Temca Academy, Part 10

INT. JOSHUA’S ROOM. LATE AFTERNOON.

Anielle steps over a lot of junk and knocks on his door. She is surprised when TERRENCE (an athletic African-American man with glasses and a small afro) answers the door.

TERRENCE:
Can I help you?

ANIELLE:
Is Joshua there?

TERRENCE:
Hey Joshua! You finally got a
pretty girl to come to your room!
(to Anielle)
Come in.

Anielle is surprised to see Joshua without his shirt on, sprawled lazily on a small, circular chair. He is drinking a bottle of Bermuda rum, which he stows away when he sees Anielle.

JOSHUA:
What do you want?

ANIELLE:
Our spy cameras are here.

TERRENCE:
Spy cameras?

ANIELLE:
For, um, photography class.

JOSHUA:
Yeah, you know it’s part of
my Peace Officer Training!

ANIELLE:
You want to be a peace officer?

JOSHUA:
Crime solver, actually. And no,
I won’t drink on the job when I’m
there, okay?

ANIELLE:
Let’s not argue. We have to work
together for…photography class, so
let’s try not make things worse off.

TERRENCE:
Can I take your photography class?

JOSHUA:
No, it’s full.

ANIELLE:
Anyways, here’s your camera.

As she starts to hand it to him in the chair, he stands up to get it. As he stands, Anielle’s hand hits his crotch.

JOSHUA AND ANIELLE:
Oh, sorry!

They are quiet for a moment.

ANIELLE:
I gotta go!

As she rushes out, she opens the door harder than necessary, which is effective in whacking Toci and George.

INT. ANIELLE’S ROOM. EVENING.

Anielle walks in the room, and she sees Circe hanging off the side of her bed upside down.

ANIELLE:
So, can I finally declare you
legally insane?

Circe does her obnoxious laugh.

CIRCE:
I’m trying to think.

ANIELLE:
Then why would you…forget it.

Joshua appears in the doorway.

CIRCE:
Woah!

She rolls off the bed and slinks over to him.

CIRCE:
I’m Circe, and yes, I’m single.

JOSHUA:
I believe you.

Circe looks offended.

JOSHUA:
Anielle, my roommate went
outside, and I heard him scream.

ANIELLE:
Okay, let’s get the others and go.

CIRCE:
Where are we going?

ANIELLE:
Look! Something shiny!

CIRCE:
(looks around)

Where?
Joshua and Anielle run out of the room while Circe eagerly looks around.

 

EXT. DOG HOUSE. EVENING.

The four run out and see the courtyard is eerily lit. They hear Terrence scream, and they run to it. Right by Toci’s plants, they can hear it the loudest, but they still cannot see him.

GEORGE:
Terrence, buddy, where are ya?

TERRENCE (O.S.)
Help! Oh, God, help! Help!

JOSHUA:
We’re trying! Where are you?

TERRENCE (O.S.)
I don’t know! Get me out!

Anielle sees loose dirt below them.

ANIELLE:
We’re on top of him!

TOCI:
Again? I mean, for the first time?

GEORGE:
Let’s dig him out!

They pull out their scepters and magically uproot the dirt. Under all the dirt is a coffin. The four drag it out, and the boys pry it open. Terrence rushes out of it, gasping and visibly shaken.

ANIELLE:
Who did this to you?

TERRENCE:
I don’t know, but my worst fear
was being buried alive!

GEORGE:
Let’s go to the school healer.
This time, it’s not a broom
football injury!

George and Toci help Terrence up and bring him away. Anielle and Joshua feel awkward being alone together. A bat flies by and gives Anielle a note.

ANIELLE:
It’s from Peter!
(reads aloud)
Dear Anielle, good news! I
landed the new account! I’m
going to be super busy again,
but I will come visit before
the semester is over. Yours
truly, Peter.

JOSHUA:
Yours truly?

ANIELLE:
What’s wrong with that?

JOSHUA:
Why didn’t he say love?

ANIELLE:
He loves me! He doesn’t need
to say it!

JOSHUA:
If you say so. I need a drink!

ANIELLE:
Another one?

JOSHUA:
If you get to make bad decisions,
then so do I.

Joshua leaves. Anielle stands there looking a little confused.

Temca Academy, Part 9

NT. ANIELLE’S ROOM. NIGHT.

Annielle is on her bed reading a Magical Business Management book, but she finds it hard to concentrate on it because Circe is listening to some girly pop and dancing, trying to look cool but is way too uncoordinated. At one point, she crashes into Anielle.

ANIELLE:
Um, ow!

CIRCE:
Oh, sorry! You’re so quiet
that I forgot you were here.

ANIELLE:
Yeah…can you put a muffling
spell on that music?

CIRCE:
But without the vibrations, how
will I feel it in my soul? It’s
part of my deep personality, this
song.

ANIELLE:
Deep? What is so deep about…
(imitates singer)
I like air pops! Pop! Pop! Pop!

CIRCE:
Don’t act like your taste in
music is so much better! Like,
the Temple of Isis.
(points to poster)
Their biggest hit was called
Find Yourself. What is that
song even about?

ANIELLE:
Finding yourself.

CIRCE:
Like if you get lost in the woods?

ANIELLE:
No. They’re saying that after you
you break up with someone, it
teaches you how to find a new
identity and have confidence in-

CIRCE:
That’s depressing!

ANIELLE:
Every time you stop doing one
annoying thing, you find two
more ways to annoy me!

CIRCE:
Fine. I’ll go do my homework.

Circe pouts and starts reading. A second later, she screams. Anielle gets up and looks around the room.

ANIELLE:
What happened?

CIRCE:
I got a paper cut!

ANIELLE:
That’s all?

CIRCE:
It really hurt!

ANIELLE:
Here! Take some pain potion.

Anielle tosses her a vial. She drinks it and feels instantly better.

CIRCE:
Ooh, look at all that blood!

She puts her finger in her mouth like it is a cocktail.

ANIELLE:
You know what, you can play
that music. I’m gonna go study
in the lounge.

She gathers her things and quickly leaves the room.

 

INT. COMMONROOM LOUNGE. NIGHT.

Anielle sees the light off and assumes no one is in there. She turns on the lights and sees Joshua in his uniform with a bottle of Yeti Vodka.

ANIELLE:
Oh, you’re here. I’ll go.

JOSHUA:
No, you can stay. I was just
taking my break here.

ANIELLE:
You didn’t drink that whole
bottle tonight, did you?

JOSHUA:
No! I have some self control!
Only half!

ANIELLE:
That doesn’t prove you have
control! You wanna prove it?
Put the bottle down.

JOSHUA:
Why should I?

ANIELLE:
You can’t do it, can you?

JOSHUA:
Oh, you don’t think so?

Joshua gets up and leaves the bottle there.

JOSHUA:
I’m done drinking for the night.

ANIELLE:
Good!

Joshua starts to leave. He finds it odd Anielle influenced him, shrugs, and leaves. Anielle takes a sip of the alcohol and grimaces.

ANIELLE:
Bleck! Why would anyone get
addicted to that?

 

EXT. DOG HOUSE. LATE AFTERNOON.

Anielle sits on the grass with a book while Toci tends to some plants. Anielle hears Toci singing.

ANIELLE:
Is that “Find Youself?”

TOCI:
Singing is good for the plants.

ANIELLE:
Temple of Isis is my favorite
band!

TOCI:
Me too! Wow, we’re too not too
different after all!

ANIELLE:
Well, I don’t sleep with a
different guy every day.

TOCI:
I don’t sleep with a different
guy every day! This week I slept
with…
(counts)
Okay, fine. Maybe I can get you
to like plants.

ANIELLE:
Unlikely.

TOCI:
Well, read this book if you
get bored.

She hands her a book entitled, “How to Heal with Botany.” Anielle looks somewhat interested. George walks by and sees the two girls.

GEORGE:
What? Are you doing homework
on the weekend?

ANIELLE:
No.

TOCI:
I am!

ANIELLE:
Well, I’m reading crime novels.
I know some of the fear mongers,
so I wanna know how to make
murder look like an accident.

They look up in the sky and see a golden bat flying towards them.

ANIELLE:
Oh good, that must be the spy
cameras!

The bat drops the package on her lap and flies away. Anielle opens it and hands them off to George and Toci.

TOCI:
Wow, we just attach it to our
legs, and it blends in with
our clothes. No one would know
what we’re doing if we touch
our leg really quick! After we
take pictures of the campus, can
I use them in the men’s shower?

ANIELLE:
I guess I better go give this one
to Joshua.

GEORGE:
Be nice to him, for once!

ANIELLE:
I will if he does. God, I don’t
know what his problem is?

TOCI:
Isn’t it obvious? You bicker
because you’re covering up
your secret desires to sleep
with him!

ANIELLE:
What? You’re out of your mind!

GEORGE:
I agree. It’s like watching
two kids hexing each other on
the playground.

ANIELLE:
I have never thought about him
in that way!

TOCI:
Outloud.

ANIELLE:
Excuse me, but I do have a
boyfriend!

GEORGE:
So? You can still fantasize!

ANIELLE:
Oh please! I can do better! And
I have, with Peter. I’m going to
give the boy-I’m-not-attracted-to
his spy camera!

Anielle leaves. Toci and George secretly and curiously follow her.

Temca Academy, Part 8

INT. MAGICAL MEDIA CLASS. AFTERNOON.

In another large classroom, Anielle sits on the left side of the room. George sits on the right side with his rowdy broom football friends. He sees Anielle, gives a nod of acknowledgment, and pays attention to his friends. Anielle looks around at the people in the room. A few people chat with their friends while others wait for the professor completely bored. One dorky-looking guy, CHAD (who has short, blond hair, pale skin, and glasses) tries to show off the exciting parts of the class book to his friend, who looks completely bored. Anielle titters. Nothing in the room looks unusual. The professor, who is named MCCLOUD (a very old Caucasian man) enters the room with a slight limp. He stops before the podium, and everyone pays attention.

MCCLOUD:
Good afternoon. I am Professor
McCloud, and this is introduction
to Magical Media.

A couple of people got the wrong classroom and leave. McCloud speaks in a very boring, monotone voice.

MCCLOUD:
Introduction to Magical Media is
both a requirement for magical
media majors and a benefit for
certain career aspects. Topics
this class will include different
forms of magical media, production,
public relations…

As he rambles on, Anielle hears scratching at the door. She ignores it until the whole class can hear it.

MCCLOUD:
That must be a late student.
(to Anielle)
Go see who it is.

Anielle gets up and answers the door. She is shocked to see a mummy standing there. She quickly slams the door. It tries to get in, but Anielle blocks it with her body.

MCCLOUD:
Who is it?

ANIELLE:
Someone for George. Come here.

As George gets up, puzzled, the mummy gets more and more aggressive.

MCCLOUD:
I hope there will be no more
interruptions, Miss…

ANIELLE:
Chadrick. I won’t interrupt you.
Actually, I read your book over
the summer and found it fascinating!

Chad gives Anielle a thumbs up, and McCloud continues with his boring lecture. George approaches Anielle and looks at the door apprehensively.

GEORGE:
(whispers)
Who’s really out there?

ANIELLE:
(whispers)
A mummy.

GEORGE:
A mummy? Like from Egypt?

ANIELLE:
No, more like from the no-ma
movies. Help me get rid of it
before-

She loses control of the door, and the mummy enters. At first people do not react, thinking it is a joke.

MCCLOUD:
Very funny. Take your mask off
so I know who I’m taking to the
dean’s office!

The mummy continues to move forward. When he gets close to the students, they smell a terrible odor and get away from it. McCloud gets mad and takes out his scepter. He points it at the mummy, and the wrap around his head comes off. Under the wrap is a mummified head. Everyone realizes it is real and runs out of the room. George points his scepter at the mummy , who trips over his own wrap.

GEORGE:
Okay, you saw that no-ma movie.
How do they kill it?

ANIELLE:
They don’t; they just escape
the pyramid.

GEORGE:
Then how do we get rid of it?

Anielle thinks for a moment as the mummy tries to get up.

ANIELLE:
We get rid of it.

Anielle points her scepter at the mummy, which sends him flying out the door.

 

EXT. CAFETERIA COURTYARD. AFTERNOON.

A few students are sitting outside eating. They see the mummy flying through the air and drop their food and drinks in shock. In the sky, a student is flying on a broomstick when the mummy crashes into him. He avoids falling by hold onto his broom.

 

EXT. DORM COURTYARD. AFTERNOON.

George and Anielle meet Toci and Joshua between the Dog House and a couple other dorms. Toci and Joshua are holding paper airplanes.

TOCI:
We got your message. So, a
mummy huh?

They walk and discuss this.

JOSHUA:
Where did you send him?

ANIELLE:
The Sahara desert.

GEORGE:
So, your first class had
spiders, and this one had a
mummy. Who was in both classes?

ANIELLE:
No idea.

TOCI:
Maybe the professors could
tell you.

 

EXT. CAFETERIA COURTYARD. AFTERNOON.

ANIELLE:
Ugh! I wish there was an
easier-

In the sky, the guy who fell off his broom talks to a couple of peace officers.

PEACE OFFICER 1:
So, you were in a hit and run
with a flying mummy?

BROOMSTICK MAN:
Yes! What is so hard to believe
about that?

TOCI:
It couldn’t hurt to research
more about fear mongers. I bet
there are loads of books about
them in the library. How fun!

JOSHUA:
I just hope we can figure this
out before it spreads off campus!

PEACE OFFICER 2:
No, we’re taking you to be
evaluated, standard procedure.

BROOMSTICK MAN:
Don’t do this to me! Find the
mummy! He’ll tell you!

The four continue walking as the peace officers handcuff the man.

Temca Academy, Part 7

INT. STAIRWELL. MORNING.

Anielle picks up the fear monger’s body and tosses it out the window while Joshua waddles down the stairs. Anielle feels sorry for him as he slowly goes downstairs.

ANIELLE:
Don’t forget that most pain
potions don’t let you drink
alcohol…

JOSHUA:
I’m aware of that. Thanks,
Princess.

ANIELLE:
I was just trying to help!

JOSHUA:
Oh please! Your sincerity is
as fake as your breasts!

ANIELLE:
My boobs are real!

JOSHUA:
Yeah, right!

ANIELLE:
You can tell when you touch
them if an enlargement spell
has been done because the
skin is harder. Mine feelreal.

JOSHUA:
They look fake.

ANIELLE:
I’ll prove it. Feel them.

JOSHUA:
What?

ANIELLE:
Feel them so I can prove you
wrong!

JOSHUA:
No. I don’t want to touch
your boobs!

ANIELLE:
You can’t keep calling them
fake if you don’t have proof!
Feel them! Either shut up or
touch them!

JOSHUA:
I’m not gonna shut up.

ANIELLE:
Then what are you afraid of?
That you’ll be wrong? Touch
them! I’m waiting! Are you
gonna touch my boobs or not?

Toci comes in and hears this.

TOCI:
Woah!

ANIELLE:
This isn’t what it looks like.

TOCI:
Here’s your potion, Joshua. I’ll
just give you two some privacy.

Toci leaves. Embarrassed, Anielle storms out.

 

INT. COMMON ROOM. EVENING.

Anielle sulks while she watches the hologram television (which looks like a projector but it shows everything in 3-d.) The show is a wizard’s soap opera, where the two wizards are forcing a witch to choose between them. Anielle has her arms folded as she watches. Toci enters.

TOCI:
So, this is where you’ve
been hiding all day?

ANIELLE:
I’m not hiding from anyone.
Your roommate is hanging out
with my creepy roommate, and
it’s obvious she’s avoiding
me, which is probably what I
would do to her anyways.

TOCI:
You’ve been watching cheesy
soap operas all day?

ANIELLE:
No. Not that anyone will
appreciate it, but I went down
to the mail room and put an
order in for spy cameras. They
should be here in a couple days.

TOCI:
That’s great! I’m sure everyone
will appreciate it.

ANIELLE:
Not everyone.

TOCI:
Look, Joshua is just a little
edgy because he’s had to work
hard for everything he has and
your life has been relatively
easy. Plus, your attitude has
kinda indicated only people
with money matter.

ANIELLE:
Well, that’s what I’m used to.
I’m used to social gatherings
and tidy quarters. And yes, a
lot of the people I know are
kinda pretentious, but they’re
not all bad people. Back at home,
I have a large room, posh
furniture, and everything is
relatively quiet. Now I’m stuck
in a cramped room with psycho
roommate, and I’m surrounded by
noisy, hyper people all day and
night.

TOCI:
Welcome to college.

ANIELLE:
On top of all that, I’ve gotta
help save the world from the
fear mongers while I go to
classes and do homework. And I
can’t even vent to my boyfriend
about it this week!

TOCI:
I know it’s not exactly what you
were expecting, but it’ll be
okay. You’ll see. And since we’ll
have to see more of each other
anyways, feel free to vent to me.

ANIELLE:
I hate how Joshua assumes ‘cause
I have money that I have no
problems. I may live comfortably,
but it doesn’t take away the drama.
And every time I feel sorry for
him and try to help, he’s mean to
me. I want to be his friend, but
he doesn’t try to get along with
me. He’s one of the few people in
this place I wanna get along with.
I don’t wanna be friends with
everyone. Does that make me a bad
person?

TOCI:
You don’t have to be friends with
everyone. I’m not. I know you’re
a good person deep down ‘cause
you are helping us with the fear
mongers. If you want, I’ll go
brew some calming tea, and we
can chat all-

Some wizards streaking on broomsticks zoom by the window.

TOCI:
I gotta go!

Toci runs out of the room. Anielle hears a lot of girls running down the hall. Anielle laughs and goes back to her program.

Hack Attack

Someone hacked into this blog and posted some tripe about making money off of surveys. I just want to make it clear that this was not me. I would not post something like that. Please do not click in that link or give your information to those people. My password was changed to something stronger so this will not happen again in the future.

Temca Academy, Part 6

INT. TOCI’S ROOM. MORNING.
EST-Half of Toci’s room is covered in plants, pictures of animals, books on organic gardening, and things along that line. The other half looks similar to Circe’s decorations. Anielle looks at it in disgust.

TOCI:
That’s my roommate’s, Agatha.
George and Joshua enter.

GEORGE:
Agatha? She’s hot.

JOSHUA:
We heard what happened down-
stairs. So you got a-

TOCI:
Wait!
(kicks the bed)
Hey you! Time to go!

A half naked man appears from under Toci’s blankets, grabs his pants, and leaves.

JOSHUA:
I didn’t know you had a
boyfriend.

TOCI:
I don’t have a boyfriend. I
met him last night.

GEORGE:
But we were with you last
night!

TOCI:
I remembered why I was going
to the kitchen when I found
you. I was getting some ice
cream out of the refrigerator.
I went back for it, and he was
there, getting a beer, and then
next thing I remember, we were
sleeping together!

JOSHUA:
Are you gonna see him again?

TOCI:
Oh no, he’s not my type.

GEORGE:
Then why did you sleep with him?

TOCI:
He looked thick!

ANIELLE:
Alright, that’s enough! I didn’t
come here to gossip about Toci!
This is serious! We have a fear
monger in this hall! It’s possible
they’ll try to scare us. We’re going
to have to face our fears while we
hunt them down.

GEORGE:
How are we going to get pictures
of everyone’s rooms without
looking perverted or creepy!

TOCI:
We could get spy cameras.

JOSHUA:
I can’t afford that.

TOCI:
Well, someone here can afford
spy cameras for everyone…

They all look at Anielle.

ANIELLE:
(shrugs)
Okay, since I have to. At
least this will fill in
some extra time I’ll have
apparently since my boyfriend
will be busy at a conference.

JOSHUA:
What do you see in that
pompous asshole?

GEORGE:
One person with money gets
with another person with
money so they have twice as
much money.

ANIELLE:
It’s not like that!

TOCI:
Then why?

Anielle has to think for a second.

ANIELLE:
He’s always been there for
me…

JOSHUA:
Except during this conference!

ANIELLE:
Oh great, now it’s my turn
to gossip about my life! Why
do you care?

Before anyone can answer, Circe walks in with Agatha.

AGATHA:
Oh, sorry! We’ll go to Circe’s
room then!

They leave but they do not get far.

CIRCE (O.S.)
Eiww! How did this fly get
in here?

The four look at each other with apprehension. They gather themselves up and run after the fly.

 

INT. DORM HALL. MORNING.

The four come barreling out furiously trying to swat the fly. People give them strange looks, but they ignore it, just concentrating on the fly. They spread out through the hall, try to corner the fly. They use their scepters to close doors that the fly tries to get into. Finally, they corner the fly at the end of the hall near the stairwell. The fly lands on Joshua’s pant zipper, and George swats it. The fly dies as Joshua doubles over in pain.

GEORGE:
Yes! I got the fly!

TOCI:
Both of them! I can brew
something for the pain.
She leaves.

GEORGE:
Now, what was I doing before
this?
(beat)
Oh crap! The first broomstick
football meeting!

George runs down the stairs. Joshua hobbles into the stairwell. Anielle notices the fly’s body morph into the fear monger monster. She kicks it into the stairwell.

JOSHUA (O.S.)
Ow!

Anielle sees the onlookers from the fly incident, laughs embarrassedly, and goes into the stairwell.

Temca Academy, Part 5

INT. ANIELLE’S ROOM. LATE NIGHT.

Anielle climbs into bed, still mad. She lays down angrily and shuts her eyes.

CIRCE:
(singing in her sleep)The boogeyman
is here! The boogeyman is here!

Anielle puts a pillow over her ears and tries to sleep.

 

INT. CAFETERIA. MORNING.

Anielle sits by herself in a very large, crowded sitting area. She has dark circles under her eyes, and she rests her chin in her palms as she sips coffee. Joshua passes by and gives her a look of disgust. Anielle feels annoyed. Circe almost sits by her with her friend, Agatha, from down the hall.

CIRCE:
Hey, this one looks free!
(sees Anielle)
Oh, never mind.

Circe and Agatha walk away, whispering gossip. Anielle is a little surprised. Out of the window, she sees a herd of bats. As they enter the hall and deliver letters and packages to people, Anielle is pleased to see a golden bat flying towards her. She is pleased to see it is from Peter.

PETER (O.S.):
Dear Anielle, I will be very
at a conference this week, so
I will not be able to contact
you. I will be back on Thursday.
If it goes well, I’ll land us a
new contract worth millions of
pieces! Yours truly, Peter.

Anielle now feels really annoyed. She gets up to leave. As she passes Joshua’s table, she expects to see him with a bunch of his friends, cracking jokes about her, but she sees him by himself with a bottle of Old Hag whiskey. She feels a little sad now.

 

INT. DORM HALL. MORNING.

As she walks down the hall, thinking, she notices people seem to be avoiding her.

ANIELLE:
(to herself)
Jealous much?

As she says this, she notices a flash of a fear monger’s leg. She runs to the room.

 

INT. JACK’S ROOM. MORNING.

She peers in and sees her neighbor, Jack, on his laptop reading a letter, which looks like a 3-d scroll. He eventually sees her peering in.

JACK:
What?

ANIELLE:
Nothing. Probably my imagination.

JACK:
Then do you mind?

Anielle reluctantly leaves.

 

INT. DORM HALL. MORNING.

Anielle is almost at her room when she hears Jack’s scream. She runs back over.

 

INT. JACK’S ROOM. MORNING.

She runs in, fearing the worst. She sees Jack standing on his desk chair looking very frightened.

ANIELLE:
What happened?

JACK:
A mouse!

ANIELLE:
That’s it?

JACK:
A really big one! Right
there!

ANIELLE:
Oh, I’ll get it, you big
baby!

She raises her scepter and almost does a spell. Toci walks in.

TOCI:
Wait! Don’t kill it!

ANIELLE:
I have to! You know why!

TOCI:
(whispers)
That’s not a fear monger. The
fear monger put it there.
(louder)
This creature deserves a chance
at life!

ANIELLE:
You do realize we use mice in
some important potions.

TOCI:
Those mice are raised on farms,
and when they die naturally, they
get sent to potion suppliers.

Anielle rolls her eyes and notices Jack is still squirming.

ANIELLE:
Fine. I’ll set it outside.

She points her scepter at the mouse and flies it out the already open window, landing it on the ground. A moment later, a bald eagle swoops down and grabs the mouse. Toci screams.

ANIELLE:
(to Toci)
I think we should talk in
your room.

She pushes Toci, who is still grieving for the mouse, towards her room across the hall.
