I strap on my VR headset, my mate places headphones over my ears and threads my hands through the strings of the controls. They clear the area, anticipating my lunging, bending, throwing, running?
I step into a bunker and walk slowly around getting used to the controls, easing myself through the paces. I take a tape and find a VCR to slot it into. Now, I’m transported, lost in the Arizona sunshine. I can almost feel the heat from the relentless sun beating down on me and I’m awkwardly waiting for a zombie to show itself.
I look around and find a well placed gun on the edge of a table. I’m in a campsite and the bows of cotton tents sweep above me. There are empty barrels and a small one person tent caught up in it all. I look to my left and looming in the distance is a screen, with the words ‘PLAY’ and I think, why the hell not? I aim my gun, I fire.
I think my mates are speaking to me, but I can’t hear them, they are just fuzzy noises in the background and I am here, in Arizona. Amidst the scraggly dry mountains and sickly warm winds that I swear are brushing my arms. The game has begun. I look around frantically, which direction will they come from? Is it random? I don’t know, I’m new to this. I’ve still got my gun and it’s hanging on the end of my tense arm. I’ve got one eye closed, as if that will help my aim, but I don’t see anything to aim at! I feel that I would go mad out here.
I look down and I have a holster strapped around my waist, it has a grenade attached and I think that will come in useful later, if I make it that far. The distant wavering of my friends voices are louder now and I jolt my head upright. I don’t see anything, what is going on, why the commotion? Oh, there it is. Staggering slowly towards me, it’s arms outstretched and with my arm raised, I clench my fist tight, I fire.
Now there’s more of them and they are coming from all directions and I’m panicking. I’m moving as fast as I can, swinging my body from side to side. Shooting, bam, bam, bam, click. I’m out of ammo, shit. I rush to the table and there are mags resting on the edge, I grab them greedily and thrust them into my pistol. But, they are in the tent area now and I’m sweating more and they are getting closer, bam, bam, bam. Wave One, over.
I take a moment, I’m exhausted and scared. Wave Two is starting and my legs feel like jelly and I think how unprepared I am for a zombie apocalypse. There they are again, heads bobbing on the horizon, meandering towards. They are always so deceptively slow, until they’re not and it’s too late. I shoot, bam, bam, bam, click. I need more ammo, from my holster? I reach down and grab wildly at my belt. I look up and they are so close now. I can almost feel the breath from its dead mouth. It’s eyes are hollow, it’s skin is grey and decaying and it is limping, struggling towards me, with all of its might. I close my eyes, what else can I do?
