- History -

Lucas was roaming around from city to city on his lonesome. After making it to Colorado he met a group. He stayed with that group and made some allies and also some enemies. He helped these new allies when they were being attacked by thugs, this granted him their respect. Unfortunately one of those allies suddenly passed away, she was infected and had a bullet put in her head as soon as she stopped breathing. Lucas helped one of his new allies cope with this by watching his back as his ally let off some steam killing a horde of infected.

He met more allies after this massacre and they all stayed strong. After Minneapolis, some of his allies had left the group and went their own way, Lucas did not stop them, he knew it wasn't up to him anyway. During his traveling he had seen many horrific things such as; nurseries painted in blood, infected children and even some infected animals that attacked him. He made it though, he is now 24 years old.

Lucas now lives in Southern Kentucky with his good friend Leon. He started a relationship with Zanetta, one of his allies from Colorado and goes to her foster parents farm to help them if they need it or just to see Zanetta. Lucas, Leon, Zanetta and her foster parents have been through many things together, which gives trust for eachother.

Opening his eyes slowly, Lucas woke up and hopped out of bed. He made his bed, and straightened the room up a bit, when suddenly he smelled smoke coming from outside.
"Are they having having a barbecue or something." He said quietly.
He looked out of the window and saw black smoke rising from the barn.
As six years had passed, Lucas gained a relationship with Zanetta and moved to Richard's farm in a guest house with Leon. Zanetta and Lucas' relationship grew stronger as years passed, even taking Zanetta's virginity.
Lucas always watched out for Zanetta, even though her "enhancement" made her stronger and faster than he was, he still worried and looked out for her.

Lucas quickly put on the nearest shirt on, he was wearing a tight white shirt, black jeans and black converse shoes. He went to Leon's room and woke him up;
"Hey, get up, there is a fire, something is wrong!" He yelled to Leon to wake him up.
All Lucas could think about was Zanetta, and Richard and Darcy's children.
He ran through the house and grabbed one of his HK45 pistols. He no longer used his bow, because he ran out of arrows years ago, and still hadn't found anymore.

As he made his way outside he saw the barn was burnt down to the ground, and Zanetta standing in front of it. He quickly ran inside Richard's house to see if everyone was okay, he saw Belinda holding the baby, and the twins at the table trying to look outside.
"Oh, thank God." Lucas said as he sighed in relief.
After checking on the children he snuck up behind Zanetta trying to shock her, hugging her from behind and kissing her on the cheek.
"What happened?" He asked.

Zanetta jumped alittle and turned her head to Lucas, his head nestled neatly and comfortable in her neck, his eyes looking up to hers. A smiled crept up on her face then she laughed. ''Y-you scared me there, even though I heard you coming, you still scared me.'' She laughed some more then kissed his forehead.

Jake looked up at Lucas, his blue eye quite distracting the others, though not Zanetta still after so many years. He was tilt his head and pant, wagging his tail happily as he saw Lucas though as Zaneet and Lucas exchanged affections he would squeeze inbetween them both, in effort to split them apart. He was always like that at the moent with Zanetta though it was never aggressive.

She would laugh at Jake and bend down to him, stroking him on his ears, he would almost purr as it was his favourite scratching spot. ''You...my little Jakey boy will always be my baby!'' She would then put her forehead against his, he would then lick her and she would giggle then stood up again, turning her body towards Lucas.

NIGHTmares were in the shed, they attacked Richard but luckily he is so strong and talented as he is otherwise he would be dead..'' She was become silent at the though then smile again and continue. ''But all is well and...well...he had to burn the shed though I think, no, I know Darcy is probably mad at him for it.'' She would laugh under her breath then turn to Richard again. ''So do you want the help or not?''

Nicholas Solidor

Nicholas woke up, sitting straight up with his heart pumping.
"Another nightmare." He whispered to himself frustrated. This was a routine for him every time he slept. It would be, survive and find some shelter, go to sleep and wake up from nightmares about his sister; Maggie.
As he got up, he folded one of the curtains and wrapped around his backpack, since it wouldn't fit inside. After he finished doing his morning work out, he checked the bar out one more time and found some energy drinks inside one of the cupboards right behind the counter. It said on the can that it doesn't expire, as long as the can is never opened. He found 3 cans.
"Perfect." He said, with a smile on his face.

He exited out of the building through the back, and saw the alley way was clear. It was good so far. There was no way on to the roof of this building without a ladder, and it was the same for all the other buildings.
"8:32am, I guess I have to do this the hard way." He said as he was creeping around the alley way. Then he remembered the alcohol in his backpack, but then thought again; "No, I'll save this for later."

As he looked up to one of the rooftops, he saw a crawler. "Shit! What are crawlers doing all the way out here?"
He looked down to the direction he was moving and saw a forest. "That's probably where it came from.
He took his sniper aiming straight at its head, this was the only idea he had that actually had a chance with living through it. As long as that crawler was alive, he would get caught for sure. BANG Nicholas shot the crawler right in the head, the sound of the gun alarmed all of the infected. Nicholas put his sniper away and sprinted out of the alley way, with the earphones in his ears listening to his favourite song, trying to dodge every infected attack.

Some infected grabbed onto his clothes, but lost its grip, or he just slipped out of their hands. Luckily, Nicholas was quick and small, which came to his advantage. As he made it deep into the city, he didn't stop running, he ran until he reached the other side of the town. As he was at the exit, he ripped a piece off of his curtain blanket and put it in one of the bottles of alcohol, then lit it on fire. He then through it to the ground, blocking the whole exit of the entrance leaving anything that walked through to burn and rot.
"I hope there was no survivors in that town."

After that, he looked at his watch; "Seven minutes." He shook his head in disappointment, if it wasn't for that crawler, he would've been quicker. He then took care of one straggler that was wandering around the open fields and made his way to the forest, resting on a large rock to catch his breathe.

Leon smiled as he got onto his motorbike, he looked around before driving off into the night. He got into the nightclub and smiled, the nightclub turned into a cyclone and swirled around. He gripped a pole and was soon pulled into the swirl. Leon looked around as he stood in a white room that was filled with light.
"Hello?" He called out.
He looked around until he saw a figure standing there.
"Oi Mate, can you help me out, I don't know whats happening and-"
The figure turned around and Leon fell to his knees.
"Liam?" He coughed out. He looked around as he was now surrounded by people. His mother, his father, Lilith and a few others. He looked at his brother as he started to ripple away.
"Noo!" He yelled.


"Hey, get up, there is a fire, something is wrong!" Lucas yelled.
Leon's eyes snapped open but his body wasn't as fast as his eyes as he struggled to get up. He finally managed to sit up he scratched his skin and his scar was standing out on the whole of him. He grabbed a random shirt and pulled it over his head, he slipped on his shoes as he was walking out the door and ran a hand through his hair before going past the mirror. He walked outside behind Lucas and sighed. He was kind of sick of these new zombies, it was way better when six years ago there was only one.... breed? He didn't know what to call it, they were mutations basically and Leon missed the days that the only thing that roamed where the normies.

As Lucas stood there, Zanetta ran off with Richard and Connor so fast, that he wasn't quick enough to volunteer.
"Whatever!" Lucas yelled at them as they left.
He turned around saw Leon standing behind him, "Sorry mate, Richard took care of it. We probably have to bold another one." He said as he sighed and walked back to his house.

Lucas saw that Jake was left behind when Zanetta left, "Come on, Jake!" Lucas was making his way back to the house as with Jake, he then turned around and said; "Are you coming?" He asked and continued walking. He saw little Alex through the window and started making faces and waved.

Lucas placed Jake's breakfast in his bowl, and then he went to his bathroom and began to have a shower.

Zanetta started to panic as Richard joked about her and him being in on the burning of the shed event that she ran into. She could still smell the thick smoke of wood and flesh in her clothes and hair. *I think I will need to have a shower after this...maybe Lucas will join me.* She thought, her cheeks blushing madly at the thought and a wide smile appeared on her face.

She then snapped out of it as Richard asked for her help and she shook her head. ''Yeah! Yeah! Of course!'' She shouted still slightly out of it as she jumped out of thought to quickly. She then as she passed Richard pinched the back of his neck for a kick of her own and as a gental revenge for even suggesting that it was her fault the shed was a pile of ash.

She then dragged the corpses from the truck, thier body mass huge yet she had no trouble with it. Dragging them away far from the truck she then dropped the part of the NIGHTmare's she held onto to drag them in the first place then went back to the truck and got out matches, petrol and some wood and walked back at the corpses.

She then chucked the wood onto the corpses with no attachment to them like she used to six years ago, she learned that once they changed, they were not human, if she knew this before she wouldn't of been scarred for life. She was so emotionally unstable in her youth.

She then splashed petrol over the bodies then lit a match and flicked it onto the pile of corpse and wood, the flame from the match burning her skin alittle but just to heal instantly afterwards, she didn't even feel the pain.

Then she pile lit up brightly, the smoke not as thick as it was back at the farm, not as dark either but the smell was still less to be desire. She held her nose and backed away then stood near Richard as she watched the flame consume the corpses.

She then turned her head to Richard then looked back to the flames. ''Alot has changed...hasn't it? And your boss...that Scott guy is in a powerfully position. I think that is a big...big problem.'' With that she sighed then looked at Conor and smiled as she beckoned him over.

He skipped his way to her and stood at her side, hugging her then he would look up at her scarred, discoloured arm and rub it alittle, catching her attention then locked eyes. ''Does it hurt Antie?'' He would asked timidly with such innocence, a part of the twins Zanetta loved about them though Conor was always the first to jump into places that had adventure in them, just like his father, Richard.

She would look down to him and smile, kissing his forehead. ''No, not anymore.'' She would reply smply he would smile in turn then his mouth would open again. ''Y-your arm looks alot like those monsters skin does.'' He would point out bluntly. Her eyes saddening but she would continue to smile at him, knowing that kids were just like that.

''I know, but I am not one of them. Even if I-'' She would stop there and bend down to him, her arms on his shoulders with a warm smile on her face, his face tilted alittle. ''I will never be a monster, and I will always be here to protect you, your sisters and parents.'' He would hug her, nuzzling his face into her arms, she would squeeze alittle. ''I know you will, you are like a superhero!'' He would blurt out and she would laugh in turn. Releasing from the hug Conor would continue to look at the flames, his face full of excitment and awe.

She would continue to look at the flames also but then her lips would part. ''I will always be here Richard....even if I am different.''

Closing his eyes, Lucas stroked his hand through his wet hair. He started to smile, thinking how 6 years ago, it was rare to even find fresh water.
Lucas started to wash his upper body and feel his scars, he laughed as he felt them. The funny thing is, he got those scars before the outbreak, from rock climbing, to BMX riding, to any other sport he could think of. As he was washing himself, he heard Jake whining and watched as he walked out the door.
"What's the matter boy?" He asked, but Jake just kept moving. Lucas assumed he need to use his own 'bathroom' outside.

As Lucas finished his shower, he wrapped a towel around his bottom half of his body and wiped the steam off of the mirror and looked at his reflection. Looking at his scars. There was one that went down his abs, that was from a BMX accident, when he fell of his bike and rolled down the steepest hill he had ever ridden on in his life. The one reaching from the back of his shoulder blade, down to the middle of his back, was from rock climbing, when he slipped, luckily the rope held on to him, but he scraped down the rocky mountain on his back, giving him the scar.

After remembering about his past, he brushed his teeth and began to walk out of the bathroom, with his body still dripping down with water.

Lucas finally got dressed wearing a tank top, with blue jeans and white converse chucks. He then went to the kitchen and had a glass of juice for breakfast.
"It's awfully quiet at this time of day." Lucas thought to himself.
He grabbed one of his pistols and tucked it in the back of his jeans, putting his top over to cover it from showing. As he walked outside, he looked around, turning his head from left to right and didn't see anyone. He didn't even see Jake, or any sign that he did he his job.
Lucas walked more into the field, he saw Darcy's house, and he saw little Maggie, Belinda and Alex. But something was off, they were all looking in the same direction, Lucas then to looked in that direction and saw Richard and Darcy arguing in front of Zanetta on the floor in a mud puddle.
"Zanetta!" Lucas yelled as he ran towards her and dropped to his knees.
He then lifted her up and started walking back with Zanetta in his arms. He saw Richard and Darcy still arguing, and he didn't want to get in the middle of it.

Lucas placed Zanetta on the couch in the guest house, getting the couch and himself dirty from her muddy body. Lucas didn't know what was going on. He took off his shirt and wiped all of the mud off her boy and then through it inside of an empty basket.

"It was a pretty hot day today, she could've fainted from the heat?" He thought.
He just sat by her side thinking about what caused this as Jake sat next to them.

"Hey!" Darcy sounded as she came in through the back door of the guest house into the small cottage almost dropping the three full plates in her hands.

Luckily she just about managed it and quickly slid them onto the counter top before they could fall to the ground. "I've bought food." She said more happily then she felt at the moment as she walked into the living room.

She stopped in the doorway as she saw Zanetta still unconscious on the couch, Lucas sitting in front of her on the coffee table, Jake on the floor next to them. Leon was nowhere in sight, Darcy noted.

Sighing she moved towards the shirtless man. She placed a gentle hand on Zanetta's forehead. It was pretty heated but it wasn't burning up bad or anything. It was like when the children had a cold or a temperature.

"Just seems like a heat stroke." Darcy said to Lucas as she brushed the back of her hand against Zanetta's cheek "I don't think it's anything serious."

It was so incredibly hot out here in Kentucky.

Zanetta stirred at Darcy gentle ministrations.

"See, she's already waking." Darcy said with a smile at Lucas who looked tense and worried.

Darcy headed back to the kitchen to get a glass of water for the girl.

To set the mood..

Zanetta laid on the couch looking in the distance, no where in particular then she looked at Lucas then she slowly put her hand on his cheek and she smiled, it slowly shivering from pain. Tears started to fall down her face then she spoke. ''You know I love you right?'' She would say, her heart in her throat as she spoke. She would stroke his face alittle her face full of tears yet a smile showing deep love then she would put her hand down and get up.

She would then cry trying to be silent then she would look at Lucas, her face full of fear then slowly show her arm. The discolouration of her skin had spread, along with the darkening of her veins, her hand limp she would look down. ''It...it is spreading Lucas...'' She would admit as she placed her hands over her face to hide her tears, her sadness.

''I am not....nor-normal...the more time goes on...the more...I change.'' She struggled out then she would stand up holding Lucas's shirt, smelling it even. ''I love you....you know that right?'' She would say again then look at the bathroom door. ''I...I am going to shower, Richard asked for my help earlier and well...it was messy.'' She would put a brave face on then look down to Jake.

She would smile at him and give him a quick stroke then at the corner of her eye she saw Darcy. She instantly turned around and wiped away the tears then turn to her again with a fake smile, her face pale and tired. ''Oh, hi Darcy...y-you okay now?'' She would ask then she would place her hand on her face turned away from her. ''C-could you get Richard to come...I need to talk to him, but I will have a shower first.'' She would then turn her face to Darcy again and smile with delight. ''And some of your cooking.''

Jake would pant happily as he saw Darcy and rub himself on her legs, his tail hitting Darcy's legs gentally as it wagged.

Lucas looked at Zanetta as she held his shirt. "I will love you no matter what."

"Thank you for all that you've done for Leon and I. If it wasn't for you and Richard, we would probably still be out there fighting the government or something." Lucas said to Darcy as he watched over Zanetta.
"And we probably wouldn't be eating any of your famous cooking either." Lucas said as he looked at the food smiling.
Lucas put on the dirty tank top, because he didn't like it when Zanetta
saw his scars.
Lucas kissed Zanetta on the forehead and went to the counter readied everyone's meal with cutlery next to the plates.
"Where is Leon?" he thought.
Looking outside he called out; "Leon! Darcy made some food." Lucas shook his head, "He is always so lost these days. Have you had anything to eat?" He asked Darcy.

Darcy simply smiled softly at Lucas's kind words.

"Yes, I've eaten." She lied not wanting to be forced into having food, knowing that's what would happen if she said she hadn't.

Darcy patted the dog and then pushed him away as she walked towards Zanetta who Lucas had let go of now, putting the glass of water down on the Coffee table and wrapped her arms around Zanetta the way she would have done to Connor or Alex.

She had heard what Zanetta had said about her arm and it was worrying Darcy but she would have to be calm and strong for Zanetta.

Darcy soothed Zanetta as she wiped away the girls tears.

"Shhh, Zanetta." Darcy lulled the girl "It'll be alright. Everything's going to be fine." She lied swallowing the lump in her throat "You're going to be absolutely fine." She smiled down into the girls face who was holding onto her and crying softly.

This day just got so much more worse.

"Go have a shower." Darcy said pulling away but still holding Zanetta by the arms "And then have something to eat and rest, Okay?"

Zanetta nodded.

"And I'll have Richard come around a little later alright?" Darcy told her.

She watched silently as Zanetta walked away and then Darcy turned to Lucas.

"Make sure she eats something and has plenty of water in this heat."

"Yes ma'am" Lucas nodded as he began to eat his food. Even though he was starving, he still took his time eating his food, and having manners in it.
"This is delicious." He said to Darcy.
"So... I was going to keep watch tonight in case any nightmares show up again. Don't want them to sneak into any of our houses." He said before he started to eat again.
"What are you up to now?" He asked Darcy.

"It's not that good." Darcy said with a smile and a short laugh as she sat down for a moment next to Lucas. "And I don't think that will be necessary Lucas. The NIGHTmares, that was just a one off bad luck chance but if it helps you sleep better go ahead."

She really didn't think it would be happening again anytime soon, if ever. The farm was out in the middle of nowhere and it was miles and miles from the closest town that may have human inhabitants, so it was very unlikely that they would be visited again.

"What are you up to now?" Lucas asked breaking her meanderings.

"Ummm, nothing much important." Darcy said as she folded her arms on the table "Just have a few chores to take care of."

A few chores that could wait awhile. Thought Darcy darkly. She was not ready to go back to the house.

"And I better get going." Darcy said as she got up and headed towards the back door. "Let me know if you need anything else." She called over her shoulder as she opened the back door and stepped out into the bright almost blinding sun light.

As Lucas was eating his food, he heard Zanetta and Jake playing.
"Showering with Jake again." He thought as he shook his head.
He took off his dirty shirt leaving him shirtless again, since Zanetta wasn't there to see his scars.

Well, he was just glad that Zanetta was laughing and having fun again. Leon finally came back inside and joined Lucas, with eating.
"Showering with Jake again?" Leon asked, and Lucas answered by nodding his head.
He walked up stairs to get a new shirt because his one was covered in mud. He walked passed the bathroom;
"Settle down." He said jokingly, making fun of them.

Zanetta looked at Lucas and Jake did so in sync with her and she giggled as she tiptoed to Lucas in her naked glory and wrapped her arms around his neck, gentally of course even though she liked it rough. Her eyes locked on his, her eyes full of lust. ''Just because you want it to be you playing with me instead.'' She said teasingly as water crawled down her slender body eventually dripping onto the floor.

Jake got from the shower and shook himself dry away from Lucas and Zanetta then trotted out from the bathroom wagging his tail that would occasionally splash water around. He would then notice Leon was back and run to him and sit directly between his legs as he sat eating on a kitchen stool and pant loudly to await attention.

As Lucas walked pass, Zanetta walked out and grabbed him, putting her arms around his neck. Lucas smiled and kissed her on the lips, she walked back to go and clean herself, Lucas then turned around to walk to the bedroom but Zanetta finished washing herself already.
"That was quick." He said, looking surprised.
Zanetta smiled and kissed him on the cheek. After she got dressed, "I'm going for a run." She said as she walked out.
"Make sure you get something to eat!" He tried to tell her as she was running out.

Lucas shook his head and put another white tank top out of his draw and slipped into it. He then walked downstairs and sat next to Leon, and continued to eat his food.
"Jake, isn't here, he is probably running with Zanetta." He thought.

The song for this moment...

Zanetta had watched Richard and Darcy go back to the farm, her face pale and her mouth dropped, frozen in the same state of shock. *I just watched them...do stuff...they are like parents to me!! I am offically scarred for life..* She would think as she got from the grass then headed to the same spring.

She would look down at her chest and sigh with frustration. ''Oh come on! Wait...I could wear a scarf.....and die in this head..damn it..'' She would say aloud to herself as she removed her torn up clothing and placed it to the side of her. She would hop into the spring and shivers would travel up and down her spine for five minutes, gritting her teeth to stop them from chattering.

She would finally sit into the spring yelping under her breath from the freezing water, her nipples going hard from it. She would look down to her chest again to look at it more closely. Her chest that had been torn apart, skin flaps from where the Crawler exposed her rib cage, luckily her lungs or even her heart weren't damaged in the process but then again what were her body's limits? But she certainly wasn't going to excerise that in real combat situations like she put herself in.

The skin that has started to heal itself was amazing but also creepy...as it was at the moment like the NIGHTmares remaining skin, seethrough like jelly but hers was more sturdy and now she could poke and prod it, it felt like jelly, you could see her veins thread within this seethrough hardened shell of jelly, it coloured with blue from the veins and red from from the flesh pigment and dark red from her bumping heart and light pale red from her breathing lungs. Though seeing her lungs and heart working away from just looking at her chest was sickening even though it was her own organs. You could even see blood flowing through her veins if you looked closely enough. One word, creepy. Her chest was like a two way mirror or a glass cover, just not as fragile.

She would get used to the spring's water temperature and start scrubbing her own blood from her skin, carefullt rubbing her chest just to make sure it was clean then wash the Crawler's and NIGHTmare's blood from her hair. Finally she would splash the water like a little kid then sigh. She was starting to come to terms with herself and her differents with the ones she loved and today enforced this new found acceptance and she smiled to herself, both from the outside and inside.

She would turn her head up to the sky and watch the twinkling stars and the bright moon for a time, here on the farm it was a clear, cloudless night sky and it was truely beautiful, something precious in this new dangerous world. Then she would stand up from the water, the breeze making her body shiver again then she would stand there then shake her head as she refused to put the wrecked clothes back on and left them under the tree, they were ripped violently and bloody like a urder had happened.

So she walked stark naked back to the guest house then as she reached the door she would sigh then leg it into hers and Lucas's room, trying to cover up her see through chest, whether she suceeded she did not know.

Then she would shove on her long cotton nighty that looked like a oversized tee shirt. Then she would finally eat Darcy's cooking, once and a while checking under her nighty to see if her chest was healing...

----------------

Jake then stopped tugging on Lucus's trouser leg as soon as he heard her feet run passed him then sit at the dinner table and sit beside Zanetta, his tail wagging more calmly then suddenly it whipped Zanetta's leg and she would stopping eating and looking under her nighty for a moment. ''I know Jake..'' She would reply to him without looking at him then continue eating and he would pant happily again, at that moment it would seem they were communing with eachother and that, they were..

After Lucas ate, he grabbed all of the dishes and made his way to the kitchen. He ran the water in the sink and began to wash the dishes.

After he finished, he walked over to Zanetta and kissed her on the cheek from behind.
"I'm just gonna be outside." He whispered into her ear.

Walking outside, he walked to the forest with his two machetes. Every now and then, he would go into the forest and kill wandering infected for fun, it also stops them from finding the farm.
He saw small groups of infected and started to have some fun.

Zanetta waved to Lucas with a loving smile. ''Be safe!'' She shout like she would always say to him before he left then she would finish up the food and wash it up sighing she would look under her nighty and sigh. *Still?!* She thought to herself though her healing chest had heal quite nicely over night but still had a long time to go as it was only just started to hide her internal organs, some parts of her chest were still visible however.

She would pet Jake on the head as he snored away under the eating table, he always slept there now which was cute then she would make her way to Hers and Lucas's room and put her some clothes....and a scarf as she didn't know how to explain her chest. *I'll just say I have a cold!....Ehhh..* she would shout in her thoughts then face palm as she took her scarf off again. ''No....that is just silly...'' She would say in outward thought.

She would be wearing a tanktop with a plad shirt, it tighted up to make her belly show and the buttons done up except the top which was weird for her as she was the first one to show off her flesh in the hot days.

Then she would walk out from the guest house and into the main house and shout. ''Morning all!!'' She would happily exclaim to them all/

The sun was high in the sky and Lucas was still in the woods hacking down infected. He loved the rush of when his life was in danger, it was like his drug. He went deeper and deeper, stalking infected like he was some wild animal stalking its pray.
He went so deep that, there was so many trees it almost completely blocked out the whole sun.

And then he heard a different kind of groan, the growl was heavier and lower. Lucas turned around slowly and faced the horrid beast.
"Nightmare..." Lucas thought to himself. He didn't even pay attention to the small group of regulars behind him, the Nightmare was the only thing he was worrying about. He stood there staring at it, the two machetes in both his hands with a strong grip, the infected behind him slowly getting closer.

If he was to get out of here in one living piece, he would have to kill the Nightmare before the others. All he could think about at this moment was Zanetta.
"Zanetta... If I don't make it out of this... I'm sorry..." He thought.
It was silent and eerie. As three infected were right behind him, Lucas turned around spinning his heel and beheaded two at the same time, and stabbed the third right between the eyes. Expecting the Nightmare to attack while his back was turned, Lucas turned back around getting ready to stab it head on, but it wasn't there anymore. He then heard it behind him, as he slowly turned around, the Nightmare pushed him, Lucas went flying a couple meters dropping one of his machete.

He then remembered he had his pistol with him, in the back of his jeans.
"Maybe this doesn't have to be close combat afterall..." He thought to himself. He grabbed his pistol and held one machete in his other hand, he ran head on towards it, and swung his machete, he sliced the Nightmare's arm off, but it counter-attacked and smashed Lucas against a tree.
"These assholes (British accent) are bloody strong..." He whispered as he was struggling to get back up.
The Nightmare now only had one arm, but it could still fight just as good.
"Why isn't this thing trying to eat me? It's just fighting. It's probably like a vulture... It likes to eat things after it kills them."

As the Nightmare began to sprint towards him, Lucas fired a round but the Nightmare dodged it with ease and once again knocked Lucas against another tree, his right side of his forehead split open a bit. Lucas was sitting down against the tree, very difficult to move at all.
"Shit...." The Nightmare sprinted towards him again, ready for the killing attack. Lucas looked up at the trees, and suddenly had an idea... He slowly got up from the tree, his ankle hurting, "Shit.. It's probably sprained." It was getting closer and closer, Lucas fired all he had at the leaves above, luckily he killed all of the other infected around the farm, and he was far away from the farm, so other infected wouldn't go near it. Leaves fell from the trees, but the Nightmare still made its way, then suddenly a ray of light came down through the whole he made with his bullets, and waited right in front of him. The Nightmare tried to slow down and slid into the sunlight, squirming and growling, then Lucas sliced the Nightmare's head off, while it was distracted.

Lucas could barely walk, or even see where he was going, with the blood dripping down his face. Lucas made his way back to the farm very slowly, limping, trying not grunt in pain loudly, but silently. He finally made it to the farm, and collapsed right in the middle of it. He saw Alex and Connor in their house through the window but, it was blurry. And he thought he saw Richard and Darcy, but the vision was too blurry to tell, then he fell unconscious.

Zanetta turned dead to the door, her brown eyes deepening in colour as she smelt a familar smell, NIGHTmare blood. She then sprinted out the door, her tied up shirt loosing, exposing her chest where you could see her skin thin, like that of a NIGHTmare's with her heart bumping and her lungs breathing. Only patches patches were healed up properly but had some time to go untinl it was fully healed. If you looked at it long enough you would see her skin cells reattaching to eachother, her blood cells multiplying and her bones growing again at a faster pace than any thing naturally should. Her bones grew like teeth as they started to return the rib cage back to normal.

She then followed her nose,her pupils glowing as her eyes switched to heat sensory then a heart beat caught her eye. ''That is no NIGHTmare.'' She would note, blinking her eyes and they glowed no longer as they returned to normal and she would walk to the heart beat's position, but guarded but as soon as she saw it was Lucas her guard broke and she ran to him.

Her feet sliding as she fell to the ground next to Lucas, she stroked his face, her hands gental and slightly cold she would turn Lucas's body to face the sun and she would unbutton his shirt and start checking for wounds other than his gash on his forehead. ''Lucas! Wake up!'' She'd shout, her voice full of worry and she didn't realise her see through chest was in full view to Lucas and anyone else if she turned to them.

''L-Lucas! Have to been bitten? Scratched?'' She would ask, her hands shaking at the thought of him revealing that he had since one, you was not immune and two....couldn't heal by himself like her.

She'd then hit the ground to the side of Lucas, causing a deep hole in the earth as she jumped to her feet and into the kitchen and get a damp cloth and medical kit.

Running back out she'd start to wipe away the blood on him to see if he had indeed been bitten or scratched. ''Come on Lucas...You're okay now....j-just wake up..'' She would continued to stay.

She'd then take her shirt off as the heat of the day was getting to her more than normal, as stress tend to get you flustered easily. She was only wearing a tanktop underneath her see through chest reflecting light away from it as the see through muscle and tissue was as hard as bone as the moment, unable to be as flexible as skin was as it was healing.

(OOC: This is what her chest looks like, just more think in yellowish white tones, and blood flowing through the veins, the heart bumping and her lungs breathing. It is also patchy as the healing continues.)
