225. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Friday, April 13th, 5:00pm
Candice (and Justin)

 

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 and Sandi

 

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.

12. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Note: Strong language, adult themes.

Tuesday, September 12th, 5:00pm
Sandi (and Candice)

 

Sandi sits at the window seat daydreaming about Jeff.

Candice: I didn’t think you were going to work today.

Sandi: (jumps hearing Candice’s voice, then pats the seat beside her) I wasn’t going to but Lana called in sick and The Grump is coming in today.

Candice: Fuck, no.

Sandi: Yeah.

Candice: I wish I could take him off your hands.

Sandi: Eeh, he’s not that bad. Sure, he’s loud and whiny, but he’s pretty easy to please.

Candice: I’ve got Mr. Avon today.

Sandi: Shit. So you’ll be up to your elbows in makeup before you even start. And isn’t he the one who wants you to wear nothing but rubber?

Candice: (nods and whispers) That rubber bra chafes something awful.

Sandi: You should tell him no.

Candice: Tried that once. He refused to pay.

Sandi: Ooh, was Madame very upset?

Candice: I couldn’t sit down for a week. So, how was your weekend with the preacher?

Sandi: (sighs and rests her head on the glass) Heaven.

Candice: The Grump is in for a treat then.

Sandi: (nods and smiles) I’m going to correct the fuck out of him.
