Great story, and what perfect timing to finish it as it's Thanksgiving here in Canada today! I'm off to read Owen and 36 Hours.

It is refreshing to see a story with a female lead. Very nicely done. Thanks for sharing this with us. I must say that for whatever reason 36 hours is my favorite story yours even though it seems to be your shortest.

For those of you looking, the next story is Owen, and the final chapter is called Cole, bringing the stories back to full circle with Cole of 36 Hours.

Doc, man, I just found and devoured Hannah (so to speak). Great stuff, thanks!

As suggested, I'm off to read 36, then Owen, then Cole.

I know I should be working.........but I guess I can work when all the reading is done.

Cheers!

Doc wrote himself into a corner and grew frustrated. :ooh:

That's part of it!

It is hard to get out of a corner when you don't have deus ex machina to get them out of situations.

This is my favorite zombie type story that I have ever read.
You are very good at writing an interesting page turner of a story. If you ever get them on kindle or in print, I will buy them.

“Let’s finish this up,” decided Hannah, not sure if he wanted to talk about it any more or just leave it lie. Isaac agreed and they trooped back into the gunroom.

While Isaac and Eddie found a tarp, Hannah opened the letter and read the blood smeared page.





Teddy,

Well, I can’t says that everythings okay like I usually do, this is bad an I think were all done. Very done. I told Ben not to let that fuck,( sorry kid, but why not cuss now?) in here with us. I didn’t trust him and nether did you. I think you’re safe. I told you to run, and you did, sorry I couldn’t get to you but their was too many of them between us. Hope you made the attic like we planned that one time. I’m rambling, I know. I got bite and it sure as hell hurts like a sonof a bitch. I’m done in. I got all those things that was down here. Used the Browning, I guess if you make it, its yours now. That thing was always a shooter. More bullshit talk sorry. I’m pretty spaced.

Remember your mom, and remember me. I remember how I met your mom; we were in class at college. I was never a good student, always a farmer, I guess. My learning was in the fields and woods. Books were pretty good, but never my thing. Anyway, I remember seeing her in class, sitting in the back by that big fuck, whats his name. mom would remember. God she was a beauty, all that long hair and those dark eyes. little tiny thing she that she was, made her all the more special. wanted to protect her from the moment I saw her. I guess I thought I didn’t have a chance with her but she had other ideas. She asked me out. Thank God for the womens libbers on that one. Took me three years, but I asked her to marry me finally. I was done with school by then. Never did graduate you know. I hadhoped you’d do a little better. Anyway, we got hitched up and I never looked back not once. Mom had a hard time getting pregnant but you came along and we was sure blessed. You were her star.

Remember the time you fell and broke your foot? She was sure made at me for letting you play in the loft.

Remember when you drove the car into the ditch? I was mad at you that time! Eleven and thinking you were Dale Jr. took me an hour to get it out with the tractor. The dents you put in there and the paint was fucked. I made you wash that thing twice a week for a month soild, remember? I should have beat your ass, but I thinkthe washing worked. That was your mom too. As far as I know you never got intothe car without permission again.you sure were her heart.

I’m getting pretty dizzy.

I just want you to know that my last thoughts will be of you and your mom.

I love you kid, even though I never told you much.

Your mom loved you too.

The Browings yours, you know where the rest of the stuff is, ilove you

Bury me with that stupid dog by the cherry tree if you can.

Love Dad



ps If someone else reads this… hell I don’t know. Bury me with Teddy. The cherry trees in the back yard. You can have the rest of this shit.



Ilove you teddy.




Hannah folded the letter and wiped the tears from her eyes. Isaac and Eddie had stopped wrapping the body of Ted’s father to listen. They were unabashedly crying as well.

“I hate this shit,” said Eddie.

Isaac wiped his eyes and nodded to the letter. “Keep it safe, we need to find the cherry tree he’s talking about.”

Hannah put the letter in her jacket pocket and they continued to wrap the body of Ted’s father in silence. Hannah could not help but think of all the people she had seen die over the last month. She hated all of them, and she hated that she lived. She feared death, but if she were dead, at least she wouldn’t have to see the suffering of people she cared about. Hannah followed Isaac and Eddie as they carried the body up the stairs and into the sunlight.



10 years on, and Lord knows how many times I’ve read this story...and this passage still hits me hard.

Maybe it’s thinking of my dad who died too soon, or me thinking of how I’d want my own son to carry on if something were to happen to me, but this makes it feel very personal.

This story...hell, the compendium of related stories...needs to be published. Some of it still needs a good edit, but damn...great stuff here doc.

Well hell. Thought after all this time I was the only one that had a tear or two after that note. I agree with 91Eunozs in every way.
