Green eyes snapped open and Chloe shot up in a sitting position.
All she could see was white.
White padded walls, white electronically locked door…even her hospital gown was starch white.
She was sitting on the ground, squinting, the bright white light hurting her eyes.
High above, out of reach, was a smoked glass window. A light came on behind it to reveal four figures.
“What happened in the Hive?” One of them asked her.
“Where are the others?” Chloe struggled to her feet. “What about Kappa? Is he alright?”
“We ask the questions.” Another interrogator sneered.
“The hell you do.” Chloe snapped.
“What happened in the Hive?” The first interrogator asked once again.
“We had tea with the Mad Hatter and then the Red Queen decided it was time to swing the gauntlet while screaming: Off with their heads!” Chloe sneered.
Realizing that she wasn’t in a cooperative mood, the light behind the smoked glass window dimmed, and the interrogators disappeared from view.
They kept doing this, coming at random hourly intervals, asking her the same question, and she refused to answer it, not until they told her where her friends were and how they were doing.
Chloe laid on the bare floor, white on white, wondering how long it’d been since she’d been captured.
At least they’re not experimenting on me this time.
With that happy thought she fell asleep.
A siren woke her…the siren that warned her that there was a presence in the room behind the glass and that she was about to have the honor of having another fascinating conversation with the interrogators.
The light behind the smoked glass window cam one, and the interrogators were revealed once more.
“What happened in the Hive?” The first interrogator asked once more.
“You know, the fact that Lex has yet to show up means that something’s happened to him.” Chloe commented, looking down at her fingernails. “Did someone finally kill him?”
“What happened in the Hive?” The second interrogator snapped.
Chloe looked up, surprised. “Did
someone kill Lex?”
“I don’t think you realize the gravity of your situation.” The first interrogator spoke.
Chloe smirked at them. “Do you?”
“Things would go better if you would cooperate.” The second was obviously doing his best to keep his temper under control.
might get some answers if you
cooperated.” Chloe shot back.
“What happened in the Hive?” The first interrogator tried once more.
In answer, Chloe laid back down on the floor, using her hands behind her as cushions, as she closed her eyes and began to hum ‘Staying Alive’ by the Bee Gees.
She didn’t need to open her eyes to know that they’d gone, the light switching off.
They continued with this routine, with this dance, and Chloe couldn’t help but feel smug as she realized that despite being held captive, she was the one leading this tango.
Sitting in the corner, her back against the wall, Chloe sighed.
She had no idea if it was night or day, or how many days she’d been kept there.
By now Lois would have definitely known something was wrong and would be trying to look for her.
Chloe only hoped she didn’t get herself into trouble.
She stared at the white label on her white hospital gown. It bore the logo of the Umbrella Corporation.
The siren sounded again, and Chloe looked up with a sigh as the light behind the smoked glass window came on.
But the interrogators were nowhere to be seen.
Their seats were empty.
Instead, a half lit figure moved behind the glass, seeming unsteady on its feet.
Chloe’s eyes widened in horror as she heard a terrifyingly familiar sound.
A low groaning noise.
It seemed almost human.Almost
At that moment, the electronic lock by the door clicked from red to green, and the padded cell door swung open an inch.
There was no telling what horror awaited outside…but what choice did she really have?
Suddenly a shadow appeared through the crack, and then the door was swung open wide to reveal Lois Lane, holding a gun, and another in a hoister under her arm.
She smiled. “Missed me?”
Chloe was unable to believe it was true at first, but then she realized that it really was her cousin, and she flew to her, hugging her tightly. “Lois!”
“You didn’t think I’d leave you here to rot, did you?” Lois asked, hugging her back before pulling away and looking around her nervously. “Some really sick shit has been happening, Baby Cuz. We need to get the hell outta Racoon City. Now. While we still can.”
Chloe nodded, sliding the gun out of Lois’ hoister and checked to make sure it was loaded and the safety off before sticking her head out of the cell, looking to the right
It was the same bright white on white, a corridor stretching off into infinity.
Gun trained in front of her, Chloe nervously peered to the left…and barely kept herself from screaming when she came face-to-chest with two figures.
Her gaze went up, ready to shoot, when she recognized the faces of the people dressed in identical hospital gowns as her.
“Sam!” She whispered, lowering her gun. “Rain!” Throwing precaution to the wind she threw herself at them, hugging them tightly, so relieved.
The hugged her back.
Lois stepped out of the cell, raising an eyebrow at them. “Friends of yours?”
Chloe pulled away and nodded. “Lois, these are Sam and Rain---I never got their surnames.” She turned to Sam and Rain, who looked amused with her. “Guys, this is my cousin and partner in crime, Lois Lane.”
Sam shook her hand. “Nice to meet you.”
“You too.” Lois seemed amused for some reason.
Rain shook her hand as well. “We would have died if it hadn’t been for Chloe’s quick thinking.”
“I can understand that.” Lois nodded.
“Where were you guys?” Chloe asked, just so relieved that they were okay.
“They were holding us in cells next door.” Sam responded.
“Kappa?” The blonde was scared to be hopeful.
Rain sighed and shook her head. “He’s not here.” She gazed down the endless white corridor, there was no sign of life. “We seem to be the only ones here.”
“Where is everyone?” Chloe turned to Lois. “How were you able to infiltrate an Umbrella Corp facility so easily?”
“Why couldn’t it have been because of my incredible skills?” Lois wanted to know, before a sound somewhere up the corridor made her go pale. “We have to get out of here. That might be another of those things
Chloe, remembering the half lit figure staggering in the interrogation, went pale as well, as suddenly everything made sense. “They reopened the Hive.”
Sam and Rain’s eyes widened in horror.
“They couldn’t have been so stupid!” Sam exclaimed, running his hand over his hair.
“Wanna bet?” Rain looked around the corridor, looking for some sort of weapon yet not really finding any.
“Let’s get out of here.” Chloe turned to Lois. “Lead the way.”
With Lois in front and Chloe bringing up the rear, they made it out of the facility and walked out into the middle of downtown Raccoon City. But it wasn’t like it’d been days before. It was now devastated, as if a war had taken place and they hadn’t known.
Cars were crashed in the street, not one single human being could be seen, and a newspaper blowing past Chloe read “THE DEAD WALK
”, summing up perfectly what had happened.
The idiots from Umbrella Corp had reopened the Hive, and let the virus out, and now the whole of Raccoon City was under siege from the undead.
Rain motioned to Sam with her head towards a crashed police cruiser, and they made their way silently throughout the mess of cars, looking inside and finding a gun and a shotgun.
Pumping the shotgun and pocketing the extra bullets, Sam’s eyes narrowed in determination.
Chloe didn’t realize she was admiring him until Lois nudged her playfully with her elbow. “And here all this time I was worried
about you.” She teased.
“What?” Chloe asked, blushing slightly, trying to deny it despite the red creeping up her neck.
Lois chuckled evilly.
Sam turned towards them as Rain and he returned to Lois and Chloe, his blue/green gaze zeroing on Chloe almost as instinct.
Chloe blushed darker and looked away and cleared her throat, deciding she was going to hurt Lois for making her blush like this in front of him.
“Listen.” Rain, totting her new gun, narrowed her eyes.
They listened, and heard that low moaning that’d accompanied them all throughout the Hive.
Lois took in a deep breath and gulped. “Can we go now? The whole city has been blocked off, quarantined, but there’s one section where they’re letting out anyone who can prove that they aren’t infected. We need to get there now before something happens and they close our only exit shut.”
The small group shared a look and nodding, training their weapons as they started moving as a unit, their fight far from over.
