1: Sal is sat on the ground. The boulder behind him is illuminated by his phone screen.

Sal: Sorry Kay, I know how much you hate video messages.
I was caught… Someone was there waiting for me. I got away, I didn’t get hurt, but…

2: His head is in his hand.

Sal: But… by the gods… I forgot the dish.
It’s still there. And it’s got my fingerprints all over it.
I’m using cellphone signal right now. They can’t block it, but they can certainly track it.

3: Viewed in the phone’s camera, he’s tearing up.

Sal: It worked, Kay! I got in!

4: Seen from the side, surrounded by the dark dessert. His nervous expression is giving way to pure fear.

Sal: I got into their network… I downloaded all this security footage…
By the gods, Kay, the thing I saw…
They have something down there. I don’t know what it is…

5: In some nearby bush, a snake slowly moves through the dirt, barely seen by the light.

Sal: I’m sending the footage to someone I can trust.
I… I have to disappear for a while, they’ll be looking for me. They’ll probably catch me no matter what… Sorry. Sorry Kay. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can, I promise.

6: Seen from further away, Sal is a lit island in darkness.

Sal: But, by the gods… what was it?
What did I get myself into this time?
