Here for your consideration is the tale of Jules Verrin, a woman of considerable intelligence and one dedicated to the history and cultures of the Pacific Islands. Living on the remote island of Rapa Iti she works as part of an archeological team searching for the remnants of an ancient settlement, and in that pursuit is far from the cares or concerns of the world outside. That is until a friend intrudes upon her idyllic existence. Beyond the beaches of Rapa Iti the world is changing and she will find that some things are indeed too good to be true...

Addison
Hey Jules! How's it going down there in Paradise?

Jules
As good as it can be Adds. What's up?

Addison
Just wanted to let you know I got the job.

Jules
That's great. The one in New York?

Addison
Yeah. Not much to start but its a beginning.

Jules
Did they tell you when they'll need you?

Addison
Depends on a bit of paperwork. Probably next week.

Jules
That really is good news.

Addison
Can't start soon enough. Sure as he…

Nothing expresses a person's sense of independence more than the moment they take the keys to their first apartment. For Steve Hallows it was the culmination of three years of hard work, and as he stood in the third floor entranceway to his new home he had to admit he was rather pleased with himself. Ahead he could see only good times and freedom. Then he turned his phone on...

Biz 4.31pm
Got the keys yet?

Steve
Yeah. Picked them up this morning.

Biz
Great. When's the party?

Steve
Not for a few days.

Biz
What! Why so long?

Steve
Biz, I just spent three very long years trying to get away from you and Randle. Give me a few days to settle in.

Biz
Seems a rather snobbish attitude towards former roommates. Aren't the plebs good enough now?

Steve
:) Knocked it on the head. Don't want you soiling the furniture.

Biz
Hmm. I fear I must accept such insults graciously. Two days max then I'm sending in the boys.

Steve
I'm sure I will let you in eventually.

Biz
Need any help moving?

Consider if you will the tale of Burkhart Ransem, a man with a wide circle of friends and a career that has him fast-tracked to wealth and success. Consider also the more modest aspirations of his best friend Jackson. In need of a job Burkhart has found an opportunity for his friend, a contract that will see Jackson set also upon a path to comfort and success. All that need happen is Jackson make the appointment and do his thing. That is the plan but nothing is ever exactly as it seems...

Burkhart 2.45am
Hey Jackson. When are you getting in?

Jackson
Bit slow. ETA around 7.

Burkhart
Enjoying the bus?

Jackson
Not really. Should've taken the red-eye yesterday.

Burkhart
At least you get to enjoy the scenery. Yeh?

Jackson
Up yours. I've been on this death-trap for sixteen hours. Better be worth it.

Burkhart
Don't worry. Major cred if you get the contract. You'll owe me plenty.

Jackson
Yeh. Sure.

Burkhart
Try and get some sleep. Big day tomorrow.


Burkhart 3.00am
You awake?

Jackson
What is it?

For Maximilian Johns the night would begin like any other. Concerns about school dogged his thoughts, an upcoming project on the War of Independence only reminding him of how much he disliked History. Rather than worry too much about it however, he consoled himself with the possibility that he might be able to palm most of the work onto his friend, Benjamin. Such were his concerns, his world a small circle of friends and the never ending cycle of school life. What he could not foresee was how dangerous his world was about to become...


Max 2.07am
Benj. You up?

Max
Benj. Answer Goddamit.

Benjamin
WTH. Its 2 in the morning.

Max
Did you hear it?

Benjamin
I was asleep Max. What you talking about?

Max
The bang. Sounded like an explosion.

Benjamin
Where?

Max
South. Beyond the tracks I think.

Benjamin
U Sure? Could have been a car or something outside.

Max
No. This was big. Everything in my room shook.

Benjamin
Go back to sleep. I can't hear nothing.


Max 2.18am
Benj!

Benjamin
Geez, WTF.

Max
Can't you hear…
