basically, what would happen if neil and andrew were separated during an apocalypic situation.
The news says it first.
The world is ending and everything has gone to shit.
Nowhere is safe and nothing is okay anymore.
Nothing was ever okay, but they make it sound new, like this is something nobody expected to happen. Not here, never here.
It started with a virus. It was like the flu in every other way; the fever that kept people bedridden for days, the sickness and the headaches. It was like the flu in every other way but one: it slowly ate away at people’s insides, made living people into nothing but hollow hosts. Nobody would have expected a kindergarten teacher from the West to lash out her students but it was even worse when she bit one, and then he bit his mother three weeks later and she bit her boss. Like that, the vicious cycle continued. Everywhere there was panic, there was a disaster, there was death.
