Deja Vu

Image
We have all experienced deja vu at some time in our lives. Mostly it passes without comment, an unsettling feeling that we have already seen or remembered something familiar from our past that we experience in the present. Consider if you will the story of Simon Addams, a man of ledgers who finds his present invaded by curiously unrelated memories and encounters. He is about to find that deja vu may well have a purpose, and that some things lost are not necessarily lost forever...

Hey Simon. Know what time it is?

Simon
Oh Hell. Sorry Amaryst. I've slept in.

Amaryst
Better get your skates on. Hanson's on the warpath and we need figures stat.

Simon
What's up now?

Amaryst
A shortfall in the June balance. Accounts Receivable is down. Looks like an error but we need everyone in to find it.

Simon

Amaryst

Simon

Simon

When Helen McInerney got the call from her friend Erin it was just another summer's day in Mallard County. Having lost sight of her friends whilst on a hiking trip Erin needed help and Helen was glad to oblige. It would not be the first, or the last time that she would help her friend.

Hey Helen. Have you got Steve's cell number?

Helen
I think I've got it somewhere. Don't you have it handy?

Erin
I thought I had it in my address book but I don't. I was deleting some old contacts yesterday and must have got rid of it.

Helen
Aren't you supposed to be on a hiking trip?

Erin
I am. The club's doing the walking trails around Hewlett Dam.

Helen
Shouldn't Steve be with you then?

Erin
Not at the moment. I've been separated from the main group and just need to let Steve know where I've ended up.

Helen
He left you behind?

Erin

For your consideration is presented here the story of Charles Dupre, a man who is about to go on a journey from which he cannot escape. In life he took far more than he should. In death he is about to pay the price. It will be upon the Road that he will be confronted with his crimes and given a choice, the consequences of which may well last forever...


Judge
Charles. Awaken.

Judge
Charles. It is time.

Judge
Get off your ass Charles. Wake up!

Charles
What the Hell is this?

Charles
Where am I?

Judge
Good question Charles.

Judge
Take a moment to get your bearings. You've been asleep for a long time.

Charles
Jesus. I feel like crap.

Judge
It will take a moment to get used to your surroundings. Stretch out a bit, it'll help.

Charles
Where the Hell am I?

Judge
To answer that you must tell me what you see.

Charles
I'm in a car. There's some Thing driving it.

Charles
My God, what is it?

Charles
It's not going to hurt me is it?

Judge
No. And its not a thing.

Judge
Your driver is the Shadow. Don't try…
