So here we go
Also I'll come up with place holder names
It's late into the year a horrible Snow Storm is brewing and a small town in Alaska is about to change FOREVER.
The story follows a young man (Eric) maybe mid to late 20's he lives in a cabin a couple miles from town. He likes being on he's own but does have an Alaskan Husky (Frank) to keep him company. While watching the news one night he hears stories of multiple states increasing in murders. Except these aren't just regular murders. It's people being snatched and being eaten alive. He also hears that major riots are breaking out in States like Los Angeles (Fear Reference). Before the power cuts out the news broadcaster asks people to stay in doors.
At first (Eric) seems a bit spooked but than brushes it off as "This is a small Alaskan town. Ain't nothing going to happen here".
He realises he's running low on Food so he decides to walk into town. It's only a 20 minute walk and he likes the excercise. The Storm is starting to get bad but visibility is still pretty good. He eventually makes it into town with he's dog. However when he makes it to town he notices things being very quiet. Even more so than usual. It's only been 2 days since he was last in town. He says that the local stores are closed so than decides to go to he's friends bar. He sees that it's locked but that the lights are on. He starts calling out for he's friend to let him in but he hears no answer. He than begins to start heading home when the bar door opens. There is he's friend (Allen) but he's shaking and pale. Eric wonders what the hell is wrong with him to which Allen says.
Allen: "Ain't you been watching the news?".
Eric: "Yeah..... Barely. But enough to know some weird things are going on".
Eric is quickly told to get inside so he does. He's dog to. He sees some of the towns folk in here. But notices that quite a few are missing. He asks where everyone else is to which Allen tells him that.
"2 nights ago one of the usuals at the bar. Came here but was bleeding from he's arm. He blew it off as "some Crack head having an episode". However after a while he started to sweat. He's skin was turning pale and the heat that was coming from him was enough to melt an ice berg. After about 3 hours he collapsed onto the floor. Allen called the emergency services but was told they were busy but would try to get there as soon as possible. One of the other customers at the bar tried to give him CPR but while doing so is grabbed by the now Dead Man. The good samaritan's neck is ripped out and only after a few seconds is dead himself. Everyone starts fleeing the bar only to realize. Other people are fleeing their homes as many loved ones are now dead but roaming the streets. Allen tells everyone to get into the bar which is now empty and the remaining towns folk get in.
Eric is horrified by this. Allen than replies that about a day later one of those "Dead People" tried getting in the bar. It was banging on the door making noise so Allen went out to dispose of it. He had a knife that he always had behind the bar. That and a Shotgun. But the last thing he needed was to make more noise. At first he was slashing at this "thing" to no avail than he tried stabbing it in the brain which thankfully put's it down. Over the next day. Food was starting to go low so Allen decided to try to get food from the Store. While in their he is attacked and almost bitten by one of those things. When he returns Hungry and Afraid people start to panic as they are running out of food. People start going pale from the cold and lack of food. So Eric decides to send himself and a couple people to the store. He tells he's dog to wait at the bar with Allen to which the dog complies.
Eric and 2 other Survivor's leave the bar and make their way to the store but notice that the storm is really bad now. They can see 5 feet in front of them and the cold is getting worse. They make their way to the store. Check around for any of those Monsters. Gather food, drinks, blankets,portable Heaters and weapons. They load it into a couple trolley's and make their way back to the bar. On their way back the notice outlines of people. And softly call out to see if it's a survivor. It isn't. The start trying to make their way back to the bar but hear a loud sound. The smell in the air is putrid and what sounds like the moans of a few hundred people quickly gets the team of 3 to start rushing back to the bar. Once they get back the see that the bar is almost empty. Dead bodies litter the floor and a couple of those "Things" are feasting on the corpses. Than one by one the dead people start getting up. Eric tells them to aim for the head and they start taking down as much of these things as possible. Eric now with some time to think starts panicking and wondering where he's dog and friend are. Allan who locked himself in the cellar with Eric's dog and 5 remaining people. That. Come out when they hear Eric. They quickly throw the bodies out when Eric tells them a huge group of those things are approaching. They hide out hoping they will pass. Allen turns off the bar lights and they wait. For what seems like forever all they hear are groans and foot steps. Eventually one of those things gets bumped by another and gets pushed into a window. The loud sound than attracts the large amount of the dead. And the group panic. Eric tries calming everyone down but Allen tells him "Go out through the back and get out of this town" Eric doesn't want to leave he's friend but Allen insists. They don't have time to argue so Eric complies and leaves with the 7 other people and he's dog.
Allen takes out he's shotgun aims it at the door and waits. The door than smashes open and he starts blasting.
Eric tells everyone to come back to he's cabin. So they get their trolly of supplies and start making their way there. Occasionally having to kill some of the dead that are in their way. They eventually get to the cabin and try to relax.
Seeing as Eric's cabin is big and pretty secluded none of the dead make their way up there.
The next day when visibility is better they hear a knock on the door.
Eric looks through the peephole and notices Allen. He's happy to see him. And they try to decide what to do next. Thankfully an hour after Eric got back to the cabin the electricity started working again. So they turned on the TV and heard the broadcaster talking about an Evacuation point. 30 Miles west of Eric's Cabin. With no other options they decide to make their way there.
This is where the story ends.
