            EXT. STREET FIGHT - NIGHT

            BEEN SEVERELY BEATEN WE NOTICED THAT IT IS OUR CHARACTER FROM
            EPISODE 7 THAT HE STANDS BEFORE. OUR CHARACTER, EVAN LOOKS UPSET
            AS IF HE HAD DONE SOMETHING WRONG WHEN POLICE SIRENS SOUND HE

                                V.O
                      This is my life your probably
                      wondering how I got in this
                      situation...  I don't like
                      hurting people nor do I find
                      pleasure in it. It happens
                      because I have to protect myself
                      and my family.

            (WE JUST GOT DONE SEEING SHOTS OF EVAN RUNNING AND BEING CAUGHT
            BY THE POLICE AND TAKEN TO JAIL FOR ASSAULT.)

                                                                  FADE OUT:

                                V.O (CONT'D)
                      It all started when I was born. I
                      was chosen from a select few in
                      my family to become the leader of
                      this organization... That would
                      lead to the destruction of
                      thousands of lives. Ever since I
                      found this out, I never wanted to
                      be a part of it, but I was forced
                      into it, otherwise the ones I
                      loved would get hurt...

                                V.O (CONT'D)
                      This is my story.

                                                                   FADE IN:

            (FAST SHOTS OF STUDENTS WALKING DOWN A HALLWAY, AND OF STUDENTS
            ACTING AND DRESSED OF A DEROGATORY STYLE.)

            (A KID IS WALKING DOWN THE HALLWAY AND OUR CAMERA SLOWS DOWN TO
            REVEAL THAT THIS IS EVAN IN HIS PRIME HE LOOKS TOTALLY INNOCENT,
            ITS HIS FIRST DAY TO HIGH SCHOOL, A FRESH START FOR HIM.)

                      Ok, 700 hallway English III?

            (As Evan walks into his hallways he bumps into a character named
            Melinda.)

                                EVAN (CONT'D)
                      Oh, I'm sorry...

                                MELINDA
                      Its okay, new here?

                                EVAN
                      Yeah, I can't find 710... Know
                      where it is?

                                MELINDA
                      Yeah right there.

            (She points to a classroom and she smiles and walks away.)

                                EVAN
                      Thanks

                                MELINDA

            AND GOES TO SIT DOWN, HE SITS DOWN BY THIS CHARACTER NAMED
            RAFFA.)

            (RAFFA IS A VERY SHADY STYLE KID WHO IS WHAT YOU WOULD CALL
            BAD.)

                      New kid, huh?

                                EVAN
                      Yeah, sort of...

            (EVAN UNSURE OF WHAT TO DO GIVES RAFFA A WASSUP SIGN AND TURNS
            BACK AROUND.)

                                MR. DEMISE
                      Okay Evan welcome to English
                      Three. I trust you will get to
                      know You're fellow classmates and
                      that We can all get along.

                                EVAN
                      Okay...

                                MR. DEMISE
                      Okay, cool, so right now Evan we
                      are studying Shakespeare and how
                      his writing shows the path of how
                      we act today, minus all the words
                      we can't understand.

            (THE TEACHER LAUGHS AND EVAN LAUGHS SYMPATHETICALLY AND UNDER
            HIS BREATHE WHEN RAFFA PUTS HIS FEET UP ON SHAWN DESK AND
            RATTLES IT ON ACCIDENT.)

                                SHAWN
                      Hey, You're kicking my desk could
                      you stop.

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

            (RAFFA COMPLETELY BLOWS SHAWN OFF AND CONTINUES WITH WHAT HE
            DOES.)

                                SHAWN
                      Yo you're still doing it, stop!

                                RAFFA
                      Shut up, Punk.

            (SHAWN GETS UP AND RAFFA TRIPS HIM AND HE FALLS RIGHT ON THE
            SIDE OF EVAN AND SHAWN GETS UP AND PUSHED RAFFA AND RAFFA THROWS
            SHAWN ACROSS THE CHAIR TO THE WALL.)

                                MR. DEMISE
                      Hey! Stop it Right! Now There
                      isn't going to be any fighting in
                      this class, do you understand.

                                RAFFA
                      Man, this is bogus

            (RAFFA WALKS OUT THE CLASS ROOM WITHOUT A CARE.)

                      Yea..

            (EVAN IS SUDDENLY INTERRUPTED BY THE DIRECTOR CALLING PLACES.)

                                DIRECTOR
                      Places! Lets go people, this
                      thing isn't going to direct
                      itself.

                                                             CROSS FADE TO:

            INT. THEATER - LATER

            (WE SEE EVAN ALL BY HIMSELF WITH ONE LIGHT SHINING DOWN ON HIM
            AS MELINDA WALKS UP TO HIM FROM BEHIND AND SITS DOWN BACK TO
            BACK.)

                                EVAN
                      Everything was perfect...

                                MELINDA
                      Why?

                                EVAN
                      Why what?

                                MELINDA
                      Why do you have to fight? You
                      don't have to...

            (EVAN CUTS MELINDA OFF)

                                EVAN
                      Because I have to.

                                MELINDA
                      You don't have to do anything!
                      Why do you want to go back to
                      that? Everything is perfect now.

                                EVAN
                      No its not perfect they hurt my
                      brother and now there is going to
                      be a war and they said if I don't
                      go, they'll hurt you and my
                      friends. I can't let that happen.

                                MELINDA
                      But you don't have to go.

                                EVAN
                      Didn't You listen to anything I
                      said?

                                MELINDA
                      Yeah but you have a choice, you
                      were given a choice...

                                EVAN
                      I can't be with you anymore
                      because if they find you than
                      they could hurt you.

                                MELINDA
                      Don't You remember the time
                      before me... the pain... is it
                      worth it?

                                EVAN
                      They hurt my family I don't want
                      them to hurt you the only way I
                      can get them to leave me alone is
                      if I fight them...

                                MELINDA 
                      I don't care I'm not scared of
                      them! I love you.

                                EVAN
                      I love you too that's why I must
                      leave.
