Though I commend everyone on experimenting with the Z option, the way you've presented it is essentially a combination of A and B. A stealth attack might be possible with a blade, but a baseball bat is too loud for such an action.
They don't know I'm here, so sneaking in might be my best option. Here goes nothing... John steels himself for his first direct confrontation with the undead. He takes several deep breaths whilst tightening his grip on the bat. The sight of a glass bottle on the ground gives John an idea however. He grabs the bottle and slips it into his pocket as he enter the apartment. The carpet muffles his footsteps as he makes his way toward the zombies feasting, his bat at the ready.
He begins his assault by clubbing the first zombie with a hefty swing, sending it to the ground with a sickening thud. He then hops to the side, following its head. He brings the bat crashing down on its face with all his might, caving in its skull. The other zombie rises to its feet after the death of its cohort, its dead eyes as gray as its decomposing skin. The sight sends a chill down John's spine, rooting him to the spot momentarily. He quickly shakes the feeling off though as the zombie lunges at him, its arms outstretched. John shoves his bat in its chest in an attempt to defend himself. The zombie staggers back, afford John an opportunity to strike. He bashes the zombie in the temple and uses his momentum to strike once more. A loud crack signifies the zombie's death as its body falls limp to the floor.
The noisy altercation soon draws the ire of the other two zombies, much to John's dismay. Time to put this bottle to use. John draws the glass bottle from his pocket then breaks it against the wall, arming himself with a small but jagged weapon. The first of the zombies is a gangly man with untrimmed facial hair and a ragged overcoat, possibly that of a homeless person's. He shambles toward John while letting out a ghastly moan, but if fails to faze John this time. He takes the offensive by charging the zombie and jamming the broken bottle into its head, propelling it to the ground. John doesn't have time to verify its death as the final threat remains.
The last zombie is a woman in a tan blouse and blue short shorts, John might even describe her as attractive if it weren't for the whole being a zombie deal. She assails him in the same fashion as the others, raising John's confidence as he prepares to counter attack. He sidesteps her grasp while striking the back of her right leg. She falls to one knee, allowing John to execute her with one last blow to the head. Her body slams into the wall as John wipes the sweat from his brow, amazed that he managed to defeat all of the zombies without a scratch. I got lucky this time. All of these zombies were malnourished and could barely stand. I'll have to be more careful from now on.
Once he's caught his breath, John walks to the woman's room and says through the door, "It's safe to come out now. They're all dead....again." It takes a moment for her to open the door, but she finally emerges after more reassurances from John. "You did all this?! I can't believe it." She says as she steps into the room, surveying the carnage of the battle. She is wearing a black form fitting dress with black heels, the last thing one should be wearing in a zombie apocalypse. "It wasn't easy, but yeah. Just don't expect me to do it too many more times." John replies in a winded tone, his pulse still racing. The woman chuckles at John's remark, but an awkward silence soon descends upon them. "So...I just want to say thanks. I wasn't sure if you were actually going to come..." The woman finally reveals, a hint distress accompanying her words. "I'm going to tell you the truth, I almost wasn't sure either. But I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I left you to die." John says to alleviate a bit of her concern.
"I guess we should introduce ourselves, huh? My name's Deborah Gonzales." Deborah says while extending an arm. "John Dillon, at your service. I hope you don't mind, but I'm gonna take a seat before my heart pounds out of my chest." He tells Deborah. John makes it a point to close the apartment door before sitting on her couch, the last thing they need is another undead interruption. "Be my guest, you've earned it. But what are we going to do now? I know there's more of these...things in the rest of the building. It's only a matter of time before more of them find us." Deborah voices her concern about what to do next. "I don't know. I hadn't thought that far ahead. First thing's first though, you need to put on something more appropriate. We won't make it very far if you're running around in a tight dress and heels." John abruptly states about her outfit.
"You're right. I'll change into something more zombie friendly. Help yourself to anything in the meantime, you deserve it." Deborah retreats to her room once again to change clothes. Looks like we've got some time to kill. I honestly don't know if it'd be better to move out or try to fortify this room. She was right most likely right about there being more zombies in the building, but we'd barely have any weapons if we went out into the city. Shit, this is going to be one hell of a day.
Current time: 11:52 a.m.
Inventory: Bloody Baseball Bat
Entourage: Deborah Gonzales: 100%, Unarmed
A) Scrounge up any supplies in the apartment and evacuate, it will only be harder to escape later on if they wait.
B) Hole up inside the apartment for a while, they're safe for the moment and John is in no hurry to leave if it means facing down more zombies.
C) Ask Deborah what she thinks they should do, John is willing to listen to any suggestion right now.
If you vote A, please choose what the destination should be:
1) McCoy's Lumber two blocks away, it is the closest location that would supplies as well as better weapons.
2) The sporting goods store three blocks away, it is further than the hardware store but might have better weapons as well as food.
3) The police station further inside the city, John doesn't know the exact distance but if anybody is organizing an evacuation effort, that is the place they'd be doing it.
4) The fire station across the street, they live right next to it but John never heard any sirens going off if anybody tried to flee from it.
5) Begin attempting to evacuation the city, they should try to evacuate the city as soon as possible though they lack numbers and supplies at the moment.
Deborah Gonzales: 40% (Fellow Survivor)
The approval will track John's current relationship with other survivors. You'll need to keep this in mind if you want other survivors to cooperate as a character with a low relation might present an obstacle later on.
Also, if anybody has any character requests, feel free to post them. I'll take characters from video games or original creations, whichever you want to see.
