INT. ROOM - NIGHT A computer screen glows in the depth of the room, lighting up the tiny area from which it sits. Another light illuminating the room is a fish tank sitting at the back corner, underneath a few shelves sitting on metal racks holding it up. There’s a tiny map on a pin board of the Roman Empire era. Pictures cover the map except for one spot. The uncovered spot is part of the key of the map, with a box colored orange and next to it saying: Roman Empire, 180 A.D. The fish swim in circles through the bubbles racing up towards the surface, stirring up the water. Sitting on the shelves above the fish tank are tiny model cars. The windows are closed curtains are shut halfway, showing that it’s dark and calm outside. A light breeze flows through the room, blowing the curtains. The breeze moves towards the back of the room where the computer sits on a large, wooden desk. The wind blows a bouncy ball sitting on a few books onto the keyboard on the ‘Enter’ button. The mouse had been clicked on the Internet Explorer icon, and once the bouncy ball lands on the enter button, it opens the Internet, opening up to the homepage. The homepage shows numerous amounts of information, such as the weather, E-mails, and a calendar marked with events. There is a section titled: “This day in history.” Beneath it, the top event is titled: “Tacoma Narrows Bridge Collapses,” with a brief description about it beneath it. A magazine sits on the desk next to the keyboard. The breeze blows it open, the pages flipping over rather quickly. The breeze stops it at a certain page showing the Golden Gate Bridge, with a hole smack dab in the middle of it. The sun in the picture casts a fiery glow over it. The breeze continues to blow through the room, ruffling papers and stirring dust. One of the bolts loosens from the racks holding the shelf with the model cars up. The bolt falls out and lands in the fish tank where the fish begin nipping at it in curiosity. A model of a skeleton hangs in another corner of the room by a piece of string, twisting back and forth, an evil grin on its face. Car lights shine through one of the windows, and the light crawls across the wall. The light hits the skeleton, casting a shadow——but it’s not the skeleton’s shadow. It’s in the form of Death, with a scythe in its hand. Another breeze comes through the room. The rack holding the shelf with model cars breaks off the wall, landing in the fish tank. The end of the shelf lands on the edge of the tank, the model cars rolling into the water, splashing water out of the tank. The fish innocently nip at them. The splashing wakes up a teenage boy, his hair sticking up in different places and bags under his eyes. This is @Lazarus+ (17). He grunts while sitting up, staring at the fish tank. Groaning, he stands up and walks to the fish tank, scratching his head and rubbing his eyes. Squatting down, he looks at the fish, who are now swimming joyfully through the water, not giving a care about the toy cars anymore. He taps the tank and the fish jump, but continue swimming. The breeze once again runs that area of the room, blowing @Lazarus+’s long hair. @Lazarus+ looks at his windows, confused since they are shut. He sniffs and pulls the shelf off the tank and sets it down on the chair. @Lazarus+ walks back to his bed and plumps down on it, almost immediately falling back asleep. And suddenly it’s... CUT TO: ...Daytime. @Lazarus+, still in the same position as when he fell on the bed, wakes up, blinded by the light. He gets out of his bed and stretches, letting out a big, long yawn. He quickly gets dressed gets his hair neat before somebody knocks at his door. @Lazarus+ Hold one second! The knocking continues. @Lazarus+ lets out an irritated sigh and walks to the door. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) I said hold on——! He opens the door and sees @painseries (17), his black hair spiked up, a very dark green jacket, baggy pants, and black hobo gloves. @painseries That’s was more than a second. 2. @Lazarus+ (Letting him in) How’d you even get in my house? @painseries Your mom let me in. Hurry up and get your bag. @Lazarus+ Don’t start making this a habit. She’s not going to let you in every time you knock on the door. Why are you even here? @painseries I need a ride. @Lazarus+ What happened to your crap-mobile? @painseries The engine’s dead. The damn thing’s a pile of shit. @Lazarus+ makes one last touch to his hair. @painseries (CONT’D) Will you stop grooming and get your things ready? @Lazarus+ God, you sound like my mom. Hold on. He turns off the bathroom light and grabs his backpack, hanging it over his shoulder. They walk out. INT. KITCHEN - DAY ERIN DAILY (48), silky brown hair and looks young for her age, sits at the table with coffee in on hand and a newspaper in the other. @Lazarus+ and @painseries walk in. ERIN There’re biscuits on the counter with some sausage. @painseries, you can help yourself to anything. @painseries Thanks, Mrs. Daily. 3. @Lazarus+ Where’s Dad? ERIN He had to go to work early. Eat. @Lazarus+ takes a biscuit and two sausages, kisses his mom goodbye, and walks out the door, but she stops them. ERIN (CONT’D) That’s not you’re having is it? @Lazarus+ Mom, we’re going to be late. ERIN You have 45 minutes until school starts! @Lazarus+ Yeah, but still, it’s better than being too late, isn’t it? Erin gives a playful glare to @Lazarus+. She shrugs. ERIN I hate you. @Lazarus+ It’s because I’m your son isn’t it? ERIN I’ll see you after school. @painseries By Mrs. Daily. She waves to them as they shut the door. EXT. HOUSE/TRUCK @Lazarus+ unlocks the truck and the two get inside. INT. TRUCK @painseries looks at @Lazarus+ as he starts the car. @painseries What’s with the bags under your eyes? 4. @Lazarus+ I haven’t been getting enough sleep lately due to school. And last night I woke up finding the model cars my dad used to buy me in my fish tank. @painseries Shit man. Sucks for you. As @Lazarus+ pulls out of the driveway, he begins flipping through his CDs in the CD player. He comes across one where he thinks his music, but the child’s song “London Bridge Is Falling Down” begins to play. @Lazarus+ stares at the CD player, focused mainly on that. @painseries, looking out the side of the truck, jumps. @painseries (CONT’D) Watch out! @Lazarus+ slams on the brakes as a car zooms by behind the truck, having to swerve to avoid an accident, honking. @Lazarus+ watches the car fly down the road. @painseries (CONT’D) Dumbass drivers. (Rolls down window) This is a neighborhood you shithead! @painseries rolls the window back up and looks at @Lazarus+ whose hands are still gripping the steering wheel tightly, and “London Bridge is Falling Down” continues to play. @painseries (CONT’D) Hey, man, you all right? You gotta watch out for those kind of people. @Lazarus+ Yeah I’m fine. I just zoned out. @painseries You want me to drive? @Lazarus+ Yeah, over my dead body. @Lazarus+ backs all the way out of the driveway and rides down the street. 5. @painseries So, um, when are we listening to another song? @Lazarus+ realizes the London Bridge song is still playing and he quickly changes it to the radio. @Lazarus+ Sorry, my mom sometimes drives the truck with my little sister so she usually puts in this CD to soothe both of them down after a hard day’s work. @painseries It sucks having a 3-year-old sister doesn’t it? @Lazarus+ It sucks major ass. The song on the radio ends and the DJ comes on. RADIO DJ Okay time for our traffic report for you devils on the road. There has been a major pile up on Route 14 and a stall on Burton. @Lazarus+ Crap, we aren’t going to make it to school on time if we take Barton. @painseries There’s another way. I mean, it’s a little longer, but we’ll be there 5 minutes before school starts. @Lazarus+ Where? @painseries Mason Bridge. You know where that is, right? @Lazarus+ Yeah. @Lazarus+ takes a left turn. He comes to the end of the neighborhood street that opens up to the highway. Cars zoom by, and @Lazarus+ continually watches them go by, waiting for a gap. 6. A red Viper with its hood down stops next to @Lazarus+’s truck in the right turn lane. Two girls are sitting in it, laughing. @painseries Look who it is. @Lazarus+ looks out his window, looking at DAISY WREN (16) and LESLIE HOPE (17). Leslie honks, looking at @Lazarus+ and @painseries. Daisy looks over and smiles. @Lazarus+ rolls his window down. @Lazarus+ Hey girls. How’s it going? DAISY Hey Ty. @Lazarus+ Please don’t call me that. DAISY Why not? @Lazarus+’s too old-fashion. Oh, hey, do you know what Friday is? @painseries The day you start another period? DAISY Only you would like that, @painseries. But no, Friday’s my birthday. LESLIE You gonna get her something special, @Lazarus+? @Lazarus+ looks for a gap, but sees none. He looks back at the girls. @Lazarus+ Maybe. I might even plan something big out for her. DAISY You don’t have to get me anything, @Lazarus+...Unless you want to get me something. @painseries A restraining order? DAISY Bite me, @painseries. 7. LESLIE Hey, where are you two going? It’s faster this way. @Lazarus+ Burton’s blocked. We’re taking Mason Bridge. We’ll get there faster than Burton. LESLIE Are you sure? @painseries If you want to sit in traffic for half an hour, you can go right on ahead. @Lazarus+ sees a large gap. He takes it, and Leslie follows right behind. @Lazarus+ looks up at his rearview mirror and sees Leslie and Daisy right behind them. RADIO DJ All right let’s start our morning with a little bit of country! Hit it! Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” begins to play and @painseries turns it up. EXT. BRIDGE - DAY Two patrol cars sit on the side of the road, along with an ambulance and two cars that have smashed into each other. @Lazarus+, at the front of the line, stops as an officer holds up a stop sign to him, while the traffic on the opposite side drive past the wreck slowly. @Lazarus+ stares at the wreckage. One of the cars front had been crushed in like a can, while the other one’s side looks like crumpled up paper. There’s a knock on @painseries’s window. They turn and see CARA BROOKE (18) and @GloriousReader (18), both on their bikes. @painseries rolls down the window and Cara smiles. CARA Hey guys! @painseries A bike? 8. @GloriousReader (Pointing to traffic) This is why we avoid driving cars. Besides, drivers respect bikers. @painseries Sure, whatever you say. CARA Hey @Lazarus+ did you get the homework for history and astronomy? I had a doctor’s appointment and I missed those two classes. @painseries For what? Soccer? CARA I had to get a physical. It sucked. @Lazarus+ Yeah. I’ll help you during lunch. CARA Thanks a bunch! (To @GloriousReader) Hey I’ll meet you at the bridge later. I’ll get us a smoothie at the park drink stand. @GloriousReader Okay, babe. See yah. They kiss and the officer flips the sign to the side that says “Slow”. @GloriousReader and Cara back away. @GloriousReader (CONT’D) See you all at school. @GloriousReader begins riding his bike past the wreckage and heads on towards the bridge. Cara rides her bike through the grass as she heads into the park. The bridge is a gigantic structure, with a long drop to the bottom where a river flows below. The bridge shakes a little as the winds begin to pick up, and the metal supports creak. Before @Lazarus+ pulls onto the bridge, a car speeds around them on the shoulder, passing in front of them. @Lazarus+ slams on his breaks, causing Leslie to stop. @Lazarus+ What the fuck!? 9. @painseries That’s the guy who almost hit you earlier this morning. @Lazarus+ Jesus Christ! @painseries Forget about it. There’s a line of cars up ahead so he’s not going to be able to go anywhere. Ahead of them is a stop light at the end of the bridge, and about four cars wait in front of it. Cars on the other lane begin to build up due to the fact that the officer had let too many cars come around the wreck behind @Lazarus+. The officers get into a mess and try to keep everything calm while trying to slowly let the cars pass. JOHNNY CASH ‘I fell into a burning ring of fire. I went down, down, down and the flames went higher...’ @GloriousReader gets onto the bridge and goes a few yards before stopping and looking back, waiting for Cara. He breathes heavily and takes a chug of water from his water bottle. INT. CAR In the speeding car, @Sadfleck (19), dressed in a collared shirt and khakis with his hair combed neatly, sits chewing on his fingernails. He slams his fist on the steering wheel and looks at his watch. @Sadfleck Come on! Damn it! Below the bridge, the cement the supports are in begin to crackle and fall apart. The creaking metal gets louder. The bridge shifts position, shaking the cars. INT. TRUCK @Lazarus+ and @painseries become alert. @painseries What was that? 10. INT. VIPER Leslie and Daisy look around. Daisy unbuckles and stands up. The metal creaking continues. DAISY You hear that? EXT. BRIDGE Beneath, the cement blocks break apart completely, and the supports collapse, along with the land beneath it. The end of the bridge sinks beneath the earth and breaks, making the bridge slanted. All the cars roll back into wall of dirt. Leslie’s Viper pops up, rolling over the tiny car behind it. Daisy falls over the windshield and onto the hood. She falls on her back, her head hanging over the edge. @GloriousReader hangs onto the railings as his bike flies over the edge and plunges into the water below. The cars continue to roll back, and @Lazarus+’s truck rolls back faster than the others. @Lazarus+ can’t stop his truck. Before Daisy can react, the truck smashes into Leslie’s Viper, smashing Daisy’s head, brain and skull fragments spray on the back of the truck and on the ground. Large, metal supports on top of the bridge begin to collapse, landing on cars, smashing them into the pavement. One care explodes as a support crushes it. INT. TRUCK @painseries jumps out of the car, slamming the door shut. @Lazarus+ @painseries! @painseries no! @painseries runs in front of the truck, but @Sadfleck’s smashes into his right leg. @painseries doubles over as his leg is crush to pulp, and @Sadfleck’s trunk flies open. As doubles over, the top half of his body sticks into the trunk. A support structure is dislodged from the bridge and falls down onto the trunk of @Sadfleck’s car, slicing @painseries’s body in half. His legs fall back, blood and organs spilling out of what is left of him. 11. The bridge begins to crack in half, and pieces of the bridge begin to break off, taking cars with them. The bridge begins to lean sideways, and all the cars sliding to one side doesn’t help but make it lean to the side even further. @Sadfleck’s car slides across the road and hits the side of the bridge, a sharp piece of metal from the bridge piercing through the door, inches away from @Sadfleck. Cars begin to flip over the side of the bridge. Leslie falls out of her Viper. She slides across the pavement and her Viper and another car slide into her, practically crushing her. She screams in pain as blood begins to pour from her mouth. The bridge railing breaks and she falls off along with her car and a few others. She splashes in the water with her Viper immediately landing on her right after. @Lazarus+’s truck begins to slide sideways towards @Sadfleck’s. As @Sadfleck tries opening the door to get out, @Lazarus+’s truck slams into his, knocking @Sadfleck back, and getting him impaled on the piece of metal. Shards of glass get stuck in his face as they fly at him. @GloriousReader continues to hang onto the railing, but can’t, and lets go. He slides down towards the other side of the bridge and hangs onto a car. One of the edges of the car gets caught onto his pant legs. The railing on the other side of the bridge can’t support of the weight of the car, and snaps. The car plunges towards the depth of the river, taking @GloriousReader with it. A railing pole still intact with the bridge goes between @GloriousReader’s legs. He’s ripped in half from the crotch up as the car pulls him through the pole. The bridge can’t take it any long. The whole thing begins to fall apart. The supports break off and fall into the water. The cars begin splashing into the water, drowning whoever were in them. The bridge breaks in half, and @Lazarus+’s truck slips through the crack. He screams as the water gets nearer and nearer. The truck smashes into the water, the windshield shatters, water pouring in immediately. @Lazarus+ screams underwater, bubbles flowing out of his mouth. He swims out of the windshield and swims up towards the surface, dodging sinking debris. He comes up out of the water, immediately staring up. The bridge is coming down at him, part of it on fire, along with cars and dead bodies. 12. @Lazarus+ has no time to scream as he... CUT TO: EXT. BRIDGE ...Wakes up, eyes darting in every direction, perspiring heavily, and breathing as if he just got done running. CARA Hey @Lazarus+ did you get the homework for history and astronomy? I had a doctor’s appointment and I missed those two classes. @painseries For what? Soccer? CARA I had to get a physical. It sucked. @Lazarus+ looks in front of him. The officer turns the stop sign to where it says “Slow”. CARA (CONT’D) @Lazarus+? @Lazarus+ Holy shit... @painseries Dude, drive. @Lazarus+ No, no, no, we can’t go on that bridge! @painseries Um, yeah we can. CARA @Lazarus+, are you okay? Behind them, Leslie honks. @Lazarus+ No we can’t go on that bridge! If we go on that bridge, we’re all going to die! 13. @GloriousReader What the fuck man? Don’t mess around like that! @Lazarus+ looks in front of him. The officer motions him to drive with an irritated expression on his face. @Lazarus+ I’m not joking! I saw it happen! The bridge is going to collapse! I saw everyone die! CARA @Lazarus+ calm down! @Lazarus+ We have to stop everyone from going on that bridge! The officer walks up to @Lazarus+’s truck. @painseries Dude what the fuck is wrong with you? Behind them, Leslie continues to honk. INT. CAR @Sadfleck looks out his window and sees @Lazarus+’s stalled truck. @Sadfleck What the hell!? EXT. BRIDGE @Lazarus+ storms out of his truck where the officer tries to calm him down. @Lazarus+ You have to stop the people up there from going up the bridge! OFFICER Okay, okay, calm down...What happened here? @Lazarus+ I saw the bridge collapse! I saw it in my head...Everything was on fire, I saw everyone die! 14. @painseries He hasn’t gotten enough sleep lately. It was probably just a dream he had. @Lazarus+ No it wasn’t a dream! I’m serious! LESLIE @Lazarus+ are you okay? DAISY Baby? What’s going on? @Sadfleck gets out of his car and yells at the officer and @Lazarus+. @Sadfleck Can you just let us pass this fuck head?! I have a job interview in ten minutes and my job is on the other side of town! OFFICER (To @Sadfleck) Sir calm down, we will get this situated. I need you to step aside and let these other cars through. @Sadfleck I don’t even know these people! Why the hell should I get over? OFFICER Sir, just do what I say. @Sadfleck steps aside and the officer motions the other cars to pass. OFFICER (CONT’D) (To @Lazarus+) Okay, just pull your vehicle to the side of the road and explain to me what happened—— @Lazarus+ No you can’t let anybody on that bridge! OFFICER I’m going to need you to calm—— @Lazarus+ Just listen to me God damn it!! 15. There’s a loud crashing sound and everyone’s attention is turned to the bridge. The metal supports collapse and the sound of bending metal and smashing glass can be heard. The whole bridge collapses and splashes into the water. The officer runs to his patrol car, leaving @Lazarus+ standing out of his truck, his mouth agape and his eyes wide. DAISY Oh my God! @Sadfleck steps towards his car cautiously, but doesn’t get in it. @Lazarus+ runs a few feet towards the direction of the bridge, pulling at his hair, but stops, tears flowing from his eyes, and turns around. He turns back and looks at where the bridge used to be, but is now nothing but smoke. CUT TO BLACK FADE IN: INT. ROOM - NIGHT @Lazarus+ paces across his room. Messages left on his phone ring in his head. DAISY (O.S.) Hey...Ty...@Lazarus+...I was just seeing if you wanted to talk. I mean, I don’t want whatever happened earlier today to freak you out for the rest of your life. (Beat) If you want to talk, you can always call me. Beep! Another message comes in. @Lazarus+ looks at a picture of him and an older boy that looks like him. It’s @Lazarus+’s older brother. CARA (O.S.) Look I know you probably don’t want to talk now, but I’m calling to tell you that whenever you do want to tell me something, you can always call me. I just don’t want this thing to change our lifestyle. I...I guess I’ll see you at school. Beep! There’s a knock at @Lazarus+’s door. He turns and sees his mom peek in. 16. ERIN How’s it going? @Lazarus+ looks down at his feet he sits down on his bed as Erin walks to him with a cup of water and a sleeping pill in her hand. ERIN (CONT’D) Here take this. He puts the pill in his mouth and drinks half of the water. Erin begins rubbing @Lazarus+’s shoulders, breathe deeply. @Lazarus+ I don’t even know what happened, Mom. I wasn’t able to comprehend anything. Everything was moving too fast, and when I finally realized what was going on...It was too late. Erin stops rubbing his shoulders. He turns to her. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) And now, after this, everyone’s going to look at me differently, like I’m a freak. ERIN @painseries told me you haven’t been able to sleep. It was probably just a dream that turned to be a coincidence. @Lazarus+ A coincidence? It wasn’t a dream, Mom. You don’t know what I saw, what I smelled, what I felt...But what I want to know was: if it wasn’t a dream...what was it? INT. LIBRARY - DAY @painseries and @Lazarus+ walk through aisles full of books and carts. @Lazarus+ If it wasn’t a dream, then what was it? 17. @painseries I don’t know, man. I didn’t see what you saw. All I saw was you freaking out and then it happened. @Lazarus+ How did it happen? How was I able to see it happen when nobody else could? @painseries pulls a book off a shelf. @painseries I guess that’s another one of Life’s mysteries. @Lazarus+ Look I’m serious about all of this. I’m scared and I know you are and I know Daisy is, and I know everyone is. @painseries I didn’t say anything about it being a joke. He pulls another book off the shelf. @painseries (CONT’D) Okay, so, I’m going trust you and drop the part about it being a dream. So, what was it then? A vision? Are you psychic? @Lazarus+ It hasn’t happened to me before. Or at least something that real. @painseries So it was sort of like a premonition, maybe? Something you see before it happens? It’s sort of like a dream, except it actually does happen just the way you visioned it. @Lazarus+ So you’re saying that what I had was a premonition? @painseries I don’t know @Lazarus+. I don’t know as much as you do about this. 18. @Lazarus+ Well at least you know something. Do premonitions just come randomly or what? @painseries searches the shelf and pulls out a specific book titled: “Psychics: Premonitions, Visions, and Dreams.” @painseries Look in there and tell me what it says. @Lazarus+ flips through the pages and searches for premonitions. @Lazarus+ ‘Premonition refers to a situation when future events are foreknown or forecast. Premonitions are usually treated as a result of paranormal or supernatural feat.’ So a ghost gave me the vision? @painseries Apparently some supernatural force gave it to you. @Lazarus+ But why? @painseries Hey, I’m no expert at this myth mumbo-jumbo. @Lazarus+ @painseries, I need your help. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life trying to figure out why this is happening to me. @painseries Okay, okay. Look, you’re Christian right? @Lazarus+ Yeah. @painseries Maybe, it means supernatural as in the Holy Ghost or God or someone. @Lazarus+ Okay, you’re getting a little too into this. 19. @painseries No think about it. Maybe God thought it wasn’t your time to go yet. That he wanted you to have a second chance at life. So he gives you a vision of the bridge you happened to be going on collapsing, and minutes later, it collapses just like you saw it. What if God wanted you to cheat death so you could have another chance at life? @Lazarus+ Cheat death? But wouldn’t that be upsetting the motion of life or whatever? (Beat) Wait a minute...The whole point of me having the vision in the first place was a warning right? What if we were meant to go on the bridge as followed? @painseries So you’re saying that by not getting on the bridge in the first place, we could have changed something? @Lazarus+ Which is a big no-no. @painseries I think you’re starting to get too into this now. @Lazarus+ I’m just trying to figure out what the fuck is going on, @Lazarus+! I’m afraid I did someting I wasn’t meant to do... @painseries sets his books down on a nearby table and walks over to @Lazarus+. @painseries Look, go home. It’s been a rough two days, you gotta get some sleep. Besides, I need to work on my history project and worrying about this is making my day any better. Go talk to Daisy. I’m pretty sure she’s really concerned about you. 20. @Lazarus+ All right. I’ll see you later, then, I guess. @painseries All right, take care. @painseries sits down at a table and begins opening a few books. @Lazarus+ walks through an aisle of books and out the door of the library. EXT. CITY - DAY @Lazarus+ walks on the sidewalk, passing by normal citizens. He bumps shoulders with a tall black MAN. @Lazarus+ turns around. @Lazarus+ Oh, sorry about that. MAN Don’t be sorry, @Lazarus+. @Lazarus+ is speechless. The man smiles and turns around and walks away. @Lazarus+ backs away onto the street and over a manhole with a little bit of steam coming out of it. The steam begins twirling around @Lazarus+, as if trying to squeeze him. @Lazarus+, hypnotized, stares at the steam. A horn blares in his ears and the steam disperses into the air. He turns around and sees a driver in a car motioning him to get out of the way. INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT @Lazarus+ sits at his computer, opening the Internet. He goes to a search engine and types in “Premonition”. The page begins to fill up with links to information about premonitions. But one catches his eye: “Premonitions and Death” with a tiny summary below it: “How do they relate?” He clicks on the link and it takes him to a gothic looking page with skulls and devils. He clicks on the table of contents to the left of the page to where it says “Premonitions”. @Lazarus+ (V.O.) Nobody knows how or when somebody will have a premonition. 21. (MORE) Usually, certain people, usually those who are very religious, have a kind of dream or vision before a large disaster or accident will happen, eventually turning out to happen days, even hours, after they had the premonition. He scrolls down the page. @Lazarus+ (V.O.)(CONT’D) For example, Abraham Lincoln had a dream of his death and funeral, which he related to both his bodyguard and his wife mere hours before his assassination. He looks on the left side of the page at the table of contents. He clicks on a link titled: “Death”. @Lazarus+ (V.O.) (CONT’D) Sometimes avoiding a disaster after having a premonition can lead to bizarre happenings. A woman in particular, who had actually boarded the Titanic, knew as soon as she had boarded what the outcome of the voyage would be. Her and her daughter were able to get off before the shipped departed. A few years later, both the mother and the daughter were killed in their house after a fire had broken out. @Lazarus+’s phone rings, startling him. He looks at the caller ID and answers the phone. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Hey Cara. CARA (O.S.) Hey...How’s it going? @Lazarus+ You know me. Staying up late doing something. CARA (O.S.) You’re hurting yourself, @Lazarus+. You need sleep. @Lazarus+ How can any of us sleep after what happened? 22. @Lazarus+ (V.O.) (CONT'D) CARA (O.S.) Look I don’t want you to become an insomniac. @Lazarus+ Don’t worry about me, Cara. I’m going to be fine. I’m slowly getting over this. I just have this weird feeling. CARA (O.S.) Like what? @Lazarus+ I don’t know. I’m trying to figure it out. I’ll talk to you later. CARA (O.S.) Okay, then...Bye. @Lazarus+ hangs up and looks at his bed. He sighs and lays down, closing his eyes. INT. HOUSE - DAY Daisy walks out of her room and into the kitchen where her mom, MRS. WREN, puts candle in a small chocolate cake. DAISY The cake looks good, Mom. MRS. WREN Anybody coming here to celebrate? DAISY I know Leslie is. @Lazarus+ might also. The doorbell rings. DAISY (CONT’D) That’s probably Leslie. Daisy quickly walks out of the room while Mrs. Wren sets the cake on the table. She begins lighting the candles. Daisy opens the door and sees it’s @Lazarus+. She smiles and hugs him. They kiss and Daisy steps back. @Lazarus+ Happy birthday. 23. DAISY I’m so glad you came. Come in. We’re about to have cake. @Lazarus+ Is Leslie here yet? DAISY No not yet. @Lazarus+ Is anybody else coming? DAISY No, I don’t really like having parties. Too much of a hassle and I can’t really make things interesting. They walk into the kitchen just as Mrs. Wren finishes lighting the candles. MRS. WREN Hey @Lazarus+. How are you? @Lazarus+ I’m good, thank you. (To Daisy) Oh, here. I didn’t know what you liked so... He hands her a bag with tissue paper stuffed in it. She pulls out a tiny bear holding a box of chocolates. The box says “I Heart You.” DAISY Aw, @Lazarus+, I love it. But this looks like something they’d sell for Valentine’s day. @Lazarus+ You just have to search in the right places, I guess. The doorbell rings again. DAISY Oh, that’s Leslie. Daisy leaves and Mrs. Wren goes upstairs. @Lazarus+ walks over to the cake and sees seventeen candles arranged in a smiley face. In the middle, “Happy Birthday, Daisy!” is written. In the background, he can hear Daisy and Leslie talking. 24. A breeze comes through the kitchen and the candle flames begin to flicker. He looks around the room, and up at the ceiling, where an air conditioning duct is. There are strings hanging from the duct, but they aren’t moving, indicating there’s no air coming from it. He looks back down and the candles begin to go out one by one. The smoke rises around @Lazarus+ just like the steam from the manhole. He looks at it move as if it has a mind of its own. DAISY (O.S.) (CONT’D) Yeah, @Lazarus+’s here too. @Lazarus+ turns around and sees Leslie standing next to Daisy. Leslie looks at @Lazarus+ uncomfortably. LESLIE Hi, @Lazarus+... There’s a moment of silence until Daisy realizes the candles have been blown out. DAISY Damn it. Mom I thought you lit these! MRS. WREN I did light them! The air conditioning must have blown them out. @Lazarus+ looks up at the air conditioning duct and sees the strings still aren’t moving. Daisy begins relighting the candles. @Lazarus+ Well I better get going. I have to—— DAISY Already? No please don’t, I like having you hear. Besides, Leslie and I were going to the arcade after this. Daisy looks at @Lazarus+ with the saddest look on her face. @Lazarus+ gives in. @Lazarus+ You know I hate it when you do that. Okay, I’ll come, but only for a little bit. 25. Daisy smiles and hugs @Lazarus+. DAISY Here, let’s have some cake, and then we can leave. INT. ARCADE - DAY Lights flash like strobe lights and kids dash back and forth, going from game to game, earning tickets and laughing. Daisy, Leslie, and @Lazarus+ walk in, sitting down at a nearby table. Leslie pulls out a box wrapped in wrapping paper and hands it to Daisy. Daisy unwraps it and her eyes grow wide and her mouth drops. It’s an iHome. DAISY How did you...This is incredible! How were you able to afford it? LESLIE I had my parents help me pay for it, plus using pretty much all the paychecks I got from my job. DAISY Thank you so much! She gets up and hugs Leslie. LESLIE Go ahead, try it out. The batteries are already in it. Daisy pulls out her iPod and sticks it in the slot. She turns on her iPod and switches to any song and it begins playing. It works perfectly. DAISY This is a@painseriesome! Thanks Leslie. LESLIE No problem. You were always talking about it, so I decided to finally get you one. DAISY Yeah, but you didn’t have to. 26. LESLIE Hey, it’s your birthday. You deserve it. The three of them become quiet and the song continues to play. DAISY Come on, let’s go play some games. @Lazarus+ I will in a few minutes. I’m going to sit here for a few minutes. I’m kind of tired. DAISY Leslie? LESLIE I’ll join you in a while too. I’m probably going to get something to drink or something. DAISY Oh, okay. Promise? Both of you? @Lazarus+ Yeah. Daisy smiles and walks off. Leslie turns to @Lazarus+. LESLIE You two are perfect for each other, you know? @Lazarus+ Yeah, she’s great. I wouldn’t know what I’d do without. @Lazarus+ looks down at his feet. LESLIE You okay? @Lazarus+ No, Leslie, no I’m not okay. LESLIE What’s wrong? 27. @Lazarus+ Everything! First the vision of the bridge collapsing, and I’ve been getting these strange feeling everywhere I go. Like someone——or something——is watching me. I have this feeling that something bad is going to happen. Like I did before I had the premonition of the bridge. LESLIE What was that feeling like? @Lazarus+ Like, I knew something bad was going to happen before it did. I was overcome by fear and I couldn’t make it go away. It stuck to me since the night before it happened. LESLIE I can see why you would be afraid after this ‘premonition’ of your happened, but why do you think something bad is going to happen later on? @Lazarus+ rubs his eyes and runs his fingers through his hair. @Lazarus+ I did some research last night about premonitions, like where they come from or how someone has them. LESLIE What did you find out? @Lazarus+ People usually have dreams of an accident before it happens to warn them, possibly from a supernatural feat, that is, if you’re a religious person. LESLIE And your Christian right? @Lazarus+ Yes, but I don’t know if this premonition was sent by God or the Holy Ghost or whatever. The feeling I had when I first got it was dark. 28. (MORE) I felt nothing but fear as if something evil had given me the vision. LESLIE Look, I think you’re overreacting—— @Lazarus+ No, I’m not overreacting, Leslie. Listen to this: Four people who didn’t even know each other had a dream of a plane crash they were supposed to be on the night before. The next day, the plane had crash landed, killing everyone on board. A few weeks later, those four people who happened to be in the same building at the same time were killed when the building collapsed. LESLIE It’s just a coincidence. @Lazarus+ That’s what it seems like. These people were meant to die, but avoided the accident. By doing so, they died later on in these freak accidents. LESLIE Are there any cases of this happening? @Lazarus+ pulls out a few papers printed from the website he was at the night before. @Lazarus+ A woman and her child boarded the Titanic. Just as the woman stepped onto the boat, she had a premonition of the Titanic sinking. Her and her daughter got off before the ship sailed off. A few years after the Titanic sank, their house caught on fire, killing both of them. Leslie reads over the papers and looks up at @Lazarus+. LESLIE I don’t see how you believe this, @Lazarus+. This is a load of bullshit. 29. @Lazarus+ (CONT'D) @Lazarus+ Leslie! You didn’t see what I saw in the premonition! If you had it, you’d probably be doing what I’d be doing, thinking what I’d be thinking, and feeling what I am feeling right this second. LESLIE Really. And what’s that feeling? @Lazarus+ (Eyes watery) Fear. Daisy sits at a racing game, really into the game. She steps further down on the pedal and passes the car in front of her, getting her in first place. Two delivery workers come through the entrance of the arcade pushing a large game on a cart. They walk up to a desk where an arcade employee sits. He points to the back of the arcade. The delivery people push the car towards the back. As they push the cart, one of the screws from the back right wheel begins to push out. It falls out, unnoticable to anybody. Daisy quits playing the racing game and walks over to the back where the delivery people are. She sees the new game called “Head Trauma” and walks over to it. The delivery people park the cart next to a box arcade game where you sit down and pull the curtains to make it dark, usually a shooting game. She looks at the new arcade game the delivery people have brought and stares at it. DELIVERY MAN Come on, let’s get these papers signed so we can get out of here. The delivery men walk over to the employee at the desk, and Daisy gets in the box arcade game, shutting the curtains and putting in her coins. She pulls out one of the guns and gets ready to play, setting her phone on the seat. The cart shifts over a little by itself, another bolt popping out of the back right tire. Then another one; the wheel starts to wiggle. A bolt comes out of the front right wheel and falls onto the ground, rolling underneath the cart. Back at the table, the song “Daisy” by Switchfoot comes on, grabbing @Lazarus+’s attention. 30. LESLIE Don’t begin getting paranoid about this kind of stuff. There’s no reason to be afraid anymore. @Lazarus+ I can’t help but be afraid. The bad feeling I have is always with me, never going away. LESLIE Maybe you need to get checked up or something. The continues to play, getting louder by itself. @Lazarus+ looks at the iPod closely. The title of the song, “Daisy” begins to flicker and fade out. He stares at it. SWITCHFOOT ‘Let it go, Daisy let it go. Open up your fist, this fallen world. Doesn’t hold your interest, doesn’t hold your soul, Daisy let it go.’ LESLIE @Lazarus+? You okay? @Lazarus+ What? LESLIE I said are you okay? You look sick. @Lazarus+ looks back at the iPod. The name “Daisy” disappears from the screen. SWITCHFOOT ‘Giving isn’t easy. Neither is the rain, when she gives herself away. Daisy——Daisy——Daisy——’ The song gets stuck at the word “Daisy”, playing it over again. Leslie looks at the iHome and slaps it, trying to make it continue with the song. @Lazarus+ stares at his, his breathing getting harder. LESLIE What the hell? I just got this and it’s already screwing up! @Lazarus+ stands up, knocking his chair over. 31. LESLIE (CONT’D) God damn it! (To @Lazarus+) What’s wrong? @Lazarus+ I’m having another one of those bad feelings. What game did Daisy say she was going to play? LESLIE I don’t know. Try calling her. @Lazarus+ pulls out his phone and speed dials Daisy’s number. Leslie continues to try and get the song to continue playing, but it’s still stuck on “Daisy”. INT. BOX ARCADE GAME Daisy’s phone is on silent, but it’s vibrating. It begins to slide towards the edge of the seat. The sound of the game is too loud for Daisy to hear the phone vibrating as she shoots at mutant creatures trying to attack her. Another bolt from the front right wheel falls off, and the cart begins to wiggle with the wheels. INT. ARCADE @Lazarus+ does a full 360 degree turn. @Lazarus+ Come on, Daisy, pick up the phone. LESLIE Why don’t we try and find her? @Lazarus+ I’ll go do that. You stay here. @Lazarus+ begins walking off and Leslie stands up, about to follow @Lazarus+, but he turns aruond. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) No, Leslie, stay here, okay? LESLIE I was just going to help you find—— 32. @Lazarus+ Just stay here damn it! (More calmly) I just need to be alone with Daisy right now. LESLIE (Sitting back down) Oh, I understand. Sorry. @Lazarus+ runs off and Leslie looks back at the iHome. The song gets unstuck and continues to play normally. INT. BOX ARCADE GAME Daisy continues to shoot at her enemies as her phone still vibrates. It stops at the very edge. INT. ARCADE @Lazarus+ stops and hears Daisy’s answering machine. He hangs up and flips his phone back open, calling her number again. INT. BOX ARCADE GAME Her phone vibrates again, moving over the edge. It falls onto the floor, making a sound loud enough for Daisy to hear. DAISY Shit. She looks back at the screen, which says, “GAME OVER” on it in bloody letters. She sets the gun back in the slot and opens the curtain, bending down to get her phone. She answers it, still squatting. DAISY (CONT’D) Hello? @Lazarus+ (O.S.) Daisy! INT. ARCADE @Lazarus+ Daisy where are you? 33. EXT. BOX ARCADE GAME DAISY I’m at the back of the arcade. Why? @Lazarus+ (O.S.) Just stay where you are! He hangs up and she stares at her phone. She grabs the box arcade game and pulls herself up, but her hand slips, and she falls on her back. INT. ARCADE @Lazarus+ runs through the arcade, zig-zagging through games and people. He runs towards the back. EXT. BOX ARCADE GAME The wheels on the cart give in, and they break off, the Head Trauma game tipping over onto the box arcade game. Daisy gasps and covers her face, but slowly pulls her hands away as Head Trauma had been stopped by the box arcade game. @Lazarus+ runs around the corner and sees Daisy under Head Trauma. @Lazarus+ Daisy? Daisy begins to sit up when Head Trauma slips off the box arcade game. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Daisy!! Daisy looks up but it’s too late. Head Trauma comes down on her head and shoulders, creating a sickening crunch. Blood sprays on the box arcade game and on the words “Head Trauma”. Her body jolts as her head is crushed. @Lazarus+ covers his mouth, his eyes wide. He opens his mouth, but nothing comes out. People in the back look at what happened, gasping. @Lazarus+ falls to his knees, staring at Daisy’s twitching body. He holds his hand out to her, but quickly snatches it back. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) NO!!! 34. EXT. ARCADE An ambulance sits in front of the entrance, with bystanders watching the paramedics pull Daisy’s body to the vehicle on the stretcher. @Lazarus+ watches them put her body in the back and turns away, sitting down on the curb. His eyes are red and puffy and he holds the bear that he gave Daisy for her birthday. He looks back at the ambulance. Standing in front of it is Leslie. Tears streaming down her face, she looks at @Lazarus+, shakes her head, and looks away. @Lazarus+ looks at the parking lot. Standing between two cars is the man he saw in the city. He watches the man as the man stares back. A news van drives by. CARA (O.S.) Hey @Lazarus+! @Lazarus+ looks over and sees Cara and @GloriousReader riding their bikes to him. He stands up. @GloriousReader What happened here? Cara sees @Lazarus+’s red eyes and a tear cascades down his cheek. CARA Oh my God, @Lazarus+ are you okay? He squeezes the bear and looks back up at Cara. @Lazarus+ Daisy’s dead. Cara opens her mouth to say something, but she can’t make anything come out. She grabs @Lazarus+ and holds him tightly. He looks up at @GloriousReader who lowers his bike to the ground and collapses, resting his head on his hand. Cara lets go and @Lazarus+ looks back out into the parking lot where he saw the man, but he isn’t there anymore. INT. SCHOOL - DAY @Lazarus+ walks through the school hallway alone. 35. REPORTER (O.S.) Forty-two people were killed on Mason Bridge Tuesday morning at 8:15 A.M. after the supports beneath the bridge gave out and caused the structure to collapse 150 feet into the river below. Students pile into the hallway with @Lazarus+. Almost everybody stares at him, some whispering to each other. REPORTER (O.S.) (CONT’D) Seven people avoided the disaster when one of the drivers got out of his vehicle and stopped the traffic. Officers nearby said the driver had seen the bridge collapse before it actually happened. @Lazarus+ walks up to @painseries. He pats @Lazarus+ on the back. INT. HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - NIGHT @Lazarus+ sits on a couch watching the news with the REPORTER talking. Clips of the destruction of the bridge are shown on television. REPORTER Police officials are still searching through the debris still left in the river, while most had been carried down stream. There were no survivors whatsoever and all roads leading to Mason Bridge have been blocked until further notice. @Lazarus+ switches the channels to another news station. A woman reports outside of the arcade from earlier that day. REPORTER #2 Daisy Wren was killed today at the age of 17 when an arcade game had tipped over, crushing her. We’ll have more on that tonight on Fox News. @Lazarus+ looks over at the kitchen table. The bear he got for her sits on top of it, staring at him. @Lazarus+ grabs the remote and turns of the TV, throwing the remote at the wall. 36. EXT. SCHOOL - DAY @Lazarus+, @GloriousReader, and Cara sit outside of the school at a table. Cara and @GloriousReader have lunch, but @Lazarus+ has nothing. @GloriousReader It’s so weird, man. Why did it happen? CARA @GloriousReader, please don’t start. I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t think any of us do. @GloriousReader I just think it’s weird, you know? I mean, she was one of the people who didn’t go on the bridge, and after a few days, she’s dead. @Lazarus+ lifts his head up. Leslie walks around the corner and sees @Lazarus+. She stops and stares at him. CARA @GloriousReader please, just drop it. It happened three days ago. That’s a little too early to be talking about it. Leslie begins walking towards the group of three. @Lazarus+ slowly stands up. @Lazarus+ Leslie... Leslie continues to walk, not saying anything. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Leslie, please... Leslie stops, but doesn’t turn around. LESLIE I don’t care what you have to say, @Lazarus+, because whatever it is it’s not going to bring Daisy back. Leslie turns around. @Lazarus+ Look, I loved her as much as you did. 37. (MORE) I couldn’t have stopped what was going to happen. I got there too late to pull her out of the way. I don’t want you to blame this on me. (To everyone) I don’t want all of you to think that I’m causing this because I’m some sort of freak or something. @Lazarus+ pulls out the bear from his backpack. He hands it to Leslie. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) I don’t want anything that reminds me of the past few days right now. I just don’t want any of you starting to avoid me because of what’s happening. Leslie looks down at the bear. She gently pulls it from @Lazarus+’s hands and looks at it in the eyes. She is close to crying. LESLIE Thanks, @Lazarus+. @Lazarus+ smiles a little, but it quickly fades away. He turns away and walks back to @GloriousReader and Cara, but is stopped by Leslie. LESLIE (CONT’D) @Lazarus+, I want to talk to you. INT. SCHOOL @Lazarus+ and Leslie walk side by side together down a sidewalk. LESLIE On Friday before Daisy...was killed, you said you were having another one of those bad feelings. @Lazarus+ Yeah. LESLIE Do you think you can tell me what that felt like? Or how you knew something bad was going to happen? @Lazarus+ stops walking. Leslie stops and turns to @Lazarus+. 38. @Lazarus+ (CONT'D) @Lazarus+ I had the same feeling I did before the bridge collapse. It was like there was something that shouldn’t have been there, like a presence or something. They walk outside. EXT. SCHOOL They sit down at a bench just as it starts to rain. @Lazarus+ When I heard Daisy’s name in that song, I suddenly got that feeling, that we shouldn’t have been there. LESLIE So, what? You thought the song was giving you a sign that Daisy was going to die? @Lazarus+ I don’t think it was the song. Some freak accident like that doesn’t normally happen every day you know, and it’s a one out of a million chance to know that something like that was going to happen. LESLIE Then how did you know Daisy was in trouble? @Lazarus+ Something in me told me that I should check on her just in case. I didn’t know she was going to die! LESLIE None of us did! @Lazarus+ gets up and begins to walk away. @Lazarus+ I just don’t want to deal with this right now. LESLIE @Lazarus+... 39. He stops and turns around. LESLIE (CONT’D) Don’t ignore those feelings. They’re probably trying to tell you something. @Lazarus+ takes this into consideration. He slowly turns around and walks away. He walks around the corner of the school when his cell phone begins beeping. He pulls it out of his pocket and opens it up. @painseries has sent him a text message saying: “Meet me where I work.” He closes his phone and walks into the school. EXT. GARDEN NURSERY - DAY @painseries, dressed in a blue apron with the name of the store printed in bold yellow letters, sets pots on a shelf, pushing a cart full of plants and tools. @GloriousReader and @Lazarus+ follow behind him. @painseries Yeah the job sucks but I’m trying to get a spot as a waiter at a restaurant. @GloriousReader It’s not as great as you think, but the place I worked at for a while I earned ten dollars an hour. @painseries Shit! Where did you work? @GloriousReader At the Chili’s down on 360. @painseries I gotta check it out sometime. Where’s Cara by the way? You two literally never leave each other’s side. @GloriousReader She had to babysit her little brother. @Lazarus+ Look can you just tell us why you brought us here. 40. @painseries pushes the basket further down the aisle. @painseries Ah, two things. First, what happened to you, @Lazarus+, has happened before. @Lazarus+ What? The premonition thing? That’s happened for hundreds of years, maybe even thousands. @painseries Yeah but this is different. Two years ago, there was this major pile up on Route 23 about two hours away from here. Man it was hellish. Though, what’s weird is that this girl has a vision of it before it happens, and she and a few other people are prevented from going onto the road. He sets a few plants on a table. @Lazarus+ Like us. @painseries Yeah, but things get weirder. After a day or so, one of the people who was stopped from going onto Route 23 was killed outside of his apartment. @GloriousReader Just like Daisy. @Lazarus+ looks at @GloriousReader angrily, and then back at @painseries. @Lazarus+ Where are you going with this? @painseries Look, the main point of this story is that the people who were stopped from going onto Route 23 were killed in these accidents that usually don’t happen every day. And sorry to bring this up, but what happened to Daisy surely was no fucking every day accident. 41. @Lazarus+ Well do you know why they started dying like that? @painseries Something about cheating death or some weird shit. @GloriousReader That’s bullshit, @painseries. @Lazarus+ No, no...I believe him. A few days ago I researched a few things. Some of these people had visions of something happen before it actually happened, and after a while, they died. @GloriousReader Why, though? @painseries Maybe because those who avoided the disaster were never meant to avoid it at all, as if the whole thing was planned. @Lazarus+ So what are you trying to say? That since we didn’t get on the bridge when we were meant to, we’re going to die? @painseries I don’t know, @Lazarus+! I can’t predict the future...Like some people... They walk to another part of the nursery where there are tables with plants sitting on them. There is a large tool shelf with blue tarp hanging behind it. Various tools lie on the shelf such as garden shears, Cape Cod weeders, and sickles. @Lazarus+ Wait...In my premonition, Daisy was killed first. And out of all of us, she’s the only one who’s died so far. @GloriousReader Call it a coincidence? 42. @Lazarus+ I don’t know. But what’s the other thing you wanted to tell us? @painseries Right. I found out who the other guy was, the one who almost hit the back of your truck. @Lazarus+ Who? @painseries @Sadfleck, 12th grade, held back two years. I figured we’d get his name just in case any more weird stuff happens to us, we could meet together. Near them, another employee sets a pot down full of dirt with a large plant in it. He grabs the water hose and sticks it in the pot and turns it on. Water begins to flow slowly out of it. @GloriousReader What are you trying to say, that what happened to Daisy is going to start happening to us? @painseries No, I’m not saying anything! What I’m trying to tell you is that if whatever the fuck happened on Route 23 might be happening to us and we need to know what to do if it is. The water hose falls out of the pot and onto the ground, making a puddle of water. The water begins to creep towards the group of three as if it had a mind of its own. Behind the tarp, another employee pushes a car with water hoses and more pots. The water hose catches onto a nail sticking out of a leg of a wooden table. The hose begins to stretch out, the employee oblivious to what’s happening. The employee leaves the cart by another table, walking away. @painseries begins putting the garden tools on the shelf one by one. @Lazarus+ and @GloriousReader stand back, watching him, unaware of the water passing by their feet. @painseries accidentally drops a tool, and @GloriousReader steps forward to pick it up. As he does so, he steps in the path of the water. But the water takes a sudden left turn, avoiding @GloriousReader’s step. 43. @Lazarus+ walks past @painseries and towards another tool shelf with more gardening tools on it. He grabs a round, metallic thermometer with pictures of birds and flowers painted on it. Everything is reflected off of it. @Lazarus+ stares at himself in the mirror-like object, looking at the bags under his eyes. He sighs and is about to put the thermometer up when he sees, behind him, the tool shelf falling towards him, the tools flying off the shelf. @Lazarus+ spins around and steps back, tripping over himself and falling on the ground, dropping the thermometer. He looks up and sees the tool shelf hasn’t even budged. @GloriousReader and @painseries stare at him. @painseries (CONT’D) You okay? @Lazarus+ Yeah...Something startled me. That’s all. @GloriousReader Look are we finished? I need to get home. @Lazarus+ stands up and puts the thermometer back where he found it. He walks back to @GloriousReader and @painseries. @painseries finishes putting the tools on the shelf and steps back. On the other side of the blue tarp, an employee struggling with a large pot, walks towards the hose caught on the nail sticking out of the table leg. @painseries steps on the water, and on the tile floor, it makes it slippery. @painseries slips back, landing on the floor. Before @GloriousReader or @Lazarus+ can react and help him up, the struggling employee trips over the hose, falling forward. The employee flies into the blue tarp, falling on the shelf. The shelf falls forward, sharp gardening tools fly off towards @painseries. But @GloriousReader comes in and pulls @painseries out of the way. The tool shelf lands on the table that was behind @painseries when he fell, the tools shooting out like arrows and landing on the floor, making a loud clatter. @Lazarus+ runs over and helps @painseries and @GloriousReader up. @painseries Holy shit...! 44. @GloriousReader You okay? @painseries Yeah I’m fine. Shit that was close. The employee who tripped pokes his head around the blue tarp with an alert look on his face. EMPLOYEE Sorry about that! Are you all okay? @painseries Yeah we’re fine. Maybe you should, uh, be more careful next time. EXT. GARDEN NURSERY @Lazarus+ walks out into the rain, looking down at the ground. He bumps into the same man he had bumped into before. @Lazarus+ Sorry... He turns around and sees the man. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Hey... The man turns around. MAN Yes? @Lazarus+ What’s your name? MR. BLUDWORTH William Bludworth. MR. BLUDWORTH begins to walk away, but @Lazarus+ stops him. @Lazarus+ How did you know my name? MR. BLUDWORTH You’ll know when you need my help as time goes by. Mr. Bludworth walks away, leaving @Lazarus+ standing in the rain, getting soaked. 45. INT. ROOM - NIGHT @Lazarus+ looks through online newspaper articles. He comes to a page with a picture of Kimberly Corman and Officer Burke. In bold letters, the headlines are “Survivors of a deadly crash die in bizarre accident; Faulty woodchipper to blame”. He reads the article and clicks on a related link, leading him to a page with a picture of a skeleton with burnt surroundings. The headline: “Flight 180 survivor dies in explosion”. @Lazarus+ looks next to his computer. It’s the same picture of him and his older brother. He sighs. @Lazarus+ flips out his cell phone and dials @painseries’ phone number. It rings a few times and @painseries finally picks up. @painseries (O.S.) (Groggy) Hello? @Lazarus+ You still awake? @painseries (O.S.) (Still groggy) Yeah...Yeah I’m awake. @Lazarus+ I looked up some articles about that Route 23 crash you told @GloriousReader and me about. You know how you told me that the people who didn’t get on Route 23 began to die in bizarre accidents? @painseries (O.S.) Yeah. @Lazarus+ I’m beginning to think that is happening to us. @painseries (O.S.) Why? Daisy’s the only one that died. @Lazarus+ Yeah, but who do you know gets killed by an arcade game? And what about you? 46. @painseries (O.S.) Me? @Lazarus+ When the tool shelf fell, you were almost killed by those gardening tools. @painseries (O.S.) What about it? @Lazarus+ @painseries you don’t understand. In my premonition, Daisy died first, then you. @painseries is silent for a moment. @painseries (O.S.) Look, if it was Daisy first, then me, why am I not dead yet? @Lazarus+ I don’t know. I—— @painseries (O.S.) Look, @Lazarus+, it’s late. Go to bed, I’ll see you tomorrow. Before @Lazarus+ can speak, @painseries hangs up. He turns off his computer and gets into bed, turning off the lamp. INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY - DAY @Lazarus+ walks into the school, less people staring at him, but still some gossiping to each other. He walks over to his locker and opens it. He puts in a few books and takes out a binder. He shuts the locker and sees @Sadfleck standing next to him. He gets startled by him. @Sadfleck Alright, Daily, what’s going on? @Lazarus+ Okay I’m guess @painseries told you who I was, but this is urgent so I don’t want any fucking around. 47. @Sadfleck Just tell me what the hell is going on. @Lazarus+ Walk with me. Okay, you saw what happened when I began freaking out before the bridge collapsed, right? @Sadfleck Yeah I never seen anyone so scared. You were one scared son of a bitch. @Lazarus+ Look, a few days later, my girlfriend had died in this accident at the arcade. @Sadfleck Oh, well, I’m sorry man, but what does that have to do with us? Cara, Leslie, and @GloriousReader walk up to @Lazarus+ and @Sadfleck quickly. @GloriousReader Okay, we’re here. What is it? @Lazarus+ Look, I think we’re all in danger right now. LESLIE What do you mean? @Lazarus+ Okay, look, everyone needs to know. In my premonition, Daisy was the first one to die. A few days later, Daisy was killed in the arcade. Then yesterday, @painseries was almost killed at the garden nursery, but @GloriousReader pulled him out of the way. LESLIE So? @Lazarus+ In my premonition, @painseries was the second person to die. @Sadfleck So was everyone here in the premonition? 48. @Lazarus+ Yeah...Except for Cara. She wasn’t on the bridge when it collapsed. CARA So that means I’m safe, right? @Lazarus+ You should be...But that’s not the point! Look if this kind of patter continues to follow, we’re going to have start watching over each other, because if this keeps happening, we’re all going to die. LESLIE Oh my God... @GloriousReader steps up to @Lazarus+. @GloriousReader Are you sure it was only Cara who wasn’t on the bridge? Nobody else? @Lazarus+ Yeah... CARA Oh my God, @GloriousReader... Cara and @GloriousReader embrace tightly. @Sadfleck How do we know who’s next to die, though? @Lazarus+ I’m not sure...When Daisy died that’s when I had that bad feeling I told Leslie about and——wait, the song on the radio. It got stuck on the word Daisy, and a few minutes after, she was killed. LESLIE So it was like a sign telling you she was going to die? 49. @Lazarus+ I think so. And in my reflection when I was looking at that thermometer in the garden nursery, I saw the shelf behind me about to fall on top of me, and later, the shelf behind @painseries fell down and the tools on it almost killed him. LESLIE Are you the only one who can see these signs? @Lazarus+ I don’t know. LESLIE Well then who’s next? @Lazarus+ closes his eyes and tries to think, but he shakes his head. @Lazarus+ I don’t know. I can’t remember, I’m too tired to remember. The bell rings and everyone goes to their classes. Cara urges @GloriousReader to walk with her to their class. @Sadfleck Well, if you see another sign, call whoever is next, okay? I don’t want to die in front of my class okay? LESLIE There are other people who have died before you, and all you’re thinking about is yourself? @Sadfleck Hey, look missy, I’m 19! I still have a full life ahead of me! I don’t want to die yet, and I’m sure you don’t want to either! @Lazarus+ Guys. Guys! Just go to class. We’ll talk about this later, okay? The three walk off in different directions. Leslie stops @Lazarus+. 50. LESLIE @Lazarus+? @Lazarus+ Yeah? LESLIE Are you sure you can’t remember? @Lazarus+ I’m sorry. I can’t. Leslie frowns. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Hey you have chemistry next, right? LESLIE Yeah. I have a test in it. It’s going to be horrible. @Lazarus+ Good luck on it then. LESLIE Thanks. She walks in the direction she was headed. @Lazarus+ watches her turn the corner and walks into his classroom. INT. MATH CLASROOM @Lazarus+ walks in and everyone watches him. He sits down in his seat. TEACHER All right, everyone, now since Mr. Daily has decided to join us, you need nothing on your desk except for a pencil and a calculator. Everyone does what their told. @Lazarus+ pulls out a normal calculator and sets it on his desk with his pencil. The teacher begins handing out the tests. INT. CHEMISTRY CLASROOM Leslie walks to her classroom doors and tries opening the door, but it’s locked. The teacher gets up from his desk and opens the door for her, apologizing quietly. 51. Leslie walks in as the class has already begun the test. She gives the teacher a slight grin and quickly finds her seat. There is a table at the front of the room, with a TV hanging over it. There is also a white board with magnets on it. One of the magnets has keys hanging from it. The door slams shut, startling everyone. The vibrations are sent through the walls and the TV begins to bounce slightly, one of the bolts loosening from the TV rack. The teacher grabs a test and hands it to her. INT. MATH CLASSROOM @Lazarus+ continues with his test. Near the teacher, a fan blows side to side, blowing air on her and the students whenever it passes them. @Lazarus+’s paper flutters every time the air hits him. He stares at the fan, unable to concentrate on anything else. INT. CHEMISTRY CLASROOM Leslie works on her test. She stops and looks around, setting her pencil down. She looks down at her binder, seeing pictures of her and Daisy as her binder cover. They’re pictures of them with other friends, of them when they were younger, others are the two at a camp and one special one with Leslie, Daisy, @Lazarus+, and @painseries. Her eyes become watery, but she quickly stops herself from crying, turning her binder over so she doesn’t see the pictures. Leslie goes back to working on her test, trying hard to keep the tears away. INT. MATH CLASSROOM The teacher turns off the fan and continues typing away at her computer. @Lazarus+ looks at the fan. It’s facing him. A breeze that only he can feel blows across his face, and he looks at the fan, but it doesn’t move. @Lazarus+ tries hard to finish his test, punching in numbers on his calculator. He looks up on the board and sees a formula for the sum of the interior angles of a polygon: (n-2) 180˚, but the number 180 catches his attention... 52. INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY @Sadfleck whistles as he walks down the hallway with a hall pass in his hand. He stops when he looks into a classroom and sees Leslie working on her test. He stares at her. CRAIG JOHNSON (19) walks up to @Sadfleck. CRAIG Hey man! What’s up? @Sadfleck Huh? Oh, just walking through the hallways. CRAIG What are you looking at? @Sadfleck Her. Craig looks at Leslie. CRAIG She’s cute. @Sadfleck She’s a junior. CRAIG Do you even know who she is? They begin walking down the hallway. @Sadfleck She’s one of the people who avoided the Mason Bridge disaster. CRAIG Shit man, she’s pretty damn lucky! @Sadfleck Yeah, but for how long? CRAIG What do you mean? @Sadfleck (Snapping out of it) Nothing. It’s hard to explain and you wouldn’t believe me. 53. CRAIG Whatever, man. Hey look I gotta go back to class so I’ll see you after school? @Sadfleck Sure, Craig. Craig walks off and @Sadfleck slowly walks down the hallway. INT. MATH CLASSROOM @Lazarus+ turns his test in to the teacher. He slowly walks back to his desk and sits down, fumbling with his calculator. He begins punching in random numbers and erasing them. He punches in .07734 and turns it upside down, making it say “hello.” INT. CHEMISTRY CLASROOM Leslie looks up at the girl in front of her who puts on makeup using a compact mirror. Leslie looks in the mirror and a large black shadow engulfs the mirror. The girl using it doesn’t notice it, but Leslie does and she looks behind her, and sees nothing. She looks back at the compact mirror, and the black shadow is gone. Leslie looks behind her one more time just to check. INT. MATH CLASSROOM @Lazarus+ continues to mess with his calculator, typing in 5318008, turning it upside down, making it say “boobies.” That brings a slight smile to his face, but it quickly fades away. He sets the calculator down on his desk and reaches into his backpack, pulling out one of his books. He slides it on his desk, accidentally pushing the calculator off the desk and onto the floor. One of the students sitting next to @Lazarus+ picks it up for him. He thanks them quietly and looks at the calculator. Just as he is about to erase it, he notices something. On the calculator, right side up, it reads as 317537. He looks at it closer, slowly turning it upside down. As he gets it fully upside down, those numbers morph into the name “Leslie.” 54. @Lazarus+ drops the calculator on his desk and stands up slowly. Most of the students look up at him and the teacher looks at him too. TEACHER @Lazarus+, is something wrong? @Lazarus+ looks back down at his desk at the upside down calculator. It still says “Leslie” on it. @Lazarus+ darts out of the room, the teacher standing up, but isn’t able to do anything. INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY @Lazarus+ runs out of the classroom and down the hallway. The lights above him begin to flicker as he runs under them. He passes @Sadfleck. @Sadfleck Yo, dude, where are you going? @Lazarus+ doesn’t answer. @Sadfleck quickly walks in the direction @Lazarus+’s going. INT. CHEMISTRY CLASROOM Leslie finishes her test and gets up out of her seat, walking up to the front of the classroom. As she hands her test to the teacher, another student walks out of the classroom with a hall pass, the door shutting quickly. It slams shut, the vibrations causing the most loose bolt to fall out, landing on a pile of papers quietly. The vibrations also cause the keys to fall off one of the magnets and onto the hook of a lower magnet, causing it to slide down the white board. The magnet falls into a cup of white board markers on the chalk tray, falling to the ground and markers spilling everywhere on the floor. Leslie stops and begins picking the markers up and putting them back in the cup. She steps back to pick up more markers when she slips on a few, causing her to lose her balance. She falls backwards and lands on the floor, sliding back a little. Her shoulder hits the legs of a table. A plastic cup of water falls on her, splashing on her and getting her wet. A plastic container with a few scissors fall over on top of her. Leslie shields her eyes, but is unscathed by the scissors. 55. The students giggle due to her clumsiness while the teacher stand up as Leslie picks the scissors off of her. She holds two in her hands above her face as the teacher says: TEACHER Leslie are you okay? LESLIE Yeah I think so. INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY @Lazarus+ runs up to Leslie’s classroom door and tries opening it but it’s locked. He looks through the window. @Lazarus+ Leslie!! INT. CHEMISTRY CLASROOM Leslie looks at @Lazarus+ but it’s too late. The TV comes loose from its rack and falls off, landing face down on Leslie’s head and chest, the glass screen shattering and sparks flying everywhere. Everyone in the classroom backs away to the back of the room as Leslie’s body is crushed and electrocuted at the same time. Her body convulses as sparks fly in every direction. @Lazarus+ No!!! Leslie continues to be electrocuted, her skin turning dark, charred, and bloody, blood squirting on the walls and on the floor. The sparks stop and Leslie’s body is still. Smoke fills the classroom and the students scream. The teacher pulls the fire alarm. INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY The fire alarm startles @Sadfleck as he walks over to @Lazarus+, still looking through the window, but he is in total shock. He turns around and leans against the window as @Sadfleck comes up to him. @Sadfleck (Trying to look through window) What’s going on? 56. @Lazarus+ Don’t...look... Students begin to walk out of their classrooms, confused by what’s going. @Lazarus+ slides to the floor, breaking down, and @Sadfleck looks through the window and sees Leslie’s charred body. He gasps and looks away. INT. CHEMISTRY CLASROOM - LATER Paramedics are in the room with a stretcher, along with firemen, checking the place out. @Lazarus+ waits outside the door. The paramedics slowly lift the TV off of Leslie, glass breaking and blood dripping off the TV. The paramedics get the TV off, revealing a horrific sight. One pair of scissors is stuck in her right eye, while the other pair in her other hand are stuck in her throat. INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY The paramedics pull Leslie’s dead body on the stretcher out of the classroom and down the hallway. @Sadfleck stands next to @Lazarus+. @Lazarus+ I was too late...I couldn’t have saved her, even if the door wasn’t locked, I couldn’t have saved her! @Sadfleck It wasn’t your fault, okay? @Lazarus+ No, it was. If I didn’t have that fucking premonition of the bridge collapse... @Sadfleck Don’t say that! You saved seven people including yourself! You gave us a second chance! @Lazarus+ looks back at the blood-stained area. @Sadfleck (CONT’D) But why are these things happening? Why are we all of a sudden dying? @Lazarus+ looks up at @Sadfleck. 57. @Lazarus+ I know who we can go to. EXT. TRUCK @Lazarus+ pulls out a phonebook and flips through the pages while Cara, @GloriousReader, @Sadfleck, and @painseries stand outside of the truck. He gets to the Bs section and looks through the “Blo’s” but doesn’t see “Bloodworth” anywhere. @Lazarus+ Damn it’s not in here. @painseries What are you looking for? @Lazarus+ Hold on. He continues to finger through the pages until he finds William Bludworth’s name. He flips out his phone and dials the number. CARA @Lazarus+ what are you doing? @Lazarus+ Just hold on for a second. The other line rings a few times, and finally, a dark, sinister voice comes on. MR. BLUDWORTH (O.S.) Hello @Lazarus+. @Lazarus+ You told me I’d need your help as time came by. MR. BLUDWORTH (O.S.) Ah, yes... @Lazarus+ What do you know that I don’t? MR. BLUDWORTH 1423 Harper Street. @Lazarus+ What? 58. MR. BLUDWORTH Go there and I’ll tell you. Mr. Bludworth hangs up and @Lazarus+ looks at the rest of the group. @Lazarus+ Anybody know where 1423 Harper Street is? INT. TRUCK @Lazarus+ drives with @painseries in the passenger seat, and the other three in the back. @Sadfleck Who are we going to see anyways? @Lazarus+ I don’t know, but he seems to know a hell of a lot more than we do about what is happening here. @Lazarus+ drives fast down the highway towards the country. EXT. MORGUE They arrive at a gloomy location, the trees bare and fog everywhere. Everyone gets out of the truck and looks at the large building that stands before them, built out of stone, almost medieval looking. They walk over to a large wooden door and knock on it. They wait for an answer, but the door doesn’t open. @Lazarus+ bangs the knocker on the door again. Coming from a speaker, Mr. Bludworth’s voice is heard. MR. BLUDWORTH Go around back. The five look at each other and begin their way around the building. They get to the back and find another wooden door, smaller though. @Lazarus+ pushes it open and it leads into a dark, unknown abyss. 59. INT. MORGUE They walk down a long corridor before arriving into a large, white room with two metallic tables, cabinets, and operation tools. There are white sheets on the tables, except something lies on the tables in a shape of a human form. The place is eerily quiet, until everyone jumps at the sound of a door slamming shut, the sound echoing through the building. They look at where the sound was coming from, and coming down a flight of stone stairs is Mr. Bludworth smiling at the five. MR. BLUDWORTH Ah, nice to see you again, @Lazarus+. And it looks as if you brought some friends along too. @Lazarus+ They were the ones who avoided—— MR. BLUDWORTH The bridge collapse, I know. @Lazarus+ Who the hell are you and how do you know what’s going on? Mr. Bludworth walks over to the body under the sheets, rolling the sheet off the body’s face. It’s man, bloody and bruised, and his arm is partly stitched to the rest of his body. CARA Oh my God... Mr. Bludworth begins stitching up the rest of the man’s arm, laughing. MR. BLUDWORTH @Lazarus+, are you familiar with the name Alex Browning? @Lazarus+ No, no not really... Mr. Bludworth sighs. MR. BLUDWORTH What about Kimberly Corman? 60. @Lazarus+ Yeah she’s the one who had the premonition of that pile up. MR. BLUDWORTH You, Alex Browning, and Kimberly Corman all have something in common. @Lazarus+ What’s that? MR. BLUDWORTH You three all got a second chance by cheating death. @GloriousReader Cheating death? Mr. Bludworth continues to stitch. @Lazarus+ walks over to Mr. Bludworth. @Lazarus+ What’s going on? MR. BLUDWORTH @Lazarus+, when you had that premonition, you were able to stop only a few people from going on. By doing so, you have screwed up a plan that Death had designed for you and your friends. And by screwing up Death’s plan, you really have pissed him off. @Lazarus+ Why are people beginning to die, though? MR. BLUDWORTH Just because you cheated death once, doesn’t mean it’s over already. You cheated death by not going on the bridge. Now, death must come back to finish the business. Mr. Bludworth smiles and covers up the man with the sheet. @Sadfleck So you’re saying Death is pretty much stalking us? 61. MR. BLUDWORTH @Lazarus+, let me tell you something. Think of all of this as a game that Death has set up, picking seven people off a list, and putting them on a new one. Since Death has invented the games, he has invented the rules. The first rule, Death must give a sign in order to do what he has to do. @Lazarus+ A sign...The song on the radio? The calculator? MR. BLUDWORTH Don’t ignore those signs, @Lazarus+. They’re the things that might save your friends...for a while. @Lazarus+ shifts uncomfortably. MR. BLUDWORTH (CONT’D) Now, as the victims Death has chosen, you want to live right? In order to do so, you must cheat in order to survive. @Lazarus+ And we did by avoiding the bridge disaster. MR. BLUDWORTH And once you did that, Death has come back for you and your little friends, killing them off in the order he chose for them to die in. @Lazarus+ The order...Hold on a second, though. Daisy died first in my premonition, then @painseries, and then Leslie. But I pulled @painseries away before he was killed...Why did Leslie die the next day? MR. BLUDWORTH You intervened, @Lazarus+. You were able to help @painseries cheat death once again. @painseries steps forward. 62. @painseries So that means I’m safe, now, right? Mr. Bludworth chuckles. MR. BLUDWORTH Once you’re on the list, you can’t get off of it. By pulling @painseries away from whatever was going to kill him, that only moved him to the bottom of the list...right after you, @Lazarus+. @painseries Ah, fuck man! @Lazarus+ How do we stop it? MR. BLUDWORTH @Lazarus+, one cannot stop Death from doing what he has to do, but one can overcome him for a certain amount of time. And that is by intervening. @GloriousReader Are you sure we were all meant to die on the bridge? MR. BLUDWORTH Once the premonition has started, whoever was put on the list stays on the list until Death finishes them all off, and then his job is done. @Sadfleck Fuck this. Why are we even fucking with Death, huh? Look, if it’s our time to go, it’s our time to go, right? I’m going back to the truck. I’ll wait for y’all. @Sadfleck walks out of the room and back down the hallway from where they came. @GloriousReader I’m going to wait with him. You know, just in case anything happens to him... @GloriousReader leaves, but Cara and @painseries stay. 63. @Lazarus+ Why is this happening to me? Why was I chosen to go through all of this? MR. BLUDWORTH Death chooses randomly, @Lazarus+. Like pulling names out of a hat. Once he’s chosen a certain amount of people, he sets them down on a list... Mr. Bludworth begins cleaning his operation tools. MR. BLUDWORTH (CONT’D) ...Or maybe he’s coming back to finish his duty. @Lazarus+ What do you mean? MR. BLUDWORTH @Lazarus+, have you ever cheated death before? Not like you did the day of the bridge collapse, but just on a normal day, without any signs or anything. @Lazarus+ thinks back. @Lazarus+ When...I was younger, about 15, my older brother and I were walking to a gas station just to hang out and by some snacks. We were waiting to cross the street to get to the station, unaware of the police chase further down the road. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. GAS STATION - FLASHBACK - DAY A younger @Lazarus+ stands at the light watching the crosswalk sign turn from a red hand to a white walking person. His older brother stands next to him. Police sirens can be heard in the background. @Lazarus+ (V.O.) The light turned red and that’s when we were able to cross the street. 64. @Lazarus+ and his brother begin to cross the street walking normally. Down the road, a car speeds down the road towards the crosswalk. They reach the middle of the crosswalk when @Lazarus+’s brother sees the speeding car with the police behind it. @Lazarus+, oblivious to the car, is right in its path. @Lazarus+’s brother pushes @Lazarus+ away onto the ground, but before he can jump out of the car’s path, it hits him. A little bit of blood splatters on @Lazarus+, and @Lazarus+’s brother hits the ground hard, his body twisted up. @Lazarus+ (V.O.) (CONT’D) We were both going to be hit by the car if he didn’t push me out of the way. @Lazarus+ looks up and sees his body. His face shows neither fear or sadness. CUT TO: INT. MORGUE - DAY MR. BLUDWORTH See, @Lazarus+, your brother did what you did with @painseries. He intervened, pushing you out of the way, making you cheat death. And now he’s come to pick up the pieces. @Lazarus+ looks up at Mr. Bludworth. @Lazarus+ But why did he choose dozens of innocent people to die with me? They didn’t deserve it! MR. BLUDWORTH Death can be unfair at some points, but it needs to happen. Death is just another part of life, @Lazarus+. @Lazarus+ Then fuck Death! Fuck life! Why even bother coming here? Everything would be better off if I just got onto the bridge like the premonition intended. We wouldn’t have gone through all of this. @Lazarus+ walks out of the morgue. 65. CARA @Lazarus+, wait... @painseries and Cara look at Mr. Bludworth who is getting ready to leave them. @painseries walks up and grabs his arm. @painseries How do you know so much about this kind of stuff? Mr. Bludworth smiles. MR. BLUDWORTH It’s happened to me before. Mr. Bludworth whistles a tune as he walks out, leaving @painseries and Cara staring at him as he leaves. EXT. TRUCK @Lazarus+ stomps angrily to his truck with @Sadfleck and @GloriousReader walking up to him. @Lazarus+ Come on. We’re going home. @Sadfleck What did he say? @Lazarus+ Nothing useful. Come on. @Sadfleck gets in the passenger seat while @GloriousReader gets in the back. @painseries and Cara walk out of the morgue. @painseries gets in the back but Cara walks around towards @Lazarus+’s window. CARA @Lazarus+, you can’t stop now. Two people are dead! @Lazarus+ That’s the point! They’re dead because of me! I couldn’t have stopped it! CARA No, you can stop it! You all can intervene each other. 66. @Lazarus+ And then what? Do that until we’re old and finally die of old age or a heart attack or a stroke? CARA No, but at least we can save lives by doing so. @Lazarus+ starts his truck up and Cara climbs inside. He backs out of the driveway. INT. TRUCK Everyone is quiet until @GloriousReader speaks. @GloriousReader Is he sure there is no way we can stop this? @painseries He seemed to know a lot about Death so I’m pretty sure he’s right about what he said. The truck becomes quiet again. @Sadfleck sighs. @Sadfleck We can talk about this later. Can we stop somewhere to eat? @Lazarus+ Sure. EXT. RANDY’S - DAY @Lazarus+ pulls into the parking lot and parks his truck. The five get out and walk into the restaurant. INT. RANDY’S They sit down at a table and wait for their server. A WAITRESS walks up to them, her hair in a bun, dressed in a yellow skirt and blouse with a pencil behind her ear. She pulls the pencil out from behind her ear as she flips her notebook out. 67. WAITRESS Hey all, welcome to Randy’s. What would you like to drink? @Lazarus+ Just get water for all of us. The waitress nods and hands them menus. WAITRESS Our special today is salmon cooked to perfection and our soup of the day is broccoli cheese soup. I’ll be back with your drinks. CARA Thank you. The waitress walks away and everyone looks through their menus. @Lazarus+ There has to be a way to stop it, there just has to. @painseries @Lazarus+ you heard the guy, you can’t stop Death. You can cheat him, but you can’t stop it. @Lazarus+ We can figure out a way. I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t want to live the rest of my life knowing when I’m going to die! @Lazarus+ looks around and sees a few people staring at him. He looks at his menu. The waitress comes back to the table with five waters. She sets them down in front of everyone and pulls out her notebook again. WAITRESS Alrighty then, what would y’all like to have today? CARA I’ll just have the Broccoli cheese soup. WAITRESS Small or large? 68. CARA Small, please. WAITRESS (To @painseries) And you, sir? @painseries Oh, I’m really not that hungry. @GloriousReader Yeah neither am I. CARA @GloriousReader you need to eat. @GloriousReader I’m not hungry, Cara, okay? @Lazarus+ I’ll just have a small salad thank you. WAITRESS (To @Sadfleck) And what about you? @Sadfleck looks at the menu a little longer. @Sadfleck I’ll have the salmon, and does that come with any sides? WAITRESS It comes with steamed vegetables only. @Sadfleck Oh, well that sounds...good. He hands her the menu. @Sadfleck (CONT’D) Oh, and do you put butter on the vegetables? WAITRESS Yes we do. @Sadfleck Can you hold the butter on this order? 69. WAITRESS No problem. Your food will be here shortly. The waitress walks away and @Lazarus+ leans in towards @Sadfleck. @Lazarus+ Why can’t you have any butter? @Sadfleck I’m lactose intolerant. Just a little bit of any dairy product would make me have an allergic reaction, which isn’t a pretty sight. @painseries I thought you lose the allergy as you age? @Sadfleck Yeah, unfortunately I’m one of the 10-15% of the people who don’t. @painseries That sucks. INT. RANDY’S KITCHEN The waitress hands one of the cooks the orders. The cook takes it and clips it to a hanger so he can easily see it. He begins working on @Sadfleck’s meal first. He grabs a stick of butter and is about to stick it in a pan with vegetables on it, he reads the order and sees that he needs no butter. He sets the butter on a shelf above the stove, above the pan of vegetables. He begins working on the salmon while the vegetables sit on the pan. Heat from the stove begins to rise up towards the shelf, and the butter becomes soft and mushy. The butter begins to leak out of its packet and moves towards the end of the shelf. The chef begins working on the broccoli cheese soup. The butter reaches the edge and begins dripping off onto the vegetables, splashing and soaking into the veggies. The flow of the butter gets faster and more and more of it begins dripping onto the vegetables. 70. INT. RANDY’S @Sadfleck stands up. @Sadfleck I’m going to the bathroom real quick. He gets out from the booth and walks past a WET FLOOR sign, slipping, but catching himself on a table. He knocks a few knives and forks on the ground and @Lazarus+ stands up. @Sadfleck gets up and chuckles a little. @Lazarus+ slowly sits back down. @Sadfleck (CONT’D) My bad... @Lazarus+ watches @Sadfleck go into the bathroom and he looks at the other three. @Lazarus+ He’s next. CARA What? @Lazarus+ He’s next on Death’s list. I don’t want him to know. It’s not going to make things any easier. @GloriousReader How do you know? @Lazarus+ I saw him die in my premonition, @GloriousReader. I saw him get killed. @painseries Are you sure he’s next? @Lazarus+ I’m pretty sure. @GloriousReader Yeah but if he dies, then I’m next. CARA No, no, no, no you’re not next. Nobody’s next. You can do this, you can save each other! 71. @Lazarus+ Yeah, Cara? For how long? Sooner or later, Death is going to find another way, like it did with people in the past years...Like it did with me. @GloriousReader holds Cara close to him. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) After my brother died, I haven’t been able to sleep well. Every time I closed my eyes, I’d see my brother’s body on the ground. @painseries But he saved you! He gave you a second chance, and when you made us avoid the bridge collapse, you gave yourself a third chance. @Lazarus+ Yeah, but how many more chances are we going to have? Because sooner or later, we’re going to have to die. We can’t live forever. CARA Well, like the mortician said, death is just another part of life. INT. RANDY’S KITCHEN The butter’s dripping slows down to a stop just as the cook gets a spatula and scoops up the vegetables that got buttered the most. He scoops them onto a plat along with the salmon and sets the plate on a counter, along with the broccoli cheese soup and the salad. The waitress takes the plate and sets it on a tray. She carries it to the table. INT. RANDY’S The waitress sets the plates down on the table as @Sadfleck walks back. He sits down and the waitress walks away. Those who ordered food begin eating. @Sadfleck stuffs a few vegetables in his mouth and begins to chew, but an expression of disgust comes to his face. @Lazarus+ looks at him. 72. @Lazarus+ You okay? @Sadfleck Yeah...I don’t think these vegetables were cooked long enough. @painseries So, if you had an allergic reaction, how long would it take for it to happen? @Sadfleck It usually happens in a few minutes, but sometimes there can be delayed reactions, so it could happen in a few hours...In days even. @painseries That sucks. Have you ever had one before? @Sadfleck Yeah I’ve had a few. They’re hell most of the time. EXT. ROAD - DAY A woman drives her car up a slanted hill and parks on the side of the road. She gets out and walks towards a house. A few yards behind the car is a stop sign. INT. RANDY’S - LATER Everybody’s dishes are clean. @Lazarus+ leaves money on the table and they get up and walk out. @Lazarus+ Okay, look, I usually get these signs before someone dies. If I’m able to follow them correctly, then I can probably be able to intervene. That is, if I get there in time, unlike last time. Everyone becomes quiet. They walk out of the doors. 73. EXT. RANDY’S They walk to the truck and @Sadfleck opens the passenger door. @Sadfleck Hey, @Lazarus+, you don’t happen to know who is next on the list, do you? @Lazarus+ stops what he’s doing and looks at @Sadfleck. He looks back at the other three and back at @Sadfleck. @Lazarus+ Let’s just get in the car and go home. @Sadfleck Wait, what’s going on? I just want to know. @Sadfleck looks at the three in the back. @Sadfleck (CONT’D) It’s me isn’t it? Am I next? CARA Nobody’s next. @Sadfleck Just tell me what you know, @Lazarus+! @painseries It isn’t going to make things any easier, @Sadfleck. @Sadfleck Oh my God... @Lazarus+ backs up out of the parking lot and drives out onto the road. @Lazarus+ Look, I haven’t gotten any signs or had any bad feelings or anything. Right now we’re good. @Sadfleck Yeah but for how long? @Lazarus+ I don’t know. None of us know, okay? 74. @Sadfleck Shit... They stop at a red light and a truck stops next to them. @Lazarus+ looks at the truck and reads the side. “KRITTER KILLERS” it says. @Lazarus+ focuses on the word “KILL” in “KILLERS”. Below it, it says “You Got the Jitters, We’ll Stomp those Critters!” The M in “Stomp” has been smudged, leaving it as “Sto-p”. The light turns green and the truck turns left as @Lazarus+ continues straight. EXT. ROAD A garbage truck hits a bump in the road, a piece of sharp metal falling out of it and clattering on the road, its sharp, jagged edges sticking up. The garbage truck begins going up the slanted hill where the woman had parked her car. The woman’s car’s parking break is released, and it slowly begins rolling downhill towards the stop sign. It backs into the stop sign, bending it forward at a slanted angle, sticking out over the road. INT. TRUCK @painseries rolls his window down and sticks his head out, letting the wind blow in his face. @Sadfleck’s stomach suddenly rumbles. He groans, rubbing his belly. @Lazarus+ You okay? @Sadfleck No, I don’t feel so well. @Sadfleck begins scratching his neck and face. His skin starts turning red and puffy. CARA Oh my God, @Sadfleck! Your face...! @Sadfleck flips down the visor and looks in the mirror. His face is getting red and buldgy. @Sadfleck Damn it! I think I’m getting an allergic reaction! 75. @Lazarus+ You didn’t eat or drink any dairy products, did you? @Sadfleck No! Oh God...I’m gonna blow... @Lazarus+ rolls down the window for @Sadfleck and he leans out, gagging. @painseries, disgusted, sticks his head back in, but leaving his window down. @Lazarus+ tries to concentrate on @Sadfleck and the road together when his radio turns on by itself. He looks down at it. “Stop” by Plain White T’s begins playing on the radio. @Lazarus+ stares at it, unaware of the piece of metal right ahead. @Lazarus+ runs over the piece of metal, puncturing his front right tire. @Lazarus+ swerves to the right, making @Sadfleck fall further out of the window. @Lazarus+ tries to regain control, but he can’t. The punctured tired makes @Lazarus+ swerve to the right again. The three in the back bounce around, hanging onto each other. They reach the slanted hill where the bent stop sign is. The sign skims @Lazarus+’s truck, scratching it. It’s too late for @Sadfleck as the stop sign slices through his neck, chopping his head off. Blood sprays through @painseries’s window, splattering on @painseries. @Lazarus+’s truck comes screeching to a stop when @Sadfleck’s head bounces on the back of the woman’s car. The rest of @Sadfleck’s body falls out of the window as @painseries screams, terrified, looking at the blood sprayed on him. EXT. TRUCK They get out of the truck, nobody getting out on @painseries’s side where @Sadfleck’s body lays. They walk over to the blood-stained stop sign and sees @Sadfleck’s body lying on the trunk of the woman’s car. Cara looks away and @GloriousReader tries comforting her. @Lazarus+ runs his fingers through the air, his eyes getting watery. @painseries falls to the ground and sits against the truck’s tires. INT. ROOM - NIGHT @Sadfleck lies on his back, staring up at the ceiling, his hands behind his head. He takes in a deep breath and sits up just as his mom walks into his room. 76. ERIN Hey. How’s it going. @Lazarus+ I don’t know what to do, Mom. ERIN You sound like all that’s happened is your fault. @Lazarus+ I think it is. ERIN Don’t say that about yourself. It’s not. They’re just freak accidents, they occur every day. @Lazarus+ No, Mom, they don’t. @Lazarus+ lays back down on his bed. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) These are different. Erin leans over and kisses @Lazarus+ on the forehead. She stands up and walks out of the room, turning the lights off and shutting the door. INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY - DAY The halls are empty except for the presence of Cara and @GloriousReader. The speakers come on and the PRINCIPAL speaks. PRINCIPAL (O.S.) This afternoon we are holding a memorial for the following students who have passed away: Leslie Hope... @GloriousReader kisses Cara on the forehead and they walk down the hallway. INT. CLASSROOM @painseries sits at his desk, his face burying in his hands. PRINCIPAL (O.S.) ...@Sadfleck... 77. @painseries looks up at the speaker. EXT. SCHOOL @Lazarus+ sits on a bench right outside of the school, listening to the announcement. PRINCIPAL (O.S.) ...And Daisy Wren. The memorial will be held at 3:30 outside of the school on the football field. @Lazarus+ rests his head on his hand, crying. EXT. FOOTBALL FIELD Students sit on the bleachers with the principal standing on the field with a microphone. There is a picture of Daisy, Leslie, and @Sadfleck sitting on wooden racks. @Lazarus+ sits alone at the edge of the bleachers. PRINCIPAL We are here today to be with three students who have passed away in the last two weeks. Even though we will not see them in Burkley High School any longer, we will still remember them in our thoughts and in our hearts. In honor of these three students who have attended Burkley High, we have made a memorial for them outside at the front of the school. @Lazarus+’s phone rings. He pulls it out and flips it open. It’s another text message from @painseries. He opens it and reads: “Look down.” @Lazarus+ looks over the railings and sees @painseries looking up at him. He motions to @Lazarus+ to come down. @Lazarus+ gets up and begins walking down the bleachers. @Lazarus+ and @painseries walk behind the bleachers. @Lazarus+ You know, you can always call me. @painseries I find it quicker text messaging. 78. @Lazarus+ What do you need anyways. @painseries is silent for a few seconds. @painseries @GloriousReader’s next, right? @Lazarus+ Yeah. @painseries And then you, and then me... @Lazarus+ Not unless we can find a way to avoid all of this. @painseries How? I’m with you on this one, we can’t continue intervening each other until we’re old! Death is going to continue coming after us until he finishes us all off! @Lazarus+ But if we find a way——! @painseries You heard what the mortician said, @Lazarus+! You can’t stop death! @Lazarus+ But he said you can overcome Death for a while. @painseries A while, @Lazarus+. And even if we do, do you think that’s going to bring everyone back? @Sadfleck? Leslie? Daisy? @Lazarus+ gets frustrated. @Lazarus+ Fuck you, @painseries. @Lazarus+ begins to walk away, but @painseries grabs his shoulder. @painseries What I’m trying to say is that we’re going to have to try a lot harder... 79. @Lazarus+ looks down at his feet and @painseries sighs. @painseries (CONT’D) There’s a basketball game tomorrow night here at the gym. @GloriousReader’s in the game. You’re going to need to be there, just in case anything happens. If you happen to save him, call me immediately, okay? @Lazarus+ You’re not going to be there? @painseries I don’t want to be there, because if you end up getting killed while trying to save @GloriousReader, I’m not waiting for my death to happen. @Lazarus+ I’m starting to think you’re the one becoming paranoid here, not me. @painseries Don’t fuck around. @GloriousReader I’ll give you a call. @painseries All right. @Lazarus+ and @painseries walk in opposite directions. @painseries turns around. @painseries (CONT’D) Oh, hey, and... But @Lazarus+ is gone. @painseries sighs and turns back around. @painseries (CONT’D) Be careful... INT. KITCHEN - DAY @Lazarus+ sits at the table with Erin, eating dinner. @Lazarus+ yawns and stabs at his food. Erin looks up from her plate and sees @Lazarus+ yawning again. ERIN What time did you go to bed last night? 80. @Lazarus+ 1:30. ERIN @Lazarus+, you’re going to have to start going to bed earlier. You need the sleep. @Lazarus+ But I can’t sleep. That’s the problem. ERIN Look I know you’ve been through a lot, lately, but you need to rest. I’ve decided not to let you go to school tomorrow, and let you sleep in. You’re staying home all day and night tomorrow. @Lazarus+ But Mom, what about the game? ERIN I’m sorry but you’re staying here and resting. @Lazarus+ Mom! The front door slams shut. CHRISTOPHER I’m home! ERIN Hey honey. We’re in the kitchen having dinner. CHRISTOPHER DAILY (50) walks into the kitchen, setting his briefcase down on the floor and loosening his tie. He walks over to the stove and begins preparing his own dinner. @Lazarus+ continues to stab at his food. Erin walks up to Christopher and begins washing her dishes. CHRISTOPHER What’s wrong with @Lazarus+? ERIN I won’t let him go to the basketball game tomorrow night. 81. CHRISTOPHER Why not? ERIN Chris, he needs to sleep! He’s barely gotten any rest since the accident at the bridge! @Lazarus+ looks over his shoulder at his parents. CHRISTOPHER Just let him go to the game and let him stay home for the weekend. ERIN Christopher, you don’t know what it’s been like walking into his room every night and seeing him break down over what’s happened! You’ve been too busy working late. @Lazarus+ gets up from the table, putting his dish in the sink for his mom to clean. ERIN (CONT’D) I’m going to be at a meeting tomorrow night and once again your father has to work late, so you can’t go to the game anyways. @Lazarus+ (Walking up the stairs) I’ll get a ride. ERIN You’re not——! Christopher grabs her shoulder and shakes his head. She looks at him like he’s crazy and he shakes his head again. INT. ROOM @Lazarus+ slams the door and falls onto his bed. He sits up and on a pin board are pictures of him and his friends. He stands up and walks over to it, staring at the snapshots. They’re pictures of old friends and those who avoided the bridge disaster. There is one at the bottom left hand corner of Cara, @Lazarus+, and @painseries. @Lazarus+ breathes in deeply and smiles a little, but the smile fades away. 82. Thunder crackles, startling @Lazarus+, and making him drop the picture. The picture falls into a paper shredder, getting pulled in and sliced up. @Lazarus+ quickly grabs the photo and manages to pull it out, Cara’s face shredded up while @Lazarus+’s and @painseries’ are unscathed. @Lazarus+ looks outside his window and sees lightning lighting up the sky. More thunder rumbles the earth, and @Lazarus+ stares at it angrily. He throws onto his desk and lies on his bed, staring up at the ceiling. INT. KITCHEN - DAY @Lazarus+ walks down the stairs, in the same clothes as the night before. He yawns, but tries not to make it notice as he walks into the kitchen and sees his mom. Erin looks up and sees the bags under his eyes. ERIN You get any sleep? @Lazarus+ I might have dozed off, but not a lot. ERIN @Lazarus+... @Lazarus+ Mom I can’t sleep, okay?! I don’t think you’d be able to sleep either if this were happening to you. Erin gets up and opens a cabinet, taking out a bottle of pills. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) What’s that? ERIN Sleeping pills. Take one. You’ll at least get six hours of sleep. She hands him a pill and he takes it from her, looking at it. She fills up a glass of water and hands it to him. @Lazarus+ sighs and walks away back up the stairs. INT. ROOM @Lazarus+ walks into his room, leaving the door open. He sets the glass down and sets the pill on another shelf above his head. 83. He lies down on his bed and begins reading a magazine, looking out the window every time he turns the page. INT. MASTER BEDROOM Erin gets ready for her meeting, getting dressed in a nice uniform. She slams her closet door shut. INT. ROOM The wall behind @Lazarus+ begins to vibrate and the bill begins to rumbles on the edge of the shelf. @Lazarus+ turns the page and looks out the window just as the pill falls into his cup of water. The pill dissolves into the water and @Lazarus+ looks back at his magazine. He reaches over and grabs the cup, drinking it all in one gulp. He sighs and throws the magazine on the ground. He stares out the window and his eyelids begin to drop. The pills act quickly, and slowly, he falls asleep. Erin walks in. ERIN Okay, honey, I’m going to my meeting. There’s——. She sees @Lazarus+ asleep, smiles, and shuts the door. INT. GYM The principal walks across the gym, coming to an area where there is paint on the floor. She sighs and looks around for the janitor. She sees THOMAS outside of the gym, mopping up the hallway. PRINCIPAL Thomas... Thomas looks up. PRINCIPAL (CONT’D) Can you quickly get this paint cleaned up before the game? Thomas nods and finishes cleaning up the hallway. 84. INT. JANITOR’S CLOSET Thomas walks in and grabs a new container of paint thinner. He grabs a rag and walks out. INT. GYM Thomas walks into the gym, accidentally hitting the paint thinner against the door, puncturing a small hole in it. Thomas doesn’t care about the impact and doesn’t notice the large amount of paint thinner dripping out onto the floor. He pours some of the paint thinner on the rag and sets it down next to the wall. He begins rubbing the paint off the floor. A student climbs down from a ladder as he was done setting up a banner on the wall. STUDENT Oh, sorry about that. THOMAS It’s fine. Thomas finishes up cleaning up the paint and puts the rag in his pocket. Another JANITOR calls for him. JANITOR Thomas can you come help me please? THOMAS Yeah sure. Thomas walks out of the gym. A puddle of paint thinner slowly surrounds the container. EXT. SCHOOL @GloriousReader and Cara get out of @GloriousReader’s car, walking through the parking lot towards the school. They stop at the entrance. @GloriousReader Okay I have to go around back to the locker room. CARA Okay. 85. @GloriousReader Look, don’t worry about me. @Lazarus+ said he’d be here, so if anything happens, he’ll do something about it. CARA I know. I’m just scared for you. I don’t want to lose anymore people. @GloriousReader Okay I’ll see you in a few minutes. CARA Okay, good luck! They kiss and Cara walks into the school entrance as @GloriousReader walks around the back. INT. ROOM - DAY The sun is close to beginning to set and @Lazarus+’s eyes flutter open. He sits up and stretches, grunting. Suddenly, he realizes what time it is and jumps out of bed. @Lazarus+ Shit! He grabs his phone and runs out of his room. EXT. HOUSE He runs out onto the driveway, expecting a car to be there, but it’s not. He runs back inside. INT. HOUSE He dials in @painseries’ number. @painseries (O.S.) Hello? @Lazarus+ @painseries! @painseries (O.S.) Hey, what happened? 86. @Lazarus+ I need you to drive me to the school! My mom took her car for her meeting. @painseries (O.S.) I can’t! Don’t you remember, my engine quit on me. @Lazarus+ Just get one of your parent’s cars! Anything to get us to the school! @Lazarus+ hangs up. INT. LOCKER ROOM - DAY @GloriousReader sits on a bench, putting his shoes on, dressed in a full basketball uniform. He stares down at his feet, sighing, and looks up as his teammates gather up in a group with their coach. They chant their team name and cheer for themselves. One of @GloriousReader’s TEAMMATES walks up to him. TEAMMATE Hey @GloriousReader, what’s up? @GloriousReader Oh, nothing...Just nervous about the game. TEAMMATE Dude, how are we going to lose? We’ve beaten every game we’ve played. @GloriousReader Yeah I know, but this one feels different... TEAMMATE Whatever man. Just get pumped. We’re going to need everyone on the team. @GloriousReader Yeah, sure. @GloriousReader grabs his bag and puts it in his locker. He sighs again and shuts his locker door. 87. INT. GYM Banners are taped up on the walls of the gym with the school name and mascot painted on them. One large banner is taped to a large air conditioning duct above the paint thinner. Other banners are placed lower on the wall. A man fills up balloons with a helium tank that say “#1”, handing them to children, students, and adults. Cara sits in the middle of the stands surrounded by a crowd of people, one half reserved for the home team, the other reserved for the visitor team. There are six basketball goals. All of them have been risen up towards the ceiling. A janitor walks over to the doors where there are switches for the basketball goals. He sticks a key in one of the switches and a basketball goal begins to lower down. Once the goal has been lowered all the way, he sticks the key in another switch, lowering the goal on the other end of the gym. INT. CAR - NIGHT @painseries drives down the road fast with @Lazarus+ in the passenger seat, tapping his fingers on the armrest nervously. He looks at the rearview mirror. Hanging from it is a basketball. @Lazarus+ stares at it as @painseries comes to a stop at a stop light. @Lazarus+ looks in the rearview mirror. There is a telephone pole in view. @painseries’ cell phone begins ringing. He turns on the car lights. Just as he turns on the lights, what looks like lightning strikes the telephone pole in the mirror. @Lazarus+ stares in the mirror as @painseries answers the phone. @painseries Hello? INT. GYM CARA Hey, where are you? @painseries (O.S.) Well I wasn’t planning on coming, but @Lazarus+ didn’t have a ride. 88. INT. CAR @Lazarus+ leans forward. @Lazarus+ Is that Cara? @painseries Yeah. @Lazarus+ I need to talk to her. @painseries Why? @Lazarus+ Just give me the damn phone! @painseries hands him the phone. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Cara, Cara listen to me. I think @GloriousReader’s going to get electrocuted while playing basketball. CARA (O.S.) What!? Oh my God... @Lazarus+ Just hold on, I’m going to be there in a few minutes. @Lazarus+ hangs up and hands the phone back to @painseries. INT. GYM @GloriousReader’s team walks out onto the gym and everyone stands up and begins to cheery for them. The other team walks out and everyone screams and waves their flags and balloons. Cara stands up, holding her hands to her chest. She keeps an eye on @GloriousReader. He sees her and waves to her. Cara waves nervously back. She looks up and sees the light fixtures. One of them flickers. She looks down as the game begins and @GloriousReader is handed the basketball. CARA Oh my God... 89. INT. CAR @painseries stops at a stop light. @Lazarus+ waits impatiently at the light, staring at it. @Lazarus+ Come on... INT. GYM Cara watches nervously, continuing to stare at @GloriousReader, then at the lights. @GloriousReader grabs the ball and runs for his goal. He jumps up and slam dunks it. By the force of the slam dunk, a bolt from the goal loosens. The other team scores and @GloriousReader passes the ball to one of his teammates. His teammate runs across the court, passing it to another player. He throws it at the goal and hits the board, making it in the basket. The loose bolt falls out and onto the floor, unnoticeable to anyone. Another bold loosens. The crowd stands up, cheering. Cara stands up, trying to look over everyone. The game continues as the clock ticks down. Cara gets a text message. It’s from @painseries. It says: “Meet us out front.” Cara nods and begins walking down the bleachers. @GloriousReader looks over at the stands and sees Cara leaving. He frowns but continues with the game. The ball is thrown to @GloriousReader. He dodges a few players. One is about to block him and steal his ball, but he slips on the paint thinner, letting @GloriousReader past. INT. CAR @painseries nears the school. @Lazarus+ sits up. @Lazarus+ Come on! Hurry up! @painseries I’m going as fast as I can! INT. GYM Cara reaches the bottom of the bleachers and begins heading towards the door. 90. On the other side, a man walks through the doors with two cups of water. He trips and accidentally splashes water on a woman and the wall behind her. The woman gasps and pushes him as water slips into one of the switches that lowers and raises the basketball goals. @GloriousReader throws the basketball at the goal, missing it and hitting the top, bouncing off. Sparks spray from the switch. The other loose bolt falls out and the basketball board falls to a horizontal plane. The goal begins to rise. The basketball flies behind the rising goal and gets stuck between too columns. All the players look at the goal beginning to rise in awe. One of the basketball ANNOUNCERS break in through a microphone. ANNOUNCER Uh, folks, we seem to be going through a malfunction. We’ll take care of it immediately. Cara pushes the doors open but stops and looks at her reflection in the door window. A black shadow slowly fills up the space in the window. She turns around and sees nothing. The goal rises to the very top of the ceiling, the metal wires pulling it up untwining apart. TEAMMATE (To @GloriousReader) While they’re fixing the goals, let’s get the ball down. @GloriousReader It’s too high. TEAMMATE There’s a ladder over there. We can use it. @GloriousReader runs over and grabs the ladder, taking back towards where the ball is stuck. He sets the ladder, tests it to make sure it’s sturdy, and begins climbing up. Cara walks towards the court and looks up where the goal is. The light next to it begins to flicker. CARA @GloriousReader... @GloriousReader grabs the ball, but is unable to pull it out. It’s really stuck between the columns. 91. The metal wires continue to untwine and the goal begins to shake. Suddenly, they snap and the goal begins to swing downwards. CARA (CONT’D) @GloriousReader! Cara runs over to @GloriousReader as he pulls the ball out and turns forward. The basketball goal breaks through its hinges, but is still connected to the ceiling, and slams into the wall, chopping @GloriousReader’s body in half. Blood sprays on Cara and on the goal, and blood pours out of @GloriousReader’s mouth. Everybody screams as his legs fall from the goal and onto the ground, organs spilling out onto the floor. The top half of his body falls over onto the goal and the goal swings back and forth. Everyone in the stands begins running out of the gym. Cara begins crying as she backs away, staring at @GloriousReader’s lifeless body. The people run out of the gym, someone knocking over the paint thinner and spilling it on the floor. The paint thinner begins moving in an arch on the floor, slithering quickly towards the helium tank. EXT. SCHOOL @Lazarus+ and @painseries run towards the school, but slow down when they see terrified people pouring out of the doors. @Lazarus+ begins running to the school again, @painseries slowly following behind. INT. GYM Cara slips on the paint thinner and falls to the ground. @GloriousReader pushes himself through the crowd, trying to get through. He sees Cara. @Lazarus+ Cara! Cara hold on! He sees @GloriousReader’s dead body and covers his mouth. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Oh my God...Oh my God... He continues to push his way through the crowd. Cara begins to stand up when the light fixtures above her begin flickering. @Lazarus+ sees a light fixture shaking and getting loose. 92. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Cara! The light fixture falls and Cara looks up, watching it get closer to her. It lands on the ground on the paint thinner, knocking her back. The sparks ignite the paint thinner and the flames race down the trail. The flames reach the helium tank and engulf it, while the other trail of flames reaches the container, creating high flames which light the banners on fire. @Lazarus+ is able to push his way through and he runs over to the wall of fire. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Cara, hold on! Just stay there! He runs over to the fire extinguisher, but the flames have heated up the handle, making it too hot to open up. @Lazarus+ swears and runs back to Cara. He stops. CUT TO: INT. MORGUE - DAY @Lazarus+ is talking to Mr. Bludworth. MR. BLUDWORTH Once the premonition has started, whoever was put on the list stays on the list until Death finishes them all off, and then his job is done. CUT TO: EXT. BRIDGE Cara and @GloriousReader are next to the truck, looking into the window, talking to @Lazarus+ and @painseries. CARA (To @GloriousReader) Hey I’ll meet you at the bridge later. I’ll get us a smoothie at the park drink stand. CUT TO: 93. INT. ROOM @Lazarus+ looks at the picture of Cara, @GloriousReader, him and @painseries. Cara’s face is torn up because of the picture falling in the paper shredder. BACK TO: INT. GYM @Lazarus+’s eyes get wide. He looks up at Cara. @Lazarus+ Cara! Cara you were supposed to be on the bridge when the premonition started! You were supposed to die on the bridge! The flames jump up at @Lazarus+’s face. He jumps back. @Lazarus+ looks over at the helium tank and sees it on fire. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Shit... The banner is slowly lit on fire, burning away slowly. The air conditioning comes on, and the banner begins to flow forward, detaching from the wall and flying over @Lazarus+. It lands on the ground and blows over towards the other side of the gym where it touches other banners, spreading the fire. @Lazarus+ watches the fire spread throughout the gym. He looks back at Cara who’s in tears. CARA @Lazarus+ hurry! The fire’s getting closer! @Lazarus+ looks around the area he is in. He looks back at the fire extinguisher, then at the helium tank, then at Cara. @Lazarus+ runs over to the fire extinguisher and lays his hand on the handle. By reflex, he pulls his hands back. He takes in a deep breath and grabs the handle firmly, his skin boiling beneath. Screaming, he pulls the door open and pulls the fire extinguisher out. He drops it, looking at his hand. It’s red, bloody, and bubbly. He picks the extinguisher back up and runs back to Cara. He begins extinguishing the flames. 94. @Lazarus+ Go! Now! Cara runs through the flames where the extinguisher is hitting. Her pants catch on fire as she runs through and she falls down, trying to put them out. @Lazarus+ drops the extinguisher and it rolls into the fire. He runs over to Cara, trying to help her put the flames out. A breeze brushes his neck and he turns back around and sees the extinguisher in the flames. He gets up and runs back towards it, reaching into the fire to pull it out, but it’s too late. The extinguisher blows up in his face, blowing him back against the wall. CARA @Lazarus+!! Part of the extinguisher flies through the air, hitting another light fixture, detaching it from the ceiling. @painseries runs in and sees @Lazarus+ against the wall. Then he sees Cara, and then the light above her, breaking apart. @painseries Cara look out! Cara looks back at @painseries as the light falls towards Cara. He runs over to her, grabbing her and beginning to pull her back. The light lands on her legs, exploding into flames, catching her legs on fire. She screams trying to put it out but the fire is too big. @painseries takes his jacket off and puts it on her legs, putting the fire out. @Lazarus+, dazed, looks up at Cara and @painseries. He tries getting up, but he hurt badly. @painseries is about to run to @Lazarus+ when he stops him. @Lazarus+ @painseries! Get Cara out of here! @painseries What about you!? @Lazarus+ I found a way to stop all of this! I have to die! @painseries What!? 95. @Lazarus+ It’s the only way! Get the hell out of here! @painseries But...! @Lazarus+ Trust me. @painseries, frustrated, backs away, stomping his foot on the ground and running back for Cara. He grabs her and helps her out of the gym. @Lazarus+ looks over at the helium tank and sees it’s fully engulfed in flames. He looks up at the ceiling. @Lazarus+ (CONT’D) Fuck you, Death. EXT. SCHOOL @painseries and Cara barge through the door and down the steps towards everyone else. A few adults run over and help @painseries with Cara, her legs badly burned. INT. GYM @Lazarus+ looks over at the helium tank, coughing due to the smoke. The tank explodes, spreading through the gym as a giant fireball, engulfing @Lazarus+, burning his skin off. EXT. SCHOOL The gym explodes and debris flies through the air. Everyone covers their heads and faces as the fireball rises up into the sky. @painseries, horrified, stares at the burning school, while Cara mourns for both @GloriousReader and @Lazarus+. In the distance, sirens can be heard. FADE OUT. FADE IN: INT. SUBWAY - DAY SUPER: 4 Years Later 96. Cara and @painseries, both changed and older looking, sit on the subway, the lights flickering once in a while and the entire train shaking. Cara’s eyes are closed and @painseries tries to get her attention. @painseries Cara...Cara? Cara! Cara wakes up, looking around. CARA Are we there? @painseries Two more stops. CARA Oh okay. @painseries Are you sure you’re okay? CARA Yeah...Just thinking about...them. @painseries Yeah I know what you mean. But you gotta get over it some time. CARA I know. She shivers. CARA (CONT’D) You think it’s really over? @painseries Hey, look, it’s been four years since that last accident. It’s over. Nothing’s happened, and nothing will. It was your turn to go, but @Lazarus+ got in the way of your death, getting himself killed, and screwed up Death’s plans. CARA I don’t know why I’m still worrying. @painseries You gotta get over it some time. 97. CARA Second chance... Cara smiles. The subway comes to a stop and people get on and off. The subway starts up again. CARA (CONT’D) Next stop, right? @painseries Yeah. Cara sighs and rubs her knees. A newspaper blows across the aisle, catching Cara’s interest. She watches it as it blows down the aisle, and she searches for anything that could of caused it, but finds nothing. MR. BLUDWORTH (V.O.) One cannot stop Death from doing what he has to do, but one can overcome him for a certain amount of time. CARA Hey, @painseries... @painseries Yeah? CARA Are you sure @Lazarus+ got himself killed? @painseries Cara, drop it already. It’s in the past, we don’t need to think about it anymore. Nobody does. CARA I know, but... @painseries But what? CARA @Lazarus+ told me @GloriousReader was probably going to get electrocuted. But he was killed by the basketball goal. One of the lights fell causing the fire... @painseries What are you trying to say? 98. CARA What I’m trying to say is that I don’t think I was supposed to die in the fire. That other light was going to fall on me, but you pulled me back. @painseries remains quiet. CARA (CONT’D) Which means that when @Lazarus+ was blown back by the explosion, you intervened but pulling me away from the light which was bound to kill me... There is a commotion at the end of the train. Cara and @painseries look at the end of the cart. WENDY CHRISTENSEN is screaming at her friend KEVIN FISCHER and her sister JULIE CHRISTENSEN. WENDY We gotta get out! Kevin jumps for the emergency brakes, but they don’t do a thing. KEVIN It’s not working! Somebody stop the train! Cara and @painseries look at each other, terrified. Wendy tries opening the doors, as does Julie, but it’s no use. The subway derails, and Cara and @painseries scream as they fall out of their seats, the lights bursting and sparks raining down. The front of the subway explodes and breaks in half. Debris and other objects are flung through the air like bullets. @painseries slides down the aisle. The train slams into a column, stopping for a moment. @painseries flies out the opening and onto the track. The train continues moving, the wheel disconnected from the tracks. @painseries looks in front of him, the wheel coming towards his head. He screams, and the wheel runs over him just as we... CUT TO BLACK 99.
