Mathew jerks awake. He hasn't the idea of why this keeps happening. He goes on with his day, gets up, and goes downstairs. He eats breakfast, grabs his knife and bow, and heads outside. Immediately checking around all six sides of his shelter checking for zombies. He kills the few that are around, grabs his bike, and rides to the store. He goes to the distant shop assistant who never wants to speak to anyone. No one is quite alright now that there is a zombie apocalypse in real life. He quietly looks around the produce section picking out fruits and vegetables for the week and putting them in his sack. He goes to the packaged food section and, though there isn't much of it left, he takes some chips and pudding. He pays for the groceries, not with money, but with clothing and scrap metal. He thanks the shop assistant and leaves. He hears shop sirens, the coach is at it again. He was too independent and thought he didn't need anyone. So he murders everyone. He is in great distress.
