en I was about to open the door, the mother grabbed my hand.

And she shakes her head, “No,” she says, like a little child.

 

“Excuse me.”

 

After saying that, I gently pushed the woman away.

How about then? The woman falls down as easily as a broken doll.

 

“Mom!”

 

The girl watching it hugs her mom.

She looks like she’s facing a robbery.

While thinking so in the corner of my heart, I entered the classroom.

 

There was a picture from hell.

 

There are two human silhouettes I can see.

Probably the woman’s husband and one of her relatives.

 

One is an old man with white hair.

The other is a middle-aged man.

 

The middle-aged man is lying in the center of the classroom, in a position that looks like he tried to escape from something.

The mouth of the old man who was bending over him was dyed bright red.

A kitchen knife is stuck in his chest.

Probably, after the middle-aged man resisted the old man who mutated into a “zombie”, he thrusted a knife into him.
It was like that.

 

The muddy-eyed old man is still carrying meat to his mouth calmly, suffering a wound that would otherwise be fatal.

 

“…Ah.”

 

Even though I faced the reality that I had expected, my heart could not accept the facts.

I was flabbergasted.

The hallucinations that I heard yesterday certainly said,

 

―”Safe Area.”

 

I ruminate over the word.

At that time, you must have heard the word “safe zone”.

That’s why I was relieved.
That’s why I was off guard.

That’s why I slept like a log last night.

 

If I think about it now, I have to say that it was imprudent of me.

 

Indeed, when the back gate of this school was closed, at least it might have been possible to prevent the invasion of “zombies” outside.
At that moment, the inside of this school building may have been a “safe zone”.

However, after all, it is only temporary.
The situation is constantly changing.
Just because it was safe just before it doesn’t mean it’s still safe.

I had completely forgotten such a natural fact.

 

“When… was he bitten?”

 

I asked so that they could hear it outside the corridor.

There is no reply.

Of course, I didn’t need an answer either.

Probably, he got bitten before he arrived at the school.

And that was hidden by his family here.

 

I had seen an old man with an injured shoulder.

I heard he got injured by falling.

I was relieved with just that excuse.

 

“-My father-in-law is”

 

When I turned around, the woman I mentioned earlier turned her crying and swollen eyes toward me.

 

“My father-in-law is ill…”

 

I see, he’s sick.

Is it a human-eating illness?

Well, it’s not wrong.

 

“I’ll get rid of it, so keep your child far away.”

 

“Wait!”

 

The woman screamed.

 

“It will get better! It will definitely get better!”

 

Hmm.

I’m at a loss for words.

Because there was no material to argue.

If it was said that this was some kind of “illness”, I couldn’t say that “treatment” was impossible.

I would like to have an illness that allows me to survive even if my hands and feet are cut off.

Well, I wonder what I should do now.

 

“Ooooooooooooooooooooo…”

 

When I was hesitating, the old man noticed me, and turned his hollow eyes toward me.

He probably smelled fresh meat.
He stood up and slowly began to walk towards us.

One sigh.

With the sword still in its scabbard, I stabbed his chest.

The old man “zombie” who lost his posture collapses into the sea of ​​blood.

 

I thought for a while on what I should do.

 

I decided that it was dangerous to decide on this case at my own discretion.

I turn my heels and leave the classroom.

 

“That’s right.
However, leaving it as it is is a risky act, so let’s make a conclusion together.”

 

I intended to say it as brightly as possible, but the woman’s facial expression remained dark.

 

 

After a short while.

You can hear an irregular knocking sound from the closed classroom door.

 

 

 

The sound was from two different people.
