Why? Because I was bored. Also, to clarify, this happened during the 'Death - Doctor Malfrous' tale, which explains why Doctor Malfrous volunteered to activate the Warhead. He wouldn't have done it, don't get me wrong, but if it wasn't for his flashback, he never would've manually activated the bombs. The flashback occurs while Malfrous is running through the hallways. As he runs through the hallways of Site 40-2, he believes he is running away as a 7 year old child away from his father, as seen in his flashback. His flashback ends as he leaves the elevator into Gate A. Everything that he did when escaping the site is what he saw as his Seven year old self. Except that he wasn't crying like crazy, no. Malfrous is a manly man!...I hope.
Confusing? Too bad. Now, to the actual story...
Malfrous listened as the alarms began to blare at Site 40-2. The masked doctor suddenly felt a terrible vibe of fear as the PA System announced, "ALL NON-ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL EVACUATE THE FACILITY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WE ARE EXPERIENCING MULTIPLE EUCLID AND KETER CONTAINMENT BREACHES. I REPEAT, ALL NON-ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL EVACUATE THE FACILITY NOW."
The Flashback Edit
He was only 7 when it happened.
His father found a new job at a science lab.*
Samuel Malfrous never got to see his father much after the divorce.
This Bring Your Child To Work day made Samuel smile like he never had before.
As his father's van parked at the driveway, Samuel flew at his father, arms wrapped around him in a tight hug...it was the first one they had in years...A shame it was the last they'd ever have...
"Wow, daddy! Your job is cool!" Shouted Sam. His father smiled as he held his hand, walking down a white corridor. "Alright, folks. Time to take your children home for the night!" A voice said through a PA System. The voice had an odd, shaky tone...as if the man on the other end was frightened. "Please take your children and leave immediately. We hope you and your kids had a fun time...!" His father noticed the voice's tone and glanced at Samuel. "C'mon, Sam, it's time to get you home." He said. "Awww, but daddy, I want to see all the cool inventions you ma-" Suddenly, the lights started flashing red. The deafening roar of the alarm caused Sam's father to grab him by the wrist and begin running down the corridor. "Daddy, what's going on?" Sam tried to ask over the alarms. His father paid no attention. "Daddy?" Sam looked up at his father. "Daddy, I'm scared." Suddenly, there was the sound of guns being fired, and then screams."Daddy, hold me!" His father picked up Samuel and carried him over his shoulder. He kept running as fast as he could, ignoring the bodies he ran by. "DADDY!" Samuel screamed. His father looked back in the direction Sam was looking, only to stop dead in his tracks. A thin, white figure with its arms raised and its mouth stained with blood. The figure let out a scream as it got closer. His father turned around and set Samuel on the ground. "Sam, I want you to listen to me very carefully." Sam glanced over his father and stared at the creature. Sam began to scream. "SAM, LISTEN TO ME!" His father shouted. "I WANT YOU TO RUN IN THAT DIRECTION..." His father pointed behind Sam. "I want you to run in that direction..." Sam began to cry softly. "When you run, go in a straight line and never look back." Sam's eyes were now a bloodshot red. "Sam," His father whispered. "Run. And never look back. Promise me." He whispered. Sam nodded, tears running down his cheeks. "Good...now go, my child." He pushed Sam forward, and his father stood and turned around facing the approaching creature. "Run now." Sam began to cry harder, yet he still pushed forward, running as fast as he could. "And never look back." His father whispered to himself as 096 charged at him. A single tear fell from his father's eyes as 096 lunged at him.
Samuel had reached an elevator. The last exit. He entered it, alone, and clicked a button. The last thing he heard as the elevator took him to the bright light above was his father screaming in agony, "NEVER LOOK BACK!"
Back to Reality Edit
Malfrous found himself at Gate A of Site 40-2. The PA System announced , The Omega Warheads are facing a malfunction; manual intervention is needed.
It was at that moment that Doctor Malfrous looked back... "I'll do it." Malfrous said. "I'll go down there and activate the bombs."
The End Edit
