Breaking Curfew – Adriana Chechik – Sadie Pop322
Teen Girls Taken by Pervert After Staying Out Past Curfew
The scene opens on two friends, as they drive down a dark residential street. Inside the car, they arelistening to music and reminiscing about the party they just left. As they turn off the main road and down a long quiet street, the one in the passenger seat, Amanda, tells her friend to turn off the music and dim the headlights. She doesn’t want her parents to catch her coming home after curfew. When they arrive at the house, Amanda gets out of the car. Her friend asks if she wants her to wait until she gets inside but Amanda shoos her off, not wanting the car to attract attention. She’ll just sneak in the back door as usual. Her friend drives off. When Amanda goes around to the back, she is surprised to discover it locked. She walks back around to the front. There’s a note pinned on the door from her parents. It reads: Mandy: We told you not to break your curfew again! If the only way you’ll learn is to spend the night locked out then so be it. Mom & Dad. Amanda swears to herself and tries to open the door anyway. It’s locked. She goes under the mat for the spare key. It’s gone. Looking out into the night, she swears to herself again and slowly walks back to the street. Her friend is long gone by now. She pulls her phone out but it’s dead. The only choice she has is to walk back to the main road and try to find a payphone. As she walks, she begins to feel uncomfortable. It feels like someone else is on the road. She keeps turning around and staring into the darkness. But she sees nothing. Finally, the anxiety makes her stop. She can definitely hear someone this time. She slowly turns around … her fists clenched. Stay back, she threatens, I have mace! The night is still and silent. Breathing hard, she turns back and starts walking again. Just as she begins to let her guard down, someone approaches from behind. She is spun around and her eyes go wide.
