Post Reply The City
Posted 7/9/13

This is the city where you live, and you head here from wherever you were, curious to see what has happened.

Scarlet sat in a table in front of one of the windows on the library's second floor, looking out down at the people. They were all running in different directions. On a normal business day, this would seem normal, people running to and from, but this was... different in a way she couldn't explain it. Like something was wrong. With her elbow on the table and head in her hand, Scarlet watched the people run, the sounds inaudible because of the windows.

Takumi, who was sitting 2 tables down from Scarlet, also noticed the disturbance outside. Why? In the one place where he sought peace and quiet why did he have to be disturbed by the people outside? He decided to try and ignore the people running frantically outside. As he was turning back to his book he exchanged glances with Scarlet. Attempting to avoid conversation, like usual, Takumi quickly looked down into his book and resumed reading.

Scarlet turned away from the window to find a guy sitting a couple of tables away from her. She raised an eyebrow when he looked at her, but he looked away and went back to reading his book. She turned back to the window and saw something strange, thinking her eyes were deceiving her, but when she looked closer she mentally freaked. I-is that what I think it is...? She stood up and walked to closer to the window and her eyes widened. It is! People were running because there were zombies chasing after them. "And i only thought that was in movies...", she muttered. She backed away from the window and went to pick up her bag.

As the girl who sat two tables down jumped out of her seat she startled Takumi into yet again putting down his book. As she began to stumble backwards to her backpack Takumi stood up as well, curious as to why the girl had been acting so strangely. He looked out the window and his eyes widened to the sight of zombies chasing people. He was dumbfounded, unable to move from the place where he was. As he stood there, watching what was happening he was shocked out of his daze by a gut wrenching scream from a woman who seemed to be in her mid 30's. He quickly glanced in the direction of the yell only to see three zombies tearing this woman limb from limb and then gnawing away at her flesh. His stomach immediately began to react but before he could puke he held it down. The one and only thought that went through his head after that was Elise, the girl who had been so kind to him through his tough times. She needed to be alright, without her his life would be meaningless, she was all he had. He turned to the girl who was still behind him and said "We need to get out of here and find somewhere safe, now, before they come for us too."

Startled, Scarlet looked up at the guy and raised an eyebrow, thinking. My choices are being eaten by zombies or going somewhere with a strange man I just met. The choice is clear. "U-um okay…" Scarlet picked up her backpack and slung it over her shoulder. "I'm Scarlet." She glanced up at the guy. "Where exactly are we going to go to?"

Takumi, shocked, yet somewhat happy about Scarlet's response then replied "Well our best option right now would be to find a safe place with food, water, and weapons. But the challenging part will be getting to that place... We need to find a car, or else we will just be eaten by the horde of zombies right outside this building." Takumi then ran over to the staircase and turned to Scarlet "First things first though, we need to find anything usable as a weapon in this place, lucky for you I know how to hot wire a car so keys won't be necesarry." As they both went down the stairs he muttered "I'm Takumi by the way."

"It's nice too meet you, under this haunting circumstances," Scarlet said as she followed Takumi down the stairs. "We could just steal the food and water, you know. But our main concern should be weapons. I've got a beautiful machine gun at home...", she added to herself. Scarlet stopped and looked around. "I'm surprised they didn't turn off the power."

When they reached the bottom of the steps Takumi yelled out to Scarlet "Well that would certainly come in handy, plus i'm sure you have some family there that you'd like to take along" as he raced over to the Librarian desk and sorted through all of the items underneath. All that was under there was a bunch of paper work, old books, and mace. He picked up the mace and whispered to himself "Well this won't be of any use against zombies" but he put it in his pocket anyways. And then, as he was getting up to leave his eyes passed over a shiny object that caught his attention. "Perfect" Takumi said as he walked over to it. He proceeded to punch open a glass case that contained a fire axe in case of emergencies. He then turned to Scarlet and said "Come on! Let's get the hell out of here!"

Scarlet thought for a moment, then frowned shaking her head. "No... Just the gun I need to take." Scarlet looked around for something that she could use as a weapon, but found nothing. "This blows," she turned and followed Tamuki. "My house isn't far from here! We can stop by so I can get some stuff, right?" She ran up besides him, making an effort to keep up.

Takumi replied "Of course! If we can get that gun our chance of survival will sky rocket. You're house will be our first destination. But after that I will need to make some stops of my own." He handed over the axe to Scarlet as they approached the door "Here you need this more than I do." He said as he put his hand on the door knob and took a deep breath "Ready?"

Scarlet gave him a 'Whats that supposed to mean' look but gratefully took the axe. She looked at the door, heart pounding faster than she thought it ever could, and looked up at Takumi. "This is as ready as I'm going to get." Then, "Lets try to stick together, kay?"

Takumi nodded and tried to conceal his nervousness as best as he could. He looked at Scarlet and then began to count down from three "Three... Two... One." and proceeded to open the door and dash out to the chaotic world on the other side with Scarlet right behind him.

Scarlet ran out behind Takumi and looked around. "I-it's not that bad… we can make it... Right...?"

Takumi looked out into the crowd of both humans and zombies. "It looks like we should be okay as long as we get going now...There aren't that many of them yet so we should be safe." He then pointed out a gray mini-van parked about 2 blocks down the road from them and began to run towards it.
