The Tunnel Trap

April 30, 2012 § 7 Comments

FADE IN: EXT. PARK – DAY

There are only a small number of people walking. Only 2-3 people jogging. There are birds and pigeons flying, some are on the floor, and some near the pond. Trees are so high that it provides a great deal of shades and allowing little sunlight through. A cement pathway directs where people should be walking.

A TALL MAN in his mid 30’s with thick glasses is sitting on a bench reading the newspaper. A couple walks pass him.

A WOMAN in her early 20’s with blonde hair dressed in a pink sports bra and black shorts is listening to her iPhone. She walks by the TALL MAN. He stares at her.

After the WOMAN is about 15 feet away from the tall man, he gets up, leaves the newspaper on the bench, and follows her. The woman turns left to enter the inner part of the park. The man waits in the corner and spies on the girl.

EXT. INNER PART OF THE PARK – DAY

The pathway is very narrow filled with tall bushes. The birds and pigeons and the wind hitting the trees and bushes are the only sound the can be heard.

The TALL MAN makes a left and follows the WOMAN.

The WOMAN ties her right shoe laces. The TALL MAN walks fast.

A couple enters from the opposite direction from the TALL MAN and WOMAN are walking. The TALL MAN turns around and takes his cell phone out from his right pocket.

TALL MAN

Hey, George! What’s happening…

The couple passes the TALL MAN. The WOMAN continues to walk.

TALL MAN (CONT’D)

Well I am thinking about selling my place…

TALL MAN’S POV

He sees the WOMAN make a right-turn.

BACK TO SCENE

He puts his cell phone in his right pocket and continues to follow her.

EXT. TUNNEL IN THE PARK – DAY

The distance of the tunnel is about 20 feet. There are lights in the tunnel but the lights are not on. The walls are filled with graffiti. The area midway in the tunnel is dark making it really difficult to see anything except the light before and after the tunnel.

The WOMAN enters the tunnel. The TALL MAN walks faster.

TALL MAN’S POV

He sees the WOMAN exits the tunnel. He enters the tunnel and walks even faster.

The WOMAN makes a sudden right turn.

BACK TO SCENE

The TALL MAN starts to run.

Phone rings.

The man is midway in the tunnel and stops running.

WOMAN (O.S.)

Hello?…Hey, June…Yeah, I’ll be there like in twenty minutes. I am walking in the park right now.

The man takes his knife out from his right pocket. He walks slowly toward the WOMAN.

WOMAN (O.S.) (CONT’D)

…I’ll see you later okay?…Love you too!

The man quickly walks and makes a right-turn.

TALL MAN’S POV

Two police officers point their guns toward him. The WOMAN is behind two police officers.

THE TWO POLICE OFFICERS

(loud)

Drop your weapon! Put your hands up where I can see them. Now!

BACK TO SCENE

The TALL MAN drops the knife. He turns around and runs. A police officer tackles him down on the floor and handcuffs him. The woman walks and squads next to the TALL MAN.

WOMAN

(smiles)

You have the right remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to talk to a lawyer and have him…

FADE OUT.

The movie theater is filled with audiences. The only lights visible are the screen and the lights on the stairway.

Dylan and Sara are sitting somewhere in the center section in the middle row. Dylan is asleep and Sara notices. Sara continues to watch the movie.

DREAM – ROLLER COASTER RIDE DURING THE DAY

DYLAN is riding on a thrilling roller coaster. He is sitting in the front, so he is not sure if there is anyone behind him.

He is rising from the start and reaches to the peak before the drop. He can feel his stomach hanging like his body being tore in half. Then the roller coaster begins its way down and continues on just a quick second. The same scenario repeats itself for about four times.

DYLAN feels very nauseous both in the dream and in reality. DYLAN rocks back and forth in reality. The pain becomes unbearable making DYLAN to wake up.

Everyone, please exit the theater safely. Everything is going to be fine.

STAFF B

(loud)

Those of you that are on the upper levels, please be careful when coming down from the stairs. Please do not run or push. Everyone will get out safely.

Are you okay, DYLAN? Is something wrong?

Yeah, of course. Don’t scare me, DYLAN.

I’m so sorry baby. How are you feeling?

DYLAN

(speaks softly and breathing heavily)

Not good at all. My head is pounding and I feel like burning up. My stomach hurts a lot. I have hard time breathing.

I usually check the expiration date on everything I eat or drink. I can’t believe the one time I don’t check I get food poisoning. It was hell last night. Thanks for killing me.

SARA becomes sad.

SARA (frowning)
I am so sorry. I didn’t mean to kill you. I didn’t know. I never knew the store would sell expired drinks. This brand is your favorite. You always get it so I got you this one.

College Boys and Their Mishap

April 24, 2012 § Leave a comment

FADE IN:

INT. THE COFFEE BEAN & TEA LEAF – AFTERNOON

ALLEN and JAY are sitting in the middle row and next to the window. There are two coffees and working materials on the table. There are two workers chatting at the counter. There are four tables: one occupied by ALLEN and JAY and the other by a blonde, haired woman who is working on her laptop.

ALLEN

So, you thinking about quitting school?

JAY

I don’t know yet. Let’s just say right now school is not my thing right now.

ALLEN

So, what is your thing?

JAY

I don’t know man. I have so many ideas. Like I was with one of my friends last semester and we were in this acting thing for theater. I contributed in the writing and got to see what they were doing. They said if I continue to be interested, I can participate in the screenwriting process or even some directing. So, I find acting really cool and I am thinking about that.

ALLEN

(astonishing)

Oh, wow! That sounds good. Why not major in theater? Maybe you gonna be a star someday.

JAY

(laughs hysterically)

Naw. Maybe. Who knows.

ALLEN

(looks confusing)

What’s stopping you then?

JAY

Well, I am currently an Econ major, so it doesn’t really go with theater.

A person can be seen outside walking pass the coffee shop.

ALLEN

(crosses his legs)

You still have time to change your major. It’s not too late yet.

JAY

Naw. Theater does not make enough money. Besides, I like Economics. It’s very interesting. It really gets me thinking.

ALLEN

Double major then. Those majors actually blend in. With an Economics degree, perhaps you can finance your money to become a successful actor. See, it all works out.

JAY

(laughs)

Oh, yeah! That so true. Hmmmm…let me think about it. It’s not a bad idea. I never thought of it that way. But still, I kinda don’t want to go to school.

ALLEN

(straight face)

Why?

Two young women walk into the store. One of the worker takes their orders why the other start to make the coffee.

JAY

(drinks coffee)

My parents pay for my tuition. They said they are going to stop paying for school starting this semester and I have to get the money for school somehow. They believe a college degree gives nothing back in return and it is just pouring money down the drain. My parents came here from Malaysia and worked really hard to start their own bakery business.

The worker who took the order assists the other worker with making the coffee. The two women chat as they wait.

JAY (CONT’D)

They both have no college education and been raising my sister and I with that bakery. So, that’s why they think that college isn’t really worth investing and it’s true though. People are pouring their money into college but when they get out, they don’t get what they want in return and they are stuck with a huge debt.

ALLEN

Well, it depends. But I see your point.

JAY

Yeah. I have been working at the bakery since I can remember. I feel like I want to open up my own bakery and start my own business.

ALLEN

Sounds like a plan. So does that mean you have already decided what you want?

JAY looks down to his coffee cup and plays with ti. He looks depressing.

JAY

I don’t know yet. I am still thinking about it.

ALLEN

Well, to me, I think you are not thinking this thoroughly.

JAY looks back at ALLEN. The two women get their coffee and exit the coffee shop.

ALLEN (CONT’D)

You don’t have to drop out of college. Remember, once you are in college, try to stay there. So why don’t you try this? Take a semester off. Think about what you want to do and then come back and tell the dean or whoever what you have decided. That way, if you decide to come back, you can just come back. But then if you drop out and change your mind, then you will have to start all over again. But if one semester is not enough for you, request a year off. By then, you should be able to figure out what you want to do with your life. So don’t just drop out.

JAY

(puts right hand on chin and rubs and thinks)

Hmmm…I never thought of that. Maybe I should do that.

ALLEN

(surprising)

Wow! Are you serious? Well, yeah, you can do that.

JAY places both of his hands on the table.

JAY

I’ll think about it.

As the blonde, haired woman gets up with her belongings and walks pass by ALLEN and JAY’s table, JAY moves his coffee towards the window. ALLEN moves his left leg inside the table. She leaves the coffee shop.

JAY (CONT’D)

How are you and Mable?

ALLEN

Good and the bad. Other than that, we doing pretty good except when she annoys the crap out of me.

JAY

(laughs loud)

That’s good. I haven’t really seen her for a while. I haven’t really seen anyone for a while. I mean the people that we know.

ALLEN

(smiles)

You know, if we didn’t room together this year, I thought you died or something happened. Or it could also be you want to be left alone. No offense. You sort of just disappeared.

JAY

(edgy and defensive)
What! No way! Are you serious? That is not even funny. Wow! What the hell! Who’s been saying that?

ALLEN

(smiles)

No. I am saying that to you. Others just say you disappeared.

JAY

(slightly agitates)

Ohhh! Naw, I just wanted to do my own thing. I can’t if I am around people. But, dang! I can’t believe people think of me that way. Now I want to know who has been saying that.

ALLEN

(laughs)

Well, that’s what happens when you just vanish without saying anything.

ALLEN

(drinks coffee)

Well, whatever you think of let me know since if you decide to go home, I have to look for another person to room with. Unless you want to pay the rent.

JAY

Oh yeah! Of course. I’ll let you know ahead of time. Hey, man! I’m gonna head out. You gonna stay?

ALLEN

I have to finish my work. You can head out.

JAY

Alright then. I’ll head out then. Later man!

ALLEN and JAY do their farewell handshake. JAY walks out and ALLEN grabs his cell phone from his left pocket. He dials and calls. Someone picks up on the other line.

SOMEONE (V.O.)

Hello?

ALLEN

(sighs)

Hello. Guess what happened?

FADE OUT.

Bitter Sweet Love

April 21, 2012 § Leave a comment

INT. BEDROOM – MORNING

KRYSTAL and JOEL are sleeping in the bed. JOEL rolls over and lays his entire body on top of KRYSTAL. She becomes really annoyed and JOEL wakes up.

KRYSTAL

(sighs)

JOEL

What’s wrong?

KRYSTAL

(sits up on the bed, crosses her arms, and looks miserable)

JOEL, I love you very much but I don’t think I can’t live with you. I’m really sorry to tell you so late. I know Dean and Taylor have already found a place, so there is no way for you to live with them.

KRYSTAL (CONT’D)

(sheds tears)

Please don’t take me wrong. I love you very much. You are so nice to me and I know I am very mean to you. And when I am mean to you, you take it in and don’t yell back because you are very nice. I know I can’t be like that and I really appreciate that you understand that.

KRYSTAL (CONT’D)

(cries and breathes heavily)

But I just can’t do this anymore. I feel suffocated with you being around me all the time and I feel like I can’t do anything without you being here 24/7. I feel like I can’t breathe.

KRYSTAL (CONT’D)

(looks at JOEL)

I am really sorry. I am a mean and selfish person to be with. I understand if you don’t want to be with me anymore because I want you out of my house. I thought I was ready but I am not. But it’s not too late to find a place to live in.

JOEL

(optimistically)

Naw, don’t worry about it. I didn’t know.  I’ll find a place. There are a lot of places for lease right now.

JOEL (CONT’D)

(puts right arm around KRYSTAL and hugs her)

You should have told me earlier. I really thought you were okay with it. But no worries, I can always find a place to live in.

KRYSTAL

(cries even more heavily)

I’m so sorry. You can leave me if you want. I understand. I am a bad person.

JOEL

(uses both hands and firmly grabs KRYSTAL on the shoulders and looks in her eyes)

Naw, don’t worry about it. I am not going to leave you because of this. That makes no sense at all. I understand you need your space. I am sorry I just invaded your space without really asking for your consent. I thought you be okay with this. But I totally get it.

For two minutes, the couples hug each other while KRYSTAL continues to cry.

KRYSTAL

(wipes tears)

I’m gonna use the bathroom. Want me to get your toothbrush?

JOEL

(smiles)

Yeah.

KRYSTAL gets off the bed and walks into the bathroom.

JOEL

(whispers)

Should have told me earlier. Who am I going to room with? I don’t know anybody and pretty much sure everyone has every found someone to room with.

JOEL grabs his laptop from the table and surfs on the internet to find a place to live. He finds an apartment place called “Hayward Apartments.” He grabs his cell phone from the table and calls the telephone number.

JOEL

(talks on the cell phone)

Hello?

He runs out to the garage to continue on the conversation. KRYSTAL walks out from the bathroom with JOEL’s toothbrush. She notices him running out to the garage and then she goes into the room. She sees the apartment information on the laptop and understands that JOEL will be moving out sooner than she anticipates. She places the toothbrush on the table and sits on the chair.

INT. GARAGE – SAME

JOEL

(sounds a little suspicious and nervous)

Yeah, is this the Hayward Apartments? I saw the internet that you guys are leasing out a room for $450. I was wondering if the offer still exists.

JOEL hears the response.

JOEL (CONT’D)

(happy)

Yeah, I was wondering if I can come take a look. Will today around 4pm be okay?

JOEL (CONT’D)

(waits for response)

Oh, okay! Then I will see you around 4pm then. Thanks! Bye!

JOEL walks back to the KRYSTAL’s room feeling relieved.

INT. BEDROOM – SAME

JOEL

(looks at KRYSTAL with content)

I found a place that is cheap and looks pretty good. It is all the way down south but then there are a lot of buses that passes by. So commuting to work and food will not be a problem.

KRYSTAL

(speaks softly with remorse)

Oh…okay. Did you need me to drive you down there?

JOEL

(starts putting on clothes)

No. I can get there by bus. Don’t worry about it. I am going there now.

JOEL (CONT’D)

(finishes putting on clothes)

I’ll see you later.

KRYSTAL

(speaks normally)

Bye. Call me if you need anything.

JOEL

Okay.

JOEL grabs the toothbrush and brushes his teeth in the bathroom. He then leaves the condominium. KRYSTAL goes to her bed. She curls up under her sheets and begins to cry.

How It Connected by A Simple Annoyance

April 20, 2012 § Leave a comment

INT. SUITE AT AN UNIVERSITY – NIGHT

The new kid walks into his room very tired and sweaty. He then places his luggage down. He sits on his new blue mattress bed and pulls out his laptop. He tries to connect to the internet.

NEW KID (V.O.)

(smiling and filled with content while breathing slightly fast)

The internet is not working…I thought I had the connections done before heading here. Crap! I have no internet which means there is no way I can connect. I have to connect to let Amy know I arrived safely, otherwise, she is going to freak out.

New Kid then remembers that he had a quick glance at his new suite mate’s room and saw him playing World of Warcraft meaning. This means that he had some method of connecting to the internet. He approaches the new suite mate’s room and knocks on the door.

SUITE MATE

(pauses the game and walks toward NEW KID with annoyance in his face)

Yeah?

NEW KID

(speaks with embarrassing voice)

Sorry to bother you. My internet isn’t working at all. You think I can use your computer to activate my internet access? I thought I did it at home, but apparently it isn’t working.

SUITE MATE

Yeah. Just let me switch it to desktop.

Both approaches to the SUITE MATE’s computer. NEW KID begins to surf the internet and continues his way to activate the internet.

NEW KID

(smiles)

Thanks a lot. Sorry to bother you.

SUITE MATE

No problem.

SUITE MATE goes back playing World of Warcraft and NEW KID returns to his room. He tries to access the internet in his laptop and fails again.

NEW KID

(frustrated, in low voice)

OMG! Are you serious?

NEW KID now has to ask SUITE MATE again for his computer again. He waits about five minutes before deciding to ask SUITE MATE to use his computer.

NEW KID (V.O.)

(discontent)

Ah crap! He is going to be annoyed with me. Way to go to start off our relationship.

NEW KID heads back to SUITE MATE’s room and knocks. SUITE MATE pauses his game and gets up from his chair.

SUITE MATE

(sighing)

SUITE MATE walks toward NEW KID.

SUITE MATE

(changes his facial expression to normal)
Yeah?

NEW KID

Sorry to bother you again. It is not working at all. You think you can help me with the internet access?

SUITE MATE

(looks optimistic)

Yeah, sure. I’ll give it a try.

Both walk to NEW KID’S room. SUITE MATE attempts to get the internet access but fails.

SUITE MATE

(sympathetically)

Sorry. I’m not sure how to do it either. You can wait until tomorrow and ask people at campus on how to get the internet access.

NEW KID

(disappointed)

Ahh! It’s okay. Thanks though. Sorry to bother you.

Both walk out of NEW KID’S room.

NEW KID

You playing WOW?

SUITE MATE

Yeah.

SUITE MATE heads back to his room and continues playing World of Warcraft. NEW KID heads back into his room and somehow manages to get the internet access.

NEW KID

(screams in a low voice)

Ohh! There it is!

And two weeks later, NEW KID and SUITE MATE play video games and eat meals together with the rest of the suite mates.
