It was Day 83 inside of the local sporting goods store when Julie and Charlie heard a loud crash. The couple had been holed–up at a Bass Pro Shop since the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. It was a complete absurdity to think that zombies could actually exist one day, but they became a reality after the first reported attack occurred at a pediatrician's office. After that, the virus spread across the US in a matter of days.

The few remaining survivors all have different versions of how everything started, but the prevailing version is that an unvaccinated kid got sick at school and was taken to a pediatrician's office to get treated. As soon as the doctor saw the boy, she called an ambulance because his condition was worsening by the minute and rapidly became life–threatening.

Before the doctor was done with the phone call, the boy stopped breathing and all of his organs shut down, but his eyes stayed open and he seemed like he was still alive. In a split second, he went from looking sick to downright evil. He jumped on the doctor and bit off a chunk of her neck causing her to drop dead and turn into a zombie in approximately 7 seconds.

The medical assistants rushed in when they heard the doctor screaming and were attacked by the boy and the freshly zombified pediatrician. In the blink of an eye, the whole place turned into a bloodbath and in less than two minutes, the facility was overrun by the zombies, or as they are now called, The Unvaccinated.

Almost everyone inside the building was turned into an Unvaccinated. Some people ran away but didn't get far because, unfortunately, the Unvaccinated were the kind of zombies that are fast and extremely violent. Their rage and desire to kill makes it almost impossible to get away from them.

It was complete chaos as the Unvaccinated burst out of the building and into the parking lot and surrounding businesses. They attacked anyone they could get their bloody hands on. In an instant, everyone in the shopping center was turned into mindless killing machines. They multiplied quickly and started an unstoppable tsunami of carnage through the streets.

Thousands of people were killed and turned in less than an hour. By the time the National Guard and Army arrived to try to stop them, there were just too many to control. The government basically decided to take an "everyone for themselves" approach, and that just added to the insane pandemonium the country was experiencing.

The initial attack lasted almost 3 days. Some people were able to escape and go into hiding, but the majority didn't survive the epidemic. The lucky ones boarded up their houses, or just got in their cars and drove as far away as they could. Some even made it into Canada and Mexico before the two countries closed their borders.

Charlie and Julie chose to hide at a Bass Pro Shop because they figured they would have weapons, food, water, and supplies to survive for more than a few months. Their other choice was Costco, but they couldn't get in because they didn't have a membership there. Just kidding. Everyone thought of going to Costco and it only took one Unvaccinated to get in and infect everyone in there.

As soon as they got into the sporting goods store, Julie and Charlie boarded it up. They chained up the entrances, set up camp on the second floor, and started working on setting up booby traps around the building. They positioned almost every crossbow, rifle and gun in the shop so they could go off if the Unvaccinated stepped on or ran over the wires they placed all over the store.
