28 weeks after the original Outbreak, civilians reinstated in safe zone
Doyle: We thought we had it under control, but I guess we were wrong. The units that we had to protect the civilians are scattered across the city and most of them are probably dead by now… We did everything we could to contain it, but it all happened so fast! It got to a point where we couldn't even see the difference anymore; which ones were infected, which were not. We have been given the ultimate order and it's our ultimate attempt at limiting our failure.
The voice that echoed in his ear was distorted and oddly calm.
''This is Sergeant Stone. We are now engaging code red, I repeat, we are now engaging code red.''
Stone feared this order would come, but as the Commanding Officer, he knew he had to apply it without any hesitation. At this point, it was a matter of life or death, not only for his men and himself, but for the entire country.
Sweat was rolling down his forehead as he brought the radio to his mouth, taking a deep breath before pressing the button with determination.
''Attention all units, we are now engaging code red, I repeat, we are now engaging code red. You are to put all of them down. No one must leave the perimeter. I repeat, none of them must leave the perimeter alive.''
Doyle: But then again, we failed miserably. We knew the risks it would imply if we did not follow that order, but the idea of killing all of them for the greater good did not appeal to all of us. We tried to rescue some, but lost most of them to our own snipers while attempting to get out of the city. We barely made it to safety before the higher powers sent planes to firebomb the zone in order to prevent further spreading. Those of us who had survived so far thought we would be safe for a while. Hope poured through when a fellow soldier of mine contacted us and announced he was on his way with a helicopter, but we were not out of the woods yet. When the infected appeared on the horizon as we were waiting for Flynn, panic re-surfaced and we were forced to return into the wrecked city. Flynn was going to get us at the Wembley Stadium, but that meant we had to avoid not only the infected, but the military reinforcements, also ordered with code red. When we got cornered by the two different groups, I got Andy, Tammy and Scarlet into a car and when we realised it was not starting, I knew I had no choice…
For the greater good.
I received a comment, some time ago, saying that my interpretation of ''code red was incorrect and that this story might be amusing for someone that had not seen the movie but it had many other things that were incorrect''. I would like to add that this is a fanfiction inspired from the movies, that the first few chapters are short and only a quick sum up, from my point of view, of the major events surrounding some of the main characters in the two movies. The rest of the plot surrounding this whole fanfiction is of my own creation. In simple words, I have not tried to relay verbatim the scenario of the movies, I just went with my impressions of them. Enjoy the next chapters! :)
