A chapter in the book British Women

The Reckoning.

by Tomes Johnston

Amanda and her daughter are British prisoners in a European Prisoner of war camp. Amanda is an old flame of the Commandant and says that he is Samantha's father. Commandant Koch's men want to rape Samantha, while Koch is trying to protect her.

VAN DAMME:
(ADDRESSING THE AUDIENCE WITH SOUNDS OF BATTLE IN THE BACKGROUND).
It all happened so fast. We didn’t have a chance. The rebels somehow got the co-ordinates of this camp. Maybe one of the prisoners managed to get some information out. I thought that we intercepted the messages that Diana was trying to get out. She will never get messages out again, that’s for sure.
 
(THE NOISE OF BATTLE GETS CLOSER).
 
VAN DAMME (CONT):
It’s all over for me now… I’m sure of that. I have too many enemies to survive this, so it will be a fight to the death for me. I will just have to make sure that I face death with dignity.
 
(HE TURNS HIS HEAD IN SHOCK AS THE DOOR IS KICKED IN. REBELS ENTER THE ROOM WITH SAMANTHA LEADING THEM).
 
VAN DAMME (CONT):
(HE RAISES HIS PISTOL AND FIRES, BUT ALL WE HEAR IS SEVERAL KLICKS).
What?...
 
SAMANTHA:
I took the liberty of emptying it. The tables have turned, Van Damme… The rebels are victorious all over the United Kingdom. You’re the prisoner now.
 
VAN DAMME:
What about Commandant Koch?
 
SAMANTHA:
We are sending him home to tell them that the UK will never bend to the European Union. You’ll not be so lucky. You see, Commandant Koch has influence and he gave his word that he would deter any further invasion… You have no such use to us, and you have to answer for war crimes.
 
REBEL SOLDIER:
What do we do now, Commander?
 
SAMANTHA:
We will convene a war crimes tribunal, and Lieutenant Van Damme here will be the first to be executed.
 
VAN DAMME:
Do I have no chance to prove my innocence?
 
SAMANTHA:
No! As the ranking officer here I’ll be the judge.
 
VAN DAMME:
Samantha, please…
 
SAMANTHA:
It’s Commander James now.
 
VAN DAMME:
I have a family…
 
SAMANTHA:
You should have thought of that before you shot Diana… Take him away boys.
