Zoey hissed in pain as one of the infected came close, there thin but sharp nails catching on the fabric of her hoodie. She grunted as she raised her gun slaming into the infecteds head, dazing it long enough to ram her gun in between its eyes.
"Keep on your toes", Bill, The old war veteren, Grunted in an annoyed look," Cut her some slack old man", Francis , The cocky biker, growled glaring at bill in a sinister stare," You both need to stop bickering were almost to the safe house Louis, The 'workaholic', said in a stern voice. They wern't the perfect group but they were family now and she would be damned before she let one of them get hurt. An apocolypse will do that to people turn the most unlikely people in to bitter sweet allies. In order to survive out here you needed to trust strangers.
Zoey smiled at them," Heh, sorry about that... I let my mind wander", she muttered to hush there bickering.
The cry of infected rang through the air, followed by many more, ceasing the bickering between the two men as a group of people, splattered in blood, screeching bloody murder as they ran at the survivors full speed stumbling apon each other to reach them.
The survivors raised there guns on instinct, facing the horde with there fingers. As the horde neared the small group the first bullet was shot splattering guts on the near by infected, who were not phased. Bill quickly began to empty his Ak-47 into the growing horde, followed by louis with his assault rifle covering the left flank Francis brought up the rear with his pump shot gun. I was in the middle gaurding the roofs from incoming speicals with my sniper," Smoker", louis cried as a long apendage ensnared his leg pulling him back in to the awaiting horde of fists.
Zoey quickly trained her eye through the scope following the tounge to a smoke incased figure," There you are",
she hissed pulling the trigger, sending a bullet into the figures head. The smoker took a sharp in take of breath as it fell to the ground in a puff of smoke," Thanks Zoe", Louis called back, beating back the infected that crowded around him with the back of his gun.
" Don't mention it ", she called back drawing her pistol to quickly shoot at the infected that began to pass there line of defence," These damn vampires won't stop coming", hissed francis as he batted away the infected. Bill stepped back next to zoey," Cover me I have to reload", Bill hissed, digging through his pockets. Zoey obeyed stepping up and began to unload her ammo into the crowding horde. Louis dug threw his pockets in a hurry," I Found a Pipe Bomb", he anounced, drawing back his arm throwing the small object a few yards away drawing half of the horde away.
Zoey sighed in relief filing her, Only to be crushed as a tell tale screech rang through the air. Her eyes widened as she frantically turned from side to side clutching her gun one word racing through her mind.
The hunter jumped from building to building in attempt to find some sort of subsinance. It had been weeks since his last meal, and being infected he was a picky eater, His favorite food was the kind that kicked and screamed. He grinned in a sadistic Mannor, licking his lips. He could almost feel the warm flesh under his claws and the blood smearing his claws, with the terrified screams of his viticms. It made him chuckle in a way that even made himself surprised.
He took a long breath of air, and strained his hearing. Through the scent of death and body fluids he could smell the distinct smell of fear, and Through the Crys of other infected and deathly gurgles he could detect the sound of rapid gun fire. He grinned and turned on heel, jumping rapidly to his destination, knocking some infected off the roof as he landed and took off once more.
As he neared his destination he could barely make out the tall shape of his other 'special brother' whos form was crowded with smoke and distinct coughing. He landed on a couple roofs over to the long tounge one examining the group of four. His eyes quickly darting over the group searching for a possible weak link.
His eyes drifted over to the man covered in markings,' He seems to trigger happy', he thought to himself, his eyes drifting over to the old man,' He may be the oldest but he does seem to be the most strongest', he growled silently His eyes darted over to the dark skinned man who cried out as the long tounged one ensnared his leg in a bone crushing grip and began to tug him back words. He considered stealing the infecteds kill when a bullet tore through the air landing between the eyes of the long tounged one, who fell in a plume of smoke.
The hunter jerked his head to the middle of the group where a young girl stood. She had long dark brown hair tied back in a ponytail,
she wore a fitting red sweater, with tight jeans and what really caught his attention was her deep eyes, Full of fear yet clouded with determination. He could almost feel his heart skip a beat. He stopped in Mid thought,' What am I thinking' he growled to himself,' She is prey and nothing more', He scolded himself, shaking his head a few times and closing his eyes.
He growled to himself as the image of her was imprinted in his mind. He screeched in anger, to late to catch his mistake as he relized he alerted the group. He leaned over the edge again to watch the female turn her head from side to side frantically in blind panic, He smiled,' Shes cute when shes scared', he thought quickly smacking his head, growling at himself.
He Turned back to the Female only to see that her gun was trained on him and her eyes were looking in the scope," Shit!", he yelped as he jumped back a bullet whizzing through the air were his head was," Dammit I let my gaurd down", he hissed.
He sat there in silence waiting untill-" Nice shot!", he heard one of them shout. He grinned,' So they think im dead, eh?', He thought Leaning over the edge,' What a deadly mistake', he growled, Fading into the Shadows.
Zoey jolted and turned her head back, scanning the roof were the hunter had been previously," I could have sworn", she muttered to herself ," Come on zoey, theres a safe house ahead",Louis called, she looked back and nodded slowly turning around and joging back to her teammates.
She sighed in relief as a wooden plank that was nailed onto a wall had a crude drawing of a little red house with a pluse sign and an arrow pointing to there right were a big red steel sat in all its glory
" Safe house, come on lets hurry before we run into unwanted guests",bill grunted, the team nodded in agreement as they swiftly joged the rest of the way holding there guns steady. They walked into a small room with metal shelves hanging above a small sink. In the middle of the room there was a metal table and off to the side were stacks of boxes with supplys. Im the right hand corner was a wooden door with a few scratches and indents," Im going to go cheak it out", bill grunted," Seal the door.", Louis lifted up the metal bar and slipped it into the hold. Bill opened the door and stepped inside as the rest of the group began to explore. Francis raided the cabnits and grinned," Alright Booze", he chanted, grabbing a bottle of vodka.
Zoey snorted and began to dig in the crates pulling out a can of powdered milk and canned fruit," This should do nicely", she murmured to herself.
Bill walked out of the room, a pleased expresion," Were in luck, I found a soft pad and a couple of sleeping bags, not to mention a small shower room.
I tested out the water, its luke warm so we can use it for now", Zoey smiled," Finaly, I have been dying for a shower, I call first", she chanted, beating louis by a few seconds.
She grinned smugly as louis scowled and glared at her. She walked into the other room and Into the heavenly bathroom," Heaven at last", she murmured and began to strip her of her clothing. She began to shiver slightly as air wafted through a window off to the side. The glass was broken but there were bars gaurding it from unwanted intruders. Still She could not help but have the feeling of eyes boring into her back.
