A/N: Okay, so I just watched From Beyond, so here is what I need to say: KATHERINE IN THIS STORY IS NOT KATHERINE FROM 'FROM BEYOND.' I am also writing a Fanfic based on it, and posting it in the ReAn section. This one is a shorty.
Plus, I'm sorry, I just get out of hand with the changing Herbert's character and stuff and making him head over heels. I'm just excited that I'm giving him a girlfriend! YAY! Less conversation in this chapter. This one is in HWest's POV.
Katherine was wearing a black tube-top. Why? Because she loves to seduce me. And of course, I succumb to this only because I am getting away from my work for too long and getting distracted. It was the first time she had worn anything that showed bare flesh for a long time, obviously because I had scarred her, much like many others, as soon as I showed her what my creation was. At least she didn't take it as bad as Dan's previous whore, who promptly died of fright when a re-animated man got out of the basement.
I had gotten out of hand with kissing her, however. I would be sure not to do that until she had done something truly great. However the soft feel of her skin and the lure of her reagent-green eyes did make me want to occasionally. Yes, I do realize that I am being very love-starved here, unlike in previous events. "HERBERRRT!!!!! STOP DAYDREAMING AND GET THIS FUCKING ZOMBIE OFF OF ME!" Daniel was being attacked by a re-animate that I had taken my eyes off of. I quickly rushed over, taking a pitchfork, and impaled the thing while picking it off of him. "It was...stronger this time." He said, out of breath as he laid on the floor.
"Probably because of the new reagent. Katherine contributed." I said with a smile. She was different than all of the females he had brought home, smarter, incredible, extremely beautiful, more work-minded (but not much)and overall witty. I walked upstairs, straightening my tie, and Dan followed, obviously wanting food after eight hours working on the serum. And there was no food.
"We need to go to the store. Go tell Kat, I'll get the car warmed up." I nodded and walked to my room where Katherine was sleeping on my abandoned bed with music playing on the stereo. She woke up and looked at me, irritated for the apparent reason that I had turned it off.
"Daniel and I are going to the corner store to get groceries. Don't go downstairs." She mumbled something softly, pulling a purple comforter that she had brought over her. "Goodnight." I turned off the light and walked out. Smiling, I went to the car, a white pickup truck adored by Dan. A random mixtape obviously made by Shelley blared. After giving Daniel a brief look that screamed TURN IT OFF, I walked to the other side of the truck and got in, making him plague me with the ugly truth.
"And now I know you love her."
"You're acting like you do." I refused to speak after this, for the truth would unleash itself. "Are you staying in the car?" He said after a while of driving to the supermarket.
"Of course. I have to dream about Katherine, don't I?" I said sarcastically, even though I probably would. I just couldn't get over her, could I? But I had better things to do, such as work on reagent, get corpses, and...teach?
