Temca Academy, 25

EXT. THE WOODS. NIGHT.

The four stand before the woods with their scepters drawn.

ANIELLE:

Ready for this?

GEORGE:

No!

ANIELLE:

Too bad!

A bunch of henchmen appear before them. They are outnumbered, so they run into the woods.

EXT. WOOD GROVE. NIGHT.

They all run into a grove but stop to breathe.

JOSHUA:

We should’ve brought brooms!

How can out run them?

ANIELLE:

We can’t, but we can capture

them. All we need is a distraction.

TOCI:

I got this!

When the henchmen appear, Toci lifts up her shirt to flash them. While they gawk at her, the other three use their scepters to bind them with a latex rope.

GEORGE:

Latex ropes-they’re ninety-

nine percent effective!

TOCI:

My tetas are gifts; my tetas

are weapons!

They leave the area.

 

EXT. BABELSAM’S LAIR. NIGHT.

On the outskirts of the woods, in a small town, the four spot the dilapidated office building with a sign that reads “Curiosity killed the trespasser.”

ANIELLE:

Do you think he set up booby

traps for us?

JOSHUA:

Oh please! I’m training to be

a peace officer, and I think I

am wise enough to spot a booby

trap a mile away!

They step forward, which activates a trap door. They all fall in.

 

INT. BABELSAMA’S LAIR. NIGHT.

They land with a thud in the same room from the beginning. The lights turn on as Babelsama moves towards them.

BABELSAMA:

Ah, it’s the beginning of the end.

GEORGE:

(sarcastic)

Ooh, how melodramatic!

BABELSAMA:

Who knew that my plan would be

foiled by a drunk, a hippy, a

dumb jock, and a spoiled brat!

ANIELLE:

That’s what I said!

BABELSAMA:

And now we’ll fight. Don’t think

of your number as an advantage

because I am an extremely powerful

fighter!

TOCI:

Then why did you have fear

mongers and henchmen do your

dirty work?

BABELSAMA:

Meh. Too lazy.

He makes the ground shake, and the four lose their balance. Their scepters are knocked out of their hands. Every time they get close to their scepters, Babelsama shoots a hex at them, which forces them to dodge it.

JOSHUA:

You are the most annoying person

on the planet!

BABELSAMA:

Want some peace? I could kill you!

He surrounds the four in a circle of fire. They without a scepter and surrounded. They glue together, not knowing what to do. Babelsama goes into the fire.

BABELSAMA:

Victory is almost mine! Now, I

just gotta get rid of the people

that made the last nine months

hell! And nothing can stop me!

MAGIC SWAT (O.S.)

This is the magical swat team!

We have you surrounded! Prepare

for our entrance!

BABELSAMA:

Son of a bitch! You’re not supposed

to call the peace men! Heroes are

supposed to do everything on their

own! That’s the rule! I guess I’ll

have to waste as many of you as I can!

He quickly aims a spell at Anielle. Anielle did not react in time, but Joshua does and takes the hex for her. The magical swat team bursts in, puts out the flames, and rapidly grabs Babelsama. Anielle immediately dives down to make sure Joshua is okay.

ANIELLE:

Joshua! I can’t feel a pulse!

You can’t be gone! Everything

is so clear now! I wanna be with

you! I’ve never felt like this

about a guy before. You sacrificed

yourself for me! No one has ever

cared about me so much. This can’t

be it! We are supposed to be

together! Joshua!

Anielle turns away and starts crying for a beat.

JOSHUA:

Anielle…

Anielle is startled and screams.

ANIELLE:

Sorry, I thought you were dead.

You’re alive!

She pounces on him for a hug.

JOSHUA:

(groans)

Not yet. Everything hurts right now.

ANIELLE:

You were going to die for me.

JOSHUA:

You saved my life first.

Besides, I…well….

Anielle knows what he is trying to say. They kiss.

TOCI:

Awww!

BABELSAMA:

I’m so glad I was arrested so

I could make this magical moment

happen! I still can’t believe

you called the peace officers!

The mummy appears on the scene.

MUMMY:

No, I did. You bastard! You left

me alone in the Sahara desert for

nine months!

Babelsama grumbles, and the magical swat team takes him away.

 

INT. ANIELLE AND TOCI’S ROOM. NIGHT.

Anielle and Toci return, not knowing Neiman is waiting for them.

ANIELLE:

The rescue medics said Joshua

should be out tomorrow morning.

I know how I’m going to thank

him too! With some….oh, hi

Daddy!

NEIMAN:

There you are! I came to get you.

ANIELLE:

About that…

NEIMAN:

You’re not packed.

ANIELLE:

Listen, you probably know that

Peter and I broke up. Did he

tell you why?

NEIMAN:

No. I was puzzled about that.

ANIELLE:

He needs to date someone who’s

going to spend the rest of her

life at your company, and I’m

not. I changed my major. I’m

going to be a rescue healer!

NEIMAN:

Gross! Why?

ANIELLE:

Peter and I don’t love each

other. He’s dating his secretary

now. I met someone too. He’s

training to be a crime solver.

NEIMAN:

No! You’re supposed to be the

good one! Your sister married

the pool boy! You’re supposed

to sleep with the help, not

marry them! Why did you both

choose to be middle class?

ANIELLE:

You don’t get it. Your first

two wives left you because you

chose your work over your family.

I only need enough money to live

comfortably. I made up my mind to

pursue my passions, and I’ve never

been happier!

NEIMAN:

Fine! Call me when you change your

mind!

Neiman storms out.

TOCI:

Wow. You never told me about

your sister!

ANIELLE:

Well, for a while we weren’t

speaking to each other.

George appears at the door.

GEORGE:

Way to tell off your dad!

ANIELLE:

You heard that? Oh right,

thin walls. My mom married

an interior designer, his

second wife married some

soap opera star, and his

current wife has been with

him for ten years. He is at

the office so much he has no

idea she’s a cougar chasing

young men all day! I’m glad

that won’t happen to me!

TOCI:

Good for you!

GEORGE:

So…can I call your stepmom?

They all laugh.

 

INT. ANIELLE AND TOCI’S ROOM. MORNING.

Joshua enters, not looking directly at Anielle.

JOSHUA:

Look, I know you wanna take it

slow, which is understandable

since you just got out of a long

relationship and we almost died.

I’m okay with that. I wanna do

whatever it takes to make you happy.

Joshua finally sees her, and his jaw drops as he sees her in a cheerleading outfit.

ANIELLE:

Did I tell you I made next

year’s cheer squad?

JOSHUA:

Aw, man! You wanna take things

slow when you wear that? That’s

just cruel!

Anielle presses up against him and puts her arms around his neck.

ANIELLE:

I never said I wanted to take

it slow!

JOSHUA:

Oh, thank God!

Anielle laughs. They deeply kiss and Joshua lowers her to the bed.

 

INT. HALLWAY. AFTERNOON.

Toci is about to enter the room when she notices a red x on the door.

TOCI:

Finally!

Chad appears by the door.

CHAD:

Is Anielle busy?

TOCI:

Yeah she is! All year, it’s been

me putting x’s on the door. I got

so used to them being for me that

I almost walked in!

CHAD:

We’re so opposite on that spectrum!

I’m saving myself for marriage.

TOCI:

Really? Wow, I didn’t know people

still did that!

CHAD:

Anyways, I just came to drop

off her half of our project.

I know she’s not taking business

anymore, but I thought she might

like it.

TOCI:

So, you like business? I wanted

to start my own organic apothecary

business. But I just realized I

don’t know anything about business!

CHAD:

Well, if you ever need advice,

you can call me. My name is Chad.

TOCI:

Chad. I’m Toci.

CHAD:

See you around, Toci.

TOCI:

Bye, Chad!

 

EXT. DOG HOUSE. AFTERNOON.

Anielle, Joshua, Toci, and George meet up to say goodbye. They give each other hugs.

GEORGE:

See you guys next year, which

should be pretty uneventful,

very laid back and normal, right?

ANIELLE:

I don’t think our lives will ever

be normal!

GEORGE:

Well, what’s life without a few

monsters to slay?

They all laugh. They say goodbye to each other, pick up their bags, and leave. The sun shines brightly on their campus. A bat flies by and laughs wickedly.
