Hey guys, in the intro I talked about writing a few stories. Well this is one of them. it is mostly dialog and since I am not a writer I figured the best way to write it is how I did. I am sure there are better ways to do it but here it is pasted fresh from my Google Docs.
The Last Stand
This short is about three friends making their last stand against a seemingly never ending wave of zombies. Luke, Ally and Marko have survived together this far and figured that if they are going to go down at least its together. Here’s The Last Stand.
L: Hey, what the fuck! Short bursts man, you’re wasting bullets.
M: Look its my gun I’ll shoot it how I want.
L: Well I think my way is going to keep us alive the longest.
A: Will both of you just shut the fuck up. Jesus, we are about to be eaten alive and you’re arguing about bullets. Look if he kills them than its good.
L: Well lets see, were backed into a corner and this stupid mother fucker is knee capping zombies.
A: What the fuck Marko?
M: What, you can’t get head shots all the time I’m slowing them down. Look, what would you rather have a bunch of walking or running zombies coming at you or a shit load of crawling ones.
L: Well if you shot them in the face then they would be dead and not crawling and if you fired in burst then maybe you could actually hit a fucking zombie.
A: Shit you two look, this is our last bag of ammo and these guys are going to keep on coming, we need to move.
L: Yeah ,well you grab the bag and we’ll climb out of here on the mound of Marco’s crawling zombies.
M: Wait, I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or coming up with a plan.
L: I was being sarcastic you dumb ass.
M: Well, you might want to work on that, it really is hard to tell.
L: Yeah, I’ll work on it. Dip shit
A: Well… he has a point, it really is hard to tell when you’re being sarcastic. Your problem is that you’re too monotone when you speak.
L: Fuck you guys, I’m fighting for our lives and you guys are critiquing my speech.
M: Well bro, you don’t want to meet Saint Peter and have him thinking you’re a total smart ass and send your monotone ass straight to hell
L: Fuck you Marco
A: See that’s what I’m talking about, what you need is to like, fluctuate your voice. You know high and low based on your conversation. Seriously, Luke talking to you is like talking to a manically depressed robot.
L: Well, sorry for being a depressed robot you know with the whole zombies trying to make me a meat platter and all. How is this for you guys. Me Luke me shoot you in ass if you DON’T SHUT THE FUCK UP AND SHOOT THESE FUCKING ZOMBIES.
M: Geez bro no need to get upset, we’re just trying to help.
L: Well thank you Number 2 and Number 10, which is what you’ll be if we keep talking about bullshit and loose focus on killing these zombies.
M: Man, so serious. Lighten up
L: Yeah sure, hey zombies, you know what. You’re just trying to kill me and eat me alive, nothing wrong with that. Its nature, so if you would please make it quick and painless I’ll just lay here AND WAIT FOR YOU TO EAT ME.
M: Fine we are dropping it.
A: Yeah, Luke pull that stick out of your ass and try killing zombies with it.
M: Holy…shit, that was too funny.
A: Almost no ammo, Marko make it count.
M: Kay, hey guys.
L: What is it Marco?
M: I love you guys.
L: Fuck man, dude we just have to kill these last hundred zombies without getting bit, scratched, and keep their fluids out of any part of our bodies. We got this man.
A: Yeah, we got family across the border waiting for us, we just have to…
M: Right, right.
L: What else do we have in the bag?
A: Uh, watch my back
A: Um, .38 snub nose and Marco.
L: Wait, what?
A: Marco, did you put fucking Nunchucks in the bag.
M: Uh…you see, what had happened was it was between them and the katana and that wouldn’t have fit in the bag.
L: Dude, those are yours, you better fucking use them.
L: How many bullets for the snub nose.
A: Half a box
L: Who the fuck used half a box of bullets.
M: Well, remember Subway.
A: You went to Subway?
M: Yeah like 2 days ago
L: So, what did you find.
M: Well no subs, of course. But, there was a jar of pickles and some zombies.
A: Wait, I don’t remember any pickles.
M: Yeah, I kind of dropped them when I was shooting the zombies.
L: Wait when was this.
M: A few nights ago. What I was hungry
L: So you went to FUCKING SUBWAY, BY YOURSELF, AT FUCKING NIGHT!
M: Yeah, so?
L: GIVE HIM THE NUNCHUCKS!
M: Dude, come on.
L: You went to subway and only got pickles which you dropped using bullets from our stash.
M: Well I got a 2 pickles.
L: Ally, nunchucks.
A: Wait you got 2 pickles and ate them. Both.
L: Jesus Marco what the fuck happened.
M: I gave one to a dog
A: FUCK MARCO
M: He looked hungry
L: SO DO WE, everyone is fucking hungry and you gave it to a dog.
M: Bro, you didn’t see the dog.
L: You know what I don’t care but I have a feeling the you’re going to tell me anyway.
M: Hey man it had a look in its eyes, OK. I was cheesing it out the back of subway and when I lost those dead fucks. I was headed back and boom dog. Looking me right in the fucking eyes man. I tried to ignore it but the fucker just kept staring into my eyes. Don’t judge me man you don’t know
L: I don’t know, I don’t know. You got stared down by a fucking dog.
M: Hey, it was big.
A: Really Marko, how big
M: Big enough to rip off my nutsack. Besides, it looked at me like it knew something, you know.
L: Yeah it knew that you were a dumbass and it was trying to figure out if you would give it both pickles.
A: Shit guys, we are out of ammo.
A: I just loaded the last few clips. This is it.
L: Alright, lets kill these bitches and go home.
LAM: Lets do this.
I was going to elaborate more about their actions while they were talking but you know just imagine them shooting while talking taking a few shots here and there. Most of the time Ally was reloading while doing a bit of shooting herself. In my head they were literally backed into a corner. Most of their family had crossed the border with the convoy and people had to be left behind so they volunteered. As for what happened to them. I will leave that up to your imagination. Though Marko did eventually use the nunchucks. Let me know what you think of this short. I wasn’t too sure about leaving it like this but it seemed to work.
