The Obsessive, Part 2

EXT. GREEK FOREST. NIGHT.

Greek Kora runs through the forest as fast as she can. She looks truly frightened, her clothes are torn, and she has a few scratches on her. She finally runs out of breath and clutches against a tree. ZOOM OUT to show she is by a river.

VELOS (O.S.):
You can keep running all your life
if you want.
(laughs)

GREEK KORA:
You won’t hurt anymore of my friends!

Greek Kora hurls herself into the river. Beat. Velos comes to look for her and eventually her corpse floats up.

EXT. MEDIEVAL ROAD. DAY.

SUPERIMPOSE: England 1619

MEDIEVAL KORA (looks like Greek Kora but with medieval garb) walks down the street happily. She greets people as they pass.

VILLAGER 1:
Good morrow!

MEDIEVAL KORA:
‘Tis indeed!

VILLAGER 2:
How fare you?

MEDIEVAL KORA:
Very well!

VILLAGER 2:
As always!

Medieval Kora chuckles. She reaches her destination and enters into a house.

INT/EXT. MEDIEVAL KORA’S HOUSE. DAY.

Medieval Kora sits by a window reading a book. She looks very relaxed. She closes the book, and looks out to the sea. INTERCUT to the ocean. INTERCUTT BACK to Medieval Kora sighs in contentment.

EXT. MEDIEVAL ROAD. NIGHT.

The villagers all carry torches and shout in anger. Medieval Kora is tied to a post, and hay surrounds the post. A medieval LORD reads from a parchment.

LORD:
Due to the suspicious amount of murders
around thee and the strange activity
coming from thine house, you have been
charged with heresy. Thou art sentenced
to burning. Any last words?

VILLAGER 1:
Burn her!

VILLAGER 2:
She’s a witch!

MEDIEVAL JULIAN (dark hair, brown eyes, skinny physique) runs up to her.

MEDIEVAL JULIAN:
Don’t let them do this! Tell them
thou art innocent and they’ll let
thee go!

MEDIEVAL KORA:
Everyone is safer this way.

The lord pushes Medieval Julian out of the way. The torch bearers light the hay. Medieval Kora closes her eyes and embraces her fate.

EXT. VICTORIAN SHIP. DAY.

SUPERIMPOSE: Virginia 1824

VICTORIAN KORA (dressed in servant robes) sits at the side of a large ship. She gazes out at the water. INTERCUT to her view of the land in the distance. CUT BACK to Victorian Kora. Her cat, MICKEY (a long-haired white cat) jumps onto the edge with her.

VICTORIAN KORA:
Look at it! It’s Virginia, our new home!
Sure, I’ll be an indentured servant, but
once I’ve earned enough money, I can buy
my freedom! Can you imagine it? No longer
will I slave away in poverty! And no
uptight aristocrats judging us. Everyone
here came for an adventure. I cannot wait
to have my own adventure! That’s what
freedom is-an adventure! Nothing can stop
us now!

INT. VICTORIAN KORA’S ROOM. SUNSET.

Victorian Kora lays on her deathbed. She is extremely pale. A VICTORIAN DOCTOR enters.

VICTORIAN DOCTOR:
Your influenza seems to have taken
a turn for the worst.

VICTORIAN KORA:
Yes.

VICTORIAN DOCTOR:
Why did you wander outside in the
winter with no cloak?

VICTORIAN KORA:
I was focused on…other things…

VICTORIAN DOCTOR:
A lot of people have died around
here lately. It’s a shame to add
one more to the list.

VICTORIAN KORA:
No, it’s better this way. I’ll
finally get my freedom!

VICTORIAN DOCTOR:
Alright, well, let’s try blood
letting one more time. Maybe
this time will take.

Victorian Kora grows fainter as he puts leeches on her.

VICTORIAN KORA:
Everyone is safe now! Freedom!

The Victorian Doctor looks at her strangely as he places the leeches.

INT. VELOS’S LAIR.

Velos bangs one of his fists against the wall and cries out in frustration. He then paces back and forth angrily.

VELOS:
How do I keep losing her?

Velos stops and looks at his crystal ball.

VELOS:
Mark my words-next lifetime, she
will be mine!

Velos waves his hand over the crystal ball. ZOOM IN to the crystal ball, which gains a multi-colored cloud.
