Michael gave me the nod and we hid behind the machine. The minute we heard the door open we switched it on. The blasting went on for thirty seconds. The bright light would fill your sight if you looked straight at it. After I looked at the ground and what we saw were black, skinny bones. “Sweet!” Michael and I said at the same time.
As we ran towards Clondalkin none of the famous landmarks were there, so we had no clue where we were until we saw our old primary school. We decided to have a scope around. My gut was telling me no, but I went inside. As we broke through the front door we saw our old Principal dead on the floor. Michael was saying “Yes! I hated how much homework he gave us!” and started kicking his corpse. I stepped in and told him “The man is dead, leave him alone.” We decided to flee but when we saw the clock hit 8 we knew we were dead. We grabbed hockey sticks from the P.E Hall and decided to fight.
Then I ran up the mountain, even though I’m not the fastest I outran them thanks to the boots, when I was high enough I opened fire. I’d killed a few but it was no good they would come back to life after this wave. But then, then I saw a female zombie, she looked almost the same as my mother. I dropped my gun suddenly. She leaped, she started biting the flesh off me. I screamed and shouted, WTF!!
I heard someone yell and next thing I knew, something was on my back. It clawed at my face and I struggled to get it off me. Eventually I threw myself backwards on the floor and whatever it was screamed on the impact and I ran into the closest door, grabbing my crowbar on the way. After a minute, I heard a quiet knocking.
Despite my better judgement I jumped out from behind the shelves, holding the gun up and aiming it at them, startled, the boy let go of the girl and all three of them backed away. The boy who grabbed the girl had dark hair while the other two had light hair. I motioned for the girl to go behind me and warily, she scrambled to her feet and ran behind me. I told them all to leave and the two light-haired ones immediately ran away but the one with dark hair spoke up,
My Uncle and I were looking around and I didn’t find anything interesting but suddenly my Uncle turned to me and gave me a box with blossoms over it. He shouted “Happy Birthday!” and handed it to me. I opened it and it was a ring. The ring was old but very beautiful as I put on the ring I look up to my Uncle to realise this isn’t an ordinary ring. I could see an x-ray of my Uncle. I immediately freaked because he was a zombie controlled by the government of America.
I found Sean eventually. The chap was sitting on a swing. His eyes were as red as the top of a cigarette, and he was shaking more than me after two espressos. I tried giving him a hug, he pushed me away. So I just stood there awkwardly. After five minute he decided to go home with me. God, he was a mess.
When I arrived i found a few people there and amongst them was a girl who looked at me and smiled. I smiled back at her as I didn’t want to be rude. I went over to the girl and started talking to her. She told me that she and the two other boys that came with her were part of a human group that are aiming to get rid of all the zombies and make Tallaght back to how it was before. I was very interested in the idea as I was getting sick and tired of living in this dark and depressing world. I asked if I could join the group and she said yes, of course. From that day I helped the group to kill zombies.
When we got to Tallaght, I was in shock from what I saw, there was nothing left, everything was burnt to the ground. Me and my brother got out of the car to look through the ash and rubble still in seeing distance of the car. We didn’t speak to each other when we were doing this, I think we were both in shock. We both decided to head back to the car when all of a sudden we hear the tyres skidding, both turning our heads at the same time we see the car speeding away.
