ROAD TO THE TRIUMPH CUP Part 1 - A NUMERACY WIZARD STORY
continue 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.
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.
It is like the paper, longs to be part of the triangle.
Jung Wei looks into Gretta's soul.
Two souls to be one.
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.
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.
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.
Jung Wei you foul fiend, release Gretta from your vile torture.
Li Jie, you always come in too soon. Perfection does not like to wait for you.
Perfection. Ha, Ha. I laugh in the face of perfection. The only perfection you bring is unsatisfied desires.
I cannot take it any longer. Help me, Li.
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.
I give you the square. Four sides of sheer equality. No side getting more than the other.
You lie, nobody can handle the square. Not even you.
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.
Do not diminish the Triangle of Perfection.
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.
Run, run to the Drama Room. He will never enter there.
What's your name?
I am Li Jie, The Numeracy Wizard. I am here to rescue you.
Thank you!! What about you?
I will be right behind you.
