Liepvre, France – Day 159
They were just three, now, down from eleven a week earlier. Remy hated life now more than ever before. As the only man in the group, Syrah and Yvette expected him to be able to protect them. And create fire. And find food. And figure out directions to wherever it was they were going. Scratch fire – that was what had gotten so many of them killed the week earlier: apparently, smoke and the smell of cooking food attracted zombies, and before anybody had had a chance to eat, dozens of the undead were trampling through the parking lot the group was in.
