The Time we fought a dragon

INT. RAVENPASS - AFTERNOON

Private Detective, KYLA HERTAL is arguing with Private Detective, DAMIEN JOHNSON.KYLA tries to hug DAMIEN but he shakes her off.

KYLA

Please Damien, don't leave me.

DAMIEN

I'm sorry Kyla, but I'm looking for somebody a bit more brave. Somebody who faces her fears head on, instead of running away.

KYLA frowns.

DAMIEN frowns.

DAMIEN

I'm sorry, KYla. I just don't feel excited by this relationship anymore.

DAMIEN leaves.

KYLA sits down, looking defeated.

Moments later, brave scout, LELAND JOHNSON barges in looking flustered.

KYLA

Goodness, Leland! Is everything okay?

LELAND

I'm afraid not.

KYLA

What is it? Don't keep me in suspense...

LELAND

It's ... a dragon ... I saw an evil dragon eat a bunch of children!

KYLA

Defenseless children?

LELAND

Yes, defenseless children!

KYLA

Bloomin' heck, Leland ! We've got to do something.

LELAND

I agree, but I wouldn't know where to start.

KYLA

You can start by telling me where this happened.

LELAND

I was...

LELAND fans himself and begins to wheeze.

KYLA

Focus Leland , focus! Where did it happen?

LELAND

a supermarket! That's right - a supermarket!

KYLA springs up and begins to run.


EXT. A ROAD - CONTINUOUS


KYLA rushes along the street, followed by LELAND. They take a short cut through some back gardens, jumping fences along the way.


EXT. A SUPERMARKET - SHORTLY AFTER


GAVIN … an evil dragon terrorises two children.

KYLA, closely followed by LELAND, rushes towards GAVIN, but suddenly stops in her tracks.

LELAND

What is is? What's the matter?

KYLA

That's not just any old dragon, that's Gavin …!

LELAND

Who's Gavin …?

KYLA

Who's Gavin …? Who's Gavin …? Only the most evil dragon in the universe!

LELAND

Blinkin' knickers, Kyla! We're going to need some help if we're going to stop the most evil dragon in the universe!

KYLA

You can say that again.

KYLA

I'm going to need swords, lots of swords.

Gavin turns and sees Kyla and Leland. He grins an evil grin.

GAVIN

Kyla ..., we meet again.

LELAND

You've met?

KYLA

Yes. It was a long, long time ago...


EXT. A PARK - BACK IN TIME


A young KYLA is sitting in a park listening to some rock music, when suddenly a dark shadow casts over her.

She looks up and sees GAVIN. She takes off her headphones.

GAVIN

Would you like some candy?

KYLA's eyes light up, but then he studies GAVIN more closely, and looks uneasy.

KYLA

I don't know, you look kind of scary.

GAVIN

Me? No. I'm not scary. I’m the least scary dragon in the world.

KYLA

Wait, you're a dragon?

KYLA runs away, screaming.


EXT. A SUPERMARKET - PRESENT DAY


GAVIN

You were a coward then, and you are a coward now.

LELAND

(To KYLA) You ran away?

KYLA

(To LELAND) I was a young child. What was I supposed to do?

KYLA turns to GAVIN.

KYLA

I may have run away from you then, but I won't run away this time!

KYLA runs away.

She turns back and shouts.

KYLA

I mean, I am running away, but I'll be back - with swords.

GAVIN

I'm not scared of you.

KYLA

You should be.


EXT. A LIBRARY - LATER THAT DAY


KYLA and LELAND walk around searching for something.

KYLA

I feel sure I left my swords somewhere around here.

LELAND

Are you sure? It does seem like an odd place to keep deadly swords.

KYLA

You know nothing Leland ....

LELAND

We've been searching for ages. I really don't think they're here.

Suddenly, GAVIN appears, holding a pair of swords.

GAVIN

Looking for something?

LELAND

Crikey, Kyla, he's got your swords.

KYLA

Tell me something I don't already know!

LELAND

The earth's circumference at the equator is about 40,075 km.

KYLA

I know that already!

LELAND

I…love…you…

GAVIN

(appalled) Dude!

While GAVIN is looking at LELAND with disgust, KYLA lunges forward and grabs her deadly swords. She wields them, triumphantly.

KYLA

Prepare to die, you snotty sprout!

GAVIN

No please! All I did was eat a bunch of children!

DAMIEN enters, unseen by any of the others.

KYLA

I cannot tolerate that kind of behaviour! Those children were defenceless! Well now they have a defender - and that's me! Kyla ... defender of innocent children.

GAVIN

Don't hurt me! Please!

KYLA

Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t cut you head off right now!

GAVIN

Because Kyla, I am your best friend.

KYLA looks stunned for a few moments, but then collects herself.

KYLA

No you're not!

GAVIN

Ah well, it had to be worth a try.

GAVIN tries to grab the swords but KYLA dodges out of the way.

KYLA

Who’s the coward now? Huh? Huh?

Unexpectedly, GAVIN slumps to the ground.

LELAND

Did he just faint?

KYLA

I think so. Well that's disappointing. I was rather hoping for a more dramatic conclusion, involving my deadly swords.

KYLA crouches over GAVIN's body.

LELAND

Be careful, Kyla. It could be a trick.

KYLA

No, it's not a trick. It appears that... It would seem... Gavin … is dead!

KYLA

What?

KYLA

Yes, it appears that I scared him to death.

LELAND claps his hands.

LELAND

So your swords did save the day, after all.

DAMIEN steps forward.

DAMIEN

Is it true? Did you kill the evil dragon?

KYLA

Damien how long have you been...?

DAMIEN puts his arm around KYLA.

DAMIEN

Long enough.

KYLA

Then you saw it for yourself. I killed Gavin ….

DAMIEN

Then the children are safe?

KYLA

It does seem that way!

A crowd of vulnerable children enter, looking relived.

DAMIEN

You are their hero.

The children bow to KYLA.

KYLA

There is no need to bow to me. I seek no worship. The knowledge that Gavin … will never eat children ever again, is enough for me.

DAMIEN

You are humble as well as brave!

One of the children named, Izzy Hodgkins, passes KYLA a mystical ring

DAMIEN

I think they want you to have it, as a symbol of their gratitude.

KYLA

I couldn't possibly.

Pause.

KYLA

Well, if you insist.

KYLA takes the ring.

KYLA

Thank you.

The children bow their heads once more, and leave.

KYLA turns to DAMIEN.

KYLA

Does this mean you want me back?

DAMIEN

Oh, Kyla, of course I want you back!

KYLA smiles for a few seconds, but then looks defiant.

KYLA

Well you can't have me.

DAMIEN

WHAT?

KYLA

You had no faith in me. You had to see me scare a dragon to death before you would believe in me. I don't want a lover like that.

DAMIEN

But...

KYLA

Please leave. I want to spend time with the one person who stayed with me through thick and thin - my best friend, LEland.

LELAND grins.

DAMIEN

But...

LELAND

You heard the lady. Now be off with you. Skidaddle! Shoo!

DAMIEN

KYla?

KYLA

I'm sorry Damien, but I think you should skidaddle.

DAMIEN leaves.

LELAND turns to KYLA.

LELAND

Did you mean that? You know ... that I'm your best friend?

KYLA

Of course you are!

The two walk off arm in arm.

Suddenly LELAND stops.

LELAND

When I said I…love…you…, you know I was just trying to distract the dragon don't you?
