Goodnight my love Pt 3
 
Moose walks towards Melanie's room but is stopped by the man he saw in the elevator. "You!" Moose says to himself, the man is standing across the broken narrow hall. The myserious man toy's with Moose by taunting him with his devilish smirk. "You peice of shit!" Moose says in a hush tone trying not to alert anyone, "Who are you!" Moose says louder walking slowly towards this mysterious man but he stays quiet still smirking. "Answer my question!" Moose yells now in anger from the man's silence. "Hey who's there!!" one of the guards says from the other side of the hallway. Moose turns around to see if he has been spotted. "Hey come over here, we are just trying to help you!" the guard says from afar trying to comfort Moose. "Goddamnit!" Moose turns back to see the man running away and chases after him. 
 
Moose finds himself around the corner from Melanie's room that had more abandoned rooms but the walls were covered in bullet holes and blood, the floor was piled by bodies of recently turned victims. Moose held back his vomit and see's the man run into a room at the far end of the hall. Carefully trying not to touch the bodies Moose proceeds after him and charges into the room. Once inside Moose see's the room was empty, the walls were plain blue with yellow rubber duckies repeating around the top of the wall, the floor was clean and the bed was made. Moose was confused this room seems so clean and in order. Moose walks towards the bed and lays his daughter on the soft body carressing memory foam bed. "It's okay Samantha, daddy is here." Moose says to his fast asleep daughter. "It's okay." he says as he sits on the bed with the baby. "Who is that guy?!" Moose thinks "Why does he keep showing up?" 
 
Moose hears a creaking sound but doesn't know where it's coming from. "What the?" He says as the creak happens again but it's clearly heard in the closet next to the bed. Moose gets up and walks to the door cautiously. He grabs the knob and twists it open slowly in fear of what can be in there. The door is open and Moose feels a force pushing from the otherside as if something was trying to get out, Moose steps back and the door swings open banging against the wall loudly, the room is now filled with a repulsing oder as if somthing died, and something did die. Moose looks down to see a body laying face down right next to his feet. Moving away from the body Moose covers his nose with his hands in disgust. "Gah fuck, what the hell!" Moose backs away from the body and looks at from a distance. He notices that it was a male doctor considering he was wearing a long white coat but it's stained with blood. Suddenly Moose hears a gaurd "I think i heard it over here sir!" the guard yells alerting more guards. "Fuck!" Moose whispers, he looks to the bed and covers his daughter with the bed's freshly made blanket and hides her, then he moves towards the entrance of the room shuts off the lights then hides behind the entrance door. Footsteps march towards the room Moose is in, tension fills the air as the guard opens the door to the pitch black room only seeing what the flickering lights of the hallway gave off. "Where is that damn light switch?" the guard says looking around not notcing Moose crouching right next to him, Moose can tell by the way this guy talked he was very young and most likely was a rookie, the guard finds the light switch and turns on the lights. 
 
Moose pounces from behind the guard knocking him down, Moose turns him around and pushes his helmet off quickly "Back...." He attempts to yell for help but is hushed by a crucial blow to the face from a very angry Moose. The guard is being beaten senseless by Moose's fists which have been trained by handling heavy machineary and guns for over ten years, punch after punch Moose notices the guard is'nt struggling anymore and gets off of him. Moose wipes the young guard's blood off his fists and examines his incapacitated body searching through his pockets for something useful. "Bullets, knife, keys?" Moose pulls the items and piles them on the doctor's desk. Moose looks at this young man's face now, his nose was crooked and possibly broken, both eyes closed but his right eye is puffed up and bleeding. He was drooling a mixture of blood and saliva, "What have i done?" Moose says getting up and shaking his head in disbelief. "I took my anger out on this poor kid." Moose thinks "I'm a monster!" suddenly Moose hears his daughter whimpering and rushes to her, "It's okay baby." Mooses holding her in his arms keeping her warm. She begins to Coo and blow spit bubbles, Moose smiles at his closed eyed baby daughter making noises but then Moose hears another noise rustling from the otherside of the bed, Moose puts down his daughter and checks to see whats the rustling.
 
Moose looks over to see the dead corpse of the doctor crawling towards Moose, "Oh no you don't!" Moose gets up off the bed push kicks the doctor's head with a great force, making a very unsatisfying crunch. The doctor's neck twists around and his head is now on backwards, Moose shutters as the corpses spine is sticking out and it's head dangling backwards. Moose looks at the deformed corpse crawling in place not knowing what it's presuing but it was using all it's strength. "Moose closes his eyes and turns around. The guard's walkie talkie was begining to static and then Moose heard it. "Welcome to hell." The voice was so clear. It was that man, the man that had been taunting Moose all night. Moose grabs the walkie and holds the talk button in straight anger. "Listen to me you sick fuck." Moose responds very agrivated "Tell me who the hell you are right now!" He lets go of the talk button standing in anger waiting for a response but hears static. "Gary?" another voice responds throught the walkie talkie. "Gary was there anything in that doctor's room?" Moose holds the walkie in silence and shock, "Gary?" the voice questions "Gary you got to get back to the room, the evac chopper is getting here in like three minutes." Moose responds quickly "Who's leaving on the chopper?" "Geez Gary you must really be sick you voice sounds deeper." Moose repeats his question in a more angry tone. "Calm down man, were leaving the survivors to die here." Moose lets go of the walkie in pain and looks away. "But Ga said that if there are any pregnant survivors to take them right away and i'm in a room with a pregnant chick, we are going to get a sweet reward man." distinct voices are heard from the other walkie. "Okay... okay then. Greg get over here now for roll call, i got to go." he clicks and static fills the walkie. Moose grabs all the items he pulled from Greg's incapacitated body, grabbed his daughter and left the room with the deformed zombie crawling in circles. 
 
Moose moves around the corner to see Melanie's room is clear and makes a break for it still lying low to stay undetected. Moose makes it to Melanie's room and charges in. Moose see's the mother of his daughter laying in her bed looking as if she had been in a car accident. Looking down Moose see's Crystal and Max handcuffed by tiny plastic restraints. Moose hands Melanie the baby but she can't hold her because she has one arm handcuffed. "Fuck who did this to you?!" Moose asks, she looks down in pain and begins to cry again "Those assholes!" Searching his pockets Moose pulls out the key's that were in Greg's uniform. Melanie see's Moose and the keys and her face lights up in joy as she wipes her tears away. Moose unlocks the handcuffs and Melanie grabs her baby "Oh my little Zoey!" she says kissing her daughter, then pulls Moose in for a passionate kiss. "I missed you babe." Melanie says playfully "I missed you too babe." Moose responds giving her a quick peck. "Excuse me?!" Crystal says breaking the moment between the new parents. Moose looks at them then see's Jhonny's body right next to them and shutters "What happend to him?" Moose asks but crystal remains quite in agony "If you can untie us we can explain everything later." Max answers. Moose nods his in agreement and uses the scalple from Greg's disapointing back stabbing and cuts through Max's restraint but they all hear footsteps approching and begin to panic. Moose calmly hands Max the scalpel and gives him instructions on whats about to happen. "Okay when they barge in pretend like your still tied up and when they get close enough stab them and i'll back you up." Max takes the scalple and puts his hands behind his back to give the illusion of being tied up and Moose hides by the door. 
 
Two soliders barge in the room not wearing their helmets and shut the door behind them passing Moose hiding behind a medical cart. "Okay GA said the pregnant one only." The clean cut solider says as he walks towards Crystal. Max springs up and jabs the medical cutting scalple into the soliders eye throwing him backwards to the floor. The other guard pulls out his pistol but Moose pops up and grabs the other guard pulling him backwards and brings him to the floor. The guard lays on the floor dazed only to see Moose pick him up and pin him to the wall. "Now listen to me!" Moose says stopping to read his name "Diaz." Max unties Crystal and they help Melanie up from her bed. "You are going to tell me what the fuck is happening RIGHT NOW!" Diaz pushes Moose away and grabs his gun but Moose pulls out his gun he got from the security guard earlier and aims Diaz down. Diaz chuckles and points his gun at his top right of his head and yells. "IN THE NAME OF GA!!!" Diaz fires a round through his brain as his corpse leans to the floor starting a lake of blood around him. Moose puts down his gun and shakes his head in dissapointment. "Come on we gotta go!" Max says as he holds Crystal and they walk out of the room, Moose grabs his daughter and carries Melanie and his daughter to the stairwell. "Hey Moose!" Max calls out "Where you headed?" "Up the stairwell, theres an evac chopper coming in and i want Melanie on it with Samantha." Melanie nudges Moose "Her name is Zoey!" Moose ignores her. "I don't think you want that man." Max says not to sure on Moose's intensions. "Well Max we can go our way and you can go yours. Max takes Moose's comment as a insult and walks away with Crystal and no words being said, not even so much as a single goodbye.
 
Moose and Melanie make it up the stairwell undetected by the undead or the guards, but when they get the roof access area there was nothing. No chopper, no people, the guards weren't even there. They walk in and search around the roof. Their breath is a white cloud in the cold secluded city they were now in. "Did everyone leave?" Melanie says sitting on a rusty air vent. Moose looking down from the Edge of the building and back to Melanie. "Well it looks like it." Melanie turns away as she sheds a single tear from everything they had just went through. The baby begins to cry as she squirms in Melanie's arms "Put her head next to your chest." Moose says not looking at them thinking of his next move for his family, Melanie puts the baby's head on her chest but the baby continues to cry. The cry's of his daughter echo through his head irrating him forcing him to rub his head to calm down but it doesn't do much. Finally Moose snaps and snatches his daughter away from Melanie and puts her near his chest slowly calming her down. Melanie watches her husband quiet their daughter down by simply holding her near his chest as his heart soothes the infant. "We got to get out of here." Melanie says followed by a tired sigh. "We'll find a room to stay in for the night i'll protect you we grab some medical supplies and we'll leave from this hell hole." Moose says while slowly rocking his daughter to sleep. 
 
Hours pass and the beat up family return into the hospital into the Doctor's office that Moose was held up in. Melanie slept with their daughter as Moose cleared the room from the bodies and re-enforced the door so they can remain safe for the night. Moose stares at the two females in his life and smiles, but then he hears a voice. "Dad!" Moose shakes his head to make sure he wasn't hearing anything. "What? Zoey? was that...?" "Dad!!" Zoey screams as Moose wakes up from his memory starring Zoey in the face while holding the woman who stabbed herself with a box cutter in his arms. "Dad are we going to take her back to the bus?" Zoey asks. He looks down at the woman and back at Zoey, "Yes...yes we will." I'll stay here you two go get those survivors, Zoey nods her head and she moves into retrieve the survivors. Moose stares at the woman wearing the wedding dress and closes his eyes in pain as he holds her in his arms. "I never got to say this to you before you left." Moose sheds a tear "I love you Melanie." 
 
Moose fades into his Memory once again and he's holding Melanie tight in his arms both crying in the hallway that was packed with bodies. Moose takes Melanie next door leaving the baby to sleep on the bed. Melanie goes into the room and they stare at eachother from behind the glass of the door just staring because because they heard only muffles when they would attempt to talk from behind that door. Moose punching the wall in anger, Melanie sitting on a chair watching the father of her baby beat the wall in anger, she gets tangled in memories of the two when they began dating, Moose asking her out in highschool, their first kiss, the first time they made love. All these memories run through her head and slowly fade away leading to seeing her husband through a steel door with a window in the middle of it, Melanie has cried all day today some tears of happiness and the other in pain and terror, but she wasn't going to cry right now she gets up from her chair and finds some paper and a pen through a desk in the room. Moose see's her scribbling on a yellow notepad and wonders what she is doing, she lets a sigh and brings it to the window so Moose can see. "I love you with all my heart. You are the Father to our child, My best friend and My soulmate. "I do." Moose reads this in her beautiful writing and puts his hand on the glass sperating them, she does the same and they look at eachother for a breif moment watching their love grow, their hearts connecting. Then she coughs very violently falling to the floor and groans in pain holding her chest with one hand and the other is reaching out for help, she looks at Moose with her light green eye's one last time and closes them and falls to the floor face down. Moose turns around begins to cry, he falls to his knees as his head hangs in depression. Tears pour from his eyes hitting the dry blood on the cloor. Moose gets off his knees and looks to the ceiling shouts. "WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME!!" he leans on the wall still crying "I tried my best in this world." He talks to himself. "I have done nothing wrong, and if i did i made up for it." Moose punches the wall and shouts the ceiling again "FORGIVE ME!!" he falls to his knees "I'm sorry." he mutters through his tears. "Forgive me father!" the halls are silent filled with his tears and crys. "SHOW ME YOU FORGIVE ME!" 
 
He hears a bang from behind him, he picks himself up and walks back, what he see's horrifies him making him sick to his stomach. There he stood looking through the window starring at the love of his life, but her eyes were no longer green, her skin was no longer a smooth peach color. Her eyes were covered with a pale film, her skin was pale, her veins were black, and she banged on the window in anger. She shrieked and snarled at the sight of Moose, pounding the glass she was no longer Moose's soul she was a monster plain and simple. The halls had no sound the only thing that can be heard was the breaking of Moose's heart. He takes a deep breath holding in his tears he pulls out his gun and aims the monster in the face as she pounds the glass with her blood drooling out of her mouth. "Goodnight....My..." a single tear falls from his blood shot eyes. "Goodnight..Melanie....Goodnight..my...Love." He fires one bullet peircing through the glass and through her skull, she lets a single shriek, her eyes roll back and she hits the floor with a bullet hole loged in her skull and blood surrounding it. 
 
"Dad!" Moose turns and see's Zoey standing next holdin a survivor and the other survivor with Matt. "lets go!" Zoey commands snapping her father out of his memory, Moose looks down and cradles the woman into his arms and walks out of the alley with Zoey and the others. "We really want to thank you!" one of the survivors says but Moose ignores him and continues walking towards the bus. After a long and silent walk they make it to their rusty bus, but as they walk in waiting to be greeted by the faces of James and the others they walk in to an empty bus with the doors left wide open. "Where the hell is everyone?" Matt asks they all stand in silence wondering where the rest of the group was, "Maybe they went out scavenging?" Zoey says breaking the silence "No they would of told me through the radio." Moose answers. Suddenly in the distance they see a mob of the undead heading their way, the mob looked to be in the hundreds so Moose takes action. "Fuck!" Moose runs in lays the woman on the largest seat in the back of the bus "Zoey take care of her, the rest of you strap in we got to go!" Matt leads the survivors to some seats as Zoey examines the woman in the back and Moose starts the bus and closes the doors. The bus rumbles as they drive away from the mob and out of Hellsburg. The two survivors sit in fear from their experience and hold eachother, Zoey looks back and sees that her dad had a very deeply disturbed expression on his face, she had never seen her father like this but as she was about to walk and comfort her father the woman from the alley coughs and begins to breath at a normal rate, Zoey continues to care for the woman and will find time for her father later on.
