-- [ Page 4 ] --

–  –  –

Thirster stares. Jeremy and Ember laugh out loud. Thirster begins to laugh foolishly pointing at Famish.

Famish, with coconut remnants on his cheeks and mouth, grins and asks.

–  –  –

Birdie stretches his hand to Famish. When Famish looks at Birdie’s hand, he goggles his eyes and grins when he sees the hare he was chasing earlier.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - PATH IN THE FOREST - DAY

Jeremy and his friends, along with Lence and Famish, approach Red Hasham Kingdom while crossing a dark dreadful forest.

They stare to the left and to the right as they glimpse in the distance human bodies that hang by the trees.

EXT. IVORY KINGDOM - SEA SHORE - DAY

Frosty looks confused at the sea. He has a map in his hands and follows the way with his forefinger. It crosses over the sea and stops at Red Hasham Kingdom.

Suddenly he hears some noise. A bunch of about 10 soldiers approach on horseback. He looks scared and quickly hides behind a cliff.

–  –  –

Frosty listens to them attentively. He shivers.

EXT. IVORY KINGDOM - SEA SHORE - DAY - SAME

Frosty stands and shows up with shy movements. The soldiers notice him and stare at him.

–  –  –

The head soldier rises his hand and wants to say something, but Frosty gets a fright and covers himself from his hand.

The head soldier frowns. Then he says pointing to his sword.

–  –  –

EXT. IVORY KINGDOM - SEA SHORE - DAY

They are all behind the cliff Frosty hid before and stare amazed at a big ship that looks rather like a covered sleigh, at which six huge husky dogs, as big as elephants, are harnessed, shivering with cold and eager to pull.

1 SOLDIER You suggest us to wait until the sea freezes?

The soldiers laugh.

–  –  –

The soldiers stare silent.

EXT. IVORY KINGDOM - SEA SHORE - DAY

The dogs run readily on the frozen sea. The sleigh-ship slides lively hosting both Frosty and the soldiers along with their horses.

–  –  –

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - ALLEY TOWARDS THE PALACE - DAY

Jeremy and his company approach the palace. The breathtaking view in front of them makes them stare.

There are tens of long beautiful rows of colorful tulips that stretch from the end of the alley to the palace.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - PALACE - DAY

They are in front of the palace. Jeremy notices a big red tulip in a pot. He approaches and looks at it.

–  –  –

Emperor Sigmund wears a long beard, expensive clothes, a chain around his neck and a big ring on his small finger.

The soldier makes a sign and the guards let Jeremy and his fellows pass. Famish and Lence are also with them.

–  –  –

Jeremy makes a few steps forward, kneels and bows his head.

Than he stands. His fellows stop behind him, weird in eager rivalry.

Sigmund chuckles ironically, then his face turns angry as he notices the tulip in Jeremy’s hands.

–  –  –

Sigmund begins to laugh scornfully.

At the same time, Birdie notices the blue bird. His eyes glitter with anger.

He stretches his hand to catch it, but the window pane is so clean that he didn’t realize it’s closed. His fist breaks the window.

Sigmund cuts off laughing. He points with his small finger to Jeremy’s friends and says.

–  –  –

The loyalties begin to laugh. Thirster also begins to laugh stupidly and to scratch one of his armpits.

Lence raises his hand to make him shut up, but he unwillingly hits Famish on the head and causes his tarboosh fall down.

–  –  –

Sigmund frowns with anger. One of his soldiers draws his sword and directs towards Famish.

Sigmund makes a sign with his hand and the soldier sheathes his sword and withdraws.

–  –  –

The emperor laughs ironically.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - GUESTS KITCHEN - DAY - CONTINUOUS

Jeremy and his friends sit at a big table full of all kind of food.

–  –  –

Birdie looks at Famish and Thirster, then he begins to laugh out loud. The others follow him. The chief servant frowns.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - KITCHEN - DAY - SAME

Birdie whispers something in Lence’s ear. The whisper goes from mouth to mouth until it reaches Jeremy. At the end, Jeremy nods to Birdie.

They all begin to eat and drink except for Famish and Thirster who grin and salivate and who rub their hands expecting.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - KITCHEN - DAY - LATER

Jeremy addresses the chief servant.

–  –  –

The chief servant stares astonished and open-mouthed.

Thirster spouts his friends’ glasses of wine. Famish sucks the marrow in the bones, then engorges the bones, burping loud.





The chief servant makes a face. The other servants stop from their work and stare speechless.

Thirster and Famish begin a game of burping. They eat and drink and burp by turns to show who can do it louder and longer.

They improvise a “burping song” releasing rhythmical oral sounds.

Thirster reaches his hand to take the last bottle of wine, but he can’t reach it. He stands.

His legs quake, he can hardly stand on his feet. He falls down, stands up again and quakes, but manages to grab the bottle and quaff it.

Famish searches with his eyes to find anything to eat, but can’t find anymore.

–  –  –

The chief servant stares speechless. He retreats from the kitchen.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - KITCHEN - DAY

There is silence in the kitchen. Emperor Sigmund frowns at what he sees. He arches his eyebrows and rubs his chin.

Thirster, totally drunken, shaking on his feet, raises his forefinger and says almost angry.

–  –  –

Jeremy wants to say something, but Sigmund hits the floor with his royal truncheon and this makes Jeremy startle and shut up.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - BEDROOM - NIGHT

Jeremy and his friends are gathered in a small bedroom of the palace. They all sleep except for Jeremy. He is at the window and stares at the sky, then at the tall imposing tower.

Suddenly, he spots the princess at one of the tower’s windows. She stares at him with sly and cunning eyes. Jeremy frowns.

Suddenly, the blue bird that troubled Birdie, lays on her shoulder. Jeremy stares, frowning more.

Then he sees something moving at another window and looks towards there. It seems to be the same princess, with the same clothes, but this time her eyes look warmly and gently, even sadly.

Jeremy looks confused. He compares the two princesses with his eyes and becomes captivated by the second one.

After a few seconds, he looks back at the first window and the first princess is not there anymore.

Than he looks at the second window, but she’s also gone. As he looks better, he can distinguish a finger print on the steamy window pane. It’s a letter: “T”.

–  –  –

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - CELLAR - DAY

Jeremy and his friends are in a cellar waiting for directions. A huge heap of sand mixed with poppy grains is in front of them.

–  –  –

The chief servant withdraws. Jeremy looks worried and disheartened. His fellows also look astonished. Jeremy takes a handful of sand and shakes his head disheartened.

Thirster approaches his face to the heap of sand and fixes his glasses “to see better”. He begins to separate the grains.

The others stare at him and sigh. Suddenly some buzz noise breaks the silence. It becomes louder and louder.

Through the small holes of the walls and the floor, a colony of bees begins to invade the cellar.

Jeremy and his friends become scared and wave their hands to defend from them. But the bees crowd on the sand heap and begin to separate the sand from the poppy.

Among them, Jeremy recognizes the bee he released from the spider web. The bee flies and sits on his finger. He smiles open-mouthed.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - CELLAR - DAY

Sigmund strives to hide his teeth gnashing at what he sees:

two piles in front of him, one of sand, the other of poppy grains.

–  –  –

The emperor fixes Jeremy with his eyes while Jeremy stares at him daring not to say anything.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - EMPEROR’S ROOM - DAY

The emperor rubs his chin angrily. He addresses the chief servant.

–  –  –

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - FOREST - NIGHT

About 20 soldiers march with torches in their hands. They guide Jeremy and his friends in the forest. Lence whispers Birdie.

–  –  –

INT. IVORY KINGDOM - THORNE’S ROOM - NIGHT

Thorne has a razor in his hands and tries to “shave” himself looking in a silver framed wall mirror. He is clumsy. It’s obvious the first time he does this.

He hears a knock at the door. He hides the razor under the pillow and answers.

–  –  –

Thorne’s eyes brighten.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - LAKE - COPPER HOUSE - NIGHT

They are all in the copper house which consists of a small and cramped room. There’s only one window, as small as a shoe box.

–  –  –

EXT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - LAKE - COPPER HOUSE - NIGHT

The chief servant stands with his hands crossed on his chest and glowers at the house which catches fire as the soldiers go around it with their torches and set fire on it.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - LAKE - COPPER HOUSE - NIGHT

The sixth beings frighten and panic.

–  –  –

Jeremy stares at him a few seconds, then struggles to take his boots off.

EXT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - HILL - NIGHT

Away from the house, on a hill close to the palace, the chief servant, together with the other 20 soldiers watch the house ablaze.

The emperor, accompanied by his guards, rides his horse trotting. He stops and looks at the house satisfied.

–  –  –

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - LAKE - COPPER HOUSE - NIGHT

Everybody fainted except for Jeremy who can hardly breathe and who looks hopelessly around. He whispers.

–  –  –

He faints. The next seconds the interior of the house begins to freeze by and by.

EXT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - HILL - NIGHT

The emperor watches the house ablaze a few more seconds, then spurs the horse and trots back. The others follow him.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - LAKE - COPPER HOUSE - NIGHT

The house is frozen. Birdie opens one eye slowly and looks around. Lence also wakes up and squints his eye confused.

–  –  –

LENCE At least you feel otherwise than hungry.

Thirster tries to distinguish the things around. He notices his glasses hitched in the horse’s tail. He grabs them and puts them on. He goggles his eyes and smiles satisfied.

Birdie shudders.

–  –  –

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - EMPEROR’S BEDROOM - DAY

A rooster crows. Others join him. Sigmund wakes up sluggishly. On his bedside table his rich breakfast expects him. He takes a cookie and puts it in his mouth then stands up.

He glimpses at the window and his face turns absolutely surprised. He stares for a few seconds. Then he rubs his eyes. He grabs a bell and rings it desperately.

The chief servant shows up immediately.

–  –  –

The chief servant looks through the window too and his eyes goggle as he sees Jeremy and his friends at the gates of the palace. The emperor casts a bossy look at the chief servant.

CHIEF SERVANT

Yes, your majesty!

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - EMPEROR’S CHAMBER - DAY

Jeremy and his friends are gathered in the emperor’s chamber.

The emperor observes them silent. His eyes look slightly kind. He stares at Jeremy.

After a long moment of silence, the emperor takes the floor.

–  –  –

The doors open and a girl creeps in. She looks just like the gentle princess Jeremy spotted at the window two nights ago.

She has a lavender in her hand.

Another one steps in. She is identical and has a calla in her hand.

They are followed by five more identical girls, each wearing a shy smile and having a different flower in their hand: a water lily, a daisy, a poppy, a snowdrop, a lily-of-thevalley.

Jeremy stares at each of them. He looks at his friends. They shrug their shoulders.

INT. RED HASHAM KINGDOM - EMPEROR’S CHAMBER - DAY

As Jeremy stares at their flowers, his look changes as if he realized something. He asks the emperor.

–  –  –

The girl flushes and droops her head. The emperor rubs his chin and frowns discontent, expecting.

Jeremy turns his face to the emperor. The emperor arches his eyebrows waiting anxious. Jeremy smiles for a few seconds.

–  –  –
