ext. suburban street -morning

Jackalai - on 02/08/2012

KEVIN (9) watches BRANDON (10) walk away with his lunch money. He rubs his stomach, where he received a vicious kick moments earlier. He collects the scattered objects that fell from his Jr. Magician Magic Kit: wands, cards, cups, etc.

(walking away) Thanks for the five bucks!

His walking-buddy SARAH (9) puts her hand on his shoulder and tries to comfort him. He recoils and moves away.

Sarah plays with other kids at recess. She looks into the window and sees Kevin talking to a teacher inside the classroom. Kevin's head is hung down, defeated.

A minute later Kevin comes out the door and out onto the playground. Sarah walks up to him.

Kevin

She didn't believe me.

Kevin sits down on the steps and rests his head in his hands. Sarah sits next to him, not sure what to do.

After a long moment, Kevin raises his head, a hopeful look on his face. Sarah looks at him expectantly. He stands up and pulls his magician's wand out of his pocket.

END MONTAGE:

The bully Brandon and some of his cronies push their way to the front of the crowd, sneers on their faces.

Kevin (CONT'D)

And now, ladies and gentlemen, for my final illusion. I will need a volunteer who's not afraid of anything.

Brandon forces his way up on to the "stage" and stands defiantly in front of Kevin.

I'm not afraid of anything!

Kevin smiles.

Kevin

I'm about to make something disappear. Do you happen to have a five dollar bill...?
