****Previous installment of Vivid Black – Absconded

Max grinned as he twirled the sweaty beer bottle and mentally marveled. He took the zombie walk fad exploding in cities and twisted it’s ear. Zombie Gauntlet Challenge had all the trappings; “zombies”, “normals”, mindless shuffling and terrified screaming.

The first challenge had a handful of players with fist bumps and cold brews at the end. Now, a revolution with hundreds. Max set routes to avoid pissing off the “Jones’” or the shop owners. Zombies do what zombies do and normals try to avoid them.

Unexpectedly, real death appeared.

He expected it to change things.

It did.

More people started playing.


Back with Lance at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog to play with LeeRoy’s 100 Word Challenge. This week’s song “Revolution” by the Beatles inspired this post.

    Whoa, wait a minute. Are the zombies real? Is this some sort of “kill the zombies” game? Or am I missing the whole thing?

      Still working the whole story out in my head. I’ll stick with this one for a while. Thanks for stopping by.

    Yep, you’re persuading me that zombie stories might not be so bad!


  3. Woah! It sounds like he expected real death to drive people away, and instead it just drew them in closer.

    The bigger the thrill, the larger the lure? Like it!

    Like a modern day battle of gladiators. I fear you’re right, a real zombie hunt would be immensely popular.
