AReallyShortStory

(Credits come and go)

A tear on a cheek
ScEnE ChAnGeS
The sound of feet shuffling behind a closed door. muffled voices.
ScEnE ChAnGeS
A gun is placed on a table. Solitary lamp over table illuminates whole room.
ScEnE ChAnGeS
Show the wall. A car passes by, throwing weird patterns of the window grating on it. Slowly turn camera until it shows the left half of MAN's face.


MAN: You've got to be kidding me. Is this fear you're showing me? I don't believe you know what that word means anymore. Care to explain yourself?

(silent pause)

ScEnE ChAnGeS
The door of the room from outside. Slowly zoom out. Muffled voices puncture what's otherwise a perfectly silent night.
Then, two gun shots. The sound of something heavy hits the floor. Keep zooming out until...

THE END.

Put a man up in a tree. Throw stones at the man. Bring him down. Remember?

The tree is supposed to be metaphorical. I'm not sure I'd approve of a deranged couple running around it.

PS- I DO want to know. Especially someone who does the whole ManyWordsInOneWord thing. I can relate.
