It is now 6 p.m Time for lockdown. He closes doors, puts shutters on windows and goes to his bed with a gun in one hand and Jack on his other side.
It was a normal day the next day. They were on a move, they were on walk. Ready to hunt another deer for food. Deer very quietly ate, Owen approaching nicely and steadily. When he is 50 feet away orders Jack to go. Deer runs for his life and Jack runs behind him to kill him, Owen with a gun running behind. Deer went inside a building and so did Jack. Owen screamed at Jack not to go in but he went inside. Jack didn’t know all the Hemocytes were inside.
Owen did not have any option and hence he too entered the building. Hemocytes hawling. It was 4 p.m. By 5 Owen had to go home but what he could do he cannot leave Jack to die.
He took out his Gun and a torch. He slowly went in. He could smell Hemocytes. He saw nothing on the first floor. Then he went to the 1st floor. He could hear some noises. He was sweating a lot. Scared a lot. He slowly opened the door and he saw something running towards him.
He could hear heavy breathing… It was nearing… And it was none other than Jack. He had caught Deer. And in excitement he barked. Hemocytes got to know… Owen and Jack were very slowly moving. If they made any other sound, they were dead.
Owen was carefully moving but then he stepped on a coke glass bottle. And as he turned back Hemocytes were coming with full force. He was on the second floor. He shot a few but the bullets of his gun got empty and he only had his legs to escape. He ran for his life. Jack got through a small hole and escaped. Slowly Hemocytes were nearing. Owen with a torch in his one hand running as fast as he could. Hemocytes nearing more…HE was running – Hemocytes nearing…
And there one Hemocyte jumped on Owen and as he was going to bite his shoulder, owen had jumped the 2nd floor window. And so did 4 more Hemocytes. Owen quickly turned 180 degrees and the hemocyte clinging to him was smashed and another fell down. One of them was in anger coming near him but was smashed by Jack and was burnt. All were burned to death. They couldn’t bear the heat of the Sun. This time Owen was saved.
Owen now decided to quickly go home. From where ever he had gone he threw oil so that Hemocytes don’t get his scent. He reached home get his clothes off and take a bath and same for Jack. Then it was time for lockdown. In his dreams, he usually dreams of his wife and son. He was so alone. His past memories were so horrifying that he always thought it was a nightmare.
That day the same dream came and he woke up. As he woke up the alarm rang. He went outside and while eating he opened the book of TIMINGS of Sun Rise and Sun Set. He noted the Sun Set timings and set an alarm in his watch.
He went to his spot. He always went at 2:00 near the port area where the frequency is good and always sent radio signals and messages. His Message was-
“My name is Owen Neville,
I am a survivor living in New York City.
I am broadcasting on all AM frequencies.
I will be at the South Street
Port every day at midday.
When the sun is highest in the sky.
If you are out there,
if anyone is out there,
I can provide food,
I can provide shelter,
I can provide security.
If there is anybody out there,
you are not alone…”
