Fandom: One Direction (Band)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Zayn Malik/Liam Payne
Characters: Zayn Malik, Liam Payne
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, zombie!Zayn, firefighter!Liam, kind of major character death except not really, because it happened before the story and it's how Zayn became a zombie, but it's all good now, this is just filled with silliness, and it's unbeta'd just to warn you
Series: Part 1 of Zombie Take-Over
"Nice costume, mate, but you're a bit late for Halloween, aren't you?"
The zombie - man - scowled and lifted a bag and shook it; Liam could hear the rattle of presumably a full bag of candy. "Already got tons here, don't I? You knock on people's doors and all they want to do is shove sugary sweets at you and tell you to go away. I need your help."
"Oh, okay. Did your car break down? You need to call for a lift or something?" But as he peered around the other man, Liam could see that the street was empty.
"No. I wish it was that simple. I woke up in the graveyard last night. I think I'm a zombie."
Liam wakes up the morning after Halloween to find a zombie knocking on his door. Just a cute little ficlet.
Update 12/4/2014: Added a new chapter! I'm working on a companion piece which will be posted separately but at this point, I don't anticipate adding any more to this one so I'm calling it completed.
Update 1/17/2015: Now part of a series! Check out the companion fic/sequel - The Life and Times of Zayn the Zombie.
( Sequel is under the cut )
