The past few minutes we found dick all but T1s to kill and no sign of team Bravo. They were all dead except for Ruby. No sign of West or Betty. They were in the wind and we were stuck in the mansion until day break or we found a ride onto the main road back to Raccoon city.
I sat on the steps of the stairway of the main room of the mansion waiting for Jill and Berry. I heard the explosion a few rooms away.
Jill. I glanced at Ruby who sat beside me cleaning her blade. She shook her head.
I sighed and stared at the door. The door opened and Jill came out naked from the waist down covered in herbs. I took off my vest and shirt and went over to her. Jill held up her hand with her other arm covering her breasts.
“Don’t. I’m covered in herbs and I was hit by acid.” She said.
“Let me see your back.”
Jill smiled. “Hell, no. I know it’s bad but I’ll live. Hey, Ruby baby.” She said.
“Hey, sweetie baby.” Ruby said.
I threw Jill the shirt as Berry came in carrying a struggling Betty.
Betty looked at me and screamed at the sight of me. Jill quickly put on my shirt and flenched at movement. We needed to get her to a doctor.
I didn’t look at Betty. She wasn’t a factor. But…I needed information she had. I sat down on the stairway.
“I want a vehicle out of here.”
“Alright. You let me go and there’s a jeep outside. Take it and go.” Betty said.
“I saw the jeep outside.” Jill said.
I got up but Ruby pushed me back down. I frowned at her. She smiled at me and kissed my lips.
“Sit a bit.” Ruby said and got up and faced off with Betty. “Why did you bring us here?”
“West planned all this? I’m just-“
“She’s lying.” I said listening to her heart beat and body movements.
Ruby nodded. “Why did you bring us here?”
Betty changed her breathing and tried to be calm. “West was hired to wipe out the teams and start-“
“She’s lying.” I said. “She won’t tell us the truth. Leave her to the dogs or kill her. I don’t give a fuck. Jill needs to get to a doctor.”
“I know but we have to know if this was a termination mission by the government or the corporation. We need information.” Ruby said.
I looked at Jill. She was holding up a key card. “What you got there?” I asked.
“Let me go and I’ll tell you what door that key opens.” Betty said. Lying again.
I stared at Jill.”You know what door that key opens?”
Jill smiled. “I think I do. Let’s take a look at that old type writer again.”
