59. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right


Sunday, October 29th, 2:00pm
Madigan and Ken


Madigan: (looking down at a picture on her lap) I don’t believe it.

Ken: There’s your proof.

Madigan: Barb has been having an affair with your brother all this time?

Ken: She’s your sister.

Madigan: (snorts) She’s your wife. I feel like I’m living in a soap opera. Where are they now?

Ken: On a beach in Barbados, according to the private detective. (points at the photo) I recognize the resort. We went there for our honeymoon.

Madigan: (shakes head and looks up at him) So what are you going to do about it?

Ken: Ask her for a divorce. And marry you, if you’ll have me.

Madigan: What about the lipstick on your collar?

Ken: That was just Barb trying to make you jealous. She already knew about our affair.

Madigan: (sighs) I should have guessed. (looks at him sharply) Wait, was that a proposal?

Ken: I don’t have a ring or anything, but … yeah.

Madigan: (blinks away tears) I want to say yes. But what are family gatherings going to be like?

Ken: (huffs out a laugh) About as awkward as they have been since we started seeing each other behind Barb’s back. God knows how long she’s been screwing my brother.

Madigan: (takes his hand) I wonder if they’re as happy as we are when we’re together.

Ken: I hope not. So, what do you say? Will you consider marrying me?

Madigan: (frowns) My dad’s going to get sick of walking us down the aisle to meet you.

Ken waits silently, gazing into her eyes.

Madigan: Let me think about it.
