Hello again, friends! Timothy Scott Purvis here with another offering! Yes, this is going to be a short one. Mostly because the ‘script’ as it were was very short and was really just production directions on actions taken by the characters. …Of course, isn’t that all scripts? Anyhow, this was a little separate piece that I made up between seasons to set the stage for season two. I have another short called ‘We’re Not Lost’ but I never actually wrote a script for that animation. I just wrote it as I went along.
That aside, here is Flower Girl with me singing very badly in the beginning! I’ll post the link to the video at the bottom. I believe I already made it available on here before so I’ll look that up and link it.
Onward and thanks for reading!
STAR CLOUD SHORT
EXT GREEN FIELD
[Aeris is walking through a field and humming. She starts dancing and singing.]
AERIS: I’m a flower girl
Living in a dirty world
Life is drastic
I’m so plastic!
You can’t comb my hair
Or bend me anywhere
This song is silly
But it’s not dilly-
[Aeris gets knocked out by something. The view spins overhead looking down on her motionless body.]
INT A STRANGE ROOM
[Aeris awakens in a strange room. She is strapped to an upright table via duct tape.]
AERIS: Uh… what’s going on!?
MYSTERIOUS VOICE: You thought you could take credit for my work didn’t you?
MYSTERIOUS VOICE: Tifa wasn’t the first. There have been… others.
[The man walks forward from the shadows.]
BARRET: Now you know the truth.
AERIS: What the hell are you talking about!? And what do you mean by “others”?
BARRET: They thought they could take credit too. But they were wrong.
AERIS: Uh… credit for what?
BARRET: I’ll show you.
[Starts playing random images on the screen beside him. In each image he is standing in it staring outward from the view.]
BARRET: Here. In Kalm. Do you see? Do you see?
BARRET: [Clicks next image.] And that stupid ranch in the marshes. Do you see? Do you see!?
AERIS: See what!?
BARRET: [next image] And Junon. Do you see? Do you see!?
AERIS: What the fuck are you talking about!?
BARRET: [next image] You cannot deny me! Your eyes are open! Here, the ultimate doing! Midgar! Do you see? Do you see!?
AERIS: Yes! [sobs] Yes, I see! I see it! [sobs harder]
BARRET: And now I will be satisfied. I will be denied no longer. You remember what happened to Tifa?
AERIS: Yeah, you blew her fucking head off, you looney!
BARRET: Yet where is her body?
AERIS: How the hell should I know? You were there with me! She just disappeared with Cloud!
BARRET: Another person trying to assume credit for what’s rightfully mine.
AERIS: …Did you hit your head or something?
BARRET: #@^$*&^^#@$! @$@#$@#@#$@#! [Starts cussing]
AERIS: [Shocked expression] Oh my virgin ears!
SHINRA TROOP OS: There he is!
SHINRA TROOP 2 OS: Get him!
[Barret yells and shoots at them as he flees. They give chase. Aeris stares after them for a moment in silence.]
AERIS: A little help.
[A little while later Aeris is walking down a hallway.]
AERIS: I swear, the weirdest shit goes on anymore-
[An explosion rocks the area. After falling down Aeris pushes herself back to her knees.]
AERIS: What the? Oh wow. I’m even more flower girl than before!
EXT GREEN FIELD
[Elsewhere, the shadowy form of Barret reaches for the sky.]
EXT GREEN FIELD
[Aeris is walking along happily.]
VOICE: So, do you want to know what he was really after?
AERIS: Still a gil!

Thanks again and read to everyone again soon!

SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION STARTS!
I would appreciate if you have Kindle or even if you want some paperback goodies if you’d head on over to my page and maybe show me some love there. I mean, if you’ve been reading a while and see something you like, wouldn’t you like to have it in your personal library? I have some cool short stories available for cheap. Also Tales From A Strange Mind that collects my short stories (there’s also a Kindle edition but, for some reason, Amazon wouldn’t let me link them together) , Tales From A Strange Mind II which collects my old novellas, Red Star Sheriff (Which also has a Kindle edition but Amazon, am I right?) my first novel ever released, though, yes, it does have some grammatical errors and drags on for way too long, sigh. But I still love it and I will be writing a follow up sometime within the next few years. I have a collection of my poems called MisAligned: The Heart Waxes Poetic which collects my old poems but not some of my newer ones included those flash fictions! I’ll probably do that in the future as well. And if you love the perfectly inane, why not check out my Star Cloud scripts presented in book form? Star Cloud The Original Scripts. Another one where Amazon was being difficult with me in connecting the Kindle and PB versions. Still, the paperback they let me sale for cheap and it’s well worth a look if I say so myself. Or, if you don’t want to click on individual links (all of which will take you to my author’s page anyway), just click on my author’s page directly by tapping my name: Timothy S Purvis See for yourself what all I’ve published since I began this venture in 2016.
I mean, if you like my work, of course. No pressure. Just trying to find my way in this world without working menial tasks and suffering physical and mental issues as a result. If only I could merely stay home and write. That would be my most epic fantasy brought to life. Well, if you don’t want to do that, you could also donate to my cause down below after all is said and done. It would help. You know, if you liked what you saw and all. Up to you. I don’t have a lot of reviews on my materials because of low sales. I mean, very, very low sales. In the single digits. Right now, I have to rely on Pubby for reviews and those people only read your synopsis and recap it for a five star review. I want honest opinions. Not mean ones, but honest. So, if you ever find yourself buying some of my work, I’d certainly appreciate some feedback. Again, up to you.
Also, I’m selling my work for cheap over at Smashwords.com! Check out that page here: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/TSPurvis
