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.
Once they hot-wired a car and made it to the site Lana had told them the helicopter would be at, subtly was not needed.
The fight was already underway.
Chloe, Sam and Nicholai hurried into the fray, trying to help their friends as they fought off Umbrella security guards.
Chloe dove into the black, protective suits, and shared a look with a relieved and pissed Lois before the blonde grabbed the helmet of the closest guard and swung it around, the sound of his neck breaking echoing in her ear as she grabbed his baton and turned on the security guards hurrying towards her. She'd never held a baton before, much less fought with one, and yet her body was going through the motions, slamming helmets and breaking bones.
Chloe's mind was having a hard time keeping up with what her body was doing.
It tried to rationalize, to come up with an explanation for how she could do the things she was doing.
Stealing another baton, she twirled them in her hands, realizing that there was no one standing around her anymore.
They were all on the ground.
At her hands.
She dropped the batons.
What was happening with her?
How-how was she doing this?
Suddenly Lois screamed, as a bullet pierced through her shoulder, and she fell to the ground.
"Lois!" Chloe rushed to her side.
"That's enough." A voice rang out. "Put your weapons down and surrender, or the little girl gets it in the head."
Everyone stopped, looking for the voice, finally seeing the man as he appeared around the corner, armed guards flanking him on every side.
"We've been expecting you." The handsome blonde man, with the hunt of an accent, stood, eyes on Chloe.
"This was a trap." Jill hissed.
"No." Chloe shook her head. "Lana would never-."
"Mrs. Luthor didn't realize she was being monitored, that she was playing into our plans." The man replied as his men flanked them, taking their weapons and securing them with plastic handcuffs. "As were you."
The ground shook, and out of the mist appeared 'Project Nemesis'.
"Kappa?" Rain whispered, horrified to see what had become of her colleague.
The creature Kappa had now become showed no signs of having even heard her.
"Who are you?" Chloe stood, shielding her cousin's body, eyes narrowed on the blonde man. "What do you want?"
"Oh, where are my manners?" The man in charge tilted his head with an amiable smile. "I am Major Cain."
Suddenly bright overhead lights blared on, blinding them for seconds as their eyes adjusted from the darkness to the light.
"Discard primary weaponry." Major Cain ordered Nemesis, the creature obeying, lowering that damned rocket launcher he carried around with him.
"How could you let this happen to him?" Chloe whispered, unable to believe that this was the same man who had survived the Hive with her, Sam, and Rain. "If your people had just let me administer the antidote to him-!"
"He was never a good soldier, not as a human." Major Cain interrupted her, hands clasped behind his back. "But now? Now he is a true soldier-maybe the best."
"He didn't want this!" Chloe snarled at him, and would have thrown herself at him if she wasn't restrained by the plastic handcuffs, and by the guard holding onto her from behind.
"I do not hear him complaining." Major Cain mocked.
"Can he even talk?" Chloe felt like crying. "I bet you took out his vocal cords. That's how Lex likes his test subjects-unable to scream."
Hadn't Lex done the same thing to her?
The only thing was that her vocal cords had always re-grown.
"What does it matter?" Major Cain wanted to know, a smirk on his face. "What should matter to you, is that the little group you have helped make it this far survive to see the morning."
Chloe went cold. "What do you want?"
"I want you to fight him." The blonde male swept his arm out towards Nemesis.
"Chloe don't do it!" Lois yelled.
"Are you insane?" Sam hissed. "That thing will kill her!"
"You have very little faith in your comrade." Major Cain mocked.
"What the fuck is wrong with you man? She's like ninety pounds!" Dean struggled against his binds. "That thing is like 300! There's no fucking way that you can think that that is a fair fight!"
"What I think does not matter." Major Cain replied. "What I know on the other hand, does." His gaze leveled on Chloe. "And I know that if you do not win this fight, Nemesis will tear your friends limb from limb, and take extra time on your beloved cousin, making sure she truly suffers before dying."
Chloe snarled. "If you put one hand on her-!"
"I won't do anything. Nemesis will." The man smirked, in control and knowing it. "So, Chloe Sullivan, you have a choice. Kill a friend, or kill your cousin." He leaned forwards. "Which shall it be?"
"Chloe don't even think about it!" Lois ordered. "Chloe!"
"Your cousin doesn't have that nifty little ability that you have." Major Cain reminded Chloe in a soft voice that only they could hear. "If she dies, she'll remain dead, and you know where she'll most probably end up." He trailed a gloved finger under her chin. "She has killed before, hasn't she?"
"I'm going to rip your balls out and shove them down your throat before this night's over." Chloe hissed.
"There's our little killer." He chucked her chin before motioning to the man behind her. "Release her."
She felt the plastic being sliced, and Chloe yanked away, rubbing her wrists, glaring viciously at Cain before turning to Nemesis, her expression falling. "Kappa." She took a step towards him. "Kappa...can you hear me?"
With a growl that wasn't human, Nemesis attacked, fist swinging in her direction.
Chloe ducked and dodged every punch and kick her way, tripping a couple of times and yet righting herself in time to dodge another attempt. "Kappa! It's me! Chloe!"
His nest punch landed, slamming into her shoulder and sending her down, hard.
Grunting in pain, Chloe gave a yelp and rolled quickly to the side, his heavy, combat boot coming down so hard where her head had been seconds ago that the floor cracked.
"Kappa! Stop it!" Rain yelled from where was was being restrained. "Please Kappa! Stop it!"
But Nemesis wasn't reacting to the sound of her voice.
Chloe swung out of the way and grabbed his arm, using the momentum to pull him towards her, the move unbalancing him and she kneed him in the mouth of his stomach.
She then punched him and pushed away, in time for him to land a punch to her face.
Crying out at the pain she didn't allow herself to flinch, to hold her face as she wanted to, instead countering with a roundhouse kick that sent him skidding backwards with its strength.
"How did she do that?" Carlos whispered. "She shouldn't have the strength to push him around like that."
Nemesis roared, furious, attacking once more.
He moved to punch her, his fist coming in towards the left side of her head.
Chloe stepped in towards him with her left foot, and dropped down onto her right knee, using her left forearm to block the punch and push it up over her head. At the same time her right hand swung out and upwards to strike up into his groin with her palm. As the strike made contact she immediately grabbed hold of his testicles and squeezed as tightly as possible, pulling her hand back towards her waist while standing back up, moving her left foot back in line with the right one.
Nemesis roared in agony as his scrotum tore.
Chloe's eyes widened and she hurried back a couple of steps.
"What the fuck was that?" Jill whispered.
Chloe wanted to know the same thing.
How the hell had she just done that?
Despite being in obvious agony, Nemesis charged her, roaring.
"Kappa please stop!" Chloe cried, trying to dodge the blows, but she wasn't fast enough, a kick connecting with her head, sending her flying into a nearby wall and disorienting her with a flash of bright hot pain.
"Chloe!" Someone screamed.
She couldn't tell who.
The voice seemed so distorted to her.
Suddenly she was grabbed by her throat and slid up the wall so high that her feet didn't touch the ground.
Chloe tried desperately to breathe, to claw her way free, to look into Kappa's only visible eye, to get through to him.
But she couldn't.
Because that wasn't Kappa anymore.
It was Nemesis.
And if she died, he'd use the time for her resurrection to work...to kill everyone.
Grabbing hold of that arm and using it for leverage, Chloe pulled herself up in a kick, her boot connecting with his head.
Nemesis dropped her, disoriented, and Chloe acted fast, not even sure what she was doing as her arms crossed and she stepped forwards, placing both index fingers into the corner of his mouth and forcefully pushing her arms forwards and outwards, splitting Nemesis' cheek from the corner of the mouth up towards the ears. Her hands then turned around to grab hold of the holes that served as his ears, and forcefully retracted and uncrossed, tearing them as well. She then struck down slightly across the body onto the bridge of his nose with the heel of one hand, breaking the nose. And with the palm of her other hand, Chloe struck upwards onto the tip of his nose, driving shards of broken bone back into his brain.
Nemesis stood still for a moment before he collapsed loudly onto the ground.
There was silence so thick, one could hear the moaning of the undead in the city around them.
"Do you understand now how important you are to me?" Major Cain asked softly from behind her. "That creature was one thing, but you? You are magnificent."
"What's happening to me?" Chloe whispered, unable to turn away from Nemesis' body, unable to look at Major Cain. "What did Lex do to me?"
"You're not mutation, Chloe, you never were. And Mister Luthor knew that. You're special. You're different. You're evolution." He stepped forwards. "With my help, just imagine what you can achieve."
Chloe turned to him finally.
"Come with me." Major Cain held out his gloved hand.
"You can't be serious." Chloe shook her head at him. "I'm not going anywhere with you."
"What if it means that your friends can leave in the helicopter?" Major Cain asked.
Chloe froze. "What?"
"Don't listen to him Chloe!" Sam snarled.
"Mister Luthor is offering you a deal. Come with us peacefully, and they can take the helicopter." Major Cain replied.
"They probably have it bugged to explode!" Lois snapped. "Don't listen to him!"
"There is no bomb. There is however a camera installed so that you can watch, live, what goes on in the helicopter so you know that they arrive safely." Major Cain shook his head.
"Why?" Chloe asked. "Why offer them the helicopter?"
"We have another waiting for us on top of that building." The Major motioned. "And as I said, we were expecting this." He smiled. "We know of your plans, to send them to the Space Station. They will be no bother for us there. And even if they do tell people what happened here, who will believe them? Umbrella-our work is life."
And it didn't help that Terri's video camera had gotten destroyed in the fight.
"Surely you cannot ask for more." Major Cain announced, looking to the skies. "You must hurry. The time is nearly here."
Chloe shook, terrified at the thought of going back to Lex's lab.
She could remember every time they drilled into her, cut her open, made her scream.
"Chloe don't you dare!" Lois ordered.
"Think of your cousin." Major Cain whispered. "Think of the child."
"Deal." Chloe whispered.
"Chloe no!" Lois screamed. "I won't go! I won't let you do this!"
The blonde turned to the brunette. "Lois, you're the only one who knows how to pilot that thing. You're the only one who knows the way to access the subway. You're the only one who knows how to ready the space ship. You have to go. Peoples lives depend on this. On you."
"I won't leave you." Lois whispered, eyes filling with tears. "Don't make me leave you."
Chloe's eyes filled as well, and she wiped them away. "Whatever they're going to do, they need my cooperation, there's no other reason for why they're offering you all a chance-why they're the deal."
"Chloe-." Sam started.
"No." Chloe shook her head. "Don't-don't say anything. I made my choice. I was never going to go to the Space Station anyway."
"What?" Lois whispered in horror.
"We need to go." Major Cain turned to Chloe. "Now."
The blonde nodded, as the guards released the hostages.
Lois stood, shoulder injured, crying as she stared at Chloe. "I'm going to find you."
And with that she turned and raced into the helicopter.
Chloe's gaze turned to Dean's.
The demon nodded, understanding what she was telling him, and reassuring her that he would keep his promise.
As the others boarded the helicopter, Sam stayed behind, just looking at her.
Chloe gulped. "Goodbye."
His eyes narrowed. "See you soon."
And with that he entered the helicopter, the door sliding shut behind him.
Chloe watched as it rose into the air.
"Come. We have little time." Major Cain ordered.
Chloe nodded, numbly following the armed men as they escorted her to the building all the way to the top, where another helicopter was indeed waiting on them. She sat down, silently accepting the small monitor in which she could see inside of the helicopter her friends had left in. As promised, during the long flight, she could constantly see what was going on inside of the helicopter, and watched as it landed safely on the rooftop of Watchtower, Star City.
She didn't know what happened after they left the helicopter.
She didn't need to know.
They'd made it.
That was all that mattered.
"You made the right decision." Major Cain assured her.
She didn't answer, just hugged her knees to her chest and closed her eyes until they finally landed.
When the door slid open, the first thing she saw was Lex Luthor, in a white suit, smiling at her. "Welcome home."
And that was how she knew for sure that she'd gone to hell.
