UN ZOMBI EN EL SIGLO 23copyright protection3PENANA8MeaQiHOpp

Capítulo 11: My storycopyright protection3PENANAGaFC7wecsq

Although it sounds like a male version of rayita, I woke up the next morning with the sunshine coming through the window and the singing of the morning birds. I would have stood up and sang a song from Frozen's film, but I'm not rayita. Besides, my throat hurt as much as the side of my tongue.copyright protection3PENANAE3qvgwlKFa

Hailey wasn't by my side, but I didn't have to wonder about her absence as she was entering the room just then.copyright protection3PENANAWNWbYNtFBT

“Good morning, Vladimir. Good thing it's a holiday and my parents are sleeping late. It is best to leave early because there will not be a lot of staff at the hospital for friends.”copyright protection3PENANA5i4LUbh9oK

“Good morning Hailey, you're right, let's get going.”copyright protection3PENANAz3OZy5wUPc

Maybe it was the fact that these days I was walking around like a zombie, but I felt my right knee hurt, something like that had never happened in my life.copyright protection3PENANA4L01WYPqEr

I tried to keep the pain and fatigue away by thinking about other things, and indeed I had arrived at the hospital earlier than I had expected on "autopilot". Unlike the last time I was here, I didn't enter through the front door, but my friend took me around the hospital and we arrived at one of the back doors of the medical center.copyright protection3PENANAkJJouEAMNY

Hailey put the palm of her hand on a kind of panel and then her eyes stopped focusing on what was in front of her. Somehow she was hacking into the door security system.copyright protection3PENANAxn1lnzqUug

“All right, we're good to go.”copyright protection3PENANA6y26AZ4ppI

Our goal was to find a bio-neural scanning machine to find out what was happening to me. It was important to be careful that the doctors or other staff did not discover our presence.copyright protection3PENANARKrA8WfJI3

“Well, I'm looking at the map right now," Hailey said to me, looking right at my face. As she explained to me earlier, her brain was a computer and her eyes operated like a monitor.copyright protection3PENANAHgqJBOj2IN

"We have to go up to the third floor and go to the radiology room.”copyright protection3PENANAiOmlUWkYmK

Since our goal was not to be discovered, we didn't go down the corridors and stairs of normal traffic. Instead, we took the emergency stairs and reached our destination.copyright protection3PENANAHdu9OC53mO

“This is it, let's go in.”copyright protection3PENANA634xMGl6J4

“Are you Sure? there's no sign here that says this is the radiology room.”copyright protection3PENANAT2SfnMbHLy

 “Yes, I'm sure” she confirmed it, and then hacked back into the door security system.copyright protection3PENANArsMVBAyHEV

We just walked in and I realized that this couldn't be a medical machine room, more like a clean, catalogued drug store on their shelves.copyright protection3PENANAvLYAjLhER0

“Hailey, this can't be the room we're looking for.”copyright protection3PENANAIL2B0qnc79

“I know, but I'm sure the doctor is in the radiology room and I'll be able to find a bio-neural tracking device here. It doesn't give as full a scan as I'd like, but we can start there.”copyright protection3PENANAKzBxvc84UM

Hailey asked me to sit facing the door and to be on guard in case a nurse came.copyright protection3PENANAZpyX0RJhwB

So I did, but I was tempted to turn around and see my friend, but I heard a couple of steps coming down the corridor. Two men were approaching the door. As tense as the situation was, my heart was calm.copyright protection3PENANAhfmkQnKezS

The guys went into the front room.copyright protection3PENANAnkrYRXbZ15

“That was close...” I said as I turned around. A hypodermic needle of enormous size was aimed at my jugular.copyright protection3PENANAM0vkYvbINH

Hailey put all her strength into injecting me with God knows what, but I held her arm tight to stop her from continuing.copyright protection3PENANAj5WGpN3a1D

“Hailey, what the hell...?”copyright protection3PENANA3oXvmPsyPt

The girl did not give up, in one quick move her free arm avoided being grabbed and then scratched my face.copyright protection3PENANAEBu9WsF8bs

Because of my uncomfortable position, we both fell to the ground, however, the struggle did not end in the least.copyright protection3PENANAQvxNbWAf7B

Even though I was a soldier, I couldn't get the girl off my back. When I saw her eyes, I understood.copyright protection3PENANATbZRGmG8Vw

Hailey's pupils were very dilated, abnormal amounts of adrenaline rush through her body.copyright protection3PENANACz86I4zncL

“Hailey... What's wrong with you? Stop it!”copyright protection3PENANAP2gmPsjpHr

In the struggle we both kicked the shelves and several medical samples and drugs fell on the floor making a lot of noise. This, however, did not diminish Hailey's mortal desire.copyright protection3PENANA1BC1sin9ri

As the tip of the needle penetrated my throat, the door opened and the two paramedics, alerted by the sound of the front, proceeded to hold Hailey.copyright protection3PENANAF4RNbASLY5

“No, don't take me away from my beloved again!”copyright protection3PENANAwN7MaXeunW

More paramedics arrived and holding on tightly to my friend who kept yelling, took her away from me.copyright protection3PENANAWoxyp0RN9j

Hailey's parents arrived and I finally found out the whole truth. She had some kind of schizophrenia, which is why Hailey didn't want her parents to know about me. She thought I was real... a real person.copyright protection3PENANANWslvRmmFw

Remember what I told you about zombies being somewhat aware of their environment? Well, that's exactly what happened to me when I told this story. I am a zombie and was once a soldier, that and all the fiction movies like Terminator and My boyfriend is a zombie, created a kind of "reality" that came to fill in the gaps in my mind regarding the perception of the surrounding reality.copyright protection3PENANAFLm3JZBivV

I'm over a hundred years old and I don't decompose, the reason? Well, it all goes back to World War III, which I spoke of in the beginning. The radiation that was spreading around the globe threatened the existence of the human race. However, a solution was found: Nano-machines that could absorb the radiation.copyright protection3PENANAO6L9PoFvfF

The atmosphere was purified, but the majority of the world's population was already dying of cancer, so the use of nanomachines in humans was approved.copyright protection3PENANAz3B1p7SLty

The nano-machines did what they could, in fact they are still struggling today to cleanse our bodies of radiation. They constantly regenerate the cells every day, however it is not as effective in regenerating the neurons.copyright protection3PENANAi9jEc3DOl9

Yeah, those are the zombies. The common people of the 20th century, people who no longer read the newspaper, but believed in the false news of the internet; people who did not listen to good music, but dedicated themselves to listening to the perreo, hip hop, or cumbias villeras argentinas.copyright protection3PENANAJagvk5TZB9

Yes, those are the zombies, people obsessed with watching the cell phone screen 24 hours a day or taking selfies; people who mumble against the government, but yet don't have the courage to kick the crap out of those who govern us.copyright protection3PENANAFachbBo4nR

Mario Vargas Llosa said that we live in the "civilization of the spectacle", this also leads us to live in the culture of indifference and wait for a messiah to come and save us, when we ourselves are the ones who have always had the power to change the world for the better.copyright protection3PENANADF1Wjd0X1l

Very few people were saved from the radioactive apocalypse, and their descendants now make up the normal population of people on the planet.copyright protection3PENANA6LwngQt9Q4

The doctors are coming to examine me, they'll assess all the damage that Hailey did to my mind. I don't hold a grudge against her, despite the drugs or manipulation with VR May... I just hope she's okay and her life is back to normal. copyright protection3PENANAivfvMr7awu

My name is... was Vladimir, and now I say goodbye, I hope that everyone in your hearts will consider me your "friend".copyright protection3PENANA29935th6qi
