"We told them it would be ok..and we were so very wrong"

0 · 187 views · located in With the Survivors

a character in “The Walking Dead: Episode 1: Bad to Worse”, as played by fictiondoc

Description

AGE: 29

PERSONALITY: Kate is a very caring individual; she has a big heart and is always willing to offer a hand to those in need. She liked seeing people happy and always tries to have a smile on her face, but lately that has become more and more difficult with the changing world around her. It takes a lot to get her angry; she keeps a cool head in tense situations, something that came in handy when she was working on her internship in the E.R. When it comes to protecting herself or others she is hesitant, but put in the right situation and you harm someone she cares about the often quiet girl will act.

BACKGROUND: Kate is the middle child of four kids; a younger sister and older twin brothers. Her mother was a librarian and her father a mechanic, both did all they could to make sure all four kids had a bright future and experience as much as possible in life. Kate was a smart student, her grades were always above average, majority of her success in school was due to the fact that she always had her nose in a book as a child. High School came and she joined the track team, quickly realizing her love for running it became a hobby that she carried on into her adult life. She graduated third in her class and went off to college on a Athletic scholarship for cross country, at first she wanted to be a nurse, but the middle of her freshmen year her mother was diagnosed with brain cancer, after her death the following summer Kate decided to go for her doctorate in medicine. Once another graduation came and passed, she went off to Medical school for four years, having decided she wanted to pursue a career in Emergency medicine she started her internship at the local hospital, spending many hours in the E.R. She was there when the first infected patient came in, she remembered seeing the frightened look on the paramedics faces as they explained what had happened, she did not realize it at the time but it was just the start of a living hell.

ROLE: Doctor/Survivor

APPEARENCE: Kate is around 5'7 in height and has a runners build, her dark brown hair comes to rest just at her shoulders, majority of the time she keeps it up in a pony tail. Her eyes are a dark green, if your close enough you can just make out some light brown flecks, but lately she has not let anyone that close due to fear of infection. She has a tattoo of a lily on her right shoulder blade, and another one of a celtic cross on her ankle. Her daily attire use to be navy blue scrubs and a white coat, and right now it is what she is wearing minus the white coat part. The only clothes she has with her are a pair of jeans, clean socks and tank top, those are all in her backpack along with a few other medical suppiles she grabbed.

So begins...

Katherine Harris

Kate sat on a sand bag, she had been sitting behind the small table the evac people had set up to organize those few who where left, so far the man in the Hazmat suit had done nothing but make those in the makeshift camp mad. Matthew Hendricks, the man who had saved her skin at the hopsital was a few feet away pacing back and forth, his jeans where still stained with blood,some of it she was sure was that of his daughter. Her own appearence was not much better, but that did not matter, they were alive. That mattered.

"Matt stop pacing, you need to rest" She said looking up from her hands, the tall man kept walking, "We need to get out of here, hell we should have long since gotten out of here" he replied. He stopped walking and looked over at the chain link fence that was doing little to keep out the growing crowd of Walkers. Kate followed his gaze, then the sound of loud talking coming from another group across the camp got her attention, "Wonder what is going on with them?" she muttered, Matt frowned, "I don't know but its about time we figure something out, we will be safer in numbers anyway," he started to walk away towards the group. Kate just stayed seated watching him walk away, the faint sound of a helicoptor aproaching reached her ears over the sounds of the Walkers moans, Kate looked to the sky trying to see where the thing was coming from, she saw it off in the distance and smiled, rescue was here. But the smile didn't last, the helicoptor was flying crazy, she stood up, eyes still watching the bird as it fell to the ground and slid with a metallic screach.

At the sight of the pilot Kate grabbed her backpack and started running towards him, upon reaching where the man fell she quickly stepped back, her jaw dropped as she saw the extent of his injuries. The head Hazmat suit man slowly walked over, his mask prevented her from seeing his face, "He was the pilot coming to pick you all up, there won't be another pilot coming to this EVAC for another week."

Matt walked up behind her, "If thats the last pilot for a week what the hell are we to do?" his angery was obvious in his voice, his right hand drifted to the pistol at his waist, part of him wanted to shoot the dumb bastard right then, "Pack up everything you all have, this shit is just getting worse." Matt looked at the man standing across from the pilots body, he glanced at the ambulance that had been mentioned a few moments before before looking back at Chris. "Driving out of here is do-able," he said moving his hand from his gun, "Ya'll got room for two more? Might be better to stay together in the long run"

Aislin's ears perked. Just a few yards away a man was speaking in an accent quite like her own. She smiled, he was definitely someone she would make a point to talk to. It was nice hearing the voice from her homeland, it comforted her despite the situation... The situation that was just about to get worse. The next thing Aislin heard was a copter. Her heartrate increased momentarily, images of rescue flashing through her mind, before she noticed it's awkward jerking patterns. It swayed in the air, almost as if it was attached to a string and being swung around. Within the blink of an eye she was staring at a screeching chunk of metal crashing through whatever was in its way. The next horror was the pilot: that poor soul. She watched the fragments of what once was a man stagger around before finally collapsing in a pool of his own blood. Taking a deep breath, she turned away from the sight, figuring that the girl and the man who ran to him would make sure he didn't come back.

The next thing on her mind was a seemingly straight cut man. His hair had been spiked and his facial hair was shaved and appeared professional. The next thing out of his mouth was about the ambulance, and all of her focus was on him. This is it. This is our way out. Aislin started towards the man, stopping a few feet away to his side, waiting until after the pair had asked to go.

"I'd accompany you too, if ya'd have me. I can be of use medically if ya' need any assistance-I know a thing or two about Biology." She smirked, she was proud of her educational background. All through her schooling, she had worked as hard as she could, desperately trying to gain scholarships to afford coming to America. Some great thing that did. Regardless, she liked feeling useful, and would perform anything asked of her with little to no hesitation.

After Troy sheathed the knife he heard the man that argued with the suits, asked if anyone has a plan. Sure, Troy had a plan, but one that didn't include avoiding the monsters. Troy would rather be gung-ho and take as many of 'em as one can to escape. Seeing their work on the outside, well even if they all have a fighting spirit they would end up getting munched on. That was when another young guy came forth with a bag and mentioned he can take us in the Ambulance. Troy looked over to see the one that came in from earlier. This guy must be one of them medics or something. Troy made his way toward the group but stopped short on the sound of a helicopter. Troy quickly spun around to see what could have been their salvation, turned out to be another nightmare.

In came the copter like a bat out of hell and it crashed into the EVAC center. "Of all the fuckin' things!" Troy shouts as he watched the crash. Then was followed by a what looked like half a man, stumbling out and dying. "Shit!" Troy shouted again and walked up to the group. As he walked up two more people appeared, a man and a woman. It seems they want to catch the next bus out of here. If the the ambulance was their best shot out of here, then Troy is sure as hell he wants to go. "Wha' in the hell is goin' on 'ere!?" Troy shouted making his presence known. As he heard the others speaking of how much room they could hold, Troy didn't want to miss his spot. "Oi! I'll be takin' that one way trip outta 'ere too!" Troy boisterously called out after Aislin spoke. "I ain't goin' to be these fuckers next meal!" Troy spoke as he gave them a look of determination. He isn't going to be left behind, he's going whether they like it or not.

"He's drunk...at least I hope..." Sam thought as the man who had been antagonizing the geeks along the fence strolled over and started shouting at them. His accent was pretty strong but he made his intention pretty clear. As did the other girl with the eye makeup and slightly easier accent next to the older gent. The other woman seemed a bit older than himself, as well as the man with her. They looked oddly familiar, like he'd seen them somewhere before. Maybe the hospital during one of his runs?

"It's fine, It's fine." Sam said. By his count, that was seven people, eight if the girl nearby with the blue bandana around her wrist came as well. "It will be a bit cramped, but the bed was taken out when we got here so there's room. He took up Cane's kit again and strode to the back of the ambulance and opened the doors. His kit lay on the floor to the right, where he left it. He placed Cane's bag on top of his. "Someone can sit on that, nothing inside will break." There was also a long bench on the right side that could sit three comfortably, four in this case, with a cargo net lining the wall behind the passenger seat to hold onto. A large cabinet was built into the bench where various supplies were kept. More cabinets scaled the wall to the right side as well as another seat where a technician such as himself, or paramedic would sit to tend to the patient.

Sam reached up into the cabinets on the left and pulled two plastic morgue drapes free to lay down over the coagulated blood and muck left behind from the animated man. It was too apparent on the large space in the absence of the stretcher that normally occupied it. "That should do it. Anybody else?" He turned back to Christopher. "I'll drive, I take it you're up front with me?"

Sam didn't have any other belongings besides the kit and everything in the Ambulance and was still fairly close to it when the gate came crashing down. Most of the others had been trapped on the other side of the fence and where the geeks were flooding in. He decided to get to the van before too many were on him when a firm grip grabbed a hold of his clothing and pulled him off balance. As he twisted and pulled against the grip, he heard a rough accent yelling at him. Troy finally let go of him and kept yelling at Sam to come on or give him the keys. "Just get in the damn van already!" Sam yelled back.

Sam jumped in the driver's seat and started the Ambulance as Troy kept his guttural yelling. "Shut up already!" He snapped. There was no way Sam was just going to floor it and take off without the others, but there was a horde of geeks and a gate in his way. "Ah Fuck it!" Sam put the pedal to the floor and shifted the gear to drive. The van stuttered a second as it crashed over the fence and the few geeks clawing behind it. They bumped and banged over undead bodies as Sam tried to avoid hitting too many at once.

He drove past the survivors to allow them access to the back of the van and stopped as close as he could to them without hitting anyone. He left the Ambulance running and opened the doors to the back. "Hurry up! Get in!" He yelled over the sounds of destruction.

Shit hit had hit the fan.

As the fence fell Matt pushed kate behind him and raised his pistol, "Everybody! Gather to us and make a triangle formation! women to the back, men to the front!" the two moved back towards the older man, Kate watched as the Hazmat man tried to run, but the bulk of his suit slowed him. The walkers quickly overtook him, he went down with a scream, it was quickly silenced. The triangle formation was working, Kate not having a gun kept a eye out for any walkers getting too close for comfort. The ambulance busted through the fence and took down a few Walkers, the back doors opened and the paramedic yelled for them to get in, Kate was one of the first inside, she quickly turned back to help the others in, offering her outstretched hand to whoever needed it.

Of course, the second things start ta' look up the bloody wall crashes in. Lovely.

Aislin tightened the straps on her pack as fast as she could before reaching for her AK 47 automatic knife. It wasn't a very long knife, so she'd have to work twice as fast to avoid direct infection via a nasty bite. Not to mention it would hurt like a bitch, and the chances escaping after one grabbed me are little to nothing. Plus, I'd be shot after that bite, no doubt about it. Then again, the adrenaline in my bag has the potential to- Aislin's thoughts were stopped short as she became aware she was face to face with a repulsive blood-spewing zombie. She wanted to freeze, petrified with fear. But she didn't have time for that. Her body instantly went into survival mode. Twisting her torso to the side so she was facing down, she lifted her leg and shoved hard, sending the undead abomination back away from her face, out of her danger zone. Immediately memories of all her kickboxing classes flooded her memory, and then all contemplation of the situation left her head. There was no thought process. Her instincts took over.

Flicking the knife in her hand out, she dove forward, running low to the ground until she was upon the walker she kicked down. Within an instant the knife was lodged into his eye socket, and she pulled it back just as quickly as she had been upon him. Next thing Aislin attempted was to swing her right leg up, following an invisible arch as her left hand planted on the ground to steady herself. Sure, she sort of hit one walker in the jaw, but the next one was a larger man. Her foot hit his stomach, stopping her motion instantly. Rebounding off his body, she lost her balance and fell back on her elbows. The fat fleshy being started towards her, scratching her leg in the process of pulling her body towards his mouth. After releasing a short scream, Aislin's other foot made contact with his face. A satisfying crunch signified she had hit him hard enough to break his nose, perhaps even splitting his vomer. She didn't waste time. She rolled back up onto her feet, dashing towards the ambulance that seemed to appear out of nowhere. Dodging zombies left and right, she finally made it to the vehicle and grabbed the woman's hand, hoisting herself into the back.

Red Flowers

Several things happened at once, but Red didn't process them until later. All that mattered was reaching that ambulance. The man who had shot down the zombies around her was helped by an older gentleman and she followed the older one's instructions to follow. In no time, he had taken hold of the woman's hand and leaped into the ambulance and stumbled nearly to the front of the vehicle. The driver there looked hurried and panicked.

Twisting about, Red saw more nearly to the ambulance. She didn't know these people, she owed them nothing. Except that man who helped her, the one with the sunglasses unfortunately. Rushing forward, she two stretched out her hand, urging them to hurry up onto the ambulance. "Don't got all day!" she called, eyebrows furrowed, waving the last few forward. The two other women who had safely reached the van seemed just as eager to get everyone on board, but not as impatient. Red nearly growled and shouted, "C'mon!"
