Reaper while searching for the power generator, hears footsteps approaching from behind him. ("Oh great") with a swift movement he spins around and aims his gun at the target. What awaits him is a zombified clown. "Tch even this place cant be enjoyable" he squeezes the trigger firing off a shot hitting it in the head, and as a result, groans could be heard all around him ("Tch perfect")

Sway's thoughts was interrupted by the sound of a gunshot not too far from her. "I think we're having a crowd soon," she whispered to herself as she heads towards the source.


☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤

Mortis looked down at the blueprints lying spread across his table. “So this is what you were finagling about. I didn’t know that there are some people who are that enthusiastic about the future. Hmmm…” he casually rolls the papers back to its normal order, still waiting for a reply from the intruder.

“Y-y-you…” Hyde adjusts his glasses up trying to control his nervousness as he tries to cross his arms casually in turn, and tries again, “You did not tell us that there will be such projects waiting in the wings. I-I uhh… I don’t understand why we were not told of this in the meetings.”

“Tsk tsk tsk,” Mortis waves a finger back and forth to him while he sits on his chair, takes out a small mirror from his lapel and checks his hair, including his mustache, “You do know that eventually I will tell you and the others of these things.” He makes a small glance to Hyde through dark lenses, before he inspects himself back in the mirror, “Humans do not readily accept what’s probable and logical. They always think things as grotesque if it goes out of the ordinary. In science, that shouldn’t be the case. We push the boundaries because we believe that such discoveries will help society in the long run. And once proven, then will the rest of the world realize that what you’re doing is normal. Hmpf, we are the so-called freaks of nature to our families and friends, but that’s our occupation.” He sets aside the primping and with elbows on the armchair, he leans back to his chair and focuses on his hands as he meets the fingers together. Silence filled the room. An awkward and tensed up silence.

Hyde waits. His feet scream to head out the door not too far from him, his heart pounds in fear, while his mind argues to be rational in this situation. He clings to hope.

“Speaking of families, I heard that Shannon and the kids are happily enjoying their lives in one of the cozy towns of Colorado. Ever speak to them of late?”

His eyes bulged in surprise. “S-sir? You mean my wife a-a-and kids?”

His employer didn’t look up, but merely checks his shirt for any specks or wrinkles. “Who else was I referring to? Talking nonsense is a waste of time for me although, I have to bear saying ‘em to be polite.”

“I talk to them occasionally, yes sir.” Hyde focuses his eyes on the ground, wondering why Mortis choose to talk of this of all time. He is up to something. How did he know where my family lives?

Just before she reached even further, a group of performers suddenly rushed out of the buliding. "(Are those--?)" The painted faces turns around, the muscles in their faces moving sporadically. KSSSSSSSSSSSSS!! They attack, fangs bared.


☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤

With lips puckered to his nose, the man makes a big inhale. “You can never tell, doctor. Nowadays, you can never be too sure that your family would be safe, especially when they live far from you due to marital incompatibility.”

“What?” Hyde whispers as he looked up.

“Times like these that a person should be very careful about what he says and do towards others. I'm sure you'll agree with me on this.” Mortis’s eyes peeks above his dark glasses, as he lowers his head partially to look straight at the gaunt-faced man with specs.

“Are you….threatening me? My family?” He steps forward, “You plan to harm other people all for the sake of what I found? Information that I, as an employee of your firm, am entitled to?” His face in a snarl, “This is ridiculous. If you felt that you were wronged, deal with me, not with someone else. I’m not…” he shakes his head as he wave a hand on the air and turns for the door, “I’m not listening to this. You’ll be hearing from my lawyer.”

Before his hand turns the knob, Mortis answers. “Hmph. Those are some fighting words, doctor. I suggest you check again on what offense you have done me before you start calling for a recompense.” Hyde hears a slam on the table, which prompted him to turn. His eyes showed utmost fear and paranoia…. Right in the center of Mortis’s desk is his personal journal. No… oh dear god, no.

Before Reaper knew it, he spots figures from all sides "Ok guys, lets dance" he holsters his pistol and pulls out the m16 and cocks it and opens fire moving in a circle as he does so, bullets piercing all sorts of body parts and a few pierced the tents walls as well ("Better watch my aim, but what about the others? are they alright?")

"You picked the wrong time to go after me," Sway mutters while her lower lip still bled. With both her katanas unsheathed, she went on the attack.

KSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS-SHAAAAAAAAAA!!... She ducks as a clown tries to grab her with both arms, and she counters with a slash through its stomach.... She sidesteps.. runs to a wall, and with a backflip lands both feet on a clown's shoulders, before she beheads it.

“One moral lesson to be learned,” Mortis crosses his arms, his face stern. “If you want to divulge secrets and personal feelings to any matter… make sure you keep that proof stashed away.” Before Hyde can plant his hand to his own journal, Mortis snatches it away and opens through it. “I really haven’t read all the things contained here, but there sure are interesting excerpts that cannot be shared to outside eyes and ears. Hmmm… even those that I mentioned in the meeting that I emphasized to not be shared by anyone, neither by mouth or by paper, its allllll in here,” he claps the journal shut and continues, “…all in paper.” He gives his employee a smile so wide, that the doctor ends up backing a step, beads of sweat literally escaping his forehead.

How can I be so reckless? I never realized I could be that tired from working that I’d leave the very object my soul has leaned to. How could be I such a dunce? In a lowered but shaky voice, he replied back, “Th-Th-This is just a misunderstanding, sir. If-If you want, we can mayhaps negotiate on something here. We don’t need to drag this out into court, w-we can sort this out fairly easy. Its.. I-I-It’s the stress that may have pushed me to have such an outlet, but its merely a writing for myself. I don’t have any intention to share this with others. I am being upfront with you on this.”

“Ah, just for yourself. And that is why it ended on my hands. Well, isn’t that nice.” The wide smile remains affixed on his face, while the man before him looked down on the floor out of nervousness. With a small scratch on the back of his neck, Mortis continues, “I tell you what. Why don’t we fix a small deal between us two men, hmm? You agree to this deal, then all your worries about my counter-suing you or even your personal paranoia about your loved ones will all go away. How about it?”

The anxiety and the guilt imposed twice to himself, had given the doctor no other choice but to nod.

"Flames?" Grim says noticing the burning door. "Great and i finally thought we were going to have some peace, so how do we get out of this place?" Miku says tiredly. "Easy, If it was smart it would know that this won't kill us so easily soooo" Grim says as he puts the tank of gas on the ground and pulls out a pistol. "Your not planing to do what I think your doing right?" Miku says backing up, worried about what Grim was about to do. "Oh, I'm doing it, since i really don't have much use for this thing anyway" Grim says as he kicks hard on the tank, sending it flying toward the door then shooting it as soon as it reached the door. The tank explodes, blasting the door down along with parts of the surrounding wall. The zombie falls down to the ground due to the explosion, except for a few shards of wood piercing his body, its mostly unharmed.

"HAHHHHH!!!!" ... SHWIIICK!... a stab.... a double slash on another enemy, dismembering its legs.... "HAHH!... HAHHH!.... HAHHHHH!!!" Sway never felt such anger in her life. The fire that now dwells in her heart... the pain... the feeling of being betrayed. Each attack was double the force than necessary, but that passion is simply too great to ignore.

☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤

“What will you have me do?” Hyde’s voice was but a hoarse whisper.

“Wow. You make it sound as if I’ll be asking you to kill somebody.” Mortis chuckled as he stood up and pats the doctor’s shoulder. “It is but a simple matter really.” With a smile, he adds, “All you need to do is hmmmm… let’s just say, I need you to keep an eye on my employees, particularly that couple you work closely with, Emma and Derrence. And, that’s it.”

His face in confusion, Hyde replies back with a question, ”Uhmm… h-hold on. Why would I be doing that? I thought Daegan does that for you?”

“Ah Daegan, yes.” The man leaves and faces the window, hands clasped behind him. “He have other things to tend to, especially with the military base we’re creating.” He makes a momentary turn to Hyde, “I’m sure you know what I’m talking about, don’t you? Ah, yes, yes.” He grins and looks back out the window, just as the doctor turns red from embarrassment. “Besides, I know that a lot of people find that man intimidating. Doesn’t talk that much, can’t even crack a smile. Just having him stand over some employee would have them bundled up in a knot instantly. And we don’t want that at all, nuh-uh, no. Not what I have in mind at this moment.”

Is this man for real? Am I hearing this right? “In other words, you want me to spy on my people. My own colleagues.” He can only look at his employer’s back dumbfoundedly.

From a lighthearted chuckle, Mortis’s voice becomes low and somber, “Do you honestly believe that I landed into this Tricell position by trusting everyone around me? I may deal in science, Dr. Hyde, but I am also a businessman. I not only tend to this branch, but I have my own transactions overseas and projects that had me shaking hands with prominent figures wherever I go. Even if I have people who tend to my needs, I am not dimwitted.” He nods as he continues on, “I know there are things going on amongst my employees. I am very aware of what goes on, including the personal lives that they withheld, and most importantly, my instincts know when someone has been plotting things behind my back. “

Mortis turns around, and with both hands on his desk, he leans forward with an ultimatum “You wanted things settled between us? Then I am giving you this chance. I never said this is an easy deal considering what you have wrought, but I will be very direct with you, if that’s your wish. “ his eyes hardened, “You need not check up on any of your people. Just Derrence…. and Emma. Anything out of the ordinary, you’ll report it to me. Fail this, and I will see to it that every possible nightmare in that head of yours becomes real… including your family.”

A sword thrown straight at a clown's head, piercing it past his skull.... a stab to the gut on the one behind her.... a kick on a mutant's face that failed but partially, as she uses that hold to spin and use her free foot to kick its skull. Sway retrieves her katana from the fallen clown and sheathes them both as she rushes to a pole nearby and uses it to rotate her body sideways, smacking the enemies that surround her in all directions.

Hyde stands outside the office door… heart and mind in conflict… dedication against self-preservation.

I can’t believe this. I am being asked to betray the only family I have here in Badger City. And yet, there’s also my own flesh and blood whom I should be protecting beyond anyone else. What am I to do? And way worse, he has my journal. There were things I wrote there. Things he shouldn’t discover.

Like an echo that won’t go away, he remembered how he made that final plea for his book.

“If I may have it back, sir.”

Mortis looked up feigning cluelessness, “Have what back?”

“M-my journal. We have already settled things between us, so I don’t think there’s any reason retaining it.”

“On the contrary, I need this kept close. What guarantees do I have that you will stick to your word, mm?” he takes the journal, tucks it in, along with the rest of his paperwork on the left drawer, and locks it. “Unfortunately, we are doing this by verbal agreement, nothing to sign down a dotted line. Nothing personal, doctor.” He grins, “I look forward to hearing from you real soon. And I think you know how to show yourself out, so if you don’t mind, I have other concerns to cater to.”


His hands are still shaking just thinking it as he lifts it and looks upon it with fearful eyes. He runs his hand through his hair hoping that would mitigate his frustration when a voice calls out from behind him.

After breaking up the crowd a bit, Reaper takes advantage of an opening and runs past the horde towards the ferris wheel, shooting any clowns that got near him and activates the switch causing the wheel to turn slowly ("Good now to get on") he bashes a clowns head with the butt of the m16 and jumps into a seat riding it up to the top where it stops for a moment ("Good I can see everything from up here, now wheres that generator?") He surveys the area and spots a building towards the back ("Thats probably it") he glances down at the zombies and spots a figure hacking and slashing her way thru an entire crowd ("Is that Sway?") he aims his gun and sets it to semi auto fire and takes aim and.. POW shoots a zombie right between the eyes that was approaching from her rear. "One down" he takes aim again.

One after another, the clowns that surround her flops down. Each gunshot she hears subtracts another from her crowd of enemies. She nods as she sees the source and continues her plowing through the group.

MEEP MEEEEEEP!!!.... Sway turned, wondering how an infected one would drive a vehicle.... She lifts an eyebrow when she saw just a clown squeezing a horn, running towards her. She swerves away... and the clown did the same as he did a U-turn, still pretending that its riding something. Sway simply stood where she was, and as the clown came closer, she made a last-minute side flip and a double cut across its neck from behind.... its head rolls down, while the body makes a last MEEP MEE-eee...

Sway stared at it for a mere minute and heard a commotion inside a huge booth. Without hesitation, she rushes past the entrance arc.... and into the Hall of Mirrors.

“Hey, is everything alright?” It was Derrence.

“Y-yes yes, I’m okay. Just feeling ill, I suppose, heh heh heh.”

“Are you sure?” his colleague raises an eyebrow as he switches his gaze from Hyde to the office door behind him and back.

“Huh?” the doctor caught the shifting gaze and answers back, “Oh no, no. I just am really ill. I was just in there actually, hoping to get some days off. Been so tired from all these testings.” He releases a sigh and a weak smile, “I guess that’s not going to happen anytime soon, huh?”

Derrence laughs and pats his shoulder, “Heh heh, don’t count on it, bud. When we’re this close to a deadline? Hah, forget about asking for a vacay. Our head honcho wants this done right or he’ll get low pay. And low pay, as he’ll repeatedly tell people, means a much lower pay for us. Heh, you should know that guy by now.” He chuckles as he makes a small elbow on Hyde’s side.

“Ah hah hah uhm yes yes ehrm… stupid of me to even ask, aheh heh heh err heh,” Hyde rubs the back of his neck while a small bead of sweat trickled down from his brow to the side of his neck.

His colleague suddenly looks around and when he finds there’s no one in the hallway but them, he pulls Hyde away from the office door and into the opposite side of the wall. “Will you still be interested in helping us formulate that serum? I know that you said yes before, but we want to make sure that we’re not coercing you in any way. Besides, this won’t be tested until we’re really sure that the final product of the virus is realized. So, you still want in?”

Grim and Miku steps out of the burning building to see the burning zombie on the ground. "That was pretty, its all ready dead" Miku said slightly relieved about the situation. "Miku get away from here" Grim says aiming the pistol at the zombie. "Why?" Miku asked. The zombie now slowly gets up onto its feet. "How is it moving isn't it dead?" Miku asked now scared. "There is no way for a zombie to burn anything on its own intentionally, in simpler words, I found a interesting subject out in this waste of space" Grim says grinning widely now. The zombie now quickly moved toward Grim and Miku, moving at a speed that was extremely unnatural for a zombie. When it got too close, Grim kicked with square on the chest, sending it flying a few feet away, however Grim falls over due to not fully recovering from the side effects of the injection he took not too long ago. "Are you ok?" Miku asked as she quickly helped him up onto his feet. "Yea, other than the fact that my body isn't as strong nor fast as it was before,I'm fine" Grim says looking at his now slightly burned leg and back onto the zombie. "Ok, good" Miku says helping Grim get away from the zombie. "We need to gain som distance from that thing, it moves too fast for us to avoid and the flames make it difficult to fight up close" Grim says limping away as the zombie slowly got back onto its feet.

The racket inside has stopped just as Sway reached halfway down the path...... RUWAHHHHHHH .... NGHHHHHHH....... SSSSSSSS..... She hears them, but all she sees is her image. Its when she truly looked at herself, did she realize how angry she was. Her eyes... her tightened cheeks... her burrowed brows... even her stance alone. RAAAA RAAAA GRAAAAAAAA.....

☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤☤

The doctor smiles back, “O-Of course. I still want to. Just let me know when we’ll be starting and I’ll meet you here on that date.”

Derrence lets out a sigh of relief, “Oh good good then. I’m glad you’re with us on this.”

“Are you two talking behind my back now?” A female voice chimes in from behind them. The two men turned to see Emma, her labcoat slung on her arm, and a smile on her face. She leans and kisses Derrence on the lips and asks, “Ready to go, darling?”

The man blushes as he realized Hyde standing there, witnessing the small gesture of affection, “Ehrm, heh heh sure. I’ve been born ready.”

They both turned to the doctor, just as Emma prompted, “Hyde? You’re joining us for dinner, right? I have roast waiting for us at home and it can serve for three. What you say? I’m sure our daughter will be glad to see you there as well.”

With a shake of his head and a chuckle, Hyde replied, “Sorry guys. I’ll have to pass on this one. I’m not feeling well at all. Its rest, is what I need. “

“Awww, Hyde. Derrence darling, I think he’s being bashful again. Please tell him that he can come. Mmmm?” Emma looks up at her husband in a pout.

“You’re being silly. Why you asking me that when he’s right there? And he’s not kidding around about being ill. Let’s give the man a break, shall we?” Derrence, despite his embarrassment, has that loving glow for his wife and child, regardless of how much he would like to keep a straight face. “We’ll respect your decision. Meet you here tomorrow then, bud. And thanks for aiding us on that ‘thing’ we’re about to do.”

“Not a problem.” Hyde nods to them. “Now go, you two. I just need to clean up my workstation and will be heading soon. Goodnight.”

And as the couple waved back and left through the side exit, the doctor could only stand there, feet grounded to the floor, head bowed in thought.
