We are still alive. All of us, mercifully. I wasn’t able to write last night, and to be honest, I’m writing this entry on a tiny amount of borrowed time. 

It occurs to me that it is Saturday night. If the world hadn’t fallen apart in June, I wonder what I would be doing right now, instead of fighting off what appears to be an unending siege of the fucking living dead. I wonder what Cassie and I would be doing?

She’s dead. I think we’ve proven that. At least I think I've proven that to myself. I haven’t dreamt of her, or anyone else since that night. Probably because I haven’t really slept at all since then. We are benefitting from our marginal success in fending off the zombies. Oddly enough. Christ I am tired.

I need to keep this short. Or take frequent breaks to go shoot more of them. 

The entire night of the… 3
rd
? Whenever my last entry was, we sat awake in the upstairs rooms watching the crowd build and build until every single open yard of space had at least one zombie in it. There had to be five hundred of them. Just as I said before there was…. AFK.

 

Banging on the front door again. One of them managed to climb over the mound of bodies and tumble down the pile against the front fire door. I had to lean out the second floor window with the .22 pistol to kill it. Thankfully we have an abundance of .22lr ammo. We desperately need another damn .22 weapon though. The way we’re pumping rounds through the two we have, the barrels are not going to last if we make it through this.
