Forgotten Society, Part 12

INT. REBEL HIDEOUT. MORNING.

Renee and Curtis storm in. They make a lot of noise to wake everyone up. Everyone does wake up, confused.

RENEE:

Grab your weapons! Crossgrove Hollow has

been placed under martial guard, so it’s

not safe here!

William, Tiffany, and Miguel are shocked.

CURTIS:

There is a piece of good news in all

this: Daniel is putting heavy guard

on Thornprick Path,  and he looked

seriously frightened when he thought

we knew what he was doing here, so

we think the dragon’s lair may be there!

MIGUEL:

We kept going to where they where targeting,

but I didn’t realize they kept away from here

 for a reason! They never attack the hikers

or campers in the area so no one follows

them to their lair! The attacks were leading

us away from it! But Daniel got weak!

Tiffany, how’s your ankle?

TIFFANY:

It’s a little tender but I can walk.

MIGUEL:

Good! Now is the time for us to put an

end to all this madness! I don’t know what

we’ll find there, but we’ll do what we’ve

always done and hatch a plan as the

opportunity arises. Failure is not an option!

Let’s go! And never forget what we’re

fighting for!

They all gather their things and leave.

EXT. THORNPRICK PATH. MORNING.

They see that Thornprick path is a windy, black gravel road leading up a small mountain. The mountain looks to be made of the same dark gravel but is lined with the occasional thorn bush. They see two guards standing before the path. William throws a branch as far as he can. The guards go to find the source of the noise. They sneak onto the path.

EXT. THORNPRICK LEDGE. MORNING.

They get to a spot that they deemed far enough away from the guards to start talking.

TIFFANY:

That was easy!

MIGUEL:

Yes, we got lucky.

Renee stops and looks out to the panoramic view of Washington DC. She looks deeply uneasy.

CURTIS:

Are you okay?

RENEE:

There’s something wrong. Daniel was

very insistent on protecting the area.

Why suddenly the change of heart.

MIGUEL:

Come on! We’ve got to move quickly!

Curtis starts to move but Renee stays put.

RENEE:

Guys! Look!

Everyone turns around to see, in the distance, a dragon in the sky. It flies straight into the Morning Star apartments, whose floors burst into flame where impacted. Horror-struck, everyone races down the mountain.
