Edward (and Bella)
Edward sits at the window. Bella boards the bus.
Bella: (as she approaches) Oh God, you’re back already?
Edward: Just to show you something. Then I’m gone.
Bella: What is it?
Edward: Sit down and I’ll show you.
Bella sits beside him.
Edward: (pulls envelope out of his pocket) My ticket. I’m leaving tonight for Transylvania. To find my ancestors.
Bella: Your family came from … wait. You know you’re not actually a vampire. And even if you were, you’re not related to Vlad the Impaler.
Edward: (sighs) I am a vampire and I am descended from Vlad.
Edward: You don’t believe me.
Bella: Of course not.
Edward: Then how do you explain my escape from prison?
Bella: I don’t know – a friend who eats flies?
Edward: No! I turned into smoke.
Bella: Right. Okay then. Let me see you do it now.
Edward: I can’t. I … wouldn’t want to attract attention to you.
Bella: To me? (laughs again)
Edward: You hurt me to the quick, Bella. But never mind. I will go to Transylvania and return with riches, and then you’ll not be able to deny me.
Bella: Watch me.
Edward: You’ll see.
Edward: Now, if you’ll excuse me.
Edward: I’d like to get off the bus now.
Bella: You’re not going to turn into a bat and fly out the window?
Edward: The windows don’t open.
Bella: (stands) Have a nice life, Edward.
Edward: I will Bella. When you’re finally in it for good.
Edward exits the bus.
