Fifth Grade First Place: “Where Am I?” by Sarah Hough

One cold early morning my parents picked me up from school and said were going on a vacation, and I knew it wasn’t a good vacation because my mom picked out the house. My mom loves old stuff, and the house is like 100 years old, so my mom’s completely in love with it. Once we got there my dad had a big fit because there was dust everywhere and my dad has allergies. While my mom and dad were arguing I went to look around. There were paintings of people in really fancy outfits. They looked like they were from the 1700’s or something. Suddenly, I heard a loud crash and turned around as fast as I could. “AAAAhhhh!” I screamed as loud as I could. My parents got there in a heart-beat. They were calling my name repeatedly. I tried to speak, but I couldn’t. They searched and searched, and I was wondering why they can’t see me. I looked around me and wondered where I was. Where am I? I thought. I looked down to see if I could at least see myself, I couldn’t. For hours my parents looked for me, and no one ever found me and neither did I.

Grand County Library District Winners of the 2012 Zombie Tales Contest- 6th- 8th Grades

(7 Stories)

First Place 8th Grade: “Le Zombie” by Sydney Almgren (Kremmling Library)

“Right zis way, and do not touch zee bones, please.” The French guide’s nauseating sweet voice droned on, cautioning my class to not touch the ancient, withered bones. Everyone thought the field trip to the French catacombs would be totally sick. Well, sick, yeah, but not in the cool way. The guide kept on with her dry, useless facts. No one was listening, but despite the guide’s warnings, everyone prodded the bones. It felt like we were awakening the dead.

“Hey, Jack, lets ditch this group and do our own exploring, hmm?” said my friend, Phil, with a sharp jab in the shoulder.

“Shut up dude, we haven’t been walking that long.” I told him over my shoulder.

“That wasn’t me, man.” Phil replied, with a shudder in voice. That wasn’t like him; he was the lineman on the football team. I hurriedly glanced around the cramped crypt. Nothing looked out of place.

“Maybe we should leave.” I suggested. But the low moan came again, and again I surveyed the crypt. Nothing.

“Yeah, let’s go right now.” Phil said, turning on his heel to leave. But there, standing in the archway, an emaciated, pale gray corpse obstructed our way. I instinctively took a step back. What is it? I thought. The eyes were milky and filmed over, as though no thought has crossed its mind in ages. Clumps of hair were barely hung on to the scalp. It stretched a hand towards me, the nails yellowed and cracked. The monster took in a raspy breath through its mouth and began to shamble toward Philip and me. We backed into the opposite wall of the crypt. We were trapped. Panicked, Phil lashed out at the monster. He struck him square on the arm, and to our surprise, whacked it off. The zombie let out a high pitched squeal. Hands began to pop out of the rotten linens, and more zombies came from the walls, teeth barred. Phil ducked and ran between his legs, and I followed. Foul, fetid fingers grazed us and drew blood. We toppled on top of one another, but we were out of the crypt. Sprinting, taking left and rights, we miraculously made it to the class.

“Zombies! Right behind us! We need to run!” I shrieked.

The class erupted into laughter, even the French tour guide. Phil and I ran to the door. But it was too late. Before Phil and I could make it to the exit, we heard the fatal screams of pure terror behind us. It was too late. We couldn’t do anything now. Fin

First Place Seventh Grade: “Thriller” by Sydney Ritschard (Kremmling Library)

Taylor couldn’t wait! Tomorrow was Halloween and she was going to go trick or treating. She was especially excited because this year Courtney, Caitlin, and she were going to go to the town cemetery. Only the bravest trick or treaters go there. Legend has it if you make it through the spooky grave, you would find a whole stash of candy, and it would be all yours! Courtney, Caitlin, and Taylor would meet at seven thirty to the entrance of the cemetery. Taylor went to bed with dreams full of candy.

It was seven fifteen Halloween day and Taylor was at the entrance to the cemetery, ready and raring to go. Courtney and Caitlin showed up ten minutes later. They all held hands and entered the cemetery. The cemetery was so foggy you couldn’t see, and scary noises were coming from everywhere. The flashlight they had was not much help. Taylor held out her hand to see where she was going, everything she touched was slimy and full of bugs. Caitlin was the first one to shriek when a mouse, or what they thought was a mouse, ran over her foot. She got too scared and ran back.

It was just Courtney and Taylor left, when all of a sudden zombies rose up from the graves walking toward them. They both screamed but couldn’t move because they were surrounded. Their sickly green skin was peeling off. They were all drooling and moaning, probably thinking about brains. Hair was in random tufts on their head. Their tattered clothes that looked like rags hung loosely on their bodies. The only part of their body that looked alive strangely was their eyes. Taylor could feel them all looking at her and Courtney, even though she had her eyes closed and didn’t want to look at them. When Taylor was sure the zombies were going to grab them and eat them, out of nowhere someone or something started playing Thriller by Michael Jackson. The zombies slowly started doing the dance. Their arms, legs, hands, and feet were falling off from moving crazily. It seemed like they were trying to sing, but it just came out in moans. Taylor and Courtney didn’t know whether to laugh because how ridiculous it looked, puke because how gross everything was, or scream because how scary. The song ended and the zombies slowly retreated back into the ground. One of them even waved at Taylor with his hand he still had. Taylor and Courtney laughed, stepped carefully though the graves to the entrance and back to Caitlin. They were so busy laughing about what happened, they completely forgot about the candy. They spent the rest of their night trick or treating and telling people their story, but not one single person believed them.

Second Place Seventh Grade: “Red Call” by Emmaline Hafford (Fraser Valley Library)

Tina and Jack were good friends working at KOLNO inc.. A giant skyscraper in downtown Chicago, IL. They both worked on story 8 of the building, the building had 100 stories. It was a normal day at the office, when it was announced that the desk clerk was killed 10 minutes ago. Tina and Jack went to the scene in the lobby, “Oh my gosh,” Tina cried, they looked on, dumbfounded by what they saw, the desk clerk lay there on the ground, his brains scooped out, eyes open, tongue hanging out. Was he still alive? Tina checked his pulse, Dead. The cops had not come yet. Security was there, luckily. Then they saw it, the zombies, hundreads of them, surrounding the building, breaking the glass, coming in, “Run!” Jack said, “This way,” Jack screamed, ” up the stairs, hurry!” They ran up the stairs, passed the door labeled 10 for story 10…11…12…13…14…15. They finally reached story 20. Everyone was at their office, busy with work. “What if the zombies know how to use the elevator?” Tina whispered. “I don’t think they can.” Jack replied. Just then the elevator opened, *ding* it sounded. 8 zombies piled out. They ran, everyone in their office screamed, Tina grabbed the fire extinguisher, “Zombies don’t like this” she said. The first zombie coming their way was a zombie man with his leg all bone and bloody, his skin was hanging off his face, and he was holding a half full coffee. Tina sprayed the fire extinguisher, he covered his face as if in pain, meanwhile the police drove down to the scene, they managed to ,kill all of the zombies by burning them, (the only way to kill a zombie.)

Later that day Janice Pickens, news lady, was standing by a large flower bed about to go on air when she saw it, a bloody arm crawling toward her, it was only an arm, Janice screamed, “give me that lighter,” she yelled at Henry, the cameraman, he handed her a lighter, she took it and burned the arm, it started to flex, it caught on fire, after a few moments it turned to ash, *Whew* Janice sighed, “That was a close one.” Henry said “5,4,3,2,1, air.” Janice was broadcasting about the events of this tragic day. They finished up and drove away in the news van, Janice thought she saw a shadow in the ally way. From that day on everyone carried a light, or at least some source of fire, just in case, 2,000 people were killed that day. Including Tina and Jack.

Third Place Seventh Grade: “The Zombie Virus” by Ivan Teter (Fraser Valley Library)

Mike and Jerry were hanging out in the park, when they heard an explosion come from Skytropolis. They turned around and watched as the artificial sky island that held the nuclear reactor explode and the coolant tower spray coolant as it fell into the Earth’s trash mounds and crumble.

Mike and Jerry looked at each other and said simultaneously, “Uh oh.” They crossed the bridge quickly to the office sky island to see dead bodies standing up and wandering around.

“Let’s do this like in that old game Left 4 Dead and take them out!” said Jerry, hiding his fear. They ran across the bridge and saw a demolition truck parked in front of an old hotel.

They looked at each other and gleefully yelled, “DYNAMITE!” They rushed to the truck and filled their pockets. The zombies noticed them and they attacked. Mike lit and threw a stick of dynamite and ran. They bolted for the other end of the sky island with the surviving zombies sprinting closely behind. The bridge was out. They saw and turned to the nearest skyscraper. Carefully, they placed the dynamite on the weak points, and blew the skyscraper over. The skyscraper fell and made a makeshift bridge. They clambered on and ran to the sky island that held the megamall.

They saw a Construction Depot by the JC Nickels and grabbed a long wooden plank, as the bridge was out again. They carefully crossed over to the sky island that held the town hall and the anti-gravity center that controlled the gravity and floatation of Skytropolis. A horde jumped the gap when suddenly, the gravity level changed. A zombie was at the gravity and flotation controls, smashing his pale hand on the buttons at random.

Mike yelped, “Book it to the town hall and find a weapon in a dead security man’s and. I’ll use the Hackpad I invented from the iPad 10 to try to dull the control’s effect from the roof. We need to hurry before he smashes his pale, bony hand into the floatation controls and we plummet back to Earth, bury ourselves into the trash mounds, and explode because the coolant isn’t connected to the reactor!”

Jerry moonwalked to the town hall, having a little too much fun in the low gravity. He saw a dead security guard by the scanner that checks for metal. He grabbed the gun from his hand right before he woke up. He pulled the trigger, and the bullet blew a hole through his head. He turned, ran, and jumped on the roof Mike was on.

Mike poked his Hackpad one more time and said, “Thank goodness. I was actually able to deactivate the WHOLE control panel. You shoot the zombie at the desk and I’ll drop the reactor from her.”

Jerry jumped down and shot the zombie through the big, plexi-glass window. CRACK! He turned around to see the nuclear reactor fall to Earth and explode when it hit the ground.

First Place Sixth Grade: “The Diseased Pill” by Silas Almgren (Kremmling Library)

The pill was supposed to help, to cure and prevent any and all diseases, it was just an experiment gone terribly wrong. Now I’ll tell you the story of the way my friend Phil and I survived the closest thing you could get to an apocalypse.

It was the beginning 2020 and they still didn’t have a cure for cancer, they thought they weren’t making enough progress in medicine. Their decision was to create the C35 Pill, it was supposed to cure and prevent any disease. The pill only took eleven months to complete and when they finally released it to the public it was a big hit. But there was one thing the creators weren’t telling the public or the government they did a secret test on someone. When the person took the pill their eyes turned red, their teeth became pointed, here flesh started to decay, and there fighting skills increased, and their voice became deep and scratchy. Pretty much the pills didn’t cure diseases, it caused one. The creators plan was to use the people who took the pill and make an army for their own selfish uses. The pill was released to the public on the last day of 2020. We live in the mountains so it took an extra month to reach us.

We just got back in school and we were taking a test in algebra when somebody came in bearing the incredible new. It was such a glorious day they let us out of school early. When I got home my mom heard an alarming noise, so I grabbed a baseball bat and ran down stairs. What I saw shocked me, my mom had turned into one of the beasts. Then she lunged at me but I dodged the attack, but she kept coming. When I finally got up the courage I dealt a deliberate blow to her jaw. I bolted out onto the street my mind automatically went to finding my friend Phil.

I arrived in Phil’s room five minutes later, what I saw was a miracle Phil was okay. Instantly I shouted, “We have to get out of town! NOW!” We started running down the main highway when we saw a pack of the beasts feeding on a policeman. We made a hesitation then made a quick decision and took a detour to the school. Then when we arrived at the school we ran into the gym. We were crept out by the flickering lights but we made it to the back room, where we found compound target bows. We picked them up and a couple of quivers. When we got back out we saw one of the zombies creeping across the gym floor. I had another stupid idea that I made in a split second, I shot one of the lights. As it came down to the ground it had started a fire, but what surprised me most the fire automatically engulfed the zombie. That was it we needed to start an extremely large fire. “The gas station!” shouted Phil excitedly, “I have some matches.” That’s exactly what we did; we sprinted the short distance to the gas station, where we took out two zombies with bows. Then we took gas caps of the tanks and lit some matches.

We were running fast with the flames and the beasts right on our tails, but we were too fast. Minutes later we were up on the mountains watching our town dying into flames. “What happens now?” Phil said. “I don’t know, I don’t know.” The End

Second Place Sixth Grade: “The Devastation” (Kremmling Library)

I was trudging through the jungles of South Africa with my buds, Marcos and Jimmy. Then, all of a sudden, I hear a loud roaring.

“Probably a jet, get down,” I whispered.

Everybody got down and we realized it wasn’t a jet. I told Marcos, “Go up and destroy that ship!” I had to yell over the roaring so he could hear me. Marcos is kinda like the “Hulk”. That is why his codename is Marcos “The Hulk”. He just jumped up to that ship and ripped it apart. As the ship was going down, Marcos jumped down.

“Let’s go look for survivors,” I told Marcos and the rest of the men. There were survivors, but they weren’t alive.

“What is that?” Jimmy asked me as the first zombie crawled out of the ship.

“Does it matter?!!” Marcos screamed as he ripped its head off.

“I guess not,” I told him as I patted him on the back.

“Whatever it was,” he said, “it wasn’t human.”

“Remember,” I told him, “we’re at war with aliens.”

“But there was no blood,” he pointed out.

“Weird,” the field doctor said. “This heart looks like it hasn’t been pumping for thousands of years.”

“How can you tell?” I asked.

“The heart isn’t there,” and he showed me where the heart used to be.

“Ignite the ship so no more can come out,” I commanded

“Yes sir!” Jimmy said as he ran up with gasoline and a match.

Soon the ship was completely ignited.

“Good work, lieutenant!” I yelled over the roaring flames.

“Thank you, sir,” Jimmy replied

Then we heard a loud plane and Torrin comes parachuting down shooting zombies the whole way down.

“That was AWESOME!” I told Torrin when he got down.

“Thank you, sir,” he replied while reloading his guns.

Then, along came Jonathan with his parachute upside down. He pulled the cords and fell upside down.

“OW!” he screamed as he hit his head on a rock.

“Are you alright?” I asked him as he was getting up.

“I’m fine, sir” he moaned.

“I keep on telling you to stop jumping out upside down!” I replied.

“I keep on forgetting, sir, I’m sorry,” he said.

“You’re fine,” I told him as he dusted off his pants.

The next day Jonathan came up to me and gave me a piece of paper. I studied it for a while and found out that we were being invaded by zombie aliens called, “The Infection” and that they had already taken over most of the world, including Asia and Europe. When I read that they had taken over Colorado, I immediately wondered if they had taken over my hometown, Kremmling, Colorado. I still read on. I e-mailed everybody in the Kremmling area.

Three months had passed and I still had gotten no response.

“The Devastation” (Continued….Kremmling Library)

“We’re going,” I grumbled angrily.

“Where are we going, sir?” asked Jimmy and Torrin at the same time.

“Home,” I replied.

We arrived at the docks four days later to board the U.S.S Sinker, one of the greatest Battleships of all time. “This is amazing!” Jonathan said as he boarded the massive ship.

When we got to the Colorado River, since the Colorado begins in Grand County, we boarded a lifeboat and paddled down the river.

We arrived a hundred miles away from Kremmling, where two trucks were to meet us.

“Hop in!” the driver yelled, “Kremmling, here we come!”

Once we got there, the town was completely destroyed.

“Let’s go look for survivors,” I said, “park the car.”

“On it,” the driver said.

We walked the last two miles down to Kremmling. The men were exhausted. Then I had an idea.

“Let’s go see what’s left of the Kum and Go!”

That gave the men the encouragement that they needed. By the time got to the Kum and Go. We found out it was the only building left. We all saw the same things in the window, alien zombies.


All I could here was screaming and gunshots.

“Wait for me!” I yelled.

I could see everybody lining up for fountain drinks while I was on look out.

“Each squad will take one neighborhood,” I assigned everyone with their own neighborhoods that had their house.

I was moving with my squad towards my house, when I heard coughing. I told everyone to choose a house. I chose mine and sprinted towards it.

“Is anyone there!?” I yelled into the ruins of what used to be my house.

I heard groaning and I found a backhoe across the street and dug through the rubble. I found all my family. “Sir, come look at this!” I heard one of my men call.

“I’m coming!” I replied.


Third Place Sixth Grade: (Untitled) by Tyler Scholl (Kremmling Library)

“Beep”, the bell rings out at 3:00pm at the Chatfield Elementary in Denver, CO. “It’s time for ice cream.”, a boy named Stan with a dark brown tan and short blond hair blurts out.

Stan has been dreaming of this moment all day long, after his Mom gave him $5.00 to go to the local ice cream store after school.

“I’m going to get peppermint, chocolate and raspberry ice cream on a waffle cone.” He says while salivating at the thought.

As Stan walks to the ice cream truck he starts to order his different ice creams. When he sees a delicious red and green sorbet swirl called “zombie”. Stan excitedly orders this new flavor and takes a hungry lick out of the zombie ice cream.

The next thing Stan knows, he has turned into a scary, bony, bloody teethed zombie.

Throughout the day as more and more people eat this horrifying ice cream, the news is exploding with information of hundreds of zombies running around the city.

By the end of the week, the entire world had been taken over by billions of zombies except for one man named Pilot Bob and his crew of 86 men and women.

Pilot Bob had planned for this moment and knew it would happen. He had started a large company named Zombie Chemicals Inc. This special chemical that Zombie Chemicals make, not only stops the zombies from killing, but turns them all back into humans.

As Pilot Bob and his 86 other employees packed into 44 different B-12 bomber planes loaded with special chemicals, he said “Be Safe”.

After 3 days of thousands of chemicals sprayed, the world was back to normal. Stan went back to school with his friends, Pilot Bob was hailed, but there would always be that one “Zombie” ice cream that everyone loves!
