PANEL 1

A house and open fields are shown.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

YOU KNOW HOW PEOPLE SAY THAT THINGS HAPPENING IN MOVIES OR COMICS DON’T HAPPEN IN REALITY, WHILE THINGS IN THE REAL WORLD IS PRETTY MUCH PREDICTABLE TO A POINT WHEN IT COMES TO REALITY?


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

IT’S LIKE EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE CAN BE SENT TO SPACE AND BE CLONED TODAY WHICH GUYS FROM LONG AGO WOULD SAY COULD NOT HAPPEN IN THE REAL WORLD, THERE’S STILL THINGS MOST PEOPLE REFUSE TO BELIEVE IS POSSIBLE TO EVER HAPPENING.


PANEL 2

A teenage girl name Lisa is walking in town where there are stores. She notices one that looks like an antique store. She has a bracelet on her right arm.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

OH, BY THE WAY, MY NAME IS LISA.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

AS I WAS SAYING, I WAS WALKING AROUND TOWN AND NOTICE WHAT LOOKED LIKE AN ANTIQUE STORE.... NOT EXACTLY A BREAKING OF THE SPACE/TIME CONTINUUM THERE.... AND DECIDED TO CHECK IT OUT SINCE IT WAS NEW.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

NORMAL AND LEGAL.


PANEL 3

The teenage girl is now inside the antique store. It’s filled with odd-looking antiques that are placed around like a storage room.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

I HAD TO ADMIT THAT THE STUFF THEY HAD IN HERE WAS REALLY STRANGE.


PANEL 4

A strange old woman is shown who runs the place.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

AND THE OWNER WAS EVEN STRANGER.


OLD WOMAN (mysterious and a bit strange)

HOW MAY I HELP YOU, CHILD?


OLD WOMAN (mysterious and a bit strange)

AS YOU CAN SEE I HAVE MANY ODDITIES THAT MAY INTEREST YOU AND PERHAPS BRING WONDER TO YOUR LIFE.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

YEAH, REALLY STRANGE.

PANEL 1

The teenage girl leaves the antique store with a sack.

TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

WEIRD, HUH?


PANEL 2

The teenage girl is walking towards the house from the beginning of the story and the sun is about to set.

HOME, SWEET HOME.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box and sarcasm)

HOME OF MY MOTHER AND “WELL-LOVED” STEP-FATHER.


PANEL 3

The girl’s step-father is shown and looks disapproving. Her mother is shown in the background and looks a little frightened.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown, sarcasm, and word box)

I USED TO TRY TO LIVE UP TO HIS EXPECTATIONS UNTIL I REALIZED THAT HE ONLY “EXPECTED” ME TO BE AROUND FOR HIM TO WHINE AT.


STEP-FATHER (grumpy)

WHERE YOU’VE BEEN?


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown)

AROUND, IT’S NOT LIKE YOU CAN GO FAR IN A TOWN THIS SMALL.


STEP-FATHER (grumpy)

DON’T GET SASSY WITH ME, GIRL.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

WHAT.... A..... JERK!


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

OH, BY THE WAY, THAT WOMAN IN THE BACK WAS MY MOTHER, MY REAL ONE, WHO THOUGHT STANDING BY HER MAN WAS MEANT TO KEEP WHATEVER OPINIONS SHE HAD TO HERSELF.

The teenage girl is now in her room.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

I COULDN’T WAIT TO GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL AND LEAVE THIS DUMP.


PANEL 5

The teenage girl’s hands are shown taking out a fancy-looking hand mirror from the sack.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

I THOUGHT THIS WOULD PROBABLY CHEER ME UP.




PAGE 3


PANEL 1

The teenage girl’s face is shown on the mirror. The hand mirror has a beautiful design and looks like it’s made out of gold.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

I STILL COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS COSTED LIKE FIVE BUCKS.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

SEEING NO PIMPLES SEEMED TO ALSO CHEER ME UP.


PANEL 2

The teenage girl is on her bed and forgot to change her clothes. The lights are off but there is still some light from the moonlight.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

IT WAS TIME TO GO TO BED AND BE READY FOR ANOTHER BORING AND UNEVENTFUL DAY, WHICH IS PROBABLY WHY I DIDN’T BOTHER TO REMEMBER TO CHANGE CLOTHES.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

OR SO I THOUGHT....


PANEL 3

Someone who looks like the teenage girl, but is covered in shadows is in the hallway. She is giggling. Her body is posing in a way that says “Let the good times begin!”


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

AND IRONICALLY WISHED WHEN THAT “EVENT” ACTUALLY HAPPENED IN THE WORST WAY.


PANEL 4

The duplicate is wearing the same bracelet that the teenage girl is wearing, but on the left arm. The hand that’s attached to that arm is carrying a kitchen knife. She is still giggling.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

THAT “CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR” SAYING IS SO UNFAIR.


PANEL 5

A closer look at the grin of the duplicate’s.


DUPLICATE (grin only shown, crazy, evil, sarcasm, and cool)

LORD, WHY MUST I DO SUCH HORRIBLE THINGS, WHILE FEELING SO DAMN GOOD ABOUT IT?


PANEL 6

As if looking thru the eyes of the duplicate, she opens the door to the parents’ room. It’s dark and the parents are sleeping. The duplicate’s arm that has the knife is shown pushing the door.

OH’ DADDY DEAREST?

MOTHER (scared)

LISA, WHAT ARE....?!


STEP-FATHER (startled and angry)

WHAT THE $#%# DO YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING?!


STEP-FATHER (startled and angry)

YOU BETTER PUT THAT DOWN UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET TWICE THE BEATING THAT YOU’RE GOING TO GET RIGHT NOW!


STEP-FATHER (angry and direct)

YOU MIND ME, GIRL!


PANEL 2

The knife is shown in front of the duplicate and the reflection of the scared parents are somewhat shown on the knife. The duplicate is shown behind, and aside, the knife, but shadow mostly covers her to make her look mysterious and the eyes, which look somewhat demonic, and grin in shown.


DUPLICATE (crazy and evil)

UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, NO.

The real teenage girl dramatically wakes up and gets up after hearing her parents’ scream in terror from across the hallway!


TEENAGE GIRL (startled)

WHA....?!


PANEL 4

The teenage girl’s head is shown looking out from her bedroom. A mad woman’s laughter is heard from her parent’s bedroom. She looks scared.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

WHEN A PERSON SAYS THAT HE, OR SHE, WANTS SOME EXCITEMENT IN THEIR LIVES, IT DOESN’T MEAN IT INCLUDES EVERYTHING.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

THERE’S LIMITS TO WHAT A PERSON WOULD DO OR WANT TO EXPERIENCE.


PANEL 5

As if seeing thru the teenage girl’s eyes, she heads towards the door to her parent’s bedroom.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

AND THIS IS DEFIANTLY ONE OF THEM.


TEENAGE GIRL (scared and nervous)

MOM?


PANEL 6

The teenage girl’s hand is shown opening the door.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

YOU WOULD THINK I WOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER AFTER WATCHING THOSE 80'S SLASHER MOVIES.


TEENAGER GIRL (scared, nervous, and hand only shown)

ARE YOU OK?





PAGE 5

Suddenly, the teenage girl is pulled in her parents’ bedroom by an arm that grabs her!


TEENAGE GIRL (surprised and somewhat loud)

HEY!


PANEL 2

The teenage girl is on the floor and has a face filled with shock as she sees something terrible.


TEENAGE GIRL (word box)

YEAH, YOU TELL THE DUMB PEOPLE IN THOSE MOVIES NOT TO GO THERE, BUT YOU END UP DOING THE SAME THING.


PANEL 3

The teenage girl’s parents have been stabbed to death while still in their bed!


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and shocked)

MOM!.... NO!


PANEL 4

Part of the teenage girl’s face is shown and she sees the killer and she looks like her, but has a crazy look in her eyes and insane grin! The killer has blood on her!


DUPLICATE (crazy, evil, and sarcasm)

AFTER WHAT HAPPENED HERE IT KIND OF MAKES IT HARD TO LOOK AT YOURSELF AND NOT FEEL DISGUSTED, DOESN’T IT?


PANEL 5

The duplicate has an even crazier look as she has her knife in front of her. A knife that’s held by her left hand that has the bracelet. She gives out a crazy laugh!


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

I SHOULD HAVE DONE THE SMART THING AND RUN OUT OF THE HOUSE, BUT HOW WAS I TO KNOW SOMETHING LIKE THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

IT’S NOT EXACTLY SOMETHING THAT WOULD HAPPEN IN THE REAL WORLD.




PAGE 6


PANEL 1

Police cars and officers are outside the house. Painted on the house are the words “LIFE’S A BITCH AND SO AM I!”.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

YOU CAN PROBABLY GUESS WHAT THE POLICE WAS THINKING WHEN THEY ARRIVED.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

SHE SNAPPED BECAUSE SHE’S A SPOILED SNOT-NOSED STUPID KID WITH NO RESPECT FOR ANYONE OR ANY CARE FOR HER FUTURE.


PANEL 2

The duplicate, who the authorities think is the real dea,l is hand-cuffed from behind and still has that crazy look on her face.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

SOME OF THEM WOULD PROBABLY SAY THAT THIS PROVES THAT KIDS NEED TO BE LOCKED UP UNTIL THEY’RE 3O.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

THAT ALL KIDS UNDER 21 ARE CRIMINALS AND KILLERS TO MAKE IT EASY.


PANEL 3 

The handcuffed and crazed duplicate scares a cop by moving her head towards him! The cop in charge is about to pull her back. At the end the duplicate laughs.


DUPLICATE (crazy, evil, and direct)

RAGH!


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

I BELIEVE THEY WOULD SAY ANYTHING THAT FITS TO WHAT IS CONSIDERED NORMAL THESE DAYS.


PANEL 4

Inside the teenage girl’s room, police officers and a guy in a tie and suit is searching for evidence. The guy in the trench coat has the hand mirror but has a handkerchief to prevent ruining any fingerprints. The guy in a trench coat has a wart on his left cheek.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

BUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF SOMETHING CAME OUT OF THE OPEN THAT WENT AGAINST THOSE BELIEFS?


GUY IN TIE AND SUIT (focused)

SO WHO WAS THE ONE WHO CALLED THIS IN?


ONE OF THE OFFICERS (a little nervous)

UM, IT WAS THE KILLER, SIR.


GUY IN TIE AND SUIT (low tone and in disbelief)

AH’ JEEZ.



PANEL 5

The duplicate is shown in the backseat of a police car and is looking out of the window with a crazy look.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

HOW WOULD THEY USE LOGIC TO EXPLAIN AWAY WHAT THEY SEE AND HEAR, BUT STILL DON’T BELIEVE?


ONE OF THE OFFICERS (partly shown and slightly in disbelief)

I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE LISA WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS.


ANOTHER OFFICER (partly shown)

YEAH, WELL SHE DID, AND SHE’LL NO DOUBT WILL BE LOCKED AWAY IN SOME LOONEY BIN BECAUSE OF IT.


PANEL 6

The guy in the trench coat’s reflection is shown on the hand mirror.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

HOW WOULD THEY EDIT IT TO BECOME THAT OF A NORMAL SENSE AND NOT CALL IT DENIAL?

____________________________________________________________________________

PANEL 1

The police car with the duplicate is shown driving away. A mad woman’s laughter is heard.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

ANSWER.... THEY CAN’T.


DRIVER (not shown and annoyed)

GOD! I WISH SHE WOULD SHUT THE HELL UP ALREADY!


PANEL 2

As if looking from the back seat, the driver and other police officer turn their heads in confusion. The laughter of madness continues.


THE OTHER OFFICER IN THE CAR (confused)

HEY, DID HER VOICE JUST CHANGE?


DRIVER (a little shock)

OH’ $#%#.


PANEL 3

In the back seat is a duplicate of the guy in the suit and tie but the wart is on the right cheek. He has that same crazy look and is laughing like a madman!



TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

NO MATTER HOW HARD THEY TRY.


PANEL 4

Back to the house and focused a bit more on the back yard. Something seems to be poorly buried there.


TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

TEENAGE GIRL (not shown and word box)

I’M TELLING YOU ALL THIS WHILE I’M BEING....

DEAD.
