EXT. PARK - MIDNIGHT

A full moon illuminates grassy fields. Sidewalks crisscross
the green-grey landscape, dotted with trees, broken up with
concrete picnic tables.

EVAN (30s, gaunt, pale) walks slowly, hands thrust in
pockets, eyes on the ground.

His eyes flicker to the right at a slight rustling of the
wind. He knows he's being followed, but doesn't change his
pace or demeanor.

CARRIE (20s, beautiful and alive) sneaks up behind him,
playful.

She wraps her hands around his eyes.

CARRIE
Guess who!

Evan smiles, teeth white in the moonlight.

EVAN
No mugger, I'd warrant.

He spins, catches her in his arms, giggling.

EVAN
Dangerous for you out here.

She melts into his grasp.

CARRIE
Not with you here.

He smiles again, pulls her to him.

EVAN
So sure, are you?

Evan looks down, notices for the first time that she's
carrying a few roses. He raises an eyebrow at her.

CARRIE
I brought you these.

Carrie hands them to him.

CARRIE
You said they were your favorites.

Evan takes Carrie by the hand. They walk to



EXT. PARK, BENCH - LATER

Evan and Carrie sit close on a park bench, the moon slipping
in and out of wispy clouds.

CARRIE
It's different now. Isn't it?

EVAN
I guess.

She lays her head on his chest.

CARRIE
What's it like?

Evan looks down at her. Strokes her hair.

EVAN
I don't remember.

His hand brushes her cheek.

EVAN
You're cold.

CARRIE
It's ok.

Evan reaches down, kisses her on the forehead.

CARRIE
You're cold too.

EVAN
Yeah.



EXT. PARK, BLANKET - LATER

A white picnic blanket spread out across the grass. Carrie
lies out on it, next to Evan. His hand is on her belly,
exposed.

EVAN
So soft.

She sighs at his touch. Leans in.

EVAN
A man should never know how soft a
woman is.

He kisses her neck.

EVAN
Or else the rest of his life will
be rough, edged, harsh.

He kisses her ear.

CARRIE
You're nervous.

Evan blows softly in her ear.

EVAN
You can tell?

CARRIE
You're trembling.

His hand caresses her belly.

EVAN
That's you.

Carrie shivers visibly.

EVAN
Are you sure you want to do this?

Carrie pushes away a little, turns to face him.

CARRIE
Tell me about...her.

Evan looks up. His eyes are far, far away.

EVAN
She was my moon. My nights were
only darkness without her.

CARRIE
You loved her.

She studies his face.

EVAN
With all my...

Carrie closes her eyes, nods.

CARRIE
I'm sure.

He looks hurt. Ashamed.

CARRIE
Are you?

He kisses her.

They embrace, kiss again.

He brushes her hair off her neck.

Looks up at the moon as long, sharp teeth emerge in his
mouth.

Carrie moans only slightly when he bites.

The picnic blanket stains as her life flows quickly from her
trembling, twitching body.

CARRIE
(rasping)
I...I'll be a vampire soon?

Evan doesn't stop drinking.

Soon, she stops twitching.

Evan pulls up from her, blood still dribbling in a mess from
his mouth.

EVAN
Thank you.

He stands up, slowly, laying her body out in a spread eagle,
an angel, fallen, broken.



EXT. GRAVEYARD - LATER

Evan stands in front of a tombstone, the name obscured, the
dates worn away. He holds a few roses.

EVAN
I miss you.

He lowers the flowers to the headstone.

EVAN
I brought you these.

He lays them out lovingly, stands back up.

EVAN
Your favorites.

The moon slips finally behind a thick, dark cloud. The world
fades into shadow.

EVAN
Happy Valentine's day, my love.
