12 Days in Hell
He tried to run past her to call the cops but she grabbed his ankle and he tripped and
fell hard onto the wooden floor. He gained the upper hand by kicking her in the stomach.
He had never fought anyone in his life, and here he was fighting his undead wife for
He ran into the bathroom and locked the door.
She was soon outside it, breathing heavy and wild, banging on it and making
chattering sounds with her teeth. Danny looked all around the room to see what he could
find as a weapon to defend himself.
The fact that he was going to have to kill his wife started to sink in. He felt an
intense pain in his gut, and he found it hard to swallow.
He looked under the sink and found a large wrench that he had used to tighten the
water valves on the toilet.
It's do or die he thought to himself as he raised the wrench above his head and

telling how riots were starting, in numerous places all across the map. From the
Carolina's to California, it was like all the country was taking a turn straight to hell.
Loved ones attacking each other, even children eating the flesh of their parents.

Danny couldn't believe all of this had been happening while he slept. There should
have been warnings and sirens—he shouldn't have had to just wake up next to the wild
beast that was once his loving wife.
His heart was broken and he wished that he could die. He never had it in his heart to
Now his simple life had turned into a struggle for survival.
Danny sat in the corner of the room feeling sorry for himself, something he had
