Chapter 1

Disclaimer: No own, no claim NOTHING!

Summary: I don't know if this was the right thing to do, but I felt I had to end 'Salvation' where I did & start a new 'book' in this story, so I did, Thanks to all who stuck with me, thanks to all of you guys that took the time to review, it really means a lot to me. Again, this is just one person's vision out of many, thanks for considering it (-: . This chapter will be kind of a combined epilogue at the beginning.

Apocalypse…

Extinction…

Revenge…

Salvation…

After their ordeal in Siberia the group hadn't seen neither hide nor hair of Umbrella, it was almost like they were scared of them for a change & it was a nice feeling. Life could finally move forward for a change, the tropical regions were in the best shape, having never been totally eviscerated in the first place due to the wet environment, so they headed towards the equator.

"I think we are all that's left. If there was anyone else, we would have seen them by now." Leon said. "Not counting Umbrella." Kmart said. "Always gotta be the buzz-kill, don't ya' kid?" Leon said teasingly. "Come on, we haven't heard from them in weeks, I think we've got them running scared!" Miranda said triumphantly. "Even if we don't, if they do come for us, we'll be ready… all of us." Alice said as Carlos enveloped her in a blanketing hug. "I'm sorry we can't be somewhere cooler, I know this humidity's a bitch." She said apologetically, Claire waved her off. "It's not that bad, besides, if we get too hot we can always cool off in the ocean." 'You guys are shitting yourselves if you think that Umbrella is done with you.' Rain said seriously. "I'd be foolish to think they were." Alice replied.

Revolution…

Somewhere deep in one of the last remaining Umbrella complexes, Voices echoed through the depressing, hollow corridors, talking rapidly as two scientists turned into one of the labs. "Do you think this'll work?" "It has to, it's our last option for taking control of the resistance movement." One of them said as he walked up to a water-like pod much like the ones that housed the clones of Alice. Inside was a small figure, the hair obstructed the face, it's unclear who it is, or if its even human. "Begin the purging process." The first scientist said as he turns to look at a cluster of monitors, which are measuring the vitals of the humanoid creature.

The creature sputters & coughs & drops to the floor in a heap as the protective bubble around them bursts, like a large artificial womb. One of the scientists gently places a towel around the shivering, gagging figure. "It's ok, I've got you, & you're safe now." He said as the small figure struggled in his arms like a trapped animal, unsure of where they were. "Vitals & heart rate are normal & her powers, they are growing at a geometric rate." The other scientist said as he studied the print outs. "Take her to her quarters where she can recover, then we'll go from there.

In the darkness of the jungle, Alice sat bolt upright, clutching her pistol & drenched in a cold sweat. She scanned the area, thanks to the T virus, her sharp eyes could pierce through even the darkest of nights. She had it again, that horrible feeling that something terrible was coming. A sound came from her left as Carlos stirred softly in his sleeping bag, he smiled benignly in his sleep as he turned over, his body now facing her. She smiled as she gently ran her hand through his tufty black hair. The night could hide nothing from her; her vision at night was almost as good as someone with night vision equipment, & on a night with good moonlight, she could almost see better then she could during the day & tonight… was a full moon.

Unable to get back to sleep, she decided to patrol the perimeter of camp. As she walked quietly past the sleeping forms of the survivors she had to smile as she passed Miranda & Michelle, Miranda had a protective arm around her little sister. It wasn't until she almost had made the entire round that she noticed that two sleeping bags were empty, her heart rate quickening, she drew her twin kukris & set off. As she prowled the jungle, her sharp hearing picked up something… & she has a funny feeling what it was as she drew closer to the disturbance, whose source was coming from a small clearing on a cliff overlooking the entire jungle. She raised her kukris, every muscle in her body was tensed & ready for battle. Then, she burst through the clearing.

"Hey!" She commanded.
