Chapter 1

“Enid, this place could be perfect if it’s cleared out,” said Glenn as he stood facing Vestavia Hills High School.

Glenn and Enid had traveled all the way from the overrun Alexandria, where they were separated from the rest of the group, who they believed to be dead. After being chased by a herd of walkers for over 700 miles, they finally had enough time to settle down somewhere.

“Let’s go check it out but we need to stay together and be extremely meticulous. If either of us think it’s an overwhelming amount of walkers, we have to get out quickly. We don’t have enough time to fool around here if this isn’t going to work.” Enid schemed.

“Trust me Enid, I know what I’m doing. I’ve been making runs since this all started. It shouldn’t be too hard. Judging by the parking lot this place is a desert.” Glenn said. Glenn and Enid then began to walk into the high school. After struggling with trying to open the door for five minutes they saw a figure walking towards the door. While they belligerently argued over whether the figure was a walker or a survivor, the figure began to open the door.

“Hi my name is Ben, but you can just call me bro because we are all brothers here. Welcome to my paradise broskies.” Ben said. “Let me introduce you to the clan.” Ben then took them around the high school where they ended up at a cafeteria full of food where a lady named Wanda greeted them. “Y’all hungry?” Ben asked realizing that they looked as hungry as horses.

“We haven’t eaten in miles. None of the stores or restaurants around here had even a crumb in them. I’m guessing this is where it all ended up.” Glenn said hungrily.

“Malika and Brayden make runs for us. When there were less walkers, we got as much food and resources as possible in a 10 mile radius.” Ben informed Glenn and Enid. “Here, eat up.” Ben said, handing a feast to the pair of survivors. After they ate, Ben took them up to a room that he called the family room.

On the way up there, Enid asked, “How many of you are here and how long have you guy been surviving in this place?” Ben then told her how they had a small group of around 30 people and most of them had been there since the beginning. Glenn and Enid met the group and were astonished by normal they looked. The conclusion was made that the group had probably never actually known what it was like outside the school. At this point, Glenn remembered how there was a huge mob of walkers headed straight toward the school.

Glenn warned the group, “We came all the way from Washington DC. The reason we came here is because we were being chased by a whole herd of walkers. I’m not talking about a small herd. I’m talking about a herd bigger than any amount of walkers you’ve ever seen together before…combined.”

Virginia, who seemed to be the leader of the group said, “No need to worry. There is a reason why we have been able to survive here for so long. This school is walker-proof. I assure all of you that herd will not be a prob-” A loud moan from the hallway interrupted Virginia. Shruti went into the hall to check it out. “It’s Wanda!” she shouted. But it wasn’t Wanda. Somehow, Wanda had been infected, and what followed after her looked like a scene straight out of a horror movie.
