  3. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    "So your boy, how old is he?" Harlan asks Sergey "14" "But whats age now a days huh?" Sergey replies "He's a good kid though" "He listens to his mother" He adds Harlan looks over at Shane sleeping by the fire next to James "Shane is a good kid" "I always listened to Mom more" Harlan laughs "But he is all I have left" Sergey asks Harlan if he thinks they well find help in Turkey "I hope"Answers Harlan"If not we will find another way" Harlan felt good with the group He had to brother He had friends Harlan looks back at Sergey Alex leaning against the tree next to him sleeping..... As Harlan is about to ask Sergey if he wanted to take the rest of the shift off to get some sleep before tomorrows journey BAM Harlan's goes blind Blood coverning his face soaking into his eyes "Nobody fucking move" Is all Harlan hears as he wipes his face "Grab the kid man" Harlan hears as he trys to adjust his eyes "I got the old man" "you two get the women" Looking at Sergey Harlan sees half his face is blown off He looks up at Alex just in time to see a masked man cutting his throat "Noooooo" Harlan screams jumping to his feet "Finish with the kid and get that guy man" Before Harlan could turn to see who said that He feels a sharp pain to the back of his head Harlan jumps from the shed floor Covered in sweat he realizes he was just dreaming He sits for awhile trying to calm down Knowing he needs to head out and get some water and start looking for Shane again

    Entry 7 - Took two days but I made it back to the light house. Ran into 2 guys (Paul and Hunter) who were friendly. Hunter took me to the medical camp in hopes of finding supplies and my way back to this light house. Harlan stops writing He looks back up at the island Thinking of Hunter not knowing if he was telling the truth about the jail "He sure didn't want to talk to us about the island" "He also kept drinking water like he was sick" "He also knows where we are looking for Shane" Harlan says out loud [align=left]Hunter said he knew of the island across the way as a jail. He said he didn't know if anyone lived on it but didn't really want to talk about it. He told me about acouple other groups running around. But when I mentioned the regulators he again stopped talking. He was very helpful in getting back so I hope to run into him once I find Shane. Just have to watch out!!!! "We have to get some sleep" "Need to look for Shane tomorrow" "Grab some water down the road in the morning" Harlan says [align=left]Hunter also talked about a place called Green Mountain. We passed it going to the medical camp. It had a big radio tower you could see from the distance. Hunter said it was a radio station and that some guy lived there. Might be a good place to try to go and radio for Shane?? Harlan puts down his diary Making a pillow out of his backpack He lays down and shuts his eyes
  5. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    Harlan walks throughout the night Stopping at a small cabin to get some rest Looking around he finds a knife "Finally something I can open these cans with" He was lucky enough find a backpack with several cans of food in it As Harlan sits at a table he opens up some beans He smiles to himself Not knowing the last time he had an appetite He throws another log onto the fire he built and takes another bite It was the gun shots that woke Harlan Looking up he adjusts his eyes to the light BAM...BAM....BAM Three shots ringout Harlan can tell the shots are coming from up the road He creeps out of the cabin heading towards the shots BAM....BAM Two more shots as Harlan hears shouting He runs into a house just to see a guy running BAM....BAM...BAM Assuming the guy running is being shot at Harlan crouches down by the window and watches The guy runs out of view and soon the gun shots seem to finish Still not sure about going outside Harlan looks out the other side of the house BAM...BAM...BAM "Shit!!!" Harlan screams thinking the shots are for him now He runs back into the room he was in before not knowing if he should run or stay Just then the guy that was running early runs right into the house He surprises Harlan as much as Harlan surprises him The guy introduces himself as Paul Tells Harlan he was just looking for supplies Goes on to tell Harlan the shots are from another guy out in the field That he was shooting at a bunch of zombies Feeling better Harlan goes outside with Paul and begins asking if he had seen Shane Paul tells him no and the part ways As Harlan enters the next town he hears two people Getting closer to the house he can tell one of the voices is Paul Harlan enters the house to find Paul with another guy Looking more like a woodsmen he introduces himself as Hunter He seems very nice but has a surgical mask on and asks Paul to administer a saline bag to him as we are talking Harlan begins to ask Hunter about Shane and tells him the story of how they were separated He also asks if either know where the medical camp is towards the west "Ya, I know where you mean" Hunter tells Harlan He offers to take Harlan there as he is in need of some supplies too Since he has been alone for so long and Hunter seems like a good guy Harlan agrees and they both say good bye to Paul and head South West As they cross over field after field town after town Harlan learns that there are a few more groups out there Hunter tells him about a group called Kingdom North from where we met Hunter explains that he thinks they are friendly Also that there were two trading groups One that he should watch his back with and the other that is out trying to help people Harlan tells Hunter about his run in with Richards and what he heard about "The Helpers" Also about Mr. Chang and Dougie Hunter explained there were alot of strange people out there now Harlan also told him about the Regulators and the island Hunter said he hadn't heard of any of the groups but seemed to know about the island Sometime during all the talk and the occasional stop to look for supplies They walked up to what looked liked military barracks "Does this look familiar?" Hunter asks Harlan "I'm not sure" As they walk deeper into the camp Harlan starts to recognize some things He checks for a long road up a hill at the front of the camp Once at the top he sees the road blocks and knows where he is "I don't know how to thank you" "You really got me here" Harlan says to Hunter He tells him that alittle farther south is the light house he has been camping at And the house with all the goods in it that started the whole mess in the first place Hunter tells Harlan that he needs to head back That he needs to get back to his camp with the supplies he had found "I hope you find your brother Harlan" "and I'll keep an eye out for him" Hunter tells Harlan as they part ways "Wait one second" Harlan says "I know you said you like to hunt and fish" "Take this" Harlan hands him a thing of netting "It will help" Harlan had found the netting with his backpack and felt he had to repay Hunter somehow "Thanks Harlan" "And be safe" Hunter says as he walks away After acouple more miles Harlan reaches the light house He smiles as he opens the door seeing the empty cans he had left behind He felt like he was home again Sitting at the door he looks towards the island Wondering why Hunter acted so strange about the island Or as he called it a "Prison"
  6. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    Harlan closes his diary He looks out in front of him Beautiful mountain all the fall colors shining in the bright sun Not really sure what to do anymore he closes his eyes He sees his Mom Doing dishes in the kitchen His brother Shane talking about some car he was saving up for Harlan starts to think about Sergey and Alex Laying in their own blood About Mativy Was he dead? He thought to himself "Might just be easier" He says out loud He opens his eyes knowing this isn't the first time he has had this thought Killing himself has seemed like a real option to him He has been looking for Shane for what feels like months The people he has run into have never seen or heard anything "What left is there in this new world?" He again says aloud As if someone was there talking with him Then Harlan thinks of those people he came across Other than the bandits that jumped them in the beginning and the two the took his supplies later Most of the people he has met seem to be good people Everyone was helpful in some manner He thinks "I know I can survive" "I've been surviving" Harlan once again says out loud With his mind now on living He starts to think of what he needs "We have to go get medical supplies" "Too many times I've gotten...." Harlan stops himself mid sentence "Who the fuck am I talking to?" Trying to stay focused on supplies Harlan thinks of the medical camp he came across awhile back Knowing it was towards the west Harlan stands up and looks at the now setting sun "Guess we're headed west" Still not wanting to give up on Shane He heads west in search of the camp Hoping to hear some news on his brother Something that will prove he's alive Or even the others that he was with "The one's that made it..."
  7. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    Entry 6 - So many days have passed and so many things has happened. I tried to reach the traders house to the north but was cut off by a group of infected. After a day of wandering the forest I came across a town that seemed clear of infected. I was getting water when I was jumped by 2 guys. They said they were "sorry" but needed help. After 3 more days of building back supplies I found myself sitting in front of a campfire cooking up a chicken a had killed at a farm I came across. By the morning I was puking my guts out and burning up. I couldn't keep anything down for 3 days. Finally woke up on the shore with nothing but my diary and pen. Not really sure what to do now...... Is Shane still alive???
  8. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    Once getting to the town with the traders house and his first infected attack in a longtime Harlan starts to look around None of the houses seem to have any signs of life or infected life Thinking maybe the person moved Harlan continues north As Harlan walks along the road he wonders about Richards He hopes he was ok he actually was hoping to run into him by now He wondered about the groups he talked about The Helpers the ones who were saving people The Regulators the ones to watch out for Harlan then looks up seeing what looks like a rocket on the top of a mountain He had lost his radio awhile back so he thought it might be a place to checkout The sun was starting to set so Harlan decides to sit and eat first As he opens another can of peaches he looks up at the tall structure "There's gotta be someone up there" Harlan then watches as the sun turns the sky purple and he almost feels like he's in a normal place once again It was completely dark once he reached the base of the mountain As he starts to climb his eyes adjust to the darkness After about 20 minutes Harlan thinks he hears voices ahead of him He doesn't want to scare anyone and wants to know what he's walking into So he slowly walks forward After three or four steps gun fire rings out Harlan can see people all over running and shooting He turns and runs back down the mountain Not stopping till he hears nothing but his own heart racing Feeling exhausted but still scared Harlan keeps walking finding a dirt road heading East After acouple small towns and what feels like 100 miles Harlan feels the sun start to come up over his shoulder He finds a tree to sit under and eat breakfast Knowing he should stop and find a place to rest he also knows he needs to feel safe Finishing his can of beans Harlan starts back down the road Hoping for a better day About an hour later Harlan see a guy running towards him Coming out of a larger town Harlan introduces himself and tells the man about Shane Told the man he was looking for people who could help him The man said his name was Mr. Chang That he was busy and couldn't talk long Mr. Chang explained that there was no one around that could help He pointed in each direction and said he'd get robbed each way he went Mr. Chang then ran off Harlan thanked him for the information Feeling alittle unsafe Harlan keeps walking down the road watching carefully as he walks through the town Towards the edge of town Harlan see another person running towards him As the man approaches he waves and introduces himself as Dougie Harlan waves back giving his name Dougie asks Harlan if he knew "the guy running down the street?" and points behind him Harlan tells him no but tells Dougie about meeting Mr. Chang not far behind and that it could have been him Harlan then asks Dougie if there were more people up the road Dougie explained that there were many people in the area He didn't make things sound as bad as Mr. Chang Dougie said he was headed south to look around Harlan asks if he had ever heard of "The Helpers?" and explained his run in with Richards Dougie said he hadn't heard of The Helpers but that The Regulators were "messed up people". Said they were trying to enforce laws "Their laws" Dougie says Harlan halfway laughs thinking he use to camp across from them Harlan heads back up the road looking for more people As he starts to think of his last two run in's He gets mad that he forgot to ask Dougie about his red arm band He seemed like a nice person and hopes the next person he comes across with a red armband is just as helpful
  9. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    As the wind blows the loose doors of the shed Harlan rolls over all too well familiar with the squeaky sound he realizes once again where he is Not knowing if he should be happy or sad he gets to his feet and looks outside His eyes adjust to the sun as he looks towards the island Again not knowing if he should be happy or sad to look at the mysterious island once more He hears his stomach groan and walks back to the shed grabbing his bag to get some food Opening up a can of peaches he reaches for his journal knowing what he is ready to admit to himself [align=left] Entry 5 - Its been afew weeks since my last entry. Still not sure the date but I know I was out exploring for at least 3 weeks. Back at the camp now after a crazy trip. Harlan stops writing The enormity of his circumstances fighting his heart Looking towards his bag he sees the few cans of food he has left The one canteen of water the dull knife and ax His ripped pants and worn out boots The past few weeks made Harlan look at his own survival He fought the ideas that slowly crept into his head Should he be out in the woods? Almost falling to the infected several times One cutting his arm while he was getting some water He had to run leaving his bag behind with most of his supplies He almost froze that night Finding warmth in a van with a blanket in the back It was that night he first thought that Shane was dead Or that it wasn't smart to keep looking for him He realized then that he had to start worrying more about himself and not his brother [align=left] I headed back north to the town with the traders house. I wanted to at least leave a note, hoping they might know something about Shane. Once I got to the town, I noticed what I thought was someone going into a house. When I approached I called out acouple times not trying to surprise anyone. I went to the back of the house and was face to face with an infected person. I almost didn't know what to do until I heard him yell and I turned and ran. Once in the street I saw three more infected coming from all directions. I ran as fast as I could towards the woods and didn't stop till I couldn't hear them anymore. [align=left]Yes the infected are here!! [align=left] That's when I started to lose track of time and days. I hid in a hunting stand, figuring I was gonna head back to camp once morning came. It wasn't till morning I realized my compass was gone. I had no idea where I was and no idea which direction camp was. I knew if I got to the shore I'd be able to find the island, and I could continue looking for Shane and leaving notes. I looked at the sun and figured out south and headed out. [align=left] After what I'm guessing was three days I came to a big city. I was almost out of food so I started looking for supplies. I was getting water from a well and filling my canteen when I felt someone grab my arm. An infected had snuck up behind me and now was on top of me. I managed to get away but lost my bag at the well. I thought about trying to go back but after my first experience I decided to keep looking for the shore. Harlan looks down at his arm His cuts almost healed thoughts of what being cut by an infected might do still in the back of his head He felt good or as good as someone calling a shed home During the end of the world while looking for his probably dead brother could be [align=left]I was able to bandage my arm from the rags I made from my hat. I also had my half filled canteen, a can of food and a knife. It took acouple more days to get to the shore but it was a very happy moment. A small town was also there and no infected. I found some more rags for my arm and some more food. Also a gun with a few bullets. Not really sure how many more days it took till I came to the airfield and town I recognized. I decided to stop by the well to fill up on water. Knowing not to keep my back turned too long, I noticed an infected coming down the street. As I got ready to run I saw it was a normal person. Or as normal as one can be now. [align=left]Once he saw me he stopped and introduced himself. He told me his name was Richards, what sounded like an English guy. Said he was on holiday before everything went to hell. He said he was jumped by a group of bandits and that they had killed people while making him watch, that they then burned his face. I guess leaving him for dead. He had a bandanna wrapped around his face and spoke with a rasp. He told me that the bigger town north of the airfield, had a good group called the "helpers"?? I think he said. He said that no one can survive out here on their own and that they would help. He also said something about them "Saving" people. He was alittle out there at times but took me to the shore in front of the island. He also said that the island had a group called the "regulators" and to stay clear of them. This has me wondering what I should be doing right now??? Harlan feels his throat start to tighten A growing pain in the pit of his stomach [align=left] I'm starting to wonder if Shane is even alive?? There he had wrote it down He couldn't hide from the thought any longer Even if he scratched it out he'd know it had been there As much as he felt like crying He also felt relieved He knew he could never give up on finding Shane But he also knew he had to start worrying about himself and that he needed to find a new camp A new life I'm going to head back north to the traders house. Look for some more people and try to find out more about these groups. Not really sure if I can trust Richards words. But I need to find out. He said he had something he had to do and didn't know if he would come out alive. And to tell people about him. Then he headed north towards the mountains. Harlan puts his journal back into his bag and gets to his feet Looking around to make sure he wasn't forgetting anything He pushes open the shed doors and heads north In hopes to find some friends and hopefully get some answers
  10. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    Harlan slowly walks up to the shed on top of the hill All he has been thinking of the last couple weeks was that ugly shed He pushes open the door Holding his breathe, hoping that Shane might be sitting inside He takes a look Only seeing the empty cans and burnt out fire he had left behind "Damit" Harlan says out loud as he walks inside the shed He drops his bag on the ground and finds his old spot along the wall "Well that was one hell of an adventure" His eyes start to shut as he thinks of the past few weeks
  11. Week Vacation

    Im off to see the folks for Thanksgiving, you all have a good one and I'll be back to surviving next week
  12. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    "NO!!!!" Mativy screams as one of the bandits pulls a knife to Lena's neck Harlan rushes to his bag, hoping to get to his gun He is met with a swift hit to the head from the butt of another bandits rife Shane jumps at the bandit, only to get hit across the face The bandit holding ther knife to Lena's throat looks at Mativy and asks "Is this your wife?" Mativy looks at his wife, his eyes filling up with tears "Please, don't hurt her, please you guys can have whatever you want, just please..." BAM!!BAM!!BAM!! Mativy is cutoff mid-sentence by the bandits hand gun Harlan jumps up from the crack of thunder Looking outside he see's its another rainy morning He opens the doors to the shed and looks to the sky "Hopefully it won't keep up all day" he thinks to himself He then looks towards the island across the way Grabbing his binoculars he looks for any signs of life "Its got to be some type of miltary base" "Whatever it is, it looks secure" Harlan knows he can't get to far ahead of himself Shane is the most important thing right now But he also knows they will need something more then a shack for a home once he finds him After a few minutes of studying the island the rain starts to slow down Harlan gathers his things and heads back north His plan is to check out that road going into the woods he had passed last night As much as he wants to pass the gate and go back to the stash house He just wasn't sure how without getting himself into trouble Meanwhile he hopes to find some medical supplies in whatever is down that road After awhile Harlan gets to the road block and gate Entering he slowly walks down the road, being very careful After a few yards he begins to see some structures Two large buildings surrounded by a large fence Another check point sits at the entrance Harlan walks to the farthest building being careful once inside After carefully inspecting each floor he exits the building Only finding a blood transfusion bag, he walks to the front of the second building "Some type of hospital I guess?" Harlan searches the second building not finding anything useful Finding a seat in the lobby, he opens his bag and gets a drink of water His stomach grumbling, he looks to the sky "Turned out to be a nice day" Figuring it must be close to noon and wanting to get some food in him and try Shane on the radio again He heads back south
  13. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    Harlan feels the warmth of the sun on his face as he slowly opens his eyes Hearing the birds chirping he sits up checking out his hand "Looks good" he thinks to himself "Now lets see if we're still not in Kansas anymore" As Harlan opens the shed door he is temporally blinded The sun fills the small shed, instantly warming Harlan's body He raises his arm trying to adjust his eyes to the sun Taking a step forward he takes his first look "Damn, still in hell" Harlan says out loud, looking at the lifeless island across from him "At least its sunny out" Harlan grabs his bag and pulls out his canteen After a few drinks and a few bites of the canned peaches he had found Harlan sites to plan out his day Realizing he is low on water and food and remembering acouple greenhouses in the town down the hill He decides he'll first walk down to the well and fill up on water Hopefully there will be some supplies there to start planting crops He sets off for the town Once finishing filling his canteen and finding some tomato seeds Harlan heads north Starting to feel good about knowing his surroundings he cuts through a field knowing where the small town he went to the other night is From there he plans on continuing north for awhile Hopefully he will find a way to leave some type of sign for Shane As he walks up the hill he looks towards the east Six building sit way off in the distance All looking identical, Harlan believes its the start of the city he was in earlier By the time he got to the last place he could remember, the sun was starting to set A sign on the road listed two towns One to the south which he knew was where he had gotten water And one to the north " I think thats Russian" he thinks to himself The arrow pointing north he at least understood as he continues on the road After awhile Harlan notices many structures on the road Several barriers are placed to stop traffic and a tent is setup at the end Obviously military, he cautiously moves to the tent Finding nothing, he notices a gate with a small building on the other side He opens the gate and goes inside Seeing many hospital scrubs and a first aid kit he figures the area must have been an evacuation spot at some point A long road goes into the woods but Harlan decides to keep heading north Being as dark as it is, he knows going deep into the woods could be a bad idea He'll come back another day He heads north, back on the road he was originally on A few more miles up the road Harlan see's what he's been waiting for It was a golden globe shining in the moonlight that he first noticed He pulls out his binoculars and see's what he thinks is a church of some type along with many other buildings He approaches cautiously, looking for any signs of life Once at the church, Harlan starts to look around It was a decent size town not the city that was to his east but big enough that he might find some good supplies The first three houses had nothing in them as Harlan was starting to get frustrated Leaving the forth house empty handed, he was getting pissed Then he entered his fifth house and almost fell down "Holy Shit" he says as he looks at the room in front of him Things were everywhere Clothes, shoes, bags, food It looked like a fully stocked survival store Then reality came back and Harlan started to get real nervous "No way this isn't someone's place and stash...." Harlan starts to back out of the house and closes the door "and I'm not trying to meet them this way" He runs up the road and see's the edge of the woods ahead of him Almost feeling the owner or owner"s are chasing him he sprints to the woods Once at the edge he stops at a tree and catches his breathe His mind racing he heads back south wanting to get back home to think things over He knows the supplies he wants are probably inside that house But he also knows whoever put that stuff there had to go find it first and if it was him, he'd be alittle mad if someone came in and took it Plus other then his handgun and a few rifle shots he doesn't feel heavily armed "Maybe go back and leave a note?" he thought "Maybe they are just traders?" All the way back to camp he thought about turning around But each time he figured a bad outcome and would talk himself out of it No matter what he was going to do, he knew he was gonna wait until it was light out He gets to the shed and stretches out Thinks about maybe trying the group on the radio, he had heard some chatter the other night but then decided to sleep on it and goes to bed

    Tks guys, really enjoying it
  15. Diary of Harlan Meadows

    While sitting in the shed trying to figure out what to start for camp Harlan notices the rain and wind starting to pick up He closes the door of the shed and looks out the window The rain and wind begin slamming against the shed There is no hope of venturing out for supplies so he tries to get comfortable for the night Harlan had tries to get some sleep but the wind was too loud He used the time to figure out his next steps Turning on his lamp he grabs his diary [align=left]Entry 4 - Crazy storm tonight, feels like a hurricane coming through the camp. Was hoping to start looking for more supplies but there is no hope in going out. Once I am able to, I plan on heading further north to see what is there and to see if I can leave some type of sign for Shane. My food supplies are ok right now but I need to find more. I am thinking of trying fishing along the coast, maybe hunting in the woods?? While searching through some of the smaller villages, I have noticed many green houses. I'll look into starting some crops. [align=left]Still no sign of life across the way on the island. Will continue to watch Harlan puts his diary away and turns off his lamp
