Silence is all I’ve heard for a while. I was born in this hell, and here I will stay. I haven’t seen anyone like myself for decades, not a living soul but me on this planet. I keep my shotgun strapped on me, as well as my revolver, and boy ain’t she pertty, but don’t get me wrong, she’ll sure as hell take your head off. I’m Dave, a survivor. That sum’-bitch behind me is one-o-dem-der zombies. I got his head hangin’ up because I likes to look at ‘em when I drink my coffee every morning. I remember killing ‘em like it was yesterday, if yesterday were ‘bout 20 years ago.
Me and that bugger had some good times, I remember when we used to– god damnit now I got myself cryin’ again. Lemme’ tell y’all how it happened. Well it was my 9th birthday, and I was sure-as-hell excited for it cause’ I was gettin’ me my first ever huntin’ shotgun! I had went into my Ma’s room to ask her when I could open my presents cause me and all my cousin’s had already finished off the cake. My ma was such a sweetie, she was. Of course she told me I could open my gifts, just after I thank Pa for the cake he bought (which was so mouth juicin’ good leme tell you) .
So I went to the room upstairs to see if my paw was in the bar, and on my way up I heard somthin’ heavy hit the ground! I ran up the steps and saw some ugly lookin’ muh-f***er in my paws bar, layin’ on the floor. The thing got up and ran at me like some damn wild animal, I tell you what! So I went and grabbed the machete off my Pa’s trophy wall right next to me, and sliced that some-bitches head clean off. It happened real darn fast so I hadn’t even seen what this ugly dude even looked like, and when I flipped him over I – I – I’m sorry I just… I can’t say no more cause it just…
makes me – Good Lord… I miss you Bobby Joe Brown, you were the best god-damn-daddy anyone could ever ask for. Discovery- We figure out that the setting is a zombie apocalypse, and the narrators name is Dave. Flashback- We are told a story about the zombie that Dave killed 20 years back. Foreshadowing- The zombie head on Joe’s wall. Reversal- The some-bitch zombie turns out to be Dave’s dear old daddy. Also most of the improper grammar and spelling here is on purpose.
