Zombiecide Short Story

Recently my wife, me and our friends played a game of zombiecide using all the sets. Which means a lot of zombies! ! My friend devised a game set up.  Two boards one a mall the other prison two players on each with a team of four survivors each trying too escape that board to get on the bigger board. On the bigger board there was a helicopter waiting with four spaces.  After that it may come back of we rolled a 6 at the end of a turn. If it did not arrive well you just fight to the last. I decided to try and be different by usibg what happened on the game to devise a short story.  Apologies of its not great but I thought id give it a shot.

a distant thump thump thump could be heard it got louder as the helicopter flew into the city hundreds of dead eyes watched as the helicopter flew overhead. A throng of shuffling corpses moved in the direction the helicopter went. A smaller number of scared tired and alive eyes peeked out of windows and Barricades blinking at the sun as the helicopter flew by a slim Glimmer of Hope kindled as the helicopter flew overhead which was crushed when they heard the message from the helicopters PA system “any survivors out there this city is to be targeted with a low yield nuclear weapon to eradicate the biohazards the last helicopter will be at the helipad to pick up any survivors that make it there buy 1600 hours tomorrow if you can't don't make it get deep and God save you” the helicopter repeated this a few times as it circled before It flew out of the city. In barricaded apartments office buildings warehouses and basements groups of survivors gathered their packs,weapons and with grim determination headed out….
Dan turned to the others in the room,

“you heard the helicopter.  We need to leave now”

“let's go then” Elsa said cocking her pistol.  They could hear movement from the room next door.

Other survivors Dan the firefighter thought, he gripped his fire axe and opened the door.  Travis piled past into the corridor crow bar  at the ready. Shannon and Elsa went through nervously checking the shadows.  As they came out 4 more survivors appeared.

“hey,you hear the helicopter? “ Dan asked,

“Yeah that's where we're heading don't wanna get nuked, let's stick together for a better chance that way. I'm Oksana”  replied a woman that looked like Alice from the Resident evil films.

“Sounds good let's get the hell out of here” Dan said.  He smashed through a door into another shop, as he looked around a zombie grabbed him, he missed with his axe and the zombie bit him

“Ahhh “ he yelled the pain sprang through his arm.  An axe  suddenly appeared swinging into the zombies face.  The foul creature collapsed and Dan turned to see a girl pull the axe out of the zombies head.  She looked exactly like Amy from Big Bang Theory,

“ hey I'm Audrey”

“Thank you Am...Audrey I mean you saved my life then” Dan said, Travis walked past into the room and started rummaging.  

“God damn!” He yelled holding an automatic shotgun in the air. Dan searched round the room and found under the body of a security guard a Mac -10 SMG.

“Sweet!”Dan smiled.

A low moan could be heard from outside.  Shannon went and looked outside of the mall “what the fu…..” She turned to Dan face drained of colour.

“There's an abomination out there! !!!”

Dan punched the wall they all wouldn't  make it before the abomination gets them.

“zombies! Down the hall. Damn ha ha ha this one's Santa Claus! ! he's mine “ Travis yelled,his shotgun boomed and the zombie exploded on a hail of shotgun shells.

“we need to go now! “ Shannon yelled. She ran out into the street and off down the road with another survivor Dan didn't recognise and disappeared round the corner.  Dan stepped outside and saw the face of hell bearing down towards him.  Travis looked outside “well we ain't going that way! Everyone back inside! “ the group headed back inside the mall.  Dan checked the mall map “right round there, we can head  to the other exit. Hopefully that thing will follow us through and not cut us off.”

“They are big and scary but they sure are dumb” Travis laughed.

The group headed off through the mall only encountering a few zombies.  They got to the next exit and peeked out.  Elsa giggled I swear there is Elvis and princess Leia out there? “ everyone crowded to look.  Outside in the road was indeed an Elvis shuffling along next to a princess Leia who looked the spitting image of the star wars character except for bite marks over her arm. “let's say hello! “ Oksana said. She threw the doors open and along with Travis opened fire with their shotguns reducing the zombies to chunks.  Elsa ran forward and shouted back

“got a car! ! And this! !” she waved a golden AK 47. What the hell kind of car had she found?  Dan thought. As the group  left Oksana smashed a parking machine, she grinned evil as she poured the spare change into the shotgun barrel “little trick I learnt”.

The group went over Elsa  who was sat in a Cadillac convertible, Leopard print interior and bull horns on the front. “That's a pimp wagon!” Audrey  said shocked.

“stop complaining and get in” Elsa shouted. The group all jumped on the car all except Travis. “I ain't crowding in there I'll walk. Travis strode off followed by the car, in the distance they heard the abomination smashing its way through the mall.

The band of survivors arrived in the city centre where a helicopter was waiting at the helipad. Hope spares!! The group headed towards the helicopter.  Dan spotted Shannon climbing into the helicopter “nice of her to wait!” another group of survivors could be seen heading from the prison.  The pilot was waiting.  “I got room for 4! With the lady here that's 3. “

Dan grimaced the helicopter forgot to mention a numbers limit!!.
