Day to Die

June 1st, 2017 at 4:16am

This is fucking insane.

My dad woke me up about an hour ago. He said a friend called him, telling him to turn on the news. After he saw what was happening, he woke me and my mother up. We’ve been crowed around the TV ever since. They are as weirded out as I am. I had to tear myself away from the TV to write all this crap down.

Here’s what’s going on…as far as I can understand…

Um…People stopped dying. They showed this guy on his deathbed…they showed him pass…He started bleeding from his eyes…Then his eyes opened…He jumped up, latched onto his daughter and basically ripped out her throat…

…They’re zombies…

The sun just rose…

It’s spreading quickly. Every time someone dies…they become one. It doesn’t matter how they die. This one guy on the news went crazy and shot five people. They all died…then got up and started chasing the guy that shot them. I don’t know what happened after that, because the camera guy went down.

The news stations started saying that they are boarding up their stations so they can continue to broadcast everything that is going on. One of the local stations is already out.

My mom just screamed…I’ll be right back.

June 1st, 2017 at 8:17am

The neighborhood has it. My parents finished boarding up everything then the neighbors started wailing on the house. You can see everything that’s going on through the slivers between the wood…but there’s no way they’re getting in…they did a good job with the boarding. Anyway, that’s why my mom was screaming…Mr. Anderson was scratching at the window. My mom use to date him before dad. But anyway, he let off the scream we’ve been hearing on the news…but it’s worse in person. It’s sounds like a person underwater trying to scream for dear life.

…It’s horrible…

I can’t believe this is happening…

The networks are agreeing that about 8 percentof the world has it. That’s about half a billion. They keep talking about all these weird equations and algorithms to figure out how long it will take till it’s everywhere…I don’t really understand it…and it’s scaring me.

They’re saying that by midnight tonight everyone who is not in a secure location will have it. That’s about 80-90 percent. God I hope we’re secure.

…5 billion zombies walking the Earth…

FUCK! It’s been four hours! How the Hell is this happening? I need to call some people.

June 1st, 2017 at 8:30am

The phone lines are working. It’s weird. The only things the zombies are attacking are people. The stupid movies got it all wrong. They’re not all disastrous to the world. They’re not stumbling while they fucking walk. And everything happening a Hell of a lot faster then they make it out to be. No one’s even going to be left to document this shit.

There’s a lot of fires and explosions and crap on the news…but they’re showing that that type of stuff is only being done by humans…the zombies have nothing to do with it.

Laura hasn’t answered the phone for ten minutes…And now Amanda’s not answering either.


June 1st, 2017 at 9:36am

The government has the idea of setting up safe cities with completely secure boarders and who throw out those who are about to die. But they won’t tell us where they’re going to fucking set them up.

Damn government.

June 1st, 2017 at 10:02am

13 percent infected.

We now have proof that no one is safe…the pope has it.

June 1st, 2017 at 10:26am

I need to write this out just in case anything happens.

Amanda and Laura: You two are the best of friends. I wouldn’t have made it through all these years without you two. I love you guys.

Mom and Dad: I know I piss you guys off a lot, but I couldn’t wish for better parents.

I’m sorry it’s too short…I can’t really think that much right now…everything’s….you know…

June 1st, 2017 at 11:45am

21 percent infected.

You can see dozens of them walking down the street…screaming and moaning these horrible things that just make you want to rip out your ears.

…I just want them to go away…

…I need to wake up now…

…I need to wake up now…

…The cow is staring at me…

June 1st, 2017 at 3:15pm

My parents found me in my room. I fainted. I guess that’s what no sleep, no food, and the stress of an upcoming does to you.

I still haven’t heard from Amanda or Laura. I guess I should just assume the worst.

Oh…35 percent infected.

June 1st, 2017 at 3:55pm

Fox News was just overrun…It was a bias news station anyway.

June 1st, 2017 at 5:16pm

I’ve been too glued to the TV to continue writing. The pictures they’re showing are awful.

New projections in…90 percent by midnight.

55 percent infected now…we’re now part of the minority.

June 1st, 2017 at 5:50pm

Oh my god…

Oh my god…

Oh my god…

Laura is scratching at my window…

Oh my god…

Oh my god…

Oh my god…

A news report came in talking about a scientist who found some potion that will keep you alive forever…no matter what. They’re only giving to world leaders.


June 1st, 2017 at 7:11pm

66 percent infected.

Religious leaders are starting to say all of this is happening because of that potion. They’re talking about an age-old manuscript they found about an agreement between Heaven and Hell. They say the potion broke the agreement and we have to live with the consequences.

Our road is getting crowded.

June 1st, 2017 at 8:49pm

77 percent infected.

I’m going to die…why?…I’ve never had that perfect kiss…I’m only 15…I’ve never had sex…I’ve never jumped out of an airplane.

…No die…

…No die…

June 1st, 2017 at 10:11pm

87 percent…Everything is gone…Why?

June 1st, 2017 at 11:01pm

93 percent…They readjusted the numbers to hit 99 percent by midnight. Even secure areas are being hit hard.

June 1st, 2017 at 11:35pm

96 percent…our house is surrounded.

June 1st, 2017 at 11:47pm

97 percent…They broke through the chimney.

…We’re in my room now…

…They’re going to get through…

June 1st, 2017 at 11:59pm

99 percent…Goodbye…I love you all…

June 2nd, 2017 at 12:01am

This is awesome. I am now part of the Zombie Liberation Front. Soon this world will be perfect after we inherit it all from the ignorant humans. Will you like to join me on my quest?
