Favourite scene I wrote

INT. SOMEWHERE IN THE BUNKER

While Agimi is walking he hears and feels a small breeze of air. 

Agimi looks around with the flashlight. 

He sees the Airshaft space in the ceiling. 

AGIMI

Afërdita! 

Afërdita runs to him. 

As soon as she arrives, Agimi puts his hands together. 

AGIMI (CONT’D) 

Try to climb! 

Afërdita tries to climb but the height is not enough. They lose balance quickly and they fall. 

Afërdita gets up first followed by Agim. 

AGIMI (CONT’D)

One more time! 

Agimi lifts her. Her hands touch the space. Agimi is holding her with his hands. 

Aferdita feels the air go through her face and sees a small ray of light. 

AFERDITA 

Help me, I need more height! 

Agimi whose hands are shaking because of the weight tries to lift her more. He can’t keep the weight anymore. Afërdita falls. And hurts her leg. 

Agimi tries to help her. He stays in from of her not knowing what to do. 

Agimi runs to the emergency box, near the electric one!
