no one was prepared for the release of the virus, some people
never came into contact with those who were infected. Others
lived in accommodation that gave adequate protection against
the virus. Others just shut themselves inside converted
nuclear bunkers along with water and provisions and awaited
any signs of other survivors.
numbers of survivors left their bunkers early, only to become
infected and perish at a later date, perhaps bringing the
infection back to their families and friends still taking
refuge inside the bunkers.
course there was also a certain unknown percentage of people
who had a natural resistance to the virus. Perhaps more
of a curse than a gift, having to watch everyone they loved
die around them, being the only ones left.
civilian bunkers rarely held more than half a dozen members,
each most likely feeling the same sense of isolation –
are we all that’s left?
following is the diary of a young girl named Sarah Thomas,
a civilian survivor who took refuge in a neighbour’s
bunker shortly after the epidemic of 2006. Her location
is currently unknown.
