess!”

The bullet glided pass me and I jumped out the way. My ears ranging from the sheer volume of it as it echoed off the walls. I jumped up feeling disoriented, but I quickly recovered and rushed forward catching him off guard. My blade swung without fear and I made contact slicing into his arm. He dropped the gun screaming in pain, but he lunged forward tackling me to the floor.

My katana flew across the room. We struggled, but my adversary proved to be a stronger opponent. He pinned me down and wrapped his hands around my throat strangling me.
“Bitch. Why don’t you just die!” he roared as hatred filled his eyes.

I began to lose strength as my airways constricted. Then he released me looking down at me coldly. I turned over eyeing my katana near David, but he put his foot on me almost warning me not to move.

“David?” I whispered.

“That fucker can’t help you. No one can,” my captor laughed. “If only you had just been a good girl and let me bunk with you. Let me have some of your glorious food.”

I gazed up at him. His face was twisted in an evil grin. He began unfastening his pants and looking down hungrily. I stared at David hoping he had heard me. Hoping he was willing to help, but he remained still. Only his eyelids flickered.
Roy’s boy came closer standing above me. “Now you’re going lose it all. You’re going regret hurting me… but it’s OK. You’re going be hurting soon girl. It’s been awhile since I got laid.”

I turned over staring at him. It was probably the first time in this new world I felt vulnerable. I felt powerless. Not even Mark’s knife against my throat could evoke these feelings. I was afraid. I was ready to plead for my life. For my dignity. Then something slid across the floor towards me. My katana. I looked up at David who lifted his head slightly and winked.

I was sure he saw it or least heard it, but something had caught his eye. His henchman. I had forgotten about him. He had grown quiet during the struggle. He was supposed to be finishing the job while the asshole finished me off, but the guy was slumped over in the corner now. Blood slowing pouring from a bullet hole in his abdomen. A stray bullet must have killed him, but he was waking up now. Neither alive or quite dead. Rasping and groaning like one of the zombz with no evidence of a bite.
There was no mourning for him though. No remorse. His accomplice seemed unfazed by his death or what he had become. Instead, he turned his attention back to me.

I remained silent laying flat on my stomach. My sword hidden under my body. “You know you don’t have to do this. You can walk away now. Save yourself,” I said cutting my eye up at him.

He laughed grabbing my arm forcefully, “You scared? No need to play the damsel now, princess. You’re going be the one needing saving.”

He leaned forward grabbing my waist and licked his lips. I shuttered, but I grabbed my katana. Gripped in my hands tightly as I could. Then with one swift movement, I turned over and slashed across the face. His screams were blood-curdling. Blood pour from his face.
I watched him thrash about as the room suddenly began to fill up with smoke billowing from the trap door. I looked over at David. He was wide awake now and focused on the smoke.

“Something’s on fire I think. Hurry. Uncuff me,” he pleaded.

I pulled the key out my pocket and I unlocked his handcuffs giving him a grateful smile. He seemed hurried. Almost scared. He leaped up immediately pushing me out the way and grabbed the thieves’ bag of food. He took one look at me shaking his head and practically flew up the ladder leaving me.
“Wait!” I screamed, but it was no use. He was gone.

I looked over at the bloody scene I left behind. The boy was still alive curled up on the floor sobbing. From the looks of it, I had blinded him. The zombie crawled over to him and was only inches away from biting him when he sensed me nearby. He rushed forward grabbing me by the leg.
“Please kill me. Kill me, please. I…I’m sorry. Don’t let me die this way. Don’t leave me this way. Please,” he cried.

Decision: Kill him or leave him with the zombie/walker?

Dead On Arrival: Chapter 11- Honor Among Thieves

Chapter 11: Honor Among Thieves
I didn’t sleep much the night Mark and David showed up. You would think I would be comfortable in the presence of two people I’ve survived with for months, but I found myself even more on edge now they were here. Had I made a mistake? No. Having them here on our side was a safer option than turning them away and turning them against us. Still, I couldn’t help but feel unease. Especially for Audrey’s sake. I still don’t know how I had convinced her.

“Drop it! Drop it now or die!” I heard a shrilled voice echoed throughout the room.

“Girl, point that at me again and you’re going regret it!”

1st place finally!!!!!

Going update while I still can. Why it's still alive...

I thought my computer had died Saturday because I was getting a windows 10 blue screen telling me Unmountable Boot_Volume Error and it wouldn't do anything. Wouldn't let me reboot or restart. The automatic fix screen just went to blackI was able to run a test on it. Got the following codes: 4400 011a, 00f00 133c, 0f00 065d.

Them codes look like gibberish to me, so I just went off of what google told me and I thought my hard drive might be dead. Well, it might be failing still, but it's not dead yet. It's either that or something else. I can't say, because the inside of the computer confuses me.

So today after crying about it and mourning the loss of my Dell desktop I turned it on. Got the same crap. Got mad. Turned if off. Ate some cereal and danced around the kitchen with my music in my ears. Came back to see if it would come on. It was on, but the monitor was cut off. I turned the monitor on and the screensaver thingy was on. I'm like um...ok? Hit enter and it's alive normal as can be. I was pretty much speechless. ZOMBIE COMPY! AHHHH!

Either I'm an idiot, the compy is possessed, or I just got lucky today and it's giving me a warning. Either way I'm taking this thing to Best Buy and get it checked out. Buy any pieces I need to save money. Then save up for a brand new Dell, because this thing is 7 years old.

In the meantime, I'm going use it till it kills over again. lol Updates coming. And don't worry I saved everything I could on the ubs drive.

Back to normalcy here sometime this week...

I'm honestly exhausted. The funeral was today, so lots of crying, hugging, sadness. I'm still in disbelief TBH. Kept waiting for her to show up at the door when we pulled up to her house. Then we got to the actual thing and I saw her body in the coffin. Omg... I just lost it. Full on loud crying. I really don't know how I can keep doing this. I hope I never see that funeral home or any funerals for an extremely long time. This my 3rd big funeral and I'm only 27 going on 28. I can't lose anymore people. No more please. *sigh*

Anyway, I really don't feel like sitting around moping for the rest of the week. I want to look forward and get back to the norm. I also plan on staying in, because Roxie has been heartbroken these past few days. She hates when I leave her and I've been out a lot lately for long periods of time. The poor thing seem really stressed out today when I came in. Going give her some extra loving to make up for the lost time. lol

So back to the normalcy...

I'll try to post more sim related stuff now that things should be getting back to normal. I have new compy post to post and I'm going to write for my story again. I may need to change one part considering it hits way to close to home for me. Let's just I had a main character see one of their love ones as a zombie. An specific type of family member. You can pretty much guess. It was a total coincidence. So considering the emotional cry fest I've been through there's no way I can keep that in. Well it will be written a different way at least.

I wish I could post some different stuff for a change, but I don't lurk the officials enough to post about it or gossip about it. I shall find other ways to entertain you hopefully.

Happy Simming all! :)

Rest In Peace Aunt (updated slightly)

Well I did this for my grandfather, so I guess I'll do the same for her. My great aunt passed away, April 4th. She was very sick with pneumonia and she may of had a stroke on top of that. She couldn't walk, talk, or even sit up. She went downhill very fast. Her heart even stopped at one point. Eventually doctors decided she should be put in hospice care, because she wasn't going get any better. So she got put into hospice and they unhooked her from everything. Then she passed away.

Dead On Arrival: Chapter 10

Chapter 10: Doctor’s Orders
I felt the warn water trickle down my face and down my back. My body relaxing under the heat of it. All the blood and dirt of these past few months had gone down the drain, but the memories. They remain. Would the world go back to the way it was before the dead rose? Maybe. A hot shower definitely made things feel normal, but I knew all too well this was a minor temporary pleasure. If Matthew was here he would probably scold me for getting too comfortable. I wish he was here. Where was he?

Dead On Arrival: Chapter 9

Chapter 9: Blood of an Innocent
I hesitated. I watched his eyes open slowly. I heard an awful low sound escape his lips. Before I could make a move I watched him bite into the arm of the fragile Sarah. Horror grace her pale freckled face. Gary, her fiance was no innocent man. Not anymore. He was a mindless creature with a hunger for flesh. A walker.

Dead On Arrival: Chapter 8

Chapter 8: Found

“You’re right that did taste like shit.”

“You could at least lied,” she huffed pouting across the table after her so called breakfast. If you could call breakfast soggy cinnamon bread.

Despite that, things were going smoothly with me and Audrey. Two whole days had passed and I was getting stronger. My shoulder at least felt better. I was even getting some rest despite Audrey’s “night activities”, but my mind often drifted to David and Mark. Were they alive? Were they even looking for me? I would have to go find out I guess…sooner or later.

“You said you liked breakfast food the best, so I was just trying please you know. I’m not chef Boyardee”, she griped while staring in the mirror as she fixed her hair. “But what’s on your mind? You look…lost.”

“It’s just…. why do you go out every night?,” I found myself blurting out anxiously as I sat down on the bottom bunk. It was one of the many questions on my mind. A young girl like her going out at night in the zombie apocalypse alone with assholes lurking about seem like a pretty stupid idea.

She froze darting her eyes from me and to the mirror. “I do it to clear my head…..nothing more. I promise.”

“Well you must got a death wish with the walkers and Roy’s men looking for you.“

She said nothing looking down at the floor with a worried expression. I could tell there was more to her night outs, but I decided not to push it. We all had our secrets. If she knew I was an ex-con who broke out when all this shit went down she would have kick me out by now. I remained quiet as she continued brushing her hair.

“I’m going upstairs to check on the generator. It’s not too far from here. The lights flickered last night so I’m wondering if some zombs got thought the gate around it,” she finally said breaking the silence and relaxing again.

“Let me go with you. You might need backup.”

She grabbed a knife and her disgusting bloody jacket. “ No. I’ve done this before millions of times before you came. You’re starting to get better as well, so stay put and read some comics.”

Before I could even open my mouth to argue back she was gone. That damn girl was sure a fast one. I sat there staring at her stack of comics on the box near by till boredom made me pick up one. I read it for awhile studying the different panels and pictures. As the time passed I began to get worried and I got up preparing myself to climb up.

“Damn you Audrey. You couldn’t you get your damn uncle to put in some stairs?!” I thought to myself as I slowly made my way up with my busted shoulder.

“Audrey! I’m going kill you for this. You better be up here doing something worthwhile,” I muttered breathing heavily.

I open the shed door glad to be out in the fresh air again, but my relief turned into shock and dread when I saw Audrey with two men I knew all too well. David and Mark.
Mark had a knife to Audrey’s neck holding her tightly in almost a choke hold while David stood by with a handgun firmly in his grip. He saw me first squinting at the sight of me.

“Vince?” he said aiming his gun at me before slowly putting it down. 

Mark turned around to see me. He look genuinely stunned at first, but his face twisted in anger and Audrey gasped as if she was struggling to breathe. 

“Let her go. Please. She’s with me,” I said inching closer.

“No,” he laughed. “I don’t give a shit about who she’s with! Fuck man! We’re been looking for you about two days now and you’re here with some girl?!”

“It ain’t like that man. I was shot,” I said pointing to my shoulder. “She saved my life.”

“Well ain’t that some lovely shit. Ain’t that just fairytale type of shit?” he scoffed looking at David.
“Well you can have your little girlfriend back, but you still owe me Vince. I saved your life too remember.”

“Yeah. I’m one lucky SOB ani’t I?” I frowned.

“Well what you got in that shed? I saw you come out of there, so it must be something good.”

“Ain’t nothing. A corpse and some tools.” I said as they pushed pass me. I started to rush pass them to block their way, but David stop me pointing his gun at me.

“Sorry Vince,” he said looking gloomy.

Me and Audrey stood by as they checked out the shed. They discovered the body first making faces of disgust and then the door leading to the bunker full of food.One by one they climb down. You could literally hear them gasping from up above. When we reached the bottom they were practically drooling looking at the food. They didn’t even notice we had joined them as they began opening cans and gobbling down their contents.

“Vince, my friend. You hit a goldmine. No wonder you’re shacked up here,” Mark mumbled with jaws full of fruit.

Audrey just look at them in disgust and then she turn to me whispering, “So this is David and Mark huh? I know you know these guys, but do you trust them, Vince? They look kind of shady to me. I’m not sure if I want these guys around. They almost killed me up there. I know they’re desperate. I know they’re just trying to survive, but if you hadn’t came I…..I don’t even want to think about it.”
She then rub her neck and stared into my eyes with the most serious expression, “Just know you’re the only one saving them from being sliced to shreds right now. I have no problem taking out these bastards!”

Decision: Convince Audrey to let them stay or have them kicked out?

Dead On Arrival: Chapter 7

Chapter 7: Those We Seek
I smelled the scent of food as I made my way down the ladder to my safe haven. The smell was both intoxicating and alarming. The cans were all sealed up tight and I hadn’t cooked anything. I barely knew how to cook to give off such a smell. Who the fuck was in my shelter?

I climbed down feeling anxious while my mind fought off thoughts of devouring whatever was making the mysterious scent. When I got to the bottom I saw the back of a man at my kitchen counter. I slide out my katana ready to slice open my intruder, but then he turned around with a plate in his hand.

“Woah girl it’s me. Vince. Put that thing away.” he exclaimed wide eyed raising his free hand.

I slide my sword back into its hostler. “What are you doing?”

“What it look like I’m doing chica? Cooking breakfast…or brunch depending on how you look at it I guess.”

“Are you fucking nuts? Wait…….is that my bacon?”

“Yeah girl. Bacon and eggs. Wait till you taste Vince’s specialty.”

“I was saving that! You idiot!,” I yelled feeling a rush of anger bubble up inside me.

“For what? To make frostbite bacon and rotten eggs? You gotta eat this stuff when it’s fresh,” he said as he grabbed a plate and silverware from the cupboard. He then slide half of the pan’s contents onto a plate.

“Bon appetit! Dig in!”

I hesitated inching over to it. I sat down and began to exam it with a fork. It looked normal enough. My mouth watered as I slowly brought it up to my mouth. I touched it to my tongue feeling the searing heat. I blew it and stuffed it in my mouth instantly. The taste brought feelings of nostalgia and euphoria. Before long I was stuffing it in hungrily barely able to contain myself. I hadn’t even notice Vince had sat down across from me with his own plate.

“Um…thank you,” I mumbled with a mouth full of eggs.

He looked up looking as if he was lost in thought. “You’re welcome. Try not to inhale it though.”

“I’m not…” I sighed almost choking. “I thought you left. Why are you here?”

“I decided to stick around. You look like you needed company and I ain’t in no shape.”

“Well you were lucky. The bullet went right through, so you’ll heal just fine,” I said as I finished my plate.

Vince was not too far behind as he hungrily shoveled food into his mouth. He paused swallowing and continued, “I’ll be fucking clueless patching up a stranger’s bullet wound. How do you know this stuff?”

“Well my dad’s use to be a doctor till he went into the science field. Then I remembered stuff like movies and video games. So yeah I winged it.”

Vince laughed shaking his head. He then furrowed his brows shifting in his seat. “So that man upstairs is your…?”

“My uncle,” I quickly said feeling uncomfortable about the subject. “I plan on burying him soon, but not yet. I… think that my dad is alive somewhere though.”
He nodded forcing a small smile on his face. “Of course. I feel the same way about my daughter and her mom.“

“You have a child?!”

“Yeah. Maya. She’s five,” he said showing me the back of his cross necklace with the name ‘Maya’ etched on it. “This was a gift from her and her mom, Alesha. Me and her mom are together, but it’s complicated.”

He continued, “But something been bothering me though. Where the fuck you find eggs?”

I snicked “My…we have a coop out back. The zombz ate the hen a few days ago. Why I was keeping it for a special occasion. The bacon specifically.”


“Well this is a special occasion I guess,” I smiled feeling at ease now. While Vince suddenly grew tense as his focus shifted to the corner of the room.

“Well how about that sword? Slashing any faces lately?”

“What do you mean?” I glared at him suspiciously.

“The men who did this,” he pointing at his shoulder and face. “They were looking for a girl with a sword. Someone had slashed into the face of the leader’s son. You know anything about that?”

“Maybe,” I said as memories of that night flashed in my head. I had successfully evaded him after confronting him, but now he was looking for me? Looking for revenge?

“Earth to Audrey. You alright? I’m not going snitch,” he continued as my mind wandered. “Don’t worry. We’re figure something out. Maybe you need a change of scenery.”

“A change? A change of scenery?” I found myself repeating. I regained my composure, “What about your men? The guys you were traveling with? Maybe we should look for them first.”

Vince shook his head sighing, “David probably dead and Mark probably hightailed it out of here by now. I don’t know. Maybe. I’m pretty happy here for the time being.”

“Yeah I bet. Food,” I smirked.

“Is that all you think I care about? I’m insulted,” he laughed rubbing his stomach. “That food was pretty good though.”

Time flew by leaving nothing, but the night above us. Vince went to sleep after some time. The guy was nice, but he sure could talk a lot. I slipped out without him noticing to my relief. Out into another night full of sounds of the forest and sounds of the dead.
My time here seem to be dwindling. My walks. My little sessions of clearing my head and clearing the walkers would be coming to an end. I had only borrowed time to find the walker I truly seek. Vince wouldn’t understand. No one would. I would have to find her soon. Maybe tonight.

No poll till Sunday’s new chapter! In the meantime, feel free to express your thoughts and give me any constructive criticism. :)
