Daily Cereal: Beginnings – Ep 5.

Previously on Daily Cereal … Nic had found himself locked in the kitchen with Maya and her still bloody axe …

Nic: Um …

Maya: I really wouldn’t say anything if I were you.

Nic: Ok.

Maya: Give me your keys.

Nic: My what?

Maya: Your keys, give me your keys.

Nic: Ok.

Nic slowly put his hands in his jeans pockets and rummages around … he takes his hands out of his jeans and puts them into his hoodie pockets … he takes his hands out of his hoodie and he pats around all of his pockets to find his keys.

Maya: Where are they?

Nic: I swear they were in here a minute ago. Maybe they’re up(stairs) …

Maya: Ok, forget it.

She opens the cupboard under the sink and removes some rubbish bags.

Maya: Come on.

Nic: Where are we going?

She also grabs the newspaper off the table.

Maya: You’re going to help me clean.

Nic: Don’t-don’t-don’t-don’t-don’t you need to be somewhere? That whole 9pm panic, you had? Don’t have to go?

Maya: And leave this mess for you? No, I wouldn’t do that, I’m a nice sister.

Nic: Mm-hmm.

Maya: Come on.

She makes sure that Nic goes ahead of her into the corridor.

Maya: Into the living room.

Nic complies, he steps into the living room with his eyes shut.

Nic: Where is she?

Maya: There.

Nic: Where?

Maya: For god sake’s Nic, right there.

Nic opens his eyes, the cop is slumped on the couch.

Nic: What are we going to do now?

Maya: We’re going to clean up. Take her legs.

Nic: Legs?

Maya: Her legs, the two things wearing trousers.

Nic picks up the police woman’s legs. Maya tries and tucks the axe into her belt and takes up the upper part of the police woman’s body.

Maya: All right, lift.

Nic: Where are we going?

Maya: Upstairs, mum’s room. You first.

Nic and Maya carry the police woman up the stairs.

Nic: What are you going to do?

Maya: Hey, hold onto her properly, you’re going to drop her.

Nic: I’m not.

Maya: You are.

Nic: I’m not. It’s not easy going up the stairs backwards.

Maya: Oh it’s so hard to be you.

Nic: Well you’re not the one with a pyscho killer sister …


Nic: I mean …


Maya: Keep moving.

They climb the stairs, enter their parent’s bedroom and place the police woman on the bed.

Maya: Stand there.

Nic stands next to the bed. Maya searches the police woman’s body and finds hand cuffs. She handcuffs Nic to the leg of the bed.

Maya: Wait here.

Maya leaves the room.

Where is she going? What lies in store for Nic? Click in tomorrow to find out …
