Survival of the Fittest
Mu-yeong, Seo-bi, and the magistrate all managed to survive the zombie attack. Throughout the night the zombies managed to spread through the entire province of Dongnae. Chang managed to flee from the zombies on foot and made his way to the waiting Mu-yeong. The pair quickly figured out that in order to permanently kill the zombies you must sever their brain stems. Therefore, they set off for the Royal Barracks, to inform them of the zombie threat and how to defeat them. Back in Hanyang, the king was being observed by both the queen and the head of the Haewon Cho Clan. The king was feeding happily on a freshly deceased corpse, the queen was urged to not put herself in any danger until her new son was born. Finally, the sun came out and all of the zombies fell asleep.
A Plan of Attack
With the light of the new day, the survivors of the attack at the magistrate’s office began to parse through the charred wreckage of their settlement. The survivors convened in the courtyard and discussed how to best combat the zombie threat. Seo-bi advised burning the bodies, but the families of the nobly-born were resistant to the idea. The magistrate decided to burn the bodies of all the peasants and hold proper funerals for the nobly-born. All of a sudden, Chang strode in and made his identity known. Chang ordered all corpses be burned by nightfall and sent a messenger to Hanyang to inform them of the tragedy that had befallen the province of Dongnae. In Hanyang, the head of the scholars was informed of more corpses being found in the king’s palace. He decided to go and visit the king himself nd would be accompanied by Lord Ahn Hyeon.
Back in Dongnae, the magistrate called for Seo-bi to be brought to his personal chambers. The magistrate attempted to seduce her, but she mistook his advances for a medical problem. Consequently, she diagnosed the magistrate with gonorrhea. Mu-yeong interrupted and took Seo-bi to see Lee Chang. Seo-bi recalled how physician Lee Seung-hui had noted that the zombie virus had mutated and how he had died on the night of the initial outbreak in Jiyulheon. Chang resolved to find the resurrection plant responsible for the outbreak and reverse engineer a cure for the zombie disease. Also, Chang told Mu-yeong that the king had died and had been treated with the resurrection plant. The nobles evacuated the village by a lone boat in the harbor.
