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.

Lacey: You’re the … Ohhhh!

Andrea boards the bus and approaches.

Andrea: Hey Lace! You met him! (sits on The Darkness’s lap) Isn’t he, like, great? (kisses him on the cheek)

Lacey: Yeaaah…

Andrea: Did he show you the new phrase I taught him?

Lacey: I’m not sure.

Andrea: (to The Darkness) Tell her what I showed you this morning.

The Darkness: Hey baby. Want …

Andrea: Not that one! The other one.

The Darkness: (smiles) Want some honey on your …

Andrea (and Lacey)

 

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

Lacey: Where …

Andrea: (holds finger up) Wait! Before you say anything I’ve, like, got to tell you about this weird friggin’ dream I had last night.

Lacey: Oh yeah?

Andrea: Yeah. I dreamt I was locked in a basement for a week and while I was there? I was with this, like, creepy gorgeous guy who only knew four words. We really hit it off though. By the time I woke up, I was in love. But the weirdest part? I got all these bite marks on my neck. Like, I don’t know where the hell they came from.

Lacey: A week you say?

Andrea: Yeah.

Lacey: Is that why you haven’t been at work for a week?

Andrea: (sits up straight) I haven’t what now?

Lacey: You’ve been totally missing for an entire week.

Andrea: No way! So it wasn’t a dream? (stands up) Excuse me.

Lacey: Where are you going? Harold’s going to be pissed if you miss any more work.

Andrea: Harold shmarold. I gotta find me some o’ my Honey Darkness!

Andrea and Lacey

 

Andrea: Ugh. I’m covered in mosquito bites.

Lacey: I thought you liked blood-suckers.

Andrea: Fuck off. Speaking of blood-suckers, it’s been, like, a week since I saw my Eddie.

Lacey: How’d it go last time you saw him?

Andrea: (cocks head) We talked a bit. Then he said he had to run. I think we hit it off okay.

Lacey: I think you should just forget about him. Find someone nice.

Andrea: What do I want “nice” for? It doesn’t matter – they start off nice but then I find out they were dicks all along. Might as well go for someone I know is badass in the first place. Save some time.

Lacey: You’ve got a point.

Andrea and Lacey

 

Andrea sighs.

Lacey: What’s wrong?

Andrea: I keep hoping to see Eddie on the bus. But he’s, like, never on anymore.

Lacey: I thought you were over him.

Andrea: I’ll never be over him, Lace. He’s my soulmate!

Lacey: Pfft.

Andrea: I didn’t expect you to understand. I just wish I knew where he was.

Lacey: Has it occurred to you that if he’s a vampire, he won’t come out when it’s daylight?

Andrea stares at her.

Lacey: (after a moment) Well?

Andrea: You think he really is a vampire?

Lacey: NO!

Andrea: I guess you’re right if he’s, like, trying to keep up appearances. (smiles) Thanks, Lace.

Lacey sighs.

Andrea and Lacey

 

Andrea: So this person, right? Sits beside me on the bus last night after work and, like, asks me out for coffee.

Lacey: Uh huh.

Andrea: And when I say no, I’m, like, just gonna go home and put my feet up? This person tells me they give fantastic foot rubs.

Lacey: So you said no … obviously?

Andrea: I don’t even know if it was a guy or a girl! I’m not taking a girl home with me! Even if she’s like the best foot rubber on the planet!

Lacey: What if it was–

Andrea: A guy? (bites lip, thinking) Then I screwed myself out of a good night.

Lacey: You gotta meet this person on the bus again.

Andrea: I gotta meet this person on the bus again.
