Nightmare

Post by munsi » Mon Nov 22, 2010 6:27 pm

I had the most horrible nightmare.

I dreamed the Zombies became self aware, learned to communicate and plan. And they’d used this ability, in addition to superior numbers, to breech the stone walls of our compound. I dreamed they swarmed in before we realized what they’d done, and were devouring our band of terrified survivors.

I dreamed there was nothing we could do.

But when I awoke and ran to the window, I was relieved to find it was just a dream.

Still outside, the same mindless, ravenous hoard that’d killed and eaten everyone I’d ever cared about.

So… good?

No news is good news. Also, every silver lining has a dark cloud. The narrator should be glad for what she's got...

Breach. Breaching is what you do to walls. Breech is the end of the gun you stick the bullets in.

I really liked this, particularly the 'happy ending'.

You could only get a happy ending better than that if there were a masseuse in the room with you. Ba dum Bum.
If I wrote it you can read it unless you sound like Fran Drescher.
