Chapter 3: Survivors
The three of them decided to visit the Gaikokune household soon after. Chihon was convinced Haruki had something to do with the sudden outbreak, and although Hikaru kept denying it on the way home, the librarian was true.
“Tsk.” Chihon poked both of the boys that were sleeping on the floor. “You thought they would be smarter than this.” Hikaru scoffed. “You don’t need to be all negative about my brother all the time.”
“Yes I do. Especially now. This was ridiculously stupid.”, Chihon replied.
“You are so rude- ”, Hikaru started, but she was cut off by the lack of the buzzing sound in the background. Both females looked at the computer and saw that Yuugi stopped the sample from looping. “Do you think it’s fixed now?”, he asked. “Go see for yourself.”, Chihon replied. Yuugi poked both Haruki and Joëll until a regular person would snap, but it didn’t work. “Well, at least you tried.”, Chihon said.
“Well, let’s think about more ideas.”, Hikaru added. Chihon nodded. Yuugi sighed. “You two need to play more zombie survival games. We gotta look for other people still awake!” Again, both girls looked at him. “Actually, not a bad idea, although I don’t like the idea of playing said games.”, Chihon answered. “And the person spreading this should be awake too.”, Yuugi continued. Chihon nodded. “One thing though.”, Hikaru said calmly. “I doubt there are a lot of people who never used the internet, like Chihon.”
Even if Hikaru thought there would be no ‘survivors’, she ran into a living creature under the bridge. Her name was Maya, and she appeared to be an android. When Hikaru asked her to come with her, she declined though… Not that Maya seemed to have any interest in anything. So Hikaru went back to her house without anyone coming with her. She silently hoped Chihon and Yuugi found someone, but she didn’t really believe it.
Too bad she was totally wrong.
Chihon arrived first, dragging someone along with her. “Hikaru,” she started. “This is Pavel. He claims to be a vampire.” Pavel shrugged. “You keep saying I ‘claim’ to be vampire, but I really am.”, he replied. “Nice to meet you, by the way. You look lovely.” Just when Pavel said this, Yuugi appeared from above them, hovering next to Hikaru in an instant. “Excuse me mister vampire, but she’s my girlfriend.” Above them, someone let out a vast “Boo yeah!” When Hikaru looked up, she saw a girl, also floating in mid-air. She landed gracefullu, and took a bow.
“Name’s Luna, Luna Senritsu. I’m a shinigami so I survived the zombie virus!”
Both Chihon and Hikaru looked at each other, and then glared at Yuugi. He grinned. “It’s like a zombie virus, right?” Pavel and Luna nodded in reply. The other two could only sigh.
