The Twelve Days of (Christmas) the Mayan Apocalypse (9)

The world is ending soon. We don’t have much time. If you’re new to the Twelve Days of the Mayan Apocalypse, you might want to start here.

Day 9: A Matchmaker for all Time

It only took one day for the survivors to get restless inside the military base. Whether it was bravado or boredom, they all ventured outside the gate in search of something to help the camp.

You decided to play it safe, stay behind the fence with your friends from the jeep, and practice flying one of the three remaining helicopters. After a few hours you learned to get ten feet off the ground and hold steady. You didn’t dare go any higher until you saw a huge dust cloud a mile away.

You flew up one hundred feet saw your new friends surrounded by a dazed horde numbering in the hundreds. You wobbled and fluttered back down as fast as you could and crashed to the deck so hard it felt like the landing gear was going to fall off as soon as you got airborne again.

You sucked so badly at flying,  your zombie-killing friends refused to get in the helicopter, so you all hopped into a Hummer and sped out of the camp. By the time you reached the wreckage it was too late. The fifty caliber on top of the roof screamed out rounds into the horde, but the zombies had already cornered the band of wandering survivors and devoured them.

All you could do was turn back and get inside the fence before you were overrun.

When the horde finished feeding and moved along you were left with the realization that you needed to start repopulating the world with new survivors.

Choose 12 couples to begin the process. They need to be young and healthy enough to have lots of kids. They don’t have to like or even know each other yet.

Who will you choose?


You’ll need something to do in the post-civilized world, so order one of my books while Amazon’s servers are still up and UPS is still delivering! Your money won’t be worth anything on December 22nd, so spend it while you can.

If you’ve never read me try: The End of Marking Time, Sin & Vengeance, or Dinner At Deadman’s. Or get a signed book and help needy kids at

    Couple one: the former quarterback from the local highschool and a pretty blonde that just graduated as a nurse. He’s got a strong back to rebuild society if we can survive that lng , and she’s a nurse. We always need nurses. Couple 2: A computer geek guy and an airforce pilot. She was tops in her class and as zombies haven’t figured out how to fly, taking to the air is wise, and the guy is the next Bill Gates genius. Couple 3: CJ West a writer and a librarian. Oh sure she looks all mousy but wait till she lets her hair down – rarh! We will need to document the new society and everything that happened and the librarian will keep and preserve it for future generations. Couple 4: school teachers. The former jock that teaches math and computer classes, and the girl that decided to teach primary children. Someone has to teach the children. Couple 5: The good looking Australian chef dude, and a lady doctor. Someone has to cook, and the nurse can’t handle all the medical so we need a doctor. I’ll have to think about the rest.
