"You'll sleep here for the night, tomorrow your out of here." said the soldier. Mike was thrown into a tent full of everything he needed, food, water, and a bed to sleep on. Mike looked out the window and saw other tents being guarded by soldiers. Mike felt a tap on his shoulder, when he looked back he saw a little boy about 15 years old with a big smile. "My name is Joseph but my friends call me Joe, what's yours?" asked Joseph. "Wait, there's kids here?" asked Mike. Joseph busted out laughing. "DUH, it's the main reason why they made this camp!" said Joseph. Mike looked confused. "What do you guys do here?" asked Mike. "We do farm, we plant, we pick up trash, the food isn't really good but you'll get used to it!" said Joseph. "HEY, you two going to shut up soon?" asked the angry guard. "We should probably hit the sack, we have a big day tomorrow!" said Joseph. Mike lied down on his bed, it reminded of his old bed he used to sleep on with his wife. "Hey Joseph, did you see a woman here possibly named Lauren?" asked Mike. Joseph thought for a second. "HEY, turn off that lamp and go to sleep!" said the angry guard. "I'll tell you tomorrow." said Joseph. Mike nodded and closed his eyes. "Hey turn off that lamp please." asked Joseph.
"STOP YOUR HURTING HIM!" said Mike's mom. "I DON'T CARE, I'M GIVING HIM WHAT HE GETS." raged Mike's dad. Mike was helpless, he was being held down by the neck in the kitchen by his dad. Mike couldn't do anything, the only things he had free were his hands, so he did the unthinkable. He struck his middle and pointer finger into his dad's left eye. Mike's dad was crying in pain curled up in the corner of the kitchen. Mike's mom was trying to comfort him, Mike's mom noticed the door left open and saw no sign of Mike. Mike was only 19.
Mike opened his eyes to find a spider flying down to his face, Mike got frightened and fell out of his bed. When Mike fell he found no sign of Joseph, he also noticed that it was only 3:00 in the morning, so it was still dark. When Mike peeked out of his window he saw a light in the distance, Mike expected his Derringer to not be his pocket. Mike walked out and felt the cold morning air on his face, as he got closer to the light he heard a crowd and someone talking into a microphone. Mike was grabbed by his jacket and was dragged to a room. When Mike was in the dark room a light came on. "Mike, come on prepare for the fight!" said Joseph. Mike looked confused. "What fight, what's going on?" asked Mike. "Were going to fight 10 walkers, and if we win we get paid a delicious meal, and if we lose we become the meal." replied Joseph. Mike looked around the room and saw a glove with nails on it, a baseball with barbwire, and a machete. Joseph was holding a hunting knife, Mike grabbed the machete and examined it. "Coming to the ring, Joseph Maguire, and Mike Polarman!" said the announcer. The door opened, Mike walked out along with Joseph, Mike saw a crowd of people waiting for the fight to start. Mike saw the walkers caged up and ready to fight. "Hey Mike, always go for the brain it kills them!" said Joseph."NOW, RELEASE!"screamed the announcer. The walkers came piling out of the cage, Mike readied his weapon. Joseph jumped in and stabbed a walker in the head, a walker came towards Mike and he gave it a slice across the head. Joseph looked at Mike and laughed. "Damn Mike, this your first time?" asked Joseph. All of a sudden a walker came from behind and grabbed Joseph by the neck. Joseph grew terrified, and so did Mike. Mike went to help but a walker grabbed him by the leg. Mike threw his arm down to the walkers head killing it instantly, when Mike looked up he saw Joseph being devoured by 3 walkers. POW POW POW, gunshots were heard through out the arena. Mike ran back to the weapon room. "ZACH, THEY'RE BACK!" screamed a soldier.
