Hillary (and Drommen)

 

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

Hillary: Hey.

Drommen: Let’s go on a date.

Hillary: (sits up straight) A real one?

Drommen: Yeah. A real one.

Hillary: (narrows eyes) Are you going to give up … you know.

Drommen: Yep. No more asking people if they want to watch me masturbate on the bus.

Hillary: You’re not going to hate me for making you give it up?

Drommen: No, I’ve made a decision regardless.

Hillary kisses him on the cheek.

Drommen: (smiles) Where do you want to go on our first date?

Hillary: Your place.

Francine: What will you do now that Hillary’s moved out?

Drommen: (shrugs) I dunno.

Francine: You could date her. I know you like her.

Drommen: I suppose. Now that Phillipa’s gone. Only …

Francine: Only you’d have to give up your hobby.

Drommen stares at her.

Francine: You think I don’t know what you do on the bus?

Drommen: It’s not something I really want to discuss with my sister.

Francine: Nevertheless. You should think about it. She’s worth it.

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.

Drommen and Phillipa

 

Phillipa: Why are we on the bus again?

Drommen: We’re going for a coffee.

Phillipa: I told you, I have coffee at home.

Drommen: Oh right.

Phillipa: You’re obsessing over that girl again, aren’t you?

Drommen: I’m not obsessing. I’m worried about her. I want to keep an eye on her.

Phillipa: (takes his hand) You can’t save the world, Jake.

Drommen: Maybe I can save my little part of it.

Phillipa: And then what? You go back to corrupting them with your little fetish?

Drommen shrugs.

Phillipa: Bring your little fetish home to me. She’s not on the bus today.

Drommen: I’ll come back to your place later.

Phillipa: I won’t be there later.

Drommen: Tomorrow then? Next weekend?

Phillipa: Now. Or you take your chances.

Drommen: I’ll take my chances.

Hillary (and Drommen) (and Zoey)

 

Hillary is asleep in the window seat with drool running down her chin. Drommen takes the seat beside her.

Drommen: (shaking her) Hey, Jessica. Wake up.

Hillary stirs but doesn’t wake up.

Drommen: Jessica! It’s time to go home.

Hillary: (slapping at him weakly) Lemme alone.

Drommen: Come on. Don’t make me carry you off the bus.

Hillary: (kicks at him and mumbles louder) Lemme alone!

Drommen is shaking her when Zoey boards the bus.

Zoey: Leave her alone, asshole.

Drommen: She’s drunk. I just want to get her home.

Zoey: Get the fuck away from her!

Drommen: What the fuck’s your problem?

Zoey: You are! You became my problem the day you asked me to look at your dick. Now go away before I call the cops.

Drommen: I know where she lives. We’re friends.

Zoey: (scoffs) Yeah, I’m sure you are.

Drommen: Are you going to take care of her?

Zoey: Yes!

Drommen: Fine, then.

Drommen changes seats.

Zoey: (sits. To Hillary) Are you okay, honey?

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: (slurring drunkenly) Fuck do you want?

Drommen: Have you been with that Sean guy?

Hillary: What’s it to you? What do you care?

Drommen: I do. You’re not taking care of yourself. And Sean certainly isn’t taking care of you.

Hillary: He’s takin’ better care of me than you have. Dick.

Drommen: I’m taking you home.

Hillary: I’m not going home. Don’t you have a date to go to or somethin’?

Drommen: I do. But you’re more important.

Hillary: Fuck off.

Drommen stares at her for a moment.

Hillary: Sean’ll look after me. An’ if you try to take me home, I’ll scream.

Drommen: Have it your way.

Drommen changes seats.
