Holly (and Edward)
Thursday, October 9th, 7:00pm

 

Holly stares out the window. Edward sits beside her.

Edward: Hi.

Holly: (starts crying)

Edward: Are you okay?

Holly: (sobbing) My boyfriend left me!

Edward: That bastard!

Holly: I know! And I’m pregnant! And my husband is going to kill me!

Edward: Your husband?

Holly: Yes! What am I going to do? My husband is going to know it’s not his!

Edward: I can take him out.

Holly: (wipes her eyes and takes her first good look at him) What do you mean, “take him out?” Who the hell are you?

Edward: I’m Edward. I mean take care of him. You know… (hisses, showing his plastic fangs)

Holly frowns and stares at him silently.

Edward: Is your husband home now?

Holly: (stares for a moment longer, considering) Actually there’s this guy named Joel…
