I called to Maria, telling her to head into the side streets, that I would meet her on the other side. I wasn’t sure if she heard me because by that time the zombie had broken into a run, arms outstretched, and I was trying to keep ahead, struggling to out-pace it. I saw it slip away from me and I started to slow, turning to look ahead for the first time.
Those sidestreets, that I was sure were empty of the monsters?
I was wrong.
On Thursday we took part in 2.8 Hours Later, a London Zombie Apocalypse LARP. A ton of fun.
