You pulled the door open with a click. Ethan reached out to grab your arm, but you glared at him to stop him. He put his hands up in mock surrender. The man on the road nodded to you in gratitude. As you turned to wave Ethan and Amber out, something tight gripped your neck. That was punctuated by glass smashing, and you saw a man and woman tussling with Amber and Ethan. For about a half of a minute, you were stuck in that postion.
A cold hand gripped your heart, unlike the hot one around your neck. This guy is dead. You thought, and fumbled for your knife. The man yanked your knife away from you. Without thinking, you bit into his hand. The grip he had on you fell away, and you gasped. A choking, bubbling sound came from behind you. The man was foaming at the mouth, but stopped once you stabbed him. Troy had gotten out of his car and shot the people attacking the jeep dead.
"Why did that man start turning when you bit him?" Amber asked quietly. "I don't... know, I mean, people are already getting to this? It hasn't been a day since the outbreak." You stammered, still bandaging the cuts on Lex's face. You were two miles out from Troy's cabin, and the town had become a wooded area. As you drove along, you saw a barbed wire fence a few yards ahead of Troy's pickup, which had taken the lead. Two cabins were visible, as well as other outdoor amenities.
A lady in a peach dress walked up to Troy's car, and spoke a few words to him. She then walked over to your car. "Drive in, and meet Troy in the cabin by the firepit. You'll choose who you bunk with there." She ordered, and her black heels clacked against the gravel road.
You stood with your hands against the wooden coffee table. The kitchen connected to the living room, and a ladder lead up to the loft. There were two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The loft was taken by a single mom and her sassy daughter Avery. The little girl had already taken a liking to the dogs, and had begged Troy to build doghouses. "Alright. Who bunks with who?" Ethan asked, breaking you away from your thoughts.
