Temca Academy, Part 24

INT. JOSHUA’S ROOM. NIGHT.

Anielle arrives at this door and pounds on it. She listens and does not hear a sound. Toci and George watch as she uses her scepter to melt the hinges. She kicks the door open and sees Joshua passed out on the floor, surrounded by empty alcohol bottles. Toci gasps. Anielle checks his pulse.

ANIELLE:

There’s still a faint pulse.

George, call a rescue healer.

Toci, there’s not a lot of

time. You know which plants I

need.

 

INT. EMERGENCY HEALING ROOM. DAWN.

Just at the brink of dawn, Joshua wakes up to see himself in a healer’s bed. He looks to his right to see Anielle, who has sallow skin, heavy bags under her eyes, and a big smile. He is a little confused.

JOSHUA:

What happened?

HEALER:

You got a second chance! You

drank a lethal amount of alcohol.

Thank your lucky stars this

young lady brewed a toxin

banishment potion! If it weren’t

for her swift actions, we wouldn’t

have been able to save you.

JOSHUA:

Wow. Anielle, somehow thank you

doesn’t seem to be enough!

ANIELLE:

It’s not enough. I want you to

promise me you’ll never drink

that much again!

JOSHUA:

You have my word.

The healer smiles and leaves the room. George enters, and Toci flies onto Joshua’s bed to hug him. Joshua groans.

ANIELLE:

Careful, his stomach is really

sensitive!

GEORGE:

Dude, you scared us!

TOCI:

Next time you’re really upset…

JOSHUA:

I’m done using alcohol as an

escape.

ANIELLE:

Two things you should know.

Peter and I broke up. And

after rescuing you, I realized

what I wanted to do. I’m

switching my major to rescue

healing!

JOSHUA:

That’s really great!

TOCI:

The bad news is you have to

heal real fast ‘cause Babelsama

is sending henchmen to kill us.

JOSHUA:

Ah, so my life was saved only

to die more painfully!

GEORGE:

Look, we better get going. Toci

was already talking about seducing

the whole trauma ward!

TOCI:

What? It’s a form of healing!

George and Toci leave. Anielle smiles and waves to Joshua, who smiles and waves back.

 

BEGIN HENCHMEN MONTAGE:

INT. BOOKSTORE. AFTERNOON.

Toci and Anielle are buying things at the bookstore. Toci pulls out money from her bra and hands it to the cashier. Right as they are about to leave, a couple of henchmen burst into the shop. Other shoppers scream and run away. Toci and Anielle motion to a peace officer. The henchmen get scared and runaway.

EXT. MAGIC LACROSSE FIELD. AFTERNOON.

Joshua and George are playing magical lacrosse when a couple of henchmen appear. They start to fight, but a cat walks by the field. One of the henchmen is seriously allergic, so the henchmen run away.

INT. LOCKER ROOM. EVENING.

Anielle is talking with a couple of cheerleaders while George unsuccessfully flirts with a couple more. A few henchmen burst into the room. George and Anielle, along with all of the cheerleaders, yell and raise their scepters. The henchmen freak out and run away.

EXT. LETTER ROOM. MORNING.

Joshua and Toci are in a letter room, which is a huge roost for bats. A henchmen bursts in, thinking he has them cornered. Toci simply commands the bats to swarm the henchmen. The henchmen is forced to run away.

INT. ANIELLE AND TOCI’S ROOM .NIGHT.

Toci is nursing a big, red slap mark on George’s cheek when a couple of henchmen come in. Before George and Toci can react, Circe and Agatha walk by and eye the henchmen flirtatiously. The henchmen put away their scepters and follow the girls.

EXT. PARKING LOT. EVENING.

Anielle and Joshua are talking while they unhitch their brooms. In the sky, a couple of henchmen appear before them. They make some threats, but as Joshua and Anielle draw their scepters, a barrage of students on broomsticks run into them. The henchmen can no longer be found. Anielle and Joshua shrug and return to their prior task.

END HENCHMEN MONTAGE.

 

INT. JOSHUA’S ROOM. MORNING.

Anielle enters the room expecting to see Joshua but instead sees George.

GEORGE:

You don’t look happy to see

me! I know I’m not as exciting

as your secret crush!

ANIELLE:

Shut up! We’re just friends!

Toci enters.

TOCI:

I’m not gonna rush you, but

you gotta do what feels right.

I have never found a guy that

I wanna see again in the morning.

I’ve never had an opportunity

like you have with Joshua. You

gotta act before it’s too late.

Joshua enters.

JOSHUA:

Why are you all in my room?

GEORGE:

We wanted to discuss where

Babelsama’s lair must be. I’d

say it’s gotta be close to

campus.

ANIELLE:

Wait a minute! I think I know

where it is! On the fly over

here, my dad and I saw this

old office building. My dad

said there was a man dancing

on the front porch. I was used

to him making fun of the poor,

so I didn’t think much of it.

But that must’ve been him!

JOSHUA:

You had this clue all along and

never said anything?

TOCI:

Look, it doesn’t matter right

now. Let’s go get him!

Everyone stands up.

ALL:

Yeah!

TOCI:

Wait, we have finals today!

ALL:

We’ll get him later!

They all disperse to study.
