The Survivalistas- Book 2: Lyric- Epilogue

Lyric sat at the radio in the basement. She was so tired, but every time she tried to sleep she saw goosestepping zombies hailing The Rev. Ryan's mom had come home with them, but was spending a lot of time at Big Moose helping with the clean up and the new leaders. Most the men had been killed during the attack, which left the womenfolk to pick up the pieces.
The radio came to life startling her. “Hey Lyric this is Piper you on?”
Keying the mic she answer. “Yeah I'm here.”
“You sound like shit. Those other guys giving you a hard time still?”
“No we took care of them, well a zombie wave took care of them.”
“Sucks to be them.” Lyric shook her head, then relayed what she had learned to Piper. When she was done the radio was quiet so long she thought the other woman had gone. Finally Piper muttered. “That's some fucked up shit.”
“You have no idea.”
“Hey Lyric, I'll be right back one of my roomies wants me to see something.”
A few minutes passed and the radio crackled back to life. Panic swirled in Piper's voice. “Lyric how close are you to Lake Ontario?”
“Not close.”
“Good because the power plant just blew.”
Lyric searched her brain. “What power plant?”
“The nuclear one.”
