Temca Academy, Part 12

BEGIN OBJECT MONSTER MONTAGE

INT. TOCI’S ROOM.AFTERNOON.

The four gather up photos they have taken and compare it to the school’s website.

EXT. DOG HOUSE. AFTERNOON.

The four go to cut down a tree. A campus security guard stops them. They pretend to comply. George lights up a cigarette and puts it out on the tree, which bursts into flames. The four shrug at the security guard.

INT. WOMAN 1’S ROOM. NIGHT.

A woman is in her room watching something on her laptop. The four walk in and smash her second radio. The woman gets mad, but when Anielle gives her a wad of cash, she gets over it pretty quickly.

INT. MAN 1’S ROOM. MORNING.

A man runs around his room, being chased by a floating piece of foil. The four go into his room and destroy a picture of a professional broom football team. Anielle and Joshua’s hand touch, and they very quickly pull it away.

EXT. CAFETERIA COURTYARD. AFTERNOON.

A girl eating lunch is suddenly confronted by a mylar balloon. Joshua, Anielle, and George destroy the botanical garden. Toci stifles some tears. George pops the balloon, which he thought would ease her fears but instead makes her freak out more and run away. The four shrug.

INT. ANIELLE’S ROOM. NIGHT.

Anielle is chatting with Peter and looks pretty bored. She looks out the window and sees a couple of guys playing magical Frisbee. George and Joshua intercept the Frisbee and destroy it. The boys run after George and Joshua to kick their butts. Joshua stops by the window and gives Anielle a thumbs up. Anielle laughs. Peter clears his throat to get her attention.

EXT. KOI POND. MORNING.

Two girls chat by a magical koi pond, admiring the fish. Toci comes by and drops in some plants. The fish come up dead. All three girls cry.

INT. LIBRARY. EVENING.

Anielle studies in the library when a vampire floats up to a nearby window. Several people run away, screaming, but Anielle simply picks up a nearby book, puts in some garlic, and shoves it in the vampire’s mouth. The vampire falls with a thud, and Anielle continues to study.

EXT. CAMPUS MAIN OFFICE. LATE AFTERNOON.

Anielle and Joshua are walking along the path when they see Professor Medina. Medina sees a bee and screams. Joshua kills the bee. Anielle sees the snake they were looking for in the grass, grabs Joshua’s alcohol, and smashes the snake with it. Anielle smiles smugly and leaves.

 

END MONTAGE.

 

INT. COMMON ROOM. EVENING.

Toci is lying on the couch trying not to fall asleep. Anielle is doing magical cat’s cradle. Joshua tries to watch a magical Christmas special but glares at Anielle. Anielle notices and smirks.

TOCI:

Oh my God! I’m so bored!

ANIELLE:

Be glad we’re bored. In the

last three months, we got rid

of all but four fear mongers.

When we get back, we’ll take care

of the human ones.

JOSHUA:

When I’m on break, you can’t

destroy my liquor bottles! It’s

been forever since I had a drink.

ANIELLE:

You’re two weeks sober. You

should be proud.

JOSHUA:

Why do you care if I drink or

not? Does Sir Pompous Dorkington…?

ANIELLE:

Stop calling him that!

JOSHUA:

Does he not approve of you

hanging out with a wino?

ANIELLE:

If someone didn’t stop you, then

something serious would happen.

You should be thankful.

Joshua uses his scepter to destroy her cat’s cradle strings.

ANIELLE:

Oh, real mature!

JOSHUA:

If you’re bored, you can read

Toci’s plant book.

TOCI:

Hey, yeah!

Anielle brings out the book and glares at Joshua. Joshua grins and leaves. Toci laughs.

ANIELLE:

What?

TOCI:

It’s so cute! Peter is coming,

and neither of you are happy

about it, so you’re bickering.

ANIELLE:

Are you still on that? Joshua

hates me, and I’m quite content

with Peter coming.

TOCI:

Quite content? How romantic!

ANIELLE:

Will you stop! I don’t like

Joshua! I admit, I used to think

about him shirtless a lot, but

that doesn’t mean I like him! He

may have a better body than Peter,

but that doesn’t mean I secretly

lust for him! And yes, I think

Joshua is really brave for choosing

a career that risks his life to

save others, but that doesn’t mean

I like him. Yes, it’s been exciting

hanging out with him, but true love

is about contentment. It makes no

sense to be attracted to the boy who

is more handsome, nice, and

interesting! Get that idea out of

your head! I wouldn’t wanna be his

girlfriend! He’s totally wrong for

me! So, I think I’ve made myself

clear; I don’t like him, and tonight,

I’m going to have a wonderful time

with my boyfriend, Joshua. I mean

Peter! Shut up!

George enters triumphantly.

GEORGE:

I did it! I killed one of the fear

monger dudes! No, Toci, he wasn’t

cute. He was one of the dorks from

your classes, Anielle.

ANIELLE:

Good. Those classes keep getting

cut short.

TOCI:

One of my friends from my herbology

class is dropping out because she

was too scared to return to class.

GEORGE:

Yeah, two guys from our broom

football team dropped out. It’s

the highest drop out rate in

Temca history. Oh, you guys are

coming to tonight’s game, right?

ANIELLE:

You know I can’t. Peter doesn’t

like crowds or noise.

GEORGE:

No! You gotta come! I think one

of the cheerleaders is a fear

monger!

TOCI:

They do seem to be targeting a

lot of football players. We have

that in common.

GEORGE:

Yeah, plus I notice they’re not

an even number anymore. When they

do the pyramid, one of them just

hangs back and shakes her pompoms.

ANIELLE:

(sighs)

Okay, I’ll be there.

Temca Academy, Part 11

INT. JOSHUA’S ROOM. LATE AFTERNOON.

Anielle steps over a lot of junk and knocks on his door. She is surprised when TERRENCE (an athletic African-American man with glasses and a small afro) answers the door.

TERRENCE:

Can I help you?

ANIELLE:

Is Joshua there?

TERRENCE:

Hey Joshua! You finally got a

pretty girl to come to your room!

(to Anielle)

Come in.

Anielle is surprised to see Joshua without his shirt on, sprawled lazily on a small, circular chair. He is drinking a bottle of Bermuda rum, which he stows away when he sees Anielle.

JOSHUA:

What do you want?

ANIELLE:

Our spy cameras are here.

TERRENCE:

Spy cameras?

ANIELLE:

For, um, photography class.

JOSHUA:

Yeah, you know it’s part of

my Peace Officer Training!

ANIELLE:

You want to be a peace officer?

JOSHUA:

Crime solver, actually. And no,

I won’t drink on the job when I’m

there, okay?

ANIELLE:

Let’s not argue. We have to work

together for…photography class, so

let’s try not make things worse off.

TERRENCE:

Can I take your photography class?

JOSHUA:

No, it’s full.

ANIELLE:

Anyways, here’s your camera.

As she starts to hand it to him in the chair, he stands up to get it. As he stands, Anielle’s hand hits his crotch.

JOSHUA AND ANIELLE:

Oh, sorry!

They are quiet for a moment.

ANIELLE:

I gotta go!

As she rushes out, she opens the door harder than necessary, which is effective in whacking Toci and George.

INT. ANIELLE’S ROOM. EVENING.

Anielle walks in the room, and she sees Circe hanging off the side of her bed upside down.

ANIELLE:

So, can I finally declare you

legally insane?

Circe does her obnoxious laugh.

CIRCE:

I’m trying to think.

ANIELLE:

Then why would you…forget it.

Joshua appears in the doorway.

CIRCE:

Woah!

She rolls off the bed and slinks over to him.

CIRCE:

I’m Circe, and yes, I’m single.

JOSHUA:

I believe you.

Circe looks offended.

JOSHUA:

Anielle, my roommate went

outside, and I heard him scream.

ANIELLE:

Okay, let’s get the others and go.

CIRCE:

Where are we going?

ANIELLE:

Look! Something shiny!

CIRCE:

(looks around)

Where?

Joshua and Anielle run out of the room while Circe eagerly looks around.

 

EXT. DOG HOUSE. EVENING.

The four run out and see the courtyard is eerily lit. They hear Terrence scream, and they run to it. Right by Toci’s plants, they can hear it the loudest, but they still cannot see him.

GEORGE:

Terrence, buddy, where are ya?

TERRENCE (O.S.)

Help! Oh, God, help! Help!

JOSHUA:

We’re trying! Where are you?

TERRENCE (O.S.)

I don’t know! Get me out!

Anielle sees loose dirt below them.

ANIELLE:

We’re on top of him!

TOCI:

Again? I mean, for the first time?

GEORGE:

Let’s dig him out!

They pull out their scepters and magically uproot the dirt. Under all the dirt is a coffin. The four drag it out, and the boys pry it open. Terrence rushes out of it, gasping and visibly shaken.

ANIELLE:

Who did this to you?

TERRENCE:

I don’t know, but my worst fear

was being buried alive!

GEORGE:

Let’s go to the school healer.

This time, it’s not a broom

football injury!

George and Toci help Terrence up and bring him away. Anielle and Joshua feel awkward being alone together. A bat flies by and gives Anielle a note.

ANIELLE:

It’s from Peter!

(reads aloud)

Dear Anielle, good news! I

landed the new account! I’m

going to be super busy again,

but I will come visit before

the semester is over. Yours

truly, Peter.

JOSHUA:

Yours truly?

ANIELLE:

What’s wrong with that?

JOSHUA:

Why didn’t he say love?

ANIELLE:

He loves me! He doesn’t need

to say it!

JOSHUA:

If you say so. I need a drink!

ANIELLE:

Another one?

JOSHUA:

If you get to make bad decisions,

then so do I.

Joshua leaves. Anielle stands there looking a little confused.

Temca Academy, Part 10

to Magical Media.

INT. ANIELLE’S ROOM. NIGHT.

Annielle is on her bed reading a Magical Business Management book, but she finds it hard to concentrate on it because Circe is listening to some girly pop and dancing, trying to look cool but is way too uncoordinated. At one point, she crashes into Anielle.

ANIELLE:

Um, ow!

CIRCE:

Oh, sorry! You’re so quiet

that I forgot you were here.

ANIELLE:

Yeah…can you put a muffling

spell on that music?

CIRCE:

But without the vibrations, how

will I feel it in my soul? It’s

part of my deep personality, this

song.

ANIELLE:

Deep? What is so deep about…

(imitates singer)

I like air pops! Pop! Pop! Pop!

CIRCE:

Don’t act like your taste in

music is so much better! Like,

the Temple of Isis.

(points to poster)

Their biggest hit was called

Find Yourself. What is that

song even about?

ANIELLE:

Finding yourself.

CIRCE:

Like if you get lost in the woods?

ANIELLE:

No. They’re saying that after you

you break up with someone, it

teaches you how to find a new

identity and have confidence in-

CIRCE:

That’s depressing!

ANIELLE:

Every time you stop doing one

annoying thing, you find two

more ways to annoy me!

CIRCE:

Fine. I’ll go do my homework.

Circe pouts and starts reading. A second later, she screams. Anielle gets up and looks around the room.

ANIELLE:

What happened?

CIRCE:

I got a paper cut!

ANIELLE:

That’s all?

CIRCE:

It really hurt!

ANIELLE:

Here! Take some pain potion.

Anielle tosses her a vial. She drinks it and feels instantly better.

CIRCE:

Ooh, look at all that blood!

She puts her finger in her mouth like it is a cocktail.

ANIELLE:

You know what, you can play

that music. I’m gonna go study

in the lounge.

She gathers her things and quickly leaves the room.

 

INT. COMMONROOM LOUNGE. NIGHT.

Anielle sees the light off and assumes no one is in there. She turns on the lights and sees Joshua in his uniform with a bottle of Yeti Vodka.

ANIELLE:

Oh, you’re here. I’ll go.

JOSHUA:

No, you can stay. I was just

taking my break here.

ANIELLE:

You didn’t drink that whole

bottle tonight, did you?

JOSHUA:

No! I have some self control!

Only half!

ANIELLE:

That doesn’t prove you have

control! You wanna prove it?

Put the bottle down.

JOSHUA:

Why should I?

ANIELLE:

You can’t do it, can you?

JOSHUA:

Oh, you don’t think so?

Joshua gets up and leaves the bottle there.

JOSHUA:

I’m done drinking for the night.

ANIELLE:

Good!

Joshua starts to leave. He finds it odd Anielle influenced him, shrugs, and leaves. Anielle takes a sip of the alcohol and grimaces.

ANIELLE:

Bleck! Why would anyone get

addicted to that?

 

EXT. DOG HOUSE. LATE AFTERNOON.

Anielle sits on the grass with a book while Toci tends to some plants. Anielle hears Toci singing.

ANIELLE:

Is that “Find Youself?”

TOCI:

Singing is good for the plants.

ANIELLE:

Temple of Isis is my favorite

band!

TOCI:

Me too! Wow, we’re too not too

different after all!

ANIELLE:

Well, I don’t sleep with a

different guy every day.

TOCI:

I don’t sleep with a different

guy every day! This week I slept

with…

(counts)

Okay, fine. Maybe I can get you

to like plants.

ANIELLE:

Unlikely.

TOCI:

Well, read this book if you

get bored.

She hands her a book entitled, “How to Heal with Botany.” Anielle looks somewhat interested. George walks by and sees the two girls.

GEORGE:

What? Are you doing homework

on the weekend?

ANIELLE:

No.

TOCI:

I am!

ANIELLE:

Well, I’m reading crime novels.

I know some of the fear mongers,

so I wanna know how to make

murder look like an accident.

They look up in the sky and see a golden bat flying towards them.

ANIELLE:

Oh good, that must be the spy

cameras!

The bat drops the package on her lap and flies away. Anielle opens it and hands them off to George and Toci.

TOCI:

Wow, we just attach it to our

legs, and it blends in with

our clothes. No one would know

what we’re doing if we touch

our leg really quick! After we

take pictures of the campus, can

I use them in the men’s shower?

ANIELLE:

I guess I better go give this one

to Joshua.

GEORGE:

Be nice to him, for once!

ANIELLE:

I will if he does. God, I don’t

know what his problem is?

TOCI:

Isn’t it obvious? You bicker

because you’re covering up

your secret desires to sleep

with him!

ANIELLE:

What? You’re out of your mind!

GEORGE:

I agree. It’s like watching

two kids hexing each other on

the playground.

ANIELLE:

I have never thought about him

in that way!

TOCI:

Outloud.

ANIELLE:

Excuse me, but I do have a

boyfriend!

GEORGE:

So? You can still fantasize!

ANIELLE:

Oh please! I can do better! And

I have, with Peter. I’m going to

give the boy-I’m-not-attracted-to

his spy camera!

Anielle leaves. Toci and George secretly and curiously follow her.

Temca Academy, Part 9

INT. MAGICAL MEDIA CLASS. AFTERNOON.

In another large classroom, Anielle sits on the left side of the room. George sits on the right side with his rowdy broom football friends. He sees Anielle, gives a nod of acknowledgment, and pays attention to his friends. Anielle looks around at the people in the room. A few people chat with their friends while others wait for the professor completely bored. One dorky-looking guy, CHAD (who has short, blond hair, pale skin, and glasses) tries to show off the exciting parts of the class book to his friend, who looks completely bored. Anielle titters. Nothing in the room looks unusual. The professor, who is named MCCLOUD (a very old Caucasian man) enters the room with a slight limp. He stops before the podium, and everyone pays attention.

MCCLOUD:

Good afternoon. I am Professor

McCloud, and this is introduction

to Magical Media.

A couple of people got the wrong classroom and leave. McCloud speaks in a very boring, monotone voice.

MCCLOUD:

Introduction to Magical Media is

both a requirement for magical

media majors and a benefit for

certain career aspects. Topics

this class will include different

forms of magical media, production,

public relations…

As he rambles on, Anielle hears scratching at the door. She ignores it until the whole class can hear it.

MCCLOUD:

That must be a late student.

(to Anielle)

Go see who it is.

Anielle gets up and answers the door. She is shocked to see a mummy standing there. She quickly slams the door. It tries to get in, but Anielle blocks it with her body.

MCCLOUD:

Who is it?

ANIELLE:

Someone for George. Come here.

As George gets up, puzzled, the mummy gets more and more aggressive.

MCCLOUD:

I hope there will be no more

interruptions, Miss…

ANIELLE:

Chadrick. I won’t interrupt you.

Actually, I read your book over

the summer and found it fascinating!

Chad gives Anielle a thumbs up, and McCloud continues with his boring lecture. George approaches Anielle and looks at the door apprehensively.

GEORGE:

(whispers)

Who’s really out there?

ANIELLE:

(whispers)

A mummy.

GEORGE:

A mummy? Like from Egypt?

ANIELLE:

No, more like from the no-ma

movies. Help me get rid of it

before-

She loses control of the door, and the mummy enters. At first people do not react, thinking it is a joke.

MCCLOUD:

Very funny. Take your mask off

so I know who I’m taking to the

dean’s office!

The mummy continues to move forward. When he gets close to the students, they smell a terrible odor and get away from it. McCloud gets mad and takes out his scepter. He points it at the mummy, and the wrap around his head comes off. Under the wrap is a mummified head. Everyone realizes it is real and runs out of the room. George points his scepter at the mummy , who trips over his own wrap.

GEORGE:

Okay, you saw that no-ma movie.

How do they kill it?

ANIELLE:

They don’t; they just escape

the pyramid.

GEORGE:

Then how do we get rid of it?

Anielle thinks for a moment as the mummy tries to get up.

ANIELLE:

We get rid of it.

Anielle points her scepter at the mummy, which sends him flying out the door.

 

EXT. CAFETERIA COURTYARD. AFTERNOON.

A few students are sitting outside eating. They see the mummy flying through the air and drop their food and drinks in shock. In the sky, a student is flying on a broomstick when the mummy crashes into him. He avoids falling by hold onto his broom.

 

EXT. DORM COURTYARD. AFTERNOON.

George and Anielle meet Toci and Joshua between the Dog House and a couple other dorms. Toci and Joshua are holding paper airplanes.

TOCI:

We got your message. So, a

mummy huh?

They walk and discuss this.

JOSHUA:

Where did you send him?

ANIELLE:

The Sahara desert.

GEORGE:

So, your first class had

spiders, and this one had a

mummy. Who was in both classes?

ANIELLE:

No idea.

TOCI:

Maybe the professors could

tell you.

 

EXT. CAFETERIA COURTYARD. AFTERNOON.

ANIELLE:

Ugh! I wish there was an

easier-

In the sky, the guy who fell off his broom talks to a couple of peace officers.

PEACE OFFICER 1:

So, you were in a hit and run

with a flying mummy?

BROOMSTICK MAN:

Yes! What is so hard to believe

about that?

TOCI:

It couldn’t hurt to research

more about fear mongers. I bet

there are loads of books about

them in the library. How fun!

JOSHUA:

I just hope we can figure this

out before it spreads off campus!

PEACE OFFICER 2:

No, we’re taking you to be

evaluated, standard procedure.

BROOMSTICK MAN:

Don’t do this to me! Find the

mummy! He’ll tell you!

The four continue walking as the peace officers handcuff the man.

Temca Academy, Part 7

INT. STAIRWELL. MORNING.

Anielle picks up the fear monger’s body and tosses it out the window while Joshua waddles down the stairs. Anielle feels sorry for him as he slowly goes downstairs.

ANIELLE:

Don’t forget that most pain

potions don’t let you drink

alcohol…

JOSHUA:

I’m aware of that. Thanks,

Princess.

ANIELLE:

I was just trying to help!

JOSHUA:

Oh please! Your sincerity is

as fake as your breasts!

ANIELLE:

My boobs are real!

JOSHUA:

Yeah, right!

ANIELLE:

You can tell when you touch

them if an enlargement spell

has been done because the

skin is harder. Mine feel

real.

JOSHUA:

They look fake.

ANIELLE:

I’ll prove it. Feel them.

JOSHUA:

What?

ANIELLE:

Feel them so I can prove you

wrong!

JOSHUA:

No. I don’t want to touch

your boobs!

ANIELLE:

You can’t keep calling them

fake if you don’t have proof!

Feel them! Either shut up or

touch them!

JOSHUA:

I’m not gonna shut up.

ANIELLE:

Then what are you afraid of?

That you’ll be wrong? Touch

them! I’m waiting! Are you

gonna touch my boobs or not?

Toci comes in and hears this.

TOCI:

Woah!

ANIELLE:

This isn’t what it looks like.

TOCI:

Here’s your potion, Joshua. I’ll

just give you two some privacy.

Toci leaves. Embarassed, Anielle storms out.

 

INT. COMMONROOM. EVENING.

Anielle sulks while she watches the hologram television (which looks like a projector but it shows everything in 3-d.) The show is a wizard’s soap opera, where the two wizards are forcing a witch to choose between them. Anielle has her arms folded as she watches. Toci enters.

TOCI:

So, this is where you’ve

been hiding all day?

ANIELLE:

I’m not hiding from anyone.

Your roommate is hanging out

with my creepy roommate, and

it’s obvious she’s avoiding

me, which is probably what I

would do to her anyways.

TOCI:

You’ve been watching cheesy

soap operas all day?

ANIELLE:

No. Not that anyone will

appreciate it, but I went down

to the mail room and put an

order in for spy cameras. They

should be here in a couple days.

TOCI:

That’s great! I’m sure everyone

will appreciate it.

ANIELLE:

Not everyone.

TOCI:

Look, Joshua is just a little

edgy because he’s had to work

hard for everything he has and

your life has been relatively

easy. Plus, your attitude has

kinda indicated only people

with money matter.

ANIELLE:

Well, that’s what I’m used to.

I’m used to social gatherings

and tidy quarters. And yes, a

lot of the people I know are

kinda pretentious, but they’re

not all bad people. Back at home,

I have a large room, posh

furniture, and everything is

relatively quiet. Now I’m stuck

in a cramped room with psycho

roommate, and I’m surrounded by

noisy, hyper people all day and

night.

TOCI:

Welcome to college.

ANIELLE:

On top of all that, I’ve gotta

help save the world from the

fear mongers while I go to

classes and do homework. And I

can’t even vent to my boyfriend

about it this week!

TOCI:

I know it’s not exactly what you

were expecting, but it’ll be

okay. You’ll see. And since we’ll

have to see more of each other

anyways, feel free to vent to me.

ANIELLE:

I hate how Joshua assumes ‘cause

I have money that I have no

problems. I may live comfortably,

but it doesn’t take away the drama.

And every time I feel sorry for

him and try to help, he’s mean to

me. I want to be his friend, but

he doesn’t try to get along with

me. He’s one of the few people in

this place I wanna get along with.

I don’t wanna be friends with

everyone. Does that make me a bad

person?

TOCI:

You don’t have to be friends with

everyone. I’m not. I know you’re

a good person deep down ‘cause

you are helping us with the fear

mongers. If you want, I’ll go

brew some calming tea, and we

can chat all-

Some wizards streaking on broomsticks zoom by the window.

TOCI:

I gotta go!

Toci runs out of the room. Anielle hears a lot of girls running down the hall. Anielle laughs and goes back to her program.

Temca Academy, Part 6

INT. TOCI’S ROOM. MORNING.

EST-Half of Toci’s room is covered in plants, pictures of animals, books on organic gardening, and things along that line. The other half looks similar to Circe’s decorations. Anielle looks at it in disgust.

TOCI:

That’s my roommate’s, Agatha.

George and Joshua enter.

GEORGE:

Agatha? She’s hot.

JOSHUA:

We heard what happened down-

stairs. So you got a-

TOCI:

Wait!

(kicks the bed)

Hey you! Time to go!

A half naked man appears from under Toci’s blankets, grabs his pants, and leaves.

JOSHUA:

I didn’t know you had a

boyfriend.

TOCI:

I don’t have a boyfriend. I

met him last night.

GEORGE:

But we were with you last

night!

TOCI:

I remembered why I was going

to the kitchen when I found

you. I was getting some ice

cream out of the refrigerator.

I went back for it, and he was

there, getting a beer, and then

next thing I remember, we were

sleeping together!

JOSHUA:

Are you gonna see him again?

TOCI:

Oh no, he’s not my type.

GEORGE:

Then why did you sleep with him?

TOCI:

He looked thick!

ANIELLE:

Alright, that’s enough! I didn’t

come here to gossip about Toci!

This is serious! We have a fear

monger in this hall! It’s possible

they’ll try to scare us. We’re going

to have to face our fears while we

hunt them down.

GEORGE:

How are we going to get pictures

of everyone’s rooms without

looking perverted or creepy!

TOCI:

We could get spy cameras.

JOSHUA:

I can’t afford that.

TOCI:

Well, someone here can afford

spy cameras for everyone…

They all look at Anielle.

ANIELLE:

(shrugs)

Okay, since I have to. At

least this will fill in

some extra time I’ll have

apparently since my boyfriend

will be busy at a conference.

JOSHUA:

What do you see in that

pompous asshole?

GEORGE:

One person with money gets

with another person with

money so they have twice as

much money.

ANIELLE:

It’s not like that!

TOCI:

Then why?

Anielle has to think for a second.

ANIELLE:

He’s always been there for

me…

JOSHUA:

Except during this conference!

ANIELLE:

Oh great, now it’s my turn

to gossip about my life! Why

do you care?

Before anyone can answer, Circe walks in with Agatha.

AGATHA:

Oh, sorry! We’ll go to Circe’s

room then!

They leave but they do not get far.

CIRCE (O.S.)

Eiww! How did this fly get

in here?

The four look at each other with apprehension. They gather themselves up and run after the fly.

 

INT. DORM HALL. MORNING.

The four come barreling out furiously trying to swat the fly. People give them strange looks, but they ignore it, just concentrating on the fly. They spread out through the hall, try to corner the fly. They use their scepters to close doors that the fly tries to get into. Finally, they corner the fly at the end of the hall near the stairwell. The fly lands on Joshua’s pant zipper, and George swats it. The fly dies as Joshua doubles over in pain.

GEORGE:

Yes! I got the fly!

TOCI:

Both of them! I can brew

something for the pain.

She leaves.

GEORGE:

Now, what was I doing before

this?

(beat)

Oh crap! The first broomstick

football meeting!

George runs down the stairs. Joshua hobbles into the stairwell. Anielle notices the fly’s body morph into the fear monger monster. She kicks it into the stairwell.

JOSHUA (O.S.)

Ow!

Anielle sees the onlookers from the fly incident, laughs embarrassedly, and goes into the stairwell.

Temca Academy, Part 5

INT. ANIELLE’S ROOM. LATE NIGHT.

Anielle climbs into bed, still mad. She lays down angrily and shuts her eyes.

CIRCE:

(singing in her sleep)

The boogeyman is here! The boogey-

man is here!

Anielle puts a pillow over her ears and tries to sleep.

 

INT. CAFETERIA. MORNING.

Anielle sits by herself in a very large, crowded sitting area. She has dark circles under her eyes, and she rests her chin in her palms as she sips coffee. Joshua passes by and gives her a look of disgust. Anielle feels annoyed. Circe almost sits by her with her friend, Agatha, from down the hall.

CIRCE:

Hey, this one looks free!

(sees Anielle)

Oh, nevermind.

Circe and Agatha walk away, whispering gossip. Anielle is a little surprised. Out of the window, she sees a herd of bats. As they enter the hall and deliver letters and packages to people, Anielle is pleased to see a golden bat flying towards her. She is pleased to see it is from Peter.

PETER (O.S.)

Dear Anielle, I will be very

at a conference this week, so

I will not be able to contact

you. I will be back on Thursday.

If it goes well, I’ll land us a

new contract worth millions of

pieces! Yours truly, Peter.

Anielle now feels really annoyed. She gets up to leave. As she passes Joshua’s table, she expects to see him with a bunch of his friends, cracking jokes about her, but she sees him by himself with a bottle of Old Hag whiskey. She feels a little sad now.

 

INT. DORM HALL. MORNING.

As she walks down the hall, thinking, she notices people seem to be avoiding her.

ANIELLE:

(to herself)

Jealous much?

As she says this, she notices a flash of a fear monger’s leg. She runs to the room.

 

INT. JACK’S ROOM. MORNING.

She peers in and sees her neighbor, Jack, on his laptop reading a letter, which looks like a 3-d scroll. He eventually sees her peering in.

JACK:

What?

ANIELLE:

Nothing. Probably my imagination.

JACK:

Then do you mind?

 

INT. DORM HALL. MORNING.

Anielle is almost at her room when she hears Jack’s scream. She runs back over.

 

INT. JACK’S ROOM. MORNING.

She runs in, fearing the worst. She sees Jack standing on his desk chair looking very frightened.

ANIELLE:

What happened?

JACK:

A mouse!

ANIELLE:

That’s it?

JACK:

A really big one! Right

there!

ANIELLE:

Oh, I’ll get it, you big

baby!

She raises her scepter and almost does a spell. Toci walks in.

TOCI:

Wait! Don’t kill it!

ANIELLE:

I have to! You know why!

TOCI:

(whispers)

That’s not a fear monger. The

fear monger put it there.

(louder)

This creature deserves a chance

at life!

ANIELLE:

You do realize we use mice in

some important potions.

TOCI:

Those mice are raised on farms,

and when they die naturally, they

get sent to potion suppliers.

Anielle rolls her eyes and notices Jack is still squirming.

ANIELLE:

Fine. I’ll set it outside.

She points her scepter at the mouse and flies it out the already open window, landing it on the ground. A moment later, a bald eagle swoops down and grabs the mouse. Toci screams.

ANIELLE:

(to Toci)

I think we should talk in

your room.

She pushes Toci, who is still grieving for the mouse, towards her room across the hall.
