Z is for Zombie

Avatar Author: James P Anderson "If you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you" Read Bio

I held my shotgun up to the mouth of the charred zombie creature and pulled the trigger. Zombie brains spattered onto the cement wall behind it spelling out “Brains” with the blood and pieces of its head. My last shell hit the ground

I turned around to find 3 more zombies approaching me, dragging their legs, and moaning in horror. Swinging the shotgun, I lopped off the first zombie head. It hit the ground with a “Mush.” The other two zombies were right behind me. I flung a roundhouse kick right through the stomach of the one on the left.

“(After a Chuck Norris style kick such as this, you would think I would be able to finish the last one off……but my foot was stuck in the torso of the zombie.)”

The third zombie tackled me to the ground. He smelled like rotting garbage. His teeth sank into my neck as the other bit into my hip. My eyes, bloodshot, darted back and forth as the colors of the world faded, and I was eaten alive.

    That was just horrid. I was really hopeful he was going to make it. One of the most gruesome silences I’ve read for this challenge.
    Though I loved the Chuck Norris reference, I wasn’t quite sure how you meant the quotes in the bit about Chuck Norris. He’s talking out loud to himself? Or you didn’t mean to have quotes there.

    Wow, totally not what I was thinking for this challenge. Really unique. It reads to me like a videogame or it’s sheer luck that the brains spelled “BRAINS”.

    @THX- Yea i was trying to make sort of a side note narration within the story, i tried to italisize it but could not figure out how haha, but after looking at it, your right i might not even need quotes. If you have any suggestions on how i could do that better that would be sweet.
    @ PJ- Thanks! haha

    @ first I was thinking “Zombieland” (no offense) And then I read the last sentence. I thought it was humorous but thats just me.
