IC-OMAHA-Arrival(chopper/Elijah/Michiko/Adam/Rachel/Liz)

The survivors from the T-Bone flee for the safety of Warren Air Force Base, while a lone woman struggles against all odds to stay alive in a very dangerous place. A small group of survivors races across Nebraska in a pickup truck. The helicopter group arrives in Omaha in a last ditch effort to save the world, but time is running out. Z-Day seems to last forever, but it will come to an end. The sun is getting lower, and night is coming...

IC-OMAHA-Arrival(chopper/Elijah/Michiko/Adam/Rachel/Liz)

Z-Day - 4:18 PM Central Time - Brooks High School, Omaha, Nebraska
On the roof-
As the people on the roof watched, a police helicopter approached from the west, coming in low. It slowed as it got closer, hovering over the circle of eight road flares that had been arranged to mark off a landing zone. The pilot, Trooper Erica Spears of the Nebraska State Police, expertly set the bird down in the center of the circle. The landing was so smooth that her passengers didn't feel a thing. Erica shut off the engine, and the spinning rotors began to slow. Erica herself was a tall woman with auburn hair, wearing a flight suit and with an M-16 slung over her shoulder. Even in her bulky attire, her beauty was readily apparent. In the co-pilot's seat sat a shorter woman who was far less attractive: Lucy Armstrong. In the rear bench seat, sitting on the left, was Dr. Brigetta Hausmann, her left arm in a sling. In the middle sat a blonde with short hair, wearing a lab coat and with a laptop computer on her lap. This was Stephanie Bridges. To her right was an aging black man in a suit and tie, carrying a medical kit: Dr. Bernard Smith.

Stephanie glanced up and looked around. "Oh, we've landed already!" she said. "You put us down so smoothly I hadn't even noticed, Erica." She saved her work and then reached across Brigetta's lap to open her door for her.

"Thanks, Steph," replied Erica. "Any time."

"Come on, let's get out and get set up in the lab fast. There's no time to lose! Where's Adam? I thought he'd be here."

Standing on the roof to greet their arrival was a tall woman with long blonde hair, carrying an Uzi on a shoulder strap and a Desert Eagle in a belt holster. Both Dr. Hausmann and Stephanie recognized her as Rachel Cohen, an Israeli security expert working for the CDC. They had seen her around frequently during the last year as they were doing their research. Standing near her were two students: a young Japanese woman with long, dark hair named Michiko Watanabe, and a short, scrawny teenager named Elijah Smith.

The roof itself was mostly empty. Its main feature was a large satellite dish that had been set up on the east side, far from the makeshift landing pad. There were fire escapes on the southwest and southeast corners, and another in the middle of the north side of the roof. In front of the fire escape was a small enclosure containing the top of a stairwell leading down into the school. Rachel and the students were standing in front of the entrance to the stairs and appeared to be looking down them. There was also a strange apparatus located near the stairs: the EMP generator that Adam Donnelly had spent much of the afternoon constructing.

On the north stairs, upper floor-
Adam sat on the flight of stairs between the second floor landing and the roof access, his head in his hands as he rocked back and forth. Dr. Liz Somerville rushed in from the second floor hallway. "Adam, what's wrong?" she asked, her lovely features shrouded with concern.

Spoiler:
You have five more turns of temporary insanity remaining, including this one. Liz will have a chance to bring you out of it in the next major update.

Michiko bows.
-Welcome it is an honour to receive you. My name is Michiko and I'm a student from Japan. Adam-San leaved us some minutes ago. The generator has failed and a group is trying to repair it; everyone who is not considered essencial in some task has to stay here for security reasons.

"Dr Hausmann, Ms Bridges, everyone, we're all thankful you've made it to Brooks High. Bad news, the school's generator is not working and Adam Donnelly has had a breakdown," Rachel indicates the stairwell. "The lab is also this way."

Adam

Adam clasps his hands behind his neck and stares at the floor, unable to look at Dr. Somerville.

"Generator down...what if I can't fix it...fence isn't going to hold...zombies all around us...all for real..."

He mumbles incomprehensibly toward the floor.
