NEW RULE: no loud noises! Loud noises bring Virals like flies to freaking honey! I know I mentioned that before, about blowing up barrels and stuff like that, but "loud noises" don't even have to be all that loud to pull those sons of bitches in. Only thing I did was fall through a wooden roof today, and you would've thought I'd stood up and screamed, "Come and get me! Dinner time!" So from now on, this particular best-selling science-fiction author-in-the-making is going to be quite like a little mouse.
