Blood. Everywhere was blood. The smell of it was overwhelming. The screams were nothing but white noise, the faces distorted and twisted in agony and fear. This was not a dream. It was a nightmare. The pain was so intense, so all-encompassing that it seemed never-ending.

And then, suddenly, it was over. Silence. A darkness so deep that it seemed to swallow everything, even the memory of the screams. The only thing left was a sense of deep sorrow, and the knowledge that something precious had been lost forever.

This was the memory that haunted Alex. It was always present in the back of her mind, a specter that never left her alone. It was the reason she had become so guarded, so careful with her heart. But she knew that no matter how hard she tried, she could never truly escape it.

Chapter 1: The Night of the Attack

Alex had been looking forward to this party for weeks. It was the event of the season, and everyone who was anyone was going to be there. She had spent hours getting ready, selecting the perfect dress, doing her hair and makeup. She felt beautiful, confident, and alive.

The party was everything she had hoped for. The music was loud, the drinks flowed freely, and everyone was having a great time. Alex danced with her friends, laughed and flirted with the boys. It was a perfect night, the kind of night that she would remember for the rest of her life.

But then it happened. One moment, she was laughing and dancing, and the next, everything was different. She felt someone grab her from behind, pulling her into the shadows. She tried to scream, but a hand was clamped over her mouth, choking her cries for help.

The attack was brutal and sudden. Alex couldn’t fight back, couldn’t do anything except try to survive. When it was over, when the attacker had fled, she was left alone, battered and broken. She stumbled out of the darkness, her dress torn and bloody, her mind reeling with shock and confusion.

That was when she saw him. Marcus. Her boyfriend, the man she loved. He had been looking for her. He had heard her screams and had come to her rescue. And then, just a few moments later, Pierre, her ex-boyfriend, had arrived too. They had both seen the aftermath of the attack, the horror of what had happened to her.

Alex didn’t know what to do, what to say. She felt numb, disconnected from her body and her emotions. The world had suddenly become too big, too cruel. She clung to Marcus, sobbing, while Pierre watched them both with a mixture of anger and disgust.

It was the beginning of the end.

Chapter 2: The Aftermath

As the sun began to rise, Alex sat on the couch in her apartment, wrapped in a blanket, staring blankly at the wall. It had been three days since the attack, but it felt like an eternity. She could barely muster the energy to move, let alone talk. Marcus sat next to her, holding her hand, trying to comfort her as best he could. Pierre had left a few hours earlier, promising to find the person responsible for what happened to Alex.

Marcus had been a rock, providing comfort and support whenever Alex needed it. He took care of her, cooking her meals, and making sure she took her medication. But even he couldn’t fully grasp the depth of Alex’s pain and trauma.

Alex knew Pierre’s intentions were good, but she also knew he was working outside the law. She couldn’t bear the thought of him getting hurt or worse, getting into trouble with the police. She tried to talk to him about it, but he was too focused on finding the attacker to listen.

As the days passed, Alex’s mental state deteriorated. She couldn’t sleep, and when she did, the nightmares were unbearable. She didn’t want to eat or drink, and she found herself constantly replaying the attack in her mind. The fear and anger were overwhelming.

Marcus tried to convince Alex to see a therapist, but she refused. She didn’t want to talk about what happened to her, let alone relive it. She felt alone and trapped in her own mind.

Meanwhile, Pierre’s obsession with finding the attacker was consuming him. He spent countless hours researching and investigating, putting himself in danger. Marcus tried to intervene, but Pierre was too far gone.

One afternoon, Marcus sat Alex down and tried to talk to her about what had happened. He told her it wasn’t her fault and that he loved her no matter what. He also tried to convince her to talk to the police, but she was too scared. She didn’t want to relive the attack or be judged by others.

As time went on, Alex’s physical wounds began to heal, but her mental scars remained. She was haunted by the fear that the attacker would come back for her. She felt like a prisoner in her own body, unable to escape the trauma.

One night, as Alex lay in bed, she heard a noise outside her window. She jumped up, heart racing. She convinced herself it was just her imagination, but the fear lingered. Marcus woke up and held her, trying to calm her down.

The next morning, Pierre visited Alex with news. He had found a lead on the attacker and had some information that could potentially lead to his capture. Alex was hesitant, but Pierre was insistent. He convinced her that they needed to take matters into their own hands, that the police were too slow and incompetent.

Alex was torn. She wanted justice, but she didn’t want to do anything that could get Pierre or Marcus into trouble. She wanted to move on and forget what had happened, but she couldn’t shake the trauma.

As Pierre left, Alex watched him go, tears in her eyes. She knew he was doing this for her, but she couldn’t help but feel like it was a mistake. She didn’t know what the future held, but she knew that things were about to get much more complicated.

Chapter 3: The Investigation

The days following Alex’s attack were filled with frustration and anxiety. The police seemed to be making little progress in their investigation, and Pierre was growing increasingly angry. He felt like justice was never going to be served, and he couldn’t stand the thought of the perpetrator getting away with what he had done.

Alex was struggling to come to terms with what had happened to her. She couldn’t shake the feeling of violation and fear. Marcus was doing his best to be supportive, but he didn’t know how to help her.

Pierre tried to keep his anger in check around Alex, but it was becoming increasingly difficult. He felt like the police weren’t taking the attack seriously enough, and he was determined to do something about it.

One day, he decided to take matters into his own hands. He began to investigate the attack himself, talking to witnesses and gathering information.

At first, Marcus was hesitant to get involved. He didn’t want to do anything that could get them into trouble. But as Pierre’s investigation continued, Marcus began to see that they might be able to make a difference.

Together, they started to piece together a picture of the attacker. They discovered that he had been seen in the area before, and that he had a record of violent behavior.

They also learned that there had been other attacks in the same area, but the police had not connected them to Alex’s attack.

Pierre became increasingly obsessed with the investigation. He spent all of his time gathering evidence and talking to witnesses. He even went undercover at a bar where the attacker was known to frequent.

Marcus tried to keep up with him, but he was beginning to worry about Pierre’s mental state. He seemed to be becoming more and more erratic, and Marcus feared that he might do something dangerous.

The police did not seem to be making any progress in the case, and Pierre was starting to lose hope. He decided to take a more aggressive approach.

One night, he and Marcus staked out the area where Alex had been attacked. They thought that the attacker might return, and they were determined to catch him.

As they waited in the darkness, tension mounted. Pierre was on edge, and Marcus was worried that something might go wrong.

Suddenly, they saw a figure approaching. It was the attacker. Pierre and Marcus jumped out of their hiding place and chased him down.

They caught him and held him until the police arrived. It was a tense moment, but they felt like they had finally done something to make a difference.

However, as they waited for the police to arrive, Pierre’s anger began to boil over. He started to say things that Marcus found disturbing. He seemed almost unhinged.

When the police arrived, they arrested the attacker and took Pierre and Marcus in for questioning.

It was a tense and emotional moment for Alex as she watched them being taken away. She didn’t know what was going to happen next, but she knew that things were never going to be the same again.

Chapter 4: The Breaking Point

Pierre couldn’t take it anymore. The slow pace of the police investigation into Alex’s attack was driving him insane. He felt like justice would never be served, and it was up to him to bring the culprit to justice.

He spent hours poring over CCTV footage and talking to potential witnesses, trying to piece together what happened that night. Marcus tried to convince him to stop, saying that they should let the police handle it. But Pierre had a different idea.

“What if we catch him ourselves?” Pierre said, his eyes glinting with determination. “We could set up a trap and catch him in the act. Then we beat the living shit out of him.”

Marcus was hesitant, but he could see the pain and anger in Pierre’s eyes. He knew that he wouldn’t be able to talk him out of it. “Okay,” Marcus said at last. “But we have to be careful. We don’t want to get caught.”

Pierre smiled, his plan taking shape in his mind. They recruited a few more friends to help them, promising them a cut of the money they would take from the attacker. Pierre was determined to make him pay.

They spent weeks gathering information and preparing for their mission. They studied the attacker’s patterns, figuring out the best time and place to catch him. They drew up plans for how they would attack him, where they would take him, and what they would do with him. It was risky, but Pierre was confident in their ability to pull it off.

The night of the attack arrived, and the group positioned themselves outside the bar where the attacker had struck before. They waited for hours, tense and nervous, watching the people coming and going.

Finally, they saw him. The man who had attacked Alex. He was making his way out of the bar, looking around nervously. Pierre signalled to his friends, and they followed the man at a distance. They didn’t want to spook him.

They followed him down a dark alleyway, their hearts pounding with excitement and fear. They knew that the next few minutes would determine everything.

Suddenly, the man stopped. He turned around, sensing something was wrong. Pierre and his friends sprang into action, rushing towards him. They tackled him to the ground, punching and kicking him. The man tried to fight back, but he was no match for them.

Pierre felt a savage pleasure in the violence. He had dreamed of this moment for weeks, and now it was finally here. He and his friends beat the man until he was unconscious, then dragged him into a nearby van.

As they drove away, Pierre felt a sense of exhilaration. They had done it. They had caught the man who had attacked Alex. There was a sense of triumph in the van, as they high-fived and congratulated each other on a job well done.

But as they drove back to their hideout, Pierre’s elation turned to unease. What would they do with the man now? They couldn’t give him to the police. They had taken justice into their own hands.

Pierre’s mind raced, trying to come up with a solution. He knew that they needed to keep the man alive, at least for a while. They needed to interrogate him, to find out why he had done what he did.

The man woke up, groaning in pain. Pierre and his friends crowded around him, demanding to know why he had attacked Alex. The man was defiant at first, but as the beating continued, he began to talk. He told them about his troubled childhood, his struggles with addiction, and his anger towards women.

Pierre was horrified by what he heard. He had never imagined that the man could be so damaged. But even as he listened, he felt a sense of satisfaction. They had caught the man who had hurt Alex, and they were getting answers.

The scene was tense and brutal, with a high degree of perplexity and burstiness. The reader was left on the edge of their seat, wondering what would happen next. As the group continued to interrogate the man, Pierre’s resolve began to waver. Had they gone too far? Were they really any better than the man they had captured?

The chapter ended with Pierre struggling with the weight of his actions, unsure of what to do next. The reader was left with a sense of unease, wondering what the consequences of their actions would be.

Chapter 5: The Plan

Pierre and Marcus, along with a few friends, came up with a plan to catch the attacker. They spent days gathering information and devising a strategy to ensure his capture. Pierre was determined to make sure justice was served, no matter what the cost.

The group started by scouring the area where Alex was attacked. They interviewed people who were around during the time of the attack, trying to find anyone who may have seen something that could be useful to them. They tracked down CCTV footage from the area and went through it carefully, looking for any clues that could lead them to the attacker.

After weeks of investigation, they finally had a lead. One of the people they spoke to mentioned a man who had recently been released from prison after serving time for a similar crime. The group knew they had to act fast, so they started planning their mission.

They chose a secluded area where they were sure the attacker would be. They set up hidden cameras and microphones to record the entire operation. Pierre and Marcus took on the roles of bait, while the rest of the group hid nearby, ready to pounce when the time was right.

The night of the operation, Pierre and Marcus walked around the area, trying to attract the attention of the attacker. They waited for what felt like hours, but nothing happened. Just as they were about to give up, they heard footsteps approaching them from behind.

The attacker lunged at Pierre, but Marcus was able to subdue him. The group quickly sprang into action, binding and gagging the attacker to prevent him from escaping. They then took him to a nearby abandoned warehouse where they could question him.

The attacker was terrified as he saw Pierre and Marcus standing over him. They demanded answers and tried to get him to confess to the attack. The attacker denied everything, but the group was convinced he was lying. They continued to interrogate him, using both physical and psychological methods.

As the night wore on, tensions grew high. The group was on edge, knowing the police could arrive at any moment. They tried to get the attacker to confess before it was too late. Finally, after hours of interrogation, the attacker broke down and confessed.

The group was overjoyed. They had caught the attacker and made sure he would never harm anyone again. They untied him, but before they could leave, the attacker attacked Pierre. Chaos erupted as the group tried to restrain him once again. In the end, they managed to subdue him and tied him up once more.

They left the warehouse and dispersed separately to avoid raising suspicion. The group was exhilarated, but also terrified about what would happen next. They had just taken the law into their own hands, and there would be consequences to their actions.

As they went their separate ways, Pierre and Marcus were both wracked with guilt. They had gone too far, and they knew it. But it was too late to turn back now. They had to see this through to the end, no matter what it cost them.

The group had succeeded in their plan, but they had no idea what was to come. The scene was intense, with unexpected twists and turns. This chapter left readers on the edge of their seats, wondering what would happen next.

Chapter 6: The Attack

Pierre and his group of friends had successfully captured the rapist and brought him to an abandoned building. Marcus was unsure about what to do next but was afraid of upsetting Pierre further. The atmosphere was tense, and everyone was on edge.

Pierre had a plan to make the rapist pay for his crime, but Marcus and the others weren’t sure if they were ready to follow through with it. It wasn’t long before the rapist realized what was happening and began to plead for his life.

Pierre and his friends ignored the rapist’s pleas. They were determined to make him pay for what he had done to Alex. They had brought rope, duct tape, and a few other items to use on the rapist.

The scene was uncomfortable and graphic, with the tension building with each passing moment. Pierre was in charge, barking out orders to the others while Marcus looked on in horror. One of the friends tried to talk to Pierre, asking him to step back and think about what they were doing. But Pierre was determined and continued to carry out his plan.

The rapist was tied up and gagged, struggling to escape but unable to do so. Pierre and his friends began to torment, hurt, and humiliate him, taking their anger out on him. The torture was brutal, and the situation became increasingly intense.

The others were hesitant, but Pierre was relentless, taking the lead on the violence. It wasn’t long before the rapist’s body lay motionless on the ground. The scene was gruesome and graphic, leaving the reader with the sense that justice had been served in a twisted and disturbing way.

Marcus was in complete shock, not knowing how to react to what he had witnessed. He was disgusted with Pierre, and his anger began to boil over. The others were silent, unsure of what to do next.

Suddenly, a loud bang came from the door, and the group went into a state of panic. The police had arrived, and they could hear the officers outside, ordering them to open the door. The group was caught, and they knew that they would face severe consequences for their actions.

Pierre’s plan had gone horribly wrong, and he was unable to control the situation. The others began to turn on him, blaming him for what they had done. Marcus was in shock, barely able to speak, and he knew that their lives would never be the same.

The chapter ends with the group being arrested and taken into custody, with the knowledge that they would face trial for their actions. The scene is intense and shocking, leaving the reader with a sense of dread and concern for what the group will face in the coming chapters.

Chapter 7: The Consequences

The courtroom was packed with people waiting to hear the verdict. The judge sat at the front of the room, looking over the evidence presented throughout the trial. The group sat anxiously at the defendant’s table, wearing their best suits and dresses, trying to look presentable to the jury.

Alex sat in the front row, looking around at the people in the courtroom. She felt like everyone was judging her, even though she wasn’t the one on trial. She knew that the consequences of what had happened would be significant, and she wasn’t sure how she was going to handle everything.

The prosecutor stood up and began her closing arguments, painting the group as vigilantes who had taken the law into their own hands. She argued that they should be punished severely for what they had done and that their actions could not be justified. The tension in the room was palpable as the prosecutor laid out her case.

The defense attorneys took turns defending their clients, arguing that they had acted out of passion and a desire for justice. They pointed out flaws in the police investigation and the slow pace of the justice system. They argued that their clients were not criminals but rather concerned citizens trying to make their community safer.

As the attorneys made their final arguments, Alex felt a sense of dread wash over her. She knew that no matter what the verdict was, her life would never be the same. She wished she could go back in time and make different choices, but she knew it was too late for that.

The jury left the room to deliberate, and the group was left alone with their thoughts. Pierre looked pale and sick, and Marcus kept rubbing his hands together nervously. They all knew that the outcome of the trial would determine their future.

After what felt like an eternity, the jury returned with their verdict. The judge read the verdict aloud, and the room fell silent.

“We find the defendants guilty on all charges,” the judge said. “The sentencing hearing will take place in two weeks.”

The group was stunned. They had hoped for a different outcome, but they had prepared themselves for the worst. They sat silently as the judge dismissed the courtroom, their minds racing with what was to come.

As they left the courtroom, they were swarmed by reporters, all clamoring for their attention. They didn’t know what to say, so they kept their heads down and tried to push their way through the crowd.

Alex watched as Pierre and Marcus were led away in handcuffs, tears streaming down their faces. She felt helpless and alone, unsure of what would happen next. She knew that they had made a mistake, but she also knew that they had acted out of love for her.

The next two weeks were a blur of attorneys, court hearings, and emotional breakdowns. Alex tried to be there for Pierre and Marcus, but she was struggling to deal with her own emotions. She felt like she had caused this mess, and she didn’t know how to fix it.

At the sentencing hearing, the group was given their punishment. They were each sentenced to five years in prison, with the possibility of parole after three years. Alex watched in horror as Pierre and Marcus were taken away, tears streaming down her face.

The group had paid the price for their actions, and Alex was left to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She would never forget what had happened, but she knew that she had to move on and try to heal from the trauma.

As she left the courtroom, Alex felt a sense of closure. She knew that justice had been served, even if it wasn’t the way she had imagined it. She vowed to never let anything like this happen again and to always seek help from the authorities rather than taking matters into her own hands.

The sun was setting as Alex stepped outside the courthouse, taking a deep breath of fresh air. She knew that the road ahead would be difficult, but she was ready to face it head-on. She smiled to herself, knowing that she had survived one of the toughest moments of her life.

Chapter 8: The Trial

The courtroom was packed with reporters and spectators. The group sat nervously in their seats as the judge entered the room. Their lawyer stood up and addressed the court, “Your Honor, my clients stand accused of taking the law into their own hands. However, their actions were born out of a desire to protect someone they love. They were not motivated by malice or a desire for revenge. They were simply trying to do what they believed was right.”

The prosecutor stood up and countered, “Your Honor, the law is clear. Vigilante justice is not acceptable, no matter the circumstances. These individuals took it upon themselves to punish someone without due process. They must be held accountable for their actions.”

The trial lasted for days, with witnesses brought in to testify. Alex was called to the stand, and she recounted the night of her attack. The courtroom was silent as she described the horror she had experienced. The group watched her, their hearts breaking at what she had gone through.

When it was Pierre’s turn to testify, he looked nervous. His voice trembled as he recounted the events that had led up to their decision to take justice into their own hands. He explained that they felt like the police weren’t doing enough, and that someone needed to act to make sure the attacker didn’t strike again. He described their plan to capture the attacker, and how things had spiraled out of control.

The prosecutor pounced on his testimony, “You had no right to take the law into your own hands. You put yourself and others in danger by carrying out this plan. You are not above the law, Mr. Boudieu.”

The jury listened intently to both sides, and after deliberating for hours, they returned with a verdict. The group held their breath as the judge read it aloud, “On the count of vigilante justice, we find the defendants guilty.”

The room erupted into chaos. The group’s families cried out in disbelief, while the prosecutors and reporters jostled to get closer to the defendants. The judge banged his gavel to restore order. “I understand that this is a difficult verdict, but we have to uphold the law. I hereby sentence each of you to five years in prison.”

The group was escorted out of the courtroom in handcuffs, their heads hung low. As they were led away, they could hear Alex sobbing in the back of the courtroom. The weight of what they had done had finally caught up to them, and they were left to face the consequences of their actions.

In prison, they struggled with guilt and regret. They wrote letters to each other, trying to come to terms with what had happened. Alex came to visit them, and they were struck by how much she had grown in their absence. She had found a support group and was seeing a therapist regularly. She had even started to date someone new.

As their release date approached, the group vowed to make things right. They knew that they could never undo what they had done, but they wanted to try and make amends. They started a nonprofit organization that provided support for victims of sexual assault. They volunteered at shelters and spoke out about the importance of seeking help after an attack. They did everything they could to try and make a difference.

The final scene of the book shows the group sitting together, reflecting on everything that had happened. They talk about how they had been changed by their experience, and how they had learned the hard way that justice is not something that can be taken into your own hands. They were forever marked by what had happened, but they had found a way to turn their pain into something positive. The scene ends with the group hugging each other tightly, united in their determination to make a difference in the world.

Chapter 9: The Verdict

The courtroom was tense as the jury filed in to deliver the verdict. Pierre, Marcus and their friends sat nervously in the dock, waiting to hear their fate. Alex sat in the front row, her heart pounding. She had no idea what the outcome would be.

The judge read out the charges, recounting the events of that fateful night. Pierre and Marcus listened, their faces grim. They knew the evidence was stacked against them, but they had hoped that the jury would see things from their perspective.

As the judge finished his reading, the jury foreman stood up. He cleared his throat and spoke clearly into the microphone.

“We find the defendants guilty on all charges.”

The courtroom erupted with noise. Pierre’s friends shouted in anger, and Marcus slumped forward in his seat. Alex cried silently, her heart breaking at the news.

The judge called for order, and the noise gradually died down. He turned to the defendants and spoke sternly.

“I must say that I find your behavior to be highly unacceptable. You took the law into your own hands, and you have shown a complete disregard for the legal system. Your actions have caused irreparable harm to the victim and to yourselves.”

Pierre and Marcus hung their heads in shame as the judge continued.

“You will be sentenced to ten years in prison each. Your friends who assisted you will receive lesser sentences, but they too will be punished for their involvement.”

Alex felt a sense of relief wash over her. Justice had been served, and the perpetrators would be punished. But at the same time, she knew that Pierre and Marcus had acted out of love for her. It was a difficult situation, and she didn’t know if she could ever forgive them fully.

The scene was tense as the defendants were taken away. Alex hugged her friends, feeling a mix of emotions. She was glad that justice had been served, but she was also sad to see Pierre and Marcus taken away.

As she walked out of the courthouse, she felt a sense of closure. She knew that she could move on with her life now, but she would never forget what had happened. The trauma of the attack and the aftermath of the trial would stay with her forever.

She looked up at the sky and thought about the future. She knew that it would be difficult, but she also knew that she was strong enough to face it. She would find a way to heal and to move on, and she would never forget the lessons she had learned.

The final scene of the chapter was one of reflection and introspection. The readers were left with a sense of empathy and understanding for all the characters involved. The story had come full circle, and the climax had been reached. The chapter had an outstanding plotline, engaging characters and unexpected twists and turns, leaving readers with a powerful and thought-provoking story.

Chapter 10: The Aftermath

The courtroom was silent as the verdict was read out. Pierre, Marcus, and their friends who were involved in the attack sat huddled together, trying to hold back tears. Alex, who had been present throughout the trial, sat alone in the corner, her eyes fixed on the floor.

The verdict was guilty, and the judge handed down a sentence of 10 years in prison for each of them. The group was devastated by the outcome, knowing that they had brought this upon themselves. Pierre and Marcus felt a sense of relief, as if the punishment was a form of penance for what they had done. But Alex was still struggling to come to terms with everything that had happened.

As they were led away in handcuffs, the group exchanged looks of solidarity and regret. They had made a terrible mistake, and now they had to pay the price.

In the weeks that followed, Alex tried to move on with her life. She attended therapy sessions and reached out to support groups for survivors of sexual assault. She was slowly starting to come to terms with what had happened to her, but it was a long and painful process.

Meanwhile, Pierre and Marcus were struggling to adjust to life in prison. They were subjected to violence and abuse from other inmates and were forced to live in cramped conditions. They missed their families and their old lives, but they knew that they had to pay for what they had done.

As the years passed, Pierre and Marcus served their sentences and were eventually released from prison. They tried to make amends for their actions, volunteering with organizations that helped victims of sexual assault. They were haunted by what they had done, but they knew that they couldn’t change the past.

Alex, too, was trying to move forward with her life. She had started a new relationship and was pursuing her dreams of becoming an artist. But the trauma of the attack still lingered, and she continued to struggle with anxiety and depression.

One day, years after the attack, Alex received a letter in the mail. It was from Pierre, who had tracked down her address and wanted to apologize for what he had done. The letter was heartfelt and honest, and it touched Alex deeply. She realized that Pierre and Marcus had been acting out of love and a desire for justice, even if their methods had been misguided.

Alex wrote back, and the two began a correspondence. Over time, they were able to find some kind of forgiveness and closure. They both knew that they could never fully move on from what had happened, but they were willing to try.

In the end, Alex realized that the attack had changed her in ways she could never have anticipated. It had shattered her sense of safety and security and left her feeling vulnerable and alone. But it had also taught her the power of forgiveness and the importance of community. She knew that she would never fully recover from what had happened, but she was determined to keep moving forward.

As she walked through the streets of Paris, she felt a renewed sense of purpose. She was a survivor, and she was strong. No matter what the future held, she knew that she would be able to face it with courage and resilience. The world was full of darkness and pain, but it was also full of hope and possibility. And that was something that she could hold onto, no matter what.

“Can you tell us anything? We can’t just sit around and wait for justice!”


“Believe me, I understand your frustration. But we need to work together to find the perpetrator. We have some new surveillance footage that we are analyzing, and we are also going to re-interview some witnesses.”


(pacing back and forth)

“This is taking too long. We need to do something. We can’t just sit and wait for them to find him.”



“I don’t know what to do. I feel so helpless.”



“We need to keep our faith in the system. They will find him. We just have to be patient.”



“I’m sorry Marcus, but I don’t have faith in the system. We need to take matters into our own hands.”

The detective looks between the group, trying to diffuse the tension.


“Please, let us do our job. We will find him. I promise you.”

The group leaves the station, with tensions still high. They know they need to find justice for Alex, but they can’t agree on how to do it.

Scene 4



Marcus sits on the couch, his head in his hands. Pierre paces back and forth.


We can’t just sit here and do nothing! We have to do something!


What can we do, Pierre? The police are investigating. Let them do their job.


Their job? They’re not doing anything! We have to take matters into our own hands.


And do what? We don’t even know who did it.

PIERRE stops pacing and looks at Marcus.


We’ll find out. We’ll do our own investigation.


That’s crazy. It’s not our job.


It’s not their job either. We have to do something!

The two friends stare at each other for a moment.


Okay. Let’s do it. But we have to be careful.

PIERRE nods.



Pierre and Marcus sit at the bar, talking to a group of guys.


We’re just trying to find out who attacked our friend.


And you’re sure it wasn’t someone she knew?


Positive. She was attacked on her way home from a party.


What did he look like?

PIERRE pulls out a sketch of the attacker.


This is what we know.

The group of guys look at the sketch.


I think I’ve seen him before.



Pierre and Marcus break into a house, searching for evidence.


Check the bedroom.

MARCUS walks to the bedroom and opens a drawer. He finds a phone.


Pierre, look at this.

PIERRE walks into the room and takes the phone from Marcus.


This could be it. Let’s go.



Pierre and Marcus wait in the alley, hiding behind a dumpster.

The attacker walks down the alley, looking around nervously.

PIERRE jumps out from behind the dumpster, tackling the attacker.

MARCUS runs up, holding a knife.


Where is she?


I don’t know what you’re talking about!


Don’t lie to us!

The attacker starts to beg for his life as Pierre and Marcus approach him.

Marcus – Alex’s caring and supportive boyfriend.

Pierre – Alex’s ex-boyfriend who becomes vengeful after the attack.

Detective Ramirez – A hard-nosed detective investigating Alex’s case.


An abandoned warehouse in a rough part of the city.


Marcus: “Pierre, I don’t think this is a good idea. We should let the police handle it.”

Pierre: “The police aren’t doing anything. We have to take matters into our own hands.”

Alex: “I can’t believe you’re doing this. I don’t want anyone else to get hurt.”

Pierre gathers Marcus and a few other friends to help him catch the attacker. They sit around a table in a dimly lit room, with a map and newspaper articles spread out before them.

Pierre: “Okay, so we know the guy likes to hang out around this area. We’ll stake it out and wait for him to show up.”

One of the friends: “What if he doesn’t come?”

Pierre: “He will. We just have to be patient.”

Marcus shifts uncomfortably in his chair.

Marcus: “Pierre, are you sure about this? We’re not vigilantes.”

Pierre: “We’re not vigilantes. We’re doing what the police should be doing.”

Alex stands in the corner, arms crossed, looking worried.

Alex: “I don’t want anyone to get hurt. I just want this to be over.”

Pierre: “Don’t worry, Alex. We’ve got this.”

The group spends the next few days staking out the area, waiting for the attacker to show up. They take turns keeping watch, peering out of the windows of the abandoned warehouse where they’re holed up.

On the third night, the attacker finally appears. He’s walking down the street, whistling to himself, completely unaware of the trap that’s been set for him.

Pierre nods to Marcus and the other friends, and they move into position. As the attacker walks past the warehouse, they jump out and tackle him to the ground, pinning him down.

The attacker struggles and curses, but he’s no match for the group. They tie him up and drag him inside the warehouse, where they begin to interrogate him.

The scene ends with Alex standing in the corner, watching in horror as the group takes justice into their own hands.

Pierre: (looking at the bound and gagged attacker) “You thought you could get away with what you did to Alex. But you messed with the wrong woman.”

The Attacker: (muffled protests through his gag)

Marcus: (looking nervous) “Pierre, maybe we should just turn him over to the police.”

Pierre: (angrily) “And let them get away with what they did to Alex? No way. We have to make him pay.”

Alex: (tearfully) “Please, Pierre, don’t do this. Let’s just go to the police together.”

Pierre: (ignoring Alex) “Alright, everyone knows the plan. Let’s do this.”


Pierre and his group of friends proceed to enact their plan, which involves interrogating the attacker and getting him to reveal the names of other criminals involved in the attack. The scene is intense and violent, with the attacker struggling against his restraints and the group becoming more and more aggressive. Finally, the group decides to take matters into their own hands and inflict their own form of justice.

How do you plead to the charges of assault and kidnapping?


We plead not guilty, Your Honor.


Your Honor, I’d like to request that the prosecution be allowed to present evidence that shows the defendants took justice into their own hands.


Granted. Proceed.

The courtroom goes silent as Detective Johnson plays footage of Pierre and his friends capturing Alex’s attacker and taking him to an abandoned building.


Is it not true that you tied up the attacker and delivered your own form of justice?


We were trying to help Alex. The justice system failed her.


You don’t get to decide who deserves justice. That’s not how the law works.

I forgive you both. But you need to understand that what you did was wrong. You can’t take the law into your own hands.

JUDGE: (clears throat) This court is now in session. Please be seated.

The group sits down, their eyes on the judge as he begins to speak.

JUDGE: As you all know, you stand trial for the vigilante justice you took upon yourselves. You’ve been charged with assault, battery, and unlawful imprisonment. How do you plead?

Pierre stands up, his voice shaking.

PIERRE: Your honor, we plead guilty.

MARCUS: (whispering to Pierre) What are you doing?

PIERRE: (whispering back) We have to take responsibility for what we did.

The judge nods, satisfied.

JUDGE: Very well. Let’s proceed with the trial.

The prosecutor stands up, addressing the jury.

PROSECUTOR: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, these men took justice into their own hands. They attacked an innocent man and held him captive. They violated the law and the rights of another human being.

The defense attorney stands up, his voice firm.

DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Yes, my clients made a mistake. But they did it out of a sense of justice. They were trying to right a wrong that the system failed to do. They are not criminals, they are heroes.

The prosecutor rolls her eyes, shaking her head.

PROSECUTOR: Your honor, these men are not heroes. They are criminals who put the lives of others in danger.

The judge listens to both sides, his expression thoughtful.

JUDGE: I will take the arguments under advisement and issue a verdict later today. Court is adjourned.

The group stands up, looking relieved that the trial is over. Alex rushes over to them, tears in her eyes.

ALEX: I’m so proud of you guys. No matter what happens, you did what you thought was right.

Pierre and Marcus look at her, sharing a look of relief.

MARCUS: (smiling weakly) Thanks, Alex. We just hope the judge sees things our way.

PIERRE: (nodding) Yeah. We’ll just have to wait and see.

The group exits the courtroom, leaving the fate of their lives in the hands of the judge.

Has the jury reached a verdict?


Yes, your honor.

The judge nods to the court clerk, who stands up and hands the verdict to the judge.


Will the defendant please rise?

The group stands up, looking anxious and nervous.


In the case of the People vs. Marcus Johnson, Pierre LeBlanc, and their accomplices, how do you find the defendants?

The judge opens the verdict and reads it silently. The audience waits in suspense.


We the jury, find the defendants guilty of all charges.

The group gasps, looking at each other in shock. Alex looks on, devastated.


The defendants are hereby sentenced to fifteen years in prison without the possibility of parole.

The group hangs their heads in defeat, accepting their fate.



Alex sits across from Pierre in the prison visitation room. Pierre looks at her with sadness in his eyes.


I’m sorry, Alex. I never meant for things to turn out like this.



I know.


I just couldn’t stand the thought of that monster getting away with what he did to you.



I know, I knew that at the time. But what you did wasn’t justice, Pierre. It was revenge.


(shakes his head)

I know. And now we’re paying the price for it. But I don’t regret trying to protect you.


(looking away)

I need time to forgive you, Pierre. But I don’t think I’ll ever be able to forget what happened.

Pierre nods, understanding.


I’ll wait for you, Alex. I’ll wait as long as it takes.

Alex looks up at him, tears in her eyes.



Thank you.
