With the crash of Umbrella Corp., the t-virus leaked onto the
black market. They knew they couldn't get it all off, they
just left it. They thought nothing would be as bad
as Raccoon City, they were wrong. Just one year later
an outbreak occurred in a village in Africa called
Sheba. This village would be known to the world as the
second Raccoon City.
Smoke was thick in the air, corpses lay scattered among the ground in counts of hundreds. A building first floor stood boarded up with anything that could be used. The building was surrounded by upwards of 400 people. However, you see these were not your ordinary by-standards, no, these were living dead. They grunted and groaned with every movement of their tattered bodies. They stood bloody with bits of flesh missing here and there, some with so much as missing limbs. They all surrounded the house trying the hardest to get in like a group of homeless people trying to seize a twenty-dollar bill out of a cage. The only reason these, zombies, gathered is that they could tell. They could hear the three little hearts pounding and smell the blood rush through their veins.
"Alpha team to Command come in," a woman with frizzed black hair shouted into a walkie. Two others stood firing at zombies to keep them at bay.
"I'm out of ammo!" yelled one of them, the only male. He ran to the back trying to get more stuff to board up the windows. The last one kicked down a zombie that had managed to get in.
"Do they have the data yet? I don't think we'll last much longer," the last girl with bright blue eyes spoke as she shoot at more zombies and threw the man a few rounds to put be his gun.
"I don't know, I'm not getting any signal in here," she shouted back pulling out her gun to help.
"Well then duck," she said throwing a armed grenade towards the zombies. They all leapt at the nearest cover as it went off. Bits of zombie went everywhere splattering on the walls and floor. The girl with black hair and green eyes even got some on her.
"Ew, just plain ewwie Laura," she said with an annoyed tone trying to get the zombie splatter off her.
Giggling the girl, whose name must be Laura, spoke, "That's Anderson to you Private Jennifer." She stood back up stretching and reloaded her gun. "Status?"
"No signal from Command, mission still stands to collect the subject. Location seems to be the same as before," Jennifer stated looking towards the male, noting the uniform he wore at the moment had a nametag stitched into it reading "Private Calvin".
Calvin seemed a bit nervous speaking to Laura, so he spoke barely above a whisper, "Only a few clips of ammo left in total, it won't last very long with these numbers."
"Good," Laura nodded walking to a ladder that led to the roof. She climbed it with Jennifer and Calvin close behind.
"And what are we doing up here?" Jennifer questioned looking down at the zombies.
"Well, if we only have a few clips left, and the zombies don't seem to be able to fly of climb things. It's only natural to take the high route," Laura said while walking to one side and turning around.
"Wait wha-," Jennifer began and stopped, with a look of shock, as Laura took off at a run and jumped to the nearby building roof. She landed on her feet at a kneel and stood. She looked back at them and gave a notion for them to follow.
"No, nu-uh, you're crazy if you think I'm going to do that," Jennifer said just as Calvin began his jump. He landed with a stumble to his back but rolled back to his feet.
"Come on Jennifer, you're the last one. You can do it," Laura said getting a bit impatient. Jennifer groaned slightly as she walked to the far edge and turned. Taking a deep breath, she ran and jumped. Thud, she nailed the side and barely scrambled to grab the edge.
"Oh god, help me up!" she screamed in horror as she began to slip. Laura rushed to pull her up with Calvin taking a minute to react and rushed in as well. They both pulled her up just in time as a zombie tried to take a tasty bite out of her foot. "Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!"
"Come on, we got to get moving, don't want our subject to get eaten," Laura said and they began off again hopping roof to roof.
The group came upon a large church that was worn from age. They entered slowly scanning to see any sign of life. In the center of the room was a chair facing away and they could barely make out an outline of a human.
"Finally," Jennifer said running up to the chair. "Dr. Carder we've been looking for y—"
"Jennifer no!" Laura shouted to interrupt just as someone came up behind Jennifer and knocked her out. "Damn it."
Just then, two more came up from behind Laura and Calvin knocking both of them out to the cold hard ground
