Zoe watched as Luna ended the dead's life, but as it went down she noticed the other girl going down with it. Taking a step forward she was soon met with Luna falling into her and her falling back with the other atop of her, a soft grunt escaped her lips on impacting the floor. She went to say something of a congrats, but with the laughter escaping the lighter girl's mouth she just shook her head and patted the other on the head. "Congrats, now we gotta clean out this place" she chuckled a little pushing the lighter girl off her just enough to slide out from under her.

Moving to stand up she figured that if the two worked together they could have all the bodies cleared in a few hours, with the big guy going to take most of their time.

Luna managed to stop the fit of laughter after her new friend pushed her off lightly enough to escape. She honestly wasn't sure what was going on with her at the moment but then again it wasn't like she was sane to begin with. For a few seconds the albino sat there, stifling a small giggle or two that tried to escape from her lips. Normally not talking or threatening people it felt very odd to be acting in this kind of matter." Clean right. Gather normal dead at stairs. Then carry up. Sound good?" Luna spoke with a lighter tone to her voice after the little fit of odd laughter. She was...happy in a way the two of them made it out alive and cleaned this place out without much of an issue. The stinging in her neck and arm came back reminding her of the damn wound she got. Pulling rags and torn pieces of fabric she managed to atleast cover the wound on her arm and pressed a cloth to her neck until it stopped bleeding. With that done she pulled the spear from the body of the giant, using the undead to wipe the blood off.

While that was going on she followed Zoe back towards the main bunk room and looked around the room. At once she began dragging whatever undead body she found towards the stairs and broken door. She doubted her own strength in being able to carry these things up the stairs alone at least. Together they'd fair better. The big guy was going to be left in the hallway for now, no point in wearing themselves out on the first one." Not hurt? Thanks for help. Nice have someone rely on." Her words with simple but the tone conveyed enough to show she was grateful in the help of clearing this place out. This station would make a great place to stay once it was clean and supplies were moved here. It was a lot of space for the two of them...oddly she found herself kinda hoping they weren't the last two alive.

" Once bodies out. What want do? Rest or return my place to bring supplies later?" Luna asked as she started to drag the body of female rookie cop towards the stairs. They already managed to drag a couple bodies over there, even a few that were there before them. Just how many corpses were in this basement? Then they had to find the keys to get the ones trapped in the cell, the keys would come in handy while dealing with the rest of this place.

"Well..." Zoe thought about it for a moment, once they were done she figured that'd go back to her place and rest up for a while but the fact that they had showers did sound nice to her. Walking back into the main area and searching the bodies of the officers she found the keys to the cells and opened the cell door to the four men left to rot, "we clean out everything and then head out to rest before moving here I guess" she nods with a small smile. It was odd to feel like this after everything that she had gone through within the past year or so, the memories caused a small frown to cross her face as she squats down and slowly lifts the older officer up on her shoulder in a fireman carry and begins to walk the dead body up the stairs.

The pure dead weight was hell, but she had gone through a lot worse. As she continued to work she let herself get lost in a memory, her body going on auto-pilot.

Jess and Adam loaded up the helicopter, Zoe being to busy looking over the contents of her bag again. The three had long since said their goodbyes to everyone in the base, but with the horde coming Zoe knew that it was best to leave. Adam had said that he'd attempt to help lesson the horde that would come by flying over and hopefully lead them away somewhat.

"Having fun, babe?" Jess calls out over her shoulder as she loads up a bag with duct tape on it for a label, the label saying that the contents was ammo

"Yeah just making sure I grabbed everything" Zoe gave the older of the two a smile. Once she was done she began to push everything back in her bag before joining the two. The helicopter seemed to be ready, all save for Adam filling up the copter with fuel.

"So you ready to do this?" Jess ask leaning on the side of the copter and crossing her arms.

"Yeah I mean I'm nervous and all, but as long as you're there...it'll be okay" Zoe smiles tossing her bag on the copter. As the two continue to talk and Adam continues to fuel up life seemed to be just great for the makeshift family of three, however, things never seem to last as all of a sudden the alarm beings to blare as an explosion comes from the base.

"Fuck...Zoe and I got this Adam you keep fueling" Jess says pulling out a pistol and running to the base, Zoe just behind her.

Screams and groans could be heard all around as they neared the base, there appeared to be a large gap in the fence and pouring through it was the dead, dozens of them. Jess began to fire into the crowd to keep the dead from going inside, "Zoe go find survivors...I'll stay" she nods.

Zoe takes off into the building, unknown to her that would be the last she'd see her again.


Snapping back to reality as she trips over with the dead body she'd been carrying fall atop her. "Fuck" she let out a gasp and attempted to push the dead body off her, but for some reason her legs and arms felt tired. Looking forward she understood why, there ahead of her laid five bodies. She had pushed herself during the memory and now she laid under a dead body.

Luna nodded in agreement with Zoe as she hurried along dragging a body down the halls. She didn't have the upper body strength like Zoe who was just carrying them on her shoulders and such. It was impressive and quite a sight for her. She even dared try it but could barely get the body off the ground. That's what she gets for focusing her muscles on her legs instead of her arms and such. It took a good while to start stacking a good number of them up but with two of them doing the work it didn't as long. The albino did seem a little worried with the trance like gaze her friend had but didn't want to bother her so she didn't say anything. Luna had just started dragging the bodies up as Zoe pulled the last one over toward the pile.

From the top of the stairs a crashing sound followed by a gasp carried up the steps. The younger girl rushed down leaving the body she'd been dragging where it was. It was safe to say she was worried about her new companion, the human contact was nice after such a long time. She could do without the way her body would heat up and she'd get so nervous." Careful, here help" Luna spoke simply with a voice full of worry as she shoved the body off the other girl. The corpse rolled onto its back as the other girl was freed from being trapped underneath. Of course with the way she was being put into over drive the young albino looked over her companion." Zoe..hurt need rest bit? Beds showers...could clean up and rest? No...want you to hurt yourself." Luna had difficulty finding the words she wanted to use which only made the panic on her face more evident.

Luna was quick to help Zoe and as the body was off her she let out a huff and smirked, "thanks and no I'm fine...just lost myself in a memory is all" she nods and moves to stand but winces a little as she puts pressure on her right ankle. It felt sprained, "dammit" she shook her head and limped over to the stairs and sat down for a moment. Pulling up her pants leg and taking off her shoe and sock she felt relief, but looking at the ankle there looked to be slightly red, maybe the start of a bruise. She shook her head and looked up to Luna with a chuckle, "I guess you win...I'll rest here if you head to your stuff and my pack...but first" she slowly stands and limps over to the body that landed on her a few moments ago.

Pulling out her knife and cutting open the stomach of the dead she looks over at Luna, "before you go out cover yourself in the blood and guts off this thing so you'll be able to walk the street and not get noticed by them" she nods sitting back away from the dead body. The smell was something she was used to by now, but for someone who's never done it before she knew how awful it smelt inside the bodies of the dead.

Luna still looked oddly concerned and worried as her eyes scanned over her friend a great numbers of times. Even though she said she was fine the smaller albino wasn't going to take that answer. Her worries has merit as Zoe tried to stand and the older girl winced, muttering something as she tried to walk. The younger girl moved to stand support Zoe but the other girl had already made it to the stairs by the time she got up. The look of worry and concern grew a little worse at the sight of her friends sprained ankle. Hearing the girl chuckle did set Luna at ease a little and the heat in cheeks grew as she realised how silly her worry looked. Those silver eyes stayed glued to her leg and injury though wanting to do something to help her friend out.

She was nodding to what Zoe was saying until the girl stood up and walked towards the body that fell on her. It was a gruesome sight to watch her cut the thing open, it's rotted internal organs spilling out. The smell was gods awful and the smaller albino turned to the side trying to keep what little food she had down. She'd gotten used to Zoe wearing the smell but the fresh stench of the sickly sweet insides was another thing entirely. Lu looked over back towards Zoe, her leg, and then back to the undead fella on the ground with his belly open. Slowly, with her head turned away she pulled and smeared the blood on her hands only to start wiping it on her own body. The feeling was just utterly disgusting and she swore she was going to be sick in a few moments.

Her one free hand snapped into Zoe's as a memory came back to her. The sickly stench was just like that of the pits she'd been trapped in at one time.

The bodies of the undead littered the small enclosed space that was so dark. The men had trapped Luna in her after they forced her to fight the last round. They always said the next fight was the last but they just enjoyed watching her squirm. She was there entertainment after all, why would they give that up huh? The small albino child was sitting in a corner repeatedly trying to throw up at the stench of the room. Hown long had these corpses been in here rotting away? That didn't matter, Lu pulled her legs up to her chest crying at the stench and what these men were forcing her to do.

To them she was an animal, not a child but an animal forced to fight animal for amusement. She wasn't a living creature just meat for the slaughter house of fun. The small girl wrapped her arms around her knees and pulled them so tightly to her chest it hurt." Hey little whore your next fight is up! Get going or its back to the fun room with you." Said a man that appeared in a blinding light as he opened a hatch and then the door to the arena opened.


Luna had a thousand yard stare as the stench of the blood and guts on her body reminded her of those pits. She had been doing so well for so long and to think something so simple could send her back to that place. Her hand gripped Zoe's tightly as small tears trickled down her pale but grimy cheeks. The look of pure terror were in those distant eyes and she was trapped back in the dark space again.

Zoe watched the other girl in slight amusement as she looked to puke at the smell, she remembered the first time she had to do it personally and remembering the fact that she puked everything she had out; however, the moment her hand was gripped by the other she looked up in confusion. The other girl had a death stare in her eyes and she felt like she was shaking, Zoe was going to say something when the other girl broke out in tears and terror filled her face.

"Hey...Luna...Luna it's okay" she says softly and pulled the other girl close wrapping her in a light hug and rubbing her back, "hey it's okay relax you're in a safe place" she says softly. Concern filled her as the other girl cried on her, but just in case she was ready incase the other girl were to have a bad memory that she would lash out believing herself to be back in the memory. Zoe knew it all to well, losing yourself to a memory and lashing out could be deadly but even if the other girl would do so she believed that she could pin her to the ground and try to snap her out of it.

It took a moment but a voice reached in from the darkest parts of her mind and she followed it until the scene was different. She blinked a few tears away as she found herself being held by someone tightly. The animal side of her kicked in and she started to squirm and move free to attack this person. A low growl escaped her lips as she turned to attack mode the animal those men turned her into taking over for a moment. It was a fee moments where she was trapped like that but her body didn't have the proper strength to break free. Soon enough she was pinned and the face she was expecting wasn't there? Luna had been trapped in a memory where she'd refused to fight...as a result the men did bad things..The face she saw wasn't one of the men holding her down but a face filled with worry and concern.

A couple slow deep breaths escaped her lips as Zoe spoke those calming words and rubbed her back. This time she leaned into the woman willingly cursing herself for turning to the animal she hated so much. The tears flowed for a few moments as the words were gone and she had to chase and find them again." Luna...no want be back cage...no want be animal...Luna want be human..don't let bad men...send Luna into cage..no want fight for crowd.." The words were mumbles but they came out slowly as Luna tried to remember how to speak again. Her cheeks were heating up as her consciousness was coming back and she realised what was happening. She was being held tightly by Zoe...simply thinking that made her heat up. What was this girl to her? Why did she act this way? Why did her heart beat so fast..?

Like clock work the thinner girl began to struggle and without a word Zoe quickly grabbed at the girls wrist and pinned her to the ground, and for added measure she sits on the girl with her legs on either side of the others waist. "Hey...Luna...Luna snap out of it" she says aloud, but stops as the other girl speaks, her words gave her cause of concern as well as hurt. Someone had treated her like an animal, a child growing up in hell and you further hurt her by treating her like a an animal. "Hey it's okay...you're safe I promise" she says and moves to sit next to the other girl and give her a soft smile, "No worries okay...I'll keep ya safe" she nods looking back to the cut open body ahead of them.

"How about we go shower and wash our clothes and get some rest...we can raid the second floor vending machine for something to eat and drink after" she says softly and moves to stand up, wincing a little as she does. Luckily instead of pain it's more of a numbing feeling coming from her ankle, she'd raid the evidence room to find some herbal leafs that she could smoke to help with the pain later if anything.

Despite some of her consciousness coming back she still felt the fear and worry about being turned back into an animal. She worked so hard since she'd been freed to be a human again, learning to speak and read all on her own. Those things had been useless in the pit ask she forgot them..in the pit you had to fight for your life. Afterwards you were crowded and treated like an animal in a bull show or something. Starved and told if you fought well enough you might get some food. Simply thinking about it had the albino trembling as she soon heard the soothing voice of Zoe. Well it was soothing to her at the moment as it felt like her ears were ringing from a crowd screaming. Her silver eyes were fixated on Zoe as she spoke wanting to believe those words. Her words made the tears stop but kept her cheeks burning. She was glad to meet Zoe, another human was nice, especially one so nice to her.

Slowly her body began to calm down just a little and she felt herself being in a bit more control. She was relying on her instincts to control her body like an animal did. Luna...She was Luna. No more crowds or bad men. No more dark room or red room. Luna was in control and she had Zoe by her side. Hearing the older girl's voice again made her worry a little as she remembered her injury from just a few moments ago. Slowly she stood and moved to Zoe's side offering either her spear as a walking stick or herself to help Zoe move." Sound good...Luna sorry...smell reminded...of...of Pitt...they kept her in..sent her bad place." Luna offered a bit of an explanation or the best she could as she moved closer to help Zoe back into the bunk room.
