8. E2 - Scene 2

MATCH CUT TO:

 

BEGIN FLASHBACK:

 

EXT. ALLEY – NIGHT

 

The single street light flickers. The shadows dance against the walls. We see the looming shadows of Shay and Issac.

 

PAN TO – SHAY AND ISSAC

 

SHAY
Huh... Flurry?

 

Issac freezes, eyes going wide. His mouth works but no sound leaves until he forces laughter past his lips.

 

ISSAC
Flurry? I don’t even know who or what that is. C’mon, man, just let me go.

 

SHAY
I think you know exactly what I’m talking about, snowflake. And I really would advise against trying your cute little snow tricks on me.

 

Issac clenches and unclenches his hands, the frosty mist that was once gathering dissipating again.

 

SHAY
That’s a good boy. Now, I apologize. This might hurt a bit.

 

ISSAC
Wait, what are you--

 

Shay grasps the back of Issac’s head by his hair and bashes his face into the wall much like he did the mugger. Issac crumples but Shay catches him and hoists him up into his arms bridal style. He walks out of the alley.

 

FADE TO:

 

INT. ISSAC’S APARTMENT – NIGHT

 

Shay gently kicks the main door shut and navigates his way through the messy, one bedroom apartment with Issac out of commission in his arms.

 

His foot gets caught on a pair of shorts that he kicks off.

 

SHAY
Jeez. Aren’t you supposed to teach high schoolers, not be one of them?

 

Shay makes it to Issac’s bedroom and sets the man down on his unmade bed. He strips Issac down to his boxers and pulls the covers over him. Shay sets Issac’s belongings on the nightstand and folds the clothes over the edge of the nearly overflowing laundry hamper.

 

Shay rummages through Issac’s cluttered desk and finds a piece of scrap paper and a pen. He scribbles a note and puts it on the nightstand. Shay picks up Issac’s phone.

 

CLOSE ON - SCREEN

 

Shay slides his thumb to unlock the phone and is then faced with the phone’s lock, one where you have to connect the 9 dots in a specific way.

 

BACK TO SHAY

 

Who sighs and pulls his phone out of his pocket. He presses a few buttons and a 3.5mm jack ejects from a hidden compartment of his modded phone. He plugs his phone into Issac's. Issac's phone screen flickers before it's unlocked. Shay tucks his phone away with one hand while tapping around on Issac's with his other. Shay's phone BUZZES in his pocket as he locks Issac's phone again and sets it on the nightstand.

 

SHAY
(hushed)
Night, night, snowflake.

 

END FLASHBACK.
