It was my plan to keep writing this story offline once Six Sentence Sunday ended earlier this year, but the truth is it just wasn’t getting done. So, in order to actually make progress, Revenant is back. And with 8 sentences per week it should move along at little faster than it did in the previous format.
For those of you who haven’t seen this story before you can catch up on everything that’s happened to our heroes, Ryan and Kassandra, as they prepare to step onto a zombie filled earth in search for the cure to the terrible disease that has brought humanity to the edge of extinction. All you need to do is follow this link.
The pair stepped onto the roof of the pharamacogenetic research centre where, more than a century ago, Kassandra and her team developed the genetic modifications that so devastated humanity. The research centre consisted of a single building, arranged in a star shape with each of its seven three storey arms connected to a five storey hub beneath their feet. The roof afforded them a wonderful view over the now overgrown grounds and out to the city beyond.
Ryan braced the rifle on his shoulder and moved to the side, all the while scanning the sight line for any sign of movement. Kassandra, steel bar in hand, jogged along beside him in silence.
As soon as he was certain the roof was clear, he signalled to the pilot who immediately lifted off. With luck, they’d be back in a few hours with the samples Kassandra needed.
The complete lack of any noise was eerie.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my contribution to this week’s list, and thanks for stopping by.
