Warnings Zombies.... Wait.... Character death. And zombies.
He was nine the first time it happened. He and his brother were watching CN, when an announcement came on, interrupting the mindless colour and noise.
They were snapped out of their stupor by the nervous-looking reporter on the screen.
"Mom!" he had called, "Mom, there's a stupid announcement interrupting Transformers!"
"Hush." his mother had scolded "Don't say stupid." She sat down and listened to the man.
At the time he didn't understand what had been going on, only hearing a few words in between his mindless imaginary games, His brother, however, in middle school, did understand most of it, watching the television in a stunned rapture.
The next day they had bought canned foods along with a rush of strangers, and put boards across all the windows of their house.
He had helped his mother, still not really understanding what was happening, by handing her 2x4's and nails. His brother spent his time with a notebook and a pen, writing.
"What are you writing?" he had asked, after the house was 'complete' as per his mother.
"Well," Gerard started excitedly "what would happen if we die? I mean, people, at one point, would need to get into our house, right? I mean, it may be a long time from now and they may not know what had happened! So, with my book, they'll be able to know! What do you think?"
"But..." he hesitated "Why would we die?"
Gerard grinned "Zombies." and turned the notebook around.
Sure enough, right there, on the front cover, in childish scrawl, were the words 'Gerard's Zombie Survival Guide'.
Within a month all the undead were taken care of. The government took the best doctors from around the world and set them to work on finding something, anything, to kill the terrors that were murdering the people. They got the solution. They said it would be permanent.
