Evan Potter's POV
"Captain, we couldn't find the high school girl everywhere" Tyler Smith said as he was sweating because they were chased by those zombies outside. Tyler Smith couldn't imagine that if those zombies have intelligence of a normal human have... his scalp turned cold and numb.
"Then, at least, you know which school she was, right?" Evan Potter asked. He wanted to recruit that high school girl to his team and use her in the frontline. Anyway, the zombies couldn't touch that high school girl which is better than recruiting a weak one who always needs protection. His team is not created for babysitting and he doesn't want a vase for display only.
"Yes, when we reached Divonne Academy, the school was surrounded by zombies but there are some survivors there. Fortunately, we didn't wear our military uniform. Otherwise, they will force themselves on us. Humans are scarier than zombies" Tyler Smith answered as he told Evan Potter of their situation earlier.
Divonne Academy was the largest high school academy and only few privileged children could enter. They had three departments which are for primary, secondary and tertiary students. Psyche Flint belonged to the secondary department which had four grades such as grade 7, 8, 9, and 10 and her class was Class 8A. This class has six subjects per day or one subject for one hour such as English, Science, Mathematics, History, MAPEH (music, arts, physical ed. and health) and Information Technology. These subjects let the Divonne Academy ranked higher than any other academies.
Psyche Flint is just a simple and approachable girl but her high IQ scared the teachers out of their wits. There was even a moment during Mathematics class. The teacher was discussing about Geometry and Psyche Flint was dozing off. The mathematics teacher was angry and called her name to solve a problem. The teacher used the most difficult problem for high school students but was easily answered by Psyche Flint. The teacher was stunned and never called her name again.
Psyche Flint was only dumb, clumsy and timid in front of his youngest brother as she was always worried of him since they were a kid. That's why Zack Flint or their parents don't know that she has a high IQ of a wolf with sheep skin. Also, she's not faking it as it always happened every time she thought of her younger brother and parents. So, who would have thought that she's a genius?
She was loved but at the same time, hated by the students. Even some teachers hated her because they felt that she was looking down on them. This happened when Psyche Flint asked every teacher of mathematical equations she slightly didn't understand. What she didn't know was that, the every mathematical equation she asked, are not part of high school syllabus nor college syllabus but practice by mathematicians. If you are the teacher, what will you feel then? Horrible, right? but she didn't know and doesn't know of these.
Still, the teachers were upright people and the other staffs were accommodating towards the students' needs and security. However, the apocalypse unveiled their mask and it was witnessed by Tyler Smith and co.
Evan Potter tapped his point-finger on the table while contemplating. He couldn't believe that there is someone who is on par with his school-life experience. Yes, Evan Potter right now is thinking of Pscyhe Flint's achievement, but not thinking of a plan to find her...for now.
"CAPTAIN! CAPTAIN! CAPTAIN!" Garry Vallens shouted from outside the study room while Evan Potter frowned as he felt that something unexpected will happen.
And, that unexpected... are the zombies outside are forcing themselves to enter the building they used as a base now. They blocked the entranced tightly but still, the zombies could enter the building easily like there was no blockade before. Gabrielle Collins followed behind Garry Vallens while Ariel Montes and Zeke Santos followed behind Gabrielle Collins.
"How could they enter?" Tyler Smith couldn't believe of what he had seen outside. They already blocked the entrance tightly that almost an insect couldn't enter.
"How would we even know? I was inspecting my laptop to check the signal if I could enter the internet but failed to do so until we heard those groaning noises so we looked out through the window by using the telescope. We were shocked to see many zombies forcing their way on the entrance door" Gabrielle explained as he felt aggrieved of his failed inspections.
"Strange. We didn't let ourselves expose to them so how could they know we are here?" Ralph Spencer asked with a low tone. The others nodded as they also felt something wrong but why?
"If I found the person who did this, I will punish him severely" Evan Potter sternly said and gaze on everyone. They quiet own and started to analyze situation as to why the zombies are forcing themselves inside.
"They are attracted to noises, human scents and...?" Zeke Santos mumbled as he ponder.
"uhmmmm... Why are you bleeding, Captain?" Ariel Montes asked when he noticed a blood stained on his arm. Everyone looked at Evan Potter's blood stain, then, looked at each other.
"Human blood" Ralph Spencer said and they realized the source of problem. Evan Potter coughed awkwardly and stood up. "Let's pack up. I found a dog hole earlier. Let's use that to escape from here" he said and turned around immediately while everyone laughed at him.
Psyche Flint reached the Marketplace Mall nearby Divonne Academy. Her stomach groaned as she felt hunger. Her gaze swept around to check if there are zombies or people hiding but didn't see anyone so she entered the marketplace. It was almost afternoon when the apocalypse started and now, it is past twelve o'clock on the afternoon, that's why there are many scattered vegetables and fruits on each stalls. Anyone could guess what have happened inside marketplace. Like, a strong earthquake shook the whole mall which damage the goods inside.She went to the can goods shelves to look for the ready-made foods. Psyche Flint gasped as she saw each shelves emptied. Fortunately, her aunt's friend's daughter invited her fo
Her falling accident made a noise and attracted many zombies when she heard their suffocating groans. She wanted to test herself if all zombies will really ignore her forever like she's not existing at all. Unfortunately, she couldn't do the test because a white blanket blocked her sight and wrapped it around her body. She felt a hand grab her wrist and pulled her up forcefully. She was shocked of this person's strength. Another hand wrapped around her waist to guide to the safe area. She couldn't resist as she knows that resisting is not an option at all. If she does and the zombies caught up but ignored her, she couldn't explain her situation. Even, she doesn't know why so how could she explain logically?Well
Darwin Kim leads Psyche Flint to the temporary refuge for the survivors, the underground mall."No wonder he found me there" Psyche Flint thought and frowned as she looked around and saw many exhausted and dispirited survivors inside. They are slouching on the wall, hugging their family, sleeping for a short time than a human usually does, and wary of each other's greediness.The area's population was reduced to one-fourth of the area's total population from before the apocalypse."What is your survival pl
"What happened?!" Andrea Su asked loudly as her brows furrowed. She was about to report to her superior that there's a strange woman entered the camp easily despite the zombie barrage outside the refugee's camp.The camp is surrounded by many zombies outside as they are looking for their prey. The human scents brought them here. However, the thick and sturdy wall that served as a gate couldn't let them enter at will.They could only groan like hungry wolves. Which is why, Andrea Su is curious of Psyche Flint's identity. Only her superior's family can enter and exit the camp without anyone's permission with a group of bodyguards.
Lincoln Joe tilted his head as he looked at Lincoln Joe with confusion.“Cough.. Cough.. I’m Psyche” Psyche Flint introduced herself without including her family name.She intentionally exclude her family name, not because of her family’s reputation nor wealth but because she wanted to survive silently. Even if the zombies are ignoring her presence or she’s not edible for zombies’ stomachs, she still wanted to survive the apocalypse silently without letting other people know her uniqueness.She shook her head when she imagined being a lab rats for the apocalypse sci
“Yes, It’s me. Your Grandpa Su” the old man smiled. Psyche Flint still couldn’t believe it. This grandpa Su still alive after five years and his countenance is still the same five years ago!“Grandpa Su, why are you here? My Flint Family is on the other side” Psyche Flint was confused. Grandpa Su was her grandpa Flint’s friend.They were childhood friends and many become their victims of bullying, not physically but financially. It was the reason why many people feared the Grandpa Flint. He could bully other people alone, which was fine. They could still have breathing but Grandpa Su was with him together – which scared away many enemies of Flint and Su F
On the second day of Apocalypse, the Supermarket Mall is still surrounded by many zombies. They are not the only survivors. There are some survivors from other areas like who hide inside the Gas Station storage room. Fortunately, the station has a gate which prevented the zombies on entering the area. Because of this, they can come and go anytime without the surprise attack of zombies. However, foods and drinks are the main point of survival. They have to look for food in order to accumulate enough strength to fight against them.On the other side of the city, there is an area where many survivors gathered. They have many foods and drinks but not enough for everyone to survive for four months. The only way to survive is to look for another warehouse – full of
Psyche Flint sighed and sat down on the sofa with lotus mediation seating posture which relaxed her from outside world. It is one of the Flint Family’s traditions to use breathing technique to set free the mind from worries or stress.However, Psyche Flint didn’t notice the sudden changes around her. The trees swayed, not because of the wind but because of the natural Qi. The thin thread of natural Qi entered her meridian below the belly.For Psyche Flint, the natural Qi is so warm until she almost felt hot like steam spring. However, she doesn’t feel uncomfortable but made her mind relax more. Her pores opened and sweats came out with black dirt.
