"Andy, we've got to go!" I yelled at my raven haired fiance, his eyes were wet with tears. Today was supposed to be our wedding day, but fate had cancelled that awhile ago.
"I can't!" He cried out. He was on the floor of the abandoned warehouse. We needed to find more shelter. Soon.
'Hand in mine into your icy blues, and then I'd say to you we could take to the highway. With this trunk of ammunition too.."
"Ashley, let's just stay here. The radios work. Jinxx and Sammi Doll are eight hours out of Contamination Zone, Jake and Ella are safe until it reaches Europe-"
"CC?" I asked, fearing the answer.
"He's become one." Andy choked out, barely a whisper. We needed to save the world, but I have to keep Andy safe.
'I'd end my days with you in a hail of bullets'ญญญญญญ
"Andy, we gotta help the kids!" I said, picking up the radio.
He sighed, "You're right."
Pressing down the button to speak, I looked at Andy, his once bright eyes were now filled with fear.
"This is Deviant, and I'm here with Prophet, don't give up hope; we'll get through this as an army of the living."
'I'm trying, I'm trying to let you know just how much you mean to me, and. And after all the things we put each other through.'
"Get the food, Andy. I've got the guns. We're leaving."
'I would drive on to the end with you, a liquor store or two keeps the gas tank full, and I feel like there's nothing left to do but prove myself to you, and we'll keep it running.'
"I love you." He said in a monotone, pulling his strong facade back on.
Within two hours we'd left and had packed the necessities, food, water, guns, water, guns, ammunition, guns, you get the point.
'But this time, I mean it. I'll let you know just how much you mean to me."
Once dark had fallen, we'd made it about a fourth of a way into the Contamination Zone. Andy started a fire. We slept in the back of the car, blankets on top of us, clinging onto one another as we heard noises outside. Thank God for reinforced windows.
'As snow falls, on desert sky, until the end of everything. I'm trying."
We barely slept at all.
"Calling Deviant." Jinxx's voice buzzed through the radio.
"It's spreading." Andy gasped as he stomped out the fire, the chains on his leather boots jingling as he did so. Andy and I were dressed very similar. Leather jackets, black shirts, black skinny jeans, and leather boots. My black hair was tied at the base of my neck in a ponytail. His was greased back. We were wearing our signature war paint. We always symbolized our army.
'I'm trying to let you know just how much you mean to me. As days fade and nights grow, and we go cold.'
It had been two days of traveling by the time we had encountered our first zombie.
Cold and heartless, I shot it. Big mistake. More ran toward us. I pulled Andy on top of the black SUV with me. He had a gun, as did I.
"Let's do this, love." Was all he said.
Standing back to back we shot faces, chests, and necks. Self reminder: Next abandoned store, more ammo. I could tell this violence hurt Andy, he was truly a shell of himself. He didn't like having to kill, I heard his cries at night.
"Prophet? Deviant?" Someone asked as we polished off the last of the contaminated humans.
A flash of a yellow mask and red hair caught my eye. Party Poison. A black haired man stepped out behind him. Fun Ghoul.
Quickly, we climbed down to meet the Killjoys. We helped them overthrow BLI, or Better Living Industries before the insane CEO let IT spread. They were the outcasted Killjoys. Very much like us, the Outcasts, the Fallen Angels.
'Until the end, until this pool of blood, until this. I mean this, I mean this, until the end of'
As we greeted Frank and Gerard, we found out they had a proposition.
"So for protection reasons, do you mind if we join you all? We've got food. ammo, and our transportation broke down a mile back."
Looking at Andy, he shook his head yes.
"I guess so, it gets lonely, I love Andy, but company is nice.." I trailed off.
"You two together?"
"So are we." Frank spoke up.
Time lapse: Three days
Three days and a hundred dead contaminated people later, we received news from Jinxx.
"It's Mystic," A voice came from the radio, "We've found a trace of a group of bloodsuckers as well."
Andy's blue eyes grew wide, Gerard gasped, and Frank dug his head into Gerard's shoulder. I hugged Andy close.
"Thanks, Mystic. We've teamed up with Party Poison and Fun Ghoul. We should meet you at the edge in a few days."
Andy and I stayed up that night. He was in my lap, and I was hugging onto him for dear life.
"I'd die for you." I whispered into his ear.
"If you go, I'm going too."
"Andy, I'd live on in you."
"I couldn't live without you."
"No. Promise me."
"I can't." His eyes turned watery.
"Shh." I cooed, "Sleep."
It was nearing December, and snow was falling. For a minute, the world seemed normal, innocent even. It was like a small child.
'I'm trying, I'm trying to let you know just how much you mean as days fade, and nights grow and we go cold.'
Soon I fell into a sleep where I dreamed that Andy had been taken. The Killjoys had done it. I knew they wanted him. No one or anything would touch him.
Note to self: Trust no one but Andy.
Andy's sleeping form clutched at my shirt and I held him close.
'But this time we'll show them all.'
I fell back asleep and dreamed of a happier time, back in 2009. It was when Andy and I went on out on our first date.
It was nothing really, just dinner and a movie. We were both excited. Then in was 2010, a big year for us. We gained so many fans and released our first record.
Next it was 2011. The year I proposed. I was sweating and nervous as fuck.
"Ashley, what's wrong?" Andy giggled as I pulled out his chair.
We did the famous Lady and the Tramp spaghetti kiss, and then I got up and kneeled infront of him.
"Andrew Dennis Biersack, these two years have been amazing. You've taught me how to love and have true happiness. You've taught me how to live." He gasped as i pulled out the ring box. I popped it open, revealing a silver ring with sfive black jewels and a diamond in the middle. A tear slid down his cheek. "Andy, will you give me the honor of marrying me? To be mine forever?"
"Yes," He whispered. I slid the ring on his finger. He stood and I got off of my knees to kiss him delicately.
It was the last happy memory I had.
'How much we mean, as snow falls on desert sky until the end of every'
We were on the move. Frank and Gerard were still with us, and they were getting annoying since Andy had started to speak with them. I walked away from the fire they had built at our temporary resting area. I leaned against the black SUV.
"Deviant!" A girl's voice- Sammi Doll's buzzed through the speaker on my transistor. "Mystic and I found a living bloodsucker. If a Contaminite gets bitten, it doesn't stay a hazardous, staggering used-to-be human. Deviant, it becomes a vampire, regaining it's once youthful appearance. This might be a cure, but I heavily doubt it."
I knew it wouldn't be a cure for everyone, even if it was there would be know living to feed up on. Though I couldn't give up hope.
"Andy!" I called, "Did you hear that?"
"Yes," He moved into my arms, kissing me softly.
"If It happened...Would you..?" I trailed off.
"No. I wouldn't, I couldn't."
"Oh," I was obviously hurt, I mean Andy just turned down his other lifeline. "I guess I'd have to be selfish and go against your wishes. Life without you is like life without the stars or the moon. I have nothing to gaze at, nothing would make me curious. Nothing would have meaning. I need you to breathe." I pecked his lips.
"I need you too." His hand slipped south...
"Oh." I said, pushing him down.
"I don't want anything but you inside of me, baby."
I unbuttoned my jeans and let them fall to my ankles, and I did the same with Andy's.
I stuck my fingers in front of his mouth, and him being no innocent virgin knew what to do. He sucked, lubing them up. I positioned him in front of me. Looks like Party Poison and Fun Ghoul would get a show.
I slipped the first one in, and he hissed, almost a whimper. A second finger went in, and I started moving it around a bit before I inserted the third and final finger.
Removing the fingers, I lined our hips up, and kissed his shoulder. I inched in, slowly. I let him get adjusted to my full length before I started to move again.
I thrusted once, going half way out, and he started moaning. I pulled out to the tip. This time I went harder, fucking, no not fucking, but making love, to the only love I've had.
I was almost there, hearing him scream out my name nearly sent me over the edge, but I held on.
"Ashley! Me too!" He moaned, whimpering the last part.
I went slower, pumping him along with my thrusts. Soon, we reached our highs, screaming out each other's name. Exhausted, I kissed him and let him sleep while I talked to Jinxx.
"Mystic, we're getting our asses in gear. We've come across nothing. Where exactly are we running?"
"We're running for hope, for love. No place in general, Deviant. The Mourner is sending a boat, you guys need to hurry. Where are you?"
"In what used to be Arizona."
'No stopping anymore. The boat should be here in three days. Get your asses to Florida. Now."
"They can come too."
'All we are, all we are is bullets. I mean this'
I'd warmed up to Party Poison. He was truly nice, and I'd made him promise me something.
"Ashley! I couldn't do that!"
"Shh! They'll hear. You have too. If anything happens to Andy, kill me too."
"No buts, please."
"Fine." He sighed, defeated.
Little did I know, Andy had made the same promise to Frank.
'All we are, all we are is bullets I mean this. All we are, all we are is bullets I mean this. All we are, all we are is bullets I mean this. As lead rains will pass us on through."
Frank and Gerard were sleeping, as it was our turn to drive.
"Ashley will we be okay?"
I didn't want to lie.
'Through our phantoms forever, forever like scarecrows that feed this flame. We're burning forever and ever.'
Deciding on a suitable answer, I mumbled, "I don't know, but I'll keep you safe."
'Know how much I want to show you you're the only one like a bed of roses, there's a dozen reasons in this gun.'
Andy was silent, so I spoke again.
"Andy, you're my world, my true love. You were once my lead singer. My heart sings for you. I can't go on without you. I love you." It had to be said.
'As we're falling down in this pool of blood, and as we're touching.'
"I love you too." No emotion. He was staring out at the bleak scenery through his window.
The car ride was silent as we drove from Tennessee to Georgia, momentarily passing through Alabama.
Andy picked up the radio, "This is Prophet, we're almost there."
Jinxx signaled back, saying "Fantastic." in a creepy manner. I'm growing suspicious of this whole thing.
'And as we're falling down, and in this pool of blood, and as we're touching hands, and as we're falling down. And in this pool of blood, and as we're falling down. I'll see your eyes, and in this pool of blood, I'll meet your eyes.'
"Andy," I said, quick and urgent. Fear barely in my voice.
"Wake Party Poison and Fun Ghoul. We're going to need some help."
He did as he was told, but before he could wake them, I added another part, "I love you Andy. No matter what. Let's go kick some zombie ass."
'I mean this forever.'
