Excerpt from story 1 - The Dead Inside
I was 11 nearly 12 when it happened, and what I still have no idea but only knowing I awoke to a new day of death. Everyone was dead, and I mean everyone, even my pet hamster, Tiffy. You can well imagine the distress of that initial day, finding my family not waking with me. I thought they were simply sleeping but they weren’t! I waited until 8:30 and believed they had just slept in being a weekend day. I was alerted when I turned on the TV to watch music video clips but the screen was just snow! So I turned it off and would ask Dad to fix it later, but he couldn’t, he was dead too! I finally gave in at 9:00 and went check on them with a fresh cup of tea each that I’d made to surprise them (with two slices of buttered toast). Mum’s opened mouth and the fear in her dead eyes made me drop the tray and I burnt my foot with the scalding liquid. I ran and shook her to wake her but she was dead and dead as Dad was. I stood there frozen looking at them wondering what at happened before my senses returned and I ran downstairs and would get help from Mr. Heckles next-door. I was banging hard on his front door when I saw him, lying there in his rose garden, with his mouth open like Mum’s. It was then I looked around and no one was on the streets. And I mean no one! I saw a car crashed into a lamp post and a body was slumped over the steering wheel so I ran as fast as I could to see if they were alright, but they weren’t! The family of four were all dead. I fell to my knees as the fear filled my tiny body, consuming my questions of why.
