Apocalypse: Prologue

They stood atop the shed as the fire consumed every other structure around them. The horde came in from all directions, seemingly undisturbed by the raging inferno that burned into their flesh and roasted their feet.
“Look at me!” He said, holding her face in his hands. “Look at me God damn it!”
She turned to look at him, breaking her focus on the approaching harbingers of death. Her brown eyes were wide open, fear clearly embossed on them. A tear slid down her face and he cleaned it with his thumb.
“God knows this is the worst possible time to say this,” He began, raising his voice to be heard over the mini explosions that rocked the vicinity “But you have to know. You have to know that since the very first time I saw you, I’ve been in love with you.”
“Osa-” She tried to cut in but he stopped her.
“Let me finish. I love you and nothing in this world can change that. If this is how it ends for us, I want you to know that I love you. If we get one more chance at life, I’m going to spend all of my time showing you how I feel.”
The tears flowed freely down her face as the first few zombies reached the shed and began hitting the walls furiously, trying to climb the weak structure.
“Osas, your timing is really pathetic, you know?” She joked as sobs racked her body “Of all the times to tell me, you chose the moments before we become zombie food.”
He smiled, eyes glistening with tears.
She placed a hand on his face. “I love you too, Osas, and if we make it out of this alive, I’m going to spend all of my time receiving your love, and giving you mine in return.”
He pulled her and kissed her passionately.
The ever growing number of zombies continued banging on the shed as the already weak structure began swaying violently.
“Stay behind me, and follow everything I do.” Osas said as they broke their embrace.
The shed collapsed. The roof slid forward, hurling its occupants to the floor.
“Get ready!”
He muttered a silent prayer as the shed fell flat.
Zombies converged on them from all directions.
