Distance VI, By Gareth Wood

This is the last installment in Gareth Wood's  series of very short stories. Wood used the Author Flash format to develop a story in six 55-word increments that can also stand alone as individual episodes.

"I'm still here..."

There was no-one to hear, but her fever was gone. Weak as a kitten, stinking of sweat and sickness. The scratch was tender, red, but healing.
One more day. One day to rest, sleep, then on the road again. More highways to walk, to put distance between herself and the dead.

Gareth Wood is the author of the zombie novels:

Age of the Dead

Wood posts regularly on his Facebook page. Keep up with his latest releases and learn more of the backstory to his books.

Intriguingly, Gareth Wood is one of the few zombie authors who was published in Spain before he was ever published in English. This fact is made more interesting because Wood is a resident of CANADA, and doesn't speak a word of Spanish.
