EXT. DAY- RAINING
INT. A LONE POOL HALL
Cassie walks to the pool hall, wearing her gray hoodie over her head, dazed with emotion. She comes inside and sits close to the window.
From afar, WADE(17), Katrina's adoptive brother, a tall, lanky boy with curly black hair with strange but defined features, is sitting at a round table smoking with his stoner friends. He notices Cassie sitting alone by the window. He gives off a mean look, feeling confused of why she's there. He walks up to her. Then Wade agressively slams his hand on the table and looks at Cassie, dead in the face.
What are you doing here?
CASSIE(takes off her hoodie)
Just sitting here. Why?
Nobody asked you to come here.
I can sit anywhere I damn please
Well, this is my territory. And I rather you leave
This is bogus. Is this about your sister, Wade? Because you're acting really idiotic right now.
You take my word for it. I have my own reasons of not liking you.
You didn't even really know me.
Would I need to know your life story?
Wade....get out of my face
Don't come back here!
INT. DANIELLE'S HOUSE-LIVING ROOM
Danielle is sitting in the dining room, reading a dictionary while her boyfriend, JEFF(18), a handsome, athletic boy with an edge to him, is watching t.v.
Jeff, would you pay attention
I know you feel nervous about the exams but we really gotta get on point with things
JEFF(coming on to her)
Why are getting all serious?
It's just that I've been studying a lot this week
Maybe you should take a break
Cassie is laying on the bed, staring at the ceiling, her mind racing with thoughts.
DANIELLE'S HOUSE- LIVING ROOM
Hey Cass, what's up?
Cassie turns over to the bed, letting her emotions sink out.
Everything's okay. I hope I'm not interrupting something.
DANIELLE'S HOUSE-LIVING ROOM
DANIELLE(sorting out papers)
Oh no, I'm just really busy with studying...Jeff saw what happened at the pool hall.
Hey, it's not a big deal. Katrina goes out all her way just to prove she hates me.
She's just upset that's all. All of this will pass through.
Well.....I just wanted to hear your voice
I know you did. I'm always here for you, Cassie. I'll keep in touch.
CASSIE'S HOUSE- BEDROOM
Yeah okay. Talk to you later.
CUT BACK TO:
DANIELLE'S HOUSE-LIVING ROOM
Danielle hangs up the phone, heavily thinking in thought.
Is she okay?
She's just going through a lot, lately. It'll be best if I'll tell you, later.
Jeff softly strokes Danielle's back.
She's going to be fine
(sighs) I just don't want this thing to blow out of proportion.
INT. ABANDONED HOUSE
Wade and one of his stoner friend, JACOB, a stocky boy with long, messy hair, are walking around in a deserted neighborhood, apart from the rest of the town. It is known as a hangout spot for the kids where there are at least six broken-down houses down the road and through the woods, there is a closed-down warehouse. The two boy go towards the 2nd house of the three on the other side. Jacob stuffs a bong in his jacket and looks around as he enter the house.
You sure there's no one on the lookout?
Come on man, this place is rigged. People barely go by this road.
The right kind of place to light my bong
JACOB(holds his nose)
Ugh, this place smells like shit.
That's the smell of comfort, my friend. (hands Jacob the bong) Wanna hit this?
ABANDONED HOUSE-LIVING ROOM
Wade and Jacob is sitting on the couch, dazed with satisfaction from the armoa they smoked.
Dude, where did you get this herb? I'm like blazin'.
WADE(zoned out, eyeing the bong)
The magic ingredients to this is kept secret, my man. (gets up from the couch, stumbles a bit)
I'm gonna go take a piss.
Then a dark, looming shadow illuminates in front of Jacob, coming into full attention. Before he can react, the figure brutally slits his throat and rips it out with it's bare hands.
Wade checks himself out in the mirror, trying to see the red in his eyes. He turns on the sink and splashes water on his face, wiping the strong effect from the drug. The light blub suddenly flickers. Wade taps on it two times to keep the light steady. He focuses on the mirror and out comes behind....
The hooded figure with a baseball bat
CLOSE UP THE MYSTERIOUS FIGURE'S LIPS
HOODED FIGURE(soft female voice)
You're so....weak. You can't even hold your own without your patheic buddies around. Now that was one strike. (kneels down) Let's see if you can take more.
Well, that job's done
