Lock The Door



Page Count: 



Age Rating:

When intruders threaten their lives, a mother and son argue how to defend themselves, until circumstances force them to fight for survival.

14-year-old Tyson and Demie his mother hide from intruders in an unlit attic room. Demie tells Tyson to lock the door, but he can't. He has a phobia about being trapped, and tries to get her to hide in a big wooden chest. He finds a baseball bat in it. They eventually open the jammed sash window to get onto the outside fire escape, but one intruder is already coming up it. They retreat inside and shut the window, but a second intruder thuds up the attic stairs, and the door's not locked. They're trapped! Demie pushes Tyson to the middle of the room, grabs the bat and flattens herself on the wall by the door. The intruder rushes in. Tyson screams. Demie knocks the intruder out. He falls, but now the first intruder smashes the window and is climbing in. Demie pulls Tyson out of the room and slams the door. He locks it from outside, and the two of them clatter down the attic stairs.

The Writer: Fiona Faith Ross

FADE IN. So, CJ asks... Where your passion lies. Your journey so far. Where you want to go. What makes you special? What you’re working on. It's a kick up the ***. Five times. Got me thinking. Writing a bio is crap, mostly, anyway. I don't think writers should write their own bios. There are PR people to do that, but since this is my own work, I'll try to squash the inner doubt ( why am I even doing this? ) and get a firmer grip on my sanity. 'It's not me, it's you.' I remember the tender age I moved up to Middle School. Even then I suspected the world had gone mad. I knew it wasn't me. Many years later I see I was right. The proof is everywhere we look, but who wants to keep company with... Go to bio
