Continuing

“We gotta go!  There is a military force on the way, a half-dozen choppers with orders to fire on the roof!” the pilot shouted.

“Well, I suggest you call them off!” Rikki shouted back at the pilot.  “Or there will be no blood sample!”

“We can’t save her!” the officer onboard shouted.  “If we could, we would!”

Chapter Twenty-Six: Lambs to the Slaughter

Monday, 7:15pm

Doctor Glen had been busy since he ran into Rikki and the girls in that stairwell.  And after seeing they weren’t any real threat, he went back to focusing on his primary plan.

Though infected, the zombie doctor knew, as well as Rikki did, the CDC wasn’t going to save him.  Though he understood the CDC was trying to save many more lives than just the few in the hospital by preventing an outbreak, he – along with Rikki and those girls – weren’t going to give up on their own lives.  For him, it was different, however.  With the virus already inside him, he would be killed without hope of help.  Rikki and the girls still had a chance.  But what they saw as evilness within him was really just his own attempt to survive.

Chapter Twenty-Three:
Whispers in the Pharmacy

Monday, 6:45pm

It had been a little more than an hour that Georgia, Lorna and Iris had held up in the pharmacy.  Nothing had happened in the nearby area in a while and after the zombies wandered away from the gift shoppe, that end of the first floor got really quiet … quiet enough, in fact, for the girls to take naps in shifts.  And though their naps were short, they were beneficial bits of rest – the girls feeling much better afterwards.

“I don’t suppose we could just stay here and hope that the good guys outside will change their minds and come in and rescue us,” Iris whispered jokingly as she leaned back against the counter they were hiding behind.  “That would be too much to ask for.”

“Yeah.  That’s like an unrealistic dream,” Georgia whispered, putting her arm around Iris and leaning the girl’s head on her shoulder – knowing that Iris was moments away from breaking down again.  “The good guys rescuing us is as likely as finding a guy who doesn’t find the necessity to man-splain everything like we’re stupid and can’t figure things out for ourselves, only then to get butt-hurt when we tell him we already understand whatever it is he is fumbling to try to say.”

Iris snorted with laughter, then covering her mouth and nose to prevent from making further noise.

Chapter Twenty: The Gravest Expense

Monday, 6:15pm

Britney crashed into the front of Chloe, gripping her up by the hair and pushing her back against the walls.

“Run!” Britney screamed down to Rikki, Angelina and Brook.

But running was the one thing they couldn’t do.  Angelina had landed on her right wrist and wasn’t able to scoop Brook up onto her back.  So Brook got up onto her one good foot and held the center railing as she started hopping down the steps, one at a time.  Rikki helped Angelina to her feet, guiding her down the staircase as Angelina held her wrist – feeling quite a bit of excruciating pain.

Chloe put a knee up between Britney’s legs.  Though padded and wearing a diaper, Britney still felt pain from the contact to her groin.  Chloe grabbed the hair on the top of Britney’s head and leaned in to bite her scalp.  But Britney twisted herself around, facing away from Chloe before bending forward and sending Chloe over top of her.  Chloe tumbled down the first half-flight of stairs, then slammed into the wall – taking a few moments to get to her feet and regain her bearings.

Britney looked down at her, still seeing the sorority sister who had taught her so much in such a short amount of time.  Then she had a flashback to Saturday morning at the campground when Chloe laid her down to change her diaper.

… you are a natural leader.  And I can see that, at some point in your life, you will prove this to yourself,” Britney recalled Chloe saying to her – one of many self-esteem boosting remarks received from Chloe.

Chapter Seventeen: In a Word …

Monday, 5:30pm

Lights fired up on the camera of a local television station, shining on a new reporter who stood with the hospital in the background.  The descent of the sun into dimmer evening light had begun.

“Good evening,” the news reporter said, holding a microphone up to her mouth.  “This is Kate Gotwals, reporting to you live from outside Harris Regional Hospital, a medical facility that, until earlier today, had been a place where lives were saved and where the preservation of all who came here for treatment was the primary mission.  But that mission changed this morning when several dozen college-aged females were admitted here, being transported to this hospital from a retreat location – a joint effort from several medical and emergency response teams to get them here in a caravan that numbered at least 20 ambulances, eyewitnesses say.  Details are still sketchy, but it is believed that some of the girls may have been infected with a virus feared to be highly contagious.  And a lot has happened here since they arrived.”

Chapter Fourteen: Got Milk?

Monday, 4:45pm

Rikki and the girls sat in the hospital kitchen, lounging on counters and laying on tables as they chowed down on the food and chugged fluid as if their bodies were absent of all liquid.  Yes, they were still on high-alert and paying attention, but it felt good to fully relax for a little while.  And besides, they really had nowhere else to go.

“I didn’t realize how thirsty I was,” Lorna said, sipping from a bottle of water.  “I’m gonna get water-logged like this.”

“Okay … just so I’m right about this … we are still in a hospital, in the food court with deadly zombies all over the place, right?” Brook asked, munching on a chicken salad wrap – Rikki and all the other girls turning and looking at her as she sounded like she was going crazy.  “Hey, I’m just making sure that’s the case.  I was actually hoping that after I ate something that all of this would wind up being hunger hallucinations.  But it doesn’t look like that’s how it’s gonna work out.”

Chapter Eleven: Upping the Ante

Monday, 3:30pm

“Alright, we won’t be long in here,” Rikki said, walking up to another set of double doors.  “Those creatures are headed this way.”

“How do you know that?” Brook asked from Angelina’s back.

“The doors haven’t been knocked down yet, Sweetie,” Angelina answered.  “So, the zombies haven’t been here yet, but they will be.  They’re knocking down every door they come to.  It makes sense.”

Rikki stuck her key into the door and then slid her ID through the scanner, a double layer of security – implemented whenever a hospital lock down happened.  And it was especially important in this instance as they were entering the maternity ward.
