These Are Not The Zombies You're Looking For
Suddenly, a low hum filled the air, seeming to come from every direction at once.

Nephi, feeling that this couldn't possibly be a good sign, immediately hustled Karen back to the car and grabbed his rapier.

"What's wrong Nephi? Do you think that humming is the zombies?" Karen asks concerned as she is hustled back to the car where Nephi grabs his rapier.

Looking around to try and figure out what is causing the humming, Nephi replied "I don't know, don't much care either.  All I know is, humming from nowhere in particular can't be a good sign, so I'm trying to be alert.  Better safe than sorry."

"But of course." Karen replies as she remains calm, grounded in the fact that she still has Nephi with her and that none of them have met with a grisly fate, yet.

Monica was almost too busy kissing Hector to notice the hum - almost. She paused, and cocked her head to the side. "Do you hear that?" Her arms were still wrapped around Hector, but she had relaxed her hold.

Re: These Are Not The Zombies You're Looking For
The first hole opened in the middle of the road, some 50 yards behind Eddie's car.

A heavily decomposed zombie, sporting huge, misshapen hands, burrowed its way out of the asphalt.

It stepped out of the hole and bowed deferentially to the man that followed.

This one was a large black guy with short, irregular hair, and a large scar on the left side of his face. Whatever had left the scare had made a mess of his eye as well. His face looked pale, but not quite decomposing.

His most significant feature, however, was that he was sporting what looked like a full military equipment, including camo fatigues, combat webbing, and, most troublingly, an assault rifle.

He looked straight at Hector and greeted him with: "Mr. DeSanto... You're a hard man to find."

Standing protectively in front of Karen, Nephi paled as the zombie(s) reveal themselves.  'Smart zombies.  Really, really bad sign.' he thought as he waited for Hector to make his move, rapier at the ready and prayer on his lips.

"Nephi, assault rifle beats rapier nine times out of ten, this is not a fight we can win, perhaps if we're lucky thought it'll be one that we can escape." Karen whispers into Nephi's ear as she places a hand on his rapier weilding hand.

Whispering back, Nephi replies "I know that.  I realise the only hope I have against him would be if I wait until he reloads then take out the gun, but where would we go?  They're kinda in the way."  He took a breath and continued "Anyway, you'd better get in.  Be ready to move, and keep your head down."

"Of course." Karen replied as she got back into the driver's seat of Nephi's car, making sure to sit down low just in case the armed new arrival decided to start firing.

"Watch out!" Jane pointed at two new holes opening on the other side of the road. Two more rat-faced zombies came out of them, and now they were caught in the middle.

Hector practically threw Monica back towards Nephi's car and screamed, "RUN!" then ripped the shotgun off his back and lowered it at the behemoth screaming out at it, "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU?!"

Monica positioned herself near Jane, with her back against the unicat. She pulled out her own gun and aimed it at the talking zombie's good eye. "I am not running without you, Hector! Not this time."

The undead leader nodded at Monica: "You got that right little girl... You are not running this time." He raised his unarmed hand, and a wave of nausea overcame Monica.

Re: These Are Not The Zombies You're Looking For
Sitting low behind the driver's wheel, door closed Karen began cursing herself mentally, and praying quietly. There was only one course of action that came to mind and it was crazy regardless of how you put it.

First, Karen would check if the car was still running, she didn't think Nephi or anyone else for that matter had turned it off; second she would peak up over the dashboard or look in the rear view mirror, whichever direction the zombie leader was, checking to see if anyone was in front of or behind the car; she would then lay into the horn hoping the sound would reach the others and inform her friends of her crazy plan.

If no one was standing between the car and the zombie leader, or if they were and moved out of the way once she began blowing the horn, Karen would then attempt to run the leader over with the car, hopefully killing him or at the very least stunning or distracting him long enough for someone else to come up with an equally insane or better plan.

"Pai nosso, que ests nos cus;
santificado seja o teu nome;
venha o teu reino,
seja feita a tua vontade,
assim na terra, como no cu.
O po nosso de cada dia nos d hoje,
e perdoa-nos as nossas dvidas
assim como ns perdoamos aos nossos devedores.
E no nos induzas tentao,
mas livra-nos do mal.
Amen"


She began to pray in her native language as she revved the engine before enacting her crazy plan, assuming her friends were out of the way.

Nephi heard the engine rev and moved out of the way.  He stayed ready though, preparing to run after Karen and hoping that whatever she was planning wouldn't get her killed.

The creature smiled as his attack hit home. Monica's eye glazed over for a moment...

Then he turned to look at Karen, apparently taking his sweet time to ponder an appropriate course of action: "Mr. DeSanto... What is it about you that always leads your friends to horrible deaths?"

"Why don't you shut up?" Retorted Eddie as he nonchalantly pulled out his .45 and pointed it at the zombie leader's head: "Hey, wanna see what I can do with this?"

As Eddie pulled the trigger, another rat-faced zombie rose from the ground, directly between him and the zombie leader. The cop's bullet hit the new threat in the chest with no apparent effect.
