Part 2 of the story.

ALLAN:
So? SO? Do you realize what will happen? The first to die- to be raped, murdered on the streets- will be females and children. Within a year, two-thirds of the galaxy will be destroyed. There will be so many dead, and those that remain will be small groups that have their own rules. We’ll never be able to rebuild, and that’s the beginning. Trust me. I’ve lived for a long time…
 
PHOENIX:
Look, I don’t want to hear it! It’s not like I want them to win! But I can’t help you!
 
ALLAN:
Yes you can, Phonenix! And you know it! Deep down, you realize that you can make a difference. You can save lives, instead of taking them away.
 
(Phoenix pauses)
 
PHOENIX:
I…I can’t do it. I’m sorry, but I can’t. Thanks for the hospitality.
 
(Phoenix begins to leave)
 
ALLAN:
Before you go…will you just think about it? 
 
(Phoenix leaves the room)
 
(Kyle is waiting outside as Phoenix walks to him)
 
KYLE:
So, how did it go?
 
PHOENIX:
We…uh, argued and stuff. He wants me to think about it.
 
KYLE:
Alright. You wanting to go home?
 
PHOENIX:
Yeah.
 
(As “Hollow” plays in the background, Phoenix and Kyle walks to Kyle’s shuttle. Before getting in, Phoenix takes one last look at the school. He has this angry, regretful glare, and gets in the shuttle. Allan is shown standing and examing a list of battles they’ve lost on a computer screen. He looks down in sadness.)
 
(Mody is teaching a class in the school how to use a shotgun. We see 59 continue to fly around the school, examining things. We see Sally sitting down and looking in a mirror. An alien’s gray hands get near her, but they put a neckless on her neck. She smiles as he does this and looks up at the alien, who we can gather is her lover.)
 
(An empty street with dead, bloody bodies on the ground is shown. There are signs plastered on buildings that read “We don’t need rules, we have our bodies!” and “Laws control too much”)
 
(Phoenix is in his house again, staring at a locked locker. He opens it. Another locker is inside. He opens that. Another one. He opens that and finally pulls out a picture of Paulie, the little girl from the beginning. He looks at it and tries not to cry. Suddenly, his fist starts shaking uncontrollably. He freaks out and puts the picture back and begins locking it all again.)
 
(We see him running as he shakes and then trips on the floor)
 
PHOENIX:
No! No! Not yet!
 
(He’s running and then keeps falling down. He’s screaming as his body starts to shift and change shape and color, back to the demon. He keeps running and goes down the stairs to a basement with a cage. As he runs in the cage, he struggles to lock it from the inside as the screen cuts to black)
 
(A man in a black uniform is walking down a blue and dark hall. He stops in front of 2 nearly naked female guards with spears and the bringer fist tattoos on their shoulders. They‘re dark skinned female humans with black lipstick and eyeliner, wearing black latex that leaves little to the imagination.)
 
MAN:
Zotoleum requested me.
 
(The 2 girls allow him to pass. He walks on to the end of a dark black room, where Zotoleum sits on a high throne, with his back turned from the man. In front of Zotoleum are windows revealing space. They’re on a ship.)
 
MAN:
They got Phoenix. The bringers weren’t able to poison him. 
 
(Zotoleum continues to sit, silent)
 
MAN:
Nothing has changed, of course. You were right. Plan B is in effect, after all.
 
(Zotoleum titls his head so we see his squid-face. He slowly smiles)

Okay, this was shorter so I already read it, and I feel bad for Phoenix, having to go through all that and when Paulie died that was kind of sad. But anyway, this was a great read, and kept my attention throughout. Great job.

I have to totally agree with Shada Storm on that one....it was shorter but it was still a brilliant read...you know how to keep your audience gripped and on the edge of their set...I would love for this to become a movie I think it would be brilliant :)
