Hero v Saint
*The camera cuts to the carpark in the back.
Saint is sat looking bored on the bonnet of a car, a referee is close by playing Brain Gain on the DS. He has the volume on loud and its visibly annoying Saint.
A car slowly pulls in front of them and the driver window winds down
It’s Miss Jessica*
Jessica – Sorry to tell you this but Hero isn’t coming
Saint- WHAT!!! This is the biggest night of my career and he can’t make it! Why the hell not??
J – He’s washing his hair ready to go out.
S – You’re kidding me? I’ll kill him!
J – Hey don’t shoot the messenger! Anyway better get going, the table is booked at the restaurant in 20 minutes.
S- I’ve had enough of this, MOVE OVER!
*Saint pulls open the door and shoves Miss Jessica to the passenger seat, the car then speeds out of the carpark.
A minute later it screeches back in and the window winds down*
S- Ref get in! And if you play that bloody game in the car I’ll throttle you!
*The camera cuts to a busy street in Mayfair, it pans across the road to the front of Claridges restaurant and a car brakes heavily outside. Saint jumps out, throws the keys to the guy on the door and marches straight in.
Screams are heard from inside, glasses being smashed and a waiter runs out with a lobster attached to his nose.
Suddenly Hero is thrown through the window and lands with a crash onto the pavement. Saint strides out through the broken glass and goes to hit Hero in the face but Hero rolls to the side and Saint’s knuckles smash into the floor and glass shards, a pool of blood immediately spreads and goes down the cracks in the pavement.
Hero gets to his feet and delivers a knee to Saints gut to draw the wind out of him before he makes a break for it and starts to run down the street. The camera follows Hero as he looks for a way to escape the behemoth.
From behind the camera Miss Jessica’s car suddenly plough into view, Hero sees it at the last split second but he’s too late trying to jump out of it’s way and it smashes against him. He’s flung up over the bonnet and smashes against the windscreen.
Saint gets out of the driving seat and climbs on top of the car. The ref emerges from the backseat and begins to count 1…..2….Hero somehow kicks out and slumps off the bonnet.
Saint continues his onslaught and goes to deliver a chokeslam upon Hero when….
Miss Jessica rushes to her boyfriends aid and sprays her perfume directly into Saints eyes.
Saint releases his hold on Hero and drops to the floor cupping his hands into the puddles on the floor to calm the burning in his eyes.
The pain relieves and he prepares for Hero to strike….but it doesn’t come.
He opens his eyes to see Hero and Miss Jessica have vanished. Saint smashes his bloody fist down onto the bonnet of the car in anger but then stops.
A trail of dripping blood.
Saint turns to the ref*
S - Follow me!
*With the light dimming the camera follows Saint through a couple of streets as he chases the trail. He climbs over a fence and emerges into a childrens playground, the trail goes dead.
Frustrated again he sits down on a bench.
Hero hiding in the bushes behind the bench sees his chance and slowly creeps up behind Saint with a tree branch in his hands.
Hero raises the branch above his head and swings down but Saint could see Hero’s shadow cast over the bench and dodges.
The branch smashes down on the bench where Saint’s head would have been and breaks in two.
Hero throws it to one side and jumps onto the top of the bench before leaping off and delivering a flying kick to Saint’s chest sending him towards the swings.
Hero connects again with a drop kick and Saint topples onto the swing. Hero sees his chance and whips around the swing and hits with a Tiger Feint Kick. Saint reels back, staggers then drops to the floor.
Hero leaps on top and goes for the pin.
1….2…..Saint throws Hero clear by a good couple of feet.
Saint slowly rises to his feet, Hero tries to stop the recovery by hitting with a couple of punches but to no avail. Saint grabs Hero and Irish Whips him against the climbing frame then follows with a body to body check.
Saint lifts Hero over his shoulders and climbs up the frame.
On top the frame Saint lifts Hero up clean over his head and throws him down 15ft onto the floor below.
Saint drops down from the frame and goes over to get the pin on the champ 1….2…shoulders up.
Saint looks in disbelief as he didn’t get the win and gets to his feet.
Hero with a second wind blocks a chop and hits a blow to Saints gut. Saint goes for another chop but again Hero blocks and strikes back.
Saint fights back with a big boot to the stomach and hits with a quick clothesline.
Hero crawls to the firemans pole on the climbing frame and uses the pole to get to his feet.
Saint sees Hero struggling and takes a runup for a spear.
Hero is feinting though and ducks, Saints shoulder cracks into the pole and he roars in pain and drops to his knees.
Hero rushes up the frame and stands at the top of the pole.
Saint looks up just to see Hero drop down the pole and drive his feet straight into Saint’s face.
Both competitors physically exhausted struggle to get to their feet.
They exchange blow upon blow, punch upon punch but neither buckle nor refuse to quit.
hero goes for a kick to the guts but Saint catches his foot and sweeps the other leg into the air.
He goes for the pin 1…2..Hero barely gets his shoulder off the floor
Both competitors crawl back to the climbing frame.
With every last breath they clamber up separate ladders to the top where they meet at the top.
Again they exchange blows but neither has any power behind their attacks.
They both teeter on the edge of the frame and at the same time both go to throw the other off.
Their bodies crash to the floor at the same time.
With what seems an eternity they remain motionless, until Hero’s arm raises and flops over Saints chest.
The ref counts 1….2……3
Miss Jessica rushes over to her boyfriend and helps him to his feet, his knees nearly buckling under him.
He looks down at Saint and then to Jessica.
Hero gestures to Jessica and between them they pull the giant Saint to his feet.
Saint looks at Hero and expects for one last attack but…
Hero puts forward his hand
Saint looks taken aback for a second but then grasps Hero’s hand with his and they shake in respect.
