Monday, March 5th, 6:00pm
Hillary (and Drommen)

 

Hillary sits at the window. Drommen takes the seat beside her.

Hillary: Hey.

Drommen: Hi there. Sorry I couldn’t make it the other night. My sister needed me.

Hillary: That’s okay.

Drommen: Are you busy tonight?

Hillary: (sits up straight) No.

Drommen: Still got that weed?

Hillary: (smiles) Yeah.

Drommen: I’d invite you back to my place, but we’d be alone. I’ll understand if you’re not comfortable with that.

Hillary: No! No that’s fine. Sooo … what does it do to you anyway? (bats eyelashes) You said you’d tell me when I’m nineteen …

Drommen: (grins) I could show you right now if you’d like.

A man steps up and taps Drommen on the shoulder.

Man: That’s enough, Sir. I’m going to have to ask you to come with us.

Drommen: … but I was just going to …

Man: Ma’am, is this the man you were telling us about?

Hillary: No! It’s another guy!

Man: You don’t have to be afraid to tell me. If this is him …

Hillary: It’s not! It’s another guy who kinda looks like him. The other guy has a mole!

Drommen: Look, if I could just show you what I was …

Man: There’s no need for that, Sir. If you’d just come peaceably.

Hillary: No! Don’t take him! He’s not the one!

Man: You’re not the only one to identify him. I’m sorry.

Hillary: Jake–

Drommen: It’s okay. You have other things to worry about. I’ll see you later.

The undercover cop leads Drommen to the door.

Hillary: (calling to Drommen) I’ll be waiting for you, Jake!
