The Walking Dead: Noah’s Story
Part 2

by
Jay Mills

Atlanta Survivor Camp
[Night has fallen, the group is all getting ready to either sleep or be on watch. Shane, Rick, Lori and Carl are all around the campfire having their conversation that takes place immediately after their reunion in the T.V. episode. Noah looks on smiling, he’s happy to see them all together again...all they needed were his parents and it’d be like nothing had changed, he frowns. Ali comes up behind him]
Ali
Noah?*Noah turns to see her* Me and Jonah are getting ready to go to sleep, you coming?
Noah
No, I think I’m gonna walk around and “re-introduce” myself to people, I don’t think the first one went so well. *they smile*
Ali
Okay, but promise me you’ll come to bed soon?
Noah
I promise, I promise *they hug* good night Ali *She say’s good night and walks back to their tent*.
[Noah looks around and see’s a man with his wife and daughter around their own little camp fire. He see’s the little girl and she looks sad. He decides to talk to them first. He walks over to them and smiles]
Noah
Hey guys *their silent* I...don’t think I got to properly introduce myself, I’m Noah-
Ed
Go away.
Noah
What?
Ed
you deaf freak? I said beat it.

Noah
*Noah looks confused, and slightly pissed off now, he may be a sensitive person but he doesn’t just let people treat him like crap either* Excuse me? How am I a freak?
Ed
I’d say anyone whose dumb enough to let the government use them like a freakin’ rat qualifies as a freak.
Noah
*Now he’s getting agitated, he looks at his wife and daughter and can tell their uncomfortable* I’m sorry miss, I didn’t mean to disturb--
Ed
*Stands up* I just told you, we don’t talk to freaks!
Noah
I’d like to hear that from your wife and daughter before I go anywhere.
Ed
Tell ‘em Carol.
Carol
*Looks up and is scared to say anything but she finally does* It’s um...nice to meet you.
Noah
*Smiles at her, he can tell she is worried about what this will make Ed do to her later. He then walks over and sits next to Sophia* And whats your name sweetie?
Ed
*Angry* I’m gonna tell you one last time, leave.

Sophia
*Very meekly* Sophia... my names Sophia.
Noah
*Smiles at her, he can tell Ed’s getting angry, but he’s not gonna let that stop him* Sophia, that’s a beautiful name. *She smiles a little. he then notices her stuffed animal* Oh that’s cute, where’d you get that-
Ed
*Approaches Noah and Noah stands up in defense* Okay freak, I’m done being nice.
Noah
*Scoff* Funny, I didn’t know you started.
Ed
Why you little-
Shane
Hey, what’s going on here.*Shane walks up and see’s the argument* You okay? *Noah nods, and Shane looks sternly into Ed’s eyes* Why the hell do you have another fire going? Are you trying to get us killed? *Ed looks REALLY pissed off* Put it out...now.
Ed
*Through his teeth* Fine, Carol? *Carol proceeds to put it out*
Shane
Good night ladies *looks at the ladies with a confirming smile* Noah? *motions for Noah to follow*
Shane
*After their a good distance away* If you wanna talk to those two I suggest you do it when Mr. Douche isn’t around. *Noah smiles at Shane and nods* Okay. Well I’m gonna go on watch for a bit. Anything happens...just start screaming.
[Noah nods and Shane walks off waving his hand in goodbye. Noah looks over to see a man(Jim) looking at the RV’s engine. He kinda remembers him from earlier, he walks over to him]
Noah
Hey there.
Jim
*Looks over to see Noah and closes the R.V.’s top* Oh, hey *Walks over to Noah whose standing at the edge of the dirt road in front of the camp* Can I help you?
Noah
Oh no, I was just wanting to say hi, I feel like owe everyone an apology for the little incident I caused earlier.
Jim
*Sits down at the edge of the road and looks down at the camp* Oh don’t worry about that, at least it was only one. *Noah sits next to him, and they share a slight smile. Jim looks a little uncomfortable and finally says something* So, I was wondering *Noah looks over at him* IF this virus, contagion, or what ever the hell they called it ISN’T the same thing as the thing that has affected everyone now...then where did this one come from?
Noah
*Looks down* I wish I knew-oh I’m sorry, I’m Noah.
Jim
*laughs and shakes Noah’s hand* Jim.
Noah
Well it’s nice to meet you Jim, wish it wasn’t under different reasons.

Jim
You and me both kid.
Noah
*Bumps Jim’s shoulder* So, what did you do before all this happened?
Jim
I was a auto-mechanic, worked on cars for a living. Not a big job but it helped me feed my family*His face becomes very sad and Noah now looks sad to, fearing he asked a sensitive question* I--I had a wife and two kids. They *clears his throat* They didn’t make it.
Noah
*Feels horrible* I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to--
Jim
*Pats him on the knee* No, no, it’s okay. It’s good talking about it, helps me...remember them in a way.
Noah
*Smiles* Yeah, I have sister. I’ve always looked out for her. *Chuckles* Especially from the boys, and let me tell you it’s not easy keeping guys off your sister when she’s shaped like a walking hour glass.
Jim
*Laughs* Well, at least you’ve kept her safe so far. *Noah nods but still looks worried* Noah? *Noah looks at him* I know we don’t really know each other, but if you need help for anything, just let me know okay?
Noah
*Smiles* Thanks Jim.
Jim
*Pats him on the back* Don’t mention it. *They stand back up* Now, I’m gonna go and see if Dales old bucket’s gonna stay on its legs long enough to get us anywhere.
Noah
*Smiles and waves good bye to Jim. On the way down he bumps into Amy and Andrea* Oh I’m sorry I-
Andrea
*Still a little hesitant but is trying to be trustful* Oh, it’s okay we were just on our way to bed.
Amy
*Walks up to Noah and grabs his injured hand and looks at it* Are you okay? Does it hurt?
Noah
Oh, not really. Speaking of which, I’m sorry about the scare I gave you guys earlier
Amy
*Amy smiles* It’s okay.
Andrea
*Puts her hands on Amy’s shoulders* Yeah, don’t worry about it, at least nobody got hurt *realizes what she said* Well, you know.
Noah
*Chuckles* Yeah, thanks. Well it was nice meeting you. I’m Noah.
Andrea
Andrea, and this is my little sister Amy. Good night. *walks on ahead*
Amy
*Smiles at Noah* Good night. *Noah Smiles back*
[Noah decides to finally go get some sleep, but on the way to the tent he gets caught by Glenn and T-Dog]

Glenn
Hey, Noah can you come here for a second.
Noah
Something wrong?
T-Dog
No dude, we just wanted to tell ya somthin’.
Glenn
First off, hi welcome to the group *Noah Smiles and chuckles, T-Dog just looks at Glenn to be serious* Second, we just wanted to say we really thought it was cool how you saved your sister and all that.
T-Dog
Yeah, When this shit went down a lotta my peeps just bolted on me, but you actually went into a nest of those things to get her out. You got balls dude, let me tell ya that.
Noah
Thanks, but I was just doing what I had to do. I mean... she’s my sister, you know?
Glenn
Yeah, well at least you just have ONE. more then one can be kinda painful. *Noah laughs* Anyway, if you or her need help just ask.
T-dog
Yeah man *puts his hand out and Noah shakes it, but T-Dog pulls him in and pats him on the back* Gonna have to work on your shooting though, if your gonna stay alive.
Noah
Well I guess thats why I have you guys. *Smiles* Good night. *they say good night*
[Noah makes it to his tent, but looks over at Rick and Lori’s tent. He’s happy for them, knowing that their probably just happy to be together again. He looks out to the top of the hill and see’s Shane overlooking the camp. At first he doesn’t notice, but then he see’s how Shane is looking at Rick and Lori’s tent, and he looks...upset. He doesn’t understand, but figures he’s just tired. He enters the tent and the scene fades.]
Atlanta-survivor camp, morning
[Noah walks out of the tent, wearing a different set of cloths. He looks over to see that some of the ladies(Ali included) are cleaning and ironing some of the mens cloths, his included. He yawns. He looks up at the top of the hill and see’s Jonah, Dale, and Jim stripping Glenn’s car down for parts, while Rick consoles a sad Glenn. Rick walks back down the hill and Noah walks over to him and Lori]
Lori
What do you mean your going back?
Rick
We have to go back and see if Merle’s alive, and if he is we’re gonna save him.
Noah
Who’s Merle?
Rick
A guy that was with us back in Atlanta, he got stuck handcuffed on a roof *Noah looks confused* Long story.
Lori
You can’t be serious.
[They then notice that Shane arrives with Water, but they continue their conversation]
Lori
Why are you doing this?
Rick
It’s the right thing to do, honey.

Lori
I just don’t think you should go when Carl has missed--
[The conversation is stopped when they hear Jaqui scream. They then here Carl and Sophia yelling for them. The whole group reacts to this and they start running in the direction of the screams. They finally get to Carl, Sophia, and Jaqui and see that their fine. Lori stays with Carl, while Jaqui is on the ground catching her breath. Sophia runs off to her mother. Noah checks on Carl right quickly and runs off with the rest of the guys. That’s when they see a Walker devouring a deer with arrows sticking out of it. The men slowly approach it and then attack it while Noah just stays out of their way, and then Dale finally decapitates it. They then all breathe a sigh of relief]
Dale
That’s the second one we’ve had up here now. This doesn’t make sense, they’ve never come this far up the mountain.
Jim
They must be running out of food in the city.
[They then hear rustling in the branches nearby. they move towards it while Noah is still near the corpse. Daryl then appears with his crossbow, and they all put their weapons down]
Shane
Oh, Jesus.
Daryl
Son of a bitch! The damn thing got my deer! *Walks right by Noah, practically shoving him out of the way* Damn things been ruined by this *starts kicking the Walker* stupid, filthy, ugly bastard!
Dale
Calm down, none of that’s gonna help.
Daryl
What do you know old man, why dont’cha just take you and your stupid hat and go back to “On Golden Pond”? Noah
*Get’s in between Daryl and Dale and pushes Daryl away* Why don’t you learn how to talk your elders and not be a complete ass?
Daryl
Somebody better tell new kid here he don’t know who he’s messing with. *Noah starts to say something but Dale puts his hand on Noah’s shoulder and stops him, Noah just huffs* I had been tracking this deer for several miles. *Starts pulling out the arrows* Was gonna bring it back here and make us some venison, *looks at Noah with a smirk* What’ya think new kid? Think we can cut around these parts and use the rest.
Noah
*Resisting the urge to say something bad he just smiles* It’s Noah, and no I doubt you wanna eat any part of that deer now.
Daryl
What a waste, well at least I got couple dozen of squirrels. Guess that’ll do for now.
Amy
*The head wakes back up alive, Amy sees it from a distance and looks like she’s gonna be sick* That is just... *walks off with Andrea*
Daryl
Aw, come on now, nothing to fear. *Daryl shoots it in the head and kills it. Then he takes the arrow back out* You gotta get it’s brain, you guys don’t know nothing.
[They walk back up to the R.V. and Daryl is in the front. Noah pushes his way up to Daryl, wanting to finish his conversation]

Noah
So who are YOU?
Daryl
A guy you don’t wanna mess with, a.k.a Daryl Dixon.
Noah
So is everything you say always so rude?
Daryl
Kid this is me on a good day. *Looks on at the R.V.* Merle...Merle where are you, and your ugly ass self? Got some squirrels I think you’ll like.
Shane
Daryl, we need to tell you somethin’.
Daryl
About what?
Shane
About Merle... There was a problem in Atlanta.
Daryl
*Notices the intense looks on everyone’s faces* He’s dead?
Shane
We don’t know.
Daryl
He’s either dead or not so which is it?
Rick
*Comes up from behind Daryl* Not sure how to say this so I’m just gonna say it.
Daryl
And you are...?
Rick
Rick Grimes.

Daryl
And what exactly is it you gotta tell me Mr. Rick Grimes?
Rick
Your brother almost got us killed. I ended up having to handcuff him to a piece of metal on a roof, and he’s still there.
Daryl
*Getting angry* So let me get this straight; You handcuffed my brother on a roof and LEFT HIM THERE!?!
Rick
*Looks ready to defend himself* Yes.
Noah
*Daryl throws his stuff at Rick and starts advancing towards him, but Shane knocks him to the ground. Daryl quickly pulls out his knife and re-starts his advanced towards Rick, but Noah gets in front of Rick* STOP IT!!!
Daryl
Out of my way brat I got no problem with with you yet.
Noah
Take one more step towards this man and you WILL have a problem with me!
[Daryl swings his knife and Noah dodges it. he get’s behind Daryl and swipes him from underneath his legs and knocks him to the ground. He gets on top of Daryl and pins his arms with his knees, putting the toes of his feet between the meeting of Daryl’s legs, completely pinning him. Everyone is amazed, they didn’t think he could do something like that. He takes Daryl’s knife and Drives it into the ground]
T-Dog
Where the hell did you learn to do that?

Noah
My dad taught me a few things he learned in training. *Looks Daryl in the face* Try to get out of this and I’ll be able to stop you within a second. *Daryl starts to move but then Noah pushes him back down* Told ya.
Daryl
Get the hell off of me you little-
Noah
How about instead of screaming at me you ask me like the human being you appear to be? *Daryl scoffs* Look, I can understand you being worried for your brother- I really can, but attacking your allies isn’t gonna get you anywhere but an early grave. So, *he gets up and puts his hand out for Daryl* can you at least TRY to be nice?
Daryl
*Looks really pissed, but not many people can say they have pinned him. He picks his knife out of the ground and takes Noah’s hand up* Lucky shot.
Noah
*Scoffs* It’s a start.
Rick
I was gonna tell you that the door to the roof was chained up, so he’s probably still alive, and that I’m going back to see if we can save him.
T-dog
It ain’t Ricks fault anyway *Daryl looks at him* I had the key, but I dropped it...in a drain.
Daryl
If that was meant to make me happy it didn’t work.

T-dog
You heard Rick, the door was chained up so he’s probably still alive.
Rick
Does that make you feel better?
Daryl
*His eyes start to water* To hell with ya’ll. *Sounding sad* Where is he, so I can go and get him.
Lori
Rick can take you their, right Rick? *You can tell she isn’t saying this with good intent*
Rick
*Understands Lori’s concerns, but it’s something he has to do* Yeah. *Lori just turns around and gets back in the R.V. Daryl walks off*
Shane
*Goes to Noah and pulls him aside from the group after everyone has dispersed a little, He’s not happy with the stunt Noah just pulled* So what, your a freakin’ ninja now?
Noah
What?
Shane
You could’ve gotten yourself killed. And I thought you just told us yesterday you didn’t know how to defend yourself.
Noah
*Getting kinda annoyed* Yeah, with a gun. I didn’t think hand-to-hand combat was a good way to defend myself against something that would get right back up and keep coming at me.

Shane
I’m just beginning to wonder if there’s anything else your hiding from us.
Noah
*In disbelief that Shane’s accusing him of this* You think that-- I didn’t want to hide anything. I was gonna tell you all as soon as I thought I had the right opportunity. I’m not trying to “hide” anything, I can’t believe you’d accuse me of something like that.
Shane
*Pulls Noah close* I just don’t like the fact that you keep putting yourself in harms way, how about that?
Noah
*He understands now* Oh...I’m sorry Shane, I didn’t mean to-- *Shane turns around and rubs his face in distress, Noah looks down and breaths a heavy sigh, he comes up behind him turns him around* I’m sorry, okay? I just don’t want everyone to feel like I need to be babied or protected all the time, I may not be a “Big Man” like you or the other guy’s, but I DO know how to handle myself somewhat. I just don’t really know how to use a gun.
Shane
*Looks him in the eyes* It’s not just that. *Noah looks confused and Shane looks down somewhat ashamed/embarrassed* After me and Rick joined the police force, Jerry made me and Rick promise that we’d take care of you and Ali, should anything go wrong. Me and Rick have Known Jerry since we started training, so we felt that we owed it to him. We knew that you two could be a hand full *He smirks and Noah kinda laughs* So Rick agreed to focus on Ali and I agreed to focus on you. And now that all this is going on I feel that now more then ever is when I need to make sure I don’t let your father and you down. You know I’ve... *feels weird saying it* I’ve come to think of you as if you were my own.
Noah
*Noah smiles and his eyes start watering* I feel the same way Shane... which is why I feel that I need to step up and stop being the boy that hid in the corner like I use to.
Shane
I understand Noah, but you don’t need to prove anything to me, okay?
Noah
Okay.
Shane
*Notices Rick coming out of his tent in his uniform, and Shane is not happy. He walks towards Rick. Noah looks and see’s this and is confused as to why Shane would be mad and follows behind him. Shane approaches Rick* So that’s it? Just gonna leave the rest of us here?
Rick
*Buttoning up his uniform* I’m not leaving anyone. Not you Shane, and certainly not Lori.
Shane
Why don’t you explain that to her then?
Rick
She knows.
Shane
Look, then explain it to me Rick please just-- Just help me understand? Just tell me why? Why risk your life for someone like Merle?

Daryl
*Over hears Shane* Hey, watch what you say there.
Shane
I did, that’s the nicest thing I could say. Rick that man wouldn’t give a dying man his last sip of water.
Rick
It doesn’t matter what HE would do Shane, but what I do that does. I can give him my last sip. We can’t just leave him their like some animal waiting to be slaughtered. No one should die that way, especially a person.
Lori
*Sitting with Carl* So what? Your plans to run in with Daryl? Thats all?
Glenn
*Rick looks over to Glenn and tilt’s his head over, basically showing his hope Glenn will come* *Carried out* Really, come on?
Rick
You know your way around that city better then anyone else here, you can get in and out no problem, you said so yourself. I know it’s a tough thing to ask, but I’d think we’d do a lot better with you with us, and I know *gestures to Lori* it’d make her feel better about it.
Shane
Wonderful, now your gonna risk more people?
Noah
*Comes up next to him* Shane...
Daryl
*Looks to T-Dog* You too.

T-dog
*Huff* Perfect.
Daryl
You can come too if you want. *Gestures to Noah* Maybe those things will be so impressed with your kung-fu they’ll completely ignore us. *Noah gives him a “grow up” look*
Shane
No- Absolutely not.
Noah
But, Shane if I can help I--
Shane
Didn’t we just get through talking about this? I’m not letting you go and that’s the end of it.
Noah
*Looks down in disappointment* Okay...
Daryl
My day just keep’s gettin’ better and better.
T-Dog
You see anyone else willing to go and save your punk brother?
Daryl
So why do you?
T-Dog
You wouldn’t understand, we think differently.
Dale
So there’s four.
Shane
It’s more than four. Your risking the lives of every single one of us, think about that. You saw those Walkers, they were here IN our camp. Their leaving the city we’re gonna need everyone we can get-here protecting the camp. Rick
The way I see it what we really need are more guns.
Glenn
*Remembers* That’s right!
Jonah
Wait, what guns? *Leaves the group of survivors he was standing with*
Rick
Six shotguns, two high-powered rifles, over a dozen handguns. Before I left the station I took every gun I could outta the gun cage, but I dropped it in Atlanta when those things attacked me. It’s probably still there on the street.
Shane
Ammo?
Rick
700 rounds, assorted.
Lori
I can’t believe this Rick. You show up and turn right around leave?
Carl
Please don’t go dad.
Lori
Forget about guns, your seriously gonna get yourself killed for someone like Merle Dixon? I don’t care if there is bag of guns there it’s not worth it Rick. *Her eyes start to tear up* Please, explain to me how this makes sense.
Rick
I made a promise to a man and his son *Lori is not accepting this* Lori if they hadn’t had helped me I’d be dead. I wouldn’t be standing here in front of you if not for them. They said they were coming to Atlanta too, and they’re gonna walk into the same thing I did unless I warn them.
Lori
So what’s stopping you?
Rick
The walkie-talkie I had fell in the bag, he has the other one and our plan was to call when they got closer.
Shane
The walkies we used?
Rick
Yeah.
Andrea
Then use the CB and save yourself the trip.
Shane
It’s not that, the walkies we had are old and don’t work with anything else but another one of the same kind.
Noah
*See’s that everyone is on edge and feels that he needs to resolve it* Rick, *Walks over to Rick and Lori* are you sure?
Rick
Yeah.
Noah
...Then you should go.
Lori
What!?
Noah
Think about it Lori, we’re not prepared if those things make it here in a herd. We’re gonna need something to kill them at range. If Rick say’s he can get in, get the guns and Merle, and get out then we need to have faith in him. He made it this far didn’t he?
Rick
*See’s that Lori is scared* Honey, we need it, *Looks at Carl, showing that he’s thinking of them too* please.
Lori
*Stay’s silent, but more or less acknowledges her acceptance*
Rick
*Goes and kneels down to Carl* I’ll be back okay? *Carl looks down and then back and nods his head*
Ali
*Comes up and sits next to Carl* Don’t worry Carl, your dad’s tough. He learned it from ours. *Looks up at Noah and Noah understands. He misses them too*
[Rick, Daryl, T-Dog and Glenn are preparing for their trip. Noah approaches them]
Noah
You guys gonna be okay?
Glenn
It depends on how you define okay. If it’s when going into a huge city full of walking dead people then I’m A-okay.
Noah
*Smiles* All joking aside.
T-Dog
Don’t worry about us dude, just hold down the fort, and maybe you can show me that move of yours when we get back.
Daryl
*Brushes past Noah* he got LUCKY.

Noah
*Acknowledges Daryl* Daryl? *Daryl turns around waiting for some sort of comeback* I hope you find your brother, I can relate. *Daryl pauses for a second and then walks onto the truck*
Rick
*Walks to Dale and Jim. Noah, Glenn and T-Dog follow behind him* I’ve heard you have a pair of bolt cutters?
Dale
Maybe, why?
T-dog
We need to get on the roof, and to do that we’re gonna need to cut the chain on it, plus Merle’s handcuffs.
Dale
I don’t really like letting people borrow my tools. The last time I did *looks at T-Dog* Well, your not the only one that dropped a bag out there.
Rick
Will get those too, but we’re gonna need the bolt cutters to do anything.
Noah
Come on, Dale. Think of it as an investment in a promise.
Dale
*Still unsure* Yeah, more like a gamble. *Gets them the bolt cutters* So what do I get in return?
Rick
Well what do you want?
Dale
How ‘bout one of the guns in that bag. I pick it.
Rick
Sure.
Jim
Um, Dale lets get a little more than that. *Looks at Rick* That van of yours...
Rick
Yeah.
Jim
The radiator hose in the R.V. is shot, and we won’t get anywhere very far with it like that. Now, the hose in your van will fit just fine--enough that I can make it fit.
Rick
How about this; we get back and you can strip it down to the rims.
Daryl
*Honks the van’s horn* ANY DAY NOW!!!
RIck
*Dale hands him the cutters* Thanks. *Dale smiles and nods his head*
Noah
*Runs up to Rick* Rick?
Rick
Yeah, Noah?
Noah
Your gonna make it back right?
Rick
I promise.
Noah
Don’t.
Rick
Why?
Noah
*His eyes water up* Just in case, you know--

Rick
*Takes Noah in his arm* Noah, I Will Be Back, okay? *Noah nods his head and wipes at his eyes* You help these guys take care of everyone okay? *He nods, he walks with Rick and T-Dog to the van, and they are approached by Shane*
Shane
You got any round in the Python, Rick?
Rick
No.
Shane
Well, when we were on the gun range last time, I gotta few of your loose rounds. *They share a smile, Shane looks through his bag*
Rick
You and your bag.
Shane
I don’t like this Rick, I think your making the wrong call-- I mean this is just too reckless, but if your going your taking bullets.
Rick
I don’t think shooting a gun in that city is a good idea after the last incident.
Shane
Well, that’s your call. *Pulls out four rounds* Well, ain’t that ironic. Four of you, four bullets. Hope four’s your lucky number. *Noah looks at him and then Rick, he is getting that feeling he felt last night, when he saw Shane staring at Rick and Lori’s tent*
Rick
Thanks.
Shane
No problem.
Noah
Good luck, Rick. Not that you need any. *Noah smiles, Rick just pats him on the shoulder and then goes and gets in the van.
[Daryl closes the back of the van, Glenn starts the van and they drive off as the rest of the group looks on. Lori goes back to her tent and has her talk with Carl.]
Atlanta survivor camp-The quarry
[Carl and Shane are trying to catch some frogs. Noah is with his sister and the other women, he watches Shane and Carl trying to catch frogs and laughs when Shane falls in the water and splashes around, trying to scare the frogs out]
Jaqui
*Getting water* Can someone explain to me how the women wound up doing all the Hattie McDaniel Work?
Amy
The world ended, remember?
Noah
Well, I’ll help if you tell me what to do?
Jaqui
That’s okay sweetie, but thanks for volunteering. I’m just happy you have manners, wish I could shake your mama and daddy’s hand for raising two children that actually say “Yes Sir” and “Thank you Madam” rather then sticking an I-pod in your ears. *The girls and Noah share a laugh, except for Carol who is looking back at her husband. He looks angry*
Carol
That’s just the way things are meant. *Washes cloths* I DO miss my maytag.

Andrea
I miss my Benz, my sat nav.
Jaqui
I miss my coffee maker *gets into it* with that dual-drip filter and built in grinder, honey.
Amy
Well I miss my computer, and texting.
Ali
Oh, yes girl. *They high-five*
Andrea
*Pops up* I miss my vibrator.
Noah
*All the girls giggle* *Looks grossed* Thank you Andrea, for putting that image in my head. *They all laugh and Jaqui pats Noah on the back*
Carol
*Unsure if she should say,she looks back at her husband, turns back and slightly smiles* Me too. *The entire group goes into an uproar of laughter*
Ed
*Comes up, obviously pissed* Well what’s so funny ladies?
Andrea
Oh nothing, just having some girl talk and making Noah here blush.
Noah
*Pops up* I’m NOT blushing! *Jaqui snorts and the rest hold back their laughter. Ed Walks up to the girls and Andrea looks worried. She looks at Ali and motions for her to move behind her. She looks at Noah who acknowledges her concern and readies himself for a problem*
Andrea
*Looks at Ed* Something wrong?
Ed
How ‘bout you mind your business, and focus on doing the work you should be doing, this isn’t some comedy club. *Andrea is now pissed off*
Noah
*Notices Lori coming* I’m gonna go see how Lori’s doing be right back. * he runs off to the other side of the quarry. He goes around the giant rock and lands right in front of the woods that is in front of the group of rocks where Shane and Lori are. He starts saying hi but catches them in a conversation. Lori looks mad and he feels that whatever their talking about has something to do with the weird feeling he’s been getting around them whenever their together*
Shane
Don’t take it out on Carl, Lori.
Lori
Don’t tell me what to do, Shane. You no longer have that right. *Starts walking away*
Shane
Lori, wait. We need to talk about this, we never got a chance--
Lori
No. No, no. You can’t talk to me either, wanna talk about it? Tell it to the frogs.
Shane
*Noah is getting confused, tell what to the frogs?* Lori, I don’t know how all this looks from your point of view but-- Lori
From my “point of view”? Let me tell you from my point of view then: Don’t come near me, don’t go near my son. Don’t look at him, talk to him, my family is now officialy off-limits to you.
Shane
Now I think your being too harsh, I mean-
Lori
*Walks up to him* Shane STOP IT NOW! *She gets in his face* MY HUSBAND IS BACK, HE IS ALIVE!
Noah
*Noah is shaking his head in denial. He can’t believe what he’s hearing* No...
Shane
And he’s my best friend. I’m happy he’s back to can’t you see that?
Lori
*Get’s extremely pissed off* HOW DARE YOU! WHY WOULD YOU BE HAPPPY? YOUR THE ONE WHO TOLD ME HE WAS DEAD, YOU SON OF A BITCH!!!
[Noah Turns around and covers his mouth to keep his crying from being loud. He can’t believe it. He can’t believe Shane would do such a thing. Lie to Lori about Rick’s death and then pursue a relationship her. He is crying because he too feels somewhat betrayed: The man he considers a father has done something so horrible, so dicieving, and to his own friend. He then takes his head out of his hands, and a look of anger and sadness is covered over with a blank stare. He decides he has to do something about this, he has to understand how the man he has idolized could do such a thing. He gets up and walks out of the woods towards Shane. Shane notices him*

Shane
Oh, hey buddy. *Noah just looks at him and walks past him towards the water. He bends over and washes his hands in the creek* *Looks confused, usually Noah has something to say back* Are you okay?
Noah
*Doesn’t look at Shane* I really don’t know anymore.
Shane
What do you mean?
Noah
*Takes a deep breath and Turns around* Shane, can I ask you something?
Shane
*Sits on a rock* Shoot.
Noah
*Stands in front of him* If someone took something from you that you loved, something that you would never have imagined them trying to take from you, and then they expected you to understand... would you?
Shane
*Confused* I don’t understand--
Noah
I HEARD SHANE!!!
Shane
Hear what-- *He realizes that he heard him and Lori talking* Were you listening to us?
Noah
I didn’t mean to, and I wish I never had, because now I don’t even know who you are.
Shane
Excuse me?
Noah
*Starts walking away* The Shane I knew would never have done this.
Shane
Done what?
Noah
What, WHAT? Well lets see; lie to his best friend’s wife that he was dead, and then go and sleep with her.
Shane
It’s not like that--
Noah
Yeah, of course not-
Shane
*Grabs Noah by the arm* Hey, you don’t know what happened okay? You weren’t in that hospital. I checked, but the machines went off and I-I didn’t know what to do?
Noah
*Tears are rolling down his face, but their of anger not sadness* Did you check?
Shane
Of course I--
Noah
DID...YOU...REALLY...CHECK? Did you check everything? Did you try to get him out of there?
Shane
*Pause* I...I did everything I could.
Noah
No- *Brakes away from Shane* You did everything you wanted. I don’t wanna believe it Shane I really don’t. But when you talk to me about not being honest while you’ve been hiding this from EVERYONE!? You have no right to talk to me about being honest.
Shane
Noah...*They both take a breath. Shane rubs his face while Noah wipes away his tears* Noah I’m sorry-
Noah
No don’t apologize to me and expect that to make it better. I’m not the one you should be apologizing to. *Walks away* Now I have half a mind to tell Rick everything I heard when he gets back.
Shane
*Angered by this he runs forward and gets in front of Noah* No you won’t!
Noah
*Shocked* Are you threatening me?
Shane
Of course not, it’s just-- its’s not your place to-
Noah
Shane stop. Don’t tell me where my place in this is . You made it my place when brought me into all of this. Don’t worry I’m not gonna tell Rick anything. *Walks past and stops at Shane’s ear* I shouldn’t have to. *He walks back to the other side of the quarry. Shane just stands there in thought*
Andrea
*Noah arrives back to see Andrea has had enough of Ed* How ‘bout this Ed, don’t like the way we do your laundry, then we are more than happy for you to join in and do it yourself*Tosses some of his cloths at him* Here.
Ed
*Throws it back in her face, Amy gets up and so does Ali. Noah see’s this and is appalled* Ain’t the job I’m SUPPOSE to do.
Amy
Andrea, please--
Andrea
Then WHAT are you suppose to do, Ed? Just sit on your ass and smoke the day away?
Ed
It certainly isn’t listening to some smart mouthed bitch! *Motions for Carol* Let’s go.
Andrea
*Stops Carol* No Ed, I don’t think should go anywhere with you.
Ed
And I don’t think what she does is any of your business. Come ON Carol
Carol
Please Andrea, don’t it’s okay-
Andrea
No it isn’t Carol-
Ed
Don’t think I won’t sit you down on your ass just ‘cause your some suit wearing cooze. Now come on Carol or you gonna regret it.
Noah
*Tired of hearing this he rushes up between Ed and Carol* Your not gonna do a damn thing as long as I’m here.
Ed
I’ve done told you freak *Pushes him aside* Mind your own damn business. I’ll do whatever I want to with my wife.
Jaqui
Like give her a new set of bruises. Don’t think we don’t notice them.

Ed
*Laughes* Same thing goes for you. Now y’all are really starting to piss me off so let’s go Carol. *Grabs Carol*
Carol
Ed please don’t-
Ed
You don’t tell me what yo do you ungrateful bitch! *Slaps her across the face*
Noah
THAT’S IT!!!
[Noah bum rushes Ed and knocks him to the ground. Noah readies himself, Ed gets back up and starts swinging, Noah simply dodges. He then comes up from behind and jumps on his back and puts him in a head lock. Ed throws Noah off and hurls him to the ground. Noah gets up but Ed punches him in the face sending him back down. Ali runs to Noah, as does Amy, Carol, and Jaqui]
Ali
Noah!
Ed
Don’t you dare touch me you freak!
Shane
Hey! *Ed turns and Shane punches Ed right in the face* Call that boy a freak one more time, please do I really would love to hear you say it. *Ed just covers his face. Shane Drags him off, throws him to the ground and proceeds to beat him. Ed is starting to pass out. They are all yelling for Shane to stop and that he’s had enough, but Shane continues to beat Ed up*
Noah
*Finally, before Shane can hit Ed one more time. Noah lunges at Shane’s hand and grabs it* *He is crying, from being humiliated, from the conversation he just had, from everything* Stop it Shane, please, please stop don’t do this. He’s not worth it.

Shane
*Frowns, he didn't mean to scare everyone. He brings Ed’s face in close* You put your hands on your wife, your daughter, Noah or anyone else in this camp one more time, I will not stop, no matter who begs me, got it? *Ed Doesn’t respond* GOT IT!?
Ed
*Said in a bloody whimper* Yes.
Shane
I’ll kill you Ed, I’ll *punches him* beat you to death!
Noah
Shane!
Shane
*He gets up and kicks Ed in the Stomach. He looks at Noah who’s eye is bruised, but they are covered with tears. Shane takes him in his arms and hugs him. He whispers to Noah* I’m sorry, for everything. *He lets him go and looks at the girls, they are all shocked at what just happen, Carol is crying. Shane walks off. She runs to Ed and starts Apologizing.*
Noah
*Tries to comfort Carol* Carol I’m sorry I--
Carol
*Said through tears* Please, Noah, just- just go.
Noah
*He’s sad that she is still apologizing to Ed, but understands that there’s nothing more he can do for her right now. He walks off, but Andrea stops him first*
Andrea
Noah, are you okay.
Noah
*Still crying a little* I don’t know. *Sniffs* I really...just... don’t know. *he walks off back to camp*
