SETTING: ‘Old Goth Estate’, Neucrest
SEASON: WINTER, approx 2020
Cassandra is sitting alone in her house. She looks at her phone nervously. Once, twice, and then again.
When it finally rings, she jumps.
KEVIN MARSCAPONE HEY, I'M OUTSIDE.
CASSANDRA GOTH OK OMW.
Her hands are shaking when she leaves her first floor bedroom to attend to the front door. KEVIN is dressed in a suit. His pant-legs are damp and icy.
She blocks the door and doesn’t allow him to enter the premise. KEVIN backs away, sensing her tense mood.
KEVIN MARSCAPONE IT'S NICE TONIGHT, ENJOYING THE AIR.
CASSANDRA GOTH (pause) YEAH.
KEVIN looks around strangely.
CASSANDRA GOTH (with sudden strength) SO. YOU LIED TO ME.
KEVIN looks at her and tenses his eyebrows. He is squinting painfully with the reflective snow.
KEVIN MARSCAPONE I... DIDN'--
CASSANDRA GOTH YOU'RE A FUCKING VAMPIRE! YOU FUCKED ME WHEN I WAS SLEEPING, YOU FED ON ME, I DON'T EVEN --
KEVIN is alarmed at the accusation but maintains a guilty stance.
KEVIN MARSCAPONE I NEVER FED ON YOU CASSANDRA.
CASSANDRA GOTH BULLSHIT~!
CASSANDRA begins to tear up and cry.
KEVIN MARSCAPONE I'M NOT WHAT YOU THINK I AM. PLEASE LET ME EXPLAIN.
CASSANDRA GOTH (defiant) WHAT, SO YOU CAN CONTINUE THE LIE?
KEVIN MARSCAPONE I USED TO FEED ON BLOOD, YES, I FELT POWER FLOW THROUGH ME WHEN I CONSUMED THE DREAMS OF OTHERS... BUT I GAVE IT UP. I GAVE IT UP. I AM NO LONGER... THAT WHICH I WAS.
CASSANDRA GOTH, violently crying, runs in the house and slams the door.
