Well I already like this town mom
I just hope we can make Shawns life better in this place
Someone coughs as we see the shadow raising, it is Shawn, but we still not able to see him
As they approach the end of the street they see a car park up front of a empty lot and a guy removing a for sale sign from it
He notices the van, puts the sign inside his truck and walks towards the van
Marla rolls her window down as Pete (the guy) approaches her while someone comes storming out of the van through the other side
Shawn, were you going?
I get him mom
Billy runs to get his brother
Im sorry sir
Oh no problem, who was that?
It was my son, he does not do well with new people plus it has been a long trip for him
Ok anyway my name is Pete and I guess you are Marla. This is your site and is ready for you guys to start construction when you guys are ready. I just need for you to sign this document and Ill be on my way
She signs the documents as the camera moves up towards the woods were we see on a very fast pace someone running while someone else is running behind. We not able to see either person, we just hear the steps and breathing.
INT TOWN HOTEL LATER
As Gloria enters the convention room, full of people, someone approaches her quickly; it is the Director of the convention
Can I help you?
My name is Gloria from Amherst News, where we going to set up
Oh Im so sorry, they probably did not tell you but this year we will not have the press, it will be a close convention with reports from us to the outside only by phone or by appointments set up by me and only me
Thats suck, I mean I set up my day for this crap, we suppose to be the safest town in America and I can even report on a safety first convention. What a bunch of crap
She walks away
Lets go Steve, I guess is not safe to be here
No media allow

Patrick seems to be upset as he is sitting on a bench just outside the hotel while talking on the celphone with his wife
Patrick (on the phone)

Well we have to go back to close the deal on the other house. Today is the 19th, Friday so we will be back on the 22nd, Monday, then we should be ok
What about the boys?
Well I get a tent and some field equipment from the office so they can stay at the house site until Monday when we come back. It will be good for Shawn, specially
Ok Im going to leave a note for Billy, he went to get Shaw into the woods so they going to have to wait for us here

Gloria walks by Patrick as he looks again, this time she will look at him
Excuse me, can I ask you a question?

I know there is a river out there in the woods and there is a store to the right of the corner of this block. Five minutes from here
Thats sucks what about Shawn?
You have to take care of him ok
They begin to unpack the stuff for the boys while Shawn again gets out and wonders into the woods
Moments later in the woods, near the river
River sound as someone dove into it; its Clara as she swims naked while Shawn approaches wearing Billys jacket and nothing else
Shaw sees Clara and she acts like someone is watching
She looks around and Shawn disappears into the woods
It probably was a damn animal
Back at the house site moments later
The tent is set up as Shawn comes back and rapidly gets inside
Billy opens the tent
Damn did you see a ghost or something?
He closes it back
Well I guess this is it, we got money, place to sleep, I guess we will be all right.
He looks on his watch
Damn is almost four already, I tell you what, why I dont go with you guys so you can drop me off by the store to get some food and I walk back
You think Shawn will be ok?
He will be ok; Ill see you guys Monday
He walks to the van and start it while waiting for his wife Marla
Let me see Shawn real quickly
She walks into the tent and in seconds the inside of it gets very bright for a few seconds
Finally she comes out as Billy is walking in with the last couple of bags
Let me put this inside and Ill be over
Marla gets in the van as the camera moves away from there, flys over the city and ends outside the city hall building while people walk by as well as entering and coming out of the building
INT CITY HALL BUILDING LATER
Assembly of the city officials is in effect at this moment. The governor, Glen Mack, and his aids are among the presents to discuss what will be done upon the convention is finish.
Police chief stands up
Ok ladies and gentlemen, lets get this started. If everything goes well and it better be ok, we will be the safest town to live in America, which means recognition by others, tourism and money from the USA government. As far as my department, the police, there is no major cases to worry about it so we need to know if any one knows anything that we need to know or be prepared just in case they know something, this is very important.
Fire marshal stands
Nothing to report from the fire department
For the next few moments other government official will stand and report the same, no reports or news
