// OLD GALANTOME ESTATE //
Cassandra is sitting alone in her house. She looks at her phone nervously. Once, twice, and then again.
When it finally rings, she jumps.
HEY, I’M OUTSIDE.
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.
IT’S NICE TONIGHT, ENJOYING THE AIR.
KEVIN looks around strangely.
(with sudden strength) SO. YOU LIED TO ME.
KEVIN looks at her and tenses his eyebrows. He is squinting painfully with the reflective snow.
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.
I NEVER FED ON YOU CASSANDRA.
CASSANDRA begins to tear up and cry.
I’M NOT WHAT YOU THINK I AM. PLEASE LET ME EXPLAIN.
(defiant) WHAT, SO YOU CAN CONTINUE THE LIE?
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.
