Andy, Benedict, and Chandy got a ride through Golden Hills from a neighbor (seeing the zombified VP along the way) and picked up Dr. Alex Graves, an archaeologist, on the way into town. Alex tells them about Gaiten Academy and the driver decides to drop them all off there so he can get back to family and friends. A huge traffic jam around the local sheriff’s station is avoided and shortly they are dropped off near the entrance gate of the school. There are several vehicles already waiting but the people inside won’t open the gate because there are some zombies at the gate attacking cars and drivers. The four survivors run to the gate as additional zombies arrive. It becomes a mini epic because of the wrought iron gate in the arch and the 10ft high.stone walls. They barely survive. Andy, aka A-Money, shits himself in terror when he is nearly bitten to death trying to get over the wall. Eventually the safety of Gaiten Academy was achieved thanks to Dr. Grave’s tactical acumen and the presence of the old Winchester shotgun. Okay mostly it was the shotgun and a lever action 30-30 in the hands of a parent inside the gate.
