42. Scene 1


The scene opens in Nikki’s flat. He is sat on the sofa, flicking through the channels, when he hits the news channel.


Reporter: And the body of Amie Campbell, college student who spent her last night with the band Dying Breed, has been found washed up. It is believed it was dumped out to sea, but that is all speculation at this time... (the sound fades out)


Nikki: Shit! Shit shit shit shit shit! (he fumbles with his phone and calls Maria. She answers on the second ring)


Maria: Hi.


Nikki: Oh my God Maria I’ve just seen the news! I’m so so so so sorry! (we hear a blip. Nikki takes his phone away from his ear and we see him read a message from Dan. ‘Police are here. Be here ASAP’)


Maria: Yeah.


Nikki: How long have you known? Why didn’t you call me?


Maria: (sniffs) Just didn’t feel up to it.


Nikki: Oh my god Maria I am so so sorry. I was hoping she’d be OK. Oh my god (pause) the police are ‘round at Dan’s. I gotta go. I’ll meet you in an hour and a half for coffee if you want? We can talk.


Maria: Sure. Don’t get arrested.


Nikki: I’ll try. Love you.


Maria: (hangs up)


The scene switches to Nikki pulling up at Dan’s and launching himself out of the car.


Inspector Mildrew: Nice of you to join us, Nikki.


Nikki: Well you were harassing my mates, so…


Mildrew: Were you or were you not the last people to see Amie Campbell alive?


Nikki: Excluding her killer, yes.


Mildrew: Let’s think in real terms. We have no idea whether she got home or not. We only have your word for it that you dropped her off.


Kenny: (interrupting) why would we kill her?


Mildrew: Maybe it was accidental. Drugs overdose. Choked on her own vomit. We’ll soon know, anyway.


Dan: We didn’t kill her.


Mildrew: I wish I could believe you.


Nikki: Are you detaining us? Because if not I’m off to meet my girlfriend for a coffee, and to help her through this sad time, and then we’ll be rehearsing. That OK Officer?


Mildrew: I like you. You’re feisty.


Nikki, Kenny and Dan walk away.
