Pan meets the zombie world

By kennymr

Horror / Action

Chapter 1

“Second star on the right, straight on ‘till morning. You’re almost home, Wendy,” shouted Peter Pan to the Darlings as they flew through the cool sky. Wendy noticed something was off and her bright smile soon turned into a distressed frown. The town was dead: no lights, no sounds, no... people. Naturally, Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael, and James rushed to see if their parents and dog, Nana, were safe. When Peter Pan peered through the window, he saw Mr. and Mrs. Darling gnawing at Nana’s entrails and brains. Peter Pan jetted to Wendy and her brothers and deterred them the other way.

“Nobody was home, maybe the police will know what’s going on,” Peter said to make sure Wendy didn’t lose her sanity.

While James, a boy in a top hat and spectacles, flew over his hometown, he noticed below him a little girl screaming as a deteriorating human chewed on her flesh like a teething puppy with razor sharp teeth. Speechless with shock and disbelief, James motioned to Wendy and Michael what he saw with bulging eyes.

Wendy screamed and asks, “What is that?! What is happening.”

There was no reply, since she didn’t notice that Peter had plummeted to the forest floor and passed out.  Wendy, Michael, and James slowly glided to the street, but not intently. Something was going wrong, none of them could fly anymore. That is not Wendy’s priority problem, they have got to find Peter. Wendy grabs her littlest of the brothers’ hands and searches the woods, hoping to find Peter and not run into whatever they saw back in the town.

“I’m starving,” Michael whined.

“We have to keep going, Michael,” replied Wendy. As they treked through the forest, they ran across someone’s backpack full of supplies: water, canned pineapple, two blankets, and a buck knife. Without a second thought, Michael grabbed a rock and stabbed a hole in the top of canned pineapple and chugged the juice.

James snatched the can away from Michael and said, “Wait, we might need to save some of these for later. We don’t know how long we could be out here.”

“But i’m so hungry,” said Michael.

“Okay just a couple of slices, then give them back to Wendy,” responded James. Wendy gently tucked the pineapple away back into the backpack. It was getting dark and about time to go to bed, so they decided to make camp. Because Wendy, James, and Michael had just came back from Neverland, they got really good at making forts and climbing trees. Michael, being the youngest, was an agile monkey making it to the highest limb of the three. Wendy pulled the two blankets out, tied two corners around two different branches to create a hammock. While Wendy slept on the biggest branch she could find, she let her brothers sleep in the two hammocks she had made. Even after midnight, Wendy still layed awake. Her head spun with an overwhelming amount of suspicions.

Wendy thought, “What if we never find him; What if he is already dead?” She soon reassured herself, “He is probably fine, He loves adventures, and he has fought pirates before, he knows what he is doing.” Wendy fell asleep with a tiny bit of comfort.

Leah Brown: This was an amazing read! I was hooked from the very first chapter, holding my breadth to see what would happen next. The characters are rich and vibrant, and the world Danielle has created is fascinating. If you love YA, you MUST read this book. Such a smart, brilliant debut novel. I loved it!

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming). She's one of my favorites now. The spelling mistakes are normal no big deal, the amazing plot makes up for it. Thank you ...

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

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.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Nichole P. Conard: The characters are well created and pull you along through the story. The plot is well thought out, with some interesting turns. I was unsure what was going to happen, several times in the story, which is a grand point, as who wants to know they have figured out the story correctly...once they ge...
