What a literary juggler I’ve become. Every day, I must wrestle myself with what to write. The new script? Post a new entry? Another secret admirer letter? Oh shit, did I just admit to being the author of 7,213 secret admirer letters to 7,213 random people?
While lying in bed last night (no, I’m not going there, pervert), I decided to discuss the diminishment of bread in my diet, effective as of January 2nd. Sad but true. How I love my bread, my biscuits, my scones! Bread and everything related to it negatively effects my performance at CrossFit. Yesterday, while doing box jumps, I found myself jumping higher. Something about the combination of my blood and bread that increases the force of gravity. Since I know so well the taste of bread, biscuits and scones (yum yum yum and yum) and I don’t know what it’s like to jump really high, I’ve chosen the latter. Once I’ve jumped four feet high, I’ll test to see if the chemistry in my body has changed by increasing my bread intake.
I was wrong. This is the penultimate posting regarding the script entitled Descent. Here ya go–
EXT. LOG CABIN - DAY A small rubber handball bounces against the porch. It lands in Will's hand. He suddenly jumps off the porch and climbs up a tree. Footsteps land on the porch. Damian reaches for the doorknob. Will pulls his arm back and shoots it directly into Damian's back. Damian spins around. Searches for the pitcher. Roaring in hysterical laughter, Will falls out of the tree. DAMIAN Jesus, Will. Damian rushes over to Will. The boys continues on with his hysteria. WILL You should have seen your face. You were so scared. Damian thinks twice before handing Will the ball. DAMIAN Hate when you do that shit. WILL I don't do it that often. DAMIAN Once is enough. WILL Making nice-nice with Kate? DAMIAN Her aunt, Mrs. Argrove, isn't well. Tears well up in Will's eyes. WILL How? What's wrong with her? DAMIAN Don't know. She's a manic. Will stands up. Tosses the ball into the woods. WILL Damn! What about Kate? Will she... DAMIAN She's focused exclusively on her aunt. Will starts to walk away. DAMIAN (CONT'D) Will, wait! WILL What? DAMIAN Where's Charlie? A concerned expression washes over Will's face. EXT. WOODS - DAY Damian and Will walk side by side, tossing the rubber handball between them. WILL You think Charlie stalked you? DAMIAN Well, Kate didn't send him. She only saw him once in the office. WILL And you believe her? DAMIAN Why would Kate lie? WILL Cause she's a bitch. DAMIAN You two have got to find common ground. WILL I don't got to do anything. Damian sticks his arm out. Prevents Will from going any further. Several yards away, Charlie lies unconscious. Damian rushes over to Charlie, feels the man's heartbeat against his neck. DAMIAN Go get Kate. WILL Me? DAMIAN Fine. I'll get her. You carry Charlie to the cabin. WILL Right... Damian laughs as Charlie runs off.
