[Other] Undead Pandemic: Act I - Viral [Entries Closed]
#1
An unknown virus. Idiopathic origin. Inevitable fatality upon infection. Just a short list of the descriptions for the unexplained virus working its way through people in underdeveloped nations, but the CDC, WHO, governments and news agencies assured the people that it would never reach developed nations. Which is exactly what the virus did. It remained isolated to locations where hygiene wasn't a concern or resources were sparse. Unfortunately,this virus did not stay isolated for very long but it was hidden. Relegated to common viruses...

I was on my lunch break. I popped open CNN to watch some news while on break. Naturally, the top story was that unexplained virus in the third world. I figured it was going to be like Ebola. Appears, kills some people and goes away. "Weird shit," I said to myself while the news anchor went on about the new outbreaks hitting in Rwanda, the Congo and down in Colombia. Didn't look pretty but neither did any virus really. I shrugged as they moved on to another story. I hoped that never made it to the United States. Would really suck if that hit this country. I shrugged again and went back to YouTube.

The bell rang as another order was put up. It was a fairly normal day in the café today, and Yuu was going about her normal routine. She was always trusted with Section C, the most busy section of the facility, due to her outstanding performance-- especially for only being a hundred centimetres tall. As she waited a table, she noticed CTV talking about the virus epidemic in third world countries again in one of the televisions in the building. She shrugged it off, as Canada was pretty far from a third world country. She had more important things to worry about, like waiting tables and studying for her Psychology test next Thursday. Her lunch break was soon, so maybe she could study for it then... or watch YouTube, as she normally does while eating her usual homemade chicken sandwich.

As Joey waits for the order he attached for the café, he can't help but to over hear the CTV going off about some Third World disease, whatever it could be this time. He sits down nearby and waits for his order, quickly going on his phone and reviewing just before he has to get to school for after lunch.

"Hike!" The coach says and in a flash, Jamie runs against the defensive line with the ball. He begins watching his sides, making sure he can sprint all the way, before noticing the guy in front of him. "AH SHIT!" He says as he pushes into the guy, tumbling along with him. He hears the referee's whistle before getting up and glaring at the guy he bumped into. "Next time you get in my way, it's your head that's flying off." He cleans off the grass off of him and sighs. "A few more days of this trash, then we'll have the big game.. And my name will be shining in all of its glory, right there in the school's hall of fame."

' 13:00 , the target should be rolling into his house right about now. ' Red says to himself. He glances into his scope from a nearby tree and watches as a car rolls into the house. He breathes in and aims his sights on him and waits for the right moment. '3.. 2.. 1..' as he shoots a small, unnoticeable dart into the target's back. with a slight grin, he silently gets out of the tree and begins to move on. He goes into his car and waits for a moment before hearing a beeping going off, indicating that the target is deceased. He quickly types to his client, 'Target is Dead. Have a nice day, ma'am.' Afterwords, driving off back to his home. Another mission successful.
I will write my legacy with this pen and paper.

With a large sigh the day ended early for Ace. She stretched happily and and started to re-organize her black jack table as the last of the gamblers left either heavily elated at a winning streak or darkly grumbling at a loosing one. Just another day at work, and just another day as a black jack dealer. Of course this wasn't another day. Ace smiled to herself making sure to quickly clean up so she could check out, tonight she would finish packing her luggage and finally get on that great american road trip she had been planning with Davis for the past few months, and by tomorrow the would head east towards the Midwest. Ace finished up cleaning her station reached for the remote to turn off the television wall closest to her with great satisfaction as all it did today was drone on and on about some disease spreading across third world countries. Ace hummed happily as the television wall went silent and she quietly strolled out towards the entrance where she checked out with her boss then quickly got into her car and started the drive home.

Davis was on camera duty today. Nothing special and it was one of those days when he had almost nothing to do. Instead to pass the time as the clock ticked slowly onwards he quietly switched from watching the security camera footage from one wall of screens and watching the news on another wall of screens. Of course all that was in the news today was more on the strange disease spreading across third world countries around the globe. Then with a loud ringing sound Davis stretched slightly getting up. He had arranged for his shift to end early today on the fact that by this time tomorrow he would be driving west with his friend Ace. Davis smiled slightly looking forward to a nice long vacation and quickly changed out of his mall security uniform into his street clothes. Davis quickly undid his gun belt and laid it in his bag before checking out with his manager. Davis walked into the employee parking lot, got into his truck, and started his drive home.

While the unexplained virus rampaged through villages and decaying towns, the chances of it spreading seemed remote. However, when the CDC, WHO and every other medical organization worldwide tried to study the virus, little was discovered. At first, it appeared to be similar to viruses like Ebola but the mortality rate was inevitable. Everyone who contracted the virus... eventually perished. The symptoms mimicked those of Ebola in the early stages: exhaustion, fever, weakness, pain. Complications eventually led to severe bleeding into the skin and brain with the core body temperature eventually dropping until it was impossible for the body to sustain function.

Reports began to surface about the corpses reanimating then, somehow, attacking the nurses still milling about. Quarantine soon became the process for treatment, of which there wasn't any. However, the reports of reanimation were unsubstantiated. Nor were the reports of the virus hitting the United States and creeping into Europe. Unfortunately... those reports were accurate but nobody heeded the warnings...
