INT. IRELAND - THE SEELIE COURT'S THRONE ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
A crowd has gathered for the sentencing of Barram O'
Callaghan.
                                                            
                       KING OBERON
I hereby curse thee with only
seeing death. Every male in thy
family will be cursed for thy
crimes of working with the
Unseelie court to murder the royal
family.
                                                            
 
EXT. YEARS LATER - CENTRAL PARK NEW YORK - DAY
                                                            
Carter O'Callaghan is sitting by the Betheseda fountain of
life. Frustrated by seeing death, he tries to think of a way
to get rid of it when a beautiful girl walks up to him.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
May I sit down?
                                                            
Carter nods
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
I love it here, so many people
with different stories. I'm
Elsieana Travelant and you?
                                                            
                       CARTER
Carter O'Callaghan.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
Wow, very Irish. That's awesome.
Would you like to take a walk with
me?
                                                            
                       CARTER
I would love too.
                                                            
They stand and walk down a path in the park. Elsieana turns
to Carter.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
Can I show you something?
                                                            
Carter nods and Elsieana grabs his hand and pulls him off
the path stopping when she reaches a bush. Elsieana points
to a birds nest with three eggs in it. Carter is puzzled by
this. The first egg starts to crack and Elsieana gasps.
                                                            

2.

                       ELSIEANA
Isn't life beautiful?
                                                            
                       CARTER
I suppose so.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
What's that suppose to mean?
                                                            
                       CARTER
Just that life always ends in
death.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
Yes, but you can have an amazing
life before you die.
                                                            
Carter shrugs his shoulders.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
That's a very depressing view of
the world.
                                                            
                       CARTER
I see a lot of sadness.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
Would you give me the chance to
change it? Meet me at Orlando's at
7:00 do you know it?
                                                            
Carter cocks his head and smiles.
                                                            
                       CARTER
I'll give you the chance but
there's not much you can do.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
As long as I get to show you life
through my eyes it'll be worth it.
                                                            
Elsieana walks away and Carter walks toward the fountain but
stops when he see a vision of Elsieana gasping for breath as
she lies dying.
                                                            
 
EXT. CENTRAL PARK - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Carter is sitting on a bench upset by what he saw and
debating whether to go tonight when an older man sits
besides him.
                                                            

3.

                       OLDER MAN
Life is short. If you want
something go get it. Don't waste
time thinking take chances and
live life.
                                                            
Carter angry now,turns to the man but no one is there.
Carter looks around but can't see where he has gone. He
thinks on what the man had said and decides to go to
Orlando's.
                                                            
 
INT. ORLANDO'S - 6:30 - NIGHT
                                                            
Carter is at a table waiting when a young man sits down
across from him.
                                                            
                       MADOC
Deep in thought are we?
                                                            
Carter does not reply.
                                                            
                       MADOC
Listen, Carter I'm going to jump
right into it.
                                                            
Carter looks up, surprised.
                                                            
                       CARTER
What is it?
                                                            
                       MADOC
The Court would like to remove the
curse put on you. All you have to
do is kill the heir to the Seelie
court and the Unseelie will rule.
                                                            
                       CARTER
No.
                                                            
                       MADOC
Excuse me?
                                                            
                       CARTER
That's how the curse was put on my
family and I'll have no part in
it.
                                                            
                       MADOC
Now listen here it'll be simple.
                                                            
                       CARTER
No, find someone else.
                                                            

4.

                       MADOC
You're making a huge mistake.
                                                            
Madoc gets up and leaves. A few minutes later Elsieana walks
in and takes his place. She smiles.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
Hi.
                                                            
                       CARTER
Hi, you look wonderful.
                                                            
Elsieana looks down and blushes. A waitress approaches and
sets two milkshakes down in front of them.
                                                            
                       CARTER
We haven't ordered yet.
                                                            
Elsieana picks up the shake and begins to drink. Carter
catches Madoc's eye as Madoc he is leaving. Carter reaches
and pulls the shake from Elsieana. She gasps for breath and
falls to the floor. Carter catches her, she tries to speak
to him but she closes her eyes. Knowing she has been
poisoned Carter rushes her out the door to the only place
that might save her.
                                                            
 
EXT. CENTRAL PARK - BETHESEDA FOUNTAIN - NIGHT
                                                            
Carter sets Elsieana down and begins to bring water from the
fountain to her with his hands. Madoc arrives.
                                                            
                       MADOC
Do you even know who she is?
                                                            
                       CARTER
Does it matter? She's dying.
                                                            
                       MADOC
Just doing what you wouldn't.
                                                            
                       CARTER
What?
                                                            
                       MADOC
She's Princess Elsieana, heir to
the Seelie court and soon she'll
be dead. The Unseelie will rule
and you, Carter, will be the first
to die.
                                                            
Carter continues to give water to her.
                                                            

5.

                       MADOC
Do you really think that's going
to work? Nothing can save her.
                                                            
Carter gets up to face Madoc when a bright light flashes,it
clears and Madoc is gone but in his place is an older man.
Carter recognizes him as the man who spoke to him earlier.
Elsieana coughs, looks up to Carter and smiles.
                                                            
                       CARTER
Your the guy who spoke to me
today. You wanted to make sure I'd
come. Was this a test?
                                                            
                       KING OBERON
No I had suspicions of what Madoc
was planning but the laws prevent
me from stepping in.
                                                            
King Oberon walks to Elsieana and bends down.
                                                            
                       KING OBERON
Helloe El, how are you feeling?
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
Better.
                                                            
                       KING OBERON
Carter O'Callaghan. You saved my
granddaughter and for that I am
grateful.I remove the curse I put
on your family and instead give
you the ability to heal.
                                                            
                       CARTER
Thank you. What about Madoc? We
have to stop him.
                                                            
                       KING OBERON
We will but right now I think we
should get reacquainted.
                                                            
Elsieana turns to Carter and smiles.
                                                            
                       ELSIEANA
I told you life could be
wonderful.
                                                            
Carter sits down beside her and looks at her.
                                                            
                       CARTER
Yes, life can be wonderful.
