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 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 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. 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!

Lily: I was waiting to see what my tasty treat was going to be.

Edward: Weren’t you impressed?

Lily: You brought me a rat.

Edward: It’s a raccoon!

Lily: Okay, a glorified rat. You should just thank your lucky stars I didn’t let your soulmate go.

Edward: You wouldn’t!

Lily: I think she’s making friends with my pet.

Edward: The Darkness?

Lily: (points finger and makes a clicking sound) You got it.

Edward: But he only has four words in his entire vocabulary! “I am The Darkness”!

Edward and Lily

 

Lily: I thought you were leaving town.

Edward: I just said that so Bella wouldn’t know what hit her.

Lily: You’re going to hit her?

Edward: No, no. It’s a figure of speech. I’m going to kidnap her.

Lily: How does it help that she thinks you’re out of town?

Edward: Not her, her friend. If she thinks I’m gone she won’t know who kidnapped Bella. All I need you to do is take care of the other one. Whatshername. The crazy one.

Lily: You mean the one who’s about as crazy as you are?

Edward: Yeah. That one.

Lily: And where, may I ask, are you planning to steal Bella off to?

Edward: Your place.

Lily: Oh no you’re not!

Edward: You sure? I’ll throw in a tasty treat for you.

Lily: (narrows eyes) How tasty?

Edward: (smiles) That’s for me to know and you to find out.

Lily snorts.

Edward: Meet me back here tomorrow and let me know how you made out.

Lily: All I can say is you’d better make this worthwhile.
