I would like to give a super-duper awesome thank you to E.A. Scott for helping me with this new story. So, thank you, my friend. I couldn't have done it without you. And I would like to thank my sister in helping me make this too. Thank you both for helping me.

Chapter 2

(An hour before the outbreak)

This is not happening…this is not happening…

Those four words went through my head like a broken record as I pulled to the side of the road.

"What's happening, Ro?" My little sister, Erika, asked, peering out the window.

"This can't be right! They didn't!" I growled and shoved open my door and got out.

"Ro? What are you doing?" Erika asked; concern on her small features.

"Stay in the car, Erika." I ordered and hurried up to the police officers.

"Ma'am, stay back, this is a quaran-" I cut the guy off by showing him my ID badge.

Just then, Dr. Charles Wychester came out. "Ah, Dr. Isenberg, you might want to take a look at this."

I rolled my eyes and pointed at the young cop in front of me, who still refused to let me through.

"Hey, greenhorn, let the lady through, she's part of our research team." Wychester snapped tiredly.

The cop muttered a quick apology. I smiled a little and patted his shoulder as I walked by. "Just so you know in the future,"

"Ro!" I heard Ericka shout several yards from me.

I spun around and glared at her. "I told you to stay in the car."

Ericka rolled her eyes and snorted. "I might be younger than you by three years but I'm not a baby,"

I sighed. "Ericka-"

"And I am a part of this research too." She finished smugly.

I groaned. "Okay, fine, but-"

"But keep silent, I know."

I gave up. I spun back around and raised my eyebrows at the cop, whose tag read Buches. He smiled quickly.

"If she's the sis, then I have no objections,"

I laughed, giving him another pat on the shoulder. "Quick learner, I see,"

As I walked towards the tent, I heard him mutter a quick: "So they tell me," and I was out of range.

I'm so sorry that this chapter was too short. I will make up for it, I promise. Leave suggestions if you want. I'm open to ideas. Oh, and I would also like to thank these people, also, for helping out a bunch too. So thank you freddyburn and Dawnseclipse327.
