Could you ever imagine waking up one day and everything was different? Not being able to be sprawled out in your perfectly good bed each morning, but waking up in various locations for protection. Having to carry some sort of weapon every time you go outside just in case you run into a pack of zombies looking for fresh flesh. This all seemed too much and it was only my first year at Missouri State. A zombie apocalypse was not something I expected from college, especially to be one of the few survivors’ left on campus. I was on my own and I needed to find the right supplies to stay alive. Missouri State’s campus was huge and I did not even know where to begin to look. I scavenged through all the buildings, looking for some essentials of what …show more content…
I had to prepare him for the journey we were about to embark on for the woods. We needed to get out of the city and find some food. As we made our way off campus, we ran into several packs of zombies and had to fight them off. I expected this but I do not think Steven did so he was mortified after we fought off the last pack. “I want to go home, I need my mommy, and you are not my mommy” Steven sniffled. I assured him that I was doing my best to get him home and that he would be with his mom in no time. We kept moving through down town and I had heard something in the distance. It sounded like a car, a running car that was driving right towards us. I started running towards the sound and saw the car parked in front of a gas station. I knew what I had to do so I jumped in the driver’s seat and told Steven to hop in and drove off towards the woods. As we were driving, one of the stores stuck out to me and I knew immediately what I needed to get Steven and I for some food. I parked the car and told Steven to come on, Steven looked confused but I told him to go look for dehydrated meals while I go look for an animal trap. Finally, I found the animal trap and called for Steven so we could go. This animal trap was going to help catch food for me to eat in woods while Steven eats the dehydrated meals. …show more content…

I then yanked the machete from my backpack and began to swing, all of a sudden I was down on the ground screaming. I heard gunshots and saw zombies falling one by one, who was this shooting? I got up after all the zombies were “dead”, because they cannot be any deader than they already were, and looked around for the shooter. I did not see anyone with a gun, until I noticed Steven standing in the doorway of the store with a machine gun. He was shaking when I ran up to him, “My daddy taught me how shoot” he stuttered. I hugged him tightly and then walked him to the car. Where we then drove out of the city and towards the woods, eventually we came upon a deserted camp ground. I rummaged through their stuff and found some flint and stone. When I found this I started a fire instantly to see if it would bring anyone here for help. This was essential for my survival because it brought me four things on this journey. It brought me warmth, light for when it eventually got dark, help finally came, and last but not least an escape where it was zombie free.
