For a moment there was nothing that needed to be said, The American Alpha managed to put two of the most mentally effed up members on the same team; coincidentally both of them had Cat's family to blame. "It's ok you know, I know Jacob told us to use restraint, but he's not in a walker-infested close quarter sewer system, trying not to get bit."
She finally said, speaking on Zoe's decesion to kill the walkers. Inherently, Cat was going to kill them anyways, sure these things were people, but what happens once their brains are functioning again? Are they doomed to live a life of traumatic episodes like Zoe?
That's no life to live, and we both knew it. "My Grandmother was a horrible parent, so in turn so was my mother. I truly believes she means the best for us. I also truly believe the only child she was meant to have was Isadora, but she's gone too." Cat explained, feeling the dark coating on her skin writhing in agony in response to Zoe's flames. "I actually wish Maya got bit, and not you. Because that means we'd be curing an otherwise irrational version of her, instead of having a dark rational version of her to deal with." Cat explained with her eyes wincing through the darkness as if; she spotted something ahead.
"I know we're having this sweet little bonding moment, so I have to be honest with you. I've got more gas than exxon right now" she admitted whilst creating a bit of distance between herself and Zoe. "I thought I was going to split my uniform when I created those tendrills."
"Aha, if you're going to be farting, atleast throw me the alleyoop next time" Zoe said with a faint grin. Cat's grin faded on the sight of another one of those crawling monsters, but it wasn't alive; as a matter of fact it was cut cleanly in-half.
"...We didn't do that" Cat said, with a bit of hesistation. "No...we didn't" Zoe said, using her flames to illuminate the area, there were dozens of those little creatures cut off; almost a trail leading into a clearing with only one exit.
The destruction from above caused the street to cave in, which meant they now had too options. Head back the way they came, or head across the clearing to the exit.
Judging from the damage, this path was deliberatly made, why? Cat couldn't currently gather; but judging from the placement of debris over the other two exits...someone wanted trespassers hearded down this exit.
The two teammates began across the clearing, it seemed with each step the smell of rotten corpses became increasingly putrid. "I feel something below" Zoe said, running her feet along the groves off the concrete. "Imma see what it is..."
"NO ZOE!" Cat screamed, "Those are Gaslines... you'll send this place to Cardinal Hell"
Both of the women's head jerk toward the entrance, something was coming. It's feet clap like thunder against the stone underneath it's feet. It's sword sparked behind him, which instantly drew the attention of the Skull Queen.
"What. Is. That?"
These GenNEXT people, they turned the walkers into these ungodly abominations. The beast emerged from the darkness with a woman flailing around closely in it's arms.
"We have to save her!" Zoe screamed, before being held back by Cat. "This room...it's rigged to stop us." She said, pointing to the light that'd undeniably burn through her darkness, and the gaslines that'd destroy just about everything. Dropping the woman in the middle of the floor, these new walker almost dared them to come save the woman.
"Careful Zoe..." Cat said knowing the speed force was a part of her personal "armory" "These things can adapt."
