SCENE TEN
INT. DECREPIT WAREHOUSE (NIGHT CLUB PART)-NIGHT

Pokerface by Lady Gaga is playing right when Roulette's hench woman pushes two metal doors open. Both Kade and Storm stand behind her. Only Storm is excited. Flashing lights flood into towards them as they step into a whole different world. Everything is a different color. It is dark with the lights flashing every now and then while fog rises into the air. Everywhere there are people dancing, talking, drinking while on an upper balcony there are tables every so many feet that are filled with people gambling while a dancer is in the middle of the table. It is like nothing Storm has ever seen before. She gawks at everything. The setting can be described as intergalactic.

Everybody parts while continuing to dance to let them through. Storm looks around at interesting horny couples. Sometimes there's more than one girl on a guy then she'll look somewhere to see two men making out before finding a man and a woman making out getting a little too serious. They approach some doors. Storm finds two girls making out who briefly stop to watch her walk by. Her cheeks turn bright red but in the flashing of the lights they look green, then purple and then blue.

Roulette's hench woman leads them upstairs to an area that sort of looks over everything inside the room. Like a throne of the Roman empire who views the games. People are dancing in front of where Roulette is sitting. She is not seen at all. There are lots of people hanging around her throne area obscuring the view of her. Gradually, one person slips away before the next making way for Roulette's hench woman, Storm and Kade.

MUSIC

Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun
And baby when it's love if its not rough it isn't

fun, fun

After the last 'fun' Roulette finally comes into view. She is sitting back in a large chair smiling at a woman who hangs on the armrest. Instantly, Storm's jaw drops at how beautiful Roulette is. Slowly, Roulette turns her focus on them. She stands up clapping her hands together and all the people who once crowded the area scurry away as she stalks forward. They all watch from a distance before she comes to a stop before Kade and Storm. Behind her comes Ryker out of the shadows. He looks at the ground and Kade shakes his head.

ROULETTE

Tsk, tsk. I am ashamed of you, Kaden. You

have failed me yet again. My sexy baby is dead.

Gone. All because of you and this stupid whore

you brought along for the ride.

STORM

Um excuse me, my name is Storm.

ROULETTE

Savannah Storm daughter of Tolen Storm. Believe

me I know. I know everything. How do you think

I always won at these silly little gambling games?

STORM

Um I don't know.

ROULETTE

You should keep this in mind: speak when spoken

too other wise keep your lame-ass mouth shut. You're

way too innocent in my opinion.

Roulette sizes her up and pushes some of the hair out of her face.

ROULETTE

What happened to your brain Kade?

KADE
Huh?
ROULETTE

Did that one darling steal it the other

night?
KADE

I rather not discuss that.

ROULETTE

Sorry I forgot. You're too proper to have

a prostitute.

KADE

Adam attacked us. That is why the car is

ruined. I promise to find another one just

like it in return. Please forgive Savannah.

ROULETTE

I'm sick and tired of this!

KADE

It's not my…

ROULETTE
Savannah, Georgia? What were we thinking?

Kaden, we're not meant for the south. We should

be back in Los Angeles, New York City, London,

Paris or wherever. Or those cities on the moon.
Remember? Luna, Selene and Artemis?
STORM

The moon?

ROULETTE

Sweetie, how out of the loop are you? I own every

single night club and gay bar that is on the moon.

STORM

People live on the moon?

ROULETTE

Well they have for many years now. Almost a hundred.

STORM

I knew people were going to space all the time because of

my dad but I didn't realize…

ROULETTE

I'm not your teacher.

STORM
Oh.
KADE

We'll discuss this later, Savannah. Meet me outside

with Ryker.

ROULETTE

I knew you were brilliant, Kaden.

Ryker come forward pushing Storm away even though she struggles a bit to watch Kade while he stands there staring at Roulette. Her lips move by the music drowns out her words. Soon they leave the place entirely.

Meanwhile, Kade stands there perfectly still trying to wash all emotion away from his face as he stands before Roulette. She is beautiful but there is something seductive about her that makes one feel nervous in her presence.

KADE

What is it that you want to speak to me about?

ROULETTE

It's getting too hot here.

KADE

You're kidding.

ROULETTE

Adam is a jackass idiot.

KADE

How long did it take you to figure that out?

ROULETTE

Don't you wish to return home?

KADE
No.
ROULETTE

Not that home.

KADE

Um explain?

ROULETTE

To space. The universe. Gaia suffocates me.

KADE

Earth, most people still call it Earth.

ROULETTE

Gaia is prettier.

KADE
Whatever.
ROULETTE

The moon was exciting. Thrilling. But there are other

places. Like Ares, Mars there's even Cycnus, Mars. Or

Cronus, Saturn. There's so many oppurtunities. As long

as we don't venture to places like Ariel, Umbriel, Titan,

Dionae, Rhea…or well, any other moon but Gaia's. Also

there's the other galaxies we have to worry about.

KADE
(distant)
Andromeda.
ROULETTE

Well of course we're not going there! I told you we

weren't going home.

KADE

I can't leave.

ROULETTE

Well why?

KADE

I think I'm in love with that 'stupid whore' that I

brought along tonight.

ROULETTE

Well that's a stinkin' plot twist in your life.

KADE

You don't understand…

ROULETTE

Love is love and it sucks. Sometimes literally.

KADE

I don't want to know.

ROULETTE

Bring this team with you. They're the best.

KADE

Savannah didn't even know about people living

everywhere else.

ROULETTE

She had a strict mother.

KADE

How do you know?

ROULETTE

I told you, I know everything.

KADE

Well I'm cooler.

ROULETTE

If you insist.

KADE
Maybe.
ROULETTE

You're right. I am better.

KADE

Not about that. I might come with you if

everybody comes otherwise we remain here.

ROULETTE

You steal cars for a living, Kaden. When I say

a living, I really mean it. You steal to have

money so you can buy food.

KADE

Speaking of.

ROULETTE

Are you blind?

KADE

Some days.

ROULETTE

I'm familiar with selective hearing but so much

selective sight.

KADE

Well Roulette, you should know. I'm special.

ROULETTE

And that you are.

She throws cash at him. It slams to the ground and she starts to back away sliding her feet across the rough surface of the balcony. Kade picks it up while watching her closely. A smile spreads across Roulette's face as she sits down on her throne.

ROULETTE

Let me know.

KADE

Always do.

ROULETTE

That's why I love you little brother.

KADE

Don't call me that.

ROULETTE

Why not?

KADE

I'm not your brother by blood.

ROULETTE

Do you think I care?

KADE

Adam brings it up.

ROULETTE

We are one big family. Not one big

happy family though.

KADE

I figured.

ROULETTE
Leave.
KADE
What?
ROULETTE

I want you to leave. You're dismissed. Go

away. Bye Kaden.
KADE
Bye.

Kade turns around. Another song is playing. The Logical Song by Scooter (originally done by Supertramp) blares over the loud speakers as he walks away strolling not to move to the beat of the music with all the people dancing around him along with the flashing lights.

MUSIC

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,

a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical. And all the birds

in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily, joyfully, playfully watching me. But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible, logical, responsible,

practical. And they showed me a world where I could

be so dependable, clinical, intellectual, cynical.
