Dias De Muertos
Martes Part 1
November 11th 2042
The rain started yesterday and it won’t stop. The rain was abnormal and if you had asked me before what I found abnormal about it I wouldn’t have been able to answer you. Only after a day later can I adequately answer it. It was braquish in color and looked extremely dirty. Luckily for me I hadn’t been scheduled for work so I was able to watch it and stay dry. Despite the torrent it was a strangely silent rain. No other sounds that you would normally hear in a city neighborhood. I should have known better now, I understand that. But for the love of god do NOT go outside.

The first bite was reported two nights ago. A freaking zombie apocalypse!!! Or at least that’s what my buddy Hector says. He is an extremely serious guy and yet I can never take him seriously because of his extremely thick Spanish accent. I know you think I am racist or something, but Hector is the person I trust more than anyone. But he also is the type who believes in the conspiracy theories peddled on goofball sites like InfoWars. Alex Jones is a fucking moron. But Hector isn’t quite that insane. He believes that the rain is causing the zombification. He ended up being right. Tonight there was an emergency broadcast from the CDC. A somber looking scientist who looked as though he hadn’t slept in about 24 years spoke brusquely into the microphone. “There is a bizarre amount of CO2, methane and nitrogen in this rain. Furthermore there are three unidentified chemicals that we believe to have been recently created as the result of some freak mutagen. There is no question that this was a created product and that we are looking further into it.” Hector called me immediately after this. “Fuck, man. I think I know who did this” Hector said as soon as I answered the phone. “C’mon man, really” I replied in the most neutral tone I had. “Dude, this is a big pharma creation” Hector barked back. “I never figured you for a hippie Hec” I said trying to hide my smirk. “Well I did used to work for the organization in question” he snapped back. Suddenly we were both silent. “Is it bad” I asked quietly. Hector didn’t reply immediately but when he did he simply said yeah and then hung up.
