RED RAVEN


PULLED EGGPLANT AND MUSHROOM

        I hate the word Run.  Lately,  I keep hearing it.   “Rae! RUN!”   See what I mean?   “Run, you idiot!” Finn ordered again.  I was on the sidewalk, with my back to the Weta Cave – a geeky shop that displayed and sold all things Lord of the Rings.  Finn was inside a school building directly in front of me, the windows were open, and both of his hands were pointing at Manuka Street which was to my left. Not too far away, there were three human-shaped figures headed towards me.  Even from a distance, I could tell they were infected males.  One was missing an arm, and the other two hobbling alongside him resembled Freddy Kreuger if Freddy Kreuger were twins, and also a meth addict.   All were wearing the [Read More]

On the foot of a severed, brown leg on the ground.  Shit.  A fresh kill.   I slowly backed away to avoid detection and the blood spilling from the sidewalk.  I was about to turn right on Riddiford Street when I heard it – the sound of pursuit.  Judging from the increasing volume of feet on pavement, it was headed towards my direction. From my position at the end of Constable Street, I sighted a big black umbrella running towards me.  Limping. Sprained ankle, I thought.   Swinging wildly, dainty hands [Read More]
