Olympia High School
*The scene consists of various shots of the school. Athena is speaking as a voice-over.*
Athena: Olympia High School is not like any other high school. For one thing; the principal is a centaur. For you idiots out there who don't know what that is; it's basically part human and part horse.
Athena: And another thing; some of the students aren't human at all.
Athena: But besides that, it's like any other high school. Pretty much everyone worships the ground the preps and the jocks walk on. I don't see why, but that's just how high school works. And Olympia High is no exception.
Setting-The cafeteria at lunch
*Athena is sitting alone at a table. Artemis comes and sits next to her.*
*Athena smiles at Artemis.*
Artemis: Did you finish your rough copy of the English essay yet?
Athena: You bet! I got it done in like a minute. Did you?
Artemis: Nah. I haven't even started it.
Athena: Let me guess…you were too busy daydreaming about shooting Aphrodite with an arrow?
*The camera zooms in on Athena.*
Athena *soliloquy*: That other girl is my best friend, Artemis. She and Aphrodite are bitter enemies. I don't particularly like Aphrodite, but I can stand her more than Artemis can. Those two hate each other to the core.
*End of Athena's soliloquy. The scene returns to normal.*
Artemis: Kind of! I can't stand her!
Athena: Well then, you're not going to be happy to know that she's coming in our direction.
*The camera zooms in on Aphrodite walking towards their table.*
*Aphrodite reaches the table.*
Aphrodite: Well, well, if it isn't the ugly tomboy and her nerd friend.
Athena: Well, well, if it isn't beauty but no brains.
*Aphrodite ignores Athena so she can concentrate on insulting Artemis.*
Aphrodite: You know, Artemis, you could totally be popular if you got yourself an upgrade. Like plastic surgery.
Artemis: No, thanks. That's your thing, not mine.
Aphrodite: *scoffs.* Please. I don't need to do anything to make myself look pretty. It's all natural.
Athena: Beauty is only skin deep.
Aphrodite: Yeah right. That's just what ugly people like you say to make themselves feel better.
*Artemis stands up and slams her hands on the table in anger.*
Artemis: Oh no, you did not just call my best friend ugly!
Aphrodite: Actually, I did.
Artemis: Listen and listen well, blondie. You can insult me all you want, but you cannot get awaywith insulting my best friend!
*The camera zooms in on Artemis, who is in the principal's office.*
Artemis *soliloquy*: And then Aphrodite and I got in a huge cat fight, and that's how I ended up here.
*The camera zooms in on Apollo, who walks into the office and sits down next to Artemis.*
Apollo: Hey sis.
Artemis: Hey Apollo. How'd you get in here?
Apollo: I pulled another prank.
Artemis: What did you do this time?
Apollo: Set off a stink bomb in the boys' locker room. If you ask me, the stink bomb had no affect whatsoever, 'cause the boys' locker room already stinks enough. What are you in for?
Artemis: I got in a cat fight.
Apollo: With who?
Artemis: With Aphrodite.
Apollo: I bet you totally kicked her butt.
Artemis: Oh yeah.
Setting- In the school courtyard. School has just ended.*
Athena: So, how'd it go in the office?
Artemis: I got a week's worth of detention.
Apollo: Me too. High school sucks.
Artemis: No kidding.
