EXT. TIDAL REEF - NIGHT
ADAIN, dishevelled twenty something screenwriter, master burrito maker at Taco Bell walks with his girlfriend, TIF, a brunette too beautiful to be a background actress and more suited as a bikini model, on a reef under a Full Moon.
I’m so frustrated Tif, I can’t even get
a meeting. I wish we had never came out
here from Ohio.
You just have to believe in yourself
honey. You have to give it more than 6
weeks. I love it here.
Of course you do. You’re doing it.
Are you kidding? I’m working background.
You know I played the lead in the Wooster
Community Theater presentation of...
ADAIN TIF (CONT'D)
Beauty and the Beast. Beauty and the Beast.
I am a real actress.
And I’m a real writer. I just wish
something would happen. Anything.
Bending down and picking something up from the reef.
Hey Tif I found a starfish.
Adain do you remember that song One Eyed,
One Horn, Flying Purple People Eater?
Yeah, my Dad use to tell me that was the
Number One song the year he was born.
Um, turn around. Fast. Adain there’s one
What are you talking about?
As Adain turns the monster leans over and bites him in half. After swallowing he bites again and the entire body is gone.
Wow, you ate my boyfriend. Are we good?
You full, cause this would make a great
one page story for a competition the boy
you just ate told me about.
Tif turns, walks then runs quickly away adding writer to her list of credits.
