Chapter 6 of the book Infected
The infection continues, plans are made.
"Action and Reaction"
INT. FROST CREEK 911 CENTER.
Joseph keys in the sequence to unlock the door to the 911
center. As soon as he opens the door he is assaulted by sound.
Radios are squawking, alarms are going off, and one frazzled
middle aged operator is standing in the middle of the room
holding a microphone in one hand and a telephone up to her
(Into telephone) Pervert! (She
slams down the reciever)
(Jumps, surprised) Oh, it's only
you. Don't do that!
Sorry. What happened here? Usually
on Wednesday the fire trucks only
move far enough to make room for
the bingo players.
It's been a nightmare. Three fires,
seven assaults, ambulance runs like
crazy, but most of all a bunch of
Really? Who would be stupid enough
to do that?
I wrote down all the numbers, the
Sherriff's department is supposed
to look into them when they get a
I just can't imagine.
The funny thing is, most of the
calls were the same. A scream,
followed my moaning.
Maybe it was some stupid college
kids having an orgy.
Well, I hope you have a quieter
shift than I did. I'm going home,
take some Tylenol, and go to bed.
She was barely through the door when the phone started ringing.
Emergency dispatch, what's your
EXT. MAIN STREET. FROST CREEK
Camera focused in tight on a traffic light that has turned
red. Camera slowly pulls back and pans down behind Sherriff
Secrest and two of his deputies who have positioned their
squad cars as a barricade, blocking the main street. Dozens of
infected are slowly advancing on them.
(Into megaphone) Disperse. return
to your homes.
I don't think they're listening,
Disperse or we will be forced to
Infected continue to advance, as if they can't hear or don't
W...what do we do, Sherriff?
(Grabs a tear gas rifle and fires
several rounds into the crowd of
infected) That should slow them
The infected appear completely uneffected by the gas and
continue to advance.
(Whips around and shoots an
infected that has grabbed deputy
two and bitten into his shoulder)
Oh my God. You just shot Ned
Haskins, the owner of the hardware
(Mumbles) His prices were too high
Sherriff Secrest and Deputy one grab Deputy two and throw him
in the back seat of the cruiser. They speed away just before
(Panicked) What do we do?
INT. FROST CREEK HOSPITAL.
(Looking back and forth between
Tevist and the hoard of infected
pounding on the window of the room
they are trapped in) What do we do?
As the window begins to crack, Tevist holds out his hand to
Orderly one. He takes it and gives it a slow shake.
It's been an honor working with
you. Thanks for sticking around to
(Smiling) You still owe me
(Smiles back as they disappear in a
hoarde of infected)
Camera pans back to show a hospital totally overrun by
infected. One shadowy figure slips out of a side door and
FROST CREEK PRISON. BRIEFING ROOM.
What do we do?
There's only one thing we can do.
Face facts. The Warden and Deputy
Warden haven't been able to be
reached in two days, half the
officers have quit to go be with
their families, we're working with
a skeleton crew and the inmates are
on the verge of rioting.
So what do you suggest?
Twenty minutes later, all the officers have gathered in the
I called you all here because it's
time we made some decisions. We all
know what's going on outside.
Yes, I told you all for years the
Zombie Apocolypse was coming, would
(Rolling eyes) Okay Tyler, you were
right. Happy now? Can we move on?
As long as you admit it.
Okay, we have a plan but it's
completely voluntary. I don't think
the paychecks will be coming
anymore. We need to take care of
Yes! Survival time.
Exactly. Now what we have in mind
is fortifying this building.
What? You mean live in a dirty,
You don't have to stay, you could
go powder your nose or something.
Listen here punk, I was working
here when you were still in junior
(Mumbles) And it shows.
I said, I didn't think they hired
aging cheerleaders back then.
(Reaching for Tyler and having to
Enough of this! Here's the plan. We
go one at a time, get our families,
and bring them here. I think most
of us would agree that this is the
most defensable building in the
Nods all around except for Betch who just glares at Tyler.
FROST CREEK SHERRIFF'S DEPARTMENT
SHerriff Secrest loads a shotgun and lays it on his desk next
to four others while talking on the phone.
That's great, thank you. So, when
will you be here? 0800 tomorrow
morning? Can't you come sooner? No,
I understand, Thank you very much.
(Hangs up phone) We're on our own
for the night.
But this is an emergency.
I know, they just need time to form
up and get here.
I always thought the national guard
was always ready to go at a
