Through the windows of the house, you can see a sleeping lump in a large bed. You watch it sleep for a few moments before you can see the house in all of its glory. It's large and visibly two stories. Iron gates surround it, protecting the pool and garden in the back. Glass BREAKS in the distance. You can see the broken glass on the ground from the side door, but no sign of anyone breaking in.

INT. Sasha's bedroom — night

custard - on 01/03/2009

SASHA is lying in a large bed, snoring faintly. The room is large and there are double doors, probably leading to the closet, next to a single door, probably leading to a bathroom. The floor is unnatural clean, the shelves dust-free and decked with neat stuffed animals, and not a single thing actually suited to a person's personal taste. It is lifeless and looks as if not an actual person lives here.

Sasha rolls over and you can see her young face--tan and draped with dark cascading hair. She snores louder. A door SLAMS shut. Her eyes shoot open.

Her breath becomes heavy and labored. Another door slams. She jerks out of bed, slipping her feet into slippers. She pulls a robe around her pajamas, walking out into the hallway.

HALLWAY

She looks around and slinks to her parents'. The door is slightly ajar and her breath echoes faster through the larger halls. She pushes the door open with one hand and peers in. The shapes of her parents in their bed making her sigh in relief. She turns to go back to the hallway, but pause. She looks back in. The window is broken.

SASHA'S PARENTS' BEDROOM

Sasha

(whispering) Mom? Dad?

There is no answer to her calls. She takes a few steps towards them, shaking. She stops at the bedside--the side her mom sleeps on.

Sasha (CONT'D)

Hey . . . Guys? Are--are you awake?

Silence. She sighs shakily and she runs a hand through her hair. She looks back to her parents, obviously scared. Extremely slowly, her hands reach the edge of the blanket that covered their heads. She takes a deep breath and yanks it off the bed. A male and a female, her parents, lie in the bed with their throats freshly slit and blood oozing from it. Sasha screams, tears on their way.

Sasha

(sobbing) Oh, God! Oh, my God! Mom! Dad!

Sasha turns to the bedside table next to her and frantically pulls the phone to her ear. She dials hastily, still sobbing and clutching herself, as if to hold herself together.
