This story is brought to you by my imagination, too much left 4 dead late at night, reading the fan fiction "The Hybrid" by Apocalypse Survivor(I hope I spelled that right!) and "Living with Infected" by Maxforce, and getting their permission to use the AU they are currently in.

If you haven't gone and read these awesome fan fictions yet DO IT NOW!...well. No, read their stories first and mine might actually make more sense or it won't. We won't know till we try 'Eh?

Putting this up at T for now...Will probably make its way to M if I put some chapters out .

Well um...I hope you enjoy this fan fiction, It is my first one so reviews are greatly appreciated, who knows maybe you can make the story better O.o

Disclaimer: I don't own Left 4 Dead etc, etc. I DO however own all these OCs(Just because I had to pump my friends for their char information doesn't mean they own them :D) and the AU goes to Maxforce/ Apoc Surv

And much tanks to Vindicator for Alpha reading and Maxforce for Beta Reading!

Now, without further adieu, enjoy!

Edit: Minor grammar fixes

1 Month after First Infection

0800 Hours, Undisclosed Location

"What could she possibly want me for this time?" he thought as he opened the door without a sound. "Ma'am? You asked for me?" the soldier said as he closed the door and walked up to the desk.

"Yes, Lieutenant. Do you think yourself capable of leading two squads into Philadelphia to secure some "lost" property of ours?"

"I...Yes, I think I can ma'am. When will we be deployed, if I may ask?", he said with artificial confidence in his voice.

Her eyes narrowed at him before saying, "Good. The folder on my desk; take it, study it, and return it. You have until 0700 of Monday, next week, for that is when you will be going into Philadelphia. Understood?"

"Y-yes ma'am, crystal clear." He picked up the folder and quickly went to walk out of the room before she could stop him to say,

"Oh, and try not to die, it is very annoying to do all the paperwork that comes with your failure."

With chills running down his spine, he looked at the contents of the folder once he was outside the room. He knew the day could only get worse from there.

He slumped down against the wall after quickly looking over the first ten pages. Willing himself to get up and get back to the barracks, wondering who he pissed off to get this assignment. He knew him and his squads were going to die. He also knew that she didn't give a damn, SHE just wanted her pet project back alive...or dead. The only chance he had was to find out EVERYTHING on them, like were they had safehouses and where they kept supplies beside in a safehouse.

And that's all folks! For now at least excuse any bad typing as this was originally done on and finished at 4:00 AM

Wow its now 5:00 PM of the next day and I had to do some serious cleanup work on this. Don't be alarmed! My chapters will hopefully not be this short...I have a lot of ideas and have planned out most my chapters...Now to write them is a whole other story
