Paralysis

by SirDolphin

It was never on the news.

One morning, the world seemed to be silent.

*We are currently experiencing technical difficulties, please stand by.*

the message flashed across television screens for days.

It happened whilst people were on their way to work, too- thanks to safety mechanisms, trains didn't crash but instead drove to a halt, their carriages still full.

Unable to move.

I've yet to meet somebody else who wasn't paralysed. On my search for food, I often raid the local 7/11's, supermarkets. They all lie there.

They're quieter than they used to be, but still talk occasionally.

It's been maybe a one and a half weeks, and they're starving.

I walked by a pale woman on the concrete with her child today. The child was dead, and she looked at me with a stale, pulled face. In a raspy, rattly voice, she kept saying what they always say-

*Don't leave me...*
