Beloved

What are you willing to do for the one you love?

This short takes place during the early stages of the zombie apocalypse in the year 2053. the first year of The Dead War. 

BELOVED: Dead War Series Flash Fiction By George L. Cook III

Grover looked on as the naked female zombie gnawed on the femur of her latest victim. Blood and grime covered her entire torso. Well what was left of it any way. Her abdomen had been ripped out and her entrails lay on the floor before her. One of her eyes had been torn out and her lips had been chewed off.

Grover sat quietly in the corner as the zombie soon realized that there was no more to eat. She looked over at Grover. She shrieked and lunged at him. 

The chain around her neck yanked her back to the floor. Grover had long ago chained her there. 

She reached out toward him moaning softly.

Grover smiled. “ Still hungry beloved?”

The zombie moaned loudly and began yanking on the chain.

Grover stood up and put on the poor boy style hat he had been holding in his hands.“ I’ll go get you something else to eat.” 

The zombie calmed down as if it understood and sat as if it were a dog.

Grover looked at her lovingly. “ Till death do us part.”

He turned from her as tears rolled down her face. 

He started toward the door to get more “food” for his beloved.
