Paranormal Wastelands is proud to welcome Annie Walls author of The Famished Trilogy.
DF: What do you want?
Greta: We don’t want any.
Annie: I was taking a stroll around the neighborhood when I noticed a retched smell coming from your mansion. *Annie wrinkles nose as a bang and groan sounds from the zombie hidden in the mansion basement.* What’s that noise?
DF: Never mind that. What’s that? In your hand? *DF points to Annie’s hand.*
Annie: Well, I have a zombie. You see? *Annie pulls the chain in her hand, and a compliant zombie stumbles into the mansion foyer.*
*Greta and DF gasp*
Greta whispers to DF: You called the zombie whisperer!
*DF elbows Greta to be quiet.*
DF: How do you get him to do that? *DF gestures to the zombie, who is standing still, watching them eerily.*
*Annie appraises Greta and DF with raised eyebrows, and smiles.*
Annie: Well, I feed him!
Greta: You feed him? What?
Annie: Zombie food. What else would I feed him? *More banging comes from the basement as DF and Greta become more anxious.*
DF: Where can we get some of this zombie food? Hypothetically speaking.
Annie: *Annie shrugs* Where ever you can find some brains.
Greta: Well, how do you keep him so clean? *Everyone looks at the zombie, noting the laundered state.*
Annie: Spray him down with the hose, soap him up, and spray him down again to rinse him off, like a shower. Need to feed him first though. A full zombie is a happy zombie. *Moans and groans become louder and more persistent. DF and Greta shoot each other worried glances*
Annie: Does that noise have anything to do with the smell?
Greta: It’s a zombie!
DF: Yes, and we need to train him. I think you can help us. You know, being a zombie whisperer and all.
Annie: Zombie whisperer?
*Annie shakes with uncontrolled laughter*
Greta: What’s so funny?
*DF scowls at Annie*
Annie: Oh, well, I’m not a zombie whisperer.
DF: You’re not?
Greta: But that zombie is trained! You know what to feed him.
DF: And bathe him...
Greta: And walk him.
DF: He’s not trying to eat us!
*Annie pulls chain again.*
Annie: All that stuff seems obvious, don’t you think?
DF: You should help us train our zombie. *More banging from basement.*
Annie: I would, if I ever trained a zombie, but I haven’t.
Greta: What about your zombie? *Greta points to zombie*
Annie: He’s not my zombie. I just found him on my walk. Pretty cool, huh?
*DF and Greta blink*
DF: Then what are you doing here?!?!
Annie: If you would have let me explain in the first place... from the smell of your mansion, I thought he lived here. You guys seem a little desperate... couldn’t resist teasing you.
DF: What a waste of my time!
Greta: So, where is the real zombie whisperer?
Annie: Just a guess, but maybe this zombie had the whisperer for breakfast. Maybe zombie’s don’t want to be trained.
*Everyone looks at the zombie, who now has a smile on his face.*a Rafflecopter giveaway
