                      for once not be a loser but
                      things got out of hand I hung out
                      with the wrong people did the
                      wrong things and this is where my

                      This is my story.

                                                                   FADE IN:

            INT. RAFFA'S ROOM - NIGHT

            WITH HIS BEST FRIEND AND HAVING A GOOD TIME THIS IS OUR
            CHARACTER RAFFA.)

            (RAFFA'S MOM WALKS INTO THE ROOM AND HANDS THE KIDS A PIZZA AND
            KISSES RAFFA ON THE CHEEK.)

                                MOM

                      Alright thanks mom.

                                RYAN
                      Thanks Julie.

                                V.O
                      Thats my best friend Ryan We've
                      known each other ever since we
                      were in 8th grade. He's like the
                      only friend I ever had growing up
                      because I wasn't into the kind of
                      things kids do now days, but me
                      and Ryan know everything about
                      each other, were tight friends.

            (RAFFA'S MOM LEAVES AND RAFFA JUMPS UP AND DOES A VICTORY DANCE
            BECAUSE HE JUST BEAT RYAN AT NFL BLITZ.)

                                RAFFA
                      Touch down! Woop!

            (RAFFA SITS DOWN AND GRABS A SLICE OF PIZZA AND RELAXES AND SO
            DOES RYAN.)

                                RYAN
                      Now see the problem is how do we
                      save the pizza for your sister
                      when your sister isn't even here.

                                RAFFA
                      Okay foreal.

            (THE BOYS LAUGH ABOUT THAT AND GOOF OFF.)

                                RYAN
                      Hey so I got this thing from my
                      grandfather, they call it Ouija
                      board or something.

                                RAFFA
                      Oh yeah, I've heard of those,
                      it's a possess me board.

                                RYAN
                      Yeah, I brought it with me, want
                      to play it?

            (THE GUYS SMILE AND PUSH EVERYTHING ON THE FLOOR ASIDE AND PULL
            OUT THE OUIJA BOARD.)

            (MYSTIC MUSIC PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND AS THEY PULL IT OUT.)

                                RAFFA
                      Okay, ask it something?

                                RYAN
                      Yeah okay, ask it.

                                RAFFA
                      Hello...

                                RYAN
                      Is anybody there?

                                RAFFA
                      Sure it works?

                                RYAN
                      I don't know.

            (THEY SIT FOR A FEW SECONDS AND IT STARTS TO MOVE AND THAN
            NOTHING OCCURS AFTER THAT.)

                                RYAN (CONT'D)
                      Hey, it won't work, but that's
                      cool, its a piece of junk anyway.
                      I'm bouncing, got a test in the
                      morning.

                                RYAN (CONT'D)
                      Bye.

                                RAFFA
                      Yeah, see you later.

            (RYAN LEAVES AND RAFFA IS SITTING ALONE AFTER RYAN LEAVES RAFFA
            IS SITTING THERE LOOKING AT THE BOARD AND PUTS HIS HANDS ON IT.)

                                RAFFA (CONT'D)
                      Will I die soon?

            (RAFFA GETS A BIZARRE LOOK WHEN THE PLANCHET STARTS TO MOVE
            SUDDENLY IT SPELLS OUT THE WORD S O O N. SCARED FROM THE SHOCK
            HE THROWS THE STUFF OFF TO THE CORNER OF THE ROOM AND IGNORES
            IT.)

                                RAFFA (CONT'D)
                      Yeah, Piece of Junk! Doesn't work
                      anyway.

            (RAFFA PICKS UP THE PIECES AFTER THROWING IT BECAUSE HE
            REMEMBERS THAT RYAN FORGOT IT RAFFA GETS UP AND WALKS OUTSIDE
            AND GOES TO GIVE IT TO HIM.)

                                                                    CUT TO:

            EXT. RAFFA'S NEIGHBORHOOD - NIGHT

            (WE SEE RAFFA WALKING DOWN A DARK STREET NOT VERY WELL LIT AND
            WE GET THE IDEA THAT HE DOESN'T LIVE IN SUCH A SAFE
            NEIGHBORHOOD.)

                                V.O
                      I usually don't go outside after
                      dark because we live in a bad
                      neighborhood. Alot of bad things
                      happen. Sometimes, at night if I
                      listen real closely I can hear
                      people fighting. Like I remember
                      one time Ryan was walking home
                      when he got attacked by some guys
                      because they needed money for
                      drugs or something and he came
                      back and had this huge black eye
                      from where he was hit. It was
                      horrible... Thats why I don't
                      really go out at night, scared
                      that could happen to You, You
                      know?

            (AS RAFFA WALKS DOWN THE STREET HE TAKES THIS TURN AND NOTICES
            SOMETHING THAT MAKES HIM JUMP WITH FREIGHT. HE SEE'S HIS BEST
            FRIEND THAT HE THOUGHT HE KNEW HANGING WITH SOME GANGSTER KIDS
            BEATING UP SOME KIND OF LITTLE BOY. WHEN RAFFA SEE'S THIS HE
            DROPS THE BOARD AND TRIES TO WALK AWAY WHEN THE GANGSTERS SEE
            HIM AND RYAN FREAKS OUT.)

                                RYAN
                      Oh crap!

                                V.O
                      I couldn't believe it I felt like
                      my whole life in that very
                      instant crashed and broke into a
                      thousand shards of glass! Why?
                      How? Why did he do this to me? He
                      was my best friend! In that
                      moment the world shut down and I
                      was by myself.

            (RAFFA IS STANDING THERE IN SHOCK NOT SEEING WHAT IS GOING ON
            WHEN HE RUNS OVER AND PUSHES RYAN AND KNOCKS HIM OVER AND HE
            GETS UP WITH FURY ABOUT TO KNOCK THE HELL OUR OF RAFFA.)

                                RYAN
                      Go home! This doesn't concern
                      you!

                                RAFFA
                      Who are You? I don't know You
                      anymore How come I didn't know
                      about this?

                                GANGSTER #1
                      Man this punk messing with you
                      Ryan?

            (RYAN STOOD THERE FOR A MOMENT NOT SURE WHAT TO SAY AND RAFFA
            SCARED OF WHAT COULD HAPPEN NEXT WHEN RYAN GETS BOLD.)

                                RYAN
                      No he's just some loser.

                                RAFFA
                      Loser? That's it, I'm a loser to
                      you?

                                RYAN
                      Why don't you go home?

                                RAFFA
                      Why? Why don't you go home!

                                RYAN
                      I am home!

                                RAFFA
                      You think these people are your
                      friends?

                                RYAN
                      No they're my family, they help
                      me!

                                RAFFA
                      I helped you I'm your family my
                      mom was your family, not these
                      people!

                                RYAN
                      I've never had a home Raffa. I've
                      never had a family. My dad is a
                      drunk my mom is dead and my baby
                      brother... is gone the fosters
                      took him! You've just been a
                      place to hang out with place to
                      get food.

                                GANGSTER #1
                      Like A homeless shelter

            (ALL THE GANGSTER START LAUGHING AT EACH OTHER AND RAFFA'S EYES
            FILL UP WITH TEARS AND HE IS TRYING TO HIDE THEM. HE IS SHAKING
            WITH ANGER.)

            (AT THIS POINT RAFFA HAS TEARS COMING DOWN HIS EYES AND SO DOES
            RYAN FROM TELLING HIS STORY.)

                                RYAN
                      Go home Raffa to your house your
                      family, your wonderful life.

                                RAFFA
                      No I'm not going back without
                      you!

                                RYAN
                      Go home Raffa!

                                RAFFA
                      No!

            (RYAN HITS RAFFA IN THE FACE AND RAFFA PASSES OUT.)

                                                              CUT TO BLACK:

                                                                   FADE IN:

            EXT. RAFFA'S NEIGHBORHOOD - LATER

            (AFTER RAFFA GETS BACK HIS CONSCIENTIOUSNESS HE GETS UP SLOWLY
            AND IN PAIN HE FEELS HIS FACE AND SEES THAT HE HAS A BLACK EYE
            AND WALKS HOME SLOWLY.)

                                                                    CUT TO:

            INT. RAFFA'S HOUSE - LATER

            (RAFFA WALKS BACK INTO HIS HOUSE AND HIS MOM STOPS HIM SHOCKED
            BY THE HUGE BRUISE AROUND HIS EYE AND FREAKS OUT.)

                                MOM
                      Oh my gosh! Who did this to you,
                      are you okay?

            (HE GETS ANGRY AND PUSHES AWAY FROM HER AND HIS MOM IS MAD AND
            UPSET, BUT MOSTLY CONCERNED DUE TO THE FACT HER SON JUST GOT
            HURT AND NOW HE WON'T TALK TO HER.)

                                MOM (CONT'D)
                      Where are you going? We have to
                      ice that down. 

                                RAFFA
                      Mom, leave me alone...

                                                                    CUT TO:

            INT. RAFFA'S ROOM - MOMENTS LATER

            (RAFFA IS UPSET AND SITS DOWN IN FRONT OF THE BED AND JUST SITS
            THERE FOR THE VOICE OVER.)

                                V.O
                      Just like that in an instant my
                      life had changed I didn't have
                      any friends, I was alone in the
                      world... Its not fair and it
                      never will be.

                                                                  FADE OUT:

            FAST SHOTS OF KIDS WALKING DOWN HALLWAYS IN BLACK AND WHITE WITH
            A SUPER IMPOSED HALF FADED BODY OF RAFFA IN THE GROUP OF KIDS
            MOVING SLOWLY.

                                                             CROSS FADE TO:

            INT. RAFFA'S CLASSROOM - LATER THAT DAY

            (RAFFA IN CLASS AND HE NORMALLY SITS BY HIS BEST FRIEND RYAN BUT
            HE ISN'T THERE TODAY FOR SOME REASON, BUT RAFFA DOESN'T CARE, HE
            IS SITTING HEARING THE TEACHER LECTURING.)

                                MR. DEMISE
                      Alright guys today's bell work is
                      Friendship with oneself is all
                      important because without it one
                      cannot be friends with anyone
                      else in the world... What does
                      that mean Raffa?

                                RAFFA
                      Who cares what it means without
                      friends there's no point in
                      breaking down what it means
                      because there won't be anybody
                      who truly cares to listen.

                                MR. DEMISE
                      Exactly but in a different style
                      I like that, Raffa, good job.

                                RAFFA
                      What ever.

                                                                   FADE TO:

                                V.O
                      Now normally In this situation
                      you would hope I would wake up
                      because this is all a bad dream
                      but Mr. Demise was right I needed
                      friends, but the only place I
                      could find them was...

                                                                    CUT TO:

            (WE CUT TO A SHOT OF RAFFA STANDING NEXT TO THE GANGSTERS THAT
            JUMPED HIM.)

                                GANGSTER #1
                      Here... Man take this and hold it

                                RAFFA

                      No You can't be cool with us go
                      home.

            (IN THAT VERY INSTANCE RAFFA COMPLETELY CHANGED FROM BEING
            INNOCENT TO SELLING HIS SOUL FOR FRIENDS AND BECOMING CORRUPT
            RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES.)

                                RAFFA
                      No! I want to be cool with you
                      guys, even if that means I have
                      to go through you, Ryan, to get
                      it!
                      You took from me the only thing I
                      cherished, our friendship, and
                      now I want to take from you what
                      you cherish... Your Family!

                      Ooooh. Kid has some guts Fight
                      him Ryan... lets see what he's

                      I'm not fighting you Raffa.

                                RAFFA
                      Why not scared?

                                RYAN
                      No it's Personal.

                                RAFFA
                      Oh go ahead take it personal I
                      did when you stole my friend!

            (RAFFA JUMPS TO RYAN AND STARTS BEATING HIM AND KNOCKS HIM DOWN
            AND JUST KEEPS PUNCHING HIM UNTIL HE IS KNOCKED OUT AND HE HAS
            THIS EVIL LOOK IN HIS EYES.)

                                GANGSTER #1
                      Oh man, he is good. Okay, you can
                      hang with us Raffa.

                                RAFFA
                      Thanks.

            (RAFFA GETS UP OFF OF RYAN AND DUSTS HIMSELF OFF AND RYAN IS
            BLEEDING AND IS LAYING ON THE GROUND. RAFFA GIVES THE GANGSTER A
            SIGN AND RAFFA LEANS DOWN AND WHISPERS IN RYAN'S EAR.)

                                V.O
                      So it was like that... just like
                      that, I had friends again and my
                      life finally started to make more
                      sense. For a while they had me
                      doing some stuff I wasn't really
                      for, but after a while they
                      started treating me cool like an
                      equal, I liked that... But things
                      had changed alot after a while. I
                      started doing bad things I would
                      sneak out, to fight and vandalize
                      stuff, do drugs, and than come
                      home and get caught and lie to my
                      mom and cuss at her sometimes, I
                      even hit her because she wouldn't
                      stop yelling at me.

                                                                  FADE OUT:

            INT. MR. DEMISE CLASS - MORNING

            (WE SEE RAFFA SIT DOWN AND HE PUT HIS FEET UP ON A CHAIR AND
            VIBRATING IT AS A KID COMES IN EVAN HE SITS DOWN. THE KID THAT
            RAFFA'S FEET ARE VIRBATING IS THE NERD FROM EPISODE 2.)

                                SHAWN
                      Hey You're kicking my desk could
                      stop.

                      Wow, calm down, it ain't that
                      serious.

            (RAFFA COMPLETELY BLOWS THIS SHAWN OFF AND CONTINUES WITH WHAT
            WAS DOING.)

                                SHAWN
                      Yo, You're still doing it, stop!

            EVAN AND SHAWN GETS UP AND PUSHES RAFFA AND RAFFA THROWS SHAWN
            ACROSS THE CHAIR AND INTO THE WALL.)

                                MR. DEMISE.
                      Hey Stop it right now! There
                      isn't going to be any fighting in

                      Man this is bogus

            KID AND SMILES AND LEAVES.)

                                V.O
                      Now normally I would never mess
                      with someone like that on
                      purpose, but that kid seriously
                      had it coming, I mean that punk
                      tried me... still didn't seem
                      right though...

                                GANGSTER #1
                      Well that wuss is the brother to
                      one of the biggest units in our
                      city and his brother tried me so

                      cool though, we got this.

                      thing before! I had a girl friend
                      its cool.

                                                                   FADE TO:

                                RAFFA
                      So Melinda, how many
                      relationships have you been in?

                      Not many, just one or two I
                      guess, nothing super special.

                                MELINDA (CONT'D)
                      What about you?

                                                                    CUT TO:

            INT. RAFFA'S ROOM - NIGHT

            CAMERA REVEALS THAT IT IS 1:00 AM

            (WE SEE THAT OUR COUPLE IS PLAYING VIDEO GAMES AND TALKING AND
            GOOFING OFF AND HAVING LOTS OF FUN.)

            CAMERA REVEALS THAT IT IS 3:00 AM

                                RAFFA
                      Hey, having fun?

                                MELINDA
                      Yeah, I've never had this much
                      fun before!

            (Melinda YAWNS AND LOOKS AT RAFFA AND KISSES HIM AND HE KISSES
            HER BACK.)

                                RAFFA
                      That was my...

                                MELINDA
                      First kiss?

                                RAFFA
                      Yeah, It was special too.

                                MELINDA
                      Thanks I've never made any body
                      feel that way. I've always been
                      used to the do this, do that, get
                      me this, get me that, attitude
                      all my life. It makes me feel
                      good knowing that someone cares.

                                RAFFA
                      I do care.

                                MELINDA
                      Thanks.

            (RAFFA GETS UP AND GOES TO THE BATHROOM AND HE SEES THAT Melinda
            WENT TO SLEEP IN HIS BED, HE GOES BACK AND SITS DOWN AND STARTS
            RUBBING HIS HANDS THROUGH HER HAIR.)

                                RAFFA
                      Good night, Melinda.

            (THE CAMERA PULLS BACK AND RAFFA HAS A HAPPY FACE.)

                                                                  FADE OUT:

                                                                   FADE IN:

            EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD - DAY

                                V.O
                      I felt complete for the first
                      time in months like the piece of
                      the missing puzzle was found and
                      for once things couldn't get any
                      better.

            (RAFFA WALKS UP TO OUR GANGSTER AND GIVES HIM THE HAND SIGNS.)

                                RAFFA
                      Hey my main man! How is going
                      with you?

                                GANGSTER #1

                                RAFFA

                                RAFFA

                                GANGSTER #1
                      Nah never experienced it but It
                      must be something powerful. Maybe
                      I should find someone to fall in
                      love with?

                                GANGSTER #1 (CONT'D)
                      Nah....

            (RAFFA GETS UP TO LEAVE BECAUSE HE HAS A DATE WITH Melinda)

                                GANGSTER #1 (CONT'D)
                      Leaving?

                                RAFFA
                      Yeah Man, I got a date with
                      Melinda.

                                GANGSTER #1
                      Alright cool, you enjoy that tip.

                                RAFFA
                      Will Do!

            (RAFFA LEAVES AND GANGSTER PULLS OUT HIS CELL PHONE AND CALLS
            SOMEBODY.)

                                GANGSTER #1
                      ...Hey Melinda come over... I
                      don't care if you have a date
                      come over we need to talk.

                                                             CROSS FADE TO:

            INT. RAFFA'S ROOM - LATER THAT DAY

            (RAFFA IS GETTING READY WHEN HIS PHONE RINGS AND HE ANSWERS IT.)

                                RAFFA
                      Hello.

            (RAFFA UPSET HANGS THE PHONE UP AND SITS DOWN JUST TO GET BACK
            UP TO GO HANG OUT WITH GANGSTER AGAIN.)

                                RAFFA (CONT'D)
                      Thats cool, I'll just go hang
                      with my main man, yeah, its cool.

            EXT. RAFFA'S NEIGHBORHOOD - MOMENTS LATER

            (RAFFA IS WALKING UP TO HANG OUT AND HE SEES Melinda MAKING OUT
            WITH HIS FRIEND AND Melinda NOTICES HIM AND SO DOES GANGSTER AND
            GANGSTER SMILES BECAUSE HE STOLE Melinda FROM RAFFA. AND RAFFA'S
            HEART HAS BEEN TORN OUT OF HIS CHEST AND STEPPED ON.)

                                RAFFA
                      What?

                                MELINDA

                      No you ain't leaving

            (Melinda KEEPS KISSING THE GANGSTER AND RAFFA RUNS OFF TO HIS
            HOUSE.)

                                                                    CUT TO:

            INT. RAFFA'S HOUSE - MOMENTS LATER

            (RAFFA RUNS INTO HIS HOUSE AND INTO HIS ROOM WHERE HE SITS DOWN
            AND STARTS PACING REALLY FACE IN HIS SEAT AND HE BREAKS DOWN AND
            STARTS CRYING.)

            CAMERA PULLS BACK SLOWLY.

                                V.O
                      Once again I was alone...

                                                                  FADE OUT:

            EXT. RAFFA'S NEIGHBORHOOD - NEXT DAY

            (RAFFA IS WALKING WHEN HE IS STOPPED BY THE GANGSTER AND IS
            APPROACHED IN A HAPPY MANOR RAFFA IS UPSET BUT CANT' DO ANYTHING
            ABOUT IT.)

                                GANGSTER #1
                      What is good, my main man!

                                RAFFA
                      Oh you mean besides you stealing
                      Melinda? I was in love with her
                      man, why did you do that!

                                GANGSTER #1
                      BECAUSE YOU WERE IN LOVE! SHE
                      DIDN'T LOVE YOU MAN, I WAS
                      PROTECTING YOU, THATS WHAT FAMILY
                      DOES, UNDERSTAND?!

                                RAFFA
                      Yeah... I understand

                                GANGSTER #1

                      man, we need you. Remember your
                      still my main man.

                                RAFFA
                      Yeah.

            (FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE SHOW GANGSTER LEAVES HIS POST TO GO
            GET READY FOR THIS BATTLE WHICH MEANS SOMETHING SERIOUS IS GOING
            TO HAPPEN AND RAFFA SEES IS COMING BUT HE DOESN'T CARE.)

                                                                    CUT TO:

            EXT. STREET FIGHT - NIGHT 

            SHOT OF RAFFA JUST STANDING THERE BEFORE ANYBODY ELSE HAS
            ARRIVED.

                                V.O
                      You know in the beginning, I
                      thought this was all cool, but
                      it's not. It never was. I lost
                      everything, my best friend, my
                      relationship, my life, ... my
                      soul. I have to get out of this,
                      one way or another.

                                                                  FADE OUT:

            UP BEHIND HIM AND HITS EVAN AND EVAN FALLS AND GETS BACK UP AND
            HITS RAFFA AND KNOCKS HIM TO THE FLOOR AND EVERYBODY SCATTERS AS
            THEY HEAR THE SOUNDS OF POLICE SIRENS FILL THE AIR AND RAIN
            FALLS TO THE FLOOR.)

                                RAFFA
