The convoy of army trucks crossed the border at dawn, bringing troops to battle the zombie hordes.
The woman watched the rotors of the helicopter gyrate in slow motion as the craft hovered over the field behind the farmhouse. Breathing a sigh of relief at imminent rescue, she hoped the soldiers had found her grand-daughter.
The creature shambled across the field… a long object pointed up at the chopper. In the next instant… it disappeared in a ball of flame.
Dropping to her knees… the woman began to pray.
The kitchen door crashed open behind her…
The zombie moaned.
