I already returned to the bus to conduct the research properly on the slime thing that blocks our way. Although I have seen this kind of substance when we escaped from Kirishima High School, I never managed to get a single sample due to our hasty escape that result to the death of Mr. Leo.

Luckily, I managed to get a sample right now that made me realize that the Virus Galea is something else. Before I knew it, I already have the sample in my hands.

"Everyone! Enemies on sight... However... I don't like what I am seeing!" Sena shouted since she is on the lookout at the moment.

With that announcement coming from her, the others holding the guns immediately gathered together. A few of them started climbing the Prison Bus to get a better vantage point. I also looked at the rear of the bus with the others who also started peering outside.

What I saw made me shivers. The crowding undead that are coming for us are not the same undead we always see everyday and every night. The figures are colored orange and from this point of view, they looked like humanoid forms of gelatin. The only thing that I don't like is the fact that they are moving.

Good thing that these guys are just slow... wait, why are they slow, they are under the Night Rage influence right? But how come these undead are more on the slow side? I saw Shu aimed and fired on the enemy. I saw one of the blob of undead swaggered due to the fact that it was shot by Shu. It fell into the ground but it stood up again.

"F*ck! The hell are those?! They don't go down at all!" Shu panicked.

My interest is piqued but suddenly, I felt terror. We don't like the look of this.

Although I am tired, I don't want to end up useless. Finally, they gave me a gun and it was a Springfield MA9106 M1A(1) Standard Black Composite Stock version! This gun appears way back in World War 2! And what is more, this is only legal on gun collectors in USA and illegal in Japan! How the heck did these guys get a gun this good?! What is more, it is full with a scope and a good stock and the bullets used are the .308 Winchester(2) bullets! This gun really had the proper bullets to use!

I hold the gun in my hands and properly crouch down from the top of the Prison Bus. I aimed the gun carefully and hold my breath to steady the my aim. I wanted to be the first to shoot but then this guy who is accompanied by Souichi earlier... I think his name is Shu, pulled the trigger and shoot the blob of slime that is walking towards us.

I was amazed. He just aimed but he quickly pressed the trigger and managed to land a headshot without doing a proper aiming? However, I was stunned by the next thing that happened. Usually, the zombies killed by a gun in the head should go down and die, yet this blob of zombie didn't follow the rules and stood back up! What is this, Return of the Living Dead(3) where the zombies don't die by headshot?!

"F*ck! The hell are those?! They don't go down at all!" Shu panicked

However, I clearly see earlier when I tagged along with Souichi and the others that you can kill a zombie with just a headshot. But what is currently going on?! I tried shooting too and managed to do a headshot but the zombie did not go down too. Instead, they are still moving.

The big burly guy who is called Mr. Suzuki stood up and looked at everyone holding a gun.

"Everyone! Help round up the survivors! We need to stand on the roof of this prison bus! I doubt they are the same undead we have fought in the past!"

The others nod and they quickly return back to the ground and ordered everyone inside the prison bus to climb up the prison bus. Everyone complied with it and did what they said. They even assisted those people who are collapsed at the moment like Souichi up into the prison bus. A few of the guys go to the truck which is also the same height of the prison bus so that the rooftop of the bus is not so crowded.

The zombies that looked like jellies started to gather below. Luckily, they appear to lack the ability to climb up which proved to be a good news. However, I think its a very bad situation. In just a few more minutes, the slow moving jellies gathered below, slamming the walls of the bus and the truck.

"Holy sh*t, are we going to die here?" I trembled. I will die before I can showcase my ability to shoot like a professional Sniper?

"No, we won't!" A girl with a shoulder long black hair holding a laptop said and frowns at my comment.

"Wha?"

"We won't die, and we will continue to live. We won't lose hope, because we are the Blood Battalion!" this girl said.

Another guy who looked like an American stood up and raised his AR15.

"Lets try stalling time for Kyosei to return, we will surely live!" he aimed and fired the gun on full burst.

RATATATATATATATATATAT

The others also nodded. I can see that no one from them are actually in despair seeing the battle. This group are all strong people. But do I really belong here? I am a coward...

Before I fell into despair, a hand slaps my shoulder. I realized that it was the girl holding a laptop who slaps my shoulder. She smiled at me.

"I am Nanami. You are the new guy rescued by my brother right? Nice to meet you in this damnable situation."

Footnotes:

1. The Springfield Armory M1A is a civilian version of the M14 rifle designed and manufactured by Springfield Armory, Inc., beginning in 1974. The term "M1A" is a proprietary title for Springfield Armory's M14-pattern rifle. Early M1A rifles were built with surplus G.I. parts until Springfield Armory, Inc. began manufacturing their own.

2. The .308 Winchester (pronounced "three-oh-eight") is a rimless, bottlenecked rifle cartridge and is the commercial cartridge from which the 7.62×51mm NATO round was derived. The .308 Winchester was introduced in 1952, two years prior to the NATO adoption of the 7.62×51mm NATO T65. Winchester branded the cartridge and introduced it to the commercial hunting market as the .308 Winchester. Winchester's Model 70, model 100 and Model 88 rifles were subsequently chambered for the new cartridge. Since then, the .308 Winchester has become the most popular short-action, big-game hunting cartridge worldwide. It is also commonly used for hunting, target shooting, metallic silhouette, bench rest target shooting, palma, metal matches, military sniping, and police sharpshooting.

3. The Return of the Living Dead is a 1985 American comedy horror film written and directed by Dan O'Bannon, and starring Clu Gulager, James Karen, Thom Matthews and Don Calfa. The film tells the story of how a warehouse owner, accompanied by his two employees, mortician friend, and a group of teenage punks, deal with the accidental release of a horde of brain-hungry zombies onto an unsuspecting town. The film, described as a "mordant punk comedy", is known for introducing the popular concept of zombies eating brains, as opposed to eating human flesh, like previous zombie iterations. It is also known as the first film to ever show zombies running, as well as zombies being able to speak. The film is also quite unique from virtually all other cinematic depictions of the living dead, in that the zombies portrayed in the film cannot be killed by a standard "head shot".
