(Kyosei's View)

The undead were still too much in the streets and the trucks were bouncing up and down due to the different undead trying to attack the convoys. Luckily, not a single one of our cars is broken at the moment but we are not sure whether we will be able to do that. With all the undead trying to trip the trucks one by one, we are keeping them killed again and again.

Still, it is a bit nice that I am riding a vehicle right now than when I was still at school where I  have to deal with the undead manually while trying to escape them. It was good since I don't have to run.

\"Being in the military, I know that fighting enemies is one of the jobs of a soldier, but this is the toughest war that I have undertaken yet. I am not sure whether we can still survive another day. I am not sure whether we will still see the rising sun later,\" one of the meek type soldier muttered. He might have said that to break the cold tension of the truck but he made it colder.

\"That is just cowardice. I don't mean to be judgemental but I don't even feel much in this situation we have right now. You soldiers are the most suitable combatants in this situation and the dead are nothing but just moving targets by your guns. And yet, here you all getting scared by this type of sh*t? I am not sure who is the soldier and the civilian here,\" I said, annoyed by what they are saying.

Just like in the movies and stories, it is a very big mystery as to why the soldiers are the first line of defense from these kinds of threats and yet they fail to even contain the threat. And the usual thing is that the civilians are the ones instead able to find the answer to end the sh*t. Looks like I am just being optimistic by these people, they are all afraid.

\"You think we wanted to fight? We wanted to just escape instead of fighting. We don't want to fight because it scares us! You civilians are also scared, right? This is not your common fight! You understand me right? You only fight to survive right?\" the soldier is on the verge of crying.

\"I don't. I may be a civilian but fighting is my life. And if you think I am the same as the other civilians who are afraid to die then don't count me. I am not afraid to die and killing this bunch of lowlives is nothing in my eyes. Being scared is something I already abandoned even before the outbreak started. And don't think of running away, since you are on the ride where death will knock the weak. And even the ones who are strong are not spared. This is a battle where being scared will just drag everyone down. Feel free to hate me, hate flows in my body and that is what makes me running and moving.\"

The soldiers were not able to speak and were stunned in there. I calmly pull out the cleaver and smash it down to the undead that grab the ledge of the truck.

\"Now shut up and fight. Words don't take any sh*t on the battlefield.\"

...

After the small drama in the truck, the ride is smoother than expected. However, now we are getting to the highways finally, the problem strikes now to us.

\"Looks like we are going to a side trip guys, all of the trucks need to refuel if we want to return to the base. Prepare the remaining bullets guys, we will need to set up a perimeter and deal the undead while the trucks refuel,\" the driver said to us.

After hearing that, the soldiers were surely shaken by the news. Fighting in the trucks already proved for them as something dangerous, now we are about to fight to hold the fort, we are now going to be in a stall situation and our bullets will no longer last too much. But I am fine since I am more of a melee user. However, it doesn't apply to the soldiers. Most of them rely too much on their guns and once it runs out of bullets, the guns don't work too much as melee weapons and if you are talking about the combat knife, I doubt they can utilize it very much unless they are good in training using them and can eliminate the undead in quick succession using the melee weapons they might possess.

The Tennoji Zoo might be near to the Tsutenkaku Tower but due to the reason that we are trying to avoid the horde that is coming from the direction of the road we used before where the scouts spotted a few Juggernauts, we are forced to use the long way to the tower. Now, we are now going to refuel but I am having a bad feeling about this.

Since we are going for a stall battle against the horde, the chances that the undead surrounds us are bigger and escaping and scraping off the undead horde that tries to attack us is going to be hard. Good thing that these soldiers were all prepared. One of the trucks prepared a  lot of ballistic shields for the soldiers to use for bashing the undead while some prepared a few crates of bullets for the guns. They even prepared a few aluminum barricades that are usually used only for crowd controls that is happening during a rally and protests that rarely happens lately until the outbreak. This will be a good item to use to bar the progress of the running horde towards us.

\"The gas station is on sight! Prepare for deployment!\"

As soon as the gas station is on sight, we are now heading to a very dangerous mission so that we can just go home. And from my senses, I am quite sure blood will spill once more.
