Earth's Survivors Book One: Rising From The Ashes
Mr. Wendell G. Sweet
Earth's Survivors series takes an apocalyptic look at a world in ruins. The governments are gone. The police, the military. The United States is no more. The dead are rising. Becoming smarter, learning from their mistakes.
Our Group of survivors take a stand in a suburb of New York City called Old Town. Those that make it eventually find their way out of the city looking for a place to start over again. A place where they can began to put their lives in order once more...
We were down along the river checking over some of the old buildings that perched on the cliffs high above the water. Summer was coming on full and we knew we had to get moving, get out of this dead city. We had half the country to cross and find a place before winter came back around again.
I was thinking back to March. Just two months ago but the world was still the world. And for the next little while there, we didn't even know about the dead. Dead was still dead. When you closed your eyes for the long eternal sleep you didn't wake up a short minute later as something else. No. We were ignorant up until a few weeks ago when they decided to come after us. Ignorant. Stupid. Didn't know a thing: Have a clue. We didn't know what the blue stuff the government planes sprayed us with right after everything went to hell was. And I am still not convinced I know all there is to know, but I suspect things. I have been told things. I met a guy a few weeks back that said he worked at the Army base. He knew what it was. What I do know was it was designed to strengthen us. Keep us alive a little longer. Make us stronger somehow. Some scientist's idea.
I suppose it was meant as a help for us. A help. The world slowed down, fell apart, everything stopped working. They knew they couldn't get to us. We would die. So they sprayed the blue stuff on us. And I could suppose further that some of us survived the last few months because of it. I can't prove it but I suspect it did help us evolve into... I don't know.. Whatever the hell we are now. I know we're alive? I know our hearts beat. I still feel human and I truly think I am still human. If it made changes to the living they are very small changes... At least so far.
But the dead. Oh, the dead. That's a different story. It did something else to the dead.
