Zombie Drabble #138 “Searching The Ruins”

“Hey, can anybody read?”

“Yeah, what?” Old man Lowe set his crossbow down and made his way to where the young man was standing. Tacked to a closed door was a note, written on paper yellowed with age.

“What’s it say?'”

“Hold your torch up. ‘My name is Jean Louis Lefebre. I was bitten and have locked myself in. Do not open the door unless I respond verbally.’ Well now.”

From beyond the door, they heard faint scratches. “Could be rats…”

“Somehow I doubt it. Son, hand me my crossbow and let’s put poor Mr. Lefebre out of his misery.”
