[center Verena closed her eyes tightly, pulling her knees to her chest and placing her hands over her head. She didn't see how they were going to survive this. Tears rolled down her cheeks as she curled up, as best she could at least, praying that her death would be quick and painless.]
[center Feeling the helicopter come to a stop, she slowly opened her eyes, lifting her head up just a little to see the others. She was surprised she was alive at all at the moment. But she had no what would be outside the helicopter once they got out. [b "Is...is anyone else okay?" she said softly, trying not to make too much noise.]
"We can't really do anything right now..." Takumi says. "Except trust that the pilots will get us out alive."
The helicopter makes heavy maneuvers as it flies away from the base. Just as it seems they're in the clear, a missile blows up near the back, hitting the tail and causes them to spin uncontrollably.
"We're dead...!" Emi exclaims. "There's nothing to save us now!"
"No, this can't be...!" Reiko says.
"We just have to hold on!" Takumi shouts. "Keep your head still and from hitting anything!"
The helicopter continues to spin as it descends and manages to crash on the Tachikawa Station. Miraculously, it wasn't a serious crash but a crash nonetheless.
[center Verena couldn't help but be angry. She hadn't known any of this when her parents had enrolled her into the school. They probably hadn't even known. And if they did...well, they would be getting an earful from her if she ever got to see them again. After she was done crying, of course.]
[center She gasped as she felt the helicopter move, their voices cutting through her thoughts. [b "What the hell?!"] Were they serious? There was no way...]
[center Looking around at everyone, she felt her stomach knot up. [b "What do we do?"]]
"I don't understand why you would make it a school either." Takumi says.
"Well... it was a way to provide the best schooling to as many as possible for free, and even teach survival capabilities just so everyone there could survive a doomsday scenario." Reiko explains. "Of course, students would have a choice of what wanted to do if that did happen once the school was fully finished but that never came to be..."
"Control, come in." Pilot 1 says. "Control, do you read me?"
"Wait... those aren't ours down there." Pilot 2 says. "Who are they?"
"Control, do you copy?!" Pilot 1 says. "I'm not getting a response!"
"Oh shit, one of them has an RPG!" Pilot 2 exclaims. "We have to-!"
A missile is fired at them and the helicopter manages to narrowly avoid it.
"Oh god, this can't be happening!" Emi says. "First zombies become real then a random group of people take over the military base for evacuation and are trying to kill us?!"
"Are they completely insane?!" Takumi questions.
[center Verena sat quietly in her seat, her hands folded in her lap as she stared at them. She simply couldn't comprehend the madness that was surrounding them. Everything had been fine that morning. So why now...]
[center She quickly wiped at her eyes, tears threatening to spill over again. She wasn't going to be a baby about this. It sucked, more than anything ever had in her life, but crying over it wasn't going to help them.]
[center Looking up at the nurse, she frowned. [b "Why not just make it a complete base? Why let kids attend? It sounds like a disaster waiting to happen."] Had it really been a good idea to send kids to a secret base? Especially without the students or parents knowledge?]
[center Maybe she didn't have a right to question it. She didn't know all of the details. But the thought still made her uneasy. Looking out the window, she she felt her stomach tighten. She wasn't sure she wanted to be surrounded by strangers. Especially with the worlds so unpredictable.]
"There's still military, surely they can contain this and scientists will band together to find a cure." Takumi responds. "There's no way this is the end..."
"Society was always just one calamity short of an apocalypse." Ryo says. "All we can do for now is wait on whatever happens next."
"Great pep talk there, Ryo." Madoka says. "You really understand how to lighten the mood."
"So um, they really are zombies?" Emi asks. "They come back to life just to eat people?"
"...Look, the last thing I remember hearing about this plague is that it has something to do with parasites." Reiko says. "If they are parasites then are something quite intelligent to take full control of organisms and my only theory of why they are eating people is because that's how they get their nutrients or energy."
"How do you know all of this?" Chou asks. "Where do you hear these things from, who is your friend who knows everything about this and are you really just a nurse at our school?"
"I guess there's no point holding back info now..." Reiko replies. "The school is- was actually a facility designed for safety against doomsday scenarios, that's why it's more advanced than most schools and happens to be free for anyone to attend."
"But that failed." Ryo says. "The most we got was an evacuation, not a full defense against this... chaos."
"We didn't realize how short on time we were, so it wasn't fully equipped with everything we needed through legal means." Reiko states. "We were supposed to get a whole security team at some point but that was debated on how it appears we're forming a private military for Japan."
They soon started nearing the airbase in the helicopter.
"We are approaching Yokota Air Base." Pilot 1 says into the mic on his headset. "Permission to land."
[center Slowly putting her phone away, she prayed that her call would be returned soon, only nodding at Ryo's words about it being her family. She wasn't sure what to do. She had no way of knowing if they were alive and safe.]
[center Looking out the window, her eyes widened at the scene down below. Was this some kind of prank that she didn't know about? Or maybe she was dreaming. A quick pinch to the arm tore that thought away.]
[center Hearing the word zombies, Verena began to laugh. [b "Are you listening to yourselves? Zombies? Are you serious?! That kind of thing only happens in the movies! Whatever this is, it can't be zombies!"] Tears began to roll down her cheeks as she looked at all of them, her voice finally breaking. [b "Right?"] There was no way the dead could come back to life. That type of thing was meant to be fake.]
[center However, a quick glance out the window proved otherwise. [b "This isn't the end, is it?"] She asked, looking at Takumi.]
"Hey, what's wrong?" Takumi asks.
"It could be her family..." Ryo says.
"...Some of the city is on fire." Madoka says.
"W-wait a second, what?!" Emi responds.
Takumi and Emi look out the helicopter's windows to see chaos all around the cities, including burning wrecks of vehicles on the streets.
"Everything will end okay, right?" Chou quietly asks. "The military and the police will sort everything out... and then everything will go back to normal..."
"I hope they aren't actual psychos out there who think they can do whatever they want during this... outbreak." Reiko says. "Those people attacked the school... they weren't alive."
"Wha... so you're saying they really were zombies?" Takumi asks.
"That's one word to describe them, yes." Reiko answers. "There's more to this illness than just coming back from the dead."
"What do you mean?" Ryo questions.
"I don't fully know but I know someone who does." Reiko responds. "I hope he makes it out okay, because he's one of the few who understand why this is happening."
[center Verena sat back in her chair, keeping her eyes shut tight for a moment. She could've gone her whole life without seeing what she had. But she couldn't deny that it had saved the nurses' life, so that was something.]
[center Accepting the fact that the image was forever burned in her mind, she looked back and forth between everyone, biting the inside of her cheek. She wasn't sure what she was going to do now. Everything was happening so fast...]
[center Glancing at Emi, she felt her stomach knot up. [b "I don't actually know. I haven't been here very long. There might be a friend or two..."] Her eyes suddenly widened and she pulled out her phone, tapping on it furiously. Without another word, she placed the phone to her ear, tears filling her eyes as the ringing stopped and went to voicemail.]
Takumi takes his katana and stabs the zombie in the head, killing it instantly and causing it to fall off. The nurse breathes heavily then gets inside the helicopter and shuts the door.
"Too close..." Takumi mutters.
"Ms. Wakai, are you alright?" Emi asks.
"I will be eventually... and call me Reiko now, since the school is..." The nurse answers.
"Where are we heading anyway?" Takumi asks.
"They're taking us to the Yokota Air Base in Fussa." Ryo answers. "It's supposedly safe there for the time being."
"I would hope so since it's an air force base." Madoka says.
"Oh wait... Verena, do you know if any of your friends made it out?" Takumi asks.
"I might know if they evacuated in the other helicopters if you tell me their names and describe them." Emi says. "I was at the roof in the first place before the evacuation was announced but I refused to go until the end."
[center Verena stumbled a little and gripped Takumi's arm, getting into the helicopter with his help. Seeing the relief on his friends' face made her feel a little bit happy for him, but he didn't notice that Madoka and Chou weren't there until he mentioned them.]
[center Her heart dropped a little at the thought of them making it. Sure, she didn't know them like he did, but she still didn't think they deserved to die here.]
[center Sighing, she reached over to help close the door when she heard the nurse's voice call out. Turning to the military man, she shook her head. [b "They can make it!"]]
[center She held her hand out to help them in, screaming as she saw the zombie latch onto the nurses' leg. Taking the short sword, she began hitting it in the face with the hilt of the short sword. [b "Let her go!"]]
"R-right!" Takumi replies and heads up to the roof.
One last helicopter was still waiting for survivors. A military man waves at them to get in. Takumi grabs Verena's arm and pulls her along quickly into the helicopter. He notices some of his other friends in the helicopter too, Emi and Ryo.
"Oh my god, you made it!" Emi says as she hugs Takumi. "I was worried you were gone..."
"You wouldn't happen to know if Chou and Madoka are fine, would you?" Takumi asks.
"I... I don't know..." Emi answers. "I haven't see them up here..."
"But that doesn't mean they won't make it out alive." Ryo says.
The military man from earlier gets in co pilot seat. "The principle is dead, we have to go now." He tells the pilot. "You four, close the doors."
Emi closes the door on one side while Ryo starts closing the door on the other.
"WAAAIIIIT!" A woman's voice is heard screaming.
Takumi looks over to the roof entrance and sees the nurse running with Chou and Madoka to the helicopter with a group of zombies right behind them.
"Hurry!" Emi yells out.
"We have get out of here, now!" The co-pilot exclaims.
Madoka jumps in with Chou and the nurse grabs onto the handles of the door just before the helicopter lifts off the ground. That's when a zombie manages to grab the nurse's leg and ends up hanging off the side of the helicopter.
[center Reaching the top of the staircase, she gasped, looking at him. They were never going to make it out of there. Spinning around, she quickly ran down the stairs, glancing at him. Perhaps he was right. They didn't know everything those crazies, which terrified her.]
[center Crying out in surprise, she stumbled a little and looked at the psychos behind them. Yep, she had been right. They were never going to make it out.]
[center Coming to a stop, she stared at the principal, her eyes widening. [i Oh God...] She placed a hand over her mouth, waiting for the worst. She was genuinely surprised to see that it hadn't happened.]
[center she looked at Takumi and nodded. She would've never expected it. At the principal's words, she nodded and tugged on Takumi's arm. [b "We have to go now."]]
Takumi runs further through the hall and up the staircase. When they reach an entrance to the roof, they see that it's been barricaded and they have to use the other staircase.
"Dammit... we have to go back down to the second floor and go all around to the other side." Takumi angrily yet quietly says then goes back down to the second floor. "They should have said which staircase to use but then again, maybe those psychos would listen too."
[i Though, I highly doubt that they have much intelligence, especially since they're attacking a school.] Takumi thinks to himself as he looks around the second floor hallway. [i I really can only come up with one word to call them... zombies.]
Takumi hurriedly makes his way to the other side of the school. A few [i zombies] crash through a classroom window and start chasing him. He dashes as fast as he can towards the other staircase and stops when he sees the principle walking past him and towards the zombies.
"H-hey, they're dangerous, Sir!" Takumi shouts.
The principle doesn't say anything and holds his cane out like a bat, with the handle being what hits. The moment a zombie comes near him, he hits them hard in the head a few times and then hits a few more before he then grabs the handle of his cane and pulls out a sword from it.
"Woah... who knew the principle was such a badass..." Takumi mutters.
"Don't just stand there, get up to the roof already!" The principle yells. "They're only going to wait a few more minutes before leaving!"
[center Verena smiled before turning to Madoka, nodding. [b "We'll see you up there,"] she said, hoping it was true. She hated to think that she wouldn't make it.]
[center Gripping the short sword in her hand, she followed behind Takumi, rushing after him at his signal. She kept looking around, worried that one of them was going to attack when they weren't paying attention.]
