Chapter One

The Prologue

It seemed to sneak its way into our wold without much commotion, a new story of odd illness in other countries that we simple didn't care about and flipped the channel on. No one could tell you with complete honesty and proof what caused it or where it came from. No one new whether it was an infection or a disease. If it was natural, biological weaponry, radiation, or bacterial we didn't know. Nations and citizens pointed fingers and shouted accusations of who let it happen, who started this apocalyptic plague named the ZN1 virus.

Truth was, no one country had.

We blinked and suddenly it was here.

The first real television interruption came on a Monday: India had over a thousand cases and Sweden had over ninety.

The next week, Scotland had seventy cases, Morocco was estimated over a hundred, and India and Sweden were growing too fast to accurately count.

By week seven, South Africa and Israel were being flagged as mass casualty hot zones with immediate quarantine and India and China were categorized as 'Dark Zones' before sunset. Once a country, city, or region was classified as such, no help would come for those inside, and no creature would be allowed to come out alive. The human race had declared a third of it's population dead.

The end of the second month brought with it the international travel band. Every nation, big small, island, or landlocked had put up mass boarder control.

North and South America were infected by month nine despite all efforts to contain it.

Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Bhutan, and Moldova...

Every few days, news reports listing small countries found only in the crevices of the world map's boarders where brought to center stage as their populations were overrun and declared 'Dark' in days.

The human race watched in horror as ten cases became ten thousand. Ten thousand became one million. And one million became entire nations.

And two years after the infected entered the United States, the one percent took on a new meaning in America...
