These are the diaries of Steve, and what events took place on November 21st 2011...the day the world called Z-DAY!!!
A day that a deadly infection broke loose throughout the world, first affecting Southampton...Steve survived the pandemic, using what he had learned through films and games, he had managed to survive the zombie apocalypse..... Jesus knows how he did it, no rephrase that Jesus doesn’t know
It was your average normal summers day in beautiful England, Southampton...the heat was 23 degrees, the sun was hiding behind the dark, grey shadowy clouds which swept through the skies murking all form of brightness, so yeah, your average summers day here in Southampton.
Steve was a pretty normal guy, lived in a shit hole estate the council had deemed fit for living, it was the kind of place that people would show affection with injections and cheap white lightning alcohol, although saying this, it was a tight community based environment, most were on benefits, signing on the doll or were just homeless, sweet lovely Northam estate. Steve lived in this estate; located in a block typed building I believe which are called ''flats''. Steve was not claiming benefits however, he was just an average twenty year old working in Cardfacotry, trying to earn his way in life...he was however a loser, he had no friends and spent most of his time watching family guy, drawing stick men, reading comics and playing video games...a dull unfulfilled life yet a life some had to lead.
Diary- November 21st 2011
I was watching deadliest warrior and I suddenly got interrupted by a news flash. I tried changing the channel but I couldn’t escape the news. It was on every channel so it must be important so I decided to watch just to see if it was because if it wasn’t then I would write in and complain that I was in the middle of something very important and not in the mood to be disrupted. To be honest I would never of complained I would of probably forgotten to or in fact had no one to complain to as I listened to the headlines
''A farmer and his animals have been quarantined after discovering his flock of chickens has been diagnosed with the bird flu, soon to be followed by the pigs having symptoms which aimed towards the deadly swine flu. The two viruses have never been so close together and scientists are highly concerned that a possible mutation could take place''
So it kind of started with that, the two viruses mutated together only to attack humans in which case, once infecting the humans it would cause immediate death, only for the victim then to shoot back to life within 30-60 seconds, only the deceased/living infected individual is complete brain dead, thus attacking those who don't have the virus by savagely eating the facial area of ones...well ...er...face...however if you're lucky, the infected person may not eat you whole, they may just take a huge chunk out of your face then move on to the next victim, only then you will be diagnosed with the deadly virus, soon die, come back to life then repeat the whole process and eat people.
Pretty simple really.
It spread like jam on toast, mmm toast...I love toast, not a big fan on jam though...anyway where was I? oh yeah, it was all over the news and people were going crazy, the government called it the Z-STRAIN VIRUS-, some called it GAH, ZOMBIES!!!!! I call it crazy cannibalism...Of course I was scared at first, I had only imagine this type of thing from movies or video games, but then it hit me...I've watched and played so many zombie based survival games/films I should know how to survive at least I hope I do as film and games are different to real life so ill just have to readjust what I have watch to what is happening!!!!!
So I'm writing this diary for those who may need it, this should lead you to survival...if the pages are not completed then throw it away quick....I died... obviously...so good luck.
Right, I heard this on the news, looked out the window and it was...well it was hard to tell if the public here in northam estate were infected, I mean they all looked like zombies before any of this, however I am to take no chances...I grabbed my rucksack, packed in Dr.Pepper cans, my Nintendo DS, three games of my choice (Mario, Pokémon and How to cook) then for the food, tinned beans and rice pudding....I rushed to my kitchen, grabbed a knife, real chav like, packed some clean underwear and prepared to make my move...
WHERE? Where do I go? I need somewhere safe to hide while I wait for the military to show, now my flat aint that safe, bottom floor, anyone can come in...No literately the lock on my door is busted due to a police raid which lead to them apologising for getting the wrong house it was in fact my neighbours I have never liked them always a funny smell coming from there. Anyway I lack enough furniture to barricade myself in...but I had plenty of time, although hundreds were being infected as I write this, I knew I had time, the ''zombies'' are real slow, they walk towards you like brain dead elderly people, or drugged up people I face pretty much every day here in Northam estate so I had plenty of time to draw a plan.
