Introduction

This was how it started, in our wildest dream we never thought something like this would befall mankind, humans going extinct, because of one simple mistake.
It all started when somehow the entire bloods in the blood bank of the Marina Hospital became contaminated, without proper check, they donated it to patients who needed it, changing their body DNA, first they died, then their skin rapidly growing pale, their eyeballs completely lost in their socket, with peeling skins, then come back to life, with increased strength, speed, sense of smell, unending thirst for blood.

Marina Hospital, Akure, Ondo State Nigeria.
Ward 103
Three doctors walked into the ward, while an assistant nurse followed behind, the patient already cut open, and ready to be operated on, an doctor checked the patient's pulse and signalled to the nurse to set for blood transfusion.
"Alright, pass it"
***
***
The patient opened her eyes and exhaled deeply, her eyes already lost within its socket. She roughly removed all strings on her body and stood up from the bed, just then a nurse walked in.
With swiftness, the lady grabbed the nurse threw her on the bed and in an instance leaped on the nurse, who had no slight chance to strike back.
The patient instantly dipped her teeth into the nurse's neck and bite it off, which splattered blood all over.
Growling hard, the patient raised her head, smelling fresh blood approaching, quickly hid herself behind the door.

That's was how it started and seemed I'm the only one alive, the whole world is turned upside down, this things has spread so rapidly, faster than wild fire, no cure, no visible alternative, I have families out of the state, I hope there alive, the network is jammed, if you're hearing this, please be safe.

Chapter One
Rally Fire Arms

Tami peeped through the little hole on the window on the left wing of the room, five minutes ago, was heavy banging on the door and windows of the house, peeping through the window, he saw the devastated empty street laid in ruins, a former shadow of itself, burnt building, infected dogs, even her.
Mr James he used to know to be very nice, was now even more brutal since he had been infected.
"Lord" Tami said and held tight to the crowbar on his chair and looked through the hole, sighting his car outside, waiting for the perfect moment to dash out.

Emo as he had named them in his Yoruba dialect, closely translated to strange or abnormal, were active during both at night and day, never relenting.

Seeing the perfect moment, Tami hanged his bag around his back, with great force, he smashed the door opened and dashed for his car, he jumped over a crippled Emo, and unknowingly the car keys fell to the ground.
"Argh! " he screamed in frustration, noticing the key on the floor, but getting it was close to impossible, Emos were already coming for him, from every angle.
He smashed the crowbar on the glass frame of the car and opened the lock from inside, entering into the car, he pulled out some wires by the steering of the car and, used his teeth to cut some wires, joining it together, the car revived and Tami pulled the gear on reverse.
THUD!!
"Ohh, Mr Sammy, I'm sorry but you're long dead" Tami said and climbed on the Emo, drifting through the corner.
Tami drove for three hours, before he could get to the nearest military barrack, if he would continue this journey, to get to his wife and kids, and if there was a cure, he'd be needing that too, he would be needing all the military arms he could get, penetrating the barrack would be a great deal.

Stopping before the military gate, Tami increased the engine power and watched as Emo soldiers paraded the gate.
Stepping on the accelerator, Tami smashed through the gate, hitting every Emo on his path, he took the right turn, and turned to the left, rapid gunfire suddenly came at the car, which made Tami loose control, smashing against a barricade the car tumbled upside down.
"Do they also learn to shoot guns? " Tami asked himself and crawled out, luckily sustaining minor injuries and some bruise on his face. Leaning by the car, Tami saw three Emos walking towards the car, with heavy fire power, sure, they knew he wasn't dead.
Tami crawled and made his way into the tent before him.
A soft growl came behind him, already inside the tent, quickly he dived to the left, as the Emo behind him leaped towards him, without delay, the Emo dashed at him and grabbed him by the neck, raised him up into the air and smashed him on the table.
"Arggghhhh" Tami screamed in pain, sighting a pistol inches away, Tami used his leg to hit the Emo, creating space to grabbed the gun. Tami wasted no time in sending two shots into the Emo, one on the chest and another on the head.

Three more Emos ran into the tent, instantly Tami shot them dead, and took thier guns, An Ak47, Assault rifle and a revolver.
"Grenades " Tami said and peeped outside, walking in stealth, leaning on in tent to another, to avoid been detected.

Tami walked into the Arsenal, grabbing a bag on the table and unzipped it, he began offloading the things he needed.
"You hands where I can see them" A bold masculine voice said behind him, sending cold chill through his spine.
"Finally a real human" Tami said and slowly turned around with is hands in the air.
"Better" the man said and dropped his gun.
"You're lucky to be alive, I'm Mike" the man said and sighed relive.
"Tamilore, Tami for short, can I continue? "
"Sure, gather as much as you need" Mike replied and continued
"Crazy things going on, all my transmission hasn't gotten any reply, there's is hope we are not the only ones alive, at least I thought I was the only one and here you are "
Tami zipped the bag, contended with what he already gathered
"I have to get to my wife, there are in Lagos, went on vacation, I believe they are alive" Tami said and carried the bag.
"Be safe man, I'll remain here, I know this place better than these Walking Dead, I'm safe here, at least for the main time " Mike said and handed Tami a car key
"Right outside, a desert Runner" He said.
"Thanks" Tami said and ran out, threw the bag into the military jeep and jumped in, started the car and zoomed off.

Chapter Two
Running Dog

Driving through the highway, Tami wrapped a handkerchief around his face, and trailed his hair which he plaited into rows, he increased the speed and gulped hard, feeling thirsty.
He heard loud barking sound and dropped the gear by one, as the barking faded Tami pulled the hear forward and suddenly a dog ran into the highway. Tami stepped on brakes, which made the back tires burn the tarred road.
Tami grabbed the Assault rifle, and jumped down the jeep, walking cautiously, he cocked the gun, hearing weak whimpering sound.
Three huge dogs ran into the highway and halted seeing Tami, thier look could tell they were also infected, as their rib cage looked fatter than thier entire body, with long canines.
Tami walked forward and saw the tired dog, he was sure it ran for survival and was looking up to him.
"Stay calm " Tami said and aimed at the infected dogs, and shot the one in the middle.
The other dogs ran forward with great speed, jumping on Tami, who didn't waste time in using the butt of the gun to smash the dig in the ribs.
The second dog also jumped on Tami, pushing him down, it attempted a bite, quickly Tami, used the gun to guide the attack and punched the dog, reached to his feet and pulled out a pistol and shot at both dogs.
"Bloody animal" he said and stood up.
"Hey" he said and turned towards the Basenji breed dog, which was extremely exhausted
"You're a fighter" Tami said and carried the dog.

Tami pulled the car in front of a Mini Mart and carried the dog on his arm, used his leg to push the door and went in.

Re: Zs by Devilpen(m): 10:38pm On Mar 17
He held the pistol firmly, being at alert, since they were about three Emos, it would be foolish to attack first since they didn't bother attacking him or pass any form of threat on him.
He laid the dog on the counter and pulled the shopping basket to himself, gathering bottle waters into it, on the far end where were loads of canned food, but there were three infected humans there.
"I'll just have to take the risk " he said and took cautious steps followed by the whimpering of the dog.
"Shhhssshh, they seems to be nice"
As he moved forward, the Emos stepped aside, allowing him passage, taking what he needed, Tami moved to the next shelf and took more important things.
"Alright, let's go" He said and grabbed the dog.
"Check out" An Emo said and began approaching him.
"Check out " another Emo said and also began to approach him, this time they looked deadly.
"Who needs payment at a time like this? " Tami shouted and luckily the hard object a Km Emo threw at him, slightly missed his head, breaking the glass of the door.
Tami held the basket, put the dog into it and retrieved his pistol, seeing how fast they were approaching, Tami took to his heel, getting to the car, he threw the basket into the car, jumped in and ignited the engine.
"The dead are also asking for cash" Tami laughed as he zoomed off.

Chapter Three
Survivors

Tami tuned the radio in the car, from one station to another only to meet static noises.
"Finally" Tami said with joy as he heard a voice from the radio.
"If you're hearing this, you are already of the situation, there are bases at this points, City Hall go every states, Barracks, report has it that each Local and International Airport are saf......" the radio suddenly went static.
"Mary, I hope you're safe".

Zilla, the name Tami gave to the dog, barked loudly, drawing Tami's attention to it, driving in the lonely street, Tami could see few normal humans walking about.
"How come this place have low infection rate? " he asked himself as he entered into the city.
He pulled his car on a safe side, luckily they had power supply.
"Excuse me, please I need to power up my phone" He said to a lady who looked weary, and stained all over.
"Come in, we have to leave the city, scout reported Zs are closing in rapidly " the lady said and led the way into her home.

She offered Tami a cup of cold water and help him charge his phone, and also offered Zilla a bowl of water which it drank hastily.

On one percent, Tami powered on his phone and felt like it took forever to boot, he scrolled through the contact and dialed his wife's number.
He felt relived as the phone rang.
"Tami, we are a.......... " the phone suddenly disconnected
Tami felt relived hearing his wife's voice but the she was trying to pass an important message.
"Damn " he said as effort to get through were futile, the line was totally not reachable.
"Thank you" he thanked the lady and hurried out followed by Zilla.
Getting outside, Tami felt rage, seeing the jeep was gone, the guns, foods and water.
He screamed in annoyance, not even a pistol with him.
"We should get a car somewhere"
Tami walked up to pickup van and attempted opening the door when he heard a voice.
"Move away or I won't regret driving this pitch fork into you"
Tami sighed and turned around, moving aside, he suddenly jumped on the man, disarmed him and kicked him on the stomach, he quickly got into the van, while Zilla smartly hopped into the back of the van, and swiftly Tami drove out of the town.


It's getting late already, he said and turned on the headlights of the van, the van's engine slowly died down, Tami turned the ignition, then noticed the fuel was finished.
"No not this time, I'm in middle of nowhere"

Tami alighted and sat on the tarred road, feeling exhausted, he leaned on the body of the car.
Zilla whimpered, and had Kat's tails within its legs and leaned by Tami.
"I feel that too" Tami said and stood up, he opened the door of the van and grabbed a huge spanner from under the drivers seat.
"I'm surviving this" he said and ran down the empty vast highway.

A loud growl came from the right, looking at the direction, Tami saw two hefty Zs running at him.
"Run, Zilla, run" he shouted and dashed forward, running as his legs could carry him.
A Z suddenly jumped out from the side, quickly Tami spanked it's head with the spanner with him, and dodged the attack quickly, panting loudly, he saw a hotel about five minutes ahead.
He bent down and picked Zilla up, before him were two Zs who dashed at him also.
Getting closer, Tami threw the spanner with him, at the Z on the right, and kicked the other on the stomach, quickly he dashed into the building of the hotel, seeing more Zs, he made his way into the hotel, getting to the reception desk, a Z suddenly grabbed Tami by the waist, and pulled him down, attempting to bite Tami's neck, Tami slapped it on the face and bite it's neck, and gathered strength to snapped it's neck.
"Zilla" he shouted and ran into a room and locked the door behind, suddenly the hotel generator went off.
"Welcome to my country" Tami said and heard a soft growl in the room.
Re: Zs by Devilpen(m): 7:34am On Mar 18
Tami felt a hard bite on his left arm, following instinct he kicked the Z, and quickly made for the door, within the span of seconds he began to feel fever running through him, his temperature was beginning to rise, he quickly shot the door against the Z and crawled on the floor in pains.
"No, I'd rather die, than become one of these" Tami said.
The light in the hotel came on, Tami looked at his arm that was bitten and saw it already went pale, and speedily it was moving through his body, with his veins becoming blue.

He made his way to the hotel kitchen, with Zilla following behind, he tore a piece of cloth and tied it around his arm, above the infected area and grabbed a huge kitchen knife from the shelf.
"God, please make this work" Tami said and began breathing heavily, sweat breaking out involuntary from his face, the infection was speedily catching up with him.

He dipped pieces of cloth into his mouth, to prevent his scream from letting out and with one swing, Tami chopped off his left arm, from the elbow downward.

He let out a loud muffling cry, as blood oozed out from his hand, the pan which he had left of fire, he grabbed it by the handle and burnt his amputated arm to fry the surface, so as to stop the blood flow.
"Agh Agh, hmm" Tami panted as he fell exhausted to the ground, feeling weak in every part of his body, his prayers were to survive andat the state he was, not to be found by any Z.

Zilla whimpered as a soft growl came from the exit door of the kitchen, as slowly became louder.
"No" Tami said and went unconscious

Chapter Four
Survivors 2

Tami slowly opened his eyes, welcomed by the fresh sweet aroma of locally made tea, he turned his head to left, and saw movement of people around him, chattering of children, laughter from every corner, even Zilla was quite excited as it wagged it's tail, turning round a child
"Argh! " Tami groaned as he stood up.
"Your dog, it's a true fighter, what's his name? " a cool feminine voice said from the end of the room
Tami turned towards the voice and smiled on seeing the familiar face
"Maggi" he said in excitement.
Maggi before the apocalypse was a very successful cloth dealer, and also you wife's younger sister.
"Why are you alone, my sister" Maggi said, her countenance instantly changing.
"Alive, they went to Lagos for her friends party and also decided to spend some time with my mother" Tami said and let out a wince.
"I'm relieved to hear that, so you're going for them? "
"Yeah" Tami replied and looked around.
"You lost an arm"
"Not completely, this could still deal some damage"
Maggi stood up from the chair and walked towards the door.
"Here, the infection rate is high, hearing of the case from other part of the country, I immediately led a team of able bodied, securing our future, I persuaded a corrupt friend of mine in the government to change papers, you know what that means, purchased the entire 30,000 acres of land here in Ibadan, so literally it's a humble town with enough security " Maggi said, with a bossy voice.
"You are playing politicsin here" Tami replied
"In every situation we must survive"

Tami followed Maggi outside, surprised by the effort Maggi had put into it, transformed it into a haven, far from the main city
"Zilla" Tami shouted at the dog, who immediately ran to him.
"Maggi, we have to leave as soon as possible, so I can bring them back, I'll be needing little resources, food, ammunition, water and the likes" Tami said calmly.


Tami three the last of the bottled water into the truck, and tucked a revolver into his trouser.
"I picked two men, to see you off the borders and make sure you're safe until you leave Ibadan" Maggi said and tapped the body of the truck.
"Thanks, I'll contact you" Tami said and climbed at the back of the truck, strapped the machine gun above the truck tightly and tapped the truck and immediately the truck zoomed off.

Getting to the borders, the driver killed the truck engine and came down, followed by the other, then Tami jumped down from the back.
"Thanks brothers " Tami said and stretched his hand to receive the car key.
"Not so soon" the heavily bearded man said and looked at Tami's missing arm.

"Maggi, needs to be thought a lesson, you see, she might have proved smart, but yet, now, everywhere is no man's land" The man said and whistled.
"Chill, what's wrong? " Tami asked, trying to buy himself time and figure out his next move

"She hijacked my brother's plan and left him to get infected, I've thought of ways to hurt her, then here you are"

The second man, came out from an abandoned building, dropping a Z behind him, bound in chains.
"It'll hurt her to see you that way" The man said and smiled wickedly.
Swiftly, Tami kicked him on the groin and pinned him by the neck, retrieved his gun and placed it on the man's head.
"I won't think twice, leave that Z and turn around" Tami shouted, and pressed down the clip of the revolver, with his thumb.

"I'm warning you" Tami shouted, and pressed the barrel on the man's chin.

Slowly the man let the Z alone and stepped aside, from behind Tami, a Z walked slowly, trying not to make its target aware, seeing the the man moved aside, and spoke
"We are only pained, nothing else, leave him and we promise to be on our way"
Zilla jumped down from the truck and ran at the Z behind Tami ramming itself into the Z, Tami loosed concentration, looked back and quickly the heavily bearded man, loosed himself from Tami's grip and pushed him at the Z.
Tami rolled away from the Z, slightly dodging the slash the Z sent at him.
Both men, immediately took to their heels, right into the abandoned building.
The Z grabbed Zilla and was about ripping it off, when a bullet pierced it's head.
"Leave me dog, Zilla, get over here" Tami looked at the building and walked at it.
"I need that key" he said and grabbed an assualt rifle and tucked two cartridges into his pocket.
"Zilla, wait here" he said and ran towards the building.

Chapter Five
The Gold Z

Tami pushed the almost the door with his leg, walking steady and slowly, stepping on fired leaves on the floor, he heard a soft growl and quickly turned around, suddenly the door shut itself letting out a loud sound, he tried keeping his cool, even being at the disadvantage of loosing a hand. He held the gun up and supported it beneath with the remains of his left arm.

The windows of the building also came shut, creating total darkness.
Tami felt a cold hand around his neck, and immediately pulled the trigger of the gun, shooting at random places.
He felt his leg his someone, he shot at a direction he though a window should be. The window came apart, shredded into pieces, allowing illumination into the building.

Tami saw both men laying lifeless on the ground and quickly searched them for the car key, while he dropped the rifle in the ground.

"You, brought this upon us! " a boy's voice said from a dark corner.
Tami was startled and stood up
"The way I see it, we brought this upon ourselves,nobody knows the cure" Tami replied and approached the corner, hanging the gun on his body.

"Come out, don't be scared "
"Are you sure?"
"I won't hurt you"

A little boy dressed in red round neck shirt and a tree quarter, having a pair of sneakers on his legs came out, revealing his golden color skin.
"You look different" Tami said, rigged to his position.
"I'm immune, the first bite turned my skin this way" The bit said and took a step backward.
"I'm amazed, maybe we have hope, come, be my tracks companion "

Entering into Lagos, Tami looked ahead, seeing there was no way the journey could continue with car, either a motorcycle of they did the rest with their legs, everywhere was disorganized and locked down.
"We have to continue on foot" Tami said and picked up the bag in the bag, and threw a bottled water at the boy

"How old are you? "
"Thirteen, I'm Bisi "
***
***
Tami shielded his face from the scorching sun sigh his right hand, seeing a motorcycle ahead, he stopped for once, wondering how it would be convenient for him to handle it with an arm missing.
Bisi assisted him in pulling the motorcycle up, Tami groaned in pain and hit down the stater while Bisi rotated the left handle.
"Come-on" Tami said as he attempted the third time.
A white van screeched slowly on the floor, which got Tami's and BISI's attention, with Zilla standing alert
"What's that? " Bisi asked in fear and looked at Tami who also was dead scared.
"Come-on let's start this and get the hell out"
He hit down the starter, the motorcycle let an engine revive sound and died down again.
"Check for fuel" Bisi suggested.

The car moved again, this time another car also moved.
"There's enough " Tami said in low tone.
Zilla let out a bark and took a step forward, it suddenly dashed at the moving van, slide beneath it, and dashed out back at Tami.

The van flew with force into mid air and somersaulted over Tami's head. Before them was a very huge Z, well built with red burning eyes.

"Good, Lagos has another version of Emo" Tami said and kicked the starter again while Bisi rotated the handle.
Another Z surfaced behind the first, also huge in size, they growled as they moved forward.
"We have to leave this and run" Bisi shouted.
Tami fired the gun at the Zs, seeing it inflicted just little pain in them, he grabbed the bag and ran after Bisi while Zilla also followed behind.

The shadows of a falling car, covered them, stopping abruptly, the car crashed before them, quickly Bisi jumped over and continued running.
"This kid is somehow enhnaced" Tami said, seeing how Bisi ran and leaped over cars.

A Z suddenly showed up before Bisi, who didn't think twice before using his knee to smack the fave of the Z, shattering it completely into pieces.

More Zs began to show, totally rounding the up. Tami unzipped the bag and brought out two pistols.
"Do you know how to her these? "
"No, only in movies I've seen them" Bisi replied.

"Good, now take"
Tami fired round, bringing the Zs down, while Bisi also tried shooting, somehow the force tore his right palm
"I can't use it"
"Law low" Tami shouted, only to see the more he killed them, the more they increased, and we're quickly closing down on him.
"This is where we die, I'll rather end my life, than become one" Tami said and placed the gun on his head, closed his eyes and pulled the trigger.

Chapter 6
Backstabber


Tami closed his eyes, hoping his brains too burst out from the skull, luckily he was out of ammo, from behind, he saw each Z went down, a group of rugged looking people had come to their rescue, Tami suddenly found strength, he smacked the butt of the gun against the face of a Z, bringing it apart.

"Hop in" A lady shouted from the Land Rover she was in.
Tami grabbed Bisi with his right arm, pulled him on his back and carried Zilla and swiftly dashed off, the car door flinged open and quickly Tami jumped in.

The girl zoomed off, followed by three other cars behind.
"Thank you" Tami said to the girl and smiled at the other girl who was seated beside Bisi.
"Yeah, you should thank our scout that saw you, and where are you headed? "
Tami nodded his head before speaking.
"Came from Ondo for my wife and child"
The girl grinned as she rammed the car against the dead cars, creating forceful path.
"How sure are you that she's alive? "
"I know, they are alive" Tami replied and I think there might be a cure.

The girl suddenly stepped on brakes, jerking everyone forward.

"Why are they stopping? " A man said from the car behind.

The girl turned around and faced Tami then Bisi.
"Where?" the girl asked and pulled out a pistol from under the seat.
"Easy, we all need this and it's no big deal, we all want to come out from this " Tami said and at the same time calmed Zilla.
"Where is the cure?" the girl asked this time in a devilish tone.

"I won't tell you, kill me and it dies with me" Tami said angrily
"Not a problem for me" the girl said and was about pulling the trigger, then Bisi spoke.
"Stop! stop, it's me, I'm immune" Bisi said and looked at Tami who was disappointed
"Good boy, but either way, he dies"

The girl seated beside Bisi leaped forward, disarming the one with the gun, and smacked her face against the steering, sending her unconscious.
"I've always wanted to kill her" she said and pushed her out.

"Stop them, something is wrong, stop them by all means"

The girl took a detour and zoomed off.

"Bidemi, are you alright? " the man asked, puling the girl up to her feet.

"The little boy is immune, I know Zara is trying to get the money to herself, not that she's willing to help, follow them, and Zara is mine" Bidemi shouted and pulled off her jacket.

Re: Zs by Devilpen(m): 3:38pm On Mar 25
Zara took a sharp turn to the right, perfectly swaying the steering around, to bring back balance to the car.

Getting to a discreet environment, she stepped on brakes and listened as the pursuing car zoomed pass then through the opposite direction.
"Now " Zara said and turned around, pointing the gun at Tami, who became confuse, everything was happening so fast.

"What's going on, and what's it with pointing gun at me? " Tami shouted in annoyance.
"You See, admist every trial, we always want to make money, even it means killing our brethren, we all know this will be over, but then I need a life time settlement and I don't want anyone interfering " Zara said and giggled.
"There is offer from Eko state government, for who finds a cure, life insurance, monthly salary of 2milli, first class citizen, ARGGH, the list goes on, so this is my moment" Zara said and smacked the butt of the gun on Tami's head.
"Get down, you and that dog, NOOOW!! "

Bisi looked with fear, as Tami and Zilla alighted the vehicle
"On second thought" Zara said and shot Tami at the back.
"NOOOOO!!!! " Bisi shouted, tears already wielded in his eyes. He felt pain within as Tami dropped to the ground.
She jumped to the back of the vehicle and smacked Bisi on the head, sending him unconscious, closed the door and zoomed off.

Chapter 7
Give them Hell

Tami found himself standing right in the middle of a vast endless grave yard, everywhere dark and evil oozing from every angle.
"Dad" he heard his child's voice echo from behind and quickly turned around.
"Jewel" he replied, with a gasp
"You failed us, you abandoned us, you're far from us"

Tami shouted, sweating heavily, he slowly opened his eyes and saw himself laying on the bare ground, Zilla beside him, he was drenched in blood.

As he tried to pull himself up, he felt a sharp pain on the back, from his left shoulder blade.

"This arm is getting completely useless" he muttered to himself and pain, looking around, he saw the bullet in the floor, surprised at how it came out.

He looked at Zilla and saw blood filled in its body, he stretched his right hand back and noticed the wound was wider.
"How come this dog knows about life saving therapy, what ever way, I owe this dog twice for saving my life" he said within himself and stood up, wincing in pain.

"Come on boy " Tami said to Zilla and began walking forward, looking at the sign board on the ground, a light flier flew and hooked under his leg.

He slowly bent down, picked it up and went through the content in it.
"Huurrmph, as long as a cure will be made, but at the same time, he might be going through tough experience especially with someone like these people"

He grinned and winced in pain as pain surged through all his body, he walked up to a car with missing door on the driver's part and was relieved seeing the keys were intact and enough PMS to last him his journey, whatever means he had to see his wife and child, made sure they were alright, from there he would know what next to do.
He waited patiently for Zilla to get in and stepped on the accelerator, taking the over head bridge.

He tuned through the radio only to meet statics, holding the steering with only one hand, Tami knew he had only little chance of survival, adding to it, was the lot of blood he was loosing.
He suddenly stepped on brake, burning the tire against the asphalt.
He managed to put the gear on reverse and drifted to the left.
"ARGGH " he screamed as sharp pain went through his arm.

Going at 120km/hr, Tami knew a single mistake could end his life, but then he had to meet up.
From nowhere, a Z jumped on the car, hearing the loud thud, Tami became alert.
The Z dropped it's head, and growled at Tami who didn't hesitate in dipping two of his right fingers into the eye socket of the Z, almost loosing control, Tami quickly held the steering back with his right hand and used his amputated left arm to hit the Z, sending it off.

Another jumped at the moving car, through the driver's part, which had no door, with perfect timing Tami, stepped on brakes and pulled the hand brake, turned the steering to the right, crushing the Z with the body of the car, Tami heaved and saw from afar as Zs began to troop out from each side.

Tami scoffed and ignited the engine zoomed off. He killed the car engine, from the distance seeing Zara's car.

"She's is still way far from LASUTH, why is she here?" Tami asked himself seeing Zara puffing out smoke from her mouth, leaning against an electric pole.

Not quite long three Rovers appeared from distance.

"Zilla" Tami called out to the dog and whispered into its ear.

Getting to a discreet environment, she stepped on brakes and listened as the pursuing car zoomed pass then through the opposite direction.
"Now " Zara said and turned around, pointing the gun at Tami, who became confuse, everything was happening so fast.

"What's going on, and what's it with pointing gun at me? " Tami shouted in annoyance.
"You See, admist every trial, we always want to make money, even it means killing our brethren, we all know this will be over, but then I need a life time settlement and I don't want anyone interfering " Zara said and giggled.
"There is offer from Eko state government, for who finds a cure, life insurance, monthly salary of 2milli, first class citizen, ARGGH, the list goes on, so this is my moment" Zara said and smacked the butt of the gun on Tami's head.
"Get down, you and that dog, NOOOW!! "

Bisi looked with fear, as Tami and Zilla alighted the vehicle
"On second thought" Zara said and shot Tami at the back.
"NOOOOO!!!! " Bisi shouted, tears already wielded in his eyes. He felt pain within as Tami dropped to the ground.
She jumped to the back of the vehicle and smacked Bisi on the head, sending him unconscious, closed the door and zoomed off.

Chapter 7
Give them Hell

Tami found himself standing right in the middle of a vast endless grave yard, everywhere dark and evil oozing from every angle.
"Dad" he heard his child's voice echo from behind and quickly turned around.
"Jewel" he replied, with a gasp
"You failed us, you abandoned us, you're far from us"

Tami shouted, sweating heavily, he slowly opened his eyes and saw himself laying on the bare ground, Zilla beside him, he was drenched in blood.

As he tried to pull himself up, he felt a sharp pain on the back, from his left shoulder blade.

"This arm is getting completely useless" he muttered to himself and pain, looking around, he saw the bullet in the floor, surprised at how it came out.

He looked at Zilla and saw blood filled in its body, he stretched his right hand back and noticed the wound was wider.
"How come this dog knows about life saving therapy, what ever way, I owe this dog twice for saving my life" he said within himself and stood up, wincing in pain.


"Come on boy " Tami said to Zilla and began walking forward, looking at the sign board on the ground, a light flier flew and hooked under his leg.

He slowly bent down, picked it up and went through the content in it.
"Huurrmph, as long as a cure will be made, but at the same time, he might be going through tough experience especially with someone like these people"

He grinned and winced in pain as pain surged through all his body, he walked up to a car with missing door on the driver's part and was relieved seeing the keys were intact and enough PMS to last him his journey, whatever means he had to see his wife and child, made sure they were alright, from there he would know what next to do.

He suddenly stepped on brake, burning the tire against the asphalt.
He managed to put the gear on reverse and drifted to the left.

Going at 120km/hr, Tami knew a single mistake could end his life, but then he had to meet up.

"She's is still way far from LASUTH, why is she here?" Tami asked himself seeing Zara puffing out smoke from her mouth, leaning against an electric pole.

Not quite long three Rovers appeared from distance.

"Zilla" Tami called out to the dog and whispered into its ear.

Expecting Zilla to do as it was told, Tami became confused seeing it wag it's tail around, and going round in circle
"Do you think that dog saved your life?" a calm feminine voice came behind Tami which startled him to the marrow.
"Sshhh, I'm Hanah, saw what happened between both of you, so I decided to follow" She said and removed her sun glass.

Tami gulped, lost of words, he only nodded his head and winced in pain.
"What's up with the little boy?" Hanah asked and wiped of beads of sweat from her glowing dark skin.
"He's immune" Tami said and felt uncomfortable as Zara pulled Bisi hard behind her and exchange he d him for briefcase, handing him over to the men dressed in black.

"Let's spoil thier little party" Hanah said and brought out two pistols straped to her legs and gave one to Tami.
"I hope your aim is good" she said indirectly referring to his missing arm.
"I'm only missing an arm, not my senses" Tami replied.
**
***
Tami for the first time, brought down a human dead without any feeling of regret, he ducked beside a building as gun fire came at him, he suddenly began to feel dizzy, somehow he had to hang on.
Hanah on the other hand made sure the cars were immobilized by shooting at them.
Seeing things were getting intended, Zara grabbed Bisi, and held to the briefcase and attempted to escape through the nearest exit, only to be shot on the back by one of the dealers.

Bisi grabbed the case and dived beside a metal tank.
"Retreaaaaat!! " one of the dealers shouted seeing three of them were down already.

"The boy or the money! " another shouted and let out a horrible scream as a bullet bored into his right knee
"Fool! " the other shouted and ran off.

"Give them hell, hey come out" Hanah said and walked up to Tami who was already unconscious.

"Boy, get out here and help me carry him into the car" Hanah shouted at Bisi who was still not sure what next to do.

Chapter 8
Second Chance to Live

Hanah, squeezed her face irritates as She tried stabilizing Tami who was constantly going into shock, she peeped through the window, and walked back to Tami who was laying on the bed unconsciously.
"The wound is getting deeper " Bisi said "And he is heating up, what will we do? "
Hanah bite her lower lips and grabbed Bisi by the right wrist
"You're immune right? " Hanah asked with glimpse of hope in her face.
"Yes"
Hanah thought for a while and heaved, knowing her next step was based on just trial, everything could go wrong.
"I don't know how to make a vaccine out of you, but I was thinking since Zs could bite and get you infected, then vice versa " Hanah said and bit her lips again.
"There's just one option left"
"Which is? " Bisi asked calmly.
"Bite him"

Boy, get out here and help me carry him into the car" Hanah shouted at Bisi who was still not sure what next to do.

Chapter 8
Second Chance to Live

Hanah, squeezed her face irritates as She tried stabilizing Tami who was constantly going into shock, she peeped through the window, and walked back to Tami who was laying on the bed unconsciously.
"The wound is getting deeper " Bisi said "And he is heating up, what will we do? "
Hanah bite her lower lips and grabbed Bisi by the right wrist
"You're immune right? " Hanah asked with glimpse of hope in her face.
"Yes"

"I don't know how to make a vaccine out of you, but I was thinking since Zs could bite and get you infected, then vice versa " Hanah said and bit her lips again.
"There's just one option left"
"Which is? " Bisi asked calmly.
"Bite him"
***
***

Bisi stood before a broken standing mirror, he opened his mouth widely and focused on the long canines, he slowly closed his mouth and pulled off his shirt, looking at the numerous scars on his body, the various bites on his chest and arms.
"You've been through alot, since this apocalypse" Hannah's voice came from the entrance of the room.
"I don't have any option, I can't let him die or get infected" Bisi said and turned around.
"Come on" Hanah said calmly and patted Bisi on the shoulder as he got closer to her.

Hanah titled Tami's neck to the left and used methylated spirit in it, and gently rubbed it with a cotton wool.
"There, bite the veins"

Bisi growled softly and bent down against Tami's neck, he took a quick glance at Hanah and dipped his teeth into Tami's neck.

Gradually Tami's wounds began to heal, his veins began to go back to normal, his body also began to turn into golden color, blending perfectly with the pigment of his skin
"Seems it's working, we should be safe till when he is fully recovered, whenever that is" Hanah said and threw pieces of meat from the plate on the table to the ground for Zilla and poured water into a little oval bowl for the dog.
***
***
Both Bisi and Hanah got startled as something dropped on the roof of the building, she quickly put of the candle light and held tight to her pistol, resting it on her left pan with a torch on the left palm.
Another thud came again ,this time Zilla whimpered and stood up.
Everywhere went calm like nothing had happened, Hanah fixed her gaze on Tami who was fast asleep.
She gulped hard and took three steps back
***
***
Hanah felt a soft tap on her shoulder, and slowly opened her eyes, yawned lazily and was amazed to see Tami.
"Welcome back, you look... " she paused not certain of what to say
"Different" Tami replied "At least I'm alive and seems I'm cured"
"Yes, but not immune" Hanah replied and stood up.

Bisi also stood up and stretched his body, letting out cracking noises.
"Where are we? " Tami asked
"Festac "
Tami let out a broad smile and hugged Hanah tightly
"Thought as much, I'll have to get to the estate and I hope my wife is doing well. " Tami said and peeped through the hole of the window.
"That an hour journey from here, let's role"

Chapter 9
Homecoming
Re: Zs by germaphobe(m): 10:57pm On Apr 02
wow, did his arm grow backļ¼Ÿ, next episode pls oooo
Re: Zs by Devilpen(m): 10:23am On Apr 03
Chapter 9
Homecoming

Hanah slowly opened the door, and stepped outside, followed by Bisi, Zilla and Tami, they all stood in awe, seeing the countless number of dead crows on the ground, covering every inch of the ground.
"What's this?" Tami asked and looked at Hanah for explanation
"I never thought the number could be this much" Hanah replied
"What number? "
"From my findings, Zs cannot last more than 6 months without food, only a drop of blood can sustain them for that six month, seems that's what happened to these crows"
***
***
Hanah drove into the estate, which was totally deserted, the huge gate that led into the estate was already down to the floor, stench of dead humans filled the entire air, which made breathing much more difficult.

Tami adjusted himself and held tight to the pistol with him on the right arm, while he used his left amputated arm for support.
"Everyone stick close" Tami said, taking the lead.
Loud growls came from the right, startling all of them, looking at the direction, Zs were locked up in a huge mobile cell, as they proceed, they noticed more mobile cells with Zs locked up in them.

"We are here" Tami said and walked up to the building before them and placed a hard knock on the door.
Impatiently he placed another knock. The door partially came open, and Tami took steps backward, holding his gun up and signalled to Hanah. She walked towards the back of the door, and pulled it completely open.

"Hey!, drop the gun" a man shouted from inside, and felt relieved as Tami lowered the gun.
"Honey, are you alright" A feminine voice came from inside in a rather shaky tone.
"Clara! " Tami said beneath his breath.

His wife stood in shock seeing Tami right before her own eyes, he tried keeping calm, since all was still not clear to him.
"Who are you? " The man asked and took a quick glance at Tami's missing arm, and then at his odd body color.
"Huhn, my brother I told you about" Clara cut in and gave Tami a warning glance.

Hanah scoffed and rested on the balcony, watching as everything was unfolding.
"Where is Jewel?" Tami asked in annoyance and cocked his gun.
"Hey! Calm" Hanah said and held Tami's hand, preventing him from raising the gun up.
"I'll be happy if you just walk off away from here"
"She's my wife and here is my mother's house, and I'm here for her and my daughter, and where is my mother? " Tami shouted
"Check around in the mobile cage, and for the record, I know about you from the beginning and Jewel is my daughter, not yours"

Tami felt heart broken and broke into tears, his efforts were futile, his wife whom he cared about was not his after all, his mother already infected, he had been taking care of someone else's child.
***
***
Tami kept mute in the car, as Hanah drove to their destination,he was lost, even lost the will to live, everything was meaningless.
"You have to get it off your mind, it's not new" Hanah said
"I should have killed them all that instance" Tami said and sniffed.
Hanah drove the car into LASUTH and headed for the emergency ward, admiring how everywhere was heavily guarded.
A soldier ran up to them and waited patiently till they all alighted and asked them some questions.
"Follow me"

*Chapter 11*
*End of the Line*

Tami touched the splitted part of his face and slowly raised his head from the steering, he shook his head lightly, coming back to his senses, he turned around and saw Hanah remove the copper plating which was a covering to the machine's power button.

Hanah turned the key on the machine around, and from the upper part a led timer began countdown from five minutes.
"Hanah turn that thing off, if at all you'll be powering it, this is not the right place, it has to get to the military base, where it is more effective and stable" Tammy said calmly and attempted getting to Hanah
"This time, I won't smack the gun on your head, I'll put a bullet in you" Hanah said and pointed her gun at him.
A heavy bang suddenly came at the convoy, shifting it aside a little bit. Both Tami and Hanah stood still and again the hit came at the vehicle, this time much harder, it raised the vehicle and dropped it hard again making Hanah loose grip of her gun.
The windows of the vehicle shattered into pieces followed by the windscreen and from it Zs began rushing into the vehicle.

Tami slashed the ones coming from the left, each slash tearing them apart, swiftly he went for the right, a Z grabbed him from the broken windscreen and tried biting him, just then Hanah shot at it.
She grabbed Tami's arm and pulled him back to balance.
"We can't overcome them" Tami muffled and ripped a Z's neck apart.
***
***
*Military Base*

From the control room of the military base, the general paced around as the operators, punched furiously on the keyboard, with great speed, on the monitor, were display of different icons and syntax the general found hard to comprehend
"Sir" a soldier said, saluted and ran forward
"Good news? " the general asked
"No, it can't be override, we only have to hope, it's stable enough not to affect the marked out areas" the soldier replied
"What's the status? "
"2 minutes left sir" another shouted
"Heaven save us"
"One minute to commence launch initiation, turn off master engine to cancel launch initiation" a computerized voice said, and from the huge screens in the control room, missile heads were displayed, processing their launch sequence
***
***
Hanah screamed in pain as a Z bit off flesh from her right arm, she pulled the trigger at the Z and saw she was out of ammo, she screamed and smashed the butt of the gun against the Z's face.

Tami began panting heavily, his joints were wearing out, relentlessly the Zs continued squeezing themselves into the vehicle.
"Confirm final launch sequence " a computerized voice from the machine said.
Hanah looked at Tami with tears in her eyes, she was feeling the effect and it was catching up with her rapidly.
She turned around to go to the machine, only to be pulled back by a Z. Tami angrily slashed the Z's hand, letting it go off Hanah.

She crawled towards the machine and without thinking twice, she confirmed the sequence.
"This is the end of the line " Tami said as he saw trails of light in the sky.
***
***
*3 weeks later*

Tami slowly opened his eyes, at first everything was blurry, he shot his eyes and slowly opened it, few meters away, he saw Hanah laying on a hospital bed, two different drips going into her body.
He grunted and looked the opposite direction and saw Bisi fast asleep on the chair, he noticed he was looking normal, the golden skin was gone.

Zilla let out a loud bark which woke Bisi up.
"You're awake! " Bisi shouted in joy and dashed out of the room.
Somehow Tami couldn't feel his legs, or move his hands, it was then it dawned on him that he was not his former self.

"Hey!" Hannah's voice came at him " You finally woke up" she said weakly and smiled
"That was some rough decision we took "
"You took the decision" Tami replied
"Maybe, but we succeeded, I am alive, you're alive, you're paralyzed temporarily, in months time, you should be back to your normal life"

Clara entered into the ward, holdkng tight to her daughter Jewel
"Daddy"
Tami gulped hard, lost of words, he didn't know where she was here
"I know I'm the last person you'd wish to see, but I just hope you find the right one and find a place in your heart to forgive me " She said and turned around and took her leave.
"Don't think about it, things happen in life, and the money from the other day, it's intact, we can live life out of it" Hanah said and giggled
"Shut up and rest" Tami replied and smiled.
