ACT ONE
SCENE ONE

EXT. BUSH. MORNING
We see a young GIRL running aimlessly around the bush. She is clad only in a small dirty cloth tied across her chest and barely reaching her knees. After several unsuccessful escape attempts, she creeps wearily and sits on a fallen tree branch with her back against the tree.
A few minutes later, we hear THUDDING footsteps. The young girl freezes and immediately lays on the bumpy ground side by side a broken branch.
Two fierce looking MEN come into focus, looking from side to side.

1ST MAN
(In rage)
I swear Iya will skin us alive if we don’t find her.

2ND MAN
There is no cause for alarm; no novice
will ever be able to escape from this bush.
We don’t have any time to waste; you go left
while I go right…

The two men dash off immediately in two different directions. A few minutes later, the young girl rises up slowly with both arms clasping and trembling at the same time. Peering round about her with fright, she slouches back in fear to her hiding place.

Thirty minutes later, both men return unsuccessful.

1ST MAN
We are in for Iya’s wrath today.
What do we tell her?

2ND MAN
Don’t worry, I’ll handle the situation.
Let’s go.

Both men leave the spotlight. A few minutes later the girl springs to her feet in triumph, and without detecting the thorn interlocking at the end of the branch, the spike digs into her bare feet.
Meanwhile, the two men on their way out of the bush heard the girl’s incessant screaming.

2ND MAN
That should be our victim.

1ST MAN
Don’t be fooled; that could be a set-up.

2ND MAN
Cowards die several times before their
actual death.
(Dragging his accomplice along)
She could be the one; let’s go!

The two men race towards the direction of the cry only to find to their pleasure their prey wriggling in pains. One of them hoisted her on his shoulder amidst the blood dripping from her foot while the other follows behind.
