“Pubba. Pubba? No, I’m not. I will duck. I will run. I will hide. I will hide. No! Ah! Yeah.” — Gus

“A dog! I’ll name him… Dog. ‘Oh, shucks, baby.’ ‘You want to see your mother, I reckon.’ ‘Yes, I–‘” — Gus

“Pubba! Pubba! Can we live on a raft in the river, like Huck? What about out there? Why not? You said when I’m old enough, you’ll tell me. So? I’m seven. So? I saw her today. Mama. She was pretty, but she didn’t have nubbins like me. How do you know?” — Gus

“Wow. What is it? Mama. Growl… duck. I thought it was her! You can! I don’t trust you. You don’t tell me everything. You think I’m too little!” — Gus

“I don’t wanna. It’s a hole. What’s the Sick? Why’d you say you lived alone? I’m scared. It’s okay to lie? Mama.” — Gus

“Pubba. Pubba! Pubba, what took you so long? I heard a scream. I didn’t like it. Pubba! Wake up. Pubba! Pubba? Pubba? Pubba! Pubba! Wake up, Pubba. What happened? What was her name? When you get better, we can look for her. I will duck. I will run. I will hide. Cross the fence. Never ever. Pinky swear. But you make the breakfast. A plate? Eggs. Then you’ll tell me more?” — Gus

“Hello, ducks. Pubba! Pubba! I did it! I crossed– Pubba? Pubba? He, hoo… you should have saw it. Bad people were everywhere. I thought they was gonna take me and dog, but dog scared them away for good, didn’t you, dog? Rabbit, you’re on garden duty. Goat, you need to keep your birds off the peas. We don’t lose anymore. And me and dog will do the syrup and the water. And remember, do not cross the fence. Now go. Yes! No! Stupid weeds. Stupid weasel thing! Dumb goat! You! I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I’m sorry! Pubba. Hmm. Colorado. I’m coming for you, Birdie.” — Gus

“Hide. If I see a human, I will hide. If I see a human, I will hide. If I see a human, I will hide. Let me go! Leave me alone! Stay back. Shit. My Pubba did, and he’s gonna be back here any minute now, so you best git! He’s bigger than you. Put that down! I don’t talk to bad people! No, no, no, no, no! No booms! No booms! I said go away! Go back to the fire where you belong.” — Gus

“What was that boom? What do you want? Shoo! Hey, you put them back! They don’t belong to you! Told you, my Pubba’s coming back and he’s gonna run you away. I said go. Where’s Colorado? Which way? There are no kids like me. I’m the only one left. Nothing. My mama. What if he were wrong? What if he were wrong? Big Man! Big Man! Take me!” — Gus

Jepp

“Know how much your antlers are worth to a poacher? I counted three points. Jackpot. Thought I saw every type of mutant half-breed critter thing out there. I never saw a deer kid. You forgot this. Come here! The shit? Speak. You talk? They don’t make ’em bigger than me. That your old lady? Them two in the field were bad. Most of them are. Take it nice. You shouldn’t set fires in the daytime, little man. Your daddy didn’t teach you that? Saw the smoke 20 miles off. How long you been here?”

“God damn it. It’s called a gun. Makes people disappear. I was thinking about turning you in… but I’m not gonna. I’m an asshole, but even I got limits. You like those sweets so much, you ought to plant beets. Mix up your sugar intake. That should keep them off the peas. You’re using that scarecrow inside. You want to set him out here, reposition him every few days. Birds ain’t dumb. You want to rotate this crop too. Peas eat up all the nitrogen. Soil will be shot in a few years. Your daddy keep a… a tarp or anything. What killed your folks? They get the Sick? He leave you with a name? Yeah. Yeah, you keep that edge, Sweet Tooth. Just remember, good poachers don’t miss. Ain’t close. Stay here, little man. People out there hunt kids like you. Don’t make it easy for them. That’s what he told you? There are others. Out there. What’s in Colorado? The Preserve? You go out there alone, they’ll have your head mounted to a wall by morning. So long, Sweet Tooth.”

Pubba

“I’ll be right back. Ah! Yeah! Aw… what? What’d you say? You Gus, me Pubba. Happy birthday! Okay, open this thing up. Let’s see what we got. What do you think it is? Books. Yeah. Let’s see. Wait for it. You’re gonna scare the fish. If I hear a growl… If I hear a voice… if I see a human? You’ll get it. All right. Try again. If I see a human. You’ll get it. All right. Try again. Here I go! You know how humans have blood? Trees have sap. Be careful, it’s gonna be hot. All right. This’ll be loud for you, buddy. Let’s cover your ears. It’s a bird. It’s a big, big bird. Okay? All right, it’s all right. All right. From now on, no more fires during the day. It’s too dangerous.”

“Yeah! I worked very hard on this. Yeah, it’s a dog. So what do you want to name it? You know, that’s the perfect name for a dog. Yeah.”

“Hey, I’m here. I got you. It’s just mother nature, Gus, washing her world clean. There are no rivers inside the fence, Gus, you know that. Well, I told you we can’t go out there. Because I said so. I know what I said. So what?”

“Once upon a time, bad people ruled the earth. Doing what they wanted, taking from the planet. Just like those ants. They were greedy things, self-destructive, only out for themselves. So nature made them very sick, and wiped away as many as she could. And then a miracle happened. Your kind. They called them hybrids. No one knows where you came from or how. But the people who were left feared you. They were meaner now, angrier. They didn’t like you because you were different. So nature set the rest of the Earth on fire. And now it burns forever. But some bad people are still out there, Gus, in the flames, waiting. It’s my job to make sure they never get in. And it’s your job to live a full life, and be happy, and be kind. Who? Yeah, that wasn’t your mother, Gus. ‘Cause your mother’s gone, Gus. That’s how I know.”

“Happy Birthday. You’ll figure it out. Ow! Is that a gift a mistake? What did I tell you? What did I tell you?1 What did I tell you? Someone could have seen you! I heard something! What did I tell you?! I told you, she’s gone! It’s my fault. I told you not to be afraid. I thought I could trust you. No, we need to trust each other! You are too little, Gus. And you just proved it.”

“Hello? Oh, no. All right. Hey! Don’t come any closer! Feel better if I didn’t. Well, they’re not here. You better look someplace else. Who said I had a camp? It’s not a place for an unarmed woman. Don’t move. She didn’t come through here. You should get back on the road before it gets dark. What’s it like out there? What about the Sick? Yeah, well, maybe it caused them. I’ve lived here alone by myself for nine years and… and 17 weeks and… three days! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey, where’d you go? Stay back! Stay back! Hey! He marked us.”

“Gus, son, get in. I said, get in the cubby. It’s not a hole. You know how foxes hide out during the day in their little fox house in the ground? It’s, uh… grownup stuff. Sometimes it’s okay to bend the truth if it helps someone you love. Understand? I know, but I promise you, if you hide in that cubby and you be very quiet, I’ll be back before the sun goes to bed. You can take your syrup. Remember what I said? That’s what you took from that conversation? No, I said don’t come out until you hear from me. I love you, Gus. And you’re not too little. Stay big for me. No!”

“I know. But you’re safe. You’re safe now. He won’t hurt you. I was doing the right thing. I was doing the right thing. There’s a good boy. You did the right thing. You did the right thing. You did this? Your mother… she was like me, Gus. Or she was better than me. She would be so proud of you. You were her joy. You were her life. You always will be. Life. We were separated. So I brought you here. Birdie. Yeah. Her name was Birdie. If I hear a growl… if I hear a voice… if I see a human… okay. What don’t we do? Ever. Okay, promise me, Gus. Hey. I’m the luckiest dad in the world. You know why? Because I got to spend the last nine years with a very, very special boy. You. In a world we got to build together. I couldn’t ask for anything else. I’m tired. You know what could wake me up, though? Breakfast. Will you go make us some? And you watch me, so you know how, okay? What do we start with? What food? Yeah. See that? Yeah. Yeah, I’ll tell you… everything.”

Dr. Singh

“Don’t forget– mwah! This is the third-best doctor here, aren’t you? Joking. We’re gonna take your temperature. Tell me about your symptoms, when you first– ugh! Damn it. I’ll get it tomorrow. I love you. Bye. Enjoy your lollipop. We’ll see you later. Come on. What the…”

Rani Singh

“The turkey, I know. Mwah! You forgot, didn’t you? Bye.”

Doctor

“So what you’re telling me is that your crocodile’s name is Croc. We’re gonna have you out of here in no time, and get you to enjoy this lovely weather we’re having.”

Doctor 2

“How long did this take?”

Doctor 3

“Get the room sealed.”

Patient

“She was fine three days ago.”

TV Reporter

“We’re anticipating numbers not seen since the Black Plague. The H5G9 strain is now officially the deadliest virus in our lifetime.”

“They’re being called hybrids, unexplained phenomenon of animal-human babies being born…”

TV Reporter 2

“Part animal.”

TV Reporter 3

“Part human.”

TV Reporter 4

“What came first, the virus or the hybrids?”

TV Reporter 5

“Parents are pushing back on hospitals over the new law requiring hybrid testing.”

Passerby

“Sarah? Sarah! Sarah? Sarah? Afternoon! You mind lowering the gun? I’m just looking for someone. How long you been here? I realize how this looks, but I give you my word, I had no idea your camp was here. My sister went off in these mountains, a week and a half ago. I want to know if she made it through. The road’s the last place you want to be, friend. You haven’t gotten out much lately, huh? It sucks. No rules, no laws. Once the internet went down, it was over. Just tribes of people, scared. Fighting over whatever’s left. It slowed down, but it’s still out there. People think the hybrids caused it. Yeah, maybe. Any case, ain’t many of us left. So if you’re out here alone, isolated and whatnot… you probably aren’t in a company. Are you? In a company? Alone.”

Poacher 1

“Come on, buddy. I seen ya. Show yourself. You like that candy? When you poke your little head out, and I’ll put one right between your eyes. Come on. Come on. I told you! What did I tell you? I ain’t ever seen a deer one afore. He’s got a little shirt and everything. Yeah, older too. We take it to the lab? Yeah. It talked. I got you.”

Poacher 2

“I got him! Have a look! I got him! Yeah, me neither. Yeah. Hey, don’t he look bigger than the others? You thinking what I’m thinking? No, no, no, no, no. We bring him east. This one’s too special. Oh, did you hear that? Ah! Hey… hello. Um… we could share. Huh? Hey! No, no, no, no, no. Mm… okay, hey… it’s yours.”

Narrator

“This is a story… a story of a very special boy… …who found himself at the end of the world. But our story doesn’t begin here. We have to go back… …before the Great Crumble. Because it’s also the story of a doctor who was happy living a normal life. But there was nothing normal about the Sick. And life would never be normal again. You see, as the world slipped into chaos, something else was happening. Something… extraordinary. No one knows what came first, the hybrids or the virus. But that question would become the biggest mystery of our lifetime. This is a story about a very special boy… a boy by the name of Gus. Some stories start at the beginning. Ours begins here.”

“As much as the father tried to keep the dangers of the world out… the outside world had a way of sneaking in.”

“That night, the father decided that some of the boy’s questions… were just too hard to answer.”

“By his tenth winter, the boy was now the man of the house. With hard work came harder play. As his antlers grew… so did his imagination. Sometimes all a boy has is his imagination.”

“The boy broke his father’s rules slowly… and then, all at once. Some stories start at the beginning. Gus’s story begins here.”
