This far north they were safe.
The walking dead were not immune from freezing it seemed, they had been pursued for close to a month, but now with the freezing ground beneath their feet, their pursuers had disappeared far behind them.
The group had stopped at a deserted farm house in the middle of a large empty valley, with no human contact as far as the eye could see, they finally felt safe. Despite being from the inner city, they had adapted to life in the country side. They had learned how to make fire and had scavenged preserved food from stores and homes as they fled north.
Now in this beautiful safe haven, they could grow their own food and live in safety. The group had enough supplies to last them for a month or two and now that they had planted the orange pips and apple seeds they could live off the land until the end of their days
