I spent 3 years in the midwest. 3 years looking For something that only existe my
granfather‘ s crazed stories. He said he lound the book 10 years alter the infection. What I
didn' t know was that he was with Taylor all along.
A Page was placed in front of the first, in the
we spent weeks searching For Taylor and Jess all over the surrounding areas. we were in
Arizona and there was nothing. The buildings had all been burned to the
ground, and the people: gone.
Brandi and I walked for miles in each direction Just trying to find a trace of them before I
lound Joseph' s dog tags. I remember Taylor telling me how he met Joseph callaway and
how he gave Taylor his dog tags. This was it for us, we were Finally going to find him.
At long last I found Taylor, he didn' t look any different, but he didn' t seem to want to talk.
I couldn' t see Jess, but I asked Taylor if he had kept more on his Journal and he said he
did. But he couldn' t write anymore in the one I had picked up off of the ground in the lab in
where we lost Peter.
is what he had written. The only of his I know about.

I have tried my best to keep writing. My hands get even more stw every day. Jess' trail
ran cold last night. I couldn' t help but think that something bad has happened to her.
she is strong, but those men back at that building seemed to know more than they let
It has been a lew days since I leld Joseph and the others. Jess ran ahead of me trying to
get away because she knew, Just like I did, that we wouldn' t survive. we had to find load
and we had to find it quick.
Last night I found our food, the only food for miles. I waited For Jess to come back to Join
me but she never did. I ate about half of what was left of him before I went back to
looking For her. I ran as fast as I could towards where she had been running. Jess had
left a scent behind that I could smell. It ended about 50 feet from an easi near the
I looked around for anything I could find, but all I could see was blood. It wasn' t her
blood but there was no sign of them or her near the treeline. I knelt down and looked
through the Brush. There was nothing.

I still can' t find Jess. I saw 2 infected having a least on some young g . she had to only
be about 10, and they were tearing her apart. I heard her screams and it seems strange,
but I lint care. I' m starting to think since this change that I' leld my humanity
I never explained what happened to me when that vial broke. I ran away. It broke in my
pocket and the crazed insanely strong infected that I was became stronger... Faster.
Jess ran out before me and I followed her. Melt the urge to eat more and more. The
hunger was welling up inside of me and I was starting to slow down. I leld weeker and I
couldn' t quite keep up with Jess.
I gave it my all to find a meal, but try the time I lound one, I had Lost Jess.
Bach to the girl, anyway. I heard her scream and I could only think of how much I
wanted to least with them. My stomach wanted to eat, but my legs Just kept running
alter where I thought Jess was.
I' m squatting next to a smothered tire. I haven' t been able to see in the light as well
lately, so I' kept to traveling as much as I can at night. I have to keep lg though,
it keeps me from going crazy. Jess isn' t here to keep me company, and neither are Ryan

This morning I heard loud screams mixed with roars of immense agony. I listened to the
screams For a lew moments before real "lg that they were Jess'. she was somewhere to
the East, and I thought she was being attacked.
I followed the sound until I saw her lighting on 3 infected. I squatted down to watch her. I
didn' t want to jump into the light until I knew she wouldn' t mistake me for another
infected. she grabbed the first try the throat while the second grabbed her leg. she threw
the first against a tree crippling it. she shook the second on of her leg For a moment
before the third jumped at her. The first Just stayed slumped at the Base of the tree. The
third latched onto the back of her neck with its extremely large teeth. The
second jumped up at her lace, and she was able to shoot a straight punch connecting
w ts skull. its skull nearly exploded from the force of the blow and it shot back into the
small pond. The third was tearing at her neck and I knew she wouldn' t be able to get it
I jumped out of the Brush and grabbed the infected try the leesh of its cheek. I swung my
other hand at the back of its head and grabbed onto it. I tore the leesh of its cheek into
pieces as I crushed the back of his skull with my other hand. The back of it split and
started "lg its contents all over my arm and the ground. I took it try the neck and
threw it to the ground. I jumped up and landed on top of him with my list blown through its
Jess looked at me, beautiful as ever. I took her in my arms and I kissed her as gently as
I could. My urge to eat subsided just then and Melt stronger I asked Jess why she kept
going alter I lound Food, but she Just looked up into the sky. I saw a small formation of
stars and I recalled them From a television show I saw about a year below the infection
started. It was Draon' s Belt, and Jess turned to me alturl looked up. she whispered to
me and told me that she leld the need because someone was in danger at the oasis.
When she got there she saw the 3 infected surrounding a young woman in her Ros, Just
like Jess and I. Jess jumped in front of the woman and she roared as loud as she could
at them. Probably the roark heard. Jess picked her up and she jumped around 15 feet
toward the trees. she let the woman go, and proceeded to lend on the infected that
I' m Just so happy I lound her again its hard to feel with everything going on, but I truely
love her. I truely do.

It was today when I saw a familiar lace. My Brother walked try me and looked me in the
eyes. He came right up to me and held out his hand. I took my hand and I placed it on
his, but it went right through. He disappeared alter that.
My mind is always racing and I can only speculate at best that I' m hallucinating things
that I wish were true. I want so badly to believe that my Brother came back For me, that
he didn' t leave me and he is here For me but I can' t.
Jess was no more than 15 yards away from me when it happened. I asked her if she
saw anything and she said she hadn' t. I think I' m going crazy but I can' t help but reach
out, waiting For him to come back. His eyes looked Just as blue as they were when he
looked at me For the last time. His hair slightly messy like it always was.
I iss my Brother. I everything that was, below the infection started. Jess and I
were talking about our Fami ies again and if they could see us now. Jess cracked a
icke, Just like herself. she said that if her dad could see her, he' d probably shoot her.
not much of a joke but the best we can do knowing we' ll never be the same again.
Year 1 Day "
We Just heard a few cries for help. Jess and I have decided to
make our curse a blessing and help those in need. Those who
are being attacked, those in fights for their lives. We Need to be
better than them. We need to fight For our humanity and we
need to end this.
we ran East For about a mile when we came up on a lew trees.
we jumped up into them trying not to make too much noise. we
looked down to see Ryan and Brandi staring right into the gullet
of a monster.
