The three stood in the bushes watching the scene unfold across the street.
Five zombies had cornered a young woman who was desperately fending them off with her handbag. They had seen it countless times before, and knew better than to try and interfere, no one wanted to be a dead hero.
Suddenly a yell went up from the other end of the street, and a man came running at the pack screaming and waving a … stick.
He launched himself at the zombies, knocking two to the ground and began to stab a third in the eyes repeatedly and hard. As his victim fell he swung on the next and with a swift jab to the eye rammed the stick into its brain. He quickly moved onto the others, thrusting at their faces with deadly accuracy and wild fury.
Within seconds all five zombies were lying still on the ground. Just as quickly as he had arrived he started to run off, screaming and waving his bloodied stick in the air.
One of the watchers turned away and said “Crazy crack heads” the other two nodded to themselves as the woman picked herself up from the ground.
