Police station.

‘Here you are I have been looking all over for you’ a women said standing at Peter’s office door.

Peter stood up from his chair just looking at a bullet which had his name on lying on his office table.

‘Tracey she knows every move I make’ shouted Peter.

‘Peter carm down’ said Tracey whilst putting the bullet in an evidence bag.

Peter snatches the evidence bag out of her hand and shouts ‘what is the point Zoë is to in far in front as if she is going to leave finger prints on the bullet. She is not stupid.

She was the most feared women in Summer Bay last year and again I let the stalker come back to Summer Bay’ said Peter not realising that Dan has just walked in to the station and heard everything.

Pete looks up and his brother.

‘Is it true Pete?’ asked Dan.

‘Tracey can I talk to my brother alone?’ asked Peter.

‘Id rather be here’ replied Tracey

‘Its ok ill talk to him and I will meet you in the dinner in half hour’ said Peter.

Tracey goes to the dinner.

‘Pete what’s going on’ asked Dan as he shut Peter’s office door.

‘its.. its….’ Said Peter

‘Is zoe alive’ dan shouted.

‘Yes that is why I returned because I found out she was alive’ said Peter.

‘So all this about you coming back because Claire dumped you was a lie?’ asked Dan.

‘No I and Claire did end but it was because I was getting to involved with the stalker case and I finished it because I knew long distant relationships wouldn’t work’ replied Peter.

‘Dan no one must know about what I have told you’ demanded Peter.

‘Of course I will not say anything’ said Dan.

Jack enters Peter’s office saying ‘Can I have the bullet to send off to forensics

‘Hold on the bullet… Pete what bullet’ asked Dan.

‘Its nothing’ said Peter.

Dan stood up and took the bullet from Jack hand and read the writing.

‘Pete why didn’t you tell me’ asked Dan

‘Everything is ok’ said Peter.

Laura runs in to Peter’s office and says ‘Pete it’s your apartment….. It’s been trashed’.

Peter, Jack and Dan head out to Peter apartment.

On the way to Peters apartment Jack rings Tracey to meet them their.

Jack and Peter run towards Peter’s front door and walk in to the kitchen area.

Dan waits outside for Tracey.

Pete starts to look around the apartment when he see’s a note saying ‘Well well I could but I want to hit you where it hurts’

‘DAN………. Get in my car and go back home now’

‘No pete I’m staying here’ replied Dan.

‘DAN NOW!!’ demanded Peter.

As Jack walked out of Peter’s bedroom he could hear a ticking noise.

‘Pete in here’

Tracey arrived and walked in to Peter’s bedroom to find Peter trying to disconnect a bomb which was in his pant draw.

Jack frantically dials the bomb squads number but It will be too late they have to disconnect it them selves.

‘Let’s get out of here now’ shouted Tracey.

But peter was determined not to let Zoë win.

Jack and Tracey watch the timer clicking down to zero and it’s on 8 seconds

Peter cuts the red wire but the timer is still going.

‘It should have stopped’ Peter shouted.

Tracey and Jack pull Peter away and run out the apartment.

As they are running out of the door they hear and gun shot then the bomb explodes

‘Pete’ shouted Tracey.

Tracey moved towards Pete who was not moving.

Pete slowly woke up and started to get up off the ground.

Tracey rang for an ambulance and the fire brigade as Peter’s apartment was on fire.

Tracey turned around to see Jack lying underneath Peter’s front door.

The force of the bomb threw the door of its hinges and landed on Jack as they were running out the apartment.

‘Where’s Dan my cars still here’ shouted Peter.

Peter started to look around when he could see Dan’s legs behind the boot of his car.

Pete runs over to Dan but is struggling to walk because of a big piece of glass in his leg.

‘Dan are you ok’ shouted Peter.

‘Ow my god DAN’ shouted Peter.

As Peter tried to wake up Dan he could see a bullet in his left leg and he was losing lots of blood.

‘Tracey its Dan he’s losing blood’ shouted Peter.

‘Where the f*** is the ambulance’ shouted Peter.

‘Its coming’ Tracey said as she was to move the rubble of Jack.

Peter tied his jacket around Dan’s leg trying to stop the bleeding.

As he looked up he could see a letter sitting on his dashboard of his car.

Peter went in to his car and read the note that said ‘is this close enough to your heart? Or do you love someone else more……
