Ext-Woods-Night

  VICTOR is a teenage boy dressed in military uniform and gear. He holds a large shotgun in his hand. He is running through the dark woods frantic and scared.

VICTOR

(highly distressed)

JASMIJN! JASMIJN!

Victor continues running but continually stops pointing his gun at shadows in the woods. The sound of bombs and guns shooting can be heard in the background.

VICTOR

JASMIJN! Where are you?

A bush covered in white flowers rustles and VICTOR stops pointing his gun at it.

VICTOR

Come out with your hands up and I won’t shoot!

The bush continues to rustle. VICTOR’s face grows in fear. His finger placed on the trigger.

VICTOR

(sternly)

I said come out with your hands up and weapons on the ground!

Victor his spooked by the loud bang of a gun going off nearby and pulls his trigger. The sound of a girl screams briefly.

VICTOR

JASMIJN?

VICTOR moves forward slowly, his gun still pointed, and moves the bush branches away, revealing JASMIJN, a young teenage girl dressed in civilian clothing, laying shot dead on the ground. VICTOR drops to his knees and begins to sob.

VICTOR

(screaming)

JASMIJN!
