Loner by Rob Morganbesser (Genre: Living Dead)
Ten years after the dead rose.
Jim Evans awoke to the sounds of silence. This lack of noise brought him instantly to his feet, hands coming up to rub sleep snot from his eyes. Silence? There hadn't been any silence since they had chased him in to this small store. Fortunately the door was stout and he'd blocked it off well. He tried to stay awake while they rampaged about, but lack of food (his last had been some moldy chocolate bars) and water (drunk out of the tank on back of a toilet, happy that it wasn't the bright blue of disinfectant) had driven him to sleep.
