The Apocalypses: Pandemonium (By American_Jedi MaleGold MedalGold TrophySuper StarDiamondSilver Crown 6 days ago)

American_Jedi says DATE: January 12, 2019 TIME: 5:59 am LOCATION: Crestwood, Illinois PERSON: Zedrick Kuran aka 2K Zed AGE: 22 OCCUPATION: Unemployed College Student STATUS: Sleeping STORY TIME: After a long night of drinking, Zedrick crashes on his dorm room bed. There's a bright white-blueish light and a blast heard from miles away. The loud noise wakes Zedrick up. Suddenly his room starts to shake. The wave from the blast violently shatters his windows. He's knocked over and falls to the floor while his bed turns over on top of him. He's out and stuck between his dresser and metal framed bed. He's lives because of his bed, which protected him from serious harm. His college dormitory was 3 stories and no basement, he was on the top floor. Now the building is crumbled to the ground, but Zedrick is untouched by the damage. He wakes again, it's now 1:27 pm and everything around him is a chaotic mess. He's covered in dust and feeling half dazed, but mostly confused. He's trying to figure things out. A range of emotions hits him like a rock. He's surprised, shocked, sad, angry, afraid and disgusted all at once. He doesn't know what's going on or why this happened. He tries to focus himself, control his emotions. He looks around, maybe there's other survivors that need help. What happens next? I'll decide where the story goes based on the comments from other users and the way the voting goes

    Nothing but death surrounds him, the putrid stench of decay hitting his nose with a horrible force. He seems unharmed except for a few bruises and scratches, which are at the bottom of the list of things to worry about. He looks around, deciding it would be a good idea to get the hell out of there and maybe search for any survivors. With a painful groan he stands up, his body aching as he brushes the dust off. He grabs a bag, chucks the necessities in, and grabs a baseball bat for a weapon. He goes to each dorm room, checking to see if anyone is alive, but it slowly dawns on him that he is the only one on that level, and maybe the only one of the entire dorm, to survive. Normally the average person would break down and weep or cry, but not Zed. He is determined to survive, and nothing is going to stop him. He raids the vending machines, getting as much food and water as he can carry. He checks each dorm room for medicine, taking as much as would fit in his drawstring bag, as his backpack was full of survival materials and his other drawstring is already filled with food and water. He finds pocket knives in certain dorm rooms and takes them. This is enough for now, so he heads to the parking lot, having taken several car keys, and attempts to find the best one. Luckily, it appears that one of the students owned a Jeep, perfect for whatever hellish apocalypse had shaken the world. He decides to head to his parents house, as he wants to see whether they made it or not. When he arrives, the house is completely silent and dark. Upon switching on the lights, he sees a note on the kitchen table. "Zed, if you're reading this, we've already left. We waited to hear from you but decided to leave. You're a natural born survivor, take whatever you need from the house. We love you, Mom and Dad." Instead of feeling abandoned, Zed trudges up the stairs to his bedroom, exhausted already. He flops onto his bed, falling asleep. He dreams of demons and hellfire...

    His roomate survived but he clearly came out better. His roomate broke a few bones and really scratched himself. Zedrick and his roomate were lucky to be alive as many others perished.

    After observing this fact, young Zedrick gingerly touches himself to check for injuries. To his amazement, he is entirely unscatched. He see's piles and piles of dead corpses crushed on top of eachother under an unfathomable amount of dust and decay. Zedrick vomits at the atrocious smell and very nearly blacks out. While breathing heavily he sees a bright light up ahead slowly intensifying and coming closer. He sees . . . .

    I picked B. He searches his dorm and then goes outside to try and find other survivors, but he doesn’t find anyone. Everything is a mess. He keeps going further and further trying to find living people, but still turns up with nothing. He then realizes that there is no food, or even water anywhere around him, and he hasn’t eaten or drank for hours.

    Tries to at least find an alive person. As he looks around, he sees nothing. All the buildings are reduced to ash, and the dead bodies start to disappear. They start disintegrating one by one. He freaks out and starts running to see if anyone is alive. After a few minutes, Zedrick calms down and sits. He starts to think about what to do next. But suddenly, he hears thumping. He sees a giant arm coming out of the hole. The arm catches itself on the ground an climbs out. Another figure climbs out, about Zedrick's size. The giant person picks Zedrick up, and holds him. The other person is holding a sword turns his head around, and says "get ready to have your worst day in hell!", licking his lower lip.

    He searches all the bodies to see if they're alive, and taking anything of value. They're dead, they won't need it. He then tries to call the police but has no signal

    He leaves the dormitory and sees hundreds of dead bodies standing, menacingly glare at him with bloodshot eyes with sharp fangs.

    He looks around around trying to find someone still alive. He works himself down, third floor no-one, second floor no-one, but as he approaches the bottom floor he hears a laughter. He breathe out in relief, glad that someone else is alive. As he goes down he starts to feel warmer, warmer to the brink where he is sweating. As he gets to the bottom, he only sees fire, but closely he sees a man in it. The man is red and with wounds all over his body. He gasp in shock of this man, but then the man quickly stops laughing and turns. The man stares right at him with his flaming bone-chilling eyes. "you have been sentenced to hell"

    So he looks outside the window and notices a giant hole in the ground about a mile away. We're talking like several miles wide big. There's flame and ash spewing up from it, but the the most important things are the large, devil like creatures coming out. A gate to Hell has opened in the Earth.

    Immediately takes action, by packing important items into is bag, such as a torch, knife and a water bottle. He calms himself down before taking his first steps. He then slowly begins walking, taking in all the carnage and carefully looking around for any potential survivors. But after walking through the damage, he finds none. He eventually comes to a stop in the midst of the campus grounds. He sighs heavily and screams out help. But only silence accompanies him.

    He frantically fumbles around for his phone. With haste, his trembling hands dialed his home phone number, silently begging for an answer, his heart hammered with each ring. His face fell as the call went to voicemail. However, there was one message from just over an hour ago.

    He finds his roomate alive, but as Zedrick gets closer to him, something is definitely off about him. He's wearing a strange neon blue jumpsuit, which Zedrick knows for a fact he wasn't wearing before or even owned in the first place. His facing the other direction, staring at the ground.

    For B : The smell was what woke Kuran first. Then came the pain in his right arm, full of bruises. As the student struggled to crawl under his bed, he slowly stood over a large, unstable patch of concrete which used to be his roof. Bewildered, he attempted to brush away a what he thought was a blurred vision, but no. A thick and intimidating black smoke had replaced the sky over the campus. No, over the entire town. He could see columns of smoke rising up and feeding the large mass. Kuran was baffled, in disbelief. What had happened ? Why ? Why him ? Why his town ? Could it have been a nuclear bomb ? The news kept talking about the tensions between North Korea and the US. But why in Crestwood ? Could the other cities have been hit ? Could his family living in Chicago be affected as well ? Doubt had made his way into the young man, and as he started sobbing, alone and lost, without any idea of what to do, the smell that woke him up started to tickle his nose. He noticed that his stomach was rumbling quite strongly and, carried by the sweet scent of what seemed to be smoked bacon, he wandered a bit further in the debris of the former dorm building. He was blessing his luck for leading him towards a warm and savoury meal, what he guessed was the breakfast of an unfortunate student that would never have the chance to eat it, when it hits him. The smell had been growing stronger and stronger until Kuran finally reached a six feet deep trench, and the object of his fantasies was lying down, at the bottom of this hole. Although Kuran had not eaten since yesterday morning, he couldn't help but to puke the remains of booze from last night. He recognized a corpse, or maybe two, but it was impossible to tell apart a foot from a hand in this horrendous cluster of flesh. The student was left starving, wondering if the bitter taste in the back of his mouth came from the vomit, or his disgust of himself after having fantasized about human flesh...

    He finds his roommate alive, but he is roaming around bewildered with a livid, white face. Zedrick notices that his roommate is bleeding from the back of his head. Does he leave him alone or try to talk to him ?

    He finds his roommate alive, but barely human anymore. The emaciated figure would be mistaken for dead if it weren't for the fierce fire in its eyes. The roommate, whose name he could barely remember, had been lumbering around as if a zombie. Yet this man was no zombie. Upon sight of Kuran, the roommate's motion was now quick and smooth, gliding over the debris. His actions were clearly not human. No, he was an animal now. His eyes - the part that Zedrick had fixated on, radiated a mysterious aura that confirmed this, even if they also gave a sense of something intelligent. This creature wasn't close to any fathomable fiction in his mind. It was clueless as to what had happened, but at the same time new. The husk of his former roommate was surprisingly docile, even if it looked ready to attack. The contradictions flying through his head, however, could do nothing to draw attention away from his confusion. How had this happened? Surely, it was just an earthquake. But surely, it was so much more. Zedrick himself felt a part of him join one of these creatures - was he too going to become one with it?
