Forgotten Society, Part 14

A bunch of people from all over the world are inside the presidential suite watching the news. Renee, Curtis, Miguel, William, and Tiffany are also there. A news anchor appears to cover the story.

ANCHOR MAN:

Investigators have discovered a mass group

of sinners and criminals at the Morning Star

apartments. Therefore, there will be no

further investigation into the attack.

People react with anger and shock.

ANCHOR MAN:

Daniel is calling for police to find the

whereabouts of the survivors to bring

them to justice.

People react with fury.

AMERICANS:

That’s bullshit!

ENGLISHMEN:

That’s rubbish!

HAITIANS:

Beaucoup de mairde!

IRISH MAN:

(to the main five)

These people are heroes! Look at

them, lining up their photos like

they’re terrorist leaders!

FIREMAN 1:

That man saved our lives.

DAD:

She saved my daughter!

MIGUEL:

They are calling all of you our partners

in crime. This chaos and control is going

to escalate if we don’t act quickly. Daniel

and his men aren’t human. They are

dragons using human skin. There’s only

one way to stop them. We need to round

up as many people as we can to slay

the grand dragon. We must do this as

quickly as possible.

The people in the room, already teeming with adrenaline, readily agree. The five also prepare to leave.

EXT. CROSSGROVE HOLLOW. EVENING.

Everyone walks through the forest with trepidation.

RENEE:

(whispers)

I have a bad feeling about this.

CURTIS:

(whispers)

I know, but hope for the best.

(beat)

If something does happen, I just

wanna tell you that-

He is cut off when a SWAT team ambushes them. Some surround the rebels while others arrest them.

INT. TERRORIST CELL ONE. EVENING.

The room is an empty, stone-walled cell with a chained chair in the center. A couple of officers toss Miguel into the room.

INT. TERRORIST CELL TWO. EVENING.

A couple of officers throw William in.

INT. TERRORIST CELL THREE. EVENING.

A couple officers throw Tiffany in.

INT. TERRORIST CELL FOUR. EVENING.

A couple officers throw Renee in.

INT. TERRORIST CELL FIVE. EVENING.

A couple of officers throw Curtis in. They chain him to the chair.

OFFICERS:

Are you Curtis?

CURTIS:

I am Stevens!

INT. TERRORIST CELL TWO. EVENING.

OFFICER 2:

What were you doing in Crossgrove Hollow?

WILLIAM:

Go to hell!

The officer slaps him, but William barely reacts.

INT. TERRORIST CELL THREE. EVENING.

OFFICER 3:

We know you’re guilty. There’s no

use in continuing to lie.

TIFFANY:

If you know the story, then why do

you need me?

INT. TERRORIST CELL ONE. EVENING.

OFFICER 4:

We want to know where you’re

hiding the other survivors.

MIGUEL:

Go figure it out yourself! I’ll die

before I tell.

The officer gets in his face.

OFFICER 4:

That can be arranged!

INT. TERRORIST CELL FOUR. EVENING.

Renee sits defiantly. An officer points a gun at her head.

OFFICER 5:

Any last words you want on

public record?

RENEE:

You’re full of shit, and you smell

like piss!

The officer cocks his gun. Before he can shoot it, BENJAMIN (Tiffany’s older brother) bursts in with a bunch of other vigilantes.  They kill the officer and free Renee.

BENJAMIN:

My father said you were in trouble.

Tiffany has a police radio or something,

so he heard…

RENEE:

We don’t have a lot of time! Let’s move!

They run out.

INT. TERRORIST CELL TWO. EVENING.

Renee, Benjamin, and the others burst in. The officer drops his weapon and surrenders. A couple of people keep their weapons on him. They free William and run out.

INT. TERRORIST CELL THREE. EVENING.

They go in to see that Tiffany has been cut and passed out. They kill the officer. William wraps a tourniquet for her. He and a couple of others carry her out. The rest go back for the others.

INT. TERRORIST CELL ONE. EVENING.

They burst in and see Miguel arguing vehemently with the officer. They kill the officer and free Miguel. They leave.

INT. TERRORIST CELL FIVE. EVENING.

When everyone bursts in, the officer holds a knife to Curtis’s throat.

OFFICER 1:

Leave, or he dies!

Everyone stands still, unsure what to do, except Renee, who walks up to him silkily.

RENEE:

Relax. We don’t want any trouble.

Surely, there must be something we

can do to work this out.

Renee caresses his arm.

OFFICER 1:

You’re hot, but I got strict orders to-

Renee grabs the knife and stabs the officers eye. As they free Curtis, the officer pulls the knife out. His eye comes with it. He screams. They all run out.
