==The Walking Dead:
(Storyline Including My Character & His Story)

by
Jay Mills==

House somewhere In King County
[The flashback shows the lead character, Noah, at home with his little sister named Ali(16) in the morning the siblings are leaving for school. No audio is heard, but it is shown that they have a very close brother/sister bond. The siblings leave, Noah is a freshmen in College and Ali is a sophomore in high school. Noah hugs her as she gets on the bus for her school and he drives away to college. We then see him sitting in a classroom doing work and he then starts narrating from the present.]
Noah
The memories of the things you lose are the ones that haunt you for the rest of you life, the moment you realize there gone...forever. Great neigbors that helped take care of me and sister because our parents are always working. The times we had with them growing up... the good and the bad. These are the things I remember...before my entire world fell into hell itself.
Prof. Terrow
So knowing that the circumference of the circle is 223, what would you get if--
girl near window
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
Second floor window of the classroom
[Everyone looks at the screaming girl who is pointing outside the window. They all rush towards the window and see a creature-like person devouring a male student. The class goes into an uproar and the creature looks up at them. The creature starts moving towards the building and the students begin to run out of the room, except for Noah and the Teacher]
Prof. Terrow
Noah come on we have to leave!!!
[Noah is staring at the student. he knew him: Jason, a friend of his. He’s in complete shock, but then notices Jason moving]

Noah
Jason!!! Professor Terrow, it’s Jason he’s still--
[He stops once he see’s that Jason now looks like the creature that attacked him. Only he still has his entrails hanging out and he looks dead pale, his eyes are clouded over and he is moaning and groaning. He looks up at the window and see Noah and Terrow, and rushes toward the building]
Noah
OH MY GOD!!! Jason!!
Terrow
Noah come on we have to leave!
[Terrow pulls Noah by the arm and more or less drags him out of the room. The hallway is completely deserted by now, but screaming can be heard on the lower floors and outside. They both look at each other and stay close. They then see someone come up from the stairs. They at first looked happy to see someone else but they quickly realize that the person is one of “them”. It slowly makes it’s way down the hall]
Terrow
The other way go!
[They turn to go the other way but there is also another one of them coming up the other side]
Noah
[He looks to the right and sees that the room next to them is where they were having construction done outside, and were using a scaffold to go up and down the side of the building] This way!
[Noah runs into the room with Terrow right behind him. Terrow shuts the door and quickly moves the cabinet nearby in front of it. Noah opens the window to see that the Walkers haven’t reached this side of the building yet and that there is a car parked in front of the building]
Noah
Professor, through here--we can use the scaffold to get down!

Terrow
Noah Wait!!!
[Noah steps onto the scaffold and turns to see that Terrow is having trouble securing the door. He rushes back and helps him block off the door. They secure the door and run to the window. Only now there are a few Walkers walking around in the front]
Noah
What now!?!
Terrow
*Thinks for a second, and has a idea* Hold on! *He runs to the cabinet and breaks it open* This is the cooking classroom, we can make some make-shift weapons.*He takes out a thick kitchen cleaver. He then goes to the corner of the room and breaks off the handle to a broom, he takes some duck-tape nearby and tapes it to the stick* Here.
Noah
What!?! How am I suppose to use that?
Terrow
Swing and hit, at the very least use it to keep them at a distance. (He then Takes another knife and a large frying pan) You never know!
Noah
*Notices the barricade starts failing* Let’s go!!!
[They run to the window and notice that the amount of walkers is steadily increasing. Noah gestures for Terrow to go first but Terrow tells him to go. Noah gets out onto the scaffold and begins climbing down, with Terrow following behind closely. Noah makes it down and looks up to Terrow.]
Noah
Come on Mr. Terrow! We need to hurry!
Terrow
I’m going as fast as I can Noah, I’m not as young as I--LOOK OUT!!!
[Noah turns around to see a Walker very close to him. He screams and freezes. He hears Terrow yell “kill it”! Noah recognizes her; Jill, she was always a quiet shy girl, but she was always nice. He doesn’t know what to do]
Terrow
NOAH, THAT’S NOT JILLIAN ANYMORE!!! KILL IT BEFORE IT KILLS YOU!!!
Noah
*Hesitates* I-I can’t--[Jill growls and bum rushes towards him and that puts Noah on the defense] I’m sorry! [He takes the cleaver/spear and swings straight across, decapitating her] Oh my God!!!
Terrow
[He reaches the bottom and grabs Noah and pulls him with him running towards the car] Don’t stop!!!
[They reach the car but the Walkers are all closing in on them. Mr. Terrow starts hot-wiring the car.]
Noah
How do you know how to do that!?
Terrow
A story for another time! Hold on!!!
[The car starts and they drive off]
Noah
*Sighs* What’s going on!?! Mr. Terrow--
Jonah
Please Noah now that all this is happening I think we can skip pleasantries, So just call me Jonah.
Noah
Okay, Jonah what do we do?

Jonah
We look for other survivors. The more people we have with us the better chances of surviving we’ll have.
Noah
Well, lets turn on the radio and see if there’s any reports on this.
Radio
*Noah turns on the radio while it’s in mid-report* Unclear as to how this phenomenon occurred, but the steady increase of affected individuals continues to sky-rocket. King County, GA has been alerted to seek refuge outside of the city. The following cities have been stationed as “at the moment” safe-havens: Charlotte, N.C., Jackson, M.S., Atlanta, G.A.--
Jonah
Atlanta, it’s the closest one and probably our best chance. *Looks at the amount of gas the car has* We gotta full tank, with luck we may be able to make it there without few stops.
Noah
*Shocked* Wait! Ali!!! My sister, we have to go to her school and get her!
Jonah
Noah I--
Noah
NO!!! I’m her brother, I don’t care if the world IS going to hell, nothing’s changed that. We are going to her school. If you don’t want to help me just drop me off and I’ll look by myself.
Jonah
*Sighs* Okay, but what will you do if--

Noah
She’s alive! I just--I just know, okay?
[We cut to the front of the school. It’s completely empty, no one/ nothing is inside. Noah is in shock that its already spread this quickly]
Noah
God, why-- how did this happen so fast?
Jonah
We can think about that once we get your sister. *He puts his hands on Noah’s shoulders* Were gonna make it Noah. *Noah nods his head* Where would Ali be?
Noah
*Noah thinks for a second and snaps up* The Auditorium!
Jonah
Why the Auditorium?
Noah
She has Theatre first period! There’s plenty of places for her to hide in there...if she got the chance to.
Jonah
Okay lets go.*He pulls out his knife and noah ready’s his spear* Quietly.
[They get low and walk through the front of the building. They look around and don’t notice any Walkers, so they continue towards the auditorium. They DO notice blood everywhere, book-bags, some phones. Some posters have been ripped off the walls and blood is also splattered on the walls. Noah looks sad, he went here, he knew people here and he knows that the probability of the people he knew still being alive is slim to none. They reach the auditorium]

Noah
[He slowly makes it to the door and motions for Jonah to wait. He peeks through the door and then quickly AND quietly shuts it back, he has a look of shock and fear on his face] Oh...my...God!!!
Jonah
*whispered* What!?
Noah
*Looks around and sees the door to the room that overlooks the auditorium is open. He motions for Jonah to follow him up. He checks to see if any Walkers are in there, but there aren’t so he continues going up. Once they reach the part that overlooks the auditorium he points out* That!
[We now see that a herd Walkers are crowded in the auditorium devouring random people or just walking around]
Jonah
OH MY GOD!!! They must have tried to hold up in here, but ended up just trapping themselves in!
[Noah looks extremely worried, if they DID try to stay safe in here, then Ali was probably in here as well. However, he is unable to spot her among the walkers or...bodies. Then all of a sudden he sees the bottom window where the pit of the stage is open slightly... and sees Ali peek out!]
Noah
*Grabs at Jonah* Look! Down below the stage-there she is!!!
Jonah
Dear God!!! How has she not been found!?!

Noah
Ali is the Theatre teachers second in command, more or less, she has keys to the entire auditorium. She probably managed to get down there and lock the doors. Only now...
Jonah
She can’t get out.
[Noah looks extremely worried. Then he has an idea and starts rustling through his pocket and pulls out his keys]
Jonah
What are you doing?
Noah
Me and Ali both have a set of laser-lights on our keychains. We use to use them to talk to each other through Morse Code when we had classes here.
Jonah
How do you two know Morse Code?
Noah
Dad taught us, something he picked up as a police officer.
[He takes out the laser-light, points it down to the window where Ali is and starts flickering it on and off, talking in Morse Code to her. A few seconds go by and nothing happens. Then they see Ali Flashing back with her light]
Noah
*Sighs* Oh thank God!
Jonah
What? What did she say?
Noah
She said that she’s safe, she locked the doors on both sides and killed all the lights in here so they couldn’t see her. But she said she is trapped down there and that she’s afraid that they may try to get in.
Jonah
Then we need to find a way to get her out of there without getting killed. Any ideas?
Noah
[Thinks for a few seconds. He looks around the room for anything they could use] Wait a minute! These things seem to be attracted to sound right?
Jonah
Seems that way.
Noah
Maybe we could use that to our advantage. If I could get the sound-board to work, I can make it go off all over the room. *Explains it more to Jonah* See *Points to the ceilings and walls* They have built in speakers all over this place. If I can get it to work right they’ll hear it coming from everywhere, and hopefully that’ll distract them enough to give us the upper-hand.
Jonah
Wait--your saying we’re just gonna bum-rush in there? Are you sure that’ll work?
Noah
*Thinks* Maybe...*Runs to the corner of the room and pulls out a bat* Yes! Here, take this!
Jonah
What’s that up here for?
Noah
Mr.Dolson thought he could use it to scare anyone that broke in the school off with it. *Frowns* Guess it didn’t work so well for him. *Jonah Takes the bat* Okay, I still have mine *Grips his spear* but you should go first since you got the heavy-hitting weapon.*Jonah nods* I’ll stick to your back and swipe at any on the sides. *Goes over to the sound board* Ready? *Jonah nods*
[Noah starts messing with the sound board. All of a sudden random sounds start blaring all over the room. The Walkers start looking around(at the ceiling and walls. They then move towards the walls and start scratching at them. Some of the Walkers make their way out the side doors, seems like they are looking outside for the sounds. The right part of the auditorium now has a clear path towards the bottom where Ali is]
Jonah
Now?
Noah
Wait...(waits for a few more to take notice and leave them a good bit of distance from them when they finally got down there. The entire mid-section of the auditorium is now clear, with the majority of the walkers now either at the walls or out the side doors] NOW!!!
[They run down the steps and bust through the auditorium doors. None of the walkers have noticed them yet, so they ease their way down to the bottom. They make it to the bottom and Ali opens the window. She has tears pouring down her face and she is whimpering]
Ali
Noah! *Crying* Oh thank God, I was scared that you--you didn’t-
Noah
Shhhhh... it’s okay Ali. Were gonna get you out of there, just hold on.
Ali
[We hear breaking wood, and we then see the doors keeping the Walkers out of the room Ali’s in start to break] Oh my God Noah, their getting in!
Jonah
Noah!
Noah
*Noah turns around and sees that the Walkers in the room have noticed them. They start making their way to them* Ali can you fit through the window?
Ali
*looks at the window size* I-I think so!

Noah
Okay*Lifts the window seal as high as it can go* Come on!
[Ali starts climbing out the window, and the Walkers finally bust through the doors. She screams, but keeps moving. She makes it out the window in time, but nearly gets grabbed by one of the Walkers]
Noah
Okay now we gotta--
[They see that the walkers have cut off the top entrances and are closing in. Ali is crying and Jonah is in front of them with his bat ready. Noah looks to the left and sees that the doors leading out to the side exit are clear of Walkers]
Noah
This way, COME ON!!!
[They run towards the exit. Jonah knocks a walker in the head-killing it and they keep running. They make it outside to see that more Walkers are closing in on the school]
Ali
What do we do now Noah!?
Noah
[He looks left and sees that the buses are still there and a slight smile crosses his face] The buses! Come on!
Jonah
*Said while their running* What good is a bus gonna do us, I can’t hot-wire bus!
Noah
*After they reach a specific bus* You won’t have to! *He Pulls the doors open and motions for them to get in* This is Mr.Dolson’s bus, if I a remember correctly...[Looks through the top glove compartment] Yes! He always kept his bus keys here! *Throws them to Jonah* Can u drive a bus? Jonah
I’ll guess we’ll find out! *He runs to the driver’s seat and starts turning the bus on*
[As soon as he sit’s down the Walkers reach the bus and starts clawing and pushing it around. Some are trying to break the door open. One manages to break the glass on one of the door panels.
Ali
*Screams* Noah!
[Noah Grabs the spear and runs to the door]
Noah
Sorry, this bus is [Thrust the spear into the Walkers head] FULL!!!
[The Walker falls back into the rest of the Walkers. Jonah gets the bus cranked and starts driving]
Jonah
Hang on you two!
[Jonah punches the gas and runs over a several Walkers. He makes a sharp turn, which causes Noah and Ali to fall back into different seats. They drive off leaving the school behind. Ali looks out her window at the school and breaks down in tears. Noah gets up out of his seat to where she is sitting and takes her in his arms]
Noah
It’s okay Ali, we’re gonna be okay.
Ali
*Pops up* Mom and Dad! And the Grimes! We have to go home and see if--
Noah
*Cuts her off* We can’t go home Ali. *She looks at him both shocked and confused.* They aren’t their Ali, they were at work when this all happened. You know as well as I do that they wouldn’t wan’t us to risk our lives to go looking for them.
Ali
But Noah--
Jonah
Your brother’s right Ali. Plus, if your parent’s are anything like you two their probably safe.
Ali
*She looks mad for a second but just slumps down crying in Noah’s arms* But-But what if they-
Noah
Shhhh, don’t think like that Ali. Don’t think of Mom and Dad like that, just think of them like we saw them this morning, same for the Grimes.
Ali
*She obviously is still scared but she nods her head* So where ARE we going then?
Jonah
Atlanta.
Noah & Ali
What!?
Noah
Why are we going INTO one of the biggest cities in the country, while all this is happening?
Ali
Noah’s right, all the people their are probably those things now. Why would we go where they are?
Jonah
Because it’s the nearest city, and if that’s where these things are then there all likely other survivors. If we can find them and join up with them will have a better chance of surviving all this.
Noah
And if we don’t find any survivors?

Jonah
*Pause* Then we keep running until we DO, I guess.
Noah
*Noah and Ali look at each other and she agrees* Okay then, Atlanta, Georgia hopefully not one way.
[We then cut to night time, the bus is driving down the main road to Atlanta. We can see that there are corpses and Walkers scattered around, but they just ignore the bus as it passes. Noah has Ali sleeping on his shoulder, but he gently slips her down and gets up to check on Jonah]
Noah
How are you doing Mr. Terrow?
Jonah
Still being formal, huh?
Noah
*Slight Chuckle* Well, I guess I’m just use to it.

Jonah
*Smiles* Yeah. Well, I’m doing fine for the most part. How about you and your sister?
Noah
We’re okay, you know considering what’s going on.
Jonah
Yeah, I understand.*silence* So who are the Grimes?
Noah
What-oh, you caught that?
Jonah
Yep!

Noah
*Sighs* The Grimes were our neighbors, we’ve known them for years! They were some of the nicest people you’d ever meet.*Chuckles* And there was Shane too.
Jonah
Shane?
Noah
Oh-Shane Walsh. He was like Ricks best friend, and his partner. Anyway, Rick and Lori, his wife, always took care of me whenever my parents had to work through the night. I even asked them once if they could be my “other mommy and daddy”. *They both share a laugh* Oh that reminds me, there was this one time when Rick and Lori had a cookout, and they invited us over. When I got their I saw them...and Shane. *His voice gets soft and sincere, sounds like he’s holding back tears now*. And the first thing I did was run to him, he got down on one knee picked me up in his arms and *starts crying a little* spinned me in the air. He and Rick always told me to just call them “Uncle Shane” and “Uncle Rick”. You know I always loved them both, but in the end I always though of Shane as more of a father. *Completely breaks down* What do I do Jonah? What do I do if they are all--
Jonah
Noah listen to me.*Noah stops* I don’t know much about you or your family, but from what I’ve seen you’ve handled this better than most people have. But what you don’t need to do is go on “What If’s” now. Right now what you NEED to do is focus on keeping you and your sister alive through all this.
Noah
What about you?
Jonah
I’ll be fine as long you two have my back. *Looks at Noah and smiles. Noah smiles back and then yawns* Now you need to go and get some sleep. I’ll pull over when I think we’re safe and catch a few winks myself. It may take us longer to get to Atlanta now, though. If we had been able to get back to the car we had, we would've been there within a day or so. Now, with this old bus I think it may take us a little longer.

Noah
Why's that?

Jonah

This thing eats up gas pretty quickly, we're already on a fourth of a tank. I think we may pass by a few stations on this road though, I've went to Atlanta on this road before, past lots of them. Not to mention the fact we're gonnna need food and find a bathroom... if we can. *Noah looks down in worry, Jonah notices this and smiles* Don't worry Noah, that doesn't mean we won't make it. It just means we got a lot of work ahead of us. As long as we stick together though, we'll be fine... trust me.

[Noah nods and smiles at Jonah, he then heads to the back and sits down in a seat next to Ali’s. He leans his head against the window, closes his eyes and falls asleep. We then cut to the next morning and show the bus stop at a gas station. The following events take place in small flashes, to help show the small passing of time to help coincide with the timing of the events that take place before Ricks arival at the Atlanta Safe Zone. No sound is heard throughout these events. We see Jonah and Noah fill the bus with gas. A few Walkers approach but they manage to fill the bus up and leave before they reach them. We then see them continue on the road to Atlanta. What would normally be a "short trip" has become more of a good length trip, due to the matter of having to stop for food, rest, "restroom", etc. We then finally reach the night before they make it to the road leading straight to Atlanta. It's night time, Jonah is driving the bus. Ali has fallen asleep in the row next to Noah, and Noah smiles. He's happy she's finally seemed to found a bit of peace. He then lays his head back and falls asleep. We then go into a dream, showing Noah among a pile of bodies, looking scared. Then all of a sudden his sister, who is now a walker attacks him, and one by one everyone gets up and has turned into Walkers. Before they can devour him, he wakes up]

Interstate 85 road, near the location of the survivor camp
[Noah wakes up to see that the bus is stopped in the middle of the road. he looks out the window to see that they are on the interstate to Atlanta, near a patch of woods. He then notices that the doors are open and Jonah is gone. He quickly gets up and rushes out the doors, after seeing that Ali is gone too.]
Noah
Ali!? Jonah!? *Looks around*
Ali
Noah, over here.
[Noah looks to the front of the bus and see’s Ali waving, he rushes over to see that she’s okay]
Noah
Don’t scare me like that. *looks for Jonah* Where’s Mr. Terrow?
Jonah
Over here!
Noah
*Runs to the other side of the bus and sees Jonah looking at the rear tire* Don’t tell me-
Jonah
Tire’s low on air, we can’t keep driving or it’s gonna blow.
Ali
So what do we do?
Noah
*Thinks for a few minutes* We keep going.
Ali
What!?
Noah
We can’t stop moving, if we do then we’re just gonna be found by those things eventually. We have to make the rest of the distance on foot.
Ali
You can’t be serious, WALK to a city on a road that is probably crawling with thousands of those things? I thought we were trying to stay alive, not commit suicide?

Noah
Well it’s either that or wait for them to find us here Ali, and I for one don’t want to die huddled in a corner. *Ali starts to object* Ali listen, I know your scared but your not the only one. I’m scared out of my mind right now, but i know that if I let that control me I might as well just lay down and let them have a free meal.
Ali
*Hesitant at first, but realizes he’s right* Okay Noah, I’m sorry I just--
Noah
I know Ali, I know *Hugs her*
Jonah
Oh no!
[Noah and Ali turn to Jonah to see that there are Walkers closing in on them from the back of the road]
Noah
*Runs back into the bus, grabs the spear, bat, and frying pan, and runs back out to the others* Here*Hands the bat to Jonah* and here Ali, *Hands her the frying pan* never know.
Jonah
Okay, let’s go!!!
[They start running up the road, but it’s not long before the Walkers start coming from the front of the road. Now they are blocked both sides]
Ali
*Looks to the left and see’s that the path through the woods is clear* There! *She runs*
Noah
ALI WAIT!!!
[Ali makes it past a tree in the at the edge of the woods before a walker pops up in front of her. She panics and hits it in the head with the frying pan, stunning it]
Jonah
*Him and Noah come up behind Ali and Jonah grabs her by the arm and pulls her with them* Nice shot, my girl!
[Ali smiles. They keep running. Noah accidently slips and falls down a small hill. Ali and Jonah catch up with him and he say's he's fine, and they all keep running. Finally, they all are tired and slow down, they look back, on the sides of the woods and in front for Walkers. They don’t see any and all slump over out of breath]
Noah
It *huff* looks like we’re *huff* clear.
Ali
I knew taking Track & Field would come in handy some day.
Jonah
I wish I had had that same *heavy huff* opportunity.

Noah
*They all catch their breath, and then Noah looks up and sees two silhouettes off in the woods, they are walking like normal people and they appear to be carrying guns* Look! There’s people over there!
Jonah
How do you know there “People”?
Noah
They’re just moving differently, see? We should see if they--*Suddenly, he falls to his knees, he’s tired and weak, and he still feels sore from the fall from earlier, he can’t go much farther*
Ali
NOAH!
Noah
I-I’m just tired *whences* and a little sore, I’ll be fine.

Jonah
Ali, see if you can help your brother up, we need to see if those people can help us. *Ali nods. She puts her head underneath one of Noah’s arms and helps him walk right*
[They start walking towards the figure. We then see that the figures are Shane Walsh, accompanied by Dale. They appear as if their hunting/on watch. They notice Jonah and point their guns at him]
Shane
Stop right there!
Jonah
Whoa, easy. We’re just looking for other survivors, we’re not infected or whatever your calling it.

Dale
We?
[Shane and Dale then notice Ali and Noah]
Shane
ALI!? NOAH!?
Ali
Mr. Walsh!? *Lets Noah lean on Jonah, and rushes to Shane and hugs him* Thank God your okay. We were so worried!
Shane
*Hugging her back* Yeah, me too. *Notices Noah and a look of strong happiness beams through his face. He releases Ali and rushes over to Noah, the happiness turns to worry once he sees that Noah appears to be in pain and is sweating very badly* Noah? Are you-Are you okay? What’s wrong?

Noah
*Looks at Shane but it’s obvious he’s losing himself* Shane! *he too looks happy now, yet he can't rally show it due to the pain he's feeling*, I-I’m fine. *Shane looks extremely worried, he can tell that Noah is lying, and is in extreme pain* Don’t worry I’ll... be... fine-- *Noah passes out and Shane manages to catch him before he hits the ground*
Ali, Shane, Jonah
NOAH!
Shane
Noah!?*Shakes Noah* NOAH!?!?
[The image fades out from Noah’s point of view, which shows the faces of Shane, Ali, Jonah, and Dale]
Atlanta-survivor camp, inside Dales RV
[Noah is lying on a bed, he starts to stir and sits up. He opens his eyes to see he’s in a RV]
Dale
Finally woke up, huh?
Noah
*Noah jumps and looks over to see the man that was with Shane from before* Who-Who are you?
Dale
The name’s Dale, and this here is my RV. She may not look like much but she’s helped these people in more way’s than one.
Noah
Wait-Ali and Jonah! Where are-
Dale
Calm down son, your sister is fine and so is the other guy. You, on the other hand, are the one who should be asked if your okay?

Noah
What do you mean? *Turns his legs so their hanging off the edge of the bed and touching the floor*
Dale
Well...you’ve been out for ‘bout six hours. And we couldn’t get you to wake up! We were beginning to wonder if you ever would. They told about that nasty fall you took, your lucky that you don't appear to have broken or punctured anything.
Noah
What? I don’t-
[Suddenly he remembers]
Noah
Oh, yeah, sorry about that.
Dale
*Chuckles* It’s okay, I probably would have passed out too, running for as long you guys were. Me being as old as I am and all.
Noah
*Chuckles* Your not THAT I old, I think. *Dale laughs*
Ali
*Ali pops in the RV* Dale any news-- Oh my God Noah *She rushes over and hugs him* Are you okay?

Noah
I’m fine Ali. What about you?
Ali
I’m okay, *pops up* Oh yeah,Lori and Carl are here! They wanna see you!
Noah
What!? Really, where?
Ali
Follow me!
[She runs out of the RV and Dale just chuckles. He smiles at Noah and Noah returns it. He gets up and walks out of the RV with Dale behind him. He steps out to see that the group has set up a small camp, he’s amazed at how it feels like the things going on now seem so far away. He looks around and sees different people doing different things. He then see’s Lori and Carl talking with Ali and Shane. Ali turns and notices Noah and points him out to Lori. Lori looks happy and starts to do a slow jog towards Noah. Noah however runs full force towards her. He reaches her and hugs her and starts crying, Lori just wraps her arms around him and comforts him]
Lori
Shhhh, it’s okay sweetie...it’s okay.
Noah
Lori*Crying* Oh God, Lori! I was so worried you guys didn’t--
Lori
I know Noah, I know. *Kisses his forehead* I’m glad you and Ali are okay, Carl was getting worried about you too.
Noah
*Looks up and see’s Carl* Oh, *sniff* Come here bro! *Takes Carl in his arms and hugs him. He has considered Carl the little brother he never had*
Carl
Noah! I’m glad your okay, it wouldn’t have been the same without you and Ali.

Shane
*Walks up and smiles at Noah. Noah looks up at him, he lets go of Carl and stands up. He looks at Shane for a second and then embraces him. Shane just holds him in his arms. He too has always considered Noah as a son. And seeing him gives him a since of peace* I’m glad you and your sister are safe Noah. It’s nice to know we haven’t lost everybody.
Noah
What about Rick? Where’s he at?
Shane
*There’s a dead silence amongst the group and Shane, Carl, Lori, and Ali all look sad after the question is asked* He's...gone. As far as we know, he never made it out of the hospital.
Noah
What...no.
Shane
I’m sorry, Noah.
Noah
*Brushes off Shane’s hand* NO! Ricks alive, I just know it. He has to be!
Lori
Noah, it’s okay. You aren’t the only one who misses him.
Noah
I’m NOT missing him, you know Rick. He’s a survivor, if anyone can survive this he can. I’m sure he woke up.
Shane
*puts his hand on Noah’s shoulder* Noah-
Noah
*Brushes Shane off* *flares* OH JUST FORGET IT!!!
[Noah runs off towards the field outside of the camp. Ali starts running off but Shane holds her back]
Shane
It’s okay Ali, he’s just trying to cope thats all. *Ali slumps back down, Lori comes up behind her and puts her hands on her shoulders. They walk off towards a few other women* Dale?
[. Dale pops his head up and looks at Shane. He motions for him and Dale walks to him ]
Dale
Yeah?
Shane
Could you go after Noah and make sure he’s okay? I have to check on a few things.
Dale
*takes out his gun* Sure, I could use the exercise.
Area close to the camp, at the top of the road right where Glenn is about to show up in the car
[Dale is walking up the road, looking left and right for Noah, he looks somewhat agitated. He finally notices Noah sitting on the ground near the hill of the road that overlooks the camp. He is hesitant]
Dale
Hey, *huff* Noah? *He looks up* You okay?
Noah
*Looks back to the horizon* Honestly, I really don’t know.
Dale
*He has a look of understanding on his face. He sighs and sits down next to him, with his gun by his side* Yeah, I know how that feels.
Noah
I doubt it.
Dale
*Laughing huff* Try me.
Noah
Well, I think I’m going crazy.
Dale
Been there.
Noah
And I have no idea what I should do.
Dale
DEFINITELY been there.
Noah
I just can’t accept the fact that Rick’s dead. I’ve lost so many already, I don’t know how much more I can take before--
Dale
Noah, you can’t let that control you.
Noah
What?
Dale
Fear, “what if’s”, if you do then your just gonna get yourself killed.
Noah
*Looks sad, but understands* I know, I just don’t know how.
Dale
*Points down to Shane, Lori and Carl* You look to the people you still have, and you fine hope in them *chuckles* wow, that sounded a lot better in my head then it did when it came out.
Noah
*Smiles* Yeah, I guess...thanks.
Dale
Don’t mention it, so you ready to head back?
Noah
Yeah I guess so.
[They both stand up and start to walk back to camp, but then they hear Glenn's car]
Noah
What's that?
[Dale pulls out his gun and shoves Noah behind him]
Dale
Don't know.

[All of a sudden Glenn whirls around the corner in his car and stops in front of them]

Glenn
Hey Dale, *looks at Noah* whose the new kid?

Dale
Jesus Glenn trying to give an old man a heart attack?

Glenn
No, but hey if you guys want a lift back down hop in, it's a pretty sweet ride. *Realizes* Huh, well how about that, come back to someone new bringing someone new.

Noah
What do you mean?

Glenn
We picked up a guy, helped us out of a tight spot, what was his name...

[The truck that is hauling everyone else comes up behind the curve and Noah sees Rick in the drivers seat]
Noah
Ri-Rick!? * He goes into a excited shock and starts running. Rick see's Noah and he gets out of the car and runs to him too. Noah makes it halfway to Rick before Rick makes the rest of the distance and they hug* Oh my God, Rick! *Starts crying* Your here, your really here!

Dale
*happy* Glenn, why don't you drive me back down, I think Noah will ride with them.

Glenn
*Unsure whats going on* O...kay?
Rick
Noah, oh thank God your okay! I was worried you guys didn’t make it.
Noah
*Smiles and pulls away* Lori, Carl and Shane are okay too. There all back at the camp!
Rick
*A look of shock and happiness crosses his face* Lori...Carl... and Shane? Their okay!? There alive!?
Noah
*Nods his head* Their all okay, Ali’s there too! They're all down at the camp.

Rick
*Huffs in happiness* Come on. *They hop in the truck*
Atlanta-survivor camp
[Everyone is still working on different things. Jonah is with Ali and they’re talking. Shane is chastizing Glenn for his car. The truck finally reaches the bottom too. Everyone steps out of the car. Morales tells Rick to come meet everybody. Noah looks at Rick and smiles and nods his head. They exit the truck together. Carl and Lori notice Rick]

Carl
Dad! Dad!

[Noah just stands behind Rick as Rick walks to Carl and Lori, crying tears of joy. He moves over to the edge near the hill next to the truck. Carl and Rick embrace, Rick picks him up, walks to Lori and they all share the embrace. Rick puts Carl down and kisses Lori, and then he Notices Shane and walks over to him]
Rick
Shane.
Shane
Rick, gotta say buddy, I was starting to think you didn’t make it. *He smiles at him and him and Rick hug each other, patting each other on the back and smiling*
Lori
Rick, Shane’s the one who helped me and Carl make it here. If it wasn’t for him, we’d probably be dead.
Rick
*Looks at Shane and takes his hand in appreciation* Thank you.
Shane
Don’t mention it.
Carl
Dad, your back! Your really okay!
[Everyone looks at them happy, it’s been a long time since they saw something good happen]
Jaqui
LOOK OUT!
[Everyone looks at Jaqui, unsure of what she’s talking about, but then they see it. A Walker had appeared and had apparantly climbed the cliff and had come up behind Noah. Noah flings around, see’s it and freezes: He’s defenseless, he doesn’t know what to do]

Jonah
Noah, RUN!!! *Jonah is standing with Ali, holding her back from running to her brother and putting herself in danger*
Shane
Damn it! *Pulls out his gun and aims at the walker but he can’t get a good angle because Noah's in the way*
Rick
Noah, NO! *Runs towards Noah*
[Noah looks scared and shocked, but he can’t run away, he’s never been so defenseless in his life. The Walker then makes a advanced towards Noah and knocks him to the ground. Noah is holding the Walker back with his hands and arms, screaming for help. The walker keeps biting at him. Noah finally manages to get a grip at its throat and pushes it’s head back. Suddenly, The walker slumps over, Shane finally managed to get a shot and got him right in the head. Noah is moaning and is hunched over, hiding his front half. Rick gets Noah and pulls him to his feet]
Rick
Noah! Are you okay?
Noah
*moans* I’ll be fine *has his hand covered*
Rick
*Pauses when he see’s his hand is hidden, and the looks him dead in the eyes* Let me see.
Noah
*Walks past Rick towards the rest of the group* I’m fine Rick, it’s just a scratch. *The rest of the group see’s his hand is hidden and they all share a look of caution and fear*
Shane
*Walks towards Noah and stops him* Show me.
[Noah is crying now, he looks at Shane and then at Rick who is now standing next to Shane. The rest of the group draws in closer as well, still being cautious. Noah then slowly pulls at his hand... and shows that the Walker managed to bite him! The Walker didn’t rip any of his hand off, but he still left a deep bite wound on him. The wound is already showing signs of infection and is bloody. Shane and Rick both look completely Shocked and sad. The rest of the group reacts as well, Ali falls to the ground crying and Jonah sits down and comforts her. Lori holds Carl close and they are both shedding tears. Andrea puts her hand on Amy’s shoulder and the both look at each other with sadness]
Ali
No...no no no no NO! Noah no! *crying*
Shane
Damn. *looks down, trying to hide his eyes*
Rick
I’m so sorry Noah.
Noah
No... I’m sorry.
Rick
It’s not your fault.
Noah
No... I’m sorry that you had to find out this way.
[The group looks confused, and all of a sudden Noah falls to the ground writhing in pain. He is shaking and screaming. Rick and Shane run to his side and see if they can see what’s wrong]
Shane
Noah? What’s wrong?
Noah
*Through clenched teeth and screams* JUST GET AWAY!!!
Rick
Noah, we’re not gonna leave you!

Ali
*Gets free from Jonah and runs to Noah’s side* Noah, Noah please, don’t leave me. PLEASE DON’T LEAVE ME! *She grabs his hand and quickly pulls it back* He feels like he’s on fire!
[Shane tries to pick Noah up, but Noah just pushes him away]
Noah
DON’T TOUCH ME, IT’S...ALMOST ...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!
[Suddenly, Noah stops. He is breathing heavily and clutching his hand]
Ali
Noah! *Turns him over and see’s that he’s okay, and then she’s his hand* LOOK!
[Rick and Shane look at Noah’s hand and sees that his hand now looks fine. There is still a wound and blood, but the infection appears to have disappeared. They are in shock, so is the rest of the group that now see’s what has happened]
Shane
How...the...hell?
Rick
You... how did you!?--
Ali
Noah?
Noah
*Sits up and sees that everyone is staring at him. He stands up and then looks at his hand. He closes his eyes and puts his head down. He then looks up and looks at everyone* I-I can explain.
Jim
*Pops up* How did he?
Amy
His hand, it’s...normal.
Andrea
That’s impossible.
Dale
This can’t be possible, can it?
Lori
*Finally say’s it* How are you not infected?
Noah
*Walks toward the center of the group* Because- *his eyes start watering* Because I can’t...
T-Dog
Can’t what?
Rick
*Puts his hands on Noah’s shoulders* Noah...?
Noah
*He looks back at Rick, and see’s that he is concerned. That makes him finally brake down* I--I’m immune!
[The group goes into an uproar. They can’t believe it, they didn’t think immunity was possible. They are all saying different things. Shane Comes up behind Noah and grabs him]
Shane
What do you mean your immune!?! That’s impossible, so far anyone that gets bit by one of those things turns into one of those damn things!
Noah
I can explain--*Shane looks at him with anger, and this causes Noah to fall apart. This was what he was afraid would happen*
Rick
Shane! *Grabs Shane by his shoulder. Shane then lets his group go and Noah falls to the ground crying* Please, Noah... tell us.

Noah
*Looks at Rick who, unlike Shane, looks more worried and concerned, than angry. This helps him to calm down and he finally pulls himself together* Okay.
Atlanta-survivors camp: Inside Dales Rv
[Noah is sitting on the bed he lied on before, his hand has been bandaged up now. Ali is sitting next to him and Rick is sitting on the other side. Sophia and Carl are sitting in the front seats, While the rest are scattered about the RV. They are all still on edge, but they are waiting for Noah to explain to them what is going on with him]
Noah
*He looks around and then Takes Ali’s hand* Ali, I never thought I would have to tell you, but I guess now I have no choice. *Ali looks confused* But...mom’s not exactly who she said she was.
Ali
*Confused* What are you talking about?
Noah
Mom doesn’t work for a company in Louisville. *Ali is now getting confused and worried of what’s coming next* She’s the lead scientist for a branch of the government’s Anti-Biological and Chemical Warfare division.
Ali
WHAT!?!
[The group starts talking randomly]
Rick
Your telling me that Laura worked for the government?
Shane
That can’t be, no offense but I don’t see her as some sorta “agent”-

Noah
She wasn’t an agent, she was a scientist... their best one, but that doesn’t matter right now. *the group refocuses on Noah*
Noah
*Takes a deep sigh* I was 15...(We can see images of the story)I woke up late one night, I couldn’t seem to go to sleep. I decided to go get something to drink, and on the way there, I past by mom’s room, and it's usually quiet because she's never home because of work... same thing with dad. That night, however, I heard her talking on the phone in her room. I heard her say:
Laura
I know we’re running out of time, but I just don’t know anyone who would agree to do it...I doubt I’ll find anyone that will willingly let their child be a subject in a experiment like this...I KNOW because if you asked me I would say no...For the last time Sam I’m NOT letting you use my son! Didn’t you hear me when I said--
Noah (younger)
Not letting be used for what?
Noah (Present)
*Deep sigh* After she realized I had heard everything... she just told me. She said that she figured I would figure it out anyway then.
Carol
I can’t believe someone could live a lie like that so easily.
Noah
*huff* She told me it killed her everyday, not being able to tell us.
T-Dog
So... what was this “experiment” of hers?

Rick
*Noah doesn’t speak, he’s in a dead pause. Rick then places his hand on Noah’s injured hand* Noah?
Noah
*Looks at Rick and then looks around at the rest of the group* She...she said that the government intercepted some sorta delivery this “terrorist” cell was making. It was some sort of... virus. She said that if it had been released it would have killed hundreds of millions of people. She told me that their original plan was to destroy it... but of course the higher ups had other ideas for it.
Jonah
*Puts everything together* You don’t mean-
Noah
*Looks at Jonah* They Top scientist’s decided to “re-make” the virus. So that they could use it against them. However, what they made didn’t work the way they meant.
Shane
No...
Noah
They ended up creating a contagion that turned people...into those things.
[The entire group goes off. They are all yelling different things]
Jim
They WHAT!?
T-Dog
Your kidding right?
Jaqui
You mean that THEY did this?

Noah
*Stands up* NO! *everyone goes quiet* Let me finish. *Everyone calms down a little*
Noah
The heads of the experiment deemed this thing too dangerous to use, so they decided to not use it... in a sense.
Dale
Define “in a sense”.
Noah
They agreed they wouldn’t USE it, but they also agreed that they needed to make a cure, just in case it somehow got out.
Lori
You mean they made a cure!? Does it work!?
Noah
*Sits back down and a look of shame/regret crosses his face* In a sense. *The group looks confused* They DID make a cure for it, but their was a catch.
Dale
*snort* Of course.
Noah
That’s where the experiment came in. They needed a control group of a wide range of “subjects” to see how it worked on different people. They did it by age groups, because she said they needed to test it on the different stages of the immune system. They had them all, from 90 to *pause* 5 years old. *The group looks shocked and in disbelief* Yeah, they only need a teenage subject... and that ended up being me.

Ali
Noah...
Noah
Mom was completely against me being a part of it. She said that they had no idea how it would turn out, and that if anyone became “infected” they had permission to... terminate them. I told her I didn’t care.
Shane
What? What do you mean you didn’t-- *goes to Noah and gets on his knees and looks Noah in the face* How could you not care if this thing could get you killed!?
Noah
*Smiles* Because... I wanted to make her happy. *Everyone looks confused and somewhat shocked* That’s the only thing I’ve ever been able to do right; make other people happy, even if it made it hard for me to do the things I needed, or even if it got me hurt. I just thought, if I can make someone happy, then I’m doing something right.
Shane
Noah...
Noah
Anyway, my mother eventually came to the point where she was out of options. She asked me if i was really sure, that this could end up being my death. I told if it helped her I had no regrets doing it. *Everyone looks somewhat filled with pity and understanding* I had to be blind-folded the entire ride, and when we finally got there... the first thing I saw was this man in front of me. He told me that I was gonna help make America “safer for everyone”. Next thing I know, they put me in this white room and sat me in a chair. My mother told me she had to watch from the observation room, but she would be there if anything went wrong.
Noah
Then, the man came back with this needle. He took my arm and told me it might sting a little. *scoff* I think he actually liked it. Then he just ran out of the room and locked the door, I tried to get up and say something... but the next thing I know I just felt this searing pain shoot throughout my body. I fell over and just starting screaming. I felt like everything inside of me was being eaten, slowly and painfully. *Some of the group seem grossed out* I kept screaming for help, that I was dying and I wanted my mother. I think it went on for *shakes his head in thought* 15 minutes?
Jonah
What?
Lori
Sweetie...
T-Dog
Those bastards just sat and watched you squirm that whole time!
Ali
I can’t believe this, why would mom just let them do that to you?
Noah
I volunteered Ali, she tried to talk me out of it several times. Once it started, I doubt there was anything she could’ve done.
Rick
*Still is in disbelief, but wants to hear the rest* Then what?
Noah
...Nothing.
Shane
What?
Noah
It just...stopped, I was in complete pain, but then out of nowhere it just stopped. The man and my mom rushed in the room. She got on her knees and checked on me, but the man was just smiling. He said “Well, at least we have one success.”
Amy
Wait, “one success”? But I thought you said they had--*Andrea puts her hands on Amy’s shoulders and looks at her sadly, confirming what Amy was thinking*
Noah
*Looks around* 50 people went into that experiment... I was the only one who survived.
[The group is shocked, they can’t believe that this “cure” only worked on one person. This made some of them curious while it obviously diminished the hopes of others]
Glenn
So wait-- Your telling us that this cure that GOVERNMENT scientists made only worked on you!? How’s that possible!?!
Noah
I really don’t know... they told me that, for some reason, my body didn’t fight the virus back, it adjusted to it. They said it just accepted the virus and then just adapted it so that I was permanently immune to any future infection. But thats not the worst part. *Everyone looks confused/worried of what he means* They needed to make sure that it worked “completely”. So then they put me in a room...with one of them. *the group is in disbelief* It was chained up, so it couldn’t attack me. Then they told me... to let it bite me.
Shane
They WHAT!?
Noah
They said it was the only way to see if it worked. So, I walked up to it, stuck out my arm and *squirms*. It was horrible, and it wouldn’t let me go. Then someone burst through, and shot it in the head. Then out of nowhere, I started doing what I just got through doing. And just like before, the pain came and then just went away. I saw my hand and the only thing wrong with it was that it had a bite mark, the infection just disappeared. And when I didn’t die, they told me it was a official success. Then mom cleaned my hand up, and hugged me. She told me she was sorry, she shouldn’t have let me do this. I told her that it worked, I’m fine and everyones... happy. *Everyone looks sad for Noah*
Ali
Why... Why would you think that would make anyone happy?
Noah
Because if it worked then she wouldn’t have been responsible for the whole thing. She would be able to say it worked. I... didn’t care if I died.
Ali
How can you say that? How could you think that this would help anything if you died? Did you ever think how it would affect me or dad?
Noah
Of course I--
Ali
Noah, how can you sit there and say this and think I’ll just understand. *cries*

Noah
*Takes her hand* Because I didn’t want anything to happen to you. *she looks up* If that thing had got out, it would have killed a lot of people, and I didn’t want that to be you *Looks at Shane, Rick and Lori* or any of you, *looks at everyone* everyone, I felt that if it worked, I would have finally done something to be proud of. *she hugs him, she is still crying a little but she’s also happy knowing the whole reason behind his story*
Glenn
So... this cure, I get the feeling that it’s not being held some where we can just walk in, take it, and waltz back out?
Noah
No, they destroyed it. They thought that since it only worked on me that the cure would probably do just as much harm as the actual virus.
T-dog
Great, more good news.
Noah
I’m sorry, I hope you guys aren’t completely angry with me.
Rick
We’re not angry Noah.
Lori
We were just concerned, we didn’t know if this was gonna be more harm to you and the rest of us, then it would have been good.
T-Dog
Yeah man, the way I see it it’s kinda a good thing. That way we won’t have to worry ‘bout you if you get nabbed again.
Noah
*Smiles and speaks sarcastically* Oh thanks T, that’s very reassuring.
[The group shares a slight smile and laugh. They are all just glad that this isn’t gonna give them any future troubles. Shane walks to Noah and gets down]
Shane
Your still gonna have to learn how to defend yourself though. You up for it?
Noah
*looks at Ali and see’s that she’s smiling and happy again. He looks around to see that everyone is now looking at him with support then uncertainty, and he smiles* I’ll do my best!
