We watch as 2 Section alight. We see Molly communicating with

Kinders.

MOLLY:

Where are they?

KINDERS:

Get to the hospital.

Molly?

Kinders tries to hand Molly her bag but she is too busy running

off. She breaks away from the rest of the group and hurries towards

the hospital. The rest of the group follow disconsolately.

Molly is hurrying through the hospital, clearly in a desperate

state of panic.

Jackie sees her and tries to stop her.

MOLLY:

Jackie, what's happening? Where are

they?

JACKIE:

Calm down...

Suddenly a trolley with a patient on is rushed down the corridor

and past them. Molly realises it is an unconscious James, tubes

everywhere.

MOLLY:

Boss man?

The doctors hurry past leaving Molly in an even more frantic state.

Molly looks at Jackie but Jackie just shakes her head.

MOLLY (CONT’D)

Is he gonna be alright?

JACKIE:

I've gotta go.

Molly looks devastated.

Molly looks up as another trolley is wheeled down the corridor.

It is Smurf, and although in obvious discomfort, is conscious.

His upper arm packed.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

Smurf!

SMURF:

He died in the MERT!

MOLLY:

What?

SMURF:

They had to resuscitate him twice.

We're gonna lose him.

MOLLY:

(quietly, unconvinced)

No. He's going to be alright.

SMURF:

(crying)

What have I done, what have I done?

MOLLY:

It weren't your fault.

SMURF:

No. It was you and the boss's.

MOLLY:

How come I wasn't hit, sir? When Badrai

got out of that truck firing, why wasn't

I hit? I should have been hit, not them.

I'd do anything to make sure they were

alright...I’d swap places in a flash.
