Death and a new life

Vincent Wonder here.

I’ve had a long, happy life…

It’s time to leave this world

and follow my wife to the glory of heaven…

No use pleading for me, my dear daughter…

I am dying of old age…


Off I go into the light.



Ben did his best to cry and share the grief with my daughter…



And after a lot of crying, they slept.

And one day they decided that the best way to meet a death

was in making love and creating new life.




No one noticed Vanessa’s pregnancy at work, and then she had a long period off work

(her sabbath months)… then she would have the kid. And then back to work.

So she planned.


Florian is good at taking care of household chores…

well, at least he does the dishes, while Vanessa cooks and Ben cleans.


„My dear daughter, I am still here on a different plane…

my ghost still cares for you…“



Vanessas pregnancy went well…


Then she gave birth to a girl.


Welcome to this world, little Alexa.


I am still present somehow as a ghost…

and I will keep watching my family…

and my spirit lives on in my daughter and son and little Alexa…

this story will continue…

Zombies gone, love rules


Vincent Wonder here.

You wonder why I can sit so quietly,

when zombies are outside roaming the streets?

Well, they aren’t any more.

But let me tell you bit by bit.

We were pretty cut-off from the world.

Only some people in the neighborhood were passing by our shelter,

and they were the only ones we could possibly contact.

So my girl’s chances for romance were small, and she knew it.


So she almost instantly hugged the first young adult she met.


And proposed to him.


Now I can understand, times are rough.

Anyway the guy accepted, and so they married on the spot.

Welcome to the family,

Ben Schwarz.



Ben is an alright person.

He’s a perfectionist and a snob, but very likeable.

But the best thing about him is his job.

The guy is a Secret Agent! Go imagine!

And he found out what made the minds of the zombies click.

And then they could send them all to a place where no one would ever miss them.

So we are all at peace now.



Our little family is very well.

I sleep a lot, Vanessa cooks a lot, and Florian –

Florian decided to go into programming. Don’t ask me what exactly he does.



I’m old, but still feel somewhat vital.


Nevertheless I sleep a lot these days and my girl is now the boss at home.


She studies a lot of my cookbooks.

„Still no real options, eh?“ – „No, sadly.“

LOVE rules in this household now.

Vanessa and Ben are enjoying their married life.

But I heard they’re still waiting with kids.

Vanessa doesn’t want to risk her job,

and is waiting for a time when they’d give her a sabbath year.



We’re still good.

But we could be so much better.

New Generation


Vincent Wonder here.

We have been good in the shelter,

even though we’re still living in desolate conditions.

We’ve been eating grilled fish since ages.


My wife Gina, she’s been working in a soup kitchen, but she felt she was growing old,

and felt like she was not up to continue in the job.

She said we should let the younger generation take control.



The younger generation are our two brilliant kids, Vanessa and Florian.


I have to admit, my wife really aged fast now.

Although she is still as foxy as ever.


And I guess she is right:

Let the new generation take control.



Vanessa and Florian were reading to each other the wisdom of the cookbooks I wrote down…

recipes from the people I encountered, that I wrote down over the years.

Vanessa started the routine of fishing and cooking…


Her fish tastes good, just as mine did.

But it’s just the same old, fish every day.

I wish we could have other meals.

So the days pass and while our kids are out working in the soup kitchen,

my wife and I sleep nap after nap, eat the sometimes rotten grilled fish and

play a lot of chess.

Florian also learned how to cook…


But Vanessa still is the main breadwinner in the household these days.


Both Florian and Vanessa are trying to find a way to get a beverage you can actually drink…

… but there’s no way to get any drink free of radioactivity.

Vanessa is often very tense these days…

she wishes so hard to be able to serve something else than fish.


But fish it is.

Day after day after day.


And sometimes I am still out myself to catch one for my family.


We’re good.

But we could be so much better.
