Intro

NARRATOR (JACK) : My name is Jack Mayfair and I come from a long line of Founders of a quiet and pretty little town in West Virginia called Gallows Hill, it has a dark history...but haven't we all? On the surface it sure looks like a beautiful place, but as my Mother always told me - You should never judge a book by it's cover.


Somewhere Just Outside Gallows Hill

AUSTIN X Olivia x2 DILLON X NICK X
(Characters: Austin, Olivia, Dillon, Nick)


(IT IS DARK AND A WOMAN IS MESSY AND DIRTY AND SHE IS WEARING TATTERED AND WORN CLOTHING AND HAS NO SHOES ON. SHE LOOKS FRANTIC AND PANICKY AS SHE IS AT A PHONE BOX MAKING A CALL)

GIRL: I don't know, somewhere near Gallows Hill!

911 OPERATOR: We can trace the call, one moment.

GIRL: Please hurry!

(A MAN APPROACHES)

(WITH A TEXAS ACCENT)

MAN: There you are, Sweetness!

(THE GIRL SCREAMS)

MAN: You made me chase you through that damn forest, I got mud all over my pretty new boots.

(THE MAN RUSHES FORWARD WITH SUPER-SPEED)

(HE GRABS HER APRUPTLY BY THE THROAT AND PUSHES HER UP THE SIDE OF THE BOOTH)

(SHE STRUGGLED AND SQUEALED)

(HE LOOKS AT HER DIRECTLY IN THE EYES AND HIS PUPILS SHRINK)

MAN: Stop screaming!

(THE GIRL STOPS SCREAMING)

GIRL: Please don't kill me!

MAN: I promise, it'll only hurt for a moment.

(MAN BITES HIS WRIST AND FEEDS THE GIRL HIS BLOOD)

Sacred Grounds

(TITLE SCREEN GALLOWS HILL)
JACK X JEANNIE X ANGEL X JESSIE X
(Characters: Jack, Jeannie, Angel, Jessie)

JACK (NARRATING) : As soon as I saw those familiar hills, it hit me like a kick in the stomach, the blunt reality of losing my Mother, my Father and my Sister and it weighed heavy on my heart. Momentarily I had a stab of regret and part of me wanted to turn around and escape from having to face the tattered remnants of my old life but I needed to feel the warmth of my girlfriends embrace, I needed to feel something besides the miasma of dark emotions that hung over me. I needed my Angel.


(CUTS TO A PICTURESQUE TOWN LUSH WITH FLOWERS AND TREES)

(THE ROAR OF A LOUD MOTORCYCLE INTERRUPTS THE SILENCE AND NON-ACTIVITY)

(THE MOTORCYCLE STOPS OUTSIDE THE COFFEE SHOP AND A LEATHER CLAD MAN STEPS DOWN FROM HIS BIKE AND TAKES OFF HIS HELMET AND WAVES HIS FULL HEAD OF DARK HAIR AND THEN STRETCHES HIS ARMS INTO THE AIR)

JACK: Ah! It's good to be back.

(AN OLDER BUT STILL ATTRACTIVE OLDER WOMAN COMES OUT OF THE COFFEE SHOP AND RUSHES OVER TO HIM)

JEANNIE: Jack!

(SHE KISSES HIS FOREHEAD AND HUGS HIM AFFECTIONATELY)

JEANNIE: I have missed you so much, you haven't been answering my calls, I was so worried.

JACK: I love you too Grandma.

(JACK SHONE A CHEEKY GRIN AT JEANNIE)

(JEANNIE LOOKS AT HIM IN AN ACCEPTING BUT DISAPPROVING MANNER)

JEANNIE: Well the main thing is that you are here now I suppose, you know Angel has been beside herself.

JACK: Really? I am going to get punished by her, do you reckon?

JEANNIE: Well... she was quite upset, she had convinced herself that you had run off with another woman.

JACK: Nonsense, I love her, she knows that, she knows that I would never do anything like that.

JEANNIE: I did try telling her that dearie, but it is hard to reason with a girl whose boyfriend up and left for three weeks with nothing to tell her why but a note left on a table telling her not to worry. You should have known that she would have worried and that I would have worried.

(JACK LOWERED HIS HEAD)

JACK: Sorry.

JEANNIE: It's not really me you should be apologizing to, that poor girl has been crying almost non-stop for three weeks.

JACK: I know, I just needed space, you know? To figure my stuff out, once I got my mind focused I came back home, I cried too you know?

(JEANNIE PLACED HER HAND AFFECTIONATELY ON HIS SHOULDER)

JEANNIE: I know son, just make up with her, she the one good thing you have left.

JACK: and you.

(HE SHONE ANOTHER CHEEKY GRIN)

(JEANNIE SMILED BACK TOUCHED BY THE AFFIRMATION)

JEANNIE: You know how to charm and old woman, don't you? Go on, get in there and sort out your relationship!

(JEANNIE SMILED AS SHE USHERED HIM INSIDE SACRED GROUNDS)

(JACK TENTATIVELY WALKS THROUGH THE DOOR)

(THE DOOR CHIMES)

(JEANNIE WALKED BACK BEHIND THE COUNTER)

JEANNIE: There is someone over there who wants to speak to you, dear.

ANGEL: Really, who?

(ANGEL LOOKS UP FROM BEHIND THE COUNTER)

ANGEL: Jack!!

(SHE RUNS FROM BEHIND THE COUNTER AND KISSES HIM AND HUGS HIM TIGHTLY)

ANGEL: Where have you been!? I missed you!

(SHE SLAPS HIS FACE HARD)

JACK: Well, I guess I deserved that.

ANGEL: You had me and Jeannie worried sick. I haven't been sleeping, I have been going out of my damn mind with worry. I didn't know whether you were with some other woman or even dead in a ditch somewhere.

(ANGEL STARTED CRYING)

(JEANNIE LOOKED OVER)

JACK: I know I'm sorry...I just had to...

ANGEL: I know why you did it...but it didn't make it any easier.

JACK: I really did miss you Angel, not a moment went by that I didn't have this Angel shaped hole in my heart.

ANGEL: Really!?

(SHE WIPED AWAY THE TEARS)

JACK: Of course.

(SHE EMBRACED HIM AND PUSHED HER FACE DEEP INTO HIS CHEST)

(JACK SMILED AND WINKED AT HIS GRANDMOTHER)

(JEANNIE ROLLED HER EYES)

JEANNIE: Angel, I'll cover for you, you two need to catch up.

ANGEL: You sure?

(JEANNIE NODDED)

ANGEL: Thank you, Jeannie, you're a star.

JEANNIE: I try.

(ANGEL RUSHES INTO THE BACK ROOM SO SHE CAN GET CHANGED AND GRAB HER THINGS FROM HER LOCKER)

(JEANNIE LOOKS STERNLY AT HER GRANDSON)

(A WAITRESS STOPS WIPING DOWN TABLES AND APPROACHES JACK)

JESSICA: It's good to see you Jack.

(SHE FLITACIOUSLY FLUTTERS HER EYELASHES)

JACK: You too Jess, how you been?

JESSICA: Good, all the better for seeing you.

(JACK CHUCKLES AMUSED BY THIS)

(JEANNIE APPROACHED AND GAVE JESSICA THE EVIL EYE)

JEANNIE: You missed a table.

(JESSICA ROLLS HER EYES)

JESSICA: Yes, Ma'am.

(JESSICA GETS BACK TO WIPING TABLES)

JEANNIE: You got out of that one easy enough, didn't you?

JACK: I try.

JEANNIE: You always were a smooth talker, you got that from your Grandfather.

JACK: I guess.

JEANNIE: You have some making up to do, don't let your old Grandmother down, that girl is important to me.

JACK: I won't I promise, she is everything to me, I'm not going to lose her.

JEANNIE: Glad to hear it.

(ANGEL COMES OUT FROM THE BACK ROOM WITH HER NORMAL CLOTHES ON AND HER HAIR LET DOWN)

ANGEL: Let's get going. We have some... making up to do!

(ANGEL BITES HER LIP AND GIVES HIM AN INTENSE SEXUAL LOOK)

JACK: Oh....OH!...Okay....bye Gran.

(HE GIDDILY SMILED AND WAVED AT JEANNIE)

JEANNIE: Bye dearies... try not to break the bed!

(JEANNIE LOOKS AT JESSICA AND SHOT HER A GLORIFIED SMIRK)

(JACK AND ANGEL BOTH LAUGH)

(JESSICA SHOOTS THEM A DIRTY LOOK)

(THEY LEAVE AND GET ON JACK'S MOTORCYCLE AND DRIVE OFF)


Sheriff's Office

TRACEY X DILLON X
(Characters: Tracey, Dillon)
(TRACEY THE MAYOR WALKS IN TO THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE AND SHUTS THE DOOR)

TRACEY: So what's the story Dillon? Are you sure it was a Vampire?

DILLON: I saw it with my own eyes, Trace. There one minute then gone the next in a flash.

TRACEY: I see...who was she?..The girl, do we know who she was?

DILLON: Olivia Pleasant, 21. She lived on a farm just out of town.

TRACEY: Have you notified her parents?

DILLON: I can't.

TRACEY: Why's that?

(DILLON HANDS TRACEY A FOLDER CONTAINING THE GORY PICTURES OF OLIVIA'S MUTILATED FAMILY)

TRACEY: JESUS!!

(TRACEY WALKS TO THE WINDOW AND FEELS FAINT)

(SHE OPENS THE WINDOW AND TRIES TO CATCH HER BREATH)

DILLON: You okay?

TRACEY: In all my years, I have....never seen anything quite that bad.

DILLON: We have a ripper on our hands, this is no ordinary Vampire, Trace.

TRACEY: I'll call a Council meeting ASAP, we cannot have a Vampire running around Gallows Hill, especially one as violent as that.

DILLON: Agreed, there hasn't been a Vampire in this town for almost 20 years now, you remember what it was like in the 90's, it must be found and destroyed.

TRACEY: I'll contact the Families immediately, If left unchecked it will turn this town into a bloodbath. Something must be done and we must act quickly. Do you think we need to bring in a hunter?

DILLON: I think we can handle one Vampire if we have all the necessary weapons, don't you think?

TRACEY: What if it has made more? We don't know how long it has been watching us. Do you think it was random, or is it targetting the council?

DILLON: I have no idea.

TRACEY: I don't like this feeling I have, that we are doing exactly what it wants, like we are playing into it's hands and falling into a trap.

DILLON: I trust your intuition, it has saved me quite a few times.

(TRACEY SMIRKED)

TRACEY: A lifetime ago now it seems.

DILLON: Good times.

TRACEY: Yes...yes they were.

(DILLON LOOKED INTENTLY INTO HER EYES)

(TRACEY SMILED AND THEN COUGHED, HER EYES GLAZED UP)

DILLON: Something wrong?

TRACEY: No, not at all.

DILLON: Bring in the hunter then, just in case.

TRACEY: I'll call him. He owes me one, so I am sure he would oblige.

DILLON: That's good to know.

(TRACEY LOOKS DOWN AT THE PICTURES IN THE FOLDER ON THE DESK)

TRACEY: Are they calling it an animal attack?

DILLON: Already took care of it, usual procedure, the Medical Board has already signed her death certificate. We have told the press that whilst running away from the man that killed her family, she was preyed upon by a Mountain Lion.

TRACEY: Well at least that is something, a very small something, that poor girl.

DILLON: Indeed.

TRACEY: Have your family in by sundown, visit the arsenal, collect weapons enough for five, stakes, wooden bullets, crossbows, harvest the Vervain and bring it all to the Town Hall at 7, don't forget to ingest some of it and whatever you do, carry a stake.

DILLON: Yes, Ma'am.

TRACEY: If there's Vampires in town we need to get Vervain into the populace as soon as possible. Protect your family Dillon.

DILLON: I always do.

TRACEY: Good to know.

(TRACEY SMILED AND WALKED OUT)

(SHE COUGHES AS SHE STRUGGLES TO FOCUS)

OLIVIA: Hmm, I think so but I am so cold.

NURSE: You will be just wrapped in that sheet, let me go get you a gown, can you keep watch on this trolley for me? I'll only be two secs.

OLIVIA: Sure.

(THE NURSE SMILED)

NURSE: Okay.

(OLIVIA LOOKS DOWN AT THE BLOODBAGS AND REALISES THAT IT IS THE BLOOD THAT SMELLS SO GOOD)

(HER BODY IS WILLING HER TO FEED)

(OLIVIA GRABS ONE OF THE BLOOD BAGS AND HIDES IT UNDER HER SHEET)

(THE NURSE RETURNS WITH A GOWN AND HANDS IT TO OLIVIA)

NURSE: There you are.

OLIVIA: Thank you so much.

NURSE: No problem, take care now.

(THE NURSE WHEELED THE TROLLEY AWAY)

(OLIVIA FINDS AN EMPTY ROOM AND SHUTS THE DOOR BEHIND HER)

(SHE SLIDES DOWN A WALL AND ONTO THE FLOOR)

(SHE SNAPS OPEN THE TOP OF THE BLOODBAG AND SMELLS IT)

(SHE SUCKS ON THE PIPE AND THE BLOOD ENTERS HER MOUTH AND AS SOON AS SHE GOT A TASTE FOR IT SHE DRANK HEAVILY OF IT.)

(HER EYES BECOME RED AND VEINY)

(SHE SCREAMS LOUDLY AS FANGS ARE PAINFULLY FORMED IN HER GUMS)

(OLIVIA STANDS WITH HER BACK TURNED TO THE NURSE)

OLIVIA: No, I am really not.

NURSE: Do you need help?

(THE NURSE SEES THE BLOODBAG AND ITS CONTENTS SPILLING OUT ONTO THE FLOOR)

NURSE: What the?

OLIVIA: There is a way you can be of help to me.

(OLIVIA EYES BECOME RED AND VEINY)

(OLIVIA QUICKLY TURNS AND GRABS THE NURSE FORCING UP AGAINST THE WALL WITH HER NEW FOUND STRENGTH)

(OLIVIA LOOKS AT HER RIGHT IN THE EYE AND COMPELS HER)

OLIVIA: Do not move and do not scream!

NURSE: I will not move and I will not scream.

OLIVIA: I am sorry but I am just so very hungry.

(OLIVIA'S FANGS PROTRUDE)

(SHE BITES THE NURSE AND HER FACE BECOMES COVERED IN BLOOD AS SHE VIOLENTLY FEEDS FROM HER)

(FADE TO BLACK)

(OLIVIA IS CRYING)

(OLIVIA WIPES THE BLOOD FURIOUSLY FROM HER FACE)

(THE NURSE; TAMMY IS HOLDING HER NECK)

OLIVIA: Oh God, what did I do!?

TAMMY: You bit me.

OLIVIA: I am so so sorry.

(THE NURSE SHOWS OLIVIA HER WOUND AND HOLD OUT HER BLOODY HANDS)

TAMMY: What are you!?

OLIVIA: I don't know, I really don't.

TAMMY: Are you going to kill me?

OLIVIA: No, but I want to.

TAMMY: Why?

OLIVIA: Every cell in my body is willing me to sink my teeth into your flesh and drink deep, but my heart is fighting my instincts. I refuse to become a monster.

TAMMY: But you are a monster.

OLIVIA: I am?

TAMMY: Yes.

OLIVIA: Are you scared?

TAMMY: Yes.

OLIVIA: Then why don't you flee?

TAMMY: ...because you told me not to move.

(OLIVIA REALIZES SHE HAS THE POWER TO MANIPULATE MINDS, THE LOOK OF REALISATION IS WRITTEN ON HER FACE)

(OLIVIA COMPELS TAMMY)

(OLIVIA'S PUPILS SHRINK)

OLIVIA: What's your name?

TAMMY: Tammy, Tammy Graves.

OLIVIA: Okay, Tammy you are going to clean yourself up, cover your wound and you will not remember what happened here, all you will remember is you slipped and cut your neck, okay?

TAMMY: I will not remember.

OLIVIA: Good.

(OLIVIA FLEES IN VAMP SPEED)



Founder's Council

DILLON X TRACEY X JACKSON X JEANNIE X Jasmine coven CALEB X
(Characters: Dillon, Tracey, Jackson, Jeannie, Jasmine, Caleb)

(DILLON WALKS INTO GALLOWS HILL TOWN HALL AND DOWN A LONG CORRIDOR)

(HE IS CARRYING A BAG FULL OF WEAPONS AND VERVAIN)

(IT IS EXTREMELY HEAVY AND HE STRUGGLES TO CARRY IT)

(HE OPENS A DOOR AND GOES DOWN A FLIGHT OF STEPS INTO THE BASEMENT)

(HE COMES UPTO A DOOR WITH A LOCK THAT COULD ONLY BE OPENED WITH A CODE AND A THUMBPRINT)

(HE ENTERS THE CODE AND SCANS HIS THUMB, THE DOOR OPENS)

(HE STEPS INTO A ROOM THAT WAS WELL LIT, IT HAD A TABLE IN THE CENTRE AND AROUND IT WAS 4 PEOPLE; THE OTHER HEADS OF THE FOUNDING FAMILIES)

(DILLON SITS DOWN)

TRACEY: Dillon! I am glad you could make it, even if you are half an hour late!

DILLON: ...(HE REMAINS SILENT, A DISGUSTED LOOK UPON HIS FACE, HE WASN'T GOING TO APOLOGIZE)

TRACEY: I presume you brought the weapons.

DILLON: I did.

(DILLON DUMPS THE BAG ON THE TABLE WITH A HEAVY THUD)

(TRACEY SHOOTS HIM A DIRTY LOOK)

(DILLON CROSSES HIS ARMS)

DILLON: I know tensions are high but is there any need for the dirty looks and the bad attitude.

TRACEY: No, I suppose not, I'm sorry Dill. I am on edge.

(TRACEY RUBBED HER FOREHEAD)

DILLON: As are we all, and nervous I should imagine.

(THE FOUNDERS ALL NODDED IN AGREEMENT)

DILLON: ...but it's fine, don't worry about it. I got the weapons and the Vervain, just as you asked. I was late because I was getting Vervain into my family. It took a while.

TRACEY: I'm sorry, it's fine.

JACKSON: So can we proceed now, now that we are done with the drama.

(DILLON SHOT HIM A DIRTY LOOK)

(JACKSON SMIRKED BACK IN A COCKY FASHION)

DILLON: Some of us actually have a family to protect, something (DILLON LOOKS HIM UP AND DOWN) a bachelor wouldn't know anything about.

JACKSON: Hey, I get my fair share of ladies.

(JACKSON SMIRKED)

DILLON: When are you going to grow up?

JACKSON: Same time you get of your high horse, I suspect.

(DILLON GRITS HIS TEETH)

DILLON: You always were a dick. (UNDER HIS BREATH)

JACKSON: Did you say something?

(DILLON JUST BLANKLY LOOKED AT HIM)

JEANNIE: You are one to talk about drama, Jackson. Now shut up and let's get back to the matter at hand shall we?

JACKSON: Yes, sorry Ma'am.

JASMINE: How can we be certain that there is only the one?

TRACEY: We can't.

JEANNIE: So how are we to protect the town and our families?

TRACEY: This is why I brought him.

(CALEB STEPS OUT FROM THE BACKROOM)

(TRACEY POINTS AT CALEB)

TRACEY: This is Caleb, he is a Vampire Hunter, a very skilled one at that.

(JACKSON SHOOTS HIM A DIRTY LOOK AS HE TAKES AN INSTANT DISLIKE TO HIM)

DILLON: How can one Human, take on a Vampire? No offence.

(CALEB RAISES HIS EYEBROWS AND GRINS)

CALEB: You have no idea how many times I have been asked that question.

(EVERYONE PAUSES FOR AN ANSWER)

CALEB: Like this.

(CALEB PICKED UP A CROWBAR FROM THE BAG AND BENDS IT EFFORTLESSLY)

(EVERYONE GASPS)

(CALEB THEN DASHES AROUND THE ROOM WITH SUPERSPEED)

(DILLON JUMPS FROM HIS SEAT)

(JEANNIE AND JASMINE SCREAM)

(JACKSON IS WIDE-EYED AND HORRIFIED)

DILLON: WHAT THE F...!?

(DILLON HASTILY GRABS A STAKE)

JACKSON: Are you a....v...v.. (HE STAMMERS)

CALEB: I know what you are thinking but no I am not a Vampire, I have similar powers but I am not undead, I am very much alive. The supernatural world isn't just about Vampires you know, there are countless things that go bump in the night. Things that you could not even imagine.

(JACKSON CRINGES)

(CALEB SMILES)

JASMINE: Prove it, eat the Vervain.

(CALEB GRABS A HANDFUL OF VERVAIN AND EATS A FLOWER HEAD WITH NO ILL EFFECTS)

CALEB: Satisfied, see, not a Vampire.

DILLON: If you are not a Vampire then how did you just do that, what are you?

(EVERYONES EYES LOCKED ON CALEB)

(CALEB SIGHS)

CALEB: I am... a superhuman. Don't ask me what that means because I really don't know. I can just do things. I am faster and stronger than Vampires and hunting and killing them is what I do, it is what I am, ever since I killed my first one, I knew that was what I was born to do, it's like a compulsion, a primal instinct.

DILLON: Oh...

JASMINE: So do you have a lot of experience then?

CALEB: (HE RAISES HIS EYEBROWS AND CHUCKLES)

(JASMINE ROLLS HER EYES)

JASMINE: Men! Please, I am old enough to be your Mother, I meant killing Vampires.

CALEB: Oh, yeah. I have been killing Vampires, almost all my life, since I was ten years old.

JEANNIE: Ten years old!?

CALEB: Yeah.

JEANNIE: That must have been tough.

JACKSON: O...kay.

DILLON: How many Vampires have you killed?

CALEB: Enough, more than I can count put it that way. I am not here for an interrogation nor I am here for a trip down memory lane, I am here to cleanse your pretty little town of Vampires. Are you questioning my adequacy?

DILLON: No, not all, you have....more than proved yourself. In fact I think Jackson needs to change his underwear.

(DILLON LOOKS AT JACKSON AND GRINS)

(CALEB LAUGHS)

JACKSON: Ha, ha, ha, funny! (SARCASTIC)

CALEB: I thought it was.

JEANNIE: (ROLLS HER EYES) Men!

TRACEY: So where do we begin?

(CALEB BEGAN TO WALK SLOWLY AROUND THE TABLE)

CALEB: You, don't do anything. I am to set a few traps, the less said about it the better, I don't let morality or conscience get in the way of what needs to be done, all you can do is get Vervain into your families and the town water supply as soon as possible as this will protect you from their mind control, it's called compulsion and ingesting or wearing or even holding Vervain prevents this, it also harms Vampires. I have given my number to Tracey, if any of you find or suspect a Vampire before I do, do not approach it, if you do, you will most probably die, you should text me straight away, do not speak about them in the open as they have excellent hearing and can hear everything. Any other questions?

TRACEY: No I think that covers it, thanks again Caleb.

CALEB: No problem, I did owe you one after all.

(TRACEY SMILES AT HIM)

(CALEB LEAVES THE ROOM)

(THE DOOR CLOSES)

DILLON: What did you do that made him owe you?

TRACEY: Now that's a long story.

(JACK WAS STILL CHUCKLING)

JEANNIE: Do you realise how disgusted I am with you?

JACK: You encouraged us.

(JEANNIE SMILES)

JEANNIE: A girl was killed on the outskirts of town, she was murdered.

(JACK LOOKED UP ATTENTIVELY)

ANGEL: What! Oh my God, who was she, did I know her?

JACK: Murder... in Gallows Hill?

JEANNIE: Yes, shocking I know. The name hasn't been released but apparently her whole family was butchered, there is a murderer in town, so I cannot simply let you walk home. I would rather you phone your Dad to come and pick you up, it is too dangerous out there.

ANGEL:...er....er....okay...Oh My God.

(JEANNIE HANDS HER THE DRINK)

JEANNIE: Here dearie, calm your nerves.

(ANGEL SIPS HER DRINK)

JACK: Have you added a new ingredient into the mix? It tastes different.

JEANNIE: You noticed huh? Yes I added a herb called Verbena, it's a natural calming agent, like Chamomile. Do you not like it?

JACK: No, it's nice, just different.

(ANGEL FINISHES HER DRINK AND STEPS AWAY)

JACK: Until now.

JEANNIE: You're not helping.

(JEANNIE GIVES JACK A DISGUSTED LOOK)

JACK: What!?

FAYE: Do you not have a cell phone?

(THE MAN PULLS OUT A CELL PHONE FROM HIS JACKET AND SHOWS IT TO HER)

???: Battery died.

(THE MAN SMILES)

FAYE: Okay, I will bring the phone out to you.

(THE MAN BECAME IRRITABLE)

(HE BEGAN TO CHATTER HIS TEETH)

FAYE: Sorry, how rude of me. Why don't you come in out of the cold.

???: Thank you, Ma'am.

FAYE: Not a problem.

(THE MAN SMILED AS HE STEPPED OVER THE THRESHOLD AND INTO THE HALLWAY)

(FAYE GOES BACK INTO THE KITCHEN TO FETCH THE PHONE)

(THE MAN HEARS A CAR PULL UP OUTSIDE AND QUICKLY DISAPPEARS IN VAMP-SPEED OUT OF THE DOOR)

(DILLON AND ANGEL STEP OUT OF THE CAR AND SEE THAT THEIR FRONT DOOR IS WIDE OPEN)

ANGEL: Oh God!! Mom!!

(ANGEL RUSHES INTO THE HOUSE)

DILLON: Angel! Wait!

(FAYE RETURNS FROM THE KITCHEN WITH THE PHONE IN HER HAND)

FAYE: Huh! Where did he go?

ANGEL: You're alright! When I saw the door ajar my heart sank.

(ANGEL RUNS UPTO FAYE AND HUGS HER TIGHTLY)

(DILLON WALKS IN)

DILLON: Are you hurt darling? Are you okay?

FAYE: Yes I am fine, what the hell are you talking about?

DILLON: There is a murderer in town and the front door was wide open.

FAYE: Oh! A man came to the door, he said that his car had broken down and he wanted to use the phone but he isn't here, he must have left.

DILLON: Shit!

FAYE: Dillon! Language.

(DILLON GRABS FAYE BY HER SHOULDERS)

DILLON: Did you invite him in?

FAYE: Dillon, you are hurting me!

DILLON: Answer me!

FAYE: What? Why?...Oh I see you thought I was having an affair. For fuck sake Dill.

DILLON: No that is not what I meant at all, I asked a simple question, did you invite him in?

FAYE: Well yes, of course I did. I wasn't going to leave him out in the cold but what does it matter he is gone now.

ANGEL: Will you two stop arguing please!!

DILLON: Oh it matters. Was he a local?

FAYE: No he had a Texan accent, out of towner.

DILLON: Fuck!

FAYE: Why does this matter?

DILLON: You should sit down. We need to talk.

ANGEL: Dad I don't like this, you know something, I can feel it.

DILLON: I really don't know where to start so I am just going to be blunt, please sit down.

(FAYE AND ANGELICA SAT DOWN ON THE COUCH)

(DILLON WALKED OVER TO THE DRINKS CABINET AND POURED HIMSELF SOME EXPENSIVE LOOKING WHISKEY FROM A CRYSTAL DECANTER)

(HE TOOK A BIG SIP)

DILLON: Are you aware of the history of Gallows Hill?

ANGEL: Do you mean the Witches?

FAYE: Oh God! I am going to need a drink too.

(DILLON HANDS HER HIS DRINK AND POURS HIMSELF ANOTHER GLASS)

DILLON: How would you react if I told you that the man that came to the door was a Vampire?

ANGEL: a what!?

FAYE: Oh for fuck sake Dill, you really have gone one flew over the cuccoo's nest this time. A Vampire? (Disbelief)

(FAYE BEGAN TO LAUGH)

DILLON: You will obviously need proof.

ANGEL: You are serious arn't you?

DILLON: Do you think I am some sort of teenage prankster? I speak the truth. This town has known and fought against the supernatural for centuries, The Founding Families are on high alert, the girl who was murdered on the outskirts of town was killed by a Vampire, look.

(DILLON THREW FAYE THE PLEASANT CASE FILE)

(FAYE OPENED THE FILE AND SAW THE PICTURES OF THE RIPPED APART BODIES UP AT THE PLEASANT FARM)

FAYE: Jesus! Oh my God! Gross! I don't want to see anymore!

(SHE THREW THE FILE BACK AT HIM AND BEGAN TO CRY)

DILLON: Have you ever known a Human to do that?

(FAYE SHAKES HER HEAD)

(ANGEL JUST SITS THERE IN SHOCK)

DILLON: Faye you invited a Vampire into our home, he can now come in uninvited anytime he wants, so we must find and dispose of him tonight, otherwise we are all in danger, especially when a Vampire could enter our home and slit out throats as we sleep. We need to move fast.

FAYE: You are crazy! Having a good laugh are you, frightening us with a spooky story to satisfy your twisted ego. I have had enough of these games!

DILLON: I am not playing, I speak the truth.

(ANGEL BEGINS TO CRY)

(FAYE PULLS HER CLOSE INTO AN EMBRACE)

FAYE: It's okay sweetie.

ANGEL: ..but it isn't. I have known Dad all my life and I know him and he is not lying, I know it's crazy right but he isn't lying I can tell.

FAYE: Believe me sweetie, your Father can lie, he is a professional at it,

DILLON: Dredging up the past as a deflection, so classy of you. Listen to me, this is not the past this is the now and Vampires have come to town and now have a free pass into our home any time they choose because of you.

FAYE: You are crazy, I cannot believe any of this. I mean Vampires? Seriously? This is Gallows Hill not friggin Transylvania!

DILLON: I need a drink.

FAYE: You need a fucking shrink!

DILLON: The girl who was killed is missing from the morgue, how do you explain that?

FAYE: I can't and I shouldn't have too. Vampires! Next you will be telling me Werewolves, Santa Claus and friggin Leprechauns exist, this was obviously just the crime of a psychotic and deranged killer, not a fucking Vampire! There is no such thing!

DILLON: If I said I could prove it to you, would you let me?

FAYE: Well you better because if you are lying to me, I will have you commited to an insane asylum.

ANGEL: Mom, where's Miles?

FAYE: He is upstairs.

(ANGEL WALKS UPSTAIRS)

FAYE: So prove it. Until then I refuse to believe your liquor induced fairytale.

(DILLON PULLS OUT HIS CELL PHONE)

(HE CALLS CALEB)

CALEB: Hello.

DILLON: Caleb, it is Dillon, the Vampire has been sighted.

CALEB: Where?

DILLON: My wife decided to invite him in and it would appear that we are not just dealing with the one.

CALEB: How so?

DILLON: The girl who was murdered out of town has gone missing from the morgue and a nurse was found bleeding from the neck, he didn't kill her, he turned her and who knows how many others.

CALEB: This needs to be nipped in the bud swiftly before they start turning people en masse, the Vervain isn't even in the water supply yet.

DILLON: Could you come by my house please. 

CALEB: Of course.

DILLON: It is 43 Oak off Central.

CALEB: I'll be right there, do not open the door and soak your wooden bullets in Vervain. That'll incapacitate the little bastard.

DILLON: Thank you.

(DILLON ENDED THE CALL)

FAYE: Who was that? If there even was anyone on the other end of the line.

(A SCREAM ECHOED FROM UPSTAIRS IT WAS ANGEL)

ANGEL: Mom, Dad!!!!! (SCREAMED)

(DILLON AND FAYE RUSH UPSTAIRS INTO MILES' ROOM)

(THE WINDOW IS WIDE OPEN)

ANGEL: He isn't here! What if the Vampire has him?

FAYE: For fuck sake there are no such thing as Vampires!

(THE SUITED MAN BURST THROUGH THE WINDOW, HIS VAMPIRE EYES AND FANGS IN PLAIN VIEW AND HE STOOD INFRONT OF THEM, HE HAD BLOOD ALL OVER HIS FACE, THEY WERE SO SHOCKED THEY COULDN'T MOVE, WHAT HAPPENED IN SECONDS FELT LIKE HOURS)

(THE MAN LOOKS AT DILLON)

???: I ask you Sheriff. Don't you just hate non-believers?

(THE MAN GRABBED FAYE, BIT HER NECK AND BEGAN TO FEED FROM HER)

(ANGEL STARTED TO HYSTERICALLY SCREAM AND CRY)

(DILLON PULLED OUT HIS GUN AND BEGAN TO SHOOT WOODEN BULLETS AT HIM)

(THE MAN STOPPED FEEDING AND THREW FAYE ACROSS THE ROOM)

(HE BEGAN WRECHING AND BEGAN TO VOMIT UP ALL THE BLOOD HE HAD DRANK FROM FAYE)

(THE MAN LOOKED AT FAYE)

???: Euuggh! What are you!?

(DILLON HAD A STAKE AND TRIED TO TACKLE THE VAMPIRE WHILST HE WAS DOWN BUT THE VAMPIRE GRABBED HIS ARM AND BROKE IT.)

(DILLON YELLED IN AGONY AND HE FELL DOWN TO THE FLOOR)

(THE VAMPIRE TURNED TO ANGEL WHO WAS STOOD SHAKING, HER LEGS WERE LIKE JELLY AND SHE WAS CLOSE TO WETTING HERSELF FROM SHEER FEAR)

DILLON: I will kill you! Stay the fuck away from my Daughter!

???: Well I guess you will have to do then, sweetcheeks.

(THE VAMPIRE GRABBED ANGEL AND DISAPPEARED WITH HER OUT OF THE WINDOW AT VAMP-SPEED)

DILLON: ANGEL!!!!!!!!! (Bellowed)

(DILLON BEGAN TO CRY, HIS SORROW SOON FLIPPED AND HE BECAME ENRAGED AND PUNCHED THE WALL WITH HIS GOOD ARM)

(DILLON CRAWLED OVER TO HIS WIFE; FAYE WHO WAS UNCONCIOUS IN THE CORNER OF THE ROOM, HE CHECKED HER PULSE, SHE WAS STILL ALIVE BUT HER PULSE WAS FEINT.)

(DILLON HEARD SOMEONE RUNNING UP THE STAIRS)

(THE DOOR SWUNG OPEN AND IT WAS CALEB STANDING THERE.)

CALEB: Oh God, is she alright?

DILLON: She will live. The Vampire broke my arm and he has my kids!

(DILLON BEGAN TO BREAKDOWN AS HE COULDN'T BARE THE THOUGHT OF HIS KIDS BEING KILLED OR WORSE)

(DILLON SOBBED INTO CALEB'S SHOULDER)

CALEB: I will get the fucker, you have seen what I am capable of, believe me, he will suffer for this.

DILLON:..but how will you find them, we have no clue as to where they are going.

CALEB: We do.

(CALEB PICKED UP ANGEL'S SCARVE THAT SHE HAD DROPPED AND SMELT IT)

CALEB: I can track scents, will will find them, I promise, in the meantime, you and your wife need to call an ambulance.

DILLON: No I must come with you, please.

CALEB: Well, lucky for you I have a first aid kit.

DILLON: What!?

(CALEB PULLED OUT A VIAL OF BLOOD FROM HIS COAT)

DILLON: Is that what I think it is?

(CALEB NODDED)

DILLON: No way! No way am I giving my wife Vampire blood.

CALEB: Do you want to come along or not, the more time we waste...

(DILLON SNATCHED IT FROM CALEB)

DILLON: Fine! Give it here.

(DILLON POURS THE CONTENT OF THE VIAL INTO FAYE'S MOUTH, DILLON WATCHES IN AWE AS HER WOUNDS HEAL ALMOST INSTANTANEOUSLY)

CALEB: Much quicker than an ambulance, she will be fine, let's go.

(CALEB AND DILLON SWIFTLY RUN DOWN THE STAIRS AND OUT OF THE DOOR, DILLON CRADLES HIS BROKEN ARM, THEY JUMP IN THE POLICE CAR AND START TO GIVE CHASE.) 

DILLON: You will have to drive, my arm is broken.

CALEB: Fine, let's hurry.

(CALEB GETS IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT AND SETS OFF AT HIGH SPEED.)

(CALEB OPENS THE WINDOW AND SMELLS THE AIR AND TURNS A CORNER SHARPLY)

DILLON: I should call my deputy.

(DILLON PULLS OUT HIS CELL PHONE AND CALLS NICK)

NICK: Dill, everything alright?

DILLON: No it really isn't, the Vampire has my kids.

NICK: I am on my way.

DILLON: I am not at the house, I am with Caleb, get in your car and meet us, we are heading up towards the Gallow Hill.

NICK: Copy.

DILLON: Please hurry.

(DILLON ENDS THE CALL)

DILLON: Do you have anymore of your "first aid kits"?

CALEB: No I only carry the one, sorry...but I do have this.

(CALEB HANDED DILLON A FANCY LOOKING CROSSBOW)

CALEB: This bespoke antique fires white oak arrows imbued with Vervain, I have killed many vampires with her and she is one of my babies so treat her right.

DILLON: You betcha.

CALEB: I call her Silvia. (Proudly)

DILLON: You named your crossbow!? (Disbelief)

CALEB: Of course, she is a fine old lady.

(THE RADIO CRACKLES)

NICK: (OVER THE RADIO) I see you now, I am waiting at the bottom of Gallow Hill, I will follow you up there.

(ANGEL BEGINS TO CRY)

ANGEL: Please I beg you, you don't have to do this!

???: Oh but I do, you see this town made me what I am today and this is payback, it is nothing personal, you are just collateral damage, my sweet.

(ANGEL LOOKS HIM RIGHT IN THE EYE)

ANGEL: Please.

???: Trying to appeal to some fragment of human empathy I might still possess, don't bother. I have already flipped that switch. Now my little pumpkin...

ANGEL: Don't you dare call me that, you don't get to call me that.

(THE VAMPIRE LEANS IN TOWARDS HER)

???: Pumpkin! (He touches her nose with faux-affection)

(ANGELICA QUIVERS)

(RUBY LAUGHS AS SHE SQUEEZES CALEB'S NECK)

RUBY: Shall I kill him Austin? Shall I squeeze his head until he bleeds to death from his eyes? (Crazed)

AUSTIN: Death is too quick, he must suffer, I would rather take my time, unravelling him piece by piece, that is always a much more satisfying form of vengeance.

(RUBY TURNS TO AUSTIN AND SMILES)

RUBY: You always were a sadist, little brother.

AUSTIN: Isn't that why you admire me?

(RUBY CHUCKLES)

RUBY: Well I guess we will be seeing you soon, little Hunter.

(HE RETURNS AFTER ABOUT 30 SECONDS HOLDING MADISON'S UNCONCIOUS BODY)

(JASMINE LOOKED AT JEANNIE AND SHE NODDED IN SILENT RESPONSE)

(JACKSON SAT DOWN NEXT TO NICK)

JEANNIE: Oh God, is she?

DILLON: No, she's alive thanks to Caleb.

JEANNIE: Me and Jasmine are going to go speak to the nurses, Jackson you wait here.

(JEANNIE AND JASMINE WALK THROUGH THE DOUBLE DOORS)

JASMINE: Do you think they suspect?

JEANNIE: Why would they, our families have hidden our secret for centuries.

JASMINE: I am probably just being paranoid.

JEANNIE: It is because you know what we have to do.

JASMINE: Can I count on you to lead the way?

JEANNIE: I am zoning into her right now.

(JASMINE AND JEANNIE FOLLOW A PATH THROUGH THE MAZE OF CORRIDORS AND THEY EVENTUALLY STOP OUTSIDE A ROOM)

DILLON: She told us to wait here.

ANGEL: This is a public place isn't it?

DILLON: What's your point?

ANGEL: They won't need an invitation to get in.

(THE REALISATION KICKS IN)

DILLON: You're right but how will we find them, we don't know which room they are in.

JEANNIE: Shit!

JASMINE: Did he see us?

JEANNIE: Oh, he saw us alright.

JASMINE: This is bad.

JEANNIE: Oh, you think!!!? I don't even know what The Founders would do if they ever found out about us, they used to burn your kind at the stake.

JASMINE: We need to find him quickly, then you can...

JEANNIE: I am not erasing my grandson's memory! We will have to explain, some how.

JASMINE: Good luck with that.

TAMMY: Bond?

OLIVIA: He calls it a Sire Bond. You're a Vampire now Tammy, or at least you will be, it's a whole new world. A world with no rules, you will be powerful. It is the ultimate liberation.

ANGEL: He should be out searching for Miles! Has anyone found Miles yet or at least a trail?

FAYE: No, but people are still looking, Caleb is out there right now.

(ANGEL STARTED CRYING)

ANGEL: The last time I saw him I was mean to him, we argued, I cannot bear the fact that I might not ever see him again! (Distraught)

ANGEL: Okay...okay (She breathes deeply and seemed to calm down)

ANGEL: Where's Natalie!? I need to speak to her.

FAYE: I bet you do.

(ANGEL GULPED)

FAYE: She is safe, she lost a lot of blood, the Vampires attacked both her and her friend, they fed from them, she is lucky to be alive, her friend wasn't as lucky, she died.

FAYE: I am sure she doesn't want visitors right now, she is in mourning.

TRACEY: It's okay Faye. I have just been to see her, her spirits seem more brighter today than they were yesterday. (She turns to Angel) She is in her room, she is fragile, the poor thing, did your Mom tell you that Madison died?

(ANGEL GULPED AND NODDED, SHE WAS STILL UNSURE WHETHER OR NOT THEY KNEW THAT SHE WAS THE KILLER)

NATALIE: and do you really think that I would rat out my own family and make it so my own uncle would have to arrest his own daughter?.. no, you have me all wrong. I did it to protect you.

ANGEL: What did you do Natalie? (Anxious and worried)

(DILLON LET OUT A DEEP SIGH OF RELIEF)

DILLON: Oh thank God, thank you...wait what's the bad news?

CALEB: It kinda led to a nest.

DILLON: What!!!!?

CALEB: He is still alive though, I could hear his heartbeat, if they were going to kill him they would have done it by now, they obviously have other plans than just food.

DILLON: We need to go now! I need my Son!

(CALEB PATTED DILLON'S CHEST)

CALEB: Calm down buddy, we will get them and save him but we do it in the day, if we were to strike now we would all die.

DILLON: Tell me where he is? I will go myself!

DILLON: You tell me where my Son is, now! (Bellowed)

NATALIE: Seriously bitch, you don't get to talk to me like that after what I did for you!

ANGEL: I think you will find I can and I did.

NATALIE: Are you all too quick to forget about your mood swing the other night? You know the one where you was making like the exorcist with the demonic voice and freaky red eyes!

ANGEL: I don't know what happened, I swear to God, I don't.

NATALIE: You're lying.
