INT. JOHNSON HOUSE/KIERAN’S ROOM - AFTERNOON

Kieran in TEE-SHIRT AND JEANS, hangs his SCHOOL CLOTHES in his WARDROBE. Sam, still in UNIFORM comes in with his SCHOOL RUCKSACK.






Sam dumps the rucksack on the bed, pulls out a BB GUN and points it at Kieran.

SAM

Hands in the air sucker!

It looks like a real gun.

KIERAN.

Shit man - What the F...

SAM (Grinning)

It’s not real - it’s a BB gun

KIERAN.

That looks well illegal!

Taking the gun from Sam, Kieran examines it, weighing it in his hand - it’s quite light.

KIERAN. (CONT’D) Cool! Where d’ya get it?

SAM
Tim Rogers - it was bright blue but he sprayed it and everything.

KIERAN. How much?

SAM
Swapped it for a couple of PS2 games.

The bedroom door opens suddenly as Lorraine enters carrying a pile of CLEAN CLOTHES. Kieran throws the gun at Sam who quickly drops it into his bag - but not quick enough.






LORRAINE. What’s going on?

SAM, Nothing.

KIERAN. Nothing.

LORRAINE.  What’s in the bag then?








The boys stare at her dumbly. Lorraine puts the washing down on a chair

LORRAINE (CONT’D) (Holding out her hand)

Come on...

She reaches for Sam’s rucksack, puts in her hand and pulls out the gun. Lorraine looks at her boys in turn.

SAM
It can’t hurt anyone!

LORRAINE
Well I don’t care - it looks real. Start waving this around and we’ll have a police SWAT team outside.
