He turned and ran down the stairs to the morgue. John Doe followed him down there and away from anyone he could potentially hurt. Everyone else was hopefully evacuated and far away from there.
Benjamin realized that once he was down there, that he essentially trapped himself in a room with him with only one way out. Hopefully his plan would work because he had no time to come up with another one. Benjamin ran over to the incinerator and pressed the button to turn it on.
John Doe ran at him and knocked him to the ground. Benjamin pushed on his shoulders to keep his teeth from biting into his flesh. “Mr. C!” Dante screamed as he came in the doorway. His hand slipped, Benjamin felt John Does teeth bite into his shoulder.
He screamed and pushed him the body off of him. Dante grabbed a bed pan from the table and smacked John Doe in the face. John Doe lunged at Dante. Benjamin grabbed his arm, turned him around and threw him onto the metal table that slid into the incinerator.
Dante helped Benjamin push him in and shut the door. He slid down to the floor holding a hand over his wound. “You okay Mr. C?” He sighed and held out his hand to keep Dante from coming any closer. “No, don’t touch me you might pass it on to yourself.”
“Pass what…oh shit.” Dante said when he moved his hand away.
“Yeah oh shit is right.”
He looked at the wound on his shoulder and saw the black ooze seeping into him. He muttered a bunch of curses under his breath. He could feel it. Whatever it was, had started inside his body.
“I need you to do some things for me okay, Dante nodded, This outbreak needs to be contained, I need you to find a man named Henry Boyd. Tell him he needs to alert the people of a cannibalistic outbreak. He needs to find where this all started.”
“What if he doesn’t believe me?” “Robert sent me those pictures of John Doe, Benjamin could barely move to take his phone out of his pocket, they’re on my phone. Now for the other thing I need you to do. I need you to go pick up Lydia and take her somewhere this outbreak hasn’t gotten to yet.”
“What am I supposed to say to her?”
“Leave that part to me, hit the record button on that thing kid.” He recorded a message for Lydia on his phone for Dante to give to her. The only thing left was something even Benjamin wasn’t even ready for. “I need one last thing from you.” He said looking up at Dante then over to the incinerator.
Dante shook his head,
“No, I can’t do that.” “Listen kid, I’m not thrilled about you being the one to take me out of the equation either but I will not become one of those things.” Dante closed eyes and paced back and forth in front of him, “You said so yourself, I can’t make the decision whether or not someone lives or dies, you were right. I can’t do it.”
Benjamin coughed and a glop of blood came out of his mouth, “Look I know I said that and a lot of other things but this is what’s happening and I don’t think it’s going to be the hardest thing you have to do. You have to do it, as your boss I’m making you do it.”
“Shit.” Dante stomped his foot, opened the door to the incinerator and pulled out the table. *Note* So I noticed that my posts for this story were kinda long so I decided to shorten my story posts to about 15-20 pages. Hopefully this makes it easier to read :)
