“Ahhhh!” Michael screamed, stood against the garage wall and laid his face upon the cold stone.
“Don’t scream, man you will attract more,” Jacob replied.
“Don’t tell me what I already know!”
Jacob stood next to Michael. “Come on, please dude. If you lose it what the hell am I going to do.”
Michael sighed but stared at the back of the garage. He watched the undead remnants of a woman walk slowly past a window. The woman, no longer human, wore a white wedding dress smeared with darkness, likely blood. The sight infuriated Michael but he stood perfectly still overtly signaling to Jacob. Jacob saw the woman and noticed she stopped and stared into the window. It looked like the woman was curious. Was she wondering what was inside?
Both men stood statue-still watching as the woman rubbed a nasty hand over the thin glass window but within seconds she had covered the outside of the window in grim. A minute later she became bored and left.
Michael turned and fell to a sitting position. Tears fell and welled up for seconds upon the pronounced cheekbones of the 20 year old man. Jacob stood, silent then turned away struggling to hold back the emotion.
“We’ve been here two days!” Michael finally said. “I am hungry as hell. We can’t stay in here any longer. Jacob.” Michael wiped away the tears. “You are my best friend but if you try to stop me I will kill you.”
“What do you expect me to do, dude? Stand in your way. You are a big boy. I’m just telling you it will be much more painful out there then in here.”
“Starving to death isn’t painful?”
“I don’t know, man, I haven’t gone more than four hours without food. It feel like I’m starving now. I have very little energy to do anything. How are we going to fight what twenty of those things?”
“We have to do something.” Michael walked across the concrete floor and over to the wooden garage door.”
“I wish I could see through this damn door.”
Jacob stood behind him then banged hard on the door.
“What are you doing?”
Jacob was quiet and listened then said, “If they were close one of them would of smacked the door but it didn’t. We can try this. Just far enough to find a house with food.”
