Rick, Khayman, Donna, Katie and Rovang ran
towards the hideout as fast as they could. "We're
almost there!" Rick screamed. He fumbled with the
keys to the door. Katie was tripping out. "Cmon,
cmon, get the friggin door, they're coming!"
"Don't get your panties in a wad." Rick
finally got the key and inserted into the lock.
It opened with a clunk and they ran into the
main hallway of the hideout. Katie stifled a
scream. "Oh my God." Khayman's eyes widened. The
hideout had been overrun too. Mangled bodies stood,
and turned to them an looked. "Suzi, no." She was
amongst the walking dead. Snarling, she lead the
others in a slow chase after the five alt members.
"Let's go..I think i know where a boat is."
They began the mad dash towards freedom, while the
zombies continued on their way. They got outside into
the open, bright sunlight burning everyone's eyes.
They got to the dock with seconds to spare. Katie was
the first into the boat, dashing up to the control
room. She flung open the door as hands reached out to
grab her. She screamed as she was pulled inside and
the door slamming shut.
Nightmares Into Dreams
Katie sat up with a squeak. Disoriented, she
looked around to find herself in a medical center.
Michelle Meyers and Kristen were hard at work wrapping
up other paitents, while Rick and Khayman sat at a
table with cups of coffee.
"What happened?" Katie asked drowsily. Khayman
knelt in front of her and held her hands. "You got
a little freaked when we opened the door. You passed
right out and have been out for hours."
"Isn't everyone history?" she asked silently.
"Nope. Only the ones caught in the hallways. Every
one of the alters that made it to the shelter is
fine and dandy."
Kristen walked up. "I just got word on the radio
that the national guard has really contained the
situation. We're about a month away from bad chats ,
channel takeovers, and outdoor barbeques."
Rick laughed. "That's a relief." and everyone
joined in a celebration that had started up. He
quickly joined DrMM, Donna, Khayman, Katie, and
the others in finally taking a breather from the hell
that had enveloped alt the past few months and years,
knowing everything was still safe and well.
