Forgotten Society, Part 4

INT. REBEL HIDEOUT. EVENING.

Curtis enters looking proud. Renee enters looking angry and embarrassed.

MIGUEL:
Warner! You’re back!

Renee does not say anything.

CURTIS:
She’s pissed that she didn’t get
to kill her boss. I told her to give
it time!

RENEE:
And I told you that now we’re
murder suspects and it’ll be
impossible to kill him. They’ll
increase security.

MIGUEL:
If he’s a dragon, we’ll find a way.
Seriously, it takes a lot of
courage to come back, so thank you.

Renee does not say anything.

ABDUL:
I went out and got a tray of spaghetti.
Please, dine with us!

Renee and Curtis sit with them.

CURTIS:
So, what’s your plan to get rid
of the dragons?

SMITH:
All we know right now is we’ve
got to get rid of the ones that
infiltrated society by disguise.
At the same time, we are
trying to find the source of
their origin.

RENEE:
So, the answer to your question
is we have no plan.

SIMPSON:
Don’t be so negative. The less of
these creeps there are, the
better off we are.

CURTIS:
What makes them so evil anyways?
Is it just the desire for control?
I mean, what exactly are we
fighting against?

MIGUEL:
Our struggle is not against flesh and blood
but against the rulers, the authorities,
against the power of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil. We are
fighting against an evil being in an arrogant
man’s body. In his arrogance, the
wicked man hunts down the weak,
who are caught in the schemes he
demises. His victims are crushed, they
collapse, they fall under his strength.
His grip will reach further and further.
His mouth is full of curses and lies,
and trouble and evil are under his
tongue. Beauty and self expression
will vanish, and we will become less
than servants. We are fighting for
freedom in our future.

RENEE:
You saw my apartment, and my job,
so imagine a whole society like that.

CURTIS:
And you were going to stay there?

MIGUEL:
Let’s not judge each other. Now,
tomorrow I want you to buy
Curtis some weapons. Tonight,
we will patrol. Did you bring
your car, Renee?

RENEE:
Yes.

MIGUEL:
Good. Take everyone to Georgetown.
I’ll stay here and guard the compound.

CURTIS:
Maybe I should stay. You’re probably
better with weapons than I am.

WILLIAM:
Best way to learn is from experience.
We can teach you here too, but
trust me, it’s a hell of a lot
different out there.

Everyone nods in agreement.

WILLIAM:
Okay, I’ll give you a quick lesson now.

He takes out a dagger and throws it to him.

WILLIAM:
Step one, stab. Step two, stab again
if necessary.

Everyone laughs as they leave.
