Slabtown

 


KunoichiKei and Panda ride the bus to Slabtown... looking all around as it exits the interstate... "Did you invite Kid?" "Hai! He said he'd ride his bike out here after he got off work... I gave him the directions you gave me..." the bus-stop in front of a little place with a sign for 'drive-thru' beer... Kei slinging her pack over a shoulder as she and Panda get off... and the bus speeds away in a swirl of dust... "Wow! Quick stop!"

The town seemingly deserted... nobody manning the drive-thru... you can't help but wonder if you have the right place... until Panda perks up her ears... hearing music coming from a nearby house... "That must be the place..."

KunoichiKei looks at the house and back at Panda... "Are you sure... I know you said the party was called the Rave of the Brave... but surely not in the Slabtown Funeral Parlor... who invited us anyway Panda..." "Oh you know... that weird guy in our Zombie Survival class... Garth Shrader..."

The funeral parlor seemingly heaving with activity... as you move closer... the music a trifle discordant... and seemingly skipping... you'd have thought somebody would have taken care of that... red splashes on the windows giving a suitably spooky atmosphere... as you knock on the door...

KunoichiKei gives Panda a sideways glance as she knocks on the door... "Are you sure you should have worn that cheerleader outfit?" "What? Garth asked me too... besides it's not so diff from that school uniform you're wearing... and what I wear when I go body bagging with dad..." Kei just shaking her head as she turns back to the opening door...

Your eyes widening... the party certainly spooky... but a little late for Halloween... the hallway seemingly covered in blood... and the person at the door made up as a perfect zombie... looking dead and rotting... and reaching out a groping claw towards you...

KunoichiKei blinks... gulping to speak as the hand grips her shoulder... "Hiya... I'm Kei... and this is..." the clutching fingers as cold as lunchmeat out of the fridge... "Panda! Holy Shit! It really is a zombie!" Kei stumbling backwards... the cold hand ripping the white blouse right off her upper body... Panda already locking and loading as she yells... "Run!"

Kei making a break for it... as the sound of howling comes from inside the house... a tidal wave of zombies stampeding towards the live flesh... one already tearing at the blouse... ripping it apart with his teeth before the decayed brain realizes it's only clothing...

KunoichiKei runs back towards the bus stop... her skirt dancing about her thighs as she runs... only the straps of her backpack seemingly keeping her generous breasts in the soft lavender silk of her bra... Panda following close behind... firing a Glock over her shoulder... dropping pursuers like it's an arcade game... "So was Garth trying to get us killed... or did he not know?"

The crowd still shambling forward... and more howling coming from the darkness elsewhere... no idea whether Garth has been eaten... or if he's directing this madness... only that danger seems to be closing in from all directions... and the bus is long gone...

KunoichiKei blinks as a grinning Panda keeps dropping zombies... maybe twenty... exclaiming... "Professor Karnage is right... one shot to the head does it... piece of cake..." there is a click as her clip ejects... Kei poking her on the back... giving a wan smile... "Great until you run out of bullets... how many clips did you bring..." Panda shaking her head... the girls taking off in a sprint toward a church...

The zombies stumbling around in force now... lit by flickering streetlamps... stumbling closer and closer... until you barricade yourselves inside the church... looking around for a means of barricading the door further as the legions of the undead begin to hammer on it with rotting fists...

KunoichiKei locks the huge doors... then tries to push a wooden pew in front of it... "A little help here, Panda..." "Sure..." Panda getting the other end... sliding the long bench into position across the door... which begins to rock in and out... as if the church were a heart beating... almost as fast as those of the girls... who vault over the altar... Kei tossing Panda the candelabra... taking the bible for herself...

The zombies battering against the door... the wood starting to splinter... even as a rotting stench reaches your nostrils... and a priest emerges from under the altar... a zombie in a cassock... reaching to grab at your skirt...

KunoichiKei whacks the holy zombie over the head with the bible open... slamming the book shut even as he pulls off her skirt... the rotting head splattering like a watermelon... Panda throwing the lighted candelabra toward the front as the horde break the door down... the wooden pew quickly catching... the whole sanctuary in flames as the girls run out the back and into the graveyard...

The grass wet... and the mud oozing... your eyes widening as you realize why... the ground heaving as the zombies dig their way out of their graves... almost skeletal arms pushing up through the soil... as more and more of the ghouls rise from the dead all around you...

KunoichiKei screams as a boney hand grabs her ankle... "Holy shit!" jerking her leg away... snatching up a flower vase off a stone... jabbing it through the head of the rising figure... then doing the same to one trying to drag Panda down into the ground... even as she beats on his head with her gun... "Through the brain, Panda..." brains splattering...

The zombies letting go... even as a last flailing hand manages to tear away your backpack... and your bra... leaving your breasts bouncing as you run out of the graveyard... looking desperately for some kind of haven from the reaching hands...

KunoichiKei 's sweaty skin shines in the moonlight as she runs... Panda beside her... now without a skirt herself... the girls weaving in and out of the reaching hands... and up the road toward the city limits sign for Slabtown... only to turn back as the road is blocked by more shambling dead figures... diving into a parked car... locking the doors...

The zombies crowding around the vehicle... snarling... the car rocking as they beat on the glass with their fists... pounding until it cracks... then shatters... rotting hands reaching in to grab whatever they can...

KunoichiKei squeals as she rolls to the floor boards to escape reaching hands... pulling out the backseat to scramble into the trunk... the girls huddling there... even as the car is rolled over... the trunk popping open... Kei putting a wooden handle through one head... before both girls are hauled out... screaming and flailing... eyes wide as open jaws near their throats...

A pair of crossbow bolts suddenly jutting through the brains of the zombies... as a motorcycle roars up... Kid letting off more crossbow bolts left and right... dropping the zombies where they stand... as you scramble onto the back of the bike... and tear through the horde... running down any Kid can't dodge...

KunoichiKei tells Panda to duck... using the shovel from the trunk to remove the head of the zombie behind her... frowning as the headless body wanders aimlessly away with Panda’s panties... "We've got to get out of here! Can we get three on the bike, Kid?" Kid just nodding with mouth hanging open... staring at the two girls... one topless... the other now bottomless...

Kid Crossbow managing to steer you both away from the carnage...outside the city limits... racing past what look like military humvees... aiming to contain the problem... leaving you wondering if Garth did somehow cause all that... and what you'll say if you see him at school the next day...

KunoichiKei pokes at Panda... "Give me your top... my boobs are showing..." "No way, Kei... unless you give me your panties... this seat is hard..." "That's because you're sitting on the gas tank, Panda..." Panda getting a funny look... "I wonder if Professor Karnage might have put Garth up to this... maybe this was like a pop quiz or something..."
