A/N: Sorry I haven't updated in a while. School has been hectic. Please review! Tell me if it's good or if it isn't. Any kind of review would help. By the way, I called this chapter "Blue Heaven on Earth" because that is one of Dodger Stadium's nicknames. I'm not a Dodgers fan though in case you were wondering.
Disclaimer- - I don't own Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, the Los Angeles Dodgers, or anything else mentioned. *This is in no way insulting or mocking the Los Angeles Dodgers. I know the Dodgers are having ownership problems right now and I am in no way making fun of them. I respect the Dodgers as an organization and as a team. I do not own the Los Angeles Dodgers or Dodger Stadium.*

*WARNING* - Please take into consideration what it means when zombies are involved. People get eaten, and characters get a bit depressed. Nothing too gory or anything because I don't even want to read a story like that. This story is staying T rated.
Loomer came back with another Nerf gun and saw Moze.
"I brought another one."
Moze didn't acknowledge him. She just kept her eyes on the Nerf gun she was holding with a smirk plastered on her face.
"I think I got the hang of it." she rose the gun to eye level and shot two bullets into the last remaining cups almost flawlessly. Loomer's jaw dropped in astonishment.
Moze handed the toy to him and walked away feeling more sure of herself than ever.
Chapter 7: Blue Heaven on Earth
Later that day -
Ned checked every duffel bag to make sure they had everything they needed.
"Ok, we're missing the walkie talkies, Coconuthead." Ned said as he rummaged through the bag.
"Oh, right. I'll go get them." He then left to search for the items. Ned spotted Cookie and said,
"Hey Cookie, come here for a sec."
He reached into his back pocket and pulled out a map.
"I'm going to show you the route to take to the stadium since you're our driver." He unfolded it and put his finger on one of the lines.
"We're going to go on the 110 Freeway Southbound and then take the Dodger Stadium Exit. Then we enter the Downtown Gate and turn left to enter the Academy Gate. Sound good?"
"Yeah that's fine."
"And when we leave, we can take the 5 Freeway."
"Ok, that makes sense."
Ned folded up the map and said,
"Are we all ready?" as Coconuthead came back.
Everyone looked at one another and nodded.
"Ok, get your bags and meet at the same door we came in through."
Ned put his duffel bag over his shoulder and picked up the shotgun and bat.
"I don't think going to Dodger Stadium is a good idea." Loomer told him as he passed. Ned just stared at the back of his leather jacket as he made his way with the others.
What does he know? I thought this through all night. The stadium is a safe place. He doesn't know what he's talking about. He brushed off his thoughts and walked to where the group was.
"Seth, can you lift the door up about two inches?" Ned asked.
"Um, okay." Seth bent down and pulled it up slightly. Ned got down on his stomach and looked through the opening.
"It looks clear." He said as he got up. "Open it up."
Seth lifted it all the way and shielded his eyes from the bright sun light.
"Let's get on the bus. Put your bags in the back."
Cookie looked left and right as he led the group to the bus that was only a few feet away. He slide the doors aside and let everyone in. Ned closed the doors as Cookie took the driver's seat.
"Here's the directions." Ned handed Cookie the map and took the seat behind him.
"Do you think the highway will be clear of cars?" Cookie asked as he exited the ally into the horde of walkers that were hungry for human flesh.
"Hopefully." That is all Ned could do, hope. He turned around and saw Moze sitting in a seat in the back with a blank expression on her face, although, if you looked into her eyes, you could see a war of emotion going on.
"I still don't think this is a good idea, Bigby." Loomer stated. Ned sighed and asked,
"And why is that, Loomer?"
"Because we are just going to be sitting ducks in that place! You think it's safe and will keep those things outside, but what if it traps us inside? Did you ever think of that?"
"We will make sure that we have ways to get out if we need to."
"How can you be sure? That place is huge! We shouldn't go there." Loomer retorted.
"Loomer is right. It's too dangerous. We should go somewhere else." Missy said.
"It will be perfectly fine guys! Believe me!"
"I don't want to go somewhere that's not safe." Suzie said.
"It will be safe! I'll make sure of that! What do you think Moze?" His ice blue eyes stared defiantly at her hoping that he would gain some support.
"I think…Loomer is right." She said slowly. Ned couldn't believe what he heard. Did she really just take his side?
"What? Are you serious? Why are defending him?" he exclaimed.
"What? I think it's a good idea! That's all!"
"Oh sure! You're just saying that because I dumped you!"
Her eyes widened.
"Not everything is about you!" she said.
"I know! That's why I'm trying to keep everyone alive!" he raised his voice.
"Well then get a better idea!"
"Look, that stadium is safer, wider, and built better for defense! It's a perfect place to be at night. Just trust me, ok?" He pleaded. Moze just turned back to the window and folded her arms.
All of a sudden, Ned's mind started screaming. How could he say something like that to her? I'm so stupid! He gripped the chair in front of him and thought,
I hope going to this place is the right decision…
A/N: WOO! Next chapter coming soon. Please review :)
