These colonies of humans have inhabited abandoned shopping centres around the world, and began to prepare for the attack of the undead warriors.
This story follows a certain group in England. The leader of this group being a young man, known to the rest of the group as D.

The sunset used to be brilliantly beautiful. I remember when I'd used to watch it, the orange glow and the pink clouds. I used to be mesmerised by its incredible beauty. But now all I saw was a warning. Darkness was creeping in and danger was soon to follow. I'd forgotten all I'd known before this, and I had to re-learn all of my habits, and how to read every sign in life as a danger or a miracle.

I watched the Sun in fond memory as it slowly sunk to the horizon. I was out here to lock up but I couldn't help but watch. I still appreciated its beauty; it just meant something different now.

I shook myself out of my reverie as I turned to pull shut the stubborn doors, and locked the padlock so that it would be almost impossible to open. I slipped the rusty old key back into the pocket of my old cargo trousers. I wiped my grubby hand along my forhead as I walked backwards.


-Not Finished-

The End
