Temca Academy, Part 17

INT. DOG HOUSE. NIGHT.

The party rages on with tons of people. The halls are crowded, and Anielle has trouble moving through the hall. She meets George in the hall.

ANIELLE:
Seen anything yet?

GEORGE:
Yeah, there was this fine Asian
girl and a brunette chick with huge-

ANIELLE:
Really? You think I was asking
about that?

GEORGE:
I heard someone scream once, but
it turned out to be Toci and
some dude.

ANIELLE:
What about Joshua?

GEORGE:
Uhh…
(beat)
Is the punch good? I think
I’m gonna get some punch. You
want some punch.

ANIELLE:
Is he drinking?

GEORGE:
Nah, there’s a girl…

ANIELLE:
So? I have a boyfriend. It’s
about time he got some action.

GEORGE:
Okay, well, turn around.

Anielle turns and sees Joshua flirting with Circe. She gets mad and throws a shoe at him.

JOSHUA:
What was that for?

ANIELLE:
Have you been drinking?

JOSHUA:
Just one glass.

Anielle becomes furious and goes into a nearby bathroom.

GEORGE:
Wait! That’s the men’s room!

He follows her in.

 

INT. MEN’S ROOM. NIGHT.

The bathroom is surprisingly empty. Anielle braces herself over the sink. She is avoiding crying and looks a little frightened. George enters.

ANIELLE:
I was making him better, and
now he’s going back to alcohol.
He’s supposed to be working, and
he’s flirting!

GEORGE:
Toci drank more and is having
sex. Stop all this denial! It
doesn’t matter if you wanna act
on the feelings or not, you have
a crush on Joshua! You wouldn’t
react like this if you didn’t!

Anielle thinks about it for a moment, ready to deny it, but she analyzes her feelings and realizes that he is right. She collapses onto the sink and cries. George awkwardly gives her a hug.

ANIELLE:
Why? Why does it have to be
him? Why don’t I feel like
this about Peter?

GEORGE:
I don’t know. Who knows why
anyone likes anyone! Like, why
do I like Asian chicks? I just
think they’re hot! But you
probably like him for deeper
reasons.
(beat)
Hmm…Whenever I was upset, my dad
used to tell me, “Stop being a
baby and do your job!” Now that
I think about it, it shouldn’t
have made me feel better. Prolly
why my parents divorced.
(beat)
I’m not very good at this. I wanna
make you feel better because you’re
my friend, but I have no idea what
to say.

Kristof mysteriously emerges from a bathroom stall.

KRISTOF:
Perhaps I can help. It is, after
all, my field.

ANIELLE:
You were the one that made Joshua
flirt with Circe!

KRISTOF:
(slyly)
Of course not! He must’ve
done that on his own.

GEORGE:
You made me lose that broom
football game!

KRISTOF:
I wish I could take credit for
that! I mean, I would never
dream of doing such a thing!

ANIELLE:
Wait a minute, what if the little
girl who dropped her doll is a
fear monger?

Kristof makes an odd face.

GEORGE:
Hey, you turned out to be
helpful after all!

KRISTOF:
Excellent! Now, if you’ll
excuse me…

He tries to leave, but George and Anielle draw out their sceptors. Kristof draws out his own scepter. A man walks in and is surprised to see the stand off.

BATHROOM MAN:
Never mind, I can hold it!

The man leaves quickly. Seizing the opportunity, Kristof uses his wand to disarm George and Anielle. Anielle’s scepter ends up breaking. George and Anielle get nervous.

ANIELLE:
You’re not gonna get away with
this! There’s a dorm full of
people!

KRISTOF:
For now. You know, sometimes our
greatest fears are brought on by
nature itself…
