Zombies by the Sea – Excerpt 39
Then Samira came up to him, kissed him on the cheek and said, ‘Hello Daddy, did you miss me? I was fine, the Mayor was taking care of me, we are friends.’ Sanjay looked even more stunned, all the colour had drained from his face, he looked on the verge of a heart attack. Samira’s statement had rocked him to the core. she had been his favourite daughter and now it seemed she was his enemy’s plaything.
What had he done wrong, he was always good to her, she was probably too spoilt if anything, was that the problem, had he made her too independent. Did she now think that she could dishonour her family and do as she intended, whatever that was?
He didn’t understand women, he had always been the master in his own house, or so he thought, but now he was beginning to have doubts. Had he driven his daughter away, and if this be the case, how had it happened?
‘Come on Sanjay.’ Cried the Mayor, beckoning to him, ‘Let’s get this show on the road!’ So saying he cut the riband that signalled the start of the Zombie’s Parade, if parade is the right word to describe a mass of staggering blood-spitting Zombies.
The Zombies started to stagger down the Main Street, Sam Parry’s spies immediately rang and informed him of their numbers and whereabouts so that the trap could be set. ‘It was all or nothing!’ announced Sam Parry, ‘None to escape, no prisoners to be taken, this was war to the death against the undead!’
