Amouraq, Part 8

EXT. NYMPH GATHERING. DUSK.

Stephen and Emily are starting to get tired. Stephen notices that the sun is setting.

STEPHEN

It’s almost sunset. We

might have to deal with

creatures in the dark.

EMILY

Not the complete dark.

(points to the sky)

Luminious minimus!

A faint light like that of a nightlight glows around them.

EMILY

I don’t think this will

get us noticed.

STEPHEN

Look, the sun’s about to

go down.

As the sun disappears, they stand and watch it. Once it is dark, they can see a faint red glow in the distance.

STEPHEN

Someone else is here. You

think it might be Xavier?

EMILY

Let’s find out.

They cautiously creep closer and closer to the glow. When they get close enough to see the scene but not be heard, they see that the glow is a magical fire. Five fairy-looking women(NYMPHS)wearing sexy Roman clothing with varying colors are sitting around the fire. They all look haughty and impatient, as if they have been waiting there for a long time.

EMILY

(whispers)

Nymphs. They are the

spirit of things that

exist in nature

STEPHEN

(also whispers)

Are there evil nymphs?

ALL NYMPHS

Yes!

The nymphs fly without wings over to where they are and encircle them. They are all about ten feet tall. They simply point at Emily and Stephen, and the pair gets tied to a couple of tall trees. The nymphs all introduce themselves not as a friendly gesture but more of a measure of intimidation.

NYMPH OF HATE

I am the Nymph of Hate!

NYMPH OF ABUSE

I am the Nymph of Abuse.

NYMPH OF DESTRUCTION

I am the Nymph of Destruction.

NYMPH OF TORTURE

I am the Nymph of Torture!

NYMPH OF MURDER

I am the Nymph of Murder!

NYMPH OF TORTURE

Too bad Emily’s knowledge

and Stephen’s dumb luck

won’t save them now! The

only ones who can kill

nymphs are other nymphs.

(The nymphs all laugh.)

NYMPH OF MURDER

Any last words?

Stephen racks his brain and quickly thinks of a plan.

STEPHEN

You’re right; you’ve got

us beat. A victory like this

should only be performed by the

most powerful one. Tell me,

which one of you is that?

NYMPH OF DESTRUCTION

That’s easy! I am!

NYMPH OF MURDER

You wish! Murder is the most

evil thing that exists, easily!

NYMPH OF HATE

And what is the inspiration

of murder? Hate. I am the

most powerful.

NYMPH OF ABUSE

No, the most powerful one

is responsible for the

cruelest deaths, and that

would be me.

NYMPH OF TORTURE

Actually, torture is much

crueler than abuse, so I’m

the most-

NYMPH OF DESTRUCTION

What are you talking about?

Torture and abuse are practically

the same thing.

NYMPH OF ABUSE

You’re just jealous because

you’re the least powerful.

Ooh, you knock down buildings!

So what!

NYMPH OF MURDER

Nothing is worse than death!

NYMPH OF TORTURE

That’s not true!

NYMPH OF MURDER NYMPH OF TORTURE

I think the whole Everyone knows there

point of evil is are things much more

to bring good to its powerful than death!

end, and I do that! Death can be a release.

NYMPH OF DESTRUCTION NYMPH OF ABUSE

I don’t care what you Don’t you talk to me

say, you’re nothing but like that! No one even

talk! start!

NYMPH OF HATE

You’re all a bunch of dumb

bitches! The Queen of Evil

put me in charge!

NYMPH OF ABUSE NYMPH OF MURDER

What did you call me? She put me in charge!

They all become so outraged at each other that they conjure up a giant ball of light and throw it at each other. All of the nymphs are instantly destroyed! Stephen and Emily fall down to the ground, though not as hard as before.

EMILY

How did you know that

would work?

STEPHEN

The minds of the corrupt are

easily manipulated. Besides,

you never really know if

something’s gonna work, so

you’ve got to trust your

instincts. Plus, you’ve got

to remember that evil shows

no loyalty and is driven by

greed.

(beat)

Does that mean I destroyed

these evil things from the

world?

EMILY

No, they are born again

in the heart of evil

doers.

STEPHEN

So, technically they can

never die and can come

back to life?

EMILY

Hmm, perhaps one day

evil will be erased

from the earth, but yes,

they can come back, but

not while we’re here.

Let’s keep going.

STEPHEN

Yeah, I don’t think we have

much time left.
