Standing above the third table is FATHER (40).

 

FATHER

Are you excited darling?

 

SOI (14)

Yes, father.

 

FATHER

Want me to walk you to school?

 

Father is stitching Soi’s arm together.

 

SOI

Please don’t, Father.

 

FATHER

Okay darling, but be home before six. Okay?

 

SOI

Yes father.

 

FATHER

All done darling, now don’t be late to school.

 

SOI

Yes father.

 

Father kisses Soi on her stitches before grabbing his tools and moving to his desk.

Soi fixes her school uniform before getting off the operation table.

Soi walks over to the coat hanger.

 

SOI

Goodbye Father.

 

Leaving the lab, Soi grabs her empty schoolbag that had been hanging on the coat hanger.

All the new first year students were flooding through the gates, all lining to enter through the front doors.

INT " CLASSROOM B-13 " MORNING

 

Soi, sits at the back of the room.

Everyone talks amongst themselves.

 

GIRL #1 (Whispers)

Who is that in the corner?

 

GIRL #2 (Whispers)

 She looks scary… so pale… is she a goth?

 

GIRL #1 (Whispers)

I think she has stitches on her face.

 

GIRL #3(Whispers)

No way really.

 

GIRL #1(Whispers)

I think so.

 

GIRL #2(Whispers)

I wonder if they are real?

 

Soi, rests her head down on the desk, ignoring her class.

 

SOI (Inner Thoughts)

Kill me now… back at school and I am already being talked about.

 

A girl, looms over Soi’s Desk.

AYA (14)

Hi, I am Aya. What’s your name?

 

Soi looks up.

SOI

…Oh, it’s Soi.

Soi, gives a smile.

AYA

Soi. Well it’s nice to meet you.

 

SOI

You too… do you need something?

 

AYA

Kind of, I was hoping we could be friends, so is it alright if I take this seat next to you?

 

SOI

Yes, of course, go ahead.

 

Aya takes a seat at the next desk over.

 

AYA

Thanks. So, do you live nearby?

 

SOI

Yeah kind of. Five, ten-minute cycle.

 

AYA

Do you cycle?

 

SOI

No.

 

Aya gives an odd look at Soi.

Entering the room was the teacher, all the students became quiet.

 

TEACHER

Class A " 3? I guess I am your homeroom teacher…

 

CUT:

INT " CLASSROOM B-13 " PRE-NOON

 

The bell rings. Lunch Time.

The students start leaving in groups, some stay in the classroom to eat lunch.

Aya pulls out a packed lunch.

Soi, gets up to leave.

 

AYA

Will you have lunch with me?

 

 

SOI

Yeah sure.

Soi sits back down.

Aya joins her desk to Soi’s so that they can have lunch.

 

AYA

Aren’t you going to get your lunch out?

 

SOI

Ahh… I don’t eat.

 

AYA

?

Aya looks confused.

AYA

What do you mean.

 

SOI

Oh… well I don’t have a stomach… so I don’t eat.

 

AYA

Whaaaat!

You don’t have a stomach? Are you Human?

 

SOI

Yes?

I was born Human and with all my organs, but I have had some removed.

 

AYA

Some removed. What organs are you missing? Wait no… how are you even living?

 

SOI

I have about 30% of my original organs, I have been altered on a genetic level, but I am still a living breathing human.

 

AYA

I have so much questions.

Are comfortable in answering them?

 

SOI

Not really but I might as well answer some, seeing how you know this much already.

 

AYA

How did this happen?

FOUR YEARS AGO.

FATHER (36) BRODY (?)

Brody sits on his Throne.

Father kneels at the Throne.

 

FATHER

Please, I need your recourses?

 

BRODY

I warn you, my help comes with a price?

 

FATHER

Name your price.

 

BRODY

I want your science to serve me, I want you to serve without question, if you can swear allegiance to me, I shall help you.

 

FATHER

Very well… My loyalty is yours, and yours alone… to save my daughter I will offer you my skill and knowledge, I will be your Doctor… and I will do as you wish.

 

BRODY

Very good Doctor, I will grant the resources that you require, now begone.

 

FATHER

Yes, thank you my Lord.

 

Father bows his head, then stands up and swiftly leaves.

 

BRODY

You can come in now.

 

A ghost maid enters from the floor.

 

MOTHER (28)

Thank you for saving my daughter.

 

BRODY

I didn’t do it for you… I have my own reasons.

 

MOTHER

Well anyway, thank you.

 

BRODY

Get attending to your duties.

 

MOTHER

Yes, my Lord.

Aya and Soi walk out of the school gates.

They both stop at the gates.

 

AYA

Can you take me sometime?

 

SOI

To hell?

 

AYA

Yes, can we go?

 

SOI

I’m not sure, it’s possible but I can’t say for sure, but I will ask my mother.

 

AYA

Okay, that’s fine, no pressure. Well I guess I will see you tomorrow?

 

Soi smiles at Aya as she turns away.

Aya crosses the road, Soi waits to Aya is out of sight, before leaving herself.

 

SOI (Inner Thoughts)

Did that really happen? She is crazy, most humans would have avoided me, I really thought she would run once I told her the truth… does she believe me… I guess it is too far to turn back.

 

CUT:

INT " SOI’S HOUSE " NIGHT

Soi walks in, she hangs her school bag by the door and then proceeds to take off her shoes.

 

SOI

Father I am home!

 

Soi walks down the hall and into the living room.

 

INT " SOI’S HOUSE " LIVING ROOM " NIGHT

 

A modern day living room.

Soi walks in and makes her way over to the counter that separates the living room from the kitchen.

She walks over to a note on the counter. She picks it up and reads.

 

NOTE (FATHER)

Welcome home darling, I am working down in the basement.

Your medicine is on the counter, please take it at six, and if I don’t see you by the end of the night please remember to jot down any problems with your arm.

Love, Father.

 

Soi sets the note down.

Soi throws herself on to the couch, and lies across it, as she relaxes.

Soi flicks on the television, flicking through stations, until finding an interesting show.

 

CUT:

INT " BRODY’S CASTLE " BRODY’S CHAMBERS " NIGHT

 

Brody lies in his bed.

MOTHER is making tea, in the corner.

 

 

BRODY

It is only a matter of time now.

 

MOTHER

My Lord, she will never be forced into marriage, as her mother I will not allow it, you understand this.

 

BRODY

Am I so fiendish, do you believe I would force your daughter into marrying me?

 

MOTHER

No, my Lord, but as her mother, I will not allow her to marry you unless it is her own choice.

 

Mother carries over Brody’s tea on a tray.

Mother sets the tray on Brody’s night stand.

Brody gives a nasty smile.

 

BRODY

Thank you, this is how a son-in-law should be treated.

 

MOTHER rolls her eyes.

CUT:

INT " ABIKA HIGH SCHOOL " CLASSROOM B-13 " MORNING

 

Soi sits at her desk.

Everyone is mingling amongst themselves.

Aya walks in. She waves over at Soi.

Soi awkwardly smiles. Aya makes her way over to the desk beside Soi.

 

AYA

Morning

 

SOI

Hi… how are you?

 

AYA

Grand. So, tell me, did you talk to your mother?

 

Soi, nervously smiles.

SOI

Yeah, I asked her last night.

 

CUT:

INT " SOI’S HOUSE " FLASHBACK

 

Soi’s on the computer, she is video chatting with her mother.

 

MOTHER

So, how was your first day of high school?

 

SOI

It was fine Mother, it was mostly an introduction.

 

MOTHER

Did you make any new friends?

 

SOI

I think so Mother.

 

MOTHER

You don’t sound certain.

 

SOI

I don’t know Mother, I was making friends with a girl named Aya, but I can’t tell if she is serious or not.

MOTHER

Well you need more friends, try to make this work.

 

SOI

I have plenty of friends Mother.

 

Soi smiles a fake smile in front of her mother.

 

MOTHER

Human friends? The only friends I see you with are Demons, you need more friend’s darling, you know I don’t like it when you spend too much time in Hell.

 

SOI

Yes Mother, but I have a problem.

 

MOTHER

What is darling?

 

SOI

Aya wants to visit Hell the next time I go, would it be alright?

 

Mother sits back thinking.

SOI

Mother?

 

MOTHER

Okay darling, but understand… if she can’t handle it then we will have to erase her memories.

 

SOI

Understood Mother.

 

 

MOTHER

Make sure she is on her best behaviour in front of Lord Brody.

 

SOI

I plan to keep her away from that big pervert.

 

MOTHER

You know that’s impossible, the moment you step into Hell, Lord Brody will know.

 

SOI

Yes Mother, I know Mother.

I will keep Aya under control.

 

MOTHER

Well then there shouldn’t be a problem.

 

SOI

Thank you, Mother, but I must go now, I have school in the morning.

 

MOTHER

Alright then, goodnight my darling.

 

SOI

Goodnight Mother.

 

CUT:

INT " CLASSROOM B-13 " MORNING

 

AYA

So…

 

 

SOI

Mother said, that you can go anytime, as long as we don’t annoy Lord Brody.

 

AYA

Really?

 

SOI

Yes, its fine.

 

Soi’s mobile vibrates, alerting that she has a message.

 

AYA

Can we go this week, what about Sunday?

 

SOI

Sure, Sunday is fine.

 

Soi takes her mobile phone to check her messages.

 

AYA

Oh, you have a phone, can I have your number.

 

SOI

Sure, just give me a second.

 

Aya searches her bag for her own mobile.

Soi gets her messages up, she reads her new message.

 

MESSAGE (TOBI, 16)

Your mother say’s your coming back to Hell, when are you coming?

 

 

AYA

So, can I have your number now?

 

Soi gives her attention back to Aya.

 

SOI

Oh, yes of course. Here is mine.

 

Soi reveals her number to Aya.

Aya takes down the number, then reveals her own number for Soi to take down.

 

AYA

Thanks, you can call me at any time.

 

Soi smiles.

SOI

Yeah… you too.

 

The teacher enters the classroom.

Soi quickly texts a response to Tobi.

 

MESSAGE (SOI)

I am going on Sunday, I will be down for a couple of hours, so hopefully we can meet up, I am bringing a friend from school, please be nice to her.

 

A few minutes later Soi’s mobile alerts her to a new message.

 

TEACHER

Who was that? Keep your phones off during class, this is a warning.

 

MESSAGE (TOBI)

Great see you then, I can’t wait to meet your friend.
