    Hank (Henry) Francis Bowler was in New Orleans for a convention on boat motors and chain saws. He'd been running the part of 'buyer of fancy new things' at the swamp hut near the Bayou over past the Venetian Isles.

    He woke up this morning and couldn't find any of his swamp buddies, so he figured he'd grab breakfast first... only to discover the hotel was overrun by them Biters the news had been talking about. And they say these things would never get past the swamps.

    Grabbing a nearby chainsaw, he made his way out of the hotel buffet with a few people, all aiming for evac on the roof.

    Stila Miles had arrived late last night, dropped from a helicopter into a school field. She had been driven past an evacuation center but it appeared overrun. Barely having got any sleep since, she had only managed to spend the hours repacking supplies and attempting to secure the premise.

    By dawn, it appeared futile and she extracted all the vials of serum she had earlier unpacked into the mini-bar fridge into an insulated carrier before heading out of her room. Opening the door of the stairwell leading to the roof, she walked straight into Hank Bowler with a start.

    When the outbreak started, Mercy Star was just another tourist in the French Quarter of New Orleans. She heard of folks going mad from drinking bad water 'round these parts, but the her nice travel agent lady told her that things were all well under control. "If you see an infected person, keep your distance and calmly report them to the nearest law enforcement officer," the lady said. Mercy had no idea the kind of wild stampede she'd end up in.

    She ran through an open staff-only door and found herself in a hotel kitchen, an 'infected' man close on her heels. Grabbing the closest item within reach, Mercy swung a cast-iron pan at her peruser. The cookware's sharp edge neatly contacted with its skull, and with a loud thud the zombie fell. Taking advantage of borrowed time, she rushed further inward, stopping as her eyes fell on a man who looked like he had no idea what was going on.

    Keniryo Dakamura was here with his organization for an exchange with the deputy Mayor of New Orleans. Directly from Osaka, they took a private jet because few commercial airlines were operating.

    Dakamura was what the Yakuza considered a 'side man' he came with deliveries, and in this case, he was handcuffed to a briefcase containing $250k USD in cash. When the attack happened early in the morning, his boss was in a meeting with the Chinese-Americans in the adjacent room.

    An hour later, he entered with the briefcase on cue -- but they were all dead, devoured by a flesh-eating plague.

    Scanning the room, the Japanese found a set of traditional swords against the back wall, untouched by the fray. Giving a brief prayer to his now deceased mentor, he removed the Daito and Wakizashi pair, and exited. People were heading to the roof, so it seemed.

    Child star and beauty queen, Ella Jean was soo annoyed when her assistant never came back with the strawberry jelly doughnut she asked for. How was she supposed to promote her autobiography on an empty stomach!? Her thoughts were interrupted by an obnoxious car alarm. Looking outside the window, Ella saw some crazies hitting the noisy car.

    "Better get outta here..." she said as she opened the door. She cringed when she saw an impaled zombie on the ground, an axe sticking out of its skull.

    "...convenient!" Ella chipped, taking the axe and making a run towards the sound of people on the roof.

    Hank turned off his chainsaw when he saw this girl in front of him. She looked medical and had all sorts of things with her and he quickly grabbed on to her arm and pulled her with him.

    "That there looks important," he voiced in his accent, "ya stick to me lil' lady and let's make it to the roof, I heard some guy back thar yelling 'extraction on roof' b'fore he got mauled by a fat 'un."

    Fat 'un...? Stila pulled the straps of her kit around her and stared at the chainsaw-toting man in bewilderment. There were screams, and the sound drove them upwards. On the seventh floor, the door they passed swung open, revealing contorted faces and limbs.

    "Aaargh!"

    With a grab at an adjacent fire extinguisher, Stila swung at the creatures, breaking the neck of the closest. She bolted away, taking the steps two at a time.

    "Why aren't you wearing a mask?!" she huffed as Hank pulled her along...

    Frying pan in hand, Mercy looked at the man with a briefcase before her.

    “No way out from there,” the Texan took a metal ladle and barred the door, preventing any more infected from rushing through. “We better try make it up to the roof, I hear helicopters…”

    Just as she finished her sentence, Mercy saw a stream of people now running in the opposite direction and spilling down the stairs.

    Not realizing that the briefcase was cuffed to her new-found-friend’s arm she wondered what in god’s green earth could be in it that he would risk life and limb in a situation like this. “No offense, Ninja-guy, but ya might want to lose the baggage.”

    Dakamura made it down to the kitchen, tried unsuccessfully to narrate his situation to an American tourist, and decided it was best to just go with the flow. Her actions and pitched voicing indicated that she was also heading for the roof.

    “Keniryo,” he introduced himself, “no English.”

    The shorter Wakizashi was perfect for close-quarter-combat, much less likely to get stuck in a wall. With it armed in one hand, Keniryo used both the sword and the Samsonite 5mm-spaced-armored steel briefcase as leverage… although probably not the type of leverage his Yakuza family first intended.

    A light group of 4-5 mindless individuals barred their way and while he watched the American girl ready to strike with her strange weapon of choice -- a pan -- he figured he was in the better position to clear this.

    Bone against metal and blade made a sufficiently satisfactory sound, and at the end of the hall, he spied a little blonde girl running by with just what he needed.

    “Axe!” Dakamura shouted.

    “What-the-what?” Ella turned around and saw the man cuffed to a suitcase. From her early years touring Japan she could decipher that “Axe!” meant, “Please cut the chain that is attaching me to this needless suitcase in a zombie survival situation.”

    “Ok!” Ella shouted, closing her eyes and striking down with the passion of a child star. Luckily for Keniryo, the weapon hit true. With a spark he was free, and that also meant he had another hand to save her from an oncoming crazy.

    She ducked as he gripped a zombie’s neck behind her and the lady with him smashed its brains in with a skillet.

    “Thanks, you two just saved Ella Jean. I won’t forget this!”

    “Whut mask? Like for halloween?” he said almost condescendingly, because like always, he knew better, “Lady, I ain’t playing some Cosplay role of a Chainsaw Murderer, Ima done this for reals, we got zombies, if you dun notice!”

    Rushing forward a bit, with his electric chainsaw, he cut off a few zombie heads. Nevermind that some of them were already dead.

    “Ima Hank, medic lady” he said, “Hank Bowler, dun ask, I done no bowling to get that name.”

    He used the chainsaw to open through a few doors too frustrating to use the handle for.

    There was a light shower of sparks as a door swung open and Stila lifted the extinguisher in her hands, ready to smash her way through any more disjointed bodies, but the hallway was empty. A sudden roar sounded from above--and she knew those were not from the helicopters.

    "Come on!" she screamed above the approaching din, "Up's out!" Scrambling out into the empty hallway just as the animated corpses, she made for an adjacent stairwell and scampered back down.

    "Where do--" she slammed the end of the extinguisher into a body, "they--" and another, "come from!" The third body fell and Stila pulled the pin of the extinguisher to empty half its contents on the fourth.

    “Ella Jean? Hot damn, I used to have your picture on my school lunch boxes!” Mercy gushed, “I’m Mercy, and this is… Kenyiro No-English.”

    Something upstairs made a ruckus and soon the Texan saw exactly what it was. Some redneck with a chainsaw and his lady friend with a fire extinguisher had just fended off some of the infected.

    They made it clear that the roof was no longer an option, Mercy remembered that her travel agent had told her that the Civil Emergency and Defense Agency would be a safe place to go if things get out of hand, “Var’mits are all on the roof! We all need to get ourselves a vehicle and head to CEDA up north. Any of ya’ll know if there’s a garage in this hotel?”

    He comprehended that this Ella Jean was the same girl in the posters on the lobby’s walls, but the Japanese said nothing. With the introduction of two additional members to their group, a change of plan seemed to be brewing. Something about cedar? Is that a hotel suite?

    The sound of grating footsteps and whining roars from overhead indicated that advancing to the roof may be unsafe from so close to ground level. Then he heard American girl say ‘Garage’ and understood where that was.

    “Down?” he suggested, hinting to an elevator shaft, this one led him directly to the carpark before.

    “My Limo!” Ella shouted, “Hope that elevator’s working!”

    Pressing the button and hearing an immediate ‘ding’ Ella rushed in and urged the others of the group to do the same before more crazies hit them. She thought it was probably a good idea if they stuck together. As soon as they reached the basement, the multi-talented actress grabbed a pink swarovski crystal encrusted key and fob from the valet rack.

    “I’m not driving… who’s driving?”

    Being from backcountry, Hank had been listening to Ella Jean’s music since he was a tyke. He’d hoped to see her perform live here too, but ticket purchasing was always beyond his understanding. And the Bayou way was that if there weren’t no way to understand it, you don’t do it at all.

    Next to her was an All-American pan-holding princess and a Chinaman that looked like he hopped out of a kung-fu movie. They must all be famous.

    “Gosh, Ella Jean,” he whispered a little to the medic lady while they were in the elevator, “her music speaks to my soul.”

    When they got down, he was suddenly interested in the sparkling key to Miss Jean’s ride.

    “I can drive,” he replied to Ella Jean, “A limo’s like a normal car? Chinaman can shotgun, cuz his kind drives on the other side like yo, he all’s used to that.”

    Pushed along by Hank, Stila relinquished the trusty fire extinguisher and scampered into the limousine after a Texan lilt and a blonde she recognised as Ella Jean. Key in ignition, the vehicle rumbled to life and wended out of the garage.

    "Pontchartrain!" Stila called out Hank, "CEDA set up a base at the N'Orleans Arena. It was still functional when I checked in last night."

    As she spoke, she undid the straps that had bound her kit to her and looked at the two women seated nearby, "I have the vaccinations." Breaking a vacuum seal, she extracted a prefilled syringe, "Who's first?"

    “Me!” Mercy stuck out her arm for the vaccine, seeing as she was sitting right next to the doctor-scientist-lady.

    Relieved that she was now safe from the infection, Mercy searched for items to fortify the limo. Under her seat she found a strange metal box with several semi-automatic pistols and accompanying ammunition.

    “Guess we’ll be needing these.” She passed the firearms to each able member of the team, “Try and conserve the ammo, we don’t know how many of them infected we’ll see.”

    Standing, she peered out of the limousine’s skylight. Luckily the road ahead was relatively clear.

    It was illegal among some Samurai sectors to sheath a bloody Wakizashi. Dakamura followed tradition at the expense of his suit. In the elevator, he took off his jacket, used the inner lining of silk to wipe the weapon clean, and placed it back into its covering.

    Next, he wasn’t too keen about being called ‘Chinaman’, but being in New Orleans meant adjusting to the strangest things like alligator meat and people who look like they were always in need of better hygiene.

    Keniryo nodded at ‘Shotgun’ and took a seat next to the driver.

    Then needles were presented and the women received their shots, Dakamura wondered briefly on what it was before he was asked to give his arm. After receiving the vaccine, he was given a needle to administer a dose to the redneck.

    Military helicopters flew overhead, foreshadowing future events. He was in this country as a diplomat from Osaka, at the juncture, he was likely going to be sent back to Japan without much fuss.
