For my beta readers.
Trust me, there will be a lot of grammar mistakes. (I literally just spelled grammar wrong...)
Episode 1 (DONE):
-Room with tons of straw beds-
Eric (reading): Congratulations, you have been sent the flash drive. Please head to the admissions office if you survive.
Eric: Well, that's a bit morbid.
(Takes out smaller parcel in envelope)
Eric: I can do this, I need to do this.
(Rips open package and plugs flash drive into herself. Falls to the ground)
-Darkness, then come back to same scene-
(Eric is on floor. She tries to sit but falls back down. Slowly she raises her arm with flash drive plugged in.)
-Darkness, then come to an office. Eric is standing in front of a desk. Behind the desk is a blonde haired woman-
Admissions Director: I have been working here for over twenty years, and I have never seen someone this young accepted.
Eric: Can I keep the flash drive?”
Admissions Director (shocked): Why would you want that thing? It almost killed you, sweetheart”
Eric: I want it as a memento of what I went through to get here, so I never give up my education and never make trouble for fear of losing what I almost gave up my life for.
Admissions Director: I’ll see what I can do. (Picks up phone)
Hello sir... this phone is only if someone asks about keeping their flash drive…. the person? she is very young, but seems pretty smart… I see sir…. I’ll tell her…. no, no, not a problem… alright, sir
“You may keep it for two days. Mr. Firez will meet you after those two days at his office. It’s the building right of the main school building. A guard will escort you there, and you will discuss keeping the drive.
-As Eric leaves Dylan walks in with his flash drive-
Dylan: I have my flash drive
Admissions Director: My, another young... (sound and scene fades out)
-Eric is traveling on some sort of moving sidewalk. There is noise and incessant chatter all around her. She trips as she steps off-
-She is stopped at the gates by a guard (Dylan)-
Dylan: Name, flash drive, and scar
Eric: (holding out her arm and flash drive) Eric Gates
Dylan: He's expecting you. It's not good to keep him waiting.
-Dylan leads Eric through numerous hallways and leaves her at closed door. She knocks-
Mr. Firez: Enter
-She sits in front of the desk. Mr. Firez is on the other side-
Mr. Firez: Hello, I’m Mr Firez, the head of MIT.”
Eric: I’m Eric.
Mr. Firez: May I see your flash drive?
-She holds the flash drive just out of his reach-
Mr. Firez: Do you know what these colours represent?
-Eric shakes her head_
Mr. Firez: The name of this flash drive is the widower because the colours are the same as the ones on a black widow. Black widows were all black with a red hourglass indicating that your time was running out. Before the black widow went extinct, it was the deadliest spider in the world.
Eric: That is the deadliest virus you have made and the black widow was the deadliest spider.
Mr. Firez: You are correct. I never planned on anyone keeping the widower since I was certain it would kill whoever plugged it into themselves, but if you can do what no other has done, I will give it to you. I have a challenge that I have given to all who wanted to keep their flash drives. If you can fix my tongue then you can keep it.
-He sticks out his tongue and it is a snakes tongue-
Mr. Firez: I use to make the offer that if you gave me a snake’s tongue, I would let you keep the flash drive, but one person figured out how to, but then they wouldn’t fix it. So now I make this offer.
Eric: I’ll try
-She plugs the flash drive into herself. She then blacks out. (Fade out)-
-View is from Eric's eyes. She is on the floor with a concerned Mr. Firez knelling next to her.-
Mr. Firez: I said fix my tongue, not almost kill yourself.”
-Eric plugs the flash drive into him.-
Eric: (whispers weakly) Stick out your tongue.
Mr. Firez: What?
Eric: (shouts) Your tongue!
-Eric collapses and her eyes close to darkness once more-
