Looking for love can be deadly… 

You know how it goes.  You go out, hoping to meet someone.  You wade through your fair share of brainless automatons, lifeless bodies, and ravenous undead good at passing as human.   

The more you go out, the less hope you feel and the colder your body gets.  But you keep at it.  All you need is one beating heart to match your own before yours stops pumping altogether.  How hard can it be to find one living, breathing human in a city full of bodies?  


It’s hungry business.

My Review:

I have a love/hate relationship with short stories and am so happy that this one falls in the 'love' category.  A unique take on the zombie apocalypse.  I'm going to keep this very short and succinct because at only 17 pages it is weirdly hard but not hard to spoil.  You know what's happening without the author making it blatantly obvious and this is my favorite thing about this. 

There are definite lessons in loneliness, accepting the fate of the world and within yourself and how hard we try to hold on to humanity.  While it's open to the possibility of making this a longer story based on how it ended, in a rare turn of events, I don't feel like anything more is necessary.
