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.
