I keep hearing the next big thing is going to be zombies. So I thought what the heck why not give it a shot? Perhaps I don’t have a talent for zombie drama, but here’s my attempt.
Babs lay face down on the pavement. Her warm blood flowing away from her like a river, carrying her life with it. She was helpless to do anything but watch. With a last shuttering gasp blackness enveloped her…
“Hey lady, you ok?”
The smell of vomit and cheap liquor stung her nose. Babs gagged. Perhaps she had cheated death after all. She pulled herself up. The ugly gapping wound was still there, but there was no blood. Her heart wasn’t beating. She wasn’t breathing.
“Oh geeze, not undead,” Babs said. “Anything but zombie. This is going to put a damper on my sex life. And the whole flesh eating thing. I’m a vegetarian for gosh sakes. This isn’t going to work for me,” she yelled to no one in particular.
