Welcome to your Nightmare
Inspired by the legend of Krampus.

"Monsters aren't under your bed, they sleep inside of your head."

Scene 1:
A flashback

Anne: Wake up, Nicholas.
Wake up!

(Sound of baby)

Anne: Papa's home.
He had a long journey.
(To Emmanuel) Are the horses in the barn?

Emmanuel: Yes, dear. Don't worry.
I brought us some bread and some wine.
Everything's fine. (Kisses forehead) I —
I love you.

Anne: I love you too.
We should get some Holy water.

(Knock on front door)

Emmanuel: Hello?
Who is it?
Hello?

Anne: I hope it's one of those gladiators.
It's the only thing Johanna talks about.
Lord bless her.

Hel: You're going to get what you deserve!

Anne: Emmanuel, Come here. Please!

Emmanuel: What's the matter? I'm not trying to watch a chariot race. Stay inside, Anne.

Anne: Am I dreaming or did someone leave just a baby right there?

(Starts crying)

Emmanuel: Oh. Hey, buddy.

(Bites)

Ouch. Where did ya come from?
Oh, you're a hairy little bugger, aren't ya?

Anne: Aren't you the fairest of all?
He's so cute though and tough.
Sort of like you.

Emmanuel: Hey! What are you trying to say?
I shaved today.

Anne: It's so unusual for his age. Wait...
Emmanuel: What is it, my sweeting?

Annie: Oh, a scroll. Come hither. Should we read it??

Emmanuel: This would only happen in Rome.
What does it say?

Anne: Get a candle.

Emmanuel: Here, I have a torch.

(Unravels scroll)
Anne: Your past is not a dream
Your past will haunt you?
Emmanuel, what does this mean?
Emmanuel. Are you pitchkettled?
Speak.

Hel: I'm free. (Evil laugh)
I'm free.
