A.N: WOW IM FINALY
I've been writing this fic ever since I saw the movie the first day it came into theaters! When I saw it… it totally screamed boondocks!
If you have not see "I Am Legend" then you might not want to read the fic… it may contain spoilers for the movie… mostly I just used the concept but I mixed up the scenes to my own perspective.
This is a Huey/Jazmine fic and I have most of it written up already…
so I decided to slice up the word file into chapters cuz its like 50 pages so far.
Also sorry if you see any spelling errors… I went over this the best I could…
And I don't own boondocks or I am legend…. But it's on my Christmas list!
/ Chapter 1: How it All Began\\
A TV reporter looked to a woman smiling.
"So your saying you found the cure for cancer right? The woman asked looking to the scientist while holding a microphone out to her.
"Well.. Yes we have…" The scientist lady said smiling as she turned to the TV camera smiling.
"Future generations will someday look back on this as the day that saved humanity!" The news cast woman said smiling even bigger.
"Yes… yes they will.." Said the scientist lady as she kept smiling.
"RRRIINNNGGGG" went an alarm as it was slammed off by being hit.
The person that hit the alarm opened his burgundy eyes as he sat up. This person is named Huey Freeman. He is 19 years old and very build, as his dark skin shows his African heritage and his unusual dark afro on his head. He was wearing dark blue sweat pants and no shirt as it showed off his well toned body and his six pack. His face was set seriously as his eyes were as cold and emotionless as a dead person. As he walked out of his room he waked down the stairs of the 2 story house.
Walking into a kitchen with food cans and boxes stacked the walls. The sun's light seeped into the house as he walked over to the door frame that was between the kitchen and the living room. Sighing he jumped and grabbed a metal bar that looked to be drilled above the door frame as he began to lift and drop himself in a training way as his cold eyes stared at the wall ahead of him.
As he stared at the wall a picture hung their of an old man with grey hair and a younger boy that looked 11 with corn rolls next to him with a smirk as he looked gangster and on the far side was another young boy that looked 13 with a afro, burgundy eyes and hands crossed with a cold look in his eyes and a frown. As he looked at it his mind wandered back to those days… before this all happened…
6 Years Ago
A group of army people bust threw the neighborhood with guns at their sides as they ran house to house with scanners. Out on the lawn the Freeman family stood surprised as the Dubois family ran over.
"Tom what's going on!" Granddad yelled over the noise.
"Robert the virus has gone air born! The army is scanning everyone to take the clean to an area where they will be airlifted to a safe area!" Tom yelled.
Jazmine was standing next to Huey as she looked so scared she grabbed onto his coat sleeve jacket and buried her face in his arm.
"Huey… I'm scared.." She whispered.
Normally Huey would tell her she should be scared but she was nearly almost crying as she clutched onto him and he felt his heart clench at her fear.
"Don't worry… I won't let anything happen to you" Huey said in a low voice.
Jazmine looked up at him with confused eyes as she had never heard him say something so kind to her in such a soft voice. But she nodded believing him and suddenly an army man ran over with a device in his hands. Jazmine clutched harder on Huey's hand as the man walked to each of them and scanned their eyes as a green light came on. He got down on his knees and scanned Huey's eye and he didn't even flinch as a green light came on and the man moved in front of Jazmine.
As the army guy held the machine to her eye Jazmine flinched but Huey took her hand in his and squeezed it and she let it scan her. A green light came on and Huey felt himself sigh.
Caesar's family ran over and they were scanned as they all sighed in relief. Huey looked to Caesar with worried eyes as both seemed to know of what might happen if the light were red.
A voice screamed as they saw Cindy run over with blood shot eyes and tears running down her face. Before anybody could ask she flew herself into Riley's arms screaming and clutching his shirt. They looked up to see her parents being locked up into a truck that drove away. Riley just put his arm on her back and let her cry.
Quickly the army men led them to a truck as they got inside. Jazmine sat next to Huey the whole way as they came to a pier where crowds of people where screaming to be let in. A cage was put up around the dock as more people were being scanned. Suddenly a group of army people grabbed each of them ripping Huey and Jazmine apart and also Riley and Cindy, as Riley cursed and yelled for them to let go of her. They were lead to a dock area where helicopters were and loading people. Quickly they loaded Sara, tom and Granddad along with Caesar's parents inside as they yelled for the kids to go first.
"MOM! Dad!" Caesar yelled.
"Granddad!" Both Huey and Riley yelled also.
"Mommy! Daddy!" Jazmine felt tears in her eyes as she called to them.
A helicopter nearby was filling up as he came to them and grabbed Caesar and shoved him in a helicopter along with Riley and Cindy. Caesar looked to Huey's desperate look as he watched his brother be taken away.
"I'll look after him!" Caesar yelled to Huey giving him his soul promise.
Huey just nodded as the helicopter was lifted into the air and Huey watched as his brother pressed against the glass looking at Huey with desperate eyes as Huey could have sworn he saw tears in them.
The helicopter that had all their parents was starting up ready to take off as Granddad yelled to Huey.
"Be good boy! I'll find you!" He yelled out his own promise to his grandson that was like his own son to him.
"Jazmine we love you sweetie! We will find you to!" Sara yelled as she cried.
"Huey watch after her! I'm trusting you!" Tom yelled as he gave Huey a look that pleaded for him to watch over his daughter.
Huey nodded but that nod was cut short as a bright light came near them and went past their heads but smashed far away into a road that lead in and out of the city as the explosion was huge they could see fire high in the sky and the wind flew. Huey grabbed Jazmine and pulled her down to the ground as the wind was very powerful. The helicopter began to take off and Huey heard a scream as he turned to look at another helicopter being grabbed by people wanting to get on as it began to spin.
Looking back at the helicopter that held his and Jazmine's family inside his eyes got big as the Helicopter was an inch from colliding and he could see the fear in their eyes as his granddad looked away down at Huey and then they collided.
"Clang SMASH!" sounds were heard as Huey snapped out of his flashback and saw the girl he had lived with for 6 years. Jazmine Dubois stood there with her emerald eyes looking into his nervously. She still had her puff ball hair on each side of her head but her body had grown up like his had. She had a more slender, curvier figure, and her skin had tanned a little more but naturally because of her mulatto heritage. Her eyes were bright emerald and totally the opposite of his but he had seen happier eyes on her when they were younger but she still seemed very happy. She stood their in a pair of dark pink shorts and a white tank top as she was froze to the spot next to a pot that she had accidentally knocked over when she walked in.
His eyes darted to look deep into her eyes which he knew made her squeamish when he stared at her intensely like that.
"Uh.. Good Morning Huey!" Jazmine squeaked out and smiling sheepishly.
Huey sighed as he let go of the bar and dropped as he landed on his feet with sweat on his face and chest slightly. Jazmine felt her cheeks turn hot as she blushed and quickly turned away as she walked out of the kitchen and came back with a towel and sheepishly handed it to him. Huey was always confused on why she was turning red a lot but he took the towel with a nod and walked to the other room.
Jazmine sighed with relief as he left but giggled to herself as she turned to make breakfast for them both.
Huey washes himself off as he changed into black pants and a white muscle shirt with a black jacket over it. As he picked up a silver gun fully loaded he looked into the shiny metal and sighed as he put it in a holster inside his jacket. Walking down stairs he heard humming and looked around the corner to see Jazmine humming bob Marley 'three little birds'. He felt a very faint smile to his lips before letting it go and walk towards her from behind.
Jazmine felt somebody behind her as she quickly turned around and gasped as she saw Huey inches from her.
"Oh Huey, you scared me." Jazmine sighed smiling as she felt her heart beating hard.
Huey looked down at her and put both hands on each side of the counter as he blocked both paths of escape for her and gave her and intimidating look.
"What's for breakfast?" Huey said in a bored yet serious tone like he didn't think what he was doing was affecting her so much.
"Uh.. um.. b-bagel a-and fr-fruit with h-hash browns" Jazmine stumbled out.
Huey made an 'hm' sound and walked to the table as he sat down and pulled a book out as he read it with an intense look. Jazmine sighed and turned to the stove as she began to flip the hash browns and then brought a plate over to Huey and set it in front of him along with a bowl of fruit and a glass of orange juice. She gave him a big smile and a wink as she turned to get her own food. Huey felt his cheek turn red for a few seconds as she winked at him and quickly turned back to eating and reading.
Jazmine sat across from him and began to eat her food as she began to talk to Huey even thought she knew he was reading she also knew he would never ignore her unless he was doing something very important. Soon she finished and cleaned off her plate as she walked upstairs to get ready.
As Huey finished and cleaned his plate he stood and walked to a large wooden cabinet and opened it to revile a rack of guns and many boxes of bullets. Even though he already had a smaller one in his holster he pulled out a large gun with a strap on it and hung it on his shoulders and took a round of bullets in his pocket as he closed the door.
Just as he turned he saw Jazmine coming down with a German shepherd that came a little past her knees. The dog was named Sammy Davis Jr. but they called him Sam for short. He had tan and black fur and was very affectionate. Jazmine found him 6 years ago after the whole incident and took him in. Huey protested at first but then the dog showed its usefulness by saving Jazmine from a falling piece of slab from a roof top that could have killed her. Soon as Huey began studying the virus he noticed the dog was immune to air born viruses but contact could infect them. Sam soon learned to warn them if any of the infected came near them.
Huey did have to admit he had grown fond of the little companion and he has saved them from many things. Dogs can just sense things that Huey can't, even with Huey's good senses.
Jazmine smiled to Huey as she walked to him wearing kaki cargo pants and black tank top with a light pink jacket over it and black sneakers. Her smile sent shivers up his spine as he put on a serious look.
"Do you have it?" Huey asked raising an eyebrow.
Jazmine nodded as she showed him the gun in the holster he made her carry around. She hated guns but Huey would only let her outside the house if she had the gun. Huey grabbed a brown backpack and slung it over his should with a large gun still hanging from its strap on his other shoulder as he began to unlock all the locks on the large wooden door.
Opening the door both stepped out and got a serious look as they looked around them at their use to be perfect neighbor hood. Weeds and tall grass in every lawn which made it look like a jungle, cracked streets with weeds cracking out of the cement, cars everywhere lined the side of the street and houses looking broken down and decrepit. Jazmine looked across the street and felt her eyes loose a lot of emotion as she saw a big 2 story white house that use to be her home. It was so beautiful back then… Now the windows were broken, the roof shingles were falling off, and the lawn was un-tamable.
Huey looked to her and saw her broken look and he felt angered by her sadness because he didn't want her to be sad. He began to walk to a large jeep.
"Come on Jazmine" Huey said in a low voice as Jazmine snapped out of her thoughts.
"Oh coming" She put back on her smile as she ran and jumped in the passenger side.
Huey threw his backpack in the backseat and made a click sound with his tongue as Sam jumped in after Jazmine and also jumped in the back seat. Huey pulled out of the driveway and began the drive to town. Jazmine put in a CD of Maria Carry and smiled at the song. Huey just rolled his eyes and drove. The streets they passed were just like their street, all broken, torn, weeds and tall grass everywhere. Soon they came to a street filled with empty, broken cars, weeds growing threw the sidewalks and stores lines each side of the road that were all dusty and dirty. Huey stopped the car and both him and Jazmine got out as Jazmine ran to a DVD store and took out some keys. She unlocked the door and waited as Sam ran in and after a few seconds he barked and Jazmine walked in. She ran over to a rack of DVD's and took a DVD out of her own brown messenger bag and placed it back on the shelf in the right place and looked as she picked up another one and giggled as she saw it was a romance called "The Notebook". Picking it up, she skipped out with Sam behind her. Jazmine locked the door behind her as she saw Huey leaning on the car looking down at a map. She saw he was very deep in thought as she smirked and looked down to Sam and made a 'keep quiet' look.
As she began to slowly walk to him Huey was so into the mad, as he looked down at a few Red X's on the map, he didn't even notice Jazmine was next to him. Jazmine leaned in and whispered in his ear.
Huey felt hot breath on his ear and not only did it startle him he felt his cheeks turn red as his neck snapped to look at Jazmine who was inches from his face smirking.
"Scared you?" Jazmine asked in a sly voice.
Huey's eyes went from shock to annoyed.
"No... You just surprised me." Huey said, looking back down at the map.
"Well think of it as payback for this morning." She said and turned as she walked to the car.
Huey rolled his eyes and sighed as he tried to calm his racing heart. He heard a gurgle sound and looked down to see Sam looking up at him. Huey looked back and Sam tilted his head in curiosity. Sighing Huey folded back up the map and pet the top of Sam's head.
"Come on" Huey walked to the car with Sam jumping in first then Huey got in after him.
Driving out, they came to many large apartment complex buildings. Stopping the car Huey got out and so did Jazmine and Sam. Huey's eyes hardened as they darted to the many windows that lined the apartment building around them. Sam ran to the door of one and Huey followed but turned to Jazmine.
"You don't have to come" He said seriously.
"I want to" Jazmine smiled at him.
Huey sighed and nodded as they waited at the entrance and heard one bark as they walked in. Both began to walk up a long staircase as Huey has his gun drawn just in case as Jazmine was behind him and Sam was in front of them to warn for anything. After a while of walking they came to a hall of doors and Sam sniffed the door and barked to Huey once, as Huey kicked open the door and held his gun up to fire.
Seeing nothing Huey walked into the slightly dark apartment with gun drawn and went to the windows as he ripped down the blinds and sunlight flooded the room. Jazmine walked in after him and looked around the unknown place. They would do this a lot… Go to random apartments and search it for anything of use to them like medicine, extra food even though they were stocked up with a lot of food. Jazmine walked into the kitchen and began to rummage threw the shelf's as Huey looked around.
Huey walked down a small hall and looked at a picture hanging on the wall of a family with a husband, wife, and a, what looked to be 6 year old son. Huey then walked to a door that was open and looked to the bed to see the decayed body of what should have looked like the boy in the picture. Huey grimaced and turned but next to the room was a closed door with a note on it.
'Don't open till Christmas, Santa will bring you 2 gifts. Love, Mom and Dad'
Huey read over the note and slowly opened the door and felt his heart clench with pain as he saw a newly furnished baby room with a yellow and blue baby crib with toys all around it covered in dust but looked to be never used. Huey began to think of all the pain that night caused them all.
As the helicopter exploded Jazmine looked up in tears as she screamed and tried to run to the burning refuge of the remains but Huey held her back and pulled her into a tight hug and held her their as she pounded on his chest and he let her as he tried to hold back more tears of his own.
Suddenly another explosion was heard a little farther. Huey realized what they were doing. They were shutting off any roads to get in or out of the city. Screams were heard as everyone ran around in panic. All the helicopters left and Huey tightened his hold on Jazmine as she cried harder. Aggression began to fill the crowds as fights broke out and the army tried to control the crowd. Huey knew he had to get them both out of here. Even though he felt like just giving up and stay, weather he died or not, but Jazmine's sobs brought him to reality and he realized he had to be strong for the both of them.
"Let's go" Huey began to pull her into the crowd to get out of everything.
Jazmine tried to close her eyes as Huey guided them, until gun shots were heard. Huey threw Jazmine to the ground and so did many others as the military began to fire on people who tried to attack them. People panicked and began to create a stamped trying to get out. Huey tried to grab hold of Jazmine as both were ripped from each others arms.
"Jazmine!" Huey yelled as he tried to fight his way threw.
"H-Huey!" Jazmine screamed, tears still came from her eyes as she was to weak to push anybody away and people shoved and hit her all around until she was slammed into a dark ally on her back.
"Hu-ey" Jazmine whispered as she closed her eyes and passed out, and a small drop of blood fell from a small tiny cut behind her head.
Huey was punching and pushing people as he jumped on top of a car hood and looked threw the crowd searching for any signs of her. After 5 minutes of looking most of the crowd had gone by as some were still running or dragging themselves from the stamped.
"Jazmine!" Huey yelled out looking frantically.
Jazmine lay in the ally as she groaned still unconscious. A German Shepard walked into the ally and began to lick her cheek. Jazmine groaned again and slightly cracked open her eyes.
"W-where am I?" Jazmine said looking up.
She crawled to her knees and held her head moaning.
"My head" She whispered.
Earlier when the army had begun shooting they shot a large satellite dish from the top of a building and it was holding on by a wire. Jazmine looked to the middle size dog that was a puppy. She smiled but frowned at the pain in her head.
"Hey puppy…" Jazmine said as she seemed to forget everything that happened a few minutes earlier.
The dog looked up and the wire snapped as the large satellite fell. Quickly the god jumped and pushed Jazmine back as she rolled a few inched away from the big crash of wires and metal. Jazmine felt dizzy as she looked to the crashed satellite and the dog right next to her. She smiled faintly but closed her eyes and passed out again.
Huey heard a crash and ran to the area it was in. As he ran to the entrance of the ally he froze in shock as he saw Jazmine on the ground and a mess of wires and metal behind. Running to her side Huey dropped to his knees and held Jazmine in his arms as he felt blood on the back of her head. His body began to shake as his breathing became slower.
"Jazmine?" Huey whispered and then pulled her body so close to him in a fierce hug, with his head in the crook of her neck and he felt tears at the corner of his eyes.
He had lost his granddad, and his brother is gone somewhere he doesn't know if either will survive to see each other again. And now he might lose Jazmine. The only girl that had the enough kindness to never give up on him, even when he crushed her dreams over and over. She still always came back to him with a smile. He needed her smile; he needed her to come back like she always did.
"Jazmine" Huey whispered again as a tear slid down his cheek.
Suddenly he felt a soft hand touch his cheek.
"H-Huey?" Huey froze as he felt the soft hand on his cheek as it wiped the tear away.
"Why are you crying?" Jazmine had her eyes half open and when he looked into those beautiful emerald eyes she gave a smile.
Huey felt his heart beat strangely as he let out a shaky breath and pulled her to a hug.
"Huey?" Jazmine asked.
"I thought you would never smile at me again" Huey whispered.
"Oh Huey… I'll always smile, because this smile here… is just for you" Jazmine said giggling a little before closing her eyes and falling asleep.
Huey kept on hugging her and heard a whimper as he looked up and saw a puppy staring at him. Huey looked into the puppy's eyes and back down at Jazmine.
"Did you save her?" Huey asked in a low voice.
The dog just stood their and Huey sighed as if he knew what had happened. Standing up with a grunt Huey picked Jazmine up bride stile and turned but turned his head back to the puppy.
"…Come on" Huey said annoyed as he began to walk home.
The dog barked happily as he ran and walked beside Huey as he led the dog and carried Jazmine back to his house.
Huey snapped out of his thoughts as he heard Jazmine calling him. Quickly he shut the door and walked out to see Jazmine holding a bag filled with supplies they might find useful. Giving him a big smile that made Huey remember her words 6 years ago.
'I'll always smile, because this smile here… is just for you'
Huey sighed and shook his head as he nodded and took one more look around the room before turning and walking, with Jazmine following. Sam ran out first and led the way as Jazmine and Huey walked side by side down the stairs. When they got out Huey looked up at the buildings again and Jazmine got in the car with Sam and waited for Huey. Turning he walked to the car and started it and they drove to the sea port. Soon they came to the same port they were at years ago that over looked a body of water that led far out.
Walking to a desk that was set up on the side Huey sat down and pulled out a book as he read. Jazmine took a tennis ball out and began to throw it across the dock as Sam ran and fetched it. Jazmine was giggling and kept throwing it as both have fun while waiting. Huey stared at the pages but he couldn't read or focus as her giggling made his mind wander off again and he stared out at the water.
In the freeman house we see Huey passing the floor as Jazmine sat on the couch wide awake holding an ice bag to her head with one hand, and a puppy in her lap as she petted him with the other.
"Huey?" Jazmine gave him a questioning look.
"Jazmine… Were in trouble." Huey looked into her eyes.
Jazmine tilted her head but flinched as she did.
"What do you mean… What can this 'virus do?'" Jazmine asked
Huey remembered the report from the news as he looked to Jazmine. Suddenly gun shot was heard as Huey ran to the window and saw a mob of people running and screaming as some began to look very pale and hair seemed to be missing on parts of their head. Huey gasped and ran to a closet and pulled out a gun and pulled Jazmine up.
"Go to my room and stay their no matter what."
"But Huey-" Jazmine tried to say.
"No! Just go!" Huey said.
The dog jumped up and stood in front of Huey and growled as his fur stood up.
Jazmine grabbed the back of Huey's shirt.
"NO HUEY! I've already lost so much! I can't lose you!" Jazmine began to cry.
Huey wanted to stay and fight but sighed as he flipped the lights off and grabbed Jazmine as he pulled her up the stairs and into his room, he pulled her into the closet and he lifted Jazmine up.
"Push that area their" Huey grunted out.
Jazmine in confusion pushed and a small portion of the ceiling slid off and she realized it was a secret opening to an attic. Huey pushed her up and she crawled in and Huey held up the dog as Jazmine took him and looked back down to Huey.
"One second." Huey said as he went to his bed and pulled his sword from underneath it.
Running back to the closet he shut the door and did a jump flip and grabbed the ceiling edge and got up as he closed the hatch door.
Huey… I'm scared" Jazmine said as she grabbed his arm.
Huey looked down to her as he wrapped his arms around her small form and held her to him.
"Shhh… it's ok.. just go to sleep and they will be gone soon…" Huey whispered.
"W-will you be here when I wake up?" Jazmine asked
"…Yes.. I'll always be here for you" Huey laid on the ground as Jazmine snuggled into his chest feeling his warmth around her.
The puppy walked over and snuggled beside Jazmine too. Jazmine gave the puppy a smile.
"Night Huey.. night Sam.." Jazmine whispered.
"Sam? Huey asked with a raised eyebrow.
"Yeah… short for Sammy Davis Jr." Jasmine said in a low voice as her eyes shut and her breathing slowed down.
Huey stared at her sleeping face and looked to the puppy asleep.
"Goodnight Jazmine…" Huey whispered and Sam's head shot up to look at Huey.
"And Sam" Huey rolled his eyes as the dog laid its head back down to sleep.
Huey looked to the ceiling and stared hard as he heard screaming and growling from outside. Squeezing his eyes shut Huey pulled Jazmine closer and waited for sunrise.
Huey felt a tug on his hair as he looked up to see Jazmine sitting on his desk as she tugged at his afro lightly to get his attention.
"Hey why so sad looking?" Jazmine asked smiling.
"Oh nothing. How long have we been here?" Huey asked looking up, as she sat on the desk in front of him.
"Only an hour. We still got a few to go…. What do ya wanna do?" Jazmine asked smiling.
A thought came to Huey's mind but he quickly shook it out of his head and watched her.
"I don't care." Huey said.
"Ok then!" Jazmine smiled as she got up and sat in his lap.
"J-JAZMINE!" Huey yelled as he blushed bright red.
"I want to be close to you and talk…" Jazmine said smiling slightly.
Huey took a deep breath and tried to calm down.
"A-about what?" He asked.
"How you feeling?" Jazmine asked him with an honest concerned smile.
"What do you mean?" Huey raised an eyebrow as he almost forgot she was in his lap.
"You just seem to be working yourself to death." Jazmine said in a low voice.
"Well it's not like I have an option to just lay in bed all day." Huey rolled his eyes.
"I know that… I'm just a little worried about you." She laid her head on his shoulder.
"Don't worry about me. It's a waste of time. I'm fine" He felt himself wanting to wrap her in his arms but he did not.
"I can worry for you all I want and don't tell me what wastes my time." Jazmine giggled and snuggled up to him.
Huey left the conversation their as they sat and waited for another hour. Huey's watch beeped and he sighed.
"Time to go" He said and Jazmine pouted as she stood to let him get up.
Sam had been napping next to them the whole time and he jumped up and ran to the car as Jazmine followed.
The drive home was silent as Jazmine pet Sam and giggled when he licked her hand. Soon they came home and Jazmine grabbed both their bags and went up the walk way with Sam. Huey got out and took out a bottle of clear liquid as he walked down the pathway leading to his house he sprayed the bottle onto the concert to hide any footsteps or sign that they were their. Closing the door Huey locked it and walked to the kitchen to see Jazmine humming a tune and making them dinner. Huey walked down a hall and to a door as he opened it and it seemed like a basement which he walked down the stairs. Once at the bottom he flipped a light switch and light flooded the basement.
The room had a large metal table in the center with many computers on it and monitors lines the walls with data papers, books, equipment, test tubes, needles, and a variety of other stuff. Huey put of a long white lab cote and gloves with his glasses as he began walking to the computer, he flipped it on and looked into a web cam as he pressed record.
"Huey Freeman January 17, 2013… Going back on all leading experiments and testing subjects for the virus I have injected rats with what I hope to be a vaccine to the infected." Huey said into the web cam as he picked up the portable cam and walked to a wall covered by a black tarp.
Huey ripped the black tarp off the wall to reveal 20 solid, bullet proof glass cages with giant rats in each one. But the rats were screaming in a high pitch voice and had no fur as their skin was brown and grey with red eyes and fanged teeth. They screamed and smashed their heads into the glass trying to get at Huey. Huey just stood their staring at them intensely.
"Subjects all seem to have had no difference from any chemical injected into them. From previous studies I have found out animals cannot get the infection from air-born but only from physical contact with the infected. Subjects 1-5 have no reaction to chemical DE. Subjects 6-9 no difference…10-15. Are now dead.. and no change for 16-20…" Huey sighed as he was about to turn off the web cam but froze when he looked to cage 18.
"Wait… subject 18 seems to be different." Huey looked at the rat who was calmly walking around and had more color than the others as its fangs were still their.
"Color returning and personality is becoming calmer… Breathing at a better rate… I think.. That the vaccine is…working" Huey stared wide eye at the rat as it calmly sat their looking at him yet not acting as angry as the others.
After half an hour of studying and typing on a computer Jazmine called to him from up stairs. He set down his reading glasses and rubbed his eyes as he took off his gloves and cote and set them on the rack close to him as he walked up the stairs and turned off the light. Walking into the kitchen Huey saw Jazmine setting down a plate of pasta in his spot with a glass of tea. She smiled at him as she sat down across from his seat. Huey walked and sat down in his seat as he began to eat.
"So how was it?" Jazmine asked taking a bite of her pasta.
"It was different... One of the rats actually has calmed down and color has returned to it." Huey looked her in the eyes.
"Really? That's wonderful! Isn't it?" Jazmine asked smiling.
"Yes... Were another step closer." Huey said taking a bite of his pasta as well.
"Your so smart Huey" Jazmine praised him as she giggled.
Huey just continued to eat but felt his heart beat slightly faster when she praised him like that. Jazmine then told him about how tomorrow she was going to go pick some vegetables in a garden not to far from here. Sam stood beside the table eating his own pasta Jazmine made him. As Jazmine finished she washed her plate and Huey finished so she washed his for him. Jazmine then took Sam upstairs to get a bath. She sat on the edge of the tub scrubbing him with soap. Then as she was rinsing him Huey walked in and sat down on the other side of the edge of the tub staring at Sam as he was being rinsed off. Jazmine giggled as Sam shook some water off and it flew on Huey and herself. Huey just closed his eyes in annoyance and then glared at the dog but Jazmine kept giggling.
Suddenly a beeping sound was heard as Huey's eyes hardened more then normal and looked to Jazmine as she stopped giggling and had on a sad face. Sighing Jazmine stood and turned the water off as Sam jumped out and shook again. Huey got up and watched a sad Jazmine walk out with Sam next to her. Huey walked to the window next to the tub as he saw the sun set light up the sky in a bright orange. He looked into it and then pulled giant metal wall's out to cover the window and locks it. Walking around the house Huey pulls metal covers over all the windows and locking it with re-enforced steal as he locked the door more and then turned off all the lights. Turning to the table he grabbed the large gun that slung over the shoulder.
Huey walked to the stairs and took a look around the room to each metal covered door and window as he sighed again and began to walk up the stairs. Once he got to his room he saw Jazmine sitting on his bed with her hands in her lap and a scared look on her face. This was nothing new as she did this every night. Came to his room and he would watch over her as she slept. Walking over to her she looked up and into his eyes. Jazmine slipped off her shoes and crawled fully on the bed and Sam jumps up and snuggled around her thy and whimpers lightly as if he could feel her fear. Huey walked around and took off his shirt as he sat next to her with his gun still in hand.
It got very quiet as the sun outside went completely down the night took over. The quietness made Jazmine shake slightly as huey looked down to her and placed the gun down slightly as he leaned down slightly to her ear.
"Don't worry… Night will pass and the sun will come up like always." He whispered and leaned back up.
A very faint growl was heard outside as Jazmine sat up and grabbed onto Huey with her eyes closed tight. Huey couldn't stop himself from wrapping her in his arms and let her whimper slightly into his chest to muffle her sounds as growls we heard faintly from on the streets. Clutching her to him was something he did almost every night when she would get like this. His mind began to wonder slightly as the thought back to the earlier days.
Huey wiped sweat from his head as he sighed and looked at his work. He was drilling metal, steel covers over the windows all over the house. It had been 2 days since the passing of his and Jazmine's family. The seriousness of the infection had hit the city hard as Huey would watch from the roof with his binoculars the people in the city.
At first they all seemed to grow pail and savage as they tore threw streets and fights broke out. Then hair began to fall out as everyone was sickly bald. Even the government army people had been affected as they showed the same symptoms. Sure there were people that were like him and Jazmine and they were locked into their houses. But the reason Huey was putting metal covers on the windows was because he saw something horrible happen.
That morning he looked into the binoculars and saw a woman running from mob of people who had torn clothes, no hair, and very pale and dirty looking skin color. At first Huey thought it was a just a mugging but then he saw the woman trip and the infected people swarm around her as each one grabbed at her and began to rip her clothes and then they began to rip at her flesh. Huey remembered the look as they ripped her organs out and the woman was still alive to see her own intestines be pulled out and feasted upon before she died about 20 seconds later. The people ravaged her body and ate everything and even licked the blood off the ground.
The virus was not known to be like this. Huey just felt vomit in his through, as he swallowed it, and looked back to see them all looking for more. He realized they won't stop at just that, so that's when he went to work on making the house like an impenetrable fort. First he's putting steal guards on all the windows. Jazmine was upstairs in his bed sleeping. Jazmine wasn't like him and he knew she was still grieving over her loss, and he was also very heart broken of his loss as well but it hasn't been the first time he had lost a family. So he would put his emotions aside and stay strong as he would make this place the safest he could for her.
The next day Huey had seen no people or infected people on the street in the daylight. And that got his curiosity going but not enough to risk going down to the city to investigate yet. At one point he saw an infected walkout of a building but screamed at the light and ran back inside. Huey wrote this down in a notebook he kept his research in.
A week later Huey realized they were running low on food and Huey needed some more weapons to protect them with. So at first Huey would get up early and secure on a bullet proof vest under his black cote and 3 guns with his sword at his side and a hunter knife tucked in his boot. He stood in front of the door ready to walk out into the light when a voice stopped him.
"Huey?" Jazmine whispered.
Huey didn't turn around as he knew he was caught. Jazmine had barley gotten out of bed but she was slowly getting better with his help.
"What are you doing? Are you leaving?" Jazmine seemed scared.
"I have to go and look around for food or anything that could help us survive." Huey said softly yet sternly.
"No Huey don't go and leave me! Take me with you! I can help!" Jazmine began to cry.
"Jazmine… I can't take you… It's to dangerous. I can't put you in danger." Huey said solemnly.
Jazmine ran down the stairs and hugged him from behind.
"No Huey please don't leave me alone! I cant lose you too!" Jazmine sobbed into his back with her arms wrapped around his back and to his torso tightly.
"..I-I have to go… I promise you Jazmine.. I will come back to you. I will never leave you" Huey whispered as he felt her grip tighten for a second but then began to go slack and finally drop off his figure.
Huey turned around and looked down to see her head looking down as tears were still in her eyes. Taking her cheek in his hands he lifted her face up to meet his and their eyes locked.
"I promise" Huey whispered before she nodded slowly and he let go and began to walk to the door.
"Wait! Take Sam! He can help you!" Jazmine said as Sam trotted over to Huey.
"No I ca-" Huey was interrupted by the look on Jazmine's face and he sighed but nodded.
Jazmine smiled slightly as she watched Huey turn and unlock the door and he began to step out. Quickly Jazmine ran to a steel covered window and pulled a small cover open about the size and distance of her eyes like a peep hole and watched him run across the street to her house first. Sam kept up with him as Huey went to the door and the door was already open as Sam ran in. Huey hear a bark and for some reason took it as a sign and walked into the house. Furniture was overturned and it was pretty dirty. Walking threw the once perfectly clean, happy filled house Huey went to the kitchen and began to grab food from the fridge and cabinets.
Filling up the backpack he brought, cleaning out the food he was ready to leave when he walked by a picture frame on the floor with broken glass as it seemed to have fallen a while ago and shattered. The picture under the shattered glass was of Jazmine in the arms of her Dad and her mother smiling at them both. With a sigh Huey picked up the picture and put it in his pocket as he began to walk to the door.
Sam was very alert as Huey peeked around the corner and Sam ran out as he began to sniff the air. At the sound of a bark Huey made a dash for the house. As he got to the door, it flew open and Jazmine stood their as he ran in and closed the door. Taking a deep breath and releasing it, Huey for once since Jazmine has known him, smirked to her. Smiling back she was about to tell him something but he shoved something into her hands. Looking down her breath got caught in her through.
"I figured… you should have something…" Huey mumbled as he shoved his hands in his pockets and turned his head away.
Jazmine smiled softly as a tear fell down her cheek and she looked back up to Huey while clutching the picture close to her.
"Huey… Thank you" She whispered.
After a few seconds of silence Huey cleared his through and began to walk past her with the food.
"Uh.. um I need to go do some research.. So we make the food last for now.. Ok?" Huey didn't wait for a reply as he walked to the basement door and closed it as he went to set up his computer he brought down from his room to make his own research lab of some sort down here.
Huey felt his eyes flutter open and he saw blurry visions as his eyes adjusted to the light. Suddenly after a few seconds he shot up gasping and frantically looking around. First of all, the metal coverings were rolled back so sun light pored into the room, and he was alone in bed.
"Jazmine?" Huey whispered as he jumped out of bed.
