Sunday, December 8th, was the day it all started. Some might call it a catastrophe, some call it The End of Humanity, but I, Eli, call it an experience; even if it is evidently more extreme. Caused by a scientist’s mistake, humankind was at serious risk of extinction. What is this life-changing event? It is something so hysterically implausible that I thought I was merely living in a dream. It is the Zombie Apocalypse of 2014, and here is my story:
Today was the third day the zombies have been here, yet I still cannot acknowledge their existence, it seems so unreal. ¼ of the world has already died, or technically, infected and are transitioned into horrible, foul-looking creatures. They haven’t arrived at Atlanta yet, where I live, but are very close. My parents don’t plan on an attempt to safety, or taking any precautions. Like the pessimists they are, they expect the worst out of this supernatural situation. The T.V. isn’t helping at all either, besides reminding us that we are going to die very soon. There is a one minute video on write now, some guy was taking a video on his phone and it’s being broadcasted.
The creatures were ugly looking, vomit-green, saliva dripping out of their mouth, dark, black circles under their eyes, making hissing noises at the man taking the video (imagery). Suddenly, the camera went black, not before I saw a green hand reach out for him. I guess he didn’t survive then. I felt bad for the man. I guess my death is coming soon as well. I feel calm, ready for my decease, indifferent. The zombies are predicted to arrive in Atlanta in a day or two. There is officially no hope in civilization. I picked up the remote, ready to change the channel. The door suddenly came crashing down. Then, chaos.

...ddenly saw me and grabbed the gun and shot the zombie. I ran up to him, grateful and happy.
“Thank you so much, really, thank you.” I smiled at him.
“You’re very welcome.” He smiled back at me.
I suddenly collapsed, my ear was stinging. I touched it. It was a bite. No, this can’t be. I didn’t feel anything at all. Kolton stared at me, fear in his eyes. My pulse was speeding. My hand was turning greenish-yellow, my nails grew, saliva was beginning to drip grossly, my hair was partly falling out slowly, my vision was blurring, my body was getting stronger, and my body was vibrating (imagery). I was sitting at Kolton’s feet. I looked up, I was staring in horror. I need to do the right thing, if I complete my transition, I’ll turn him into a zombie.
“SHOOT ME, NOW!” I yelled.”
“What? No!!”
“NOW!” I shouted louder.
The last thing I heard was a bullet shot.

Arthur C. Clarke's Childhoods End Essay - Arthur C. Clarke's Childhoods End One could never believe that such a piece as Arthur C. Clarke's "Childhood's End," was written nearly 50 years ago. The story itself was far ahead of its time and will probably remain so forever. There are some who dislike or would rather not read science-fiction because of its highly idealistic writing and plot outlines. This novel is the greatest I've read of science-fiction as of yet. Taking consideration into the fact that I am a novice science-fiction reader, one could dismiss my statement as being naive....   [tags: essays papers] 1552 words

Essay about The Lock Picker - Life was moving at an even pace. I was a happy, divorced mother of three with only one left in the nest. The even pace stepped lively with work, friends and family. I could not have imagined that all of that was about to change. Now this is not a story of tragedy or bold adventure, but rather a simple story of a quiet coming of age. Most would probably expect a coming of age to follow the cumulative years of angst associated with teens and young adults. Mine however, came at a time of advancement....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 913 words

Air Disaster- Creative Writing Essay - Air Disaster- Creative Writing The sight that greeted my eyes was haunting. There were dead bodies as far as the eye could see, but somehow nobody had a scratch on them. The plane was in pieces, scattered all around. As the waves rolled up the beach, more and more bodies were revealed. The sun was burning high in the sky and everyone was beginning to tire out. The cliffs towered down on us; the sand burnt our feet as we trod carefully between the corpses. It was a shock; we hadn’t expected to find anything there, but it appeared that almost everyone who had been on the plane was lying here, on the beach, with us....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 956 words

The Beast Within Essay - The Beast Within The spawn knelt in the shadows of the corner. His iridescent eyes searching the dark for his prey. A prey he knew very well, almost too well. From the end of the stone corridor the spawn's ear picked out a single disturbance. From behind the mask a man's mouth twisted in a smile and a thought of satisfaction crossed his mind. Rising to his feet the spawn walked defiantly down the corridor. His armoured boots making no sound on the cold floor. A heart that beat no blood, pounded within the unnatural armour of the spawn....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 629 words

Creative Writing: The Necklace Essay - Well, my story starts the same way that everyone else's does, creation.

Therefore, unlike you, when I was created, people knew exactly what they were getting.

Essay on Creative Writing: The Assassin - He was lying there still and calm, oblivious to the rain pouring through the holes in the rusted roof. The warehouse was abandoned many years ago, the air was thick with dust making it difficult to breathe; the smell was like burnt toast. The disused machinery loomed out of the dark corners, covered in cobwebs ghostly images. The Assassin was unaware of his immediate surroundings, his mind focused on his mission. His vantage point gave him a perfect line of fire. A neglected road that was parallel to the decaying wasteland where homeless people built their makeshift homes lay between the Assassin, his targets hideout....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay] 494 words
