Rules Of Silence


EXT. Wharf
Grey stands on the wharf facing the water. Expression sad. Camera view shows of her right shoulder and Erika coming up behind her.
ERIKA
Grey?
Grey doesn’t move for a moment, with her back turned still she says.

GREY
I don’t want to talk.

ERIKA
WHat happened that day?

GREY Laughing humorlessly.
That day? Is that what we’re calling it now?
You wouldn’t understand. You weren’t there. I should have never told her how to play that stupid game.

ERIKA
Come on, Grey. We were both her friends, we both loved her and miss her. But don’t you think your being a bit hard on yourself?

GREY crying, facing Erika
You weren’t there. You would never understand.

ERIKA
I would if you would tell me.

GREY
I feel like somethings not right. Ever since she died-


ERIKA
It’s only been two days.

GREY
I know. But since then, I feel like somethings not the way it should be. It feels like a constricting in my heart.

ERIKA
That’s grief. I’ve got it to.

GREY
No, it’s different. I mean yesterday I went for a walk to town and I ended up at the bunker, her bunker.

ERIKA
That’s odd. But maybe you just need to go back. I know I do. Perhaps if we just go visit her, everything could be alright again.

GREY
You think? You think I need to going back to the scene of the crime is going to make me feel better?

ERIKA
Yes, I do, it’s closure.

GREY
Closure. That’s all I need.

ERIKA walking over to the rail
Well, it’s either going there or going to see a therapist.

GREY
Wait, a shrink? My parents are sending me to a shrink? I don’t need a shrink!

ERIKA
They seem to think you do, and so do I. You need to get her and your guilt out of your system. Or you’ll turn into one of those people who hates the world and everyone in it because they’re afraid someone else will die on them.

pause

GREY
Tomorrow.
ERIKA
Huh? What was that? Could you repeat?

GREY
Tomorrow, I said. We’ll go tomorrow.

ERIKA
Glad to hear it.


EXT. Fort Warden Bunker

Grey stands on very top of the bunker, the highest point, looking down close to the egde whatever distance cast is comfortable with). Expression is blank, no emotion. Flash back: Beth and Grey decide on a game.
Flashback:
GREY
What should we play?

BETH
How about Silence?

GREY
How do you play that?

BETH
You know how to play hide and seek tag right?

GREY
Yeah.

BETH
Well, it’s just like that, only you play it in the darkest bunker and everyone is completely 100% silent. And you can’t have flashlights for anything.

GREY
Okay.

BETH
Okay. Not it!!

GREY
Hey that’s not fair!

BETH
Yes it is.

GREY
Fine. 1. 2. 3. 4...

(flash)

Inside the bunker. Grey searches. Beth hides in little tunnel. Grey sees Beth
GREY
Found you!!

Beth runs out of the tunnel and up the stairs. Grey follows. Running, Beth nears the edge of the bunker, looks behind to see if Grey follows, she does, Beth screams and falls off the bunker.
(Flash)

Beth lying on the ground below where she fell. Dead.
(End of Flashback)


Grey stands on top of bunker, looking blankly down below. Erika comes running out from down below.
ERIKA
Grey!!
Grey!!

Erika runs out of lowest level on the bunker and looks up at Grey.

ERIKA
I want to show you something. Come down here.

Grey climbs down the stairs and Erika pulls her into the bunker.

ERIKA
Look, it’s us. Remember when we wrote our names here?

Ghost of Beth runs by camera fast. Grey’s eyes go wide, looking scared, turns to Erika, who’s reading names on the walls.
GREY
Did you see that?

ERIKA
See what?

GREY
I think it went down here.

Camera looks down ladder. Sees Ghost of Beth running by down below.
GREY
Wow, did you see that?

ERIKA
Uh... Grey... I didn’t see anything.

GREY
Hello? Who’s down there?

GHOST OF BETH
Grey...
Silence....

GREY
Beth...?
Erika did you hear that?

ERIKA
What? Grey your scaring me.

GREYlooks down ladder for a little while longer
smiles Yea, never mind. Let’s go down into tunnel.

ERIKA
Okay.

EXT. In Bunker.
Girls walk through the bunker.
ERIKA
Grey, lets tell each other secrets.

GREY
Okay. What kind of secrets?

ERIKA
Just something you’ve never told anyone before. (voice echos)

Flash back sequence:
EXT. Bunker tunnel.
Beth and Grey walk through.
BETH
It sure smell awful down here.

GREY
Yea, it smell like someone died in here!

Girls come across a body of Steve in the corner, scream and run away.
End of Flash back.
ERIKA
Okay, you go first.

GREY
Alright. Once in a while, I see things. Grey turns away from Erika.

ERIKA
What kind of things?

GREY
Terrible things. Dreadful things. The things in which my nightmares are made from.

ERIKA
Grey...

GREY
She whispers to me, watches me, calls for me.

ERIKA
What does she say?

GREY
Grey. Grey come back to me. Come back finish the..... silence

ERIKA
What does that mean?

GREY
She’s looking for me.

ERIKA
Who?

GREY
Beth.

ERIKA
Beth. You mean the our friend Beth, the Beth that died here two days ago?

GREY
Yea.

ERIKA
Oh. Will you tell me what happened?

GREY pause
We were playing Silence.

ERIKA
What’s Silence?

GREY
The rules of silence are simple.
It’s kind of like hide and seek tag.
Rule #1: You play in the bunkers. Dark bunkers.
Rule #2: Everything is completely 100% silent. No talking. No running. Not until your found at least.
Rule #3: No flashlights. Or lights of any kind.

ERIKA
Sounds kind of dangerous.

GREY
It is. It really is.

ERIKA
How’d she die, Grey?

GREY
She was running. Running real fast. She wasn’t watching where she was going and she fell. and hit her head on the pavement.

Singing is echoed through the bunker (Black Swan). Erika and Grey look at each other, frightened.
ERIKA
What’s that?

GREY
Beth. It’s her favorite song.
Come on.

ERIKA
Where are we going?

GREY
Just come on! Grey and Erika runs into the tunnel. Slows just before Beth’s Silence hiding spot.

GREY
Beth? Beth come out and talk to us. Singing stops.
Beth, why are you still here?

BETH
You left me!!!

GREY
Beth...

BETH
Both of you. You left me here all by myself, you know how much I hate dark places.
You left me here to play with Steve!!

GREY
Who’s Steve!!?

BETH
He’s not important. And apparently neither am I!!

Next tunnel over, Steve comes out.
STEVE
Did someone call my name? Sees Grey and Erika, and rolls his eyes. Living beings!! This is a major suck-factor! Runs away

GREY
Was that? Was that who I think it was?

BETH
Don’t ask. He’s a moron!!

GREY
But, he’s the one we found that day right, in the tunnel?
Flash
shows clip of Beth and Grey finding Steves body.
Flash

BETH (nods)
That’s the one. And what’s better, he was an actual mediator!! You know the guys that can talk to the dead and stuff. And one of his ghosts got mad and killed him, accidently.

GREY
Listen, Beth, I’m sorry I couldn’t save you.

BETH
You bet, you are.

GREY
Yes, I am. You don’t know how guilty I’ve been feeling. I feel like this is all my fault.

BETH walks out of tunnel and stands in front of them
SHUT UP!!
Grey stares at her guiltily.
Your serious. Aren’t you?

GREY
Yes.

BETH
It’s not your fault, Grey. I should have watched where I was going.

GREY
Yes, you should have. But I should have never taught you how to play that game.

BETH
I know, each action has a consequence. DO’nt give yourself to much credit, Grey, it was mostly my fault.

GREY
What are you still doing here anyway?

BETH
I don’t know exactly, but I can’t seem to move on. See watch this.
Tries to mount the stairs but she can’t. Tries again and again until she is able to speed up half the stair case, looks back down at Grey and Erika in surprise.
Maybe I just needed to talk to you. Maybe you needed to talk to me. Maybe we needed closure.
GREY
Closure. There’s that word again.

BETH
laughs.
Silly, Grey. Erika can you see me? You haven’t said a word?


ERIKA
Yes I can. You two had somethings to work out. I thought I’d keep silent.

BETH
I’m glad you both came.

ERIKA
So am I. I had to tell Grey her parents were going to force her to see a therapist if she didn’t come with me.

GREY
You mean you tricked me? I should have known. shakes her head. Good work.

BETH
So we all guilt free now?

GREY(nods)

ERIKA
Let’s hope so.

BETH
Good. I’ll miss you guys.

ERIKA
We’ll miss you to.

GREY
Have a good life.

BETH
Shouldn’t I be saying that to you?

GREY
Yea. What I meant was, be good.

BETH smiles and disappears.

Leave the bunker, walking down the main path, stop half way and look back at the bunkers.

ERIKA
That was interesting.

GREY
Sure was. Want to come back next Saturday?

ERIKA
Of course!

GREY
Great.

Boy and Girl walk down the path passing them talking.

BOY
Want to play Silence?

GIRL
Of course! I love that game!

BOY
Not it!

GIRL
That’s so not fair!!
Kids run towards the bunker. Erika and Grey look at each other.

GREY
I did not just hear that....
I did not just hear that...
Erika and Grey walk down the path and out of sight.
