Usually the zombies don’t come here. I think they’re
instinctively afraid of the fuel smell because when zombies first came
they’d spray them with petrol & light them on fire. Kind of like
cats being afraid of water.
When the car pulls up I see the guy has a girl inside.
A dead girl bound with tape.
She was probably
when she was alive
because she’s still
attractive now with
the blood & drool
in her hair.
She’s struggling to free herself
as he pumps the gas.
He comes to pay me his $5
& I don’t even speak to him.
He opens his door & she grabs him & pulls
I pull the pistol out of
the cash register
& go out & shoot the man to shut him up.
Then I shoot the girl.
I push the bodies over & get in the car &
drive it away from the pump & go back to work at my register.
