Chapter Two (Cont.)Mature

Part 3 of 5

When I woke up, all I saw was Alex's chest and chin, and the ceiling. I couldn't have been asleep for more than a few hours, right? "Whoa..." I yawned before sitting up. It smelled like breakfast was made and Alex was just there waiting for me to get up. I guess an apocalypse is no time for romance; I need to stop fancying him. "Good morning sleepy-head." Alex laughed before jabbing me in the side with his finger. "Y'know you think it tickles but it's just painful..." I muttered, standing up. "Sorry." Alex smiled innocently as he stood up as well, "Come on. They're probably waiting for us."
Alex and I walked out of my mother's room into the living room to the other six sitting in a circle on the floor. "Good morning!" They greeted me. "Gosh wh-" my yawn interrupted mid-sentence, "What happened last night?" I couldn't remember a thing, as if I were drunk. "Well um-" Jayden started, about to explain. Jasmine stopped him by slamming her elbow into his shoulder. "Right now isn't a-" Jasmine began, until she glanced at my grimace. I remembered everything that split second and fell to my knees. "That's right..." I whispered to myself. No, no more crying. Be strong for the group. They literally need you, Sammi. I rubbed my eyes and they all just stared blankly at me with wide eyes.
"I'm sorry. I'm alright. We'll deal with it later, let's just eat right now." I said, trying to fake a smile. Alex and I joined the circle and we all ate our frozen breakfast meal. Man I'm happy electricity hasn't gone out yet. Oh please don't tell me I jinxed it like a cliché in those zombie apocalypse movies. I forgot the thought and we all peacefully ate the meal, enjoying it as much as we could in this situation. "Alright, since we're all here and focused, I wanted to fully prep the group and organize it. First is organizing everything out." I said loud enough for everyone to hear, "I would like to start with the exec. Now, as I was thrown under the bus for leader yesterday, is there anybody else who'd like to try for it?" Everyone nodded 'no.' I glared at all of them for a split second. "I guess it's decided then. We will need a vice in case anything happens." No one said a word. "Okay, guys come on. This won't work unless you cooperate with me." I semi-growled. A few mumbles here and there, but there were no actual words made.
"Ladies and gentleman, do you honestly believe that nothing will happen to me?" I demanded. "We've seen you kill zombies several times already, and you aren't that much emotionally distraught about it otherwise..." Jayden said; he cleared his throat at the end, probably to avoid causing me more misery. "And you've dodged many more than the rest of us would have been able to." Alex added. I put my fist up to my mouth and held the second knuckle of my index finger to my tooth, my thumb slightly pushing up my bottom lip at the corner.
