I don’t want you to get hurt.
He can’t hurt me if he’s dead.
Paden looks at her with growing appreciation. A light is coming back into his face. A smile slowly grows on his lips, mirroring hers.

Phoebe leads them into the dimly-lit room and goes to her knees beside Rae, who lies wounded on the floor. Rae is semi-conscious and moaning. Stella stoops to examine her wound.
She sprung her brother… all by herself! And this is what happened… He brought her here.

Pick her up.
Phoebe hurries out. Paden kneels next to Stella.
I’ve got a place to hide her.
You better get in there with her until this thing is over.
INT. CAVE – NIGHT
