Lily sat down at her desk, pulling out the days homework. She sighed and leaned back in her spin-chair. Lily closed her eyes and sighed again. 'I hate school, and today was slow and boring, and now Im really tired from P.E...' Lily decided to stow her homework until it was tomorow. 'It wont hurt me...' She thought, her thoughts already getting fuzzy from lack of sleep. It had been two weeks since she had gone to that cavern-like place and she was staying up at least till midnight reading horror stories. When Lily put the books away, she found herself unable to sleep usualy. Lily closed her eyes, finding herself half-asleep, but not quite. She focused her mind on nothing and her head cleared, leaving nothing but a blank white space...<P> When Lily opened her eyes, she found herself sitting at a picnic table...in the cavern-like place!!!! Lily knew she hadnt fallen asleep, and she could still feel he half-concious body back in the real world. Lily had to admit that she was pretty scared. Then, she saw Melody talking with a really cute boy. He had black hair that was cut to just past his ears, narrow (they looked asian)green eyes, and semi-dark skin. 'He looks japanese!' Lily thought with a start. "Rediol, Melody!" He said, walking into a door. "Rediol, Hidnori!" Melody called, with a shy smile. "Hey! Melody!" Lily called, running over. "What?! Oh! Hey, Lily!" Melody said, startled by Lilys sudden appearence. "Its been awhile!" Lily nodded, glancing at the door the japanese boy had gone through. "Who was that?" Lily asked, feining innocence. "Hidnori? Oh, hes just a friend." Melody said with a slight blush. "So," Melody abruptly changed the subject. "You dream here again?" Lily shook her head. "No, thats whats really scary. I can tell Im awake! I can feel myself, sort of." Melody nodded eagerly. "Youve actually come here then!" She exclaimed. "Come where?!" Lily sighed, very confused. "Well, all of the people here, we call it the tunnels."<P> End of chapter two. Will write more soon.<P>~Seqyn&starf
Highly recommend this short zombie story. About 11 pages. Guy meets another guy in a tunnel trying to escape from zombies and they meet a kid along the way. Suspensful, couldn't wait to see what happened next. Left me hanging, would have liked a definite ending.
Nice short story
