The morning dawned, once again, with no new unpleasant surprises. The only sound to break the twilight silence was the sound of Moirae's laboured breathing, as she wrestled with the zombie infection. Blankets pulled up to her chin, her complexion pale and clammy, she was barely aware as Dr. Geeklet hunched over her, an expression of intense concentration on hir face.
Geeket reached into hir medical supplies bag and withdrew a hypodermic syringe; it was one of the last remaining doses of the zombie virus vaccine in hir possession. Carefully, Geeklet administered the medicine, injecting it into Moirae's arm; then she stepped back and held hir breath.
It took a few minutes for anything to happen; then Moirae coughed, her eyelids fluttering. It was clear that the woman was fighting for her life. Quickly, Geeklet replaced the water-soaked rags on Moirae's forehead in an effort to combat the raging fever.
At last, when the first few rays of sunlight poked through the Costco warehouse's skylight windows, Moirae's eyes opened. Geeklet tensed, bracing for the worst...but then, slowly, Moirae flashed a weak smile. Geeklet sank into a chair with exultant relief. The worst was over; Moirae was alive. She had prevailed over the killer virus.
With Moirae's healing, the zombies had been expelled from the base for good. The morning sun filtered down, chasing away the gloom, carrying with it the promise of a new hope. The Survivors would endure, and thrive, safe at last. Perhaps...someday...life would once again return to normal. It would take a lot of work, but perhaps, just perhaps, civilization could be rebuilt.
Congratulations, Survivors! You have triumphed!
