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.
