Applause erupted throughout the stage, and Aiden was growing steadily nervous behind the curtain. Eve poked him. He turned to her, giving her a look.
I don't see Sam.
"Stop looking for him, I'm sure he's there somewhere," she said calmly.
"Right. Sorry. But, this is it, right? This is going to be awesome."
"Yes, it is," and with that she put her arms around him and kissed him, which she had never done before. It was time to go out on stage.
Aiden walked quickly out with his electric guitar, and took the mike. People were cheering, and the thrill suddenly resounded through him. This was it. He couldn't miss the moment.
"Hey, guys, how are you doing tonight? Aw, heck, let's just play the music. Now, let's see a zombie do this!" And with that, he cued the drums. But they never came.
Instead the entire back wall of the concert hall imploded, and hundreds of figures began to flood through.
Hundreds of zombies.
