Strain of Resistance
I was twelve years old when the world ended.
For eight years I’ve survived this hellhole of a planet, fighting the parasites that mutated most of earth’s population into blood-thirsty freaks, while the rest of us became the lunch special on their human-filled menu. And that’s only one of our problems as we try to survive everyday life in this new reality.
Enough food and water? If we’re lucky.
Leaving the safety of our high walls? Only if we want to face the vicious cannibals and leeches haunting the streets searching for prey.
Living any sort of normalcy? Yeah, right.
If it wasn’t for my fellow hunters and Luke, I would have given up long ago. Luke. My friend. My leader. My rock. The man whose arms held me as my world shattered when the invaders took everything I had left. And he wants more. More time. More... commitment. But these walls I’ve built up are the only thing keeping me together. If I let him in, if I let myself love him, it’ll only hurt worse when the inevitable happens.
Because in our world, no one is safe, since the only end to this suffering is death. And our war is just beginning.
They’ve already stolen so much from me. It’s time for things to change.
My name is Bixby and I’m the resistance.
