A BOY STAGGERS INTO THE GYM
He's bleeding. Terrified. Moaning. He falls and I see that a chunk has been cutbitten-out of the back of his neck. Blood spurts from the wound. As we gape, more kids spill into the gym. All screaming. Some bleeding Everyone in shock.
When news reports start appearing of a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B's racist father thinks it's a joke -- but even if it isn't, he says, it's okay to lose a few Irish.
B doesn't fully buy into Dad's racism, but figures it's easier to go along with it than to risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, blacks, or immigrants. And when dodging his fists doesn't work, B doesn't hesitate to take the piss out of kids at school with a few slaps or cruel remarks.
That is, until zombies attack. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors of high school, making allegiances with anyone with enough gall to fight off their pursuers.
