Kenzie was a week away from celebrating her 13th birthday when the outbreak occurred. She was hanging out with her friends up in her room when she heard Conner's(her dad's) beeper go off. She ran quickly to the banister to ask if he was going to work. He told her that something bad was happening and that she should pack a bag and take her friends home with her mom. She worriedly asked what was going on but heard the door slam shut below her. She watched from the window as her father drove away very fast without so much as another word. She was getting scarred but she knew that she should do what she was told. Ellen(her mom) yelled from downstairs "Girls its time to go home, get your stuff and get in the car!" She ran to the downstairs bathroom to pack a toothbrush but when she turn the corner to head for the bathroom the back door lay open to her house. A man with a sallow face stood in the threshold. He had angry eyes and looked insane, and just as she was about to scream he lunged at her and bit her on the arm she rose to defend herself from the blow. It hurt badly but she managed to kick the man in his junk, she was surprised when he did not double over in pain, instead he seemed to not even notice. screaming for help her mother Ellen came around the same corner brandishing a metal pan from under the kitchen sink. She hit the man in the head until he released his hold. The man then stumbled back and began to bleed from every hole in his head. Ellen quickly grabbed her up and took Kenzie to the car. She told the other girls in the back that she would have to drop them on the street near their home so that Kenzie could go to a doctor as quick as possible. After dropping the other girls off, Kenzie was surprised that the wound almost didn't hurt at all anymore. The towel which wrapped her fresh wound was drenched in blood and growing redder but the pain was not as bad anymore. She looked up as she heard that her mom was getting a phone call from her dad. she knew it was him because of the stupid ring-back tone that he insisted on. Its Frank Sinatra's "My Way." She hated that song but right now it meant that her dad was calling and that meant that she was less scared in that moment. That's when she began to hear chopper blades directly above her head. The helicopter did a dangerous landing maneuver and landed right in front of their car. They both screamed as 5 men with black military outerwear on and riffles jumped out onto the street and pointed their guns at her and her mom. She could hear her father yelling on the phone after them but the men were on them in seconds yelling at them both to step out of the vehicle. Her mother told her to just do what they said and so she did. And then the worst thing in her life happened the men pointed their guns at her mother, her mother seeming to struggle, and they shot her. Seeing her mother die in front of her Kenzie screamed out in pain and fear. It wasn't long before they shoved her into the helicopter and a German doctor with a full set of protective gear on stuck her with a needle and the world faded away.
