Prologue: What It Felt Like
The stench of rotting flesh cut through the air like a knife, making the
dense cold air of the city, even eerier than it already was. But even ascold
as it was, the cold wasn't what sent chills up and down my spine, the screaming
and painful groaning that echoed through the city is what frightened me.
The groans that came from the souls of the undead that roamedthe city.
The mindless spirits of cannibalistic undead flesh eating creatures, that
terrorized the survivors that still lived, separate gunshots could be heard
far off into the city, right before the tight scream that could be heard
with the ripping of human skin at the teeth of those hideous creatures.
The U.B.C.S, and surviving members of the S.T.A.R.S unit had been dispatched
into the city, trying to destroy the creatures that roamed free, but many
had failed and I believed many more would.
Maybe I was the only one who would survive. Maybe not, maybe I'd be left
alone as a meal for the cannibals just like the others, or maybe I'd meet
someone who could help. But whichever way it may have went I was ready
to follow that path, whether down the dark or the light no matter which.
I had to follow it, because I'm not one of those monsters and I don't want
to be. I'm getting out of this city. My name is Alice and welcome to everyone's
Chapter 1: Awaking To A Nightmare
When I awoke, somewhere around nine o'clock P.M I strongly smelled smoke,
the kind of smoke that makes your eyes water, I quickly opened my eyes
and looked around me, my home was on fire, the smell of burned cedar cabinets,
and clothing in piles of ashes quickly alerted me into a state of fright
and distraught. I escaped the house as fast as possible, dodging falling
debris and lava like flames. Before I left through the backdoor of my apartment,
I grabbed my pistol and headed out into the dark alley behind my house.
The flames of the burning house where the only thing that lit the dark
streets, the moon was covered in dark granite colored clouds, making the
light reflect through them, with a bright white, giving only the sky a
gleaming light. I rushed away from the apartment building hoping that there
wouldn't be an explosion of heat hitting the gas heater. As I ran away,
not looking back, I heard the sound of breaking glass. I knew the building
was exploding, I ran farther hoping to run far from the flames. I found
a safe place, a few yards away from the building, and watched as it collapsed.
My fatigued body fell to the ground and I fell to sleep.
I was startled as someone grabbed me and pulled me running towards an old
abandoned warehouse. My eyes where still closed but I was awake, I heard
him yell out. "Get Away, before I cap ya!" I opened my eyes and
saw that we where being chased by slow moving people, at least twenty of
them. I didn't know why he was running so fast, as slow as they where moving,
and none of them where armed. We got to the warehouse; he opened the door
and quickly pushed me in as he stood at the door shooting at the people.
I stood inside watching him as he shot at least three clips of his machine
gun. As the people started getting closer he slammed the door and locked
it. I stood there as he walked by me calmly; I followed him with my eyes,
being alert the whole time. "Who are you?" I asked him. He ignored
me the first time as he sat down, on a row of steps, and sat his gun down,
next to him. "Who are you?" I asked him again. Again he
ignored me, I walked over to him and bent down to his level, looking him
straight in the eyes. "If you weren't going to talk, then why did
you drag me in here?" The room was silent as I continued speaking.
"Who are you, and what's going on around here, I'm laying at home,
wake up to a burning bed, then you come around and pull me to this forsaken
place, being chased by what seemed to be cracked up people.
He looked back at me and spoke in a calm, deep almost
sarcastic voice. "You know. If you'd stop talking long enough maybe
I'd get the chance to." I looked at him with disgust, and he continued
talking. "Umbrella aren't the people they say they are. Healthcare
products. Bull Hock! What they're doing is what I call massacre, those
people you saw out there, are why I've got a job. Working for the Umbrella
Biohazard Countermeasure Service. Those cannibalistic freaks, aren't human,
I say their some sort of evil. Those are the people you meet in the grocery
stores, or accidentally bump into at the movies. But Umbrella has changed
them." I interrupted him. "What are you talking about?"
I asked him. "How does Umbrella have something to do with those crazed
maniacs?" He replied to me, as he stood up and walked around
the warehouse. "Well, it's kinda' hard to explain. You see, when someone
dies, they still hold energy in their body, so while you're dead, the whole
time you lay there, you are still growing, well, Umbrella has found a way
to neutralize that energy and bring the dead back to life, they have released
a 'Virus' into the city to not only bring back the dead, but to make new
undead." I stood silent, at what I heard, because it startled me,
I didn't know what to say due to the audacity of it, I finally decided
to speak after I let it sink in. "So you're saying that those people
out there are dead?" He turned around to look away from me, and he
replied. "Yep." There was a long silence and I again broke it.
"So, I know you work for, Umbrella.but who are you?" He turned
around and looked at me, as he answered. "My name is Jack Feniks.Who
are you?" he continued. "I am Alice.And I too work for umbrella,
or I guess you could say I used to. I don't expect I'll be getting a paycheck
for a long, long time." Jack grinned at me and agreed, with the nod
of his head.
We sat on the steps in the warehouse, talking about
the U.B.C.S plan, as he cleaned his gun. "We need to get out of here.
Do you have a weapon?" He asked. "Yes. I have a pistol."
I replied. Jack searched me up and down with his eyes, and then he walked
around me, still searching. "I don't see one." He replied with
a grin on his face. "I keep my gun somewhere no one will look."
I said. "I'd look." He replied, as he walked over to the door
opposite the one we entered. "Are you ready?" He asked me. I
nodded my head in reply. He peeked out the door cautiously, looking around
in the thin alleyway; he motioned with his hand for me to come. We left
the warehouse and I followed him though the city. The sun was beginning
to rise and yet the clouds still blocked out the sky's red tint, but the
city streets still seemed red as blood, as we walked down the street, we
passed many dead bodies and patches of blood where the dead once laid,
wondering where they where now. The city was a giant pit of destruction,
every car in the city totaled at every corner, the broken windows to the
shopping areas and second hand department stores, added a certain air to
the city, allowing the wind to blow through the buildings making a strange
sound. Inside the buildings they where dark, even though they all seemed
abandoned, I know they weren't due to the grunting and groaning coming
from the inside of them.
We walked deeper into the city searching for survivors,
and found none, when we reached the central square we where attacked by
about thirty of the monsters, Jack and I could see the monsters coming
toward us, busting out of shop windows and doors, as well as from cars,
and some where just crawling around on the ground, but we where surrounded,
and I thought we were hopeless. "Get your gun out and start firing!"
Jack yelled. I backed up to his back and him to me. I pulled out my gun
and we both started shooting at anything that moved. They started closing
in on us as we downed about ten of them, I was out of ammo but Jack was
still firing. As they approached closer I started to kick the ones going
after my feet, away from me. The ones standing where still coming after
us, some of them tripping over the ones on the ground. "Alice.I'm
out of ammo!" Jack yelled, trying to throw his voice over the sound
of the grunting of the "zombies". We were both out of ammo and
the creatures were pushing us back to back. Just as the zombies got into
touching range of us, an outburst of machine guns fired at them, making
them flinch and fall to the ground into pools of blood. Neither Jack nor
I knew what was going on, because Jack was the only one of us with a machine
gun and he was out of clips.
Chapter 2: The Unexpected Allies
We looked around for an answer, the sky was still dark
and it was starting to rain slightly, through the darkness and the sprinkling
rain, I could see a flash light, My eyes where flickering from the hardening
rain hitting them, but I could tell that whoever that was, they where there
to save us. I looked at Jack and he didn't seem as exited, and as a matter
of fact he seemed worried, as though the ones that saved us where out to
kill us. Jack added to the sound of the falling rain. "Alice we need
to run." I looked at him confusingly, and he said it again this time
a little louder. 'Alice.Run!" I didn't know why he said that, but
we began to run away from the ones that helped us. I looked behind us and
found them running after us, but they were not firing their guns, I was
again confused and lost, not knowing why we where running or who they where.
As we were running we approached a porch with a cover, we hid in the shadows
of the porch while we awaited the arrival of the ones following us. When
they arrived at the street we were on we could see them and the outfits
they where wearing - The uniforms where almost identical to Jack's, and
even had the red and white Umbrella symbol on the right lapel, just like
his, but these soldiers wore a biohazard mask along with the rest of the
ensemble - I looked at Jack in the darkness and asked him what he knew
was going to be asked. "Why are we running from them if you work for
them?" I whispered. Jack remained quite and didn't answer.
As we sat there we could here them speaking to each
other. "Sir. I'm using the Thermal to look for them but so far I see
nothing." One of the others who seemed like the leader of the group
replied to the other. "Well keep looking, we'll find them, because
we have to find out if their contaminated." The other replied. "Yes
Sir!" We sat there hoping that they wouldn't notice us; Jack still
sat silently, like he knew it was over for us. I sat looking outward toward
the street, watching every movement they made, hoping that they wouldn't
come over that way. I kept watching cautiously. "Sir, There they are!"
one of them said. "They've noticed us I replied quickly, as I turned
around and looked at Jack. Jack grabbed my hand and pulled me again. After
a few seconds of running I felt a prick in my neck, and I fainted a few
When I woke up I was in a bright white room underneath
a bright light, I was still in pain from the fall, and I didn't really
have the power to move. But as my eyes opened wider I lifted up my head
and saw that I was I strapped down to a metal table, with leather straps.
I didn't have the energy to escape, so I lay there and screamed for help.
I rose up again and looked for Jack but I couldn't find him, I was the
only person in the room and it was cold and lonely. After a few minutes
of looking around the large metal door opened and someone in a white doctors
outfit, came in. I yelled at him. "Leave me alone! Who are you?"
He started releasing me from the table. "What are you doing?"
I asked him in a loud voice. "Shut up. Alice, it's me." He replied.
I looked at him and my eyes widened. "Jack?" I asked. "Yeah.
Shhh. Don't say any thing." He replied. "He went and got my clothes,
and I changed out of my, hospital robe, and put my normal clothes on, while
he waited outside. "Are you done?" He asked. "Yes."
I replied as I walked out of the door. I looked around the dark hallway,
and found about ten bodies on the floor. "Jack what happened?"
I asked him. "I don't know." He replied. "I came up here,
and I was going to try and trick them into letting me in but they where
already dead, they took our guns away before we fainted, so, I didn't do
We walked back up to where Jack had switched clothes,
and he put his uniform back on. We had decided that our next step would
be to look for our guns; we searched through the whole building until we
finally got to the armory. There we found our guns, and no others, seeing
that ours where the only ones in the whole armory we where suspicious,
we picked them up and left the room. When we got out the door, they where
waiting for us; the three that where chasing us earlier. "Hold it!"
The main man yelled. "Come with us, your going to need some ammo,
for those." he continued in a calmer voice. Jack still seemed iffy
at the concept of it, as if it where a trap. But I believed differently.
We followed them, into a hidden room, behind a tall gray wall with the
Umbrella symbol on it. When I saw the symbol, I began to think as Jack
had been, because of the recent history of it, now I was suspicious.
We followed them into the room, and sat down in black leather chairs; the
room was well furnished and resembled an office, it had a desk and all
of the other things that make an office. We sat there and the soldiers
informed us of what they where up to. The main guy started speaking as
he and the others took their masks off. " Our intentions weren't to
harm you, they where to help you." Jack stood up and interrupted him.
"What do you mean, to me that's a bucket of- - -" one of the
other soldiers, a female, interrupted him. "You should be glad we
got you off the streets, because if we hadn't, you would have become just
like the others." The other soldier spoke in a silent voice. "Yeah,
you should be thanking us. After all, we did save your life."
I stood up and walked over to the captain of the group.
"Who are you and what's going on here, and why did you save us?"
I asked him. "We are all members of Umbrellas Biohazard Countermeasure
Service, just like Feniks here, and we saved you because we didn't want
more undead creatures to deal with first of all, and second of all we couldn't
just sit there and let you die." He replied. "That answers two
of my questions, now for the other." I said. "Well, our company.
Umbrella was 'testing' their new 't-virus' on the city." He replied.
"They where using the city as their testing ground!" Jack asked.
"You could put it that way." The captain replied. "But I
believe that they knew what was going to happen, the only civilians that
haven't died are the ones in the holding room, but most of them are crooks."
He continued. "I'll take you there." We followed him again, now
with a little more trust. While we where walking down the hallway, the
dead bodies we saw in the upper level, where walking now. The three UBCS
members, where the only ones firing seeing that Jack and I had no bullets.
The zombies got within about four feet of us and they fell to the floor.
We walked farther down the hallway and we came to a room, with large tanks
in it. We kept walking but the UBCS members were very cautious about their
movements. Jack and I peered into the tanks, as the others informed us
that the tanks held prototype experiments for Umbrella's T-virus, with
the virus being injected directly into a human' s nervous system.
When we got to the other side of that room, there was
another large door, with a keypad that had to be unlocked. "Feniks.
Come here, you're good at unlocking high-tech defense systems get over
here and un-lock this door." The Captain said. Jack walked up to the
door and he too, couldn't un-lock it. After Jack and the others tried,
I used my skill and tried, I walked up to the door and easily unlocked
it with an old bent paperclip. "You're good." Jack said, as if
he where astonished. "I know." I replied. The captain walked
in first and motioned for us to follow, so we did. When we got inside,
the door closed behind us, and air locked. We looked around and there where
a lot of holding cells for criminals, and rouge civilians, rebelling against
Umbrella. One cell was opened, and there was no one in it. "What happened
to the person that was in here?" I asked. "No telling."
The UBCS Girl replied. As she was speaking, I saw through the corner of
my eye, a revolver press against the captain's neck, and he was put into
a headlock, with the revolver pressed against his cheek. My eyes followed
the attackers body, up to his head. "Hey! I f you all participate,
I'll let your partner go." He said. Jack replied by coming up behind
him and tackling him down. The gun was dropped and fired at the ceiling,
the lights went out, and I couldn't see.
While the lights where out I could here the sound of
powerful punches to the gut, along with moans of pain. After a few minutes
the Captain found a light, and we saw that Jack had knocked the attacker
out. "This man is crazed!" Jack Replied." We'll take him
with us and keep an eye on him. Jack put him in a fireman's carry and carried
him out of the room, with me close behind. After we left the room, the
captain and the other two, decided to stay and observe the other cell holders.
So Jack and I walked out of the room and waited for them to finish. We
sat outside of the room and waited for them to come out. After about five
minutes, the door locked shut again, and we tried to get in but we couldn't,
it was tightly locked, and they couldn't get out. On the inside a few tanks
like the ones we saw earlier, where lowered into the room and they opened.
Monsters much unlike the ones we had been seeing, where popping out and
walking around the ceiling and walls, some looked like large frogs with
no eyes and a much bigger mouth, the others looked like werewolves with
no fur or skin, and with the flesh they did have, falling off, and one
other, had one large arm and one small one, it had the head of a Human
but with a gray skin tint, and only one very large eye. All Jack and I
could do was watch as the beasts, broke into the holding cells and ripped
the civilians apart, when they got done killing the civilians, they headed
for the captain and the other two. They fired with everything they had,
but it wasn't enough, our view was blocked, as the captains blood splattered
onto the small window that we where looking into.
Chapter 3: The Escape
After the horrible scene of terror that we had experienced,
I sat outside the door with my face in my hands crying lightly, while Jack
leaned on the door hitting it with his hands. As he turned he saw me crying,
bent down and tried to comfort me, I took my face out of my hands and looked
at him, he held me in his arms. "Jack I don't want this to happen
to one of us." I said. "Same, here." He replied. As we sat
there, the civilian that attacked the captain, started to wake up. Jack
let go of me and approached him. He woke up and tried to run. "Hey
calm down." Jack replied. "Who are you?" the rouge asked.
"I'm Jack, and this is Alice, what's wrong?" Jack replied, and
then asked. "I'm Dillon Steel." The suspect replied. "I'm
sorry about what I did in there, but if you had to fight against those
monsters every day for a week, with no protection but a revolver, you'd
be hostile too." I walked over to him and started talking to him."
You're saying that they gave the people in those cells weapons?" I
asked. "Yeah." He replied. "They think of it as entertainment,
watching us fight off those monsters, every single day." He continued.
"Whoa! You're talking crazy. You're saying that you kept those monsters
off of you for a week with six bullets?" Jack asked. "A bullet
a day." Dillon replied. "So they liked watching all of those
people die that way? I asked. "Yeah.you could say that. I was the
only one that survived a whole week, and they where going to inject me
with the T- Virus today to watch me die, but due to the problem outside,
they cancelled my injection." Dillon answered. "Why were you
in there in the first place?" Jack asked. " Because they caught
me trying to pocket the virus secrets." After a long silence
I broke it. "Do you know a way out of here?" I asked. "Yeah,
but it could be dangerous. You'll need ammo." He replied.
We followed him as he led us back to the armory after
we had finished talking. When I figured out where we were going, I spoke
up. "You do know that there aren't any weapons in here don't you?"
I asked him. "Yeah I know that." He replied. "Umbrella and
STARS units are using them in a conjunction movement to ward off the monsters
outside." He continued. "So why are we here?" Jack asked.
"If you noticed when you came in here earlier, there is a hidden passage
way in the back of the room, that leads to another armory, hopefully they
haven't taken the weapons from there yet." Dillon replied. We walked
into the armory, and it was still bare. We searched around for the hidden
door but neither Jack nor I could find it, Dillon led us to it instantly,
as if he had been there before. After Dillon had opened the door, we went
in, it was dark, cold and it felt as if I was standing in water. I couldn't
see anything, but finally Jack lit a flare and a bright green light went
around us. After the flare was lit I could see all around us. The passage
way resembled a sewage drainage pipe in many ways. Other pipes led down
to other rooms in the building, but only one was the right one for us.
We followed Dillon farther into the pipe, the dark devilish scenery along
with the darkness of the atmosphere sent a strike of fear down my spine.
Above our heads in the room above we could here the screeching and footsteps
of another monster. With every step the monster took I could see the plaster
in the ceiling splitting, I knew instantly that this beast was bigger and
more powerful than the ones we had been seeing
We followed Dillon farther until we got to another
door at the end of the tunnel. This door was less high-tech, and much like
any normal door made of wood with a normal turn handle. Dillon opened it
and clicked on the light. Inside it looked like a storage room, not as
clean as the armory, and much less high-tech. "This is where we'll
find our weapons. Start looking." Dillon said. Jack, Dillon and I
all started breaking boxes open in an attempt to find something. anything
that could help us. Jack found ammo for his gun as well as a few grenades,
and some first aid packets. Dillon found ammo for his revolver as well
as a storm machine gun which was not quite as strong as Jack's, but who
would've expected it to be due its small size. And I found A Bennelli Shotgun,
which I instantly loaded and kept at my side, while I put my handgun and
my newly found ammo, in my side pouch. I walked over to Jack and Dillon.
"You guys ready to blow this joint?" I asked them. They both
nodded in reply, and we left the small storage room.
When we got into the passageway, the ceiling had fallen
in from where it was splitting earlier. The fallen ceiling blocked our
only way out, but it was stacked up and it supplied us with a way out through
the room above. As we approached the piled up debris, going to climb out.
The monster I heard jumped down from the room with the agility of a cat,
but it was huge. I backed up and stood behind Jack and Dillon. The beast
was shaped a lot like a spider but with only four limbs. It hadn't any
eyes, and its brain showed over its skull, it's tongue shot out at an amazing
length, around seven feet and it could have easily be used as a weapon.
"Alice get back, we 'll take this!" Jack yelled. Jack and Dillon,
got their automatics out and started firing, but the long tongued monster
dodged the rapid-fire shots. After a few seconds of dodging, the "Licker"
tackled Jack down, and tried to use its amazingly sharp claws to cut him
into small pieces. I got angry, and finally shot the thing in the head
making it burst blood all over Jack's face. Jack tried to stand up but
the weight of the monster was too great. Dillon and I went over and pushed
the monster off of him. "Blast it!" Dillon yelled. "What
the heck was that!" He continued. "I've never noticed that in
the UBCS plans before." Jack said. As he rolled onto his stomach and
stuck his face into the water on the tunnel floor trying to get his face
clean of the blood." Come on, let's climb up, and head out of here.
I replied as I started walking up the pile of debris.
When we reached the room above we moved cautiously,
watching every wall as if it were an enemy. The room was much different
than the passageway. There were barred windows and we could see outside,
but we couldn't get out through them. We could see by the window, that
we where on the first floor, so we knew that we were almost out of the
building. We walked out of the door and we ended up in the main lobby of
the building, on the wall was a C4 bomb, almost like a trap. I quickly
ran over to it so I could determine how long the time was on it, while
Jack and Dillon tried to get out the front door, which was locked. I screamed
out how much time was left. "Twenty seconds!" I yelled. Jack
and Dillon got their guns out and tried to shoot the door open, but it
wouldn't budge. "Ten seconds left!" I yelled as I ran over to
the door. Jack, Dillon and I all dashed at the door trying to break it
out, the first time we didn't succeed "About five seconds left!"
I screamed, as if it were all over. We finally got the strength and we
bust down the door. We had enough time to get far enough away from the
falling debris of the building, with only a few bruises and scratches wefinally
escaped the building.
Chapter 4: The RPD Office
After we escaped the building we had decided that our
next objective would be to find help, if there was any left in the town.
Our first and most obvious starting place would be the Raccoon City Police
Department. The Umbrella building we where in was quite a way from the
RPD office, so we had quite a while to go through the city until we got
there. The clouds had finally gone and the rain that we had seen last time
we were outside had ended, The sun shone bright like the mid afternoon
of a spring day, and it felt like one too. The bright appearance of the
city made it look much less intimidating than the darkness did, but there
was still an inner darkness that surrounded us. The light didn't seem to
faze the zombies, and it was still as normal as the city had been since
the problem started. As we walked through the city, Jack seemed anxious
yet inherent to get to the Police Office. It was as if he was looking for
something and he knew it was there. All I could think was; what was it
and what did it have to do with our mission. While Jack ignored what was
going on in the city, I had noticed that Dillon wasn't ignoring anything;
he gave the impression that he wasn't frightened but not valiant either,
it was as if he was teasing the monsters around us, and if one of them
came too close to him he'd shoot them in the head. We continued walking
until we got to the street the RPD Office was on. A bus that had wrecked
blocked the street; it was still upright but stretched across the street
so we couldn't get around it. The only way around it was through it.
When we got to the bus we could see inside the windows,
the passengers that had died in the wreckage were now walking around in
the bus, bumping into each other and the seats. "We have to get through
it somehow." Dillon said. "I know."Jack replied. I stood
there looking into the bus. As I peered into the window, one of the zombies
turned and looked me straight in the eyes, I was scared stiff as the creatures
ice blue eyes dug deep into my soul. Without thinking I instantly shot
a hole through the window with my shotgun, hitting it in the head. "Alice
no!" Dillon replied. "You'll get their attention!" Before
he could finish what he was saying, the zombies burst through the windows
of the bus, and crawled after us, we where standing there and shooting
with everything we had, but the zombies continued to apprehend us. The
bullets tore at the zombies flesh making them look even more menacing than
they already were. After a large number of gunshots and blood shed the
zombies finally ceased about three feet from our ankles. Luckily enough
when we got into the bus we found out the rest of the people in the bus
had already been devoured by their fellow civilians. Making our way through
the wreckage much easier. When we got to the other side of the bus we were
only a few feet away from the Raccoon City Police Department front gate.
We approached the gate being extremely watchful in
our attempt to get inside. Making sure not to be seen by one of those monsters.
We broke open the large gate, and walked into the small courtyard of the
building. We looked around and saw that there were four dead zombies lying
around the courtyard pools of their own blood. Dillon and I were suspicious
but Jack looked as if he knew what had happened. Jack had been acting strange
all day, ever since we got out of the Umbrella building. Whatever was bugging
him was inside this building. We proceeded towards the building and went
in the door. It's old rusted hinges screeched as if it was one of the monsters.
When we walked in we could see that the lights were on, along with the
light that came through the windows. "She's Here!" Jack yelled.
He started running and ran through an open door. He shut it behind him
as if he didn't want us to follow. I yelled out trying to stop him, but
he continued running. We immediately started following him, followed the
same path he did. Every time we saw his back he was already on his way
to the next room. "Dillon. We have to keep following him." I
said. Dillon nodded in reply and we kept following him. We finally came
to a stairway were we got within a few feet of him, but he was still ahead
of us. Above the stairwell were it ended. Dillon and I could hear machine
gun shots. "Jack!" We yelled. We ran faster to find out what
happened. When we got there Jack was gone, and there was a dead cop, who
had also been effected by the virus. We followed him further into another
hallway but he was gone.
We searched through the hallway for him but there was
no trace. There was one room in the hallway, with a sign by the door that
read "S.T.A.R.S Office" We opened the door and ran in. On the
wall there was a large STARS symbol. All throughout the room, there were
desks scattered out in an unorganized manner, and papers strewn out like
sand on a beach. In the corner of the room Dillon and I saw Jack bent down
with his arm around someone. The person was crying, and watching old news
videotapes on the TV that also stood in the corner. We walked over to them
and saw that the person he was holding was a young brunette woman in her
early twenties. She was watching old news tapes of what had happened in
a mansion a few years ago; the same thing that was happening now. "Jack"
Dillon said. "What's going on?" Jack was silent and didn't pay
any attention to us. It was as if he didn't even know we were there. I
spoke up again. "Jack.what's wrong?" I asked. After a few seconds
he stood up, along with the girl; holding her hand. "Jack.Whatsup?"
Dillon asked. "This is my girlfriend Jill Valentine." Jack replied.
I was startled. The whole time we had been together I began to fall for
him, now I was jealous and angry but I tried not to show it. "Jill
was in a problem like this a few years ago when this happened in a mansion
outside of town." He continued." Now she is living through this
again.it's as if this nightmare won't go away. Jack walked over to the
TV and rewound a videotape. Dillon and I walked over to it and started
"We're here with one of the survivors of the tragic
problem that happened at the mansion outside of town. Special Tactics And
Rescue Service member, Jill Valentine.So Jill what happened?"
"We went into that mansion looking for shelter,
but we found something even worse than what we were looking for. What was
in that building is scarier than you can possibly imagine."
"So.ummm.what was in there?"
"Monsters.but not the kind you see in movies,
these monsters made Godzilla look like a puppy dog."
"Really, can you explain what they were
"They were human, but they weren't -- they-they-they were
"O.K .ummm.this is startling information folks,
but don't let this bother you. Jill has been extremely tired since the
accident. So, for RCN I' m Nick Rodgers, saying Good Day, Good Night, and......"
"This happened before?" I asked. "Yes."
Jill replied, this was the first thing she had said since, we met her.
"This same exact thing happened. To me. and my friends.." She
started crying again. " Dillon walked over to Jack. "Jack.How
did you know she was in here?" He asked. "This problem started
about the same time I got off of work. I went to go pick Jill up from were
she worked. After we drove a few minutes, one of those things got in our
way and we wrecked off the side of the road. From there we ran away. We
where being chased by a large group of monsters, I could shoot some of
them down, but the rest followed us. when we got to the street we are on
now, we were separated by another group of the monsters. I saw her run
into the RPD Office while I ran to look for help. I knew that before I
tried anything else I had to save her." "We need to get out of
here." I replied. "We can't get out of here." Dillon said.
"Why not?" Jill asked. "I just looked out of the window
and the street is full of the zombies, hundreds of them are out there."
Dillon continued. "There's no way we could get out, by the street."
The room was silent, as though we were all thinking. "I know a way
out, but it could be extremely dangerous." Jill replied. "Will
it be safer than the street?" Jack asked. "I f it's as bad as
he says than, it should be. There's a train down underneath the police
department that connects from the underground laboratory to the Main Umbrella
building on the outside of the town.If we could get in there, we could
probably terminate the program, by now it's abandoned, if not, everyone
has been changed into monsters." Dillon spoke. "So you're saying
that we could terminate the program?" He asked. "Probably, it
won't hurt to try.Then we could get out of this city. Let's get out of
here." Jill Replied.
Chapter 5: Out of the City
We headed down into the underground of the police department.
After going though a multiple number of doors we finally came to an immense
one, which led down to the underground Umbrella laboratory. We opened it
and cautiously walked in. The lights were on but dimmed, and the room was
a muddle. It was large with a lot of room to move, but we all stood secure
to each other for fortification. Jack and Jill held hands and they seemed
closest of our group. We moved farther into the room, desks where promiscuously
placed and they made our trip harder than it already was. The arrangement
of the furniture was deffinetly not prosaic. The sounds of the necrotic
monsters that were also underground could be heard through the thin metal
walls. Even as dangerous as we knew it would be we continued through the
We arrived at the other side of the room after a few
minutes of evading tables. That side of the room was not quite as damaged
as the other but it was still intricate. Hanging on the wall was a sign
that read. "In Pace Requiescat". Jack walked over to the sign
and translated it from Latin to English. "May he rest in peace? That's
what it says." Jack turned around and looked at us with Jill's hand
still held tightly in his. "What could this mean?" Dillon asked.
"I don't know." Jack replied. "It could be a hint."
Jill added. "Yeah you're right." I quickly answered. "Maybe
we should remember this. In Pace Requiescat." Jack Replied. "We
should keep moving." Dillon said as he walked towards the door that
the rest of us had not yet seen. Jill and Jack went in first because Jill
had been down there before. Right behind them I was close behind,
and Dillon behind me. Behind the door was a small hall. One of the walls
was amorphous in shape do to a rheum from one of the underground water
pipes. We walked through the hallway and the resonance of the cannibals
still reverberated through the underground station. "Only a few more
steps we're almost to the train" Jill said.
We walked down to the door at the end of the hallway
and opened it. We were know inside the station area. "There's the
train!" I yelled. " As soon as I had finished we all started
running to the train. But as soon as we go to it we heard a voice. "Do
you really think that you would get out of here that easily? Heee Heee
Heee Hee He!" The voice had a French Accent and it was deffinetly
noticeable to be a man by its deep tone. "If you want to get out of
here you're going to have to entertain me. Hahehehehehe!" He continued
and cut of the transmission. "I've got a bad feeling." Jack replied.
As soon as he stopped. The door we came through burst open and a
large pale figure walked in. It was around eight feet tall and a pale tan
color almost that of a Krait's bands. It's lips were bright red like a
Cossack, and it hadn't any eyes. It was bare fleshed and without a gender.
Its left hand was much noticeably larger than it's right. And it had spikes
coming out of it. While it's right was that of a necrotic
The four of us recoiled like snakes in terror. The
monster continued to apprehend us aloft. We were now standing on the back
of the train. The monster with us. The base was about 25 feet long and
about 7 feet wide, which gave us plenty of room to fight it. After a few
seconds the train started moving. "We need to kill this thing."
Jill Yelled. Immediately we started firing. The wind from the speed of
the moving train was the only thing that kept the monster away from us,
along with the firing of our guns. The monster just scarcely flinched at
the shots of our guns, but we continued shooting nevertheless. The monster
charged after Jill and grabbed her by the neck. The whole time she was
in it's hands she was tremulous - Shaking precariously - "Jill!"
Jack yelled and continued to shoot at the monster all the more, but the
monster gave the impression that he was intolerable. The monster started
raising it's left hand. Jack rapidly bowed his eyes to the hand, and noticed
that the spikes where growing longer and the hand was getting closer. Knowing
that the bullets weren't disconcerting it. He stormed toward the monster
with the weight of all the paraphernalia wrapped around him and rammed
into it knocking Jill out of its hands. The Monster tried to hold back
Jacks weight, but it was too much; even for something that big. The monster
was knocked of the side of the train and Jack with it. The firing ceased
with the sound of Jill blaring. "Jack!"
The three of us walked into the train and sat down.
Jill was dumbfounded at the Idea that Jack was gone and I too. "Hey
you two." Dillon said. "Don't worry about it. We can get out
of here.Together." Jill began to cry, as I stood up and walked over
to look out the door." Jack." I thought to myself "You're
leaving Jill alone.you can't be dead." I walked back over and sat
down again next to Jill. The ambiance inside the train was hushed, with
the exception of Jill's expression of grief and Dillon beating his gun
on the floor. After a few minutes the voice spoke again. "So.you get
to flee? Good for you, but you won't make it out of that train." Again
we were terrified. The flap to the cockpit opened up and the Monster that
we thought Jack had killed walked in. Its right arm was completely gone
and a rheum sprayed from it. Its red lips could now not be differenced
from the blood on its face. The whole right side of its body was almost
completely immolated, and it seemed that it was heading for Jill again.
The monster seemed as if it had an infatuation her. She stood up and backed
away from the monster. As the monster got closer it seemed as though Jill
was scared stiff, the ogre reached for her. And a combat knife flew over
her head, hitting the fiend in between were the eyes would be - If he had
any - It fell to the ground and started flinching. But we all wondered
where the knife came from. Jill fell to the floor still suffering from
the side effects of the trepidation but she was still conscious.
We stood looking through the door waiting for someone
- Or something - To walk through it. After a few seconds of waiting a figure
in dark colored clothing staggered in. Dillon readied his gun and prepared
to fire. "No!" I yelled, trying to stop Dillon from firing. "Its
Jack!" I continued. Jack continued to stagger into the room as he
fell to the floor right next to Jill. "Jack! Your alive!" She
opened her eyes and saw Jack laying there. Jack continued to remain motionless
as he spoke in a crackly voice. "See the trouble you get me into?"
Jack asked. Jill did nothing but laugh over her tears of contrition as
she cuddled up against his prone body, just hardly sensing his heartbeat.
Dillon ran into the cockpit room. "Hey you guys we're almost out of
here I see Light - - -!" Dillon was interrupted by the voice once
again. "Fine then. If you're getting out of this city then I'll blow
it up!" The accent exclaimed with an irate tone. "You don't even
have to worry about it, because you are all going to die anyway!"
The four of us waited for the end of the tunnel as the voice continued
speaking." There will be a missile sent to this city. I'm going to
wipe this city and everything in it off the map.Hahahahahahahahah!!!"
The sound cut at the time we reached the light.
The train came to a halt right at the front door of
the Main Umbrella Building. As it stopped we could see a helicopter taking
off behind the building. And a dense laugh could be heard over the sound
of the copter flutter. He passed over our heads and as if on purpose dropped
a watch that told how much time we had to get out of the city; fifteen
minutes. We ran around the building, with Dillon carrying Jack on his shoulders.
When we got there we got into the other helicopter and flew off, away from
the terror that we had faced. As we were flying -- Approximately 4 miles
away -- We could see the small mushroom cloud as Raccoon City was gone
and so was the frightening experience that we will never forget.
Dillon's Diary: September 23rd
It's been 3 months since the tragic nightmare in Raccoon City. The sounds
of the monsters are still in my dreams. And I can't help but think about
all the thing's I - no - WE went through. The others and I still keep in
touch and I hope to get together all of us again some day. God forbid that
we meet the same way we did last time.
Jack's Diary: October 12th
Four months have passed and I still think about my near death experience.
I 'm just glad that rail was there to catch me when I fell. I also think
about how I almost lost Jill. But now we are living together and I'm just
happy that the nightmares over. Lets just be glad that I quit Umbrella.
Jill's Diary: October 31st
Almost five months since my last experience. It's almost becoming to be
a yearly ritual.Ha. Hopefully now.It's over. I don't want to go through
that again. I almost lost the one dearest to me. He risked his life for
me and I' d do the same for him. Thank you Jack. I love you.
Alice's Diary: January
7-going on- 8 months since what happened in that small rural city. I will
always remember what we went through. But we made it out alive. I still
have feelings for Jack. But I hope that He and Jill are happy together.
If I had to go through it again, I wouldn't pick any one different than
the three friends I made in Raccoon City.
Jill walked into her and Jacks living room and turned the T.V on. Our top
story tonight, the small rural town of Raccoon City has been completely
demolished and turned into a crater.
All we can wonder is why. In other news Umbrella's Figure Head leader who
requires that he remains anonymous has noted that he is going to relocate
the Raccoon City Umbrella Headquarters in somewhere in France.But one question
Jill clicked off the T.V and immediately remembered the hidden voice's
French accent She and Jack moved to France to get away from the terror
but they may just be getting a taste of the fear.
