The Creepy Little Dead Girl
22. Creepy Little Dead Girl
A staple of every zombie movie, the CLDG appears to be a normal girl around the age of 6 years. This zombie rocks quietly nibbling on a piece of human flesh until someone comes close enough that it can attack. Like a land mine, the CLDG can infect one opponent before fleeing or being destroyed.
(from 30 ZOMBIE FREAKS)
Amber Ross once was the six-year-old daughter of the local town mage. A generally sweet and winsome little girl most of the time, although she had her moments of bad temper, she hoped to learn magic and become a witch when she grew up. Not a wicked witch, but a good one, healing the sick and practising white magic and perhaps the occasional grey spell.
Sadly for her, she never got the chance to grow up. Unknown to her, her father was also living a secret life as the town necromancer, and he tried to raise the corpse of the recently deceased town mayor. He did it with the best of intentions-rather then trying to enslave the body, he was trying to bring the dead man back to life. But things went badly wrong, bringing the well-respected mayor back as a flesh-eating and ravenously hungry zombie, and worse, the proper pentagram that would have kept the undead at bay had not been drawn quite right.
The zombie tore apart and ate her father and mother, but when it saw her it was too full of human flesh to do more then give her a quick bite on the wrist before leaving.
She passed out for a few minutes and when she woke up, new and inhuman thoughts filled her mind. She went out and brought one of her best friends home, little Katie Robsart, telling her that she wanted to have some cookies, and when they got home, she stabbed Katie with a carving knife, tore her apart and ate her down to the bones, licking them clean.
At the moment, having been so recently created, and with her bite mark covered by a coral bracelet, Amber appears to be a normal six year old girl, with brown hair and brown eyes.
After a few days, assuming she survives that long, her brown eyes will go white, flies will start buzzing around her, her flesh will go a greenish grey and start to rot, and she will unmistakably be revealed as what she is, a miniture zombie.
But right now, unless it is noticed that the meat she is so happily chewing on is in fact human flesh, she seems like any other little girl. Until it is too late. Adults will easily be able to despatch her, but children her own age and younger are her favoured prey.

Reminds me of the little girl in Silent Hills. Description is well done- her history is quite creepy and a little sad.
Two minor typos and things I noticed in the Additional Info section:
1. Shouldn't it be her "bite mark" covered by... rather than "her bite" as the latter means she bit someone?
2. last paragraph- missing word: "the meat she is so happily eating/chewing on etc. is in fact human flesh"
btw, do you like the name Amber that much? I remember you are also the author of Amber, the Queen of Whore though I realise she was also a character from an earlier work.
Also, I've moved the Ice Maiden post to In work to properly expand on it using Manfred's and your ideas. Thanks so much.
I like the name Amber, yes. The typos are corrected.
I'm guessing she's somewhere rather warm and humid, to allow for such rapid decomposition into a half-rotten form?
It was the height of summer when she was bitten.
Not bad, but I feel the essence of the Creepy Little Dead Girl has rather been missed. THe heart of the CLDG is that she is literally a land mine. You see her, her infection not obviously apparent. The PCs or protagonists are drawn to her by human compassion, what zombie horrors has this little girl seen? The kicker is that when the PCs touch her, she bites one of them and their compassion is rewarded with infection and slow death!
What a twisted little character. PC's beware, especially the good priestly and compassionalte types.
She's okay, though Scras's point hits home here.
What was the movie in which the little girl starts saying 'corn...corn...CORN' at the abandoned gas station, then proceeds to sink her teeth into the unsuspecting protagonists, thinking them to be corn?
