It was April 2nd, 2025, a Saturday in the beginning of summer when a teen, named Josh Arch was home on his dad’s farm in southern Texas working on an old 1972 Chevelle SS. Josh is 16, he has dark blonde hair and brown eyes. Josh was a mechanic for his dad’s business. Josh has a family of four, Josh’s dad and mom and little sister and himself. They lived next to a gas station about a mile from town, which has a population of around 4,000 people. Josh’s family has been around in the town ever since he can remember. Josh woke up one morning to the sound of his mother cooking breakfast, he got out of bed, got dressed and headed downstairs. “Morning,” Josh’s mom said. “Morning,” Josh slurred. “What do you plan on doing today?” asked Josh’s dad who was sitting at the table. “Probably gonna work on the Chevelle,” Josh said. “Can I help?” Sophie said from the stairs. “No, You will mess something up,” Josh said. “No I won't!!!” said Sophie. “Let her help, Josh,” Josh’s father said. “Fine, but if she messes up she’s done helping,” Josh said. “We will see,” Said Josh’s father. After breakfast Josh headed for the barn where the Chevy was, Sophie followed him quietly. Josh tugged both of the double doors open, and there it was, the jet black 1972 Chevy SS. Josh’s grandfather got the car the year it came out, and passed it down to Josh’s dad. Josh wanted to try and get the car for his birthday coming up on April 13.

The next day the father ran into some problems getting back to the house in his car, there were too many zombie and creatures on the road for the car. So he decided to take his favourite sniper, an M24, and go around the creatures to the barn. The friends house was about 230 yards from the barn and the gas station was in the middle of the two houses. The father was on the road far from the gas station, but he could still see the creatures from his car.
