My name is Joseph Voltov, I was born to a Chenarussian Father and an English Mother. I was born In Chenarus and grew up in England.
I am 25 years old and I signed up to the military under the pressure of my parents, my dad was always in the military and he pushed me hard to join them, so at 18 I joined the Military and they accepted me in open arms, much to the joy of my father! I always longed of the day that I would be killed in action, because I was depressed about killing other people and being alone, so alone, I had no woman to ground me and I was a loose canon, all this just to please my father!
I was part of the CDF troops who were setting up patrols in Kamensk on the 7th of July things were quite chaotic at the time noone really knew what was going on and we were turning people back from entering into the cities.
Come the 11th of July I woke to the noise of gunfire and screaming, I picked up my rifle and head out of the tent I was staying in, there were people chasing people, people tearing people's flesh from others bones. I'd never seen anything like it, word came over the radio that a virus had spread and the people were dying and coming back to life. They were killing the living and turning them into the beasts they were. I slowly moved towards one of them with my rifle aimed directly at them, I heard a growl and he turned around, blood dripping from his mouth and hands he had a glazed look in his eyes, he put his arms in the air and screamed, to this point I heard others nearby to which I saw at least 5 of them, one was wearing our uniform. They all started running towards me. I ran and ran until I couldn't run and more, the sound of my rifle hitting the side of my leg was all I could remember as well as the snarling of the beasts behind me, I saw a bunch of houses just outside Kamensk and I headed for the first one I could see. I could feel the beasts breathing down my neck as I fumbled for the front door, I opened it and slammed it behind me, as I turned to look out the window to see a pile of these guys behind the door I heard a loud gasp. And there she was behind me, a beautiful young woman cowering in the corner of the room.
It was love at first sight, at that point I dropped my weapon to then had to calm her down and convince her i was friendly, she asked me what was going on and all I wanted to do was put my arms around her and tell her everything was alright, we spoke for hours and hours about what we were were going to do and waited until the beasts outside were gone, she called them zombies to which I knew she was right, how did this happen, how did we let this happen?
That night she told me she had a cabin in the woods nearby so eating the only food she had left we waited until morning and ran there as fast as we could, her leading the way with me behind with my rifle ready to shoot any beast that came near us.
Officially I was going AWOL and banding my post, my team who I fought by everyday for the past 7 years and knew I would be punished heavily, but I feel this lady is the one I have been looking for my whole life, beautiful, funny and would be a perfect mother for my children.
One day she went out to collect some firewood and I heard screaming, she was being attacked by wolves, they tore her apart in front of my eyes, my whole world crumbled beneath me.
Oh Maria! It should of been me collecting that firewood, at least I would of fought the wolves off due to my large physical stature, Maria was 5'0 and very petite in frame so she had no chance at all.
I had lost my love and lost my career, now i'm stranded with a city full of zombies just next door, I had to stop this, I had to look for a new beginning.
