Excerpt from a script called "Lord of the Flies"

The layout looks odd. I don't know what's going on with it. :/
 
JACK                                                             
This is for you, beast. Stay away from us, or we shall      
attack and kill you. Understood? Great.                     
                                                                           
He thrusts the head down onto the stake and blood      
splats onto the boys.                                  
                                                                           
JACK                                                             
Hunters! Back to Castle Rock.                               
                                                                           
They runs, dragging the body along behind them.        
                                                                           
Flies buzz around the head as blood drips from it.     
The sun has set and it is dark. Simon walks up to      
it.                                                    
                                                                           
SIMON                                                            
Hello? Is anybody here? Jack? Hello?                        
                                                                           
A spotlight on the head.                               
                                                                           
LORD OF THE FLIES                                                
Welcome Simon.                                              
                                                                               
SIMON                                                            
Who was that? Come out. I’m not frighted.                   
                                                                           
LORD OF THE FLIES                                                
I am here, Simon. Right in front of you.                    
                                                                           
SIMON                                                            
But. But you’re-?                                           
                                                                           
LORD OF THE FLIES                                                
What am I?                                                  
                                                                           
SIMON                                                            
You’re the lord of the flies. What do you want with me?     
Leave me alone!                                             
                                                                           
LORD OF THE FLIES                                                
No. You will never get away from me, Simon. You will be     
here forever.                                               
                                                                           
SIMON                                                            
You’re lying!                                               
                                                                           
LORD OF THE FLIES                                                
Oh, I’m not. Sorry to disappoint you. I exist within        
all men. All you little boys on the island. You can         
never leave me.                                             
                                                                           
SIMON                                                            
I feel sick.                                                
                                                                           
LORD OF THE FLIES                                                
Goodbye, Simon.                                             
                                                                           
SIMON                                                            
I feel...                                                   
                                                                           
He faints.
