John came to Chernarus about a month before it all went to hell. His company was contracted to build foundations for a set of new apartment buildings in Chernogorsk. The work got delayed because the company that contracted John had messed up the applications for the building permits. John and his team of 5 construction workers decided to rent a cabin out in the woods, waiting for the bureaucratic mess to sort itself out. Why not take a little vacation? Chernaruses countryside is beautiful this time of year, and it's so cheap! Besides talking on the phone with his fiancee Emelie, John has spent most of his time in Chernarus fishing, hunting and playing cards with his co-workers in the cabin.
John had made a deal with a old man who owned a small grocery store in a village close by, to drive up to the cabin once every week with groceries and everything else they would need to last them another week. On the scheduled day of the fourth week, the old man didn’t come. John and his co-workers decided to give the man the benefit of the doubt and wait a day or two. The cabin was really in the middle of nowhere and after two days they had run out of most of the food and toilet paper. They decided that John and two others would hike the 12km to the village to get food and maybe even buy a car. The old man might have had a heart attack for all they knew.
They arrived at the village and they could immediately tell that something was off. Upon first glance it looked empty, almost deserted but as they made their way further in the village they saw the first dead body. And then another and then another. Dead people just laying in the streets, some of them with horrible wounds and blood smeared all around them. The shock and adrenaline had kicked in and they didn’t even notice the woman running straight at them. The woman flung herself over Frank and tackled him to the ground. John and Nick immediately tried to get the woman off their friend. They threw the woman to the side and saw that the blood was gushing from Frank’s throat. Frank couldn’t make a sound and was reaching for his throat. In seconds the woman was all over Nick’s back and was biting down into his neck. John felt the panic bending his legs, making them weaker. It was time to run.
John managed to lock himself in an empty house at the edge of the village. The woman had made an awful sound, banging and scratching on the door but after awhile she had stopped. John was carefully watching through the windows of the house, as he now saw the woman walking aimlessly around the village. What the fuck was going on?
