Chapter 1: the train/Rebecca
We were ambushed by something in the woods. I got separated from everyone and I made my way into the clearing. There was a large train I looked up at it there was a door. We had found a file on a couple of marines, Lieutenant Billy Coen. His file said he had killed 23 people and was being transferred for execution. I had to be careful checking this place out. I opened the door and stepped inside and the door shut behind me with a soft click. I turned and rattled the doorknob I had just come through it was locked. I sighed and looked around there was a bunch of luggage strewn around the train car. I looked around and heard soft murmurs and saw a man. I ran over to him, "sir, are you alright!" I called out. He turned to me I and his eyes were covered with a white film and his flesh was rotting. I screamed and stepped back I heard more of them behind me. I looked back and instead of shooting them I ran. I made it to what I'd take as the front of the train car. I looked around there was a body lying close to a locked door. I walked over to him he didn't seem to be one of those things. I looked in his hands he was holding something I reached down and opened up his hand and there was a key in it. I was about to walk over to see where this key belonged when I ran into him. I was still kneeling in front of the corpse when I saw the shadow behind me it was a man not a zombie. But they had a gun aimed right at my head. I turned slowly he was tall, tan skinned, and built like a brick. He had strange tribal tattoos covering his left shoulder a little below his dark brown hair and eyes to match. "Billy, Lieutenant Coen." He looked at me and glared "you know who I am, been fantasizing about me have you?" he said a smile playing at his lips. "You were with the soldiers outside weren't you?" I said looking back at him he was a murderer. Then he looked and my uniform "oh I get it you're with S.T.A.R.S." he turned about to leave. "Wait, you're under arrest." He turned to me and lifted his hand only one of them was cuffed. "No thanks dollface, but your kind don't seem to want me around. Besides I already wore cuffs I don't plan to wear them again." He said walking out of the corridor. "I could shoot you know!" I screamed after him. He had some nerve he didn't even look back at me as he walked away. I was about to follow after him when something crashed through the window. I walked over un-holstering my berretta prepared for one of those zombie things to stand up and come after me. I was wrong it was Edward, I ran over to him. "EDWARD!! Are you alright." He was holding his left shoulder tightly as blood seeped through. "Rebecca, it's you. The woods you can't go back out there, they are crawling with those zombie things they're everywhere!" Edward said as I took one of his hands in mine. "It's okay Edward you're gonna be alright." He looked up at me Edward was only 29 and watching him like this was heart breaking. "Edward took off his radio and handed it to me along with ammo for my berretta. "Take care, Rebecca" he said slowly drifting into an eternal sleep, his hand dropping from my shoulder. I looked down trying to hold in my tears. I had been a new addition to Bravo team, but that didn't mean I didn't feel these people were my friends. That's when something else crashed through the window I looked up it looked like a dog but it had rotting flesh falling off it. I stepped back slowly and stepped on some broken glass I looked up as the dog turned and growled at me. It was about to charge at me I closed my eyes and shot it in the head. It fell limply to the ground. I shook my head, what the hell happened here? I stood up and walked back into the train car I had left crawling with zombies. I entered my berretta raised, they were gone. I looked around, it must have been Billy. I looked and found a set of stairs, I decided to investigate. I walked up and there was a hall way with a door but the door was blocked my some black, slimy looking egg thing. I walked back and noticed a phone but the line had been cut, it was useless. I went back down stairs and headed through the door, opposite to the one I entered through. It was another train car for people to rest and sit down. I looked around and walked through another door leading away from the way I entered. I opened the door and it seemed like I was almost at the end of the train I tried to go through an automatic door but it was powered off. I turned to the stairs when Billy walked back in. "There you are. Look this place is crawling with those things out there. We need to cooperate." I looked at him and glared "cooperate with a criminal hardly I can take care of myself!" he laughed gently "look little girl you need my help." He walked up and leaned over the stairs looking up at me as he tried to pinch my cheek." I backed up "okay miss-do-it-yourself, then by all means show me how well you can take care of yourself." He said gesturing to the stairs as he walked back down the stairs and leaned against the wall "I may be young but I can handle myself and my name is Rebecca Chambers. That's officer Chambers to you." I said walking up the stairs my berretta in hand. It was a dining car there was a man seated by himself he looked as though he was staring at some food or something. I walked over and tried to reach to lay a hand on his shoulder. I screamed as his head fell and rolled on to the floor and strange leeches crawled out of his body devouring it completely. They formed a mound and I was slowly stepping back in horror. When I saw the head, which had fallen on the ground, form itself on to the mound of leeches. The leeches seemed to be able to mimic this man's clothes completely and everything about him. I stumbled over something losing my balance as well as my berretta as that thing opened its eyes. I screamed again reaching for my berretta and trying to crawl away. I turned in time to see that thing about to crash over me. When something shot it and it went crashing to the floor. I looked up to see Billy just a few feet from me, both hands on his gun shooting at that thing and covering me. I grabbed my berretta and ran up next to him and helped him shoot that beast until there were only 5 or 6 single leeches on the floor. I looked at Billy; I now owed him my life. He turned to face me "we need to cooperate." I looked at him and nodded "we should get going." I followed him there was a window on the other side of the dining car. We looked out it there was a ladder. "I'll go first watch my back." I nodded watching him climb the ladder. I holstered my berretta and climbed up after him the train had started moving. The rain was pouring down on us we had to walk against the current of the water and wind. I managed to get in front of Billy. I saw a wire sparking in front of us, which was probably the cause of the other door down below not opening. I crouched down next to it and began connecting the wires. I looked up Billy close behind, that's when I started to hear someone singing, I looked down at the wires they seemed to fill with a slimy coating that only those leeches had. A leech sprang at me and I screamed as I fell back into a hole on the roof of the train car. "Rebecca! What happened?" he called down. I looked up at him "nothing I'm alright I thought I saw a leech and well I fell." He looked into the room "look around and I'll go see what I can do to find out where you are." His head disappeared for a moment "Billy!" I screamed. He came back and looked down at me "you better come back for me" I threatened. He smiled "don't worry Rebecca I'll be there soon." I tried to smile back. As soon as Billy disappeared I looked around the room there was a service lift for food and other things and there was a first aid spray. I rattled the door knob something was stuck inside. I looked through the key hole it was shiny I sighed stuck here.
