THEY BOTH BREAK INTO A RUN AS FIGURES SEEM TO APPEAR IN THE SHADOWS, LURCHING TOWARDS THE TWO POLICE OFFICERS AS THEY RUN. THE SOUND OF GROWLING AND MOANING IS GETTING LOUDER.
FIRST POLICE OFFICER
(out of breath) I…..I….am not going to make it Rookie..you have to get in the car and drive….
but Sir?!?! …we….we are almost there…
THE CAR IS WITHIN REACH BUT THE FIRST POLICE OFFICER ACCEPTS HIS FATE. HE SLOWS HIS RUNNING TO A WALK AND TURNS TO FACE WHATEVER IS FOLLOWING HIM.
FIRST POLICE OFFICER
Run…..Seras…I will buy you as much time as I can…get the hell out of here!!!
AS SHE REACHES FOR THE CAR DOOR HANDLE, THE SCREAMS OF THE MAN FILLS THE DARK NIGHT AIR. A TEAR RUNS DOWN HER CHEEK AS SHE OPENS THE DOOR.
ZOOM TO CLOSE-UP OF HER EYES AS SERAS VICTORIA HEARS A GROWLING VOICE FROM BEHIND HER.
CUT TO: SIR INTEGRA HELLSING SITTING IN HER OFFICE. HER BUTLER WALTER IS ON HER RIGHT SIDE. ACROSS THE DESK FROM HER ARE 3 MEMBERS OF THE METROPOLITAN POLICE. AMONG THEM THEIR POLICE CHIEF WHO LOOKS CONCERNED AND SLIGHTLY FRUSTRATED.
So…you are telling me that 3 of my officers are missing because of fairy tale creatures?
SECOND POLICE OFFICER
Highly unlikely Sir. This is all nonsense and we are only wasting time. They have not reported in for 3 hours and all attempts to contact them has failed.
AS SHE LISTENS TO THE MEN IN HER OFFICE, INTEGRA CUTS THE END OF HER CIGAR AND PLACES IT IN HER MOUTH. WALTER LEANS IN WITH A LIGHTER AND SPARKS IT TO LIFE. THE SMOKE BILLOWS THROUGH THE ROOM AS INTEGRA SHAKES HER HEAD IN DISBELIEF.
No. That is not what I am saying at all. What I am saying is that for many, many years the Hellsing Organization has protected the Crown and England from creatures and beings that no one else could. Your officers are in terrible danger.
well based on your…ahem…expetrise then Sir Integra. What is the cause of this then?
LEANING FORWARD IN HER CHAIR, INTEGRA DRAWS A LONG INHALE OFF OF HER CIGAR AND BLOWS THE SMOKE TO THE LEFT. HER VOICE IS CALM BUT AS SOLID AS STEEL.
They have succumbed to vampires.
ALL THREE MEN LOOK AT HER IN CONFUSION BUT THEN BREAK OUT INTO LAUGHTER AS INTEGRA BUTTS THE CIGAR OUT IN A NEARBY ASHTRAY. SHE THEN INTERRUPTS THEIR LAUGHING, HER TONE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND URGENT.
Laugh all you wish gentlemen but you no longer have any jurisdiction in this matter. The Queen has issued control to the Hellsing Organization and we have an agent en route to Cheddar to take care of the vampire and find out what happened to your missing officers.
One agent?!?!? We sent three of our most highly trained officers into that village and they have gone missing. What makes you think that one man stands a chance. Especially if it is a vampire that he will find in Cheddar?
AS THE THREE MEN LOOK AT HER, A SMILE CREEPS ACROSS HER FACE. INTEGRA LEANS FORWARD ON TO HER DESK, RESTING HER ELBOWS ON THE SURFACE AS SHE INTERLOCKS HER FINGERS TOGETHER.
Gentlemen, It is actually quite simple. The only way to be able to destroy vampires is to hunt them with a vampire of your own.
You’re saying that you….the Hellsing Organization…has it’s own vampire and it hunts it’s own kind?
That is correct Chief but I do assure you of one thing. This vampire is truly one of a kind.
FADE OUT TO A FLASHBACK: A MAN LIES IN A BED THAT HAS VARIOUS MEDICAL STAFF SURROUNDING IT. AN IV BAG IS HOOKED TO HIS ARM AND HIS FACE IS EXPRESSIONLESS. A YOUNG GIRL HOLDS HIS HAND AND CRIES AS HE SPEAKS.
My….dear….Integra….the day….has come…..where I will…be leaving…you…
When…you find yourself….in trouble….in danger…and you can not….defend yourself…remember…head to the dungeon ….that is hidden …in the basement…there lies our secret weapon….it….it will…protect you….I…I love you….my daughter…
AS THE WORDS LEAVE HIS LIPS, HIS HEAD FALLS TO THE SIDE LIFELESS. INTEGRA BURSTS INTO TEARS AND UNCONTROLLABLE SOBBING. FADE OUT TO A BLACK SCREEN.
UNKNOWN MAN #1
Sir, we have checked everywhere in the mansion and we can not find her.
FADE IN TO: RICHARD HELLSING, UNCLE OF INTEGRA, IS SEARCHING THE BASEMENT WITH TWO OTHER MEN.
The little brat has to be here somewhere. When my brother passed, she inherited the right to lead the Hellsing Organization. It should have been me!
RICHARD HOLDS A HAND GUN UP AND SLIDES AN AMMO CLIP INTO THE HANDLE. HE REMOVES THE SAFETY WITH A CLICK AND TURNS TO FACE THE THE TWO MEN WITH HIM.
Let’s check the basment, even though it has been abandoned for many years.
UNKNOWN MAN #2
Sir, if she isn’t found soon the others will become suspicious. It has been a week since Arthur passed and the board will want to see the new leader at the next meeting.
THE MEN ENTER THE BASEMENT AND BEGIN TO SEARCH. THEIR FLASHLIGHTS BRIEFLY REFLECT OFF OF INTEGRA’S GLASSES AND THEY RUSH IN TO MAKE THEIR MOVE. SHE RAISES HER RIGHT ARM TO COVER HER EYES FROM THE LIGHT AND IS HUDDLED BY A DOOR WITH A PENTAGRAM PAINTED ON IT IN RED PAINT.
please…Uncle….don’t do this…
Yes I will my niece. You are too young to inherit all of this. It should be mine. I was the one who worked side by side with your father to maintain it all.
INTEGRA FIDDLES WITH THE DOOR KNOB BUT RICHARD SLAMS HIS HAND ON THE DOOR.
Why Uncle? Why are you doing this? WHY?!?!
For it has to be Integra. I wish I could say I was sorry but my dear, I am only sorry I could not find you sooner.
RICHARD RAISES HIS GUN AND FIRES A SHOT WHICH HITS INTEGRA IN THE SHOULDER. THE FORCE OF THE IMPACT DISLODGES THE DOOR AND SHE FALLS INTO THE ROOM. AS RICHARD ILLUMINATES THE ROOM WITH HIS FLASHLIGHT, HE NOTICES INTEGRA LANDED ON A CORPSE THAT WAS CHAINED TO THE WALL AND IN A STRAIGHT JACKET.
