Athlete Beth once ran for glory, now she runs for her own survival.
The undead can run, and run fast. They do not tire, do not slow, do not rest. And they never stop. Ever.
Beth is alone on a quiet country road, a zombie on her tail. With an injured knee and safety more than ten miles away, can she make it? Or will she be the zombie’s victory dinner?
Second place is dead last…
Before the EMP pulse that crippled humanity, and the zombie virus that flourished in its aftermath, Beth was a long-distance runner, and a damned good one.
Ha! Ha! “Damned,” how appropriate for this story.
The story begins with Beth running down a country road. Chasing her is a zombie, a very fast zombie.
Beth’s philosophy had always been: “The second you showed weakness to your opponent was the moment you were doomed.” She is determined to outrun the zombie, but is hampered by an injured knee.
This race has dire consequences if she loses.
Even though this is only a short story, I enjoyed it very much. The ending will surprise most readers which I think is awesome.
I rate this story as 4 out of 5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Perrin Briar was born in Huntingdon, in the UK. He has worked as a bookie, salesman, factory hand and stock counter. He eventually got into TV and worked on various shows in the production and development departments. He currently teaches English in South Korea.
The Blood Memory books involve a group surviving at sea in a zombie-infested post-apocalyptic world. The first book follows Jordan Grant, who wakes up knowing nothing about the virus or the world as it now is. During the first season Jordan unlocks key memories in his past that have a dramatic effect on the world now.
The Z-Minus Trilogy follows Chris and Maisie, a father and daughter with a bad relationship. Unlike other zombie books, in this series the virus takes eight hours to spread throughout the host’s body. In the first book Chris uses this time to get his daughter somewhere safe. In the second book Maisie is infected and Chris must get her to the cure. The final episode sees Chris taking Maisie to the research vessel where they can harvest the cure from her.
The Swiss Family RobinZOM series is a tongue-in-cheek zombie apocalypse based on the original Johann Wyss stories.
He now lives in South Korea.
