Hour 4 Mini Challange: The Meet Up 

William Shakespeare's The Phantom of Menace by Ian Doescher and Dream Fall by Amy Plum 

Qiu Gon Jinn meets Cata 

Cata screams "help" as she runs, her feet pounding on the empty street hard and fast. The red eyed monster is after her. It is dark and silent except for the sound of her own scream. There is a building up the road just a bit. There are lights, glowing lights of red, blue, and green. It's not so far. "I can make it." She softly whispers to herself. 

As she reaches the building's door she hears voices within. Finally, she has found some help. She isn't alone. She runs into the building, following the light and the voices. Hoping she is not making a mistake and trading one danger for another. 

The halls are long and there are three trails of light down each side. One at the top, one at the bottom, and one in the center. They light up in a cascading lumination, leading her down the hall. The lights, they are carefully and quietly telling her in the direction she must go. She slows her pace and looks over her shoulder. She doesn't see the red-eyed monster but she can hear his heavy steps and hard breathing. He can't be too far behind. 

Umph. Suddenly Cata falls to the ground with a hard fast thud. She opens her mouth to scream but nothing comes out. She is terrified but she must look up. She needs to know what has stopped her in her tracks. Slowly she turns her head and eyes up towards the where she was just standing. There is a man holding his finger over his lips telling her to "shh". He is tall wearing strange clothes. He is a few years older than her, maybe more. It's really hard to tell in the just the dim of the lights. He has long hair and a beard. He seems to look safe. He is holding out his hand for her to grab, to help her up. Cata grabs a hold and allows this stranger to help her to her feet. She doesn't know him but in his presence, she feels safe. She knows she can trust him. 

This stranger starts to lead her down the hall. Carefully stepping not to make any unnecessary sound. The door to a room is just before them, about 10 feet. They are close. Close to what? Cata does not know but she feels it is safety. Just need to make it to the door. 

Step by step they are are getting closer... 8 feet, 6 feet, 4 feet, 2 feet, the doorknob. Just as Kata is about to grab on she is yanked by her waist and thrown down the ground. Again she looks up, this time she sees the red eyed monster. She wants to scream, to get up, to run, but she can't. She is frozen in place by fear. She is frozen in the place by this neverending nightmare. She is considering how to move, what to do as she hears a strange sound. She whirring sound. 

Cata scans the hallway to find the stranger holding a sword of green light. He is standing in front of the red-eyed monster. "no!" she yells, "run!" she screams. The Stranger does not listen. He stands there, between her and the red-eyed monster, ready to defend her, but was he ready to die like the others?

Hour 6 Mini Challenge:  Show us the weather. 

The wind is blowing outside for a slight breeze. Other than that its warm and muggy and a little cloudy. I decided to show the tree and the leaves I see outside.
