ROAD TO THE TRIUMPH CUP Part 2 - A NUMERACY WIZARD STORY


continued from Part 1



INT. DRAMA ROOM

Gretta enters the drama room. No more than a victim of black paint and sound proofing.
Gretta drifts across the room, silently and with much attention.
Gretta approaches the back door, leading to the Schoolyard.

LI JIE
Gretta, he will have thought of using that foul device.


Li Jie is barracading the Drama Room entrance with a sledge hammer's handle.

GRETTA
You mean, the door.



LI JIE
Indeed.



GRETTA
Then how do we get out.


Li Jie motions to the ceiling.
Gretta motions with her hand, leading out a finger to let him know he is number one.

LI JIE
I forget myself.



GRETTA
I fell for that trick once in fifth grade.


Li Jie standing still with a truly dumb face.

LI JIE
I, umm...



GRETTA
Yeah, new plan.


Gretta, opens the backdoor to the schoolyard.

LI JIE
Oh, I guess that works after all.



GRETTA
Your lucky your square, is very attractive.


Gretta leaves the Drama Room.
Li Jie scampers across the room, holding up his square as though it would protect him for himself.

EXT. SCHOOL YARD

Gretta runs across the grass towards the parking lot.

LI JIE
Run, he is over there. He took the long way round.



JUNG WEI
You dare insult me, the Triangle of Perfection knows no curves.



GRETTA
And it never will.


Li Jie uses a car autostarter, and runs towards his Lambourgini.

LI JIE
Gretta, to the red one.


Gretta looks at the parking lot, and sees he meant the red Lambourgini by the purring motor with pink cat ears on top.

GRETTA
Oh, so cute.


Gretta changes direction to run to the car.
Jung Wei hustles as fast as he can, as he whispers sweet nothings to his Triangle of Perfection.
Jung Wei runs head first into a tree. He passes out.

INT. LAMBOURGINI

Gretta enters the car.
Li Jie tries to do the sexy slide across his car, but does it less gracefully than it worked in his head. Dragging his keys across the front, with a loud scrapping sound. They catch an edge. He twists and lands head first on the ground.
Li Jie gets up quickly, and acts like that was on purpose. Wiping the ground off of himself, he casually gets behind the drivers wheel. And tries to turn it on. Li Jie realizes he does not have the keys.
Li Jie gets out of the car, and scrambles to get the keys.
Gretta looks over and see the square admiring her.

GRETTA
I know I shouldn't touch it, but...


Gretta fingers gently caresses the square. She blushes. Its so smooth, and flexible. Four exact sides, color of purple.
Gretta locks Li Jie's door. Hops over to the driver's side, and uses the keys to start the car.
Li Jie panics, as his head is under the front wheel. Jumps up and sees Gretta touching the square. Her eyes wide, and curious.
Gretta squeels the tires, and drives off.
Li Jie just stands his ground, watching the Lambourgini drive off into the distance.
Li Jie looks to the side, and sees Jung Wei watching the car drive off.
Jung Wei slowly turns his head towards Li Jie.
Jung Wei meticulously raises his hand, and like Gretta before him, gives Li Jie the signal he is number one.

continued to Part 2


1. INT. THE PLACE BY THE THING WITH THE MATH STUFF


Jung Wei slowly extracts a ruler from his pencil case, and places it on his desk.


Gretta filled with panic stricken eyes, looks on. Unable to move from her seat mere meters away from the scene unfolding.


Jung Wei meticuously removes a pencil from his pencil case.


Gretta's legs begin to shake in fear.


Jung Wei takes a piece of white paper from inside his desk. Placing it softly like a feather on top.


Gretta's hands hurt from tension, preventing her from running.


Jung Wei looks into Gretta's eyes, his determination melting into Gretta's soul.


JUNG WEI

Today, we will be drawing triangles!


Jung Wei picks up the pencil. He takes the ruler and lines it up with precision on the paper.


Jung Wei draws a line along the straight edge exactly three centimeters long.


JUNG WEI

It is like the paper, longs to be part of the triangle.


Jung Wei looks into Gretta's soul.


JUNG WEI

Two souls to be one.


Gretta shakes.


JUNG WEI

To be one.


Gretta stares blankly into Jung Wei's eyes, powerless to avoid his glaring gaze.


Jung Wei shifts the ruler on the paper, connecting one of the line to the ruler and another into the emptyness of the void of the white paper.




JUNG WEI

Two sides of a triangle together lead to nowhere. The sides forever joined, as though they were always meant to be.


Gretta's minds breaks, she screams into the gymnasium. Her voice echoing from wall to wall.


Jung Wei smiles. He feels the uncontrollable excitement of triangles. Their sheer intensity, their smooth forms, how they work together in a rhythm all to its own.


JUNG WEI

And now for the end. We connect the two lines together to form a unison. One experience, one moment of perfection.


Jung Wei draws the final line from end to end of the two lines. His arms shake as he progresses, unsure if he can bring this perfection to the paper. To share with Gretta.


Grett's eyes widen, her breathing eratic, her cheeks red.


Li Jie enters the gymnasium.


LI JIE

Jung Wei you foul fiend, release Gretta from your vile torture.


JUNG WEI

Li Jie, you always come in too soon. Perfection does not like to wait for you.


LI JIE

Perfection. Ha, Ha. I laugh in the face of perfection. The only perfection you bring is unsatisfied desires.


GRETTA

I cannot take it any longer. Help me, Li.


LI JIE

Of course I will help you Gretta. But first I must defeat Jung Wei.


Li Jie takes out a pencil, and a piece of purple paper. Slowly walking to Gretta's location.



LI JIE

I give you the square. Four sides of sheer equality. No side getting more than the other.


JUNG WEI

You lie, nobody can handle the square. Not even you.


LI JIE

We will just have to wait and find out. Together as though there were three sides in this place, at this time. As though the three of us form a imperfect triangle.


JUNG WEI

Do not diminish the Triangle of Perfection.


LI JIE

You did not even finish it. We are still waiting.


Li Jie now next to Gretta.


Jung Wei picks us his long lost mistress totally forgotten, because of the unfortunate intrusion of Li Jie.


Jung Wei shaking uncontrollably, focuses on the paper, to realign his ruler on the incomplete line. One mistake would ruin the moment. Sweat coming from his brow, threatening to drop on the paper and ruin everything.


Jung Wei draws the line. A smile crosses his face. He has done it, Li Jie cannot stand against his triangle. Li Jie's threat of a square is impossible, and he has won.


Jung Wei looks up.


Nobody is there. The sound of a gymnasium door echoes.


Jung Wei is paralyzed.



2. INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY


Li Jie and Gretta are running down the hallway.


LI JIE

Run, run to the Drama Room. He will never enter there.



GRETTA

What's your name?


LI JIE

I am Li Jie, The Numeracy Wizard. I am here to rescue you.


GRETTA

Thank you!! What about you?


LI JIE

I will be right behind you.

EXT. SIDE STREET

Jimmie smoothly glides down a side street of Manhattan. Doing his dance moves twisting his body side to side. Skipping a little bit, and approaches an intersection with a crosswalk.

SARAH
Hey, Jimmie. You are looking good today.
JIMMIE
Thanks Sarah, I try hard to look this good.
SARAH
Well, you are working it.
JIMMIE
Just living with happy thoughts.
SARAH
(smiles)

Jimmie jumps over the crosswalk, can't step on lines you know. Never know what is going to happen. Happily skipping down the middle of the street.

STRANGER
Wowee, you are mighty fine. Good enough to eat.
JIMMIE
Hey man, I told you. I am not into that.
STRANGER
Your loss! I am still gonna watch you walk away.

Jimmie, walks not so confidently away holding his hand out across his backside. Palm out. Aways down the street.

FLOWER GIRL
Holding your hand there makes you look like ummm... Weird.
JIMMIE
Heya, Flower!!
FLOWER GIRL
I have a name you know.
JIMMIE
Yes, but we both know I will forget it by tomorrow. Just like I did today.
FLOWER GIRL
Yeah, we do.
JIMMIE
(laughing)

Flower Girl gives Jimmie a flower.

JIMMIE
Thank you, I will call you flower girl from now on.
FLOWER GIRL
I know, you said that yesterday too.
JIMMIE
Oh, did I.
FLOWER GIRL
Yep, but every day you have a glow about you. Like there is some hidden talent, just waiting to come out.
JIMMIE
I am very talented at holding my hand by my back side.
FLOWER GIRL
Yeah, unfortunately...
JIMMIE
(laughing)

Jimmie saunters side ways down the street, keeping his back side away from Flower Girl.

CANDY CLOWN
Hey man, why you walk with your back side hanging out like that every day. Don't ya, know how to just walk down the street.
JIMMIE
I am teasing Flower Girl.

Jimmie points up the street, and Candy Clown follows his finger. Nobody is there.

CANDY CLOWN
Hey man, you seeing things, hearing voices. Cause I need to get some of that, if it be true?
JIMMIE
I just practice math in the morning.
CANDY CLOWN
Oh hell no, I tried that once. Ended up with a real job, had responsibilities. I don't need that again.
JIMMIE
Might be time to grow up, be a man. Learn to walk with one foot in front of the other. Would you not agree?
CANDY CLOWN
Agree!!! Hell no. You throwing my own words of wisdom back at me.
JIMMIE
Nah, I just practice math.
(smiles)

Jimmie and Candy Clown side skip down the sidewalk in unison. Hands behind their backsides. Everyday the same, everyday both of them getting a little better.

INT. EXTENDED PATIO OVERSEEING A GREAT GARDEN WITH A POOL

ZHANG WEI walks over the patio to fill his glass with water.
ZHANG looks out over the garden.


ZHANG WEI
This is a great garden. I lIke this garden.

LI XIU YING
It is alright.

ZHANG WEI
Alright, our grandfather spent his life building this garden. And his grandfather before him.

LI XIU YING
Dad, never took to it.

ZHANG WEI
He also was blind, deaf and drank too much.

LI XIU YING
Yes, he
LIked his lemonade. You make him sound like he was Liu Yang.

ZHANG WEI
Yes, he inded was not like our aunt. It still is a wonderous garden.

LI XIU YING
It lacks... Symmetry.

ZHANG WEI
Symmetry, that sounds like a word only book worms would know.

LI XIU YING
Or someone that did not skip school.

ZHANG WEI
I did not skip school, I just had other priorities.

LI giving ZHANG a side ways look.


LI XIU YING
What was her name?

ZHANG WEI
I forget.

LI XIU YING
To be fair, so do I.

ZHANG WEI
You could use a boy toy.

LI XIU YING
I find the brain attractive. Smart men make me happy. They are so hard to find.

ZHANG WEI
I suggest pretty ones. Easier to find.

LI XIU YING
As age happens, looks fade. The brain only gets better. I play the long game.

ZHANG WEI
(laughing)
Long

LI XIU YING
Grow up!!

ZHANG WEI
So tell me about this brain man you seek. Does he dance with 2 left feet? Can he dress for success? Does he still live in his parent's basement?

LI XIU YING
You still
LIve in your parents basement.

ZHANG WEI
Good thing, you are my sister then. Otherwise it would be awkward.

LI XIU YING
I see why you are single.

ZHANG WEI
By choice.

LI XIU YING
Yep, just not yours. My brain man can do math, he can read my poetry, and he can pay for his own apartment because he has a job.

ZHANG WEI
3 jobs to be exact, you cost a fortune to maintain.

LI XIU YING
That might also be true. I can work and pay for myself though.

ZHANG WEI
Tell me of this work you claim to do. How come I had to get my own glass of water?

LI XIU YING
Smart people can identify who needs to do the work.

ZHANG WEI
Speaking of work, I am going to go for a swim. The neighbours have their daughters home from college. I figure I will roll my luck.

LI XIU YING
Gambling is a fools vice. You should have shown up for math class.

ZHANG WEI
Yeah, but gambling is much more fun.


ZHANG WEI gambles his afternoon away in the pool. ZHANG WEI only wins a consolation prize of a bad sunburn.

LI XIU YING lounges in on the deck, and takes her investment portfolio another 10 points higher.

Who do you want to be?

The Secret World in the Education of Math - A Numeracy Wizard Story

Politician:
So tell me, what can one expect from building the new City Hall on the hill?

Civil Engineer:
The City Hall will have ample window space overlooking the entire town. Everyone in town will have to look up at you.

Politician:
I have to admit, that has some appeal. But what can I tell the citizens. They are paying for my palace after all.

Civil Engineer:
You will have to talk to Public Relations.

Public Relations:
This will enhance communication about future plans of City development. It will empower us to avoid expensive mapping systems, and enabling the city planners to simply point to the location in town a change needs to be made.

Politician:
So it is creating cost savings in the long run.

Public Relations:
Yes, that is a good idea, Sir.

Politician:
I am glad I thought of it. Make it so.

Public Relations, Civil Engineer:
Yes, Sir

Bowing towards the politician. Slowly walking away...

Politician:
It will be glorious, all the money we are saving by building me a palace. I love politics.

A ways away...

Public Relations:
Aren't you happy nobody understands math today?

Civil Engineer:
Engineers understand math, that is why we get paid ridiculous salaries.

Public Relations:
I wish I practiced math.

The civil engineer walks off into the distance...

Civil Engineer:
It's not like they tried to keep math a secret from you, when going to school.

Shaking his head.
