In the revision mirror both Kitana and Liu were drifting off slowly to sleep. Johnny was already sleeping in the front passenger seat beside her. As the car went dead, Kitana’s eyes snapped open with alertness. “Hey, Why did you stop driving?” Kitana yawned leaning over the seat. Her long black hair was slightly messed up. “I’m tired. Liu and Johnny are sleeping. You were sleeping. I’m going to rest for a while.” Sonya told her. Kitana stared through the thick canopy of trees. The crescent moon shone slightly through the trees, reflecting silver light on their lush green leaves. Kitana looked thoughtful for a moment and shrugged. “I guess so, It isn’t fair on you is it?” Kitana answered and settled back down into her seat. Sonya reached back and grabbed a soft pillow from Kitana’s lap. “Sorry.” Kitana said sleepily. Sonya’s eyes slowly began to close. Just as she got comfortable, her head nestling in the pillow, a loud growl was heard from under the car. Sonya was unsure about this noise and rubbed her eyes. “What now?” She complained sitting up. She caused the car to rock slightly, waking Johnny up. “Sonya, what are you doing?” He asked. Sonya smiled warmly at Johnny. “I heard something, Don’t worry, I’ll look and_!” She stopped talking and spun her head around as the thing under the car dashed off into the darkness. “Was that it?” Johnny questioned. Sonya nodded.Suddenly a gunshot was heard, Loud screeches and screams where audible. Sonya jumped. “What the hell!” Johnny exclaimed. All this commotion awoke Liu and Kitana. “The noises, where are they from?” Liu asked. Johnny exited the car. “I’ll go check.” He informed. Sonya grasped his arm, frightened. “Be careful.” She cried. Her brown eyes full of deep concern. “Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon” Johnny assured with a small kiss on the cheek. Sonya just watched as he walked off. Kitana squeezed Sonya’s shoulder lightly, to comfort her. “He’ll come back, I know he will.” She whispered. ______________________________________________________ Jill Valentine leaned over the stairs railing, catching her breath. Taking deep gasps of air into her lungs. She had never ran so fast before. At least Jill was safe. Luckily the big mansion was there or else Jill would still be running. Her work partner Chris Redfield sat down on the wooden staircase, looking at his tired friend. "You okay?" He asked. Jill took a moment to look at him. “I’m fine.” She said. “Where is Barry and Wesker ? I saw them come in and now they're not here.”Chris said. “Maybe they're investigating this mansion for any clues. This could be the hide out of those murderers. The cannibalistic ones.” Jill said. Chris smiled at Jill’s ability to answer any question thrown at her. “What kind of people would break into peoples houses and eat them?” Chris wondered. “Cannibalistic murderers.” Jill answered. Chris grinned again. “What about the S.T.A.R.S Bravo team, what happened to them?” He said. “Their helicopter crashed, that’s why we are looking for them.” Jill said. “What are my chances of going out with a pretty girl this Saturday night?” Chris joked. "Not a chance buddy.” Jill answered trying not to laugh at him. Chris started up the stairs. “Okay Miss-Know-It-All, I’m going upstairs to find Barry and Wesker. Don’t disappear because then I won’t know where you are.” Chris informed. Jill didn’t answer and just sat where Chris previously was with her head in her lap. _____________________________________________________ The four friends stared up at the ultra huge mansion shrouded in mist. They were all very unsure about this place. “They went in here. There were four of them. I even saw what must have chased them. It disappeared before I got a proper look.” Johnny said. “It looks abandoned. We should check it out” Kitana suggested referring to the boards that covered various windows and the piles of leaves, twigs and dirt covering the houses driveway. Sonya revealed a handgun which she had hidden under her white top. "Well I’ve got this luckily, Just in case I get crap with those dudes whom entered the house already.” Sonya said. Kitana and Liu had already entered the house. Now Sonya and Johnny had no choice but to follow them. When they reached the door, they saw a huge hall with a wooden staircase, white tiles but no Kitana and Liu. Sonya climbed the stairs, followed by Johnny. There were two doors on either side of the second floor. Sonya grasped the old fashioned iron door handle on the left door. Johnny told Sonya that it’s a good idea to go into the opposite doors to find their friends. ______________________________________________________ “Why does Chris have to have all the fun, there is no way that I am going to wait for him.” Jill complained. Her black combat boots stamped against the floor boards with fury. The hall was so dimly lit that Jill had to take out her pocket flashlight to help her see. The eerie hall was silent. Her flashlight flickered and went dead. “Shit.” She swore hurling the flashlight to the ground. Trust the flashlight to die when she most needed it. Suddenly a gunshot shattered the silence like a cricket ball smashing through a window. Jill sprinted over to find a woman in her twenties holding a gun to a man who was proceeding towards her. The woman glanced at Jill in fright and once again blasted a round of ammunition at him. “Hey, stop!” Jill ordered the man. He slowly turned his head. Jill’s mouth dropped open in horror. Her blue eyes widened in fright. The man was a walking corpse. His eyes suggested evil.They appeared to illuminously glow and burned into Jill’s own eyes. Its moans filled the hall. Its skin was filled with wounds and vicious scarring. Bits of flesh had dropped from him revealing bone and muscle. Its teeth and gums had rotted slightly. It lurched towards Jill. Jill whipped out her gun, finishing the zombie off with her bullets. The blond woman ran off, a card falling from her jeans pocket. Jill finished examining the zombie and investigated the card. “Sonya Blade, Special Forces.” Jill thought pocketing the card. Meanwhile Sonya ran through another twisting corridor. She just wanted to get out of this place. What if there were more of those things in the house? She hoped Johnny was okay. What Sonya didn’t know was that more creatures were ahead. Not zombies but they were still deadly. Sonya glanced at the blood splashed on various areas of the wall. It made her shiver. The same growl that she had heard from under the car previously was heard again. From under a shelf, a dog appeared. This dog was not nice though. It’s eyes were blood red. Its body had claw marks all over it. It bared its teeth. Drool dripped from its snarling mouth. Sonya skidded to a stop and retreated back. She sensed the dog chasing her, stalking her eagerly. She jumped in fright as another dog joined the chase. She was so scared that she didn’t see the woman running in the opposite direction. They both collided and fell to the ground. “Hi I’m Jill” The woman said briefly, aware of the dogs only meters in front. Jill was angry but didn’t yell at Sonya. Instead she swiftly pulled herself back onto her feet. The two dogs were hesitant for a moment and then attacked. One dog snapped at Sonya’s foot. Sonya whipped her foot into the dogs head. It whined as its neck snapped. Jill dodged the second creature as it leaped at her.It flew across her head and as it did Jill held her gun up and shot it in the stomach. It fell and didn’t move. Jill handed Sonya the card. “You dropped it.” Jill said. Sonya took it back and looked gratefully at Jill. Jill was only young, probably around 5ft with short brown hair and pretty, blue eyes. “What’s going on here?” Sonya asked. Jill shook her head. “I don’t know. That was the first time that I saw those things. This has to be the murderers hideout.” Jill spoke, both to Sonya and herself. “Murderers hideout?” Sonya questioned. “Yeah, There have been these murders were these people attack families and eat them. The S.T.A.R.S bravo team went to investigate and mysteriously disappeared. My team alpha has to find them while finding these murderers hideout.Then our leader Wesker and colleague Barry vanished. My partner Chris and I have quite a job.” Jill explained, filling in the gory details. Sonya grimaced. “The S.T.A.R.S seem a lot like the Special Forces. I can help you two with the mission.”Sonya suggested. Jill appeared unsure. “Well this is for S.T.A.R.S only but what the hell. We need all the help we can get.” Jill said. ______________________________________________________ “Jill, Jill! Where are you?” Chris shouted searching the hall where he had left her. The only answer was his voice echoing through the emptiness of the hall. He looked down at the sniper rifle that he had found in a room filled with guns. He ran his fingers through his black hair and glanced across the room again. “Who is that?” A male voice asked. Chris was hopeful that it was either Barry or Wesker. No chance. From behind the staircase a man with sandy brown hair spotted Chris. “Chris Redfield.” Chris said. “Johnny Cage.” The man said. “Have you seen a woman with brown hair and blue eyes around here?” Chris asked. “Nope, There is something up around here though. I just got pursued by an ugly bunch of creeps who tried to eat me! What's worse is that my friends are around here somewhere!” Johnny said concerned. “I met some of them. They seem to populate this place. I have some friends here too and they disappeared. Now I gotta find them.” Chris explained. “I suggest that we stick together so then if we run into more of those zombies we can help each other out.” Johnny said. “Good idea” Chris said. He passed a rifle to Johnny. “Take this, You will need it.” Chris warned. Johnny took the gun and grasped it as he followed Chris into another room. Little did any of them know that this was only the beginning of a lurking horror. CAN SONYA, CHRIS, JILL AND JOHNNY FIND THEIR FRIENDS, FIND EACH OTHER AND ESCAPE ALIVE? UNEXPECTED THINGS WILL HAPPEN AND THEIR LIVES WILL BE CHANGED FOREVER AS THEY EAGERLY TRY TO ESCAPE THE MANSION AND ITS INHABITANTS. TO BE CONTINUED….. Mortal Evil (part 2) She had disappeared. Instead of sticking with Jill she had boldly decided to go by herself. Now Sonya thought that it wasn’t such a wise decision. Halls twisted and turned. Minutes seemed Like hours, hours like days. Would she ever see nature, her friends or her family again. Or would their memories be buried with her 6 feet under in a lonely old cemetery. Was Johnny okay? Was he alive or was he just more food for the zombies. Sonya couldn’t bear to think of them eating her boyfriend alive. His yells emanating from deep in the room, the zombies moans of satisfaction as their teeth sunk into Johnny’s flesh. Blood oozing out slowly as he lost his battle with them. Sonya blinked and forced the thought from her mind. She had to be strong, optimistic and those thoughts didn’t help at all. She had found a door with an iron key protruding from the key hole. Sonya felt her heart pumping heavily and her grip on her gun tighten as she turned the key and opened the door. No signs of danger was visible. It was actually quite a friendly looking room with a long couch facing a T.V Stereo and video cabinet. Tapestry and other items were neatly placed on a nicely designed wooden coffee table. Red specks dotted the woolly white carpet. Fresh blood. Two boots lay hidden in a closet. Sonya opened the door and shrieked. Sitting motionless in ragdoll position was Kitana. Her neck had been ripped open showing muscle and neck vertebrae clearly. Her intestines had been torn out of a deep burrow in her lower stomach. Kitana's legs were lined with claw marks and loose tissue. A struggle had taken place before she died. Her brown eyes blankly stared at Sonya.A creature moved under Kitana’s thick black hair. It exposed itself bravely. Yellow Moon eyes glared at Sonya, Its ears listened attentively to every move that Sonya made. A mutated version of a shorthaired cat. Sleek black and blue fur covered its scrawny body. Its legs were long, muscular and athletic looking. Its tail hung limp, Basically because of the rotting wound in between its back and the top of its tail. Maggots writhed and squirmed in the dark red hole. It’s mouth formed into an angry snarl and its razor like claws shot out of its blood stained paws. Another one appeared with the same evil intent. They pounced with quick speed and intelligence, one landing straight onto her shoulder, The other on her abdomen. Sonya screamed both with fear and anger grasping the shoulder bound cat by its small body and flinging it to the ground. The cats were very strong for tiny frail figures. She hurled the other monster cat into the plaster wall with a loud bang. She arched her back in pain as both cats clawed onto her back, tearing her thin shirt as they clambered up to her neck. She felt a hand swipe the creatures to the floor and five rounds of ammunition used as the cats faced their death sequence with appeasement. She faced her savior to be asked if she was ok. Sonya nodded, shaken. He introduced himself as Chris Redfield. “I’m Sonya.” She answered feeling a little more calm. Chris noticed the corpse, shaking his head in disgust. Johnny had appeared suddenly in the doorway much to Sonya’s contentment. She fell in his arms sobbing quietly. “It was awful, Kitana. She died.” Sonya informed mildly. Johnny stroked Sonya’s hair and took time to look over at the closet. He screwed his nose up.He himself couldn’t believe it. Jill Valentine burst into the room scaring everyone. “Sonya! I heard something and Chris! Thank God your ok!” She exclaimed. She sighed in relief, pleased to know that both Chris and Sonya were safe and sound. She looked at Johnny with questioning eyes. “You must be Johnny. I’m Jill.” She said cautiously. “I sure am, Its nice to meet you Jill” Johnny answered. “Great, now that we all know each other, lets start looking for our friends.” Sonya said closing the closet door sadly. “Or what’s left of them” Johnny added. “We should split into two teams” Chris suggested holstering his gun. “It’d be best if you and Jill go together so you can continue your mission, Johnny and I will help by searching for clues.” Sonya announced speaking mainly to Chris. Johnny and Jill agreed instantly to the arrangement, Jill and Chris starting down one end of the hall, Sonya and Johnny proceeding down the other way. “Now I don’t think our original mission matters anymore.” Jill muttered solely to herself. Meanwhile…. A creature is being monitored in a lab separated from the mansion in a special life support tank. He is not quite a monster yet. He is still partially human, humane memories nearly completely wiped away from his mind. Next to him contained in a separate tank is a fully grown monster. He is much larger than the less mature one and could possibly inflict great damage on its enemies. Also in the lab, a shadowy figure paces back and forward with worry. His long lab coat trailed behind him. “What if the boss came in and found that most of the Tyrants were still undeveloped.” He thought to himself. Sure enough the boss would find out one way or another but he hoped it just wouldn’t be now. Who knows what boss and umbrella would do to him. They wouldn’t at all acknowledge his high profile statues as a black dragon member. They wouldn’t bother with his duties with their company. They would just kill him and twist the story to say that he did it himself. The black dragon was only known to people as a notorious gang but no one knew its even darker secret as a special division of umbrella, created for the assassination of spy’s whom posed a possible threat to their dangerous experiments with the deadly substance, The T virus. Umbrella had for years been testing on living things in attempts to create the worlds most deadly Biological weapon and now they had succeeded with the Tyrant. That’s why boss would be so mad. Because his masterpieces weren’t completed. The lab doors slowly swung open. The young woman smiled politely at Jarek before going to check the Tyrants life support monitors. “Morrigan, you shouldn’t be here!” Jarek warned. She frowned in disapproval and fiddled with her chocolate brown ponytail with her emerald green eyes fixed on her old black dragon partner. “The house is now filled with zombies” She announced angrily. She put her hand on her thin waist. “The hazard. Stupid Umbrella bastards. The virus incident was an unfortunate event.” Jarek said looking over all of the creatures in sheer disgust that the corporation would be willing enough to continue their tests after the accident. “The STARS are here. It won’t be long until all of them meet their fate.” Morrigan informed. Jarek cursed slamming his fist into the wall. “We were supposed to prevent that from happening. I have to go and help them!” Jarek said dashing out of the lab. “Jarek!” Morrigan called after him. “Two years ago you wouldn’t have cared.” Morrigan sighed. A dining room. The table could have been owned by a king, It was huge. Jill pulled her attention away from an old fashioned radio to look over to her partner. “Jill, You shouldn’t be perving on your partner” She laughed to herself. Jill was ripped out of her thoughts when he turned and looked at her. Her eyes darted to the floor and she turned back to the radio. She felt uneasy as she sensed her partner approach her. “I was afraid that you were going to die” Chris said touching her shoulder. “I didn’t. Now you don’t have to worry” Jill muttered. She realized that she had been rude and turned to Chris. “I’m sorry. This house is big and creepy and I want to get out” she said. Chris nodded. “So do I.” She noticed that he was actually getting closer to her. She was shocked when he passionately kissed her. He stopped. “I’m sorry, have I done the right thing?” He asked. “I think so.” Jill stuttered. He kissed her again, longer. She closed her eyes and grasped his neck. He reached up and slowly removed her beret from her head allowing her honey brown hair to fall to her shoulders. He started on her neck when Jill told him politely to stop. “I think we should get on with our mission.” She said smiling. Chris nodded in agreement. Johnny saw the figure dart past him. “Sonya, I saw something. I’m going to check it out” He told his girlfriend. Sonya gave him a careful look and continued to examine the strange acid substance eating a hole through the wooden floorboards. Johnny snuck through the corridor, getting closer to the mysterious figure. A male voice yelled out derogatory threats and curses. “Liu!” Johnny yelled running down the hall and meeting up with a dead end where several zombies circled Liu. Liu didn’t have a weapon and relied on his fighting skills to battle the zombies. It was useless. Johnny flinched as he heard flesh tear and Liu's arm grossly rip off and drop to the ground. Blood splashed on the walls as this occurred. Another zombie held Liu in place and bit chunks from his neck. Liu's eyes widened in horror, blood dripped from his open mouth as he collapsed to the ground lifeless. Red fluid splashed everywhere as the zombies mercilessly ate their victim.Johnny fired at the zombies, backed up by Sonya whom had rushed in just in time to see the carnage take place. As the zombies perished, Sonya looked away from her mutilated friend. Another was gone. A few minutes later... Johnny turned the handle on the door. It was stuck and refused to budge.He powerfully kicked the door open causing it to burst open. Inside the room a man stood looking rather lost. “Hey!” Sonya exclaimed catching his attention. “Who are you?” The man asked. “I’m Sonya and this is Johnny” She answered. “I’m Richard” He answered. “We met Jill and Chris from alpha. They are looking for bravo.” Johnny informed. “Tell them not to bother” Richard said. Sonya was shocked at his rudeness. “Look only Rebecca Chambers and myself remain. Theres no sense looking for Bravo. Only two of us are still alive. Rebecca is hiding in an attic. Help her and leave me.” Richard ordered. Sonya and Johnny refused to let him die and stubbornly backed Richard up as he entered the next room. “Everyone else was killed by the zombies” Richard said looking around the shed. Pitch forks and other equipment were stored in various wooden boxes.Empty cans and bottles were stored on a rickety old shelf in the corner. Sonya glanced over to the far end of the room and noticed the floorboards lift slightly. “Oh shit.” She thought. “What did that?” Suddenly a huge creature burst through the wooden walls, Its scaly green skin glistened, Its evil eyes glared at the human trio. It opened its mouth and hissed. Venom dripped from long fangs. Sonya eyed the creature with fear and amazement. A monstrous snake. Sonya and Johnny backed up against the wall. It struck at Richard, biting the top half of his body. His legs wriggled frantically as he tried to escape the beast.The snake threw its head back, completely swallowing Richard.It turned to Sonya and Johnny. It snapped, barely missing Johnny’s head. Sonya shot it but the bullets didn’t effect it much. She gasped as she realized that she was out of ammo. Johnny fired the rifle, The 8 foot snake hissing its protest. Sonya grasped a large axe and hurled it at the creature. It pierced its heart and blood shot out in all directions as it slumped to the ground. It began to decompose before their very eyes, melting into a smelly pile. Sonya crept over to the large hole that the snake had created. “This leads outside!” She exclaimed. Dark gloomy trees hung over a dead garden. “We should go and find Jill and Chris” Sonya said. “I’ll go find Rebecca.” Johnny said HAVE JOHNNY AND SONYA FOUND A WAY OUT OF THE HELLHOUSE? MORE SECRETS WILL UNVEIL IN PART 3 OF MORTAL EVIL. Mortal Evil (Part 3) She ran furiously through the corridors. Her leather boots knocked against the varnished wood. She had to find Jarek before he made a big mistake. She knew what boss and Umbrella would do if he interfered and it would not be pretty. “Jarek! You’ll be in serious trouble if you…Woah!!” Morrigan felt her foot catch under a loose piece of wood. She collapsed, knocking her head on a large, really ugly limestone statue. She rubbed her forehead and groaned in pain. Her head throbbed wildly as she clumsily pulled herself up. Jarek appeared, watching Morrigan with disapproval. “Quit following me Morrigan. You have no idea what Wesker is going to do to them.” Jarek shouted. “It’s boss not Wesker and I do know what he wants to do to them. Look, I don’t know why you care so much.” Morrigan answered losing her temper and flailing her arms in a rage. “I don’t know why he cares either” Sonya intervened leaning against the door with her arms crossed. She had heard all of the commotion. Jarek and Morrigan turned and faced the special forces agent with surprise. “Sonya Blade! Well, who’d have thought that you’d turn up.” Jarek sneered. Sonya balled up her fist, trying to contain her anger. “Why do you want the STARS? Are you going to kill them the way Kano visciously gunned down my boyfriend!” She growled narrowing her eyes. “No I’m not going to do that. Kano had his reasons to kill Jake.” Jarek said. “Reasons, What reason is there to kill a man.” Sonya snapped. “Have you ever heard of Umbrella?” Morrigan question causing Sonya to gasp. They were a big bio chemical and pharmaceutical industry. They were really quite mysterious but were always trusted with their experiments. What has the Black dragon got to do with Umbrella though? “The Black dragon is actually a division of Umbrella. You see for quite sometime now Umbrella had been trying to create the worlds ultimate bio weapon. They created a chemical called the T Virus and started on dangerous experiments. Black Dragon was formed as an assassination division. Umbrella knew of many spies wanting to foil their plans and tell the world about their experiments. Jake was one of those spies. They sent the black dragon to kill him and succeeded.” Jarek explained. “So Jake was some sort of spy. I can’t believe that Black Dragon is actually a division of Umbrella.” Sonya gasped. Morrigan stepped forward and grinned maliciously. “He could have foiled Umbrella’s plans so easily. Being with the Special Forces and all.”She said. “You guys hunted me down. Did you really think that Kano would beat me in the Mortal Kombat Tournament” Sonya said. Morrigan pulled an Uzi from under her shirt and held it at Sonya. “I think we’ve told you enough.It’s our policy to get rid of the ones that know too much. Bye Sonya. It was nice talking to you” She gleamed. “Morrigan, No, wait!” Jarek exclaimed. Morrigan was thrown forward as a human figure knocked her to the ground and stabbed her in back with a long shiny combat knife.Morrigan screeched in agony as blood poured from her thin lips. She could taste the warm metallic fluid in her mouth. With her last ounce of strength she lifted her arm and she pulled the guns trigger. The bullet traveled like lightning and Jarek jolted back into the plaster wall as the bullet embedded itself in his ankle. He clutched his ankle as his blood flowed out through his fingers. Jill, who had been responsible for both killing Morrigan and saving Sonya’s life, rushed over to attend Jarek. She was followed by a worried Chris and Sonya. ”You wanted to help the STARS. Why was that so?” Sonya asked. “I knew what was going to happen to them and I wanted to stop it.” He gasped in sheer pain as his wound leaked ferociously. “The T virus project is a crime. The Black Dragon killed my cousin Maria because she had found out about their plan. They’ll do anything to prevent it from going public. I joined the Black Dragon in a hope that one day I could stop them.” He explained. Sonya frowned sympathetically. “I’m sorry about Maria” She said. Jarek flinched and nodded. “Be careful. You must stop Umbrella.” Jarek warned. Sonya faced Jill and Chris whom had overheard the whole conversation. “Johnny and I found a way out. We also found a bravo member” Sonya announced. Jill’s eyes lightened up in happiness. “Where is he?” She asked. Sonya kicked the floor nervously informing her that the bravo member was indeed dead. “He told me that only one bravo member remains and Johnny has gone to find her.” Sonya said. Jill couldn’t believe that only one remained. “Leave me here. get out and let the public know about Umbrella” Jarek said reaching over and taking Morrigans gun from her limp hand. Sonya nodded and the three rushed away to find the exit. Sonya closed her eyes and sighed sadly as a loud gunshot rang out through the hall. Jarek had departed.
Huddled in a corner. Nothing was visible in the jet black darkness. The only light was from the moon shining in a distant window and even that wasn’t sufficient enough to see what was contained in the attic. Rebecca felt something crawl slowly across her shaking hands and she swiftly flicked it off. Her well kept auburn hair was shortly cropped. A red band was tied across her forehead. Rebecca had applied for the job as bravo’s medical while still at college. Since she was only 18, Richard had told her to hide in the attic until someone found her. She had obeyed but was now feeling restless. What if no one ever found her. She stood on her feet and approached the double doors. Boldly opening them she was suddenly confronted by a young man that she had never seen before. “Are you Rebecca?” He asked. Rebecca nodded suspiciously. “I’m Johnny Cage. I’ve come to help you.” He answered hoping to gain Rebecca’s trust. “Richard told me to find you.” Rebecca backed away slightly. “Where is he?” Johnny shook his head. “He’s dead. He told me to find you. Listen, my girlfriend and I found a way out of here. Come, follow me.” He said. Rebecca actually smiled and nodded willingly, sensing that Johnny was someone who could be trusted. She winced, trying to adjust to the light after hours of being cramped up in the attic. SCRRREEEETCHHH!! A creature flew through the air and landed in front of the pair. It pinned Rebecca to the ground and then lunged at Johnny. Its green skin was scaly and rough. Its long snout had thousands of teeth capable to bite someone’s head straight off. It’s well shaped and muscular legs were covered in stringy skin and loose muscle hung from them. Long nails coated in blood from previous kills shot out from its finger tips. Johnny pulled out his rifle and blasted the creature before it could land on him. The bullets caused the beast to fly back but he was barely affected by it. He was just angrier. “Oh No, A hunter!” Rebecca yelled. She had an equipment bag tied around her slim waist. She hurriedly opened it and revealed a vial contained a clear bubbly substance. As the creature ditched Johnny and attempted to attack She ripped the lid from the vial. “Game over asshole!” She screamed and mercilessly threw the liquid all over the hunter. It screeched and screamed as the substance began to eat through its skin. The hunters muscle tissue and organs melted away. Soon it collapsed as a bubbly, hissing skeleton. A small fraction of the acid continued to eat through the floorboards. Rebecca hurled the empty vial into a wall aggressively. The glass shattered. “Lets go, The hunters will be tracking us down. That’s what they do. We must hurry.” She warned. “Follow me.” Johnny said as they dashed down the stairs. 30 minutes later… Getting back to the exit was not an easy task. Hunters and zombies were every where in the mansion, Clawing them frantically wanting flesh and warm blood to feed on. Jill, Chris and Sonya had beaten Johnny and Rebecca to the exit. The night air was freezing, blowing through the gap and onto Sonya’s bare legs. Jill and Chris couldn’t feel the cold as much as Sonya since they both had long pants on. Rebecca and Johnny appeared and Jill was the first to walk up and welcome Rebecca to the team, introducing Chris and Sonya in her long hyped up sentence. Rebecca smiled at the alpha politely, feeling much more comfortable now that she knew them. Sonya poked her head through the hole. The moon was half covered in dark clouds and once beautiful white roses in the garden were now drooping. Tall walls barricaded the garden and an elevator led down under the ground. “It looks safe.” Sonya announced dropping to her hands and knees and crawling through the hole."Okay” Sonya said once she was out side. Her four friends followed and soon they found themselves enclosed in a circular garden. A paper was stuck to the wall. Johnny ripped it off and examined it, Sonya looked over his shoulder. “There’s a heliport! We have to go down that elevator and through some under ground passages. It’s not precise on where the port actually is but it says down here that a helicopter is always waiting there.” Johnny informed. “Chris is a qualified pilot. I suggest we find this heliport and get out of here before its too late.” Jill said. Johnny pocketed the map and glanced over at the elevator. It was time to get out….. TO BE CONTINUED
The lift was too small for everyone to go down into the dank darkness. Jill had jumped at the opportunity to go down check the place out and to see if it was safe. She had sighed and cursed to herself though when Johnny had offered to go down with her. Did he think that she couldn’t do things by herself? It was her mission and having Johnny go down to protect her…. She felt as if she was 12 years old. The lift was a tiny rectangular platform that could barely move on its rusty gears as it carried the pair away from their friends. Jill stared up, Watching them stare back at her with monumental uncertainty as they sunk into the darkness . Jill could understand their cause for concern. It appeared hostile down there and if anything happened, the rest of the group wouldn’t be able to jump down the horribly steep shaft to help them. It was no doubt that she was feeling a little diffident herself but she never let it burrow into her self control. If she had a job, She would do it. No questions asked. Johnny had his back turned away from the alpha, obviously involved in his own train of thought. Jill wasn’t really sure what to think of him. He seemed like the egotistical type though Jill couldn’t really judge a man that she had only known for a few hours. She just couldn’t understand why he had offered to help her, He had no military training what so ever and he could barely use the sniper rifle that was tucked in his belt as a holster. At least he had brought Rebecca Chambers back to them. The lift jolted to a sudden and rough stop and Johnny had shoved past Jill, treading onto the gravel. He had knocked her shoulder, jolting her forward and causing her to lour in sheer anger. “Patience is a virtue. Patience IS a virtue” She repeated to herself stepping onto the tiny moist rocks. Jill stormed by him ignorantly . Why so hostile. What the hell did Sonya see in the stupid mongrel any way. “You won’t make a good STARS member if you just rush into an unknown territory like that.” Jill warned. “I’m not a STARS am I” Johnny answered. Jill had just enough of this. “Look I’m just sick to death of this, at least-“ She stopped midsentence as the smell of decay wafted over her and a couple of dogs lunged out, snapping and drooling. Their eyes glowed crimson as they sprinted towards them. Jill’s hand shook as she pulled the trigger on her Beretta hand gun, two bullets gliding out and into the dogs skinless heads. They moaned their protest as their blood enveloped them and ran through the ash gravel cracks “You must always stay alert, hold onto the rifle because you don’t know when an unexpected surprise will crash out. You won’t have time to unholster your gun, okay.” Jill said. “Now come, I see a door up ahead.” The door lead into a guard house. Extra rooms for certain scientists were all lined up. Johnny didn’t think much of it. Bare wooden walls had little weeds poking through. An ugly gargoyle statue sat in the corner, its dull eyes watching the pair. “What do you say, check if this place is safe first or go up and call them now?” Johnny questioned. “Well, It would be good if I just look around, secure this place and you go and call them down. If you don’t mind. Then we can get two jobs done at once” Jill suggested. Johnny nodded, rushing out to fetch the others. Jill had a strange feeling of hostile fear in her throat as she spotted the red, fancy looking door at the end of the corridor. She grasped the long copper door handle and slowly opened up the stiff door. It creaked as it opened. Jill bit her bottom lip as her boots made the wooden floor boards creak. It looked like some sort of bar or diner with dishes and bottles lined up on a shelf behind the desk. A pool table, and a video game machine were lined against the wall, gathering dust like everything else. She tucked a strand of loose hair behind her ear and frowned as she noticed that the back walls were enveloped in spiders web. Oh my god, why does the web look so big? There has to be a million and one spiders in here. Because she was partially arachnophobic , The thought of them made her involuntarily shudder. But what can a bunch of measly little spiders do to her, Then again, she thought of that movie. But it WAS only a movie. What about giant spiders? Now Jill realized that she had to stop worrying and get focused on the mission again.An excessive amount of web sat in a corner, drawing Jill closer to see why there was so much of it in that area. She soon discovered why. Barry. Cacooned inside the web was the Alpha, his face distorted and frozen in a look of horror. He looked as though he had a hell of a time trying to escape the sticky mesh. Jill shook her head sadly, thinking about the family that he had at home. Why did this have to happen? “If only you had stayed with us Barry” she stared in disbelief at the incongruent, not noticing spiny long legs and beady eyes spying on her hungrily. “Kathump!!” Jill spun away from the grotesque figure and screeched in horror as she saw the thing staring up at her with millions of shiny black eyes. Its long, hairy legs tensed up to pounce on her and punish her to the same fate as Barry.The monstrous spider hissed furiously through deadly fangs. “You asshole” She growled retreating from the monster and backing straight into the spider web. She writhed about trying to get out of the web. No luck. “Arg, Stupid, stupid” She cursed herself angrily. She screamed again as she felt the spiders hot breath, a drop of venom falling from its fangs and landing on her boots, burning a hole through it. She could hear the sizzle of the acid burning. Suddenly one of the spiders legs blasted off with a loud bang. It screamed in agony and turned to face the interrupter. “Johnny!” Jill screeched, her voice containing a mixture of hope and fear. Jill did not know where Johnny had gotten that bazooka but she didn’t care, all she could do was pray that he would kill the evil bastard. As she watched the spider blow and its guts rain throughout the room, something crashed through the wall, twining around Jill’s slender waist and drag her back towards it. Oh god no. It appeared to be a monstrous plant. Vines hung from its horrific bulb, attached to the leafy roof. It was crushing her ribcage. She felt a twinge of pain and gasped, feeling the plant slowly extract blood from her through adaptions. More vines wrapped around her, forcing her to stop kicking. All she could do was scream for help. “Jill, hold on!” Rebecca exclaimed vaulting herself through the hole with a gigantic Flame thrower in her hand. “Hurry! “ Jill said, her face the look of unbearable pain. Rebecca hauled the trigger and a marvelous line of dancing flames poured out, directly onto the plant. It hurled Jill to the ground and reached for Rebecca in a desperate attempt to stop the intense heat from hitting it. Rebecca jumped back agilely and continued the shots. Soon the plant gave up, melting into a purple goo on the oriental mat. Rebecca dropped the gun, rushing over to Jill. “Are you okay, holy shit. What was that?” Jill shook her head. “ I don’t know. Thank you Rebecca. You saved me from being plant food.” Jill whispered feeling weak and dizzy. “It’s all a part of the job” Rebecca forced a smile, reaching her hand out for Jill to pull herself up. Sonya, Johnny and Chris rushed through to join them. “Man, Johnny. I owe it too you.” Jill sighed. “What do you owe?” Johnny grinned. “If you hadn’t gone to get everyone, I would’ve been a goner” Jill answered. Rebecca had handed the gun to Chris and was now examining the crumpled map. A look of disappointment washed on her face. “What Rebecca?” Sonya asked striding towards the young teen. “We are definently on the wrong track, no questions asked. We have to get out of the guardhouse” She sighed. “The map states that there is an underground passage outside. It leads straight to the umbrella labs.” Chris nodded taking in the information attentively. “Lets go” You could probably say that it was freezing. The group had climbed down a ladder and into a dank underground. Sonya tried to adjust to the darkness of the cave to no use. It was simply too dark. A tiny light flashed and flickered illuminously, coming from Rebecca. “This torch is almost out but hopefully it will last us a little while.” “Thank god for Becca” Johnny sighed placing a warm hand on her back before advancing next to Sonya. Rebecca smiled, pleased that they were accepting her as a team mate and not just a kid tagging along. Jill was still holding onto a small few wounds on her side , It was painful but she’d survive. “You ok?” Chris asked, concern painted on his face for the fellow Alpha. Jill nodded, looking at Chris and keeping an expressionless face so he had no need to worry. He grasped her hand gently and leaned over to whisper in her ear. “Just stay with me, you’ll be fine” Jill felt a blush creep up on her and she once again felt like a helpless child. Albert Wesker perched in his office seat, staring out the misty window and up at the cold moonless sky. He thought about the S.T.A.R.S. He wondered how many others had perished just like Joseph and Kenneth. It had become common knowledge in the past few hours that there were now two extra to dispose of. A young man and woman, both very athletic looking. He had seen the man rescue the new girl Chambers and the woman take care of the S.T.A.R.S mission very well, befriending Chris and Jill. Kicking zombie ass. He knew that now he had more in his hands than just a few billion dollars and a mission to complete. He had five very pesky people to dispose of. That made him mad. Umbrella had said that killing the S.T.A.R.S and covering up the T virus spill was going to be quite a job but he didn’t know this was going to happen. Now things were really out of joint. So many unexpected things had happened. Bravo’s crash, Brad leaving without them. He stared into the thousands of surveillance cameras lined up on the wall. He had watched the group through the security cameras, pining for one of the to drop on their knees and die. To no avail, He was getting frustrated. All he had learned was that Rebecca was quite good at dealing with the hunters. Still fuming he thought again. At least the money was good. And he had exactly the right person in mind. The one to battle the worlds most powerful biological weapon. Tyrant. What was her name again. Tonya? Finally, a door. They had split into two groups after finding that the passage intersected into two paths. Jill and Chris had gone right. Rebecca, Sonya and Johnny had opted on left. Jill and Chris had chosen the darker path, Sonya thought of them as quite intrepid for doing so. Johnny winced as the door screeched, dragging along the rock. Sonya and Rebecca covered their ears in disgust. It was a horrible, high pitched sound. All that was there was a large boulder and more moldy rocks. Sonya was really starting to get sick of green. It was stinky and it wafted everywhere. A sickly smell. Johnny frowned, "I’ll go over to the other side, try and find Jill and Chris. They could’ve found something” Sonya glanced over at Rebecca and smiled half heartedly. “ I’m going to look around in here” She announced. Sonya strode straight over to the boulder, It was bigger than her. Sonya shrugged. Nothing interesting. She started back to Rebecca when a loud shuffling noise came from behind her. The rock was moving! Oh shit! She exclaimed sprinting as fast as her legs could take her back to the doorway. Rebecca reached in, grasping Sonya’s arm instinctively and yanking her out. The boulder rushing past, only centimeters away from her feet. “You ok?” Rebecca asked. Sonya gasped, shaking her head. “Yeah, I think so” Rebecca glanced in and noticed an elevator that was formerly hidden behind the boulder. The rock was a trap. To try and stop them from getting to the lab. Rebecca unraveled the map and asked Sonya to hold it. She slowly swiped the torch to their position. The orange light bouncing off of their faces. “Sonya, I think we’ve found the lab!” “You're kidding!” Just as the pair exchanged joyful grins, Johnny, Chris and Jill appeared. “What did you two Cheshire cats find?” Chris asked jokingly. Rebecca felt like dancing, They were so close to the heliport now. All they had to do was walk through the labs and find it. It couldn’t have been any more easier. “We found the elevator that leads up to the labs Chris!” She shrieked happily. Jill grinned, She felt just as relieved as the bravo. “Well we better get going then!” Chris said.
