Sorry for the Hiatus.

So, I bet all of you who read this story several times been wondering, "where's the continuation?"
Yeah, it's been more than 1 year since the last chapter. And yet, it stops in a thrilling situation. There's a reason behind this.
I've been thinking the story is quite good myself and maybe it will be such a waste to write this only on a blog like this. So, I;m planning to turn this one into a novel. Thankfully, there's a lot of plot and behind story that haven't been revealed yet, so it will still save from plagiarism. I live in Indonesia so this novel will be released in Indonesia first. Well, it was fun! And really, I mean it.
Thank you for those who have read through to chapter 5. I hope it was entertaining to you. I hope this story can get released. Oh, and you can visit my blog. If there any progress on Afterlife, it will be informed there. See you!

Chapter 5 - Under the Moon

There are a group of dogs standing before us, looking with hungry looks on their eyes. I can see there are 2 Golden Retrievers, 1 Rottweiler, 2 Chihuahuas, and 2 Bulldogs. There are 5 other dogs that I don’t know the name. I’m not an expert of dogs, so I can’t tell some of dogs there. Those dogs keep standing and don’t move. They growl and bark over and over at us.

“Damn, man!” Billy shouts. I can’t blame him, anyone will shout if they are in this situation.
“Shut up, Billy! We have to walk back slowly,” dad instructs us. We start to move back slowly and carefully, trying to not attract their attention.

Suddenly, we hear barks from behind us. I turn around and see 3 dogs there, a Rottweiler, Dalmatian, and Siberian husky. It seems that these dogs are the ones that howling back then. This situation is bad. We’re surrounded by these vicious canines. What should we do?

Chapter 4 - Reunion

I walk out from my house. I’m quite sure that my dad is still alive. The question is, where is he? If I were dad, where would I go? Is he going further out or back to the city? It will be hard to find him, especially when no one is around to be asked. Night is only a few hour away, I should think fast.

After thinking quite much about this, I decide to head back toward the city. I’m sure dad doing the same thing like me. I bet he’s trying to find me and head to the city. I shall try to search for place to rest that I miss when I came here before.

I walk around house by house, calling out to my dad. But, no matter how hard I called, no reply can be heard. Most of these houses owner are dead. Their deaths are horrible and hard to explain, just like those in the city. It’s really relieving though, when I saw some of those houses fully empty without any trace of death body. That’s mean there are more survivors around. But, how come I haven’t met them at all?

The sun almost sets now. The sky is red like burning. It’s really beautiful. I exhale some air from my lungs. I can’t find dad before nightfall. It’s best to stop searching for now.

I look up to the western sky, gazing at the setting sun. Suddenly, a smoke come out and goes up to the sky. A survivor?! It must be! There was no smoke before. The smoke comes from the big park to the west.

Chapter 3 - The Hope

I can’t sleep. I just killed that man, how can I sleep? I still can feel his tremble. The image of pain on his eye engraved on my memory. I know it had to be done. But, still. I’ve killed a man. Even though I tried my best to let it go, but my consciousness won’t let it go. My hands are trembling. I never thought taking someone lives will be this hard.

The other things that keep me awakes are questions. What really happen around here? First, those mysterious death. Now, I met a guy who’s still alive even though his body was split to half. I bet his pain was so dreadful. What if my parents are on the same condition? Will I have the heart to kill them? Should I continue this journey or runaway from unknown truth?

Chapter 2 -The Living Dead

Jake woke up only to find out that everything around him was chaotic. Electronics equipments were destroyed. Jake found out that people were dead in some mysterious way and now he was alone. Jake decided to find out his friends and families condition. With that in mind, Jake walked away to the setting sun . . .

It’s been a while since I woke up and found things were not right. The sun has set and stars have come out. The moon is full high in the sky. I can see the way clearly, thanks to the moon. Every single gadget is broken, my watch is not an exception.

Without nothing to count the time, I don’t know how long I’ve walk. My parents’ house and also my friends’ are in the outskirt. It’s kinda far from my apartment. I regret my decision to move from my parent’s house. Well, I thought that they deserve to get their happy life just the two of them, free of worries for their child. And I also want to get independent. But, with this distance... Well, it’s okay back then before today. I could get there by bus. But now, with nothing to ride, it’s just really troublesome. Hhh… I really hope they are fine, survivors just like me.

The scenery around me hasn’t change since I got out from my apartment. Broken cars are all over the road, with some have been burnt. Seems like everything that has electricity on it has been overloaded or something. I’ve been walking for hour, and I still can’t get used to those dead people lying disturbingly all over the place. Those and added with this full moon, things become eerie. I get a goose bump from this situation.

I don’t know how long I’ve walk. One thing that I know is that I walk in the right direction. By the look of my surrounding, I can say that my destination is not far from my current position. A glimpse of light of hope comes out from my heart. My legs are killing me right now. I think I should take a rest.

Chapter 1 - Ressurection

Is this true? That's the first thing that crossed my mind when I open my eyes. I woke at my apartment and realize that something wasn't right. The only thing I could remember was a great pain in my head and I could hear a lot of explosion. Then, everything went black. The next thing that I know is what I see right now.

I'm standing here before the window and really cannot believe what I see now. Smoke coming out from many building around the city. And all the buildings that I can see are decorated by holes. It's look like those buildings being bombed from the inside. My hands shiver from the scene. This scene is real. It just like scene from some war or apocalypse movie.

The next thing I notice is there are no sound at all. No horn, no engine's sound, not even scream and panicking sound you expect from this situation. Nothing at all. I can even hear my own breath and heart beats. This silence create an eerie feeling. I'm hoping there will be some sound, but it's useless. I wonder where are those people?
