3. The Invasion

-5 minutes later, a car pulls up-

Detective Dallas: Hello, my name is Detective Dallas and this is Detective Hudson.

Hudson: Hello, now may you take us to the body.

Meagan: Yes I will.

Hudson: Yes, can we please have one other which is stable enough to come.

  -James stepped forward-

James: I will.

Dallas: Good job young man, now let’s carry on.

-The four walk into the shed-

Dallas: Now explain what happened.

James: Well, I walked in and fell down there.

  -James points to the hole-

James: And then Meagan tried helping me out and I pulled her in and she rolled over and found the body.

  -He looked at Meagan-

Dallas: I’m sure it was quite a shock to you when you found what you have landed on.

Meagan: Yeah, it was. I was very curious on how the body got here and then I was also scared for the group.

Dallas: Why were you scared for the group?

Meagan: Because none of us had an idea how long the body was there and if person was murdered or not.

Dallas: You are very observant aren’t you?

Meagan: I try to be.

Dallas: It’s very smart and safe to be observant, and by observing the body now I say that the person was murdered.

James: What makes you say that?

Dallas: You can see bruising around the throat.

Meagan: Allowing you to presume that the person was strangled to death.

Dallas: Precisely.

  -Bang, Crash-

Star: AHHH.

  -The group of four run outside-

Hudson: What happened?

Ryan: This person came running across the field with a gun and tried to smash the side of the shed.

Radio: Detective Dallas do you copy?

Dallas: Yes Dallas over.

Radio: Dallas, all the control towers have been taken over. We assume…..


Dallas: Base, do you copy?

Dallas: Base?


Dawn: What’s happening?

Dallas: Obviously someone wanted you to find the body so that you would get us out of the office.

Sam: But I was the only person who took them here.

Meagan: Sam would never do this on purpose.

Sam: I’m not smart enough.

Dallas: Well, we have to go. I want you to stay here and don’t leave, unless it is absolutely necessary.

Meagan: What we are in the open. What if that person was to come back?

Hudson: That is true. Go into the bushes, Sam I want you to lead them to a safe area in the bushes. Stay there and set up a camp make sure you have watches.

Sam: Ok, I will.

Dallas: You Meagan, stay observant it may just save your life.

Meagan: Yes, sir.

  -Both the detectives walked to their car and drove off, leaving the group in the clearing alone-

Rachel: OK, Sam take us somewhere.

Sam: OK, follow me.

  -The group follow Sam-

James: Hey Meagan can I talk to you?

Meagan: Yeah, sure.

  -Meagan walks up to James, and she looks up at Star. Star is starring at her with a cheeky smirk-

James: Well, I hear that you are the apparent leader.

Meagan: Are you serious, I can’t handle pressure or stress.

James: Well you are good at leading people and helping people in need.

Meagan: No I’m not.

James: Yes you are, you’re not good at expressing your feeling though.

Meagan: I have no idea, what you are talking about?

  -Meagan looks away blushing-

James: I’m sure you do.

  -He grabs Meagan’s hand-

Meagan: Huh?

  -She looks at James, gun shots-

Rachel: Nooo, Sam!

Meagan: What happened?

 -Meagan comes running up pulling James along, their hands are still held together-

Sam: I’m fine I just got shot, please just go and let them get me.

Meagan: NO, Sam you are coming with us.

James: Meg, we have to go. They are coming now and if we don’t leave immediately we are going to die.

Meagan: No, I can’t just leave her here.

  -Meagan starts to cry, James kneels down next to her and Sam starts to struggle to breath-

James: Meagan, we have to go now.

Sam: Megan….listen to… self... i be ok.

  -Sam’s eyes roll back into her head and she turns lifeless-

Meagan: Sam no, Sam no you can’t leave me.

James: Come on everyone else has gone we have to go now.

  -James lifts Meagan up and she eventually runs alongside him and they meet up with the rest of the group-

Rachel: I can’t believe it she is gone.

Chantelle: Meagan are you ok?

Dawn: Of course she isn’t ok. She just saw one of her friends die and I doubt that if you saw one of your friends die you would like people asking you that question.

Chantelle: Shut up I wasn’t talking to you. You have no idea who I am so you can’t talk to me like that.

Dawn: How dare you say that.

Chantelle: Oh I dare bitch.

Meagan: Oi, Chantelle you can either shut up or you can go on alone and be killed yourself.

Chantelle: You can’t say that you just saw Sam die, I don’t think that you would wish my death at all.

Meagan: If I wasn’t being held back by James I would do the honours myself.

  -Star and Dawn star at James smile and nod their heads, James gives them a stern look-

James: Meagan calm down come and sit over here.

  -James moves and sits Meagan over the other side of the clearing to Chantelle-

Star: Does anyone know exactly, where we are?

Ryan: No I don’t, I don’t usually go walking around the bushes in my spare time.

Dawn: Meagan do you know anything about this place, if you ever see Sam before you come and see me that is all you talk about.

  -The group looks up at Meagan, see slowly looks up and stands up-

Meagan: I use to go walking with Sam and on her birthday a few years ago we went walking and we ended up here just up over there should be the Deli.

  -Meagan points to where the deli is, none of the lights are on-

Ryan: Not to be mean or anything but shouldn’t the lights still be on. I mean it’s only half past six.

Meagan: I guess they should be, but what if it was taken over. I mean if the control towers have been taken over, maybe other places have been taken over.

James: That is true but what control towers have been taken over, and by whom?

Star: That person on the radio said that the control towers had been taken over and that’s all I remember.

Ryan: That is true, now it could be any control towers and how are we supposed to get help if the police station is down.

Star: We can always go back to someone’s house before it gets too late and we can’t see anything.

James: Yeah, that would be a great idea, then we can get changed, have something to eat and possibly get in contact with someone.

Ryan: OK lets go back to my place, we can do all that their.

James: All right, let’s go then.

  -10 minutes later the group had made it back to Ryan’s house-


Ryan: Ok there is food in the fridge and in the cupboard, there is water in the tap and there are clothes in the rooms.

  -The group splits up, girls and boys. They all go to find clothes and food-

Meagan: Here are some clothes for us to share.

  -Meagan places a bunch of clothes for the girls in one pile and the pile for the boys over the other side of the table-

James: Is this all?

Meagan: This was all the clothes that we could find.

Ryan: Here we have bags of food and then the rest of the food in the fridge we can eat for dinner before we move on.

  -The group sat down and ate the rest of the food from the fridge and sat and talk-

Rachel: So what do you think has happened?

Ryan: We have no idea, the control towers are down and we have no idea what towers they are.

Josh: And if the police station was taken down, where else can we get help?

James: We don’t know any places around here.

Ryan: That is the problem. I may live here but Sam was the only person who knows her way around the Forest.

Meagan: What about Cher?

Dawn: Who is Cher?

Ryan: Sam’s older sister. Why would she go out and look around in the bush?

Meagan: She always came whenever me and Sam went out walking.

Rachel: And then at Sam’s birthday a year or two ago, we all went walking to the area and through the bush.

  -Bang, crash. Noise is heard from outside, the whole group goes silent. Meagan stands up and turns the lights off-
