Drabble: Heroics


“You’ve got to keep quiet.”

“Where are you going?”

“Don’t worry. I’ll be back – I mean, I’ll try my best. I’m going to bring help, or at least supplies. You’ll be okay, as long as you keep still.”

“Ronald, please don’t leave us.”

“I’ll do my best. If– if I don’t come back, never forget: I’ve always loved you.”

He shut the door and stepped out.

A zombie shambled into his path.

“You there.”


“Shh, not so loud. Hey, you guys think you could tone it down? I just wanted to impress them; they’re scared out of their wits.”
