Game Changers of the Apocalypse by Mark Kirkbride

Game Changers of the Apocalypse
by Mark Kirkbride
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic Horror

It’s always the end of the world when you break up with someone. This time it really is... Everyone on the planet has mysteriously disappeared, leaving exes Greg and Polly. They've survived the apocalypse, yet shouldn't have. Battling each other and a malevolent entity that teases them with their fate, how long can they remain ahead? Even more terrifying than everyone else on the planet disappearing is what’s about to take their place…

Polly caught his arm, held him back. “Greg, Greg, talk to me.” In the underground passageway, her voice had a slight stuck-in-a-drainpipe quality to it. “What are we doing down here?” She relaxed her grip a little. “I know we’re looking for something. It’d just be nice if you actually told me what.”
He panted.
He’d been running around at street level trying to find the way down and, resting only in the stinking lift, which, bizarrely, like the electronic signboard, worked, he’d been running around this maze of concrete corridors deep under the Trocadero. He’d battered down one wooden door with an empty gas canister he’d found up the corridor only to be confronted by another door that had required similar treatment.
He’d just dumped the canister back in the passageway. As he tried to move forwards again, her fingernails dug into his arm.

Burning up, sweating, he gulped, coughed. Trying to get his breathing under control, he bent over. “Okay, okay...” He straightened up. “In Trafalgar Square… before we found each other… I think someone was watching me.”
