Emma begins to look worry, she panics.
But this is uni, people don't go home when it gets dark,
something isn't right.

Andie gives the girls a reassuring look, it makes Emma calm
down a bit.

I know, I bet someones trying to
play a prank on us.
She shouts out.

Rachel see's a shadow out of the corner of her eye.
There, I see a shadow over there,

Andie creeps towards the wall where the shadows are.
She jumps around the corner.

Andie sees movement int eh corner of her eye, suddenly one
of the shadows begins to growl, it reaches up and grabs
Andie's ankle, she screams.
What is is?
One of the shadows, it just grabbed
me, I can't get it off.
Don't be stupid, shadows can't grab
people, stop it you were starting
to freak me out.
I'm not joking guys.
Suddenly Andie is pulled to the ground, a sense of pain
crosses her face.
Oh god, it hurts.
Rachel and Emma begin to approach Andie to help, Andie
raises her hand.
Go, just go.
But, your our friend, we can't
With sorrow in her eyes Andie watches her friends start
running away, she hoped that they make it.
INT. HALLWAY. NIGHT
The girls round the corner into a hallway.
We have to go back, we can't just
We didn't have much choice.
But shes our friend.
Don't you think i know that, but if
we go back none of us will make it
out of here.
a scream echos up the hallway,the pair immediately know
their friends fate, knowing that the shadows would soon turn
their attention on them the girls begin to sprint.
INT. CHASE. HALLWAY. NIGHT
Two girls running down a hallway being chased by the
shadows, Emma starts to fall behind.
Quick they're coming.

The girls turn left into a stairwell slamming the door shut
INT. STAIRWELL. NIGHT
Will it hold?
Emma looks worried.
Irritated Rachel responds.

Irritation turns to frustration when she notices they are on
floor one of 12.
Come on we still have a ways to go
before we are out of this.
The companions begin running up the stairs.
They stop on the seventh floor to catch their breath.
God, this is going to kill me.
Suddenly the door on the the first floor smashes open and
the sounds of savage animals begins to rise up the
not if they do first, lets go.
With a new wave of adrenaline pumping through them, the
girls begin to sprint.
We're almost the...........
Rachel slips, her ankle twisted.
The noises creep closer.
Rachel shuts her eyes tight and waits for the inevitable.
Emma thinks to her self "I could just go, that way someone
makes it out, I've got to go now... No, what I'm I thinking,
shes my friend and I'm not leaving her.
A hand grabs Rachel and she expects the worst
Rachel looks up, her eyes wide in disbelief.
Emma picks Rachel up and carry's her the last few steps, the
noises now only meters behind, Emma quickly lowers Rachel to
the ground and slams the door shut, barring it with a nearby
crate. The creatures begin to bang against the door, both
Emma and Rachel hold their breaths and watch with intent,
but the door holds and they both relax.
Hows the foot?
Why did you stay.
In these dark days we need everyone
we can to survive.
Rachel's heart sinks with the logic in Emma's words.
The sun begins to rise.
and more importantly, your my
friend, and i would never leave you
Rachel's heart soars, though the circumstances were grim,
they both knew that no matter what happens they would always
have each other.
