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.
