Scream Queens: FOTP Row (Ep. One)
Clack. Clack. Clack. Clack. A girl in high heels is running on a side walk. Suddenly her phone buzzes. "Shit!" She mumbles in a panic. She keeps running across Greek Row, the street filled with nothing but Fraternity and Sorority houses. The girl is carrying two cases of beer. Her phone buzzes again, and as soon as she looks at the phone screen she bumps into a frat boy. "SHIT!" The girl yells, dropping one of the beer cases. "Sylk, hey! Sorry about that, are you ok?" Asks the frat boy. "Yea Aidan, I'm just super late for KNT's first huge party of the year." Sylk answers, looking at her phone and picking the beer back up. "Here let me help you. That's where I'm headed anyway." Aidan says, extending his arm to grab the beer case that fell. "Thanks. I really appreciate it. Do you mind running with me? Taylor is texting me nonstop wondering where I am." Sylk says, panting. "Damn, are you in trouble? I can help you get out of it if you want?" Aidan asks. "No it's fine. I'll just deal with the consequences. This is my first offense so it won't be TOO bad." Sylk says.
"Where is that bitch with our booze? I sent her to get it 30 minutes ago and she isn't even responding anymore." Taylor says angrily, pacing her bedroom. Music can be heard booming outside along with people shouting and laughing. "Calm down Taylor, you made her do it without her car. It's gonna take a bit for her to get back here on foot." Hannah says, sitting on the bed. "Hannah, why don't you call her. She may be more willing to answer if it's you calling." Diamond says while fixing her makeup in the mirror. Suddenly the door bursts open and Hylia pops in. "Guess who's here with more booze for us!" Hylia moves over to reveal Sylk standing behind her. "There you are bitch, we've been waiting. I'm coming down from my drunk feeling." Taylor says, grabbing the two cases of beer and sees Sylk is also carrying a bottle of vodka. "Where did you get that?" Hannah asks. "Oh, um, Aidan told me y'all might want it and that I should come get it. That's why it took me so long." Sylk says. Diamond gets up and grabs the bottle out of Sylk's hand, giggling. "Thank you Sylk! We'll discuss your punishment for being tardy in a bit." Taylor says as he slams the door in Sylk's face. Sylk stands in the door way and starts texting Aidan. She types out "Thank you for the cover up. I owe you" and presses send.
"Circle around ladies, it's time to get our drink on!" Taylor says, pouring the vodka into a shot glass for herself, Hannah, Diamond, and Hylia. Hylia quickly shotguns one of the beers and throws it on the ground. "Cunt, you better clean that shit up in the morning. I don't want your beer stains all over my plush carpet." Taylor says before giving Hylia her shot glass. "Yea yea whatever lets just down these. I have a hot guy waiting for me downstairs that I'm wanting to ride." Hylia says. "First, a toast." Taylor begins. "Ladies, it has been an amazing three years with you. We all went through pledgeship together. We all failed Mr. Onika's class together. We all threw up in the bathroom together. You are my sisters for life. This is our last year at Kappa Nu Theta, so let's make it our best yet!" Taylor says, extending out her shot, toasting. The rest of the girls follow and cheer, then they all down their shot. "Alright, lets go finish partying then we can haze some bitches." Taylor says.
FOUR HOURS LATER
"Tonight was fun, wasn't it girls?" Taylor says, pacing the now empty living room. Red solo cups, streamers, beer cans, and various liquid spills are scattered across the house. The pledges are all lined up against the wall. The active members are standing in front of them as Taylor paces in between both of them. "I SAID TONIGHT WAS FUN, WASN'T IT GIRLS!?" Taylor yells. All of the pledges collectively say "Yes ma'am, it was." Taylor smiles and lets out a small laugh. "That's good to hear. However, there is a problem. One of your pledge sisters received a task tonight. It was a fairly simple task." Taylor then stops pacing in front of Sylk. She stares directly into Sylk's eyes. "Sylk here was instructed to get two more cases of beer for the party tonight. Hylia was feeling a bit thirsty. She felt it actually better for her if she went to the nearest frat house and fuck one of the boys there!" Taylor says. "Wait, what? I never..." Sylk says, before Taylor yells to be quiet. "On the bright side, she did get us some vodka out of it! So we're going to take it easier on you. Choose FIVE of your fellow pledge sisters now." Taylor says to Sylk. "...What do you mean?" Sylk says, sounding nervous. "Just choose five pledge sisters." Taylor says, not backing down. Sylk then turns, looking at her pledge sisters, not knowing who to choose. "CHOOSE RIGHT FUCKING NOW OR CHOOSE NO ONE." Taylor yells. "Taylor..." Hannah says trying to calm her down. "Shut up, Hannah." Taylor snaps back. "Um ok, Royale...Lia.....Rachel.....Slay.....and Michelle." Sylk says, shaking. "Hm. Perfect. The rest of you girls can go. The five girls that were called on and Sylk, y'all stay."
"What do you plan to do with these girls exactly?" Hannah says to Taylor as they enter the parlor room of the house. "I'm gonna leave them shaking even harder than when I had them lined up a few minutes ago." Taylor responds. She walks to the back wall and picks up the old KNT revolver that was mounted on the wall. "Whoa Taylor what then fuck..." Hannah whispers, startled. "Settle down, whore. The gun hasn't been loaded in decades. We're gonna have a bit of fun with these girls. It's Russian Roulette time." Taylor says.
In the dining room, Royale, Sylk, Michelle, Lia, Slay, and Rachel all sit at a small, round table. Hylia and Diamond stand around them. "Alright ladies, we're gonna play a fun game!" Taylor announces as she and Hannah enter the room. "It's called...." Taylor continues as she slams the gun down on to the center of the table. "Russian Roulette." All of the pledges then look at the gun and Taylor in a panic. "Oh so you're just gonna fucking get one of us killed?" Lia says, with fear and anger in her voice. "This is against the law. I'm not risking my life for this." Rachel says. "Shut up hags. This revolver is the trusty KNT revolver. It was used in the great campus massacre of 1965 by the killer Skyline O'Hara. When he used this gun to kill a group of KNT sisters, he somehow missed every shot. If you are a true KNT sister, this gun will not harm you in anyway." Taylor says. "Now, since Sylk is the guilty party here, we'll start with her. Sylk, pick the gun up and start playing." Taylor says.
Sylk takes a moment. She looks at the gun, then at her pledge sisters, then at Taylor, then at Hannah. When Sylk looks at Hannah, Hannah turns away, not being able to watch. Sylk then lifts his arm up to pick up the gun. Her arm trembling. She picks the gun up, holds it against her head, a single tear streaming down her face. She pulls the trigger and a single click is heard. Nothing. A huge sigh of relief comes from Sylk. "Congrats Sylk! You are a true KNT sister! Now, pass it on to the next person." Taylor says. Sylk, still shaking, hands the gun to the person next to her. Rachel takes the gun from Sylk, holds it to her head, pulls the trigger, and a click is heard. She then passes it to Lia who takes it, holds it to her head, pulls the trigger, and hears a click. The pledge sisters begin feeling relieved and more confident, feeling like nothing is actually in the gun. Slay then takes his turn, followed by Royale, and then it's Michelle's turn. Michelle has absolutely no worry at this point. Hannah stands behind Michelle, now watching as she also knows now that Taylor was telling the truth about the gun not being loaded. Michelle then pulls the gun up to her head, pulls the trigger, and BANG. Blood splatters all over Hannah, and the surrounding girls as Michelle falls to the ground. All off the girls let out a giant scream in sheer terror. Hannah stands still, mouth wide open. "WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO" Lia shouts at Taylor. "The gun hasn't been loaded in years! How was I supposed to know it had a bullet still in there?!" Taylor shouts back. "What do we do?!" Diamond yells. "The only thing we can do.....hide the body and clean the house up before anyone finds out what happened." Taylor says. "We have to call the police...." Hannah says, still in shock. "Absolutely NOT." Taylor says back. "We can't just act like this never happened, she was our friend." Hylia says. "Friend? That's kind of stretching it don't you think?" Taylor says back. "You're fucking psychotic. I'm calling the police." Lia says. "If you call the police Lia I swear to Christ I will do everything in my fucking power make sure it's YOU that gets blamed for this." Taylor says, sounding pissed. "This is all my fault..." Sylk says, tears coming out of her eyes. "Ok everyone SHUT UP. Here's the plan. Let's get her wrapped up in a tarp, and get her in my car. Then we can all drive out to the lake and dump her in that old, dried up well that no one even uses anymore. Then we call come back, clean up the house, clean ourselves off, and we pretend this never happened." Taylor says. "People are gonna be asking questions...." Diamond says. "I know. Rachel, Slay, you both live in the same dorm as Michelle correct? If anyone asks, you all went home together after this. Michelle was too drunk to get home by herself so y'all took her to her room." Taylor said. "I have no words for what you are actually saying right now. How could you be saying this?" Hannah says. "What I said to Lia applies to you as well, Hannah. Don't get brave." Taylor responds.
All of the girls wrap Michelle up in a tarp, put her in Taylor's car, and drive out to the well. Once they are at the lake, they take Michelle out of the car and carry her to the well. "Any last words, girls?" Taylor asks. Silence. "Dump her." Taylor says. The pledges then let go of Michelle's body and it falls into the well. "Remember, just stick to the plan and no one will ever know. As far as everyone is concerned, Michelle stumbled out of her room as a drunken mess and someone kidnapped her." Taylor says.
