Xavier and Phoenix are walking through the hallway, heading
to where Damon and Mitchel are.
Thanks alot, man. You saved us.
It was nothing. Heh, AND I wasn’t
fully rested. Damn, I’m good.
How long do you think the door will
Hopefully forever. As long as their
stuck there, we should be fine.
I knew you cared about us.
Hey man, don’t go soft on me. You
know I don’t like that crap...
But you do.
Xavier, if you don’t shut up I
swear I’ll snap your neck with
those chains myself.
Michael is walking at the other end of the hall, walking
towards them. He greets them and Phoenix and Xavier greet
him back. Xavier then looks back at Michael, eyeing his gun.
What is it?
Nothing...just wondering how I
would stop you from snapping my
neck is all.
Jaxon is looking at something that we can’t see. Damon
knocks on the door and comes in. Jaxon quickly puts it away
and turns back.
Hey. What’re you up to?
Nothing much. I’m just going to get
some rest before we see what
tomorrow brings. What’re you doing
Well...I was just wondering the
school. It’s been awhile since we
were in high school you know.
Just a couple years.
They both laugh. Damon sits down next to Jaxon.
I just really want to say
thanks...for saving our asses back
It’s my job. My search isn’t over.
There’s still more survivors out
If you need help with anything, by
all means don’t hesitate to ask me.
I’ll definatley pick you up on that
offer. With more people coming in
and my crew not getting any larger
it could be of use.
I don’t think we introduced
ourselves yet...I’m Damon.
Jaxon here. I’m sure you have heard
my name around.
I have. Olivia told me what a great
guy you are. You brought all these
people here. It’s amazing.
I appreciate what you’re saying.
But being a hero is a lot more
stressful then I thought it would
What do you mean?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m very proud
and honored to bring everyone to
saftey. It’s just I have a lot of
responsibility. It can be...tiring.
I’m 47 years old. Almost 50.
Since you saved my family, whatever
I can do, name it. I owe you
everything. Even if you need to sit
tight and rest, just ask me to go
out. I’ll do it.
Hmm...you’re no regular man I see.
Are all four of those kids yours?
I have three kids and a niece. My
brother in law is also with us.
Where’s your wife? I bet she would
want know how you guys are doing.
My wife died 3 months ago.
I’m real sorry to hear that. I
It’s alright. It hurt us all, but
as you can see we’re still trying
to get by.
How did she pass? If you don’t mind
She was sick. With lupus. We
thought it was all over,
I’ve lost my wife to one of the
infected out there. One of those
things grabbed her bit her. I
couldn’t save her.
Yeah, well. It’s best not to worry
about it. We’re going to need our
rest. I’ll see you in the morning,
Thanks Jaxon. Again, anything you
need just let me know.
Damon leaves the room, closing the door behind him.
EXT. FOOTBALL FIELD.
We see Xavier walking outside to the football field. He goes
to the end of the field, away from the school and takes out
a gun he stole from the officers. He sees a zombie from a
far distance. He aims at it and tries shooting it, but
He looks back to see if it had woken up anyone. He looks at
the zombie again, aims and shoots, but misses. He points the
gun up again, but looking very focused. As he’s about to
pull the trigger, a gunshot already hits the zombie in the
head, and it falls.
Xavier puts down the gun and looks back to see Trevor by the
That’s how you shoot one of those
Who are you?
The question is, what’re you doing
out here? It’s dark and it’s
dangerous you should be inside.
Why should I listen to you...?
Because I’m in charge of looking
after the school. I keep the school
safe, my friend.
I’m sorry. I just wanted to do a
little practice out here.
It’s the wrong place to do it.
Noise attracts those things more.
If you’re gonna shoot one you have
to save it for an emergency
only...hey, where did you get a gun
in the first place?
Wouldn’t you like to know.
Did Michael offer to lend you his
gun or something?
Short pause. Trevor laughs.
Don’t worry kid, your secret is
safe with me. You here with
I’m here with my family...please
tell me you know what’s going on.
Unfortunatley, I don’t. The last
broadcast to air was to seek
shelter and our homes weren’t
strong enough to withstand
Do you know anything about them?
The only thing we really know is
that the infection is highly
contagious. We don’t know how it’s
spread though. My guess is that if
they take one clean chunk out of
you then you’re finished.
That would make sense.
It does. I mean it’s not
airbourne...there has to be one
logical explaination. If it gets
into your blood stream or anywhere
in your veins then you get infected
Wow. That’s really scary.
Again, I’m no doctor or anything.
Hell, Olivia doesn’t even know
what’s causing the infection to
spread. If a doctor doesn’t know,
how will we? You get me?
Yeah I get you. I just hope it
stops soon so we can get back to
our normal lives.
I’m with you on that. Say, it’s
getting late. Why don’t we go
inside? I don’t want any of the
infected attacking you.
Alright...but can I try one more
If you want a real gun, take mine.
He hands Xavier the sniper rifle Trevor always carries.
Wow! Impressive. I haven’t seen
anything like this gun since I
played my games.
Well, try it out...just remember to
He helps Xavier hold the sniper rifle the right way. Xavier
spots a zombie. Xavier is about to pull the trigger but
Trevor stops him.
Again...patience. You’re the lion
and that’s a rabbit or
something...be patient and eye your
Xavier keeps an eye on the zombie, pulls the trigger and the
bullet flies in between the zombie’s eyes.
That was nice. Alright, come on. We
can walk back together.
Xavier, amazed at what he did, gives Trevor the gun and
looks back to where he shot the zombie.
INT. CAFETERIA. MORNING.
Damon, Phoenix, Xavier, Kierra, Mitchel and Sarah are all
sitting on the table the next morning. They all have a small
breakfast but enough to get them by. Everyone is sitting
with their families and friends.
Where the hell is our governer? I
would’ve expected to hear something
It’s early, Mitchel. Maybe Jaxon
will come and have something good
to say to all of us.
Jaxon always has something good to
say. We need a rescue team or
This could be happening all over
the US. It’s going to take some
Speaking of which, how did everyone
sleep last night?
I miss my bed...
I don’t even miss my bed. I miss
waking up from my bed to play my
I slept ok.
Good. So far we all have no reason
You never complain.
Xavier sees Emily and Ryan standing near the doorway, having
a slight arguement. Kierra, Phoenix and Sarah see what he’s
He’s such an a**.
My friend’s boyfriend. He’s like
the fly that’s so annoying you just
want to kill already.
It’s true. She deserves alot
I swear to God if Ryan does
anything to get us all killed---
He stops dead in his tracks. Damon and Mitchel look at him.
What did you just say?
Phoenix gulps down his drink and leaves the table, walking
What the hell was that about?
Uhm, nothing. Him and Ryan just got
into a misunderstanding yesterday.
He wins all of his battles anyway,
dad. What are you so worried for?
That’s not my point. He just needs
to watch what he does. If Jaxon
sees that he’s a threat to ANYONE
here, he will kick us out for sure.
Ryan is no different than what you
Then, let Jaxon throw him out. We
don’t need problems with any other
people. They won’t matter. You guys
know if ANYTHING were to happen, we
stick together. We don’t wait for
anyone else but our own, got it?
Keep that through all of your thick
Xavier nods, and looks back at Emily.
I’m getting more juice.
She leaves the table. A boy toddler, LIAM, age 4 comes up to
Kierra and taps her.
Oh, hi there...!
Damon, Mitchel and Xavier look at the toddler.
Hey buddy! What’re you doing here?
I just wanted to say...you’re
really really pretty.
Liam shyly turns around and walks over to his mother.
I’ll be right back.
Kierra walks over to the little boy and his mother, who
looks to be around in her mid thirties. The mother’s name is
Hi. I’m Kierra. Your son came up to
Confessed his love to you? He told
how pretty he thought you are.
Awww how thoughtful! He’s so cute.
Thanks. Why don’t you join us? He’s
been looking for a friend.
I would love to.
She sits down next to them.
Cuts off to Xavier, Mitchel and Damon.
She found another family. ’Bout
Don’t be mean.
Mitchel sees Sarah walking out of the cafeteria. Mitchel
gets up and approaches her.
Mitchel approaches Sarah.
What’s really going on? Think twice
before you answer me.
Why are you so worried when there’s
nothing to be worried about?
Don’t answer my question with
Well what would you want me to say?
I don’t have an answer.
I’ve been your father for eighteen
years. I know something is up.
Well why don’t you go and ask him
You know how Phoenix is, he won’t
tell me anything, you know that.
So what more do you want me to say?
I just want you to be safe. I worry
about you because I don’t want you
in any dangerous situations.
I am. I have you, Damon, Kierra
everyone. We’re protected by the
police...I am safe. We have too
much to worry about.
Alright. Fair enough.
They hug each other tightly.
Olivia comes into the cafeteria.
Chatter dies down as everyone looks at Olivia.
Just to inform you we have the
Everyone gets excited and gets up.
The water is limited, so no more
then a 8 minute shower. I’ll line
up everyone so we all have our
Everyone takes out their extra clothes, and follow Olivia.
Was that what you were looking for?
Not quite, Xavier.
Jaxon and Trevor come into the cafeteria.
Hey Damon! You have a minute?
Damon gets up and walks over to Jaxon.
Jaxon, Trevor, Damon and Michael are in the office.
What’s going on?
Well, we got some good news and
some bad news. First off, me
introduce you to my right hand man,
Pleasure to meet you.
Nice meeting you too.
Well, the good news. As you heard
before, Michael and Trevor have got
the water working...
But we have no soap...no shampoo.
Nothing. Not even detergent.
Detergent? Are we going to be here
for that long?
It’s just in case. We haven’t heard
anything yet. And if we’re all
going to be out there...we’ll see
for ourselves. To see if things
have gotten completely better or
Jaxon said that you were willing to
help? If so then that’ll be
Yeah. Is that what I’m called here
for? To help gather supplies?
Yep. Not just bathing needs. We
also need fluids. We’re running
No problem. Count me in. Will it be
It’ll be me, you, officers Nick and
Carlos. We’ve had a few volunteers
Someone in the school used to be a
cashier there. So she knows where
everything is. And her boyfriend
wouldn’t let her go alone, so,
he’ll come along as well.
Maybe I can ask my brother in law
It’s alright, man. We don’t need
everyone else in danger.
I’ll get back on the rooftop and keep watch.
I’ll see you guys in a little bit?
Yeah. Tell Officer Nick and Carlos
to be down here in three. Me and
Michael will prepare. Emily and her
boyfriend will be waiting for us in
Alright. Just lead the way.
Does Olivia know that we’re leaving
and Emily is coming?
She’s aware. She wanted t come as
well, but she’s the the doctor. Just in
case someone gets sick she needs to
be here. Alright...let’s head out.
