When at a rock concert on a Friday night, Maria finds herself thrown into the heavy metal music world. Surrounded by girls, drugs and rock shows, Maria soon becomes part of a runaway train hell bent for the top, but held back by the singers tortured psyche and a disaster that hit far too close to home...


69. Scene 1


Nikki and the band are in Kenny’s garage, discussing the problem that faces them.


Nikki: We need a solid excuse.


Dan: Damn right, or we’re all going down, thanks to Kenny’s bright idea.


Kenny: Hey, don’t fuck with me man, you went along with it.


Nikki: Only because you delayed us to the point we had no choice.


Reece: Stop. This won’t help us at all, will it? (stands) we need to say we were drunk. That could have resulted in all our stories getting mushed up: we don’t remember what really happened. Also, we were drunk, which would mean we wouldn’t be lying under oath.


Dan: I’ll get a DUI charge.


Nikki: Not necessarily, I told the cop that you drove because you were the only one that hadn’t had a drink.


Kenny: And anyway, DUI is better than murder, right?


Dan: Yeah, whatever. I’m off to see Joan, you never know how much freedom you’ve got left.


Nikki: And I’m off to see Maria ‘cause I’m pretty sure she’ll hate me soon.


The scene switches to outside Maria’s house, Nikki knocking on the door.


Maria: (opening the door) Hey babe (laughs)


Nikki: Wow. Never call me babe again, OK.


Maria: You got it honeypie. We going for coffee?


Nikki: Sounds good to me. I think we need an adventure date one day.


Maria: OK, I don’t like the sound of that but I trust your judgement, I’ll just get my coat.


At the coffee shop.


Maria: The usual, please.


Waiter: No problem (leaves)


Maria: So, how’s it all going?


Nikki: Not bad I guess, major label are listening to our demos and stuff.


Maria: Not bad, not bad. And your run-in with Inspector Mildrew.


Nikki: We call him Inspector Dickjuice, but yeah. I just told him the story, nothing less. I’m kinda suspicious of Kenny and Reece.


Maria: Why?


Nikki: They just seem very eager for this to go away. And they were alone with her while me and Dan took you home, they could’ve given her something then.


Maria: Why would they?


Nikki: I don’t know. That’s where my suspicion stops.


We see Joseph Azuza at the door. He spots Nikki and approaches.


Azuza: I thought I’d find you here.


Nikki: Oh, hi.


Azuza: (handing a document) this is a contract for you to sign. Read it in detail first, OK. It also requires your manager’s signature. I must dash, I have a train to catch down to London. I’m talent scouting.


Nikki: Well, um, thanks. We’ll be in touch.


Azuza: Good man (he leaves, scene fades)
