INT. STAIRWELL. NEXT DAY.
Trevor is making sure the doors to the other side of the
school are locked. He looks through the door window and sees
a few zombies wondering aimlessly in the halls. A zombie
hand slams against the window, startling him. He backs away,
slowly, then turns around and leaves.
Olivia is walking toward the nurses’ office. Michael
How is she holding up?
She’s not taking it good at all.
Its just so sad...and knowing
there’s nothing we can do is
just...apologize. Knowing that
doesn’t help at all.
He died from the bite?
And he didn’t turn yet?
No. I know it sounds weird and
unlikely. You would think it would
happen by now from the things we’ve
She’s in there by herself with him?
No. Jaxon’s in there with her. He
won’t take any chances. We can’t
lose anymore people.
Unfortunately that’s not the way
it’s going to work.
The infected are still in the
I’m meeting with Trevor soon. We
have to think of something.
I should get going.
She nods and they both part separate ways.
INT. NURSES’ OFFICE.
Olivia walks in the office. She sees Jaxon standing in the
corner. Sarah is sitting on Mitchel’s bedside, still holding
his hand. The redness around her eyes makes it look like
she’s been crying for hours on end.
Are you hungry, Sarah?
Pause. Sarah doesn’t say anything, her eyes still locked to
her dad. Jaxon and Olivia look at each other.
Jaxon walks and kneels down beside Sarah.
Sarah...I’m so sorry for your loss.
He was a real good man. Very
protecting, I could tell.
I know it’s hard, but you know what
we have to do. Before he turns.
Pause. Sarah cries softly to herself.
Okay...okay. Can i just have a few
minutes alone with him?
You know I can’t do that.
Sarah, understand we gave you
almost the whole day...I know its
tough, but if he turns and you’re
Please...please. Just a few more
minutes. That’s all I want.
Come on, Jaxon. We’ll be right
ourside if you need us.
Jaxon, hesitantly, leves the room with Olivia.
INT. OUTSIDE OF NURSES’ OFFICE.
I didn’t like that.
What? The girl lost her father, she
deserves to have as much time as
At a situation like this? Mitchel
is going to turn ANY minute, and if
she gets bit and we lose her too--
Just let her be, Jaxon. If anything
I’m sure she’ll know what to do
when the time comes.
Xavier is on the rooftop, looking far out into the distance.
We see dozens of zombies scattered out on the school
grounds. He takes a deep breath and exhales.
Emily comes up to him.
There you are.
I was looking for you.
Oh, I apologize.
No need to. I’m sorry about
Wish there was something I could
You’ve done enough. It’s okay.
Why are you up here?
Just needed some air...was in a
Like what? If I may ask.
Just looking at the infected out
there...and with everything that’s
happening so far...what does the
future hold? This?
We’ve been here for days...no
police...no military...no nothing.
Its just got me thinking...is this
really the end?
Short pause. Emily walks beside Xavier, and look at the
infected as well.
It’s not the end...until we decide
its going to be.
Xavier and Emily look at each other. They then both look out
to the distance again. We see clips of zombies hissing and
INT. NURSES’ OFFICE.
Sarah has a tight grip on Mitchel’s hand. She sobs, running
her fingers through his hair.
Dad...come back. Please...come
I can’t lose you...it’s not fair..!
I love you dad...
She continues to mourn. She lifts up his hand and kisses it,
with tears rolling down her cheeks.
Kierra is crying in a hallways near some lockers. She turns
around and sees Damon walking toward her. She runs to him
and hugs him tightly, crying.
Dad...I’m so scared...
Shhh...you don’t need to be. It’s
going to be okay. We’re all scared
to...we’re going to miss him alot.
What’s most important is that we
need to stick through with this as
a family. Ok? No different from
when we lost mom.
What if the infection doesn’t stop?
There’s no help on the way or
anything. Dad what does this mean?
It means we still have each other,
Kierra. It means we’re still
together, fighting and trying to
survive as one...
INT. NURSES’ OFFICE.
As Sarah is still crying softly, she suddenly notices his
arm beginning to twitch. The tears stop and she watches. His
whole body begins to twitch, as if he’s trying to wake up.
Sarah slowly gets up, and backs away.
His eyes suddenly open. He turns to her, leaps up and
tackles her to the ground. She screams loudly.
Olivia, Jaxon, Damon and Kierra hear the scream.
They all run to the nurses’ office.
INT. NURSES’ OFFICE.
Sarah is on the floor, Mitchel screeching right at her,
trying to bite her. Sarah is screaming, pushing him back as
much as she can.
Damon kicks open the door. Sarah’s hand slips, and Mitchel
leans in more, not even an inch away from her arm, chomping
his teeth together.
Damon takes out the handgun he was given, and takes Mitchel
off Sarah. He then shoots him in the head. Blood splatters
Kierra runs to Sarah.
Are you okay??
They hug each other, crying. Jaxon and Damon look at
Mitchel’s corpse, lying on the ground.
Phoenix is walking past the cafeteria with Craig. He takes
out a pack of cigarettes and hands one to him.
They both stop and Emily catches up with them.
Hey. What’s up?
I made you something.
He hands him a necklace with a beaded frog in the middle. He
takes it and looks at it.
Found the materials in the art
room. I hope you like it.
It’s a frog. It’s kind of funny.
Well, I know it’s a bit odd but...a
frog symbolizes healing. I know you
and your family are going through a
tough time right now. So, think of
it as a good luck charm. And, you
know, whenever you’re feeling
down...or defeated...time heals all
wounds..and stops for nothing.
Pause. Phoenix smiles.
Thankyou. I like it.
Sure. I want to make everyone one,
but it’s going to take some time.
Really thoughtful. I’ll be keeping
She smiles, and walks away. Phoenix and Craig turn the
opposite way, and continue walking as Phoenix lights up a
INT. MAIN OFFICE.
Jaxon, Trevor, Michael and Olivia are in the main office in
a group circle on a meeting desk.
So what should we do...with
We need to burn it.
What? We can’t burn his body.
That’s what we’ve been doing with
the bodies, so why not?
It wouldn’t be fair to Sarah. Maybe
we should ask what she wants. It
was her father.
Not to be rude but she hasn’t said
one word ever since he died. Going
to her would probably be the last
thing I would do.
Why not bury out?
With those army of things out
there? We know what only one bite
could do. Too risky.
Well if we can’t burn it, we damn
sure can’t leave it in here, and if
we can’t bury the body what do we
Should we just...toss it?
Toss the body? Where?
In a river. In the woods. Anywhere.
You can’t get much low than that.
It’s not low at all. It’s an
alternate option, since we don’t
have much to begin with.
Alright, let’s try and work
something out. We obviously can’t
have a funeral...but...I think I
have an idea.
We feed the body to the infected.
Everyone is shocked by his answer.
Now wait, just listen. It is smart
to ask Sarah what she wants.
But...we need to think long term.
Long term about feeding those
things out there?
Listen. We know for a fact who ever
is infected feeds from the
living...they’re all out there, not
attacking each other, or
animals...they want us. And with us
being trapped in this school being
surrounded by those things isn’t
safe. We need a plan.
Do you have one?
Yes. We lure most of the infected
away using Mitchel’s body as bait.
Once then we can use vehicles to
get everyone the hell out of here.
That doesn’t sound too bad.
Hold on a minute. It’s a good plan,
yes but we only have two cop
vehicles. Also, where are we going
to go? We don’t know what place is
infested with these things and
The police station about 10 or 15
miles from here still has some
vehicles. I saw it passing by the
other day. We need to get to those
Jaxon, that sounds crazy.
It’s the smartest thing to do. Look
what we’re going through. The
infected broke in, we lost so many
people...we need a safe and secure
place. We can even stay at the
police station if we have to. We’re
running low on food, water,
supplies...staying here just won’t
Sounds good to me.
But...before we do that, I really
want to ask Sarah what she wants to
do with her dad’s body. It’s fair.
I know if it was someone I loved, I
would want the same. We’re getting
the vehicles regardless.
When did you want to head out and
Today we make sure we’re prepared.
We will go out on the run tomorrow.
Me, you and Trevor. I can ask Damon
if he wants to help as well.
I’m coming too.
Why not? You should be thanking me
right now. I’m offering you guys
It’ll just make me feel more
comfortable if you were to stay
And it would make me feel more
comfortable if you guys had more
help. I’ll go.
You heard the gal. She wants to go.
Alright. We get everything prepared
for tomorrow. We need to get ammo
set up, bring bags, and prepare for
anything...because there’s still a
chance we won’t make it back.
They all nod.
