SCENE FIFTEEN
 
INT. GIANT ROOM (SPACE STATION)-WHAT IS ASSUMED TO BE NIGHT
 

Storm presses her face against a window staring out at the vast universe. She gazes at moons, planets, stars and even distant galaxies that are seen afar. Behind her are footsteps. Zachary sneaks up behind her grabbing onto her swinging her around a bit. Her feet fly out as she starts to giggle. Then he puts here back on the ground and stands there gazing into her eyes.

 
 
ZACHARY

I missed you so much Savannah.

 
 
STORM
It’s Storm now.
 
ZACHARY

But Savannah is prettier.

 
 

Storm stands there smiling at him slowly she realizes that she has to become her old self again because that is what Zachary wants. From here on out (for the most part) Storm becomes Savannah again.

 
 
ZACHARY

So are you going to fill me in on everything

that has been going on in your life?

 
SAVANNAH
No. I need to know where Kade is.
 
ZACHARY

Um who?

 
SAVANNAH

The guy that I was with.

 
ZACHARY

Oh yeah. Um about that. Do you not realize

who he is?

 
SAVANNAH
Where is he, Zachary?!
 
ZACHARY

Let me explain first.

 
SAVANNAH

WHERE IS HE?!

 
 

Zachary scurries away signaling her to follow him taking her down a hallway.

 
INT. HALLWAY
 

The hallway is long and plain for the most part. The floor is a sterile white while they are in some sort of tube made of plastic like in an aquarium where it is easy to look out and see the vast universe where very many have traveled before. Savannah struggles to keep up with him while looking around in aw.

 
INT. ROOM
 

The next room is cut off from the surrounding universe. The place is white. A sterile white that burns the eyes of people when they walk in. There is a large window that reveals a room that is a light blue and white color. There’s all sorts of medical equipment within the room. Lined up before the one window are several cots. On the first one is Adam, next is Roulette, the one in front of Savannah is Kade. He is lying all curled up on his side. He is attached to a heart monitor along with other equipment that keeps him sedated. There are others who are unknown.

 
 
SAVANNH

What are you doing to him?!

 
ZACHARY

Calm down. This is why I wanted to explain to

you what was happening first. If you saw I knew

you wouldn’t understand. None of you do.

 
SAVANNAH
(hisses)
What is going on here?
 
ZACHARY

Your ‘friend’ here isn’t what he tells you.

 
SAVANNAH

Look, I know his secret.

 
ZACHARY

You do?

 
SAVANNAH

He’s an alien. He moves things with his mind.

Although he told me he was a Vulcan or something

like that, which was hilarious.

 
ZACHARY

Kade is more human than alien, which is saying a lot

since he’s neither.

 
SAVANNAH
What are you talking about?! I don’t understand! Lies!
 
 

A door from the room they stand in front of slides open. The pressure hisses and the doctor steps out. He lingers there for a second or two gaping at Savannah. They have not seen each other since he kicked her out. Slowly, the doctors stumbles over to Savannah while he continues to gawk.

 
 
DOCTOR
Savannah?
 
ZACHARY

Dad explain it to her. Everything.

 
DOCTOR

Savannah, for once in your life, just stand here and listen

to what I have to say. It deals with a lot of information

that’ll make your life a lot easier.

(pauses)

There has been this war going on, which I’m not going to

get into. But our enemy started a project where they

wanted to create superhuman soldiers like from a comic

book to help them win the war. Your friend here, happens

to be one of it. He is apart of the Project Genesis. Project

T709.
 
SAVANNAH

Why T whatever?

 
DOCTOR
Telekinesis. He is the best and the worst of the T7s.
 
 
SAVANNAH

You can’t be the best and the worst.

 
DOCTOR

Project T709 is dying. Slowly. Like from a disease. They

were able to stop it for later people but it is the same for the

girl. She is also dying. She is apart of Project Genesis but

she is Project P4098. The P stands for persuasion.

 
ZACHARY

Are you sure it isn’t promiscuous

 
SAVANNAH

Not the time, Zach!

 
ZACHARY

You know I hate it when you call me that!

 
SAVANNAH

The point!

 
DOCTOR

Meanwhile, Adam is newer. But not better than the first

two although he’s not dying.

 
SAVANNAH

Are you going to kill them?

 
DOCTOR
No.
 
SAVANNAH

What are you going to do to them?

 
DOCTOR

They were made to be soldiers. We need more soldiers

since drafting is no longer allowed.

 
SAVANNAH

That’s not fair.

 
DOCTOR

They aren’t human.

 
SAVANNAH
But…
 
DOCTOR

The two are dying anyway. We have no idea when their

expiration date is but it might come soon or years from

now. Now let Zachary fill you and the others in on

everything while they are asleep.

 
 

Zachary went to grab her hand but she pulls away throwing herself into the window pressing her nose against the thick plastic while watching Kade lie there fast asleep. All of their heart beats are faster than normal. They speedy beat is not soothing at all. She just hands there staring.

 
 
ZACHARY
Savannah!
 
DOCTOR

Leave her alone.

 
SAVANNAH

I want to go in there.

 
DOCTOR

They might kill you…

 
SAVANNAH

I WANT TO GO IN THERE!

 
DOCTOR

Do what you have to do…

 
 

He trails away watching as she runs into the room. The doors slides open but it’s not fast enough for her. She forces it open more with her hands before running into the room where she kneels beside Kade’s bed and starts sobbing while pressing her face against her stomach. There is no stopping her. Only Zachary and the doctor watch her from the window, she is seen from the window.

 
 
ZACHARY

Shouldn’t we do something about this?

 
DOCTOR

She loves him.

 
ZACHARY

This is Savannah we’re talking about. She loves

me. It’s obvious still. She couldn’t keep her paws

off me at the ball.

 
DOCTOR

You may have some tough competition because she

doesn’t even realize it yet.

 
ZACHARY

What makes you think that?

 
DOCTOR

Just a feeling.

 
ZACHARY

What do I do now?

 
DOCTOR
Wait?
 
ZACHARY
Why?
 
DOCTOR

Savannah is also very important in our equation. She

is Tolen’s daughter after all.

 
ZACHARY

What does that mean?

 
 
There are footsteps behind them as somebody new enters. 
 
 
FEMALE VOICE

You’ll all know in good time.
