Scene 1: Lily’s Laceration
(Setting- School classroom, a drama class, a teacher is in the front,students watching, some not.)
Mr. Mackey: Alright, so who remembers when Juliet finds Romeo, what she does? ( girl raises her hand.)
Mr. Mackey: Lily?
Lily: She tried to die the way Romeo did, so she tried to get poison from the cup too, but it didn’t kill her.
Mr. Mackey: Yes, and then what?
(Girl in class interrupts)
Paige: Who cares? It’s the end of the day and the bell…….
Mr. Mackey: Go on everybody see you tomorrow.
(Lily grabs her stuff as a blond haired girl walks over.)
Lily: Wow, how can Paige and her friends always treat Mr. Mackey like that? …Hannah?
Hannah: Sorry, I’m trying to think about who I should try out for in Mr. Mackey’s play. Lily: I’ll help figure it out when you come over tonight.
Hannah: Fine, but are your parents going to be home?
Lily: No why?
Hannah: Oh because, they always fight when I’m there.
Lily: Well, tonight they are going to a fundraiser for my dad’s office.
Hannah: Ok, well what about Alan?
Lily: Oh do I smell lust?
Hannah: NO!! He’s cute though, crap!
(she looks at her watch.)
Hannah: I need to hurry, my sister is going to kill me if I’m not out front when she gets here, see you later!
(she runs from the classroom.)
(Lily walks away.)
(screen fades with a new setting. Setting- Lily’s house, looks like in the woods. We zoom into house where Lily’s on the couch with a phone in her hand.)
Lily: Hannah, when will you be here?
Hannah: Like 20 minutes, I’m just finishing my dinner.
Lily: Ok well hurry. All the snow we’re getting right now will make my road slippery.
Hannah: I know, but why did your parents make your house so far in the woods?
Lily: Said it would be safe.
Hannah: Why? Dunning doesn’t have psycho killers.
Lily: Well, actually I’m not sure what they were thinking. But I got to go eat, see you soon.
(She hangs up. Lily walks into the kitchen. Phone rings.)
Lily: Is someone there?
Lily: Ok, bye then.
(She hangs up)
Lily: Odd. Must be the snow.
(She looks out window.)
Lily: Wow it’s coming down.
(She opens one of the cabinets, and we hear a loud thud.)
Lily: What the heck? Mom? Dad? Alan? Great now I’m hearing stuff coming from the upstairs.
(She puts a box of macaroni on the counter and grabs a pot. She buts water in it and starts carrying it over to the stove. We hear a bam. She drops the pot of water.)
Lily: Crap! What was that?
(She goes into the living room and looks up the stairs.)
Lily: Hello, Alan are you home?
Lily: I’m losing it.
(She goes back into the kitchen and she looks on the counter and where she set the phone, was nothing.)
Lily: What the…
Lily: Where is it?
(She walks into a little room with a bookcase, desk, chairs, and couch. The phone is not on the jack there either.)
Lily: Ok I’m getting out of here.
(She goes through the living room into little sunroom and grabs her coat. She looks in the pockets.)
Lily: Where’d my keys go?
(She walks by the staircase and the storage space in it.)
Lily: I’m so freaked out.
(She goes back by the staircase and stops. She hears something.)
Lily: What the heck?
(Staircase door slams open and a somebody pops out wearing a leather trench coat and a drama mask with an estranged look.)
(She runs through the living room and into the sunroom and locks the door.)
Lily: Oh my god!
(There’s pounds against the door.)
Lily: Leave me alone stop this!
Lily: What am I going to do?
(She starts crying. All of the sudden a huge rock is thrown into the window of the sunroom, behind her.)
(She runs out of the sunroom, and through the back porch door.)
Lily: Somebody help me!!
(She runs around the front of the house, and car is almost all the way down the round to the house.)
(Car stops and a man gets out. It’s Lily’s brother.)
Alan: What’s going on?
Lily: Somebody’s in the house!
(He runs his hand through his brown hair.)
Lily: Somebody tried to kill me, we need to get out of here!
Alan: Calm down, you need to….
Lily: Behind you!
(Somebody grabs him from behind and slashes his throat.)
(He drops to the ground.)
(Killer looks at her.)
(He/she starts running after her and she runs too.)
Lily: Somebody please help!
(She looks back, and nobody’s there.)
Lily: Where’d he?
(She’s jumped on from behind.)
Lily: Ah, no! Somebody…..
(She’s stabbed in the back)
(She manages to get out of the grip. She runs as fast as she can go with her back stabbed.)
(She falls from weakness.)
Lily-in quieted voice: Help.
(Killer turns her around on her back.)
Lily: PLEASE DON’T!
(Killer has her so she can’t move. He/She raises the knife.)
Lily- in weak voice: Stop.
(Killer hacks the knife down into her heart.)
(Her eyes shut. Killer gets up and runs.)
(Screen fades, end of scene.)
