High School 1958 vs 2012: They Never Saw It Coming

As talked about in this post, I am going to write my own versions of that idiotic "High School 1958 vs 2008/2009/2010/2011/2012" thing that has been plaguing the internet. Please enjoy my interpretation of Scenario 5...



Mark gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.

1958: The aspirin does little to alleviate Mark's headache and it only gets worse. He goes to the school nurse and is diagnosed with a fever. Mark's mother is called to come pick him up from school. Before she can arrive, Mark's breathing becomes erratic and he has severe heart palpitations. Mark dies in the nurse's office a few minutes later. While the nurse and school principal discuss what to do, Mark reanimates as a zombie and rips out the throat of the nurse. Stunned into a lack of action, the principal watches helplessly as Mark rampages through the hallway, biting and devouring everyone he can. As students and staff die and are reanimated, the infection spreads out across the whole school. Teachers scream in terror as zombie children tear them limb from limb; jocks and nerds alike rip flesh from bones and slurp it down.

Unfortunately, the commotion goes unnoticed, as Mark and Johnny's fight drowns out the sounds of carnage. Pedro has seen this sort of thing before in his native country and tries to warn others. He screams warnings at the students to run to safety. Unfortunately, none of the other students were required to learn a foreign language, so they ignore it as just the raving of the weird foreign kid. Pedro flees the school, his fate unknown. When bloody, mutilated corpses begin pouring from the doors, students outside scream and try to flee. Unfortunately, the sheer number of zombies overpowers them. Mark, Johnny, and their spectators are surrounded in no time and are torn apart in seconds.

Jack sees the carnage and grabs his shotgun and extra ammo from the truck. He sees Billy running towards him, waving for help. Jack and Billy decide to team up. Jack uses Billy's skills to break the window in the vice principal's truck and retrieve the VP's shotgun. By this time, the zombies have flooded the school parking lot and are blocking their way out. Jack and Billy begin shooting zombies as fast as they can, knowing their time and ammo are limited.

Billy has a plan to lure the zombies into the school and blow it up with the explosives he keeps in his locker. Before this plan could be implemented, a zombie hiding under a teacher's car grabs his ankles and rips off half his calf. Billy screams and shoots the zombie, but the damage is done. In a matter of minutes, the other zombies have swarmed him. Jack runs from the scene, trying to get to cover, but he's surrounded. He realizes the situation is hopeless, so he prays and turns the shotgun on himself.

A few days later, Jeffrey emerges from the principal's office where he had been waiting to be paddled. When the commotion started, he locked the door and hid in the coat closet. He slowly and carefully makes his way out of the school and to his home, where he finds the remains of his family. He barricades himself in the house and lives the rest of his days scrounging the surrounding houses for food and supplies.

2012: The zombie menace has swept the globe, killing 99% of the earth's population. Nations are gone and what survivors there are live in armed camps, fighting amongst each other. Billions of zombies still roam the earth. Had the zombie outbreak happened in a time when people knew of zombies, we might have had a chance to save ourselves.
