Neighborhood Bully

EXT. -- In Front of an Apartment Building in Queens, N.Y. - Afternoon

Two 10-year-old boys are playing outside their building when suddenly they get spotted by their bullies from across the street and are in fear.

Abdou

Yo Stefan, Camell and his gang are coming over. What should we do?

Abdou looks at Stefan and looks like he wants to cry.

Stefan

I don't know. They're so much bigger than us and we're outnumbered. I'm scared.

He stands in place as he trembles. He is trying not to look at them coming.

Camell makes his way over with his clique. He sees Abdou and Stefan, and laughs. Then talks to one of his friends in his clique and then talks to Abdou and Stefan.

Camell

Ha, ha, ha

Yo son, what the hell are these punks doing here? Come on, y'all know better than to play out on the block without my permission. Y'all gonna get it now.

Camell tries to intimidate Abdou and Stefan along with his clique. Abdou and Stefan plead.

Stefan

Camell, we just playing out here, nothing more. We not trying to cause disrespect. Please, be easy. Don't snuff us.

Stefan looks very sorry and afraid. He's very intimated.

Abdou

Camell, we don't want trouble. We just here minding our business. We don't have beef with you. We not trying to go there with you. Please, we're sorry. Forgive us. Just let us go back into the building. We'll go back upstairs.

Abdou is literally about to shed a tear as he pleads to Abdou along with Stefan.

Camell looks at his clique and looks back at Abdou and Stefan. He laughs and speaks.

Camell

Y'all mad pussy. Deadass. I ain't got time for chumps like y'all.

Camell steps back and tries to scare Abdou by leaning into him like he's about to hit him and Abdou flinches. Abdou bursts into tears.

Stefan

Chill, Camell!

Camell pushes Stefan to the floor and Stefan gets hurt. Stefan starts crying.

Abodu tries to defend Stefan with hesitation and talks with fear in his voice.

Abdou

Leave him alone, Camell. Leave Stefan alone! Please. He did nothing to you.

Camell then punches Abdou in the face and speaks his mind.

Camell

Hey, shut up punk. You ain't gonna tell me what I should do. You a sucker and you know it. Ask about me. Anybody can get it.

Feeling pain and intimidation, Abdou and Stefan go into their building and decide to depart to their floors.

INT. -- IN ELEVATOR OF APARTMENT BUILDING IN QUEENS, N.Y. - AFTERNOON

The two boys retreat to their building after getting bullied by Camell and decide to head to their apartments. They go into the elevator and press their floor numbers. Abou lives on the 3rd floor and Stefan lives on the 4th floor.

Abdou

Man, Camell roughed us up pretty bad. He just doesn't know how to leave us alone. I'm so tired of him. (Sigh)......

Stefan

Yeah, I know. He's really making life for us hard when we go outside to play. It makes me not wanna go outside anymore.

Abdou

Yo Stef, is it ok if I go with you to your place instead of heading home?

Stefan

Sure, man. No problem. Let's go watch some Dragon Ball Z. We'll find strength in our favorite characters and how they defeated their enemies.

Abdou

Yeah, you're right. Got lunchables?

Stefan

You already know.

Abdou and Stefan go off the elevator when it gets to the 4th floor. They walk down the hallway to Stefan's apartment. Stefan takes out his keys and opens the door. They say hi to Stefan's Dad and Mom and go to Stefan's room to watch Dragon Ball Z. Stefan goes to the kitchen quickly to get the lunchables to eat.

INT. -- FOLLOWING DAY at ABDOU'S APARTMENT On 3rd floor - afternoon

The next day comes and Stefan heads to Abdou's place to hang out. He decides to go down one flight of stairs instead of taking the elevator. He jets to Abdou's apartment and rings the bell. Abdou opens the door.

Stefan

Hey, Abdou. How are you doing?

Abdou

Good, and you?

Stefan

Same here. Wanna go outside and play?

Feeling down about what happened yesterday, Abdou gives his answer.

Abdou

I don't know, man. Why don't we just go to your place and play videogames instead?

Stefan

But I broke my piggy bank and want us to go buy chips at the store. Then go to the park. I have like $3 dollars.

Abdou

Wow! that's awesome. Ok, let's go.

Stefan

Cool.

Abdou gets ready. Stefan and Abdou jet down the stairs and leave their building. They cross the street to go to the store. They buy chips, juice, and candy. They then head to the park by their building.

Stefan munches on his chips and drinks his juice as he sits on the bench with Abdou.

Stefan

These Doritos are the best. Yummy!

Abdou

Man! Bet it doesn't taste as good as these Onion Rings.

They finish eating their food and drinking their juice. Then start playing. They get on the swings, on the seesaw, and on the slide. Suddenly they see a group of people coming to the park. To their surprise, it's Camell.

Stefan

Oh no, it's him. Abdou look.

Abdou

No, not Camell. Stefan, what do we do?

Stefan

Let's keep cool. Maybe he's not here to bully us today.

Camell and his gang enter the park and look directly at them. They walk up to Stefan and Abdou. Camell has a basketball in his hand.

Camell

So, you pipsqueaks still have the balls to show your faces, huh? Y'all mad butt.

Stefan looks so fearful and starts talking to Camell

Stefan

Camell, we don't want it with you. We're not trying to go there with you, man.

Camell starts dribbling his ball and gets closer to Abdou and Stefan.

Camell

Y’all squares don’t have any hood in y’all. Y’all deadass some pushovers. I’m gonna show my mans and them that y’all will always be pussy.

Camell goes up to Abdou and Stefan and makes them both flinch as he leans into them like he wants to hit them.

Camell

See, y’all dead ass some chumps.

Camell’s clique

Oh shit, they mad pussy!

Abdou

I’m out of here.

Stefan

Me too.

Camell

Where do y’all think y’all going?

Y’all ain’t going no where.

Camell puts his ball down and pushes Abdou and Stefan back.

Camell

Get y’all asses over to the fence.

Abdou and Stefan reluctantly go over to the fence. Camell picks up his basketball and starts hitting them in the head with it.

Abdou

Ouch! Stop it!

Stefan

Ugh!.....

Camell

Y’all super soft yo!

Abdou

Please! You’re hurting us!

Stefan

Yeah, please stop!

Camell

I ain’t stopping for shit

A custodian from Abdou and Stefan’s building that knows them by the name of Steve enters the park and sees what’s going on.

Steve (Building Custodian)

Hey! You leave those kids alone! Now!

Camell

Come on, man. We just having fun. Nothing more.

Steve

I said leave those kids alone right now! I ain’t playing with you!

Camell

Alright, alright. It ain’t that serious B. You got it big bruh. Let’s bounce y’all.

Camell stops bouncing the ball against Abdou and Stefan’s head and face and leaves the park with his clique.

Abdou

Thanks so much, Steve. Really glad you came.

Stefan

Yeah, me too. Thanks a lot, Steve. We owe you big time.

Steve

No problem. You don’t owe me nothing. Just try and toughen up guys. The neighborhood don’t do good to nice and soft guys. Y’all need to toughen up. Let these dudes out here that feel they can mess with y’all respect y’all. Don’t let anyone make them feel they have the upperhand over you. Stand firm and take no Ls.

Stefan

Alright, Steve. Understood.

Abdou

We’ll try and stand up for ourselves from now on. Thanks, Steve.

Abdou and Stefan are determined to never let Camell beat them up or bully them again.

Stefan

Abdou, let’s show Camell what we’re made of the next time he tries to mess with us.

Abdou

Oh, okay, Stef. Let’s do it.

Abdou and Stefan head back into their building with their heads up. They know that next time Camell decides to mess with him, they will teach him a lesson. They will teach Camell not to mess with them ever again.

Jose, Stefan and Abdou play Super Mario for some time until Abdou and Stefan decide that they want to go home. After 2 hours, they finally leave.

INT. — P.S.14 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL - MORNING

Abdou and Stefan were finally ready for school the very next day. Summer vacation finally came to an end and it was time to start school. They both went to school that morning and went about their business once they got into school. By the close of the day, Abdou and Stefan finally were done with their classes.

Abdou

Hey Stef

Stefan

Yeah?

Abdou

So did you talk to Marggy today?

Stefan

Nope. Couldn’t do it.

Abdou

Why man?

Stefan

I’m still too shy to talk to her

Abdou

Come on. You gotta overcome your fears.

Stefan

I will try harder next time.

Stefan has had a crush on this girl in his classes for a while now. He is simply unable to muster the courage to talk to her and tell her how he feels.

Abdou

Come on man. You got to get over it and just talk to her. She won’t bite.

Stefan

I know man. I know. It’s just that.......

Abdou

It’s just that what?

Stefan

Sigh......I just can’t do it ma.

Abdou

Alright man. I hear ya.

Stefan

So how was your first day back?

Abdou

Not bad man. And yours?

Stefan

It was cool. Jose is in my class. You know that, right?

Abdou

Yeah, I noticed that. He saw me in the hallway when I was on my way to the bathroom and told me.

Stefan

Oh ok.

Stefan and Abdou head home from school. They finally get to 99th street right across the street from their building and run into Camell. Abdou taps Stefan on the shoulder as he looks the other way.

Abdou

Uh-oh! Stefan! Look to your right.

Stefan

Why? What’s wrong? Oh shit! Nooo!....Not him.

Abdou

Just our luck. He’s coming over.

Stefan

Now what?

Abdou

Remember what we agreed on last time? We said we’re not get bullied by himself. He said we we’ll stand up to him next time he messes with us and that’s exactly what we’re gonna do.

Stefan

Oh yeah! That’s right. Let’s show him a thing or two. He can’t mess with us and go scott free. No way. We gotta stand up for ourselves.

Abdou

We gotta man. We just gotta.

Camell sees them and makes his way over, but alone. His clique wasn’t with him.

Camell

Sup lil homies? What y’all doing on my block?

Come on, y’all suckers can’t be here without my permission.

Abdou

Abdou immediately charges towards Camell with a fist in the flying. He swings at Camell and Camell gets punched in the face. Camell falls to the ground and feels the impact of Abdou’s punch.

Stefan

Stefan

Camell

Camell gets up and rushes towards Abdou and tries to punch him. Abdou dodges and kicks Camell in the stomach.
