EXT. OCEAN FLOOR JUST OUTSIDE ATLANTIS – NIGHT
Cold open on HARRY and PIERCE (two members of VAMP SQUAD SIX) fighting an AGENT OF S.T.A.K.E. They have black eyes. (NOTE: Their eyes are black like a shark’s when they are in full vampire battle mode.)
After some struggle, the Agent of S.T.A.K.E. kicks Harry. Harry floats out of the fight. He falls and his eyes turn from black to blue and dreamy. He watches the rest of the fight, frightened.
Pierce overpowers the AGENT and holds him in a headlock. Pierce pulls off his GLOVE, revealing a LEECH-LIKE MOUTH on his palm. Pierce puts his hand on the agent and drinks his blood.
Pierce swims away, leaving the AGENT’S BODY to float slowly down. A cloud of BLOOD floats out of the body. Pierce speaks as he swims past Harry.
Go on. Get yours, Harry. I left you some.
Harry swims over to the BODY dejectedly. He removes his GLOVE and drinks blood with it as Pierce did.
INT. DRACADEMY HALLS – LATER
HARRY puts a notebook in his LOCKER. PIERCE quickly swims up to him and slams the LOCKER.
What exactly was that back there?
I…I froze. It won’t happen again.
It’d better not. If you’re gonna be one of the Vamp Squad
Six, then you need to step it up. If you can’t support your
fellow agents, we’ll gift wrap you and send you over to
Hey, I know what you’re going through. If Colonel Draquala
hadn’t sent Sanguina into the field, she’d still be alive. I
mean, she was your girlfriend, bro.
Pierce’s watch flashes. He looks at it.
Speak of the devil. I’ve got to see Draquala now.
Pierce exits. Harry lingers at the lockers.
EXT. DRACADEMY DORMITORY – EVENING
Flashback to SANGUINA and HARRY in front of the Dracademy dorm.
It’s okay, Harry. It’s an in-and-out rescue mission.
I’ll be back and debriefed in a couple of hours.
I don’t know, Sanguina. I’ve got a bad feeling about this one.
You worry too much, tiger shark.
She kisses him.
I guess that’s why I like ya.
INT. DRACADEMY HALLS
Cut back to HARRY reflecting. (NOTE: Not literally! They can’t cast reflections.) Harry sets his jaw and pulls out his PHONE. He types something we can’t see.
Cut to a shot of the phone screen. We see a TEXT MESSAGE to DIRK that says “Tonight’s the night. Draquala’s going down!”
Cut back to Harry. His eyes turn black. (NOTE: Their eyes are black like a shark’s when they are in full vampire battle mode.)
