After 10 days sailing my improvised raft to the continent I have finally arrived. The city was dead. Something has happened, some sort of zombie infestation. So far I haven't seen anyone still alive.
I rushed to my house in Mogilevka to check up on Sarah and Emily (Millie). I still had hope...I was a fool. Sarah was turned into one of those zombie things and was locked in our bathroom. I found no signs of Millie. I sat at our dining table and cried...
Next thing I remember is coming back to my senses in the middle of the west forest of "Mogi". Gunshots. Someone was still alive! The sun was setting fast, the night was crawling upon us and darkness fell upon the town. I couldn't see any lights on. I started to get thirsty and tried to crawl to the nearby well but the gunshots intensified. There was a full war going on. I couldn't risk myself, Millie is still out there, somewhere...I know it.
I decided to try to reach the hunter's camp to SW of Mogi. A place my father used to take me when I was a teenager. I knew there was a well there I could have a drink. Big mistake. The night was too dark, I got lost in the woods for hours. So thirsty, and getting hungry. I ate my last apple and continued to try to find my bearings. Eventually I felt a road under my feet, I decided to follow it north. I walked for hours and couldn't find anything, I wasn't going to last long...Millie...
Almost at the end of my strength I got lucky. I heard water, a stream! I was walking over a bridge. I finally knew where I was, the only road that long going north is the road from Mogi to New Sobor. I was pretty close to the town but I couldn't afford to get there, I was dying of thirst and would surely pass out if i didn't get anything to drink, so I ran down the bridge and drank from the stream. I got immediately sick, I could feel it. I decide to go to Sobor, but half the way there another gunfight. They were even using automatic weapons, military grade stuff. I had nothing to defend myself, nothing. So I decided to backtrack my way to the stream. I knew if I followed it south I would reach a summer camp. I remember being there with my father. There, maybe, I could find a rifle.
I followed the stream by ear, stepping on the water to know where I was going. The night was dark. I finally reached the camp and could see dawn breaking. I quickly searched the medical building but couldn't find anything to help with my illness. I took a whole packet of paracetamol but was still sick, it must be bacteria but I didn't find any antibiotics. I found a cantine, which was a relief. Now I would be able to carry some water with me, but I was running low on food. I had only a can of tuna that I found with one of the zombies I took out at the camp, I needed to find something else. So I decided to follow the blue trail west. The trails usually go trough isolated areas, maybe this way I could avoid conflict with whoever was shooting.
After sometime I reached the farms south of Guglovo and found a rifle with some bullets in it. Finally some means to defend myself. I could see my luck was changing. I looked all over the town and found some interesting things. Lots of fruits from which I feasted, so hungry. And also found some matches and an axe. Now the only thing I was missing was a knife and then I could hunt some deer and cook it, have some real food for a change. I decided to walk east, through the forest, to Shakhovka. My luck continued to improve as I quickly found a knife and I could hear some deer calls real close to my position.
And there they were. One shot. Deer is down. I have food. I went back to the forest, deep into it so no one could find me. I found some trees to hide and set a fireplace. It was the first time since I left the island I felt good. Now I have a real chance to find Millie. It's time to wrap this up and sleep till tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day, and might be the day I find her. Good night, Millie, wherever you are. Goodbye, Sarah, I love you forever.
