(Jake Muller X Reader, P.S. I ran out of space in the title)
(Y/N): "WE NEED HELP! PLEASE! CHRIS YOU SON OF A BITCH, HE'S DYING!"
I felt him start shaking....I couldn't deny it anymore......He was dying. I had no choice.
-4 hours earlier-
After his blood was used in the anti-virus, Jake and I were brought in as members of national security. After that, long story short, I was infected with a cross-gene, a mix between Uroboros and the C-virus. I was lucky, it melded and fused with me. It left my hair white, and eyes two different colors, and certain 'abilities'. Because there had never been anything like it, I was considered 'patient zero'. The cross-gene was studied, and.....Let's just say I have a new respect for Sherry. Now, there's been ANOTHER outbreak, similar to the virus I carry .
We were sent on a mission with the BSAA and were on a chopper, headed to the heart of the outbreak. This one was different though. Instead of just making people mutants, or enhancing human abilities, the ones infected were able to meld with the other virus variants. Because of that, we're assuming that it's made up of a number of past viruses. The blades and motor of the chopper were almost deafening.
(Y/N): "HEY, Capt. What exactly IS the plan here?"
Chris: "We send you two in, scout out the area, and we go from there. We got intel that there are a lot of heavy hitters down there, watch your back."
Jake rolled his eyes. Chris had always annoyed him, not as much as Piers but not the point. The light above us turned red and started flashing, signaling that we were at the drop-point.
As soon as we landed, I started getting bad flashbacks. It was an abandoned building, looked like a literal bomb went off in the place. Crumbled walls, cracking ceilings, exposed support beams. Every inch of that place.....Reminded me of Edonia......Of losing Jake.
(Y/N): "Jesus Christ."
My eyes started burning, like I was gonna cry. I snapped out of it when the comm clicked on.
Chris: "What's it look like in there?"
(Y/N): "Fill 'em in."
Jake: "You got a mouth, you do it."
(Y/N): "Ass....Chris, it looks pretty bad in here. I've never seen anything like these things."
Chris: "How many of the new ones?"
(Y/N): "That's the thing, I can't tell."
Chris: "What do you mean you can't tell?"
(Y/N): "I MEAN, I can make out which have the C-virus, Uroboros, Plagas, even some with strains of the original virus. I don't know which might be the new kid or just infected with the original strains."
I screwed the silencer onto the end of my thermal rifle, picking up and throwing a stray brick.
Jake: "ARE YOU FUCKING INSANE?!?"
God I hate it when he whisper-yells......Especially when it's directed at me.
(Y/N): "Will you get off my ass? Just trust me. When I say go, follow my lead."
I picked up another brick, throwing it as hard as and as far as I could. As soon as the ones closest to us started heading towards the sound came from.
(Y/N): "Now, now, MOVE!"
He followed me into what was left of a room. But I froze when my foot brushed against a dud hand grenade. What I saw next....Was something I pray I'll never see again as long as I live. I quickly figured out which ones were the new kind. I'm never gonna be able to get the sounds out of my head....The sounds of the bones, muscles, flesh, all stretching to adapt between the shift in the viruses.
(Y/N): "Holy fuck. I-.....I can't believe what I'm seeing."
I had to put a hand over my mouth to keep myself from throwing up.
Chris: "Keep it together, take out what you can."
Jake: "C'mon, you got this. I'm right here when you need me."
(Y/N): "Why are WE the ones doing this again? You have other snipers."
Chris: "You're the best sniper we've got."
(Y/N): "What about Piers?"
Chris: "On a mission of his own."
(Y/N): "Well, shit. OK, OK, get it outta your head."
Jake: "Get what outta your head?"
(Y/N): "Look around, this doesn't remind you of anything? Blown-up building, dud grenades? Fuckin, Edonia ring a bell?"
Jake: "Christ almighty."
(Y/N): "I want you to take a backseat on this one."
Jake: "Like hell, you're not going in there alone."
(Y/N): "Jake, listen to me. What happened in Edonia changed my life, for better AND worse. But I can't let the 'worse' keep controlling me. Please....Trust me. Let me do this. IF it gets bad enough, THEN cover me."
Jake: "I'M NOT LOSING YOU AGAIN!"
Bullets started flying.
I loaded up my sniper rifle when I saw a red dot on the side of Jake's head.
(Y/N): "GET DOWN!"
I jumped and tackled him to the ground, nearly taking the bullet myself.
Jake: "Holy shit."
(Y/N): "Stay here. I got this."
I felt him grab my wrist and pull me back down....They just kept firing!
Jake: "Are you insane? You're not going out there alone. Let me get what I can."
I was going to answer until there was the sound of something hard and metal landing on the ground. It triggered a flashback, and it felt like time stopped.
(Y/N): "C'mon, I can get you out of here."
He put a hand on my face.
Jake: "Listen to me. Alex was right behind me, he's not far from here. There were a couple snipers, he stuck around to take 'em out. He'll help me get out. So please, go....For me."
I put my hand over his and nodded. I leaned in and kissed him. something felt off. That kiss. It felt like 'goodbye'. I had a small golden ring on my right middle finger. I slipped it off and opened his hand.
(Y/N): "Bring that back to me, OK? I trust you, but I know you keep your promises. So you bring that back OK?"
There a painful look that flashed across his face.
Jake: "OK. I promise I'll get it back to you."
(Y/N): "......I love you."
Jake: "I love you too. Go ahead, I'm right behind you."
-End of flashback-
I picked her up, and ran faster then I ever have, getting behind cover just as the grenade went off.
Jake: "Babe....Babe, snap out of it. I'm right here."
I tried shaking her but she still wouldn't wake up, it was like her mind went somewhere else. I put my hand on the back of her head and kissed her forehead.
Jake: "Stay here, I'll be right back."
I picked up her sniper rifle and ran out, firing at anything I could get a clear shot on. Bullets grazed me, but I've been through worse. One of them had a knife, and almost opened my scar back up.
I shook my head, clearing the fog in my mind. I looked around and panicked when I didn't see Jake near me.
I peeked my head over the edge of the broken wall and saw him stop to turn and look at me.
(Y/N): "JAKE, BEHIND YOU!"
He didn't turn in time and a J'avo jammed a knife into his leg. I heard him scream and felt an insane rush of adrenaline hit me. I threw....I don't know how many flash grenades, and ran to him. The cross-gene had enhanced my strength, and I lifted him onto his feet like it was nothing. I managed to get him into, what looked like an office. I tipped a bookcase onto it's side and blocked the door. I looked back at Jake and saw blood gushing from his leg.
(Y/N): "Shit....SHIT! Uh, OK, um.......I don't know what to do. I-....Maybe I can stop the bleeding."
I unbuckled my belt and tightened it around his leg.
Jake: "Jesus FUCK!"
(Y/N): "I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Dammit, why didn't you just-........What do I do? Tell me what to do."
His head fell back.
(Y/N): "Jake? JAKE! Son of a BITCH!"
I clicked on my comm.
(Y/N): "Medic, MEDIC! Soldier down!"
Chris: "What's going on?"
(Y/N): "It's Jake, he's hurt, BAD, I need a med team here, FAST!"
Chris: "What about the virus?"
(Y/N): "Are you fuckin kidding me? Screw the virus, get us the fuck out of here!"
Chris: "Alright, sending a rescue chopper your way."
(Y/N): "Rescue chopper? You fuckin left us to do your job FOR you?"
I yanked my earpiece out and threw it. I pulled Jake into my lap, holding up his head.
(Y/N): "OK, just hang on, help's coming."
I waited for what felt like ever, constantly making sure he still had a pulse.
(Y/N): "C'mon I know you, you're stronger than this."
I ran my fingers over the scar on his face.
(Y/N): "I remember when you got this scar. I thought we were done for....But we were tougher than that. YOU, were tougher than that. You still are. Just hang on a little longer."
I heard explosions and machine guns getting closer and closer to the door.
(Y/N): "Oh shit."
I put my hand on his neck, checking his pulse.
(Y/N): "Oh shit. Shit shit SHIT! OK, Jake, baby, I need you to wake up. C'mon, your heart is slowing down, wake up!"
I didn't know what else to do. I picked my comm.
(Y/N): "WE NEED HELP! PLEASE! CHRIS YOU SON OF A BITCH, HE'S DYING!""
I felt him start shaking....I couldn't deny it anymore......He was dying. I had no choice. I pulled a syringe out of my med-pack and filled it with my blood. Ever since I was infected with the cross-gene, my blood had turned from red to jet black. I put my face against his.
(Y/N): "I'm sorry, but this is gonna hurt like a bitch. Trust me I know. But I'm not losing you. Not today, and sure as hell not like this."
I put my forehead his and pulled up his sleeve.
(Y/N): "Hang on tight, I got you."
I pressed my lips to his cheek as I pushed down the plunger. After a few seconds, I saw dark veins spread from the injection. But then, his heart stopped and I watched the color drain from his face. I shook him before dropping my head and sobbing into his chest.
(Y/N): "Please....Please don't leave me. Not today......Please, not like this."
It was the funniest thing...I could swear I heard a heartbeat. I sniffled and took a few deep breaths, heart pounding like I'd just run a marathon.
The veins slowly spread to his face and ended at his eyes. They shot open, slowly turning all black. His breathing was so fast I thought he was gonna pass out.
He shot upright, onto his feet and started screaming. I got to my feet and put my arms around him. He was alive, but it killed me to see him in pain like this. I remember how it hurt. It feels like you're being turned inside out.
Jake: "(Y/N), HELP ME!"
(Y/N): "I know...I know it hurts. But you can fight it, I'm right here."
Jake: "It feels like I'm gonna die!"
After a few seconds, I everything went black. Until I saw a faint, red glow a few feet away.
Voice: "I told you.....I'll always be there."
Jake: "NO! You son of a bitch, I killed you myself!"
Wesker: "You CAN'T kill me."
The glow faded.
Wesker: "No matter what you do, I'll always be a part of you."
Right behind me.....I turned to punch the bastard but my hand went through him like was made of smoke.
Wesker: "You killed for your own personal gain and didn't give a damn about what hell you caused."
It felt like my blood was boiling.
Jake: "You son of a BITCH!"
He finally got close enough, but it felt like my feet were glued to the spot. I just got angrier as his face slowly turned into Alex. Someone I knew for years, and had to watch die on the ground in front of me.
Alex: "You just sat there. You let me bleed out on the cold, hard concrete. Why? Why Jake? Because you know I'm better than you? Because I always HAVE been? Is that why? Or MAYBE, just maybe, you just thought you were too good to bother keeping me around. You got that little cutie around, why bother with me anymore, right? Although, personally, I would've GLADLY given her certain.....'Things' you didn't. If you catch my drift."
(Y/N): "C'mon, I know exactly how much fight you've got in you, this is nothing! I got you."
She sounded so distant, like she was a mile away.
Alex: "Huh, you managed to keep your hooks in her. Well, nobody's perfect."
He pushed me back against a wall I didn't know was there, grabbing my chin so hard it felt like my jaw was gonna break. he pulled out a pocket knife.
Alex: "Not even you."
It hurt more than I remember when he opened my scar again.
I heard the doors downstairs breaking down.
(Y/N): "Jesus, about time!"
I ran over and put a remote bomb by the bookcase.
(Y/N): "Hang on tight."
I pushed the button and the explosion was almost deafening.
I heard a loud bang, almost like an explosion.
Jake: "Fuck you."
Alex: "Excuse me?"
I grabbed his wrist and looked him dead in the eyes.
Jake: "I said, 'fuck you'. This is all bullshit. Alex would never say, or do, any of this. I'm sorry for what happened, but I couldn't have changed anything. I lost everything that day, including you....But I can't, and won't, go the rest of my life with that guilt. It's something I had NO control over....And I'm sorry."
He put his head down and looked back up, a small smile on his face. After a few seconds, his face went blank and shifted back into Wesker.
Wesker: "And me? You think you're better than me? You're just like me."
I pulled out my handgun and put it to his forehead.
Wesker: "Go ahead....Prove me right."
I almost did. I wanted to pull that trigger so bad. But instead I dropped the gun.
Jake: "No. I'm nothing like you. My mother raised me better than that. Not that you'd know. So no, I'm not shooting you. Not again."
He stepped back and I watched as he faded away into nothing. I looked up, closed my eyes and heard (Y/N)'s voice clear as day. I felt myself drop to the ground. I sat up, felt like I'd been drugged.
Jake: "Jesus, my whole body hurts."
I looked and saw (Y/N) shaking her head. Guess that WAS an explosion.
Jake: "Why are you yelling?"
She pointed to her ears.
(Y/N): "REMOTE BOMB."
Jake: "But you heard THAT."
I got to my feet as she walked up and gave me quick kiss.
Of course. She's a badass, she's a fighter.....But in the best way she's also crazy as hell. She shook her head again.
(Y/N): "SAY SOMETHIN'."
(Y/N): "OK, it's going away."
Jake: "Shit, what the hell hit me?"
(Y/N): "A huge dose of the cross-gene."
I heard voices in the distance.
Chris: "TOP FLOOR, HURRY!"
I heard Chris coming and what sounded like a full med-team.
Jake: "about fuckin time."
(Y/N): "No shit."
Chris: "Looks you handled things here."
I walked up and slapped him as hard as I could.
(Y/N): "You ASSHOLE! WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU?!?"
Jake: "Easy, babe."
(Y/N): "NO, you could've DIED!"
Jake: "And I didn't."
(Y/N): "Do you know what I had to do to keep him alive? Now, THANKS TO YOU, he has the cross-gene in his system, that's never gonna go away."
Chris: "Look, I'm sorry, I didn't think it would be that much of a-"
(Y/N): "Save your bullshit."
Jake came up behind me and put an arm around me.
(Y/N): "C'mon, let's get you to that med team. Can't hurt to get you looked at."
I walked past Chris, intentionally shoving his shoulder with mine. We were halfway down the stairs...
Jake: "Just so you know, that was quite possibly the sexiest thing you've ever done."
I managed a smile, leaning up to kiss his cheek.
(Y/N): "Glad you thought so."
Jake: "And, uh, one more thing."
(Y/N): "Oh, yeah?"
He leaned in close to my ear.
Jake: "Yeah, uh, you're all mine when we get home."
