Gabe and Ruby are in a bedroom.
Gabe: I thought she would say yes.
Ruby: Maybe she really is busy.
Gabe: She probably just doesn’t like me anymore-
Ruby: Shut up about Dani. It’s always about her, Dani! Don’t you realise that I actually like you.
Gabe: You are just being silly-, wait what did you say? (Gabe stands up.)
Ruby: I said stop talking about Dani.
Gabe: No after that.
Ruby: Wait, what did I say?
Gabe: That you like me.
Ruby: I can’t believe I just said that.
Gabe: (He goes closer to Ruby.) Well, Dani is maybe pretty, but you are just as well. (He leans over to kiss her.)
Dani is walking to Gabe’s bedroom. She enters and sees Ruby and Gabe talking.
Dani: What did you want to tell me?
Gabe: Nothing, it doesn’t matter.
Dani: Well, thanks for telling me now. I have just had such a stressful day, and now I come running to you to see what you want and it was nothing.
Gabe: If you want to know. I was going to ask you out on a date, as your century say.
Dani: Oh. I’m so sorry. Ask me again, I am all listening.
Gabe: It’s too late.
Gabe: I found someone else.
Dani: What, who?
Gabe: (He points to Ruby.) Ruby.
Ruby: Hi. (She waves.)
Dani: I thought you were my best friend.
Ruby: Dani, I’m so sorry.
Dani: Well, I have news for you; I’ve got a new friend.
Dani: Sure thing. Never talk to me again. (She runs out.)
Ruby: (Turns to Gabe.) She’ll get over it. You heard her, she is stressed.
Jack and Jimmy enter the library. Leo and Esme are reading a book.
Jack: Have you heard of anything?
Leo: No, but we did find a book.
Jimmy: Oh, let’s see. (He takes the book.)
Leo: It says, Slender is only found in night. It also says that if Slender enter the building, the building must be in flames.
Jimmy: No, not the castle.
Esme: That is what it says.
Jack: Well, here’s the plan. No one enters and no one exits.
Jack: We all need to stay here.
Leo: And not scream. Because of the ghost that lives here.
Jack: Oh, no. There is another ghost here. This place is really creepy. (Jack’s phone goes off.) Oh, I got a text. (He picks up his phone and read the text.) Dear Jack, we are on our way, camp is so boring. (Pause.) Ok maybe we all did get kicked out. From Maisy.
Jimmy: Well, it was fun while it lasted.
Jack: Don’t worry the other 4 that are coming, are really good at plan making. Trust me; let them in, not anyone else.
Jimmy: I will tell Dani the news.
Esme: Trust me, I wouldn’t.
Esme: Well she broke up with that other girl.
Esme: Yep that’s the one.
Jack: Right, I’ll see if she is ok. (He leaves.)
Esme: Then Kaitlin left the castle in a big strop.
Leo: Wait, she left the castle.
Esme: Well, she was about to.
Jimmy: Wait, if she has left, then that means-
Leo: Slender could be here.
Esme: In the castle.
Leo: My stupid sister.
Esme: Well, she didn’t know the plan anyway.
Jimmy: (The door starts to knock.) Oh, no!
Leo: There comes Jack’s mates.
Jimmy: I’ll run and get the door, you have to stay here, find out more facts about Slender.
