A touring coach was the means to escape death for twenty-five people in the Scottish Highlands. They survived the dash to safety inside a tunnel, but while preparing to live in a post-apocalyptic world discovered that they had a serial killer in their midst.
The murderer escaped to live in the wilderness, but within a year, she gave birth to Sylvia; ‘from the forest’.
*Author’s note: This is presently an experimental spin-off from my Light at The End trilogy, which was itself my first foray into a post-apocalyptic scenario. At the time of writing, 29 August 2020, the third story in the trilogy is yet to be published but will be by end November 2020.
Like the other stories, there are no zombies in ‘Sylvia’–however, death only requires a step in the wrong direction.
