After viewing most of Europe and moving his way onwards to the Asia continent something happened before they landed. The outbreak, once they arrived at the airport, his family and him saw on the news the horrors of what was happening all over. Unable to get out of the country they tried to move any way they could by private plane or car. They heard that on the eastern coast of Russia everything was much calmer out there. So they decided to head that way, after reaching a town called Kamenka, they got the first sight of what was happening. They decided that the main land was to dangerous, after leaving the town and heading to the city of Electro, they came face to face with a band of military vehicles. His father went to go talk to them, unable to hear what they were saying, Allen knew something was wrong. The soldiers raised their guns, his father tried to back away but they shot him down, his mother told them to run, and as they were running the soldiers started to shoot at them. After a couple yards his mother fell to the ground, he looked back and saw bullet holes. Still running with his sister they disappeared into the forest, After surviving for several weeks scavenging, they found a boat on the coast line. After a couple of days on the waters his sister began to get sick. Running low on food he tried to give what little he had to his sister to keep her health up, but one day before they found land she died of sickness. Fear for what his sister may become threw her body over the side of the ship. After he reached land, he had know idea where he was, all he knew was that he had to survive. He swore, after everything he saw and experienced, that no one would take him from the land of the living. He was going to do what ever it takes to live, on for his family.
