EXT. CAFÉ Parking Lot - NIGHT HEAVY THUNDERSTORM
Lightning flickers across the nearly desolate parking lot in front of the Angelo’s Angelic American Coffie Café. The lightning flashes again, and a silhouette of a hunched forward figure, clothed in faded blue ripped jeans and a black hoodie can be seen casually sauntering toward the entrance of the café. As the figure draws closer, there is another lightning flash that exposes the mysterious figure’s face, showing its slight tinge of red, topped with horn stubbs protruding from his head. The figure, or the DEMON’s face is twisted in a sinister sneer as he slowly opens the glass doors revealing a cheerful café interior.
INT. CAFÉ ORDER LINE - NIGHT HEAVY THUNDERSTORM
The DEMON, steps into the café, water steaming off his hoodie. He slowly drifted to the empty ordering line. The Angel, wearing a simple white uniform and a helo can be seeb serving as a cashier. As the Demon pulls off his hoodie, the ANGEL, serving a couple, suddenly recognizes the Demon by his horns on his head, and shows a flash of surprise and anger on her face. In the background, you can see a MAN wearing a brown fedora and an oversized brown coat, meander slowly toward the ordering line. Also visible in the background is a SPECTRAL HUNTER in a dark trench coat wearing a bowler hat, stweing in the corner while drinking a dark coffie, face unsceen.
(Casually as he rifts through his wallet)
Can I get two espressos, and a BLT to go?
Is that all? Can I get you a knuckle
sandwich to go as well? How about I
give you back some of the destruction
you gave to my boss?
(In a babyish voice; mockery)
I’m sorry, did I hurt your feelings? Should I
go to the pharmacy to get you some Bandaids for
your boo-boo? Besides, you were less than civil
to my boss.
What, cat got your tounge?
How dare you! You were the one who
said that we shouldn’t let our jobs
get in the way of our relationship!
(Casually holds out credit card)
I don’t remember that. However I do
remember you hexing me for a full year
to become a frog. The scary thing is
That the only way I got out was because
a little girl decided to kiss me.
(smirking in fond memories)
That was great, but still, I did it
because you decided to curse me to
eternal sleep until some random guy
decided to kiss me. That was horrible
(Walks up behind the devil in the line)
I’m sorry, I don't mean to interrupt, but
can I order something really quick?
(Takes off fedora)
I’m in a little hurry.
ANGEL & DEMON
No, Shut up!
(Tilts head up, red glowing eyes visible)
(Deep raspy voice)
Why do you have to be such a jerk?
Just because you work for one doesn’t
mean you have to be one. Besides what
happened to us? We used to be the most
powerfull spirits of the land
Just because you work for a goody
two-shoes doesn’t mean you have to be one.
(Over the din of machines in the back)
I heard that!
Aren’t there other cafés to terrorize?
I mean, this isn’t the only café in
the entire world. I heard that Mcdonald's
next door has tasty and cheap coffee.
Well, I mean, this is the only café you
work for, and besides it's no fun to mess
around with other cafés. Most humans faint
within five minutes of seeing me, and anyway…
Can I just order my food really fast?
I promise it won’t take long.
(Finises with drink, starts stroking
chin and muttering to self)
Easy pickings, I like it. How much of a
price would ya’ think I could get for their
heads on a stick?
(Glowing with rage)
Just shut up! I swear I’ll rip out
your entrails the next time you speak!
(In timid agreement)
I don’t get annoyed by much, but
you are getting on my nerves.
(Mutters under breath)
Humans these days, always thinking
they are better than us spectrals.
(Pauses while thinking)
You know what, I have some free time.
Ripping out someone's intestines sounds
(Shouts to boss O.S.)
Hey, boss, I’m taking a break!
(Waits for an answer)
(Turns off machines)
Alright, have fun, but don’t take
longer than fifteen minutes!
(With a devilish grin to her boss)
Sure thing boss.
You get a thirty second head start.
(With a smirk to the ANGEL)
(Turns and runs away while sobbing)
Please don’t hurt me.
EXT. CAFÉ PARKING LOT - NIGHT - Clear Weather, stars visible
The ANGEL can be sceen running with the DEMON after the MAN. The man gets into his car and drives away, accidentally scraping a car in his hurry. The angel slows to a stop, holding the demon’s hand. Both of them look at their conjoined hands for an awkward moment, before glancing away at their shoes and remove their hands. Suddenly the rain starts all over again as they remove their hands. As the SPECTRAL HUNTER leaves the café and starts walking with purpose toward the confused angel and demon, the rain stops in place, and hangs in the air.
(With panic in her voice)
What just happened? The rain is just
Floating in the air!
He’s here again.
(Sighs, slowly turns around to face
the Spectral Hunter)
(With confusion in her voice)
(Spins very quickly, pales in fear)
(To Spectral Hunter)
(Reaches Angel and Demon, stops
to a standstill, head of pure
darkness is seen)
Me, except this time I’ll claim your heads,
not just your parents’.
(With anger and fear in voice)
You took our parents and left us to rot.
Isn’t that enough pain and suffering for
Sorry, missus, just doing my job. And
besides, who wouldn’t end two teenagers
for a great sum of three million dollars?
Do you know what you could get with that
Money? Mortals will do basically anything
For a penny now adays.
You used to be one of our dad’s best
Why would you back stab your best friend’s
Your family had a twelve million dollar
Bounty on your head. I already have
collected 6 million from your mother and
father. Once I’m done with you two, I will
have my full twelve million dollars to
spend with my own pleasure. Besides, your
father and mother were dead after they both
decided to get married. The ancient Taboos
that have lasted more than a millenium were
Broken, and that wasn’t even the worst of it.
They decided to have you two, breaking them
All over again.
Even if I hadn’t released their souls,
someone else would have.
Who would do this anyway? Our family friends
have always been great to us.
(Clears throat expectantly, to Angel)
What about the man in front of us?
(With a chuckle)
The people who sentenced your family to
this wretched fate are your bosses.
ANGEL & DEMON
It’s the only thing those two could agree
on in a millennium.
That explains why he finally gave you a
break from all of these years.
Anyhow, enough talk.
(Pulls out red glowing magical
It will be very quick process.
(Aims revolvers at Angel
Just like your parents.
(Shuts eyes forcefully)
You don’t have to do this!
Oh, but I do.
Several things happened at once. As the magicall lasers drew closer to the two spirits, the ANGEL released a buble of black energy that struck the SPECTRAL HUNTER. As he flew back, the DEMON released a white energy buble that protected the two from the red lasers.
(incredelous as he slowly climbs to his feet)
It can’t be! A demon and an angel had
two hybrid children! This has never
(picks up revolver lying near him)
No matter, I’ll end you two, regardless.
I have never been good at channeling
pure energy. I never realized mom was
(Looking at his hands in wonder)
This explains a lot. I never realized
dad was an angel either.
Good bye Angel and Demon.
(Pulls trigger again)
(with fear and surprise)
ANGEL jumps and takes the shot for DEMON
(Turns around in surprise)
DEMON checks ANGEL’s pulse
(To SPECTRAL HUNTER)
How could you do this?
At leat I have nine million now.
Suddenly, the parking lot is destroied as black energy expands from ANGEL’s limp body
(Running away from expanding energy)
The SPECTRAL HUNTER is sucked into the dark void, and the blackness dissapears revealing DEMON and a healthy ANGEL.
(Wipes a single tear away)
Huh? What just hapened?
(Friendly punches Demon in the shoulder)
Didn’t you forgot you have pure energy
that promotes peace, and heals leathal wounds?
(With a friendly smirk)
What, cat got your tounge?
