31. Scene 1

Scene 1


The scene opens in Nikki’s bathroom. He is standing in front of the mirror, staring at himself. After a few seconds he turns and opens the bathroom door and heads into the bedroom. We see Maria, asleep on his bed, and he walks past her and out of the bedroom door. This brings him into a hallway. To the left there is just a wall, but to the right are two doors, the first leading to a kitchen, the second to a living room. He stares down the hallway for a second, his eyes focusing on the door at the end; the exit. A white slip of paper is hanging out of the letterbox. Nikki marches up to it and yanks it out, unfolding it and reading it.


Nikki: (mumbling) ‘are you going to kill Maria too?’ (slightly louder, whilst screwing the note up) fuck!


Maria: (from the bedroom) Nikki?


Nikki: (throwing the note in the bin) coming, I just got up for a drink.


Nikki turns and walks back to the bedroom. He gets back in bed and wraps his arms around Maria. The clock on the side reads 9:26. We see the time change to 11:24, with Maria and Nikki still asleep in bed, and the scene changes.


We are at Kenny’s garage. Reece isn’t present, only Dan and Kenny are playing. Kenny starts to play a bassline similar to ‘Man Enough’ by Def Leppard but Dan cuts him off.


Dan: She’s stalking me.


Kenny: (stopping playing) who is?


Dan: The woman who left the note. She was stood outside me house this morning.


Kenny: (putting the bass down and walking over) we need to do something about her.


Dan; Like what? She knows about Amie.


Kenny: How do you know if she does or not?


Dan: (quickly) you know what I mean. She said she ‘knows our secret’. Amie is the only secret we’ve got.


Kenny: You told her, didn’t you?


Dan: What? No.


Kenny: Don’t lie to me, Dan.


Dan: Maybe, I don’t really know. I’ve been known to talk a lot when under the influence of drugs. Me and Nikki, a few years ago now, we got our hands on some weed. As soon as I’d had one drag I was giving him a run-down of every girlfriend I’ve ever had.


Kenny: I’m calling Nikki. We need to do something about her. Maybe offer her a deal, I don’t know.


Dan: (standing) how can we offer a deal to someone who never gets close enough to speak to us?


Kenny: I don’t know. I just know we need to talk to Nikki. And Reece. (he pulls out his phone)


The scene flips back to Nikki’s bedroom and his phone rings, waking him. He answers it and Maria stirs, her eyes slowly opening.


Nikki: Hey.


Kenny: Hey. Look man, the reason I’m calling is Dan. That woman is stalking him.


Nikki: For god’s sake.


Kenny: Can you meet us so we can do something about it. I don’t know what yet. But can you be at the garage in, say, thirty minutes?


Nikki: Forty-five, I’m still in bed.


Kenny: OK, I’ll call Reece too.


Nikki: You do that (he hangs up)


Maria: (Drowsily) who was that?


Nikki: Kenny (he gets out of bed) he wants us to meet.


Maria: OK, mind if I stay here for a bit?


Nikki: ‘Course not (he opens a drawer) here’s a key.


Maria: And can we go out tonight? Get food maybe?


Nikki: That sounds good. I’m gonna have a shower, you enjoy my comfy bed.


Maria: Oh I am doing.


Nikki: (Kissing her) see ya, babe.


Maria: Call me babe again and I’ll bite your bollocks off.


Nikki: (laughing) classy.
