Stella: 5

INT. SITTING ROOM – DONNA AND JOSIE’S APARTMENT – SANTA MIST- EVENING

Josie whimsically paces the room and plops on the love seat.

Donna is sitting very tense on the couch. Her hands are deeply interwoven with each other as her leg shakes anxiously.

Josie casually picks up the remote from the cleaned coffee table in the middle of the room and turns off the Television.

Josie sits up and mocks Donna’s sitting style.

Donna keeps her eyes glued on the television, although nothing is on.

JOSIE

So, you heard they arrested him?

Donna sullenly turns to Josie and shakes her head.

Josie leans in with a fractured smile.

JOSIE(CONTINUED)

So, why are you so tense now?

Donna wildly shakes her head as she slowly touches back to reality.

DONNA

I don’t know.

JOSIE

Why did you go back to Maggie?

DONNA

I don’t know.

JOSIE

(confessing)

Our addictions are getting out of hand.

Donna blinks fast and snakes her head yes and no at the a rhythem.

DONNA

(flat)

I don’t have a problem.

JOSIE

(friendly)

Yeah, you do.  So do I.

Donna scratches the back of her neck and picks her feet up to the coffe table to relax

Donna shakes her head “No”.

DONNA

(Sing-Singly)

I don’t have anything wrong with me.

Josie leans in towards her friend while she skyrockets her eyebrow.

JOSIE

You and I have a drug problems.

DONNA

Fuck you.

Josie sits back a little bit.

JOSIE

I’m not trying to fight with you.

DONNA

Fuck you.

JOSIE

This is all becoming crazy with the whole Stella situation. We both need real help dealing with the possibility of our friend being dead.

Donna closes her eyes and tits her head back to signal fake sleeping.

Josie shrugs her shoulders, gets up, and leaves the room with no tension.

Donna opens one eye to follow Josie out with her gaze.

Donna hears a door SLAM shut.

Donna pulls out a small bag from her pocket and puts a powdery, white substance on her index finger.

Donna tilts her head to the side and closes one nostril with her free hand.

She SNIFFS the content on her index figure.

she plays with her nose for a hot second and breaths out dramatically.

Donna reaches for the remote and turns on the television

TV Reporter (off screen)

Coming up next: Distraction in the Church: How a priest and a student, lead to a mysterious disappearance.

Donna flicks the remote to one side and leans into the television.

DONNA

I love T.V.

Donna SNORTS very loudly.
