Chapter 02 – V3 Has Escaped.

Venom-Hush.(LongBanner)

24 hours before…

Fiona was also a scientist who had entered the laboratory, without any knowledge of what had happened to the researcher before her appearance. She was walking silently whilst keeping her steady gaze on the thick black file in her hands, which was A4 with about two hundred pages. All the experiments that had gone on within the past five years had been documented. This wasn’t the only document either – there was several more stacked away carefully.

She had also worn the same dress code as her co-worker and scientist researcher; all white and covered completely from head to toe. Her hazel eyes flickered from one page to another from behind the glass plating. She pressed a button – that was just under her left collarbone – and was greeted by a small but audible beep. A blue light illuminated the square button around the all sides, signaling that it was ready to be used. It was in fact a voice recorder, which had been given to her to work with.

Taking a turn in the huge, white room, she set the large file on the table where all the studying was done. More books and laptops and computers were stationed around this area. The only items that were colourful were the books and an odd hued laptop in blue. Heaving a sigh of relief that she had reached her workplace in time, she was just about to turn away, when a horrible stench caught her senses. Her nose scrunched up. As she followed the decayed stink she almost gagged from it, but forced herself to keep going.

“Sir?” Fiona called anxiously, trying to get a reply. “Sir, I have brought the file that you asked for this morning,” she explained, walking along after turning around a corner. There, she met the bloody scene that was causing the horrible smell. Her steps halted in horror.

On the ground lay her senior scientist researcher, half covered in the plastic sheet, which the third volunteer should have been walled around with. One side of the Professor’s face was bare, the left side, and the other side was bloody underneath the transparent sheet. Blood pooled from underneath it.

“Oh, no!” she cried out after a deadly pause. Her eyes widened in fear and disbelief. She covered her mouth with her hands.

Suddenly, confusion took over her and she frowned slightly. The table that should have been contained with V3 was empty. Where is the volunteer?! she thought, alert at once. She turned to her right and left, everywhere that she could manage to see. A blurry movement caught her peripheral vision of her right eye, just behind the white and tall filing cabinets. She swiftly looked there and waited, unsure at first, until she took her first step towards that area. “There seems to be … someone, or something else in hear,” she muttered, recording her voice continuously.

Suddenly, a hurtful groan came from behind her and she swiftly turned around to her the … previously assumed dead, man moving. She quickly moved to kneel down to his side. “A – Are you alright?” she asked. “I thought you were dead! You’re hurt! Where are you hurt, Sir? Should I get the…?” Her words trailed off as she observed the injured man cough up blood.

His eyes were closed as an angry and painful scream – which sounded strangely inhuman – echo throughout the room. The man’s body started convulsing and twitching violently. Shortly after, his movements stopped suddenly after coughing up more blood.

Fiona had moved back, away from the flailing scientist on the ground. “The Professor is going through – b – but he was dead … he was …” she said observantly, trying to understand what was happening in front of her.

Suddenly, the bloody mess stopped and nothing moved for the longest moment. It was only half a minute in actuality.

She got up the courage and moved, walking towards the unmoving man on the ground. Her eyesight caught an almost unperceivable twitch on his mouth. The glass on his helmet was crashed, she noticed, and was replaced by dangerous edges. Her breath was coming out in short and shallow gasps, her eyes wide in apprehension, and leaned down slightly. She saw ripped parts of flesh and bites where the protective garment should have been on him.

Something moved again, a blur, from her peripheral vision and she whipped her head around to see it. This time, however, she did see something move, but it was too fast for her to pin down on. It moved so speedily to her right, and then behind her, that it unnerved her to no end.

It was sizing her up.

She grabbed a metal rod – that the plastic was being held up with previously – and held it in her hands. It’s another infected, a Blood-Sucker, she thought knowingly. But when had they inherited so much speed?! This is interesting, very interesting. If only I can contain it!

It buzzed by her left. She quickly turned around, only to see nothing. It repeatedly continued down so until she swung her weapon in the air, earning a ‘whooshing’ sound. She had hit nothing each time she had tried to get the infected.

Suddenly, the glass door crashed and she saw that the Blood-Sucker had thrown himself through it. Then … he escaped.

“V3 has escaped,” she said anxiously. There is only one thing to do now… she thought, and was about add to that, when she heard more groaning to her left. She saw that the Professor was shifting again. She readied her weapon and tried not to tremble, but she couldn’t help it. This was her boss. Or more like had been. Now he was only a mutant … a blood-thirsty creature of the dead. The Undead. She almost laughed out loud from the hysteria building up inside her.

The zombie like creature opened his eyes and pushed its torso until it was sitting. The eyes were gleaming red and bloody at the same time. It looked demonic as the mouth opened up revealing sharpened, fang-like teeth. Then, it started to stand up but struggled since it was so weak. But the eyes were so alive, like fire blazing in a volcano. So much hunger was inside the eyes.

Fiona took this moment to whack the metal rod into the back of the Blood-Suckers skull. The creature fell onto his stomach as it was trying to get up again. It reached for her ankle. Screaming in fear, she recoiled, and hit him again repeatedly until the skull crashed. She had lost count on how many times she had hit and stopped abruptly, after seeing that it was no longer moving again.

All she could hear now was her own ragged breathing. “Now he is dead. I killed him. I had to. He was infected.” Wiping the sweat from her forehead, she threw the metal on the ground with a loud ’clang.’ Tears of fear and frustration trailed their way down her cheeks as she fled the lab.

Everything felt strange to her now, as if she was in a strange state of shock and yet her brain was working enough to get herself out. The infected had escaped only to infect and turn more. Her steps halted before the broken glass of the door to turn around to look around for the last time. The bloody mess was still on the floor, dead and gone, for good.

She turned back around and stepped over and past the broken shards of glass, through the jagged glass of the door, and on to the other side. There was more blood splattered against the floor and walls, leading all the way down the corridor. She had to inform the authorities. She had to tell them what had happened as soon as possible.

Her hand hit the squared mechanism on her chest and it beeped again. “To Headquarters,” she announced, forcing her voice to stay steady, “The Research Lab has been infected and can no longer be used. V3, the infected, has escaped also after infecting and turning the Professor in process. On its way out of the lab it has probably bit many, many others – the blood testifies it.” She set her lips in a firm line as she observed the dead bodies littered.

Soon there were faraway screams.

“Get me airborne, now!” she ordered, her eyes were begging though. “I am no longer safe, nobody is. I need help at once!”

“Get to the top floor – the roof – and wait,” someone replied finally. “Help will arrive in five minutes.”

“That may be too late,” she stated. As she reached the end of the corridor, she was met with glossy, red stairs. Almost every inch of the surface was spilling with warm blood as victims that were laid over the stairs. She changed her course and hurried past the stairs and went through the emergency exit. She ascended the tripled amount of staircases and had finally reached the top exit door. Walking through it, she was met with the chilling, morning air.

“I’m here,” she announced, thankfully breathing in the clean air, and shut the door after her.

The sky was cloudy and grey with plenty of clouds congregating together to blast their tears upon the earth, like a massive water fountain. There was a god chance that it was going to rain anytime soon.

“Sit tight,” the voice advised. “Stay in touch.”

“No problem,” she replied.

Suddenly, the door started moving from the other side. There were noises. Hisses and groans. At first she had thought that there were people on the other side, but as she started to listen more clearly, she realised that they were no longer human. They were infected also and were turning and, as one would begin to turn, their hunger would grow along to the point that in would be in controllable. She should know.

A similar thing had happened with V1 and V2…

“Ah, you better send them as soon as possible,” she gasped, stepping backwards whilst facing the door. It was being banged on by the infected from the other side. “Otherwise you won’t find me as the same Fiona Rai Anderson again.”
