Alien Youth By: Corey Palmer (firstname.lastname@example.org) ALIEN YOUTH EPISODE 1 THE GAY COUPLE V.O We are now in a nation in which people are no longer judged by who we are as characters, but judged by the things that we run after such as money, popularity, and sexual appetency. It is time that we break away from these shallow grounds and explore new aspects of the world instead of being locked into a world of stereotypes. This is Alien Youth. ROLL TV SHOW THEME VIDEO FADE IN: INT. JOSH'S ROOM - NIGHT (WE SEE OUR MAIN CHARACTER JOSH SITTING AT A TABLE WRITING A LETTER WITH TEARS RUNNING DOWN HIS EYES AND HE KEEPS LOOKING UP EVERY FEW SECONDS AT A CABINET AND HAVING A LOOK THAT HE IS DISTURBED DEEPLY.) JOSH (V.O.) Why did he do this to me. He said he loved me. V.O This is my life your probably wondering how I got in this situation... I've always been hated by everyone my family, students, teachers, and everybody in the world... except... Khambrel. FADE OUT: V.O (CONT'D) This is my story. FADE IN: EXT. COURTYARD - MORNING (EVERYBODY IS HANGING OUT BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS AND WE SEE OUR MAIN CHARACTERS JOSH AND KHAMBREL HANGING OUT ON A RISEN UP BLOCK OF CEMENT SET APART FROM EVERYBODY ELSE THEY ARE HANGING OUT TOGETHER AND ARE ACTUALLY A COUPLE. THE TWO ARE HOLDING HANDS AND HAVING FUN AND TALKING ENJOYING THEMSELVES.) KHAMBREL You know out of everybody here at this school you are the most beautiful? JOSH No that's not true. KHAMBREL Why? JOSH Because you are. KHAMBREL Thats no fair you can't steal my lines. JOSH Yeah I can. (THE BELL RINGS AND THEY BOTH GET UP AND KHAMBREL KISSES JOSH'S HAND AND WALKS OFF ARMs AROUND EACH OTHER.) CROSS FADE TO: INT. MR DEMISE'S CLASS - MORNING (EVERYBODY IS SITTING DOWN WHEN MR. DEMISE WALKS IN AND WRITES ON THE BOARD HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE CLASS STARTS TO TALK CONFUSED NOT KNOWING WHATS GOING ON AND JOSH AND KHAMBREL LOOK AT EACH OTHER.) JOSH Mr. Demise what is this? MR. DEMISE This is called bellwork and recently on MTV if you guys have been watching there was a documentary on about homosexuality asking if its alright or not a lot of people are saying that no it isn't alright or yes it is alright today we are going to be debating about this but first from one person I want to know is homosexuality right or wrong? KID Yes it is because that's not how we were made we were made to be heterosexual and function and mate with woman not male and male or female and female. MR. DEMISE Okay valid point. MR. DEMISE (CONT'D) Okay now we are going to enter into a debate about it I need two volunteers to raise they're hand one against it and one for it okay josh and Nick. JOSH Sir, I don't want to... MR. DEMISE It's okay we are all friendly in here nobody is going to judge you on your comments. JOSH ... Alright. MR. DEMISE So josh where do you stand on this topic. JOSH ... Well I don't MR. DEMISE What do you mean by that? JOSH Well I think that if someone likes somebody than there shouldn't be any problem but there is though I think its selfish to like people for their body parts....you should fall in love with someone because they have a good personality, nice, kind, sweet, etc....... whether they be the same sex or not.. MR. DEMISE Okay Nick you're turn. NICK Well one it has nothing to do with body parts alot of it falls back on religion which we can't even go into but its not right if you keep on doing that kinda of stuff pretty soon the entire world will do it and the population will go down. MR. DEMISE Well how do you know that's not a good thing? NICK I just do it's bad enough as it is that when I walk down the hallways I have to see two guys making out and its gotten to the point where more kids listen to madonna than go to Sunday school. JOSH The only reason it bothers you so much is because you are homo phobic and anyway why do you care so much your not interested are you? NICK No! JOSH The united states says that I have the right to pursue happiness and if that is what I like and that it what makes me happy than I have the right to do so. MR. DEMISE Nice point see there is a lot of controversy over that and another religious problem but what is it that we could do to stop it? JOSH You don't its a part of life that people just need to deal with because it will be here forever. (JUST AS NICK TRIES TO INTERJECT THE BELL RINGS AND EVERYBODY GETS UP AND LEAVES FOR LUNCH.)

JOSH V.O It's been days since Khambrel has called me and everything out of whack. Why did he do this to me? He said he loved me and wanted to marry me. How could he spend so much time with me and not care how I feel. I'm all alone, nobody cares whether I live or die. All I ever do is cause problems for everyone. How can I get him back? That jerk doesn't know how much he means to my life and me. I don't have a life without him. How can I trust anyone? I want to say goodbye to mom, Patty & Khambrel. You are my family and mean more to me than my life. I'm sorry I have caused you so many problems and I'm sorry that I let you down because I'm gay I'm trying to watch TV but I don't know what I'm watching. It's so lonely here. I want to sleep but it just won't come. I'm so tired of hurting and being a lone. I keep thinking about the pills in the cabinet but I'm scared. My head hurts so much from crying but if I take anything for it I'm scared I won't stop and I would want to stop. I wish he would call to say everything is all right. I've lost the most important thing in my life. I'm so very tired of being alone, and making everyone miserable. I'm so cold, please do something. I can't stand this empty feeling that I'm having. My head is horrible. Stop the pounding it hurts so much. I have no control over anything in my life I can't take it anymore… Somebody do something. CROSS FADE: INT.
