359. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Saturday, August 25th, 7:00pm
Andrea (and Lacey)

 

Andrea sits at the window. Lacey takes the seat beside her.

Andrea: Hey there!

Lacey: What’s new?

Andrea: I got a new job! At a dungeon. I’m going to take out all my wildest fantasies on, like, a bunch of strangers.

Lacey: Take out?

Andrea: Well, you know. Anger issues and all that. But things have, like, never been better with the love life. Darkie doesn’t talk much, and you know how I love to hold a conversation, but it doesn’t, like, seem all that bad. He’s a good listener.

Lacey: Uh huh. Well, congrat–

Andrea: And you know Eddie’s left town. Good riddance. I was, like, so over him anyways. So now it’s just me and my Darkness.

Lacey: I’m happy for you.

Andrea:  Thanks! So what’s going on with you?

Lacey: Oh, you know. I–

Andrea: I so do. Isn’t life great? Just, like, really great?

Lacey: Uh huh.

Sandi (and Candice)

 

Sandi sits at the window. Candice takes the seat beside her.

Sandi: Hey there!

Candice: Hi!

Sandi: I heard about your big news! Congratulations!

Candice: Yep. Getting married, going back to school. It’s like I’m growing up.

Sandi: I won’t be with Madame very much longer either.

Candice: Oh no?

Sandi: (smiles) Jeff and I are having a baby.

Candice: Oh my God! (hugs her) That’s wonderful!

Sandi: Yeah. Can’t exactly whip guys when I’ve got a baby bulge. And anyway, Jeff’s looking for a job out of province, so we’ll be moving soon. I hope.

Candice: Is the church going to take him back?

Sandi: I think so.

Candice: I hope you’re not leaving too soon. I was hoping you’d be my maid of honour.

Sandi: I’d love that! Who’s Justin’s best man going to be?

Candice: (shrugs) A friend of his from Calgary. Jimmy. Haven’t met him yet.

Sandi: I wonder what Madame’s going to do without us.

Candice: She’s been interviewing people. I think she’s going to go with someone named Andrea. Apparently, she’s got more energy than the two of us put together.

Andrea (and Justin)

 

Andrea sits at the window. Justin takes the seat beside her.

Justin: Jeez. I can’t believe the bus was late again!

Andrea: Oh yeah? Is it late?

Justin: Yeah, it’s happening a lot lately.

Andrea: Hey, you wanna go out for a drink or something?

Justin: Can’t. I’m going to meet my girlfriend. She works in a dungeon.

Andrea: (sits up straight) Seriously? You can, like, get a job in a dungeon?

Justin: Yep.

Andrea: Can you take me there?

Justin: Sure. You have to be a certain kind of person to be able to work in a place like that. It’s all like S&M and all that.

Andrea: I’m way ahead of it already. Just ask my ex … Well, you could if he hadn’t left town.

Justin: He into the whole whips and leather and stuff?

Andrea: (shakes head) Eddie was more the bitey type.

Candice sits at the window. Justin takes the seat beside her.

Candice: Hey loverboy, long time no see.

Justin: Yeah, I’ve been working on getting out of my contract with Mr. Splin … that guy I was working for.

Candice: You free now then?

Justin: Just about.

Candice: Great. Madam’s looking for a bouncer at the dungeon. You interested?

Justin: Do you think she’d hire me, me being a client and all?

Candice: I don’t see why not. You might have to stop being a client though.

Justin frowns.

Candice: (smiles) I can take care of you privately if you like.

Justin: (smiles back) When can I start?

Candice and Sandi

 

Candice: I can’t believe Madam called us in to work a double shift.

Sandi: We knew after the third movie came out the dungeon would get busier again.

Candice: (sighs) Yeah. Oh well. My favourite new client is coming in tonight.

Sandi: Justin?

Candice nods happily.

Sandi: Really like him, do you?

Candice: Kinda.

Sandi: I’m happy for you.

Candice: Thanks. So what’s going on with the preacher these days? Not working yet?

Sandi: Nope.

Candice: I’m surprised he hasn’t asked you to quit. Or have you brought him over to the dark side?

Sandi: (snorts) Whichever, I just wish he’d decide what he wants to do. I don’t mind being the breadwinner ‘n’ all, but he’s been miserable sitting around doing nothing ever since we got married.

Candice: Tell him to get involved with a group for wayward souls. God knows we get enough of those at work.

Sandi: The scared and the curious.

Candice: And now the Ana-wannabes.

Sandi: (rolls eyes) Yep. You may have something there.

Candice: I can’t believe you’re coming back to work.

Sandi: Yeah, hell, I’ve got to make a living, right?

Candice: Doesn’t the preacher make enough?

Sandi: Jeff’s suspended from work.

Candice: (looking shocked) Because you guys got married?

Sandi: Yep. Apparently him marrying someone who worked in a dungeon is too much for the church to handle.

Candice: So what is he gonna do?

Sandi: Take it to the higher-up.

Candice: You mean …

Sandi: Yep, the big guy himself.

Candice: Damn.

Sandi: Let’s hope not.

Jeff (and Candice)

 

Jeff sits beside the window alone.

Candice: (taking the seat beside him) Hey, aren’t you Sandi’s boyfriend?

Jeff opens his mouth but says nothing.

Candice: You’re Jeff, right?

Jeff: Yes …

Candice: Sandi told me all about you. I work with her.

Jeff: At the …

Candice: Dungeon, yeah. She says you’re going to save her.

Jeff tugs at his clerical collar.

Candice: It looks like all you want to do right now is save yourself from this conversation.

Jeff: (laughs) You’re very astute. What exactly did Sandi tell you about me?

Candice: She told me you spent a ‘heavenly’ weekend together.

Jeff: That we did.

Candice: So are you going to make an honest woman out of her?

Jeff: I’d like to. But I know she enjoys her job very much.

Candice: And I’m guessing you do too.

Jeff nods.

Candice: Have you ever thought about checking out where we work? I mean, for yourself … not to save everyone there.

Jeff: I couldn’t …

Candice: There are plenty of things that I would think you ‘couldn’t’ do.

Jeff looks down at his hands and smiles.

Candice: (bumps his shoulder with hers) Struck a nerve?

Jeff: (laughs wryly) I suppose I owe it to Miss Fantasia to see where she spends her days. She’s familiar with my workplace, after all.

Candice: I’m sure she’d be thrilled.

Jeff: (looks her in the eye) Thank you.

Candice: For what?

Jeff: For helping me see the light.

Candice: (slaps his knee) You’re a funny guy.
