The Nerd’s Revenge
SCENE opens on Kris, a shy 18-year-old girl, as her car slowly creeps to a stop in a corner of her school’s parking lot. A box of homemade cookies sits wrapped up on the passenger seat beside her. The nerdy teenager sinks down in her chair, trying to avoid students as they pass. She is waiting for the bell to ring before getting out because she doesn’t want anyone to see her. When it does, the girl breathes a sigh of relief and slowly gets out of her car. She grabs the cookies, nearly dropping them, and walks towards the door with her head down. Alex, another student in her class, quietly enters the frame and runs up to her, offering to carry her things. She looks timidly at him before handing over the box and her books. But just as he takes them, another student named Derek comes flying in and knocks the stuff over. He laughs hysterically and makes fun of Alex for being nice to the nerd. In a panic, Kris bends over to pick everything up when Derek hikes up her skirt and starts to tease her about her ‘granny panties.’ Even Alex starts laughing. The boys run inside and leave Kris cowering over her mess. She picks up a cookie and starts to cry before slowly becoming expressionless and turning to stare at the door. She crumbles the cookie in her hand.
Kris stares down at a bowl of cereal, as her mother walks past and urges her to eat. Not looking up, Kris tells her that she doesn’t want to go to school today. Some boys have been bullying her. Sounding irritated, her mother reminds her that she is 18-years-old and a big girl. She shouldn’t take it personally … they probably just have a crush on her. Kris doesn’t react.
Cut to Kris meekly changing into a one-piece bathing suit in a public stall. When her teacher pokes her head into the changing room and urges the girl to come to practice, Kris tells her she isn’t feeling well and asks to skip the class. The teacher tells her OK but this is the final time this semester that she’ll be allowed to sit out.
Cut to Kris sitting under a tree, doing homework, when she is bombarded by the bullies. Running past, Derek and Alex peg her with water balloons. Soaked and horrified, she can barely wipe her eyes before Derek yells ‘I didn’t know you were into golden showers!’ The boys high five and run off. Kris begins crying again but suddenly stops. With a blank stare, she stabs her notebook repeatedly before throwing it on the ground.
Cut to Kris at home, staring at her self in the bathroom mirror. The shower runs in the background and fogs the mirror up. Wiping away the steam, she cries at her reflection in self-pity. The crying builds up to hysterics before slowly turning into laughter. She leaves the room.
Cut to the school parking lot. Kris has put a ‘bake sale’ sign on her car and is standing in front of it,with a tray of cookies, when the bullies come up to her. Derek grabs a cookie and mockingly eats it before spitting it in her face and grabbing a handful to go. You can see Alex hesitate, feeling sorry for the girl. He tells Derek to chill but Derek tells him to stop being a pussy and tosses him a cookie. ‘Eat one,’ he says, ‘they’re delicious.’ Alex slowly takes a bite.
Cut to a darkened room. The boys lie stretched out in nothing but their boxers. They slowly wake up to the sound of a naked Kris feverishly masturbating with a hitachi until she squirts. They jump back in shock and confusion. Derek demands to know where they are and, laughing, Kris tells them that she hopes they liked her cookies. Alex asks if they had been messed with and, ignoring him, Kris begins ranting about how she’s fed up with their bullying. It’s been every single day for the past four years. Tonight, it’s going to stop. Alex asks what she is going to do to them and she responds by saying ‘It’s not what I’m going to do to you that matters, it’s what you’re going to do FOR me to get out of this!’ Derek laughs and starts to get up, calling Kris a nobody. He says she doesn’t know what she’s doing and she’s going to regret it. Laughing even harder, Kris shows them some polaroid photos she took while they were out and retorts that they don’t need to worry about her, they need to worry about their reputation. The boys look at the photos in horror, as we can only imagine what they are seeing!
