LOCATION - LAS - WALLY'S WORLD

VISUAL SCAN - Wally's wearing the most outrageous multicolor faux fur coat over a black and white no collar shirt, leather pants and a bitchin' pair of leather high top sneaks.

EM Scan - Electromagnetic fields indicate a totally distinguished aura.

The dude is cookin'.  His fingers are flying over the keyboard like lightening.
Of course the cell is totally trashed like it always is.  Discarded food containers,
that are SUPPOSED to be recyled are like everywhere.

Wally's working on a subroutine that's supposed to enhance MY invisible nature.
I guess this other hacker dude is at war with Wally and is trying to track me down
to decompile me.   Punk.

Whoa.  This chick just strolled in.  Tres cute.  Let's check the old database... Hmmm....
Adriene Jenkens.  Her father's the mayor of UFS.  Whoa!  Wally better be nice to this
chick.  He doesn't even see her.

Wally jumps a mile when Adriene puts a hand on his shoulder.

			WALLY
	AAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Adrienne pulls back in terror as Wally spins on her.  He holds a can of 
iNcapacitate spray in one hand.  Adrienne sees the can of spray and bursts
into tears.  Wally looks at the can dumbfounded and then back at Adrienne.  
He's like tres confused.

			WALLY
	Gees Addy I wasn't really gonna spray you.  You
	just scared the hell out of me.  I didn't hear you come
	in.  How'd you get by all of my security anyway.

Wally stands and goes over to Adrienne to give her a consoling hug.  Dude!  You animal!

			ADRIENNE
	I used the password you gave me!

			WALLY
	Oh yea.

Spaceshot.

			ADRIENNE
	I'm in big trouble Wally.  I need your help.

			WALLY
	Sure Addy.  You know I'd do anything for you.
	Come sit down.  Jesus, you look terrible.

She looks bitchin't to me.

			ADRIENNE
	Thanks.

			WALLY
	Sorry.

Wally leads Adrienne over to a litter strewn couch.  With a sweep of
his arm he knocks all of the crap onto the floor and out of the way.
The two sit.

			WALLY
	What's wrong?

			ADRIENNE
	I was seeing this guy.

Adrienne studies Wally before he goes on.

			WALLY
	Yeah?  So?  Your old man giving you a hard 
	time?

			ADRIENNE
	He got murdered Wally.

			WALLY
	Oh shit.

			ADRIENNE
	I was there.

			WALLY
	Did you see who did it?

			ADRIENNE
	No.  I got there just after they did it.

			WALLY
	They?

			ADRIENNE
	Yeah, I thought I heard three voices.  One was
	Les.

			WALLY
	Les is the guy that got wasted?

			ADRIENNE
	Wally!  He was my lover.

			WALLY
	Sorry...  Killed.

			ADRIENNE
	Yes.  He was going down there to meet this
	guy Krak.  I think they set him up.

			WALLY
	And now you're afraid they're after you.

			ADRIENNE
	I see monsters in the shadows Wally.  I don't 
	know what to expect.  I'm so afraid.

Wally stands and places a finger on a chin.

			WALLY
	Too bad this had to happen now.

			ADRIENNE
	Why?

			WALLY
	I'm in the middle of a net war with this guy
	Hacker.  Don't you love his name!  Like he's 
	the only hacker in the world.  The guys a total
	neuron.

Adrienne looks as though she's about to burst into tears again.

			ADRIENNE
	Does that mean you can't help me?	

			WALLY
	No!  No!  I'll help you Addy.  We'll figure a
	way out of this.  I need more information though.
	Topper!

Yo!   That's me!

			TOPPER
	At your service totally sly guy!

			WALLY
	Find out all you can about this Krak trash.

			TOPPER
	In a nano second fellow intellect!

Wally turns to Adrienne.

			WALLY 
	What was Les's last name?

			ADRIENNE
	Donovan.

			WALLY
	And everything about this guy Les Donovan
	that got himself wa- killed.  Then download
	it to my study base.

			TOPPER
	In a flash and I'm kickin' ass.

Wally turns back to Adrienne.

			WALLY
	While Top's doing that I'm going to start laying
	down a security grid around you and erase you
	from all local monitors.  I'll put an Mrat on you 
	too and link it back to an HAI that will be linked
	to your locater.  You got a type III locater?

			ADRIENNE
	It's at home.

			WALLY
	You can take one of my spares.  The HAI will 
	watch your back.

Adrienne stands and gives Wally a big hug and kiss.  All right dude!

Wally turns red.

			ADRIENNE				
	Thanks Wally.  You're truly a life saver.
							
			WALLY
	Hey, anything for my adopted little sister.

Little sister!  Right.

An embarrassed Wally returns to his computer console.  Adrienne 
curls up on the couch and falls asleep.

LOCATION - LAS - WALLY'S WORLD

VISUAL SCAN - Wally's dressed for war, man! Net war! Net war! He is rockin' in leather pants, Demistriker knee high boots, leather biker jacket and leather skull cap! Addy's standing behind him and she's ready to get it on! Er, with the net... war... thing. She's got leather pants on too and this fine looking leather halter. If I wasn't an AI and if Wally wasn't my friend and creator I'd... never mind.

EM Scan - Electromagnetic fields indicate a totally torqued aura.

The dude is fired up! Hacker launched another viral attack at our cell again. He tried to shutdown the security grid but I was there in flash kicking ass. I brought down all the hard links to the net and steel shelled the cell. We just got the backdoors on line and we're puking into the net like a geyser of necrotic neurons. We're gonna find that som-a-bitch and-


			WALLY
	Topper!

Whoa that's me.

			TOPPER
	Yes wired one!

			WALLY
	The net mask is on!  Hacker doesn't see us.

Wally flips over to holo interface and starts moving ghostly controls in
three dimensional space.   Addy starts to kneed Wally's shoulders.  He pretends 
not to notice, but smiles.

			WALLY
	So he wants to fuck with my cell, huh?

			TOPPER
	That was the command sub packet I found
	in the virus I captured.  I peeled that little
	fucker like a grape!  Uh, sorry Addy.

			ADDY
	That's all right  Top.  I've heard those words
	before.

			WALLY
	Hacker screwed up.  He's got one of his 
	HAI's sitting by monitoring us. He wants to
	make sure the cell goes down.

			ADDY
	Do you think they're doing this to get at 
	me?

			WALLY
	Could be.  I don't know.  Hacker and I've
	been going at it for a few years now.  Could
	be he just wants to fuck with me.

			ADDY
	Or it could be Krak hired Hacker to get me out
	of here.

			WALLY	
	It doesn't matter Addy.  No one's getting in here
	with out me letting them.  THERE!

			TOPPER
	Awesome!

			ADDY
	What!?  What happened?

		  	TOPPER
	Wally just tagged Hacker's HAI and hit him with
	a net dump.  It's running like a scared rabbit right back to 
	HACKER.

			WALLY
	Open up the netslam!  Shove it down the pipe!  
	I want it right behind that HAI.  

Oh this is gonna be good!  This is gonna be so good! Open!  FLUSH!

			TOPPER
	Netslam is activated.

			WALLY
	YEEEEHAAAWWW!   Hacker opened up the
	trapdoor for his HAI.  He's been slammed!

			ADDY
	What does that mean?

			WALLY
	About three gigabytes of virus's just dumped 
	into his system, PLUS a one megawatt power
	spike plus his environmentals are all screwed
	up!  He's taking a shower in a fridge right now.

			ADDY
	Shower?

			TOPPER
	Spark shower!

The three start laughing.

			TOPPER
	Fire alarms just went off in LAS.  Oh I think
	Hacker's going to be out of action for a while!

			WALLY
	Far out!  We won!  We beat that som-a-bitch.

Wally jumps up and grabs Addy and the begin to dance around the room.

			WALLY
	What did I tell you!  No one messes with me girl!
	No one get's in here unless I want them to!

The door hisses open to Wally's quarters.  A tall dark shadow in a long black 
cloak is framed there.  We all scream.  Wally and Addy clutch each other in 
terror.

Jack Ironwood steps out of the shadows.  The door hisses closed behind him.

			JACK
	Is that supposed to be funny?  I took a 
	shower this morning.

Wally falls back into his chair relieved that Jack is not the specter of death.  

			WALLY
	Jesus Jack you scared the shit out of me.
	I thought you were one of Hacker's goons.
	
Jack smiles.

			JACK
	Sorry.  I'm my own goon.

Addy slides behind Wally and eyes Jack suspiciously.

			JACK
	You're Dan Jenkins girl, aren't you?

			ADDY
	Yeah.

			JACK
	He's not going to like it very much you being
	down here.

			ADDY
	Yeah so.

Jack smiles an evil smile.

			JACK
	So I get no small amount of satisfaction
	from that.  You'll forgive me, but your
	father is an uptight screw head.

Addy smiles a coy smile.

			ADDY
	He means well, he's just really caught up
	in his job.

Jack turns his attention to Wally.

			JACK
	What can you tell me about some hacker named
	Hacker.  He must have a hell of an imagination.

			WALLY
	Well, right about now he's dunkin' his ass in a
	bucket of water.

			JACK
	English Wally.  What are you talking about?

			WALLY
	The grand slam!

			JACK
	You net slammed him!?

			WALLY
	Damn straight!

			JACK
	You gave him a three way?

			WALLY
	Viral, environmental, and electrical.  The
	alarms are going off all over the place down 
	on level eighteen.

			JACK
	Where?  

			Wally
	Corridor thirteen, no cell number, it's a masked
	cell.

Jack pops his ear piece and the microphone attached to his locator swings
in front of his mouth.

			JACK
	Connect me to Stryker priority Alpha one!  Hello?

Jack looks at Wally.

			JACK
	Why is my locater not working?

			WALLY
	We've got a steel shell on the cell.

			JACK
	Lift it.

Boy this Ironwood dude is sure pushy.

			WALLY
	Topper?

			TOPPER
	Done.

Jack turns away and speaks into his microphone.

			JACK
	Connect me to Lex Stryker priority Alpha one!...
	Stryker, this Ironwood.  Send every spare you got 	
	to LAS, level 18, corridor 13.  Our hacker is suffering
	burn out right now...  No a friend of mine hit him
	with a grand slam...  I guess he got careless...  Right
	I'll meet you down there.

Jack pops his ear piece and the microphone pulls back up over his head.
Jack points at Wally.

			JACK
	I owe you one son.  Think about what kind of 
	electronic toy you'd like and I'll get it for you.

Hey!  This guy ain't all bad.

			WALLY
	All right!  Thanks Jack.

Jack spins and exits the cell.  The two watch him go.

			ADDY
	He makes me nervous.

			WALLY
	Ah Jack's all right.  Let me tell you, if you're
	ever in real trouble, Jack's the one to have on 
	your side.

Addy mulls this over as she contemplates the door in front of her.

LOCATION - LAS - WALLY'S WORLD

VISUAL SCAN - Wally's like totally relaxed at the net monitor. I can tell he's nervous though, cause he just keeps scanning. Addy's not around. I think she went out for some covert shopping.

EM Scan - Electromagnetic fields indicates major mellowness.


			WALLY
	It's too quiet Top!

			TOPPER
	Like... for what?

			WALLY
	They didn't nail Hacker.  He's out about I know it.
	He had to have backup systems... a place to hide.

			TOPPER
	And you havn't scanned him.

			WALLY
	No.  He has to be masked.  He's being real
	careful.

			TOPPER
	Maybe you can ID his mask program and disassemble
	it.

			WALLY
	I've been trying to track down anything that looks like
	a mask, but there's a lot of crap out on the net.  I think he's
	floating a lot of digital camoflouge out there.

			TOPPER
	What do you think he's up to?

			WALLY
	I know what he's up to

			TOPPER
	What?

			WALLY
	No good.

			TOPPER
	Oh.
Wally yawns and stumbles out of his chair toward the bathroom. Most AI's don't worry. Wally programmed me so I can. Now I'm worrying about Hacker and my least favorite word... revenge.
