When Zombies Attack! Part 2
What lies in wait.
When I finally made it to school, I felt a little bit relieved that I had made it in one piece. I just kept telling myself that things would get better as walked down the halls. The gym was abuzz with the news stories from last night as well as the girl who had died in my arms. As I was walking around I started to realize that I had a very unwelcome feeling of dread casting over me when suddenly I felt a hand on my shoulder. I spun around to come face to face with, wait for it; my EX GIRLFRIEND! Natasha quickly engaged me with mindless conversation that I immediately drowned out with thoughts of pulling the fire alarm for my brain's safety. As I stood there feeling sorry for myself for having to go through this, the school's cop approached me from behind. As if he saw my blatant sorrow for myself he said, "I need you to come with me right now", and I happily complied with his order.
I could feel the stares from the other students and teachers as I left the gym with officer Hozitwintz, but that didn't bother me. What bothered me was his demeanor. He led me to his office and as I stepped inside he closed the door behind us. "Do you think this is funny son?" He said as I was taking a seat at the front of his desk. I crooked my head back towards his direction and said "Pardon?" He moved in front of me and I could now clearly see the anger on his face as he went on "that girl you had run into you're arms, where is she now?" For a moment I just stared at him like he was trying to make a bad joke. Finally I said "sir, I don't know what is going on; but that girl died in my arms." He looked me up and down before saying, "then why is her body no longer in the morgue?" It was right at that time that the bell rang for first period. As I went to stand up he put his hand on my shoulder and said "you're not going anywhere until I get my answers." I looked up into his steel blue eyes and said "you're beautiful when your angry." He did not like that comment at all! As his face started to contort with anger, the fire alarm went off. As I stood up and went towards the door officer Hozitwintz said, "I will find out what is going on, and when I do; you can kiss your ass good-bye." I said nothing to that smug bastard as I went out the door to find out what in the hell was going on. First thing I noticed was the strange smell in the air. It smelled like rotten eggs or bad fish, something like that, but I figured it out as soon as I walked out the front door and saw what was waiting for us all in the parking lot.
