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.
