Chapter 5 His Weapon
Claire walked into the entrance of the K-Mart store, searching for supplies. Her footsteps can never be heard in the said place. A little while after, she heard pounding on the wooden door. Claire carefully stepped forward to see what the cause of the noise was. From the other side of the store, Claire saw a door leading to the storage room and two undead were trying to get in. Then, she heard a soft cry of a girl that made her alerted, aimed her combat shotgun at the head of the undead and fired at them. When she saw that the place was already clear, Claire ran to the door and opened it.
The teen already accepted death when she heard the pounding on the door. They were there again, pounding on the door and wanting to eat her. She hugged herself and buried her face on her knees. She knew what will happen next, the door will open and the undead will eat her. Then it goes, the door swung open and a voice of a woman can be heard all over the room. She lifted her head and saw red strands. The older woman smiled down at her.
"Hey, you're safe. You don't have to worry anymore."
Dr. Isaacs is looking at the naked woman lying down on the hospital bed in front him as her finger moved a little. He's admiring the perfect features of the woman. Her hair, thin brows, her lips, the shape of her body. He's smiling but not because of the sight before him but because of the plan he made in his mind. He suddenly remembered that it's about time to inject the woman the virus he's holding. That virus is not a typical virus that they injected to Alice before. This one is the improved one. It has Alice's blood on it. He hoped that this formula will make the woman extraordinarily strong and that he can control.
Dr. Isaacs grabbed a hold on the vial and injected it to the woman. Then the White Queen appeared at the other side of the woman's bed. "Is this one of your experiments, Dr. Isaacs?"
Dr. Isaacs looked at the White Queen and smiled. "Yes, this woman is my weapon against Project Alice."
"What do you mean?"
"Once she wakes up, I can control whatever I want her to do."
"But you're injecting her with the T-Virus."
"This is not just a T-Virus. This is the improved formula of the T-Virus." Dr. Isaacs looked at the White Queen. "It has Alice's blood on it. Once she wakes up, she will be extraordinarily strong."
"Chairman Wesker is asking the progress of your experiments." The white Queen interrupted.
"My experiment? Everything is going fine here." Dr. Isaacs put everything back to its original place.
"He wants you to report immediately or else he will pull everything out he invested in your experiments." Dr. Isaacs eyed the White Queen with a composed posture.
"I will report to him immediately. Tell him that."
"Okay. Goodbye Dr. Isaacs." Then the White Queen disappeared.
Dr. Isaacs was left in his laboratory, alone, motionless. He never knew that Wesker could do such thing like what the White Queen said to him. After all this years of his loyalty to him, that was all he can pay him? Although, Dr. Isaacs's experiments sometimes fail. Just like the clones of Alice he's experimenting on. He never got the perfect features of Alice. And lately, domesticating the undead. He tried it once, resulting death of some of his co-doctors. And now, his latest experiment is the woman in front him. Dr. Isaacs got nearer to the woman, eyed her and breathed heavily. Then he began stroking the woman's hair.
"You are my future. You will take revenge for me, to Alice and to that bastard Wesker." Dr. Isaacs started lifting the woman's body and put her back in the watered container.
Kmart has grown up with Claire's side. She never left the older woman wherever she goes. Sometimes Carlos and the others complimented her of becoming a good leader once Claire is gone. But the thought shook her. She never wanted Claire to leave her in any kind. She wanted the leader to be with her all the time because now, in this crappy world she's the only family she has and she always looked up to her as her second mother, big sister and best friend. If Claire died, she will be crazy as hell.
It's already twelve in the afternoon and Kmart is still in the Hummer, sleeping. Kmart is not usually this late, Claire thought. The convoy leader is almost done with her work when she realized that Kmart still hasn't shown up. Claire went back to the Hummer and there, she found Kmart sleeping. Claire was pissed and put her hands on her hips.
"Kmart get your ass up out here!" Claire yelled at Kmart, but Kmart didn't respond or even stir a little.
"Kmart!" Claire began shaking Kmart to wake her when she realized that Kmart is hot. She stopped shaking her and checked on her.
"Kmart?" Claire's pissed off mood was gone and was replaced by nervousness. "Kmart you have a fever." Claire covered Kmart with blanket and carried her to the med van.
"Betty! Betty I need your help."
"What happened?" Betty frowned.
"Kmart is sick. She has a fever."
"Lay her on the bed." Claire gently laid Kmart on the bed and Betty started checking on her.
Out of the blue, Carlos came rushing towards them and saw Claire trembling. "Claire what happened?"
"Kmart is sick."
"You're trembling, are you okay?"
"Yeah, I was just confused but I'll be fine."
Claire took of Kmart. She never left the teen's side and let Carlos lead the convoy under her supervision. Claire stayed awake during the night because Kmart has a habit of waking up in the middle of the night, vomiting. Until one day, Kmart finally got better. And now, it's Kmart's turn to pay for Claire's sacrifices. Kmart learned that it was Claire who really took care of her, that's why she's very thankful that she has her.
Dr. Isaacs is busy watching Project #123 on the screen, trying to survive from the first phase of the test he has given her, but unfortunately, she failed, just like the previous ones. Dr. Isaacs is already tired and sick of this. Putting clones on a test then at the end, they will all just fail.
Dr. Isaacs put her pen down and looked away from the monitor, not wanting to see the death of Alice's clone. And from the corner of his eyes, he saw the woman in the watered container he called his "future" stir a little. He looked up at her and creased a brow.
"Did you see that?" Dr. Isaacs asked and looked at his co-doctors. "Did you see her move?"
"No sir." One of his subordinates replied, shaking his head.
Alice arrived at the convoy at the time when they needed extraordinary help the most. Using Alice's superhuman skill, she diverted the direction of the flame coming from the flamethrower coming ahead to Carlos. But instead of being thankful, the convoy thought her as a freak, monster and everything. Well, Claire didn't deny that, because she too got scared of the new arrived woman in her convoy. Having someone like Alice in their lives means danger! But Carlos assured her that there's nothing to worry about her, that the blonde woman is good natured, kind and harmless, so Claire gave Alice chance to stay in her convoy until whenever she wanted to. Eventually, the two women became friends that made Kmart felt a fang of jealousy towards Alice because Claire is giving the older woman more attention than her. Well, it's just because at this stage in Claire's life, Alice seemed to be the only one who could understand her. But in the end, everything was finally fixed. Kmart understood what happened, what Claire had gone through and why the leader acted like that.
It's already dark and the convoy is having their wonderful dinner. Well, they were really lucky they found a store full of supplies earlier. But not enough for all of these people to feed their stomachs all the way to Arcadia, but enough for them to have till half or even quarter away from there.
Alice is busy loading the truck of the supplies they got from the store when her peripheral vision caught sight of the approaching figure. She knows who it is, so she looked up and greeted him.
"Hey there Carlos." Alice smiled.
"Need help?" Carlos smiled back.
"No, I'm almost done." Alice returned to her job while Carlos leaned on the truck.
"Yeah, I got it. You are stronger than me."
Alice grinned at her friend. "I didn't even say that." Carlos chuckled.
"Oh come one. As if you don't know."
"Let's say, I'm just too humble to admit." The two stared at each other for a moment, eyes locked together.
"So, looks like your plan is getting better."
"Yeah, and I'm glad about it."
"So, when are you planning to leave?"
"Why are you so eager for me to leave?" Alice asked, smiling and continued to mock Carlos.
"Oh, you know I've always wanted you to stay but you always leave."
"Because I have to. And to answer your question I'll leave before dawn."
"That early? Carlos eyed Alice again.
"Yes, and you know that nothing will change my mind."
Carlos sighed heavily. "Fine."
"Take care of all of them, will yah?" Alice started up on her heels to head back to the Hummer.
"Yeah, I'll look after her." Alice turned to look at Carlos again.
"No. Not like that. Don't even dare…"
"Oh, I know what you mean. I wouldn't dare, I promise. And I don't like Claire haunting me because of that." Carlos smirked.
"Oh, I'm sure you would love that." Alice smiled before leaving her friend.
Carlos watched Alice go, with his smile still on his face. But deep down inside, he's nervous and not confident with the task Alice gave him.
"Guess I have to do it on my own." Carlos said to no one in particular.
AN: Confused? So am I. Haha.
