"Alright everyone search for supplies!" Coach said to the other seven (yes seven *SPOILER* Bill is dead) survivors. The house that was in the Botan Rouge suburbs was open. It was large, white, and not protected enough to survive the horde.
"Look at this." Zoey said finding a blood stained picture. It was a picture of a young man, about 21, and a woman around the same age with a seemingly newborn baby in her hand.
"Poor kid. This date was just a little while ago, Botan was hit last week. Didn't survive." Ellis said checking the date of the photo which was 1 month ago.
"Wah!" a voice cried.
"Was that a Witch?" Nick asked facing in the direction of the cry.
"No, a Witch sounds like a woman that watched one too many chick flicks," Francis replied. "That sounded more like a-"
"Baby!" Rochelle yelled.
"Yeah it did sound like one!" Louis replied.
"No really a baby!" Rochelle yelled. The six survivors crowded the woman in the Depeche Mode shirt and looked at the little baby. He had brown hair and blue eyes.
"How on Earth did the zombies not find him?" Nick exclaimed.
"He was in the chest, with seven large empty baby bottles and toys." Rochelle explained.
"The parents must've hid him from the zombies so he could live." Coach said.
"OOOO! Can we keep him? I've always wanted a little brother!" Ellis said as if he was an excited toddler that wanted a puppy.
"No Ellis. How are we going to both shoot zombies and care for this little guy?" Nick asked.
"We can't just leave him!" Louis yelled.
"I say we put him out of his misery." Francis suggested.
"You murderer!" Ellis said grabbing the child and holding him close.
"I'm not with Francis on his idea but how are we gonna take care of him?" Zoey asked. The survivors all looked at Ellis.
"If we can't figure out how to take care of him by the end of the week.......we'll kill him." Ellis said sadly.
"I vote Ellis's plan." Coach said.
"I second that." Zoey said.
"Alright we go with Ellis's plan. But there's one thing, how are we gonna both shoot and carry him?" Rochelle asked.
"Hey look what I found!" Louis said. He held up a navy blue baby carrier.
"Let's take turns holding him." Ellis suggested.
"I hate parenting." Francis said.
"Alright y'all here's the plan. Whoever is holding the kid is in the center while the other 6 are all around. One in the left corner in the front, one in the right corner center, one in the left back, one in the back, one in the right back, one in the left corner center, and one in the front.' Coach planned.
"I get it. So if one of us gets grabbed or pounced we can easily save each other." Rochelle said.
"Yeah. But what if there's a horde?" Nick asked.
"Then we'll form a circle around the one with the baby." Coach answered.
"I get it!" Ellis said.
"Who's carrying first?" Zoey asked.
"Rock, paper, scissors?" Francis asked. Then out of nowhere the familiar sound of stomping feet was getting closer.
"THE HORDE!" Ellis screamed putting the baby on his back. The survivors quickly got out their weapons and made a circle around Ellis. The began shooting as many as they could. None of them reaching Ellis and the small child who began to cry immensely.
"Ellis shut the kid up he's attracting more zombies!" Nick yelled shooting the zombies with his AK 47.
"Stop crying little guy!" Ellis said, the baby kept on crying. He began to make as many funny faces as he could, sung as many songs he could think of (Midnight Riders included), and began to rock the baby. Out of options he began to think of something else.
"I had a buddy Keith once, he kinda looked like you in fact. One time he tried to swing on ropes, kinda like Tarzan but he did it on a dare," Ellis told the tiny baby, he stopped crying and listened. "But there was no ropes around this place. So he got some thread and tied it to a tree, you think as soon as he swung he wound fall but he didn't. He hung there for like 2 hours but he didn't want to let go because he's afraid of heights and there was poison ivy below him. But as soon as we got a trampoline for him to jump onto so the impact wouldn't be so hard, the tread broke and he landed right on his as- I mean butt on poison Ivy. Doctors called up other doctors cause they never seen poison ivy rashes on every inch of a person's body. The way it got all over his body I don't know." When Ellis finished the story all the zombies were gone.
"Looks like we got a story lover." Zoey commented. The baby giggled in reply.
"Let's go look for supplies." Coach said. The Survivors walked in the planned formation killing any zombie in the way.
"Look a super market!" Rochelle pointed out.
"Yeah?" Francis asked.
"We can look for food for him!" Louis said.
"Woohoo! Well little guy we can find a way to take care of you!" Ellis said happily. They entered the almost empty large food market.
"Dang it! No food!" Rochelle yelled.
"Hey guys! The giant fridge is still full!" Nick yelled. The survivors pried at the door but it wasn't opening.
"Is it welded shut?" Francis asked. Zoey noticed the baby reaching for a large red glowing button labeled "open."
"We are so stupid." Zoey said walking to the button and pressing it. The door made a clicking noise and Francis and Ellis opened the door to reveal shelves stuffed with different foods. They found baby food and milk.
"Looks like we can care for you after all." Ellis said giving the tiny baby a bottle of milk that he brought.
"Ugh! What is that smell?" Rochelle exclaimed.
"When was the last time the baby's diaper was changed?" Nick said pinching his nose.
"There's a baby shop across the street go get some diapers and baby clothes if you find some." Coach instructed. Zoey and Rochelle went to get the stuff they were back in 15 minutes.
"Someone needs to change the diaper." Rochelle said. the survivors looked at each other.
"I'm out cause I carried the guy." Ellis said.
"I'm out cause I made the plan to protect him." Coach explained.
"We're out cause we got the stuff," Zoey said gesturing to her and Rochelle. "It wasn't easy there was a Hunter in there."
"That means me, Nick, and Francis need to rock, paper scissors." Louis said. The three of them made a circle. Louis had rock while Nick and Francis had scissors. Nick and Francis the game and they both had rock.
"I hat rock, paper, scissors," Francis said going again he had paper and Nick had rock. "I changed my mind."
"I hate you." Nick said angerly. He approached the baby with caution.
*After the diaper gets changed*
"Oh......My........God...." He said the stink entangled in his mind. Francis, Rochelle, Ellis, and Zoey were laughing insanely while Ellis was trying to contain his laughter but failed. Coach couldn't help but feel sorry for him along with Louis.
"Now that he's part of our group. What should we call him?" Louis asked.
"Jimmy Gibbs Jr Jr!" Ellis exclaimed.
"I say we name him Vest!" Francis said.
"No Marty!" Zoey yelled.
"William," Louis said seriously. "Bill's real name." The survivors around him remained silent.
"William is a great name." Zoey smiled as she pick up the baby. She got out Bill's hat that she kept as a keepsake for Bill and put it on the little boy.
"I guess we're Williams family now." Rochelle said.
"Can I be the dad? PLEASE!" Ellis whined.
"I thought you said you wanted to be his older brother." Louis said.
"I changed my mind!" Ellis explained.
"Yes Ellis you can be the dad. You just better not make me the grandma." Rochelle laughed.
"AWESOME! Zoey you can be the mom." Ellis said leaning closer to Zoey.
"I'll act like his mom but I'm not getting married to you Ellis." Zoey said.
"Why?" Ellis frowned.
"Cause after seeing the Witch bride I'm NOT getting married." Zoey laughed.
