Last Man Alive
The man drove the car at it's full speed.
Raiden sat on the front right seat and the man on his left. He still couldn't believe his eyes that he really found a survivor. He just sat there glaring at the man. He wanted to talk to him but couldn't speak.
He forgot to speak in these past 5 years.
The man finally took his eyes off the road and gave Raiden a cheerful look. He looked more older than Raiden but his smile was even more childish.
"I can't believe my eyes," the man finally spoke up.
Raiden could relate and wanted to say same but words didn't come out of his mouth.
"Hey! just speak up something, I'm dying to hear a voice"
Raiden shifted his gaze off the man and took a deep breath, he tried mumming some words then fixed his gaze again on the man.
He opened his mouth a little, shifting his tongue up and down he tried to make a sentence out of it.
Then finally words came out from his mouth, "Dude are you for real?"
The man bursted out in laughter. Seeing him laugh like that Raiden also lost control of himself and laughed like crazy.
"Never knew in these 5 years something would sound so funny," the man said.
"Hahaha sure didn't,"
They both again looked at each other with a big smile and laughter.
"I legit thought that humanity has gone extinct but finally finding a survivor makes my heart feel relieved," Man said.
"Same dude, I thought I was the Last Man Alive on Earth but guess not." Raiden looked so happy that time, he forgot about all the world, the zombies and everything.
"I'm Raiden," he continued. "What's your name?"
"Joel" the man answered.
Their car kept taking turns every now and then. Left, right, straight, again left, once more left, they made their way around the big buildings and zombies were right behind their trails.
"So what are you doing here in hokkaido?" Raiden asked.
"What work do I have in this world other than exploring?"
"Haha that is certainly true."
"Well not just exploring but I also wanted to personally see that damned city from where it all began."
"So you are going to Tokyo?"
Raiden jabbed his thumb towards himself. "Well i can be your guide in this journey especially when i have nothing to do other than that."
"Thanks a lot, it will be a huge favor." Joel said, sarcastically.
"No problem man. I have lived alone in these past 5 years and every time I only wanted to meet a survivor. And finally now after these years i found a survivor, i won't lose sight of you so easily."
"Yeah yeah I won't let you die either."
"Haha you can become my bodyguard if you want "
Then they both kept laughing most of the time while roaming around the city as zombies chased them all the way.
Joel pointed towards the fuel tank. "It's time to stop I guess."
It was low, almost empty.
"They are right behind us, how do we lose them?" Raiden asked.
Joel boosted the car which made a large distance between the zombies and them. "I have a plan."
"Mind explaining?" Raiden asked as he searched for a seat belt but didn't find.
Joel took out a knife from underneath his seat. "Just wait and watch." He impaled his knife below the steering wheel where a space opened and different colors of wires hanged out from it.
Raiden couldn't see which wire he grabbed and cut with his knife but as soon as he did that a loud noise of beep came from the car. A never ending sound.
"You must have understood what we are going to do right?" Joel shouted in that loud beep noise.
"Yeah I pretty much have the idea," Raiden exclaimed.
They covered a lot distance from the zombies and drove with the full speed at the straight road.
A large building awaited them at the end of the road but the road continued by the left side of that large building.
They reached the building and Joel pushed the brakes and turned the car so it could face leftwards. "Hold tight," he screamed. The car slid through the road leaving the mark of dragged tires behind.
It came to a stop right outside the building.
Both of them made a jump for it and ran to the left where the road continued.
Raiden saw a glimpse of it what came coming from the left, a very big horde of zombies. That scene reminded him of the events which happened 5 years ago at the chamber. But he felt relieved at that moment as all zombies ran towards the car completely ignoring those two runners.
They covered a long way running and stopped when they exhausted themselves. Mainly Raiden was the exhausted one, Joel only stopped when he saw Raiden losing his breath.
Raiden hands on his knees, taking big amount of air in and out.
They both looked backwards. They couldn't see the car as zombies were all over it but could hear the sound of beep pretty clearly.
"Let's go," Joel whispered.
Raiden nodded and stood up, ready to go as far from the zombies.
They started their slow walk and went ahead.
Raiden starred at Joel still couldn't believe he found a survivor.
Now as they both walked on the ground Raiden could see Joel had a bigger height than him, he also had quite some muscles.
Short hairs, brown eyes, a clean shaved face, he was pretty good at maintaining his body as compared to Raiden.
It was noon and sun was above their heads. The scorching heat of the sun was unbearable. They walked for quite a while on the big and empty road.
It was then Raiden who spoke up. "There is a cafe up ahead we should rest there for a while"
"Yeah," Joel agreed. "I'm really thirsty."
"You should have told me that." Raiden pointed by his thumb towards his bag on his back. "I have water bottles in there."
That was when he noticed Joel also carried a bag on his back. He must had taken it from the car during the time when they both ran.
"Then you should have told me that sooner," Joel replied with a sigh. "Never mind that, let's just go to the cafe."
Raiden noded and they walked ahead towards the cafe.
