[SCENE: A mall, a girl called Jersey is on the electric stairs, going up to the 2 floor, she was almost there...when... an earthquake starts, and she is about to fall but luckely a guy that was behind her catches her]
Man: Are you ok?
Jersey: Yeah , Thanks...
Man: Hurry up, take my hand this place is tearing apart!
(They started to run to the nearest stairs to go down, but they saw that the stairs were getting too crowded ,so they run to the “Fast Food” section to get under one of those tables to get protected, once the earthquake had finished, and they stoped to try to protect themselves Jersey looked up the the mistery man to thank him)
Jersey:OMG...Im so glad this is over...are you ok?
Man: Yeah...oh...and by the way I never got to introduce myself, Im...

Matt: Oh...and you are?
Jersey: Im Jersey...thanks for saving my life...
Matt: I didnt save your life I just gave you a hand
Jersey: Well without that I’ll be under rocks by now...
Matt: It wasn’t that much, what its important now its to know if we can get out of here ok? What we’ll do will be this...I’ll go over the stairs to see if its safe for us to get down, and you’ll stay here ok?
Jersey: Take care...everythings its still very unstable...
Matt: I’ll take care...dont worry
(Matt walked to where the stairs were but he discovered that they had fallen down!!, so he went back with Jersey)
Matt: There is a little problem...you’ll see ...uhm...well the stairs are gone!!
Matt: I know...look stay calmed, Im sure will be ok...
(Jersey starts to cry)
Jersey: We are never going to get out of here!! I mean , no stairs, no food, it will take hours, and hours, to anyone who wants to look for us....

(They are still inside the table Matt is hugging her)
Matt: Look I have an idea I’ll try to call David or Matthew so they can send a rescue team ok?
Jersey: David as in David Schimmer, and Matthew as in Matthey Perry? OMG...taking off the earthquake I can tell you this is a dream come true...right now its turning into a nightmare...but I’ll keep the dreamy part..

David on the phone: Where are you?
Matt: Trapped on a mall, with the earthquake the stairs fell and Im trapped here...I dont have enough battery to call 911 so, please try to do something ok?
David on the phone: Ok...its the JCP Mall right?
Matt: Yes...please...you have to do something fast...
(He hangs up the phone)
Jer: So he will help us?
Matt: As far as I know he will
(Another earthquake hits the mall, this time less strong than the other one, but this time the ceiling that was made of glass starts to fall down so Matt takes his jackes and covers Jersey and himself with it...After its over...)
Jer: Oh...dear God...please tell me they’ll get us out of here...
Matt: They’ll ,they’ll...
(The sound of a helicopter makes them get out from the table and look up into the now broken ceiling, they are saved!! A rescue team, helps them to get into the helicopter)
[SCENE:ON THE HELICOPTER ,MATT AND JERSEY ARE THERE]
Matt: I told you we’ll be ok
Jersey: Wow...I can’t beleive I survived a terrible earthquake and I’m sitting here with...with ...one of the persons I admire the most...
