Zombies were the only residents in that town, and she wasn’t the exception. Many took their own life rather than age away, but they were otherwise living a peaceful life. One day, however…

As Cloe was hoping to see the outside world, she received an invitation. An invitation to attend a prestigious, diverse school only the most talented and skilled could join.
