Story chapter 3:

 

(It is another day at Kings highschool. The bell has rung and students are heading to class. Virgil is walking to class with Drake who has his nose buried in a newspaper.)

Virgil: I’ve been meaning to ask, but why are you of all people reading a newspaper?

Drake: To know my fortune of course. I’m reading for the horoscopes.

Virgil: Seriously? You actually believe in those things?

Drake: Hey don’t knock it till you try it? It has some pretty good stuff. Yesterday, it said that soon I will meet my one true love.

Virgil: Explains why you’re so interested. Whatever, I’ll see you later gotta go to class

(Virgil leaves Drake who still reads his paper and enters the homeroom. Virgil looks around for a seat and see’s Amy waving enthusiastically to him as she sits next to her friend Reina, who has black hair with rainbow highlights. Virgil sighs but see’s that there are no other seats and goes to sit down.)

Amy: Hi Virgil!

Virgil (Uninterested): Hey.

Amy: I hope we have such an amazing day????

 Virgil: Yeah sure that’ll be great….

(Just then the door opens and their teacher enters.)

Teacher: Sorry I’m late class. But before we start todays lesson, I have the most amazing thing to show all of you.

(He opens up his bag and pulls out a tiny doll. The doll has grey skin and is quite raggedy. It has 3 hair strands sticking out of it. Everyone seems taken back.)

Virgil: Ah, what is that???????

Teacher: It’s some kind of sacred doll that is supposed to give good luck. I bough it off ebay.  Rubbing it gives good luck. I’m going to pass it around so you all have a chance to have some good luck passed around to you.

(The teacher passes the doll to the front row and the students reluctantly rub it.  Eventually it reaches Amy who gives it a vigorous rub. She hands it to Virgil.)

Amy: Here you go Virgie!

Virgil: No.

Reina: Come on Virgil, everyone else is doing it, it’s no big deal.

Virgil: Sorry but I refuse to believe that this thing is supposed to grant good luck. I mean look at it, its freaks me out. I’ll pass. In fact…

(Virgil takes the doll from Amy and he throws it into the trash. The Teacher gasp.)

Teacher: Virgil????! What have you done????

Virgil: What it’s no big deal. It’s just a doll.

Teacher: Do you realize what you’ve done? The doll is supposed to give good luck. By rejecting it, you’ve just brought bad luck on yourself.

Virgil: Oh please? That just silly superstition. I’m perfectly fine.

Teacher: I’d watch out if I were you…

(Virgil rolls his eyes.)

Amy: Oh no! Virgil you’re cursed!

Virgil: Oh barf, nothings gonna happen to me.

(Virgil takes out his computer. He starts it up but then all of a sudden as it starts, a blue screen of death appears that read: Windows has experiences a serious malfunction! This computer will self destruct in 30 seconds to ensure that this virus does not spread.)

Virgil: What the hell?

(The computer begins to short circuit and a few sparks of smoke and puff appear.  Everyone seems startled. The whole class looks at Virgil).

Virgil: Huh that was weird.

Reina: Weird or part of your curse?

Virgil: There are no such things as curses. My computer must have had a bad bug it means nothing.

Teacher: Beware, beware…

Virgil: Will you cut that out.

(Later the class finishes and the students walk out. Virgil walks out of class.)

Virgil: I’ve just remembered how much I hate biology. Arghhh, I’m so beat.

(Virgil raises his hand in a fist as a yawn and his hand enters a locker. The owner closes the locker and Virgil cries out in pain.)

Virgil: Owwww! What the hell?

(The owner doesn’t appear to notice Virgil and he reopens his locker and walks off. Virgil clutches his hand in pain. Then Reina and Amy come up to Virgil.)

Amy: Virg are you ok?

Reina: Hey Amy, I don’t think we should be around him. Seeing that he’s cursed.

Virgil: I’m not cursed ok.

Reina: Whatever, come on Amy I gotta go practice for the big soccer game tomorrow.

Amy: Ok, bye Virgie.

Virgil: hmmmmm.

(Just then Drake comes up to Virgil and he notices his hand.)

Drake: Whats up with your hand?

Virgil: Just a little accident, nothing serious.

Drake: If you say so, I-

(Drake stops when he see’s a girl with strawberry blonde hair. She has a rather shy look and she wears a light green top with a dark green skirt and boots.)

Drake: Dude, looks its Fiona! Just my luck. Looks like my horoscope was right after all.

Virgil: She’s your true love? Have you even spoken to her?

Drake: Not yet, but it could happen. Keep an eye on her, I gotta go get my perfume from my locker.

(Drake leaves and Virgil sighs. He raises one hand in disbelief and he brings it down. When he does he notices he feels something soft. He has a surprised look and see’s what he’s touched. He gasp. His hand is on one of Fiona’s breast.  She looks shocked and then she quickly turns around and screams with an embarrassed red face. People turn and notice.)

Fiona: You, what are you doing you….touched me…

Virgil: No no no no! Its not what you think I can explain-

(She runs off. People watch her and then they turn and glare at Virgil. They turn and start coming up to him.)

Student: Whats your problem huh? You like harassing girls?

Virgil: No its not what you think

(Virgil gets shoved into the wall with a bunch of angry students.  They then attack him and he yells out.  When they are finished, Virgil is on the floor and he is hurt.)

Virgil: Ahhh

(The students walk away. Then Jaden walks up to him with Ace and Miles.)

Jaden: Virgil, whats up?

Virgil: A big misunderstanding.

(Ace helps him up.)

Virgil: So far things don’t seem to be going my way today.

Miles: Are you cursed or something?

Virgil: No, there is no such thing as curses!

(Just then Drake returns and he see’s the situation.)

Drake: What happened to you? And where’s Fiona?

(Virgil just sighs and walks off. Just then the principal opens the door and it smacks Virgil in the face> He has an annoyed expression on his face.)

Principal: Oh excuse me.

(The scene changes to lunch in the cafeteria. Virgil enters the cafeteria with Jaden and the others. When he does many people shoot him dirty looks.  He pretends not to notice.)

Drake: Why are you all of a sudden public enemy number one?

Virgil: Leave it.

(In the line for lunch, Virgil takes his food and a bottle of milk. He sits down with Jaden and the others.)

Miles: So are you better now?

Virgil: Yeah I guess.

(Virgil drinks the milk and then he has a weird look on his face. He spits the milk out and reacts in a very bad way and he collapses. Jaden and the group look down on him.)

Ace: Virgil, are you ok?

(Virgil gives out a weak grunt. Jaden checks the milk.)

Jaden: Expiration date….1983??? This milk is like toxic.

(Virgil gives out further weak grunts. He gets up weakly and almost throws up.)

Miles: Are you sure you’re gonna be fine?

Virgil: I’m fine… I think my appetite is good for now.

(He leaves and he wobbles weakly. Just then Virgil throws up. He looks and see’s he thrown up on Rina’s shoes at the table she’s with alongside Amy, Reina and Fiona. Rina is horrified.)

Rina: These….shoes…..I just bought them???! You jerk????!

(She kicks Virgil in the shin and he holds his leg in pain.  He stumbles upon and lands on a table with 3 guys.  Their lunches fall to the ground.)

Guy: Our food!

(The three of them pick up Virgil and throw him out of the cafeteria he lands on the ground.)

Virgil: Ughhhh

(He begins to pick himself up and he takes a step but he slips on the recently waxed floor and he falls down a flight of stairs and hits the bottom. Virgil just lays down and he groans.)

(The scene later cuts to the end of the day and everyone is heading to the buses. Virgil looks terrible and he walks with Drake and the others.)

Drake: And I get called unlucky. I think you’re cursed for real man.

Virgil No, curses aren’t real.

Ace: Then how do you explain all this crap that’s happened to you?

Virgil: I’m just having a difficult day.

Jaden: Yeah I’m sure tomorrow will be better for you.

(Jaden, Drake and Virgil then leave Ace and Miles and head to their bus home. Jaden and Drake enter but as soon as Virgil starts to get on, the bus driver stops him.)

Virgil: What gives?

Bus driver: Sorry kid, the bus is full. You’re gonna have to find another way home.

Virgil: But I-

(The door closes and the bus takes off. Jaden, Drake and Dina both look at Virgil as the bus rides and they exchange glances. Just then it starts to rain. Virgil sighs and begins to walk home.)

(At the house, Dina talks on the phone with Sonia and Drake and Jaden watch T.V. Jus then the doorbell rings and Jaden opens it up. He looks and see’s it Virgil. He is covered in dirt and his hair is all wild and messed up and his clothes are torn.)

Jaden: What happened to you?

Virgil: First, A car drove by and splashed me with water. Then all of a sudden out the blue as I walk a pack of stray dogs come to me and then the next thing I know I’m on the ground. As I pick myself up, it starts hailing. So when I was getting pelted, in anger I picked one up to throw it but I slipped and hit myself with it.  Then when I walk home again, I fall down a man hole and lied there for like 5 minutes. Then-

Jaden: Ok, ok, I get it. No need for your life story.

Virgil: I’m going to bed

( Virgil walks up and then he lies on his bed. Just then his bed collapse and he and it fall to the ground. Virgil groans.)

(Its morning and Virgil wakes up quite groggied. He comes downstairs and see’s Drake and Jaden again on the couch, while Dina is putting her plate away.)

Drake: Hey Virgil. Mom and Dad went for groceries. How’d you sleep?

Virgil: Not too good. I had this nightmare where I was being chased by this crazy naked old guy with a machete. (Shudders). I’m glad its Saturday so I could at least sleep in.

Jaden: This curse even bothers you in your sleep?

Virgil: There are no curses! I’m gonna have breakfast

(Virgil takes two pieces of toast and puts them in the toaster.  Nothing happens and Virgil checks and see’s that the toaster is unplugged. He plugs it in and when he does he gets a shock and is blown back. Drake and Jaden exchange a glance.)

Dina: Oh by the way Virgil, today’s Reina’s big soccer game. So today, she thinks its best that you stay away, considering your curse.

Virgil: What, she’s being ridiculous. I’m not cursed or anything. Yesterday was just a bad day. That’s all

Drake: Are you sure man? I think it safer if you just stay home.

Jaden: Yeah, I think this luck might kill you by the end of the day. Or sooner.

Virgil: I don’t need to hear this, I’m going to that game and you can’t stop me. I’m gonna go take a shower.

(Virgil heads upstairs. The sound of the shower starting is heard. Later Virgil shrieks so loud.)

Jaden: What’s wrong?

Virgil(Yelling from upstairs): THE WATER IS BURNING HOT!

(Later Jaden, Drake and Sonia prepare to enter their parents car to head to the game. Virgil shortly comes out of the door after. He heads towards his motorcycle.)

Dad: Don’t you wanna ride with us Virgil?

Virgil: Nah, I’ll get there faster on my own.

Dina: I think its safer if you come with us. What if you get in an accident?

Virgil: Ridiculous.

(Virgil starts his motorcycle and he drives off. The car soon follows after. Later they arrive at the soccer stadium where the two girl teams are getting ready. Reina is standing with Sonia, Amy, Rina and Fiona. Virgil gets off his bike while Jaden and co get out of the car. Reina see’s Virgil.)

Reina: What are you doing here?

Virgil: What? I have the right to be here. Look I’m fine now. I rode here with my cycle and nothing bad has happened to it look.

(The girls, Jaden and co, and Virgil turn to his bike. Just then a truck that is carrying fireworks is driving by and in a hurry.  The truck drives really fast and the heat of the sun lights one firework. The truck swerves and the firework comes off and it lands on Virgil’s bike. It then goes off and explodes with it, destroying the bike. Everyone looks back at Virgil.)

Virgil: No one panic, its just a coincidence.

Jaden: Just stand over here for the rest of the game ok?

Virgil: But I-

(Jaden shoots him a look and Virgil sighs. Everyone goes off and leaves Virgil alone. Later the Game has been raging on.  Everyone is in the bleachers cheering and the crowds are loud. Virgil is alone away from everyone and he sits on the grass.)

Virgil: This is fan friggin tastic. I’m alone while everyone else is having a good time. Maybe I am cursed? No Virgil that would be ridiculous. Screw that. Actually, screw this, I’m gonna go and join everyone.

(Virgil rises up off the grass. Just then a bee lands on his nose.)

Virgil: Uh oh….

(A swarm of bees come on his face and Virgil spazzes out. He runs around with the bee’s all over his face. He tries to get them away. Just then a flock of birds come down and attack his head as well. Virgil tries to get them away as well. He stumbles towards where the game. Just then many stray cats come and join the attack as well.)

Virgil: Doesn’t get any worse than this….

(Virgil has now stumbled towards the soccer field. People in the crowd notice him and gasp. Drake, Jaden, Ace and Miles look alarmed. Reina has the ball with her and is about to take the shot. But Virgil stumbles in front of her and she loses the ball.  The other team takes the ball from her and one member shoots a shot which makes the goal.  The other team cheers and the ref calls the game. Half of the bleachers cheers in praise. The other half boo’s loudly.  Reina and her team looked defeated. They all glare at Virgil who is now on the floor free from the animals.)

Reina: You cost us the game???!

Virgil: Uhhhhh

Member of the team: Get him

(The girls come around Virgil and begin to kick him very rapidly. The other half of the crowd cheers now and Jaden and co wince in pain. When the girls are done, they leave in a huff and Virgil lies there hurt. Just then his face swells up and he gasp for air.)

Jaden: Oh crap, that’s right. Virgil is allergic to bee sting. Dad!

(Jaden and his dad come to the field and take Virgil of the field.  They put him in the car followed by Dina, Drake and their mother and drive off very fast. They reach the hospital where they take Virgil in. Doctors arrive quickly and give him sedated shots which allow him to breathe normally. He then passes out.)

(Virgil then wakes up in his damaged bed. Jaden, Drake and Dina look over him.)

Virgil: Uhghhh

Drake: Oh good he’s finally awake? How do you feel?

Virgil: What do you friggin think?

Dina: Well seeing as the whole school probably hates you now, I’d say pretty bad.

Jaden: You gotta do something about this curse.

Virgil: Ok at this point, I don’t care what it is, I just want to it end.

Jaden: Well how’d this start?

Virgil: Our teacher brought in this dumb doll for us to rub for good luck and I didn’t do it.

Jaden: Ok then, let me see what I can do.

(Jaden pulls out his laptop and he googles creepy dolls and bad lucks. He pops up results. He scrolls down.)

Jaden: Ah ha, here this site should do it.

(He clicks the link and he gives the laptop to Virgil. Virgil reads what it says.)

Virgil: So I just have to burn the doll. Ok that’s easy. Finally my luck is going to turn around.

(The next school day has arrived.  Everyone is chatting and doing their own thing. Just then Virgil walks through the door with Jaden and Drake. Everyone stops what they are doing and glares at him.)

Reina: Get him!

(People start to walk towards him but Virgil raises his hands.)

Virgil: Wait listen up! I know things have been pretty bad with me around but hear me out. I know a way to make this end so please just give me a chance.

(Ace walks through the crowd and comes up to Virgil.)

Ace: Yeah guys let him prove himself.

(The crowd disputes among themselves.)

Reina: Fine, lets see you do it then.

Amy: Yaaah Virgil.

(The crowd lets Virgil walk through and he walks to his teachers room. He enters the room and the teacher has the doll on his desk. Virgil takes it.)

Teacher: What the-

Virgil: Sorry but I need to do this.

(He storms out and the crowd of people follow him. Virgil walks to the field and sets the doll on the ground.)

Virgil: Behold?!

(He takes out matches and he lights them. He drops them on the doll and it burst into flames.)

Virgil: See now? I’m bad luck free.

(Just then the flames form an evil face which laughs.  It then vanishes. Everyone looks alarmed. Virgil eyes widen along with Jaden, Drake, Ace and Miles.)

Miles: Hey now, lets not worry. I mean that doesn’t mean anything. Probably

(Just then the head of the doll rises up and it grows larger. It then shrieks out and many large tentancles come out of it.)

Drake: That’s not good.

Virgil: Hey he could be nice.

(The monster smashes the ground and roars. Everyone runs away. Virgil looks up. It sends tentancles at him. He manages to punch two away but then it picks him up and throws him. He hits the ground. Virgil see’s a nearby trash can.)

Virgil: Ok, on T.V this works.

(He throws the lid like a disk but the monster smacks it down.)

Virgil: Shi-

(The monster smacks him and he hits the ground. People run away. Ace runs and then one of the tentacles hit him and he rolls around the floor.  It roars. The monster grabs Fiona, Amy, Reina, Rina and Sonia. They scream.)

Drake: Don’t worry girls, help is on the way.

Jaden: Wait.

(Drake runs towards the monster but it smacks him and he hits the wall. The monster picks up many more people. Dina helps up Drake and Jaden and Miles join her.)

Miles: How do we fight that???

(It smashes the ground and they seem taken back.  Just then Virgil comes in with a metal bat. He manages to smack away many tentacles. )

Jaden: Virgil has the right idea. Come on guys.

(Jaden and co leave. Virgil smacks the tentacles more before one takes his bat away and bends it in two. Virgil runs away but is grabbed by the leg. He holds on.  Jaden then smacks the tentacle with a golf stick and Virgil falls. He see’s Jaden and co with sports gear such as golf sticks, bats and hockey sticks.)

Virgil: Thanks but that won’t do much. I know. Keep it busy.

Ace: No wait don’t go!

(The monster roars and the group fights off the tentacles. They hold their own but then Drake is smacked on the back and he is lifted up by a tentacle. He joins Reina and co.)

Reina: Help is on the way?

Drake: At least I tried.

(Jaden and the others ward it off a little before the monster lifts them up by their legs, head and necks. It roars.)

Dina: Where the hell is Virgil?

(Virgil comes back with his sword. Tentacles come to him and he slashes them with ease.  They fall down for good. Virgil cuts them well and the monster loses tentacles. It drops the students its holding for extra weapons.  They fall down. Virgil cuts them ad he is doing well. However a tentacle comes from behind and lifts him up. It pulls Virgil close and the monster screams in his face. As it does Virgil jams the sword through its forehead and the monster falls down. It releases him as it falls and Virgil lands.  On the ground the monster turns to dust and Virgil pulls out his sword. People come up to him.)

Virgil: That was unexpected.

Amy: Virgil are you ok?

Virgil: Yeah, yeah. No need to thank me everyone.

Rina: Thank you? That monster came because of you in the first place!

Student:Yeah man, I could’ve have died!

Student: Are you insane.

(Everyone murmurs criticism.)

Virgil: But I-

Sonia: No one cares Virgil!

(Everyone walks away. Jaden and co come up to him.)

Virgil: Well this blows!

Jaden: Look on the bright side, at least you’re not cursed.

Virgil: I hope so, I went through a pile of crap for that and I just wished I could find the diamond in it.

Drake: But you showed me up, I could have been the knight in shining armor for Fiona, orRina, or Reina, or Amy, or Sonia.

Virgil: Is that all you care about? Control your thirst.

THE END.Story chapter 3:

Dina: Oh by the way Virgil, today’s Reina’s big soccer game. So today, she thinks its best that you stay away, considering your curse.

Virgil: What, she’s being ridiculous. I’m not cursed or anything. Yesterday was just a bad day. That’s all

Drake: Are you sure man? I think it safer if you just stay home.

Jaden: Yeah, I think this luck might kill you by the end of the day. Or sooner.

Virgil: I don’t need to hear this, I’m going to that game and you can’t stop me. I’m gonna go take a shower.

(Virgil heads upstairs. The sound of the shower starting is heard. Later Virgil shrieks so loud.)

Jaden: What’s wrong?

Virgil(Yelling from upstairs): THE WATER IS BURNING HOT!

(Later Jaden, Drake and Sonia prepare to enter their parents car to head to the game. Virgil shortly comes out of the door after. He heads towards his motorcycle.)

Dad: Don’t you wanna ride with us Virgil?

Virgil: Nah, I’ll get there faster on my own.

Dina: I think its safer if you come with us. What if you get in an accident?

Virgil: Ridiculous.

(Virgil starts his motorcycle and he drives off. The car soon follows after. Later they arrive at the soccer stadium where the two girl teams are getting ready. Reina is standing with Sonia, Amy, Rina and Fiona. Virgil gets off his bike while Jaden and co get out of the car. Reina see’s Virgil.)

Reina: What are you doing here?

Virgil: What? I have the right to be here. Look I’m fine now. I rode here with my cycle and nothing bad has happened to it look.

(The girls, Jaden and co, and Virgil turn to his bike. Just then a truck that is carrying fireworks is driving by and in a hurry.  The truck drives really fast and the heat of the sun lights one firework. The truck swerves and the firework comes off and it lands on Virgil’s bike. It then goes off and explodes with it, destroying the bike. Everyone looks back at Virgil.)

Virgil: No one panic, its just a coincidence.

Jaden: Just stand over here for the rest of the game ok?

Virgil: But I-

(Jaden shoots him a look and Virgil sighs. Everyone goes off and leaves Virgil alone. Later the Game has been raging on.  Everyone is in the bleachers cheering and the crowds are loud. Virgil is alone away from everyone and he sits on the grass.)

Virgil: This is fan friggin tastic. I’m alone while everyone else is having a good time. Maybe I am cursed? No Virgil that would be ridiculous. Screw that. Actually, screw this, I’m gonna go and join everyone.

(Virgil rises up off the grass. Just then a bee lands on his nose.)

Virgil: Uh oh….

(A swarm of bees come on his face and Virgil spazzes out. He runs around with the bee’s all over his face. He tries to get them away. Just then a flock of birds come down and attack his head as well. Virgil tries to get them away as well. He stumbles towards where the game. Just then many stray cats come and join the attack as well.)

Virgil: Doesn’t get any worse than this….

(Virgil has now stumbled towards the soccer field. People in the crowd notice him and gasp. Drake, Jaden, Ace and Miles look alarmed. Reina has the ball with her and is about to take the shot. But Virgil stumbles in front of her and she loses the ball.  The other team takes the ball from her and one member shoots a shot which makes the goal.  The other team cheers and the ref calls the game. Half of the bleachers cheers in praise. The other half boo’s loudly.  Reina and her team looked defeated. They all glare at Virgil who is now on the floor free from the animals.)

Reina: You cost us the game???!

Virgil: Uhhhhh

Member of the team: Get him

(The girls come around Virgil and begin to kick him very rapidly. The other half of the crowd cheers now and Jaden and co wince in pain. When the girls are done, they leave in a huff and Virgil lies there hurt. Just then his face swells up and he gasp for air.)

Jaden: Oh crap, that’s right. Virgil is allergic to bee sting. Dad!

(Jaden and his dad come to the field and take Virgil of the field.  They put him in the car followed by Dina, Drake and their mother and drive off very fast. They reach the hospital where they take Virgil in. Doctors arrive quickly and give him sedated shots which allow him to breathe normally. He then passes out.)

(Virgil then wakes up in his damaged bed. Jaden, Drake and Dina look over him.)

Virgil: Uhghhh

Drake: Oh good he’s finally awake? How do you feel?

Virgil: What do you friggin think?

Dina: Well seeing as the whole school probably hates you now, I’d say pretty bad.

Jaden: You gotta do something about this curse.

Virgil: Ok at this point, I don’t care what it is, I just want to it end.

Jaden: Well how’d this start?

Virgil: Our teacher brought in this dumb doll for us to rub for good luck and I didn’t do it.

Jaden: Ok then, let me see what I can do.

(Jaden pulls out his laptop and he googles creepy dolls and bad lucks. He pops up results. He scrolls down.)

Jaden: Ah ha, here this site should do it.

(He clicks the link and he gives the laptop to Virgil. Virgil reads what it says.)

Virgil: So I just have to burn the doll. Ok that’s easy. Finally my luck is going to turn around.

(The next school day has arrived.  Everyone is chatting and doing their own thing. Just then Virgil walks through the door with Jaden and Drake. Everyone stops what they are doing and glares at him.)

Reina: Get him!

(People start to walk towards him but Virgil raises his hands.)

Virgil: Wait listen up! I know things have been pretty bad with me around but hear me out. I know a way to make this end so please just give me a chance.

(Ace walks through the crowd and comes up to Virgil.)

Ace: Yeah guys let him prove himself.

(The crowd disputes among themselves.)

Reina: Fine, lets see you do it then.

Amy: Yaaah Virgil.

(The crowd lets Virgil walk through and he walks to his teachers room. He enters the room and the teacher has the doll on his desk. Virgil takes it.)

Teacher: What the-

Virgil: Sorry but I need to do this.

(He storms out and the crowd of people follow him. Virgil walks to the field and sets the doll on the ground.)

Virgil: Behold?!

(He takes out matches and he lights them. He drops them on the doll and it burst into flames.)

Virgil: See now? I’m bad luck free.

(Just then the flames form an evil face which laughs.  It then vanishes. Everyone looks alarmed. Virgil eyes widen along with Jaden, Drake, Ace and Miles.)

Miles: Hey now, lets not worry. I mean that doesn’t mean anything. Probably

(Just then the head of the doll rises up and it grows larger. It then shrieks out and many large tentancles come out of it.)

Drake: That’s not good.

Virgil: Hey he could be nice.

(The monster smashes the ground and roars. Everyone runs away. Virgil looks up. It sends tentancles at him. He manages to punch two away but then it picks him up and throws him. He hits the ground. Virgil see’s a nearby trash can.)

Virgil: Ok, on T.V this works.

(He throws the lid like a disk but the monster smacks it down.)

Virgil: Shi-

(The monster smacks him and he hits the ground. People run away. Ace runs and then one of the tentacles hit him and he rolls around the floor.  It roars. The monster grabs Fiona, Amy, Reina, Rina and Sonia. They scream.)

Drake: Don’t worry girls, help is on the way.

Jaden: Wait.

(Drake runs towards the monster but it smacks him and he hits the wall. The monster picks up many more people. Dina helps up Drake and Jaden and Miles join her.)

Miles: How do we fight that???

(It smashes the ground and they seem taken back.  Just then Virgil comes in with a metal bat. He manages to smack away many tentacles. )

Jaden: Virgil has the right idea. Come on guys.

(Jaden and co leave. Virgil smacks the tentacles more before one takes his bat away and bends it in two. Virgil runs away but is grabbed by the leg. He holds on.  Jaden then smacks the tentacle with a golf stick and Virgil falls. He see’s Jaden and co with sports gear such as golf sticks, bats and hockey sticks.)

Virgil: Thanks but that won’t do much. I know. Keep it busy.

Ace: No wait don’t go!

(The monster roars and the group fights off the tentacles. They hold their own but then Drake is smacked on the back and he is lifted up by a tentacle. He joins Reina and co.)

Reina: Help is on the way?

Drake: At least I tried.

(Jaden and the others ward it off a little before the monster lifts them up by their legs, head and necks. It roars.)

Dina: Where the hell is Virgil?

(Virgil comes back with his sword. Tentacles come to him and he slashes them with ease.  They fall down for good. Virgil cuts them well and the monster loses tentacles. It drops the students its holding for extra weapons.  They fall down. Virgil cuts them ad he is doing well. However a tentacle comes from behind and lifts him up. It pulls Virgil close and the monster screams in his face. As it does Virgil jams the sword through its forehead and the monster falls down. It releases him as it falls and Virgil lands.  On the ground the monster turns to dust and Virgil pulls out his sword. People come up to him.)

Virgil: That was unexpected.

Amy: Virgil are you ok?

Virgil: Yeah, yeah. No need to thank me everyone.

Rina: Thank you? That monster came because of you in the first place!

Student:Yeah man, I could’ve have died!

Student: Are you insane.

(Everyone murmurs criticism.)

Virgil: But I-

Sonia: No one cares Virgil!

(Everyone walks away. Jaden and co come up to him.)

Virgil: Well this blows!

Jaden: Look on the bright side, at least you’re not cursed.

Virgil: I hope so, I went through a pile of crap for that and I just wished I could find the diamond in it.

Drake: But you showed me up, I could have been the knight in shining armor for Fiona, or Rina, or Reina, or Amy, or Sonia.

Virgil: Is that all you care about? Control your thirst.

 

THE END.
