This is a beginning of a world with no limits but ones you set for yourself. Life usually seems like an endless cycle of repeated events this is a shatter in that chain, will they all survive, and every move may affect everyone’s future.
CHAPTER 1 The beginning
The sound of a chair smashing into a head which echoed throughout the area emerged from a cream coloured building bestowed the name Admin. The stench of rotting flesh filled the air and the growling of the undead drew closer to the Admin, attracted to the sound of chairs breaking skulls like a moth to fire.

Staring mindlessly at the deep red pool of blood gushing out of middle aged woman brew a cold thought in my senile mind,” I just murdered someone” I said to myself (shaking). I looked at Kay intensely, fear blazed in my unfocused eyes. Kay’s white T-shirt was stained immensely with blood shed by me. He immediately wiped of the blood on his light brown cheeks and when he noticed my disoriented face the said, "Dude I am okay, I am not turning anytime soon." I was paralysed by the fact that I murdered in cold blood, but Kay unconcerned was mind-boggled, “How the hell did this all happen in one night? “
3 hours earlier.
On a cold chilly morning there was no sign of the gong or annoying complaints of the ancient boarding master, this invoked curiosity to the young minds of the perverted dorm members. One of the dorm members, who weirdly enjoyed bathing early in the morning (as usual), trotted himself into the laundry/ showering area where he was met with a nasty surprise…
Staring blindly at the figure with a half-eaten leg he began sauntering backwards. He then tripped over a metal beam that stood upright and as it began to fall, his world fell into slow motion. Only touching the beam with the tips of his fingers it continued its fall onto the concrete floor with a loud clank sound which echoed throughout the laundry. He glared miserably at the dead body. The laundry was silent as the dead body ascended its head and showed its bloody infected eyes with grey veins. The boy turned around in an attempt to run but fate bit him in the ass (he tripped) .The dead no the undead body began to crawl towards him with increasing velocity. The boy desperately tried to crawl away but it grabbed onto his right leg and bit into it like butter, blood spewed everywhere in an action similar to a sprinkler.
The faint dying scream of the boy brought a cold chill down my spine and my dorm mates had that terrified look in their eyes, the boy kicked the crawler (I’m going to use the word crawlers for the undead) and dragged his bleeding body to the door of the dormitory. We looked at him while he was reaching out to us for help, but we just stared at him. A high pitched scream followed by a faint cry for help came from the boy bit by the crawler; we watched helplessly as his body was pulled back into the shadows by the crawler to its hideous jaws. A sensation of anger accompanied by fear and helplessness fueled me, I looked at Kay and saw the same look in his face. I crept towards the door to only see the crawler feasting on my fellow doom mate; I glared at the crawler’s eyes, its grey red veined eyes and on that very moment I could see that it was lifeless. When I was going back inside I closed the door and told the guys that we got to get outta here to a safe place. Kay said he had to test something, he grabbed a nearby shoe and threw it directly to the crawlers face and he hit the target but there was no reaction, he then picked up a pen with a metal casing and hit a nearby pole and the crawler rushed towards the pole (Kays theory was that the crawlers reacted to sound), he said he saw it on an anime he liked watching. We devised a plan that we would get to the classes and think of a proper plan to escape our situation. I told everyone to fit their food into their backpacks and to take any weapon that they could use to kill the crawlers; Kay said that they should be able to run in case anything goes wrong we could try fighting back. Everyone in the room decided to follow the plan, I got out through the window that had no glass first to check if everything was clear with a metal rod in my hand just in case shit got real, the outside was infested with crawlers from every corner but they seemed not to notice me, meaning that Kay’s theory was correct about the crawlers reacting to sound, I gave Kay a sign that it was clear and safe to come out but as they came out one of them tripped, pulling down the metal rod I was carrying with him on to the concrete slab…

I planned to be the last one to come out making sure everyone came out safely but everything went sideways when Tang fell and pulled Dz’s metal rod along with him onto the concrete slab. Everyone froze for about 3seconds as the crawlers began raising their heads and as they screamed towards our direction blood from the bodies they were feasting on spurted everywhere, it seemed that sound made them go into a frenzy. Dz screamed “RUUN!” and everyone began running for their lives to the gate, I shot through the window like an anime character. Outside was utter hell, each side I looked at was completely dreadful, bodies that were feasted on as far as the eye can see, I knew it was gonna be bad but not this bad my heart felt so heavy, a few of my roommates were unlucky and had been grabbed by some crawlers, when I forced my gaze to the path ahead only a handful of my roommates were running towards the gate. We continued running towards the gate with tears trickling down our cheeks. Someone screamed, “Shit! We are trapped”, the gate was locked then Tang suggested that we climb the gate, everyone had that “how could we be so stupid” expression. Whilst climbing the gate Dz’s leg was grabbed by a crawler and I froze for a sec but Dz desperate for life kicked it in the face before it was able to bite him and he said, “That was close…Don’t stop climbing!” I wondered how he could not be terrified by the fact that he was that close to being devoured but then I realised his hands were shacking and at that moment I understood that he was scared but he had to calm down or the situation would worsen and that would suck.
We hurriedly got over the gate and the moment our feet touched the ground we sprinted towards the class rooms. We locked the door so that we could catch our breath and figure out or next move. Colid said that we can’t just leave our friends to die in there and I replied, “I am sure you know there was no one left, it was just us and those goddamn man eating creatures.” Colid looked at me with despair, I could see that he was trying to say something but the words couldn’t come out, this reality is too painful to believe. I walked towards him and gave him a light pat on the shoulder and said, “We will make it, as long as we don’t give up on living.” Then Charles said, “What about the girls?” and Arnold annoyed by Charles’s statement replied, “We could barely save ourselves how are going to save the girls?” and Charles answered him saying, “You want us to live them to die out there!!” then out of the blue Dz said that he has a plan but it’s a long shot if we fail we could die, so is everyone in.
Dz said, “Kay you coming with me to get the bus keys in the office and the rest of you guys should go and secure the bus in the motor mechanics department but there is danger for you guys the most because you might have to kill some crawlers so you need some weapons.” Colid thought fast at that moment and began taking apart the tables to get the metal legs. Dz and I jogged towards the admin block in order to get the keys of the bus that were kept in the headmaster’s office, the main entrance was completely glass but it was locked worst part was that it had a set of burglar bars and lock but without hesitation I took a rock, aimed it at the pad lock and hit it as hard as I could but Dz said, “Stop!! You will attract crawlers.” and I glared at him and said, “We don’t have time or the others might die! We don’t have a choice.” Dz just froze for a few seconds and nodded his head. I continued pounding the lock and after 3 tries it gave out but we attracted all the crawlers within a 100 metre radius, I aggressively pushed the burglar bars out of the way and Dz broke the glass door with a rock and we rushed in. After getting inside we put back the bugler bar to keep the crawler that were outside off our backs, we cautiously rushed towards the headmaster’s door and after finding out it was locked we began to kick it open and after 12 tries the door banged open. After getting the keys from the top drawer of the table we had no choice but to find another way out cause the main entrance was infested with crawlers, the admin had a second floor so we jogged up the stairs and banged the door of the staff room open, we could see a balcony and I said, “Let’s get down from there.” but after a few steps we heard something, it seemed like we were not alone in the room, so when we turned our heads…
Dz and I grabbed the chairs nearby and faced the uninvited guest staggering towards us but whilst moving back so as to avoid contact Dz stumbled and the chair he was holding landed on to the table with a bang and the crawler reacted in an instant and it jumped towards me, I instinctively punched it in the jaw but that didn’t stop it rushing towards me, I tripped and it landed right on top of me I began wrestling with it to prevent it from biting me but it’s teeth dripping some liquid were so ever ready to bite through my flesh finally Dz snapping out of confusion took a chair and hit it continuously until it stopped moving and I said, “It took you long enough, what the f were you doing! I almost died.” but the looks on Dz face told volumes of fear and regret.

Back to Kay
Dz and I decided that we are going to climb down the drainage pipes of the Admin block which led to the back of the classroom block which had 3 crawlers lurking around. We began to slide down the pipes and when we landed, we tip toed around the crawlers when we looked forward we saw the computer lab and we looked and each other and shook our heads, it wasn’t worth the risk to get our laptops. We began to dash towards the motor mechanics department to meet up with the others. Dz said, “You think we can catch up with them before they get killed?” and I answered him saying, “Dude they are not stupid and they are way stronger than they look.” “Well some of them.” I muttered under my breath Dz didn’t hear me and he replied saying, “Hope your right.”

The guys and I decided that we were going to use the metal rods from the tables and chairs we had broken apart as weapons. When we got to the door of the MMD(motor mechanics department) we saw it wide open and we got in but things started to go sideways when we saw 7 crawlers roaming around the bus. There were only five of us and seven of them; we had no chance of beating them. Then Bhara said, “Guess we have no choice huh…We have to fight them.” but Colid said, “If we fight them we will die.” And Bhara replied saying, “Look at these facts if we don’t we will die and if we do there is a chance we will live plus if we survive we have a nice story to tell the chicks on how we saved them.” We looked at each other and everyone had a small fire lit up in their chests, each guy dashed toward their own zombie. Suddenly a loud cry for help was heard, it was Tang, two zombies had cornered him but they were taken out simultaneously by metal bats...
