"Damn it!" Kai cried out, throwing his back against the unforgiving hardness of the cold concrete wall. He immediately blocked out all semblance of pain and instinctively raised the two guns to shoulder-level.

He fired with the Ruger that he held with his left hand, the shot making a satisfying yet far too loud bang as it left its vessel. It flew through the air, over the shoulder of the young Anglina and embedded itself deep in the decaying flesh of yet another undead being that was attempting to follow them down into the Subway station.

Angelina spun round and planted another shot into the brain of the dying woman.

"Knock that off, Kai" she barked, "Your shots are too loud down here."

"Well, watch your own back then!" he replied, but secretly he knew she was right. Without taking his sights off of the young woman, he took a moment to check out his peripheral vision. Darkness. All around. Damn it!

"What is this hell you're leading us into now?" Lucy said, leaping off the stairs and landing besides him. She was only half-joking, he knew, but she was also right. What good would it do them escaping the coming darkness above ground, just to descend into even thicker darkness below ground.

She raised her Taurus revolver, keeping it trained on the top of the staircase where Angelina and Rick both stood, the prone body of Frank, the mysterious man they had recently encountered, lying at the feet of right.

"What should be do with this P O S?" Rick shouted over his shoulder to Kai. "I say we leave the waste of space up here to rot!"

Kai considered his options. Sure, Frank had just tried to kill him and certainly seemed like a shady character by Angelina's accounts, but morally, could he leave a man to this horde?

"Bring him, Rick. He could be useful. He could know a cure."

"There is no cure," Rick muttered. But he did as he was asked. Kai had saved all their lives over the course of the day, so he owed at least his respect. Slowly, but not carefully, he carried the body of Frank down into the darkness of the Subway station. He felt bad leaving Angelina to bring up the rear, but reassuringly shots kept firing out from both her and Lucy.

Rick had to smile. As terrifying as it was, fleeing for his life an all, it was certainly more exciting than doing paperwork all day. He decided he liked having Kai as a boss, even if he was a bit temperamental.

"Right," Kai began as Rick finsihed descending the stairs, "here's the plan. Rick, take these handcuffs and secure Frank to the bottom of that handrail over there. Then take whatever guns you have left, make sure they are fully loaded, and head back up the stairs to cover Angelina. I want you both to make sure no zombie gets even one undead, disease-ridden foot onto my staircase. Understood?"

"Yeah, I guess so."

"Lucy, you take this torch and follow me. I'm going to go down and try to secure us an area, preferably with food and a map of this dungeon. Once we have succeeded, and scoped out the surrounding area, we will come back and rejoin you two before it gets too dark and we will seek refuge until the sun comes up again."

"I'm sorry, boss," Lucy smirked, "But that's too long. We'll be dead if we simply sit and wait for 8 hours."

"Fair enough," Kai sighed, feeling the weight of the past day weighing down on him fully for the first time, "Well we will at least make ourself as safe as possible until we can think of a better plan. Are we clear?"

"Yes!" they both exclaimed.

"Ok, Lucy, follow me."

Okay, if nobody is interested in this then it might as well get closed.
