Danielle (voiceover): We each have our own path in life and my path lead to so much happiness and sadness... even to the very end... I had to find my own purpose of why I was born and to be granted to live such a long life. Moving to Paris actually revealed a lot of new things and also brought back some things from my past. Finally able to start a new journey in life with my best friends which was one of the best things ever but... I never thought things would get so out of control... More death, new secrets, more betrayal, more chaos, more heartbreak, falling in love and even something that I didn't think that could possibly happen... Before I can reveal what that is, listen to our stories of the new chapters of our lives...
A Promise Fulfilled
(8 months earlier, Danielle and Leon are watching the city of Paris from on top of the Eiffel Tower during the night.)
Danielle: Amazing view...
Leon: Yeah, it is.
Danielle:...You said that you used to live in Paris for a while. Have any friends here that you've missed?
Leon: Yeah but...I rather not see him.
Danielle: Why not?
Leon:...Too many things from the past that haunt me.
(Danielle notices Leon's saddened expression and leans her head on his shoulder. He gives a small smile.)
Danielle: You don't have to talk about it if you don't want to. Just tell me when you're ready...Remember that I'm here. I'm always here.
Leon: (holds her close and kisses the top of her head) Thanks, Dani.
(Their moment is interrupted when Danielle's phone starts to ring and sees that it's Davina calling. Danielle puts her on speaker phone.)
Danielle: What is it, Vivi?
Davina: How much longer are you lovebirds going to keep me waiting?
Leon: (laughs) We're not lovebirds, Davina.
Davina: Says you but I know the vibes I get from you two every single day. Hurry up and jump!
Danielle: Okay! Okay! And keep your weird vibes to yourself!
(Leon laughs as Danielle hangs up on Davina.)
Danielle: Let's do this.
Leon: Before we do, you promised you tell me why you wanted to jump off the Eiffel Tower.
Danielle: Well, there are two parts to this... Ten years ago, I promised my best friend that she and me would jump off of the Eiffel Tower but we didn't get that chance.
Leon: What happened?
Danielle: Let's just say that things didn't go well.
Leon: And the second part?
Danielle: I'll tell you some other time.
Leon: Wow, you're really not going to tell me?
Danielle: I didn't say I wouldn't tell you. I'll tell you some other time.
Leon: Fine...when you're ready.
(Leon takes Danielle's hand and she shudders by the touch. She sees him look deep into her eyes which causes her to be drawn to it.)
Leon: You know...sometimes it feels like that we were fated to meet.
(Danielle is thrown off by Leon's words and also once again shudders when he kisses her cheek. He then holds her hand more tightly.)
Leon: Ready to do this?
Leon: (smirks) Then let's go, Your Majesty.
Danielle: Why do you always call me that?
Leon: Hmm... I'll tell you some other time.
(Danielle laughs and they slowly take a step together, jumping off of the Eiffel Tower as Davina watches them.)
(In the present day, A young woman is strapped to a chair in a torture room.)
(The young woman is extremely quiet but seems to be in pain from something. She sweats as she hears loud voices and begins to lose it.)
Woman: STOP IT! LET ME OUT! LET ME OUT! LET ME OUT! ENOUGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Due to her sudden outburst, glass starts to shatter everywhere and the room begins to shake. Suddenly a needle flies out and sticks her in the neck, calming her down.)
A Familiar Face
(At their favorite club Concrete, Danielle and Davina sit in a private booth while the party goes on. As Danielle is enjoying the beauty of Paris, Davina seems to be deep in thoughts while smiling at her best friend which Danielle soon notices.)
Davina: Nothing just... You know that I love you, right?
Danielle: Yes you weirdo. But isn't that kinda random to ask me that right now? Something wrong?
Davina: No, no. It's... I feel I can never repay for everything that you've done for me. Marcel and you saved my life. Marcel put his life on the line for me while you- You showed me a whole new world. Taught me about magic, that I should accept it and embrace what I am so that I can choose what I want in life. Marcel risked his life for me so that I could have a normal life and I still want that. But I'm grateful that you showed me not to throw my magic away so easily when I never really used it... I just wanted to thank you. I don't think I ever wouldn't have gotten this far without either or you. Especially you.
Danielle: Hmm... that was quite deep, Vivi.
Davina: (giggles) Don't make fun of me!
Danielle: I'm not, I'm not. But you're welcome and you don't need to repay me.
Davina: That's what you think but I really do.
Danielle: Okay, when if something ever pops up in my head, I'll let you know... And Vivi?
Danielle:... Love you too.
(The best friends sweetly smile at each other but Danielle's smile quickly fades away she sees someone, the woman from the magic prison. The drink that Danielle was holding soon falls, the glass breaking into pieces and the sound echoing where she can only hear the sounds of the shards falling to the floor and eventually the woman's voice...)
(Danielle snaps out of trance after hearing Davina's voice and looks at a worried Davina.)
Davina: Are you okay?!
Danielle:...Yes... I'm fine.
Davina: I think we should go, you look pale. Come on.
(Davina grabs Danielle's hand and leads them to the exit. Danielle looks back to where the woman was, finding her gone.)
Unexpected Dream/Need A Ride?
(Danielle wakes up when she hears someone knocking on the front door. She gets up from her bed and leaves her bedroom to go answer it and sees Leon standing before her.)
Danielle: (yawns) What are you doing here this early?
Leon:...I had to see you.
Danielle: Why? Is there an emergency? Did something happen?
Leon: (skakes his head) No.
Danielle: Then what is it?
(Leon slowly walks towards Danielle as she backs away from him. He grabs her and holds her close to him as they stand in the middle of the living room.)
Danielle: What are you doing?
Leon:...I can't keep hiding how I feel.
(Leon kisses Danielle slowly and she begins to reciprocate as she wraps her arms around his neck. Before things can escalate, a doorbell is heard. Danielle wakes up and looks confused to why she had that dream.)
Danielle: What the hell was that?
(The doorbell rings again and she quickly gets up and leaves her bedroom to answer it. Once again, she finds Leon standing before her.)
Danielle: Oh my god.
Danielle: You're not going to do anything, are you?
Leon: Do what? What are you talking about?
Leon: Okay, somethings's wrong. You look pale...
Danielle: I'm fine! You're imagining things!
(Leon puts his hand on Danielle's forehead which suddenly makes her relax.)
Leon: Seems that you don't have a fever.
Danielle: (giggles) Leon, I'm fine.
Leon: You sure?
Leon: Really? (moving his hand to her cheek) You're acting weird.
(Leon moves his hand to her chin and tilts her head up to look at him.)
Danielle: I...I, uh... What are you doing here?
Leon: (removes his hand) Thought that I could give you a ride.
Danielle: You know that I have my own car, right?
Leon: Yeah but... Just come on and let me give you a ride.
Danielle:...Alright. I'll go take a shower and get ready.
Leon: I'll go wait by my truck...Dani?
(Leon moves a lock of hair from Danielle's face.)
Leon: Remember what I told you while we were still New Orleans? Don't hide anything from me. If something's wrong, just tell me.
Danielle:...Yeah...Yeah I remember. How could I forget?
(Leon gives her a small smile and leaves. Danielle takes a deep breath and sits on one of the chairs in the living room. She picks up her cell phone from the table and texts Davina about needing to talk.)
Danielle: What is going on with me?
Our New Lives
(As Leon is leaning on his truck waiting for Danielle, he looks at the scenery of Paris. He seems to be in deep thought until Danielle walks out the apartment building. He smiles when she walks towards him and he opens up the truck door.)
Leon: Your chariot awaits, Your Majesty.
(Danielle laughs and gets into the truck. After Leon closes the door, he sees a young woman in bloody clothing walking nearby. He starts looking pale until he hears Danielle say his name.)
Leon: Uh, yeah...(getting into the car) Sorry about that.
Danielle: You okay? You look like you've seen a ghost.
Leon: No. No. I'm fine. Just imagining things...
(Leon starts the truck and drives. The scene now heads over to Davina who is taking many photos children playing, adults that walk by, birds sitting in the trees and even a chapel. As she is happy with the photos that she has taken, she sees Leon's car arriving and heads over to it.)
Davina: Good morning!
Danielle: Let me guess, you got up early because you wanted to find some good photos to take and judging by your ecstatic mood, you got them?
Davina: Correct! Come on, let's get to school.
Leon: Can you wait for her for a minute, Davina? I need to talk to her about something.
Davina: Sure. I'll be over there, Dani. (walking away) See you later, Leon!
Danielle: I'll tell you if you tell me what's wrong with you first.
Leon: (sighs) I don't know what's been going on with me but... I just feel like something is coming.
Danielle: You too, huh? I've been thinking the same thing... Sometimes, I feel like something bad is about to happen.
Leon: Do you think Davina feels that way?
Danielle: No, she's been the same as usual. Her lovable and adorable self.
Leon: (chuckles) I guess that's good for us then... (noticing Danielle's body shaking a bit) You okay?
(Not getting an answer from her he puts his hand around the back of her neck, bringing her head close to him so that he can kiss her forehead. She immediately relaxes from this.)
Leon: I'm not going to let anything happen to Davina or you.
Danielle: I don't want anything to happen to you either. I'm not really worrying about myself. As long as Davina and you are fine, then everything will be okay.
(Leon has a small smile on his face and starts to laugh when he sees Davina secretly spying on the two of them from the front of his truck and is seemingly taking a photo of them with her cell phone. When she notices that he sees her, she starts to run away.)
Leon: I think you should go talk to Davina before she gets the wrong idea.
Danielle: (sees Davina) Oh for pete's sake!
(As Danielle gets her stuff and gets out of the car, she smiles at Leon and thanks him. She chases a giggling Davina and Leon looks at Danielle one last time before driving off to work. Danielle finally catches Davina.)
Danielle: Hand over your phone, Davina!
Davina: (giggling) Fine! Fine!
(Davina gives Danielle her cell phone. When Danielle sees the photo of Leon kissing her forehead, she doesn't seemed by the photo. She gives the phone back to Davina. She then links arms with her as they walk to school.)
Davina: You're not going to delete it?
Danielle: Nah... It doesn't look bad. I mean it's nice.
Davina:...I knew it.
Danielle: Not this again. Davina, it's a nice photo, okay?
Davina: Whatever you say!
Danielle: Now give me the camera so I can see those photos!
Davina: (giving Dani her camera) Anyway, there's something you wanted to talk about. You didn't want to talk about it over the phone so it must be something really important.
Danielle: Umm, yeah.... Vivi, your photos are amazing as usual. Before I tell you, come here!
(Danielle hugs Davina as she holds the camera in front of them and takes a photo. They both are happy with the result that came out.)
Davina: I love it! Another photo to add to the friendship album! Now what did you want to talk about?
Danielle:...I had a dream before Leon came to pick me up.
Davina: What kind of dream?
Danielle: Before I tell you what it is, I don't want you giving me that look that you always give me when it comes to Leon!
Davina: Alright, alright. I swear!
Danielle: Good. Now this dream isn't a kind of dream I usually have. It was of Leon and me.
Davina: Go on.
Danielle: It started with me being woken up from hearing someone knocking on the door. I got out of bed and left my room to see who it was. When I got to the front door, it was Leon.
Davina: Go on.
Danielle: I started asking him questions but he just started walking towards me and he...he...
(Davina starts to get excited from Danielle's story.)
Davina: Go on!
Danielle: He started to hold me in his arms, telling me that he can't keep hiding how he feels...Then he kissed me and...I started to kiss him back. Then the dream ended.
(Danielle notices how quiet Davina is and waits for a response.)
Davina: I'm also going to be your maid of honor at your wedding right? Not just Malia, right?
Danielle: Stop that!
Davina: Come on, Dani! It's no surprise that you finally had a hot and heavy dream of Leon!
Danielle: What's that suppose to mean?
Davina: What I mean is that the chemistry between the two of you was pretty obvious. Everyone can see the sparks whenever the two of you are together.
Danielle: Chemistry? Sparks? You have got to be kidding me.
Davina: Oh, really? So you're saying that your never felt any attraction while you're with Leon?
Danielle:...There's nothing going on between us.
Davina: That's not an answer to my question. Dani, I can see it! Whenever you're with him, you seem more alive than you already do. Also, whenever I see him hold your hand or that time when he kissed your cheek back when the two of you were up on the Eiffel Tower--
Danielle: Wait! How do you know about that?
Davina: Umm...I had brought some binoculars when we first arrived in Paris...
Danielle: You sneaky little-
Davina: I wasn't being sneaky, I was observing! There's a difference! Now what made him kiss your cheek that time?
Danielle: Vivi, I love you but that's for me to know and for you (taps Davina's nose) to keep your nose out of.
(Davina chases after Danielle who walks ahead of her into the college. Next, Leon is shown...)
(In a beautiful mansion, maids and the butler are seen preparing the home for a grand party. Mylène is making a fuss over the preparations.)
Mylène: Everything must be perfect. This has to be the party of the century!
Butler: Yes madam.
Mylène: Have you seen my son? Usually he's already downstairs by this time.
Butler: He's already left.
Mylène: Already? He's always left by this time not before it. Why would he...
Butler: He said there was something he had to do before he went to work.
Mylène:...What is he up to?
(Lost in thought, Ancil is in his office seen staring up at the Eiffel Tower.)
Ancil: I wonder how you're doing...It's been a long time.
Assistant: Sir. Is something troubling you?
Ancil: Troubled is the word I would use. I guess I'm longing for something or someone... Maybe both.
Assistant: A lost love?
Ancil: Heh, something like that. Anyway, did you
(Ancil runs to where she is but ends up bumping into somebody. He looks to the young woman on the ground then looks back to where he saw Cassandra and sees that she's no longer there. He then helps the young woman on the ground. Unable to see her face yet, he checks for injuries on her arms and legs as gathers her things.)
Ancil: My apologies, are you alright?
Woman: I'm fine.
Ancil: Are you sure? Really? No injuries?
Woman: Thanks for being concerned but I'm really fine. But aren't you in a hurry?
Ancil: I was... I thought I saw someone from the past but I may have been mistaken...
(The young woman accepts her things from him but as they both finally look at each other at the same time, he becomes stunned. The young woman is revealed to be Davina. She smiles at him and thanks him for his help. She stands up and he quickly does the same.)
Ancil: I'm sorry but have we met before? You just look very familiar...
Davina: Are you trying to hit on me?
Ancil: No! I mean you're very beautiful but-
Ancil: You really do look familiar. You've never seen me before?
Davina: No. Believe I'm pretty sure I would remember you if I knew you. Now where do you think you've seen me?
Ancil: I don't know...but it was along time ago.
Driver: Excuse me but young master, we really should get going.
Ancil:...Yes... Yes, I'm coming.
(As Ancil leaves, he looks back to where he saw the woman and sees that she's no longer there.)
(Davina enters her and Danielle's apartment to find Danielle watching The Conjuring. She smiles at the sight.)
Davina: Is it really the time of day to be watching horror movies?
Danielle: Honey, there's nothing wrong with watching horror movies during any time of the day.
Davina: (laughs) Whatever you say. By the way, you and Leon are coming with me to a party tonight.
Danielle: A party?
Davina: Yeah. I met a guy-
(Danielle quickly hits the pause button to stop the movie.)
Danielle: Do tell! I'm listening!
Davina: Well, I kinda bumped into him and he seem sorta mesmerized by me. Then he asked me if we ever met because I looked very familiar.
Danielle: Humph, one of the oldest lines in the book. But hey, if he's mesmerized by you, he's got good taste.
Davina: It's actually strange for some reason because he did seem familiar.
Danielle: In what way?
Davina: I don't know...I really can't explain it. Anyway, we talked and he invited to a party he's throwing tonight. He said that you and Leon can come too.
Danielle: First, tell me. Are you interested in this guy?
Danielle: Alright, I'll go to see if he's good enough for you.
Davina: Thanks, Dani!
(Davina goes into her room and sees a small gift box on her bed. She goes to pick it and opens it to find a cookie necklace. She turns around to see Danielle standing in the doorway.)
Danielle: Like it? Brought them from a street vendor. (holds up the milk necklace) I get the milk necklace and you get the cookie necklace.
Davina: Is this because of us always going to Sunrise Bakery?
Danielle: It's a tiny part of the reason. But I really wanted us to have some type of friendship jewelry and when I saw these...(helps Davina put on the cookie necklace) they were perfect.
Davina: (laughs) Thanks Dani...this means a lot.
Danielle: Of course it does. And you can never take it off!
Davina: (helps Danielle put on the milk necklace) What happens if either of us do?
Danielle: Well it would mean that something is very wrong.
Davina: That would mean trouble. Well let's hope that neither or our necklaces come off.
(The doorbell rings and Davina goes to answer it. She returns with a box tied with a ribbon. She opens it to find a beautiful black dress.)
Danielle: I can guess who that is from. (turning to leave the room) Oh, what's the guy's name?
Davina: Ancil Roux.
(Danielle pauses and slowly turns back to Davina.)
Danielle: Ancil? ...Ancil Roux?
Davina: Yeah. (hugs Danielle) Thank you for the present. I really love it.
Danielle: Sure... Of course.
Davina: Wear your best dress, okay? We have to be the best looking there.
(Davina goes to get ready and after Danielle leaves the room, she looks stricken.)
Let's Get This Party Started
Party of the Century
(About to leave, a light shines through the library doors.)
Ancil: Is anyone in the library? Those can only go in as long as me or my mother are present.
Butler: No, young master. No one is in there, I'm sure of it.
Danielle (voiceover): It was then, at that moment... I realized that was the beginning of the end. That very moment began the end of our journey.
