The story so far:
The Beast has been bitten by a snake and also accidentally stabbed himself.
Bloody hell I’m dying!
Where‘s the snake, Is it dead?
It serves him right, the little bastard.
Can I go to clean myself up Mr. Wolf-man?
BEAST: (sitting on a log)
You can go to hell for all I care.
David, you may be in danger. That snake could be dangerous?
It will be OK. Don’t forget, I have the ability to make myself invisible so the poison won’t hurt me.
Is this lunatic for real?
He is sick. Please have some charity?
If I had some ammo I would blow his legs off, the crazy bastard.
I feel unwell.
You look unwell, why don’t you go and sit down in the river, you shitty arse.
MARY: (to stranger)
Are you drunk?
You are in charge of a vehicle, that’s what?
You talk to me of laws when we have a raving psychopath in our midst?
BEAST: (Creeps up behind and stabs the stranger in the backside)
Argh! You bastard, I’ll kill you.
Stand back or I’ll stab you again!
My God, is it bad?
He stabbed me in the arsehole! I’m going to shove that mask down his throat.
You’ll have to find me first because as from this moment I am the-Shadow.
You dumb bastard, I ‘m going to break your neck!
Calm down and let me look at your bottom.
I’m maimed for life. Let me at the little shit, I’ll kill him.
BEAST: (Runs off into the wood)
I’ll be back, you are all doomed.
We can now get back to town in the truck, will it drive without tires?
STRANGER: (Feeling his scrotum)
My truck will be ruined when we get to town. I was going to buy some equipment for my farm.
Now look at me! I have been mutilated by that psychopath out there. Where’s my wallet?
That bloody bastard has stolen my wallet.
Are you sure, we don’t want to jump to conclusions.
I’ll jump on his head never mind anything else.
Has everyone forgotten about me? I am really starting to seize up!
STRANGER: (Looking around)
Who the hell is bothered about you? Why don’t you go and jump off a cliff you smelly bastard.
Where’s my gun? That bastard has also stolen my shotgun!
Well at least he won’t hurt anyone with it. There is no ammo right?
Now I have you all at my mercy. The stranger is wounded, Mary is unable to walk and Gerald is stuck fast in his own shit. I am going to enjoy making you all pay for the hurt and humiliation you have shown me. Don’t forget I am now the Shadow and can endure anything.
(They hear an explosion in the nearby thicket)
Can anyone help me, I just shot myself!
What a complete fool.
I’m beginning to feel ill.
To be continued.
