Feeling numb Lilith’s body just fell to the floor, tears flowing down her pale face. The Emergency Alert System was just shown on the news, it was telling people to head out of Colorado and make their way towards Wyoming. Lilith’s car was in the shop for the past two weeks, now how was she going to get out of Colorado. Knowing she had to pull herself together Lilith began to bite down on her lip, hoping the pain will snap her out of it, while chanting in her head that only a coward would give up now. Lilith slowly stood up her body shaking all over knowing that the first thing would be putting on clothes. Rushing to her bedroom she yanked the closet door open pulling out dark blue jeans, a long-sleeved shirt, and converse. Lilith knew converse were not the right shoes for running but the only other footwear she had was flip flops. After dressing in more suitable clothing Lilith was dumbfounded on what to do next. Looking around for a solution her round green eyes fell upon her messenger bag. Knowing she would be walking Lilith thought it would be better to travel lite. Going to the kitchen she searched all the cabinets and peeked in the fridge. Finding a couple of things that might be helpful two water bottles, a bottle of half drunken RC, beef jerky, couple of six pack peanut butter crackers, and pop tarts. Running to the window she looked out, not many houses where up this way that’s why she moved here, yet now if felt lonely and eerie. It looked dark outside not seeing much but before she looked away something chough her attention. An outline of a human shaped figure was slowly making its way straight at her; something was wrong the figure was walking funny. Lilith’s mind went right to the news reports stating that people who had the virus were dangerous and its best not to approach them. Lilith did not know the full extent of this virus and not wanting to she ran grabbing her messenger bag, and a flash light in her hallway closet, Lilith went to the back door cracking it slightly. Not seeing any human shaped figures out back Lilith quietly went out the door dashing as fast as she could to the trees. Having nowhere to go she headed more into the woods hoping maybe to come to a road where she might be able to get a ride to Wyoming. Fearing something might be out in the woods Lilith did not turn on her flash light. She walked for what seemed like hours never finding the road or hearing a car Lilith was getting tired and kept jumping at every little noise she heard. Darkness was over taking her eyes, she could not stop falling over her feet, and she had to start using the flash light. After about another hour the light was showing that the trees were thinning out. Lilith could hear sounded like gun shots and then a few minute later shouts. She ran to the edge of trees looking out in the opening field she could see a cabin then a person run off the porch. Lilith watched as the person ran to a car starting it up and making his/her way to other people. Fear hit Lilith as she seen the person kill someone she backed up hitting a tree letting the flash light fall to the ground. “How can someone just do that? What’s going on?” Lilith starting crying, sliding to the ground biting down on her lip to try and wake herself up.
