This audio cassette plays back a young woman's voice:

Friday, June 13th, 2008.

The quarantine in Monroeville has been temporarily lifted. I volunteered to enter the city as medic with one of the military units being dropped into West Monroeville. We had heard all sorts of rumors about the situation, but nothing... nothing could have possibly prepared us for... those *things* out there... *nervous laugh* I passed one as I was searching for a powered hospital; fortunately it didn't see me, and personally, I really didn't want to get any closer...

Luckily, I found St. Ulrich's Hospital before too long. There are several survivors here; most of them have been in Monroeville since the quarantine, but they all seem to be in good condition. Hopefully, that means I use the next few days to get a feel for my surroundings, and then, maybe, I can look for Big Sis... I think that Mom and Dad were pretty worried that they would lose me too, when I said I was headed to Monroeville, but... Sis is smart, and cautious, so if anyone could survive this, I'm sure she has. But... what if I don't find her before the quarantine ends? Or, even worse, what if they don't let us leave again?

*deep sigh*

*long pause*

I suppose it won't do me any good to worry about this right now. I'm here to help out the survivors as much as I am able. If... No. When I find Sis, then we'll do whatever we have to to get out of here.


Saturday, June 14th, 2008.

Another survivor showed up at the hospital this morning. Apparently, quite a few of the nearby buildings are heavily barricaded. I've been gathing supplies for first aid kits so that I'll be ready to scout around the neighborhood tomorrow.


Sunday, June 15th, 2008.

More survivors; doctors, it seems.

The radio has been broadcasting all night. Some of it's just chatter, but the rest of it... There are reports of "zeds"--zombies--breaking into buildings. I can't believe it...


One of them was lingering outside when I went to take a look around. I moved away as quickly as I could.


There's a lit factory two blocks east and one block south-east of the hospital; I found another survivor there. I managed to pick up some lengths of pipe. Maybe we can find a use for them. I couldn't find anything else that seemed useful. Maybe I can go back tomorrow, but right now, I'm just too exhausted.


Monday, June 16th, 2008.

The hospital was heavily barricaded sometime last night; now we can't get out. I've been trying to pull down part of the barricade, but I haven't had very much luck.


I managed to bring the barricades far enough down that I could squeeze out. There are two of... those things outside now. I hope they don't cause us any trouble. I came back to the factory; while searching, I found a crowbar, a portable generator, and a fire axe. They should be useful.

It's getting pretty late, so I'll should probably spend the night here. The factory is pretty inhospitable, but not much worse than sleeping in a hospital, I suppose. The generator here in the factory is even hooked up to a radio, so I won't be entirely cut off. And this way, I can look for fuel for the generator in St. Ulrich's in the morning.


Tuesday, June 17th, 2008.

No luck finding fuel. I'm heading back to St. Ulrich's.


*heavy breathing*

It f-finally happened; they--the... *deep breath* z-zombies broke through our barricades. They've been scratching at them all day... N-none of us could fight-- we're doctors and medics, s-sent in while the quarantine was down. They k-killed... they killed two of us before we had a ch-chance to escape. I... I ran... I found a building that I could get into. I don't know if... anyone else from the hospital found anywhere safe. I... *high pitched squeak* I think... I'm going to be sick...


Wednesday, June 18th, 2008.

I went to check on the survivors who remained at the hospital and patched up their wounds, then I returned to the Yenne Building to get some rest.


Thursday, June 19th, 2008.

No... no survivors are left in St. Ulrich's Hospital. I don't think there are enough of us in the area to clear out the... zombies that remain there. The Yenne Building has no radio and no power. We can hide well here, but we're cut off from any possible news from the rest of the city. Tomorrow, I'd like to search for another safe, powered building.


Friday, June 20, 2008.

When I woke up this morning, I started walking west. I passed through a large field with a barn, and then entered Oak Hill. Currently, I'm staying in a factory with some other survivors. Nobody appears to be wounded. The only thing that bothers me is that there are four bodies outside... There's a lit hospital nearby, but I can't get past their barricades. There's also an auto repair, a fire station, and another factory here. Later, I'll try to see what else is in the area.


Saturday, June 21, 2008.

I took a quick scouting trip outside today. A woodland starts a few blocks south of here, but I didn't go into it. There are quite a few police departments and fire stations in the area; most of the aren't powered and are too heavily barricade to get into. I suppose that's a good sign, all things considered; it probably means that there are plenty of survivors hiding out around here. And there seems to be quite a few bodies around, but not many zombies.


I arrived at St. Hubertus's Hospital this evening; it's not far from the factory I was at. It's well-barricaded and has a generator, so I think I'll stay here for a while. A few of the survivors had minor wounds, but they were easily patched up.


Sunday, June 22, 2008.

More survivors showed up this morning. They reported break-ins at St. Ansgar's Hospital and Vance Road Police Department. One of them, a woman named Sarah, said that the southern part of the suburb is ruined, and that there are zombies in the woodland that are headed our way. To be honest, I'm not sure there's much we can do except to get supplies ready for when we have to move again.


Monday, June 23, 2008.

The zombies broke down the last of our barricades last night. They hadn't actually entered the building--we managed to keep the doors blocked with a few lengths of pipe--but most of the survivors fled. I started moving back north, too. I'm back at Wilde Auto Repair, near the factory I stayed in a few days ago. I'll rest up, then search farther to the north.

I wonder how Sis is doing... *long pause* Sarah said she came from Newtown; that's where Sis lived before the quarantine. I should have asked Sarah if she had heard any news of Sis. It probably would have been a long shot, but... well, it's too late now. Sarah also fled when the barricades fell, but said she was headed north, too. Maybe we'll meet again.


Tuesday, June 24, 2008.

I had to flee Wilde Auto Repair. Many of the buildings in this area are ruined or too heavily barricaded... I've seen people jumping across rooftops or windows to get into these buildings. Maybe I need to build up enough courage to try this as well.


Wednesday, June 25, 2008.

When I woke up this morning, I was alone in the factory. *short laugh* It's kind of creepy... The building's barricades are still up, and I don't dare waste energy taking a look around when I know they must be outside. I plan on resting up a bit more so that I'm ready to leave if and when the barricades come down.


There are far to many zombies in Oak Hills. I'm back in West Monroeville, but I'm not sure how much longer I want to stay here, either.


*low muttering* I didn't get a chance to record yesterday, so it must be... uh... *regular voice* Friday, June 27, 2008.

Yesterday... Yesterday zombies broke down the barricades and entered the building I had been staying in. One of them got a hold of me; took a couple chunks out of my arm with it's claw. I... *short laugh* I'm actually kind of surprised I can talk about this so calmly...

I remember waking up when I was grabbed by a zombie. And I vaguely remember jumping from one of the windows and onto roof of a nearby bank to get away after the zombies got in... I think I *short laugh* uh, passed out once I reached the police department. I mean, it was a minor wound, I'm fine; someone here at the Raisden Row Police Department patched me up, but I don't really remember the trip over here.

There are so many survivors here! And the power's on; we even have a radio. Even the neighboring factory and warehouse have power. There are a couple of bodies outside, but very few zombies in the area, as far as I can tell. There is one piece of disturbing news, however; one of the folk on the radio mentioned that the quarantine is being replaced in two weeks... *sigh* That sounds about right.


Saturday, June 28, 2008.

Most of the news that comes over the radio is grim, but this part of West Moneroeville seems safe enough right now.


Sunday, June 29, 2008.

More bad news over the radio. All quiet in our little corner of Monroeville.


Monday, June 30, 2008.

There are a couple zombies outside today. I don't know if they're just stragglers, or if it's a sign that the horde is headed our way.


Tuesday, July 1, 2008.

I ran out of first aid kits yesterday; today I'm headed out to restock. St. Charles's Hospital seems to be one of the closest, though it's still quite a trip; I've decided to record today's entry during my walk. The area around Raisden Row still seems pretty safe. We're still getting disaster reports on the radio, but no--

*gasp* Oh, no... No, no, no.


The area south of Raisden Row Police Department is ruined. The hospital was deserted, but in better shape than most of the surrounding area. But a couple of zombies were wandering around; it's probably only a matter of time... I only managed to find enough supplies for one first aid kit before heading back to Raisden Row.


Wednesday, July 2, 2008.

More survivors arrived last night. No other news, it seems.


Thursday, July 3, 2008.

Word is that a horde is headed our way. I'm out of first aid kits...


Friday, July 4, 2008.

A couple of zombies broke in last night, but they were pushed back. We lost our generator and radio. I took out two that were standing outside this morning. There's only one left out there, but there's a pile of bodies. Hopefully we can keep this up.


*crashing, groaning, gunshots in background*

It's early Saturday morning; or late Friday night. The zombies broke down our barricades. We're fighting back, but there too many of them! Ugh!



The rest of the tape records only sounds of fighting and zombies moaning.
