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.)

I've finally made progress.

After what has felt like walking with no end in sight in the form of survivors, encampments or anything that would be different then what I've been through. So I said screw it and just found the next small town and plopped myself down in one the main street buildings. I made sure to mark that someone was there by leaving a fire or two burning in trash cans, trying to draw the people to me.

After a day or two I got no response at all. I figured maybe I needed to make more of a sign that someone was there, so I started to just break as much stuff as possible and light some houses on fire. Just as much mass destruction as I could manage. Found some full liquor bottles that became in handy as Molotov cocktails for that extra bit of mayhem and still nothing, which could mean a couple different things about my situation.

Maybe I'm just so far from where the other survivors of this on the wall are located or they just don’t have the capabilities to monitor all this anymore and just haven’t come across it yet on patrols. Worst case scenario is there are no more survivors located here.

Maybe they're all located underground with no access to the surface. This just keeps getting weirder and weirder the further I go along; I know someone has to be here because of all the guys they had on the wall when I was there. That was over two months ago I think and a lot can happen in that long a time. I just can’t figure out what would cause them to collapse that fast.

Not sure what step to take next. I guess I'm going to head for the wall see what I can find there. I have to believe there are survivors here somewhere or else why keep going? At times I kind of miss the zombies at least giving a bit of excitement, as I've found more meds to keep my own zombie side in check. Still need to take some aggression out and zombies are the perfect way to do that. Something has to give this week.
