Matt and Charlie wandered through the cluttered basement of the abandoned hospital, flashlights and machetes held in their bored hands.

“This is the most mind-numbing, tedious job we’ve ever taken,” Matt complained as they walked around overturned gurneys and obsolete hospital equipment.

Charlie kept his flashlight trained in front of them as Matt kept flashing his around on the various walls, ceilings and floors. “At least we’re getting paid,” Charlie said.

“I just wish something would happen,” Matt said as they turned the corner and came face to face with a horde of vacant-eyed zombies.

“That was prompt,” Charlie said.
