Selena


Plans are pointless. Staying alive is as good as it gets.


Selena: What's up?
Jim: Nothing. Got a headache.
Selena: Bad?
Jim: Yeah, it's pretty bad.
Selena: Well, why didn't you say anything before?
Jim: Well, because I didn't think you'd give a shit.

It started off as rioting. But right from the beginning you knew this was different, because it was happening in small villages, market towns... and then it wasn't on TV anymore. It was on the street outside. It was coming through your windows. It was a virus, an infection. You didn't need a doctor to tell you that. It was the blood, or something in the blood. By the time they tried to evacuate the cities, it was already too late. The infection was everywhere. The army blockades were overrun, and that's when the exodus started.

[Last line] Do you think he saw us that time?

[by a display of apples, the store's only undecayed produce] Mmm... irradiated.

Secondary to protection, our real job is to rebuild. Start again.

This is what I've seen in the four weeks since infection: people killing people. Which is much what I saw in the four weeks before infection, and the four weeks before that, and before that, as far back as I care to remember- people killing people. Which, to my mind, puts us in a state of normality right now.
