Please be aware that this is part seven of an ongoing script

Overview

Grunwald Magnusson was always a lonely person, ever since childhood where he struggled to understand people. People were his antagonists. People were always interfering in his life. Why did his father give him this ridiculous name and leave him when he was only five years old? Only his father could tell him what to do with his life. He left him a coded message which took Grun months to decipher. The message was locked in a cabinet under the mirror which Grun was always frightened to look into. It had runic symbols running around it. His mother had given Grun the key when he turned twenty-one. Grun had found another key in the cabinet and a letter. The letter was from his father. It said he must begin the quest? After much work, Grun finally managed to find the hidden box. Why didn’t his mother know anything about it, or anything relevant about his father? She said she was told by Grun’s father never to sell the house and to give him the key.

Grun is on the threshold of something which would alter his life forever.  The box which was buried in the outhouse under the floor contains an assortment of things. It will take Grun three years to even begin to understand them. The main thing is the book.

After another three months of decoding, he found the second letter hidden behind the fitted bookshelf. The letter said that he should stand in front of the mirror at a certain time and he would be given certain powers!

The time is the spring equinox. Grun stands in front of the mirror at twelve o clock. He meditates for several minutes with his eyes closed. When he opened them he can see a man writing a message on the inside of the mirror. He knows this man to be his father.

Grun has copied the message which remains for ten minutes after his father disappears. Grun is disappointed at not being able to talk with his father, but he knows that his father has Grun’s welfare at heart. Grun starts to practice the exercises which were given him. The details are too secret to 

Scene Twenty: Grun’s Bedroom

Grun is now in a depression. He knows that The Dragon has increased in power and ferocity.

The dog’s cats and birds that were killed would normally have been spared. For some reason, The Dragon is starting to exert itself. Grun will have to ask his father what to do. The problem now, though, is how to get out of the house to meet Kyle. He wishes he had left earlier. There will be marksmen covering each window with high-powered rifles. He will have to open the window to get out, and they will see that, and if they fire upon it, they will get killed. He wishes he had left the window open before, but like his dad said, learning to be proficient isn’t easy. The only other option would be to phone the police and tell them he is coming out, and then walk out in invisibility mode.

Grun: (on the phone)

I want to speak to someone in charge of the Magnusson case.

Detective sergeant Watkins:

Yes, how can I help you? 

Grun:

I am Grun Magnusson, I want to come out.

Detective sergeant Watkins:

OK, just give me a few minutes to get authorization, and I will phone you back.

 Grun’s phone rings.

Chief Superintendent Barton:

Is this Grun Magnusson?

Grun:

Yes, I want to come out.

Chief Superintendent Barton:

Alright, I will set it up. Tell me exactly what time you will come out and what door you will use.

Grun:

I will use the front door at twelve noon today.

Chief Superintendent Barton:

Very well, we will be there. Make very sure you don’t have anything on you which could be seen as a weapon.

Grun:

You are referring to the man who got killed in the hedge; I have to say it wasn’t me who did it.

 Chief Superintendent Barton:

That will be decided later. Make sure you come out with your hands on your head and when you get down the steps, take another three steps and then lie down on your stomach.

  Grun:

OK. (Grun puts the phone down)

The time is now eleven o clock. He has to meet Kyle at two o clock. Grun hears a loud crack and knows that a hedgehog has come too close to the invisible line and has been burned.

The Dragon is becoming uncontrollable. Grun dreads to think what will happen later. He sits down to meditate. He finds himself in a temple standing inside a circle of druids, the elder druid walks up to Grun and tells him that his father has now been excommunicated. Grun feels sick.

Grun:

Why didn’t you stop him before he brought The Dragon?

Elder:

We didn’t know. Your father had gained powers that were unknown at the time; he had gained access to one key, but as you know, he could not acquire the other. You have been contracted to get it; it is now in the vault at the British Library in London. Find out through your friend Kyle Simonson when it will be taken out and where it will be taken.

Grun:

How can I be expected to get away with this? I am only just starting to get the needed powers at this time.

Elder:

No, you are a past master and have been for a very long time. I have to give you the higher initiation now. You have bypassed many initiations over the last few days. Please believe in yourself.

Grun: (becomes conscious)

The time is now two minutes to twelve. Grun focuses his mind and walks to the door; Grun presses the coin to become invisible. He opens the door but doesn’t walk out. Grun decides to wait. Chief Superintendent Barton's voice comes over the loudspeaker.

Chief Superintendent Barton:

Come out with your hands on your head.

Grun waits for another few minutes.

Chief Superintendent Barton:

Mr. Magnusson, if you don’t come out you will force us to open fire. We have an anti-tank gun here and it will blow the side of the house down.

Grun: (shouts)

I will come out in a few minutes; I have to use the toilet. I have to tell you that if you use that weapon you will get hurt, be warned.

Grun then walks out of the door quietly and tiptoes down the steps and walks up the path to the gate, he ducks under the police line and looks around to see many people farther up the road behind a police cordon. There are many newspaper people and reporters from all over the world. Grun has to make up his mind about which part of the cordon to get through. He decides to climb over Nichol’s garden fence through to the back and over the wall and through to the main road. Grun will meet Kyle at the canal crossing in the woods where they use to meet as kids.

Scene Twenty One: House

 

  Chief Superintendent Barton has to make a decision. The time has elapsed for Grun to come out of the toilet and there is no response from him. He was now talking with Lieutenant Colonel Roberts.

Chief Superintendent Barton:

He must be in there, but there is no response.

Lieutenant Colonel Roberts:

He has had ample time to comply. I feel he is planning something. I think we should use the weapon.

Chief Superintendent Barton:

OK, I will radio in that I am handing over the matter to you.

Lieutenant Colonel Roberts:

Very well, Sergeant Major Higgins, prepare the eighty-four millimeter for use.

  Sergeant Major Higgins:

Very well, sir, Corporal Jones, stand by to fire.

 Corporal Jones:

OK, sir, right, Clarke and Smith, load and wait for the word.

 Lieutenant Colonel Roberts:

Magnusson, I am giving you just five minutes to come out, we are preparing the anti-tank weapon for use.

The Colonel and Chief Superintendent Barton together with several other people are stood to the left of the anti-tank weapon and behind a wooden barricade which is at the side of the house. The weapon will be fired just above the window. The blast will, so they think, will bring down the side of the house. The five minutes is up and Lieutenant Colonel Roberts gives the word to fire.

The weapon is fired; there is a ball of fire as the high explosive round hits the invisible line and then it returns at high speed to the weapon crew. There is an almighty blast as the anti-tank gun explodes and the fire reaches the other high explosive rounds stored at the side. Everyone within fifty yards of the blast is dead. Reporter John Winfield is staring in disbelief as two of his team are killed.

 

Scene Twenty-two: Canal Crossing

Grun can see Kyle sitting down on the old tree stump where they used to play leapfrog. Grun looked around to make sure there is no one around. He doesn’t want to be betrayed again. He is pretty sure Kyle is on the level. He quickly hides behind a tree and pressed the coin and then steps out, and walked up to Kyle.

Kyle:

Grun, where did you spring from?

Grun;

You must be getting old; at one time you would have spotted me a hundred yards away.

Kyle:

I know, but I‘m sure you didn’t come from up there because I have been looking all the time.

Grun:

Just put it down to experience. I have had a lot of training in concealment. Well, how are you?

Kyle:

OK. What about you? What’s all this about you in the papers?

Grun:

It is mostly to do with my father. Will you believe me when I say that all these deaths are not my fault?

Kyle:

Of course, I will, I know you couldn’t have possibly have done them. I have been having a series of dreams about you. They say I have to help you.

Grun:

Anna had the same sort of dreams, but she betrayed me.

Kyle:

I won’t. I have nothing to gain by it, and you know I want to be initiated in the dream state.

Grun:

You must promise me that you will help me. You were always stronger than me, but I have to warn you, that now, I have the protection of The Dragon. If you even try to hit me, you will be hurt. Is that understood?

Kyle: (looking serious)

Why all the seriousness?

Grun:

This is the most serious thing that I have ever been involved in and you must realize it. Twenty-eight people have been killed so far. More will surely follow. I want you to help me steal an Egyptian relic from the British Library.

Kyle:

I didn’t know I would be asked to do anything illegal.

Grun:

If we don’t acquire the relic, then many more people will die.

Kyle:

Why don’t you go to the authorities and get them to help, I’m sure they will understand.

 Grun;

I said that to my dad and he said no. No one must know about the power of the relic key. It doesn’t just have the power to stop The Dragon: if they don’t use it properly, it could cause untold damage. The Dragon is already growing in power. We don’t have a lot of time, will you help me?

Kyle:

Of course, now I know the significance of it all. What do you want me to do?

Grun;

I want you to use your expertise on the pc, find out where they are taking the relic. Hack into the library files, I know you can do it.

Kyle:

I’ll try but with all this publicity, I don’t know how long I will last before they catch me.

Grun:

I want you to hold my hand in a certain way for a few seconds in a moment, it will give you protection. I will chant some words and you will repeat them, is that understood?

Kyle:

Yes, I feel giddy.

Grun:

That is the power in me starting to affect you. Now, hold my hand with the thumbs touching and repeat after me.
