Human Nature – Entry#24

“What else did Jake say?” Cheryl quizzed Tammy, who shrugged her shoulders.

“Nothing, really. I mean, it was a pretty short walk. But he’s definitely into me,” Tammy bragged.

I couldn’t believe it. Undead or not, some elements of human nature apparently just don’t change. Tammy shot me a look, “If you guys want me to seduce him, I’ll do it.”

Cheryl replied, “That’s pretty obvious. Just be careful. You heard what Dr. Williams said about the possibility of getting pregnant.” The three of us shuddered involuntarily in unison.

Cheryl turned to me, “OK. So, what next?”

I took a moment to think. “That’s a good question,” I answered. “Let’s see. The next possible move we could make would have to wait until Jake or someone else comes back.”

Cheryl suggested, “We should be getting our meds pretty soon.”

“Oh yeah,” I added. “How did I forget about that?”

“Speaking of meds,” Tammy interjected. “How are we going to leave here without them?”

The question hit me like a punch in the gut. It wasn’t just the walls trapping us here. It was our dependency on the pills that were preventing us from turning into monsters.
