SCENE THIRTEEN
EXT. CITY-TWILIGHT

This city is unlike any other that everybody has traveled to.This one unlike the others is also outside of the Milky Way Galaxy. The city rises high into the sky under two different suns.One is a lot closer than the other but the city seems to sparkle underneath the light.It’s colorful and twists into the air like something out of a cartoon.Cars fly around it.They are all white, black and chrome, which makes the view of the city a little hazy like all the other cities but this one is still prettier.The city sits on a platform above a giant body of water that stretches on for miles.It is as if they are in the midst of a giant ocean that is like the Pacific or the Atlantic back on Earth (Gaia).Gradually, the camera comes down after showing a view of the city to show people wandering around in their everyday lives.They all wear colorful, exotic clothing that match the city well.There are parts of the sidewalk that move like in airports the belts that bring a person from one place to another but the people who use these either have too much stuff to carry or are very elderly.Everybody else for the most part is an adult heading to work or just walking around since most of the kids are in school.

SUPERIMPOSE: RHEA ON THE PLANET POSEIDON
INT. ROYAL BALLROOM

People in gowns swirl around as the men lead a dance.It’s almost as if everybody took a step backwards all the way into the 1800’s.The scene is like something out of a Jane Austen novel while the guests dance with each other.Or even like the scene where Romeo and Juliet meet for everybody is wearing a mask.On all the sides of the dance floor are people chatting away while they eat or drink or some of them are just standing around talking.There’s not a single frowning face.Everybody is happy.Joyful.An announcer calls out people’s names every time they come down a spiraling staircase.

Roulette stalks out in her normal fashion but she does not have her posse.Instead, two large white and black dogs are beside her.But of course, as always, Roulette is wearing something incredibly sexy that does not match the beauty of everybody else.She is wearing almost a full piece suit of leather.It’s sleek and a lustrous black color.It stretches down to her ankles where she wears boots that match her outfit.They’re just as tight as her strange bathing-suit like outfit that embraces her body.It only hangs on one arm with the leather dipping down revealing her other porcelain shoulder.Like everybody else she’s wearing a mask but here’s is like no other.It’s tacky and stretches down to her nose.The thing is silver but looks as if it were made out of mosaics.Her platinum blond hair was covered by something black on her head.It’s a weird cloth that has a bow tied there.

Roulette stands there leaning back a little while she lays her two hands on her pimp cane.Both hands are covered by arm warmers but one is shorter than the other one.Everybody is still so caught up in her outfit even the announcer is that nobody notices Kade and Storm sneak in.They hurry away from them going down a side stairway that isn’t as grand as the spiraling marble staircase that Roulette is going to walk down.

ANNOUNCER

Miss Roulette Aphrodite.

Roulette slinks down the grand stairway with both of her dogs while using the cane for ‘support’.Her body sways to the music that plays even though it’s not her type of music.It’s too gentle and beautiful to fit her personality.Once on the main floor, Kade and Storm come over to her.The two are dressed up.They look like they belong at the ball.Kade is in simple black suit while Storm is wearing a simple blood red dress while she wears a raven black wig with thick hair falling to her shoulders.She looks like a complete different person.

ROULETTE
(whispers)

Stay here for about an hour and a half.Let people

know that you’re here so you have an alibi.Are

your people ready, Kade?

KADE

Zoie has been dying for a job in her expertise.

ROULETTE

She has the cameras under control.

Kade turns a bit pointing to his ears showing that he is wearing an ear piece.

ROULETTE

Very nice.Adam is nowhere in sight.

KADE

That dickhead.

ROULETTE

Watch the language, Kaden, look who you’re

amongst.
KADE

You shouldn’t be talking Miss Sexy.

ROULETTE

What sort of comeback is that?

KADE

A 100% Kaden one.

STORM
God!You two really are like siblings.
ROULETTE

Well I am the big sister.

KADE

We could all tell.You’re the only one who

calls me Kaden not Kade.

ROULETTE

Oh so I’m the villain now that I’m missing

one letter in your name.She wants to be

called Storm and you call her Savannah.

STORM

She has a good point.

KADE

Leave me alone!

He walks off melting away into the crowd that stands around the dance floor chatting away.Storm looks around unsure what to do as Roulette is pulled away by somebody who looks super important.Slowly, she wanders away and accidently crashes into somebody who is dancing.She falls over crashing on the ground.Slowly, the person turns around and it is Zachary (we first met him as a police officer in the beginning).He pulls her to her feet and smiles.

ZACHARY

I’m so, so sorry miss.It won…

He holds onto Storm gazing at her before pulling away the mask from her face.

ZACHARY
Savannah?
STORM
(upset)

No, I’m sorry.My name is Raven.

ZACHARY

Oh sorry.And you look like a Raven.

STORM

Um you mean like the animal or the name?

ZACHARY

The name.

Storm hangs there staring at him.Her teeth dig into her bottom lip.She’s extremely upset about this meeting.A single tear rolls down her cheek and Zachary brushes it away.He backs awhile while gazing at her but then stops.

ZACHARY

Do you know how to dance?

STORM
Yes.
ZACHARY

Will you dance with me?

STORM
Sure.

Zachary puts the mask back on her face and backs away grabbing onto her hand.A smile spreads across Storm’s face as she follows him.

STORM

What’s your name?

ZACHARY
Zachary.
STORM

I once knew a Zachary.A long time ago.He

was like a brother to me.

ZACHARY

Now I wouldn’t want to be like your brother.

It might be a little creepy.

STORM

I hope that wasn’t a pick-up line.

ZACHARY

Sadly, it was.

STORM

Ha I’ll still dance with you.

Zachary wounds his fingers around Storm’s hands pulling her onto the dance floor spinning her around twice before they fall in sync with the dancers.Storm lies her hands on Zachary’s shoulders while gazing into his eyes.She shoots a glance across the room to see Kade standing near the edge of the dance floor while holding onto a cup of fruit punch.It slips from his hand hitting the ground and shatters.Pieces of glass fly out everywhere causing a lot of people to make a fuss.Storm looks away.

STORM’S POV: ZACHARY’S EYES.

All Storm sees are his beautiful blue eyes while they gaze into her’s.They flicker shut every now and then.There’s much passion glimmering in the backs of them.

Storm stands there holding onto him as they gracefully float across the floor together as if they are in the scene of a Jane Austen novel.In the background, Kade storms off shoving people away while she just clings to Zachary smiling before leaning her head against his chest while smiling.Her fingers clasp his shoulders.The music plays softly while they linger together.Zachary wraps his arms around her waist pulling her closer and closer as they float away together into a paradise of their own.
