The future

Sheila ran.
She ran as fast as she could.
Down the streets of what had once been a lovely city.
Now there was only metal pieces and broken buildings everywhere.
Her heart beat so fast.
Behind her she could hear them, moaning and growling.
"Brains"Sheila turned her head.
The Zombies weren't far behind her.
"Woah, these zombies are fast" She thought to herself as she ran.
The year was 4033.
A dark, scary and dangerous future.
Zombies and monsters had taken over the world after the big war of aliens and humans back in 4000. Sheila ran into a broken building and hid behind a desk.
"Man whats up with these zombies, can't they just leave me alone" She mumbled.
The zombies walked past the building.
Sheila peeked carefully up from behind the desk.
"Phew" She let out a relieved sigh.
Sheila was 18 years old.She had brown long hair, and was wearing a hoodie, baggy jeans and a colourful hat.
She also wore big, black hipster glasses and had braces.
"I gotta get to Kristina, she has just what I need"
She got up from behind the desk, took a quick look to see if there was any tools she could use as a weapon, before she ran off.
After some hours she finally arrived at Kristina's place.
Kristina was a girl with lots of humor and a colourfull personality.
She was wearing a green cat hat, big hipster glasses, a dark blue hoodie and jeans.
Somewhat she looked like Sheila.
Kristina was a smart kid and after the war she had opened up a shop selling all kinds of stuff she had stolen or found from different dimensions.
"Sheilie! So nice to see ya, what can I get cha?" Kristina asked jolly.
Sheilie was Kristina's nickname for Sheila.
She had this weird, country like accent.Sheila smiled.
"Got anything for me for this month?" Sheila asked.
Kristina help up a green bag."Here ya go, this is just for you, on the house" Kristina smiled.
Sheila was such a close friend she always got a little extra and sometimes she would even get things for free.
The reason for that was a secret between her and Kristina.
Sheila opened the bag.
It contained water, candy, some fresh donuts, a knife and a crowbar.
Sheila smiled.
"Thanks this will do just fine"
Kristina giggled.
"Here take these" Kristina handed her a little plastic bag filled with bottlecaps.
Sheila looked shocked."W-where did you get these!?" she asked serious.
Kristina winked.
"Let's just say I know some places" she replied.
Bottlecaps were used as money these days.
Sheila hugged Kristina before she ran off.
Sheila was going to another dimension, were a lot of her friends were living.
She held a scissor up in the air.
And with a snip she opened a rift in the air and jumped in.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.

What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

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...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story.
