Location: Fort Meade
A guy in his early twenties was running towards the general’s office. The guy was tall with short spiked up hair and had yellow sunglasses on him. He ran with a piece of paper in his hand. He knocked on his door.
“Enter,” the General said.
“Sir!” he yelled.
“Phil…calm down and tell me,” The General said while signing papers.
“Flight C-298 has crashed,” Phil said.
“Flight C-298 crashed, oh shit….When?”
“2 hours ago sir,”
“Let me see that piece of paper,” the general said.
Phil gave the piece of paper to the General. The General picked up the phone and pressed a button for a secure line. “This is NSA HQ I need a conformation that flight C-298 has crashed,” he said. The General waited for Conformation and when the man on the line said it wasn’t flight C-298 he asked what flight it was.
“Oh….Thanks….Phil it wasn’t C-289 it was C-296,” The General said.
“What, what was on it?” Phil said.
“Plane crashed due to the Flight Crew killing the pilots and pressing the Self-Destruct Button on the plane,” The General said.
“Sir?”
“Plane held a Toxin named “Fitzgibbons” on it Phil,”
“I’ll notify the Pentagon,” he said.
A red phone rang on a desk in the Pentagon. A man picked it up and said, “SecDef.” He began to nod and nod. But then he just held still. “Where did it blow?” he asked. “Chicago, holy shit, where in Chicago, Lake Michigan…” He grabbed another phone and called the General and said that he had to take care of it, himself, but other Agencies could help him.
The General walked into the control center at the NSA. “Listen up! We have a virus go into Lake Michigan’s water supply; we have to shut down Chicago now! Call the base in Chicago and tell them what’s happening,”
My name is James Spade. I’m 6 feet tall, I’m well-built and I have brown hair and brown eyes. I am a soldier working in a squad of like. Hmmm seven people work in my squad I’m the Action Control Chief in Chicago’s NSA head Quarters.  A phone rang next to my office and Matthew picked it up. I was looking at a folder on my desk which was about a plane that blew up early today. 
“Yo! James! Line 4!” Matthew said.
“Ight!” I picked it up, “Action Control Chief of Sector 15,” I said.
“James, it’s Phil,” he said.
“Phil long time no talk what’s up?” I said.
“Hey buddy, ahh there was a plane that was in the City that blew up right?” Phil said.
“Yes, the cargo went straight in the lake why?” I said.
“Go on Homepage look up C-296,”
I put the phone on speaker and typed in the fight number. Details on the plane. I clicked for the next page. “Cargo….Fitzgibbons….Oh shit!” I laughed and leaned to the computer to look at the virus on a picture.
“Ight, I’ll get a team to go look for the virus as soon as possible,” I hung up. And looked at the plane. “Hmm virus in the water supplies of Chicago and, kills the host and takes over the body and turns them into flesh eating zombies….Great!” I said. 
I made a call and asked for my squad to gear up.
We took a black hawk to the crash site. There were already a few police boats and some people on wave runners looking at what was happening. I grabbed the megaphone and said, “This is a Military Operation everyone but the police must leave now!” My men put on Scuba Gear and the helicopter hovered about 10 feet above the water and they jumped in. I dived in and got onto one of the police boats.
“Hello gentlemen, how are you doing here today?” I said.
“Who are you and what are you doing here!?” a Chicago Police officer said while trying to get his gun.
“Names Rancher and we are the FBI,” I said.
“FBI, but a plane crashed out here that’s nothing for the FBI to worry about,” Another cop said.
The Black Hawk’s bottom turned into an inflatable tube around the whole helicopter. The helicopter hovered down slowly and laid on top of the water. “Don’t see that every day,” I said.
One of the divers came up with a container in his hands. He put it on the black hawk’s floor and went back down. “Anyone beside any of the police go down into the water?” I asked. The one cop asked around and said, “5 people on wave runners notified us but, we don’t know if they went in or not,” He said.
“Know where they are now?” I said.
The cop nodded and said, “There in the playpen, I think they are from Belmont Harbor,” I made a call on my radio and requested two boats from the Coast Guard and another Black Hawk Helicopter from Base. “This is Rancher 1-1 Request on the black hawk a Screen Team,” I asked. There was a beep on the radio and that meant sure thing.
The other black hawk came and I got in with the coast guard. There were two boats one filled with men with NBC (Nuclear, Biological, and Chemicals) Suits on another one empty. They all carried M4A1 Carbines and there was a SAW on the front of one of the boat.
We entered the playpen and noticed only 4 boats and the people on wave runners that we were looking for. “Is the other Boat remote controlled?” I asked. One of the 4 men nodded and showed me the controller.
We didn’t want to be on the boat with infected people. Incubation time was 58 hours so plenty of time. But the virus is vary contagious. We rolled up to the five people and saw them zipping around. I grabbed a phone and made a call to my boss. “It’s Rancher 1-1 I want the lake to be shut down, no boats to go out at all only military, also contact the Filtration plant tell them to screen all there water,” I said. One beep again came from the phone.
We drove up to the 5 people and the Black Hawk was above watching us. A team member was up there with a sniper rifle of some sort, I couldn’t see, but he was guarding us.
“Ladies and gentleman…having fun?” I said.
“What’s it to you?” the one guy said.  
“Please get off the wave runners and please get on that boat over there,” I said.
“Hell no!” the guy yelled.
I could see the four other woman were scared to see guns on all of us. But the guy wasn’t worried he was probably a cop. I aimed my gun at the guy and he tensed up a little. They all got on the other boat and sat down silently.
We drove to a harbor and put all 5 people into a moving truck. The truck had two doctors in it and 2 guards with M4A1 Carbines on them. All 4 staff members were wearing NBC suits. We drove to a secure location outside the city and loaded them all off into cells. No one was in another cell with another person. I walked by the cells to see a woman just standing there. I looked at her and she just stood right at me.  I grabbed a recorder and started it.
“Cell number 5264. Individual is standing still no response, 5264!!” I yelled.
The woman blinked and tried to attack me. But the glass stopped her. I put red tape on the key hole to the cell.
“Cell number 5266, 5268, and 5270 all sleeping due to the drugs we gave them,” I said. I turned off my recorder and went to cell 5272. “Mam,” I said. She was pretty, long brown hair, brown eyes, tan skin. She looked at me and said, “Why are we here?” Her voice was soft with a hint of sadness. I looked at the camera above the cell and smiled. I looked back at her and said nothing. I walked up to the cell and said softly, “If you’re clear we’ll bring you back to your house.” I said. She sat down and looked away from me.
I put in my key to the door and unlocked it. I grabbed the handle and opened the door slowly. I walked in and shut the door. Another man behind me locked it and grabbed his Spaz-12 from his desk. I sat down and asked “What happened out there on the Lake?” She sat in her bed and moved around to lie down. “Nothing we saw bubbles coming up from the water. And believe me there was a lot of air coming from somewhere,” She said.
“Names Tim,” I said.
“Hi Tim, my name is Sydney,” Sydney said.
“I’m from the FBI, the bubbles you saw was air coming from a plane that blew up midair and crashed in the lake, it was carrying a virus which is supposed to take over someone’s body….Kill the person and make them into monsters….” I said.
She busted out laughing and I smiled looking at her. I could hear an alarm going off and the guard outside the door ran. All I heard was a Shotgun go off a few times. A man came up to the cell I was in and said, “Cell 5264 has been killed, sir” I nodded and said, “Get a cleanup team and tell them I want the place tested for everything,” the man nodded and ran.
I looked at Sydney and said, “Did the four go down into the water to see where the air was coming from?”
“Lizzy did and so did Jim that’s it,” She said.
I nodded and a man with a clip board walked to the glass door and knocked on it. I got up and the man opened the door for me and showed me the clipboard. “5264 and 5270 were the infected,” I said. The man nodded and said, “Should we let them go?” I nodded and said that they should be released but watched over carefully.
They were taken in a SUV and taken to their houses. I went back to my office and sat down. I turned my computer on and looked at the cameras that we set up in their houses.
I switched to a camera that was set up in Sydney’s room. I looked at the other two women and saw nothing out of the ordinary. “Sydney, Andy, and Kelsey all under the eye of one man,” I said
I looked at my watch and saw that it was 1 AM. I heard footsteps coming down the hall. “Sweet heart is that you?” I said. A woman walked in the door. She was tall, had dirty blonde hair, and she was good looking. “What’s up?” I said. She smiled and sat down. “Nothing just worried about this virus,” She said. I smiled and said, “Don’t worry your sweet little ass about it okay.”
I saw that Kelsey had a date over on the camera on my computer. My computer went to sleep mode and I looked at D. “Want to get a drink?” She asked. I looked at the clock again and said sure.
We drove to a local bar. We sat down and ordered a drink and something to eat.
“How are the folks?” I asked.
“Good, dad’s a little sick from here and there but,” she said
“How’s the case going?” she asked.
“Ah were fucked if one of the cases turns out to be infected, the incubation period for the virus was totally wrong,” I said.
“What is it then?” she asked.
“Depends, on the subject, the first woman was 2 hours, the guy was 3 hours,” I said.
“The other three women,” she said.
“Should be fine but….” I said.
“You could get a call and say that the virus has been out broken,” she said.
“Ya, but this isn’t the first time this happened,” I said.
“No shit, Roswell, any other type of incident we basically covered it up with aliens,” She said.
“Poor fucking aliens did nothing,” I said.
My pager went off and I looked at it. It read, “Kelsey turned”. I looked at D and she asked for the bill. We took the SUV and drove fast towards Kelsey’s house. It was up on the North Shore. We drove fast but we didn’t have a siren on so we were blowing through lights.
We stopped outside the house. I grabbed a Benelli M4 Super 90. And D grabbed a M4 carbine. The security that we left outside was all bitten. There was blood in the black SUV but no bodies. “Two guys are gone watch you’re six,” I said. We walked up to the house. House was huge about 4 stories, took up about 6 lots of land up.
We walked up to the gate and got through. The door was locked. I kicked the door down and D went in ahead of me slowly. We both turned on the lights on our weapons. “Anyone home! Police!” I yelled. Blood was covered on the walls and pieces of human limbs were thrown all over the place.
There was a noise in the kitchen and when we came in it was just a fan moving side to side. There was a condom rapper on the floor. “Well Kelsey is infected and so are the two guards and the boyfriend, wonder if bodily fluids contain the virus” I said. D looked around upstairs and found nothing.
I grabbed my radio and said, “This is Rancher and Andes we are inside Kelsey’s residence. I need a recovery team ASAP, we have one, two, three, four infected in the population,” I said. The radio turned to static and someone came on, “Rancher this is Reference, ahh, the same thing happened at Sydney’s house, she grew infected and killed the two guards outside her house, Andy killed her parents and then all three of them killed the two guards outside,” Reference (HQ) said.
I looked at D and said, “four here, plus the three at the other house plus, five at the other residence, that’s 12 infected,” D looked at me and said, “This virus airborne?” she said. I shook my head and I heard the Recovery team outside.
We both went for the front door and walked outside. It wasn’t the recovery team but the Police. “Freeze! Put the weapons on the ground now!!!” The officer said.
We put the guns down and waited for them to handcuff us. They dragged us into the squad car and took us to the station. We heard on the radio that the house was covered in blood. “Tell your officers not to touch the blood it’s infected,” I said.
The cop slammed on the metal fence between the car. “Were NSA! Let us go!” D yelled. The two cops laughed and said, “Your both going to jail for carrying weapons and killing a poor innocent couple.”
I laughed and we were dropped off in an interrogation room. A guard was with us in the room and patted us both down. “All units we have a woman biting random people in the street all units please report,” came from the guard’s radio.
“It’s fucking spreading,” I said.
“Why would you care you’re going to jail so sit down,” the guard said.
“We’ll both be out of here in a minute or so,” D said.
5 minutes went by and another cop came in and said to let us go. They said sorry and we got our weapons back and our car. “Reference, what’s the total count now,” I asked.
“Rancher the total count is about 30 some, the infected actually raid houses and bite the people inside,” HQ said.
We drove back to HQ in Chicago and were both in my office. I picked up the phone and dialed a number, “Yes this is Action Control Chief of Sector 15 request the SECDEF please,” I waited for the phone to ring and it was picked up.
“Hello Mr. Secretary we secure,” I said.
A sound went off and he said, “Go on”
“Well as you know C-296 blew up and that the virus went in the Lake,” I said.
“Go on,” He said.
“It’s out….We have about 30 some infected still going on a rampage,” I said softly.
I put it on speaker so D could hear what was happening. “Yo! James Channel 32,” Matthew yelled.
I grabbed the remote and turned on the Fox News. “This is live People, a woman and a man is eating another person in the middle of the street,” The lady said. The cameraman was shaking the camera; you could tell that he was scared of being attacked.
“Sir. You There?” I asked.
“Shut down Chicago, no one gets out alive, except this building which is going to be locked up,” D said.
“Alright we will shut the place down, make sure you guys are safe okay,” SECDEF said.
D ran downstairs and locked all entrances to the building. She than unlocked the chain fence on all the doors and secured them all. She told the guards to tell them if anyone tries to get in tell her or me.
She walked back up to me and said, “We need to help people out there.” I nodded and watched her. The news channel went dark, and I turned to other channels and still nothing. “D,” I said.
She looked up and looked at me. “You’re beautiful,” I said. She smiled and Matthew ran in. “Let’s do something!” he yelled. The city was shut down and anyone who was bitten was to be shot and killed. I called the FBI and CPD and told them what was happening. They turned on the all the sirens in the city to tell people to get inside.
I grabbed most of the agents in the building. “Ight Listen up! We have an epidemic on our hands!” I said, “D and I are asking all of you to help us. We’re all going out in the SUV’s down in the garage. “We had about 30 SUV’s in the garage. Everyone grabbed a FN Scar and all got in the trucks. The Sirens turned on and we raced across the city looking for people.  
“This is FBI Rancher to anyone out there can you hear me,” I said on the radio.
“If anyone can hear me and you aren’t bit, go to The Willis Tower or the John Hancock,” D said on the radio.
CPD and FBI agents said the same thing on other radio frequencies. All the cars split up. “Reference to all NSA Frequencies total number of infected is 32, 156,”
“Holy! Shit! It’s only been one day not even,” I said.
Bodies were everywhere. Blood all over the city. We drove near Lincoln Park and then drove to Cabrini Green. Or what was left of it. Still blood everywhere on the streets the walls, on cars. We stopped near a house with screaming people in it and people on the roof.
D and I ran out and saw an infected with blood on his chest and mouth. D shot it and blew its head off.  The skull fragmented all over the street. I looked at his face. The top part of its head was cleaned off. We saw the door covered in these things. I grabbed my Benelli M4 Super 90 and wasted them all. The door was locked and we were being pretty loud. The infected started running towards us but, we kept firing at them as they were running. The door opened behind us and we ran it. Two women and a few kids.
“You people have a car somewhere?” I said.
“Go to either the John Hancock or Willis Tower,” D said.
They nodded but needed help to their car. We opened the door slowly and started to look around. We got them to the car slowly and just watched some of the infected nearby just walking slowly. I grabbed D’s arm and held her still. An infected was eating a body right near our car. I walked with her slowly to the driver’s door and opened it slowly.
She went in first and I got in. I sat on her lap and got onto the passenger side. She shut the door and all we saw was infected in the front of the car all of a sudden. I grabbed D’s leg and she started the car. She slammed on the gas and ran them all over. The street behind the car was covered in red, and parts of human limbs. We drove to the Lake and decided to see if anyone on a boat was out there.
We stopped just a little north of the playpen near the S curve on one of the streets. I saw a shit load of boats out there. We parked watching the lake.
“So beautiful,” I said.
She nodded and looked at me. “Even in the time of destruction of the city,” She said. Her hand was on the stick shift. I put my hand on her hand and blushed a little. I heard a moan in the car and looked at D. Her smile disappeared slowly. I grabbed one of her Glock’s out of her chest holsters slowly. The thing looked at D and I popped it in the head. The blood of it hit both of our faces.
“Shit, its….its blood, is on you,” I said.
“It’s…also on you,” she said.
I grabbed a tissue and wiped her face off and she wiped my face off as well. All of a sudden there was a ball of Smoke near Navy Pier. We drove there and saw that they blew up the part that connected with land.
I grabbed a pair of binoculars and saw a sniper on the Ferris wheel. We drove to Willis tower and went to the top floor. "Tallest spot in the whole country," I said. The entire top floor was empty. D and I sat down to watch the sun drop. I laid down and she sat down next to me. I grabbed her shoulder and rubbed it. She laid down next to me. "You’re so warm," I said. I closed my eyes and night came. That night wasn't silent. Shootings could be heard all across the city. The infected were not sleeping that night. And sadly they never sleep. Helicopters roared through the city trying to save victims.
 
I woke up with D still right next to me sleeping softly. Her head was on my arm so I couldn't move. I rubbed her stomach and that alone made her wake up.
 
"Sleep alright?" D asked.
"Better that you were next to me," I said.
"Good answer," She said.
She grabbed my hand and held it. I kissed her head and said today was going to be a fucked up day.
 
We took the elevator down. The elevator stopped at the 10th floor. Security Cameras showed no infected in the building.
 
We walked to the garage with an escort. He carried a M16 on him also with a large thick looking knife.
We got in our car and drove to NSA HQ.
"All units in Chicago welcome to day two, total count of infected 45,687, this is reference out," Our radio said.
 
I walked in my office and D followed. Matthew was on the roof picking off infected with his M200 Intervention Sniper Rifle. I turned on the TV and the news said nothing about Chicago just different cities.
 
"Dan Fitz," D said.
"How the fuck did u know my name?" I said.
"I have my sources, and a birth certificate," D said.
"Okay D, I still don't know your real name," I said
"Your 25, thought you were much older," D said.
"How old are you?" I asked.
"Year younger than you," D said.
I went on my computer and typed in "Cure for Fitzgibbon". Search came up with "In Process".
"Wow CDC is making a cure for this infection," I said.
She walked over to my computer and sat on my lap. "Ya but I don't think it will work," D said.
Matthew walked in and sat down in front of my desk.
"What's up," Matthew said.
I turned my computer towards him. He smiled slowly and said, "That’s awesome, how made it,”
I stroked D's leg softly and said, "Engineered by some scientist up in the North Pole," I grabbed a piece of paper and wrote on it. I gave the sheet to Matthew to put in my faxing machine.
"Sir!" An old man yelled out.
"Who sir there's three old senior officers in here?" I said.
D gave me a stank eye and I rubbed her legs and stomach. The old man was in his 50's at least.
"He has a gun!" I yelled.
He walked in with a briefcase and also with a gun.
"Hello, I'm Mr. Johnson, ahh, I'm head of the CDC Experimental Unit," He said.
I rubbed up between D's legs. She grabbed my hands and put them on my desk. "We are almost there of finding a cure, but the rate of the city killing the infected, a cure might not kill them all," He said.
"Still we need that cure," I said.
He took out a black container his briefcase. He unscrewed the top and took out a glass container that glowed green. "Kryptonite," I said. He smiled and cracked the container. The green diamond looking cure turned into liquid. "If this touches you, you are automatically cured," he said. I nodded slowly. I took the broken container and looked at it.
I tapped D on the chest. She took out a Glock 17 and killed Mr. Johnson. "Why did you just kill him," Matthew said.
I placed my head on D's shoulder. I put it on my desk. "Ask the CDC for more like this," I said to Matthew. "We get enough we rain this stuff all over the city," I said.
I grabbed D's hand and grabbed hand sanitizer as well. I put some on her hand and cleaned her hand free of GSR.
I grabbed my phone and called the front desk. "Send a cleanup team to my office, Mr. Johnson was infected," I said.
"After this kill all the CDC scientist that made this, and also Matthew," I said.
"Matthew why him," D asked.
"He knows too much," I said.
"He’s new and I can tell you like him, so no I won't," she said.
"You know me to well sweet heart," I said.
"No you don’t," she said.
"Only your name is the only thing I don’t know about you," I said.
She got up and smiled at me. I grabbed her hand and let it go as she left the room. "I'll miss you," I said.
She walked to her office a few feet away from mine. "Fucking zombies in the fucking city," I said. Matthew walked in and said, "Got off the phone with the CDC they'll send us 1000 more units to cover the city.”
"The fax that was sent out was saying to put the cure on helicopters and fly the cure across the city to cure people," I said.
He nodded and I went for a drive. I got in the garage of the building. I saw a few guards staring at me, I nodded at them and they nodded back. I got in an SUV, turned on the hockey game on the radio. Black Hawks were away, they shouldn't even know about what happened.
I put my Holster in the coffee holder next to me. I shifted the car in reverse and got out of the garage slowly.
I stepped on the gas and drove through the city. Clean up teams all over the city washing the blood of the streets.
Pockets of CPD killing infected. Corpses all over the city. Parts of bodies on the streets, on the buildings, people killing themselves so they wouldn't be killed.
I stopped my car to see an infected eating a body. I opened my window and grabbed my M9. I whistled at it and said, "Yo bitch!" it turned with skin in its mouth. I pulled the trigger and shot it in the head.
It fell over on the body it was eating. I drove to the lake and saw a few helicopters taking the parts of the plane out of the water, onto a barge.
 
Water filtration plant put the cure in the water which made it safe. Jets flew by the city releasing a green smoke from behind them all. I smiled and got out of my car. I walked to the beach and took my shoes off and socks. The water was cold as always. "I've hardly even felt this water warm," I said. An infected was behind me but the cure was clearing him up. The man fell and two minutes later got back up and asked what happened. I shrugged my arms and said nothing really.
For the past month the DOD and NSA erased everyone’s memory in the whole city. Shit that took a shit ass long time I have to say. Including the FBI and CPDs men as well.
I sat down signed a piece of paper and looked at my computer. "All agents and viruses are to be flown across deserted areas, with no populace," I said. I looked at D and said, "Will you go out with me." She smiled.
