Summary: They made it out of the Hive, but now Racoon City is closed off, and they need get out before its destroyed. Demons, Undead, Umbrella, Chloe's new strand of mutation, and a slowly budding romance with Sam. Oh My.
Ravens Gate Bridge was the main entrance and exit to Raccoon City, which was why the traffic had been backed up for miles as everyone tried to run. All of the cars were abandoned now, their inhabitants having fled on foot to try and get to the bridge and get out of there. It looked just like every Apocalyptic movie Chloe had ever watched, and it also echoed the memories of the Apocalypses that Chloe had had to help save with the Justice League before they'd been murdered.
Chloe remembered Raccoon City from her previous visit to the place, but this wasn't anything as she remembered it.
As she and the others carefully, silently, walked down the streets, the blonde kept her gun trained ahead of her.
Those things-the undead-they were out there.
Even if they had yet to see any, she knew it was true.
The blonde lowered her head, clenching her jaw.
When she'd infiltrated the hive to try and steal the T-virus to expose Lex Luthor for what he truly was, the virus had already been stolen by a demon possessing a human host, and it was the demon who'd locked Chloe up and let loose the virus in with her. Chloe had her lungs filled with the purest strands of the T-virus, and it was only because of her meteor power that she'd come back...normal.
Then again, she really wasn't normal, was she?
Something had happened in the Hive, something she hadn't shared with anyone.
Somehow, she seemed to have bonded with the T-virus.
And somehow, that meant she had somehow bonded with the undead.
Oh, they weren't offering her cups of tea or worshipping the ground around her or even just ignoring her as they did their own race...but twice now Chloe had managed to connect with the virus inside of the undead and use it against them...rewire it so that the undead obeyed her. Fought for her. She'd been able to see the virus and change it somehow and the undead had turned on their own, destroying all those around her until they themselves had been destroyed by their own kind.
If Lex's scientists had conducted experiments on her after her recapture in the Hive-if they'd realized she had that sort of ability-Lex would have never let her go this time. He'd always had an unhealthy fixation with her mutation, and she'd died too many different ways because of his fascinated curiosity as to if she would resurrect from any death.
So far she'd proven that yes, she could, even if the resurrection times were different.
It scared her, though, to think of what Lex might do when he reviewed the tapes from the Hive and saw that she'd ingested two lung-fulls of the T-virus.
He'd want to recapture her.
Experiment on her some more.
Cut her up and see how inside was ticking now that the T-virus was inside.
Then again, she had the suspicion that Lex was dead.
And if some undead hadn't done it, Chloe's money was on Lana.
It was Lana Luthor who had given Chloe and Lois the inside information about what was going on in Umbrella and had given Chloe everything she needed to infiltrate the Hive.
If Lana felt desperate and disgusted enough, Chloe didn't put it passed her to help her husband have an unfortunate accident.
Hearing a sound, Chloe turned, gun trained, to see someone slowly emerge from the shadows.
Her eyes widened. "Mickey?"
"Sonofabitch." Lois hissed, cocking her gun. "As if Raccoon City didn't have enough scumbags walking around you're here too?"
"You know him?" Rain, one of the other survivors of the Hive asked, gun trained.
"Who is he?" Sam, the other survivor, asked.
Chloe frowned, lowering her gun. "Hey Mickey, what the hell is going on?"
He continued to come towards her. "Chloe...help...me..."
Her eyes narrowed. "What the fuck's going on Mickey?"
And that was when she noticed the large chunk of flesh bitten out of his neck.
"Fucking hell!" Rain noticed it at the same time. "He's infected!"
"Oh you've got to be screwing me." Lois whispered, eyes widening. "You means its possible for you to get infected?"
He snarled and lunged at Chloe but she side-stepped him and kicked his back, sending him to the ground, before stepping down hard on him, keeping him pinned and secure.
"It's...the suit got...I can't...get out."
"The irony is so delicious." Chloe chuckled, shaking her head. "You can't get out."
"Chloe?" Sam asked, looking between them, frowning. "How can he still talk? What's going on?"
"I thought you'd realize this, being a friend of demons and all." Chloe sneered, looking up at him. "Mickey's meatsuit got infected, and the infection is tying him into his body. He can't get out." She shook her head. "He's losing the battle, and will soon just be another undead fucker."
"He's a demon?" Sam whispered, shocked.
"Shoot me." Mikey snarled. "Kill the suit! Free me!"
"The suit's already dead, baby." The blonde taunted him.
"Wait, when you say demon what exactly do you mean?" Rain wanted to know, eyes narrowed.
"Scum from hell that raise up and take possession of our bodies so they can do their dastardly deeds?" Lois supplied.
"Why do you think I was so accepting of the fact that Ruby's a demon, Sam? Why I didn't question your sanity?" Chloe asked, a little disappointed that he hadn't figured it out or at least suspected. "I've dealt with them before. More times than I would like to admit to, actually." Her eyes then widened in sudden realization and she turned her attention back to Mickey. "Does the offer still stand?"
He snarled, but nodded.
"Good." She shot him in the back of his head, his body going lax. The blonde then turned to the others. "Okay, I need to go to the mall over there. You should go on towards Ravens Gate Bridge without me. I'll catch up with you later."
"Fuck that." Lois snorted. "I'm coming with you."
Chloe turned to the others.
"I'm coming along too." Rain shrugged. "Call me crazy, but, hello, demon. I need to know more about this."
Sam's eyes narrowed. "We need to talk."
"Not right now we don't." Chloe replied, beginning to walk away towards the large mall complex down the block. "I'm going to be a little busy going to hell."
Walking into her apartment, Jill glanced at the board on her wall with the different newspaper clippings with her face on them. They all spoke of the S.T.A.R.S. officer who had been disgraced and suspended. They never said anything about her partner Leon, his death, or how Umbrella was involved in any of that. Of course not, Umbrella was always the godsend, never the devil.
She leaned forwards and turned on her police radio scanner, turning the dial slowly.
All the channels had chaos and confusion.
She'd tried to warn them, tried to tell them that this could happen.
But they hadn't believed her.
They'd left her in disgrace.
And now they were paying for it.
The raven-haired woman sat down on the bed, sighing, leaning forwards and resting her arms on her knees.
"All officers or law enforcement personnel are required to report for duty assignments immediately." The woman on the radio declared.
Jill stood immediately, having waited for this call.
She armed herself and headed out, making it to the police station in time to walk into the chaos and screams as police officers tried to handcuff zombies, and instead were getting their necks bitten off.
Pulling out her gun, she shot, people screaming and ducking as the undead fell, one bullet to their forehead.
"Hold your fire, it's Valentine!" Someone called.
"Valentine!" The chief yelled, coming towards her.
"They're infected." She told him calmly, checking her magazine.
"Somebody get this bitch away from me!" A guy handcuffed to a bench yelled as a hooker zombie (handcuffed to the opposite side of the bench) tried to best to lean forwards enough so she could bite him.
"I told you." Jill continued to tell the chief. "Shoot for the head." She then turned and shot, the zombie sagging to the ground. Jill then shot the handcuff on the man, breaking it.
He looked up at her in awe.
"I'm leaving town." She announced in a raised voice so everyone could hear. "I suggest you do the same."
And with that she walked away.
"Let me get this straight." Sam frowned as Lois and Rain tied Chloe to a chair in the middle of the furniture store. "You think you can get in and out of hell."
"I don't think I can." Chloe winced as the rope burned. "I know I can. I've done it before."
"Though, technically, she's only done it when she's died." Lois murmured, pulling off Chloe's boots and sticking her feet into a large, deep container filled with water.
"Died?" Rain looked up. "What are you talking about?"
"They don't know?" Lois blinked.
"Sam found out." Chloe took in a deep breath...the water was cold. "I haven't had the time to mention it to Rain."
"Make time." The Latina declared, standing up. "Mention it."
"I'm a mutant. I come back alive when I get killed." Chloe summarized. "Of course, it's not instantaneous, so I have to go somewhere while my mutation's gearing up for action."
"Hell." Sam frowned. "What have you ever done to deserve-."
"I've killed people." She responded curtly. "And I'd do it again."
"They deserved it." Lois announced faithfully.
"Undead, demons, mutants..." Rain shook her head. "Is there anything else I don't know of?"
"He's not a cop." Chloe motioned with her chin (since everything else was tied up) towards Sam. "He's a hunter, which means he hunts the supernatural."
Rain eyed him.
Sam cleared his throat. "And my last name's Winchester. Dean was my brother."
There was a pause as Rain eyed every single one of them before turning her gaze on Chloe.
"Now am I up to speed?" The Latina wanted to know.
"As far as I know, yes." Chloe nodded.
"Okay, good." Rain nodded, taking everything pretty well. "Now, tell me, how are you going to do this? Go to hell? And why exactly do you want to go to hell in the first place?"
"All very good questions I myself am asking." Sam agreed. "And why are you tied up?" His gaze went to the container. "And in water?"
"As Sam said: All very good questions." Chloe nodded, taking in a deep breath as she closed her eyes. "I might even answer them when I get back."
And then, the ground underneath her burst into flames...and she was gone.
