Reepicheep continued to run through the tall grass. As much as he wanted to give the zombies a show of bravado before he took them out, he grudgingly accepted the element of surprise. The lead zombie looked dumbly at the moving grass approaching it as Reepicheep ran past the zombie, severing its left Achille's heel. The zombie went down and, with a battle cry, Reepicheep brought his sword down diagonally on the zombie's head. Only two zombies left, both heading towards Vorn.

As the first zombie approached Vorn slashed his katana in a diagonal upward cut to his left, severing the zombieís right leg at the hip. As the zombie began falling he made a backward horizontal cut, cleanly decapitating the zombie. Sidestepping backwards and to the right he dodged a lumbering attack by the second zombie. Vorn then made a horizontal cut severing off the zombieís head. Assuming a defensive stance he surveyed the area for more threats.

Caedus!

He was fighting desperately for his life, but the zombie was starting to win and Vorn was too far away to get there in time...

The biter at his throat, Caedus planted his knife in the thing's stomach over and over, cutting it to pieces in the torso, but it kept coming. In the corner of his eye he could see Vorn trying to help, but he wouldn't make it...

At the sound of Vorn's voice, Padme whirled on the spot, ducking as she did to avoid a clawing hand. Seeing Caedus' peril, she raised her pistol, trying desperately to find a shot that would take out the zombie without risking him. Finally drawing a bead on the thing's head, she squeezed the trigger.....the sound of the shot mixing with her yelp of surprise an instant later when her left foot was yanked out from underneath her. One of the Undead, too mangled to stand, grasped her ankle, dragging her toward its bloody, hissing mouth....

Vorn saw a geyser of blood come from the zombie that was attacking Caedus. The head was still largely intact, except for the back part that attached to the spinal column which was now primarily gone. Padme had disappeared into the brush though the frantic movement in the grass made it plainly obvious where she was. Adjusting his course he ran to the patch of rustling grass.

The entire bottom half of the zombie was missing, probably blown away by an explosive weapon from a SWAT or National Guard unit. Letís hope those guys are still humans... Vorn thought as he slashed his blade to sever the zombieís arm at the elbow and then used his momentum to deliver a swift kick to knock the body back. In less than a second Reep was on the scene, his plate armor now spattered in blood. The zombie, recovered from the surprise of Vornís kick, was now dragging itself back towards them. Mixed with its blank, lifeless stare was the look of savage insatiable hunger and the sight of food propelled it forward with the motivation of a starved animal as a thick puss colored saliva dribbled from its mouth Reep! Kill it!

Now was the time.

Peering down from up high like a guardian angel, the sky opened up with the sound of thunder. A bolt shot through the air, faster than the speed of sound. No jagged lightning bolt, but a super hot, copper jacketed chunk of lead spiraling through the air.

The projectile easily entered the zombie's head. The soft flesh blew out from the concussive force, smacking against the inside of the skull, and spraying out the exit wound.

The lifeless body slumped to the ground, no longer a threat to Padme. The undead now dead again.

Without relishing the precision of the shot, Skuldren automatically pulled back the bolt and loaded a fresh round, his eyes seeking out another target.

Padme scrambled to her feet, careful with placing weight on her left foot. It seemed only slightly twisted, something she could walk off. She glanced up in the direction of the shot that had come from above, tossing off a jaunty salute. Thanks she said quickly in Vorn's direction, also sparing a nod to Reepicheep even as she unslung her rifle and dashed atop a slight rise in the landscape. The sounds of the other's efforts to destroy the remaining Undead behind echoing in her ears, she strained to see over the glare of the sun. C'mon, c'mon, I know you're out there, I know you things think. Sure enough, she spotted a lone zombie loping off into the distance, off to communicate the presence of fresh meat, no doubt. If it escaped, the cantina would soon be besieged by the horrors. She took careful aim and fired a single shot. The creature dropped ungracefully to the ground. Pulling out one of her pistols once again, she turned to check on the progress of her comrades.

Vorn stabbed his sword down, a finishing blow just to make sure the zombie stayed dead. He heard a shot ring out and looked up at the bluff where Padme was slinging her rifle across her back. I donít know about you but I donít like running into zombie police this far out. At least one of the outermost check points mustíve already been overrun. Vorn said as he snapped off a large leaf from a tree which he used to wipe the blade of his katana off before sheathing it.

The scout team looked to be okay now with their immediate vicinity secured. Skuldren swept his rifle from the outskirts to the edge of town. There wasn't any movement. No alert zombies swarming towards the commotion.

Something about that lack of response disturbed him.

"Somethings not right. These things are suppose to be dumb. You show them food and they come running. With all that noise you'd think the whole town would be swarming after them."

Skuldren pulled his eye out of the scope and glanced over at Life.

The Brit shrugged. "Maybe they're not dumb."

Not dumb. Skuldren shivered. The only thing worse than a fast zombie would be a smart one.

He glanced back through his scope and looked for trouble. His instincts were telling him to watch the shadows. A tiny voice was yelling 'trap!' and 'ambush!'

Caedus was scarred by his attack. His nerves rattled, he cleaned and sheathed his knives. The quiet after the fight was unsettling, and he felt he needed to get back into a fight. IT wouldn't be long, he knew they were still out there.

Are we heading to get supplies now? he called out to the rest of the team?

They reached the end of the field without incident. Ahead Vorn could see an abandoned roadblock. There were two burned out police squad cars set up blocking the road with an overturned SWAT van a few yards behind. But the signs of fighting werenít from the road approaching the town, they came from the town. The road in that direction had several scorch marks, probably hand grenades or other small explosives, and a number of empty tear gas canisters. A lot of good tear gas does against the undead

Are you noticing what Iím noticing Vorn? Specifically the body count here Padmeí whispered

That's troubling me too Vorn whispered back.

It wasnít the number of bodies, rather it was the complete absence of any, zombie or human. There was a small apartment building not too far away, the door looked like it had been kicked in and then pushed closed as best was possible. Maybe the survivors are holed up in there, or maybe theyíre now undead waiting for an unsuspecting fresh meal Vorn motioned the group together.

Practically speaking there are only 2 hours of daylight left in which we can travel with relative safety. We need to decide if we want to push for that gas station and gamble that we can make it back to the cantina before dusk or if we want to hole up somewhere for the night.

Padme swallowed as she considered Vorn's words. I'm for trying to see this thing through before nightfall. Trying to last the entire night somewhere out here.....I'm not thrilled with the idea.

What had everything come to, when the absence of corpses was far more unsettling than an abundance of them? She gripped her pistol tighter, straining both her eyes and ears for any sign of movement.

Caedus, Reepicheep. Thoughts, comments, or complaints?

Let's go for this Caedus replied. If we get caught out here we'll just have to deal, but I think we'll be fine.

"I heartily agree," said Reepicheep, "We shall take the adventure that befalls us."

Vorn nodded. Alright then letís move out.

It didnít take much longer to reach the outskirts of the town. A quick glimpse was all anyone needed to see things had gotten much worse since they had collected at the Cantina. There were several cars on the road, windshields smashed in with blood spattered across the seats and glass. Morbid curiosity convinced Vorn to peak inside the nearest vehicle, a choice he regretted immediately. Inside was a body, small strips of flesh were all that remained below the neck, the face was terribly mangled but not enough to remove the contorted look of terror and unbearable pain.
