Taddeo: The Last Demon Hunter (Working Title)

This story is set in a future where Demons and Humans live in the same place, with the demons treated as second class citizens by the ‘pure’ humans. The protagonist Taddeo, a human, world is turned upside down upon the disappearance of his girlfriend Ruth.

This is the first 10 pages of what is to be a 70 page feature length script.

 

1. EXT. Night – MANSION

We are in the courtyard of a mansion on a secluded island, the weather is stormy, it is in the darkness of night, lit by the brightness of the moon and the occasional flash of lightning. We SEE a line of new Bentley cars, appears to be at least twenty to thirty, pull up one after another. The chauffeur of each of the cars get out and open the back doors. The rain continues to pour throughout the sequence. Lightning strikes when we see a woman with long brown hair exit one of the cars. We see them walk in single file across the cobbled floor. The drivers all step in to their cars in a military like fashion, and wait. We SEE three man standing by the large old wooden door, one either side and one directly in front of it. The man in the middle steps forward

MIDDLE MAN

(raised voice)

Come one, come all. Mr Baker is waiting for you all to come inside and join in with the festivities. Please accept these bags of cash upon entry, as a sort of thank you for turning up this fine evening.

The two other men either side of the door open it, and produce bags of cash which they hand out one by one to everybody who enters. MIDDLE MAN smiles and walks in behind everyone. The door slams shut. Sinister laughter is heard, which fades down by the next scene.

2. INT. BEDROOM. DAY

TV plays in the background, we see a boy with blonde hair, in his mid-teens on top of his bed reading a book.

‘..in other news more people from the Babbington area have been reported missing today, the number of people thought to be missing has surpassed double figures more after this..’

An advert continues to play in the background. A woman pokes her head round the door, she is in her mid-forties, she is a short woman with blonde hair.

MOTHER

What do ya want for breakfast?… Perhaps lunch is a better word to use, it’s past 12 you lazy boy.

The boy flops his book towards his lap and lets out a sigh. Before turning to the woman and smiling.

SON

Anything, I’m sure whatever you make will be lovely

He smiles again before picking up his book and continuing to read, his mother speaks again

MOTHER

Heard anything about Ruth, TADDEO?

TADDEO (TAY-DEE-OH) stares blankly in to the book, puts the book down, shakes his head and slumps his shoulders. He turns the Television off. He gets under the duvet covers and turns his back to MOTHER. MOTHER slowly walks over to the bed, sits down on the edge of it and puts her hand on his shoulder.

MOTHER

There are plenty more fish in the sea, like my father always used to tell me, if they don’t want you for you, then they aren’t worth the time of day.

MOTHER places her hand on TADDEOs shoulder. She gets up and goes for the door. She stops at the door.

MOTHER

You been in touch with Darren yet about your demon apprenticeship? … Tay?

TADDEO turns around to face MOTHER.

TADDEO

I don’t want to get a job though mum, it sucks and i really wanted to just spend some time this summer writing and hanging out with my mates. Plus I’m depressed at the moment…

MOTHER

You’re getting a job TADDEO… And I really don’t care how upset you are either!

TADDEO

(quietly)

That’s so unfair.

MOTHER

Life’s unfair TADDEO, deal with it. Oh you can make your own breakfast now, you can thank your attitude for that.

She slams the door, the light is also more dimmed now. TADDEO stands up and opens the curtains. The sun shining through is bright, he winces.

TADDEO

(to himself)

Demon hunter..? yeah right… Games tester here i come!!!

3. Ext. Night – Woods

There is a sealed off area in what appears to be some woods, there are a number of policeman as well as a white tent. The area is lit mainly by car headlights, as well as some temporary small floodlights aside the tent. We see a Policeman in close discussion with another man who is dressed in a long black leather coat.

POLICEMAN

..kind of weird i would say, especially because we haven’t seen marks like this in years.

LEATHER COAT MAN

I wouldn’t say it was weird at all, but you know, you called the right man for the job. You got a Demon problem, you call Darren every time

DARREN winks at the officer, smiles and gently punches him in the arms. Darren takes a old silver lighter and a cigarette from his jacket pocket. He puts the unlit cigarette in his mouth.

DARREN

But in all seriousness, you have a T-32 standard case of suspicious activity. Nothing to be too alarmed about, however the stench coming off them is poisoning the atmosphere

DARREN takes the cigarette out of his mouth and takes a large nasel inhale, staring in to the eyes of the policeman before exhaling in to POLICEMAN’s face.

DARREN

Can you smell that?

The POLICEMAN looks at Darren before attempting to copy the same breathing he just witnessed.

POLICEMAN

No? I can only smell the pine of the forest..

DARREN laughs a fake laugh

DARREN

HA – HA.

An awkward 5 second silence ensues, DARREN is staring in to the eyes of the POLICEMAN, whilst he is doing everything to avoid making eye contact. DARREN smiles before lighting his cigarette, he begins smoking it.

POLICEMAN

Anyway.. We will continue our investigation, but the main bulk of it is on you, if there are Demons out there, you are the best in the business at catching them

Another uniformed figure approaches the two, his strides are long and over emphasised. without speaking or acknowledging DARREN he thrusts some important looking papers underneath POLICEMAN’s nose

POLICEMAN

If you’ll excuse me Darren…

DARREN

No problem.

POLICEMAN walks off with the other officer back towards where the cars are parked. DARREN looks in to the night sky, the moon is bright and clear, until it is covered by a cloud, which appears to upset him. He looks towards the tent before walking over to it. We SEE him enter the tent, and almost instantly exit the tent. He looks around before dissapearing in to the forest.

4. INT. HOUSE – living room day

Television plays.

‘…It appears as though the search for the 22 reported missing persons, WILL continue throughout the day, and again, long in to the night, if you suspect somebody is missing OR encounter any suspicious behavior, do not forget to report it, this is Emilia Brocklehurst, Bed24 News, Beddington… thanks Emilia, and now to Dustin with the sport…’

TADDEO picks up the remote and turns the Television off, He picks up a bowl which contains a spoon and the remains of cereal. He walks in to the kitchen, he places the bowl down on the side. There is a message on the fridge door, ‘DARREN – 07666898666 call him Tay..’ TADDEO opens the fridge door, picks up a cocktail sausage and puts it in his mouth, also gets a bottle of cola out, he then shuts the door.

GIRL

Have you called him then Tay?

TADDEO turns around to reveal a girl in her early twenties with long blonde hair. She is scowling at TADDEO. He pretends to look afraid and begins trembling.

TADDEO

No mum, please don’t kill me ! I will do anything!

There is a pause before they burst in to laughter. The GIRL walks over to the sink and washes her hands, still chortling.

GIRL

Please don’t quit your day job to become an actor… Oh wait, you don’t have one!

TADDEO

Ohhh, good one Sam!!

Both continue to giggle. TADDEO gets a glass out of the cupboard and starts pouring his drink in to his glass.

SAM

But you know if you want you might as well invite your girlfriend over too !

TADDEO

ouch, low blow !

SAM

I’m just messing don’t worry yourself little bro. You will find someone, prettier, funnier and who will make you happier. Anyway I’ve got turnip related work to do, have fun doing whatever it was you were doing!

SAM winks at TADDEO and smiles before heading for the door

TADDEO

Have you heard from Ruth at all Sam?

SAM stops and turns around, her smile has gone

SAM

No, honestly haven’t heard anything from her, no one i know has in all fairness…

TADDEO

Oh okay, no worries, have fun working on the turnip farm

TADDEO winks at SAM, she winks back and puts her thumb up before exiting, TADDEO has a drink from his glass, walks over to the fridge again and looks closely at the message on the door. He takes out his phone and enters the number on his phone, saving the number in it. TADDEO shakes his head and sighs before returning to the living room. TADDEO sits down and begins changing the channel on the TV, he lets out a yawn and lies down having one cushion under his arm. He shuts his eyes, instantly his phone rings. He picks it up.

TADDEO

Hello ? … What about her? … What do you mean missing? …

TADDEO slowly moves the phone from his ear and places it in his left pocket. He stands and looks around before putting his hands on his head. He rubs his face before striding out of the room at pace. He grabs his coat opens the door, walks outside, then shuts it. We SEE outside, it’s foggy. The house is a small detached one with a moat running around it. He crosses the short narrow bridge to cross the moat before striding down the hill with his hands by his side, before breaking out in to a run.

5. INT. POLICE STATION – DAY

The station is quiet. It’s full with officers who appear to be sitting around not doing a lot. Two officers are imaginary duelling by the water dispenser, another has his cowboy hat pulled over his eyes with his feet up on the desk. There is also a table of five officers and they appear to be playing cards. There is a large queue at the front of the building, everybody in the queue is distressed, pushing and shouting at the secretary. She is sat behind a large bullet proof glass window, she stares through the glass expressionless. At the front of the Queue is an angry Old man and his wife.

OLD MAN

But my son is missing, you need to be looking for him, a few years ago it was Vampires, last year it was Gnomes, and now you’re unit is blaming Demons, it’s not good enough, you need to find my son!!!!

SECRETARY

We are doing all we can to find your son. NEXT.

Her expression doesn’t change. The group behind push the old couple out of the way. There is a Tall man with an off green skin colour along side 4 smaller man with equally different skin colour.

TALL MAN

Are you looking for my brother Edmond Parslex? You must be doing something, he’s been missing for days, it’s so out of character for him to leave the nebular and enter the town as it is, something isn’t right. YOU MUST HELP !

SECRETARY

We are doing all we can to find your brother. NEXT.

TALL MAN

You can’t do this? I NEED TO FIND EDMOND!..

His voice trails off as the group is dragged out of the building by security. Next in the queue we SEE TADDEO, his face is pink and he keeps blowing his hands. His voice is hurried

TADDEO

Is there any news on Ruth Winters? Has she been reported missing?

SECRETARY glances to her monitor to the right of her head. She looks down, before handing TADDEO a sheet of paper underneath the glass. He looks confused but picks it up, he opens his mouth to speak

SECRETARY

NEXT !

TADDEO is grabbed by security and thrown out of the door, he almost drops the paper but keeps hold of it as he hits the ground. He grabs the side of his head and gets back to his feet. He looks to where the security guard just was, takes an angry step towards the door, TADDEO see he’s already back inside and stops on the spot. He turns around to SEE large group of people, some are sitting, however most are in heated debate. There appears to be two groups of people, we cannot make out the faces of either groups, TADDEO’s vision is blurred. We HEAR the arguement clearly though.

RIGHT SIDE MAN

If your kind hadnt shown up hear then we wouldn’t be blaming you, just get lost and go back to wherever you came from, it’s our loved ones you’re stealing !

LEFT SIDE MAN

You ignorant idiots, we have come to make friends with your kind and this is the thanks we get? We’ve not taken anyone, it’s more in your races genes to be kidnapping people!!

RIGHT SIDE MAN

(Angry)

WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY?

LEFT SIDE MAN

You and the rest of you puny soft skinned friends are idiots and do not deserve the land you live on!

RIGHT SIDE MAN

I’ve heard about enough of this!!

Both sides end up charging in to each other and a mass brawl ensues outside. TADDEO stumbles out of the way of the fight but still manages to get punched.

VOICE

(shouting)

THE DEMONS TOOK OUR FRIENDS!!!

TADDEO climbs back to his feet and backs away again. He looks around, the area is fenced off. He looks up the steel fence, reaches his right arm up grabs and begins to climb over the fence. He cuts his arm on the way down the other side and falls to the ground graising his arm. His face gradually becomes more bruised. He gets his phone out of his pocket and we see him frantically dial a number. He begins to speak, but his voice is unheared. We HEAR the arguments and shouting over the conversation. TADDEO looks paniced and frantic, puts the phone down and runs off in the opposite direction to the station in to the distance.

6. EXT. WOODS – Afternoon

TADDEO has his phone to his ear as he is running

TADDEO

(shouting)

Pick up the damn phone!!!

He looks tired, sees a wall and goes to lean on it. He is breathing heavily, and loudly. He pulls his phone down to his side, re-dialls and puts his phone back to his ear. He stands and waits. We hear the other voice in this conversation.

TADDEO

Hello is this Darren?

DARREN

Who is this?

TADDEO

It’s Taddeo, i’m just ringing up about placement this summer being a demon hunter with you? I think my mum has been in touch already?

DARREN

Ah yes Taddeo, your mum did get in touch. But i don’t have any places for you at this moment in time…

TADDEO slumps down against the wall, tears begin to form in his eyes.

TADDEO

You’ve gotta be kidding, i need to be a demon hunter, i wouldn’t let you down, please Darren, please..

DARREN

Sorry, maybe another time Taddeo, anyway i’m busy, got to go, take care. bye.

The phone is put down by DARREN, TADDEO lets the phone drop from his ear on to the ground. He holds his head in to his hands and crys. He wipes away his tears, puts his phone in to his pocket, he sighs and looks to the floor.

TADDEO

Back home i go…

TADDEO slowly walks off in to the distance.

FADE TO BLACK.

7. ext. Ruths house – Afternoon

FADE IN.

This scene is set in the past. It is a warm summers afternoon, TADDEO is wearing shorts and a t-shirt. He’s smiling as he approaches the house. He rings the door bell, then re-adjusts his hair. Ruth opens the door, she is smiling, flicks her long brown hair out to the side, almost in slow motion, then runs out and hugs TADDEO. The hug ends and Ruth stands back.

RUTH

Good evening handsome

TADDEO

Good evening to you too beautiful

They smile and hug again, they walk down the path hand in hand.

TADDEO

Sooo, what do you wanna do tonight?…

8. INT. HOUSE – Living ROOM

TADDEO is watching TV, his hair is messy and his facial hair is beginning to grow, he is in a vest and boxer shorts. The TV plays…

‘ … went missing following the events of a week ago, rumours circulate about the dissapearences, was it demons? was it ‘The Villain of Beddington’ ? All we know is that the families want their sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers back home safe and sound soon before all hope is lost…’

TADDEO lies there watching the TV with no flicker of emotion.

TADDEO

(under his breath)

Ruth… Ruth why did this have to happen? Please be safe..

He begins to look upset, he takes deep breaths before getting up. He walks downstairs in to the celler. It contains a washing machine, some old paints, in the far corner of the room there is a punching bag and some weights. TADDEO punches the punching bag, tamely, before following it up with a hard left hand, the bag swings gently before TADDEO continues to punch the bag until his face is red and beginning to sweat. He looks over to a different corner of the room, there lies pictures of TADDEO when he was younger with a man smiling, as well as boxes stacked up which are labelled, ‘DADS STUFF’. TADDEO walks over to the corner, he stumbles. We SEE a flash back of him with his Father fishing in a lake, them hugging and laughing for a couple of seconds before returning to the room. He rubs his eyes before walking closer to the pictures. He holds up the picture of the family all smiling. He smiles and places the picture back down.

MOTHER

I miss your father so much Taddeo.

TADDEO turns around and sees MOTHER walking down the stairs and over towards him. She puts her arms round him.

MOTHER

I bet he’d be so proud of you, i just know it, he always used to say, ‘my boy is gonna be just like his old man’, and Taddeo, you are just like your father.

He moves away back towards the punch bag and punches it. He looks back to MOTHER who is watching him.

TADDEO

Ruth is missing mum.

MOTHER looks shocked, puts her hand to her mouth and lets out a shocked noise. She shakes her head.

MOTHER

No.. she can’t be Tay, she can’t be, i was talking to her mother only the other day…

Drew’s Life – Mates, Booze and Women (Working Title)

The script is for a short TV series based in Derby, which follows a young man and his teenage struggles and his life, this particular episode involves getting alcohol for a party which he has been invited too.

This is the pilot script and is ever changing. Enjoy!

1. EXT. STREET – DAY

We see ALEX and DREW standing outside a Bargain Booze. We SEE a sign which says “WELCOME TO DERBY” close to the shop. Alex is a 16 year old boy, and is distinctly unattractive, he is around five foot, five inches tall. Alex has very pale skin which is covered in a mixture of freckles and spots. Alex is wearing a large suit jacket, and an equally large suit shirt, which isn’t tucked in. He is wearing light blue jeans and some smart black shoes. His hair is styled into a combed, greasy side parting. He has his hands in his pockets and is pacing up and down the pavement outside, he is breathing heavily and is sweating. He pauses to re-comb his hair, then begins pacing again. Drew chuckles.

DREW

What the fuck have you done to your hair!?

ALEX

(Ignoring Drew)

What… what if i don’t get served?

Both Alex and Drew speak with Derbyshire accents. A difficult accent to distinguish as typcial for the region. Drew is a 17 year old teenage boy, he is wearing a grey hoody zipped up half way. He has his head looking towards the floor, his phone is in his right hand, and appears to be texting. He keeps his left hand in his hoodies left pocket. He glances up to see Alex pacing, sighs then begins to speak.

DREW

Don’t worry about it pal, you da mannn! No but seriously, we need this for tonight, it’ll be shit if we cant bring any booze. Need Frank to bring the money still though, doubt he will the forgetful git.

ALEX

(under his breath)

This is a shit idea…(to Drew) if i get id’d i’m fucked i’ll be the laughing stock of the school, fuck looking like a complete dick.

Drew shakes his head and looks down at his phone again, we SEE him texting, glancing up every few seconds to speak to Alex.

DREW

Stop being pathetic. Alright?

ALEX

No. I’m not being fucking pathetic, I can’t go in!

Alex pulls out his inhaler and takes and massive intake of air, shakes his inhaler and does the same inhale as before. He then mutters under his breath

I’m not being pathetic…

Alex looks down at the ground. Drew then pats Alex on the back, and speaks to him in a soothing voice.

DREW

Look we’ve gone through this already, I cant go in and neither can Frank. You know that.

ALEX

Yeah but…

DREW

Mate, you want some tonight don’t you? Well if we have the booze, the ladies will swarm over you mate, it’s simple logic. Trust me! … Plus you look atleast 25, i would serve you.

ALEX

.. You really think so?

DREW

I know so!

Drew struggles to suppress a smile and grins at Alex, who appears more relaxed. Drew then places his hand on Alex’s shoulder, then points in the opposite direction of the shop. Alex turns his head to look. We SEE FRANK walking down the street towards them. He is around 6 feet tall, he has light brown shaggy hair. He swaggers, rather than walks. Frank speaks with a Yorkshire accent.

Frank

How do boys?!

DREW

Howdy! You alright mate?

FRANK

Sound ta lad, got some good news and some bad news … Well the good news is that i got that money for the booze.

DREW

Ah sweet, nice one Frank. Hear that Alex?? I knew you would pull through!

Drew smiles, then embraces Frank. Frank laughs, before he stops, and becomes serious.

FRANK

Errm, can’t make the party tonight boys, missus is messing me about, sorry lads i just cant.

DREW

You are kidding? Fuck sake, about as useful as a chocolate fireguard you are.

Alex stops pacing before stopping still, he broadens his shoulders then pushes his chest out. He turns his head towards both Frank and Drew, they look back at him. Alex takes a deep breath.

ALEX

Let’s do this.

Alex strides up to the front door and enters Bargain Booze. Frank and Drew look at each other before laughing. Drew’s laugh is very loud, he laughs for a good time before he starts to stop, leaning forward and holding his sides.

DREW

I’m sorry but, fuck waiting out here, i need to see this.

Drew follows Alex into the shop. Frank is still laughing, but instead moves to a wall and leans by it. He searches his pockets, and pulls out a condom. He smiles, then quickly puts it back in his pocket.

FRANK

(to himself)

It better be a good night now, ha ha!

2. INT. BARGAIN BOOZE – DAY

Alex is at the alcohol section as Drew walks in. He picks up a four pack of Carling, before analysing it, then putting it back down. The shop is small, with only one woman working who is in her late fifties. The SHOP WORKER is doing some paper work behind the counter. Alex glances at the woman, she looks back, Alex quickly moves his eyes and begins staring into the drinks cabinet, he starts to breath heavily, then he wipes his sweaty brow. He picks up a crate of beer. Alex is very slight in build and makes them look very heavy. He then goes up to the woman and puts the beers on the counter. We HEAR clinking in the background. Alex nods at the woman, and smiles. He puts on a deep voice.

ALEX

Lovely day darling.

She doesn’t reply, instead looks confused. She looks at him up and down.

Shop WORKER

Got any id young man?

Alex’s smile recedes into a frown, he pats his pocketsĀ  a couple of times, produces his wallet, he looks through there to try and find it. We HEAR a loud snigger. Drew is hiding far away from the counter, he is laughing an uncontrollable silent laugh.

ALEX

Oh silly me! Must’ve left it in my wife’s car, let me just go and fetch it!

SHOP WORKER

Hmm, o.k young man.

Alex turns on the spot before walking to where Drew is hiding. Drew is still laughing, he has tears in his eyes and his face is bright red. He begins to stop however as Alex comes over.

DREW

Your wife’s car? Ha ha! … CLASSIC!!

Drew bursts into laughter again.

ALEX

Fuck off…

DREW

Oh bless you kiddo, right, i’ve got a plan, you go up to the counter again and make conversation, buy something small like some sweets ok? Leave the rest to me.

ALEX

Okay.

Alex walks towards the counter again, he takes some Haribo and places it on the counter. He drums his fingers on the counter, he looks over at the magazines and sees a Beano in the middle shelf.

ALEX

Oop..

Alex leans over and takes it with his right arm, before brushing down each shoulder with his hands.

ALEX

(whispering)

For the kids.

He winks at the Shop Worker, she smiles, then laughs. Alex winks again. She then scans in the items, whilst shaking her head. We HEAR more clinking, we SEE Drew with bottles stuffed underneath his hoody, he is also holding a large bottle of Vodka in his right hand. The Shop Worker looks across at Drew. Drew notices, his eyes widen.

DREW

Shiiit.

Drew runs out of the shop door outside, Alex looks over at Drew, his mouth wide open, he glances back at the Shop Worker who is now very close to Alex. He looks towards the door, picks up the comic and sets off running

ALEX

You are a crazy bastard..! Ha ha!

The Shop Worker stands in the door frame as she sees Drew, Alex and Frank run down the street. Drew passes off one of the crates to Frank.

DREW

Take this, and fucking run!!! ha ha ha !

3. INT. BEDROOM – NIGHT

Drew is in a bedroom. He appears to be slightly drunk. The room he is in is pink, there are posters on the wall of David Beckham and Twilight. There are also polaroid pictures of loads of girls on the wall. On the floor there are some pink hair straighteners and a make-up bag. Drew is wearing skinny jeans, a cream polo shirt buttoned up to the top, white pumps and a thin white belt. His hair is spiked up carefully with wax.

He is texting on his phone to one of his mates, whilst a girl tries to wrap her drunken body around him. She appears to be falling asleep.

DREW

(to himself)

See what Alex and Frank think about this..

We SEE Drew text, “fink i should Freddie’s gf mate?” to be received by Alex and FREDDIE. (Not Frank)

4. INT. LIVING ROOM – NIGHT

A Large room, with about 40 young adults dancing and drinking. There is a large LCD television in one of the corners of the room, with two brown leather sofas facing towards it, there are chairs surrounding the other edges, although most have been moved in where most people bought them closer to talk to each other. There are a few chairs lying on the ground, near them there are broken crisps all over the floor. Along the edges of the room floor are empty cans which are crushed, there are also empty beer bottles and one empty bottle of Vodka.

Alex is drinking a bottle of Jack Daniels which he found in the drinks cabinet inside the house, in his other hand is a can of Fosters. The top two buttons on his shirt are unbuttoned, revealing a pale chest. He is dancing with FIONA, a very popular girl who is also drunk however, not drunk enough to accept Alex’s advances. Alex winks at Fiona and nods his head at her, before pointing at his chest, then winking for a second time, whilst continuing to smile.

Fiona laughs before using her left hand to push him, before leaving the room, we then SEE Alex reach for his phone.

ALEX

(to himself)

Fuckin’ hell, him and jenny? ha ha! Well i never, the sly git. So fit as well.. so so fit.

He texts back to Drew “Go for it mate!!!! Make sure u tell Sarah its over though…”

5. INT. BEDROOM – NIGHT

Drew looks down at his phone, he sees sending failed on his screen, followed by the name Sarah.

DREW

(whispering to himself)

don’t forget to end it with Sarah, don’t forget to end it with Sarah…

JENNY

Come here you!

Jenny smiles, puts her hand behind Drews hair and pulls him towards her, then begin to make out. Drew feels through her hair, as the other takes off her skirt. They begin rocking back and forth, quite awkwardly at first, before getting into a rhythm.

We HEAR the bed squeaking, then the background music from downstairs stops. The squeaking continues.

6. INT. LIVING ROOM – NIGHT

FREDDIE is older than most of the people there, he is 20 and still living at home. He has an arms tattoo and regularly visits the gym, he has a shaven stripe in his short hair. We see him standing on a chair, Stella in hand, trying to get everyone to be quiet. Alex being really loud trying to talk to Fiona, although she has her back to him, Alex continues, until the rest of the room quietens down. The huge television which people were watching has also been turned off. Silence falls on the room.

FREDDIE

Has anyone here seen my missus, only I got a text from a cheeky little fucker, asking whether he should sleep with her or not. WHO KNOWS ANYFINK?

Mumbles start to go around the room, before somebody calls out “UPSTAIRS!”

7. INT. STAIRS – Night

The staircase is bombarded with people rushing up it, a sense of excitement is in the air, with Freddie leading the pack. The staircase wall is filled with pictures of Jenny and her family. The floor is littered with cans and bottles, and the carpet also has a few new beer stains.

8. INT. JENNIES Bedroom – NIGHT

We HEAR the thumping noises on the stairs, however we also HEAR Jennies moans getting louder and louder until the door bursts open. Jenny jumps off the bed and covers herself in the duvet, whilst drew stands there naked with his white socks still on. Freddie is standing in the doorway, head tilted slightly forward, arms tensed, and fists clenched. He starts to move towards Drew and pulls out a knife from his back pocket and points it at Drew. everyone else by this time has started coming into the room, but at the sight of the knife start shouting for Freddie to put it away and to calm down. Freddie pricks his finger on the blade as blood pours out down the knife.

DREW

Look mate, we can work this out, i’m sorry ok? I’m so sorry, please..

A sinister smile appears on Freddie’s face. before pointing the knife to Drew’s throat

FREDDIE

i’m this close.. to slicing your fucking’ throat. Tell me what we can work out.

The crowd falls completely silent. We HEAR a police siren outside as it gets louder and louder.

FREDDIE

Next time buddy. Next time.

Four policemen run up the stairs and find the two in a stand-off, Freddie drops the knife and holds his hands above his head. Drew also has his hands raised. Freddie doesn’t struggle, but on officer seems to be overly aggressive and wrestles him down to the ground before pinning his face into the carpet.

9. EXT. FRONT OF HOUSE – NIGHT

Everyone stands outside to watch him go, Freddie doesn’t take his eyes off Drew, as the engine starts and the car begins to pull off Freddie winks at Drew. Some people from the party leave, making it seem more empty. Freddie turns to Alex and looks worried.

ALEX

Well, that made tonight fun didn’t it! .. Errm I mean, you alright pal?

DREW

Not really, i’ve messed up big time, now Freddie, a fucking psycho is after me, no doubt gonna deck me, or worse.

Alex is swaying about and is clearly drunk.

ALEX

You’re my friend. I’ll have him.. where is he? I’ll chin him for you pal… because that’s what pals are for..

Alex pats his hand on Drew’s shoulder, before throwing up on the ground. Drew laughs, before patting Alex’s back as he continues to throw up.

DREW

Oi, sit down a sec.. feeling a little bit better?

ALEX

I love you Drewy.

DREW

Alright… I love you too.. Oh shit, Jenny’s here, shit, fuck. What do I say? … Bollocks…

ALEX

Tell her she’s fit from me.

Alex has his eyes shut and says it very loud. Jenny pulls Drew’s right arm, and walks with him to the back of the house.

ALEX

Best night ever.

Drew and Jenny are standing very close, they stare into each others eyes. Jenny brushes the back of her right hand on Drew’s right cheek, as she grips Drew’s waist with her left hand. Drew opens his mouth to speak, before Jenny places her finger on his mouth, preventing him from speaking. We see a cat walk past in the background on a fence, then come over to them both as it sits on the ground looking up. Jenny giggles, before going down to stroke him.

DREW

You do realise i’m a dead man walking right? and all because of you! ha, i’m kidding.. What’s going to happen to psycho then?

Jenny stands back up to face drew, leaving the cat lying on it’s back from where she has fussed him.

Jenny

He’s history, I didn’t actually realise he was completely mental, I mean who points a knife at somebody?? Would’ve been a really good night as well, but there is ALWAYS ONE! Always… Anyway i’m blabbering, how about we do something cute one time? Maybe go and see a movie together one time?

Drew’s cheeks go bright red, his eyes widen, he glances to the side before looking at her again, she smiles back and they lean in, then kiss. After they kiss they hold each other for a few seconds before Drew speaks again.

DREW

Nothin’ shit though alright?!

They both laugh, and walk back inside to the party hand in hand.

10. INT. DREW’S ROOM – MORNING

A sleeping bag is on the floor, with Alex inside it. We HEAR snoring from Alex. We SEE a desk with a computer on it, along with an Xbox 360, the desk is messy and is littered with loose change, Xbox games, empty beer bottles, school books, an electronic shaver and some open letters. Drew is awake, he is lying with his hands behind his head staring at the ceiling. He is smiling, he looks slightly rough this morning, however not as bad as Alex. He takes out his phone and notices the battery has run out. He leans over Alex to try and get the charger but nudges his face and wakes him up. Alex groans, then stretches, opens his eyes briefly before shutting them again and wrapping himself round in the sleeping bag.

ALEX

Ughh, my head fucking wrecks.

DREW

(whispering)

Yeah man same, just pass us the charger please?

ALEX

Yeah alright if you stop shouting at me.. Jesus.

Alex rubs his head before slowly moving his arm out of the sleeping bag towards the direction of the desk. he picks up an Xbox controller, Drew smiles and shakes his head, before being handed the charger.

Drew

Cheers… Messy night mate, messy as fuck! Well, first week of school hasn’t been too bad has it? I pulled my ex, almost got killed by a fucking psycho, and got 46% in my first assignment!

ALEX

Trust me mate, it’s going to be a good year, trust me.

Drew and Alex smile at each other and nod their heads before laughing, Alex then puts his finger to his lips.

ALEX

Shhh, sleep time.

DREW

Ha! No chance, i’m getting up, i’ll be downstairs if you need me!

Drew stumbles out of the room, phone and charger in hand. He knocks Alex as he walks past before laughing, Alex responds by putting two fingers up. As Drew walks down the stairs he notices a third pair of shoes at the bottom, a girls pair of shoes. Drew scrunches up his face and raises his right eyebrow.

DREW

(mutters to himself)

hmm.. who’s are they? … weird.

11. Int. Living room – morning

Drew opens the door, we SEE a typical room set up, a television in the corner and two sofas facing it, a coffee table is in the middle. It has two cups of tea on it. The sofas also have 2 people on them, DREWS MUM is sat on the sofa, she is a small woman, about 5ft, with brown hair. She has a lot of make-up on her face, despite it being morning. She is sat staring at Drew as he enters and looks angry. The room is completely silent. Another girl is sat on the opposite sofa. She is very attractive, has shoulder length blonde hair, pouting lips, bright blue eyes. She looks upset. Drew looks shocked, drops his phone charger and stays completely still in the middle of the door frame.

DREW

…Sarah??? … Shit.
