Maria [Season 1]

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...


70. Scene 2


The scene returns to the café. Nikki and Maria are eating and people are coming and going as usual. It is mildly busy. The camera zooms in on a random family.


Man: Have you heard about that band?

Woman: Which one? The one with the dead girl?


Nikki overhears and begins to listen.


Man: Yeah, that one. I think that’s the singer over there (he points to Nikki, who waves)


Woman: I think you’re right. We’re sharing a café with a killer.


Nikki: (walking over) I’m not a killer. I wasn’t involved! I don’t know what happened to her, but I wasn’t there.


Man: You’d say anything though wouldn’t you, if it got you sales.


Nikki: The truth will come out, OK. Trust me on that (he heads back to his table) Maria, this whole thing is killing me. I’m gonna go talk to Dan, OK. I’m gonna ask him…his thoughts on my theory. I’ll see you soon. I love you.


Maria: (standing) you sound like you’re off to the gallows, Nikki. Don’t rush off, finish your food. Ring him and tell him to pick you up from here in half an hour.


Nikki: (nodding) yeah, OK (he picks up his phone and begins calling. Dan answers) hey man.


Dan: Hey (we see Dan in his apartment, Joan next to him) what’s up?


Nikki: I need to talk to you. I was wondering, could you meet me in like half an hour. Maybe pick me up from the café just down from my place.


Dan: Sure, what’s it about?


Nikki: (glancing at Maria) Amie. Don’t worry, OK. Just meet me (he hangs up)


Maria: See. Now finish your food.


Nikki: Yes mum.


Half an hour later.


We see Dan pull up outside in his car. Nikki sees him and instantly looks nervous again. He turns to Maria.


Nikki: Maria, I’ll see you soon, OK. I love you.


Maria: Stop acting so jittery. I’ll see you, OK. I love you too.


Nikki: (smiles) thank you (he stands and goes to leave)
