“Oh crap.” Chloe whispered, taking a couple of hurried steps backwards as what could only be the undead, took a lunge at her, falling to the ground when she evaded its tackle. “Crap crap crap CRAP!”

Looking around her as the creature slowly got to its feet again, Chloe tried to find something with which to protect herself, while at the same time trying to remember every single zombie movie she’d ever watched.

Sure those zombies had been supernaturally brought about, and not by some horrible virus, but there had to be some truth to the legends…right?

The creature lunged at her again, mouth bloody and open, teeth tinted red.

Grabbing a broom that’d been left to the side by some unruly janitor, Chloe screamed as she slammed the wooden handle into the undead’s head over and over again, the blows sending it to the ground.

Standing over it Chloe brought down the handle of the broom against the jaw, twisting the head violently…a loud crack resounding throughout the hallway as the neck broke…and the thing went deathly still.

Shaking, yet refusing to let go of her only weapon like the women in every single horror movie seemed to do, Chloe backed away in shock.

She was trapped underground in a secret facility with only the ravenous undead as company…and a broom for a weapon.

“I’m going to die.” She whispered, backing up against the wall and sliding down it. “And this time…I’m going to stay dead.”

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the control room, a glass walled control booth looked out onto a long stainless steel corridor. The metal was so highly polished it hurt to look at it.

“What’s taking so long?” One asked.

Kappa was operating three plasma screen laptops simultaneously, running multiple bypasses on the control room computers.

“Red Queen’s just beyond that door.” He indicated a thick vault door at the end of the steel corridor. “And she’s well protected.” Above the door sat an infrared camera with a Weapons Cluster built around it. “High explosive, armor piercing, C.S. gas…this baby has it all.”

Every five seconds the camera panned the corridor, the Weapons Cluster following the sweep, prepared to annihilate anything that crossed its path.

“I thought she was going to have trouble with Pong?” Jennifer raised an eyebrow.

“You know we don’t believe in taking risks.” One scolded.

In the steel corridor, the Weapons Cluster powered down.

Kappa grinned. “We’re in!”

One turned to Sam. “You stay here.” He then nodded to Jennifer.

Jennifer nodded, following One as he led the way to the vault door. They advanced cautiously, still wary of any potential traps.

Sam stood next to Kappa, who still sat at his station by the three laptops. Both watched through the glass wall as the duo advanced.

One stood before the vault door. That thing looked like it could withstand an atomic bomb. One placed a tiny electronic box over the vault’s locking mechanism. He turned to where Sam and Kappa were still in the safety of the Control Room. “Transmitter in position.”

Kappa fired up his three computers. “Roger…running the bypass.”

Sam watched as thousands of letters and numbers scrolled across the three plasma screens. On the first computer the possibilities quickly reduced, and then settled on a simple code: RQ KR 4 WQ QB 4 WQ QB 5 – UNLOCK.

After a moment, the second screen read: WQ KB 8 WQ QB 8 RK K 2 – UNLOCK.

Then the third and final screen:

WK KB 5 RQ K WQ QR 6 – UNLOCK.

Kappa sat back, satisfied. “Checkmate.”

The vault door reverberated as its giants locking mechanisms came undone. Thirty inches of steel plate swung aside to reveal a high domed chamber, bathed in red light.

The lair of the Red Queen.

One motioned to Jennifer. “Forwards.”

From the Control Room, Sam watched in fascination as One unhooked what looked like a miniature rocket launcher from his belt. “What’s that?”

“That’s what’s going to put the Queen to sleep.” Kappa replied. “The shells are tipped with depleted uranium.”

Sam’s eyes widened as he turned his full attention on Kappa. “They’re radioactive?”

“No…” Kappa hesitated a second, looking mildly uncomfortable. “It’s what’s left of uranium once nuclear fission is over.”

Sam frowned, returning his attention to the team. “Ten times heavier than lead.”

Kappa blinked in surprise. “How did you know that?”

Sam shrugged. “I read “Guns and Ammo”.”

In the corridor, One was just about to enter the Queen’s chamber when, without warning, a thick blast door suddenly slammed down, separating One and Jennifer from the control room and cutting off their escape route.

“Kappa?” One spoke into his earpiece.

Far from the relaxed and somewhat smug position he’d been in moments ago, Kappa now scrambled for an answer, his fingers flying between the three keyboards. “Some kind of dormant defense mechanism…we must have tripped it when we opened the door.”

“Well put it back to sleep!” One ordered.

“Working on it.” Kappa’s fingers moved at almost inhuman speed.

“What’s that?” Sam asked, moving forwards towards the blast door, eyes on the glass, which gave them a Birdseye view of what was going on.

From within the Queen’s chamber came a sudden movement. A horizontal red line traveled down the corridor at high speed.

“Down! Down!” One ordered, dragging Jennifer to the ground as the wire thin beam of light passed overhead.

“What the fuck was that?” Jennifer asked, terrified, as they both struggled to their feet.

“Laser beam.” One responded, eyes narrowed. "Stay out of its way…it’ll cut straight through you.”

In the Control Room Sam was trying to force the heavy steel blast door open. “Get them out of there!”

“I’m trying!” Kappa was beginning to panic. It was obvious.

In the steel corridor, Jennifer’s voice could be heard. “It’s coming back!”

The thin line of laser light streaked back towards them, this time just above ankle level, like a trip wire. Jennifer tried to jump over it, but the laser adjusted, suddenly rising in height.

The medic was caught off caught, and sliced neatly in two. She stayed conscious for a couple of seconds…just long enough to see the horror of her own body falling apart.

“KAPPA!” Sam screamed.

“I’m TRYING!” Kappa screamed back.

Only One had survived. He’d leapt into the air and stayed here, his feet braced against either wall of the corridor.

The laser beam passed right underneath him, only just missing. A knife that hung from his belt was cut in two, the metal blade clattered to the steel floor below.

In the Control Room, Sam continued to struggle with the blast door, surprising none more than himself as it began to slowly start to inch open.

But the laser wire was coming back for One.

“Shut it down!” One yelled into his earpiece. “Shut it down!”

“Almost there…” Kappa promised, working desperately.

Streams of letters and number chased across his computer screens as Kappa closed in on the override code.

One readied himself as the laser wire raced towards him.

It was at waist level, but could alter at any moment.

One stood his ground ready to pit his lightning reflexes against those of the computer, his concentration absolute.

At the last second, the single thin laser wire switched to a grid, fifty interlocking laser lines forming a deadly net from which there was no escape.

“Shit.” One whispered right before the laser grid diced him into three-inch cubes.

In the Control Room, Sam and Kappa watched in horror as One’s body literally fell apart.

They were silent, horrified, unable to believe what they’d witnessed.

Kappa’s laptop beeped, breaking the silence.

It’d cracked the override code.

In the steel corridor the laser flickered and then died as the blast door opened in front of Sam.

“Alright…” Kappa got uncertainly to his feet. “Let’s do it.”

“What?” Sam turned to him, unsure that he’d just heard that.

“We—we have to complete the mission.” Kappa stammered, obviously terrified as he glanced into the steel corridor, at the bodies of his fallen comrades. “H-her defenses are down.”

Sam followed Kappa’s gaze and gulped, wanting to tell him he was on his own, but Sam couldn’t, not when the other guy was basically trembling in his combat boots. “Alright.”

They both took in a deep breath before venturing into the steel corridor. Side by side, jacked up on adrenalin, they edged past the mutilated bodies and into the Queen’s chamber, which was flooded with red light, and seemed to pulse with a life of it own.

Kappa now carried the missile launcher, the trigger slick with blood. He approached a computer console at the center of the room.

Circular in design, and just over four feet high, it resembled a giant chess piece.

“Get out!” A beautiful, sixteen year old girl walked from the shadows. She was obviously furious, her hands clenched in anger. “Get out! You can’t be in here!”

Sam was taken back.

Were there survivors?

Kappa ignored her, walking straight up to the girl and then stepped clean through her. “Holographic representation of the Red Queen.” He explained as he began to set up the missile launcher, oblivious to the angry girl at his side. “Modeled after the Head Programmer’s daughter.”

“I wouldn’t advise this.” The Red Queen announced dryly.

Kappa ignored her, speaking to Sam. “Don’t listen to anything she says.”

“Disabling me will result in loss of primary power.” She warned.

“She’s only trying to deceive us.” Kappa continued to talk as if she hadn’t said a word.

“You’ll never be able to reach the surface.” The Red Queen replied.

“…confuse us…” Kappa shook his head.

The Red Queen glared at him. “Everything I have done has been for your own good.”

“She’ll say anything to stop us from shutting her down.” Kappa determined as he readied the rocket launcher. He stood before a glowing red lens at the top of the console.

It was the Red Queen’s ‘eye’.

“The console is armored.” She snorted at him, clearly unimpressed. “You won’t penetrate it.”

Kappa pointed the rocket launcher straight at the Queen’s eye. “Uranium tipped shells.”

Sam nodded. “Ten times heavier than lead.”

“I implore you…” Red Queen begged, desperate.

“Implore away.” Kappa sneered.

“Please.” Red Queen’s pleading voice sounds almost human…a vulnerable young girl. “Please!”

Kappa’s finger tightened. Fourteen pounds of pressure on a fifteen pound trigger.

He was going to do it.

All humanity suddenly vanished from Red Queen’s voice as she sneered at them. “You’re all going to die down here.”

Kappa fired…and the missile penetrated the console.

The image of the Queen and then the lights in the chamber flickered and died.

For a second, inky darkness…and then the lights in the emergency lighting kicked in.

This new menacing half-light was accompanied by a heavy metallic pounding noise. It was distant to start with, but gradually drew closer like a giant’s footsteps slowly approaching.

Sam turned around, the sound all around them. “What is that?”

“Most of the doors down here are magnetic locking.” Kappa answered. “When we cut the main power, we popped them all wide open.” He smiled. “Getting out should be a lot easier than coming in.”

Sam wondered why that sounded like famous last words.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Walking down the corridor, broom in one hand, and holographic map in the other, Chloe wanted to breathe a breath of relief when she realized how close she was to the exit.

But she knew her luck…and knew somehow that the worst was far from over.

She’d passed so many rooms with those things trapped in them, and it was only thanks to the bullet proof glass between that’d kept the creatures throwing themselves at the glass at her from…

Chloe shivered.

Suddenly the corridor she was in went pitch black.

Her body froze in horror.

The electricity had cut off.

The sound of heavy steel doors opened all over the complex.

Even the door to the flooded science lab she’d passed a while back opened, the sound of the water racing out into the corridor—and bodies hitting the side of the wall—echoing throughout the darkness.

They were free.

By the time the emergency lights came on she was already running as fast as her legs could take her.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


“Here it is. Her logic chip.” Kappa announced, holding a small box the size of a single case in his hand. Its surface was covered in a pattern of black and white squares, like a miniature chessboard. “The essence of the Red Queen condensed on a single microprocessor.”

“Is it safe?” Sam wanted to know, wary.

“Don’t worry.” Kappa looked at him. “She can’t do anything from in there. It’s like putting the genie back in the bottle.”

“You mean she’s not dead?” Sam frowned darkly. In his life as a hunter he’d learned that mistakes like this could prove deadly.

“Are you kidding?” Kappa asked, surprised. “Do you know how much she costs? They’ll try to put her right, or at least figure out what went wrong.”

“So it’s okay for a computer to kill people? She just needs a visit to the techno shrink?” Sam couldn’t believe what he was hearing.

Kappa sighed. “I don’t make the rules, Officer, I just have to follow them…no matter how much I’d like to deep fry this bitch.” There was a moment’s silence before he spoke again. “With the main power down, there’ll be no ventilation.” He packed up his equipment. “The air’s going to start getting stale pretty soon.”

Sam nodded, understanding as he followed behind Kappa out of the Queen’s chamber to the steel corridor, to the control room, and onwards until they reached the specimen room once more---or what he liked to call the labyrinth of horror.

It looked even worse by the dim glow of the emergency lights.

Kappa continued in the lead as they headed through the giant room, but the deeper they went, the greater the sense of unease curled inside of Sam’s gut.

Something just wasn’t right.

It was as if the specimens seemed to be watching them.

Leering at them.

There was a sudden flash of movement, a glimpse of something hideous seen through the curved glass of the specimen jars.

Sam flinched, turning towards it, pulling his gun out.

Had it just been a trick, a distortion of the glass, or was there something else in there with them?

The unease in his stomach became dread.

Sam slowed, almost stopping, without thinking he was holding his breath.

He could sense it.

Something terrible was about to happen.

Suddenly a hand came down on his neck, digging in, biting into the flesh.

Sam reacted on instinct, jerking away and turning around, aiming his gun at the one who’d touched him…only to deflate in relief when he realized it was only J.D. He and Rain were still where One had left them, guarding the retreat.

“Quiet.” J.D. told Sam and Kappa.

They all listened.

Sam frowned, hearing the faint sound.

There was the sound of rapid, desperate footsteps coming towards them.

Sam turned towards the sound, gun trained in the direction of the approaching footsteps, and froze when the terrified figure came into sight.

She was…beautiful.

The light of the emergency lights seemed to gather around her, leaving a sort of glowing effect, especially around her golden hair. She was short, with a hint of curves beneath her flowing lab coat, and utterly terrified.

She stopped when she saw them, eyes wide in horror, holding a broom like it was a scythe.

J.D. and Rain lowered their guns immediately. “A survivor.”

“They talk…oh thank god!” The woman breathed a breath of utter relief before racing towards them. “Don’t put down your guns! Don’t put them down! They’re behind me!”

The team frowned and trained their guns towards the direction where she’d come, not sure what she was talking about.

And then they heard it.

The shuffle of feet?

Yes.

And a low moaning noise.

Almost human.

Almost.

“What is that?” Kappa asked, pulling out his own gun shakily.

“It’s the sound Officer Dean heard earlier.” Rain replied, body tense.

“What the fuck is going on here, lady?” J.D. asked the unknown blonde scientist.

“We need to get out of here.” Her voice was trembling in her fear. “You can’t---there’re too many!”

“There.” Rain announced, seeing movement behind one of the specimen tanks. “Over there.”

“No…” J.D. noticed movement elsewhere. “There!” He saw another.

Whatever they were, there were all around.

“What the fuck is down here?” Kappa asked.

“I’m not waiting to find out!” J.D. snapped. “Now move!” He pushed them towards the exit.

“We’re almost there!” Rain encouraged. “Keep going!”

The exit was just ahead.

Something big moved behind one of the tanks and J.D. let loose a burst from his M16. The tank shattered, sending broken plexi and fluid everywhere.

And yet they still hadn’t seen their pursuers.

“Run!” J.D. screamed.

They did.

But suddenly a woman stepped out in front of them, blocking their path. She was wearing a lab coat, identical to the one the shivering blonde next to them was wearing. But this woman’s tongue was swollen and bloated, her eyes hazy and an abnormal blue, and when she opened her mouth only an inhuman screech came out.

Sam froze.

He’d hunted for most of his life, but he’d never seen anything like this before.

So not my day.” The blonde at his side whispered.

He decided he couldn’t have agreed more.

I bet Bobby's seen something like that. 'Cause Bobby's that awesome.

But enough of my Bobby-worship. Way to ratchet up the suspense. I saw the zombie chase was coming, but you haven't even really started the chase. Hopefully Sam and/or Chloe will come close to Bobby-level awesome.
