Heaven’s Headquarters, Part 5

INT. OFFICE HALL. EVENING.

Joseph and Ethan appear in a row of cubicles, and it appears the office is in the middle of a huge party. People were dancing, drinking cocktails, laughing, and conversing animatedly.

JOSEPH:

Sure doesn’t look like they’re

depressed!

ETHAN:

We’ve never had an office party

before! What’s going on?

At that moment, the boss (GREGORY) turns off the music. Everyone pays attention as he prepares to speak.

GREGORY:

I just wanted to take a moment

to remind you all why we’re here

and we’re celebrating today. Exactly

one year ago we lost a brave hero.

Ethan Miller died tragically. He

was certainly an asset in his life, but

he proves to be an even greater

influence through his death. His

actions have inspired us to be the

company we are today. Profits

have soared higher than ever, thanks

to his philosophy! So, let’s all have

a toast!

(raises glass)

To Ethan!

ALL:

To Ethan!

Gregory turns on the music, and everyone resumes the party.

ETHAN:

Don’t even ask. I’m not ready

yet. Just because the company

doesn’t miss me and is more

profitable than ever since I died

doesn’t mean my coworkers don’t

miss me.

Joseph shrugs and lets Ethan listen to his coworkers chat.

JOHN:

I hope this party makes Ethan

proud!

GABRIEL:

You know it does!

PAUL:

Didn’t I replace him?

ESTHER:

You didn’t replace him. No

one could replace what he

did. But essentially you took

over his duties when he was

gone.

GABRIEL:

You were the only one that was

not intimidated by taking his old

cubicle. No one thought they could

fill his shoes. Lucky you did! The

company is doing so well now!

PAUL:

Thanks guys! Hey, John! Isn’t

that the girl you like over there?

JOHN:

(blushes)

No!

ESTHER:

Yes it is! Look at Sarah standing

by herself. Go ask her to dance!

JOHN:

Oh, I couldn’t!

GABRIEL:

Do it dude! Or someone else will!

JOHN:

Why would she say yes to me?

PAUL:

You’re a nice guy. Girls love nice

guys. Go be charming and she has

to fall for you!

They urge John to go ask Sarah to dance. He hesitates, but eventually they convince him to go. They watch him from a distance. She says yes, and they all cheer. The group talks about their favorite cocktails. Ethan looks crestfallen.

JOSEPH:

Your fiancee moved on. Your

parents are doing well. Your

sister turned out fine. Your

coworkers are flourishing.

Is there anyone else you want

to see going on, or can we finally

go back to Heaven’s Headquarters?

ETHAN:

I’m not a quitter! Someone in this

town must miss me!

Joseph groans but snaps his fingers to take them away anyways.
