Zombie Drabble #132 “Hypatia”

“But we’re cold.”

“There’s plenty of wood outside. Go chop some down.”

“There are zombies out there, if you hadn’t noticed.”

“You have guns and axes. There’s only a few zombies out there. Go get some wood. Or don’t. But you’re not burning the books. When we let you in here—”

“Listen, lady—"

“When we let you in here, we made it clear: the books are not to be damaged. You saw the city burn. They’re probably all like that. We have to preserve the knowledge this building represents—”

“We’re building a fire. Get in the way, you’ll burn too.”
