SCENE SIXTEEN
INT. INFIRMARY-TIME IS UNKNOWN

A hand reaches out touching Savannah’s shoulder.She moves a bit yawning before looking up.The hand belongs to the female voice from earlier.It is Chandra.Savannah nearly falls out of her seat at the sight of her mother wearing the uniform of a captain.It takes her a few seconds before she throws her arms around her mom and just hangs onto her for several seconds ignoring Kade.

SAVANNAH
Mom!
CHANDRA

Oh Savannah, dear, I’ve missed you greatly.

SAVANNAH

I was kicked out.

CHANDRA

Everything is gonna be alright.

SAVANNAH

How do you know?

CHANDRA

I don’t.It’s my job to lie to you.I am

the captain of this ship.

SAVANNAH

What ship?

CHANDRA
Mine.
SAVANNAH

We need to save Kade.

CHANDRA

There are more important things to do.

SAVANNAH
But…
CHANDRA
Savannah Storm!You’re father sacrificed his

life to save over a million people.Maybe even

a billion people…I dare you to do the same.

Come with me.Forget Project T709.

SAVANNAH

His name is Kaden!

CHANDRA

That’s what he wants you to think.Now come

with me.

SAVANNAH

What else is so important that I have to do that

I have to leave his side?

CHANDRA

Save the world.Save the universe.Savannah…

SAVANNAH

I get it.

CHANDRA

You have five minutes then you have to leave.

You’re coming with me with the others.Kade

is unneeded in our line of combat.

SAVANNAH

But I…

She trails away and looks down at Kade’s peaceful face while he lays there fast asleep still.Slowly, she raises to her feet.Chandra leaves her to peace with Kade.Once Chandra is gone, Savannah leans over looking into Kade’s closed eyes.

SAVANNAH

Kade, can you hear me?I’m so sorry.I have

to leave and now I’m mad.Sad.Upset.If there’s

one thing that I regret is not getting to know you.

It’s just that…there’s something…

She trails away because Kade’s eyes start to flicker and his hand moves a bit.Suddenly, he sits up gripping his head and all the lights explode in the room before emergency back up turns on.The machines attached to him are fried while Savannah stands there in shock.He settles down hyperventilating before looking up into Savannah’s eyes.

SAVANNAH

Calm down, nothing bad is going to happen.

KADE
Savannah!
SAVANNAH

It’s ok.I know these people.

KADE

What are they doing to me?

SAVANNAH

I know everything.

KADE

They told you my secret?

SAVANNAH

About how you’re a soldier and not even

human.All of it.I don’t know what to

think anymore.

KADE

I didn’t want you to know that.

SAVANNAH

Yeah I figured.

KADE
Savannah it’s because I…
SAVANNAH

So tell me what’s your real name?

KADE

Did you not hear what I said?

SAVANNAH

Yes and I ignored it.

KADE

Project T709 of Genesis.

SAVANNAH

How were you born?

KADE

I don’t know.

SAVANNAH

What else can you do?

KADE

Run fast.See better.Hear better.Jump higher.

SAVANNAH

Listen closely to me, they’re going to send you

off to war and this is what I want you to do for

me.Run.Look for danger.Listen for danger.

When you hear it or see it…

(hesitates)

all I want you to do is run.Do you understand?

KADE
Yes.
SAVANNAH

I hate brave men.That’s why my father is dead.

KADE

Savannah, why are you leaving me?!

SAVANNAH

I don’t know.

KADE

Please don’t.

SAVANNAH
Why?

For about a minute or two Kade sits there staring at her while Chandra starts to bang on the glass.The two never look away from each other.A single tear rolls down Kade’s cheek and he wipes it away with a hand that has an IV still attached to is even though it’s no longer working after his little episode.

SAVANNAH

I have to go.

KADE

I know.

SAVANNAH

What aren’t you telling me?

KADE

It’s a secret.Forget it.

SAVANNAH

What if I told you my secret?

KADE

Mine is better.

SAVANNAH

It always is isn’t it.

Kade sits there.The words “I love you” are on his tongue but he does not say them while he gazes at her.Chandra stops banging on the window and comes into the room where she starts to pull Savannah away except Kade clings to her hand.Still “I love you” is on his tongue yet he is unable to say it.In the background, outside the room, is Zoie, Jaxon, Jaiden and Ryker all watching the scene in front of them.

KADE

No, I have to tell you my secret.

SAVANNAH
What?!Damnit!What is it?!

Kade hesitates.Within a second, Chandra starts to drag Savannah out and it is fast because she does not resist.It is as if she knows what Kade is going to say yet does not want him to utter those three powerful words.Savannah starts to wave by to him.

KADE
(shouts)
SAVANNAH!I…

He’s cut off by the hissing of pressure and a door sliding shut.Savannah is on the other side where she is unable to hear him.He leaps out of his bed and runs to the window where he stands lying a hand on the window.For one last second, Savannah stands there staring at him while lying her hand over his hand as if they are touching.

KADE
(whispers)

I love you.

INT. ROOM (BESIDE INFIRMARY)

Chandra drags Savannah away from the window.She quickly takes control and turns around leaving Kade behind.The rest of the group stands there staring at her.They are puzzled just as much as she is.

ZOIE

Why isn’t Kade coming with us?

CHANDRA

His name is not Kade.It is Project

T709 and that is what you will call

him.Now please follow me.
SAVANNAH

What are we doing?

CHANDRA

Finishing what your father couldn’t.

SAVANNAH
(whispers)
What?
Chandra walks away without listening to Savannah’s question.Nor does she wait for any more.She walks away from them and they all follow.
CUT TO: INT. CONTROL ROOM

Chandra takes everybody into a large, circular room that is sterile white and black.Everybody is at work as she cuts across the room.She takes a seat in a large black chair in the middle of the room and stares out a large window revealing the universe around them.Everything vibrates a little.Savannah slowly approaches her mom while staring out the window along with everybody else.Before them are a bunch of planets and stars.A sight nobody has ever seen before in their life.

SAVANNAH

Where are we going?

CHANDRA

You’ll know in good time.

ZOIE

Why aren’t you explaining things?

RYKER

Please let us know.

JAXON

We can consider this kidnap.

CHANDRA

If you don’t shut up it’ll be more like

kidnapping.I’ll have to throw you all

in the brig and that won’t be fun.

Everything becomes silent.A smile spreads across Chandra’s face and she crosses her legs.The ship starts to move which is obvious by staring out the window.They are moving forward coming closer and closer to the other planets.

EXT. OUTER SPACE

The space ship drifts forward into space away from the space station.On the side of the ship it says: U.S.S Tolen Storm.It starts to head towards the planets.There is nothing else out in space though.It appears that they are the only ones around.The space ship drifts several feet away from the station before there’s a strange buzzing sound.It suddenly shoots forward and disappears into space.

FADE OUT
SUPERIMPOSE: TO BE CONTINUED
FADE
END
