                       CURIOSITY
      (A somber tone)
What do I do?.... Where Do I
begin?....Where are you?....
                                                            
Curiosity slowly swings back and forth as he is curious to
know, then his friend Noah walks in carrying a bag of
Dr.Mickey sandwiches.
                                                            
                       NOAH
      (Beginning the
       conversation)
Still being curious I see.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (As he lets out a
       sigh)
I just don't know what I have to
do Noah. I don't even know when
its gonna hit me in the face and
relieve my confusion.
                                                            
Noah briefly looks at Jacob's state of mind and realizes the
situation he's in. He then puts is hand on his should and
says...
                                                            
                       NOAH
      (With Confidence)
It'll come to you..... It'll come
to you my curious friend.
                                                            
Curiosity (narrator): Yea so as you can tell...I've got a
problem. I don't know why I started it in the first place or
how I'm gonna find the solution, but I gotta be hopeful...
hopeful that i find a story for my novel.

sweeping up the floor. She notices his entrance.
                                                            

2.

                       SUE
      (Happily)
So how was your jog dear?
                                                            
Curiosity opens the refrigerator and pulls out a cold bottle
of water as he is breathing heavily from the jog home.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (Rapidly)
It was good, I saw Noah while I
was jogging.
                                                            
                       SUE
Oh yea.. Did he say "hi" to you
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
Yea,, we said hi to each other and
we began talking. He asked me how
my story was going.
                                                            
The room fell silent after that little conversation. Not one
of the two knew what to say to each other but exchange
awkward glances.Curiosity then begins to walk to his room
                                                            
                       SUE
      (suddenly and
       concerned)
Do you want anything to eat dear?
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
No thanks, Noah bought Dr.Mickey
sandwiches and offered me some.
                                                            
Shortly Susan Brown walks over to the refrigerator door,
only to look at a small photograph of Curiosity and his
father when he was 5 years old.
                                                            
                       SUE
      (Sadly and Upset)
If only you were here Jonathan...
You would know what to do.

                       JOHN
      (Curiously)
Afraid of what?
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (loudly)
I'm afraid of high school Dad, I
don't even know if I'll even do
good in high school... or even
survive it.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (WISELY)
That's what I love about you
Jacob. Your curious about the
world and you don't know if your
gonna fit in. If you believe then
you can achieve. That's what I
always say to myself when I'm
feeling down or upset and now I'm
saying it to you.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (Questioned)
Do you really think I can do it
Dad???
                                                            
                       JOHN

Jacob, are you ready? You don't
want to miss the bus
                                                            

4.

                       CURIOSITY
Yea I'm ready... I just had to
check my phone.
                                                            
 
EXT. STREET CORNER-AT THE BUS STOP - MORNING
                                                            
Curiosity goes to the bus stop where he sees Noah standing,
rady to get to school.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (Tiredly)
Oh my god, I wish i was back
asleep, but I can't because we're
going to hell.
                                                            
                       NOAH
      (Confused)
I thought you loved school?
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
No I love creative writing, not
school though. In that class....
Oh my God, i just write what I
want.
                                                            
                       NOAH
IS really because of that or is it
because Ali is in your class.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (Embarrassed)
Maybe
                                                            
The bus comes around the corner and is closing in on the
guys who are accompanied by some other kids going to school.
                                                            
 
EXT. ON THE BUS - MORNING
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
To be honest I wish there was no
school at all. Like really, whats
the purpose of it, we all this
stuff that is "suppose" to help us
in the future but it isn't. Im
curious to find out who made that
rule, cause I might want to give
him a piece of my mind.
                                                            
Curiosity is speaking (as a narrator) as he is looking for a
seat on the bus.
                                                            

5.

                       NOAH
      (Angrily)
I hate being the last stop on the
bus cause we always have a hard
time getting a seat.
                                                            
Noah and Curiosity continue their search for a seat where
they spot Allison Foster who is sitting by herself with her
backpack on her side.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
That's Allison Foster, one of my
best friends in the school besides
Noah. She is in my creative
writing class and I have like a
huge crush on her.
                                                            
Curiosity and Noah approach Ali and she spots them.
                                                            
                       ALI
      (Enthusiastically)
Hey guys, I saved you guys a spot.
I didn't want you guys to go
through the pain of finding a seat
in this cramped bus.
                                                            
The bus is filled with students of all grades. Many are
screaming and gossiping about some other person's life or
relationship. However, our attention is focused on what
Curiosity and his friends are talking about.
                                                            
                       ALI
So can you guys believe the year
is almost over? Next year, Jacob
and I will be juniors and Noah
will be a senior.
                                                            
                       NOAH
Yea then after that I'll be in
college and I wont be able to see
you guys anymore.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
Well guess what Noah, it isn't
college time so stop acting so sad
that you wont be able o see us.
When the time comes then you can
be that way but for now, we just
gotta appreciate the time we have
now.
                                                            

6.

Curiosity feels better after giving such a speech but then
he turn his attention to the subject about his favorite
class.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (Curiosly)
So Ali what do you think we're
gonna learn today in creative
writing??
                                                            
                       ALI
      (questioned)
I don't know... Hopefully we
start talking about poetry cause
that's where its all at.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (To himself)
Jeez... Ali looks so good today.
Maybe this is the day... The day I
finally ask her out.
                                                            
Curiosity nervously scratches his head as he is about to ask
the biggest question in his life.
                                                            
But then..
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (loudly)
Yo, what up Ali
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (narrator)
That's Billy, the high school
bully. He is one of my
arch-nemesis in the school. You
know I just hate him so much, I
feel like punching him
                                                            
Curiosity clenches his fists tight as if he is ready for a
big fight, but then releases because he knows its not the
right thing to do.
                                                            
                       ALI
Hey Billy, I'm just sitting here
with Jacob talking about our
creative writing class.
                                                            
                       BILLY
Oh yea, I forgot the little nerd
was here. How ya doin nerd.
                                                            

7.

Curiosity thinks about what he should say next or even say
anything at all.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (seriously)
I am very good on this fine day,
what about you Billy Boy.
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (Angrily)
Hey, nobody calls me that. You
better apologize right now nerd
before I hit ya right in the jaw.
                                                            
                       CURIOSITY
      (sarcastically)
Why should I apologize for the
truth?
                                                            
After hearing that statement, Billy releases his anger as he
jumps to Curiosity but is stopped by Noah and Ali.
                                                            
                       NOAH
      (Courageously)
You don't want to start a fight
here now don't you Billy.
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (angrily)
I'm gonna beat that nerd up
someday for makin fun of me, and
you..
                                                            
Billy Points at Noah angrily.
                                                            
                       BILLY
      (angrily)
I'm gonna teach you a lesson that
you won't forget.
                                                            
Billy walks away to his group of friends who tried helping
him while he approached Curiosity. Noah and Ali ask
Curiosity if he is ok and he replies with a simply "I'm
fine". The bus approaches the school where our scene will
soon change to the creative writing class.
