The Motel Murders - Part 1
Deadjack awoke with a start. He was tied to a bed. His vision was still blurry. His vision was slowly coming back and he looked around the room an at his restraints. It was a very basic room. The curtains are closed and the lights were on the dimmest setting. Of to the side was what he assumed was a bathroom. Sat in a chair in the corner was a hooded figure wielding a giant, bloody knife. "Who the hell are you?" Jack asked from the bed. The figure just sat their playing with his knife. DeadJack started to scream for help. The figure stood up, walked over to the bed, grabbed some tape and put it over Deadjack's mouth. He then hit Deadjack in the face, causing his nose to break and blood started to stream down his face. The figure pointed the knife at him. "You deserved that." The figure walked over to the door. "You better stay quiet. I have other guests to deal with." The hooded figure opened the door and left. Deadjack, still bleeding, looked around to see if there was any way to escape. He then noticed that his wrist wasn't tied tight. He used his fingers to loosen the knot and side his hand out. He then started to undo his other arm, freeing it, and then higs legs. He got up, walked over to the bathroom, grabbed some toilet roll, and put some up his nose to stop the bleeding. He suddenly thought "What did he mean by other guests in the motel. Am I at a motel?" He walked over to the curtain and peaked outside. Sure enough, he was in a motel. It was dark outside with hardly any light shining through. Deadjack tried the door. It was unlocked. He slowly opened the door. "And cut!" came a voice. Suddenly lights shone everywhere. Deadjack took the tissue out of his nose. "How was that?" he asked. A man walked into the motel from the studio floor. "Absolutely perfect my dear boy. With any luck we should have this movie filmed in the next few days." Deadjack walked onto the studio floor just as the hooded figure took of his hood. "Ah, that's better," he said. Liam took a sip of some water. "Great take Liam. Next time, try not to actually hit me," Deadjack joked. Liam laughed. Deadjack walked over to the studio door and stepped outside. He walked across the roadway and into his trailer. He was closely followed by his assistant, Alice. "Deadjack, that was such a great take. Studio 13 will make a lot of money from The Motel. But you can't rest. You are needed back on set. Its time for you murder scene," she explained to him, throwing him some water. Deadjack turned around and left his trailer and walked back into Studio 13. Towards the back of the studio was the set for the murder scene. It was a replica of the bathroom set from earlier, just bloodier. There was a crowd at the set when Deadjack arrived. He pushed his way through the crowd to see that the bathtub already had a body in it. Liam was lying in the bathtub, his throat slashed!
