Overview

Grunwald Magnusson was always a lonely person, ever since childhood where he struggled to understand people. People were his antagonists. People were always interfering in his life. Why did his father give him this ridiculous name and leave him when he was only five years old? Only his father could tell him what to do with his life. He left him a coded message which took Grun months to decipher. The message was locked in a cabinet under the mirror which Grun was always frightened to look into. It had runic symbols running around it. His mother had given Grun the key when he turned twenty one. Grun had found another key in the cabinet and a letter. The letter was from his father. It said he must begin the quest? After much work Grun finally managed to find the hidden box. Why didn’t his mother know anything about it, or anything relevant about his father? All she said was she was told by Grun’s father never to sell the house and to give him the key.

Grun was on the threshold of something which would alter his life forever.  The box which was buried in the outhouse under the floor contained an assortment of things. It would take Grun three years to even begin to understand them. The main thing was the book.

After another three months of decoding he found the second letter hidden behind the fitted bookshelf. The letter said that he should stand in front of the mirror at a certain time and he would be given certain powers!

The time was the spring equinox. Grun stood in front of the mirror at twelve o clock. He meditated for several minutes with his eyes closed. When he opened them he could see a man writing a message on the inside of the mirror. He knew this man to be his father.

Grun had copied the message which remained for ten minutes after his father disappeared. Grun was disappointed at not being able to talk with his father but he knew that his father had Grun’s welfare at heart. Grun started to practice the exercises which were given him. The details are too secret to reveal here.

Scene Thirty Four: Grun’s house

Captain Smyth:

Sergeant Major, make sure the concrete is exactly the right proportions and that it is the right mix.

Sergeant Major Baker:

Yes, Sir, I already checked it.

Captain Smyth:

We have got to get this right, there must be no slip-ups.

Colonel Peters: (arrives at the scene)

I have just come from HQ, everyone is in a flap. Is everything going to plan?

Captain Smyth:

Yes, sir, everything is moving along nicely. The only thing we don’t know is the proportions of the explosives.

Colonel Peters:

I have just been informed that the explosive is going to be placed in a revolutionary new device known as a Blast-Holder; it will stop any side blast accidents.

Captain Smyth:

But that will probably blow the house to smithereens. I thought they wanted to examine the insides.

Colonel Peters:

I said the same thing, but they said they wanted whole thing to be over and done. Magnusson must be got rid of; he is being looked on as some sort of hero. I’ve never known such press coverage. The Bomb Squad is coming along later to check everything, so make sure things are as they should be.

Captain Smyth:

Yes, sir. Magnusson won’t know what hit him.

Scene Thirty Five: Cafe

Grun is sitting at a table and thinking about what he is going to do next. He looks in astonishment as Anna Godfrey walks up to him.

Anna:

I knew you would be here, I had a dream about you, it said I must meet you here and apologize.

Grun:

You know you did great damage by betraying me; things would have happened differently if you had realized that the relic key is the only thing that will stop the dragon. Now two hundred and seventy three people are dead.

Anna:

I know, I would do anything to put things right.

Grun;

There is nothing you can do. The relic is going to be moved to New York.

Anna:

How do you know that?

Grun:

I have inside information.

Anna:

Then you don’t need me.

Grun:

Not unless you can swap the relic for a substitute one which has no chip in it.

Anna:

No, but you could.

Grun;

How?

Anna:

I know you have the power of invisibility; I was told in the dream. I could let you in the room where the relic is and you could take it. You would have to take the chip out of it and put it in a substitute relic which is in locked cabinet in the same room. The rooms are protected by sensor alarms so someone would have to disable them from the computer; I’m afraid I am no good at that sort of thing.

Grun:

I know someone who could do it, the only thing is I am worried about the relic; if they have damaged it by putting in the chip then we are going to be in big trouble; I will know when I get close to it.

Anna:

How will it be able to stop the dragon?

Grun:

I can’t tell you, I have to keep that information to myself. How is your father?

Anna:

He is better, thanks, I really am sorry about…

(Anna starts to panic as a swat team member jumps out from the side of the wall and fires a high voltage stun gun into Grun’s shoulder. Grun falls unconscious to the floor. Anna screams.

Swat Team Leader:

Bundle him up, give him the sedative and get him into the van quick, we don’t want any bystanders. OK miss, you can come too.

Scene Thirty Six: Police headquarters

Grun wakes up in the dream state, he is flat on his back surrounded by people dressed in druid robes; his father walks up to him and holds out his hand to help Grun up. Grun holds out his hand but cannot reach his father’s hand; he falls back into unconsciousness.

Grun woke up to find he was strapped onto a bench and was alone in a small room which has a large glass window facing him, he had wires attached to his head, and knew that this session was not going to be nice, he also knew that the coin was missing from his neck and that he could not influence anyone while he was alone.

Agent Forty two: (Special Branch)

He’s coming to, get ready with the camera, I want this to go right. Mr. Magnusson, I am with the Special Branch, can you hear me?

Grun;

I feel sick.

Agent Forty two:

You will feel better in a short while. I want you to tell me how you were able to stop the armed forces from gaining access to your house.

Grun:

I will tell you but I won’t tell you anything while I am like this.

Agent Forty two:

You will tell us.

Grun:

Listen to me! The explosives under my house will be detonated in exactly fifteen minutes and thirty five seconds, you can count them off; they will cause a gigantic blast which will flatten the area; there will be close to a thousand casualties. I want you to record this and if you still refuse to believe me, then God help us all. By the way, your recording devices will not function; you will have to write it down.

Agent Forty two: (looks across to his colleugue who shakes his head in agreement)

How do you know all this?

Grun:

I have been trained in these things since I was a kid.

Agent Forty two:

How can we stop the blast?

Grun:

You can’t, it is too late.

Agent Forty two:

My Colleagues think you are some sort of superman; I think you are a dangerous and calculating person capable of inventing weapons of mass destruction. The higher authorities however, want you to agree to work for them, if you will agree to stop the blast.

Grun:

I have just told you that it is too late.

Agent Forty two:

Then you will be responsible for it.

Grun;

No! You will.

Agent Forty two:

How did you manage to get out of the house?

Agent Forty two:

Grun:

I walked out.

Agent Forty two:  (to his colleague)

Do you think we should relate this info to HQ?

Colleague:

Yes but they probably won’t tell the people at the house because it might cause some sort of panic.

Agent Forty two:

Yes, I agree, I think Magnusson likes to keep the country in suspense and fear, but how he got out of the house is still a mystery. We will wait and see what happens at the house, did you record the time that he said the blast would happen?

Colleague:

Yes, there is eleven minutes and fourteen seconds to go.

Agent Forty two:

I hope the house is blown to kingdom come, but God help us if we are wrong.

Colleague:

Amen to that.

Scene Thirty Seven: House

Lieutenant Colonel Parker: (bomb squad)

Major Dorchester, make sure the detonators are all in sequence.

Major Dorchester:

Yes, sir, we are about ready to evacuate.

Everyone retreats to a safe distance, so they think. There are five and a half tons of high explosives in titanium blast holder which has been especially made to specific calculations.

If all goes well the blast will go upwards and incinerate the house. The area has been evacuated to beyond the town limits.

Lieutenant Colonel Parker and his team plus other army chiefs are in a special metal and concrete bomb proof shelter, he has received orders to detonate the bomb.

Helicopters and other aircraft are in the sky at a safe distance, so they think, from the danger area. The order is give, the blast moves upwards to the foundations and then outwards in a nuclear style way. The surrounding area is flattened to three miles in distance, the bomb shelter is reduced to rubble and the aircraft are brought down with the sonic blast. People who were sightseeing the event in the local hills surrounding the town are incinerated. Nine hundred and eighty three people are killed.

Scene Thirty Eight: Army HQ

Head of the armed services General Sir Charles Humphries:

The area around the Magnusson house is like nuclear fallout area. The town has been reduced to rubble and the surrounding district is contaminated with debris. I want to know why this happened, and I want to know who is responsible. Colonel Phillips, you have the information, please give us the reasons.

Colonel Phillips: (Intelligence Corps)

We cannot understand why the blast reacted as it did. The calculations were correct, the proportion of explosives were correct also. The blast-holder should have protected the area but it didn’t.  The area just beneath the foundations came outwards when everything should have gone upwards. The foundations are still intact and the house is the only one left standing within three miles. It is absolutely unbelievable.

General Sir Charles Humphries:

Was the proportion of explosives capable of producing that much damage on its own?

Colonel Phillips:

No, sir, there is no way that the amount of explosives used on the house was capable of creating so much damage.

General Sir Charles Humphries:

Then why did it?

Colonel Phillips:

We simply don’t know, sir.

General Sir Charles Humphries:

I want to see this Magnusson person.

Colonel Phillips:

I have already tried to get information about his whereabouts but it seems that the Special        Branch has him at some secret location.

The debate went on for a long time, but nothing was decided about the actual truth.

The same debate was happening at parliament, but no one would admit that the damage was caused by a mythical creature.

Scene Thirty Nine: Secret Location

Agent Forty two:

My God, the whole town has been destroyed.

Colleague:

He’s responsible for this; I vote we get rid of him.

Agent Forty two:

Magnusson, you will be executed for this; and I don’t mean legally.

Grun:

I will tell you all I know, but I want to get up and stretch my legs, I need to go to the toilet.

Agent Forty two:

What do you know?

Grun:

There is a key that will stop all this madness, I will show you where it is; it will turn off the force field.

Agent Forty two:

OK, but I warn you, if you even try to use any tricks my colleague will shoot you, is that understood?

Grun:

Yes.
