INT. DONNA’S ROOM-DONNA AND JOSIE’S HOUSE-SANTA MIST-NIGHT

Donna is sitting alone in the dark surfing the web. She sloths down into her bed more and more as she mindlessly clicks through various websites.

Donna gets up to open her window and turn her fan on.

Donna picks up a sweater from the floor, puts it on and falls back into her bed in a free fall manner.

She crawls her way back to the top of the bed, and puts her hood on. She rest her laptop on her thighs.

DONNA’S ROOM

The room is large. It is clean but extremely messy.

Important papers, clothes and clumps of hair are on the ground scattered about with little carpet to be seen.

Her bed is jammed in the corner of the room with a lamp right above it.

DONNA

Donna clicks through various websites while she pulls on her hair, mindlessly.

She stop pulling her hair suddenly, but keeps her hand in the mess of her hair, she scoots over to reach for her dead phone.

Donna waits, then tosses her phone carelessly back into the oblivion on the floor.

Donna sits in the dark and pulls on her hair some more.

A KNOCK brings her back into the present.

DONNA

What.

JOSIE(OFF SCREEN)

Sleep?

DONNA

No

JOSIE (OFF SCREEN)

Why?

DONNA

Because.

JOSIE (OFF SCREEN)

(Hesitates)

He was a monster, wasn’t he?

Donna perks up slightly from her bed and looks around her room as if she seen a flamboyant ghost.

DONNA

(settling)

Yes.

JOSIE (OFF SCREEN)

(icy)

You think he did it, don’t you? You think he killed Stella.

DONNA

(Carefully)

Yes.

The doorknob slowly turns and the doors sheds golden light, attentively.

A haunting figures cast it’s bright murk on the room, the figure wanes into a shapely human form.

Josie stands at the door for 5 seconds, leering at Donna in silence.

Donna looks back at Josie, lovingly, but ready.

Josie walks as if she’s counting her steps and rigidly sits on Donna’s bed.

Donna shuffles to accommodate her.

Josie sits down with no body movement or language towards Donna.

Donna nervously wipes her mouth with a cover hand.

JOSIE

(vacant)

I use to see them together.

Donna looks around as if she has seen the ghost again.

DONNA

What, what?

Josie turns her whole upper body toward Josie as if she was being controlled by a remote.

JOSIE

(Robotically)

I use to see them, together.

Donna rubs the back of her neck while looking up at Josie.

DONNA

Like, “together” as in student and teacher. Or, “together” as in statituory rape and abuse of authority?

JOSIE

(vacant)

You, know “together”.

DONNA

I don’t know what you mean.

Josie smirks and pulls back her body a little.

Josie was riveted with the half-opened door.

JOSIE

He use to-he use to keep us all together.

Josie started to slightly drool.

Donna squints her eyes.

Donna catches and opens her whole body in shock.

Donna SLAMS her laptop down and shoves it on her night stands.

Several things come sprinkling down to add to the messy floor.

DONNA

He sold to you, didn’t he?

Josie smiles, wrly with dry drool making way for new drool.

Josie yawp the half open door.

Josie’s mouth and eyes got wider as she sites more erect.  Completely fixed on the half open door, fruitless.

DONNA

It would be stupid to ask you how high you are right now.

Donna tips her head as she looks onto her friend.

Donna Sits her head back on her headboard and BANGS her head twice.

DONNA

(crescendo)

it would be stupid for me to ask you anything!

Josie shakes a little bit, then returns to her statue state.

Donna sits back on her bed and folds her arms.
