…two years later…

EXTREME CLOSE-UP: A human eye, opening suddenly. The camera pulls back to reveal X, lying down on the ground.

X

What happened? Am I… am I back… on the Island? Oh gods, no! I can’t take the… where the hell am I?

CUT: A bare foot kicks X in the ribs. A female voice speaks. It is his wife, COOTIE.

COOTIE

Get up, doofus. Help me unpack.

CUT: X, still sleepy, gets up and staggers about the room.

X

So this is… are we… home?

CUT: Cootie, who smiles and takes a sip of sangria.

COOTIE

Darlin’, home is wherever you are. But if you’re talking about the new apartment, then yes, we’re home.

X

Are we in New Otherton?

COOTIE approaches X with a box cutter.

COOTIE

Stop it. Now get some boxes empty before I cut you. Ain’t nothin’ to me to cut a bitch.

CUT: X stumbles out onto the balcony, which overlooks a busy Knoxville road.

X (screaming)

WALT! WALTER! WAAAAAAAAAAAALT!

End scene.

Roll opening credits.

    • Hi, Ali!
      I was just thinking about you! Somehow I missed the news of which website you are currently Night Editor for and I saw your name on their masthead. Congratulations!
      How are you?
