    Final Curtain

    How do you describe hell?


    How would you describe Heaven?


    What if i told you that the pit of Fire you pictured was an illusion, and it's all just the same old same old?

    I've been trapped in this town. 47 years I've been trapped, unable to escape, but finally, the world moves once again. The world changes. I see people walking the streets again. At long last i saw a child.

    Confused? You would be. You haven't seen what lies behind the Final Curtain.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It was mid morning. It was a normal day, everyone lounging around the house, my brother playing his games, and i taking a catnap on the couch. Then father came in from the Lawn. He was stumbling, his head in a fog. I rose to comfort him, and found him in the kitchen, cutting a strange meat.

    "Dad are you all......" she said before he swung about, his entire front covered in blood, and the knife, dripping, held like scalpel.

    "yes dear I'm fine,"he started in an unnatural voice, "if you could get the seasoning salts i have a new animal for us to try... it comes from New Zealand"

    Being an obedient Daughter, she grabbed the Seasoning, and then she felt a sharp pain in her back. it shot through her chest and as she looked down she saw the knife protruding between her breasts.

    the pain exploded,she collapsed, and there was nothing.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------


    She became conscious again.

    she didn't feel tired, so she moved to get up. The world spun. she tried to catch herself on a chair, but her hand caught air. she stopped, the world stopped, and she looked around her. after she got her bearings, she studied her environment. it was the same kitchen. the blood all over the counter, but there was now more blood on the ground at her feet. Police all over, and a familiar shape on the table.

    she walked over and looked, and gasped. it was her. hard to identify with all the blood, and the missing swathes of flesh and the opened chest cavity. it was as though an animal had eaten her.

    The police swarmed about, and then, their radios all lit up at once. they all looked pale and weary, and left, leaving everything as it was. then she looked in the living room. there were more bodies, her brother, her father, and her mother. all headless, shot repeatedly, and in very weird positions.

    she looked back into the kitchen at a sound from the table. her arm was moving.


    she stared in shock as the thing that was clearly dead began to get up, pop it's head back into place, and walked out of a hole where the couch used to be in the wall.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    After this, she had watched the fall of humanity. the dead killing the living, sweeping through the town. indeed it was mostly over when she had woken up. there was little she could do anyway.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    about a year after her death, she stopped seeing the deadwalkers walking around.

    most had simply rotted away within weeks, but others, held together by clothing or surgical hardware left over from their former lives, lasted quite longer. these were the ones who had eaten others, ones who had feasted fully.

    but now, 5 years later, there was nothing but the trees and the wind to keep her company. she spent each day walking... no... moving... she knew what she was. she didn't walk, she really didn't float either... but, she also knew she was alone. no one had died like her, at least in this town.


    she couldn't move anything, she couldn't be seen, by what she would be seen scared her, and she was slowly going insane

    She wandered the town this day, like any other day. the occasional dog darted playfully chasing a rodent. you see, cats had been killed during the event, as most humans believed they served little purpose to a survivalist, other than to serve with a light salad, so to speak. so there were few of those, but there were thousands of ownerless dogs. see, dogs proved immune to the disease. and with their feirce loyalty, they were bred in large numbers, in vain it seemed, but they flourished with the high amount of food that was left for them when their masters eventually died.

    but she'd learned this all before, knew it all so well.so she believed that the simple inability to stop repeating the lessons she'd learned in her head as punishment. well, this day it helped her, for as she was reciting the twelfth rule ofr the deadwalkers, a strange thing came into view. a line in the sky, the likes of which she'd forgotten. but she felt her spirit lift, and she stopped reciting.

    She wracked her brain for the next two days, trying to remember what that line was, what it meant. she then stumbled on the local airport. a grassy field now, with piles of twisted wrecks of what used to be airplanes. she then had a massive headache as memories rush back. she'd seen those lines back when she had been alive, and not since.

    She started watching the sky every day. no longer walking aimlessly. she wanted to believe it had been real. she got her wish a few days later, when the contrail appeared, this time accompanied be dozens more, rising from the horizon of the south and finally ending directly overhead. then she heard a massive noise, as though the wind of a thousand hurricanes blew at once, and there it was, the metal monstrocity. it was an ancient plane, a c-5, very big, but it was modified to land vertically.

    It chose to land in the field she was in, and so she moved out to the broken down hanger buildings.

    She watched as the aircraft rested heavily on the dirt, and listened to the roaring engines as they slowly powered down.

    She could see plainly markings on the steel exterior, but they were too far away. She found sudden apprehension at the sight of the doors opening up, and ducked into one of the hangars.

    She began to think to herself, and realized that they wouldn't be able to see her anyway, so why did she care? She turned and looked into the hangar, and, although she'd seen scenes like this for years, she still never gotten used to this. There were skeletons, some headless, some simply shredded, but the sheer number of them.... they littered the hangar, and the wings of a small aircraft. The story here was apparent. as she had became distracted, she followed the trail of headless corpses to an office in the back of the hangar. there was a pile of bones several bodies thick, and a shut door.

    She'd seen this scenario play out several times before as well.

    She went through the door and found a predictable scene, with a makeshift bed in the corner, Skeletal remains in a chair next to the bed and a smaller skeleton, probably a child, with a bullet hole in the front of the scull.

    She wept.

    She didn't know how long she cried, but she was interrupted by a loud noise.

    Bang bang bang.

    "US National Guard is anyone alive in there!" a voice from the other side of the door.

    Without thinking, she responded.

    "Yes"

    "Ok we are going to break down the door please stand back" the voice said.

    The door caved through, slamming against the wall and kicking up all the dust in the room. The soldiers scanned the room and after a few moments, lowered their weapons.

    "What?" one said

    "I swear i heard someone" The other said

    "I know you did, i heard her too. did she hide?" the first one said

    "Show yourself We are here to help" the second said in his best calm voice.

    "That may prove difficult" She said, and both soldiers looked in her direction, but she could tell they couldn't see her.

    "Hey what's going on in here?" a third soldier looked in

    "Hey Mic, get in here, you got a more friendly demeanor, and we got a hider." the first soldier said.

    "Ye daft?" the soldier referred to as Mic, said, "She's standing right a fore ye."

    "Mic, you're the one who's daft. There's nobody here." the first soldier said and walked out

    "Missy, what's ye name." Mic said to her.

    "I.....don't remember...." she responded.

    "Mic, who are you talking to? all i see are two people who died of self inflicted gunshot wounds, sad story i know. I thought i heard a voice, must have been a ghost." he said with a chuckle.

    "I think you're right Carl. but it's no laughing matter. I've seen these before. These are living souls. They died during the early stages of the cleansing. these people are real as anyone else."

    "What are you saying Mic, that there's thousands of these things running around on earth? and they are just as alive and sane as everyone else?" Carl said incredulously.

    "My old CO figured out a way for people to see them." he said, and handed a small device to Carl, "shine that in your eye and blink three or four times."

    After doing so, Carl's eyes locked on the figure standing before them.

    "So.....it's true then. What you said's true." Carl said.

    Ignoring him, Mic extended a hand to the girl, and she took it. She could feel the warmth of his hand, and surprisingly, he didn't pass through her.

    "I come from a long line of churchmen missy, and if ye wish we can get you out of here, to a place we've prepared for those such as yeself." Mic said, which drew another look from Carl.

    "Next your going to tell me your part of some secret society and your whole mission is to save the ghosts is that right?" Carl said jokingly.

    "Yes, Carl, it's called the Catholic Church. After the devastation, the church leaders discovered these ghosts and have been working to integrate them into society. they are living souls that cannot be let into heaven for some reason. we aim to figure out why by study and practical usage of them as the lord's servants. These individuals can actually be quite useful as they have access to the spiritual realm." Mic unexpectedly explained as he carried the ghost, as a father would carry a child to the aircraft.

    "Lieutenant McAllister, report." A combat scarred man in desert BTU's standing on the bottom of the ramp yelled

    "Two norms in a room looks like they barricaded themselves and died later. No evidence of looting. Some tire tracks in the vicinity, they read about a month old. Headed off to the west. found a fuel supply in the north hangar, area is clear of walkers." Mic said, speaking clearly and without accent

    "Understood. Unit three has radioed in with a small nest of live birds located. looks like this area's plague free at this time. Tell the pilot to send to the ship for the colonists. Is that one of the Ghosts you and Havoc found?"

    "Yes sir, she's disoriented and confused, but she's docile and fit for transport."

    "Understood lieutenant, You can give her a seat in the forward mess on the plane, we're out of here when three gets back"

    For those who couldn't see her, it was unusual, but in these days not uncommon to see, two officers seeing to the well being of the unseen.

    Most soldiers had been deployed, redeployed, and redeployed again to resettlement zones all across the globe, and this was all routine to them.

    A small percentage of humanity, less than one percent, survived the greatest plague to strike the earth. The Cleansing, as it was called ironically, was an attempt at engineering a virus to attack other viruses. It was designed to spread to the earth's populace as quickly as possible, and resist drugs that would be in the systems of normal people.

    It was developed from the rabies virus, and as it mutated, it began taking on the same qualities.

    It had already infected 80% of the world before going deadly.

    However, the quick onset of the disease had caused an unexpected side effect. People's bodies would die, and their souls would live on, due to the sudden nature of their deaths. This happened in a dramatically high number of cases.

    of course it was 5 or so years since the fall of the human race in less than a month, and so these spirits had been wandering around for some time.

    The few survivors of the human race had been naval servicemen and women who'd been at sea, told by their governments to make for the center of the ocean and steer clear of land to rebuild the human race. For 5 years they had waited, a fleet of ten aircraft carriers, 35 destroyers, 12 submarines, and assorted other cruisers, passenger liners(those few that weren't ghost ships) and shipping vessels had basically created a floating fortress in the south pacific.

    Now, those rusting ships had begun the journey to find habitable land, and had started in Hawaii.

    That is where we are now, She mused, thinking to herself the effort the soldiers put in making everything right for the settlers.

    This was already settled land, what do they have left to do?

    The engines kicked on, and Mic showed up, with an odd device.

    "Almost forgot, hold this in your lap until we land, it'll make it so the plane can lift you." he said handing the small electronic device that glowed green along the edges. She felt weight in her limbs for the first time in several years.
