Today is the day. KC’s first day in Yale University. She was so excited that she woke up with a smile on her face. She readied her things and put on her uniform. She saw Jeremiah and Melissa that were also ready for their first day. They all got out of their dorm and walked to the classrooms.
“Bye guys, See you later” Mel said.
Mel ran to her classroom and left KC and Jeremiah alone. KC is wondering why hasn’t he going yet. Her classroom is the farthest among the three of them.
“Hey, isn’t that your classroom?” KC asked.
“Trying to get rid of me so soon?”
KC was so surprised from his answer slash question. “U-Uhh, No. You might be late to your class.”
“There are still a few minutes till the bell rings. I can walk you to your classroom” he winked and smiled.
KC raised her eyebrow at him. “Okay. Don’t blame me if you’re late.” she smiled back at him.
They continued walking until KC was in the classroom.
“Well, see you at lunch.” Jeremiah ran to the opposite hall, not looking back.
“That was weird” KC went into the classroom, smiling widely. She didn’t know how to explain what she was feeling, it was strange to her.
During classes, all she thinks was him. Then the bell rang meaning that it was lunch time. She spent the first and second period of classes, thinking and thinking. She opened the door and walked all the way to the cafeteria. She opened the door and there was a hand waving.
“OVER HERE! KC!” Mel shouted.
“Oh God.” She immediately walked over to them.
“Why are you screaming so loud? It’s deafening.” Jeremiah complained.
Jeremiah looked at KC as she sits. “Hi.” he smiled.
“Hi.” she smiled back.
“DID SOMETHING HAPPEN TO YOU GUYS?” Mel shouted looking at both of them. Jeremiah laughed. Jeremiah looking at the TV conveniently angled to him.
“Oh.” he looked worried.
“What’s wrong?” KC asked.
KC and Melissa turned around, looking at the TV. The news was on, the reporter was talking.
“Here we are at the hospital where it all started. The virus that made people crazy. The virus that made people turn into those things.” While she was talking, the army showed up. She went over to a soldier to interview him.
“Excuse me Ma’am, it’s dangerous here.” he pushed her and began firing towards the hospital.
“Oh my god, Bob look out” the reporter looked at the cameraman. He turned around there was a thing jumped in front of him, dropping his camera. Then, blood splattered to the camera and the reporter keeps screaming and screaming, the soldier grabbed her but the soldier was biting her at the neck. The camera shattered then blacked out.
KC, Mel, Jeremiah and other schoolmates that watched the video. They look worried, scared.
“Maybe it’s not true.” Mel said. First time she didn’t shouted.
“Well. I don’t know what to say.” Jeremiah horrified at what he saw.
KC stood up and took her phone, dialing a number. “Hello, hello?” a woman’s voice answered, sounding very worried.
“Mom, are you okay? Where are you?” KC asked.
“I’m at home! KC don’t go home! They are coming! There are too many of them!”
“Mom! MOM! Please get out of there! The news! I’ve. . .” Before she finished, she was interrupted.
“I can’t. It’s too late.” KC hears her mom crying. “Be safe baby. I love you.”
“Mom?” she hears screaming and growling. They got to her.
KC drops her phone. Tears flooding from her eyes.
