EPISODE V – FLASHBACK
LONG ISLAND, NY
JULY 5TH 2013, SOMETIME AFTER MIDNIGHT
A black Plymouth tears down the road, swaying in and out of its lane, and the oncoming traffic.
“Timothy man, you’re a maniac!” yells one of the four guys, this one in the backseat.
Timothy drives the car up onto his parents lawn, destroying it… Gets out of the vehicle, drunkly setting the alarm.
He starts to go through his keys as he trips over a lawn gnome, and almost falls.
When he reaches the front door, he notices it’s slightly open.
His heart stops.
He slowly opens the door…
“Elise?” he calls.
But there is no sound.
After making his way through the house, he finally reaches his sister’s bedroom… He’d saved it for last out of fear.
“Elise? This isn’t funny.”
He staggers towards the door, and slowly swings it open…
What he sees next he can not believe…
He falls to his knees, tears flooding from his eyes…
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK
TIMOTHY COLLIN’S HIGHRISE APARTMENT
Timothy wakes up screaming…
He’s sweating profusely, as he quickly grabs his chest, and peers towards the window looking over the city.
Rain splashes hardly against the window, with lightning, and thunder making its’ presence known…
Timothy steps into his kitchen, wearing a long white satin robe, and black satin pants.
“The nightmares never end…”
He grabs a seltzer water, and sits at his bar stool counter.
“Hello Julian…” a voice comes from behind him.
“The mercenaries… I am a fool.”
