Recently a virus developed in a small town in Louisiana, a few miles east of New Orleans.
It has the contagious effect of the common cold, it has the deadliness of smallpox, but has a unique set of symptoms. Stage one takes place an hour after infection, it just feels like a cold. Stage two takes place 2 hours later, the patient begins to experience nausea and projectile vomiting. Stage 3 takes place an hour later, they display severe mental illness symptoms, a fever, delirium, the chills, and many other things, they resort to mumbling nonsense. Stage 4, after 2 hours of this, is the second to last stage, they become incredibly angry, dumb, and chaotic, they chant and freak out for a while before falling asleep abruptly. Stage 5, the worst stage, is after an hour of sleep. They wake up with a slow heart rate, a cold body, pale skin, bloodshot eyes, and slow decay. Another symptom is displayed as well, they lose all empathy, intelligence, and gain 2 things. Anger and Hunger. You are an ordinary person with a dog and a room mate. Quick! Make it to a safe house!
