my name is Dr. Shakalue, my life changed the day i got that phone call. it was early in the morning of July 9th 2017. Dr. Arthur sounded eerily somber. "i need you in chernarus''. i felt my stomach turn. i knew this phone call was coming eventually.The infection was spreading at rates that made it impossible to contain. it was in the news daily. the strange thing was that nobody on the news was talking about the infected. only the bombings. My knowledge of fungus peeked an interest with "terra group" a team of scientist working in chernarus. Arthur, told me that terra group was looking for individuals with knowledge in mycology. Dr. Arthur had been in chernaurs since the outbreak began. studying the infected and trying to figure out why they turned. Dr.Arthur was a mycology professor at Stanford University. i worked for a pharmaceutical company in Stanford, CA. Dr. arthur was a major investor with the company, so i would see him often at events, meetings. when we met he said "i heard you like mushrooms".
He said all i needed to do was bring samples back to the states. terra group was not letting any scientists return home until their contracts were up. Dr.Arthur had just two months left. he said all i needed to do was meet him in the city of severograd to collect the samples. he told me with these samples of fungus and flesh of the infected he had a chance of making a vaccine. i decided to go for one reason, lily, my new born daughter and my wife. if i ignored Dr. Arthur, it would be to late by the time he got back in two months. he said we only had a few days. we had to beat the virus. i had to save my family.
