Junho was shaking, covered in blood with a fainted Yujin in his arms.
Everything had happened so fast.
So fast that he still struggled to breathe.
He could still hear the screams coming from the main hall, screams that were slowly dying just like their owners.
They have been hanging out as always, spending some time in a PC cafe when hell broke loose.
Three monsters fell down the stairs where the cafe was and proceeded to eating the first persons that fell under their grip.
Most of the people had tried to climb up the stairs only to be pinned down by other in coming monsters.
Junho screamed to Yujin to follow him to the storage room at the back of the store but found her knocked out on the ground because of a fleeing group of older men that had pushed her so hard that her head had hit a corner of a nearby desk.
Junho saw a monster, or whatever it was come closer to her,grabbing her legs, ready to bite them.
The young boy, mostly out of reflex but also fear of losing her, grabbed the nearest keyboard and used it to bash the creature's head in.
Everything in his head had been white, he didn't even remember how he had dragged her to the storage room but he had, and now he didn't know what to do.
Junho closed his eyes in the dimly lit room and prayed that she would be ok, that she would wake up without any problem.
Junho stared at the blood covering him and remembered the news, a disease.
A new disease that made patients violent,but to which extent?
What if he was contaminated? What if he turned into a monster too? What if he hurted her?
The young boy laid her on a pile of rice bags, the most comfortable spot there was in the small room and proceeded to looking for some way of tying himself up.
"Shit…" growled Junho,digging into the boxes.
At least there was a lot of food, Yujin would not starve even if he died.
He heard her moan, she was waking up.
"Junho…?" said a small voice. "What happened…? Where are we?" asked Yujin, standing up and walking up to him.
"Stop! Stay where you are!" shouted Junho.
The young girl froze.
"Do you remember the monsters?" reminded the boy to his confused friend.
Yujin thought for a bit before nodding.
"Yes.They were biting people and I...Uh...I got knocked out I think..."
"I have their blood on me, I'm not safe to be around."
"What are you saying? Don't be ridiculous, they are obviously zombies! In the movies you have to-"
"This is not a movie Yujin!" shouted the worried boy
"But you weren't bitten right?"
"...Do you remember our science classes on diseases and their transmissions?"
Yujin froze again, of course she didn't.
She never listened in class.
"By the air, through mucuses, orally, sexually and through bites or cuts." sighed Junho " Except for the two last options, I am possibly contaminated. I have been exposed."
Junho saw her face tense up.
That was maybe the most worried about him he had ever seen her.
"...I have to tie myself up just in case I turn. I have to in order not to harm you." started the boy."We...We also have to find a weapon a weapon for you if I-"
Junho tried his best not to think of the worst, of the pain that would probably come if he transformed into one of them.
He tried to forget their empty and glassy eyes, their ripped flesh and all the blood.
He had to stay calm for her.
Yujin stepped closer to him and he stepped back until his back hit the wall.
Yujin touched the blood on his shirt and spread it onto her cheek.
What had she done?
"There. If you die, I die."
"...IDIOT" shouted Junho,pushing her away and looking for some alcohol in the boxes.
He could feel his heart racing.
His hands were shaking more and more as he realized that there was no alcohol or emergency kit to be found.
"Fuck!" shouted Junho before leaning his head against the shelves' cold metal.
Junho felt her arms wrap around his waist and her head against his back.
She was shaking.
"...Why?" asked Junho with a weak voice, he wanted to cry. "Why would you do that idiot?"
Junho felt her grip him tighter.
"...Because you are my best friend and I can't imagine a world without you Junho. If you jump, I jump. We promised each other remember? That nothing would drive us apart." whispered Yujin, trying her best not to listen to all the screams surrounding them. "We'll survive this or end with this together."
He could feel her tears drench his shirt.
Junho slowly caressed her fingers.
"...So don't ever say something about leaving me first ok? I hate it...I hate it so much." sobbed Yujin.
"Alright...Don't cry…" pleaded Junho, turning back and rubbing the possibly deadly blood off of her skin.
Yujin buried her face in his neck.
"....What do we do now…?"
That was a good question.
In movies the heroes would arm themselves and leave with an epic music in the background.
But they weren't heroes and their life wasn't a movie.
Yujin was fast but not fast enough to get out safely out of that place and he wasn't that good at sports.
They would be more than three out there now.
How he regretted not having trained more with Yohan.
"We have to wait."
Speaking of Yohan...
What about their friends and family?
Did they take cover? Were they safe?
A ball of anxiety formed in his stomach.
Would he ever see everyone alive again?
What about school? He hadn't even gone to high school...
"Wait until the screams die down at least."
"Then we'll call for help."
