Drabble: Origin


“Some did fight back, survived in the face of huge odds. A handful survived quite a while – a few for generations, even. But their numbers were ecologically insignificant months after the Event.

“With their natural food source exhausted, the death toll was enormous. The zombies very nearly followed in the humans’ footsteps. But unlike the humans, our ancestors adapted to the new conditions!”

The provost frowned, a bit of skin dropping off his lower lip. “An interesting theory. But unnecessary, not to mention blasphemous. Every child knows Romero the father created zombies at the beginning of time. ‘Humans!’ How laughable.”
