FADE IN:

 

EXT.DEEP SPACE

 

We open on total Blackness. A sea of stars spread across the infinite depths of space.

 

A large brownish planet appears.

 

ANONYMOUS V.O.

This is the earth over 2 billion years ago… It is dead and barren. But when the nine planets of the solar system were in eclipse…

 

MS/LS

 

We move back to see the planets aligned straight across each other

 

ANONYMOUS V.O.

A powerful mystical energy…

 

LS/MS

 

A blinding light cuts into frame. Travelling in unbelievable speed…towards the solar system

 

ANONYMOUS V.O.

Unleashed by an unknown source… Hits the earth.

 

MS-INT.EARTH

 

It lights up the earth’s atmosphere… Striking down somewhere in central Africa   A booming echo resonates across the dusty plains.

 

ANONYMOUS V.O. 

The force of the impact increases the atmospheric oxygen content…

 

MS-EXT.SPACE

 

Earth, Seen from space… rocks with shock waves

 

ANONYMOUS V.O.

An unlikely Multicellular organism forms… evolving into trillions of creatures, crawling on the earth’s surface…

 

(The brownish planet becomes richly coloured and fertile)

 

ANONYMOUS V.O.

Mutation of those multi-nucleus organisms… over the years… Have enabled us to become the dominant species on the planet. The process… however, is slow. It usually takes thousands and thousands of years. But something happened that the natural order did not intend… The powerful hand of destiny… had a different plan…

 

ACT 1, SCENE 1.1

 

EXT.STREET-NIGHT

 

A tall woman running
                           through the narrow streets. The police, in high-speed cars… chase her. 
 INT.POLICE CAR
 RADIO
                           V.O.
Attention all units. Attention all units.

She goes to the end of the road and stops… Her eyes turn glowing green. In a split of a second… the metal gates explode into small fragments. She runs through.

 
P.O.V: ANIMILISTIC THERMAL
                           HEAT VISION
 We see the Police officers pour
                           out of their cars, guns thrust before them

 

OFFICER 1

(Police radio) Pursuit is no-where in sight, over… Did you see that explosion? Is she carrying a pipe bomb or something? The pursuit is armed and dangerous, over.

 

OFFICER 2

Roger. We better find her, Jason.

 

OFFICER 3

Yeah, man. I am sick and tired of doing paper work.

 

EXT.HOTEL/ROOFTOP-NORMAL VISION

 

We hear an ascending sound of a Helicopter from above. A big, shadowy creature moves away and slowly transforms itself into a person, then leaps into total darkness

 

INT.HELICOPTER

 

HELICOPTER PILOT

Did you see that? Man! What was that thing?

 

They look shocked

 

NEWS REPORTER

It…. It looked like a bear. And then it became a human. Ramon, did you record it?

 

RAMON

(Holding the video Camera)

Yes, I did. Man… I have never seen anything like this before. 

 

The pilot nods his head in agreement

 

HELICOPTER PILOT C/U

(Whispers) We are imagining things…effects of late night flying…{laughs nervously}.

 

Scene 1.2

 

EXT.HOTEL/ROOFTOP-CONTINUOUS

 

We see ROSHINI in black leather, her long ash brown hair gliding in the wind. She is on the rooftop of tall Hotel.

An ancient… Olive-skinned Shaman; AISHAH, enters … Covered in a beautiful paint of art works on her entire naked body.

 

AISHAH (In thick Egyptian accent)

That’s a great job we pulled. Are you keeping the art piece safe?  

 

 

 ROSH

Yeah.

 

ROSH pulls out a long cylindrical cover from her bag and tosses it over to AISHAH, who grabs it, looking impressed 

 

AISHAH (In thick Egyptian accent)

You’re learning fast, my dear. I’ll contact AZMI. Take care.

 

ROSH nods at her. AISHAH transfigures into a big raven and flies away. ROSH looks at the beautiful lights of Singapore city and lets out a sigh.

EXT.SKY/AUSTRALIA-DAY
 
The brilliant sunrays brighten up the night sky… of Australia.
 
EXT/INT.PERTH-HOUSE/BALCONY-DAY

 

A dashing man, JOSHUA is standing by a balcony…

 

C/U

A yellow light is glowing in his eyes.

 

JOSHUA V.O.

Sometimes I feel as though I am in some kind of a Parallel universe. Like maybe it was a story I read. Then I think about Orbing to Rome later, to catch a match between Juventus and Roma, and… The reality hits me.

 

INT.HOUSE/ROOM-DAY

 

He walks into the house and we hear a female voice from down stairs

 

MRS LOKE

JOSHUA Honey. Did you see my keys anywhere? I can’t seem to remember where I put it. JULIE…get up from the floor, go and sit in the sofa, now…  JOSHUA?

 

JOSHUA looks irritated as he falls into the bed

 

JOSHUA

Did you check your bag, mum? Go check your bag…it should be there.

 

MRS LOKE

Yeah, I found it. Thank you, honey. Take care of your sister ok? JULIE! How many times am I suppose to tell you? Get your ass on the sofa.

 

We hear the door closing. JOSHUA puts on a headphone, nods his head to the Rap artist, 50 Cent’s loud music and stares into space

 

JOSHUA V.O.

It’s all still very blur to me.

 
INT.GCC/LABORATORY-DAY

 

Flash backs of a bald-headed white man replacing a bottle full of green liquid with another form of similar looking solution. A female comes in and takes the bottle away…. we see the label and it reads… Taxanom.

 
EXT.SINGAPORE/HARBOUR-NIGHT

Flashbacks of A Chinese man unloading the Cargo… He carries out a box full of items.

 

C/U

There is a GCC label on those items.

 

JOSHUA V.O.

If I remember correctly… It all started on October 15, last year. It was something I ate… maybe. I’m not even sure. I remember having high fever, fits…. I even blanked out at one point.

INT. GO WAN RU’S ROOM-DAY

INT.NORAZURA’S ROOM-DAY

 

JOSHUA V.O.

AZURA levitates above her bed as she sleeps. She opens her eyes and realises that… her eyes opens up wider in fear.

 

 

 EXT.MADRID/SPAIN/STREET-DAY

INT.JOSHUA’S ROOM-DAY

 

JOSHUA V.O.

At times, I think about the others. There must be others like me. Are they hiding away too? Of course they are. The truth is, they'd just be like me, living on the run always looking over my shoulder. I did not use to live life like this. I was a carefree teenager, always bored, trying out new things. I don’t want to hold on to the past. It’s all gone and will never come back.

 

(He opens his eyes)

 

JOSHUA V.O.

All I hope now is they’re all out there somewhere and they’re okay.

 

SCENE 3

 

EXT.HIMALAYAS-DAY

 

It is a cold afternoon… we have a short gaze towards the horizon of soaring snow-capped peaks, and a sea of clouds sinking in repose in the deep valleys of the Himalayas. We hear a soft-spoken voice from the sky.

 

SKY O.S.

(Speaks Dzongkha; English subtitled) SHABDRUNG NGAWANG NAMGYEL (God King of Bhutan)…. Do not worry. I am here…Have faith.

 

The cold wind blows over as silvery smoke. A young man in gho, standing tall with out stretched arms, opens his eyes

 

RIDZAL ZINAL ABIDIN

(Speaks Dzongkha; English subtitled) Till now I seek the answers…seeking without hope. Yet, you ask of me to have faith. Tell me lord, of what, I must do.

 

SKY O.S.

(Speaks Dzongkha; English subtitled) You are the chosen one. The answers you seek, you will find. It will come, to show the light, in your darkest hours. Have faith, my child…. Have faith.

 

The wind is getting stronger as RIDZAL slowly turns. There is a rush of air... He bends his knees a little… the ground moves in waves of rings… He propels himself through the air and flies away in electrifying speed 

 

ACT 2, Scene 1.1

 

INT. MILLENNIA BOARDING SCHOOL,

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES / CLASSROOM-DAY

 

Opens three weeks later in a noisy classroom. Students in dark maroon coloured uniforms are excitedly talking about the day’s events. The middle-aged gentleman, SIR WYATT TAN in the front is watching the students in silence. One by one, the students stops talking and look over

 

SIR TAN

Every time I step in here, I just don’t feel like I am in the college’s top class. This is a zoo! Just look at you people…you are an embarrassment to me.

 

PRASHANT and ZACCHEUS ELIJAH, at the back, roll back their eyes and mimic SIR TAN. Others near by giggle softly

 

SIR TAN

Do you know that I could actually hear you maniacs, all the way from the cafeteria? What will I tell Lady Albright? Where am I going to put my face, if She realises that this “so called top class” is a fake? Don’t you people have anything better to do, then talk? …. Aren’t you supposed to be studying for your upcoming A-Levels?

 

DHANA LATCHMI (DINO) takes out her General Paper notes pretending to read it, in fear. ASLIN’S Empathy powers activate and she starts to feel DHANA’S feelings. While ZACCHEUS, who sense DHANA, smiles wickedly… as he materializes her fear by putting images of SIR TAN Sending her out off the classroom

 

In DHANA’S mind…

 

SIR TAN

DHANA! You good for nothing, useless moron! Get out off the class, now!

 

DHANA gets up in fear… tries to walk but ends up tripping over ROSH’S bag... Falls face forward. The whole class starts laughing at her misfortune

 

In reality…

 

DHANA opens her eyes and looks around in shock and her face is wet. She is still sitting in her chair. ASLIN feels her growing fears… She can’t help… But feel sorry for her. She glances at DHANA who is visibly shaken

 

SIR TAN

ASLIN? Do you have a problem? Why are you looking at DHANA, when I am talking to all of you?

 

DHANA looks up at him. She opens her mouth to speak but no words come out. DHANA is still too afraid to look up, she continues pretending to read. ZACCHEUS is confused

 

SIR TAN

Don’t you people have any respect for me? Do I look Invisible to you?

 

Some students cannot help but smile at that comment

 

They are thinking: If only he has the special power to do that… To become invisible… he may actually understand them somehow

 

SIR TAN looks at the students in disbelief

 

SIR TAN

You’re actually smiling at my misery! You think I’m telling a joke? Just great… I’ll leave then! I’ll get another teacher to become your home tutor. What is the use of me, teaching you, if you think I am some kind of a clown?

 

Sir Tan slams his books and files on the table, and walks out of the class.

The students look stunned at his behaviour, not knowing how to react. RIDZAL, however, looks calm as he takes out his art homework to complete it.

 

SHAZRENA

What the hell… What are we suppose to do now? Just stare at each other?

 

ROSH

Aren’t we doing that already?

 

ASLIN turns to DHANA again

 

DHANA

Don’t be afraid.  He’s gone.

 

DHANA pops her head up in surprise

 

DHANA

I know…. Why were you looking at me? How did you know?

 

ASLIN turns white, fearing she has exposed her special powers… Not realising that she has just exposed it to the stunned looking… ZACCHEUS. He feels a shiver running through his body… He is dumbfounded as watches ASLIN.

 

ASLIN

Nothing. Why? Can’t I look at you? Oh…Never mind.

 

She turns back to talk to ASHIKIN. DHANA goes back to reading her notes, not realising that the new girl, THANALETCHUMI has been watching her with a strange look on her face.

 

LETCHUMI slowly turns her attention to ZACCHEUS, who is still looking at ASLIN in shock…

 

She smiles. Thinking… Things are going to get more interesting from now onwards…

 

ROSH yawns

 

ROSH

I’m bored… Can we go to the Cafeteria and buy something, since he’s not here? I’m hungry.

 

SHAZRENA

I’m hungry too.

 

SHAZRENA looks to see if anyone else is going out of the class. But everyone is still talking about SIR TAN. HASBULLA laughs at NARENDARAN’S comments

 

HASBULLA

Yeah. I do think he looks like a clown.

 

SAMUEL KWONG

I agree.

 

They laugh

 

SHAZRENA

Let’s go ROSH. We’ll make the first move and then the others will follow.

 

She gets up to leave and ROSH follows suit. TINA, who is busy doodling on her GP notes, stops her work and turns to check out what FADHLI has been doing…

 

TINA

You look tensed. What’s up…? If you don’t mind tell’n me?

 

FADHLI looks up in surprise

 

FADHLI

Yeah?

 

He runs his hands over his thick light brown hair… a glint in his Caribbean aqua blue eyes. He smiles at her

 

FADHLI

How do I look now, babe?

 

She smiles back; gazing him

 

TINA

Perfect.

 

Scene 1.2

 INT.SCHOOL/CAFETERIA-DAY

 We see the school’s noisy cafeteria. ROSH leaves SHAZRENA, to talk to some of her friends. SHAZRENA queues for a drink and over hears a conversation between SIR RUPERT MENON and MISS CARINA JOAN LEE

 

MISS LEE

Did you catch the news last week…. about the werewolf being involved with the robbery in the Art Museum?

 

SIR MENON

Yes I did. But come on CARRIE, it’s an obvious hoax! A werewolf involved in the stealing of an art piece? A werewolf?

 

He laughs

 

MISS LEE

Well... They did show a clear footage on that creature turning into a person. You may laugh SIR, but I am telling you, it is a werewolf.

 

SIR MENON laughs out loud

 

Sir MENON

I can’t believe you CARRIE. It’s a hoax! Nobody believes in that crap these days. Even, if they do exist, lets say for arguments sake…. You won’t find them here in Singapore; In Hollywood maybe?

 

The sound of their voice descends as they move away. SHAZRENA stands there, looking uncomfortable about the conversation. Yet, excited about the idea of a werewolf

 

ROSH

What are you staring at?

 

SHAZRENA

Uh…Nothing. Just wandering, that’s all. About… SIR TAN.

 

ROSH

What is there to wander? He’s gone crazy!

 

SHAZRENA

Yeah, I know…can you believe he actually did that to us? The last I remember of a Teacher walking out of a class is in my Secondary school. But that is like one of the worst schools in Singapore and you can imagine how my class would have been.

 

ROSH

Before this, I never had any experience of that. That was really unsophisticated of him, to behave in such a way. Smashing his books down? Unbelievable. (She shakes her head in disbelieve) By the way… Can you follow me to West Mall today?

 

SHAZRENA

No, I’m sorry ROSH. I have to work today.

 

ROSH

(In disappointment) Ok… Then, I’ll ask DHANA to follow me. I can’t believe you are still working there…

 

SHAZRENA

What’s wrong? I like working there.

 

ROSH

It’s not that. It’s just…. You know working with those Lifeguards. You told me one of them is disturbing you all the time?

 

SHAZRENA

(Lets out a sigh) Yeah… That useless idiot! But I don’t want to quit my job because of him.

 

ROSH

Whatever, SHAZY. I’m just telling you for your own good… Find a better job somewhere else. The truth is… I don’t even know why you are working, in the first place. It’s not as if… Like you need the money or something. Come on! Your dad’s rich!

 

SHAZRENA rolls her eyes

 

SHAZRENA

Yeah, I know… But it is not my money…. It’s not even his, for the matter! It’s my grandpa’s. And I have some… Dad issues, so… I don’t want to talk about it. Well, anyway… How many periods of GP do we have today?

 

ROSH grins, thinking about the reply to that last question

 

ROSH

Three.

 

Scene 2.1

 INT.SCHOOL/TEACHER’S DORMITORY-NIGHT

 

Teachers walk down the corridors, mumbling to each other. The moonlight shines brightly down the Glass dome, high up the hallway. The sound descends over the air-conditioned room, filled with individual cubicles.

 

We enter the teacher’s dormitory with Oakwood doors at both sides. There is a name attached at each door. We come to a stop at the door, which reads:

 

SIR WYATT WILLIAM TAN

Discipline Master

 INT.SIR TAN’S ROOM

 

The door opens. SIR TAN is lying on a cream coloured couch with hands locked tightly behind his head. He seems to be in deep thought. VICE-HEADMISTRESS MRS CAROL PILLAI walks in.

 

MRS PILLAI

SIR TAN, are you all right?

 

SIR TAN in the same pose

 

SIR TAN

Yeah. Just wandering…. MRS PILLAI, what do you think of my students?

 

MRS PILLAI pauses

 

MRS PILLAI

They are a pretty good bunch. I mean…they can be a pain at times. But on the whole, they’re fine people.

 

SIR TAN is still not changing his position

 

SIR TAN

You know what?

 

He sits upright, hands tapping his knees

 

SIR TAN

I think so too.

 

He laughs softly

 

SIR TAN

I, kind of scared them a bit today.

 

He looks down at the carpeted flooring

 

SIR TAN

They were making a lot of noise and I just went mad. Now I think about it…. I should not have behaved in such a manner. After all, they are my students.

 

MRS PILLAI

You walked out of the class?

 

SIR TAN nods

 

MRS PILLAI

You told them, you had enough and you are planning to leave them?

 

SIR TAN looks taken back. MRS PILLAI smiles at him and then pulls over his chair and sits down facing him

 

MRS PILLAI

You are wandering how I know about all of this? Well, lets say I may just know how you must have felt at that moment.

 

SIR TAN

You’ve done that before?

 

She nods. SIR TAN gawks in amazement at her confession

 

SIR TAN

Well? Tell me… Does it work?

 

MRS PILLAI pauses

 

MRS PILLAI

Yeah, it does. It’s a small shock treatment for those little devils. You’ve just put the worst fear into their head. It won’t be long before they start to follow, your every word. Trust me, Sir Tan. They are smart kids. They are not going to let you go that easily, especially since the exams are so near.

 

SIR TAN

I hope so, MRS PILLAI. I really do.

 

Suddenly the doors flung open. It is MISS LEE, appearing petrified. She is sweating heavily, a black forelock of hair falling across her Oriental features. She notices MRS PILLAI

 

MISS LEE

I’m sorry MRS PILLAI. Can you excuse SIR TAN, for a moment, it’s an emergency?

 

Both SIR TAN and MRS PILLAI stand up, looking confused

 

MRS PILLAI

Sure CARRIE. Is there a problem?

 

We hear screams and see glimpses of people running. MISS LEE clears her throat and tries to breathe at the same time. She unsuccessfully ends up choking and coughing

 

MRS PILLAI

Calm down CARRIE. Do you need a glass of water?

 

MRS PILLAI goes over to SIR TAN’S table to pour a glass of water and hands it over to her. She takes in big gulps of water and clears her throat to speak again

 

MISS LEE

There has been a terrible accident. I mean… its horrible, but, but I don’t think it is an accident.

 

Her face appears pale as a ghost and is shivering in fear

 

MISS LEE

It’s the werewolf! It had to be the werewolf… oh.

 

SIR TAN

What werewolf?

 

He glances back at quickly at MRS PILLAI, confused… MISS LEE stands there frozen, shocked at her discovery

 

SIR TAN

Have you called up the ambulance? What exactly happened? Has anyone been injured badly?

 

He picks up the phone to dial 995 as MRS PILLAI tries to calm her down. MISS LEE shakes her head in despair

 

MISS LEE

It’s a bloody Murder!

 

She drops the glass and faints, as the shaken up MRS PILLAI, tries to grab hold of her from crashing face forward. SIR TAN puts the phone down and helps MRS PILLAI

ACT 3, Scene 1.1

 

EXT.SCHOOL / CONTINUOUS-NIGHT

 

We hear the loud roaring noise of the ambulance alarm. Several police cars are parked in the college car park. There is whisperings of both students and teachers everywhere. The Headmistress, LADY CRYSTAL ALBRIGHT is helping the police officers by providing answers to their questions.

 

We skim through some of those teachers and students who are holding on tightly to one and another, grieving. Our eyes dawdle over to the flagpoles… Its covered in… what seems like; blood. There is a gory figure of a brutalised student, hanging lifelessly up the pole

 

STUDENT 1

(Weeping) Oh… My god! What’s happening here? Oh… the blood, so much blood. En sh'Allah.

 

STUDENT 2

(In panic) I can’t watch this anymore.

 

She tries to leave the school, but two police officers at the gates stop her. The gate is swamped with news reporters, trying to get a glimpse of what is going on in the school.

Some of the officers were busy trying to prevent the reporters from coming in.

 

We are directed away from that scene to two officers …  CID OFFICER RENGA and CID OFFICER SAPPHIRE DE’PARIS deeply in conversation

 

CID RENGA

What do you think, DE’PARIS?

 

CID DE’PARIS

The perpetrator just doesn’t seem to match any human signature. I might be wrong, but it looks like the victim is attacked by some kind of a… wild animal.

 

CID RENGA nods and he goes over to sit at the near by bench

 

CID RENGA

It doesn’t make any sense at all. No human has that kind of strength to carry out this act. That boy RAZAHLI should be around 110kg…we maybe dealing with more than one perpetrator here.

 

He wipes his face with his hands and rests his face down on it

 

CID RENGA

Who will do such a thing? How old is RAZAHLI, again?

 

CID DE’PARIS

Eighteen.

 

CID DE’PARIS sits down beside CID RENGA and pads gently at his knee

 

CID RENGA

SHIVA is eighteen too.

 

CID DE’PARIS

How is he doing? He is in Pioneer JC now, right?

 

CID RENGA

Yes, he is. He’s still trying to fit in, I guess. Kids nowadays, just can’t stay away from trouble. The principal called me to school twice.

 

CID DE’PARIS

Why?

 

CID RENGA

He’s caught smoking. Talk about being dumb! I mean… If he’s that desperate to smoke, can’t he find a way to not to get caught?

 

He looks up at her shaking his head and rolling his eyes. CID DE’PARIS laughs

 

CID DE’PARIS

 May be, it runs in the family…

 

CID RENGA pretends to throw his note pad at her and she laughs again, catching hold of it.  They see a young teacher, vomit in the drain and some male students helping her.

The OFFICERS get serious again. CID RENGA starts to flip back and forth his notes, to search for clues. But there seem to be none

 

CID DE’PARIS

We should go back to the office to check with DR FEN, about the Forensic case report. May be, he can give us a more logical explanation.

 

CID DE’PARIS heaves a sigh

 

CID DE’PARIS

This is going to be a long day.

 

Scene 1.2

 
INT.GIRL’S DORMITORY-DUSK

 

MRS PILLAI V.O.

The dormitory gets pretty dark at night…even with all the lights on…students are usually doing their work…homework you think…work comprises of chatting on the phone...

 

INT.DORMITORY/GO WAN RU’S ROOM-DUSK

 

We see WAN RU is talking on the phone with her latest guy friend, while her roommate is desperately trying to fall asleep.

 

WAN RU

(On the Phone) Yeah? I can’t stop thinking about you too.

 

INT.DORMITORY/TINA’S ROOM-DUSK

 

TINA is practicing her fighting skills on the punching bag.

 

MRS PILLAI V.O.

Sharing latest gossip…checking out the guys… keeping up with the newest trend…in fashion.

 

INT.DORMITORY/JURANA’S ROOM-DUSK

 

JURANA teleports to MISS LEE’s room and back quickly with a piece of paper… resulting in the formation of black smoke all around her. She places the paper on a scanner and scans it, with a wide grin on her face.

 

MRS PILLAI V.O.

Well, in…just about everything else…

 

INT.DORMITORY/ELEKTRA’S ROOM-DUSK

 

Behind the closed door, VERA is shaking the chilli bottle, to pour it on her fried chicken… EVANESCENCE’S song; EXODUS is being played out loud:

 

EVANESCENCE

 

Here in the shadows
I'm safe
I'm free
I've nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where I don't belong
 

 

(VERA ends up spilling chilli on herself)

 

VERA

Shit!

 

MRS PILLAI V.O.

So you can pretty much guess how loud the girls’ dorm would be. 

 

The next door opens; DAZLINA walks in looking bored wearing her favourite silver pyjamas. NURDIANAH puts her storybook down and smiles at her

 

DAZLINA

I’m sorry darling… I can’t sleep. Am I disturbing you?

 

DIANAH

Still thinking about Razahli?

 

DAZLINA lets out a loud sigh on fall into her bed, beside her

 

DAZLINA

How can I not think about him? That poor guy… God knows what he must have gone through, being attacked by that animal.

 

DIANAH

How can you be so sure that it’s an animal? Some sick psycho could have done it.

 

DAZLINA feels very uncomfortable of that idea and she turns away

 

DAZLINA

Come on DIANAH. They are talking about it all over the news. You know… The “werewolf”?

 

DIANAH laughs

 

DAZLINA

Why? It could be real.

 

DIANAH’S heart skips a beat 

 

DIANAH

Yeah, it could. And so is Santa clause and the little green man!

 

DAZLINA realises it’s a waste of time to convince DIANAH. She turns back to look at her

 

DAZLINA

DIANAH? I am scared.

                                   

DIANAH

Me too.

 

Not knowing that they are both more afraid of exposing their powers

SCENE 1.3

 

INT.GUY’S DORMITORY-NIGHT

 

MRS PILLAI V.O.

The guys…dun get us started on guys…oh well…they drink? Smoke? And most definitely the girls…the creatures they worship… Imagine how quiet they will be…

 

BRYAN is asleep in his room… Dreaming about the actress ANJELINA JOLIE in a two piece swim suit

 

XUE EN

(On the phone) I got the pirated version, man. But I still need the password.

 

We see NICK LAI and JOSEPH SOO playing poker with a group of guys. They’re excitedly talking about the latest video game in town… LEFORT DAVID is hiding in the end of the dormitory, looking out for teachers through his x-ray vision 

 

DAVID

Where the hell is Sir Tan? I know he is here somewhere

 

He then dashes out to his friend’s party…. As ARMAN emerges out from his room… Wearing only a towel, tied around his waist. A girl follows him out… Buttoning up her blouse

 

The girl

Guess… I’ll be leaving then.

 

She smiles, gazing at him

 

ARMAN

Ok…

 

There is a sound of running water in a room… There is a big poster of a sexy Smallville star; KRISTIN KREUK… behind the closed door… A tall figure is washing bloodstains off from his hands… We see the mirror in the front; it is FADHLI…

 

Flashback… FADHLI is hit from behind, he goes down through the Jaguar, parked… Setting of the car alarm.

 

(He is scrubbing of the blood… But it doesn’t seem to come off easily)

 

Flashback… We catch a quick glimpse of a man dressed in black suit… He pulls out his gun and starts shooting.

 

(FADHLI’S hands are clean now… He splashes the tap water on his face)

 

Flashback… We see them fight. The man in black
                          
                           kicks… FADHLI blocks.
 
(We see FADHLI’S reflections on the mirror… Water dripping down,
                           his face)
 
Flashbacks… The man in black picks the half-conscious FADHLI up by his
                           face… and holds him up like
                          
                           a rag doll.  The two are face to face. FADHLI opens his eyes and looks
                           right at
                          
                           the man in black… 
We see a fresh
                           cut
                           on FADHLI’S face healing before our very eyes… leaving not even a scratch. The man in black drops him down
                          
                           in shock.
 

(He clasps his teeth tight as if he is in pain… He grips the sides of the basin strongly)

 

Flashbacks… His skin swells and vibrates, trembles
                          
                           from pain… or perhaps something else… FADHLI moves. It almost didn't transmit, so smooth and fast, inhumanly
                           fast.
Suddenly…
                           a sword like steely claw, about some nine inches long… commences from the
                          
                           very flesh just above his knuckles. A stunned pause as he and the men in black look down at the daunting claw. 
Then FADHLI drives it home, sinking up to his hand into the man in black.  
 
(FADHLI walks out of the bathroom… shutting the door behind him) 

 

Scene 2.1

 

EXT.EAST COAST PARK-DAY

 

Next day. Many are in their swimwear… Just strolling around the beach… roller balding and cycling.

 

INT.LIFEGUARDS STATION-DAY

 

We enter the Lifeguards station. We see SHAZRENA… Doing some administration work on the computer. Her colleague JAYANTHI sits on her table

 

JAYANTHI

So… How was school?

 

SHAZRENA

(Not looking up) Great.

 

There is a bit of a commotion outside… Lifeguards running out.

 

SHAZRENA

(Still not looking up) Did someone drown?

 

JAYANTHI

I don’t know… Lets go out and see.

 

SHAZRENA

No, I can’t. I’m too busy… I have to finish this shit by today. Why don’t you go out see?

 

JAYANTHI Gets down from her table and runs out… After awhile later, she comes back running

 

JAYANTHI

It’s a shipwreck! An Oil tanker is on fire!

 

SHAZRENA jerks up her head.

 

SHAZRENA

What?

 

JAYANTHI

They’re calling for help… Come on! Come and see!

 

EXT.EAST COAST PARK-DAY

 

They both run out… There is a huge crowd on the beach, looking over the sea. They are all in shock

 

A white man (in blue swim trunk)

The oil tanker is gonna explode in any minute now!

 

A teenager (in red shorts)

Someone should help those people! Why aren’t the coast guards here yet?

 

SHAZRENA starts to feel really uneasy. She looks over at JAYANTHI, who is talking with a Malay man. She slowly backs away from the crowd and jumps into the sea… She starts swimming towards the shipwreck in extreme speed.

 

Her ability to breathe underwater, allows her to swim submerged, away from the public eyes. She feels the heat transmitted from the fire…

 

She searches for survivors and she finds two men stuck in the fishing net, which is being pulled underwater by heavy machinery. She searches around for a sharp object to cut the net and finds a piece of glass… She uses it to cut the net and frees both the men, who swim up on their own.

 

She begins to search for more survivors… She finds two more unconscious and she helps them to the shore. Some bystanders come over to help the two men to breathe. The men wake up…

 

The bystanders look around to find the brave and strong girl who saved men’s lives… But the angel is nowhere to be seen.

 

SCENE 2.2

 

INT. Millennia Boarding School,

College of Arts and Sciences-NIGHT

 

Time passes by quickly. LADY ALBRIGHT is looking out the window at the Fantastic night-lights of the Singapore city. The phone rings… she picks it up. It is CID RENGA on the phone

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

Hello sir. What can I do for you?

 

CID RENGA

I’m sorry to disturb you at this hour.

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

No, no. It’s all right… I will do anything to help you to solve this case.

 

CID RENGA

How have you been doing, my Lady? How are the students if you don’t mind me asking?

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

Of course you may ask of them officer Renga. And yes, I guess I’m holding on well. That’s a real shock to me actually, considering what happened in school today. As for the students… Well, they’re frightened. I have arranged for special counselling programs for them.

 

CID RENGA

That’s good. That will help them manage the situation. Well… I wanted to ask you about the records of some of your students. Maybe of those who are close to Razahli?

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

Yes, sure I can help you with that. You want it now… Because, I can send it to you by fax?

 

CID RENGA

Oh, that will be good. Thank you. It will be quite helpful for the case. Then… I am sorry again, for calling at this hour.

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

No problem.

 

CID RENGA

Guess, I maybe calling you again, if you don’t mind? And thank you again, bye.

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

Yes, you can call me, if you need my help as I have said earlier. Take care officer Renga.

 

She puts the phone down to sit back in her black leather couch. Suddenly… she hears a faint howling outside… She goes to the windows to get a closer view

 

INT/EXT.STREET-NIGHT

 

The silvery moon shines high in the night sky; she sees a shadowy creature, up on the road, its bright red eyes watching her. A shiver runs through her body when she realises what it is... She runs out of the room

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

CASSIE! CASSIE? 

         

                                                 CUT TO:

 

LADY ALBRIGHT’S French maid CASSIE De’lANCY puts down her duster and turns around.

 

MAID CASSIE

Yes, Ma’dam?

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

Its back!

 

MAID CASSIE

What’s back, Ma’dam?

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

The wolf, I was telling you about. The one I have been seeing out my window on every full moon. It’s here again… watching me. Oh, Cassie… What am I going to do? What does it want from me?

 

MAID CASSIE in disbelieve

 

MAID CASSIE

Ho, I’m sure its nothing Ma’dam. It may just be a stray dog.

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

Why don’t you believe me Cassie? Come on. Go to my office and look out the window.

 

MAID CASSIE shaking her head, she goes to her office and comes back out a while later

 

MAID CASSIE I couldn’t see any wolf Ma’dam. I am telling you, it’s just your imagination. The poor child’s death has affected you..

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

It can’t be. Cassie, I’m telling you… I saw it with my own eyes. It was staring right at me.

 

MAID CASSIE Yes. Yes, Ma’dam. I hear you. Lets get you to bed. You need the rest. Yes? Yes. I believe you. Come on Ma’dam.

 

                                                  CUT TO:

EXT.STREET-NIGHT

 

Outside the College, the night creature moves slowly into the neighbouring park. The thick rain clouds veil the moon.

 

Behind a tree, the wolf transforms into a young man with icy pacific blue eyes. It is HAN SEN, a 400-year-old Lycan…

 

With his unclothed mega-muscular body exposed, he looks around for any bystanders before running off into the darkness

 

SCENE 2.3

 

INT.GENOMAX-CYBER CORPORATION-DAY

 

COUNTESS LYDIA HOLSTEIN-GOTTORP-ROMONOV, the Managing-in-director of GCC is having an urgent meeting. Sitting around the round glass table are the top military and police officers and ministers of ASEAN Nations

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

I am glad that we have come to a good solution to the problem. I thank you again for accepting my invitation and coming all the way.

 

She looks over to her assistant RAMGURU. He nods at her

 

COUNTESS Lydia

Well then… Lets go and have dinner, shall we? RAMGURU will take you to the dining area. RAM?

 

The visitors look at RAMGURU and he smiles back at them warmly

 

RAMGURU

Sure.  It’s this way, gentlemen. 

 

Once the visitors leave, COUNTESS LYDIA calls the Chairman

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

The meeting is over and… it’s done Sir. They’re off to have dinner.

 

(We are not able to hear the Chairman)

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

The information was right. It was the boy…

 

She appears serious

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

You do not have to worry about that Sir. He’s already taken care of.

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH emerges from behind a hidden door. COUNTESS LYDIA signals her to be quiet. She nods at her and stands by the entrance

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

The name? It’s MD RAZAHLI BIN MD SOFIAN. The minister have accepted our proposals and agreed to close that case. Yes? Yes, I’ll take care of it too Sir… goodbye.

 

She puts the phone down and turns around to face OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH

Its true. The students have mutated.

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

All of them?

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH

No, just a few of them from graduating arts classes...

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

This is bad. We need to do something about them quickly, before things get out of control.

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH

It already has.

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

What do you mean?

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH

They are powerful and they know it. It won’t be easy to handle them. I have already lost some of my men.

 

COUNTESS LYDIA doesn’t look too happy

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH To add on to that… KHAIRUL AZMI seems to be involved with one of them.

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

What do you mean? The Vampire?

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH nods her head

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

Why? Wasn’t he supposed to be in Europe?

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH Not when the Gregorian art piece, he has been searching for, for years, is in the Singapore Arts Museum.

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

Damn! Who is he involved with?

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH

There is a rumour in the underworld… that he is with AISHAH.

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

The Egyptian female shaman? So… she is the famous werewolf that keeps appearing in the news… Things just seems to get better and better.

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH

AISHAH has many friends, I guess, she some how got the information about the mutants… from one of them.

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

We can’t let this go on. If things get out… We may have to shut down the whole company. And our sponsors won’t be too happy about losing those billions of dollars they have been investing in us for all these years.

 

COUNTESS LYDIA lets out a sigh. OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH waits, knowing what’s she is going to say

 

COUNTESS LYDIA

I want you to set up a task force to see through this problem. I want them gone… You hear me? Gone from the face of the earth. You take care of it as soon as possible or you have to answer to the chairman. If I were you… I wouldn’t not want that.

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH shows a wicked smile as her brown eyes turns to bright glowing red

 

OPHIOPHAGUS HANNAH

I’ll take care of it, my Lady. You do not have to worry about it at all…

 

ACT 4, SCENE 1.1

 

INT. ABANDONED WARE HOUSE-NIGHT

 

Two people are fighting in the ring; a man and SALMAH. People are sitting on benches surrounding the Ring, yelling, and waving money. CHRISTINA AGUILERA’S song; DIRTY, is being played out in loud speakers

 

CHRISTINA AGUILERA

Wanna get rowdy

Gonna get a little unruly

Get it fired up in a hurry

Wanna get dirrty

It's about time that I came to start the party

Sweat dripping over my body

Dancing getting just a little naughty

Wanna get dirrty

 

MIDDLE-AGED MAN

Come on! Kill that #$@## bitch! Yeah, yeah, yeah! Yeah. Get her, STEVEN. Oh, yes! (SALMAH kicks STEVEN and throws him to the ground.) Oh $%##@#! no! Come on!

 

STEVEN gets up and rubs the blood off his mouth

 

STEVEN

What the hell are you?

 

SALMAH

Better.

 

WOMAN IN A BLUE DRESS

(To SALMAH) Yeah girl, you got that right. Go get him, tiger. Come on! Show him who’s the woman!

 

STEVEN

Oh yeah?

STEVEN speeds up his phase and tries to land some kicks, but SALMAH uses her super speed and powerful ancient strength to give him a good bashing; kicks as well as punches. He stumbles, landing against the cage in front of the MIDDLE-AGED MAN.

 

MIDDLE-AGED MAN (Shocked at what he sees): Jesus!

 

A girl in sexy red bikini enters the ring and raises SALMAH’S hand. The crowd goes wild… At the back, a MAN IN BLACK suit and glasses makes his way out

 

GIRL IN RED BIKINI: Our new Champion!

 

WOMAN IN BLUE DRESS: You got that right!

 

SCENE 1.2

 

INT.LOCKER ROOM / WARE HOUSE-CONTINUOUS

 

SALMAH is taking a cold shower… The same MAN IN BLACK suit enters the locker room. He pulls out a pair of guns and shoots out the closed bathroom.

He stops shooting a while later and walks quietly towards the bathroom, to expecting to find SALMAH’S lifeless body…

 

He finds no signs of her. Suddenly, a pair of legs wraps his neck from above. It’s SALMAH, hanging up the railing in the ceiling, totally wet and naked

 

SALMAH

I’m not that easy!

 

He chokes and struggles to get himself free from her tight lock

 

SALMAH

Can’t you bastards… ever appreciate privacy?

 

He grabs her legs tight and throws her to the floor. He points the gun at her and shoots at her as she ducks and flips from side to side. She then jumps at him and kicks his guns away from him. He snorts at her, looking up and down at her naked body

 

SALMAH

Never seen a woman before?

 

The MAN, grins

 

MAN IN BLACK

Not this pretty… Too bad, mutant bitch! Your time is up.

 

SALMAH pauses a while surprised at his knowledge about her

 

SALMAH

Bring it on!

 

They circle each other and begin to fight. Each lands several kicks and punches

 

MAN IN BLACK

How is your mutant schoolmate RAZAHLI?

 

SALMAH looks confused. He takes that opportunity to kick and throw her at the metal lockers

 

MAN IN BLACK

Oh, I forgot… You didn’t know he was a Freak too, did

you?

 

She starts to feel dizzy as blood starts to drip down her nose

 

SALMAH

What the hell are you talking about?

He laughs

 

SALMAH struggles to get up, groaning in pain and he lands several blows on her, she falls face forward. He circles her and pauses a while

 

MAN IN BLACK

Since you are going to end up like that Freak mate of

yours… I’ll be a nice guy… Ask you your final wish.

 

He laughs again and he grabs her hair, pulls her up to her knees and gives her a slap. SALMAH falls to her right. He picks up his two guns

 

MAN IN BLACK

Not that I’m going to fulfill it.

 

SALMAH watches him reloading his guns

 

SALMAH (faintly)

Who are you working for?

 

He smiles

 

MAN IN BLACK

They? Well… They are the GCC… GENOMAX-CYBER CORPS. They train us; to take all you Freaks, out… After you, there will be many more dead!

 

He points the gun at her; SALMAH surprises him by rolling back to her left and kicking the gun away. She jumps back up

 

SALMAH

Don’t be so sure!

 

She kicks him in return to the floor and then throws him at the metal lockers. He gets up quickly on his legs to face her

 

SALMAH

You are not bad for a human…

 

He snorts at her and blocks her blows

 

MAN IN BLACK

You… $#@##$% Freak!

 

He gets hold of her and starts to choke her. SALMAH flips over him, swings him under her arms… She summons for an ancient looking knife… Uses it to cut his throat to finish him off and drops him to the floor)

 

SALMAH: (She mummers softly to herself)

GENOMAX-CYBER CORPS?

 

She looks around for any unwanted spectators and she finds none. She goes to her bag, takes out a t-shirt and jeans and she puts it on before rushing out. The MAN IN BLACK lies dead on the floor… in a pool of blood

 

SCENE 2.1

 

INT.PUP-NIGHT

 

Bright lights… Loud music… People dancing. NARENDAREN is having his third glass of Vodka. Four Indian guys have been staring at him all this while

 

NAREN

Hey ZACK!

 

ZACCHEUS is too drunk to look up

 

NAREN

ZACK… I’m feeling really dizzy man (he laughs). Yo, ZACK?

 

NAREN gives up calling him and looks up at the bartender, who shakes his head. The four guys walk towards them

 

NAREN

Yo bro… Give me another glass of Vodka.

 

(English translation of Tamil)

 

First guy

(Speaks Tamil; English translation) Da… Look at that guy.

 

They both laugh. NAREN glances at them and they stop laughing

 

Second guy

(Speaks Tamil; English translation) Hey! What are you staring at?

 

Third guy

(Speaks Tamil; English translation) What happen da?

 

Forth guy

(Speaks Tamil; English translation) He’s staring at us da.

 

ZACCHEUS lifts his up from the bar top table to look around before dozing off again

 

First guy

(Speaks Tamil; English translation; to second guy) Really? (To NAREN) Why are you staring at my friend? Who do you think you are, some kind of a big shot?

 

NAREN turns away

 

NAREN

(Speaks Tamil; English translation) Don’t…just leave me alone. I don’t want to cause any trouble.

 

First guy laughs

 

First guy

(Speaks Tamil; English translation) The Sir over here doesn’t want to cause any trouble, da. (In English) Hey… Asshole! You are a nobody! What can you do? If you think you are so daring… Come on, fight with me! … Come on!

 

NAREN is gets tensed up… His powers activate

 

NAREN

(Speaks Tamil; English translation) I’m telling you again…Leave!

 

Forth guy

(Speaks Tamil; English translation) What are you going to do if we don’t leave?

 

First guy

(Speaks Tamil; English translation) Da… Just leave him. He is too much of a girl to answer your questions.

 

NAREN gets up and kicks the Second guy and he falls groaning. He head-butts the Third guy at his side, grabs and twists the arm of the Forth. The people in the bar continue dancing to the loud music as the First guy backs away

 

First guy

(In English) What the…

 

NAREN shoves the Forth guy across the bar top and walks over to the First guy

 

NAREN

You wanted me to fight with you, right?

 

First guy

No… No, I’m sorry Sir.

 

With his left hand NAREN grabs him by the throat and holds him against the wall… squeezing the esophagus

 

NAREN

Come on, man! Lets fight! …Come on!

 

NAREN puts his hand on his face and slams his head on the wall. The First guy starts screaming as luminous acid generated in NAREN’S palms, burns through his face. Few people glanced at their direction as most are still dancing…The First Guy falls unconscious

 

NAREN

(To the small spectators) What are you all gawking at?

 

They look away and continue their dance. He goes over to the bar top… The bartender, who had just witnessed the scene, backs away in fear. NAREN tries to wake ZACCHEUS up

 

NAREN

ZACK? Man… Get up! We’ve to get to college before SIR TAN finds out.

 

ZACCHEUS grunts. NAREN lets out a sigh and forces him up on his feet… Helps him to walk. On the way out he notices LETCHUMI and VERA, getting it going with their sexy dance moves. He smiles at them and goes out of the bar with ZACCHEUS

SCENE 2.2

 

INT. MILLENNIA BOARDING SCHOOL,

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES-NIGHT

 

It’s the second day of full moon. School keeper MARY is mopping the school hall… She suddenly hears some strange voices coming through the main office in the end of the hallway. She stops her work and goes to investigate…

                                                 

                                                 CUT TO:

 

SCENE 2.3

 

INT. SCHOOL’S ANCIENT LIBRARY-NIGHT

 

ASHIKIN and JOLEEN LEE are sitting in the old library and discussing about Shakespeare

 

ASHIKIN

What do you think about the characters Iago from Othello and John Don from Much Ado?

 

JOLEEN

What do you think about us… going home next week?

 

ASHIKIN

The usual… What is there to think? I’m just going home! Answer my questions JOLEEN. What do you think about them both?

 

JOLEEN

They are both cowards.

 

ASHIKIN

Maybe… But that does not mean Iago is not a great villain.

 

JOLEEN

Why are we talking about Shakespeare at this hour? (She looks around) In this ancient library?

 

ASHIKIN

Cause, we have a test tomorrow, there is no one here and that means we can discuss Shakespeare without any distractions!

 

JOLEEN

Whatever!

 

ASHIKIN

Come on, JOLEEN! This is our last test before the final exams… Which, by the way is right after the holidays.

 

JOLEEN

Ok… Ok. Well, I don’t think Iago is a great villain because… The only character Iago kills is that pathetic Roderigo and… his wife, Emilia! That doesn’t make him fantastic. What I believe is… In order to be a great villain…

 

They suddenly hear a faint sound coming from the main building. They both look at each other in fear

 

JOLEEN

That sounds like someone is screaming.

 

ASHIKIN

I think so too.

 

They listen closely and they hear nothing

 

ASHIKIN

I don’t hear anything.

 

JOLEEN

Me either. Should we go and check it out?

 

ASIKIN

Do you really want to do that? I mean… What if …

 

JOLEEN

If it’s the werewolf?

 

ASIKIN nods her head… Suddenly they hear screaming again! They both get up and start running towards the direction of the scream

 

                                                 CUT TO:

 

INT. SCHOOL MAIN OFFICE-NIGHT

 

School keeper MARY (In fear and panic)

Oh my god! Oh… Oh, mother of Christ!

 

Light bulbs were shattered in their sockets; Tables turned upside down; Furniture, books, chairs and other utensils are floating in mid-air; Remaining chairs and tables scoot across the floor and dance as though they are alive

 

School keeper MARY

It’s the devil’s work! Oh, Mary, Mother of god… Protect us from this great evil!

 

As if her prayers worked, the floating objects drop to the floor and all unnatural movement stops. School keeper MARY is panting for air as minor asthma attacks.

Suddenly, a fiery light appears and Stella backs away to the door in horror.

Out of the fiery light, a striking stranger emerges dressed in shiny black leather, it’s HASBULLA covered with sweat and seems exhausted… The smell of sulphur is pungent. The school keeper gasps and blacks out

 

HASBULLA

(Shouts, hitting the ground with clenched fists) Damn you! God damn you!

 

He gets up and notices School keeper MARY… on the floor… He glances around the mess he has made

 

HASBULLA

Shit!

 

HASBULLA walks over to School keeper MARY, bends down to check for her pulse… It is beating weakly. Placing his body against hers, his lips close to her ears… His hypnotic voice seeps through her…

 

HASBULLA

You’re still alive.

 

He hears noise coming from the hallway… It’s ASHIKIN and JOLEEN. He looks around for a hiding place and sees a turned table… He runs towards it and hides from their view.

 

The door opens, ASHIKIN pops her head in expecting to see a werewolf, and instead she finds the terrible state of the room and School keeper MARY, unconscious on the floor

 

ASHIKIN

Oh my god! What the hell happened here? MARY?

 

JOLEEN

It looks like… A tornado has just passed by!

 

They bend over school keeper MARY and try to wake her up

 

JOLEEN

It’s no use… You wait here and I’ll go and call for help.

 

ASHIKIN

I’m not staying here alone.

 

JOLEEN

Well, we can’t leave her alone can we?

 

They look around again at the destroyed office

 

JOLEEN

Fine. Lets go… Hurry!

 

They run out of the office. HASBULLA lets a sigh of relief and comes out from his hiding place. He goes to school keeper MARY)

 

HASBULLA

I’m sorry.

 

He gets out of the room… School keeper MARY just lies there with her mouth open, looking petrified

 

SCENE 3

 

INT.PUP-NIGHT
 
Back in the bar, THANALETCHUMI sits by the bar top table with a glass of bailey’s in front of her and listening to the loud music

 

Bartender

Hey, beautiful! That guy over there… The name is CHARLIE.

 

LETCHUMI looks over at the tall white guy… Eyeing her. She turns back to the bartender

 

Bartender

He asked me to give you another glass of bailey’s…

 

LETCHUMI

Tell him, I’m not interested.

 

The bartender walks over to CHARLIE. A minute later, CHARLIE comes and sits near LETCHUMI. She feels irritated by his behaviour

 

CHARLIE: Hi… I’m CHARLIE.

 

LETCHUMI looks at him like he is some kind of an idiot

 

LETCHUMI

I know.

 

CHARLIE

Ok… Would you like to dance then?

 

LETCHUMI

No, I’m waiting for my friend actually.

 

CHARLIE

Oh, no problem, you can wait for her, with me…

 

LETCHUMI

Didn’t you get the message already? I’m not interested!

 

CHARLIE

Oh, come on! Don’t be such a spoiled spot, baby.

 

This time… He really pissed her off. She takes a quick glance around her, before using her Cryokinesis ability to emit a cold energy from her body to freeze CHARLIE’s manhood.

 

CHARLIE

Woa!

 

He started shouting, crying and screaming… Falling out of his seat to the floor… clutching his groin in excruciating pain. LETCHUMI takes a gulp of the bailey’s left in her glass… Pays the bartender and leaves)

 

ACT 5, SCENE 1.1

 

INT. MILLENNIA BOARDING SCHOOL / BOY’S DORMITORY-DAY

 

Two days later in the boy’s dormitory… JOSEPH SOO is sitting on a large sofa, wearing only his shorts and watching CHERYL FOX reading the prime time news on Channel News Asia.

DAMIEN walks in carrying a cup of coffee; wearing his maroon coloured school pants and sits beside JOSEPH

 

CHERYL FOX

The Police are investigating a astonishing and gruesome attack on a 25 year old, American foreigner in club Cheers.

 

PRASHANT jumps in between JOSEPH and DAMIEN

 

CHERYL FOX

The victim’s sexual organ was spontaneously frozen from the inside out.

 

The guys are shocked at what they are hearing. THINKING: It can’t be real. Are there someone else like them out there?

 

JOSEPH AND DAMIEN

Ouch!

 

PRASHANT

What?

 

He laughs out loud and turns to look at his buddies who have just entered the hall 

 

PRASHANT

Hey! Someone froze a guy’s dick, da!

 

FADHLI

What the…

 

RUDRA

Are you sure?

 

PRASHANT

Hey, I’m serious… It’s on the news. Watch!

 

CHERYL FOX

The CID is baffled by this paranormal incident and has declined to give statement regarding the event. This is however is a second attack taken place in the club following an attack on four Indian young men, which took place on the very same day.

 

NARENDAREN and ZACCHEUS look at each other with a sudden know-how… Familiarity

 

CHERYL FOX

It was informed earlier to CNA network by an eyewitness yesterday and our correspondent HASSINA KOYAKUTTI with the reports... HASSINA?

 

HASSINA

You are looking at the club, where both the gruesome attacks took place. One of the eyewitnesses, MR LEE TECK BOON is here with me… MR LEE, what did you see exactly?

 

Mr LEE

Yeah… I saw someone… Yes, a guy about my height… I think he is a Malay guy? No… No, it’s a Chinese fellow. Yes! A Chinese! I was dancing and… And he just jumped on this poor guy… What’s his name? SATISH?

Well, he kind of ran away from him and this guy… He looked like this huge giant, he well knocked him over and, and he burned his face… I don’t know how, but he kind of like put his hand over his face like this…

 

MR LEE puts his left hand on his own face

 

MR LEE

And it just burned him… Like you know? Just burned him!

 

All the guys in the dormitory start to feel… really uncomfortable. ZACCHEUS’S powers activate… He senses their fears. He couldn’t believe what he sees in his mind…)

 

In ZACCHEUS’S mind… He sees gunfires… and SAMUEL KWONG who turns and shoots a powerful optical blast of red light at a man dressed in black, who flies off and smashes across the wall.

 

ZACCHEUS looks over at PRASHANT

 

In ZACCHEUS’S mind… He sees PRASHANT driving his red BMW convertible in high speed… A black sedan is approaching him from behind… Someone in the sedan is shooting at him at point-blank range; their cars smash and pound each other.

 

PRASHANT holds the stirring wheel by the left hand… picks up a paper and crushes it via his right hand… The paper turns hot, burning red, in his palms. He throws it out at the sedan… Explosion! The sedan flies up, through the air and flips over. PRASHANT speeds off in his red convertible;

ZACCHEUS turns to JOSEPH

In ZACCHEUS’S mind… He sees JOSEPH knocking over LADY ALBRIGHT’s glass statue of Greek goddess Aphrodite… It shatters to several pieces. He then holds his hands over the debris… The Parts starts to spin and reassemble themselves… Back into the beautiful glass statue of the Goddess;

(FADHLI clears his throat… ZACCHEUS’S attention shifts to FADHLI’S fears)

 

In ZACCHEUS’S mind… He sees FADHLI’S image with his retractable Metallic claws… one in each hand… slashing;

 

The powerful image of FADHLI astonishes ZACCHEUS… He shifts himself away from him and he watches DAMIEN to react…

 

HASSINA

Thank you, MR LEE and back to you CHERYL.

 

CHERYL FOX

Thank you HASSINA. That’s HASSINA KOYAKUTTI with the reports. The police say one of victims was severely disfigured with acid burns on his face. Which is believed to be the work of a young man with an incredible ability to generate acid in his palms.

 

DAMIEN’S heart skips a beat… ZACCHEUS gets what he wanted to see

 

In ZACCHEUS’S mind… DAMIEN moves in an inhuman speed towards a police officer… The officer is dead before he begins to fall.

He seizes a wrist, misdirecting a gun, as startled second officer fires… ZACCHEUS’S images change. He sees NAREN, now… at the club.

 

ZACCHEUS glances at NAREN who doesn’t seem to look too good as he continues to watch the news

 

In ZACCHEUS’S mind… NAREN’S hands on an Indian guy’s face… Smoke forms… The guy screams in pain as NAREN continues to burn his face

 

ZACCHEUS is totally lost for words. He silently looks around… at all of them. They are just like him. Yet, no one knows about the other one’s abilities.

They have been playing a game of cat and mouse all these while… without realising that they are all in the same boat… All-powerful and afraid to expose it

 

CHERYL FOX

The Singapore police force is examining evidences and eyewitness statements for both cases and has not ruled out the idea of a same perpetrator for both the incidents.

 

DAMIEN

(To NAREN) You were there yesterday in that same club… Right? Did you see anything?

 

NAREN shakes his head, looking down. ZACCHEUS is silent… In deep thoughts

 

CHERYL FOX

Senior Prime Minister MR GOH arrived in London…

 

DAMIEN Switches off the TV

 

FADHLI (very uncomfortable at the situation)

Well, what about you, ZACK? You were there too, right? Did you see anything?

 

ZZACHEUS debates within himself, whether or not to tell them about his and all of their powers… to let them know that they are not a lone as they think…

 

NAREN

He was too drunk then I was.

 

NAREN smirks looking at ZACCHEUS… who turns to him… Feeling irritated and decides against the idea of letting the truth out… For now

 

ZACCHEUS

(To NAREN) Shut up man! (To the rest of the guys) No… I don’t remember seeing anyone. (He suddenly feels a little naughty) Wait hold on! I remember…

 

NAREN starts to perspire… ZACCHEUS realises that and smiles

 

ZACCHEUS

I did see… (NAREN shifts in his seat…) The new girl… What’s her name?

 

NAREN lets out a soft sigh of relief…

 

PRASHANT

Who? LETCHUMI?

 

ZACCHEUS

Yes! That’s the girl… She was with someone… VERA

 

SAMUEL

What was she doing with LETCHUMI? I thought they don’t like each other.

 

ZACCHEUS

Really? How’d you know that?

 

SAMUEL Shrugs

 

SAMUEL

Just an instinctive guess, man! All pretty girls tend to hate each other.

 

The guys nod their heads in agreement

 

ZACCHEUS

Well, they were there… dancing. If that’s any help.

 

NAREN

He’s right. I remember that too.

 

FADHLI

I know VERA well. She is just too laid back for these kinds of thing… freezing dick! Come on guys! Is that for real? (He laughs) You’ll believe all that shit we just heard? I’m sure it’s not her.

 

JOSEPH tries to clam himself down and turns around to face them in interest

 

JOSEPH

So, Are you saying it has to be LETCHUMI… If it’s real, just for the sack of saying?

 

FADHLI

I didn’t mean its her… It’s just that… I don’t know. There is something about this LETCHUMI…

 

PRASHANT

Guys… come on. You telling me the new girl, LETCHUMI… froze this American’s dick… inside out?

 

FADHLI

Like I said earlier, I didn’t mean that.

 

He laughs, but FADHLI looks really suspicious and ZACCHEUS wanders why.

 

FADHLI

Something is not right about her…

 

ZACCHEUS feels that nothing seem to be right at all

 

                                                 CUT TO:

 

EXT.STREET-NIGHT

 

DHANA LATCHMI (DINO) walks out of the Queenstown National Library, with her books. She looks around and there is no one at sight except few Bangladeshi workers. They stop what they are doing and stare at her. She walks quickly… they follow.

 

WORKER 1

(Speaks Hindi; English Subtitled) Why are you walking away, my dear?

 

WORKER 2 looks worried… He anxiously looks around for spectators.

 

WORKER 2

(Speaks Hindi; English Subtitled) Why are we following her, ANIL?

                                                 

                                                  ANGLE ON:

 

LS

DHANA starts running. They chase after her in the alley.

 

MS

WORKER 3 (looks drunk)

(Speaks English) Stop running. There is no one here. No one is going to help you.

 

ANIL

(Speaks Hindi; English Subtitled) I’ m going to home tomorrow. I just want to have some fun before that. Ok. Relax… no one is going to find out.

 

WORKER 4

(Speaks Hindi; English Subtitled) Yeah. Besides… You are leaving next week.  

 

The WORKERS caught up with DHANA. Two of them grabbed her from behind. She yells… a bit of struggle and she kicks out the other two in the front, who goes flying. She pulls the remaining two guys to the front, knocks one down and sends the other slamming against the wall.

 

She turns around and sees three lorries full of more angry Bangladeshi WORKERS coming her way. DHANA starts running again. The lorries come at her in high speed. She finds herself in dead end… Terror grips hold of her.

 

C/U Sweat drips down her forehead… We could hear her heart beating faster by minute.

 

We see bright headlights of the lorries, DHANA opens her mouth wide to scream and it seems like normal, at first.

We are directed towards one Bangladeshi driver… His eyes go wider in fear.

 

                                                  ANGLE ON:

 

DHANA lets out sound,

A Meta human sonic cry; Producing… expending ring-like shock waves… it wipes out the three lorries and everything else in its path; Pieces of metal flying back in all directions; lorries explode, sending the fuel blasting silently into the empty street. DHANA stands against the wall, dumb struck with a mix of panic and fascination.

 

A crashing sound… She jerks her head to the left and sees old Chinese women in her nineties, sitting hunched by the dustbin. She is shaking and looks terrified as she picks up the fallen tin cans. She freezes and looks up at DHANA… who picks up her books and runs off.  

 
SCENE 1.2 

 

INT. MILLENNIA BOARDING SCHOOL,

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES-DAY

 

ZACCHEUS walks down the hallway beside DAMIEN.

 

DAMIEN

Have you completed the Chemistry Project?

 

LUCIFER

It’s on the process of completion, my friend.

 

DAMIEN

Are you nuts? You have to hand it in by lunch break today!

 

ZACCHEUS

Relax bro… we’ll complete it.

 

DAMIEN

There’s no we’ll, ZACK. I have already done my part. It’s your turn now.

 

ASLIN enters.

 

ASLIN

Hey guys.

 

ZACCHEUS nods.

 

DAMIEN

Hey beautiful. Heading to the Lit class?

 

ASLIN

Yeah. Got test today on Shakespeare. Wish me luck.

 

She runs off.

 

ZACCHEUS and DAMIEN

Good luck!

 

ZACCHEUS runs after her, wandering to let her know about their share of special inhuman powers but decides against it. It wasn’t the right time for such revelations and she is too busy heading for her important mid-term test.

 

ZACCHEUS

Hey, ASLIN! Hold up.

 

ASLIN stops and turns around.

 

He picks up his lucky necklace he made out of Heineken bottle caps and slides it into her back bag.

 

ASLIN

What’s that?

 

ZACCHEUS

Just something I made back at home in Munich… Take it for luck.

 

She smiles at him.

 

ASLIN

Well, thank you ZACK. I never expected… You are really sweet.

 

ZACCHEUS looks embarrassed.

 

ZACCHEUS

Yeah, yeah. Just don’t forget to return it back. Drop it in my locker after your test.

 

He turns around and runs back to DAMIEN.

 

ZACCHEUS

Good luck for your test.

 

ASLIN watches him run off, smiles and turns.

INT. SCHOOL / CLASSROOM-CONTINOUS

 

ASLIN enters the classroom… her powers activate and she receives various mixed feelings about the test. JURANA and NICK LAI were doing their last minute read ups. ASLIN realises that she is not alone, as LETCHUMI does not feel too good about the test too. At the moment of desperation, ASHIKIN and JOLEEN LEE’S confidence gives her comfort.

She pulls out her pencil case, which comes along with ZACCHEUS’S lucky necklace. She smiles as she picks it up and suddenly her Clairvoyance powers activate.

 

She gets images of: ZACCHEUS sitting alone in the park, near the school pond; three black sedan pulls up near the park and several MEN IN BLACK get out with guns; ZACCHEUS runs in what seem like some kind of deep forest; the MEN IN BLACK shoot at him; ZACCHEUS gets hit by bullets as he falls to the ground.

 

ASLIN breaks away from her premonitions with a loud inhale. Heads turn at her direction. MDM SHAKIRA looks at her pointedly.

 

MDM SHAKIRA

Ssh!

 

ASLIN looks at others and realises the test has started.

 

INT.SCHOOL / CAFERTARIA-CONTINOUS

 

MISS CARRINA JOAN LEE is marking geography test papers. Her eyes drift over to the school poles where few days ago the gruesome sight of RAZAHLI was discovered. She curses herself and is back with her marking.

 

IN MISS LEE’S MIND… She is suddenly walking down the hallway to the teacher’s dormitory in the dark. She hears a low howl and she quickens her phase. She stumbles upon something and she falls to the ground… she searches for the books and papers with her hands and pick it up quickly.

 

MISS LEE feels something creeping on her… She hears the howls again… She looks up and sees a horrendous looking creature with blood dripping down its sharp teeth, growling at her. She screams but its too late… the night creature jumps at her.

 

IN REALITY… MISS LEE screams and falls to the ground crying and hides under the table. Students look at her as if she has gone mad. Some go over to help her not knowing what to think. ZACCHEUS walks away.

 

INT.SCHOOL HALLWAY-DAWN

 

ASLIN sees ZACCHEUS by his locker and he notices her.

 

ZACCHEUS

How was your test?

 

ASLIN

It was all right… here’s your charm necklace.

 

ZACCHEUS

Thanks.

 

ASLIN

For what?

 

ZACCHEUS

For bringing that back safely.

 

ASLIN playfully shoves him. They laugh.

 

ZACCHEUS

My lessons are over, I’m heading to the dormitory.

 

ASLIN

Good for you. I have lessons until 8.

 

ZACCHEUS

Damn.

 

ASLIN

I know.

 

ASLIN couldn’t hold back anymore. Who are those MEN dressed in all black? Why are they after him? How to explain it to him without him suspecting her… Can she trust ZACCHEUS with her powers?

 

ASLIN

ZACK… Are you thinking of going over to the school pond later?

 

He stopped what he was doing and looked up at her.

 

ZACCHEUS

The school pond? (Something happened inside of him, within seconds he wasn’t himself anymore. The other personality took over) Yeah. May be… do you wanna come along with me? I mean if you want to hang out or something?

 

ASLIN gives him a blank look.

 

ZACCHEUS

Ok… Shouldn’t have asked that question.

 

He clears his throat and ASLIN looks embarrassed as well for his misinterpretation of her question.

 

ASLIN

ZACK… its not that… its

 

ZACCHEUS

What? (His eyes penetrating into hers… it suddenly looked eerie) Then, you want to go out with me?

 

ASLIN

No! (She felt uneasy… as if an unhealthy wipe had just hit her)

 

ZACCHEUS

Ok, Jesus! You don’t have to be so cruel.

 

ASLIN

God, listen to your self. Look, I came here to… um, tell you about something. (ZACCHEUS tries to speak) no, listen to me. I… I had a dream. Yes! A dream about you.

 

ZACCHEUS is taken back with that revelation.

 

ZACCHEUS

Wait… hold on. You are actually having dreams about me? I know you like me but I never knew you have such strong feelings for me.

 

The only thing ASLIN felt at that moment is to smash his head on the lockers over and over till he gets his sense back.

 

ZACCHEUS

This is crazy!

 

ASLIN

Shut up, ZACCHEUS! And listen to me… I am serious.

 

ZACCHEUS’S buddies (FADHLI, DAMIEN, PRASHANT, SAMUEL, NAREN and JOSEPH) enter the hallway.

 

PRASHANT

Dude… Listen to her. She is dead serious.

 

JOSEPH

What’s up man? What’s all the commotions about?

 

SAMUEL gave a high five to ZACCHEUS, followed by NAREN, slapping ZACCHEUS’S shoulder

 

ZACCHEUS

(It felt good to make people go crazy) She was just telling me how much I meant to her.

 

ALL THE GUYS

Oooh!

 

FADHLI

So, someone finally has a crush on you. This is going to be interesting.

 

ASLIN

(To all the guys) No, I don’t have any crush, (to ZACCHEUS) feelings or (to all of them) anything for him! Ok?

 

PRASHANT

I am sorry dude.

 

She gets very pissed off with ZACCHEUS and grabs his collar slamming him against the locker in irritation, her face close to his.

 

PRASHANT

Ok. Now I am confused.

 

ASLIN

You are going to get hurt and die a slow and painful death.

 

NAREN

She really does like him…

 

ZACCHEUS slowly puts his hands on her back.

 

ZACCHEUS

Really? I’m gonna get hurt? When? Where? Your place or mine?

 

ASLIN

Huh?

 

He starts caressing her back. She turns her head to the direction of his caressing hands. The guys giggle.

 

ZACCHEUS

I can bring the handcuffs…

 

ASLIN’S power activates and she feels his sexual desires towards her. She jerks away from him in total repulsion.

 

ASLIN

You disgusting, godless-son of a pig!

 

ZACCHEUS’S eyes become more gentle… his usual self… this time Surprised and hurt.

 

ZACCHEUS

What? ASLIN? How is your test? (He looks around at others) What’s going on?

 

ASLIN still angry

 

ASLIN

What? What the hell is wrong with you?

 

SAMUEL

Yeah, man. What’s up with you?

 

ZACCHEUS shakes his head and holds his forehead with his right hand.

 

ASLIN

I can’t believe this! I wanted to help you, warn you… I was actually worried that you are going to get shot at by some guys dressed in black… and you thought…

 

FADHLI cuts in.

 

FADHLI

(Turns to her) Men dressed in black?

 

SAMUEL and PRASHANT glanced at each other. The rest are stunned.

 

DAMIEN

(Looks suspiciously at ZACCHEUS) Why do the MEN IN BLACK want to kill you?

 

JOSEPH

Who’s the MEN IN BLACK?

 

FADHLI overcomes by sudden anger grip hold of ASLIN’s neck, lifting her up the floor. The rest take a step back in amaze at his overwhelming power.  

 

FADHLI

How do you know about the MEN IN BLACK?

 

She struggles to get herself free… she chokes. DAMIEN feels his head spinning, PRASHANT and SAMUEL are almost sick in their stomachs. JOSEPH is even more confused.

 

FADHLI

Tell me! Tell me! Are you working for them?

 

ZACCHEUS

Leave her alone. Put her down FADHLI.

 

All turn to ZACCHEUS in surprise at his bravery except FADHLI who is still holding on to ASLIN who is almost turning white.

 

FADHLI

Why?

 

ZACCHEUS

Because… because she just like you and me… (He turns to the rest of the guys) she is like all of us here…

 

He walks over to him and gently touches his shoulder and FADHLI releases ASLIN who falls to the floor, coughing. FADHLI turns to look at ZACCHEUS.

 

JOSEPH

(Afraid) Like all of us? What do you mean?

 

ZACCHEUS’S powers activate.

IN ZACCHEUS’S MIND… we see JOSEPH hooked on lots of wires and he is lying on some kind of a glass box. There some medical personnel in white clothing working on experiments on him.

 

ZACCHEUS

(To JOSEPH) Relax man. No one is going to hurt you in any way. No one is gonna hook you up with wires and all… if you know what I mean.

 

JOSEPH

(Shocked, comes forward threateningly) how’d the hell did you know about that?

 

ZACCHEUS backs away and takes a deep breath before he begins his explanation.

 

ZACCHEUS

Before I come to say anything… I only came to know about these…

 

DAMIEN

About what man? Get to the point.

 

ASLIN gets up with NAREN’S help and who stays close by him… far away from FADHLI as possible.

 

ZACCHEUS

(Irritated with FADHLI’S question) I’m getting to that if guys let me. (Takes a another deep breath) I know about your special powers. (He looks at ASLIN) I came to know about your power first… you can feel other’s feeling’s right?

 

ASLIN shocked and nods her head.

 

ZACCHEUS

(At FADHLI) you on the other hand are powerful as we all saw and you… (He wipes his knuckles) you have some sort of steely knives, which shoot out, from your knuckles at will… right? (FADHLI looks at him menacingly and LUCIFER backs away) Hey! You asked me!

 

FADHLI

How’d do you know about all that?

 

ZACCHEUS

That’s obvious isn’t it? Well come on guys… I have abilities of my own.

 

SAMUEL

What kind?

 

ZACCHEUS

I feel fear… well; other people’s fear is more like it. And I’m also able to amplify that fear and make it realistic as possible. Whenever you guys felt afraid, I saw what you feared. That is how I knew.

 

All look at each other, unable to believe what they are hearing.

 

ZACCHEUS

It is true. (He turns to DAMIEN) I know that you are able run or move faster then anyone… (He turns to PRASHANT) you produce some kind of extreme radioactive heat energy in your palms.

 

All look at PRASHANT in shock except SAMUEL who knows about his brother’s powers.

 

ZACCHEUS

JOSEPH… you have some form of magnetic abilities my bro… you can fix almost anything with little heat (JOSEPH nods his head) and with lots of force. NAREN… My man! YOU are the one who burned that guy’s face in the pub few days ago.

 

ALL except ZACCHEUS and NAREN

(Shocked) What?

 

SAMUEL

How?

 

ZACCHEUS

My man here is able to produce some deadly acid from the pores of his palms.

 

All nod their heads

Cool.

 

ASLIN

(To SAMUEL) what about you? Anything special?

 

PRASHANT and SAMUEL look at each other and ZACCHEUS smiles knowingly. Then SAMUEL turns to the left and stares at SAY NO TO DRUGS wallpaper… he lets out a powerful red laser light from his eyes, which clearly formed a huge hole and enabled all to see through to the cafeteria.

 

ASLIN

Whoa!

 

It took some time for them to break away from the spell.

 

ASLIN

How long did you knew about us again?

 

ZACCHEUS

Well… about two weeks, I guess.

 

DAMIEN

Two weeks? You knew about all of us for two weeks and you never said anything to any of us?

 

PRASHANT

Yeah, man! What were you thinking? Were you trying to take advantage of that knowledge?

 

They surround him.

 

ZACCHEUS

Come on guys… you don’t expect me to jump up and down with excitement and inform all of you right? (He laughs nervously) I mean… this is a sensitive issue here, um… guys?

 

JOSEPH

(TO all except ZACCHEUS) He had definitely taken some kind of advantage on us… tell me ZACK, did you ever used your powers on us? You did several times didn’t you?

 

ZACCHEUS

Come on man… I wouldn’t do that to you guys.

 

Before they have their revenge, ASLIN stops them.

 

ASLIN

Don’t. He’s not worth it. (She comes face to face with ZACCHEUS) I for one really did misunderstood you, ZACK. God… I have never met a selfish moron like you in my entire life! (To the rest) lets get out of here guys before I kill him myself. 

 

DAMIEN pushes him to the lockers as he walks away with the rest… many shaking their head in disappointment. ZACCHEUS stares at them helplessly.

 

INT. MILLENNIA BOARDING SCHOOL-CONTINUES

 

It’s getting dark… students fill the hallway, ready to pack their stuff and head on to their boarding rooms. Minutes pass and crowd disappears… the last student closes the door behind him, leaves and the wind opens the door back… Now the long and large hallway looks empty and silent except for some dried leaves dancing in mid air.

                                           CUT TO:

 

EXT.SCHOOL POND-DAWN

 

ZACCHEUS is sitting by the pond, not knowing exactly why he is there. HE looks tired and upset, thinking of what has happened hours ago with his friends.

Two black sedans pull up behind him and some MEN IN BLACK get out… snap! The three of them fit new clips into their pistols. They walk side by side towards ZACCHEUS in slow steady motion. ZACCHEUS reacts and turns around only to see them open fire… boom! Boom! Boom! LUCIFER spins away.

                                          CUT TO:

 

EXT.THICK FOREST OF BUKIT BATOK-CONTINUES

 

ZACCHEUS is running for his life inside a thick dark forest, sensing the three MEN IN BLACK behind him. He turns around… he is lost… ZACCHEUS gaze trying to penetrate into the darkness, but fails. Boom! Boom! Boom! The MEN IN BLACK opens fire from the gloom. Bullets just miss him as he ducks and yanks himself behind a tree. He is terrified… more blind-shots passes him and then silence. ZACCHEUS hears them… They are right behind him, behind the tree.

 

MEN IN BLACK 1

(Reloads) Come out… come out, where ever you are. Don’t be scared. We aren’t gonna hurt you.

 

MAN IN BLACK 2

(Reloads) What are you talking about man? Of course, we are going to hurt him.

 

ZACCHEUS feels sick in his stomach as MEN IN BLACK 3 laughs wickedly.

 

MAN IN BLACK 2

There is nowhere to run boy. No one is going to help you… (Trying to draw ZACCHEUS out) you are all alone now. Nobody cares! Nobody cares for you freaks!

 

A sound behind a tree and MEN IN BLACK 3 realises where ZACCHEUS is hiding. He signals to his partners and they step forward. MEN IN BLACK 2 brushes off a small spider from his shoulder…

Suddenly,

 

C/U ZACCHEUS smiles, his sultry grey eyes sparkling with delight as his powers activates.

 

IN MEN IN BLACK 2’S MIND… A black tarantula crawls in the front of his shoulders.

 

MAN IN BLACK 2

(He whacks it away) Uh!

Another one appears and he wriggles his hands and shoulder… he turns his palms up and sees lots spiders crawling out of his sleeve… he screams.

 

IN REALITY… His partners watch him in shock and confusion as MEN IN BLACK 2 is screaming on top of his lungs, rolling on the floor and scratching his eyes out.

 

MAN IN BLACK 1

(To MEN IN BLACK 3) What’s happening? (To MAN IN BLACK 2) Man, You all right?

 

MAN IN BLACK 3

What the… It’s him! That freak is doing something to him. (He fires at the direction of ZACCHEUS).

 

IN MEN IN BLACK 2’S MIND…

 

He is covered with spiders… there are everywhere. Then he sees one large ugly spider crawling towards him, its so huge… he could see its ugly red eyes glaring at him. He searches for his pistol… he finds it and points it at the spider…

 

IN REALITY… he is pointing the weapon at his partner MEN IN BLACK 3 as he fires, Boom! Boom! Boom! MEN IN BLACK 3 dies. He then points the gun at MEN IN BLACK 1; Who tries to save his own self and ends up shooting MEN IN BLACK 3 and kills him.

 

MAN IN BLACK 1

Where are you? (Spins around with his gun trying to catch a glimpse of ZACCHEUS) Come on out, you freak! Where are you?

 

At that very moment the rest of the MEN IN BLACK gang arrive with guns pointing

 

EXT. MILLENNIA BOARDING SCHOOL-DAY

 

It’s Saturday morning… Raining heavily… Students are helping out the school keepers to load their bags under the luggage compartment of the air-corned buses. The students hug each other and say their holiday wishes.

 

LADY CRYSTAL ALBRIGHT is looking at them through her huge glass window. Some students wave at her before getting on to the buses and she waves back

 

NURAZURA

Oh… I’m going to miss you guys so much!

 

NOORLIANA

Me too! Hey, we must keep in touch throughout the holidays. Ok?

 

They nod their heads in agreement

 

NURHAFIZAHTUNNISA

You’re (To AZURA) going to your dad’s home in Germany?

 

AZURA

Yes, I am. I guess… My mum is not too happy about it. But it has been a long time since we both last seen each other… And I miss him so much. What about you FIZAH? Heading back home to Ghana to spend your holiday?

 

FIZAH nods her head

 

FIZAH

It’s home sweet home for me. Hey, did you guys heard about… what had happened to the main office?

 

We are directed to LADY ALBRIGHT’s room above the teacher’s dormitory

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

I desperately need a psychiatrist!

 

She is lightly banging her head on her table

 

Sir TAN

Why are you saying such things, my Lady?

 

She looks up at him as if he has gone mad

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

Why?

 

She laughs sarcastically

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

Are you serious SIR TAN? You can actually ask me… Why? Well… Let me tell you why.

 

She pauses a while as Sir tan looks uncomfortable

 

Lady Albright

One of my Student was torn apart and his bloody lifeless body was hanging on… My pole!

The police have closed the damn case… Saying…. I don’t know what the hell they are saying; the main office looks like a war zone…

I have no idea of what kind of explanation I’m going to give to the Ministry of Education, neither the Parent’s committee nor the School Board. One of my teachers is admitted to the Wood Bridge mental hospital. And yes! There is a damn wolf! Outside my window on every damn full moon! (She laughs softly) Why the hell am I, telling you about this? Even my own French maid doesn’t believe me…

 

It is SIR TAN’s turn to look at her… as if she has gone mad.

 

LADY ALBRIGHT

(Stares right at him) So tell me, SIR TAN. Do you think I need to see a psychiatrist at this point? Because if these things go on… I’ll soon have to join MISS LEE in Wood Bridge!
