Defense with the BoomStick

(Disclaimer: This post is an ongoing story set in a world where zombies have taken over and people live in small spots all over the world. It was a weekly broadcast of news from around the globe and a tip to help survival, but now I have been bitten and partially cured now searching for a full vaccine).

You would think after a week I would have gotten out of here and escaped as far as possible from these asshats who captured me, but my understanding of their complex layout was way off. To say this place is huge is an understatement as after breaking out of the building they were holding me in as of last Friday, I found myself in some sprawling complex with numerous buildings, walls and fortifications all over.

Can’t say if this was a place that this group found or if it was built after the zombies hit, but either way it must have taken some work to get up and going. From the looks of what they've done to the place to make it more secure against zombies they couldn’t have done it on their own.

On that count I was right as when I broke free there were a few prisoners that broke out with me who filled me in on how these guys have been operating. This group was snatching up survivors and zombies alike to use as forced labor workers to expand and reinforce their place. They were using ropes on the zombies for lifting and pulling materials into place, by putting other prisoners in front of them to get the zombies to move in the direction they wanted.

The more messed up part is the other survivors were telling me sometimes they shoved a prisoner into the zombie line just to watch it happen. Now I've seen and heard some messed up things since the zombie attack started, but this is one of the worst sorts of acts I think could happen.

For me and the others who broke out we've been moving from building to building, hiding out the past few days with good success. We've been damn lucky about that evading capture, as that distraction I started a week ago with the zombies did not last long as this group is well organized and heavily armed. They managed to destroy all the loose zombies after only 5 hours of battle, leaving next to no time to find a way out of this complex, and now they've been hunting us down these past few days.

Our little group has put the last day or two to great use, scouting their walls to try to find weak spots to allow our escape. I think we've found a spot.

The plan is to get a hold of some explosives and blow a hole in this spot on their wall that has the longest opening without a patrol coming by. Getting the explosives is going to be the hard part and hopefully my broadcast next week will be as far away from here as possible- if there is a broadcast.

Until next week keep surviving like we are.
