John

The blood seemed everywhere. The poor old man was trying to speak and warn the doctor of his ailment yet gargled words came out. “Infected…Zoonotic…No Cure.” The monitor went flat line. John was his name and he was crazed only after a lifetime of achievements. No family, no friends left after his ailment and his will was the only means to after death guidelines. Do not bury me as my body is contaminated and would rid the world of everything. He was to be incinerated. Yet the lady hired to fulfill this was devout and would not allow it even after she promised. He was laid to rest at his home near the lake that he would kayak almost daily searching for answers. She was his daughter, an illegitimate daughter, but was cared for by John after the car wreck. This brought them together as they did not have anyone else.
The earthworm worked its way through the soil looking for its meal. This was John. It wiggled through the eye socket enjoying the juice as we enjoy a good juicy steak. That single item fulfilled it and it moved on oblivious to what was digested as it was delicious. The red robin listened to the ground and moved quickly yet quietly to the area to the earthworm. This worm had no chance as the bird had to feed its young. The nest was atop an old majestic oak tree. The spring time had brought good fortune as three baby robins were born. And they were constantly fed by a good set of parents. These parents did not know what was being regurgitated and fed to the babies. However they grew strong and started their own life after first flight.
The small town of Kutlo was similar to many small towns as gossip and talk was of happenings of town people and happenings close by. The outside world had almost no effect in their everyday lives. Kutlo was nestled in the foothills and a river ran by it. This river was the means of everything. A captain of the Loppy brought his dog to town and seemed so happy most people touched it as they believed it enjoyed it. This dog was infected but showed no signs. It licked and slobbered spreading saliva to the citizens of Kutlo. They went along with their lives living happily and of no knowledge what was to be.
