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.
