Episode 2– Time to go Shopping and What's that, an Alien?
(The following takes place between the Atrium (L4D2) and the Riding Shotgun (H-L2)
The Atrium Level
The Team (Survivors, Freeman, Alyx) were suggesting that they get a vehicle to move faster.
"I think we should use a truck" Alyx suggested.
The Survivors did not agree.
"How bout' Jimmy Gibbs Jr.'s racecar" suggested by Ellis
The Survivors agreed.
"But the car has only four seats! How will six fit inside?" Alyx argued.
"Well, you two can just… uh…." Coach replied
"So you don't know? We should've just taken the truck" Alyx angrily said
"Fine!" Nick shouted
The six went to the parking lot. They only saw a van parked inside.
"Well guys, what do you think? Should we use a van instead?"
The Survivors agreed.
"Well, okay. BUT, you or Gordon will be driving that crap." Nick insisted
"That's fine by me. How about you Gordon?" Alyx asked, Gordon nodded yes
They went inside the van, killing the infected while outside. They searched for the key but they found nothing.
"Does anybody know how to hotwire this thing?" Alyx asked
"Get out of the way woman!" Nick shouted while reaching for the cords.
After a few seconds, the van started.
"There!" Nick said
"Could we move now cause' there a tank behind us!" Ellis shouted
The van turned to the road and started to accelerate with The Tank only a few meters away.
"Phew! So, where do we go now?" Rochelle asked
"To a Resistance Outpost. We'll get some supplies there and then move out." Alyx replied

They drove to the forest for hours but as they got to a nearby barn, the engine failed.
"It's busted. Do I have to fix it?" Ellis asked
"No, were here. Umm, why don't the four of you stay here in case we're ambushed." Alyx insisted as she saw an crashed Advisor Pod in a distance.
Gordon and Alyx went inside the house leaving the Survivors outside.
"I'm not going to take any chances waiting for the line." Nick said and followed them inside
When Nick went into the basement, he saw an alien pinning Gordon and Alyx to a wall.
He wanted to help but just as he was going to shoot, the alien fled.
He watched as both of them coughed. He came in and shouted
"What was that thing?"
"It's… an Advisor." Alyx replied
"We're saved!" a voice from outside was heard
The three came out to see a Hunter-Chopper above them.
"Run, Quick!" Alyx shouted
They ran from the chopper and hid in the woods.
"*pant*pant* What… was that again?" Nick asked
"It's… a Hunter… Chopper. They're hunting us… down." Alyx said
"Are you two criminals?" Coach suspiciously asked
"No. We're being hunted by aliens. They're called the Combine. Some of them looks human but they wear masks to conceal it so be careful." Alyx stated
"Where do we go now?" Coach asked
"To another Outpost. I'm sure that there's not another enemy there!" Alyx said
Alyx turned to Gordon, she saw him choking.
"Hey Doc', what's wrong?" Ellis asked
Gordon suddenly stopped choking and…
