INT. HOSPITAL – NIGHT
Pacing back and forth we see MATHEW in 20s, brown hair,
brown eyes, about 5’8″ and he is sweating. A doctor in a
white coat comes up to Mathew and gives him a pill.
I didn’t think I would end up here,
and I didn’t think my life would go
this way. Just like many have said,
yes I feel it’s a cliché. I thought
different doors would open for me.
I even hoped for an open window, I
could at least look into or out
of. I thought…
This young man sits down in a chair that’s against a wall.
He grabs a Kleenex from a box that sits next to him on a
small table with magazines on it. He wipes his forehead.
He puts his head down.
I never would have seen this
coming. I didn’t see any of my
friends, those few I had come to
visit. I never thought I would be
the only one here I had always
wanted a younger or even older
brother or sister, but no that
wasn’t in the cards for this
He slowly puts his head up. Flashes of guns are seen.
My mind raced as if it were in a
He puts his head against the wall. Then images of demons are
seen. Then those demons turn into witches that have tops on,
but they are bottomless and others creatures surround the
I closed my eyes only to see
visions of creatures taken hold of
Mathew is seen being grabbed at by these creatures. He
breaks free and starts to fly. The creatures grab at his
pant legs. Then he flies through different scenes, as if he
was going through pages of a book.
The thing that I noticed mostly was
that I was flying through different
scenes, as if I were going through
pages of a book or several
different movies spliced together.
These witches that I saw, for some
reason, they were showing their
pelvic bone, and I saw them all
with pubic hair. They did have tops
on, but this. What the hell what
weird nightmare is this?
He then sees a girl. She is beautiful and in need. Mathew
runs for her as she is surrounded by different creatures.
I see me trying to help a girl…
Then the girl turns into one of the bottomless witches.
MATHEW (V.O.) (CONT’D)
…only to find out she was one of
After this her face starts to melt away.
MATHEW (V.O.) (CONT’D)
…and then her skin begins to peel
off her face; melting like a
Mathew wakes up suddenly, shakes his head, and rubs his
eyes. He readjusts himself in the chair.
What is going on with my mind? I
don’t know what’s going on.
The intercom goes off. A doctor is being called to a room.
Mathew he starts to slouch in his chair.
I could only sit low in my chair as
I had these visions of creatures
and witches. Why witches? Why
bottomless? Why did they have a
full patch of pubic hair?
Mathew starts to dream the same dream.
These questions I contemplated as I
still watched this dream, and I
tried to figure out what it was
telling me. Nevertheless, it was
gone after a few minutes, but was
it a few minutes or was it a few
Again the intercom goes off calling a doctor and nurse.
INT. HOSPITAL – DAY
Mathew gets up and starts to pace again.
After hearing the intercom again. I
decided to walk around the room to
see if this would help my mind slow
down. My head pounded like someone
was taking a hammer to it. I didn’t
have any Adderall with me. I’ve
taken it for fifteen years, and it
still helps my mind to slow down. I
didn’t start taking it until I was
a teenager because no one really
noticed or really cared I had
issues with my concentration. At
least tonight a white coat noticed,
and gave me something for the pain,
but I guess it wore off.
More people start to fill the waiting room. They come up to
Mathew and pat his back, hug him, and you can see there
mouth move to say, “I’m sorry to hear what happened.”
More people started to fill up the
room, and I became more agitated. I
felt trapped, and I was one who
just couldn’t handle it. I was
hoping that one of the white coats
would come in and tell me some good
news, but like my mom used to say,
“hope for the best, but expect the
worst.” My parents have always been
there for me, and I never would
have thought I would never see them
again, but this was the outcome
that came my way.
EXT. BANK – DAY
Slow motion. Mathew and his parents drive into a parking
lot. They get out of there car.
School never taught us how to cope
with certain things, nor did they
do a very good job at seeing a
problem and take the time to talk
to you. They just seemed to have a
mindset to teach, but never to take
the time to love the child and his
differences. They also never took
the time to find out why they
changed their daily routine, and
acted the way they did.
They walk to the banks doors. Mathew grabs the door handle.
I always found it hard to talk to
anyone and, well, all I could focus
on is fixing things. I hated it
when I couldn’t figure something
out, but I never wanted help.
Mathew opens the door.
After time, and then more time, it
would come to me, and I would be
able to fix the problem.
His parents walk through the door.
It was either putting a computer
together or putting a car together
or taking it apart, depending on
what needed to be fixed.
Mathew walks in behind his parents.
Even so, I never seemed to be able
to fix my own life though, and
this, I hated.
INT. BANK – DAY
There are many people in the bank doing banking things.
I hated that life would go one way,
normally good for those around me,
and then, when things finally went
my way, I would hit a steel door.
Mathew and his parents go to a big table like structure with
deposit slips and pens.
I laughed at it because I could
take any sheet metal and form it
into whatever I wanted to with
these tools that school provided.
They fill out some slips. Then walk to a line.
This is how it would end; no kind
words could be said. Nothing would
change the outcome of this hell I
called my life.
INT. HOSPITAL – DAY
People are in the waiting room talking to each other.
I heard people say, “at least there
Mathew moves his mouth to one of the people in the room.
I wish I was the one who went
through hell, and either died or
life finally brought a great end.
Mathew walks up to a nurses station.
I couldn’t take it anymore, and I
just wanted someone to tell me what
the hell was going on.
Mathew starts to talk to the nurse at the station.
Were they still alive or did they
die? Just tell me. I wanted the
voice overhead to come on and tell
me some good news.
The nurse says something, but can’t be heard.
All I could hear was mumble. And as
far as the intercom, all I could
hear was static.
Mathew then asks the nurse.
Can you get a white coat to come in
and tell me anything.
The nurse gets on the phone.
I wanted any news any news would
ease my mind.
The nurse gets off the phone and shakes her head.
Ah, this was the sign I didn’t
want, I wanted a nod.
The nurse moves her lips as to say “that someone would come
to let you know when they know.”
But she said that one would come to
me when they knew something. My
mind still not at ease, and I was
ready to scream. I didn’t want to
close my eyes again for I didn’t
want to see those witches and
creatures again. I knew they would
return like a dog to its own vomit.
Mathew then asks the nurse for a aspirin.
I decided I would ask the nurse if
I could get something for the pain.
My head just throbbed as if one was
taking a hammer to my skull.
Mathew takes the aspirin from the nurse then walks back to a
or at least something to make me sleep even if it was in one
of these chairs that were stiff and uncomfortable. She was
able to get a white coat to agree to something for the pain;
I didn’t ask what it was I just took it.
A couple more hours went by…
We see a clock and it changes from time to a couple house
MATHEW (V.O.) (CONT’D)
…and finally, a white coat had an
answer for me. They had passed away
from their gunshot wounds, and I
now stood alone.
INT. BANK – DAY
Two masked men enter the bank shooting at the ceiling. They
then point there guns to all the customers.
At the beginning of this mess I
felt it was my fault for what
Mathews father charges one of the robbers.
I should have helped my dad take
down the thief; the one who took
the money from the bank and my
One of the robbers shoots his gun.
This I should have been the one to
die this day.
Mathew runs to his fathers body.
I was the one who ran to my
Mathew is shot by one of the robbers. Falls and hits his
…only to get hit by a flying
bullet, but I survived.
Mathews mother then runs to his body.
My mother came to my side only
Mathews mother is then shot.
…meet her end with the same gun
that just shot my father and me.
Even so, I ask why did it just
graze me and hit them?
The robbers run out of the store with no money.
I don’t know what I’m supposed to
do now, they were everything. They
were my life. Now, what am I living
People run out of the bank as police enter.
These stupid clichés came to mind.
I was done. I wanted to see them
for the last time, even if it was
there cold lifeless bodies.
The paramedic enter.
I wanted to hold them and kiss them
one last time, before…
INT. HOSPITAL MORGUE – DAY
Mathew is in between his parents dead bodies as they are the
…before; they were put in the
ground. I closed my eyes to cry.
Images of demon, and witches come to his mind.
He opens his eyes, but he is tired.
INT. HOUSE – DAY
Mathew walks in the door and walks to the couch and closes
After 24hrs in the ER, trying to
sleep only to see the creatures and
witches. This time the creatures
grabbed at me only to catch me and
pull me down from the air. The
witches that were showing off their
pubic hair, joined in and their
flesh just melted away as the
creatures tore at me and ripped me
Mathew wakes up in a cold sweat.
What evil do I have in my mind,
what evil is in my heart?
He sits up and wipes his forehead.
Will this evil consume my last
sliver of goodness? You tell me.
Why are you so quiet? Do you not
have a tongue to tell me what’s on
your mind? Tell me what the hell is
going on with my mind!
INT. HOUSE – NIGHT
In the house it is dimly lit. Blood everywhere a couple
bodies can be see. We then see a close up of a tongue. Then
a woman’s body.
I guess you can’t since you lay
before me. Your tongue lay on the
ground next to your lifeless and
Mathew’s hands are bloody and there is a woman’s face in his
I might have just gone insane.
Hahah I think I’m insane. No maybe
you’re the one insane.
Puts the woman’s face up to his.
Oh, you have such a very pretty
face. Haha in my hand. You are the
evil creature! You are the witch!
