Plunged into a world of chaos and terror, follow Emily as she strives to understand the true meaning behind love, family, and trust.

Prologue

It all started when a foolish man decided to eat a batch of a new, undiscovered species of mushrooms that he had picked in his backyard for lunch.

Anthropophagitus, they called it. Anthropophagitus was what he became infected with.

What happened next, well, it was just a quick blur. In the span of a week, the infection had spread to the entire neighborhood like wildfire, and was spreading to the next block before anyone realized what was going on.

So the government sent a group of scientists accompanied by a squad of trained soldiers to investigate the situation. And that's when the true horror of the infection was revealed.

It was passed on through bites, like rabies. The fungus transformed the human into a cannibalistic creature that craved for the flesh of other humans. The infected lost their minds, stopped at nothing to get to their target. The fungus completely controlled them. Whether the real human inside the vessel was still alive, trying to fight the parasite and the desire for blood, nobody knew.

Infection was also quick. Everyone had become infected within the first two days of being bitten.

Good news came about two weeks after the breakout. The government claimed to have rounded up all infected and were doing tests on them to create vaccinations.

But victory was short-lived. The fungus had no vaccination. Normally, a person would be vaccinated against a disease by injecting a weak form of the pathogen into them, so the body could "fight" the weak pathogen and create memories of how to fight it off. Except, with this fungus, there was no weak form.

It was strong. Strong enough to take over the human body and turn it into a savage killing machine.

And people were scared. Terrified.

So they lined up to be injected with the vaccination, to protect themselves against the infection and within the promised two days, all turned insane.

The world was plunged into chaos. Some infected managed to make it into other countries, and halfway across the globe Germany had also decided to vaccinate their citizens in case the fungus managed to make it from the U.S all the way to Europe. This was, of course, before the news that the vaccinating everyone would have a devastating effect on the world. I guess it would have been a good idea.

In the blink of an eye, civilization turned upside down. It was kill or be killed again. Well, with a third option. Be infected.

Some people had been smart. They'd booked plane tickets to other continents before the vaccination had been distributed to the hospitals.

Everyone else became trapped after the vaccines. Everyone else forgot about money and their jobs for the first time in hundreds of years. Everyone else started fighting for their survival like a human version of the animal kingdom.

So welcome to the new world. Welcome to my new world.
