Resident Evil: Shane’s Story by TheOracleDragon
Two hours later…
fumbled to the entrance groaning soon leaning against his legs, resting
his hands above his knees while Wesker walked over holding his broken
sunglasses in one hand and looked at Shane with a mild expression of
shitty fuck,” Shane said rubbing his butt. “Why the hell did you have
to get so rough with me, I won’t be able to sit for days!” He growled
glaring at Wesker who glared back at him.
smirked, “Maybe next time you’ll be more respectful of other people’s
property.” He said as he looked at the broken sunglasses in his hand
before looking back at Shane, “Also you should be more mindful of your
surroundings. It shouldn’t have been that easy for me to sneak up on
you,” Shane grumbled and Wesker ignored it and kept speaking, “Don’t
worry though, with my help you’ll not be taken unawares again… at least
not as easily.”
shook his head, “How would you like it if I attacked you from behind?”
Shane inhaled through his nose deeply and then spit a wad of phlegm at
Wesker’s feet before rubbing his bottom again. “Hurts like hell.”
looked down at the blob of spit that missed his boot and then looked up
at Shane in disgust, “Your constant complaining is becoming highly
tiresome, boy.” Wesker tossed his broken sunglasses into a nearby trash
bin and his eyes flashed red for a second before he closed them tight to
pinch his thumb and forefinger on the bridge of his nose. Without open
his eyes Wesker continued speaking, “Do you honestly expect me to
believe that a smack on your bottom is that painful considering all the
other things you’ve been through? Really Shane, your childish attempts
at sympathy and attention are laughable at this point.” Wesker opened
his eyes to see Shane whipping the middle finger at him. Wesker’s eyes
glowed red for a second startling Shane, making him back up startled
before his anger returned.
just glared at Wesker bitterly before looking away as he found a bench
and sat down carefully, he wasn’t expecting to be kicked in the ass. He
and Wesker had even laid down padding on the floor so neither of them
would get hurt trying to flip the other in arm locks, course, Shane
lost. He was good with wrestling since he done it a lot in high school
cause of the bullies and even the orderlies, but Wesker had him in
positions he swore would kill. A few times it almost felt like his spine
would snap in half or his leg would break, but it was with a swift move
that he was able to break Wesker’s sunglasses, but that resulted in a
firm boot kick right up on his ass.
think for your sake I’ll conclude your training for today. You’re not
in the proper mindset to learn and I would hate to see you get hurt
again because of your lack of discipline.” Wesker turned around walking
toward his coat when he heard Shane’s feet padding towards him swiftly.
Wesker let Shane tackle him to the floor mats. He knew the boy needed to
learn patience and the ability to control his anger and maybe this was
the only way he would learn. Still, Shane was hurt and he still felt the
need to prove himself and Wesker took small comfort in that.
ease, Wesker elbowed Shane’s side making his rib cage flex causing a
sharp grunt of pain to escape his mouth before Wesker hit him again in
the same spot making Shane gasp for air from the pain. Before he could
react Wesker flipped Shane off his back and slammed him flat onto the
mats. Shane tried to breathe but Wesker’s full weight was on top of his
stomach as he squatted with his knee pressing into Shane’s gut. Wesker
was angry and was pointing his finger an inch from Shane’s wide eyes
which made all the anger in him quickly turn to fear.
spoke with a coldness that sent a shiver up Shane’s spine, “I want you
to understand something boy. When I say the something is over, it… is…
OVER! If you want to act like a petulant child I will treat you like one
and have you sent back to the asylum. Then you can spend all day and
night whining to the lunatics, doctors, and guards about how unfair your
life is and cries about every little ache and pain.” Shane was silent
as Wesker stared at him a second before standing up again, grabbed his
jacket and slipped it on as he said, “You have a choice to make Shane.
Grow up and be the man I know you can be or remain an ignorant child
locked in a cage of your own making.”
left the room leaving Shane alone with his thoughts. It hurt to admit
it but Wesker was right. He had been overreacting to things more and
more and it was time for him to stop acting out and get a better hold on
Day 34 - St. Jeremy’s Hospital - 2 Years after Raccoon City
was silent in the open room; Shane could only sit there on the padding
and think. The amount of time he had to be in there annoyed him but it
was the only time he can actually do anything. Normally he would sit and
think or run around, but this time he was aiming for new heights. The
catwalk, the balcony that was around the room. He had to think hard but
he knew it would be impossible to reach it but that didn’t mean he
stood at a good height for himself, of five feet and ten inches and
still growing, if he was fast enough and timed it just right, he just
might be able to slightly run up the wall and jump to the catwalk.
Slowly he stood up and moved to the back of the room, the guard watched
him closely shifting the rifle he had carefully knowing Shane was going
to do something but he didn’t know what until he watched Shane run as
fast as he could to the other end trying to run up the wall only to slip
and fall onto his back hard onto the padding making the guard laughed
at the boy’s feeble attempt.
cursed rolling onto his side before slowly getting up, he knew that was
the dumbest thing he had ever done, he never tried running up anything
before and now had a new objective. Learning how to do it. The many
times he saw boys and men doing it for fun, he knew he should have
started it when he was younger but he was too occupied with Track and
Field to even think of doing it. But now, it was all gone.
practicing.” He told himself brushing himself off hearing the guard
chuckling making him run to the other end to try again and this time he
crashing into the padding knocking him down hard onto his back. “Shut
up!” He snapped hearing the guard laughing loudly now as Shane got up
and ran again to the other end managing to get up the all two steps
before dropping down.
was never able to reach it before they came back; he kept away from
them managing to knock one down till a sharp pain flared on his back
causing him to drop instantly holding where the bag was shot at him. It
stung a thousand times worse than a big sting and he was fighting hard
against the pain but he could not stop his shoulder from becoming numb.
The orderlies were on him in a flash, one applying pressure to where he
was hit making him struggle in vain to get away but it was pointless, he
cursed and gave up. This was a failure and he wasn’t going to do
anything as they pulled him out and into the hallway.
was a few minutes till Shane was ordered to strip down to shower, he
hated this and did what he was told standing in the shower looking at
the other patients before shaking his head. Once his pants went down he
caught sight of the orderlies raising brows and a few shaking their
heads as Shane thought, “...Fucking assholes.” Shane grumbled thinking
of those that tormented him. “I’m going to hurt them so much.” He
continued taking his shirt off snatching his soap bar and walked over to
the showerhead allowing the hot water to rush over him, but he gasped
feeling it wasn’t hot but cold. Shane screamed, “Jackasses!” and he then
covered his mouth as an orderly approached making him back up under the
talking was allowed in the shower, he learned that last week after
yelling at an orderly that was hitting another patient, in the process,
he was smack hard across the face and then hit on the back by a
nightstick. He sighed as the warm water finally fell onto his skin
allowing him to wash up; planning was all he could do now.
Two days later…
sighed and checked his watch while sitting in the passenger seat of the
Humvee. It had been two days of missed training for Shane but Wesker’s
plans came first. He looked out of the window up at the sky and was glad
the storm had died out yesterday and the ground seemed to already be
parched and baked from the blazing sun once again.
his strength and enhanced stamina, Wesker was weary from the constant
running around he had to do lately and he just wanted to stay on base
today and relax for a while before resuming Shane’s training.
to his slave Jill he didn’t need to keep tabs on the next few shipments
coming in. Excella was proving to be an excellent handler for Jill and
she actually seemed to take pleasure in ordering around someone she
didn’t have to pay to work for her. As the truck approached the base
Wesker smiled tightly and thought of Shane again. He was still surprised
he could feel this sort of bond with another human being considering he
despised most everyone else he came into contact with.
entering the front gate, Wesker could see everything was still in
perfect working order. As they passed the motor pool Wesker saw Craig
still trying to get the broken Humvee to work properly. The vehicle was
already halfway out of the garage. The Humvee rumbled to life for a
split second before black smoke started billowing out of the engine
block. Wesker frowned as he watched Craig punch the steering wheel
setting off the airbag in the truck. Two men came running to Craig’s aid
as Wesker’s Humvee slowly rolled by.
his head forward Wesker spotted Shane running out from the far left
corner of the building covered in sweat from exercising. Shane ran
towards a tree near the edge of the building and sat down under the
shade of the leafy branches.
panted and wiped his forehead before taking a deep breath through his
nose and grabbed the water bottle in his pocket. He sighed as he opened
the bottle. After taking a quick drink he saw a few vehicles coming in
as he listened to the music pumping through his earphones. The iPod
strapped to Shane’s bicep was something of a gift from Craig who got him
the tiny player with music already uploaded to it.
watched the vehicles come to a stop near the motor pool but didn’t see
who got out since sweat dripped into his eyes making them sting. He
cursed wiping the sweat from his eyes and off his head just as he
noticed the doctor coming out of the main building. A small smile
appeared on Shane’s face when he hurried over to get his pills and the
shot. The fact he now looked forward to his meds now made Shane chuckle
inside considering how much he fought against them in the past.
he was medicated, Shane felt better and his energy was back within
minutes. Thanking the doctor, Shane started to jog again with a smile on
his face while listening to the hard rock song coming through his
headphones. The sunshine hitting his skin felt amazing and every time he
would come out from under a tree, the sunglasses enabled him to adjust
immediately to the harsh light. Somehow they seemed to automatically
tint and adjust to the light no matter how bright or dim.
female vendor waved and called his name as Shane jogged towards her.
She smiled and held up a full bottle waving for him to take it as he
ran. Shane had become friends with her easily since he did good business
with her but the verbal block was still there but he didn’t care. He
snatched the bottle as he ran by quickly, like the marathon runners he
had seen on TV. The vendor chuckled as he jogged backward and waved at
her before stuffing the bottle into a leg pocket, turned around and
continued his jog. As much as he hated to admit it, he was starting to
like it here, he was getting used to the guards he saw all the time and
was planning something fun for them.
slowed to a walk as he passed the fighting ring and waved at JJ who was
inside the ring, back in action again. When JJ waved back his opponent,
a guard Shane had seen around the compound, tried to land a cheap shot
on JJ as he was momentarily distracted. JJ dodged and with a quick
one-two combination knocked the cocky guard to the mat.
chuckle and went back into a full jog before running as fast as he
could and jumped up grabbing a hanging wall pipe and swung around
quickly before letting go and started jogging again. Shane let out a
laugh and clapped his hands together to wipe the dust from the pipe from
was jogging for a few more minutes before something in his peripheral
vision made him turn and suddenly Wesker was jogging next to him. He was
still wearing his trademark sunglasses but he was also wearing a black
tank top, black shorts and black sneakers with gray socks. Shane had a
small smile creep across his face seeing Wesker dressed like a normal
human being rather than the ever-present leather jumpsuit and trench
coat he always seemed to sport no matter how unbearably hot it got.
was still slightly angry at Wesker but pushed those feelings aside, he
knew better than to dwell on them. Wesker kept pace easily with Shane as
they jogged. Shane felt a little cocky and picked his pace up and
Wesker kept up with him easily until Shane took off in a full run
grinning with Wesker running after him. Wesker smiled inwardly and let
Shane run ahead of him. Obviously, the boy wanted to outdo the old man
and was showing off.
was walking across the compound when she stopped at the garage, she
felt better than she did a few days ago and she felt she was ready for
another round with Shane if they could sneak it in. Excella smiled
adjusting her sunglasses as she noticed Shane and Wesker jogging
together. She leaned against the building and admired the two men as
they ran. The similarities between Wesker and Shane were striking
sometimes and she had to admit to herself she had fantasized what it
might be like to be with both of them at the same time but she knew
better than to even attempt to try and make that happen.
she had to smile watching Wesker let the young man run ahead of him. It
was good for Shane to feel more confident and she knew that this was
the best thing for Wesker as well. He had been running his ass off
making sure everything was in order after the last botched shipment and
it was nice seeing Wesker relax for a change. It really was the best
thing for him, even if he was in charge, he still needed time to himself
to catch up on things at the base, rest and relax for a while before
the operation went into full swing.
giggled slightly as she watched Shane turn around jogging backward to
taunt Wesker who simply smirked at him and continued his steady pace.
could see the two were becoming closer and it made her happy to see
Wesker take on the father role Shane seemed to desperately need and the
two were bonding better every day. It was through this growing bond that
Shane had found hope again and even Wesker’s grim demeanor had given
way slightly to something lighter. More akin to pride and perhaps hope
when he saw that Shane was the next generation and he would have a
bright future and perhaps a long-lasting legacy if everything went
according to plan.
was going to be a brave new world and Wesker and his son would stand
side by side to usher humanity into it whether they wanted to go or not.
Excella got goosebumps when she thought of all the power and glory that
was broken out of her fantasy by a loud clanging sound and Craig
screaming an obscenity in German. When she looked over he had his dirty
finger in his mouth while his other hand fanned the smoke billowing out
of the engine of the ever broken Humvee.
her sunglasses down the bridge of her nose she spoke with little
concern in her voice, “Are you having some trouble?” Craig looked at her
with a look of genuine frustration etched on his face as he pulled his
finger out and spoke.
digging out an arm and a leg, this Humvee should have been running
smoothly but something keeps stalling it when the engine starts to
run....” He said looking at the smoldering engine block. At first,
Excella thought Craig was using a euphemism and not being literal until
she spotted the severed limbs half wrapped in bloody, oily rags on the
ground near the toolbox.
pushed her glasses back up her nose making a sour face at the grisly
remnants and looked back at Shane and Wesker who was still jogging.
finally noticed what Excella was looking at and smiled, “Shane has been
doing pretty well since he was allowed outside. I think the fresh air
is good for the boy.” Excella seemed to not hear Craig and kept watching
the duo jog towards the far end of the compound. Craig shrugged and
went back to examining the engine while Excella pulled her phone out of
her purse and began watching the security feed on the cameras where
Shane and Wesker jogged.
smiled and laughed when Shane playfully tried to squirt Wesker with
water from his bottle and Albert easily dodged the liquid and grabbed
Shane in a headlock and ruffled his hair with a playful noogie. She had
never seen this side of Albert before and she had to admit it was nice
seeing him not act like a hard ass and be human for once.
smiled at seeing the two getting along like father and son and was
happy to see Wesker’s defenses against the boy weakening. Still, she
knew if she brought it up he would deny it and make it seem like it was
all part of some grand plan. But Excella knew it was bullshit. This was a
stage in Wesker's life that gave him a chance to see the future of the
human race become even more stronger with his own flesh and blood at his
side following his orders.
held Shane in a headlock and was giving him a playful noogie when he
said, “If you don’t behave yourself I won’t take you on my run outside
the compound today.”
stopped struggling and said, “Are you serious?” Wesker left him go and
simply gestured that they continue their jog around the compound. Wesker
didn’t wait for a response and simply jogged and Shane put his dangling
earphones inside the iPod armband he was wearing and followed as they
took a path between two of the buildings and headed towards a guarded
gateway near the rear of the compound.
talked with ease while he jogged, not even sounding out of breath, “I
noticed you jogging when I came in from my… business trip. You look like
you might be going a little stir crazy so I think it’s time you saw
something other than the same four walls of the compound.” Shane was
excited and he kept pace with Wesker and he continued to speak, “I think
you’ll find the scenery to be quite relaxing.” Wesker nodded at the
guards and they opened the gate quickly not interrupting Wesker’s steady
pace whileShane followed alongside him. The guards closed the gate once
the duo made their way on an old dirt road. High brush and wild grass
waved in a slight breeze as they got farther away from the compound.
Wesker broke the silence, “I saw how you were leaping about the place
during your jog. I take it your ankle is feeling better?”
smiled, “Yeah it feels pretty good. I’ve been practicing these past two
days leaping off of catwalks and vaulting over the handrails.” Shane
state once they passed under a tree. “Almost twisted my ankle jumping
over the one railing, I didn’t realize how far the drop was.” He
chuckled getting a drink of water from the half-empty bottle he had in
was sweating but he kept jogging and didn’t slack in his pace as he
spoke, “You need to be more mindful of your surroundings Shane. If you
had landed wrong and snapped your ankle it would have put a serious
delay on your training. I want you to stop taking foolish risks like
that. Your training is entering a much more advanced stage soon and you
will need all the strength you have to do it.”
was curious what kind of training Wesker had in mind was but then he
noticed they were coming up to another large tree and Wesker jogged off
the dirt road and stopped beneath the shady tree. Wesker fixed his hair
with his hands, feeling the sweat coming down his face as he leaned with
his back against the gnarled wooden trunk. Shane jogged up next to him
and stopped noticing Wesker looked tired and for the life of him, he had
never seen him look so… weary. Shane offered him his water but Wesker
waved it away with his hand, “No, I’m fine. Just didn’t realize how…
tired I was.”
smiled and patted Wesker lightly on the shoulder noticing the man
tensed up slightly when he was touched, “Hey, it’s okay man. I mean you
just got back from a long trip, if you’re really that tired we should
head back. We can come out here again tomorrow.”
looked at Shane and noticed the boy was actually showing concern and
not being a wise ass. Wesker smiled tightly and nodded, “Perhaps you’re
right. It has been a trying week, to say the least. Let’s head back.”
smiled as he took another swig of water and looked up into the sky,
“Besides, the way I figure it we have just enough daylight left for a
game of baseball.”
raised a brow hearing that. “…Baseball?” Shane smiled and started
jogging away and despite his lack of energy Wesker caught up with him
fairly quickly, “What do you mean baseball?” He asked as Shane jogged
,you know that big empty spot on the northern corner of the compound?
It’s the only section not paved so it would be pretty easy to get a game
of baseball going there.”
Wesker realized what Shane meant, “That’s the helicopter landing zone.”
smiled, “That’s right, it’s large enough for the baseball game I have
in mind, besides, it’ll give the guards something to do. Plus it’ll keep
them in shape.” He chuckled wiping his forehead on their way towards
the compound in a slow jog.
was silent until they were in sight of the rear gate which started to
open upon their approached. “Fine, you can play your game. Consider it
an exercise in hand/eye coordination.”
laughed, “I have no issue with that. Besides, I’ve been doing practice
fighting remember?” He asked chuckling. “Oh, I saw JJ and you were
totally right about his arm.” Shane and Wesker stopped for a minute
inside the compound before Shane clapped his hands together and said,
“Let’s get the game started, Captain.” He said sprinting away to gather
the men for the game.
watched him leave and flashed back for a second to his former life as
the Captain of the Raccoon City S.T.A.R.S. team. He hadn’t been called
that for years and the memories of that accursed team and how they,
especially Chris Redfield, had ruined everything. Wesker’s eyes flashed
red as he clenched his fists. The anger seemed to renew his energy as he
stalked towards the landing field in the compound.
A few minutes later…
as easy as baseball gets,” Shane said tossing a ball up and down as
Craig nodded looking at the men that were off shift and explained it to
them, however many already knew about the game and how to play it. Shane
fixed his gaze on JJ; he was going to be the umpire. Shane nodded at JJ
and tossed him the ball and yelled, “This should be pretty fun so let’s
get this game rolling before the sun goes down.”
smiled, “Don’t worry if we go long the field is well lit at night.” He
said chuckling while stroking his goatee before telling the guards to
get ready. “Whose team is going first?” He asked looking at Shane who
don’t know, my team, maybe?” He asked as Wesker nodded his head.
“Cool,” Shane said tossing him the baseball. “Don’t pitch too hard,
okay?” Wesker nodded again even though he didn’t like the idea but he
was doing it for Shane. “Okay, time get to bat!” He said running over to
the bats and Wesker headed out to the mark stood in for the pitching
mound and waited. First at bat was one of the guard’s that worked at the
gate. “Hit a good one!” Shane shouted and JJ called the game to start.
was enjoying watching the game, so far Shane’s team was winning by one
point and Wesker was growling at his team to get them hitting and
scoring more points while Shane was having a blast with his team
encouraging them to keep going. Two different leaders with two different
methods. The past and the future. Father and son.
Shane shouted drawing him out of thought. “Heads up!” He shouted making
Craig grab a shield, the last few times Shane went up to bat the ball
almost hit him and he was at the scoreboard they had set up and next
thing he knew the ball hit the shield, another home run for the kid.
“Whoo!” Shane cheered running the bases before sliding into home plate.
Shane wanted to rub it in Wesker’s face that he won but he was so happy
he couldn’t think of anything better to say but, “Yeah! In your face!"
Before he could continue cheering a giant cooler of ice cold water was
suddenly poured over him making him gasp and go stiff, Wesker chuckled
nodding to the men.
your little victory celebration?” Wesker said walking over hearing the
boy gasp and hurried to wipe the ice water out of his eyes.
shivered but gave a smile, “It was worth it.” Wesker smirked and walked
past Shane and grabbed a towel off Craig and flung it at Shane, “I
expect a rematch, boy.”
Shane laughed, “You got it, old man.”
Day 167 - St. Jeremy’s Hospital - 2 Years after Raccoon City
feel like I’m going insane…” Shane said to himself in a whisper looking
at the ceiling rubbing his chest as he kept thinking of Heather before
the events of Raccoon City, how they would hang out and make out. The
sweet tasting strawberry gloss on her lips, her soft skin on her body
against his. He soon moaned before looking at the camera, he needed to
be alone but he couldn’t with them watching. “Always watching..” He
grumbled getting off the bed and slid under it, he managed to tuck a few
toilet sheets under the bed frame for such an occasion. Slipping his
pants down slightly Shane began to work himself.
knew too well about what happened last time he was caught under the bed
and knew he had to hurry with his need, the last time they caught him
under there he was hit so hard he couldn’t breathe right for the longest
time. He had to be quick and worked himself fast counting the seconds
and imagining Heather working her magic on him. “Heather…oh, I loved you
so much.” He whispered thinking about her and soon lost track of time.
He gasped hearing the glass door open and he quickly pulled his pants up
just as someone grabbed his arm. “Shit! Stop! I didn’t do anything!”
His shouts were ignored when the nightstick was slammed into his gut
causing him to crumble instantly, his face flushed red feeling all the
air expelled from his lungs, the fight to breathe was on. A firm kick to
his back forced him to cry out in pain, the precious air leaving his
strained lungs once more. The nurse came over in a rush snapping at the
orderlies after they left Shane crippled on the floor. She placed his
medicine on his bed and tended to him, but he didn’t care and wanted to
smack her but he was hurting too much.
He wanted to die.
hate that place…” Shane said sitting on the end of the bed shaking his
head. “Always abused…always tormented…” He lowered his head feeling
Wesker patting him on the shoulder. He was sitting on the end of the bed
with him still in his jogging attire. “But that room…God…that was the
worst of it all.”
is why we’re trying to help you remember what happened there, so we can
stop these men from harming you again,” Wesker said as Shane looked at
him. “If you are able to remember, these men will pay dearly for what
they did to you.” He said as Shane nodded. “Lie down and relax, it will
be painful to remember but it’s the only way, Shane.” He told as Shane
took a breath and scooted back before laying down on his bed closing his
eyes. “Listen to my voice….” Wesker said standing up looking at him.
“You will breath slow and deeply…” He said as Shane did so. “…try and
not think of anything and listen to my voice, think on my voice,” Wesker
said moving while gesturing to Excella in the mirror room who turned
the subliminal audio on.
Day Unknown - St. Jeremy’s Hospital - Before Wesker’s Visit
stretched out on his bed and yawned before scratching his chest, he
felt so sleepy and loved it that he was. It meant he was going to be
able to sleep in more so the doctors could leave him alone. These small
blessings, Shane always took them and chuckled before covering his face
with his arm. A small sigh escaped him and before he could sleep a sharp
tap on the glass door awoke him from his light dozing which sent a
shock through his body as he removed his arm seeing the glass sliding
into the wall. There were two orderlies, both a bit buffed and different
from what he remembered of those he was used to.
up.” One said in a thick Russian accent making Shane sit up slightly
rubbing his face before yawning again trying to understand what was
going on. “Get up now!” The man snapped making Shane get up instantly
before being grabbed harshly and pinned against the wall, he struggled
slightly and cursed lowly as the one gripped his left arm firmly making
the healing cuts ache. “Hold still.” The Russian growled as Shane looked
at him seeing the tattoo, the tattoo that would never leave his mind as
he felt the needle stuck into his arm. “He’s sedated.” The man said as
Shane felt his body slipping into the darkness.
awoke slowly as his ears filled with the sounds of squeaky gurney
wheels and that of the cries and screams of those he was housed with.
His eyes fixed on the passing ceiling tiles and then the dimming lights
as he saw someone to his right, that man with the tattoo.
waking up.” Said the other which drew Shane’s weak attention to his
left seeing the other wearing a surgeons mask. “Should we sedate him
he’ll pass out shortly.” Said the Russian as Shane looked forward
seeing his body was strapped down on the gurney, they were wheeling him
down a long half-lit corridor, he could only see a few doors and a
blinking red sphere on the one wall before darkness took his sight once
again causing his body to fall limp.
door on the left slowly opened with a hum as the two-wheeled Shane
inside, they left him lay there for a long while taking tissue samples
from his left arm while the other arm was having blood sucked out into
to think this is his kid.” Said the one with the mask as he looked at
his Russian comrade for a moment who only grunted. “How did Nikolai
has access to strict files.” The Russian replied looking at Shane
before grabbing the file on a rolling table and opened it looking at
Shane’s photo, he looked depressed in the photo and the Russian chuckled
before looking at Shane again as he laid the file down. “Dementia,
many mental issues, but how and why he developed them.” The second said
looking at Shane breathing slowly. “He’s the perfect human being, the
utopian, a god, but he has these issues.”
did this to him to keep him under control.” The Russian said taking off
the straps on Shane’s body. “We need to get him prepped, Nikolai will
be coming shortly.” He said pulling Shane’s pants down carefully so to
not snag the boy’s boxer shorts.
sure are we that he doesn’t know?” The other asked taking Shane’s shirt
off gently keeping a firm hand under Shane’s head. “How do we know that
Mathers is keeping his word to keep this under wraps?”
Mathers is the best hacker we have.” The Russian said looking at the
other as he started to strap Shane back down. “Wesker is a fool, he
won’t see it happening. By the time he figures any of this out, it’ll
already be too late, he’ll be dead or we have the samples, hell, even
both.” He said chuckling. “And the only way to get close is to use flesh
“But after that is done with, what becomes of the boy if he survives?”
Russian shrugged, “I don’t know, he’ll possibly use him as a new Tyrant
or something. He can control the plaga so no worries.” He said looking
Shane over before chuckling. “I can’t wait for this to come full bloom.”
Shane whispered as he twitched, Wesker watched carefully while standing
close to a vent that sent a cool breeze up his body keeping him cool
since he was still sweating from the run. He could only watch Shane
listening to what the boy remembered, a new name. Mathers. He needed to
look for this man and get him to talk.
leaned back on the plush chair in the mirror room as Shane twitched
more, she hated seeing him hurting and wanted to stop the audio but
Wesker would have her neck if she did and once again Shane screamed and
Wesker was by his side instantly holding him down as he thrashed against
the bed before finally calming down.
Shane,” Wesker said looking at him. “Breathe, slow your breathing.” He
ordered as Shane took a few deep breaths to try and relax. “You’re not
in that room, it's in your head, you’re safe, calm down.” He said as
Shane started shaking before sitting up hugging Wesker as Wesker patted
him on the back before hugging him rubbing his back. “Trust me, Shane,
you’re fine, it’s in your mind. I know it’s painful..”
they did…it will never leave me,” Shane said softly shaking. “I can
still feel it like it’s still inside me.” He said as Wesker pulled back
as Shane looked at him.
not, it’s dead.” He said tapping Shane’s chest. “We killed it, all that
left is the memories in your mind, if we can’t find out who they all
are, I will have to help you forget that room.” He said as Shane perked
at that. “You want that don’t you?” He asked as Shane nodded. “I can
take them away from you with some…treatments…but it will be painful to
don’t care, I don’t want them in my head anymore, constantly hounding
me. It’s driving me insane!” Shane said shaking his head. “Once they are
gone I can finally keep focused.”
knew that was true, whenever Shane was in a stressful situation his
mind would drift to painful memories, if he managed to block them for
the boy, he would be passing another test leading him to become a better
leader. He told Shane that he’ll fix the problem and to go to sleep,
Shane nodded as Wesker walked toward the door and left the room, Excella
was standing there as he looked at her as she made a gesture of zipped
stretched out in his new jogging outfit: a red tank top with a black
Chinese dragon on it, khaki cargo shorts with wrinkled gray gym socks
and white and red low top running sneakers. Shane jogged in place for a
moment as his shark tooth necklace bounced about before he looked at
Craig standing under the shade of a nearby tree, as early as it was, it
was already hot and sweltering making the German fan himself before
yawning as Shane soon joined him under the tree as Craig sighed.
didn’t the Humvee to work did you?” Shane asked sitting down fixing his
shoes as Craig grunted before spitting at the ground before picking his
teeth with a knife. “I guess that’s a no,” Shane said tucking the
strings into his shoes before rising as Wesker finally came over with
Excella who was talking to him. “Looks like she’s taking over again.”
Shane chuckled as Craig did the same.
worry darling, everything is under control, you need this time to rest
and well spent with Shane.” She said as Wesker fixed his sunglasses as
his eyes locked onto Shane who was fixing his own. He chuckled faintly
as Excella continued to talk about what she would be doing for him but
he only held up his hand having her fall silent as Shane walked over
you ready for the run old man?” Shane asked smiling having Wesker nod
in response, Shane looked at Wesker‘s outfit, he was wearing a
skin-tight black cross training shirt and shorts, which were all black,
with white socks and black running shoes. Shane liked it and took notice
of something about it, there was a faded and cracked S.T.A.R.S. symbol
is on the left side of his chest, when Wesker walked by him for a
moment, he saw a cracked one on his back that had a faded cracked
lettering that read: S.T.A.R.S. Special Tactics & Rescue Service.
This made Shane scratch his head before moving ahead of Wesker, he was
going to ask him later about S.T.A.R.S. again and hopefully get more
smiled lightly looking at Shane, he had changed so much since he first
talked to him, he was more friendly and more social now, the subliminal
audio and his help had changed Shane so much the past few weeks. Shane
was also showing he was becoming a leader, even if it was taking time to
do so, Wesker was smiling inside proud with their progress. “Great, I’m
all set so let’s go,” Shane said drawing Wesker out of his thoughts as
they walked to the rear gate at it opened for them. “So how far are we
a surprise,” Wesker said as they started to jog down the dirt road
making Shane look back waving as Excella returned it before he jogged up
to Wesker. “So everything good with your plans and such?” Shane asked
as they passed the tall tree they stopped under yesterday as he soon
looked at the tall dry grass that swayed gently around them, flowing
like the waves of the ocean making him smile soon seeing a few birds
flying through the air as Wesker talked to him that things were going in
order and such making Shane smile.
dirt road made turns here and there along the fields of grass, tall old
trees giving them shade and only one time did they had to slow their
pace as a few zebras were crossing the road making Shane watch them
intently for never seen a wild one up close before and chuckled wiping
his brow smiling at Wesker telling him about the time at the zoo how he
fed one in Raccoon City. Wesker told him about how he visited the zoo a
few times to investigate things, Shane found these stories interesting
and made him think of Kevin and how he would do a few chases and try to
help solve cases about the city.
bead of salty sweat glided down his brow, running smoothly down his
nose dripping off forcing him to wipe after Wesker started to pull ahead
of him. Once more they started up a hill making Shane grunt trying to
keep jogging up it, he knees started to protest with the hill and his
running but he kept going so to not lose sight of Wesker who looked back
on, Shane.” He said and Shane waved him off causing the older man to
chuckle, Shane was regretting calling him an old man but he still was
one no matter what.
jog was long and Shane was sweating madly from the heat of the sun, the
wind dancing across his sweat-soaked skin cooling him lightly as he
sighed looking at Wesker not bothered at all by the intense heat making
Shane shake his head in disbelief as his body was growing tired and he
needed to take a break but he kept jogging knowing Wesker wanting him to
push the limits course what made Shane curious was where they were
going considering they passed a few old huts, wild animals, a set of
train tracks and soon were now running through what felt like a desert
but the path they were on was obviously a road since there were signs
here and there marking it. A strong gust of wind hit the two making
Shane breath deep smelling it and it puzzled him.
It smelled salty.
pulled ahead of him again making him pant slowing down slightly feeling
his legs starting to become numb and weak from the running and soon he
smiled seeing Wesker had stopped at the next hill making him hurry to
catch up to fumble slightly resting his hands on his legs looking at the
ground panting like mad, swallowing hard while watching his sweat
dripping to the dry earth before looking up and just stared at the sight
before him as Wesker stood tall looking out at the ocean as Shane
closed his eyes taking his sunglasses off to wipe his face before
quickly putting them back on to look at the blue waves foaming as they
crashed against the shore making him speechless at the beautiful view,
this was Wesker’s surprise for him. To see the ocean for the first time.
