Savage the Alpha Wolf, Male, Age
Diablo the Alpha Wolf, Male, Age (Savage’s Best friend.)
SETTING: In a secluded area in the woods. On the bottom of a cliff surrounded by snow and an army of pine trees.
TIME: 2:00 pm in the afternoon with overcast
AT RISE: Savage is waiting patiently for Diablo’s reconnaissance reports on Killer the Sabertooth Tiger, who runs the forest with other Sabbertooths Tigers. They plan on attacking him together so that they can live on top of the mountain in peace. Savage is waiting at the bottom of the cliff. Diablo walks by with a weird vibe
Hey wassup? Do you have my reconnaissance?
(Nervous and pauses) Yes I do
Ok…can you run them back to me?
Yeah yeah. (Stutters) um they have look out posts on the left side of the mountain, but on the right side is as clear as day
(With suspicion) Hey are you ok?
Yeah I’m just feeling a little under the weather
Savage moves objectively, but sees wolf paw prints, which is weird because only saber tooth tigers live on this side of the mountains and wolves are supposed to be on the other side. They began flanking them and Diablo comes from down the mountain/The go to the villages to gather their packs and head up the mountain. They split up and as they split, Diablo looks back with a Menacing look, which makes Savage uneasy like oh that’s weird
(Walking up the Hill) Eyes up! Stay ready; I need 2 wolves on the right side and two on the left side. I need three on the frontline
Wolf pack says “Yes Sir.” Instead of Diablo going the opposite way up the hill and flanking, he alerts Killers post and then turns back and cautiously walks down the hill while tailing Savage
(To Himself) Thinking about memories; the ups and downs Savage and me had. Struggling together. I’m almost starting to have a change of heart. But I have to go through with it. I’m doing this. I’m doing this. I’m doing this!
Diablo gives a loud howl that puts chills through the wolfs
fur which means its time for an attack
I’m sorry friend but there’s only room for one Alpha
Killer and his crew start attacking wolves fighting bravely against these large numbers of enemies until there are no wolves left. Killer wanted to take Savage one on one
After all we have been through, sleeping together because we were homeless and had not where to go. Having to hunt together. You’re going to do me like this? Well since you’re so hard and so solid, alright do it then. DO IT!!!
(Passionately) What about me? I’ve been second my whole life. I never gotten any recognition. And I’m tired of being looked at like I’m not fit for this like I’m secondary. You act like I didn’t save you when that mammoth had his hoof on your throat
It ain’t my fault. I was born like this. You think I wanted to lead a pack that don’t give a fur about me? If you want this position that I have take it. (Walking Away) I’m going lone wolf
As Savage walks away, Killer and the Sabertooth Tigers move in on Diablo and his pack
You think you’re better than me? You think you can just take the forest?
The Sabertooth Tigers start to fight back and fall. They get the best of the wolves except Diablo because Killer wants to save him last as a Trophy. Meanwhile, as Savage was walking away, he sees another pack of Sabertooth Tigers running up the Hill
I can’t let them do this to my brother. I promised his family I would protect him with my life
Savage turns around sprinting frantically up the hill to the mountain Warzone and sees Diablo. Savage gives a loud howl to assure Diablo he’s not alone
I don’t need him. All I need is my tail and my word
Diablo lunges at Killer like a frog when it jumps around on a Lilly pad but Killer quickly dodges the attack and sinks his 9-inch fangs into Diablo’s shoulder. Diablo is still putting up a great fight, but he knows how’s its going to end. He’s not going to be the winner, but still bravely fighting. Killer is now standing over Diablo as some of the other Sabertooth Tigers close in on him. Suddenly, Savage jumps in from nowhere and tackles Killer off of Diablo, wounding him enough that he is out of the fight.
You know our friendship is unbreakable. Nothing can come in between us. It’s been like that since we were cubs. Since we were both two years old hunting our first rabbit together. And ever since we’ve been stuck together like Pine Tress and sap. I couldn’t let you go out like that
Diablo tries to get up, but he is also too injured to stand. Savage comes over to help up Diablo, but sees three Sabertooth Tigers coming at them. So he stops before he makes it to Diablo because three Sabertooth Tigers block his path. Savage looks Diablo in the eye as the Sabertooth Tigers back him away
(Barely Audible) Bye
Diablo can’t hear him, but understands. He moves to salute but the Sabertooth Tigers jump him before he can respond
