" What happened here ? " Nikolai asked.

" Death." Heinrich replied. " Lots of death."

" We can see that, Lindemann." Viktor said." What caused these creatures to exist ?"

" I don't know. One minute, I'm in the lab trying to fix a broken light and the next I'm running for my life from things that want to eat me." Lindemann replied. " I hid in a weapons locker with a couple of other soldiers and when things quieted down, they wanted to try and escape to inform any troops in the area. Did you happen to see them ? "

" Nyet, you're the first live person we've seen since we entered this hell hole. " Nikolai replied.

" We saw a couple of dead soldiers at the entrance of the bunker. One was wearing what looked like work coveralls and the other had a uniform shirt on." Kunyevski said.

" That must have been them. Klein and Schmidt. I guess they didn't get far then." Lindemann said.

" How did you end up here ? " Nikolai asked.

" After a few hours of silence, I managed to sneak out of the weapons locker and slowly I made my way to this place. I tried finding the safe room, but I ended up getting lost and found my way back here after a short time." Lindemann replied.
" Is there another way out of here ?" Sergeyevich asked. " If so, can you show us where it is ?"

" There might be another access tunnel that leads to the surface, but I'd rather just stay here." Lindemann replied.

" If we stay here, we all run the chance of those things finding us. I say we take our chances finding the other tunnel." Kunyevski said.

"Agreed." Viktor said. " Lindemann, I'm putting you in charge of showing us where that tunnel is. You have a problem with that ?"

" No, sir." Lindemann replied.

"I suggest we get moving before those creatures find their way into the tunnel and find us." Viktor said.

The men followed Lindemann out of the small room and into adjoining part of the bunker. They walked slowly and kept their eyes open for any sign of the death walkers. Lindemann was visibly shaking as he had not seen the gruesome end most of his comrades had met. A few times he almost lost control of his stomach and vomited at the sight of some of the bodies. Few people had the unfortunate opportunity to see a glimpse of Hell, but Viktor and his men were thrust right into the heart of it. As the men looked around, the lights in the tunnel began to flicker, unnerving some of them.

" That happens from time to time. The electrical system of this bunker wasn't designed very well so the lights will flicker every now and then." Lindemann said, trying to mask his own nervousness.

" I guess the bunker wasn't designed for comfort, eh ?" Sergeyevich asked.

" Nein, these bunkers were designed to house as many soldiers as possible with very little thought put into the basics like electrical systems." Lindemann replied. " Which is why I was brought in along with a couple other men to keep the lights working. Besides, it beat getting shot at by men of another army."

Lindemann's words were truth to the men of the squad. They had spent the last five years avoiding being shot by either Germans or their own countrymen. Both Nikolai and Viktor had seen firsthand what happened to soldiers accused of cowardice or who retreated in battle. That was a fate neither man wanted for themselves.

" Uh, did anyone else hear that sound ?" Krieghoff asked.

"Nyet, but the lack of sounds in the tunnel is making me a bit nervous." Sergeyevich replied.

"What the hell is that ?" Kunyevski said, pointing towards the end of the tunnel.

The figure in the dark was the reanimated body of Private Chernov. Chernov ran towards the men at a quicker pace than anyone could've imagined.

" Shit, take him out. Fire ! " yelled Nikolai.

Gunshots rang out in the tunnel and a few well aimed shots ended Chernov's life once more. Kunyevski walked over to where his friend lay and said a small prayer for him.

"Why did you do that ?" Lindemann asked.

"Because he was my friend. Though he may have been a death walker and tried to kill us, I remember the way he was before his death and that is the way I will always remember him." Kunyevski replied.

" I suggest we move on before any of the other death walkers find us." Viktor said.

"Too late, tovarich." Nikolai said, pointing toward a mass of death walkers.

More gunshots rang out as the men fought their way out of the tunnel. It seemed that for every one that fell, two more took it's place. The men fought for each step they took in the tunnel. They saw light at the end of the tunnel and knew they had a chance to escape if they could just manage to get away from the death walkers.

''Die, you filthy bastards." Viktor screamed as he fired his Tokarev into the mass of bodies around him.

The tide of battle was turning for the men, but Lindemann was taken down by the death walkers as was Sergeyevich and Krieghoff. Angered at the deaths of his comrades, Kunyevski went into a blind rage, attacking as many death walkers as he could before Nikolai and Viktor pulled him away before he too was killed.

"Let go of me, Viktor." Kunyevski yelled.

"Nyet, comrade. Running out like that is a good way to get yourself killed." Viktor yelled at Kunyevski." I know it's hard to see a comrade killed like that, but getting yourself killed isn't going to bring them back or help in any way. You can get revenge for their deaths by killing as many of these fucking things as you can."

" Viktor, Josef, we have to retreat, NOW !" Nikolai screamed.

The remaining soldiers ran for the tunnel exit with the death walkers on their heels.

"You men get out of here and I'll cover your exit." Viktor said.

"Viktor, you have to get out of here as well." Nikolai said.

"Nyet, Nikolai. If no one stays behind and keeps these things from escaping, then who knows what will happen." Viktor said. " Now go."

"But Viktor..." Nikolai replied

"That is an order Sergeant Romanov." Viktor said.

"Yes sir, Lieutenant Tarkov." Nikolai replied.

Sadly, Nikolai left his friend in the bunker. Viktor said a small prayer, though he wasn't a religious man he felt he needed to make his peace before what he thought would be his final day on Earth. As he heard the sound of the death walkers slowly making their way toward his position, Viktor readied his Mosin, preparing himself for the final battle. As he saw a few of the creatures turn the corner, Viktor noticed he was not alone. He saw the glint of a bayonet and realized Nikolai and the others had defied his order.

"Nikolai, I could have you shot for disobeying my order." Viktor said, laughing.

"Did you really think I was going to leave a comrade behind ?" Nikolai replied." Besides, this isn't the first time I've defied an order and I didn't get shot for that one either."

"Well comrades, what do you say to us sending these creatures back to Hell where they belong ?" Viktor asked.

An overwhelming roar of approval came up from the men and as the creatures made their way to the men, their assault was halted by the men of Tarkov's squad. In a battle that would only be remembered by the men who fought it, many death walkers fell. The men soon exhausted their ammo supply and were forced to resort to grenades. Seeing an opportunity to seal the bunker once and for all, Viktor and his men retreated to the outside of the bunker and tossed every grenade they had down into the tunnel.

A massive explosion ripped through the tunnel, taking with it the creatures who caused the men so much grief. Viktor and his men fell exhausted by the river they had first made camp near days earlier. They had earned a much needed rest for their troubles.
Hours went by and the men slept until they were awaken by the sounds of passing soldiers. These weren't German soldiers, but American soldiers on their way to Berlin.

An American soldier riding in a Jeep noticed the blood drenched Russian soldiers and called for a group of men to see if they were ok.

" Do you speak English ?" the lead soldier asked the men.

" Da, I speak English, sir." Viktor replied.

"What the hell happened here ? " the American asked.

" Sir, you wouldn't believe me if I told you." Viktor replied.

EPILOGUE
Viktor, Nikolai and Kunyevski returned to their division and reported to Major Danilov that the bunker yielded no information that was worth anything to the Soviets. When asked about the deaths of Private Chernov, Private Sergeyevich and the German prisoner, Viktor stated the men were killed by a German sniper in a village on the way to the bunker. None of the three surviving men would ever say what truly happened in that bunker. Major Danilov was content that the men had found nothing and informed the Stavka of their findings.

After the war, Viktor and the others went their separate ways.
Nikolai returned to his home village and spent the remaining years of his life as a farmer.

Kunyevski travelled to Moscow and was reunited with his wife Tanya. He spent his life in Moscow teaching at a technical school for the Russian Army.

Viktor stayed in the military until retiring as a Major in 1968. He and the others stayed in contact with each other, occasionally getting together to reminisce about their days in the military and to remember their fallen comrades. Viktor never forgot the events that unfolded in that bunker, the nightmares that kept him up at night wouldn't allow him to. Neither man would tell anyone of their time in that bunker, only telling of their time in the Soviet military. Any information they had concerning the bunker and its horrors, each man took with him to his grave.

Oh no, it´s over.... :(


Great Story! :D

The only thing that makes me wonder is: They discovered bite victims earlier in a town nearby, so i´m really wondering why the disease wasn´t spread.... I imagined all hell breaking loose over europe since it obviously wasn´t contained in the bunker...

Then again, the bite victims had headshots. Makes it quite possible it was contained, if only by sheer luck....
