Amouraq, Part 10

INT. WARLOCK’S LAIR. EVENING.

Stephen and Emily land on their stomachs in a small, completely white room. When they sit up, they find themselves surrounded by ten angry WARLOCKS in brown, hooded robes, including the head warlock, ORAGOC.

EMILY

(without thinking)

Warlocks!

ORAGOC

Seize them!

They lunge for them, but Stephen and Emily roll out of their grasp (though they roll in opposite directions). Most of the warlocks were after Stephen, and while they try to grab him, Stephen pulls out his gun. Oragoc melts the gun with his wand. Stephen tries to move his legs and finds that he can’t. As the warlocks grab him, Stephen desperately looks around for Emily but can’t find her. He shouts as they tie him up.

STEPHEN

Emily! Emily! Emily!

He gets no response, and as they drag him out of the room, Stephen worries for her safety.

INT. XAVIER’S OFFICE. EVENING

The room looks like a normal office. It has mahogany walls with filing cabinets lined against it. It also has a dark brown desk with a computer, several papers, and even a green potted plant. A sleek leather chair is turned around. The warlocks drag Stephen in and shove him in front of the desk. His expression is defiant.

ORAGOC

The cose is here, Master.

The chair sharply turns around to reveal XAVIER (a handsome man around Stephen’s age with slick, jet black hair, hollow brown eyes, a crisp black suit, and a charming but mischievous smile on his face.

STEPHEN

Xavier Ryder!

XAVIER

My, my, aren’t we clever?

Oragoc, fetch me my ladies.

Oragoc and a couple other warlocks leave the room and return a second later with a group of scantily dressed women.

STEPHEN

Do you really need your

whores around to watch

this?

XAVIER

I’m keeping them with me

for their protection since

that bitch could be anywhere.

STEPHEN

Emily got away!

XAVIER

Yes, but don’t get too

excited, Mister Knight. She’s

a foolish little sorceress,

and we’ll find her.

STEPHEN

I hope you didn’t set more

of your stupid booby traps!

I mean, if a simple cose

like me could outsmart them…

Xavier jabs his finger towards Stephen, who instantly feels a sharp pain in his stomach. He doesn’t want to give Xavier the satisfaction of hearing him cry out in pain, but he can’t help cringing a little. Xavier’s warlocks and bimbos laugh at him.

XAVIER

Take off the ropes; he

can’t escape with you

blocking the only exit.

The warlocks do as they’re told. Stephen boldly stands up. Xavier swishes his fingers, and Stephen eerily floats in the air.

XAVIER

How is it that a stupid

cose could help defeat

some of the most powerful

magical creatures on the

planet? How could you

escape and make it here

without even getting a

scar on your face? Why do

you do it? You could turn

your back now and escape

unscathed. This isn’t your

war. Go back to the United

States and don’t worry

about a thing; Amouraq will

be, ah, perfectly safe in

my hands.

STEPHEN

Never! I will not ever turn

down a cry for help. Besides,

I couldn’t let an evil bastard

like you hurt an innocent

person or tear down an innocent

country! I’d rather die here

and now than collaborate with

you!

XAVIER

Then so be it!

Xavier, quite livid, points his hand at Stephen. A bright cloud of green electricity surrounds Stephen, and he feels a pain so unbearable that he can’t help crying out intensely. After a minute or so of this pain, Xavier flings Stephen against the wall, and Stephen lands on his bottom on the floor. Stephen is too weak to stand up at the moment. Xavier turns to his bimbos smiling knowingly, and they smirk back. The warlocks softly chuckle.

XAVIER

This is my favorite part;

this is the part where I

kill you. This is how you’re

going to die: you’ll-

STEPHEN

(weak but brave)

I know! All of my organs and

bones will slowly and painfully

be turned into liquid until

there’s nothing left but a

pile of muck. Then you’ll

make sure that no one ever

finds my remains just like

you did with all of your other

victims that you felt like

hurting just for the hell of it.

XAVIER

Ooh, Emily did her homework!

Well, too bad Emily won’t be

able to save your sorry ass

this time!

STEPHEN

You’re sick!

XAVIER

That’s nice.

STEPHEN

At least I can die with

dignity!

XAVIER

And so you shall! Any last

words?

STEPHEN

You’ll never win, Xavier!

XAVIER

Watch me!

Xavier raises his hand. There is a moment of anticipation from him, the bimbos, and the warlocks. Stephen doesn’t want to believe that this is the end but is preparing for it. Right when Xavier is about to execute his deadly spell, all of his warlocks and bimbos disappear into thin air! Stephen is confused, and Xavier is bewildered.
