Defense With the BoomStick

(Disclaimer: This post is an ongoing story set in a world where zombies have taken over and people are fighting to survive anyway they can. Originally it was a post of news and tips to help survivors make it one more day alive, but now it has became a story of my fight after being bitten and partially cured to walk as a half-zombie among them.)

Glad to be back on the boat and away from the shore. Supplies were found among the houses and stores.

There was trouble in the buildings too, between the zombies and survivors looking to claim our gear for their own. It was a running battle for two days between me and their band of survivors, with zombies at times helping and other times hurting my cause. The other guy with me was with the boat offshore to make sure we didn’t lose our means of escape to zombie attack or any survivors that aimed to steal it.

While we were offshore watching for activity it seemed they were watching us waiting to strike. When I got to shore and after the boat pulled back out to the sea they attacked me, thinking I would run for the boat and bring it closer so they could steal it. I wasn’t having any of that and attacked them with a head-on charge.

All they had were melee weapons since ammo was a very scarce thing to find and--unfortunately for them--I am still had a hearty supply and put it to good use. Took out a few in that first encounter, scattering the rest and allowed me a chance to break free towards a house to survey the area.

They didn’t stick around long to try and get at me as a bunch of zombies came through the streets and chased them off. This gave me a chance to search the house I was in and a few more nearby as well and gather up what supplies I could. It wasn’t much as those other survivors must have scavenged all of these buildings, forcing me to choose to either head back to the boat with what I had or search them out and take what they had. Figured it was fair game since they attacked me and were after my supplies, so I followed the zombies out of town thinking they would lead me to the survivor’s camp.

This is the help the zombies provided, leading me to their camp that was in an abandoned lighthouse surrounded by a wall of wooden spikes, ancient times style. I was kind of impressed as when zombies amassed on the walls they could reach over and stab them through the head with handmade spears. Although with the all the zombies being riled up it had their entire group on edge for the days.

I was watching them, waiting for my chance to strike and get their supplies. When night came I nabbed some of their sentries and turned them into zombies quickly (for once me being half-zombie comes in handy) and I let them loose inside their camp. With the perfect distraction I slaughtered them all--no quarter for any of them.

They didn’t have much in the way of ammo, but man did they have food stuffs and medicine. Enough to last us for months. Just damn tired from the fighting and loading of the supplies. Don’t like to let the zombie side take over, but I didn’t see any other way to get what we needed. Rest, need rest…
