Edward and Lily

 

Edward: … so she threatened me with a stake.

Lily: No way!

Edward: Yes way!

Lily: I think we should get her before she gets us. She’s clearly dangerous.

Edward: What do you mean, “get her”?

Lily: You know, get her. Take her down. Down to the ground. Down INTO the ground, if you know what I mean.

Edward: No.

Lily: What do you mean, “no”?

Edward: You’ve got to stay away from her.

Lily: If you think I’m just going to sit by and wait for her to come along with a wooden stake, and…

Edward: I’ll take care of her. I’ll drain her and make her one of us. That’s what I’ll do.

Lily: But … I don’t want there to be another girl vampire. You’ve got me.

Edward: So?

Lily: So, you’ve got me!

Edward: You’re being irrational.

Lily: I’m being irrational? Edward, this girl might have friends. Next thing you know, they’ll be coming after us with torches and pitchforks!

Edward: You’re just jealous.

Lily: I’m … what? Me? Jealous? No way.

Edward: Yes way.

Lily:  (turns away, mumbling) You’re insane.

Andrea (and Lacey)

 

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

Andrea: Oh. My. God. Lace, you won’t believe what happened.

Lacey: Lay it on me.

Andrea: You know that guy, right? That, like, Edward guy?

Lacey: The one you’re …

Andrea: The one I’m in love with, right. Anyway, I saw him on yesterday. Right here on the bus. Can you believe it? And so we’re making a date with it being, like, Valentine’s, and everything is going great, and then, get this: I mentioned going out for a steak and he took off!

Lacey: No!

Andrea: He jumped right … out … the fuckin’ … window!

Lacey: No. Way.

Andrea: WAY! Can you imagine? He’s, like, so scared of me now, that he jumps out the window of a moving bus!

Lacey: It was moving?

Andrea: YES! You’d think a vampire would be able to handle a little steak, so, like, it’s gotta be me.

Lacey: Wait, what kind of stake?

Andrea: (eyes wide) NO!

Edward: Who are you?

Andrea: (stares, open-mouthed) You … don’t remember me? I’m the one you were making out with on New Year’s. It was so … I can’t believe you don’t remember me! Look! (pulls down scarf to reveal her neck) You gave me this.

Edward: That certainly looks like mine.

Andrea: Who the fuck else’s would it be?

Edward: I am the only vampire around … Unless it was Lily.

Andrea: Lily? As in, like, a girl? EWWW! It was YOU! We made out! And you don’t remember!

Edward: Oh wait. I remember you now.

Andrea: (smiles) Well of course you do! Nobody forgets me. Especially guys I make out with. So, d’you want to, like, get together? It is Valentine’s Day after all.

Edward: I am kinda hungry. Wanna go for a bite?

Andrea: What do you feel like?

Edward: Something bloody.

Andrea: Steak it is!

Robert and Donald

 

Donald: So, what are we doing for Valentine’s Day?

Robert: Oh I don’t know.

Donald: I guess we should do something.

Robert: We don’t have to do anything.

Donald: We don’t?

Robert: Well, not together at least.

Donald: What are you suggesting?

Robert: I was thinking about going out with a friend.

Donald: A friend friend? Or …

Robert: Not … necessarily.

Donald: You mean you have a new lover?

Robert: I … might.

Donald: Huh.

Robert: You’re not upset, are you?

Donald: Not … well, not too upset. You could have told me though.

Robert: So what, you could fire me?

Donald: I’d never do that!

Robert: Pfft. Sure.

Donald: I wouldn’t! And anyway, I have a new boyfriend. Take that!

Robert: You do?

Donald: Yes. We’ve been seeing each other for weeks.

Robert: Then why are you still living on my couch?

Donald: Because I didn’t want to upset you!

Robert laughs.

Donald: What are you laughing about?

Robert: Just … nothing.

Donald: Huh. So you want to double date on Wednesday?

Robert: May as well. But you won’t be coming back to my place after.

Donald: Why not?

Robert: Don’t you think that would be a bit awkward?

Donald: Well I can’t go back to his place. He lives with his mother.

Robert: (slumps in his seat) There goes Valentine’s Day.
