# 64

We started climbing up the hill and being about as quiet as a group of people running for their lives in the cold could be when they were all equally out of breath, Linda was having a full blown asthma attack it seemed and Deb was redder than an Irish man on St. Patricks day. I was hobbling up behind everyone with my leg leaving a nice bread crumb like trail of blood. Leeya was just in front of me and was walking up the hill with such a relaxed posture it appeared she had just joined the group. We were all completeley wasted physically and she looked like she just started walking. Rusty was at the top of the hill now ahead of all of us and Fish was right behind him. They both stopped and stared at something as if they were in shock, I could hardly wait to see what it could be. Leeya stopped moving and I bumped into her while staring at my footing climbing up. "What's the matter baby you tired already?" I said to her as I regained my footing. She didn't say anything and started moving backwards brushing against me in the other direction this time. "What are you doing?" I asked "were going this way!" She looked at me for a moment then right back at the top of the hill. I wheeled my head around to see what was at the top of the hill and watched as Rusty , Fish and the girls were putting their guns down and their hands in the air. What the hell was up there?

I turned to look to Leeya and caught her in full sprint mode going down the hill. "Baby where the hell are you going?" I asked loudly so she could hear. Then I felt a sharp pain in my back and the feeling like I was hit with a stray foul ball. "What the hell?" I said out loud. In front of me Leeya looked back to me for a second then mouthed the words "I'm sorry" and disappeared behind a tree. I tried to turn around and see what the hell hit me and got kicked right in the face. That was all I remembered until I woke up.

I started to come to and looked around me. My knee was hurting so bad now I was probably awakened by it. The only thing that hurt as bad was my back in the right kidney area where the baseball type of pain was that slowed me down. I started to try and rub my head and realized my hands were behind me tied to whatever I was leaning against. I started to take a better look around and get my bearings. In front of me was what looked like fencing , almost like a dog kennel at the pound and to my side was another area where I could see Fish and Rusty. Across from us in the makeshift hall were Deb and Linda. I asked " Is everyone OK?" Fish cleared his throat and said "Yeah but any idea where your girl ran off to?" I thought for a minute then just muttered "NO" and started trying to move my wrists. "It's no use man I been trying for an hour we got tied up in cables, you'll just end up cutting yourself." I tried a bit more until I started cutting myself, shoot Fish was right. Deb called out"Why are we here ?why are you doing this to us? what do you want?" Her questions were unnoticed and I could here people talking just out of the doorway next to my "pen' I was tied up in. We were captured by someone and why is a better question. I yelled out " What the hell is going on give us some answers you dumb son of a bitches" I figured subtlety was best. It worked too , at the end of the room in the doorway a man appeared. He was dressed like someone who raided a camouflage store and wanted to look like Rambo only he wasn't pulling it off.

"Why don't you degenerates shut the hell up before I start putting my foot in your asses one by one". I looked to him and said " Sorry no disrespect intended sir, I was trying to just get someones attention I...." The man cut me off and said "Shut the hell up, do you think I don't know what blowing smoke up my ass feels like? Well I do. You people are trespassing on our land in the middle of world war 3 and want us to honor your every request? I will say it like this and only once , The next time you get my attention I will take a chunk out of your ass and hand it to you got it?" I looked to Fish and he was shaking his head no, so was Rusty but I had to try something, sitting in here waiting for whatever this moron was trying to do was no plan at all. "So what your highly educated camo wearing ass is saying is if I get your attention even one more time  that you will come in here and attempt to make me impressed with your lack of physical ability to even make me notice you throwing a stiff breeze at me?"

The man headed instantly for my cage and started to fish out the key to the lock. While he was doing this I was still trying to get my hands untied and managed with a great degree of pain to myself and fear as my motivation to get my right hand out and as soon as I did that my left hand with what tied them together still around it slipped out from the fence links behind me. The man came in and spit on my foot then kicked me in the knee that was dark and wet with blood. I said in a pained voice "you lean down to me and so much as smile I will rip it off your face". He looked astonished and then removed his hat and leaned down and said "you mean like this dead man?" I leaned in as if I was going to kiss him and said " yes just like that dummy" I swung my hands from behind me and grabbed his ears then pulled them down to my uplifting knee giving him what I always referred to as a stop sign. The crack of his mouth on my knee hurt me as well as some of his teeth dug in. He fell back almost instantly and I leaned into the fence behind me to help me get up to my feet.

"Now what was it you were gonna do to me again? What was it deadman?" I said as I skulked over to him . He held his hand out in a wait or no movement but I buried my good leg steel toe boot first right into his groin while he had his other hand holding his mouth together. The sheer force of it made him gurgle and cough and then proceed to throw up. From the looks of it he was eating well in this little area we were trapped in. Fish said loudly "Holy crap man get the keys quick." I reached down and the man made some effort to stop me. I grabbed his hair and did a wrestling version of the "bulldog" and rammed his head face first into the concrete. Instantly the fight was over as the man stopped moving all together. He was either knocked out or dead, either way I won and had the keys and looky here a new gun too. I made my way to the cages of the girls and unlocked them then untied them and then they helped me with the guys.

"What happened while I was out?" I asked the group. "They searched us all and started to talk about testing something on us." Deb said to me, "I could hear everything real good from where they had me tied up so I heard a lot of the plan". I looked at everyone "what plan?" Linda looked at me " They want to inject us with something and have a zombie bite us to see if we become one or were fine". "Are you kidding me ? What the hell is this redneck science lab time?" We needed to get out of their and fast. Rusty said there were about thirty of them and that the place was set up like a military base. Only he had not seen anyone who looked military. His thought was they took this place over when the military ditched it. I took the gun and started to move slowly to the end of the hall where the doorway was the man came from. "Shhhhh everyone stay back and be silent" I whispered. We made it to the door jam and I could see that from one side it was the end of the hall with nothing to it, I peeked to the other side and could see someone at the table just to the side of our hall and they were reading something. I swung around the doorway and aimed the gun at the mans face. "Move and I will end you" I said sternly. "Hands where I can see them and real slow" I ordered as I signaled for the group to follow me.

We took the man and I had Fish and Rusty tie him back to back to the man i had beat down and then gag them both. We locked them in the pen and started making our way down the hallway to see if we could get out of here. Fish had the new gun from the guard at the desk and I was already feeling better about our situation. We got to the end of the hall and the only place to go was through the door in front of us. I did my usual lean into the door as I pulled it to control its movement as slow as possible. At the first crack of it being open I could feel the air hit me, it was outside and that was OK by me. I looked into the distance and could see two men heading this way and they were carrying Leeya. I shut the door and yelled "everyone back in you cells and act like you tied up fast". We all ran back and I went into the cell I was in that now housed the two men and took the beret and coat from the man we got at the desk. I turned them so the man I knocked out or killed was in the corner and then ran back to the desk and acted like I was the man we had grabbed and faced my back to the door the men would be coming in from.

I heard the door open behind me and the cold air blast in. The men came behind me and I could hear Leeya's feet dragging. "Hey Jim got the last one and boy is she a fighter." I nodded and kept my face down. They moved past me and I got up behind them and followed them inside. One man turned to open Debs cage and said "Hey why is this one unlocked Jim?" He turned as he asked and looked at my gun. "You boys put her down gently and get in that cage right there  after putting your guns on the floor using only your index finger and thumbs, fist one to disobey me gets to look like the big dude with Jimbo over there" I pointed to the cage I was in. The men did what I asked and everyone got up and came over to help tie and gag them. "You wont survive out there" one of the men said. "Father Whitecross will find you and then youll wish you were bitten". I looked at Fish and we both smirked " Father Whitecross will get you and give you a wedgie" Fish said mimicking the mans voice. I smiled and said "they make too much noise" and slapped the guy in the face with the gun. We got up and I said to everyone "We have to get out of here and fast and not look back, whatever this father crap is lets be gone before it gets to us". Rusty helped me get Leeya up who was sporting a blackeye and split over the bridge of her nose.

"Which one of you hit her" I said to the men that dragged Leeya in. One man with his eyes signaled the other one was the culprit. I said "OK it was you hey tough guy ? well hitting a woman is about as bad as you can get so here is my response" I leaned back and kicked him in the face so hard with my steel toes that his nose was into the back of his head. He started to wiggle and spaz out like he was seizing. "Lets go" I said and walked to the door way.
