Name: Shari Shemesh
Nothing ever happens in small towns, at least that's what Shari always thought. You wake up, brush your teeth and hope the coffee is strong. You get in a car so you can drive to a job that you don't ever remember caring for and begin your day like many others before it. Except for this day.. the day of the outbreak..the day everything changed forever.
Before the outbreak Shari worked in a lab as a head psychologist in a small grade pharmaceutical manufacturing company. She started on the manufacturing line straight from high school, was always punctual and met her specs. Eventually, she climbed through the internal departments like so many before her. Continued her education and moved to a secured Lab on the premises, where her only job was to do psychological studies for trial pharmaceuticals before market. At the time of the outbreak she was enrolled as a year one student in general medicine.
Shari is the oldest of two girls, the mother was a hotbed of confusion, addiction, and insecurities. The girls were from different fathers, Fox father never having been identified, and Shari's father leaving when he learned of Fox. The mother left before Fox had graduated high school, which left Shari to care for Fox. Long story short, its always been just the two of them. Fox had always been the hot one, a stubborn wild child if you will, but very intelligent, even if she did have her own idea on what is "right or wrong". While Shari on the other hand was practical, a provider. The quiet one. The girls being close in age, grew up tight. They didn't have much but they had each other. In their small town it was expected that if you seen one of them, then the other wasn't to far behind. Inseparable since Fox was born, Shari now feels lost without her sister and is determined to find her. Fox is all Shari has ever had, all that is real to her from the old world she left behind, and especially now in this new existence of survival. Finding Fox is the only hope left in a dark and dismal new world.
Shari's outbreak story isn't anything spectacular . It started just like any other day, wake up, brush teeth, let the dog out, make coffee.. you get the drill... MUNDANE, until she went to work. That particular day as she pulled into the secured gated parking garage the first thing she noticed most is that people were leaving, some seemed fine, while others looked under the weather and sick. She was immediately concerned, working in a drug manufacturing company you know the drills and
Day Of Outbreak:
From that day on Shari spent her time, trekking, hiking while looking for shelter, food, water, dry clothes, and gas. Searching for her sister along the way. The first obstacle Shari found, gas was becoming very hard to find, many vehicles left behind due to dried up gas tanks. Dead skeletons which were beginning to litter the major interstates. At first it was relatively easy for Shari to hitch a ride when needed with other survivors going her way. That quickly changed, people started becoming leery and skittish, some would become hostile and paranoid without reason. Most wouldn't make it very far before an incident with rioters or run in with an infected. Food became just as scarce as gas. Major water sources littered with dead or infected bodies made it undrinkable. At this point it became hard to tell which groups hunger clawed at their insides the most? The infected.... or the survivors?? No one is safe.
