Excerpt - Zombie Love

It was a beautiful morning, just gorgeous. I was sitting back in my no-gravity lounge chair holding a cup of hot coffee and sipping away the sunrise. The temperature was just right and the plants along the front screen of the porch seemed to reach toward the warm glow of the sun. This was a day that made all the other days’ worth dealing with. It whispered relaxation and creativity.

The only thing I couldn’t get my mind around on this glorious day was the zombie that was trying to open the latch on the screen door. I’d been watching it for a good ten minutes or so, just as it was watching me drink my coffee. My question: Where the hell had this thing come from? And why was it ruining my perfectly quiet morning?

This one I was looking at was none too bright. It could easily punch through the screen, but instead, it fiddled with the sliding lock. I’d heard about these things. A bit short on brains. But then again, who knew? Maybe it thought I was stupid for drinking coffee. I’d thought that one or two times myself.

Just then I heard a voice. “Hey man, what’s that you got there trying to get into your house?”

It was my neighbor, Monroe. We were pretty close on most days. “Gots me a zombie, me thinks,” I replied after a nice long coffee swig.

Monroe, standing back from the door but still close enough to talk through the screen continued. “What’s ya gonna do when it figures out the door?” He yawned.

“Hmmm. Good point,” I said with a nod. “Guess I better go get the gun so I can take care of business if I need to.”

Monroe was nodding as well. “Terrible way to spend this beautiful morning, though. Still, zombies are nothin’ to mess with. So I heard.”

“Maybe wait a little while, though,” I said. “It’s too nice out to make things all blood and guts. We got time.”

“I hear ya,” answered Monroe.

Then suddenly, another voice erupted through the morning. “Outta the way, boys!”

At that point a woman and a teenage girl raised rifles and blew holes in the zombie’s head. The thing fell like a rock.

Both Monroe and I jumped back to keep from getting muck on our clothes. I’d had to roll out of my chair, and I spilled my coffee.

“Dam women!” I yelled out. “Know just how to ruin a morning!”


About the Author:

Dinah is also a practicing certified hypnotist with her practice centering on past-life regression, alien abductions, and other paranormal topics.

Writing Paranormal Flash is a guilty pleasure and she finds herself in the middle of these quick and ghosty stories more often than she likes to admit.
