INTRODUCTION 1: SCENE 1
INT. BEDROOM 1: NIGHT:
Two people sat alone in a dark room at a table. Each has a glass in their hand. One of the men was young and blond, with a grim expression, the other much older with sleek white hair that was cut short.
YOUNG MAN: Where am I?
OLDER MAN: If you don't know, I'm afraid I can't tell you...
YOUNG MAN: Why not!?
OLDER MAN: She told me what she needed to tell you, and the rest you have to find out on your own...
YOUNG MAN: I don't understand...why? Why did she tell me to find you?
OLDER MAN: (Shakes his head and takes a long sip , emptying his glass and setting it gently on the table.)
YOUNG MAN: (Slams his own glass on the table causing it to shatter. The older man did not look up.)
YOUNG MAN: (cont'd) Who is she?! If she can tell me what to do and who I am, then why can't she tell me who she is?! Why won't she tell me her name?
OLDER MAN: C.C. can't tell you who she is...because you already know...(He looks up.)
YOUNG MAN: (His voice softens.)I'm afraid I've no idea what you're talking about.
OLDER MAN: C.C. is a part of you that you've forgotten. That is why she sent you to me. To help you remember.
YOUNG MAN: See that's what I don't understand...remember what?
OLDER MAN: Are you aware...(break)...of the esscence of your powers?
YOUNG MAN: (Laughing forcibly) What powers?
OLDER MAN: I'll take that as a no...first off I'll start by explaining your deadline.
YOUNG MAN: New Year's Eve?
OLDER MAN: (nods) The reason for everything...your loss of memory...the kingdom falling...it all revolves around that date. Because...you don't exist.
YOUNG MAN: That's preposterous!
OLDER MAN: You don't exist, that's why your emotions are stronger than ever before!
YOUNG MAN: Funny! You'd think that I couldn't feel anything if I didn't exist!
OLDER MAN: Yes...you would think. However, as we draw nearer to the year's end you grow closer to existance.
YOUNG MAN: Stop! (He stands slamming his fists on the table)
OLDER MAN: (Raises his voice) You're dead!
YOUNG MAN: NO!
OLDER MAN: YES! You died! Remember it?! Remember who killed you! REMEMBER!
YOUNG MAN: NO!!!
(The scene becomes dark as the young man clutches his face in his hands, closing his eyes.)
INT. CASTLE: GREAT HALL: MIDNIGHT:
Four people (along with half a dozen soldiers) are standing in an expansive marble room with dozens of pillars at its edges. A throne sits at the far center of it, a purple cloak draped over it. Two of the people are beside one another. A man, Caldet, and a woman, Cora. Caldet is holding Cora tightly by the waist. The young man is standing in front of them. Behind him the guards have a young woman (Celia) surrounded.
CALDET: Kalen, I am so happy to see you join us on the night of our wedding. (He grabs Cora more tightly. She winces.)
CORA: (she gasps) Kale!
YOUNG MAN: Caldet! Let her go!
CALDET: I would...but you see that I'm quite afraid that she wouldn't come back. (he laughs)
YOUNG MAN: Let her go!
CALDET: Name your terms. What do you have to offer me that would make me want to give up my wife?
CORA: (groans in disgust)
YOUNG MAN: (harshly) If you let her go, then I promise that you can live!
CALDET: How about...you die, or she does?
CALDET: Take it or leave it, Kale.
YOUNG MAN: That's Kalen to you!
CALDET: We're all friends here, so let us skip the formalities...choose, Kale. You or her? (he raises a knife to Cora's throat. The tension in the room grows)
YOUNG MAN: Me!
CELIA: NO! KALE!
CORA: Kale, don't!
CELIA: (a flash of light breaks the soldiers flanks as she uses magic. She runs over to Kale.)
CALDET: (smiles) Excellent!
Caldet throws Cora forward. She falls to the floor with a smack. He lunges forward and stabs Kalen in the chest. The clock at the end of the room chimes. Celia and Kalen scream. The scene goes black.
