Zombie War

"Come out, who ever you are." Rick was instantly jumped by the man, taking punches to the face. He flipped his attacker off of him, and started kicking him. "You want some of me? You got it!" Katie turned her head, looking at the horrid sight. Rick and the man were fighting, with his daughter shadowed in the background. Pushing the thought from her head, she resumed shooting at the zombies. Rick had picked up a bat and began hammering at the man, but the hacker was too strong, and quickly disarmed him. With a mighty swing, he nailed Rick in the groin, doubling the costumed alt regular over. He hopped on top of Rick, choking him out with the bat.

She had grabbed Rick's arm and was about to take a bite of him when Teri went down. He looked around to see the shooter. Donna was in a sharpshooter's stance, gun still at ready. "Let's go!"
