Rise of the MAD Flu: DAY 10 | 7:15am

I took one last look at the girl on our neighbor’s patio. This time she caught the movement of our bathroom curtain and sprung in my direction. The chains rattled as her arms reached out for me. Her body is colorless now. Her moans, which have been a constant reminder of just how hopeless this fight may be, grew more guttural. A fog was set across her eyes and as she clawed the air to gain an inch in my direction, her mouth opened to reveal the remnants of her dog, Otis, stuck between her teeth and a mutilated half-eaten tongue, [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: DAY 10 | 2:45am

Shadows pass across the barely lit sidewalks and garage alleyways. The undead yearn for the living with moans that echo between the buildings. The stench rises with the moisture of the air as the rain washes away bits of rotting flesh from the source of that miserable sound. I can’t be sure if these are stragglers that somehow managed to slip in through the gate as residents attempted to escape, only having been met with flooded streets, or if our gates were even intact at all any more. Despite being a couple buildings down from overlooking the entrance to our community, [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: DAY 9 | 7:42pm

We now have a destination; Sandpoint, Idaho. It was not two years ago that we were planning for a trip to Sandpoint. At that time my mom and her husband, Lee, were talking to an architect up there about building on a piece of land they had bought. The plan was to have their house built in to the landscape, into the side of a hill. The architect they were talking to, Lyle Barber, had studied under Frank Lloyd Wright in another lifetime, but still had an undying passion for the design process. These travel plans are going to be different, [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: Day 9 | 3:15pm

I’m no soldier. I was out of my element. I knew, though, that if I was going to save Crystal, I had to be fast and efficient – get in, get out. Timing was going to be crucial. Steph kept watch on our staircase, looking out of the window to the front gate (we were one of the few residents lucky enough to have a gate), ready to unlock the door and let us in when needed. If there were any zombies tailing us, we were going to have to pack up and get out. Crystal may have had a lucky [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: Day 9 | 2:52pm

I didn’t ever want to look out of that window again. I knew nothing good would come of it, but there was something in the back of my mind that kept pulling…something that drew me to that window to look one more time…something in the corner of my eye that I may have missed. When I received this message in reply to my last post, those suspicions had been confirmed: HELP PLEASE!!! I saw you! were looking out your bathroom window...looking at something in the direction of your neighbors patio...I couldnt see what you were looking at but it wasnt good. [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: DAY 9 | 2:05 pm

There’s a scratching sound coming from our neighbor’s house. We share our west wall with two neighbors, spanning our laundry room and bedroom closet, but this noise seemed to be coming from somewhere else. I followed the sound to our bathroom. Our bathroom window looks out onto one of our neighbor’s patios. Nice family. I remember meeting them a few times as I took the dog out for a walk. They had a Boston Terrier. It was still a puppy when I saw it, crazy little thing, full of energy. The little girl walking it was always smiling. I can’t imagine [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: DAY 9 | 9:28 am

If you take away all of a human being’s weaknesses (fear, pain, any ties to his own humanity), what is left is a determined, unstoppable force. Now take away all high-level cognitive functions. What’s left is an unstoppable force driven by nothing but primitive desires. As if that wasn’t enough, now strip away their mortality. They require no food, no water, and no sleep. Their numbers grow exponentially, and they cannot die…they’re already dead! The only way to stop a zombie is to stop all brain function (i.e. decapitation, blunt force trauma, or a shot to the head). Most of what [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: Day 8

Last night, we hear this story… “Emerald Elementary fell prey to MAD flu yesterday, as a student by the name of Robert Munez, diagnosed minutes before the attack, lashed out against the school nurse, Mrs. Monica. Eustace Collins, the principal at Emerald Elementary, said this in regards to the attack, “She was a good, caring woman, putting others before anything else. To see her like that…torn to shreds like a victim of some wild animal…” he continues “how could a child…” he shakes his head “how could a child be capable of something so horrendous, so violent?” The reporter continues, “Robert [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: DAY 7

Flu vaccine commercials are running continuously and the President has urged everyone, young and old, to get vaccinated. I’m scared to death. I realize this is serious, but I can’t risk vaccination. I can’t risk subjecting ourselves to the infected and contagious, and based on the research I did on the previous scare (H1N1), the vaccine would only be useful if targeting a specific strain of flu, which has most likely mutated beyond the strain originally tested for. There are reports of this starting as some kind of kind of bio-chemical weapon, as military bases were the first to be hit [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: Day 6

I’d been wondering what my mom meant when she said she’d seen things. I’ve never heard her so worked up. Steph got home shortly after myself. It was then that she clarified the static-filled conversation we had as she was driving through the mountain pass toward home. She told me what had happened before leaving early for the day; how she began to question everything she’s ever believed in, and come full circle. A child by the name of Robert was feeling ill. From what I’ve heard in the past, this wasn’t unusual. Robert was gone 3 days a week with [...]
