My name is benjamin Benson.
Before the outbreak i worked in the Cherno power plant with my brother george, i had a family ounce,a wife, 1 daughter and a dog. When the outbreak happened i had no idea what was goin on and tried to get back to my family but on the way was attacked by my neighbour Fred, he was making no sense and his face was all scrachted up i ran because i was scared when i finally got home i found my wife dead in the lounge room, she was shot in the head i dont know how this could have happened as we didnt keep a gun in the house.
I searched all through the house looking for my daughter zarra but could not find her, her backpack was gone and so were some of her clothes im assuming she ran off.
I went to my brother georges house down the road and he told me what was happening and also said that my family was killed by a group of bandits that were simply after food i was beside myself i couldnt understand how things got so bad so quickly but he pulled me together and told me we would find the bastards that did this.
Both george and i are skilled huntsmen and we grabbed his hunting rifles and took to the woods, hunting and collecting food as needed. We often trade with those we meet in our travels and trade also for infomation that might lead us to the bandits that killed my family, last i heard they were headed north east so we head north east i guess.
One night while sleeping by our camp we heard voices close by than we were engaged by gunfire, my brother yelled "RUN BEN RUN" so i grabbed my bag and ran i didnt stop i dont what direction i ran i just ran for my life.
So now i search for my brother george, my daughter zarra and for those bandits, all i know is i have to head north east if im to find anything or anyone maybe the bandits know where my daughter is, maybe my george is up there somewhere thats if he is even still alive, maybe i will find something i dont want to find, i dont know but ive got my goal. i hunt, survive, trade and search. i have had thoughts of just finding some place to settle and start a farm but every time i try this im run out by undead so keep moving.
I know that if i find my daughter or my brother this burning anxiety that stays with me every day from sun up till sun down will leave me oh how i look foward to that day, i know then that i can settle down and have some one to watch my back as we farm and try to get on with life.
One day i hope that the military will rid the land of this infestation that plagues us maybe we could get back in control of things here i do not know if there is a government that still exists or if we are all alone no one i meet can tell me that.
Life now is nothing like it was before the outbreak, now i dont know who to trust im in constant fear nervous of strangers as ivé heard terrible things of what people do to each other now its just not right the lack of humanity that is left in us, i myself have had to do horrible things, things that haunt me in my sleep, things that ill never forget but by doing those things im still here, im still alive and im still searching.
