SCENE 4:

Beast:

I think I shot my thumb off!

MARY:

You poor tortured soul.

STRANGER:

I’m coming to get my gun.

BEAST:

I am now the Shadow so you won’t be able to find me.

STRANGER:

I can see you behind that rock you stupid idiot.

BEAST/ SHADOW:

That’s not me. That is the Beast, I am somewhere else!

MARY:

I think he is starting to hallucinate.

GERALD:

I wish he would die, then I could get home to have a bath.

MARY:

Please, Gerald, have some compassion, all you have done is crap your pants.

GERALD:

I don’t care; he tried to kill us all.

STRANGER:

If you could both create a diversion, I could sneak up on him and slit his throat!

MARY:

He is ill, can’t you see that?

STRANGER:

He is a raving lunatic! He stabbed me in the arse-hole, took my wallet and my shotgun.

GERALD:

If I had my way I would bury him in shit.

STRANGER:

And you should know, eh?

MARY:

Let us all calm down.  (A car approaches)

Thank God, it’s my friend Jennifer.

JENNIFER:

What are you doing out here at this time?

MARY:(Pointing to a section of wood)

We are trying to get away from David Joyce, he is somewhere in that wooded area.

JENNIFER:

Really, I thought he was in the loony-bin.

STRANGER:

He will be in his grave when I get hold of him.

JENNIFER:

Why? What did he do?

GERALD:

He made me crap myself!

STRANGER:

Who the hell’s bothered about you! I have been stabbed in my arse .

MARY:

And I have a twisted ankle. We have to get away from here before he comes back. Have you got a phone?

JENNIFER:

No, I forgot it.

(“The Shadow” alias “The Beast” has crept up behind the car and has stabbed the tires.)

JENNIFER:

Hurry and get in. What’s that noise?

STRANGER:

That bloody little bastard has stabbed your tires.

JENNIFER:

What? I only just bought them!

SHADOW/ BEAST:(jumps out from behind a tree and is stood behind Jennifer’s car.)

Finally I have you all in my sights; you will all suffer a slow and painful death.

Mary:

My God, has he got more ammo?

STRANGER:

No, he’s bluffing! I checked the gun before, but I must have missed the one round that he shot himself with.

GERALD:

I’m starting to feel unwell in my stomach again!

STRANGER:

Bloody-hell no, this is a nightmare! Look here, you raving nut-case, either get it over with or give up!

But whatever you do, kill him first.  (Pointing to Gerald)

GERALD:

You uncaring bastard, I’m glad he stabbed you in the arse.

MARY:

Please let us all calm down.

JENNIFER:(Starting to panic) 

I don’t know what to do. I feel unwell.

SHADOW/ BEAST:(Laughing)

At last, my time of recognition has come.

JENNIFER: (Tries to put the car into gear but she has put it into reverse and accelerates over the Beast/Shadow breaking both his legs.)

STRANGER:

Jump out and I will run over his head.

MARY:

Please help him, he is injured.

BEAST/SHADOW:

I feel hurt but I can’t understand why?

JENNIFER:

My God, is he OK?

MARY:

I think so but you never know with accidents like this.

THE BEAST/SHADOW:(Lying face up with the wolf mask still on.)

You will all pay for this when I get up.

STRANGER:

Don’t risk it, run over him again.

MARY:(Looking up the road.)

I see my son’s car coming, thank God!

JOHN WISON:(Looking confused.)

Where have you been, I’ve been phoning you but all I got was heavy breathing and wolf sounds!

STRANGER:(Pointing to the Beast/Shadow.)

Blame this bastard.

JOHN WILSON:

Is that Dave Joyce?

BEAST/SHADOW:

You just ran over my hand you careless shit. But fortunately I don’t feel pain now.

JOHN WILSON:

Is he for real?

MARY:

I feel sorry for him he’s been through so much. Phone the emergency services John.

GERALD:

What’s that noise?

STRANGER:

I thought it was you.

MARY:

He just stabbed your tire John!

JOHN WILSON:

The freak! I’m phoning the police.

THE BEAST/SHADOW:

You are all doomed.

STRANGER:

Take that bloody knife off him someone.

The End.
