Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles

A/N: I have no idea why I am writing another fic when I have tons that are unfinished, but I couldn't get this storyline out of my head.


Sarah and John sat at the kitchen table eating breakfast when Cameron approached them. "We have to go." She said, speaking simply.

Sarah and John both stared at her sceptically. "What do you mean we have to go?" Sarah asked.

"It's October 24th, my mission has changed. We have to go."

"Mission has changed? Go where?" John asked, feeling incredibly unsafe. He couldn't think about what could happen if Cameron wouldn't protect him anymore.

"We have to go to Seattle, Washington."

"What the hell is in Seattle?" Sarah asked, getting up from her chair.

"Someone there is in trouble. We have to help her."

"Who is this person?"

"My programmer. Pack. We have to leave in forty minutes"

"What happens in forty minutes?" John started.

"John, she's not going to spill." His mom reasoned.

"So, we just go with her?"

They looked over to Cameron, who was already loading their weapons into the car. "I don't think she's going to give us a choice."

"Yeah, you're right."


"So, we packed up all our stuff and drove way over the speed limit to end up at a high school?" John asked.

"This is where she is."

All of a sudden, shots rang out from inside the school. "We're late." Cameron said as she stopped the car and ran into the school.

Sarah followed her. "John! Bring the car closer and wait for us!" She called out.

Students started running out of the building with Sarah and Cameron rushing in. More shots were fired. They made a sharp turn towards the gymnasium when they saw it. A terminator. He was tall, and buff, like a body builder. Definitely looked out of place at a high school.

They watched as the Terminator walked into the gym. They followed close behind.

Out of the corner of her eye, Sarah could see a young girl hiding behind the bleachers.

"That's her." Cameron spoke. "Her name is Emily Woodsman. Get her out of here. I'll stop him." Then she started walking casually towards the Terminator.

Sarah shook her head as she slowly crept toward the gym's bleachers. "Hey Emily." Sarah whispered. The young girl looked over, shaking with fear. "My name is Sarah. I'm here to help you."

Emily nodded.

"Ok, take my hand and we're going to run ok?"

Emily nodded again, taking Sarah's hand.

"Alright, one, two… three!" They sprinted out of the gym, the terminator too preoccupied with Cameron.

The halls had now emptied as they ran to the front doors where John was waiting in the car.

Sarah opened the back door for Emily. "C'mon, get in."

"What aren't you driving away?" Emily asked.

"We have to wait for Cameron." John said.

"That crazy chick who went in to fight that thing?"

"That thing is a Terminator and it was trying to kill you." John stated.

Emily looked at him in horror.

Sarah put an arm around the teen. "John, shut up. Don't scare her like that."

"Well, if there's a Terminator after her, she really needs to know these things."

John started the car when he saw Cameron running towards them. "Move over." She said to John as she got into the drivers seat.

"How much time do we have to get out of here?" Sarah asked.

Cameron pulled a bloody computer chip out of her jacket. "A lot of time."

Emily shook in Sarah's arms. "Can I go home now?"

"Just to get supplies for yourself." Cameron said simply. "You have to come with us now."
