"It's no problem, the helicopter
is about five miles away. If some of us
were able to run past the zombies, we could
fly that bad boy out of here and somewhere
safe, like an island."
"Yeah, but the problem is." Rick never
got to finish his sentence. The CB radio came
to life, screaming curses into the air. Rick
frowned and joined everybody at the antique.
the...party...." Katie groaned. "Oh hell." Rick
nodded. "It's the hackers again and I'll be
dollars to peso's that they were the ones that
stole our gas."
"...We wanna ...see that wonder..ful
wannabe leader." the CB intoned. "his daughter..
was just so eatable when the zombies were done."
Rick was stone faced, but his skin tone belied his
emotions. He was not too happy.
"If you won't come out cause we ask...
then look out the window." Khayman pulled back
the blind and turned his head. A Ford four by
four was sitting at the fence, with men holding
off zombies, while a person was struggling on
top of the truck, tied down like a deer. The
leader pulled out a megaphone. "Hey, heroboy!"

put an arm on his shoulder. "No..Don't do it."
Rick turned and snarled at Joe. "If you had a
daughter you'd do it too!" He shook Joe. "Well?
Would you?" Joe lowered his head and
nodded. "Yes." Rick began putting on the suit
that Rovang had made for the five alters, snapping
the helmet shut with a click.
The suited Rick yanked down a board and
ran outside. The others boarded the door back up
and sighed. Amanda sighed. "Good luck, Rick."
Rick looked around. The woods were quiet
along with the yards but he stil felt eyes on him.
The pickup's lights flashed on, blinding him. A
man began walking slowly and calmly to him, smiling
a wide grin.
"Guys, see what I see?" Rovang was almost
jumping up and down. "They're cutting the fence.
If that happens, there's gonna be a million of those
things around." Khayman started tossing weapons to
the others. "Then let's take them out." They began
running out the doors, but Katie stopped Khayman.
She kissed him, passionatly, and smiled. "For luck."
They ran out to meet their fate.
