Dead Already

By theangelCas

Scifi / Adventure

Pilot

It was just six or seven months ago when people started getting sick. Well, at least that's what they called it. They were just "sick." It didn't take long for this "sickness" to spread. Everywhere.

No one could pinpoint where it started, but it was obvious how it spread- biting. If you were bitten by one of the infected, you would become sick and die within the week.

And then you would wake up again.

"Zombies, man! Real like zombies!" Dean laughed, hitting the steering wheel as he drove along the empty road, Sam beside him, as always.

"We don't know that for sure, yet," Sam didn't even look up from the newspapers he was reading as he talked to his overly-excited brother. It was about the most recent vic. A 30 year old nurse had been bitten by one of these "zombies" during his shift. He became increasingly sick, andafter 3 days of lying in bed, he died. The next morning, before anyone even knew he had passed, he woke up and attacked his wife.

At first they (or Dean at least) had almost been excited for this case. There were real, in-the-flesh, zombies! But soon it became apparent that this epidemic was nothing like they had ever seen before, and even the entire hunting community was powerless to stop it.

As it spread, it sent the world into panic. Chaos. Doctors and Hunters alike could not figure out how to stop it, or even how it started. The only thing they learned was how to kill them: by destroying the brain.

"So you're telling me that the only way to kill it is a head-shot?" Dean questioned his brother, who had just got off the phone with Bobby.

"I guess. Or you could bash its head in." Sam shrugged. "It's all about the brain. Apparently Rufus ran into some down in Florida. He shot it in the heart, used silver, salt, the works. Nothing killed it until he shot it right in the head."

In just a few months, the world was suddenly a scene from "28 Days Later." The government was gone, and most people were either dead or in hiding. The world was a totally different place... but the Winchesters had survived.

And they weren't the only ones.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real.

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

You have very complex and intellectual plot line, with your many loveable character and that hint of 'will they, won't they' is ju...

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...

Erica: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!
