Death Era – 15: Day 4 Part IV

Doing nothing at all, as Ted Wisher only watches his hope disappear without a trace, as they’re no point in resisting anymore. As this might be the end of the road for Ted.

However, the sounds of a roaring engine could be heard louder and louder waking Ted from his state of mind, realising how close this zombie is, only less than a meter away of bitting into his flesh.

Even if the car heading Ted’s way did wake Ted from his state of mind, it was still too late, or that what it seems.

With a glass bottle been thrown out from the shotgun seat of the slowing down car which headed towards Ted and that zombie about to bite into Ted.

With the glass bottle shattered in pieces, and that sound of glass breaking makes the zombie turn its had and gazed what lays behind it with its white eyes.

“Run!” Shouted the young man with his dark blonde hair and his grass green eyes could be seen, as Ted did what he told and get away from the zombie turning its head back to face Ted Wisher.

The mysterious young man got out of the car with a wooden bat in his hand dashing towards Ted with the zombie that on its knees trying to get up when this mystery man smashes the bat cracking the zombie head open.

“Ahh… close call right?” Said this unknown young man that laughed to himself with sweat not being tied physical but mentally.

“Thanks…” Ted said.

“No probs, not every day you can open up someone head, the name is Tom Winker you?” Tom said that taking a deep breath, getting himself prepared mentally.

“No problem mate, not every day you get to open someone head.” Said the man as he took a deep breath: “Tom Winker, you?”

“Ted Wisher…” Ted said in a low voice as his courage drain out of him and his mental state? Might be even worse as Tom’s this mysterious man that saved Ted out his fate being food for the flesh-eating monsters.

“It’s not like I am going to bite you… sorry wrong joke.” Tom said the seeing how uneasy Ted is, but before Tom could say anything, a zombie walked in front of them with guts of its hanging from its stomach heading towards Ted and Tom is at.

“Nasty, I will be back.” Tom said that as he smashes the bat into the head cracking its open as the zombie fall knees first when it hit the ground.

“That’s a nasty one, how much longer are you going to be Tom? We need to head back!” Said the thin man in the car that looks at Tom and Ted while seating on the driver seat of this car.

“I will be right there, Bill! This is Bill, my friend. I met on the day well you know that flash?” Tom said as Ted does recall going blind with a flash of light that suddenly came out of nowhere blinding him and the next thing, the date of 11th of March turn to 12th of March and zombies roaming the street his flat is on.

“Greetings are nice and all, we really need to be going, Tom.” Bill said with his plain looks and his black coal hair that very short nearly enough to be bold.

“Ahh, no matters. Say want to come along? I am sure you wouldn’t last long if you by yourself.” Tom Winker said as he offers his hand to Ted whose still on the ground.

As Ted didn’t really say anything as he grabs Tom’s hand helping him getting up from the ground, as the two of them headed int the car that both Tom and Bill drove here.

When Ted enters the back seats, he notices the odd box filled with pictures, rings and other stuff, and the word written on the box says ‘in the Memories of’.

“Oh, that?” Tom went noticing Ted took notice of that box: “Some people out there even at the place we came from doesn’t know what happened to their loved ones… I’ll only want to put the ones still looking for their beloved ones at ease or know they might be… one of them.”

“He just has some massive ego, do not worry about it, and I am sure there no pawnshops out there anymore didn’t you left that life behind?” Bill said as this did get Ted interested what he meant life behind?” Bill said as he honestly thinks Tom Winker idea of his is a foolish one.

“What you mean by massive ego? I’ll only want to put others mind at ease, not knowing if they beloved ones still alive or not… even if it will hurt them, but it will hurt more not knowing.” Tom said as Ted just like Bill thought it’s a hopeless and foolish idea.

But both of them cannot say, after all, both of them also has loved ones out there without a clue what happened to them.

As Ted didn’t dig into that matter until something within that box of memories gains his attention.

“How… where did you get this?” Ted went as his face went pale as if he saw a ghost going to the waistband, a blue waistband with a rose on it, as Ted know this so well even the marking inside the letters of LW, Lisa Wisher.

Sorry day late! I were busy with family matters, so I am sorry for the delay!

Death Era – 14: Day 4 Part III

Ted’s eyes widen seeing the tip of that knife pointed at him, as the only thing on his mind, and that is he should leave as soon he can. However, when Ted gazed at the car, Davie Markson also notices Ted’s looking at the vehicle.

“Do not bother. What you think you are Ah!?” Davie went as he pushes Ted into the wall behind, as Ted’s back hit the wall behind him at that moment Davie grabs the collar of his hoodie while Remi went to Ted pockets and took the keys in his hoodie pocket.

“Like trash like you need this, rot away like the person you are,” Davie said walking away with Remi Cox as those two didn’t bother to look at Ted for a second time, as Reece Shaw looked at Ted and at Davie and Remi walking away like they didn’t do anything wrong.

Are they going to rob a fellow human and leave him to rot out here? But Reece Shaw just like Nell the other woman in their group doesn’t have the backbone to asked Davie either Remi who are the backbone of this little group of theirs.

It’s very common within any kind of groups out there to have those of with backbone and those just numbers making up that group and even if Nell nor Reece does have the backbone to asked Remi and Davie to take Ted Wisher with them, think they will bring him along knowing what he did?

As Ted Wisher didn’t look up as he hears the roaring of the engine, even himself has no backbone, nothing more than a coward who Ted is.

With nothing he can do about them leaving, Ted only got up where he is, just gazed at where they went before walking off randomly.

No idea where Lisa is, nothing matters to Ted, he is used to people walking over him, used to be the lowest of all in other eyes, his father and now even his own sister left him.

Feeling empty inside, as this feeling soon stopped when Ted stopped and stood there within the middle of the street looking at the zombie ahead.

With its bloody mouth biting into the middle-aged man flesh, feasting upon the dead man with his guts on display and other inside parts. Ted felt like something inside him trying to get out of him, as he felt sick seeing this horrify screen of someone insides so close.

Sure, Ted has seen people been eaten alive from his flat but that difference in the distance as well being so close is, even more, horrify closer is than being a far away.

As Ted didn’t want to alarm the zombie or any others that could be roaming the around where he is, slowly walking backwards with his eyes glued onto the zombie eating away.

With Ted slowly walk backwards, but as he did, he wasn’t focused behind him if Ted did he will notice the zombie with its pale white skin and white eyes looking at Ted walking backwards where it is.

As the zombie’s mouth opened as it reaches its hand towards Ted, with its fingers grabs onto Ted’s hood pulling Ted toward its!

With Ted’s body being pulled by the hood of his hoodie within the grips of the monster that doesn’t stay quite dead. As it pulled Ted towards it, with Ted’s sea blue eyes looked at the teeth of the zombie that drew him towards its opening its mouth ready to take a bite into him.

Ted’s heart stopped, and his brain turned into a complete mess seeing his time to meet death came so soon. But as it might be due to shoddy road work or the fact between Ted’s and this zombie lay a hole that is 12cm deep which Ted steps into it throwing both of them off balance.

Ted and this zombie both fell to the ground with the grips of the zombie’s holding onto Ted’s hood ripped off with the sudden twist off losing balance.

With the zombie that has slightly higher strength than the average man has, was enough to rip off that hood making Ted no longer held by the grasp of the zombie doesn’t mean he is out of the hook yet.

As Ted gazed at the zombie widen mouth, who is laying only a half meter away from him! Ted’s heart beats rapidly like a drum. As he kicked the zombie next to him, pushing it away from him.

“huff! Ahh… ha…” As Ted breathes heavily as his whole body felt like stone, heavy and unable to move, fear in the forms of chains holds him in place, not allowing him to move.

Fear can do all kind of things, making invisible and none existed chains to tie those afeard down like Ted, and it’s also fear that allows them to realise how the world really looks like.

As Ted only stares in fear at the zombie so close yet again, with his blue eyes widen in horror, as if the rope they call hope is getting thinner and thinner until its too thin to hold onto hope.

Is this the end? Ted thoughts so, as the mouth of the zombie wide up and so close to bite into his flesh while Ted just stays where he is as if he some kind of stone that isn’t meant to move at all.

Death Era – 13: Day 4 Part II

“No… stay away, stay away!” Ted went as he walks backwards and bumps into the car behind him. Ted looked behind himself when his back hit the opened door of the car seeing the keys still in the ignition. With a gamble, Ted heads into the car hoping it will start.

Ted Wisher had never driven before as he never had the money to afford to learn how to drive one never mind owning one. So when Ted closes the door of the car and starts the roaring car engine with everything going well with the car itself.

However the first thing Ted did not on purpose, and that was to ram the back of the car into the flesh-eating monster of a zombie trying to break into the way flatting it.

“Shit! Sorry!” went, as he kicked down on the accelerator messily driving the car as this is the first time Ted droved, as it clearly can tell this is driving done by a novice.

As Ted almost smashes into a yellow car from his crazily like driving. With the thought that he hopes he doesn’t crash into anything on his way to Woodhead the place, he has been heading since coming out of his flat.

Upon arriving at Woodhead at the house Lisa his twin sister lives at, Ted left the car and head in front of this house that his sister lives in.

“Maybe I shouldn’t come here… no we family… so she should help me right?” Ted said to himself looking through the window, as he knows he shouldn’t be here, the last time he been here didn’t end well.

With a deep intake of breath, before Ted tires to open the door of this house, but as he did it is locked?

“Lisa! It’s me! Lisa? You, home right? Where the…?” Ted went looking through the window seeing nothing within the living, did someone robs his sister place? Ted wonders as he can hear something from behind him.

“If you are looking for that sister of yours, she doesn’t live there anymore.” Said a young woman with her brown ash hair and her green coat, as she is followed by two other men and another woman all of them holding onto melee weapons.

“You know him?” Said one of the men his name is Reece Shaw with his thick glasses and his smart shirt as well his bald head, with his age, is in the 40s and a tutor from Sheffield University.

“He is Lisa twin brother, watch out this guy is scum.” Said the brown ash woman with her long hair and her average looks as she gives Ted a disgusting looked that Reece and the other notice.

“Wait he is that guy that cut himself, I bet he is here to bother his sister more, lowlife she is not here.” Said the fairly-fit and well looking tall man with the same aged as Ted with his ink black hair and brown eyes of his looked down at Ted who slowly backing away.

“I see, so she not here… do you know where I can find her?” Ted said as the black hair young man named Davie Markson looked at Ted as he walked closer to him.

“Know what, why don’t you drop dead? You just the worst, you know that? Because of you two friends of mine had to move out of our street, two honest people that I get on well enough as some fucker, went here and had to mess their lives up, and now this same fucker want to know where they are?” Davie said walking up to Ted and staring him down, as for Ted himself who is a coward didn’t even look Davie in the eyes.

“Coward.” Went the woman or Remi Cox with the loathing look in her face as she didn’t even want to bother with scum that only cares about gambling and dragging people down with him.

“Let go.” Remi Cox said as she is not willing to breathe the same air as this waste of human being.

“Is it alright to leave him alone? What if those things come here?” Said the woman with long black hair with her age is in the 30s. She isn’t the only wanted to know if they willing to leave another human being behind as Reece also the same.

“Nell, do not bother with him, he can be eaten by those things all I care,” Davie said as he stopped looking at the car that wasn’t there, the group of five are planning to look for somewhere safe and walking on foot is hard as it is.

“This car? This car doesn’t belong to you does it?” Davie said, in all honesty, he doesn’t give two shits if Ted lives or not. After all, he genuinely cared about Lisa Wisher enough to even has a thing towards her, but he didn’t cross that line since he also closes with Mark.

And due to learning of Ted did he truly hated Ted’s guts to the core, with his cold eyes on Ted.

“Give me the keys,” Davie said.

“There is enough room in there for six of us, and I am sure that-” However before Reece could finish what he is saying Remi butted in.

“Reece stop. Hand over the keys after all when you die the world will be better off, so choose to die now or later?” Remi Cox said that pointing the kitchen knife at Ted, in the eyes of hers and Davie’s, Ted isn’t even counted as human. Even willing to kill him for those keys.

Death Era – 12: Day 4 Part I

“What the matter?” Ted asked when he notices Mark been staring at him since he came back in.

“Something wrong…? Who knows, maybe it’s the so-called zombies outside or the ones named them zombies knows too much what going on… and why is it the 13th?” Mark said looking at his phone.

Before he knew it, he was on the ground knocked out and the date changed from the 12th of March to 13th? Of course, Mark doesn’t know the Great Flash put everyone on earth asleep for a whole day which is why Mark is confused about the date.

“Nothing major, no it is. I do not mind telling you, but it will be hard to believe… its all started with a flash of light…” Ted didn’t care if he told Mark Marron about the fact he has memories of his past self, which is really in the future that about to come while drinking a cup of water. Ted began to tell Mark about the fact when he died he woke up 20 years back in the past on the same day of the Great Flash.

“What the heck you mean by that?” Mark said that with his head felt like shit with more he knows the more his headache hurts of accepting unbelievable information of the hard reality he has to accept: “You didn’t come here to chat didn’t you?”

Mark said hearing about the fact he has memories from the future self in him. If he really does why the trouble coming here?

“When I search for Lisa, I find out by someone that I was close to in my past life had told me Lisa, and most likely you as well been killed at the first day which is why I am here,”

Ted said that, as he thought about it, the woman he killed out of mercy mostly likely the main threat today to Lisa and Mark if he wasn’t here. With Mark personality, he will dash forward like a hero to save her and bring her in and only a matter of time she will turn and infect Lisa and Mark.

Another way is the gang of zombies could get to Mark trying to save the infected woman and Lisa will come out hearing Mark yells of his limbs being ripped apart will trigger her trauma making her the perfect loud sitting duck.

“Who is that person? The one that told you our deaths?” Mark asked hearing that Ted learnt by someone else that he and Lisa were turned does that mean that person must be the one that ended them when they were zombies?

“His name is Tom Miller he is, was a friend,” Ted said as he recalled the day of his first time outside in Death Era on the 4th day…

.

.

.

Past life, day 4 on the 16th of March.

On the streets of Sheffield city, lays a young man with his black as coal hair and his blue eyes gazes at the strange people with some of them missing flesh and blood stains and even the odd ones have blood dripping from their wounds.

With clear white eyes searching for their next meal. With slow moments due to their heavy as lead bodies, as these people are zombies roaming the street ahead.

And on this road behind a bus is a young man or Ted Wisher himself with his hood up with worn-out shoes of his and pants and hoodie are both black hidings behind this bus peeking at the gang of zombies ahead waiting for a new feast to come along.

It has been quite a few days since all of this happened and also the first time Ted been out of his flat since everyone starting to eat each other from the dead. And at this moment Ted Wisher is on his way to Woodhouse the place his sister lived him hoping she could spare any kind of food to him.

With his back leaning on the bus and him peeking on the zombies ahead hoping to find the timing to move with a frying pan he took with him when he left his flat.

But a sound of someone footstep is sounded as Ted’s eyes widened in shock coming in front of him as he turns his face only to meet eye to eye with a pair of white clear eyes staring at him.

Ted’s blue eyes only stares at the zombie slowly coming towards him with its mouth opening ready to bite into his flesh! With the surface of the pan pushes to the zombie’s face making the zombie unable to bite Ted.

“Fuck-fuck!” Ted went as he kicked off the flesh-eating monster off him and got up and made a run for it.

Ted heart rapidly beats in fear of this horror that is happening all around him, in fear he will be its next meal if he isn’t careful.

Dashing down the street he is on only slow down when he goes out of breath. When Ted took his breather, he notices how clear and beautiful the sky is as if the city and the sky just don’t match not at all.

But that sense of safety didn’t last for long when Ted soon heard from behind him yet another zombie that is trying to reach out to grab him.
