JESSI falls into the waterfall. KYLE is shocked.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
It was one of the most terrifying
days of my life. I wondered if
people who had miserable lives did
these things for selfishness or to
get rid of negative thoughts.
                                                            
Kyle runs down worried.
                                                            
                       KYLE
      (screaming worried)
Jessi! Where are you?!
                                                            
Kyle hears footsteps behind him. He turns around. It's TOM
FOSS.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
I saw what happened. Don't worry.
She'll be okay.
                                                            
                       KYLE
How do you know that?
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
She's Jessi.
                                                            
Pause.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
Anyway, we got to get you home.
The Tragers are onto you. They've
figured out DECLAN is working with
us. Fortunetaly, that's all they
know...for now.
                                                            
                       KYLE
We need to tell them the truth.
It's gotten too far.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
No! We can't tell them anything no
matter how much pain this has
caused!
                                                            

2.

Kyle looks down knowing Tom Foss is right. They walk to Tom
Foss' car.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
Lets go.
                                                            
 
INT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
The Tragers are sitting down in the living room. They hear
the door open. NICOLE gets up to see who it is.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Kyle...where have you been?
                                                            
                       KYLE
I already told you. I was with
Jessi.
                                                            
Kyle enters the dining room with Nichole. LORI gets up and
walks to Kyle.
                                                            
                       LORI
What were you doing with her?
Don't you know she's the one who
hit me?
                                                            
                       KYLE
I had to take care of something.
                                                            
                       LORI
But why with her?
                                                            
                       KYLE
It's a long story. I can't
explain. I'm sorry. I have to go.
                                                            
Kyle leaves the dining room and walks to his bedroom. Lori
is in disbelief.
                                                            
Kyle sits down in his bathtub and closes his eyes. He hears
Jessi's voice. He opens his eyes to see Jessi. The room was
abnormally dark.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
Was this my imagination or was she
really there? Last time this
happened I was in a deep sleep
thinking of where Jessi was. Never
in my life did I believe I can see
people who weren't actually there.
                                                            

3.

                       JESSI
Tom Foss was right. I am alive.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I didn't find you after you fell.
Where were you?
                                                            
A vision of ADAM appears behind Jessi.
                                                            
                       JESSI
I ran out of the woods. I went to
the park. It was the first time I
saw your face.
                                                            
                       ADAM
Don't find her. She'll betray you.
                                                            
Kyle looked confused.
                                                            
                       JESSI
Find me and we can defeat Madacorp
together.
                                                            
                       ADAM
Don't listen to her!
                                                            
                       JESSI
Yes listen to me!
                                                            
Kyle's head started to hurt. He got white flashes and
blacked out falling to the floor.
                                                            
END TEASER
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.

START ACT ONE
                                                            
STEPHEN and Nichole run into Kyle's bedroom. Nichole lifts
up Kyle's body. Kyle slowly opens his eyes. The room is back
to its normal state.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Kyle, are you alright?
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
What happened to you?
                                                            
Kyle starts to stand up along with Stephen and Nichole.
                                                            

4.

                       KYLE
I blacked out. But I'm fine now. I
have to go to the park.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
You're not going anywhere.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Yeah, not after that hard fall.
                                                            
JOSH runs into Kyle's bedroom.
                                                            
                       JOSH
I just heard a hell of a big
thump. What was that?
                                                            
                       NICOLE
It was Kyle.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Dude you gotta show me how to do
that later. Anyways, I gotta go.
I'm taking my oldies car to the
hospital. Andy is doing chemo.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Josh, can you drive me to the
park?
                                                            
                       JOSH
Yeah sure.
                                                            
Kyle leaves with Josh. He gives a quick glance to Nicole.
The front door slams shut.
                                                            
 
INT. MADACORP - NIGHT
                                                            
BALLANTINE is in the control room with BRIAN and EMILY.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
How did Tom Foss escape?
                                                            
                       EMILY
We don't know.
                                                            
                       BRIAN
In order to have escaped, he
must've stolen something from one
of us. We're the only ones who can
let him out free.
                                                            

5.

                       BALLANTINE
What are you exactly implying?
                                                            
                       BRIAN
It was one of us.
                                                            
Ballantine gives a mean glare to Brian.
                                                            
                       EMILY
It may not be that simple. Another
co-worker could've stolen it.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Stephen Trager.
                                                            
 
INT. JOSH'S CAR - NIGHT
                                                            
Josh parks the car. Kyle opens the door and quickly takes
off his seatbelt.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Woah! What's been gotten you in
such a hurry?
                                                            
                       KYLE
It's nothing. I'll talk to you
later. Pick me up at 9.
                                                            
                       JOSH
You got it bro.
                                                            
Kyle closes the door. Josh drives off.
                                                            
 
EXT. PARK - NIGHT
                                                            
Kyle walks down to the swings. He sees Jessi sitting on the
bench alone, crying. Kyle sits down next to her.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
My dream was right. Jessi was
here. Alive and safe.
                                                            
                       JESSI
You found me.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I want to help you.
                                                            
                       JESSI
You can't. If I go along with you,
Madacorp will find me.
                                                            

6.

                       KYLE
I realize that you already have
stored information in your memory.
But you have to get over that.
                                                            
                       JESSI
How can I?! There's no way to get
rid of them!
                                                            
                       KYLE
You have to trust me.
                                                            
                       JESSI
No!
                                                            
Jessi gets up and leaves. Kyle stands up.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Listen to me! We can do this
together!
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
I felt a sudden burn come over me
as Jessi walked away. I needed to
find more answers. I was alone and
desperate. Adam said about how
Jessi betrayed me. He was right.
And now it was my turn to solve
the questions.
                                                            
 
INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Josh walked in to see ANDY laying on her bed. Andy smiled.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Where's G-force?
                                                            
                       ANDY
They don't allow it in the
hospital silly. Here, take this
chair.
                                                            
Andy pointed to the chair. Josh sat down.
                                                            
                       JOSH
So...how's the chemo?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Not great. They gave me this bowl
to throw up in. Like I really want
to puke.
                                                            

7.

                       JOSH
I see. You know, this can't be
easy.
                                                            
                       ANDY
It's not. Laying here feeling
sick...it's horrible. I can't go
anywhere.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Yeah well, you have me here.
                                                            
Andy laughed.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Do you need anything?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Not at the moment.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Hmm okay. So...
                                                            
                       ANDY
I can tell you're bored. You can
just leave if you want to. Nothing
spectacular to see.
                                                            
                       JOSH
No. I want to be here. It's just
that-
                                                            
                       ANDY
You don't want to touch my boobs
because there's nurses around.
                                                            
Josh becomes uncomfortable.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Right...
                                                            
                       ANDY
When I get out, you can touch them
as much as you want.
                                                            
                       JOSH
I hope so.
                                                            
A NURSE comes in.
                                                            
                       NURSE
Andy, we'll need to check how
you're doing.
                                                            

8.

                       ANDY
Okay. Josh you gotta go.
                                                            
                       NURSE
He can stay.
                                                            
                       JOSH
No it's fine. I'll leave. See ya.
                                                            
Josh leaves.
                                                            
 
INT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Nichole and Stephen are sitting on the couch. The phone
rings. Nichole goes to pick up the phone.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Stephen, Ballantine wants to talk
to you.
                                                            
Stephen gets up. Nicole hands the phone to Stephen.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Hello?
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Hi Stephen. I was wondering if you
can come in tonight. We need to
talk.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
What's this about?
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
It's important. I can't tell you
on the phone. Just please come in.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Alright. I'll be there in 10
minutes.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Great. Bye.
                                                            
Stephen hangs up the phone. He puts his jacket on.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
What did he say?
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
He needs me over there right now.
He said we need to talk.
                                                            

9.

                       NICOLE
About what?
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
He didn't say.
                                                            
Stephen opens the front door.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Bye hunny.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Bye.
                                                            
Stephen gives Nicole a kiss on the cheek and closes the
door.
                                                            
 
INT. JOSH'S CAR - NIGHT
                                                            
Josh drives over to the park. He doesn't see Kyle. He drives
off confused.
                                                            
 
EXT. MADACORP - NIGHT
                                                            
Kyle is walking on the sidewalk. He sees Stephen going into
the parking lot. Kyle hides behind the side of the building.
                                                            
 
INT. MADACORP - NIGHT
                                                            
Stephen is inside the lobby. He sees Emily.
                                                            
                       EMILY
Follow me.
                                                            
Stephen enters Ballantine's office. He sits down in a chair.
                                                            
                       EMILY
Ballantine will be with you in one
moment.
                                                            
 
EXT. MADACORP - NIGHT
                                                            
Kyle gets out of his hiding place. He sees Stephen is gone
but his car is still there. He walks around trying to find a
back entrance.
                                                            
 

10.

INT. MADACORP - NIGHT
                                                            
Ballantine walks in and sits down across from Stephen.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
I'm glad to see you made it.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
You said it was important so here
I am.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Indeed.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
So what's the news?
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
A man unnamed escaped Madacorp
with permission from one of our
co-workers the other day. He
wasn't allowed to go out. Have you
heard anything about it?
                                                            
Stephen became nervous.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Not that I know. What does this
have to do with me?
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Well as you know, you're one of
our co-workers.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
It wasn't me.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
What makes me think I will believe
you?
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
I'm a dedicated worker. I did
nothing wrong. How come you don't
question other workers?
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
I have my reasons.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Tell me.
                                                            
Stephen is angry. His fists tense up.
                                                            

11.

                       BALLANTINE
That remains confidential.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
I don't see the point in this. You
think it's me yet you won't even
tell me why. I'm leaving.
                                                            
Stephen begins to get up.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
      (yells)
Brian, Emily!
                                                            
Brian and Emily push his shoulders down forcing him to sit
back down.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Now Stephen, we are going to
finish this. You're not allowed to
leave until I allow you to.
                                                            
 
INT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Nichole is on the labtop. The door opens. It's Josh. Nichole
gets up and walks over to him.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Josh, have you seen your dad?
                                                            
                       JOSH
No. I thought he was here.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
He headed to Madacorp. I'm
worried. He's been gone for
awhile.
                                                            
                       JOSH
I'm scared to say the rest then.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
What is it?
                                                            
                       JOSH
Kyle has gone missing too. I drove
over to the park. No sign of him.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
This all seems odd.
                                                            

12.

                       JOSH
I tried calling his cell phone and
it's not working. I don't know
what's with him.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
I tried calling your dad's and the
same thing happened.
                                                            
Lori walks down the stairs.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Hey have you heard from dad or
Kyle?
                                                            
                       LORI
No why?
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Both have seemed to have gone
missing. However, your dad might
still be at Madacorp. It's been an
awefully long time.
                                                            
                       LORI
We should take a drive there.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Alright. I'll get my keys.

INT. MADACORP - NIGHT
                                                            
Stephen is still angry. Ballantine is leaning forward near
his face.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Can you please let me go? I have a
family waiting back home for me.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
I still have some questions I want
answered.
                                                            

13.

                       STEPHEN
Okay.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Have you witnessed any weird
activity going on around here?
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
What does this have to do with the
co-worker thing?
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
It has everything to do with it.
Please answer the question.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
I saw-
                                                            
Suddenly, Kyle walks into the room.
                                                            
                       KYLE
      (yells)
Stop it!
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Brian, get him!
                                                            
Brian lets go of Stephen's arm and goes after Kyle. Kyle
runs out of the room.
                                                            
Emily lets go of Stephen's arm by purpose.
                                                            
                       EMILY
      (whispers)
Go before Ballantine gets you!
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
But-
                                                            
                       EMILY
Just go!
                                                            
Stephen gets up and runs out of the room. Ballantine stands
up facing Emily.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
It was you.
                                                            
Emily tries to escape but Ballantine catches her arm. Emily
looks at Ballantine with a worried face.

EXT. MADACORP - NIGHT
                                                            
Kyle and Stephen are outside. Nichole's car enters the
parking lot.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
In my car!
                                                            
Kyle and Stephen go in the car and drive off.
                                                            
Brian is seen running outside.
                                                            
 
INT. NICOLE'S CAR - NIGHT
                                                            
                       NICOLE
What's he doing there?
                                                            
Nicole drives over to Brian and opens the window.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Brian?
                                                            
                       BRIAN
Oh hi Nichole.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
I thought you left.
                                                            
                       BRIAN
I decided to stay here.
                                                            
                       LORI
Mom get away from him. He's
obviously a bad guy if Kyle and
dad were running away from him.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Be quiet Lori.
                                                            
                       JOSH
I'm with Lori on this one.
                                                            
                       BRIAN
Kids...what do they know?
                                                            
                       LORI
Excuse me?
                                                            
                       NICOLE
I think we better get going. Bye
Brian. It was nice seeing you.
                                                            

15.

                       BRIAN
You too.
                                                            
Nicole closes the window and drives out.
                                                            
                       LORI
Next time listen to us.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Lori, it was just a coincidence we
saw him. That's all.
                                                            
                       JOSH
No way. Didn't you see the way he
chased dad and Kyle?
                                                            
                       NICOLE
We should'nt assume anything until
we know the whole story.
                                                            
 
INT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
The Tragers open the door and go in the house.
                                                            
                       JOSH
That was a long night.
                                                            
                       LORI
No kidding.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
We should sit down in the living
room and discuss this.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Good idea.
                                                            
They walk inside the living room to sit down.
                                                            
                       LORI
I think we should start with Kyle.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I have nothing to say.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Kyle, we need to hear your side of
the story. Why were you at
Madacorp?
                                                            

16.

                       KYLE
I told you I don't want to discuss
it.
                                                            
                       LORI
C'mon Kyle. First you're off with
Jessi and now you're at Madacorp
running out of the darn place.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
I'm not even sure we know the real
you anymore.
                                                            
                       KYLE
It's a long story. I can't tell
you guys anything because if I do,
you will all be in danger.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
I was in huge danger tonight.
Ballantine kept me there
forcefully. He had Brian and Emily
hold me down on a chair.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Really? What exactly did they
want?
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
They thought I let some guy escape
and asked me if I saw weird
activity going on.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
And what did you say?
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
I told them the truth.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
The truth. It was what I wanted to
tell them but couldn't.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
I said I didn't hear anything
about a guy escaping. I was going
to say I saw weird activity the
day before but then Kyle came and
saved me.
                                                            
                       KYLE
What weird activity did you see?
                                                            

17.

                       STEPHEN
Tom Foss was strapped on a chair.
It looked like they were torturing
him.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Whose they?
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Ballantine, Emily and Brian.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
My mind began to race with
millions of possibilities. Foss
knew he had to keep my secret
safe. In my heart, I knew Foss was
a good person and wouldn't do
anything of the sort.
                                                            
                       JOSH
This sounds like a game where you
gotta beat down the evil dudes.
                                                            
                       KYLE
It's no game.
                                                            
                       LORI
We should ask Declan. Too bad I
yelled at him earlier.
                                                            
                       KYLE
You should leave him out of this.
                                                            
                       LORI
He said he knew things about you
we don't even know.
                                                            
                       KYLE
But still, what if he gets
involved? He'll be in as much
danger as you guys.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
You keep bringing up danger.
What's so dangerous that you can't
even tell your own family?
                                                            
Kyle keeps quiet.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Forget it. He's not going to say
anything. I'm going to my room.
                                                            

18.

Josh leaves.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
My own family was turning on me.
They were my support system.
Without them, I didn't have any.
                                                            
                       LORI
I'm leaving.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Me too.
                                                            
Lori and Stephen leave.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Kyle, you know you can tell me
anything.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I know.
                                                            
Nicole leaves.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
My hope was lost. I had nowhere to
go.
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.

INT. AMANDA'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
AMANDA and Kyle are packing up boxes in her room.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
It was nice of you to come over
and help out.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I wanted to.
                                                            
Amanda and Kyle each drop off a box. They sit down on her
bed.
                                                            

19.

                       KYLE (V.O)
Amanda was the one person I can
count on to make me feel better.
But she was leaving today for New
York for what can be forever.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
I'm going to miss having you
around.
                                                            
                       KYLE
We can write each other letters.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
It won't be the same.
                                                            
                       KYLE
You'll be fine.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
How do you know for sure?
                                                            
                       KYLE
I just do.
                                                            
CAROL enters the room.
                                                            
                       CAROL
The truck is here to take your
things.
                                                            
Amanda looks at Kyle.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
I guess this is goodbye.
                                                            
                       KYLE
For now.
                                                            
                       CAROL
I'll be downstairs.
                                                            
Amanda looks at Carol.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Okay mom.
                                                            
Amanda looks back at Kyle. Carol leaves.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Promise me you won't cheat on me
with Jessi.
                                                            

20.

                       KYLE
I promise.
                                                            
Kyle and Amanda get up and leave the room.
                                                            
 
EXT. AMANDA'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Kyle and Amanda are holding hands walking together to the
truck. All the Tragers are there.
                                                            
                       LORI
I'm totally gonna miss you. Call
me?
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Don't worry. I will.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
You be good.
                                                            
Amanda chuckles.
                                                            
The truck driver walks over.
                                                            
                       TRUCK DRIVER
All done.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
Those 2 simple words left me in
sadness. Amanda was about to leave
fulfilling her dream while I was
still pondering about mine.
                                                            
Amanda and Kyle look at each other. They give a long hug.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
      (whispers)
I love you. Goodbye.
                                                            
                       KYLE
      (whispers back)
I love you too. Bye.
                                                            
They let go. Amanda gives a quick peck on Kyle's lips. She
waves goodbye and goes in Carol's car.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
It was the last time I was going
to see Amanda for a long time. All
the words I could've said I
didn't.
                                                            

21.

Kyle starts to cry.
                                                            
                       LORI
Aw Kyle. She'll come back.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
It wasn't that easy. She was my
companion and I was hers.
                                                            
It starts to rain. The Tragers go in the house except for
Kyle. Kyle stands looking for the car to return.
                                                            
 
INT. MADACORP - DAY
                                                            
Emily is on the chair. Ballantine and Brian are standing
next to her.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Why did you do it? Why did you
help that filthy trash?
                                                            
                       EMILY
He needed my help.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
You went against the company you
work for. How stupid can you be?
                                                            
Emily doesn't answer.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Brian, will you please start up
the chair?
                                                            
                       BRIAN
No. I've realized what you have
been doing is inhumane. You're
torturing live human beings. I
will not do that favor for you
sir.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Fine, then I will. You're both
fired.
                                                            
Ballantine goes up to the control room. Brian tries to help
Emily get out.
                                                            
                       EMILY
Aaaaaah!
                                                            

22.

                       BRIAN
Ballantine!
                                                            
Brian runs to the control room.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Get out of here or I'll call
security on you.
                                                            
Brian tries to press the button. Ballantine pushes him off.
Brian falls becoming unconcious. Ballantine calls security.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Now where were we?

Nicole walks over to Kyle.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
We're having lunch. Want to come
in?
                                                            
                       KYLE
I'd rather stay here.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Look Kyle, I know there's probably
so many things on your mind. How
about we talk it over inside?
                                                            
                       KYLE
You don't understand.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Have you forgotten I'm also a
social worker?
                                                            
                       KYLE
It's different.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
How so?
                                                            

23.

                       KYLE
It just is. I can't explain it.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Well, you need to talk to somebody
at least.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I do have someone.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Who?
                                                            
Josh comes outside.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Yo! The pancakes are getting cold!
                                                            
Nicole turns around to Josh.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
I'm coming.
                                                            
Josh goes inside. Nicole turns back to Kyle.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
C'mon.
                                                            
Nicole puts her arm around Kyle's shoulder. They walk
inside.
                                                            
 
EXT. MADACORP - DAY
                                                            
Jessi is walking around the building. She sees a man.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
Jessi come over here.
                                                            
                       JESSI
Who are you?
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
I'll explain later. Come with me.
                                                            
Jessi walks over to Tom Foss.
                                                            
                       JESSI
I won't go unless you tell me who
you are.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
Alright. Here-
                                                            

24.

Tom Foss takes out a paper from a folder.
                                                            
                       JESSI
It's him.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
I got Kyle's file awhile back. I'm
his mentor.
                                                            
Jessi looks shocked.
                                                            
 
INT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Kyle is sitting in his bathtub. The window slides open. It's
Declan.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
Help me out here.
                                                            
Kyle gets up and helps Declan into the room.
                                                            
                       KYLE
What did you tell the Tragers?
                                                            
                       DECLAN
I was going to get to that.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Okay so...what did you say?
                                                            
                       DECLAN
I didn't tell them a lot. I said
the place where we went camping
was Zzyx. Tom Foss came then. I
left after being yelled at by
Lori.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I have to talk to Tom Foss.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
I'll come.
                                                            
                       KYLE
No. You stay here.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
If Lori sees me again, she's gonna
freak.
                                                            

25.

                       KYLE
Fine. I'll tell you everything
that happened in your car.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
Alright.
                                                            
Declan and Kyle go out through the window.

I need to burrow your phone.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
Where's your phone?
                                                            
                       KYLE
After I make this call, I'll tell
you.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
Who are you calling?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Foss.
                                                            
Declan hands Kyle the cell phone. Kyle dials the number.
Foss picks up.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Foss, where are you? I need to see
you.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
I have Jessi with me. We're in my
abandoned place.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Okay good. I'll be there soon. I
have Declan with me.
                                                            
Kyle hangs up and gives back the cell phone to Declan.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Head to Foss' abandoned place.

INT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Nicole walks into Kyle's bedroom. She sees the window open.
She is fustrated. Stephen comes in.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Where's Kyle?
                                                            
                       NICOLE
He's walked out again.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
It's 10pm at night. Where would he
go?
                                                            
                       NICOLE
I'm pretty sure there's no parties
going on tonight.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
What about Madacorp?
                                                            
                       NICOLE
After getting chased out, it
doesn't seem likely.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
I give up.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
We can't stop looking. He has to
be somewhere.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
The problem is we don't know
where.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
You're right.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
I wonder where Emily is.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
What's this have to do with her?
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
She helped me escape Madacorp.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
And?
                                                            

27.

                       STEPHEN
I haven't heard back from her
since.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Lately, everything about Madacorp
seems to be wacky.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Are you getting suspicious? I am.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Yeah. I mean, they bought out your
company, hired you, forcefully ask
you for answers, and never hear
from Emily again. Something's not
right.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
It's a puzzle waiting to be
figured out.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Sounds like it.
                                                            
 
INT. ABANDONED PLACE - NIGHT
                                                            
Kyle and Declan walk around looking for Tom Foss.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
Did he tell you where he was
exactly?
                                                            
                       KYLE
No. He just said to come here.
                                                            
Tom Foss and Jessi appear.
                                                            
                       KYLE
There they are.
                                                            
They walk over to them.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I have a question.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
Jessi told me you saw Adam Baylin
in a house inside the woods.
                                                            

28.

                       KYLE
It's something I don't get. If
Adam isn't dead, then whose ashes
were in the pot?
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
I don't know.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
You're lying.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
I'm not lying. Whoevers ashes it
was is dead now so it shouldn't
matter.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Everything matters. Because of
you, I'm being pulled away from my
own family.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
In order for our secrets to be
kept, we had to have consequences.
                                                            
                       JESSI
Do I have consequences?
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
Yes. Like Kyle, you must keep your
secret and not tell the Tragers.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
Sounds like brother and sister.
                                                            
                       KYLE
It does. But I can't go on any
longer holding back secrets.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
You must!
                                                            
                       KYLE
It has been long enough.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
You'll be in danger then.
                                                            
                       KYLE
You can trust them. They are my
support system. They are there to
help me.
                                                            

29.

                       DECLAN
Listen to Kyle. Give him a chance.
All he wants is someone to be
there for him.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
No! I can't afford losing you.
                                                            
                       KYLE
But my family doesn't even know
who I am anymore. I don't want to
become a stranger to them.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
You won't!
                                                            
                       KYLE
You can't relate. You have no
family.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
I did have one.
                                                            
                       KYLE
But not now.
                                                            
Pause.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
Okay. I'll let you tell the
Tragers but you can't tell anyone
else.
                                                            
                       KYLE
You know me.
                                                            
                       JESSI
I'm sorry Kyle.
                                                            
                       KYLE
For what?
                                                            
                       JESSI
I took information from you. I
tried to kill myself but I
couldn't.
                                                            
                       KYLE
You couldn't help it.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
Madacorp probably programmed
something inside her so she can
take needed information from your
            (MORE)

30.

                       TOM FOSS (cont'd)
memory.
                                                            
                       KYLE
That explains why Adam Bailen said
Jessi would betray me.
                                                            
                       TOM FOSS
How did Adam contact you?
                                                            
                       KYLE
I don't know. It just happened.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
I think our main thing we need to
do right now is hide Jessi away
from Madacorp. If they catch her,
we're dead.
                                                            
                       KYLE
You're right. Lets go.
                                                            
END ACT THREE
                                                            
                                         FADE OUT.

INT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Lori walks into the living room. Stephen and Nicole are on
the couch.
                                                            
                       LORI
Mom, dad. Did you know Kyle's
bedroom window is open?
                                                            
Nicole and Stephen get up and walk over to Lori.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Yes we did.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
I think it's time to call the
police.
                                                            
                       LORI
What would the police do? I mean
they'd probably just put up signs
saying missing boy.
                                                            

31.

                       NICOLE
Not if we get the whole town to
look for him.
                                                            
Kyle opens the door and enters the living room. Everyone is
looking at him.
                                                            
 
INT. MADACORP - NIGHT
                                                            
Brian Taylor is in a cell. Ballantine is looking at him.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
I told you ordered commands but
you didn't listen.
                                                            
                       BRIAN
It was wrong what you were doing.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
What about the time you shot Adam
Bailen? Wasn't that wrong?
                                                            
                       BRIAN
I regret it.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
I bet you do.
                                                            
                       BRIAN
Can you just please get me out of
here?
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Why? Because you disobeyed
commands?
                                                            
                       BRIAN
Listen. I know I've messed up big
time. But you can't stop me from
learning my mistakes.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
I'm teaching you yours.
                                                            
Ballantine puts his arm through the bars and punches Brian
in the face. Brian falls with his nose bleeding.
                                                            
                       BALLANTINE
Nice and silent. Exactly how it
should be.

INT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Kyle is in his bathtub. He closes his eyes laying down.
                                                            
                       ADAM
Kyle wake up. Wake up.
                                                            
Kyle opens his eyes. He sees Adam and gets out of bathtub
standing up.
                                                            
                       ADAM
Kyle, you told the Tragers your
secret.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I had to.
                                                            
                       ADAM
I created you to help the greater
good of mankind. With people
knowing your abilities, they can
find your weaknesses.
                                                            
                       KYLE
My family won't do any harm to me.
                                                            
                       ADAM
Are you sure about that?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Yes.
                                                            
                       ADAM
You look confused.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I am. How can you be here when I
saw your body in the woods?
                                                            
                       ADAM
I'm not dead.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Then whose ashes were those?
                                                            
                       ADAM
No one's.
                                                            
                       KYLE
It was fake?
                                                            

33.

                       ADAM
In simpler terms, that is correct.
Did you find the picture in the
box?
                                                            
                       KYLE
I did. It was in Zzyx. Was that
you?
                                                            
                       ADAM
It was.
                                                            
                       KYLE
And that girl standing next to
you-
                                                            
                       ADAM
My girlfriend, SARAH.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Do you know what happened to her?
                                                            
                       ADAM
Sorry to say, she's been missing
for 10 years.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Where did you last see her?
                                                            
                       ADAM
At a restaurant. We were having
lunch together and she told me she
had to go somewhere.
                                                            
                       KYLE
And you don't know where?
                                                            
                       ADAM
No. It's been a mystery ever
since.
                                                            
Kyle sits down on a chair.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I don't get it.
                                                            
                       ADAM
Neither do I. I've been looking
for her nonstop with no luck.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I can't imagine what would happen
if Amanda went missing.
                                                            

34.

                       ADAM
Who is she?
                                                            
                       KYLE
My girlfriend. She left for New
York the other day.
                                                            
                       ADAM
Is she coming back?
                                                            
                       KYLE
I hope so.
                                                            
                       ADAM
You have a kind soul. I would be
surprised if she didn't.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Thanks.
                                                            
Adam smiles.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Not for that. It's just, I never
got to thank you for bringing me
life.
                                                            
                       ADAM
Well you're welcome.
                                                            
Kyle smiles back.
                                                            
 
EXT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Josh throws the basketball. It misses the hoop. Kyle enters.
Josh catches the basketball and dribbles.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Hey, you wanna throw down some
hoops?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Not really. I'm tired.
                                                            
                       JOSH
It's okay. You can watch me dunk
them in.
                                                            
Josh throws the basketball. It hits the backboard missing.
Josh catches it.
                                                            

35.

                       KYLE
      (sarcastically)
Nice shot.
                                                            
                       JOSH
I'm workin' on it.
                                                            
Lori enters.
                                                            
                       LORI
I called Declan.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Did he say anything good?
                                                            
                       LORI
Kyle, how can you have Declan hold
your secret for the longest time
but not tell any of us?
                                                            
                       KYLE
He's my friend.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Hello? What about us?
                                                            
                       KYLE
You guys are family. I couldn't do
that to you.
                                                            
                       LORI
It's not like keeping a secret is
gonna kill us. C'mon Kyle.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I told you already. It wasn't the
right time.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
Right time for what?
                                                            
Kyle turns around.
                                                            
                       LORI
Nothing.
                                                            
Lori and Josh leave.
                                                            
                       KYLE
What are you doing here?
                                                            

36.

                       CHARLIE
Oh, I was doing a jog around the
neighborhood. I wanted to see what
was going on.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Nothing important is being said.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
You say anything about Amanda?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Why do you care?
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
I don't know. I'm checkin' up.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Amanda went to New York.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
You still going good with her?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Yeah?
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
How about that Jessi chick? Got
some of her?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Charlie, can you just go?
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
Ah! So you did do a little of her?
                                                            
                       KYLE
You don't know what you're talking
about.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
Word gets around at school.
                                                            
Pause.
                                                            
                       CHARLIE
I better get going. Some girls are
waiting for me at the pool.
                                                            
Charlie jogs.
                                                            
 

37.

INT. TRAGERS' HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Kyle enters his bedroom. Nicole is holding the box.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
What's a picture of you and Jessi
doing in here?
                                                            
                       KYLE
It's not me.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Then who is it?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Adam and his girlfriend Sarah.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
What is it doing here?
                                                            
                       KYLE
I found it at Zzyx.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Kyle, I don't like how you're not
telling us everything. It makes me
think you have other things you're
hiding.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I don't know all the details.
That's the problem.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
At least tell us when you find
something new.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I will.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
It was hard to make a promise I'll
probably break. I still didn't
uncover my whole past. Yet.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Do you have any other things that
you didn't tell us?
                                                            
                       KYLE
As far as I know, Sarah has been
missing for 10 years.
                                                            

38.

                       NICOLE
How's that possible?
                                                            
                       KYLE
I don't know.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
There must have been a reason why.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I asked Adam and he didn't even
know.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Hmmm.
                                                            
Stephen comes in with a phone.
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Amanda wants to talk to you.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
We'll leave you alone.
                                                            
Nicole and Stephen leave.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Hey Amanda?
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Oh wow. It's so nice to hear your
voice.
                                                            
                       KYLE
How have you been? Is everything
fine?
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Yeah, it's going great. I've made
a couple of friends. Of course
they're not as sweet as you but
you know...
                                                            
                       KYLE
I wish I can visit.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
You can. Pick a day and come. I'll
be waiting for you.
                                                            
                       KYLE
I'd like to go next weekend.
                                                            

39.

                       AMANDA
The only thing left is to ask your
parents. I'm sure they'll let you
come.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Yeah.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Listen I gotta go. Maybe I'll see
you next week?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Definetely.
                                                            
                       AMANDA
Alright bye. Take care.
                                                            
                       KYLE
You too.
                                                            
Kyle hangs up.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
The sound of music suddenly came
to my ear. It was as if Amanda was
playing piano right near me. I
missed her.
                                                            
Lori is playing guitar on her bed in her bedroom. Declan
enters Lori's room through the window. Lori stops playing.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
I know what your thinking. I
should've told you everything.
                                                            
                       LORI
Duh! I mean, how could you?
                                                            
                       DECLAN
I'm sorry. I wasn't trying to hurt
you.
                                                            
                       LORI
You did. Congratulations.
                                                            
Lori starts to cry.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
You know it was Kyle who told me
to keep it secret. I tried to be a
good friend.
                                                            

40.

                       LORI
So now you listen to what Kyle
says.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
That's not true Lori! I kept it a
secret because I cared about you
and your family! If anyone ever
found out about anything, you
would be dead! Don't tell me I'm a
bad person. I'm not. I did what
was right and that was to protect
you.
                                                            
Lori gets up from her bed and walks over to Declan.
                                                            
                       LORI
You did it for me?
                                                            
                       DECLAN
Yes! For your whole family!
                                                            
Lori kisses Declan.
                                                            
                       LORI
Thank you.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
It wasn't easy.
                                                            
                       LORI
I'm sure it wasn't. I'm sorry for
attacking you.
                                                            
                       DECLAN
It's okay.
                                                            
They kiss again.
                                                            
 
INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Josh walks in. Andy is sitting on the edge of the bed.
                                                            
                       JOSH
Hey.
                                                            
Andy turns around to Josh. Josh sits down next to Andy.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Hey. What do you have there?
                                                            
Josh smiles.
                                                            

41.

                       JOSH
Stuff.
                                                            
Josh takes out tapping shoes.
                                                            
                       ANDY
What are those for?
                                                            
                       JOSH
So we can tap together.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Okay?
                                                            
                       JOSH
Alright look, it's kind of
something between my dad and I.
                                                            
                       ANDY
Oh okay..surrre.
                                                            
                       JOSH
I got one more thing.
                                                            
Josh takes out a red bra. Andy grabs it.
                                                            
                       ANDY
No way!
                                                            
                       JOSH
Yup! A C size bra just for you.
Small enough for your boobs and
big enough for me to grab them.
                                                            
                       ANDY
I like it. Very thoughtful of you.
Made my day 10 times better.
                                                            
                       JOSH
You wanna try it on now?
                                                            
                       ANDY
You're not scared of anyone seeing
us anymore?
                                                            
                       JOSH
Nope. I learned secrets are gonna
be found out anyway so why not
just tell the world now?
                                                            
                       ANDY
Good idea. I'll put it on.
                                                            

42.

Andy gets up and walks to the bathroom with the bra.
                                                            
 
INT. TRAGER'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Kyle enters the kitchen. He sees Nicole.
                                                            
                       KYLE
Mom.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Yes Kyle?
                                                            
                       KYLE
Can I visit Amanda next weekend?
                                                            
                       NICOLE
Yeah sure. We can plan it later.
                                                            
The doorbell rings.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
I wonder who that can be.
                                                            
Kyle, Nicole and Stephen go to the door. Kyle opens it.
                                                            
                       SARAH
Hello. I'm looking for my daughter
Jessi. My name's Sarah.
                                                            
Nicole looks at Stephen.
                                                            
                       NICOLE
I think the puzzle is finally
complete.
                                                            
                       KYLE (V.O)
My thoughts have led me to a
conclusion; no matter how
secretive we are for the people we
love[Declan hugging Lori] or being
the strength of two people
bonding[Andy wearing red bra with
Josh smiling], it is the destiny
we chose that brings us all
together[back to doorway scene]..
                                                            
                       STEPHEN
Come in.
                                                            
Sarah walks in. Nicole closes the door.
                                                            
END ACT FOUR
                                                            


FADE OUT.
