The kids were so happy to be in Europe on “vacation.” The weather was mild, and they were enjoying the sights. I hadn’t told them about the virus. They’d heard rumors in school. Fathers sick and in hospital, families disappearing….
No one was prepared for a virus like this. Trendy zombie fiction hadn’t prepared us. The reality of Ebola hadn’t prepared us. When my husband got it, he went mad like all the rest. They annihilate their families, then go on to kill others.
It only affects males. I wonder if the world will be more peaceful, once they’re gone.
