Temca Academy, Part 19

EXT. CAFETERIA COURTYARD. EVENING.

The four sit at a table by themselves.

TOCI:
So, now we have to kill that
child? A little girl? That’s
horrible!

JOSHUA:
Well, they’re not as skilled
as adults, so it should be
easier to do, right?

GEORGE:
No way! Don’t you watch horror
movies?

ANIELLE:
Someone on campus must’ve adopted
a new kid, so we’ll keep an eye
out for that. In the mean time,
Valentine’s Day is coming up. I
think we should something for all
the single people on campus.

TOCI:
We could host a speed dating
party!

JOSHUA:
That’s a great idea! We can all
coordinate it. Oh wait, are you
and Peter doing something?

ANIELLE:
No. Peter thinks Valentine’s Day
is a marketing ploy. It makes me
sad sometimes. Last year, they
had this really pretty Joseph
DaVinci bracelet. He wouldn’t buy
it for Valentine’s Day and would
wait for my birthday. It sold out
a couple days before Valentine’s Day.
So, it’ll be fun to do something
festive that day, for once.

No one says anything. A moment later, AMBER (a little girl with pale skin, dark, curly hair, and cold eyes) comes by with LOUIS (a man who looks a lot like her).

AMBER:
(sings)
I found my dad, and I am glad!
I will help him clean each room,
and watch all of the terror loom!

She grins mischievously at them as she skips by. Louis looks really depressed.

LOUIS:
Oh, hi Joshua. I just found
out via a DNA spell that I
have a daughter.
(sighs)
See you at work.

Louis walks away very sadly.

JOSHUA:
Oh great! I gotta kill my boss’s
daughter!

 

INT. COMMON ROOM. EVENING.

The four have turned the common room into a speed dating lounge with about twenty tables and forty chairs. The four sit in the front of the room, where they have a registration table. Anielle puts up a photo of Peter.

JOSHUA:
Why would you put the Valentine
hater up?

ANIELLE:
I know he’d want people to know
that I’m a host and not a participant.

JOSHUA:
But he’s never there for you!

ANIELLE:
I gotta give it more time!

JOSHUA:
Why? You’re only going out with
him to make Daddy happy. That’s
also why you are a business major!

ANIELLE:
Well, you’re right about the major…

JOSHUA:
Ha! I win!

ANIELLE:
You don’t win!

George and Toci clear their throats. All of the participants are there and staring at them.

GEORGE:
Welcome to the party! I’m George,
and this is Joshua, Anielle, and Toci…

Most of the men enthusiastically say hi to Toci. Toci smiles at them but shrugs at the other three.

 

INT. COMMON ROOM. EVENING.

The last round of the speed dating is on. Amber enters, but the four stop her.

AMBER:
I want to clean this room!

GEORGE:
Not now. You’re a kid, go play!

Amber doesn’t move. Joshua takes out his scepter and magically shoves her out. Everyone stops to stare.

TOCI:
She’s fine! Okay, time’s up!
Everyone turn in your cards.

Everyone turns in their cards and files out. Anielle looks at Joshua with a curious expression.

JOSHUA:
What?

ANIELLE:
Professor Persephone thought I
should change majors too. Maybe
you’re right.

JOSHUA:
Glad I could help.

Anielle smiles graciously at him, and he smiles back.

TOCI:
Wow! A lot of guys wrote me
in! It’s nice to know you’re
wanted, huh?

Amber tries to walk in again.

GEORGE:
No, you’re still not wanted.

He magically shoves her out of the room again.
