Scarred Skins

London is threatened after war is declared. A man is wanted, he knows the truth. They have to find him, uncover him and save their already torn skins.


19. Scene 19

Daniel Queen’s Funeral. Thomas is on the phone as Alex comes up to him. It takes Thomas a second to notice.

Thomas- Okay, look, I’ve got to go. I’ll call in a bit.

He hangs up

Hello, Alex.

Alex- Hello. Are you sure you should be at this man’s funeral?

Thomas- Why ever not?

Alex- I never knew you to play dirty.

Thomas- What are you suggesting, son?

Alex- You tell me, Father.

Thomas- How are you involved in all of this?

Alex- I know some people. You forget, I was in the army too.

Thomas- I know. Then why do you accuse me so cold heartedly?

Alex- Curiosity.

Thomas- Remorse?

Alex- Never. Realisation.

Thomas- And how does politics suit you?

Alex- It’s worse than war.

Thomas- Son, it is war.

Alex- Without the steal?

Thomas- Those boundaries are starting to fall, once again.

Alex- Yes. I like to stay out of that part.

Thomas- That’s just it. We are all messed up somewhere.

Freya joins them

Freya, darling, how lovely to meet you again. Shame it couldn’t be in happier circumstances.

Freya- Mr Coburn, they were lovely words you said. And, Alex, I didn’t know you knew Daniel.

Alex- I didn’t. I came to lay some flowers. How’s Ari?

Freya- Ariadne? As well as ever. Been working overtime a lot.

Thomas- James’ girl?

Alex- Yeah.

Thomas- I didn’t know you were still in contact with her.
