When I was nine years old, Viktor moved into the house next to mine. We were immediately best friends and were inseparable for years. When we got to highschool we were in the same cliques and hung out with the same people. We were nerds and both went on to the same College to major in Biology. Our sophomore year in College, Viktor’s family moved back to Chernarus and he asked me if I wanted to fly there with him and take the Winter Semester off to live with him. As he was my best friend I readily agreed and the next week we flew to Chernarus. He lived in a town named Vybor. He showed me around the town and we worked on our science experiments with some of the plants and animals surrounding the town. VIktor and I would spend hours searching the woods for plants that we could experiment on. His father was kind enough to teach us how to rig snares and catch birds and other forms of prey that we could then experiment on for our research. About two weeks into our stay, everything turned for the worse. When the outbreak started, we were both scared out of our minds. We boarded up the doors and windows so that the infection wouldn’t be able to reach us and his family. A few days later there were random knocking patterns on the doors outside. Viktor’s father opened the door to four sickly looking men with opens wounds all around their bodies right outside. He was attacked and overrun within seconds along with Viktor’s mother and sister. As Viktor and I ran for the back door, cursing violently as we tried to escape the soon overrun house, Viktor tripped and fell on the hallway rug. I hesitated and turned around to see the men were upon him. His arm was missing and they were working on one of his legs. Not stopping to look back, I continued running even as I left the town and continued to the wilderness. I batted tree branches out of my face as I sprinted as fast as my feet would carry me. Everything was a blur as I raced faster and faster, pumping my arms and breathing raggedly. Only when I physically could not continue did I collapse onto the ground and pass out from exhaustion.
