No. It'll be fine.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012 2 versions.

Uh, I'd like to start the interview. If you wouldn't mind. I'm, uh, kind of needed back at the office soon. Big break and all that.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012 2 versions.

He chuckles nervously.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

Arina puts down the cup she was holding and wipes her hand on her dress.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

aRINA

Uh, Yes. Yes. Just a moment. I'll get him.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

Arina leaves the kitchen and goes up the first few steps on a flight of stairs. We can only see her legs, the rest of her is covered.

(sHOUTING) Arina

Jake? Charlie's here to see you. You know, the reporter.

mattblake94 - on 05/25/2012 2 versions.

Arina starts to come down with an injured middle aged man. He has on an old jacket with his medals on it. He is of middle height and has the dark hair. He has a beard and a moustache and is lean, but also strong (although we can't see muscles, we can recognise he is strong). We can't see his injury, but he hobbles down the stairs like an old man. She helps him down the stairs as he struggles. His name is Jake Turner

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012 4 versions.

aRINA

Ok, come on, I'll help you down.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

Charlie is standing in the doorway of the kitchen, in awe at the man hobbling across the floor towards the living room.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012 2 versions.

Arina helps Jake towards the living room door, through it, into the living room and then into an armchair.

Charlie follows, still in awe. When Jake sits down, Arina looks at Charlie.

mattblake94 - on 05/25/2012 3 versions.

Charlie

Oh, right. The interview. Yeah.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012 2 versions.

Charlie takes his backpack off and rummages through it. He comes out with a tape recorder. He bends down and kneels in front of Jake.

mattblake94 - on 05/25/2012 2 versions.

Charlie (CONT'D)

O.K. Mr Turner. I'm going to ask you a few questions, so if you wouldn't mind answering them, I'd be most grateful. I have plenty of spare tapes and batteries so don't worry about pausing or anything like that. And if this is getting too much for you, just tell me and I'll stop. O.K?

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012 2 versions.

Charlie fumbles with the recorder, and then turns it on.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

Jake sits in his seat for a few seconds, then starts talking. He has a rather plain and normal voice, there is not much that distinguishes him out.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012 2 versions.

Jake

Arina, could you get me a cup of water please?

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

Arina gets the cup of water.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

Jake (CONT'D)

Thank you.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

Jake drinks the water, gives the cup back to Arina, sits back in his chair and closes his eyes. He stays like this for a while. Charlie starts to shake his head and looks despondent, feeling like the interview is slipping away from him.

mattblake94 - on 05/25/2012 3 versions.

After a long pause, Jake opens his eyes and struggles, but succedes in leaning forwards.

mattblake94 - on 05/25/2012 2 versions.

Jake (CONT'D)

Do you know what it's like to lose a brother?

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

He pauses.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

Jake (CONT'D)

A friend?

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

Charlie looks baffled. He looks at Arina. And then back at Jake, pointing at himself.

mattblake94 - on 05/25/2012 2 versions.

Charlie

Me? Uh, No. No I don't.

mattblake94 - on 05/24/2012

We see a young man run and take up a position close to us, he then puts the stock of his semi automatic gun in the crock of his shoulder and starts firing. He has a beard, and a moustache and is wearing full battledress. He is Jake Turner when he was younger, and as a soldier.
