Chapter 11 - Same as Always
Raccoon City, Flower Street, 11:45 AM, 'Dante, Shane, Davis, Alan, Max, Stuart, Marc, Louise'
"I think it was two days, yes I'm sure, two days ago that everything started to go to hell, I'm not exactly sure what to think on the situation. So many questions fill my head that, that I wish I could just ask them and hope to get an answer, but that of course wouldn't be happening. What happened? How are there zombies? Why? Did anyone else make it? Is there any hope of escaping? Those are just a few of the many questions that I'm sure everyone has right now, problem is, how the hell do we find the answer to those questions? It seems impossible. Zombies, it's like some fucked up movie that just came to life, but of all places in the world for this to happen, why Raccoon City? How did it start in Raccoon City to begin with? I suppose it doesn't matter now anyway. Captain Jacobs, Nick, Glen, Henderson, they have been added to the list of victims that have been taken by this nightmare, and now I stand here, in front of this warehouse, perfectly safe and protected, with three survivors, Captain Shane Miller, a veteran Swat officer and former member of STARS, and his team, Davis Green, another rookie who I met at the academy, a good friend of mines, Alan McCoy, skillful sharpshooter and pointman, Max Engleheart, expert in heavy weaponry and close quarters combat specialist. And Derek Striker, helicopter pilot and the damn best when it comes to flying. Maybe it was fate that I was to meet them here, well whatever the case, I'm not alone now, but I still have to make up for the deaths of my teammates, it was my fault that they died, and I swear I will do everything in my ability to avenge them, even if it kills me."
"Something on your mind Dante?"
Dante knew who the voice belonged to and decided not to face him. "I'm just thinking Davis, do you think we'll make it to the Raccoon General Hospital?"
Davis sat down next to him and replied. "Yeah I'm sure, we're all ready to take on those zombies, we can beat them no problem, they don't stand a chance."
"That's not what I meant Davis..."
"I meant, do you think we'll all make it there alive? Do you think we'll make it there without anymore of us getting killed?" Dante said.
Davis shrugged. "You got me on that one, however I do believe there is a high chance that we'll all get out of here alive. We just need to be careful."
"Maybe so, but if only you knew what else was out there..." Dante replied.
Before he could question what Dante meant, another voice spoke up.
"Anything wrong lads?"
"No sir." Dante and Davis both replied.
Shane nodded and stood next to both of them. "Not very often do you get involved in a situation such as this. It's definitely a first for me, in fact, I'm damn well sure it's a first for everyone."
The two swat rookies just nodded at his words. "So, anyone waiting for you back home?"
Dante looked at him. "No, no one, I've been living on my own for the past year now..."
"My mom and dad are still waiting for me to come back home. Honestly, I miss them too, I should have just left a while ago, way before any of this shit started." Davis explained.
Shane gave a slight smile and put his arms around the two officers. "Don't worry son, I'll get you back to your mom and dad."
"Thank you sir, that means alot you know." Davis replied.
Dante managed a small smile and turned to the ruined streets ahead, hopefully it will be easier than they make it out to be, because he could sure use some peace and quiet right about now, and even then, that's something that is impossible to find right now in Raccoon City, thanks to the zombies.
Just then, more cries echoed nearby.
"Sir! Zombies approaching!" Alan shouted from above.
Shane nodded and picked up his MP5. "Alright lads, let's get to back work."
Raccoon City, Central Street Station, 11:50 AM, 'Carlos, Jerry, Mikhail, Nicholai'
"You let them go out there by themselves! And you didn't even go with them!"
Jerry sat down and took in a deep breath. "Sorry Carlos, but someone needed to stay here and look after Mikhail, Nicholai is already far to busy trying to figure out how start this damn thing."
Carlos sighed and sat down next to the wounded and unconscious Mikhail. "How's Mikhail been anyway?"
Jerry smiled at him. "He's a fighter, a damn good one, hopefully Rav and Justin will be back with some first aid stuff, then we can patch him up."
"Right..." Carlos got to his feet.
"Where are you going?" Jerry asked.
Carlos opened the door and turned to him. "I'm going to go and find Rav and Justin, I can't let them be out there by themselves, you just stay here and keep looking after Mikhail alright?"
Jerry nodded. "O-Ok...?"
"I'll be back soon." Carlos exited the car and closed the door behind him.
Jerry turned to Mikhail who let out a quiet groan. "Hold on Mikhail..."
Raccoon City Hall, Outside Raccoon Press, 11:55 AM, 'Jill, Alex, Bryan, Jamie, Danny, Connor, Lucas, Rav, Justin, Mia, Matt, Rob, Pierce'
It was as if time had suddenly stopped, Alex, Bryan, Danny and Connor glared at Matt, Rob and Pierce, the three who also returned their glares. But it was unknown to everyone else why they were all looking at eachother like that, but when Alex and Matt exchanged words, Jill and Mia were shocked to find out that both of them knew eachother.
Matt slowly removed his sunglasses to reveal his dark blue eyes, everyone could see something of anger in them. "How long has it been? Nearly four years?"
Alex nodded. "Yeah, nearly...of all people, I never expected to see you again."
Matt kept his eyes on Alex, not even so much as blinking. "Yeah, I never expected to see you again. I never expected to see you still hanging around with your little army either."
Alex raised a brow. "Really? Well I never expected to see you still hanging around with your goons. But I did expect one thing if we ever met again, your still the same as always."
Both just continued to glare at eachother, everyone could tell that just by the look in their eyes, they looked like they wanted to kill eachother.
"Ok let's just stop for a minute..." Jill said managing to silence them. "Ok, Alex, Matt, you guys, all know eachother?"
Alex and Matt both kept their eyes aimed at eachother but nodded, Jill continued. "Ok so what exactly is the problem?"
"Jill, has Matt been anything close to an asshole while you've been moving around with him?" Alex asked.
Jill gave a slight nod in confusion, it was like Alex was psychic or something considering the fact that Matt was indeed an asshole ever since she met him. "Yes...?"
Alex nodded in return. "That's the problem, he can't let go the past."
"The past?" Jill replied and turned to Matt. "What is he talking about Matt?"
Matt spoke up. "Your talking about back when we were in highschool aren't you?"
"Yeah, are you still holding a grudge against us even after all of this time?" Alex asked.
Matt replied. "After what you did to us, I could never forget, I never will. I'm actually wondering what's stopping me from kicking your ass right now."
Alex smirked. "Maybe you know you can't kick my ass, atleast, not without Rob and Pierce helping you out, that's how you always fought back in highschool, you would always get Rob and Pierce to back you up. You three would be known throughout the entire school, going around terrorizing other pupils and taking their money when they did absolutely nothing to you. But when you tried to do it with me, you didn't expect Bryan and the others to be with me. You and your buddies got your asses kicked for the very first time, you couldn't handle the embarrassment so the three of you left."
Matt raised a brow and remained silent, he hated to admit it, but he honestly could not think of a reply to those words, instead, Matt took out his two colts and aimed them at Alex. "How about I just shoot your fucking head off right now and be done with it?"
"Put your fucking guns down Matt, we ain't got time for this..." Bryan said.
Matt looked at him. "Your still short Bryan..."
Bryan just glared at him. "Yeah, and I can still kick your ass."
Matt took a step back after noticing everyone else had their guns on him. "See Alex? Your nothing without anyone to back you up, you never were, and I'll never forget how you guys beat me up, I'll kill you for that. I'll fucking kill you!"
Alex opened his arms and spoke again. "Go ahead and shoot me then Matt. What will it accomplish?"
"Payback obviously, the payback I deserve..." Matt replied.
He was just about to pull the trigger until...
"BACK OFF!" Bryan leaped in and kicked Matt's guns out of his hands. This forced Pierce to drop Rob and attack Bryan.
Matt quickly went for his guns but Alex rushed at him and delivered a kick to the gut, however Matt managed to quickly recover and swung his leg forward and hit Alex in the shoulder.
Pierce threw several punches but Bryan dodged them all. The brawl didn't last long after Bryan swung his leg and hit Pierce in the shin causing him to fall to the ground and growl in pain.
Alex threw another punch but Matt blocked it with both of his hands and pushed him away. "You can't beat me Alex! You never could!" Matt said.
"I don't plan on beating you, I don't want to beat you! I want to get out of here! Have you even you realized the current situation that's going on here!" Alex replied.
Matt kicked Alex in the gut causing Alex to take a few steps back. "I'm completely aware of the situation Alex, but with this little reunion, I can't afford to waste this wonderful chance! I will fucking kill you if it's the last thing I do!"
Alex and Matt lunged at eachother and continued to exchange blow after blow, punch after punch, kick after kick, fighting on and on without stopping. "Why are you such an asshole Matt! Why! Why do you have to be the way you are! This world we live in is already crawling with assholes and of all people we had to run into while trying to escape this fucking nightmare, it had to be you! You have to be an asshole! Because your fucking worried that you'll fail at being a good person! Well I'll tell you this, when it comes to assholes, your the fucking king! You never once thought about what it would be like if you had actually tried being a good person!" Alex sent Matt into a wall with a punch.
Matt wiped his mouth with his hand and charged at Alex again. "Say what you want! That's all you can do is talk! That's all you've ever been able to do is talk!" Matt punched Alex in the stomach and threw him into a car. He took one quick look at the others before turning back to Alex. "Speaking of which, where's Andrew and Scott, eh Alex?" Matt said while taking in a couple of heavy breaths.
Alex's eyes widened after he mentioned those two names.
Jamie stayed behind Connor and quietly spoke up. "Shouldn't we do something? I'm positive he's gonna actually try to kill Alex."
Danny shook his head. "No, if this is the only way to sort this out once and for all, leave them be."
Pierce tried to crawl away but Bryan stomped on his back. "Where the hell do you think your going?" Bryan said, Pierce just cursed silently.
Matt smirked. "So from the silence, I'm guessing Andrew and Scott are dead, am I right?"
Alex glared at him, Matt continued. "I knew it, can't say I'm surprised though, Scott was tough, but he had to much of an ego that it cost him his fucking life, Andrew on the other hand was just a weakling, a fucking nerd who no one liked. Honestly it's actually a good thing he's dead, he was no good to you in the first place, unless he always did your homework then he definitely would have had some worth."
Now he just crossed the line. He crossed the line. He crossed the fucking line. Matt just signed his own death warrant, everyone knew this except Rav, Justin, Mia and Lucas, they were still confused about the whole thing. They could have asked Bryan or Danny about what he was talking about but they were to busy keeping an eye on Matt and making sure he wouldn't resort to some cheap trick to win.
"I say good riddance to Andrew and Scott, this world is better off without them." Matt said.
Alex immediately got back to his feet and rammed himself into Matt. "DON'T YOU TALK ABOUT THEM LIKE THAT!" He shouted and continued to deliver punch after punch.
Matt covered himself with his arms and eventually managed to shove Alex back, however, it didn't last a second as Alex instantly entered a Bare-Knuckle Boxing stance and landed a hit right across Matt's face.
He attacked again, however Alex threw a flurry of punches at him which put Matt into a nonstop dodging position. Alex punched Matt in the stomach and threw him into a wall. "Don't you dare talk about Andrew like that! He was twice the man you'll ever be! It's assholes like you that make this a fucking shit world to live in! This world would be better off if everyone just like you were GONE!"
Alex moved to attack once more but Matt recovered from the last assault and kicked Alex away. Matt got back to his feet and threw off his long red coat, Alex threw off his leather jacket and lunged at him again but Matt was prepared this time and dodged him and shoved Alex into the wall. "You don't know shit Alex!"
Neither of them stopped and continued to attack, clawing and tearing away like they were nothing but a piece of meat to eachother.
Drops of blood started to stain the ground and walls, the fight was getting way beyond serious now if that was even possible, but seeing the ferocity and savageness Alex and Matt where showing, no one, not even Bryan, dared to even to think about stepping in.
"Your nothing but a two faced bastard! And that's all you ever will be Alex! You act like such a nice guy in front of your friends, but inside your a completely different person! Your no different than the people you say make this world a living hell! EVERYONE IS THE SAME!" Matt landed a punch on Alex's face and sent him back a few steps.
Alex just wiped the blood off of his mouth and glared back at Matt, he took a deep breath and managed to calm himself, though no one seemed to notice.

"It's only taken this little fight of ours for me and everyone else to see who you are, we're no different..." Matt said.
Alex shook his head. "Everyone is different if they choose to be Matt..."

"SHUT UP!" Matt punched Alex again. "He could have chosen a good road, but instead he picked the road of a fucking asshole! Just like everyone else does in this world!" Matt continued to attack without letting off, not giving Alex the chance to fight back.
However, Alex managed to counterattack and kicked him away. "What's your problem Matt! Why do you have to take your lifes frustrations out on others!"
"THAT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS! HOW I LIVE MY LIFE IS MY BUSINESS! NOT YOURS!" Matt swung his fist at him but Alex knocked it away and landed another punch across Matt's face.

Matt delivered an uppercut to Alex and successfully got some distance between them. "You gotta stop hiding behind that asshole personality Matt, it's not going to save you, and it's definitely not going to help you, just let go, there's nothing wrong with asking others for help...!"
"SHUT UP!" Matt rammed himself into Alex but unfortunately for him, Alex managed to stay on his feet and threw Matt to the ground.

Matt got back up and lunged at Alex again. "No matter who I went to for help, everyone was just the same as you make me out to be! Assholes! This world is full of em! All I wanted was to live a fucking peaceful life with my mom! But my dad was a fucking bastard to the very core, he would always try and make life hell for us! As if peace itself was a FUCKING CRIME!" Trip The Wire The Sky Comes Crashing Down When Our Worlds Collide
Alex continued to block all of Matt's punches, eventually Matt revealed an opening which allowed Alex to deliver a punch to his chest. "Your father was the asshole! He chose to be one because almost everyone in this world is fucked up! That's proof, you being his legacy is proof! This nightmare we are running from Matt, IS PROOF! You say you wanted to live a happy life and yet you did exactly what your dad had done!"
Matt kicked Alex in the waist and shoved him back with a kick to the gut, after which he managed to kick Alex to the ground. Matt jumped ontop of him and began hammering his fists down at Alex who could only shield his face with his arms. "The bastard always abused my mother, forced us to work just for his own sake! He went to far, I had to force a dark cloud over my head and become what he was to fucking stop him from harming my mom! I ended up in jail for a year JUST FOR PROTECTING SOMEONE I CARED ABOUT!"
This Cloud Won't Always Hover Over Me I've Got A New Obsession It Takes A Fight To See Who You're Supposed To Be And Now Our Worlds Collide
"MATT!" Alex shouted and grabbed Matt's head, he slammed his own head into Matt's head and successfully forced Matt off of him. "You did what had to be done! But you let the world that we live in get to you far to much! You continued to be what he was, you went just as far as him! I UNDERSTAND MATT! You just wanted to protect your mother and live a happy life, but you couldn't go back to being a good person because you were worried it would have made you weak enough to be picked on again!"
Matt jumped at him again but Alex threw his arms around him and restrained him. "We lived in a shithole because of that bastard! I only went after everyone in highschool for their money, I didn't want any trouble! All I wanted was to get enough money so that I could get my mom a house, so she wouldn't have work herself to death day and night for me!"
Jill just continued to watch them fight eachother, but she took a quick glance at the others, everyone was just taken by the event transpiring before their very eyes, Jill saw something in everyones eyes, she herself could feel it too, it wasn't pity, it was close to sorrow, but it was nothing else, she knew what it was though, it was guilt.
The Disguise You Hide Behind Won't Save You Now
"I just wanted to get as much money as possible so I could make my moms life easier! But everyone in this world are just selfish bastards! Who is any better than a father who is supposed to look after his family, instead he does the complete opposite! I try to protect what's left of my family and all I get is trouble for it!" Matt lifted his knee up into Alex's stomach and shoved him back.
So Let's Fuel The Fire And Burn It To The Ground As Our Worlds Collide
"Matt...!" Alex muttered and threw his fist at him but Matt dodged it and delivered a punch to Alex's face. Alex however managed to remain standing.

"I never knew Matt..." Alex landed a hard punch to the side of Matt's head. "I never knew..."
Matt glared at him, he ignored the blood running down his face and charged at Alex again and successfully delivered a kick to his arm.
Alex growled at the pain running through his arm but ignored it and rammed himself into Matt. "If I knew...I could have helped! You know I could have! You should have let me! You should have let me help Matt! Not everyone is like your father! Not everyone is like the people you mentioned! I'm nothing like all of those people! I wanted to help you! I really did! I never wanted it like this, I NEVER DID...!"

Matt lifted his knee into Alex's gut several times but Alex's grip around him only tightened, Matt just glared up at him and for a quick second he caught a glimpse of what could have been a tear.

"I'll help you now Matt..." Alex shoved Matt away and got into a Bare-Knuckle Boxing stance, after which he delivered a flurry of punches, left jab, right jab, straight jab, uppercut, Alex repeated and mixed his pattern of attacks and didn't stop while Matt still stood on his feet.
Trip The Wire The Sky Comes Crashing Down When Our Worlds Collide
"LET GO MATTHEW!" Alex shouted and pulled his fist back, Matt just looked at him one more time before Alex delivered a powerful uppercut that sent Matt flying into a pile of garbage which, fortunately for him, resulted in a soft landing.
"MATT!" Mia ran over to Matt.
Alex fell to his knees and began to breath heavily.
"Alex, you ok?" Lucas asked as he helped Alex to his feet.
"Y-Yeah...I'm fine..." Alex said.
Justin walked over to them and supported Alex. "Let me give you a hand..."
"Thanks...Justin..." Alex replied.
Rav turned to Jill, Jill looked back at her and nodded. "I know Rav, but don't ask me, I'm just as confused as you are."
"Maybe we should wait then, until they feel like talking." Rav said turning to the others.
Pierce went back to supporting Rob, while Bryan, Danny, Jamie and Connor just stood aside and watched as Alex, with Lucas and Justin's help, made his way over to Matt who was slowly regaining consciousness.
"Matt..." Alex said.
Matt looked up at him, he turned to Mia who was wiping the blood off of his face and then turned back to Alex. "Alex..."
Silence followed now, even though the zombies cries echoed in the air, it was as if they didn't notice them at all.
Matt looked at everyone else, he sighed and lay his head down. "Alright..."
