He walks across the lawn and hops into his GRAY ADVENTURE vehicle. Rufus starts the car up. The car runs off. RUFUS (V.O.) Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rufus Carter. I am 34 years old, single...and I've never gotten laid before. SUPER: SPY CAM INT. GALLAGHER CHILDREN'S HOUSE DAY Rufus enters through the double-doors of the school. RUFUS (V.O.) I wasn't joking there. Rufus walks through the hallway. RUFUS (V.O.) I teach Civics in Gallagher Children's House. It's an elementary school. I teach sixth grade... and like it or not, it should be my goal, a teacher's goal to teach students to be mature... so they would grow up to be mature citizens. Rufus walks past the lockers. RUFUS (V.O.) Do I qualify to be called a good citizen. A good role model in fact? I don't think so. Rufus continues walking through the hallway. RUFUS (V.O.) I'll tell you why in a minute. Rufus enters the MEN'S ROOM. INT. MEN'S ROOM DAY Rufus throws water over his face. RUFUS (V.O.) I just have to clean my face up. RUFUS (V.O.) I am a pervert. INT. CLASSROOM DAY Rufus enters. A bunch of sixth graders are seated row by row. Rufus smiles and nods at the kids. RUFUS Morning class. WHOLE CLASS (in unison) Good morning Mr. Carter. INT. LADIES ROOM It's just some ladies room. Inside a mall or something. One can't really be sure. Rufus, still 14 years old is inside one of the stalls. He sees through the wooden grills of the stall door, he sees a very pretty girl, about 17, very sexy body pass by for a second. The girl enters the STALL NEXT TO RUFUS'S. Who the fuck is this guy? RUFUS (V.O.) I've always been. I spy on girls. Spy on women. Ever since my raging hormones started kicking in, I couldn't get a girlfriend, that caused me to do things that were...extreme. A peeing sound is heard from the next stall. Rufus hears it, and he stands and crouches on top of the toilet bowl in his stall. He stands, up right and takes a peep at the stall where the nice girl is! Rufus sees the girl peeing. Sitting down. Her butt-crack very visible from her position now. Rufus, the perv's eyes widen as he sees something he's probably used to seeing. Rufus gets horny. Rufus whips out a SMALL CAMERA! He clicks a button. TCCCHK. A picture is taken. Rufus keeps away the camera. The girl continues peeing. RUFUS (V.O.) I don't just limit myself to bathrooms. I've gone to other places. Girls naked, not knowing that I WAS there The girl begins to wipe. CUT BACK TO: INT. CLASSROOM DAY Rufus picks up a chalk from the blackboard and starts with his lesson. RUFUS Where were we yesterday, class? INT. HALLWAY DAY Rufus meets someone, who greets him casually. ZEUS SLATER. About the same age as Rufus. Also a teacher. RUFUS (V.O.) That's Zeus. My best friend. We've been friends since childhood. And he knows all about ME. He knows the things I do. And you know whay, I'm a lucky guy. Zeus begins talking to Rufus. ZEUS So, Lara's gonna give you those pens, later, Rufus? RUFUS Yeah, later. ZEUS Need any help with the, Genghis Khan crap? Rufus shrugs. RUFUS Genghis Khan. Genghis Khan. Nope. Don't need any help. ZEUS All right then. Rufus and Zeus part ways. Zeus enters ANOTHER ROOM. Probably a classroom. RUFUS (V.O.) You know why I'm a lucky guy? EXT. GALLAGHER CAMPUS LATE DAY Rufus exits through the double doors. Rufus walks through the concrete passage that's in between the grass playground. Some third graders are running around the grass. One of the third graders, a boy trips. RUFUS Hey, CAREFUL THERE! RUFUS (V.O.) It's because...if Zeus would turn me in. Reveal all about myself to the principal. I'd be a bum right now. I'd have no job... Rufus steps into his Adventure. RUFUS (V.O.) I have no intentions of changing. My ways. They will always be what I do. For fun. RUFUS (V.O.) Will I ever get married? Rufus starts the car up. The car takes off and runs at average speed. RUFUS (V.O.) I don't know. RUFUS (V.O.) I said that I skipped sex. INT. ADVENTURE Rufus drives. RUFUS (V.O.) But I don't see anything to regret. I'm still 34. Plenty of time to be resourceful... I might just hit on a girl I really like. Problem is, do I have to REVEAL what I do to her. Or will she find out? RUFUS (V.O.) Was I always meant to be like this? I really don't know. EXT. CW WHITE HIGH DAY It's a high school building. A WOMAN, about 28, also a teacher gets out of the building as the SCHOOLBELL assaults everyone's ears. Not hers though, she's very relaxed. She's KRISTIN WELLING. RUFUS (V.O.) And I like that girl. That woman. Kristin Welling. Kristin walks through a passage and then to the sidewalk. RUFUS (V.O.) Do you know who she is? RUFUS (V.O.) I think not. She's the woman I dream of every day, every night. I truly am in love with her. I don't visualize her lustfully. Or think bad things about her... and will she become a victim of my schemes? Not in this world. I wouldn't pull any of my perverted bullshit on her no matter how skilled I am. I'm not bragging. I AM skilled. INT. LADIES ROOM Rufus, now about 19 enters the ladies room. Sneaks into a stall. RUFUS (V.O.) They say practice makes perfect. CUT TO: EXT. RUFUS'S LAWN LATE DAY Rufus gets off his Adventure. Rufus walks towards his house. RUFUS (V.O.) Well, I've been practicing since I was a kid. INT. COFFEE SHOP NIGHT Rufus and Zeus are in a coffee shop. Only Zeus is having the coffee. Both of them are having a little chat. RUFUS I like her, Zeus. ZEUS Does she know about this? RUFUS (laughs) How the fuck could she know? NO. But I want her to... ZEUS So tell her. RUFUS I can't! ZEUS Tell her! RUFUS I just can't. ZEUS What does she teach? RUFUS Math. ZEUS You can't talk to her, yet you know that! RUFUS I asked somebody. ZEUS Who? RUFUS Somebody. ZEUS Does that somebody know that you like Kristin Welling? CUT TO: A CAMERA'S POV, The camera is digital, it can easily be distinguished because of the YELLOW CROSS that can be seen in it's POV. The camera is focused on a YOUNG WOMAN, about 27, very pretty. The woman is wearing a blouse, and some short, white pants. The woman fixes her hair in a dresser. The camera ZOOMS OUT and reveals that the woman is inside a ONE-STORY HOUSE, much like Rufus's. The woman is in her bedroom. The bedroom is nicely cleaned up, everything is organized. The woman continues fixing her hair. RUFUS (O.S.) Come on. Come on. The woman stands up. RUFUS (O.S.) Oh, yeah baby, do it for me, baby. The woman yawns as she stretches her right arm. She is facing the camera now. But she doesn't know it. From the POV, it looks as if Rufus is ... about 45 meters away from his mark. How the fuck can this guy sleep at night when he does these things all the time? RUFUS (O.S.) Come on, what's taking you so long? The woman begins to undress. She takes off her pants first. Revealing her blue panty. TCCHK! Rufus takes a snapshot. RUFUS (O.S.) Yeah, baby, that's what I'm talking about! Rufus takes another shot. RUFUS (O.S.) Come on! The woman begins taking off her blouse. RUFUS (O.S.) YEAH! Rufus takes a snapshot yet again. RUFUS (O.S.) (sotto) It's time to go to my emergency jacking room. PRINCIPAL (V.O.) MR. CARTER!!!!!!!!!!!! INT. PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE DAY The PRINCIPAL is about 69 years old. He has a thin beard, he looks tough, and though he's old he still manages to play it rough on everybody. He's pretty fat too. The principal is seated behind his desk. Rufus stands in front of him. The principal looks very angry. PRINCIPAL What were you thinking?!!! The principal's face turns angry red. PRINCIPAL Have you lost your sanity? RUFUS Sir, I was just. PRINCIPAL Just doing, what? RUFUS Sir--- PRINCIPAL What in the hell were you thinking, Carter? RUFUS Sir, allow me to speak--- PRINCIPAL No, I will not allow you to speak. What you just displayed in front of Bonnie Adams, a Gallagher student who looks up to you was juvenile! Immature! How old are you, Rufus? RUFUS I'm 34. But I trust you already know that. You didn't have to ask--- PRINCIPAL Don't you talk to me like that, Rufus! RUFUS Well, how the fuck should I talk to you, sir??? PRINCIPAL (more calm this time) And I guess you relay the messages of what are in your books, your lessons using strong language, isn't that right, Rufus? RUFUS I'm sorry sir. No. I do not use strong language in any of my discussions. With my class. PRINCIPAL Do you realize that I could terminate you for the way you just behaved in front of me, Mr. Carter? RUFUS Yes sir. PRINCIPAL You told Bonnie Adams, quote "not to give a shit if the American President becomes a dictator" in front of the whole class? RUFUS Yes, sir. PRINCIPAL What was that for? RUFUS Nothing sir. PRINCIPAL Was there a need to use vulgar language? RUFUS No sir. PRINCIPAL But you have already done it. You displayed some vile and immature behavior in front of your class. RUFUS I did it just to humor--- PRINCIPAL GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!! AND I DON'T EVER WANNA HEAR ABOUT YOU BE----- CUT TO: INT. MEN'S ROOM DAY Rufus and Zeus are leaning against the sink. Rufus looks somewhat disappointed and put down. RUFUS Fat fuck. ZEUS Cheer up, Rufus. RUFUS I won't. ZEUS Lighten up, it could have been worse. RUFUS What? ZEUS Never mind. RUFUS What did you--- ZEUS Try to hold yourself back next time, huh? How about it? This isn't the first time you got caught up with some shit with the principal like this, and--- RUFUS Nah. Nah. Forget it. Rufus pulls something out of his pocket. About 12 pictures, the snapshots he took last night! The woman undressing. He hands them to Zeus. ZEUS What the fuck is this? RUFUS Last night. ZEUS Whoa! Zeus looks at each of the pictures. ZEUS Holy shit! Zeus gets a little nervous and starts to sweat. Rufus just shrugs. RUFUS My latest masterpiece. ZEUS Shit, man! RUFUS What's wrong? Zeus's face tightens. It's as though there's something he wants to spit out, but he just can't. He can't get some words out out his mouth. He's used to Rufus handing him pictures like this, but now... RUFUS Zeus? Zeus just shakes his head, somewhat disapprovingly. Zeus hands the pics to Rufus. Rufus slips the pictures into his coat pocket. RUFUS Marvelous, right? ZEUS Yeah. Zeus shakes his head even more. ZEUS You really are a serious nutcase, Rufus. RUFUS Tell me about it. They walk OUT OF THE MEN'S ROOM And into THE HALLWAY They walk through the hallway. RUFUS So, how are you with your--- ZEUS What? RUFUS You know. Your stuff. ZEUS Oh, the cartooning? RUFUS Yeah. ZEUS I animate my drawings. Make up my own voices for some of the characters. My cartoon films are on VHS. You wanna see some of them? Come on, I take a look at the "art" you do, man. See some of mine. RUFUS Sure. I'll find the time. ZEUS Hope so. RUFUS That's great. You're multi-talented. Maybe you can quit this job and you know--- work for Disney, Warner Brothers? ZEUS Nah. INT. RUFUS'S HOUSE, LIVING ROOM LATE DAY Rufus stands in front of a bureau drawer. On top of it is a TELEPHONE. Rufus slips the pics he took last night inside. They're 12 pictures, and as far as he's concerned. They're safe where they are. Rufus walks towards his front door. He gets out of the house. EXT. LAWN LATE DAY Rufus gets inside his Adventure. He starts it up. Drives the vehicle. INT. RUFUS'S HOUSE, LIVING ROOM NIGHT The front door opens. Rufus gets in. He's just arrived from wherever the hell he has been. TIME CUT: Rufus sits on the couch. Watching T.V. In front of him is a bowl of potato chips. Rufus grabs hold of the remote and changes the channel. Rufus continues to watch TV. Finally Rufus gets bored. He turns off the TV. The telephone rings. Rufus picks up the receiver. RUFUS Hello. A man with a dark, sadistic sinister voice begins to speak. MAN Nothing nice on television? Rufus's eyes widen. He gets up, still holding the receiver and looks out the WINDOW. RUFUS'S POV, It's all dark. He can't see past his lawn. Heck he can't see past the glass on his window. RUFUS Who the fuck is this? MAN Don't talk to me like that again. A long pause. Rufus frowns. MAN Call me Mr. Bolton. Or simply Bolton. RUFUS What do you want? BOLTON What you want. Rufus suddenly gets a confused look on his face. RUFUS What--- you want, what I want? BOLTON Yes. Some thoughts come to Rufus's head. Who the fuck is this Bolton guy? He doesn't recognize the voice. It's someone he's never heard of or he's never known in his life. It couldn't be the Principal, Zeus, or any asshole... Rufus takes a deep breath. RUFUS You want what I want. BOLTON I know all about you, Rufus. I know how horny you get everytime you---- RUFUS Hold it, who the fuck--- BOLTON I told you not to talk to me like that. RUFUS Sorry. WHO. ARE. YOU. BOLTON Like I've told you before, call me Mr. Bolton. RUFUS All right, Mr. Bolton, let's play it straight I--- BOLTON That was naughty of you last night, Rufus. RUFUS What? How the fuck do you know--- BOLTON You should keep watch of your valuables some more. You're kind of careless. If you take a look at your bureau drawer--- Rufus bends slightly and opens up the drawer under where the telephone sits. The 12 pictures are missing! RUFUS Where the fuck are my pictures! BOLTON Calm down, Rufus. RUFUS There were more than just 12 pictures in this drawer... pictures I've taken long--- BOLTON Calm down. You're not gonna get them back. RUFUS Oh fuck. BOLTON Relax. RUFUS What do you want?! BOLTON Pay attention. RUFUS Yeah, sure I am paying fucking attention. BOLTON I'm gonna let you do something. Something that you probably want to do... but ultimately can't. RUFUS What can I do? Do you want money--- I'm broke--- BOLTON Fuck money. I want something else. RUFUS What is it then? Rufus, still in shock slowly sits down on the couch. BOLTON I'm giving you nine days. RUFUS Nine days to do what? BOLTON To take fifty nice, graphic, nude pictures of somebody. RUFUS Who? Your girfriend? BOLTON Fuck you. BLAM! The wall to the window at the far end of the living room shatters! Someone's outside and that someone has a gun! RUFUS HEY! HEY! HEY! Don't start shooting me now--- we can work this out, we- -- BOLTON Kristin Welling. A long pause. Rufus's eyes widen in shock. Kristin Welling is the woman he wants! RUFUS (asking just to be sure) Who? BOLTON Kristin Welling. RUFUS All right. Rufus's face tightens. He starts to get sweaty. BOLTON I want to see her tits. Her cunt. I want you to get butt-fucking ass shots, everything and anything that's graphic. Fifty different pictures. Multiple angles if possible. And you don't want to disappoint me. RUFUS Oh yeah? Why not? BOLTON You'll die on the in ten days if you disappoint me. I want what you want... remember? RUFUS No, no I don't want this. Rufus gets up. He tries to edge a BIT closer to the shattered window. RUFUS'S POV, He can't see a thing. BOLTON Tell me something. RUFUS What? BOLTON Do you want to get a good look at me. I'm right outside your house. RUFUS Yes. BOLTON Don't even try. Losing your life right now would suck than to lose in ten days from now... RUFUS Shit. Rufus steps forward anyway. BOLTON Back up, Rufus. Rufus continues to step closer and closer to the window... THEN HIS WALL STARTS TO EXPLODE! RUFUS INSTINCTIVELY DROPS TO THE FLOOR AND DUCKS HIS HEAD! BULLETS FIRED IN RAPID-FIRE FASHION ARE STARTING TO ASSAULT HIS HOUSE! BOLTON'S RIGHT OUTSIDE THE HOUSE! THE REPORT COMING FROM WHATEVER MACHINE GUN BOLTON IS HOLDING DEFEANS RUFUS. THE RECEIVER DROPS TO THE FLOOR. THE TELEPHONE DROPS AS RUFUS BEGINS CRAWLING TOWARDS THE KITCHEN. THEN THE GUNFIRE STOPS. Rufus turns sideways, now lying flat, he holds the receiver and puts it on his ear. RUFUS There's no need for this. BOLTON If you tell the cops. I'll expose you. Remember Rufus, I have your pictures. I have the upper hand. And let's get something straight. RUFUS What is that? BOLTON I didn't call you. The police will interrogate you tomorrow or later on. Tell them you don't know shit. RUFUS Okay. That won't be a problem. BOLTON Before I go. Know this. RUFUS What--- BOLTON Your neighbors are dead. The line goes dead. Rufus replaces the receiver to the telephone, which is still lying on the floor, with him. EXT. RUFUS'S LAWN DAY SUPER: DAY 1 A POLICE OFFICER stands in front of Rufus carrying a notepad. Yellow tape surrounds the two houses in to the left and to the right of Rufus's bungalow. Ambulances are in front of both of the houses. Jesus, what happened last night? The officer's name is ZIMMER. ZIMMER The name's Zimmer. Doug Zimmer. RUFUS Yeah, how do you do Office Zimmer. ZIMMER So tell me what you can tell me, Mr. Carter. RUFUS Some lunatic with a machine gun started shooting down my house... ZIMMER And the houses of both your neighbors. Rufus tenses. He's not taking this very well. RUFUS Yes, Officer. ZIMMER Sir, you might have any idea as to who the perpetrator was? RUFUS I--- Rufus frowns. He's not sure if he wants to--- RUFUS I don't have a clue. ZIMMER Where were you during the incident? RUFUS Crawling, trying to protect myself on the living room floor. ZIMMER I--- RUFUS Sir, I'm really late for work and I--- Zimmer nods. ZIMMER Oh yes, I don't want to bother you. RUFUS I wish I could give you more... ZIMMER No problem. Zimmer turns around and starts towards the POLICE CAR that is parked up just in front of Rufus's Adventure. Zimmer stops. He turns to Rufus. At least for the last time now. ZIMMER Sir? RUFUS Yes officer. ZIMMER All your neighbors are dead. Fuck. Just with the mere mention of that, Rufus breaks a sweat on his forehead. Rufus takes a deep breath and slowly nods in acknowledgement. RUFUS (sotto) I know. INT. MEN'S ROOM DAY The same Men's Room on Gallagher campus. Like before, Rufus and Zeus are leaning against the sink, having a regular friendly chat. ZEUS How much time did he give you? RUFUS Nine fucking days. ZEUS Nine days? RUFUS Yes. ZEUS Well, that's a lot of time. RUFUS A lot of time? FUCK. ZEUS What's wrong, you've been doing your shit since childhood why can't you pull this off right now? RUFUS Do I want to? ZEUS You have to... RUFUS I don't want to... ZEUS What? RUFUS I have ... feelings for the girl. ZEUS Kristin. RUFUS Yes. Kristin. ZEUS But it's your life at stake, Rufus... Rufus rubs his temples. Rufus lets out a sigh. RUFUS Why the fuck have I gotten myself into something just because of a... ZEUS Hobby. RUFUS If it was somebody else... I might easily do it. ZEUS Think of the woman as somebody else. RUFUS Look. Even if she was somebody else--- ZEUS What? RUFUS Well--- ZEUS What if she was somebody else? RUFUS Fifty clear, graphic pictures? ZEUS Yeah. You can do it man. RUFUS No fucking way. INT. HALLWAY EARLY AFTERNOON Zeus exits a classroom. Rufus is walking towards the classroom, or at least is gonna pass by it. Rufus bumps into Zeus--- RUFUS Got a minute? ZEUS Thirty. I'm done with my class. RUFUS (hushed) Step this way for a minute. Rufus gestures to a spot a tad farther from the classroom Zeus just got out from. They step and stand still on that spot. ZEUS What is it? RUFUS Will I do this thing? ZEUS What the fuck? You're--- RUFUS I'm neurotic here, Zeus help me out... ZEUS What the fuck do you want? RUFUS How the fuck am I supposed to know where she lives? ZEUS You idiot! Follow her. RUFUS Are you crazy? ZEUS FUCK. RUFUS If she finds out that I'm following her--- ZEUS She'll slap your face when you try to hit on her. If ever you do. If you'll excuse me... Zeus makes an attempt to get out of Rufus's way and to go to wherever the hell he's headed. RUFUS Zeus. I'm caught up in something that--- ZEUS Look, use a phone book! RUFUS Fuck, why didn't I think of that? EXT. SIDEWALK DAY Rufus is walking towards his Adventure. Just meters away from him is a familiar face! SOMEONE HE KNOWS. Zeus's eyes widen and he wears a tiny grin as he sees that man. The man is DAMON SMITS. Damon smiles too. Both of them walk towards each other. Shake hands. Damon is African-American. About Rufus's age. DAMON How are you, dog? RUFUS I'm fine Damon. DAMON Fuck, I never expected to run into you... RUFUS I'm working here! Gallagher School. DAMON Shit? You really did become a teacher! You passed! RUFUS What are you doing in this city? DAMON Nah. I'm having a... leave of absense. Hate my fucking job. Rufus laughs. RUFUS Me too. DAMON Right. RUFUS You got a place to stay? DAMON I have a place. I'm renting an apartment room. RUFUS An apartment? DAMON For as long as I'm here. RUFUS You want a lift? DAMON Nah. I--- RUFUS Come on, I can offer you--- DAMON Just as long as it won't--- RUFUS It's no problem. DAMON Sure. But--- RUFUS COME ON. Trust me. Where you staying? DAMON Forty-third. RUFUS Oh! INT. ADVENTURE Rufus is driving his adventure. Damon seated in the passenger seat. Rufus starts to sweat and get nervous. RUFUS Listen up I got a big fucking problem, Damon. DAMON What's up? RUFUS A guy called me. Telling me to take fifty pictures. Voyeuristic shots of somebody naked. It's my life if I don't deliver in nine days. DAMON Some prank. RUFUS He shot my house up. My neighbors are dead. I don't know how the bastard managed to ... keep me alive. DAMON What? RUFUS I ain't kidding, Damon. Suddenly, Damon's in shock. DAMON I hear you, dog... RUFUS I don't know how I'm gonna do it... he also told me not to tell... DAMON That's okay. Your secret's safe with me. RUFUS And with Zeus. DAMON Who? RUFUS My friend. DAMON Oh. RUFUS Some cop showed up at my door... told me that he'll stay in touch. I don't know--- DAMON RIGHT HERE. Rufus pulls over. Through the window, Rufus can clearly see the APARTMENT BUILDING where Damon stays. DAMON Look, nigga, you call me every now and again, okay? I'll help you out... RUFUS If you can. Damon gets off the vehicle. DAMON I will. Thanks for the ride! RUFUS I said it's no problem. Damon closes the door of the passenger seat. Rufus takes off with his vehicle. DAMON Remains standing in the sidewalk. Still in shock and astonishment. INT. LIVING ROOM NIGHT Rufus sits on his couch. The wall behind him is still damaged. The window, covered by a big rectangular piece of cloth. A telephone directory rests on Rufus's lap. Rufus picks up the receiver. Dials a number. RUFUS Hello? Beat. RUFUS Welling residence? Rufus nods his head. RUFUS Is there a Kristin Welling, sir? Rufus shakes his head in disappointment. RUFUS Okay. Thank you. Rufus hangs up. TIME CUT: Rufus holding the receiver on his ear again. RUFUS No Kristin? TIME CUT: Rufus doing the same thing. RUFUS A KRISTIN Welling. Rufus shrugs. RUFUS Yes. Kristin. Rufus frowns. RUFUS No? TIME CUT: Rufus flipping through the pages of the phone book. RUFUS Fuck. Rufus picks up the receiver. Once again. He dials. RUFUS Hello? Rufus takes a deep breath. RUFUS Yeah. Good evening. A pause. Rufus frowns. RUFUS Actually, I'm looking for a Kristin Welling, do you happen to know a Kristin--- RUFUS No? Okay. Rufus hangs up. EXT. SIDEWALK DAY SUPER: DAY 2 Rufus is leaning against the side of the hood of his Adventure. He's in front of the school now. Rufus talks to Zeus. RUFUS No luck. ZEUS What? RUFUS I couldn't find her name on a phone book. ZEUS Follow her. RUFUS What? ZEUS Follow--- RUFUS I said no fucking way. Rufus sighs. RUFUS No fucking way I'm doing that. ZEUS Look, it shouldn't be too hard--- I --- RUFUS I won't. ZEUS All right. All right. RUFUS But if I do know where she lives, how the fuck am I gonna do it? ZEUS You know. Plant your fucking spy cams. Like you always do. You've done it a million fucking times. RUFUS I sure hope she lives in a one story house. ZEUS What? RUFUS Remember the pictures I let you see about 2 days ago. ZEUS So--- RUFUS One story house. Bungalow... if it's not. I'm totally screwed. ZEUS Why? RUFUS WAKE UP. I'm gonna have to be standing in a building across to get those pics! ZEUS It's your problem man. Don't get me into this shit. A long pause. They just stand in front of each other. They stay like that for a long time. ZEUS So? RUFUS I don't know, man. ZEUS I got a really neat idea. RUFUS What? ZEUS It wouldn't have to be that way. RUFUS What? ZEUS You know, introduce yourself to the girl. Tell her you're a photographer. Take her pictures. And alter them in your PC. You know, cut and paste, Paint Shop Pro. Hello! RUFUS You're fucking crazy. ZEUS WHAT?! RUFUS It would be too obvious if I do that, besides I don't have a printer or any equipment to do that and if I have it done by somebody else. Either way I'm fucked. ZEUS You on your own, Rufus. RUFUS If he isn't happy in nine days, he'll kill me. ZEUS Come on, just go to the cops. RUFUS I can't. He burglarized my fucking house. He'll turn me in before I can even--- ZEUS Wait, how could he know? RUFUS He's always watching. ZEUS How do you know that? RUFUS Heck, he's probably watching me now. He's somewhere... This Mr. Bolton. ZEUS All I gotta say is that he's probably as fucked up as you are. RUFUS I'm gonna be doing something tonight. ZEUS What? RUFUS I'll be practicing. ZEUS Practicing what? RUFUS Watching the neighbors across my house. Taking their pictures, fucking with their privacy. Maybe I'll be confident. I'll go through with what the bastard wants, and he'll leave me alone. Forever... ZEUS Yeah, terrific. RUFUS Help me out, Zeus. ZEUS What? The SCHOOL BELL RINGS. RUFUS Help me out if you have any ideas. Zeus and Rufus begin walking towards the school. ZEUS I'm not supposed to help you, man. I'm not part of this! RUFUS Look, just--- EXT. SIDEWALK NIGHT Rufus walks through the sidewalk. He's alone. Where the fuck has he just been? He probably ate dinner in some restaurant, right here. Downtown. Rufus continues to walk. He looks straight. Not up, not down, not behind, not sideways. RUFUS'S POV, His Adventure is just a couple of meters ahead. SUPER: DAY 3 Rufus's cel begins to ring. He digs into his pocket. Picks it up and takes the call. RUFUS Yeah? BOLTON Look what's in front of you Rufus. Rufus looks what's in front of his leg --- a dead body! He knows this kid--- RUFUS You fuck, this is Vorhees--- BOLTON Henderson. RUFUS WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT?! BOLTON Just relax. I just wanted to show you what would happen to you if you disappointed me on Day nine. That's only four days away, Rufus. RUFUS You son of a bitch! You killed a kid. He didn't do you any harm. BOLTON I say this again and again, don't talk to me like that, Rufus. Rufus bends down. He studies the kid's corpse cautiously. Curiously. RUFUS (sotto) What the fuck is it with you? BOLTON Do you hear me Rufus? RUFUS Yes. I fucking here you. BOLTON Can you fucking cut down with your profanity? RUFUS What did you do to him? RUFUS'S POV, He sees a lot of blood pouring out of Vorhees's chest. The kid's eyes are wide open. Rufus makes a move to touch the kid's chest but hesitates. BOLTON I put a knife through his chest. He died very slowly, Rufus. RUFUS You crazy fuck! BOLTON Crazy? We're both crazy, Rufus. Why else would I be asking for those pictures. Why else would you have the will to be taking them? RUFUS I don't have the will to--- BOLTON Oh, yes you do. You just deny it. RUFUS Fuck you. BOLTON How many times a day do you jack off to Kristin Welling, Rufus? RUFUS Fuck that. BOLTON Three times, I presume? Breakfast. Lunch. And dinner. Bolton laughs. Rufus shuts the kid's eyelids with his hands. BOLTON That's smart of you Rufus. RUFUS What? BOLTON Now your finger prints are on the kid's eyelids. Right about now, a hair strand would give all the evidence away. You killed Vorhees Henderson. RUFUS Fuck that. BOLTON Wipe it out. RUFUS What? BOLTON Get a fucking hanky! Rufus pulls out a handkerchief from his pocket. Rufus rubs the hanky slightly on the kid's eyelids, which he has touched earlier. RUFUS So you're gonna put a knife through my fucking chest on Day nine? BOLTON Only if you disappoint me. RUFUS I'll go to the cops. BOLTON You have a choice, Rufus. RUFUS Yeah. BOLTON But before you could get back to Officer Zimmer, your pictures will already be in his hands. Your fingerprints. And you'll be arrested. RUFUS On what grounds?! ON WHAT FUCKING GROUNDS, HUH??! BOLTON For being a perverted asshole. RUFUS Leave me alone! BOLTON Think of it as a business proposal. Nine days or it's your life. RUFUS So this is like extortion, huh? A stickup. BOLTON It's more than that. And I will kill you if you tell anyone about the corpse in front of you now. Rufus makes an attempt to get up--- But his right hand accidentally touches part of the kid's chest. Blood is all over his right palm. RUFUS Oh fuck. BOLTON See 'ya when I see 'ya. Bolton hangs up. Rufus keeps the cel on his pocket. He stares at his right palm momentarily. RUFUS Fuck it. INT. MEN'S ROOM DAY SUPER: DAY 4 Rufus and Zeus inside the Men's Room. As usual, leaning against the sink and having a little chat. RUFUS He fucking called me again last night. ZEUS Oh? Zeus nods. ZEUS This Mr. Bolton? RUFUS Who the fuck else? ZEUS What did he say? RUFUS He--- A long pause. Rufus frowns. A little nervous to spit it out. ZEUS What did he say, Rufus? RUFUS He... Zeus just stares at Rufus coldly. He squints "Rufus??" RUFUS He was... Rufus coughs. He's rather nervous. ZEUS What did he say? RUFUS I was downtown last night. Eating at a restaurant. I was on my way to the car. And I found the body of Vorhees Henderson. Zeus suddenly gets a confused look on his face. ZEUS What? RUFUS The bastard stabbed the kid on the chest. His body is still on that sidewalk. Chances are, the cops have already gotten to it. ZEUS So--- RUFUS He told me I'd end up like that kid if I disappoint him on Day nine. ZEUS What the fuck is it with him? RUFUS He wants the pictures so badly... he's probably in love with Kristin Welling also. ZEUS Just like you? RUFUS No. Not like me. He's a nutcase! ZEUS So are you, Rufus. RUFUS Maybe I'm not anymore. ZEUS You still are. When all this is over, when you don't have to be afraid of anything, it will all come back to you. You'll be your old self again. RUFUS I won't. EXT. SIDEWALK LATE DAY The sidewalk just outside Gallagher Campus. Rufus is taking a stride towards his Adventure. ZEUS Yo, Rufus! I have a suggestion. RUFUS What? A pause. Zeus shakes his head. ZEUS Nah. You might not like it. RUFUS What? ZEUS Follow her. RUFUS What? ZEUS Follow her. When you know where she lives, break into her house. Plant those cameras of yours. And it's a done deal. RUFUS You think I'm crazy? ZEUS Hey, you've done it before, right? RUFUS I've done it in ladies rooms! ZEUS Does it make a difference? RUFUS Of course, it makes a difference! ZEUS What do you--- RUFUS Sneaking into the girls room is a whole lot easier than sneaking into somebody's house! ZEUS I see. Rufus steps into his Adventure. Rufus takes off. Zeus waves casually. INT. ADVENTURE EARLY AFTERNOON Rufus parks at a curb just across CW White High. RUFUS'S POV, He can see a lot of teenagers walking in and out of the campus. But no signs of Kristin Welling. RUFUS Come on, Kristin. Where are you. Rufus continues to scan the area. LEFT AND RIGHT with his eyes. RUFUS Fuck. A long moment goes by. Still, no Kristin Welling walking out of the building. She must be really busy today. RUFUS What's taking you so long. Rufus coughs. Takes a deep breath. TIME CUT: Several minutes have passed. Rufus still seated in the vehicle, looking at what's in front, left and right... RUFUS Come on. Come on. FINALLY! The very beautiful Kristin Welling walks out of the campus. Kristin signals for a cab. The cab pulls up. Kristin steps in. This is the moment Rufus has been waiting for. The cab takes off, and goes in a forward direction. Rufus starts his own vehicle up and follows the cab closely. RUFUS Take me to your place, Kristin. Rufus continues to drive. Carefully following the cab. The streets are crowded with cars. People anxious to go home. This works to Rufus's advantage. He wouldn't want to let the cab driver or Kristin herself know that he's following them. EXT. AN APARTMENT BUILDING LATE DAY The cab pulls up in front of a BROWNSTONE. Kristin steps out of the car. Kristin hands the cab driver a bill. KRISTIN Thank you! The cab takes off. Kristin walks into the brownstone. RUFUS'S POV FROM INSIDE THE CAR: He sees Kristin slowly walking up the steps towards the apartment building. At last! INT. ADVENTURE Rufus takes a deep breath. RUFUS (sotto) Oh yeah. Seventy fourth. Gotcha. Rufus waits. And waits. Three minutes pass by. Rufus finally steps out of the vehicle. EXT. STREET He goes from the street to the apartment building! What the fuck is he doing?? INT. APARTMENT BUILDING Rufus enters the foyer. He sees SHADOWS OF SOMEBODY'S WALKING UP THE STAIRS. It took her this long to go up the stairs? Rufus steps closer to the staircase. He walks up five to six steps. He sees Kristin. Now about to reach the second story of the apartment building. RUFUS (whispering) Shit. Rufus coughs. He proceeds up the stairs. He reaches the end of the staircase leading to the third story of the apartment building. He sees the shadow of Kristin moving. A pause. Rufus sweats. He starts to get nervous. RUFUS Fuck. Rufus takes a deep breath. INT. THIRD STORY The third story of the apartment building. Rufus just emerges from the stairs. He sees a door close. Room 215. It's Kristin's apartment room! Room 215! Rufus steps closer towards the doorstep leading to Kristin's apartment room. Rufus steps closer... ...and closer towards the door. Rufus frowns. Sweats even more. Rufus is even more nervous. Rufus steps the closest he can to Kristin's doorstep. SMASH! A sound coming from inside the room startles Rufus causing him to jump a little. Rufus sighs. RUFUS (hushed) Oh shit. Rufus just stares at the door. ROOM 215. He just stares coldly at what's in front of him. For a moment, he frowns. Now, what the fuck is he gonna do next? EXT. STREET NIGHT Rufus hurries out of the apartment building. He's surely fucked if Kristin Welling finds out he's up to something. Rufus studies the BUILDING IN FRONT OF THE BROWNSTONE. It's an abandoned building. Brick walls. A rusty fire escape above. If he can figure out what window Kristin Welling's apartment room is and if he can climb up the fire escape all he has to do is pray for Kristin's curtains to be open and he'll sure as hell get his chance at taking those pics. RUFUS Ah. Fuck this, man! Rufus walks back towards his Adventure. Rufus steps into his vehicle. Starts it up. CUT TO: EXT. RUFUS'S LAWN NIGHT Rufus holds a camcorder in his hands. It's one of those nice camcorders with a small monitor at the sides so whoever's holding it can see what the camera sees... Rufus has a little difficulty adjusting the focus of the camera. CAMCORDER'S POV, ZOOMS IN the house just straight ahead of Rufus's lawn. A FAMILY OF SIX surround a dinner table and begin with their supper. The POV ZOOMS a little closer. RUFUS Looking good. Rufus coughs. He toys with the camcorder some more. RUFUS What's cooking, folks? THE CAMCORDER ZOOMS OUT OF THE HOUSE AND BEGINS TO PAN LEFT. Yellow tape still surrounds the house to Rufus's left. A horrid and disturbing sight. If he pisses off Mr. Bolton, his house could very well end up looking like that. Rufus focuses once again to the house with the family at the dinner table. HE ZOOMS IN once again. Fascinated at what he's seeing. INT. ADVENTURE DAY SUPER: DAY 5 Rufus drives his Adventure. Zeus rides on the passenger seat. Rufus is driving downtown. Somewhere. RUFUS Where--- ZEUS The bookshop at fifty-ninth. RUFUS I see. ZEUS So how are you? RUFUS Same as usual. Rufus continues to drive the car. RUFUS You know what are my plans? ZEUS What? RUFUS I'm gonna give up. ZEUS What? RUFUS I'm too tired for this. I don't care if my life is on the line. I'm giving up. I'm not gonna do this shit for somebody who's gonna kill me if I don't do it. ZEUS That's the spirit. RUFUS I'm fucking sick of it! ZEUS Go to the cops. RUFUS What? ZEUS Let the police know all about this. RUFUS What? Why should I? ZEUS They can help you... RUFUS What. The bastard said he's gonna find out even before I think about doing it. Then he'll kill me. ZEUS How? Rufus doesn't answer. ZEUS How? RUFUS I don't know... ZEUS See, he could have been bluffing. RUFUS No. A man who shot my house up. Killed my neighbors... he's not bluffing. ZEUS He could be. RUFUS No. I won't take any chances. ZEUS Hey, like I said, you're on your own with this shit... RUFUS I know. ZEUS So, what are you gonna do?? RUFUS Find a fucking way to get him those fifty pictures of Kristin Welling. Naked. ZEUS Find your own way to do that, chum. RUFUS Yeah. ZEUS You. Are on your own. RUFUS You mentioned something about changing taking her pictures, and... altering them, right? Using some program with my computer. And I'll... get someone to print them out. And then--- ZEUS Well, you can try that. Rufus sighs. RUFUS I don't know. ZEUS Try it, Rufus. RUFUS No. ZEUS How many days 'til he blows your ass away. RUFUS Shut the fuck up! ZEUS How many days? RUFUS Four days from now. ZEUS Well, you gotta get off your ass. Start doing something! Ask for a day off. RUFUS No. ZEUS Why not? RUFUS I don't know where I'm going anymore, Zeus. ZEUS Come on! RUFUS I'm gonna start tonight. ZEUS What? RUFUS I'll start taking those pictures tonight. ZEUS Good. Rufus pulls up his vehicle. Zeus unlocks his seatbelt and makes a move to get off. RUFUS This is it, right? ZEUS Um...yeah. Thanks!!! RUFUS Hey there, no problem! ZEUS Thanks. Zeus gets off the car and slams the passenger seat door shut. Rufus takes off. INT. MALL NIGHT Rufus walks towards a bookstore. No. Not the bookstore he dropped Zeus off to earlier. Another one. A bigger one. Rufus steps into THE BOOKSTORE And begins scanning the area for whatever it is he's gonna buy. He sees a familiar face. VINCENT. One of his sixth graders. Rufus raises a brow. RUFUS Hey there. Rufus walks past Vincent after tapping him once on the shoulder. VINCENT Hey there, Mr. Carter. Rufus picks up something from a shelf. A box of pencils. Vincent, for some reason approaches Rufus. VINCENT Hey, Mr. Carter. Can we talk? RUFUS What about it? VINCENT There's something I wanna say to you. RUFUS What is it? VINCENT There's someone--- Beat. Vincent frowns. Hesitates to speak. Rufus frowns. RUFUS Any problems? Vincent takes a breath. RUFUS School or anything? VINCENT It's just that--- Vincent takes a deep breath. RUFUS What is it, Vincent? VINCENT No. Forget about it. I might just annoy you. RUFUS Come on, Vincent, I have all the time in the world. VINCENT You sure about that? RUFUS Yes. Try me. VINCENT Nah. I shouldn't--- I better hit the road--- b--- RUFUS Come on, Vincent, what's bothering you? VINCENT Something that might not concern you. RUFUS Everything about my students concerns me, Rufus. Rufus nods to show approval of what he just said. He even raises a brow. RUFUS My students are my first priority. Yeah, right. Vincent nods. VINCENT I like someone in class. There's this girl--- RUFUS Oh. You have a crush on one of the girls in class? OUR CLASS? VINCENT Yes, Mr. Carter. Rufus carefully replaces the box of pencils to the shelf. RUFUS So, what about it? VINCENT I... ... like her. RUFUS That's okay. VINCENT I do. RUFUS What do you like about her? VINCENT Everything. When she smiles. RUFUS Well, I wouldn't worry. You can start hitting on girls when you're a seventh grader... ah, hell you can court her now. Just don't let a lot of people know about it. Things could go wrong. You can get yourself into trouble. But I say--- Rufus clears his throat. RUFUS You're too young to worry about yourself. How you look. No need to be insecure at your age, son... just relax. VINCENT I wanted to open this up to my mom and dad, but--- Rufus frowns. RUFUS You know they won't wanna talk about it. Rufus takes a breath. RUFUS That's why you don't want to tell them about it. VINCENT Yes, sir. RUFUS Well, don't worry! VINCENT What am I gonna do? Rufus shrugs. RUFUS Do what you can. By now, Rufus can tell how geeky Vincent really is. VINCENT Something bothers me... RUFUS Let me guess, she might not like you. Rufus taps Vincent on the shoulder, reassuring him... RUFUS Don't think that. Think positive, she'll like you... VINCENT No, it's not that. RUFUS What--- VINCENT I fantasize about her, in... ugly ways. RUFUS You mean you --- A pause. Rufus takes a deep breath. INSERT FLASHBACK: Rufus masturbating in his bed. While he's still young. INSERT FLASHBACK: Rufus peeping at the girl taking a piss on the ladies room. END FLASHBACKS. Rufus just nods at Vincent. RUFUS (sotto) Try not to worry about... that... and don't... VINCENT Sir, I'm sorry! Don't tell--- RUFUS No, no, no, no, don't worry. I'm busy, kiddo. I've gotta get myself some pencils. You better go on with what you have to do here, okay? VINCENT Sure, Mr. Carter. INT. DAMON SMITS'S APARTMENT ROOM DAY SUPER: DAY 6 Damon's room is messed up. There are lots of magazines about cars. Books in his bed, scattered. Damon is seated on the bed. Rufus is seated on an armchair just in front of Damon. DAMON I know I'm a slob. But I can't help it, dog. Damon laughs. RUFUS That's okay. Sometimes I can't get myself organized. DAMON You came here for help? RUFUS Because I want someone to talk to. DAMON Holy shit. Damon laughs. DAMON You're fucking lonely. RUFUS No. DAMON What did you come here, for Rufus? RUFUS I'm not really sure. Rufus coughs. RUFUS I think I should leave. DAMON No, nigga, stay here! Let's talk about your problems. RUFUS My problems are EXTREME. DAMON So are mine. RUFUS You won't want to here about it again. DAMON Rufus, I might help you out with this... whatever's going on with you. RUFUS Three fucking days left. And I haven't gotten myself started. DAMON What? RUFUS If the guy who called me gets really pissed. I'm a dead man in three days. DAMON Come on, man. Make the first move. Go to the fucking cops. The son of a bitch who's tormenting you is nailed! RUFUS I don't think it's that easy. DAMON It is that easy. Dude, I know this cop who couldn't give a shit about how perverted you are. He's my friend. He works here. In this city. Just go to the station and--- RUFUS No. DAMON Dog, come on y----- RUFUS No. I can't do that. DAMON So what are you gonna do? RUFUS (sotto, to himself) Three fucking days more and I haven't taken a single picture. DAMON What?! INT. LIVING ROOM NIGHT Rufus sits on the couch. He's quite bleary. The T.V. is off. Rufus reaches for the remote--- THE TELEPHONE RINGS. Rufus drops the remote on the table in front of the couch and picks up the call. BOLTON Tick tock. Tick tock. RUFUS I know. BOLTON I take you haven't taken a single picture yet. RUFUS That's not true. How would you know that? BOLTON I know you more than you know yourself. RUFUS Fuck that. I've taken thirty already. Rufus swallows hard. He just hopes saying that would help. RUFUS I only need twenty more. BOLTON Don't fucking lie to me Rufus. RUFUS What? BOLTON There are no pictures yet. RUFUS Like I said. How could you know? Have you been following me, huh? Whenever I went to Kristin Welling's house. Did I hesitate to take a snapshot, huh? Well, I didn't. BOLTON You are a fucking liar, Rufus. RUFUS That's true, but I wouldn't lie about this one. Beat. Rufus frowns. He gets very nervous. He starts to sweat. RUFUS Since there are only twenty left, tell me how the fuck am I supposed to give them to you. BOLTON I'll call you on Day nine. RUFUS You sure about that? BOLTON I'll tell you where to go. But if I find out that you haven't reached fifty with those pictures, you'll be dead before you can even get home. I'll probably run a fucking knife through your chest, and there will be instant frenzy in Gallagher campus. Think about it, THE CHEST STABBING MURDERS. Who could be--- RUFUS Shut the fuck up. BOLTON Then again, Rufus. It wouldn't have to be that way if you deliver. RUFUS Yeah, I'll get you your fucking pictures, so stop--- The line goes dead. After awhile, Rufus replaces the receiver to the telephone. EXT. SCHOOL PLAYGROUND DAY SUPER: DAY 7 Rufus and Zeus walk slowly, in circles around the school playground. ZEUS What's up? RUFUS I only have three days left, Zeus. ZEUS I couldn't give a shit about you, Rufus. If the guy kills you, all the people you fucked privacy with will be very happy. If they're already dead, they'll clap their hands to see you go to hell. RUFUS Could it be any worse than that? ZEUS You haven't taken a single picture yet? RUFUS No! ZEUS When will you start moving anyways? RUFUS I don't know! I don't know! ZEUS Remember what I told you early on? RUFUS What? ZEUS Plant some of those spy cam devices on Kristin Welling's house. When she starts to undress, you make those cameras click in some way, and there you have it... RUFUS Like I said, I can only take those kinds of pictures in ladies rooms. ZEUS Just because you haven't done it before, doesn't mean you can't do it now. It's worth a try. RUFUS You think I'm a lunatic. ZEUS You are. RUFUS Hey--- ZEUS So find a way to break into Kristin Welling's... RUFUS Apartment room. ZEUS Yeah... and plant those cameras, set it to take fifty snapshots on your cue and you're done. RUFUS But I'm not sure if it's worth it. ZEUS What? RUFUS This guy might just kill me anyways. ZEUS That's what you have to deal with, Rufus. THE SCHOOL BELL RINGS. The hundreds of students start rumbling into the campus through the double doors. INT. PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE DAY Three MALE COPS arrive. One of them is Officer Zimmer. The principal stands and greets them. PRINCIPAL Sit. Please. The three officers sit on each of the three chairs in front of the Principal's desk. PRINCIPAL What can I do for you, Officers? ZIMMER We're here to investigate the disappearance of Vorhees Henderson. PRINCIPAL Yeah. I'm glad you actually came forward to open this up to me. The Henderson parents constantly pester me every now and again, and I... DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. ZIMMER Which is why we're here. PRINCIPAL Could he have been kidnapped? ZIMMER We couldn't know that, sir. PRINCIPAL What happened? ZIMMER We don't know sir. PRINCIPAL I'm sorry, I might not be able to be a help to--- ZIMMER You can tell us where you've last seen him? PRINCIPAL In this campus of course. But I'm not quite sure if I've seen him. The principal chuckles. PRINCIPAL Sir, I'm a busy man, and I really don't keep track--- ZIMMER I understand. INT. MEN'S ROOM DAY Rufus and Zeus argue. RUFUS How the fuck am I gonna cover this up? ZEUS Calm down, okay! RUFUS Don't fucking tell me to calm down. ZEUS What?!!! RUFUS That's the cop who showed up the day after the lunatic shot my house up! ZEUS So? RUFUS I--- ZEUS So? RUFUS Forget it. ZEUS Don't worry. He knows you. You'll make friends with him--- RUFUS Friends? ZEUS Yes! RUFUS I'm not talking to any of those sons of a bitches from the police station. ZEUS What's eating you, Rufus? RUFUS I'm not in the mood. ZEUS Fuck that, I'm not in the mood too! RUFUS I ain't talking to them. ZEUS If you don't talk--- they'll think you killed--- RUFUS Okay. Fine I'm talking. ZEUS Just lie smoothly. INT. PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE DAY Rufus starts talking to the cops. The principal in front of all of them. ZIMMER Hello again, Mr. Carter. RUFUS Yeah. ZIMMER You know anything about the disappearance of Vorhees Henderson? RUFUS No. Beat. Rufus gets nervous. Starts to sweat. ZIMMER Yes, Rufus? RUFUS Nothing. It's just that I'm disturbed--- ZIMMER Tell us all about it. RUFUS How could someone snatch a kid so easily? ZIMMER We didn't necessarily speculate on kidnapping. RUFUS I know... ZIMMER Do you know what might have happened to him? RUFUS Not a clue in the world. ZIMMER Okay. INT. LIVING ROOM NIGHT Rufus sits on the couch. He picks up the receiver on his phone. Dials up a number. DAMON Yeah? RUFUS Damon? DAMON Who is this? RUFUS It's me. DAMON Oh, hi there. RUFUS It's---- DAMON What's up? RUFUS How am I gonna plant those cameras? DAMON What? RUFUS I have these spy cams that I used to, you know... DAMON So what's the problem? RUFUS How am I supposed to plant them inside Kristin Welling's place? DAMON What--- RUFUS She lives in an apartment. People could see me, you know. DAMON So? RUFUS You got any suggestions? DAMON Shit, man, I don't know... INT. APARTMENT BUILDING, THIRD FLOOR DAY SUPER: DAY 8 Rufus just stands in front of Room 215. Rufus is nervous and very sweaty. RUFUS (hushed) How the fuck am I gonna handle this? He steps closer to the door. Rufus hears footsteps. He turns instinctively. To see Kristin coming up! Oh shit! Kristin is dressed decently in civilian. RUFUS (very hushed) Fuck. Kristin approaches Rufus and frowns. KRISTIN May I help you? RUFUS (panicked) This Room 215, right? KRISTIN Yes? RUFUS Well, I was... KRISTIN Any problem? Looking for somebody? I stay in that room. RUFUS I--- KRISTIN Sir, if there's something you wanna say. RUFUS No. I must be making a mistake. Kristin walks towards her door and digs into her pocket for keys. She opens her door and steps into her apartment room. Kristin hesitates to close the door. KRISTIN You look restless, sir. RUFUS I guess I am. KRISTIN Is there anything you want to say to me? RUFUS Um... KRISTIN I can offer some help. If you're looking for somebody--- RUFUS No. No. I'm okay, really. Kristin just nods slowly. Rufus absently raises a brow. Rufus takes a breath. RUFUS Listen, Miss--- KRISTIN Yes? Come on, tell me what or who you're looking for. RUFUS You wouldn't wanna know. KRISTIN Come on. Beat. Kristin forces a smile. KRISTIN If you're just gonna stand there, I can't help you in any way. Unless you--- RUFUS Forget it. I'm going now. KRISTIN Well, it's your choice. RUFUS Trust me. Rufus makes a move to turn around and leave. Kristin doesn't close the door. Rufus turns back to Kristin. RUFUS If ever I see you again--- I'm Rufus. Kristin nods. KRISTIN Okay. Rufus. RUFUS All right. Kristin still doesn't close the door. Rufus and Kristin just stare at each other. RUFUS Um... what? KRISTIN You look familiar. I've ... Rufus frowns. Oh shit. RUFUS Yes? KRISTIN I think I've seen you somewhere. I know you, you're--- RUFUS Nah. It must be somebody else. KRISTIN NO. I swear to God. I have--- RUFUS Where have you seen me? KRISTIN Somewhere. RUFUS Look, you must be a really busy woman. I'll get the hell out of here... KRISTIN Okay. Okay. Kristin is just about to close her door and--- RUFUS OH! KRISTIN Yes? RUFUS You look familiar too... Miss--- KRISTIN Welling. Kristin smiles. Rufus walks towards the staircase. Rufus walks down the stairs. RUFUS (sotto) I know you to, Kristin Welling. EXT. APARTMENT BUILDING DAY Rufus walks towards his Adventure. He pulls out his car keys from his pocket. Rufus opens the driver's seat door with the keys. Rufus steps into the vehicle. Rufus slams his car door shut. Rufus begins to start up his engines. But just as he does so--- he sees Kristin walk out of the Brownstone. Kristin crosses the street and walks towards him. Kristin waves. Rufus forces a smile and raises a brow in acknowledgement. Rufus steps out of the car. Kristin approaches him. RUFUS Yes? KRISTIN Sir, whoever you are--- RUFUS Rufus. KRISTIN I figured that... RUFUS That what? KRISTIN You... RUFUS I told you. It's okay. I'm... Rufus stutters. RUFUS I'm not looking for anybody. KRISTIN You might have some business with me. RUFUS NO. I don't have anything to do with you. KRISTIN Are you sure? RUFUS Yes. I'm absolutely sure. KRISTIN I see. Kristin doesn't look at Rufus. She looks at the sidewalk she's standing on. She nods her head slowly. KRISTIN I see. RUFUS You wanna go out for coffee? KRISTIN I better get back to my apartment. I know you're a busy man. No. I don't wanna go out for--- Kristin laughs. KRISTIN Coff--- Kristin laughs some more. KRISTIN Coffee. RUFUS Okay. KRISTIN But I'd love to! Beat. This is the first time Rufus has seen a woman so open to him. RUFUS Really? KRISTIN I'm sure you're an okay man. RUFUS Nah. I don't wanna bother you. I better get going. BYE! Rufus steps into his vehicle. Rufus starts up his car hastily and takes off. Kristin waves slowly. INT. RESTAURANT NOON Zeus and Rufus are seated in front of each other on a table. A waiter places two plates, with their lunch in front of them. The waiter leaves. Zeus and Rufus start eating. ZEUS How are things going? RUFUS I don't wanna do this. ZEUS What? RUFUS She's nice. ZEUS You talked to her? RUFUS Yes. ZEUS Way to go. RUFUS Nah. I walked into the Brownstone she's staying in. Stood in front of her room. She arrived. And we had a little talk. She asked me what my business was, I told her it was nothing that concerned her. But--- ZEUS What? RUFUS Anyways, I walked the hell out of the apartment building. She followed me and we continued chatting. She knows my name. ZEUS But she doesn't know that you know hers? RUFUS She knows that I know she's a Ms. Welling. ZEUS Oh. That's a good start. Now that you know her, you shouldn't have a hard time. RUFUS Are you fucking kidding? Rufus finishes with his lunch. Zeus is still eating. Slowly. RUFUS Now that I know her, I care about her... ZEUS That's good. You don't care about getting yourself killed anymore. RUFUS No. Rufus frowns. RUFUS NO. NO. It's not like that either. ZEUS What is it like, then, huh? INT. RUFUS'S LIVING ROOM NIGHT Rufus is talking to someone over the phone. RUFUS I can't do this. DAMON What's up? RUFUS The girl is nice! DAMON You fucking met her? She knows you? RUFUS Yeah. I talked to her... and I don't wanna do this anymore. DAMON Well, you have more chances of getting those pics done now that you know the girl.

RUFUS I said no cops. DAMON He couldn't care. RUFUS What do you mean? DAMON He doesn't give a fuck. He's a good man. RUFUS He couldn't give a fuck if--- DAMON If you were some perverted loser, as long as you turn to him for help with all your sincerity, ... he couldn't give a fuck about who you are. He's a good man. RUFUS No. DAMON So, maybe you can talk to him. Ask him questions. RUFUS And who is this cop? DAMON You're never gonna know if you won't let me introduce him to you. RUFUS Who is he? DAMON A sleazy motor mouth of a policeman. RUFUS No. I don't want to --- DAMON Rufus, are you just gonna sit on your ass and wait for this lunatic who keeps calling you to kill you tonight? RUFUS Do I have a choice? DAMON LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO MY POLICEMAN FRIEND! INT. PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE DAY Rufus stands in front of the principal, who is as usual in a bad mood. PRINCIPAL What in blazes is going on with you, Carter? RUFUS Sir? PRINCIPAL You heard me. RUFUS I had a headache, sir... PRINCIPAL Do you know how many students are seated on their butts, studying, playing paper airplanes waiting for you? RUFUS I'm aware of that, sir--- PRINCIPAL For God's sake, if you're away from your class for too long, chaos could very well take place.

Rufus steps out of the office. A minute goes by. A POLICE OFFICER, another one walks towards the Principal's office. This officer knocks. His name is OFFICER DURST. The principal just nods for him to get in. Durst gets in. PRINCIPAL I haven't done anything wrong, have I officer? DURST Not really. PRINCIPAL Sit. Make your self feel comfortable. Durst sits. DURST Is Nicole Taylor absent, sir? PRINCIPAL I don't know, I have to check on her class adviser on that, I... am quite busy today. DURST That's because Nicole Taylor has been missing. PRINCIPAL What? DURST Her parents called us last night. PRINCIPAL WHAT'S GOING ON HERE? FIRST VORHEES HENDERSON, AND NOW--- DURST Yes, sir. And by the way, Detective Zimmer and his team wanted you to know that they found the body, downtown. PRINCIPAL Body? DURST Vorhees Henderson is dead sir. PRINCIPAL Sweet mother of God! DURST I'm sorry to let you hear that, sir. PRINCIPAL I'm glad you let us know. DURST He--- PRINCIPAL Was he attacked? DURST Someone ran a knife through his chest. We found him dead, on a sidewalk downtown. One of our officers was doing his routine patrol, then a bum came forward and... PRINCIPAL (in shock) Jesus. DURST You know Nicole Taylor don't you? PRINCIPAL Yes, she's part of the student body in this elementary school sir, you see our stude--- DURST (coldly) I see. PRINCIPAL What could have happened? DURST She could have been murdered, like Vorhees Henderson. Or kidnapped. PRINCIPAL OH. MY. GOD. DURST But we try to keep the Taylors calm. We don't want them to panic.

SCHOOL GROUND LATE DAY Zeus walks towards the sidewalk, away from the school. Rufus follows him, just barely. RUFUS Yo, Zeus, wait up! ZEUS Yes? RUFUS It's day nine. I haven't taken a picture yet... ZEUS So? Hey, man I'm not part of this. RUFUS I want to be kept company. ZEUS By whom? RUFUS You and Damon. I'm telling Damon to come over. ZEUS What? RUFUS The bastard's gonna call me again. Keep me company. ZEUS You mean, you want us to die with you? RUFUS He ain't gonna kill you. ZEUS Are you sure? RUFUS Trust me, Zeus. INT. RUFUS'S LIVING ROOM NIGHT Rufus lies down on his sofa. He's all sweaty, nervous. Zeus at at the DINING ROOM Zeus is seated at one end of the dining table. Zeus is all restless. He gets up, walks back and forth. Zeus sits.

OKAY! Damon is seated on the floor, just in front of the sofa where Rufus lies. Damon gets up, turns to Rufus who's now even more sweaty. And nervous. DAMON You okay? RUFUS No. DAMON So--- RUFUS What's taking this guy so long to call??? DAMON You waiting for him to call you? RUFUS He's gonna call me all right. DAMON We better not be in for some real pretty shit just because of you. Zeus emerges from the dining room to the LIVING ROOM. Zeus nods reassuringly. ZEUS I wouldn't worry. RUFUS That's right. Rufus gets himself up right. And leans on his back. His hand touches the receiver of the telephone, ready to pick up Mr. Bolton's call for tonight. RUFUS Don't worry about a thing. THE PHONE RINGS. Rufus picks up the call. BOLTON I know you haven't taken a single picture, Rufus... RUFUS Wai---- BOLTON It's day nine, not a single graphic, nude picture of Kristin Welling. I would have given you the chance to go for thirty instead of fifty. But you really pissed me off. RUFUS Hold on, how could you know that--- BOLTON I'm giving you a chance. RUFUS You better. BOLTON I'm giving you three more days to get those pictures done. I'll call you again. If I lose my patience again, you'll be dead while you're sleeping. Got that? RUFUS Yeah, I got--- The line goes dead. Rufus drops the receiver to the telephone. Zeus squints, gets a confused look on his face. ZEUS What? RUFUS He's giving me three more days. ZEUS That's good. RUFUS NO. DAMON Dog, it's final. Like it or not, I'm introducing you to the cop I've been telling you about, we'll let him help you out, trace the phone calls that you'll be getting and we'll nail the motherfucker. RUFUS No. No. I don't want to. Remember, Mr. Bolton has some of the pictures I taken. He probably took them, wore some gloves and if he turns me in before I know it, I'm already dirty, the cops will detain me, I'm going to jail... DAMON NO. Not with this cop. INT. KRISTIN WELLING'S APARTMENT ROOM NIGHT Rufus is lying down on Kristin's bed. Kristin is in her nightclothes, and she's flirty tonight. Wow, that's a surprise!

SIDEWALK DAY Rufus Adventure is parked up in front of Kristin's apartment. Kristin walks out of her apartment, obviously not dressed for school. She sees Rufus in his car instantly. Oh shit. Kristin approaches Rufus in his vehicle. Rufus opens his window. KRISTIN You have something with me. I know it. Kristin smiles. KRISTIN Tell me... RUFUS No, Kristin, I don't... KRISTIN How'd you know my name? A long pause. Rufus still doesn't speak. Kristin backs up a few steps away from the vehicle. RUFUS I kind of like you. I find you attractive. Wanna go out for that coffee? Beat. KRISTIN (smiles) Why not. EXT. COFFEE SHOP DAY Kristin and Rufus walk out of the coffee shop. RUFUS Want me to give you a ride home? Kristin wraps her arms around Rufus flirtatiously. KRISTIN Please do, Rufus Carter. RUFUS I like you. Kristin laughs. KRISTIN You're funny. Sometimes you say things off the top of your head, don't you? FADE OUT INT. LIVING ROOM NIGHT Rufus is alone sitting on his sofa. He looks rather disturbed. He takes some deep breaths. He looks like a fucking maniac now. After all, he is. Rufus PUTS ON A SKI MASK. OH FUCK, WHAT IS HE UP TO? INT. THIRD FLOOR NIGHT Rufus slowly walks towards Room 215. Wearing the ski mask. He walks slowly, very slowly. He whips out a small, black still camera from his pocket. The same one that he used in his dream. Rufus gets CLOSER TO KRISTIN'S DOOR. Rufus KICKS KRISTIN'S DOOR WIDE OPEN. KRISTIN'S DOOR FLIES FORWARD AND LANDS HARD ON THE FLOOR. INT. KRISTIN'S APARTMENT ROOM Kristin emerges out of the bathroom, wearing night clothes. KRISTIN Aaaaaaaah! RUFUS Strip. Rufus tries to make his voice, dark, mysterious so Kristin won't be able to identify him. RUFUS I'm taking fifty pictures of you, whoever you are! Now strip! Kristin dashes forward, punches Rufus in the face and unmasks him! Rufus falls on his back to the floor. Kristin looks at him in shock. KRISTIN Rufus! RUFUS It wasn't me!!!!! KRISTIN Rufus! RUFUS Someone told me to do this. Someone fucking threatened me. Rufus leans against a wall. Kristin bends down, not intimidated in any way by the maniac who's in front of her. KRISTIN Who told you to do this, Rufus? TIME CUT: They're still in the same position, this time Kristin is crouched on the floor. RUFUS If I don't get those pictures taken by tomorrow... those fifty pictures. He'll kill me. KRISTIN I'm sorry--- RUFUS And he'll kill you. KRISTIN Then we should go to the police. Kristin gets up, more relaxed and sits on her bed. RUFUS I tried to do it to protect you. Rufus starts to cry. RUFUS And--- Rufus sobs. RUFUS I'm sorry about your door. KRISTIN Don't worry about it. RUFUS I can't go to the cops. I'm a maniac. He knows I'm a perverted maniac, he'll find a way to let the cops know if I... turn to them. KRISTIN So... what are you... FADE OUT INT. LIVING ROOM LATE DAY Rufus is talking to someone over the phone. RUFUS I have them!

The derelict building in front of the porno shop that's supposed to close at eleven. So eighty ninth. Eleven thirty. Be there or die. EXT. STREET NIGHT Rufus walks towards an ABANDONED BUILDING. INT. THE BUILDING NIGHT It's all rusty. He can't see! It's all dark and rusty. Only a light bulb is on. It dangles from the ceiling about 70 feet above. A rusty steel chair sits in the middle of the floor. VOICE SIT! RUFUS Mr. Bolton? VOICE Yes. Rufus pulls out the envelope from his pocket. A HAND REACHES IN FROM THE DARKNESS AND GRABS THE ENVELOPE. Rufus swallows hard. VOICE WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS, RUFUS? Bolton finally emerges from the darkness and reveals himself, he's wearing a jacket and a ski mask. Rufus pulls out a Glock 19 from his coat. He points it carefully to Bolton. RUFUS My friend gave me this gun. I'll blow you away! All I gotta do is pull the trigger, he fixed it up for me. Now all I'll do is fucking kill you. Rufus threatens Bolton with the gun, forcing him to back away and then lean against the wall. Rufus has the gun pointed on Bolton's forehead... Rufus unmasks Bolton revealing --- ZEUS!!!!!!!!!!! RUFUS Zeus?! ZEUS Yes. So shoot me, my friend. Rufus pulls the trigger of what was supposed to be a cocked gun. CLICK! CLICK! RUFUS You gave me a malfunctioning gun, you son of a bitch! Zeus grapples Rufus and disarms him of the gun. Zeus pistol whips Rufus, and Rufus drops to the concrete floor. ZEUS What malfunctioning, you dumbassed fuck?!!! I pulled the slide before I slapped the mag in, how could a round have entered the chamber? I knew you were dumb, so I trusted your stupidity and gave you... my Glock. RUFUS Why???
