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.
