The End of the Humanity
The human race is on the verge of extinction. Two months ago ISIS terrorists attacked the CDC in Atlanta, GA. It was an inside job, they knew what they wanted and they knew exactly where to find it. Dozens lay dead or wounded as they escaped with a briefcase in the middle of the night.
It wasn’t until the following day that the public was made aware of the scope of the danger posed. ISIS made off with 4000 mL of a manmade retrovirus known simply as Strain 1. What the US Government was planning on doing with it is beyond me, but ISIS destroyed the cure and is threatening to release the virus into our drinking water.
The US Government, in it’s infinite wisdom, decided to track down the terrorist group and, to put it simply, bomb the fuck out of them. That went off without a hitch. The only problem was that Strain 1 was caught at the edge of the blast and shrapnel from the blast rained down onto a nearby village. The UN forbade the US from bombing a village of innocents to wipe out the virus. That was our only chance.
Fast forward about a week, the original village hit critical mass and sort of erupted into a pinkish mist that was then carried even farther than the original virus. It seems the when carriers of the virus run out of flesh to consume they wither into a virus-carrying dust rather quickly. The virus breaks down the cell walls of the carrier’s body and turns the virus airborne. It spread like wildfire after that.
Strain 2 was the name officially given to the airborne version of the virus. It can be absorbed through the skin, and is too small to be seen by the naked eye. In the course of a month nearly 90% of the population of Asia and Europe was infected. There was nothing we could do anymore. The best prepared people are the ones most likely to survive, the ones that call themselves “preppers”.
Today I write this entry as the last survivor of my family. I had to shoot my own son in the head to prevent him from biting me. It seems that the air filters on my shelter weren’t good enough. I thought we were going to be able to ride this out, survive the apocalypse. Why wasn’t I turned with them? Why couldn’t it have been me instead of my boy? Why did I have to be immune and not him?
