The serrated knife with the curved blade could slice any human but wouldn't stop even the least vicious corpse. Unless he had the time to cut away the decaying flesh piece by piece.

But he wasn't locked inside his arsenal at home and only had the few items he'd been able to carry when he fled the house. He should have grabbed his shotgun at least, but she'd been too close. She. The girl he loved and had hoped to settle down with. Get your act together! he told himself as the pounding intensified. No use thinking about her when he was facing his own death. Or undeath.
The door finally broke, allowing the infected brain eaters entry to the room. He'd be cornered soon. What kind of idiot locks himself in a room with only one door anyway? There was no time to point a finger at himself. He reached for the baseball bat and locked his eyes on the zombie leading the charge. The bat wouldn't help him win the battle, he knew. Resigned to die fighting, he swung the bat, making contact with the first creature's head.
Hope you enjoyed it! Now please check out the following:
