Bunyip Whispers in The Dreamtime

Preface

(DISTANT CAR SOUND BUILDS UP GRADUALLY)

Narrator

Bruce is completely oblivious to the blur of trees caught in his headlights. His mind is out of control as his ute tears along - a red streak shooting through the dark Queensland countryside. Enveloped in a euphoria of drugs and alcohol - he presses down harder on the accelerator.(SOUND OF INCREASE ENGINE) Harder. FASTER. His unseeing eyes miss the stop sign at crossroads atop a hill. The bright red ute swoops off the hump and becomes airborne.

Bruce

Wheeeeee!

Narrator

Cried Bruce. The first Anna and the Bunyip knew about it was the roar of his engine and the screeching of brakes.... (SOUND EFFECTS MIMIC WHAT THE NARRATOR SAYS. SILENCE /CRASH/ SILENCE / REACTION FROM BIRDS AND ANIMALS...NIGHTNOISE)

Narrator

The last thing Bruce thought he saw before losing consciousness, was a bunyip.
