Too lazy to write a profile, PM if you really want to know all about me.
They came at night, hunting relentlessly for humans. Nobody knew where they came from, why they were here, or what they were.
This is a contest entry for BZ's creatures of the night contest.
Just another zombie apocalypse story. I see too many that are either short, boring, or not that good story-wise. Just throwing this out there for people like me.
This is also my first story, so excuse any errors.
Just as things were starting to feel 'normal' again
The world you once knew is crumbling around you. Streets that used to be full of life are now full of empty cars and empty stares from the dead. Buildings fall, people die, families break, and the world seems to be ending.
And in the middle of it all stands a young man, married a few months ago. For you, life was just starting. You never got a serious job, you couldn't decide whether you were having kids, and right as you were content, you heard a noise in the living room...
Wennipeg was a man who made all the wrong choices in life. Now he was stuck with nothing but a burden of regret. That is, until he was given a second chance.
Update 1.1: Fixed a minor error where the first page switches to second-person for a moment.
Update 1.2: Fixed link text where it said 'head for home', rather than 'Wennipeg headed for home', and a few similar errors.

What exactly happens in the SHAME pit? Besides being shunned and all that, is there a legit restriction or something?

It'd technically be legal to submit at 11:59 PM on Halloween. Game on?

Here's my entry. It's kinda short, but I'm proud that I did it on time.

I started this one, and thought it looked amazing, just haven't had the time to finish it. It's an awesome story though!

Thing is, I'm not sure if I'm 125 yet. Just testing the waters here.

If that's even allowed, I'd like to go 75.

Dang, I'm starting to wish I'd bet more.

Also, question: how non-human does it have to be? Could I do a variant of human that's been corrupted or infected in some way, or does it have to be something that isn't even remotely human?

I guess I'll join. This will be my first contest, time to see if I'm worth anything on here. 25 point bet.
