Amanda looks down at the zombie and swings with the felling axe. She smashes one of the outstretched arms of the zed with the axe’s blade. Horrified at the carnage, she runs towards the house and calls out, “Dave, Dave get out here!” She taps from foot to foot as she waits.
Amanda looks over her shoulder, “Oh my god….”. The zombie stands despite its injuries.
“Dave,” she shouts again.
Nervously waiting for Dave as the monster approaches she mutters, “Come on Dave, where are you?”
Amanda runs to the door and starts to bang on it. She screams, “Dave get out here!!!”
The door smashes open. A man wearing an old Akubra, brandishing a 10 gauge shotgun and accompanied by a white german shepherd bursts outside, “Get away from her you filthy zed.”
BOOM! The blast, at such close range practically decapitates the zombie. It slumps to the ground dead.
Dave looks at Amanda. She is dishevelled and stressed but before he can speak his sister whimpers, “I can’t find Tim. I came here with him, but he’s gone.”
“Where’d he go?”
“I don’t know.”
Dave offers, “Well let’s search for him.”
“I’ve been searching for him and shouting out but it’s doing no good. I don’t know what’s happened. Let’s get in the car and look for him from there.”
Running to Frank, Dave remote unlocks the car and opens the door, “Come on Codie, into the back set.” The white shepherd jumps into the car, excited to be going for a drive.
Jumping in, Dave looks at Amanda to make sure she’s ok as he puts the key into the ignition, Dave checks the rear vision mirror and sees, too late, that a zombie is rushing the car.
He panics as he tries to get the engine started, “RrrrrRrrrrrRrrrr.” The engine turns but doesn’t fire.
Charging the car, the zombie reaches through the window and grabs Amanda.
Desperately the zombie tries to pull Amanda from the car. It can practically taste her warm salty blood.
Codie’s bark is deafening in the vehicle. The dog lunges at the monster but in the tight confines of the car it cannot help.
Restrained by the seat belt, frustratingly the zombie cannot pull the woman from the car. Amanda retaliates. She pulls the claw hammer from her belt and smashes the out stretched hand of the zed. The zombie loses its grip as its smashed fingers fail to give it purchase. Amanda repeats the blow, again, again, again then then she starts to aim for the head.
“Thwack, thwack, thock”. On the third blow the skull of the zombie caves in and it falls from the car.
“Go, go, go,” she yells and Dave turns the key again. The straight six roars.
They race off and start the search for Tim……………
