Hey, remember my semi-terrible short story? Well, I'm bringing it back for you guys. Unfortunately, when I posted it all onto the forum, I kept it in a notebook and since I moved, I haven't been able to find it. I have the first half on my computer now, but other than that, I don't have it saved anywhere. If anyone kept a copy, lemme know!
Anyway, here's the first part again. Do not steal for your own gain, blah blah blah, etc. let's go! Also, I placed people in Jenny's world, so that belongs to her and no one else. Team Fortress 2 belongs to Valve and everyone that I mention/control in this story are mine. So, if you're mentioned....well....I own your soul, guess I forgot to tell you that. c: Red Team:
She was running. It was all she had to do. She felt her feet pound on the hard asphalt, her chucks echoed in the streets. Her breaths were short, but she kept going. She felt the inside of her hat line with sweat. The bat got harder to hold; the sweat lingered on her hands. Her neck got chafed by the bag’s strap. She jumped over a few more cars before she finally landed on the sidewalk away from the streets. It was silent, empty. She stood there as she regained air in her lungs, but the air was hot and humid. She licked her dry lips as she dropped the bat onto the ground. The bat created a clunk sound as it echoed in the vacant streets, but she didn’t care. Her hands shook, she needed water, bad.
“Fax, come in,” the headset crackled. Fax jumped at the sound as it reverberated in her ears. She could already feel a headache coming.
“Loud and clear, Dahlia, what’s up?” Fax questioned as she looked around to find some water.
“Where the hell are you?”
Fax walked around to find a street sign or anything that would resemble where she was. She noticed the Capitol none too far away. Fax scratched the back of her head before she said: “9th and Independence. Southwest. Right by the Capitol. Vote me in, bitches.”
Fax could almost hear Dahlia roll her eyes. “We ain’t far.”
“What’s your ETA then?”
“Bout ten minutes. You gonna be okay out there, Fax?”
“I ain’t a scout for nothing, Dahlia, m’dear. See you in ten.”
The headset disconnected and Fax looked around for a store or something. She found a small shop not too far away, albeit ransacked; it didn’t hurt to look. The store was small. The once full shelves were empty and blood spattered all around. The cash register was torn open, but the money covered the ground. She went inside and heard the familiar hum. She smiled as she walked closer to a small fridge that was filled with various sodas and water bottles. She felt the fridge and felt that it was somewhat cool to the touch; a little warmer than room temperature. Fax opened the fridge and took out a water bottle. She downed half of the bottle before she splashed the rest on her face. She then took out two more bottles and placed them in her bag. She was about to grab one more when she heard shuffling. Fax closed the door and slowly walked toward the back room. She heard a groan as the zombie came closer. Fax reached for her baseball bat, but it was outside.
“Fuckin’ A,” Fax muttered as she slowly backed away from the zombie. The zombie groaned and shuffled closer. Fax looked behind her to see the entrance and she slowly made her way out. As soon as she made her way out, she turned around to see five more zombies on their way over. She looked around to see her baseball bat that glistened in the sun. She ran over to her fallen weapon, but the zombie from inside the store crawled out and grabbed at Fax. Fax turned to grab the zombie in the neck, but the two fell down and collided with the cement. Fax felt her right elbow slam on the hard cement and she swore out loud; she knew that her elbow was shattered. The zombie tried to bite at her neck, but she kept him at bay with her arm. She looked over to see her bat not too far away. Her headset was destroyed by the five zombies that walked towards the two. She tried to grab for her bat, but the zombie got closer to her face. “Fuck!”
She heard a crack, and watched as the zombie’s head explode. She closed her eyes as the infected blood splattered all over her face. She felt the body go limp and fall on top of her. Quickly, she pushed the body off of her and slowly stood up. She then looked up to see two more zombies fall to the ground with heads that also exploded. She then smelled gasoline. Hastily, she grabbed her bat from the ground and dove out of the way as the rest of the zombies went up into flames. Fax stared into the flames and she could have sworn that she could hear the zombies screaming. Fax sighed and bowed her head.
“What the hell are you doing?”
