11. Scene 11
Ariadne and James are sitting under a bus shelter and it’s raining, they are both soaking and grinning, huddled together.
James- Why do you never believe me?
Ariadne- Do you blame me? After the first time you took me out?
James- Does this count as our third date then?
Ariadne- If disappointment over lack of propriety/
James- Come on, it was the best date of your life.
Ariadne- It was definitely different.
James- And fun.
Ariadne- Uh hu.
James- You posh girls expect too much.
Ariadne- It’s called standards.
James- Standards my arse.
He picks her up and runs into the rain, she’s screaming and giggling as he drops her into mud.
Ariadne- You bastard! You utter bastard!
Ariadne tackles him to the ground and they stop in giggle fits. James grabs Ariadne’s face and gently kisses her.
James- How do I compare to your standards?
Ariadne- You’ve completely ruined them.
