                      Yeah normally they actually throw
                      stuff but I guess today they
                      don't really have anything to
                      throw.

                                FAITH
                      Great.

                      you worship the devil or
                      something?

            (FAITH SNAPS AT SHAWN AND HE JUMPS BACK.)

                                FAITH
                      No Its my unique way of
                      expressing myself and how I feel
                      and I'm not satanic!

                                SHAWN

                      never understood it though but
                      its okay because I'm not trying
                      to get put in a category.

                      Oh so how long have you Uh....

                                V.O
                      It's cool when you meet someone
                      for the first time you get a
                      weird understanding of who they
                      are or whats to come in the
                      future I got a neat feeling when
                      I met her but I kinda see Faith
                      as a friend which was cool
                      because I have no friends.

                                                                   FADE IN:

            AND A GROUP OF KIDS ARE LAUGHING AT HIM.)

                                SHAWN
                      Can you stop please.

            (THE KIDS JUST LAUGH AND DO IT AGAIN AND SHAWN TURNS AROUND AND
            JUST LOOKS AT THEM.)

                                FAITH
                      You know when you just let them
                      do that without any action
                      they're going to keep doing it.

                                SHAWN
                      I'm not stooping to they're
                      immature level.

                                FAITH
                      No I'm saying you just turn
                      around and just look at them that
                      just fuels they're fire.

                                SHAWN
                      Doesn't matter.

            (THE KIDS THROW ANOTHER BALL AND SHAWN THROWS HIS HAND INTO THE
            AIR AND TELLS THE TEACHER.)

                      Okay guys stop or I will write

            (THE TWO ARE WALKING DOWN THE HALLWAY TOGETHER TALKING.)

                                SHAWN
                      So what are you up to tonight.

                      Nothing just working on this
                      project the teacher gave us.

                                SHAWN
                      Oh... alright than I guess I'll

                                V.O
                      Deep down inside I had feelings
                      for Faith but she didn't have
                      feelings for me I could just tell
                      It kinda hurts to like somebody
                      and never be able to tell them
                      but you know hey that's my luck.
                      For the next couple of days
                      everything seemed normal except
                      one day faith didn't show up to
                      school I didn't know why.

                                                                   FADE IN:

                                SHAWN
                      NO I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
                      WOULD YOU LEAVE ME ALONE!

            (SHAWN SPEED WALKS OVER AND SLAMS THE DOOR SHUT IN HIS MOMS
            FACE.)

            FAST SHOTS OF SHAWN BEING DESTRUCTIVE AND KNOCKING THINGS OVER
            AND IT BREAKING THINGS.

                                V.O
                      I needed somewhere to go where I
                      wasn't messed with, judged just
                      somewhere to hang out and have
                      fun... or someone I needed to see
                      Faith she was the one person who
                      didn't mess with me.

                                                                  FADE OUT:

            EXT. COURTYARD LUNCH TIME - DAYS LATER

            (FAITH IS WALKING AND SITS DOWN WHERE SHE NORMALLY DOES AND
            SHAWN COMES AND SITS DOWN NEXT TO HER AND STOPS IN FEAR. HE SEES
            THE SCARS ON HER FACE AND BODY AND IS OUTRAGED.)

                                SHAWN
                      Oh my god Faith what happened to
                      you?

                                FAITH
                      Nothing just an accident.

                                SHAWN
                      I don't think an accident could
                      do this to your face.

                                FAITH
                      It's an accident leave it alone.

                                SHAWN
                      Faith...

                                FAITH
                      What

                                SHAWN
                      What happened?

            (FAITH STOPS FOR MOMENT AND HER EYES FILL UP WITH TEARS AND
            TURNS AROUND AND SCREAMS.)

                                FAITH
                      My mom hit me Ok I didn't do
                      anything wrong she just hit me
                      happy!

                                SHAWN
                      We have to tell somebody do
                      something I mean you can't just
                      sit there and let that kind of
                      stuff happen.

                                FAITH
                      NO! WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING! Doesn't
                      matter though nobody would
                      believe me anyway she would deny
                      it and hit me again if I tried to
                      tell someone.

                                SHAWN
                      How can you not tell someone if
                      you do she can go to jail she
                      wouldn't bother you anymore you
                      wouldn't have to be subjected to
                      this nobody deserves to be hurt
                      like that why did she do it?

                                FAITH
                      Because I'm Gothic and I believe
                      In things she doesn't alright its
                      fine

                                SHAWN
                      No it isn't you know what Goth is
                      to me? To me, Goth is to put on a
                      lying, smiling face pretending
                      that everything is Ok when it's
                      not.

                                FAITH
                      You don't know anything about the
                      way I feel you never could never
                      will so don't sit here and tell
                      me what I need to do when you
                      need to be worrying about finding
                      out who you are because your
                      nothing.

                                SHAWN
                      Do you think I'm nothing... not
                      even a friend even when I try to
                      help you?

                                FAITH
                      Nothing...

            (SHAWN AND FAITH SIT FOR A MOMENT AND SHAWN'S EYES WATER UP AND
            HE GETS UP AND RUNS AWAY AND FAITH CRIES AGAIN.)

                                                                  FADE OUT:

            EXT. STREET - AFTER SCHOOL

            (SHAWN IS WALKING HOME WHEN HE IS SUDDENLY STOPPED BY THIS GROUP
            OF GUYS THAT WERE MESSING WITH HIM IN THE COMPUTER LAB.)

                                BULLY #1

            (AT THIS POINT SHAWN IS SCARED AND HAS NO WHERE TO GO AND THE
            BULLY IS FURIOUS PUMPING HIMSELF UP FOR WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.)

                                SHAWN
                      Can You leave me alone please...

                      Kid has some real guts guys.

            (THE GUYS START LAUGHING AND SHAWN TRIES TO LEAVE BUT THEY PUSH
            HIM BACK INTO THE CENTER AND THE BULLY TURNS FROM SMILING TO A
            FIGHTING LOOK AND PUNCHES THE KID IN THE FACE AND THE KID FALLS
            TO THE FLOOR AND THEY LEAVE.)

                                BULLY #1 (CONT'D)
                      Snitch on me again nerd.

            (SHAWN IS LAYING ON THE GROUND MOTIONLESS HOLDING HIS FACE IN A
            CURLED UP POSITION.)

            (WE CAN HEAR SOUNDS OF THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED THAT HAVE BEEN
            VIOLENT AND BAD IN THE PAST I.E. FAITH SAYING HE WASN'T A
            FRIEND, BULLIES MESSING WITH HIM AND ETC.)

            CAMERA PULLS BACK SLOWLY.

                                                                  FADE OUT:

            INT. SHAWN'S HOUSE LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

            (NOW SHAWN IS FRANTICLY SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING GOING THROUGH
            CABINETS AND WE SEE SHAWN HAS A BLACK EYE HE FINALLY FINDS WHAT
            HE IS LOOKING FOR BUT YOU CANT SEE IT ON CAMERA.)

                                SHAWN
                      Games over...

            (WE SEE A LOOK OF TERROR AND HORROR OF WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING
            NEXT WE SEE THE ENTIRE STORY IN HIS EYES ALONE AND IN HIS BODY
            MOVEMENT WHICH IS STIFF SHAWN JUST CONTINUES TO STAND THERE
            BOBBING BACK AND FOURTH SLOWLY.)

                                V.O
                      At that point you could imagine
                      what was running through my mind
                      every little bit of my past
                      coming together as an explosion I
                      had enough of this and I'm not
                      taking crap from nobody anymore
                      if you want stuff to change you
                      have to go out and change it
                      yourself because nobody will ever
                      do a thing for you not even your
                      own friends.

                                                                  FADE OUT:

            LOOKS CONFUSED AND STARTS TO RUN TO INTO THE HOUSE.)

            (WE SEE FAITH STANDING BEFORE HER HOUSE AS AN AMBULANCE IS
            CARRYING A BODY IN A BODY BAG OUT AND FAITH STARTS TO CRY AND
            THAN ANGER FILLS HER MIND AS SHE SEES SHAWN OUR MAIN CHARACTER
            FROM EPISODE 2.)

                                FAITH
                      No... No... what did you do to my
