Amber yelled, “Back off!
I am not on your diet”
Zombies don’t listen

Zombies Prefer Redheads: a Halloween tale

Fiery-haired Amber grumbles, “Let’s go to the outdoor concert, she says. Cool autumn night, great music. It’ll be fun, she says. Fun, my ass! Hungry zombie cheerleaders show up. Uh huh. You ever see a cheerleader go off her diet? It’s not a pretty sight.”

Amber sets the pump shotgun against her shoulder,

“Back off! I am not on your diet!”

Once Kelly could belt out cheers and handle the most intricate routines. Now the zombie cheerleader moans, shambling forward.

Amber steps back, falling over a stone. She manages to keep ahold of the shotgun as she goes down. “Damn it, if you don’t back off, I’m going to blow your head off!”

And so she does.
