4. The Hook-up

Rachel: Why did you do that?

Meagan: They won’t know we are here.

Ryan: Who is ‘they’?

Meagan: ‘shrugs shoulders’

  -The front door opens and the group hides in different places; Rachel and Josh dive into the cupboard, Chantelle, Dawn, Star and Ryan jump behind the couch and Meagan and James hide behind the kitchen bench. Meagan grabs a knife-

Voice 1: There were people here.

Voice 2: It could have been before the invasion, the master made sure that every house was evacuated and taken to the shopping centre.

  -Meagan and James look at each other shocked-

Voice 1: What if these people weren’t in the house at the time of the evacuation and they were out hiking or bush walking?

Voice 2: Then we will find them.

  -The footsteps continued to make its way to the kitchen table.-

Voice 1: I will go around the bottom level.

Voice 2: I will go upstairs then.

  -The footsteps split up and the person going around the bottom level walked back towards the front door. Meagan seized the opportunity-

Meagan: Everyone keep down and stay still. James if he comes near us I will stab him in the leg but I want you to cover his mouth so that the other one wont hear him. Ok?

Everyone: Yep

  -Just as the group finished the footsteps came back into the kitchen-

Meagan: You ok?

James: Yeah.

  -The footsteps got closer and closer, Meagan shoved the knife out and got him in the leg and James got up and covered his mouth in time-

Meagan: Good job, guys come out and start getting out and get to the bushes. Me and James will meet you there in a few.

  -Everyone leaves out the back door-

Meagan: Just give me a couple of minutes to do something.

James: What do I do with him?

Meagan: Tie him up.

James: Ok, where are you going?

Meagan: Upstairs, to get the other one.

James: Why? Can’t we just leave him?

Meagan: Really do you want him to bring more soldiers and then where will we go?

James: No, but if we get the other one wont they do it anyway?

Meagan: Yeah, but not as soon. If we don’t do it, it will give us not even 5 minutes if we do, do it it should give us half an hour.

James: Fine, let’s do it then.

  -After James tied the first guy up the pair started towards the stairs but they stop as they hear footsteps coming down the stairs-

Meagan: Curtains.

  -They both dive for the curtains, just in time-

Voice 2: Dutch are you here? Dutch where are you?

  -Meagan and James jumped out from the curtains and took the second solider down-

Meagan: Yes.

  -She looks up at James and smiles, he stars back at her and smiles-

Meagan: You did good, thank you for helping me.

James: Why wouldn’t I help you?

  -James takes a few steps closer-

Meagan: I don’t know, maybe because some people don’t like helping.

  -James takes a few more steps closer; he puts his hand out and takes Meagan’s-

Meagan: James we can’t, we have to get back to the others.

  -James stars into Meagan’s eyes-

James: Come on, just one kiss?

Meagan: James, fine.

  -They lean in and Dawn jumps around the corner holding a thick branch-

Dawn: Meagan?

  -The pair jumps apart-

Meagan: Dawn?

Dawn: Ok, it’s you. Come on lets go.

Meagan: Why are you here?

Dawn: Well, I thought I may need to keep you two out of trouble.

  -Dawn looks at them both, they here noise from the side of the house-

Dawn: Star, be quiet. I found them ok.

Star: OK, that’s good. Now let’s leave.
