Blog Tour for Resilient by Toni Cox @ToniCoxAuthor @Shalini_G26

What would you do if you were the last person on Earth?
The outbreak of the S1 Virus in China is breaking news all over the globe – it is killing apes by the hundreds.
Erika, who has a pretty good life in Johannesburg, South Africa, is little concerned with wildlife disasters so far away.
But when Erika falls ill and is bedridden for a couple of days, the world is not as she left it.
An empty city greets her the day she sets foot outside her door. Abandoned cars, a creepy silence, and hollow-eyed corpses is all she finds.
Alone, frightened, and heartbroken, she must now find a way to survive this apocalyptic world she has woken up to. Does she have the will, the strength, and the ingenuity to survive?
Against all odds she has one thing going for her – she’s resilient.

Resilient

My heart is hammering wildly in my chest as I drive past the shops and the police station. A line from an old movie floats up in my memory. I see dead people.

There, at the restaurant on the corner, are two bodies on the pavement. A man and a woman. From the look of it, he had her in his arms before she died. I swallow the lump in my throat, terrified.

Putting my foot hard on the pedal, I speed around the corner with screeching tires. I don’t know what is going on and I just want to get away from here.

Haring down the road, I fix my eyes in front of me, ignoring the crazy world around me. When I finally reach the Murray & Roberts building, I zoom into the underground parking, coming to a squealing stop right in front of the elevator.

I sit there for a moment, breathing heavily. I don’t know what to think. Am I still hallucinating from the fever I had?

“Pull yourself together,” I tell myself.

Shaking, I climb out of the car and look around the deserted parking. Besides my Polo, there are only four other cars here. I see Stephan’s SUV and hope moves my feet towards the elevator.

I push the button, but the light does not come on. Of course, no electricity. I climb the stairs to the first floor where the reception is. It is empty, not even the security guard is by the entrance door.

Closing the door again, I carry on up the stairs to the second floor to where the offices are. An eerie silence greets me as I open the door to the large, open-plan office. The only light comes from the windows and the shadows I cast on the office desk dividers as I walk past is just creepy.

“Shit.”

I drop my bag and rush into Stephan’s private office. My boss is slumped over his desk, head tilted at an uncomfortable angle.

“Stephan.” I touch his shoulder. It is cold, even through his shirt. “Stef?”

Bracing myself, I take him by the shoulders and push him back in his chair. A scream escapes me when I see his bloated face and I suddenly become intensely aware of the smell. I gag.

Crying, I run from his office, past the deserted work stations, and back down the stairs. Only when I am back in my car and the doors are locked, do I stop to think about what I just saw.

He’s dead. They’re all dead. My head reels. This must be some kind of nightmare. 

With shaking fingers, I start my car, my thoughts turning to my parents.

Abandoned City and baked earth
