DOWN A DARK PATH

©Zig Bingham

A Work in Progress.  First Draft Released as Written Every Wednesday.

 

INT. THE DARK APARTMENT – DAY
We open on feet. Bare Male feet.

POV of someone looking at his own feet.

And for a while that’s all we see.

CUT TO:

MONTAGE.
CU cutaways of a couple having sex. Heaving breathing. Passion. Blurry indistinct.

CUT TO:

INT. THE DARK APARTMENT – DAY
POV of the feet.

Occasionally the owner looks up enough to see the girl over the sink, her hands soaking in the sink far across the room.

For one moment we take a long look at the girl’s studying her apparent trying to figure out what’s going on she turns and…

CUT TO:

MONTAGE.
Close ups. Mere impressions of hands across bare flesh. The sounds of young love making out.

CUT TO:

EXT. THE DARK APARTMENT – DAY
POV. She looks at us for a while before slowly making her way over and we look away. The heavy hum of a dying air-con unit increases mechanical breathing echoing the claustrophobic camera work.

She is half hidden in the shadows but we see her legs as she walks towards us then stops unsure where our personal space begins and ends.

She keeps her distance a little.

Unsure how to play this.

Waiting for us to look up.

Eventually we do and we see that the young woman, May has been crying.

CUT TO:

MONTAGE.
The couple’s love making gets more intense. More passionate. The camerawork reveals the tenderness and love between the two rather than the act.

CUT TO:

INT. THE DARK APARTMENT – DAY
POV.
MAY holds herself in a way that belies her 18 years but shows that she really cares for us.

She’s strong.

But we are passengers in someone else’s trip and he can’t see that right now.

She wipes the tears way and bends down.

We can’t yet hear what she is saying but along with the air -con seeming getting louder as we hear our own breathing and heart beat. Nervous. Unsure.

She reaches out…

CUT TO:

MONTAGE.
A young woman’s hand reaches out and slides down the young man’s abs and down to his crotch.

He is nervous. She his rock.

Both set of lips breathe into each other barely touching in anticipation of the woman’s cool grip.

CUT TO:

INT. THE DARK APARTMENT – DAY
No longer in POV we assume the view of spectator and we now see May trying to reconnect with the 20 year old TOMMY.

He looks down at his feet unable to look up.

She removes her hand and for a moment she crouches there.

For a moment we cut back to Tommy’s POV still looking down he is too ashamed to look at her.

The distance grows colder.

CUT TO:

MONTAGE.
The passion and heat rises. She giggles. He acts macho and grabs her in tight.
She starts to stroke him.

He grabs her throat and she responds like it’s the greatest thing in the world.

CUT TO:

INT. THE DARK APARTMENT – DAY.
She pulls away and walks around the dark apartment collecting her shit.
Tommy looks on making no effort to seal the breach between them.

MAY
I guess I’ll see you at the party?

She stands in the doorway her plain dress and colourful high tops silhouetted in the doorway.

CUT TO:

MONTAGE.
She stops and the passion evaporates.

Who is the more embarrassed is hard to tell.

But she is sympathetic.

He is defensive.

She leans in and tries again to ignite his flame, but he pushes her away.

CUT TO:

INT. THE DARK APARTMENT – DAY
POV.

MAY
I love you baby.

And we still say nothing.

We just look away.

To the corner of the room.

To the corner of this Dark apartment.

And she is gone.

And we are alone.

Except for the dark corner.

CUT TO:

MONTAGE.
CU of the Tommy’s eyes staring into the corner of the room.

Deep Fear. Terrifying fear.

MAY
I love you baby.

The kid gets up and pushes past May and walks toward the corner.

CUT TO:

INT. THE DARK APARTMENT – DAY
As he walks we now CUT from the our POV to a WIDE of an empty room and the Kid as he slowly approaches the corner of the room.

WE SEE that we are in fact in a POV of the dark corner. We are the eyes hidden in the dark.

He approaches us.

Slowly. So very slowly.

CUT TO:

MONTAGE.
WIDE ON the young man walking away from the bed, her hand tries to stop him but he keeps moving, pulling away.

CUT TO:

INT. THE DARK APARTMENT – DAY
He approaches the dark corner.

He approaches us.

The time it takes is uncomfortable.

He looks right at us, into us.

Fear and unsatiated curiosity.

But still it takes too long.

And he creeps toward us until he is close enough to reach out and touch the screen from the inside, the divide between us and him.

He reaches out to touch us…

CUT TO:

MONTAGE.
She gently kisses him. Trying to make him better.

The kisses are of love.

But he doesn’t see that, he just see’s something in the corner of the room.

A shape.

And then it’s gone.

And from our vantage point we observe.

For far too long.

TITLES: Down a Dark Path.

FADE OUT.

Final page of my first sketchbook. A New Year's resolution that I didn't take seriously til March nonetheless took me all this time to finish. Didnt do anything for a few months then got fired up and did the other  half of it in the last couple of months. Very happy at the progress too and loving the process. 
My take on a couple of panels from issue 18 of #justiceleague international from writers Giffen and DeMattis and #dccomics . This is my personal favourite take on JLI. The humour was great and took the piss out of the whole Superhero mythos with a loving wink.
