Together We Stand
"All right, answers please?" Regan said to Krauser, her posture showing tired anger. She looked over at Krauser and said, "Well, we need answers!"
He stared at her, until Leon stepped up, blocking the way between him and Regan, snarling, "Give her looks all you wish, but do remember it's me you're going to have to deal with."
Ada sighed, before turning to the S.T.A.R.S. and saying, "Aren't there more of you?"
Chris nodded, but also shook his head, saying, "Well, there used to be my sister and Jill's friend, but they said they didn't want to have to deal with Umbrella anymore. But I think it was just because Claire got married…"
He seemed to go into his own world, so while Leon was threatening Krauser, she and Regan joined Sherry and Shiver. The former of them seemed to be cracking up about something, but was trying her best to hide her laughter.
"What's so funny?" Regan asked.
"I just can't believe Claire Redfield got married!" laughed Sherry. She finally stopped and turned dead serious. "I only feel bad for whoever she cooks for!" Her and Shiver both dropped laughing, rolling on the ground in laughter. Ada shook her head turning to look at how Leon was faring. It actually looked like he had Krauser scared.
Regan said something to Lucy and the girl grabbed Auron and got into the safety of the truck. Ada looked at Regan who said, "I want to know the plan don't you?"
She shrugged before turning to Sherry and Shiver. "Hey, pay attention." They both stopped and remained silent for her. "We want to know the plan."
"Oh, and I thought you were going to tell us not to laugh at Claire Redfield's cooking," Sherry said with a grin. Ada gave her a look and Shiver spoke up.
"Nothing really. I'm certain Leon told you about the plan to build an army." He paused, waiting for their nods. "Well, Sher and I found some survivors and we got them to go to D.C. after contacting friends for help. Well, in the short at least."
"So, we've got the beginning of an army?" Regan asked.
"Yeah, if everything goes well. Speaking of which, after Fathead over there gives us answers, we can get heading to D.C.," Sherry said, giving Krauser a look.
Leon spoke to them, without them realizing he was there. He came forwards while they were looking at Krauser and said, "Well, it seems that Shiv's little lie was actually right. In the most at least." He smirked slightly when they jumped and then turned to Ada, saying, "You know where their bases are?"
She nodded, but stopped asking, "Where? Here in America or elsewhere?"
"Yes, I know quite a few."
"Well, apparently Umbrella had key points to create bases at. Then, they released the creations to attack mankind. Well, after everything goes as planned, Umbrella will step up and offer help. The world will be desperate for help, and accept the enemies help. And yes, Wesker has been planning this since Raccoon City…"
Sherry shook her head, asking, "But how did they do this? How did they build bases beneath British, Chinese, American, and so on soil without someone noticing?"
Leon shook his head, muttering, "Looks like we've been underestimating Umbrella. Big time…"
Ada watched him, before looking at the S.T.A.R.S. She frowned and asked, "We need help, what about them?"
Sherry shook her head instantly, growling, "No, because that would mean having Claire Redfield come here! And I will never speak to her again!"
"You don't have to. But Ada's right, we need the help. Ashley, would you mind asking them?" Regan asked.
Ashley shrugged and walked over to the S.T.A.R.S., asking them something. Chris asked out loud if what they were doing was another trick, and they saw Ashley shake her head. The group said something and then Chris nodded.
"So, how are we going to move around?" Jill Valentine asked.
Leon shrugged, before Ashley said, "Shouldn't we introduce ourselves?"
Jill shrugged before saying, "I'm Jill Valentine. I'm good with lock picks."
Sherry gave her a look, before Chris said, "I'm Chris Redfield, and in basics, I'm the leader."
"No wonder he's so high on himself. He's a Redfield," Sherry snickered to Shiver, who laughed softly.
"I'm Barry Burton and these guys call me the gun nut of the team."
Leon looked bored and took to walking around.
"And I'm Rebecca Chambers, the medic," the youngest said.
Sherry turned to Ada and whispered, "So do we have to add something?"
Ada smirked and replied, "I guess so."
Regan grinned and said, "I'm Regan Mallet. I'm a spy. And the girl in the truck is my daughter Lucy."
"I'm sure you all recognize me as Ashley graham the-"
Sherry cut her off saying, "I'm Sherry Birkin, daughter of dead scientist William Birkin."
That made the S.T.A.R.S. frown.
"I'm Shiver. Nothing really to be said," Shiver started until Sherry shouted loudly, "John Denim is his real name!!"
Ashley laughed even as Ada said, "I'm Ada Wong, an assassin."
That made the group step back.
"I'm Leon Kennedy, a government agent. Now, can we get moving?"
The S.T.A.R.S. eagerly nodded their heads.
Leon walked to his truck, when he saw something across the street, a miracle in disguise. A blue van sat across the street, and as far as he could see, the keys were still in the ignition.
"Hey, you guys can go in that van," he said, pointing the 'good' group to the van.
They looked at it, before Chris nodded and walked to it. Regan on the other hand looked over at Krauser. She then turned back to Leon.
"Is he coming with?" she asked.
He looked at the bed of his truck before he said, "If he can fit."
She nodded and asked, "Well, what's the plan?"
Sherry stepped up and answered that, calmly saying, "Shiv here will ride in the back. You can have Lucy sit in your lap, I'll sit between you and Ashley and Auron can sit on me. I'm guessing Fathead can sit in the bed with Shiver."
Regan nodded and walked over to speak to Krauser. He nodded and Ada asked Leon, in a hushed voice, "Why are we letting him come along."
"He doesn't seem to be involved in anything. I think he was tricking Umbrella when he attacked me, because he apologized afterwards. He knows remember. Not to mention those things won't attacked superhumans," he explained.
She sighed and nodded, whispering, "Okay, if you say so."
"Not to mention, if he screws up Shiver will freeze him and push him out the back. I don't think he'll be coming back after that."
She laughed softly and they all piled into the truck, leading the S.T.A.R.S. towards America's capital.
It took at least three days to drive back to D.C.
They drove up to the White House and Sherry's sensitive ears picked up voices. Lots of voices.
"You here that Leon?" she asked, leaning over the slumbering Shepard.
He nodded and ordered everyone out of the truck.
"Why are we getting out?" Chris asked, stepping up to Leon. The younger man pointed in front of them and Chris turned to see the entrance blocked by cars. There was only enough space for humans to move.
"Christ, if there's this many cars, think of the people!" Sherry cried.
They stepped up and Shiver damn near thought he was going to have a heart attack.
"Okay, so it seems we underestimated how many Americans want revenge," Sherry laughed weakly as she stared in awe. Even Leon seemed to be shocked, because standing on the White House lawn, as if they belonged, were Americans. Thousands, maybe millions of Americans. Leon could tell that there were more on the streets and stared in shock as people started to become silent and turned towards him and his group.
The principal from the school stepped up and wore a huge grin as he walked up to Leon. "Bet you didn't expect this many did you?" he laughed.
Leon shook his head and asked, "How?"
"Well, it turns out, our armies were ordered by the 'President' not to leave their bases. Well, people used their phones and drove to friends, and look what we got! This is amazing!" Joe laughed.
A man approached Leon and said, "I'm General Brude. I lead the Marines. Are you the ones who got this to happen?"
Sherry nodded and the man saluted them, saying, "Then I thank you and you all have full control over my marines. And I know the others will also allow you to control their armies as well."
Sherry felt her jaw drop, before the mass of humans turned to them and cheered. Sherry grinned and looked at the others, mainly Leon.
"Well Leon, how's this for your army?"
He smirked and said, "I think Umbrella's already cowering."
The crowd sheered again and again, raising their hands and holding up the American flag.
Well, here's the end. The final of the series is coming up. Be prepared for mankind's worst war, The G-Virus War. (Thanks for the reviews Zombiedog001 and Raven2547!)
