I'm back after a long break from writing, this is the first part of my new novel, hope you all enjoy it. I do not own any of the RE characters except my OCs which were my own creation sourced from many inspirations.
Though I am grateful in a way to still be alive, to those who brought me back know only this: your time will come...
I remember little about my 'rebirth' only that it consisted of bright lights, screaming voices and the weak fearful of my existence. What fools they were to think that if separated from my supposed superiors that I would reform. Such an assumption would cost two their lives.
Cowards the lot of them! Faceless entities that do not deserve to populate the earth, only those who are truly superior shall be still left alive when everything crumbles to ruin.
There were four in the car after my 'rescue' I had already been given the order to return however these criminals had to pay for what they did to me, leave me for dead on the cold rocks of a running river. The woman with the short black hair along with the man who seemed to be the only one armed out of the group were going to be my targets, they were the ones I despised the most so they would be the ones to go. The child and the dark skinned man weren't so important and frankly I barely knew them. I just wish that damn kid would stop staring at me! What was her problem? She was wrecking my concentration!
The car's stopped and everyone, except the stare kid and I, jumped out and opened up the front engine compartment. I now briefly take the time to compliment my soon to be victims for being so clever, they found the GPS tracking devise that all Umbrella Corporation vehicles have though, when deactivated finding the vehicle is made all the more difficult. With the tracker disposed off the trio went back inside only now they had changed places! No longer was the woman sitting in the back with me, she was in the front with her partner. Names are unimportant so try to keep up!
Again the signal from my superiors flashed across my vision like some kind of neon sign but once again I ignored it. I'll return to them when I'm good and ready! Besides I was having too much fun playing the innocent escapee, but the car was moving into the desert outskirts so I had to act fast. By now I was angry with these criminals, this scum who had thought they had gotten away with their dirty deeds. I have to make a move now before they turn on me, they'd like to do that those murderers, those killers! I'll show them I'm something to be feared, cowards, unworthy beings!! They have no place to run to now.
I struggle to recall their deaths though everything is so foggy and far off now; ironically the ones who died weren't the ones I'd initially chosen. The dark skinned man uttered a profanity and a surprised squeak when I grabbed a hold of his neck and squeezed while twisting it to one side. I can still feel the sweat and warmth of his skin on my hand. By now I was ready to take care of the driver and the passenger, he was easy to shift aside as I attempted to control the car despite being restrained by a tight seat beat. That child won't stop screaming! Why won't she stop? She's yelling things at me like any frightened individual would, her voice is high pitched and grating on my nerves like iron fingers on a blackboard.
Finally too much, out she goes. I push her away and also manage to free myself, strangely everyone is hanging upside down, the dark skinned man's body is dangling limply from the floor of the car, which is now the ceiling. Though I don't remember the vehicle turning upside down I crawl outside into the harsh sandy winds of the desert. The kid's stopped crying now, she's lying on the ground a few feet away from me not moving but such small things are meaningless to me, all I want to hear now is that woman and her male partner scream.
I move towards the woman, she'll be the first, she was always the leader, and I'm going to enjoy this. Before I can do anything her partner cries out, he has a gun but it's a peashooter, a 9mm handgun or is it a magnum? Either way they'll soon be joining their friends. He yells at me to stop, I keep coming, he raises the gun but my abilities have grown since our last encounter, I send the gun flying from his hands and now nothing can stop me.
Suddenly pain! Horrible, screeching pain in my head, so loud, so agonising. I drop to the sandy ground nursing my head. Why won't it stop? They must have grown impatient my superiors; they want me to return now. I hear gunfire and I now know that those criminals have discovered my true murderous intentions. I feel a dull pain in one of my arms and shoulder. They've shot me! How dare they!
The pain is too intense now, I feel as though my head will explode, but I have to leave as staying here to wipe out two weak individuals isn't worth it…besides there will be other times. As I stand, the wind blows through the thin white lab coat I'm wearing, it burns through my unprotected flesh like fire but it is nothing compared to what is going through my head.
So I leave the pair where they are, I turn my back on them and start down the black bitumen highway, sprinting, the road is warm and feels sharp under my feet. Gradually the pain fades, my feet are bleeding, but my revenge for the pain will not fade. I see the guardhouse but the sentries have not seen me so I take another step closer…
