Scene 30- DeathVine Street -Part 1

( Backworth household- 9 am) 30th September  2017

Danielle: ( voice off screen) ( laying in bed) Well today is the 30th, the day i could possibly end my life and save my whole family. Apart of me just doesn't want to leave my bed, I don't want to go and met Steve and some psycho who is trying to kill me what fun is that. Why can't i just stay in bed with my future husband and wee baby and pretend that this is just any other day but unfortunately there is no chance that i can do that because if i don't show up me and my family are dead so it's either me or them and clearly i am going to chose me. Never in a million years did i think that i would have any of this nor did i expect any of this to happen. I have the love of my life fast asleep next to me and the thought of losing him is making me kind of go mad, the thought of my son having to live his life with out his mum makes me so upset like I'm already failing as a parent ( Alarm goes off) I should probably get up, maybe if i sneak out the house it will be easier because i know as soon as he opens his eyes and speaks i will question leaving.

( Ronaldo rolls over hugging Danielle)

Ronaldo: Please please please don't be thinking about how you are going to die, i have heard about a million of your theory's and i don't think i can possibly handle one more.

Danielle: You're in luck, I'm not thinking about how i am going to die, I am thinking about how i am going to spend the rest of my life once i beat some psycho ass. 

Ronaldo: Well that's a change, do tell.

Danielle: Well first of all i was thinking we should get married in a church with our friends and family, maybe a big wedding but i will not be wearing some big puffy gown that makes me look fat. I draw the line there, for our honeymoon i was thinking we could whisk away with Milo to hmm ( Pause) Portugal, yeah Portugal sounds good to me. We will come back to our brand new house either here or in New York. Hopefully Eva has met a boy she loves but maybe not getting pregnant just yet she if far too young. You will be a detective working in the big leagues.

Ronaldo: I like the sound of that very much especially if you are by my side and god there will not be a big puffy gown at our wedding ( Smiles) 

( Danielle gets a text message) ( Danielle reads it)

Hey D, It's me Steve , I know this is a long shot but just wanted to check if you were up for today or not? I understand if you aren't. If possible get back to me, If you don't I'll still be at the coffee shop any way.

Ronaldo: Are you going to go?

Danielle: Yeah I have to, I need to know everything before i can put this all behind me.

( Danielle gets up and picks out clothes)

Ronaldo: I just need you to be safe.

Danielle: I know, ( Walks in front of Ronaldo) I doubt i will be able to see you after i meet Steve so I just want to tell you I am really lucky to be able to have found you in my life and i know i say this a lot but you mean the whole world to me and i don't know what i would have done if i never met you, i would have been so lost in my life. Ever since i met you even though i have been going through a really hard time you showed me that there is always going to be light at the end of the tunnel even if you don't think there is or even if you don't see it. You give me hope that there is always going to be good even though you are going through the worst time in your life. You and Milo are the best thing i have ever had in my life and i love you so much don't you ever forget that, I swear to god if i die i will not have you moping about for year and years on end. I won't allow you to be in your 40's and so unhappy with your life that it makes you consider killing yourself. I want you to live your life like that day could be your last. You need to promise me that you won't give up on your life no matter how bad it may be because i swear to god Ronaldo i will come back to haunt you. 

Ronaldo: Alright in the case that you do die i won't stop living my life but i won't be forgetting you just like that because girl you are the love of my life and i will be damned if i ever let myself forget you. I'm not letting you die not now and not ever. You hear me?

Danielle: We are meant to be.

Ronaldo: Yes, We are meant to be. Now as much as i hate saying this you need to go and get ready.

Coffee Shop down town- 10 am

( Steve sitting with his latte when Danielle comes up to the table)

Danielle: Steve.

( Danielle sits down at table opposite him) 

Steve: Thank you for coming Danielle, I never actually expected you to show.

Danielle: For a while i wasn't either but here i am. I really need this to be over and done with.

Steve: Alright, I will get to the point. I have stage 4 melanoma that has worked it's way into my organs. I'm going to die.

Danielle: Oh my god, I'm sorry Steve. What are your treatments?

Steve: I'm not planning on taking any treatments, I am just planning on waiting it out and letting fate takes it's course. ( really bad cough)

Danielle: You can't just gave up on your life like this, you have so much to live for don't throw it away.

Steve: I have nothing left to live for, Once upon a time i had my best friend Callum and of course i had Rachel too but most important Danielle i had you, you were my girlfriend and my best friend combined into 1 and i lost you because i couldn't help you with what you were going through and i lost a kid that wasn't even mine. Honestly i have nothing left and after all the wrong i did, I honestly think this is the best thing for me.

Danielle: How long have you left to live?

Steve: Doctors say it could be weeks or months but they don't think i will make it past a year and neither do i.

Danielle: I'm sorry that you are going through this alone, is there anything i can do?

Steve, I want you to hear me out, I made a lot of mistakes, all my life i made mistakes and i never meant to hurt you in any way. I got lost down the way and i was in denial to the point i couldn't see i was hurting you. I just wanted to make my peace and say sorry for the mistakes i have made and the mistakes that i have continued to make.

Danielle: Steve,I forgive you, I forgive you for everything. I just want you to have the peace you need but I'm sorry that i couldn't be any more help than i am. 

Steve: Trust me if you knew all that i have done then you wouldn't forgive me so easily. 

Danielle: I don't care about what you have done in the past, You weren't there when i needed you but i just want you to have what you need.

Steve: You will care one day, Thank you.

Danielle:( Looks down at watch) I'm not trying to be rude but i have to be some where and I can't be late.

Steve: It's alright, I'm just glad you took time out of your day to meet with me. Sorry it couldn't be on good terms. Be careful out there you hear me, the worlds a dangerous place.

( Danielle gets up and leaves thinking about how the person she once loved is going to die. )

Paul: Maybe a bit of both. Thought you were meeting that person today.

Danielle: Yeah well I froze my ass off there for three hours and they didn't turn up so they can go screw themselves.

Paul: Danielle, I would be careful what you say. If this person hears the things you are saying then you are dead for sure. 

Danielle: At this point i couldn't care less if i died or not, all i care about it protecting my family. 

Paul: You don't really mean that.

Danielle: I bloody well do, I'm sick and tired of people threatening me and my family. Do people think this is some sick game?

Paul: I don't know Danielle but you need to be careful. 

Danielle: I just don't understand why they wouldn't show up.

Paul: They were probably trying to psyche you out.

Danielle: What am i meant to do ?

Paul: Don't walk the streets alone especially if you are with Milo because god know what there plan is.

Danielle: Trust me  I won't.

Paul: Have you any idea who it could be?

Danielle: All i know is they would leave me notes saying "Roses are Red, Violets are blue" and yadda yadda.

Paul: Wait what?

Danielle: They would start sweet and then turn violent.

Paul: Danielle, You need to get out of here right now and call Ronaldo. Don't come back here!

Danielle: ( Stands up off chair) What do you mean? I can't not come back. Sam tell me what it is!

Paul: I don't know their name but I'm pretty sure it's some one here.

Danielle: Here? 

Paul: Yes some one here.

Danielle: How? How do you know this?

Paul: One night i was minding my business, The jail was in pure darkness but i heard this note being scrapped into my cell. 

Danielle: What did it say?

Paul: " Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue, You're Pretty Inspiring and The work You do. "

Danielle: They will come after you.

Officer Deryck Rogers: I'm so glad to be off Front desk duty.

Officer Amy Foster: So am I, I don't think i could spend another mind being all friendly to all those visitors day in and day out, pretending to be happy.

Officer Deryck Rogers: Nah I just like the action. 

Officer Amy Foster: I like the action just as much as you, maybe even more.

Officer Deryck Rogers: If there is any action maybe it'll be best for you to stay behind me and let the men do the work.

Officer Amy Foster: Let's see how a big boy like you would deal with lets say a prison riot.

Officer Deryck Rogers: We'll there is no way anything like that is happening here any time soon.

( April punches Danielle) 

Danielle: Maybe i deserved that. But you deserve this too ( punches April back) 

April: Where do you think you get off hitting me?

Danielle: Could say the same to you, They should have sent you away to a mental hospital instead of this place. 

April: Oh sweetheart you would have been sat right beside me.

Danielle: Only in your dreams. 

Paul: Is this really what gives you joys April? Hurting my niece! (angry tone)

April: Ah yes, I almost forgot this piece of trash is your niece. Your clearly not Jake's brother because thankful his parents didn't have another crackhead like him so you must be Sophie's Brother.

( Danielle attacks April and Drags her to the ground punching her)

Danielle: You don't have the right to talk about my father.

( April and Danielle both stand up and the Inmates pass April a weapon) 

Danielle: Typical taking the easy way out. No wonder nobody loves you. Not your parents considering the abandoned you, Your son has a hatred for you and goes through his day pretending he doesn't know you and boy he could not care if you were to drop dead.
