INT. LIVING ROOM, MICHELLE’S APARTMENT, SANTA MIST, AFTERNOON
Donna lays out, relaxed on a busted couch in a dirty apartment.

THE LIVING ROOM

The grand living room is arrested with clutter scattered about like exprssionist paintings.
The worn down carpet is riddled in aged and fresh stains.
The walls are decorated with light and dark hued stains with family pictures.
An expensive table swalllows the room, it too is filled with old papers and razor blads with a decortive mirror crusted with white powder slab dab in the middle.
DONNA
Donna looks up as she see tiny dust particles dance as highlighted by the sun beam entering the home with no regard.
Donna folds her and in her lap, tits her head back and closes her eyes.
A TALL BLOND woman enters the room.
MICHELLE PIKE(31) a tall, blond, beautyifly slim woman enters the room with a beaming smile.

MICHELLE

So glad you made it. Was this place hard to find?

Donna resurrects her head back up, and nods “no” politely.
Michelle plops down on an equally dirty love adjacent to the couch.
Michelle shuffles papers off the crowded table and puts a black bag down on the edge by her.

DONNA

I’m glad to be here.

MICHELLE

So, what is the word with Josie?

DONNA

Uggh, what isn’t?

Michelle opens the bag and pulls out a LARGE BAG of cocaine.

DONNA

(Sorroful)

She can’t control herself.

Michelle begins to divide cocaine lines on the opulent mirror.

MICHELLE

(while “making lines”)

Yeah, it’s sad, she’s fucked up everyday. Not like us, we have things under control. Like, I know I can get wild.

She nugges towards the drugs.

MICHELLE(Continued)

But I know how to handle myself and my responsibilities.

Donna looks up and shakes her head in a dignified manner.

DONNA

It’s sad really, she came into my room a few nights ago, all strung out and stress out. She looks so vacate behind her eyes.

Michelle rolls back up from the mirror. she inhales deeply as she covers one nostril.
She passes a rolled up piece of paper and the mirror to Donna.

MICHELLE

She’s been getting worse since Stella, huh?

Donna SNORTS loudly.

DONNA

Yeah.

Donna exhales deeply.

DONNA(continued)

This is good stuff.

MICHELLE

Yeah, I know, I finally found someone reliable.

DONNA

That’s good, but you know, I have been worried that Stella is actually dead somewhere.

MICHELLE

(Sing-song)

I know! it’s so sad. Oh my goodness. If Father Mason actually–

DONNA

(Interrupts)

HE DID! He knows where she is.

Donna takes in another large line of cocaine.
Donna snorts loudly again and coughs violently.
Donna taps her chest delicately and squishes her whole face as she looks at Michelle.

DONNA(CONTINUED)

That one was a big one.

The two girls share a break in laughter.

DONNA(CONTINUED)

Well, he had something to do with it. that’s for sure. Josie said she use to see them.

Donna imitates Josie’s Voice as she rolls her eyes.

DONNA(CONTINUED)

(Mocking Josie)

“Together.”

Michelle stops in her chop tracks and looks up at Donna as if she seen a ghost.

MICHELLE

Wait, what does she mean by “together?”

Donna titls her head as if saying, “I’m telling you”.

DONNA

That’s what I’m saying.

The two look at each other coldly.
Donna passes the mirror. without missing eye contact.
Michelle receives the mirror while staring intently back at Donna.
Michelle looks down at the drugs nicely laid out on the mirror and notices her reflection.

MICHELLE

I look nice today.

DONNA

That’s an everyday thing for you.

Michelle takes up another line with furry.
Michelle blast all the way back in her seat, dust particles explode into the air.

MICHELLE

(reflecting)

Father Mason.

DONNA

Yep.

MICHELLE

Didn’t he get you kicked out of school?

Donna shakes her head sternly.

DONNA

He did, and he lied at meeting.

MICHELLE

He lied?

DONNA

Yeah, he lied. He pinned his little shenanigan on me. He said i was the one who was bringing weapons to school and openly threatening him.

MICHELLE

But, I heard that you did bring weapons to school.

Donna HUMS very loudly while she closes her eyes.

DONNA

Father Mason, was a freak and a pervert. Like, I had to protect myself.

MICHELLE

Wait. “Protect myself” what do you mean by that? He was harassing you?

Donna extends her hand out.
Michelle connects the mirror to it.

DONNA

He was trying to sleep with some girls I knew in my little sister’s grade. I told him if i ever saw him harassing one of those girls, I’d tell everyone who would listen. And he threatened that (mocking father Mason) “That would be the last lie you tell.”

Donna dives down to the mirror and snorts a very large line.
Michelle pinches her nose a little bit while looking at Donna.

DONNA(CONTINUED)

(Nasally)

After that. I caught him hanging out at Lisa’s pool party, you remember Lisa, right?

Michelle looks up, refocuses her sights back on Donna, and ferociously nods.

DONNA

Yeah. He fucked her, dude!

Michelle becomes wide on all sides of her face.

MICHELLE

NO! NO HE DIDN’T! SERIOUSLY? OH MY GOD, THAT’S DISGUSTING!

Donna raises her eyebrows and shimmies “yes” with her head.

DONNA

He did. And no one believed her when she told. So I came with Reggie and Howard to his home and asked to see him. He never left his house. The next day, I was getting expelled.

Michelle’s head travels down to her feet as she shakes her head.

MICHELLE

Damn, so the rumors about the brothel were true then.

DONNA

(coldly flat)

You know it was real. How the fuck do you think he and Stella became close?

Michelle looks at Donna with complete sadness and disbelief.

MICHELLE

Daaaammmnn….

Donna snorts loudly and slams the mirror down.
Michelle looks down on the ground to check if any coke spilled.

DONNA

He was a horrible person.

Michelle nods her head, and sniffs another line.
Donna lays her head back and breaths in deeply.

DONNA(CONTINUED)

Just wait and see, everything will come out about him in due time.

Donna smiles at the ceiling as she shifts her eyes back and forth, secretly.
