PRESENT DAY Outbreak:

A few hours have passed since Beca had turned into the still restless, raging zombie she now was. She kept on thrashing and screaming nothing much to make out though. She couldn't form words nor' did anyone actually think she tried to. Chloe watched Beca not from very far but far enough that she would not tempt Beca to try and break free. Cynthia Rose and Stacie still weren't back but they had texted Aubrey and Chloe they were on their way back home with lots of metal bars to contain their Zombie Becs.

Chloe watched as Beca restlessly pulled on her restraints, not becoming tired anytime soon. Lily watched the restraints closely as she did thrash around. Aubrey stayed in her space and ignored them all, still not agreeing with this choice at hand. Jessica, Denise, and Ashley were now another pair of eyes on the thrashing girl. They winced and coward back whenever Beca screamed horribly loud. Emily just sat beside Chloe still uneasy, still unable to cry, and still not saying much since everything has happened. Everyone just watched the poor creature they knew that was Beca act like a trapped animal with rabies.

Uncomfortable as it was they all took turns singing softly to try and calm Beca's mind, hoping that maybe a little bit of her humanity was still there with them. All the Bella's have gone except for Aubrey and Chloe. Emily had tried with her self-written song 'Flashlight', the trio of girls tried singing songs from past sets to jog the girl's dead brain, and Lily just sang a song from her culture that no one else understood. It did however keep Beca quiet until she had finished singing, the silence upsetting the undead brunette.

"Aubrey?" Chloe called out, "have you seen Fat Amy?" No one had even noticed the disappearance of the Aussie since Beca had turned. Everyone looked around as Beca just made obscure grunting noises.

"No I haven't." Aubrey sighed and ran a hand through her messy blonde hair, "I wouldn't be surprised if she went to go get us some food though."

Everyone just kind of nodded then Emily spoke up, "Aubrey?"

"What?" She replied slowly

"You want to try singing to Beca to calm her down?" Emily asked softly, glancing at Beca who was trying to bite at her own hair.

"No." The blonde said bluntly going back to her room, "I have no desire to serenade a monster to calm her pits."

Beca screeched and thrashed around once again, this upsetting Chloe.

"Aubrey you made her upset!" The ginger looked towards her best friend with her hands on her hips, "just because she's a zombie now doesn't mean she isn't Beca!"

The blonde frowned and approached Chloe very closely. Her eyes glazed over and her hands formed as fists at her side. She breathed out slowly and annoyed.

"Chloe. That creature isn't Beca. It's a monster trapped in Beca's body. If you loved Beca like the other Bella's we would have gone through with our original plan when this was to happen." Aubrey spat at Chloe harshly

Chloe thought about that plan. They were to shoot the infected Bella in the head, singing their favorite song together for the last time. But unfortunately they disregarded this when it was Beca.

Chloe swallowed hard and gestured over to Beca. "We can't kill her. We can find a cure and get our Beca back. Why don't you want that Aubrey?!" She cried out

"Because," the girl stated. "If she was meant to die. It should have happened." Aubrey looked away from the Bella's who had let out soft gasps and dramatic sighs. "I'm going to the Treble's safe house and letting them know we have a Zombie Beca they have to worry about."

With that the blonde ex-captain left the Bella's safe house the same time Cynthia Rose, Stacie, and Fat Amy got back. No one said a word since they all could hear the two fighting. The only sound filling the space was Beca's screams, screeches, and howls. Chloe winced each time Beca had screamed, she knew that the girl, zombie or not did not like being restrained. She still hadn't sung to the girl yet and now was better late than never. What did she want to sing though was the question. What song, artist, and lyrics would Zombie Beca might remember from before her transition. Then Chloe knew what she was going to sing to her love, to her undead, gross but still 'oh so loveable' Beca.

"Lily, I should be safe to get closer correct?" The ginger asked cautiously

Lily nodded and looked towards the other Bella's, "you sing to her and we'll build her Big Girl Zombie Cage." The usually quiet girl announced a little loud and happily.

As they got to work, Chloe approached the grunting Beca. Locking her light crystal blue eyes onto Beca's sickened black orbs that were her eyes. Beca went to thrash around again but Chloe gently placed her soft hand on the girl's arm. The zombie-fied Beca not sure on how to look at the gesture grunted again but quieter than before. Acting as if she was an injured animal whimpering at the gesture meant to be helpful. Chloe smiled down at the New Beca, trying to find a hint of her Old Beca but it wasn't her Beca. She was afraid she'd never see that cocky grinning, mad-lib beat, alternative, DJ again. With a small grasp of hope, Chloe began to sing the song she believed would bring some humanity to the New Beca to bring out her Old Beca.

You shout it out,
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud, not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

Carefully Chloe looked at Beca to see that the Zombie's eyes had lightened a little bit. She continued softly for the girl with more confidence.

I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium

Beca grunted loudly and her mouth formed weird shapes, Chloe thought this was a sign but was unsure. Tears had brimmed her eyes seeing that Beca, even though she was very undead was making the slightest bit of progress.

Cut me down
But it's you who'll have further to fall
Ghost town and haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I'm talking loud not saying much

Keeping her eyes on Beca's she watched as the eyes of the so-called 'monster' began to lighten up some more. The other Bella's unaware but Chloe taking in each part of this progression.

I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
I am titanium
I am
titanium

When Chloe thought she was going to see Beca form a word the door crashed open, disturbing both Chloe's hope and Beca's peace. The Zombie-fied brunette went back to her thrashing uneasy, screeching self as Chloe fell back. Aubrey walked in with a cursing Jesse.

"What do you think you Bella's are doing?!" He shouts at them all but mostly directed at Chloe.

Chloe frowned and stood back up, "saving your girlfriend!" She shouts back

Jesse chuckled and rubbed his face. "That monster is not my girlfriend! She isn't our Beca, Chloe. Open your eyes! She's suffering being tied down. When it comes time for her to eat what are you going to do?!" He scoffs, "he will want you or any Bella in sight."

Chloe furiously wiped away her tears, "she's still our Beca deep down. I was just singing to her and I saw it!" She choked out her sob

The other Bella's stood behind the distressed Chloe with crossed arms. It was Emily who spoke up then.

"You two are too blind to see the Beca that still remains in this undead version of her." Emily sighed and closed her eyes, "someday there will be a cure. Someday we'll have our Beca again."

Aubrey laughed and looked at Jesse. "She will never be the same," she looked at her Bella's. "She will never remember what has happened before any of this."

Chloe glared at Beca's boyfriend and her 'used-to-be' best friend and breathed out slowly. "Get out."

Aubrey looked at Chloe with disbelief, "Aca-Scuse me?"

"Get out!" She shouted at the two of them

"There has to be a majority ruling." Aubrey countered quickly in a panic

"Alright." Chloe frowned, "any Bella who wants Aubrey and Jesse to stay sing a G, any Bella who wants them gone sing a G#."

Chloe pulled out her pitch pipe and blew it, each Bella behind her singing a G# to their abilities. What amused them all Beca screeched after they had did so, as if she wanted to vote as well.

Chloe smirked and looked over at her 'ex' best friend and an unhappy Jesse as they left. The Bella's resumed building Beca's Big Girl Zombie Cage and Chloe turned to see a somewhat calm Beca. Smiling down at her, Chloe went to finish Titanium for her zombie love.

Stone-heart, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone heart loves bulletproof glass

Chloe sang out softly as she placed her hand back on Beca's arm like it had been before, Beca looking at her with her almost normal black eyes. The ginger moved her hand over where Beca's heart would be and rested it there as she finished the song up.

You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
I am titanium

And in that moment as Chloe sang that last note, under her hand where Beca's heart should be, she felt a single heartbeat, and her chest light up a light pink. The gesture quick and done Chloe froze up and knew this was a sign. She knew a zombie's heart could never beat but she just felt Beca's beat under her hand. She found her Old Beca and in time, she hoped to have that girl back soon.
