David’s nerves hummed with adrenaline. His thoughts were focused on only one person: Tricia.
Did she escape? Is she hiding out somewhere safe? Does she have anything to protect herself with?
A loud groan came from behind David. He turned around, seeing a body on the ground where Frank had crouched. David’s eyes widened with shock as it crawled towards him.
“Ohgod Frank.” he whispered, scrambling back to avoid snapping teeth. David kicked out and caught his friend in the jaw. Teeth dribbled out of Frank’s bloody mouth from the impact. An inhuman snarl of hunger sounded as the man reached for David again, fingers scrabbling against the concrete.
“Nonononono-” David grunted, kicking at his friend. He finally caught a hold of Frank’s hair and yanked it back, hearing the neck snap. The struggling finally stopped, and David heard a thud as the body hit the floor. Tears welled up in his eyes at the thought of his daughter turning into one of.. them.
This couldn’t be real.
Nothing was real anymore.
