The Flesh eater strain, chapter 12A few miles away, Olivia woke up. She and Rhys had been taking shelter on the second floor in what was ostensibly a bookshop. Most of the books however had presumably been looted and the shop was now filled with mostly empty shelves. She’d heard a noise outside. So she got up and went to investigate.The Flesh eater strain, chapter 12 by Mrgreen36
Looking out the window, she saw a large group of infected roaming the street. She cursed and went back to Rhys.
Rhys felt something shaking him and heard a familiar voice telling him to wake up. He slowly opened his eyes. Olivia was standing over him
“What?” he asked
“There’s infected out the front” said Olivia
Rhys rolled his eyes.
“So? We’ll just go out the back”
“I don’t think that’s a good idea” replied Olivia “The back door of these places is usually alarmed”
“So what do you suggest?” asked Rhys
Olivia shrugged. Rhys sighed
“So we’re stuck in here”
The Flesh eater strain, chapter 11The North side of London was essentially similar to what they’d seen earlier. The streets were empty apart from the infected and were littered with debris and abandoned cars.The Flesh eater strain, chapter 11 by Mrgreen36
As the group walked up onto The Strand, they all felt an air of ominousness. With the exception of Mitchell, none of them had been to the north end of London since the outbreak began. None of them could predict what they’d encounter.
After walking for a short while, they arrived at a large stone building with several pillars at the front. Above it was a sign that read Covent Garden Market
“Oh bugger” said Mitchell “We’re going the wrong way”
The whole group sighed
“I thought there was something wrong with the route you were taking” said George
“Right” said Noah “Everybody turn around.”
“Sorry everybody” said Mitchell “Follow me. I think I can get us back on track”
“Hey!” yelled Mark “Can we stop
The Flesh eater strain, chapter 10As Mark, Mitchell and Leon walked down the tunnel, they suddenly saw a light.The Flesh eater strain, chapter 10 by Mrgreen36
“Hey” said Mitchell “Either we’re dead or we’ve reached the end of the tunnel”
Leon turned to the rest of the group
“We’re near the end!” he yelled
The whole group felt relieved
“Great” said Martin “Any longer in these bloody tunnels and I’d probably go insane.”
As the group got closer, they saw that the station was (to nobody’s surprise) desolate like every other station in the country and had debris all over the platform. According to the signs they were at London Waterloo east.
“Great” said George “From here we can head to Waterloo Bridge and cross the Thames”
The group pulled themselves up onto the platform and made their way to the escalators.
The escalators were equally desolate as the platforms. The lights were barely even on and most of them were flickering. The Escalators were starting to

“So” asked Rhys “Do you have a boyfriend?”
Olivia was taken aback with this question
“No” she said “Why?”
“Just asking” replied Rhys
Olivia stopped and turned around.
“Are you trying to chat me up?” she asked
“What!” said Rhys “No! I was just trying to make conversation!”
“Well why did you ask then?” asked Olivia “Why not say what ordinary people say, like nice weather we’re having!”
“Look” said Rhys “Does it really matter? We’re trapped in London, surrounded by flesh eating zombies. So is it really so bad that I try to have a conversation?”
“But it’s a bit of an awkward thing to ask” said Olivia “Anyway. Why are we standing here arguing? Every second we waste here makes it more likely we&
