Run Alice RunA Chapter by Reaper
Standing over Alice is a giant red beast. It horns are sharp and black in color. Crimson blood crashes out of the beast’s mouth and hits the floor.
Its lustful eyes hit Alice’s. Alice lays there thinking about how this will be her end. All the regrets in her life and all the mistakes. The friends and family she had lost before and after the end of the world. She lays there in her own silence.
Just as her eyes meet the beast’s again; its brains explode over the door. The beast falls to the floor nearing falling on Alice. Alice looks up to see Derek in the hallway with his gun raised.
“Are you okay?” Derek says as pick up Eve.
Alice stumbles to her feet, “Yeah, are you?”
Derek ignores the question and goes to his trunk. With his one free hand, he picks up guns and ammo. He hands some of them to the Alice.
“We need to get out of here.” Derek says as he reloads his guns.
Derek gets a baby wrap and puts Eve in it so he has two free hands.
Derek motions Alice to follow him. Derek walks out of the house and moves towards the courtyard.
Alice yells towards Derek, “What about Lilly?”
Derek moves a bit faster. Alice is a little shocked based on the information and Derek’s ability to hold it together.
As they move through the courtyard, Alice sees Lilly. Her torso was on her left and her legs were in front of her.
Derek shoots a few dark creatures in the way of where he was going.
Alice spots one of those beasts whose back was turned to her. Alice fires her gun twice hitting it both times. It crashes to the floor.
Derek shoots a man turned into a zombie, once a friend, now a blood thirsty manic.
The two of them arrive at the side door of the wall. On the speaker system there is yelling then a crack followed by a female’s voice comes on.
“Attention citizens and invading Demons. Put down your arms before I send my armies in for you all. Just give us Castle and we will leave.”
Alice grabs Derek’s shoulder, “Who is that?”
“The zombie queen.” Derek says as he smashes open the door of the secret way out of the city.
The two make their way out of the city through the dusty and dark path. Alice holds on to Derek’s shirt as they blindly make their way.
After a while Derek stops. He swings his leg and smashes the door open. The dawn light hits them.
“Where are we?” Alice says as her eyes try to focus.
“We are almost near the safe house.”
Derek walks over. He is looking down at Eve who is fast asleep. He pulls off the wrap and hands it Alice.
“Can you hold her for me?”
Alice grabs her, “Of course.”
Derek sits down, “Sorry I need to rest for a second.”
“No worries.” She puts the wrap on and sits down next to Derek. “Thanks for saving me back there.”
“No problem. You kept Eve safe. I should be the one thanking you.”
“No problem.” She thinks on how to ask the question on her mind, “So, what happened back there?”
“What do you mean? The s**t storm of an invasion or what?”
“I mean…with Lilly. What happened?”
“Oh.” Derek takes a deep breath. “When I arrived at the courtyard, a demon had her in it’s hands. I shot at it but it was still able to rip her in half.”
“I’m so sorry Derek. I know you must be feeling like crap.” She moves closer to him.
Derek gets up, “I think I’m rested enough, we need to get to the safe house and the oracle.”
“Who’s the Oracle?”
“She is some old wise woman which it seems like the evil creatures are afraid of.”
The two continue to walk. Alice notices they are on some sort of hill and the scenery is dead. The two walk a little more and get to the top of the hill. Alice looks over it and sees a long black bricked tower.
She thinks to herself that must be the place.
They walk towards and soon after arrive there. Derek pushes open the large wooden door and they walk in. Derek grabs a torch and lights it. The two look around the seemingly open room.
“Where is she?” Alice points at the stairs, “Do we have to go all the way up to the top?”
“No, the oracle is a bit of a trickster.” He walks over to an old rug on the floor, he pulls it up to relieve a secret door, “We go down.”
The two walk down a set of stair to a fully lite room. The two see an old woman sitting there. She looks at them and speaks,
“Welcome Mr. Castle and Miss. White.”
