    There was a zombie were armed somehow."What the heck?"I asked.I then charged at him with an emerold sword and a shield in his hands with the full Tigers Eye set of armor on.He instantly died.Then more armed zombies and four ghasts(yes,I just said it)appeared and then whe fought until the ghasts just ate me.The ghast didnt have a digestive system,so I was safe."I wonder if any other mobs have to eat.Then I tryed to kill then ghast.He didnt die.Then I gave him ten seconds of life by potion of poison and teloported to my house.Then a few minutes later when I was in a crafting session,a zombie spawning meteor crashed into a house.Then I knew the world isnt safe while zombies invaded."I need to abandon my world for now.If only I could get to another person's world.Then I went to the my secret bunker.Luckily,I had loads of food.So I could stay there until someone invited me to there world.End of part one up to three people can join the story when at least one person joins the story I will continue the story.Post here to be in Invasion of the Zombies and next part will be in Ender wars book Enderrising.bye
