out of their hand and bites into their neck, the campers are screaming while aria
feeds , she finishes draining the first camper and throws him on the ground, the

(Ana turns around and brings the bacon pan to the island and drops al lthe bacon on a plate then returns the pan back to the stove, she walks back the isladn and leans against the countertop)
Ana: why are the hastings back in town ?
Eliza: maybe they missed this place
Ana: please, Brady hated this town
Eliza: and we know why, but their not around anymore, maybe he did just come back for fun, after all theres a lot in this town, im sure he missed
(Eliza finally looks up from her magazine and gives ana a smirk suggesting that her and brady had a past)
Eliza conti’d: ana, maybe its time we prepared aria, just incase brady isn’t back in town just for fun
(Ana looks at eliza with a look of agreement just as Aria enters the kitchen with a scarf around her neck hidding her bite marks, she walks over to the cupboard and pours out a bowl of cheerios, then sits beside Eliza and pour milk into her bowl and begins to eat)
Eliza: rager last night ?
Aria: no, just a pounding headache .

(Eliza then exit’s the house leaving aria still astonished at the counter and ana still leanign against the stove alone)
Aria: did I do that ?
Aria: how ?
Ana: because essential you’re a Valtore woman and we’re witches, dating back to the 18th hundreds, a bloodline of pure witchcraft in miller creek .
Aria: what ?
Ana: remember when you were younger and whenever you got mad, strange things would happen, like door slamming or fires starting ? Or whenever you wanted something that you couldn’t have, somehow it would magically appear ? It wasn’t just conciedence , it was your powers . And being a valtore witch, makes your powers *pause* strong .
Aria: so youre saying that your side of the family is a line of powerful witches ?
(aria looks ecstatic)
Aria: so youre saying im a witch ?
Aria: that is so cool , omg . So do I get to like a ride a broom stick and use a cauldron ?
Ana: okay first, don’t rely on fictional stories or movies to tell you what we do .
We do not fly on broomsticks , but we do use cauldrons . But honey, how are you feeling ?
(aria jumps out of her seat and grabs her bag)
Aria: feeling ? Im feeling great, I just found out that im a witch, one of my favourite folktale character . I want to learn everything about our family, the history, the spells, everything .
(aria gives ana a bright huge smile, ana walks from the stove and gives her daughter a hug, ANGLE on the back of aria showing anas face which is happy, but worried as he pats he daughters head, aria parts from her mother and leaves the house)
END OF ACT ONE
(aria has her headphones in and is walking down the street, in the small town passing by stores and the dinner beautiful day out, birds are chirping, she stops in her tracks, looking suspicious and turns around to see no one she comes walk, a build up of suspense , some one tapes her on the shoulder and she turns around elbowing them in the ribs, turns out to only be evan, evan crunches down in pain, aria goes to aid him, she takes her headphones out)

Evan: want to go to the dinner after school, well after your tryouts?
(aria looks surprised and nods)
Aria: yeah, sure.
(aria then walks away trying to catch up with lena, evan walks away in the other directions)
(eliza’s sitting at booth by herself stirring a drink, she is clearly waiting for someone when a handsome older man wearing a tighly fitted suit(35) tall dark and hansome enters the dinner, he looks at eliza and nods his head, he walks over to her and sits in the booth, they stare at each other for a mintue , you can feel the tensions, he then breaks it with a smile)
Brady: eliza .. You don’t look a day past hundred
(eliza smirks and sighs)
Eliza: you don’t look like a asshole, but looks are deceiving
(eliza takes a sip out of her drink and waitress comes by)
Waitress: can I get you anything ?
Brady: bourdon, double shot .
(the waitress nods then leaves)
Brady: you called me here eliza, you obviously want something
Eliza: what I want, is an explantion. Why are you back in town ?
(brady looks hurt at this question, but that’s quickly erased with a smug look)
Brady: I simply love this town , and my wife inherited the Wellington estate . Seemed like a perfect time to come back.
Eliza: we both know that isn’t the real reason
Brady: I know what youre thinking , and I cant say that youre wrong .
Eliza: how do you know ?
Brady: I cant say that either,
(brady gets up from the booth and adjusts his suit)
Brady: what I can say that is, I have a reliable source and this town maybe returning to the way it was before I left, infested .
(eliza looks angry, her fangs come out)
Eliza: sit down , brady .
(brady leans down on the table, not afraid of her )
Brady: ah, ah, ah, id retract those if I was you Elizabeth, Do remember .
(brady smiles smugly and eliza retracts her fangs)
Brady: none to worry, I still uphold our deal as long as you do your part, your family is safe, the few you do have
(eliza shakes her head in anger, as the waitress comes back with bradys drink, he takes a sip out of it)
Brady: now id stay and finish my drink, but I have business to attend to.
(brady pulls out his wallet and drops a ten on the table)
Brady: Tell Ana, I said hi .
(brady exit’s the bar leaving eliza alone, confusion on her face)
( a bunch of girls in athletic wear are stretching , warming up for a cheerleading tryout, aria enters the gym and walks over to lena who is stretching )
Aria: why are we doing this again ?
Lena: because we deserve to be on the squad and that little preppy blonde skank, is not gonna get in my way to be social chair
Aria: so what ? You plan on taking her down from the inside ?
Lena: Exactly !
Aria: I was joking , Lena
Lena: I wasn’t, I told you this is our year
Aria: you’re crazy
(we hear a scream in the background , aria looks over and sees a girl on the ground, leg cut open, arias breathing gets heavy, she then gets a pounding in her head, she falls on the ground in pain, lena rushes to her aid, scared what to do)
Lena: aria, aria,
(aria screaming in pain, rolling around. Holding her head in pain,shes hiding her face, she looks up and her pupils are dilated along with her fangs are out again, arias panting and looks over at the girls bleeding leg, a burning sensation is in her throat, lean sees her face, scared and shocked jumps away)
lena stammering, scared)

Lena: eating dinner alone ?
Evan: no , I was actually waiting for aria
(lena looks sympathic, she doesn’t know if she should tell evan what she saw with aria or cover up for her best, since she doesn’t even know what she saw)
Lena: oh evan, she must’ve forgot to call. She got really sick during cheer tryouts and went home.
Evan: is she okay ?
Lena: there was vomit, it was gross, but I think its just a 24 hour flu .
Evan: oh, okay . Good, I was starting to think something happened to her.
(lena leans into the table closer towards evan)
Lena: this wasn’t a friendly meeting between you two, was it ?
Evan: it was just a hang out .
( lena leans back in the booth and grins at evan, she knows evan likes her and evan know she does to, but he doesn’t draw attention to it, lena gets up from the table)
Lena: don’t worry, new boy. Secrets safe with me
( lena then exit’s the dinner ANGLE on evan, who unknowingly has skylar standing behind him)
Skylar: Looks like you got stood up
(Evan turns around not knowing who it is, then see that its skylar and face drops in disgust and turns around)
Evan: you obviously heard what Lena said
(skylar walks around and sit where lena was sitting, using her mocking voice)
Skylar: its just a 24 hour flu ( pretends to vomit) you really believe that ?
(evans face looks weariy , his thinking of if it is a lie or not )
Skylar: see that’s the thing about you brother, you’re too trusting .. And you obviously have no taste in women .
Evan: why are you here Sky ?
Skylar: because unlike you, I actually have a date . Here he is, actually .
( Derek enters the dinner and see skylar, skylar gets up and kiss Derek, Derek puts his arm around skylar)
Skylar: Derek, meet my brother Evan .
Derek: hey bro,
(evan rolls his eyes as skylar and Derek go back to kissing)
INT-ANAS HOUSE LIVING ROOM- NIGHTIME
( anas sitting at the island eating a salad reading a book, ana waves her hand over the book and the page turns. when eliza enters the house furious , throws her stuff on the counter )
(not looking up from her book)
Ana: you’re ruining my mood, eliza.
Eliza: brady said hi
(ana looks up from her book and closes it)
Ana: you talked to brady ?
Eliza: yeah, and he called the town “infested”
Ana: infested .. ? As in ..
Eliza: as in, some new vampire are in miller creek .
Ana: how does brady know ?
Eliza: a reliable source
(eliza goes into the cupboard and pour herself a glass of bourbon, eliza staring in the glass continues)
Ana: should we be worried ?
Eliza: no , of course not. Brady made a deal with alden and me and he would never harm you . *pause*(takes a drink) I wonder if his son up to something
Ana: just because he made friends with aria doesn’t mean brady made him
Eliza: Ana, when will you clue in ? Brady is not a good guy, maybe he was when you were 15 but he hasn’t that way in a long time .
(Ana’s flustered and doesn’t know what to say)
Ana: have you seen aria ?
Eliza: No, but I can hear her upstairs , rustling in her bed .
Ana: shes been acting weird, she was overly excited when I told her about being a witch and then when she came home, she rushed upstairs into her room. I sense somethings off with her.
Eliza: shes a teenage girl, who just found out shes a witch , cut her some slack .
Ana: cut brady some slack .
(Eliza gives ana the evil eye, hurt that she would even say that)
Eliza: we should’ve killed him when we had the chance
(eliza downs her drink and walks up stairs, leaving ana alone in the kitchen, confusion on her face, flustered)
-INT- ARIAS BEDROOM -NIGHTTIME-
(arias sleeping in bed, shifting and turning and tossing in bed, shes breaking out
in a sweat and shes whinsing in her sleep, arias having the same nightmare she had the night before only different)
( Arias wearing a white dress walking around the woods, she looks lost, she sees
a couple camping, she walks up to the them and they seem scared yyou can see
the fear in their eyes,, she walks closer to them )
Aria: im hungry
( the campers reach out to her and try to pass her bread, aria knocks the bread
out of their hand , Eliza appears behind her in vampire form, dilated pupils and fangs, she whispers in arias ear
Eliza: do it, you know you want too, too stop that burning in your throat to end those knots in your stomach, all you have to do is take one.. Bite ..
(Aria bites into their neck, the campers are screaming while aria
feeds , she finishes draining the first camper and throws him on the ground, the
second camper turns into evan, arias hurt and confused
Aria: evan ?
(evan then stakes her in the heart in which she walks up from her
Dream, aria awakens from her dream covered in sweat)
(Aria screaming while gasping for air)
Aria: AAAH, BLOOD. BLOOOD
( eliza and ana rush into her room , they see arias face has changed, her pupils
are fully dilated and she now has a set of fangs)
Eliza: she turned .. But how !?
Ana: eliza, go get her blood.
( aaria gets out of bed but falls onto the ground in pain, Ana rushes to her aid)
Aria: (screaming in pain) Make it stop, mom. Make it stop, please. My head is
pounding . ( screaming in pain, begins to roll around on the floor In pain . Eliza
comes back in the room with a cup of blood )
Eliza: aria, honey listen to me . Drink this, the pounding will stop eventually , this
will help faster the process
( aria looks at eliza in pain, she takes the cup and drinks it , her rolling stop and
screaming, her pupils un dialted and you se her eyes go back to normal the
veins swell back in and her fangs retract )
Aria: what was that ? Does that happen all the time to witches ?
Eliza: ana, its time to tell her
Aria: tell me what !? Whats going on .. Whats happening to me ?
(Eliza looks at aria and gently touches her face, you can see the sympathy in elizas eyes, ANGLE ON ARIA, you can see how scared she is)
Eliza: aria .. Honey .. you’re a vampire
Aria: I’m a ..
(aria starts panting , her eyes roll back in her head and then she faints , screen fades black )
-INT- LIVING ROOM -NIGHTTIME-
(aria awakens on the couch wrapped in a blanket, shes gasps for air, confusion on her face while ana and eliza stand up pacing back in forth in the room, worried looks on their faces, aria holds her head, believing that she has a headache)
Ana: do you remember what happened ?
Aria: uhh … I had a dream .. And there was screaming and then I drank something .. And then auntie told me I was a ..
(aria remembers what her aunt told her, but is afraid to say it outloud)
Eliza: vampire, because you turned into one
Aria: no , no im not, im a witch . I cant just turn into a vampire
Eliza: well technically you were already a vampire, you just turned into one.
Aria: I don’t get it, if I was already a vampire, then why didn’t this all happen
Eliza: you are a born vampire, its in your blood, its in your genes. It just need to be activated. Which would be by, drinking someones blood or getting bitten .Unlike the usual process which I went through .. I just don’t know what started your transition
Ana: wait, let me see you neck
( aria shows ana her neck )
Eliza: I take that back, explains her transformation. Now I just don’t know who bit you
Aria: I don’t get it, you just tell me this that im a witch, and now youre telling me a vampire ?
( you can see the look of frustrated and confusion on arias face, ana sits down
on the couch beside with a calm look on her face )
Ana: do you remember when you were little, and I use to tell you the story of a
young witch and a young vampire falling in love ?
Aria: Yeah, it was my favourite bedtime story, why ?
Ana: its not a bedtime,
Aria: (confused) I don’t follow
Ana: it’s the story of me and your father
Aria: oh my god ..( on the brink of tears ) So what, im both ? Im a vitch ?
Eliza: clever, but no actually, we use the term hybrids, halfbread,
Aria: so im not human ?
Ana: well no you are, essentials witches are human. So youre half witch half vampire
Aria: how is this even possible to be both ?
Eliza: well since you were a born vampire, You had the choice to become if you ever wanted to ,the choice which was taken from you . And you’ve always had witch powers , you just have never be taught to use them . But they were always there
Ana: I never wanted you to become a vampire, that’s why I never told you and instead I started teaching you how to use your powers, I wanted you to live the closet thing to a normal life as you could
Eliza: hey, im a vampire and I never wanted you to become a vampire
( aria nods, finally looking as though she understand what her mother and aunt
are telling her, she sits up on the couch)
Aria: how many other vampires are there in this town
Eliza: a few familys are, none that pray on human though, so I cant imagine who
bit you .
Aria: and what about witches ?
Ana: quite a few familys too, were all in a tight knit circle . The arrows, the
turnbluts, the shardons, the marions .
Aria: lenas family .. ?
Ana: yes, I don’t know, if they’ve trained her, but her familys bloodline
Aria: so the spell book , auntie gave me earlier, that was great great grandmas
Ana: yes, it was property of Athena valtore
(aria just stares at them in silence, letting her furture sink in )
Aria: I want to know everything.
Eliza: with time, we cant just explain everything now. Your head will explode .
Aria: what about alden, I mean dad ?
Eliza: my brother
-shelter by birdy playing in the background-
Ana: was forced to leave before you were born, witches and vampires are
enemines by nature . Falling in love was out of the question, having a child
together, was absolutely forbidden, for the reason that we’d have a hybrid as a child .
Aria: whats so bad about hybrids ?
Ana: its unbalanced to have so much power, so to say . And since vampiress hate witches and witches hate vampires, its considered a sin against nature to be both. witches have been trying for centries to get rid of vampires, since the beginning of time.
Eliza: Just like how humans have a government who they listen to Vampires have people they have listen too , like a court. A court of original
vampires, once they found about your parents ,
Ana: it was either we end the relationship and part or they kill us both . At the
time , I had just told your father I was pregnant with you and he wasn’t about to
let us die, so he struck up a deal . If he left town and was not to contact with me
again, they would let us live . Of course if they had known I was pregnant, they
would’ve killed us on the spot .
( a tears rolls down arias face, shes shakes her head as though she has heard enough )
Aria: im done for tonight, (biting her lip , holding back her sobbing)
im going to bed
(aria gets up from the couch)
Ana: Aria -
Aria: no mom, I’ve heard enough.
( Aria turns over tears silently falling down from her face, she walks up the stairs , She climbs into her bed, bawling her eyes out, she grabs onto her stuffy and holds it tight, while she cries)
(Camera goes toAna and Eliza sitting on the couch looking hurt, they don’t know
what to do ,they sit in silence, PANE OVER TO THE WINDOW , where we see alexia standing watching she then rushes away, Eliza then stands up in a hurry and rushes to the window, she felt alexias presence .shes peers through the window )
Eliza: I need to go see my mother
INT-OLD MILLER FACTORY-NIGHTITME
( evenly is laying on the couch with the spell book in her lap when Alexia rushes in to the factory, evenly sits up )
Alexia: it happened, just liked we planned
Evenly: perfect, its only a matter of time before that brady character finds out about her,
Alexia: Am I done here mother ? This town is a bore ‘
Evenly: no you are not.
Alexia: what else do I have to do ? I bit her and turned her just like that witch asked
(evenly stand up and walks over to her daughter , it is clear that she is weak)
Evenly: you will do whatever she asks of you, shes the reason you and I are both standing here
(evenly then walks away from alexia, she continues)
Evenly: she has more jobs for you, you must go feed on people, publicly . And hurry on back, ( evenly turns around ) because we have to sign you up for high school
(Alexia stares at her mother, outraged, but obidently does what she is told, she then races out the factory leaving her mother alone )
( evan walks up aria driveway and stand on her porch, he nervous you can tell and is anxious, he finally works up enough courage to knock on her door, he waits for it, ANGLE ON THE DOOR, Aria answers the door in a green fuzzy housecoat, looking like a sick mess, hair on the top of her haid in a bun sipping out of a big white mug, she sees that its evan and screams and slams the door on this face, shes put her back against the door panting, thinking of what to do . She gains her composure and opens the door again, evan looks at her hurt and surprised)
Evan: hi, im sorry to show up out of the blue, I clearly scared you . I just wanted to check to see if youre okay
(aria looks confused)
Aria: if im okay ?
Evan: yeah, lena said you had got the 24 hour flu. *pause* don’t worry, I don’t hold it against you for standing me up
(aria realized that’s lena covered for her and that she stood evan up, she decides to play along)
Aria: it was so bad and out of nowhere, im sorry for stand you up I would’ve called, but I was kinda busy you know .. Vomiting .
Evan: hey, as long as you feel good now
Aria: yeah , I do . Still a little iffy, but better. Thank you
(evan sighs and has ran out of things to say, aria recognizes this
Aria: rain check ?
( aria flashes her bright big smile and catches evan off guard)
Evan: yeah, id like that .
Aria: do you want to come in ? we can have that rain check now.
(aria moves aside and lets evan in, her stares around the house, looking at her baby pictures and such)
Aria: uh, you can just sit at the island , im just gonna change .
(evan nodds and sits down at the island , aria then runs upstairs as she does, she catches eliza going down)
Aria: do you remember the boy I was telling you about ?
Eliza: the hastings boy ?
Aria: yeah, him . His the kitchen , entertain him while I go to change please
(aria gives eliza a pouty face, elize then thinks this is a perfect opportunity to find some answers so she nods and caves in, aria continues up the stairs while eliza glides into the kitchen , so goes to the coffee machine and pour herself a cup and posts herself against the countertop, evan gets up to go introduce himself, she puts her hand out to stop him)
Eliza: no need to get up, I know who you are.
(evan sits back down and eliza goes and sits across from him at the island)
Eliza: Elizabeth Atwood
Evan: nice to meet you, you’re Arias mother ?
Eliza: oh god no, her aunt .*pause* so evan, your father is brady hasting, correct?
Evan: yeah, do you know him ?
Eliza: we’re aquanited , we went to high school together
Evan: Oh … cool
(eliza takes a sip of her coffee and smiles at evan)
Eliza: whose your mother evan, I don’t remember your father ever seriously dating someone around here
Evan: Caroline Woods, but she pasted away when I still young
(eliza eyes widen to hearing evans mothers name, she knows who caroline is . She hides this fact from evan and shows remorse that he has no mother)
Eliza: im sorry to hear that
(eliza then stares into evans eyes trying to mind control him to find out the real reason him and his father are in town, she tries and then figures out she cant, making her confused as ever, also making her realize evan is a vampire as well)
Eliza: you seem like a good kid evan, but I know your family and I know your father, and the apple only falls so far from the tree
( evan nodds his head respecting her words, as though he has heard them before)
Evan: tell aria, ill see at her school on Monday, it was nice to meet you eliza .
(evan gets up from his seat and walks over to the door, eliza follows him and stand in the doorway)
(evan looks confused, but decides listen , evan gets up from his seat and walks over to the door, eliza follows him and stand in the doorway)
Eliza: tell your father I said hi,
( evan leaves the house , just as eliza shuts the front door . Aria comes down the stair, confused )
Aria: where did evan go ?
Eliza: he father called and wanted him home, he said to rain check and to see you on Monday .
(aria looks confused and angry)
Aria: what did you say to him ?
(eliza just stares at aria, giving her the “im your elder , respect me look”)
Eliza: be careful around that boy, aria.
Aria: whats that suppose to mean ?
Eliza: it means, be careful. You though you were human and you turned out to be a vampire and witch, things arnt always what they seem .
(aria gives eliza a confused, not understand look, she scoffs then heads back up stairs while Ana is coming down, she walks up to the counter top and looks at eliza confused)
Eliza: why does everyone keep giving me that look ?
Ana: whats wrong with her ?
Eliza: I sent her vampire boy toy packing and she was unhappy .
Ana: vampire boy toy ?
Eliza: evan hastings .
Ana: that’s impossible, brady would never ..
Eliza: his mother is caroline woods, who if I remember correctly was turned, and I do remember, because I was the one who did .
Ana: so his a born half vampire ?
Eliza: so I thought, untill I tried to mind control him and it didn’t work.
Ana: still seems impossible, wouldn’t brady know ?
Eliza: it wouldn’t be the first time, brady was wrong about who supernatural and whose not . Aria needs to be careful around that family, atleast untill I found out whats really going on
Ana: you don’t think he really is one do you ?
(Eliza opens her mouth to say something, but her vampire hearing pick something up instead , shes rushes over to the living and turns up the volume on the tv, it’s a new broadcasting of a murders, a women stand in front of a cabin in the woods)
Woman on tv: earlier this morning a couple was hiking through the woods when they discovered four bodies, the reason of death as from the cornoers office is unknown, they are leaning towards an animal attack considering the bite marks and wounds on the people, the species is yet to be identified . The mayor and police tell us not to be alarmed, it is cougar season in the woods and to just be prepared and ready if you plan on going in this woods in the next few months, we mourn this losses with sympathy in our hearts .
(eliza looks over at ana, them both realizing what they have happening in their town)
Eliza: yeah, I really do this he is . And with current events I think there are more .
