Undead Drive-Thru

For a little free zombie fiction, enjoy these excerpts from Rebecca Besser’s novella Undead Drive-Thru

Excerpt – Undead Drive-Thru – Chapter 3 – Home Life

Almost instantly, Sam rose up on all fours and crawled as fast as his decaying body would allow him, toward the door. Dead, dry skin stretched and broke and body fluid leaked out, seeping into his clothes. The knees of his pants turned a orangish color from the blood and pus that ran freely from his new wounds. His pinky finger on his left hand snapped with an audible crack and bent at a grotesque angle, allowing more blood and pus to escape from his rotting body.

The sound of the breaking appendage caused John to look up from the lock and take notice of the danger that was rapidly approaching. With a barked exclamation of a profanity, John braced the cage door with his body so Sam wouldn’t get out when he slammed into it – he was just glad Sam hadn’t gotten to his feet . . . yet.

“Get something to hold the door shut!” John yelled over his shoulder to Aunt-B. “The latch is broken!”

Sam’s weight hit the steel bars with enthusiasm, causing the heavy, steel mesh stretched between them to shudder violently – he was close to the fresh blood he sought and there was nothing covering his mouth to stop him from enjoying it. Using the diamond shaped mesh to drag himself to a half-standing position, Sam reached through the slot left open for feeding and grabbed a hold of John’s belt, roughly and instantly drawing him closer to the door.
