INT. BATHROOM. NIGHT.
We hear a soft cry in the bathroom. ANGLE on sink. After a
few seconds, blood starts dripping on the side of the sink.
Then alot of blood begins to pour all over the faucet.
We see Sarah, crying, cutting her wrist with a sharp knife.
Her skin and flesh rips and she suddenly collapses on the
ground. The knife falls down right beside her as a puddle of
blood slowly expands near her.
INT. MAIN OFFICE. DAY.
Jaxon is looking at the picture of his daughter in the
picture. Damon is with him, sitting down on a desk.
She told me she was trying to help
with counselors to keep the kids
safe. The infection reached there.
Last thing I heard were
screams...then the phones lines
She’s a beautiful girl.
I wonder...every minute of the
Did you try going back to the camp?
Two things stopped me. First off,
calls were pouring in. I had to
take action and save these
people...two...the camp was over
You were hoping you would
eventually find your daughter
here...am I right?
Saving people’s lives gave me a
warm feeling, it did...but deep
down inside, I wanted to find her.
I wanted to save and protect her
like I always had promised...
We should go look for her.
There’s still a chance she’s out
there. We can go out and search.
Me, you, Trevor--
I appreciate the offer, I do...but
this is something I have to do on
my own. I can’t risk anymore lives.
Jaxon, if it weren’t for you, me
and my family would’ve been done
for. I’m telling you, whatever you
need, whatever you need help with,
I will tag along. Dangerous or not.
(slowly getting up)
Thanks Damon...but I would rather
keep family issues a little more
Jaxon looks back at the picture.
Emily is sitting down at the table, twirling her fork in her
food. Xavier approaches her.
Not a big fan of meat, I see.
Heh, no. Not really.
(sitting next to her)
You feeling okay?
Yeah...it’s weird in a way. I
thought I would be feeling alot
worse than this.
Yeah. Ryan never really cared about
my feeling to begin with.
Well, I tried telling you. Hell, we
all tried telling you when I was in
Yeah...guess I’m that typical dumb
You stood up to him, didnt’t you?
You’re a smart dumb blonde in my
They laugh together. Xavier turns his head and sees Phoenix
and Craig sitting at a table. Craig has a really upset look
on his face.
I feel so bad for him.
My brother’s friend. He lost Juno,
one of his best friends. He was a
good guy. It’s a shame how many
people’s we’re losing from this
I’ll say...wasn’t Juno friends with
Yeah...my brother has been through
more traumatic losses. Sounds
cruel, but this is nothing to him.
INT. NURSES’ OFFICE.
Olivia comes in with a tray of food. Sarah is sitting next
Hey. How is he doing?
He fell asleep a little while
Pause. Olivia approaches Sarah.
You haven’t eaten all day, Sarah.
For what? The only person we should
be worrying about right now is my
I’m fine. I’ll be ok. Trust me, I’m
a big girl.
Pause. Olivia takes out her stethoscope and begins checking
Mitchel’s heart rate. A worried look appears on her face.
What is it...??
His heart rate is slower than
Olivia takes the bandage off from the bite wound and they
see the bite is infected really badly and it’s spreading
Oh my God.
What do we do?? It’s spreading!
Get me the rubbing alcohol from the
cabinet. I’ll get a syringe ready.
Sarah does as she says. Olivia gets everything set up to
help try to stop the infection.
Is he going to be okay?
I’m going to do everything in my
power to make sure he’s alright--
Is he going to be okay???
Olivia, looking at Sarah, doesn’t have an answer. She
injects the syringe in his arm.
Xavier and Emily come to the table Phoenix and Craig are at.
Mind if we join?
You know you and your pet are
Yeah, yeah, real funny.
They both take a seat.
I’m sorry about Juno, Craig.
This is all just so ******** up, man!
I wonder what Jaxon’s plan is going
to be now.
What do you mean?
After what happened yesterday? He’s
got to have another plan by now.
Well everyone else left before
Jaxon could. They have a fighting
chance out there.
They’re all dead now. Everyone’s
Craig, please. Stop talking like
that just because you’re upset.
Yeah...upset. I’m more than ********
upset right now.
We all are, Craig. It’s just about
The hell you know.
My boyfriend left me for dead out
there. I think I have an idea.
Pause. Craig gets up and leaves.
He’ll be fine. All he needs is
What makes you so sure?
Because that’s exactly how I felt
when I had to say good bye too--
He chokes on his own words. Xavier quickly looks up at him,
knowing what he was about to say.
I’m sorry, I need a smoke.
He gets up and walks away.
(knowing its too late)
Xavier sees Jaxon and Damon come in the cafetiera. Jaxon
goes off and talks to the other few remaining survivors.
Damon approaches Xavier and Emily.
How we all feeling today?
Hanging in there.
Would feel better once this whole
thing is over.
That makes all of us. We’ll just
sit tight for now.
Xavier, where’s your sister?
Oh, you mean the lunch lady?
(laughing a bit)
What? Lunch lady?
Yeah. She’s been in the back
cooking with two other people.
Damon, from a distance, sees Kierra working and cooking in a
real fast pace with two other survivors. A smile appears on
Damon’s face. Jaxon walks up to him, seeing what he is.
A bit earlier I asked her if she
needed a break...she refused. She’s
been helping big time.
Wow. That’s amazing. She reminds me
so much of Trish.
Me and Trish met at the soup
kitchen. She was there almost
everyday to help others in
need...that’s what she always loved
to do. Even when she didn’t have
much...she always gave and helped
That just proves that she was
raised by the heart and arms of a
Damon and Jaxon look at each other and they smile.
That’s the kind of energy we could
Short Pause. Olivia approaches Jaxon.
Jaxon. You have a minute?
Jaxon nods and they both walk outside the cafeteria, into a
It’s Mitchel...it’s not looking too
It’s the bite, isn’t it?
Yes. I’m trying as much as I can,
but no matter what I do it just
gets worse and worse. It just won’t
He doesn’t have much longer. It’s
going to happen...I just don’t know
when and how. I don’t even know
what to say to Sarah or the rest of
Well, that makes two of us.
Gather Mitchel’s family together to
see him...it might be the last
He walks away.
INT. NURSES’ OFFICE.
Sarah is holding on to Mitchel’s hand, crying softly. She
then starts to stroke his hair, slowly. Tears are rolling
down her cheeks.
Dad...please...I’m not ready for
you to leave...I need you.
She cries more.
Not like this...I don’t want to
lose you like this...
Hey, kiddo...why so blue?
I’m...just scared. I need you. I
just want you to feel better
already. I won’t be able to go on
Sarah, listen to me...you’re such a
strong, beautiful girl. I
remember...when I first looked into
your eyes when you were born...I
look into your eyes, now and I see
how much you’ve grown...
I’ve always thought to myself...If
anything were to happen to you...I
know I wouldn’t have been able to
move on...You were the reason why
I’m who I am today...but I had to
remember life works in very
mysterious ways...and it won’t
MITCHEL (CNT’D) (cont’d)
throw anything at you that you
Sarah cries and Mitchel begins to cry softly as well.
You have your mother’s and your
aunt’s blood coursing through your
veins. You have the strength to
over power anything, Sarah. Trust
me...I knew that from the second I
looked into your eyes. It’s okay to
have fears, baby...it doesn’t mean
we can’t stand up to them.
Sarah nods and the door opens. Damon, Kierra, Phoenix and
Xavier rush to his bedside.
How you holdin up, uncle Mitch?
I feel as good as much as your
record is clean.
They all laugh. Emily and Olivia come into the nurses’
office as well.
How does your bite feel?
Just glad to see you’re still up
and talking with us.
As they conversate, Olivia walks to the back room, eyes
filled with tears. Emily watches, and knows what’s going to
You’ll be fine in no time, Mitchel.
Yeah, yeah. Besides from what is
happening...I’m still grateful to
He suddenly stops in the middle of his sentence.
He starts to have a seizure.
Olivia hurries out the door and sees.
Phoenix, Damon, I need you to hold
HOLD HIM DOWN!! Hold his legs down,
Phoenix hold his torso down!
Sarah is crying, Xavier puts his arms around her. Damon
holds down his legs and Phoenix holds Mitchel’s body down.
Emily turns Mitchel’s head, trying to create a clear airway.
Olivia sees the heart rate going down. Sarah falls to her
knees, crying hysterically. Kierra comforts Sarah as well.
Emily, step back.
Olivia takes over. As she’s going to get an am bu bag, the
seizure stops. Silence fills the room.
Olivia checks his heart rate. She then starts to pump his
She does mouth to mouth. She then starts pumping his chest
again. She does the mouth to mouth.
Olivia continues to try, and checks his heart beat again.
She looks at everyone and slowly shakes her head.
No..!! NO!!!! Dad!!
Xavier holds her as Sarah buries her head to the floor.
Olivia turns to Damon, and he’s in complete shock, not
knowing what to do. The family mourns over him.
