The final episode of CYOA Season I has arrived. This episode is long, I’m not sorry, please stay till the end. But one of the photos shows the safe-houses roof off, that I am sorry for.
About this creation
The dialogue that corresponds to each picture can be found underneath.
DAWN OF THE FINAL DAY
*The sun rose, lighting the scene. Two undead forms waited for prey near a pond, little did they know two figures were hunting them.*
*The Awaken stood next to the lily pads, waiting.*
*A figure behind the rock threw an apple.*
*The Awaken noticed it, and went after it. It thinks it is living.*
*The figure concealed by the rock fired, the bullet hit the undead in the head and it fell to the ground.*
*The second figure peered around and shot the Shambler across the pond.*
Christian Collins- So… why the distraction?
Creem Kili- It was lingering next to the water, I couldn’t let that thing contaminate the pool.
Christian Collins- It’s just one, small pond, why does it matter so much?
Creem Kili- I’m thirsty.
*Creem Kili loosens a glass mug from his bandolier.*
*He then dipped it into the pond, where it was clearest.*
*And drank the mugs contents.*
Christian Collins- Why are we here? I thought we were going to a safe-house.
Creem Kili- We are, but we had to find that nature trail first. Go and fetch that pack, I’ll double-tap the bodies.
*They finished their tasks and were on their way.*
*The remaining survivors geared up, and were about to head out.*
*They were ready, perhaps too ready.*
Milk Damea- Say your goodbyes to the dearly departed, because we won’t be coming back here.
Allison- Wait, we need to wait for my agent.
Tom- I’m not sure who this agent is, but I do now we could use the extra gun.
Bob Mason- The more the merrier, not to mention safer.
Milk Damea- *sigh* Fine, we’ll wait for him.
*Tom and Cade sat next to the tree line, either to watch for intruders or to make sure the corpses don’t try anything.*
*Milk Damea and Allison were talking on a private comms channel, Bob Mason watched so he’d have something to do.*
//12 minutes and 1 second later//
Creem Kili- There’s the safe-house and my contact. Let’s go.
*Creem Kili and Christian Collins walked over to the group chatting in the broken shed.*
Cade- Stop right there.
*Creem was taken aback and shot out of instinct. He didn’t miss, the round slammed right into Cade’s chest.*
*Cade fell to the ground, moaning in agony.*
Tom- What the heck…
*Tom stood up, and saw the man that attacked Cade. He grabbed the grenade from his bandolier, and threw it. It was only a flashbang, nothing lethal.*
Creem Kili- Hit the dirt!
*Creem dove to the ground, Christian fell over backwards.*
*The grenade went off, a flash of bright light and a booming sound exited the device. Everyone’s ears were ringing.*
*Tom walked over to Creem. He controlled his anger, and decided not to kill him.*
*In contrast, Creem let loose his anger and shot Tom’s leg.*
*Tom collapsed in pain, he cursed at Creem.*
*Creem pulled the trigger of his revolver. It is unclear whether it is out of anger or not.*
*Bob Mason, Milk Damea, and Allison came to the action.*
Bob Mason- Drop your weapon scumbag!
Milk Damea- Mason, go over to Cade. He may still be alive.
*Bob Mason went to Cade, muttering under his breath.*
*Milk Damea raised his weapon, Creem held his tightly.*
*Creem took the bullet in his chest.*
*He fell to the ground, defeated.*
*Allison grabbed the barrel of Milk’s pistol.*
Allison- What the hell did you do that for?!?!
Milk Damea- I know him, he has killed many before.
Allison- I’m sure he had a good reason.
Milk Damea- No, he didn’t. It’s about time someone took action against him.
Christian Collins- How do you know?
Creem Kili- We’ve worked together before.
Christian Collins- Where, when?
*Creem coughed up blood.*
Creem Kili- Ask him, I can’t talk any longer. Too painful.
*Milk Damea sighed, he had no choice but to reveal a secret he has kept for over thirty years.*
- It was years ago, on the expedition to find that damned meteorite crash in Siberia…
…Back then I was a leader, my squad and I were in the mainland of Russia.
Normally a group of American soldiers in the Soviet Union would be a bad thing, but the Union was as scared as we were. That meteorite was dangerous, we all should know why by now.
We linked up with the Soviet team our first week in.
There were three of them, instead of five. The Commander explained to us that two died of the cold, I’m still not sure if he was lying.
We set out on our joint quest.
It took a few days to reach the meteorite crater. It was too dangerous to get close to the larger part, but we got a lucky break. A shard had broken off in the impact and settled in, half a kilometer from the main thing.
We started our work immediately. As per the US-Soviet agreement, one shadow trooper and one Soviet soldier would be assigned the same task.
Two would use pickaxes to extract samples from the shard.
The Soviet commander told his other soldier, and mine, to put up barbed wire. We didn’t want anyone to venture too close to the main crater.
I ordered two of my men to dig up other sample types. One would get the smaller shards, while the other would pick up a few extracts of that strange, green moss.
The work went smoothly for most of the following days.
The Commander and I discussed the miss-trust our troops might have. He told me that the one with the RPG launcher had a bad trigger finger.
I exchanged information about one of my own. He never liked the Russians, he callously referred to them as ‘Commy Bastards’. He is Creem Kili, a relative of mine.
Our work ended on the fourth day, we evenly distributed the samples and were saying our good-byes, the two teams would part from there.
But Creem Kili’s miss-trust reached the breaking point. He pulled out his sidearm…
…and shot every…single…
My troops were a bit shocked at this turn of events, but Creem Kili reassured them by telling a lie.
Creem Kili- They were starting to become infected, burn the bodies immediately.
Milk Damea- Our organization had no choice but to lie to the Soviets. They told them ‘since your soldiers were not wearing proper haz-mat suits we had no choice but to exterminate them, your cooperation is appreciated’. War was the last thing both countries wanted, so we got lucky again.
Christian Collins- So what happened next?
Milk Damea- I was demoted, the same thing didn’t happen to Creem, and the organization started to perform their experiments.
Christian Collins- So, why did you leave?
Milk Damea- Their experiments became more dangerous, and the results weren’t natural, or moral. I was lucky a third time, and escaped before things went to hell there.
*Bob Mason returned with grim news.*
Bob Mason- Cade’s dead, and from the looks of things Tom is too. What about him?
*Bob pointed to Creem Kili.*
*Allison went to Creem Kili’s side, the expression she gave signaled that he wouldn’t make it.*
Milk Damea- Good riddance, he was a terrible person, and a worse brother.
*Christian Collins mouthed a question, Milk did not answer.*
*Allison got up, and stared at Milk Damea.*
Allison- What now?
*Bob Mason and Christian Collins stared at Milk Damea.*
Milk Damea- If there is any cure for this infection there is only one place we can find it. We have to search... the facility.

Oh , Eric, do the survivors of season 1 get spots in season 2?
This is turning out to be a very good series, despite my initial response to it. Well done. I didn't even notice that there was no roof until you told me (lol). Congrats, and looking forward to the next series. If you need an idea for a character, post a reply to this.
Wow, good series. I would've loved to go through with a MOC series. I have so many going but not officially ended. I might just pick up on some of them... Great job on completing the entire series. I love the fact tat you let me live. I assume it was kind of unfair to the zombies. ; P 5/5! ~Stay green
That was a pretty good ending, and some parts caught me off my guard (if I was right about one thing, I knew Creem would shoot first). I'm anxiously waiting for second season, and I know I'll be there!
