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.
