Stella: A Zombie Housewife

Stella before becoming a zombie letting her hair down and not wearing her pearls.

BEFORE THE APOCALYPES:
Stella's house before the apocalypes.

She was a typical 1950’s housewife who kept a meticulous home.  On the outside the lawn was manicured as well as the bushes.  Her house must have the perfect curb appeal.  Inside there was no place for dust and her floors were so clean you could eat off them.  She always had her hair done just right, not a hair out of place with a bow made out of ribbon on top.  Her dress was ironed with not a wrinkle in site and pearls adorned her neck.  Her husband was a hard worker affording Stella and the children a wonderful life.  Keeping her children cleaned as well as the house, doing laundry and making a luxurious dinner every night was a full time job for Stella but she loved her life.  Her only complaint was living next door to her lush of a sister-in-law Liz.  She put up with Liz and her antics for her husband who loved his little sister.

AFTER THE APOCALYPES:
The toxin storm rolling in.

The heavy fog of toxins.
She doesn’t remember much of that day.  The sky got dark and a fog rolled in.  The chemical bombs were coming in fast and furious.  No one could hide from them.  The winds picked up carrying the heavy toxins throughout the land.  Everyone’s body were absorbing the poisons and for some reason adjusting to breathing it in.  People were no longer alive but now started living an undead existence.  The ones who did survive and didn’t turn into zombies became prisoners.  They were farmed out to various places and became food for many zombie feasts.

Stella continued to try and keep a clean home.  Her house which once had a beautiful lawn and plants now stands barren.  Most of the walls are missing from her home which also has no roof.  She sweeps the dusty floors, puts dead branches in her flower vases and now enjoys Frosted Fingers for breakfast. The pearls still adorn her neck, the bow is still on her now disheveled hair and her dress is dirty but still ironed.  Her husband goes to work but now it is hunting people for food.  Her children enjoy people’s brains the most.  Unfortunately her sister-in-law is still around.  Liz still loves her Bloody Mary, but now she drinks real blood from women named Mary.  Stella continues with her daily routines as if nothing happened and has adjusted well to being a zombie housewife.
