out loud. He slowed as he got to the town squrae. Looking back and forth the hairs on his arms came up. He saw nothing, just buildings no biters, no humans, hell he didn’t even see a stray dog or any birds. To him it was if he’d landed in an old Twilight Zone show.Pulling into a gas station he grabbed his crossbow and got out. Thinking he might be able to get some gas out of the pumps. walking up to the broken garage door he stepped through and found the switch box for the pumps flipping it up he watched as the lights came on the pumps in the drive. “Sweeeeeeet,” He moved to the inside of the station and hit the button that cleared and reset the pumps then activated the one by his van. Going back out he pulled the handle and flipped up the lever and began filling the van. Charlie walked around a little, listening for anything at all. He heard only the wind. He topped off the tank and simply hung the pump back up, “there anybody else wants gas it’ll be ready for them.” He started to get in when he heard a thump. Listening careful it started coming harder and louder. Charlie looked across the lot to a church two doors down. The noise was coming from the door. Charlie walked down the street crossbow at the ready his eyes widened when he got to the steps of the church. A large steel bar had been placed across the door and padlocked down. Written in blood on the door, “Open at your own risk ALL DEAD INSIDE.” Charlie scanned the area for any signs of who might have locked up the biters.As he walked around he saw a badge in the bushes. It was a government badge with big yellow letters on it. CDC. Charlie picked it up and then noticed it had dried blood on the back. He turned it over several times looking at it carefully then placed it in his shirt pocket. The Biters inside the church had reached a highly agitated state. They were pounding furiously on the doors now. Charlie backed away and walked back to the van. Getting in he took out a small baggie from a box and placed the badge in it then washed his hands with purell. Starting the van he pulled out and continued down the street. Every church he came to it was the same thing, bars on the doors with the warning outside. As he reached the edge of town something bright caught his eye. Not on the ground but up in the sky. He kept trying to see what is was but it was out of view, only a flicker of bright reflection kept bouncing off the dash. Charlie finally pulled over and opened the door looking up he knew what it was. Three military helicopters were headed straight for him. Jumping back in he closed the door and ducked down. The lead helicopter flew right over him and turned around coming back it hovered over the van moving around as the pilot was looking for signs of life. Charlie didn’t move he laid in the back praying they would just move on.The helicopter pulled up and rejoined the group as they headed back west. It was only a minute and the rockets were fired. Charlie watched out the back window as the peaceful town went up in flames. A large explosion rocked one of the helicopters and he watched as the pilot almost lost control. “That one hit the gas station he was just at,” he thought. Charlie didn’t dare move he could only hope that they would finish what they came to do and then move on. It seemed like an hour but was only ten minutes. The three helicopters flew back over the van and headed back east. Charlie stayed down till he was sure they were gone. Getting out he looked back to the town. The smoke and flames burned bright against the sky, to Charlie it looked like they had torched the whole town. “Humansville my ass,” he said to himself as he got back in and started the van.Looking at his Atlas he figured the helicopters came from Ft Leonard Wood. Scanning it he opted to begin heading south once more, he knew had to stay off any main highway now figuring there would be roving patrols. He didn’t trust the government now, he thought their whole plan was to annihilate everything. Turning off on a county road he began to drive southeast. Any town he came to he looked on the map and the road signs and began to figure out how to take gravel roads around them. He came upon an interstate and found a service road that ran under it. He drove for five hours, stopping for water breaks and to check his map. He sighed a little as he realized he had gotten past Ft Leonard Wood and it was now north and behind him. There had been no more signs of planes or helicopters. Charlie had passed a sign that welcomed him to Mark Twain National Forest and was now looking at sign that said Elephant State park. The bar across the road was held by a simple padlock on a chain. Charlie figured if it was locked it had been done by the last person to leave. Getting out the bolt cutters he snapped the lock and pushed the bar back. Driving through he stopped and placed the bar back across and dummy locked it with the broken padlock. Driving back he found a spot completely covered with trees and had a restroom with showers. Getting out he grabbed the old weed cutter and began to cut some of the lower branches, taking them and throwing them on top of the van. When he was sure he had covered it enough he took the crossbow and opened the shower room door. Flipping the switch there was no power, “Damn,” he said as it echoed through the room Turning on the water it was cold but it was clean. Charlie walked back and locked the door then stripped and climbed in. The water was cold but it felt good as he washed the dirt and grime off of himself. He took a quick shower and turned the water off. Gathering his clothes he unlocked the door and stepped out The sun was setting but it felt warm as it shone through the trees on his naked body. Charlie took only two steps before he realized he was not alone. A voice spoke low and firm, “Well hello cupcake, You wanna drop the cross bow.”
