Saturday, July 14th, 8:00 9:00pm
Hillary and Villem (and Drommen)

 

Hillary sits at the window, almost passed out, with her hand in Villem’s lap. Drommen boards the bus.

Drommen: (as he approaches) What the hell are you doing?

Villem: Nothin’ man. Just havin’ a little fun.

Drommen: Go have fun at the back of the bus.

Villem hesitates and Drommen draws back his fist. Villem moves and Drommen sits.

Hillary: Whatchu do that for?

Drommen: Because I care about you. You’re coming with me this time. No arguments.

Hillary: You gonna take care of me?

Drommen: Yes. Either me or my sister. Where are your parents?

Hillary: Don’t have none. ‘S just me.

Drommen: (puts his arm around her and helps her up) Not anymore.

Sean (and Drommen)

 

Sean sits at the window. Drommen takes the seat beside him.

Drommen: Where’s Jessica?

Sean: I don’t know who you’re talking about.

Drommen: Okay Hillary. Whatever you call her, where is she?

Sean: I don’t know.

Drommen: (grabs Sean by the collar) Look, asshole, if you fuck her up I’m …

Sean: (smiles) Gonna what, show me your dick? You should be in jail.

Drommen: (releases him) You’re one to talk. What have you been giving her?

Sean: Drugs. Whatever. She’s better off with me than she is with you. You just make her miserable. At least I show her a good time.

Drommen: She was so messed up yesterday, she couldn’t see straight. Stay out of her life. Because if I find out you’ve hurt her or allowed her to hurt herself, you’re going to wind up hurt.

Sean: It’s you she’s killing herself for, man.

Drommen: She needs help. If you care about her at all you’ll get her some.

Sean: What, like you helped her?

Drommen: (grabs him again and thinks about it for a moment, then lets go) You’re not worth it.

Drommen changes seats.

Hillary (and Sean)

 

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

Hillary: What do you want?

Sean: It’s not what I want. It’s what I got to offer. (pulls a baggie part way out of his pocket)

Hillary: Yeah, what’s the catch? Do I gotta sleep with you?

Sean: You don’t got to. You can if you want.

Hillary: May as well. What do I got to lose?

Sean: Your self-respect?

Hillary stares at him.

Sean: (laughing) Yeah I know. I’m a joker.

Hillary: You know what? You’re right. Go find someone else to fuck up.

Sean: Now now, don’t get all grumpy on me. I heard lover boy dumped you. You ain’t got a lot of choices.

Hillary: (shakes head) Right. I’m a fuckin’ loser. Get away before I infect you with my loser self.

Sean: (getting up) It’s your loss.

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!
