Opening Scene:

Girl Stands in the middle of the stage with her head down wearing flower printed dress with a white sweater with a serious look on her face but sadness in her eyes. She looks up past the audience then she puts her head down then looks up again this time at the audience.

Samantha: Hello, My name is Samantha Ann Morgan but people tend to call me Sam they say it is shorter and easy to say (chuckles a little) but I always liked Samantha better. I guess because (looks down then up)...because it was my mother's name but I am not here to talk about me (takes a breath lets out) I am here to talk about my best friend, Diana Lee Thomas. (pauses puts her head down) She is dead. She is dead because of me. (She looks up and starts pleading to the audience) She had everything and I had nothing. She was Mrs. Perfection and I was Mrs. Hi, what was your name again? You have to understand why I did it. If she was not there I could take her place I could be her. (Her voice starts to elevate) I did not want to be in the background anymore I wanted to (pauses and takes a deep breathe) She was my best friend and she deserved to die. (She walks off stage left) (Curtain closes)

Scene One:

Curtain opens.

Samantha: Why me? What did I do to deserve this? (Raises up her hands to the sky) Why am I so stupid? (Paces back and forth) I should have known I couldn't trust her. Why am I so trusting? God! I should have known. I'm so stupid. I just want to d-

Robert: Do you always talk to yourself like this?

Samantha: (Jumps) have you lost your mind?! Don't do that! You scared me half to death.

Robert: Oh, Sorry. (Looks down at the ground)

Samantha: (picks up her bag) what do you want anyway?

Robert: I was wondering if you want to go out with me this Friday?

Samantha: (looking confused) who are you again?

Robert: I'm Robert Wells my friends call me Robwizzy but you could call me Rob. I know you don't know me but I just moved in across the street from you and thought we could get acquainted a little better if you know what I mean. (Smiles big and elbows her playfully)

Samantha: (looks at him with disgust)You must be out of your cotton-picking mind if you think I would go anywhere with you

Robert: Maybe I am but at least I'm not the one who is complaining about someone stealing the guy they liked or should I say still likes.

Samantha: (infuriated) You know what?!

Robert: (smirks) what?

Samantha: Urrrgggh! I don't even know you but I can't stand you already

Robert: Why? Because I know how you truly feel.

Samantha: Trust me if you knew how I truly felt, you would not be standing here talking to me. I can guarantee that.

Robert: Really? Then go out with me and tell me how you really feel.

Samantha: Fine, you want a date, I'll give you a date. Friday. 8 pm sharp. Don't be late or I'll kill you.

(Robert smiles and walks out stage right)

Diana: Hey, Sam.(puts bag on floor)

Samantha: (stares at Diana impatiently) So, are you going to tell or do I have to wait all day?

Diana: Your going to have to wait all day (said teasingly)

Samantha: Come on tell me, did Richard ask you out? (Shakes Sam playfully)

Diana: (smirks) Yes, he did!! (They hug each other excitedly jumping around and release) Samantha: I'm so happy for you. It's about time you got a boyfriend.

Diana: I know I'm so happy! I thought you would be mad though.

Samantha: No, why would I be mad at you? Your my best friend.

Diana: I knew you would understand. It's not like he liked you anyways, right?

Samantha: Right.(smile fades a little)

(Richard walks in stage right and grabs Diana by the waist pulls into a intimate hug)

Richard: Hey, baby.

Diana: Hey, I tried to call you this morning but you did not pick up.

Richard: I must have still been sleeping. Sorry.

Richard: Sorry, Sam.

Samantha: It's okay. I know how (stops) (sees Robert coming toward her)

(Diana turns her head to see why Samantha stopped talking sees Robert)

Robert: Hey, Samantha. Who's your friends?

Samantha: Hi. This is Dye and Richard. Dye. Richard, this is Robert.

Robert: (inclines head to both) I came to offer you a ride home.

Samantha: (rises eyebrow in question) excuse me?

Robert: I said can I give you a ride home?

Samantha: No...(looks at Diana and Richard being adorable) (Gives look of disgust) Yeah. I guess so.

Robert: Then let’s go I do not have all day.

(Robert picks up her bag walks off stage right)

Diane: When did you meet him?

Samantha: This morning.

Diane: Really? He's cute.

Richard: What?!

Samantha: Well...I'll see you tomorrow. Bye.

(Samantha walks off stage right) Richard: Did Samantha seem weird today?

Diana: No. (Gets angry) Why? Did she try to come on to you or something?

Richard: Whoa! Calm down. She's just not been acting herself lately that's all I was saying.

Diana: (gets sweet again) Oh! She's just jealous that I got you that's all but you see she is over it. She's already found someone to stalk I meant you know what I mean and I think he actually might like her. Now, come on now so you can take me home and maybe you might even get a kiss.

(Diana pulls Richard off stage left)

Robert: (serious tone) you weren't really serious were you?

Samantha: (looking queer end) I am serious extremely serious.

Samantha: (smirks) Now, really?

Robert: Yeah.

(Samantha laughs)

Robert: What's so funny?

Samantha: Oh, Nothing. So, I hear you’re related to Christopher Wells, is it true?

Robert: Yeah I'm related to the bastard.

Samantha: (tilts head to side) Interesting.

Robert: Why?

Samantha: Oh, no reason...yet.

Robert: And what's that suppose to mean?

Samantha: I don't know yet. I'll tell you when I find out.

Robert: You’re strange.

Samantha: (says happily)Thank you. So, why aren't you spending (quotations with hands) “quality time” with your cousin?

Robert: Because I would rather spend it with you.

(Samantha raises eyebrow in question)

Robert: Plus, he's probably out beating his girl somewhere.

Samantha: Oh yeah, he goes out with Richard's sister what's her name again?...I can't remember it to save my life ummm.....

Robert: Leona I think it is.

Samantha: Yeah! That's it. I heard she just lets him beat her because she supposedly loves him. (rolls eyes) She's crazy. No matter how much I love a guy the first time he puts his hands on me it will be his last time.

Robert: (sarcastically) Really?

Samantha: Yes! Really. You can be such a jerk. I do not know what made me agree to this. I'm leaving. ( starts to walk off stage right)

Robert: Wait! Don't go! I'll be nice I promise, stay.

Samantha: (stops) What are you willing to do for me to stay? (turns around)

Robert: Anything you want just don't go.

Samantha: (smirks) Oh, really?

Robert: Yes, really.

Christopher: (shakes Leona) Who was that boy you was with? Leona: That was Lauren’s boyfriend, Jarred.

Christopher: (intensely stares at Leona) It had better been because you know what will happen if not, don’t you?

Leona: Y-yes, I-I know. I love you, Christopher. (Christopher lets her go abruptly turns his back on Leona).

Scene Four:

(Robert walks on stage left looking around for Samantha. He gives up and sits down to wait)

(Samantha walks on stage right)

Robert: Where have you been you told me to meet you here an half an hour ago?

Samantha: (walks in angry) Well, get over it.

Robert: What the hell is wrong with you?

Samantha: Nothing. I just want her dead. We'll do it this Saturday when she comes over my house.

Robert: Sam, you can't truly serious about killing her. She's your best friend.

Samantha: All the more reason I want her dead. Do you know what she did to me?

Robert: Is this about Richard? I know you liked him and she stole him away from you.

Samantha: NO! This is not about Richard.

Robert: Whatever she did is not worth her life.

Samantha: She watched him violate me and then when I told she said I was making it up. That I was taking drugs and consented to it. She said that I invited him that night when it was her.

Robert: Sam...(walks up to her and tries to put his arms around Samantha)

Samantha: Don't, Robert!(steps out of Robert's reach and turns back on him) I love her so much that I hate her.(long silence) I can't believe she had the nerve to sleep with him when he was finished with me. They both laughed at me called me all kinds of names then she told him to do it to me again. She told me after it was all over that she couldn't stand that I was Miss Innocent and she was not. She hated my innocence and her sin so she made us equals. (turns to look at Robert) Best friends are supposed to be alike in every way. She killed me. Now, I'm going to kill her.

Robert: Sam, I know she hurt you but-

Samantha: Hurt me? She did not hurt me. She killed me. She killed everything that I once was. Do you not understand that?

Robert: That’s not what I'm saying?

Samantha: Then what are you saying Robert?

Robert: I'm just saying that your life is not worth her life.

Samantha: Her life is my life.

Robert: No, it's not. Sam...

Samantha: You’re not going to talk me out of this. She needs to die, she deserves to die.

Robert: Look at the way you’re talking. You need help Samantha.

Samantha: I don't need help. I need to get rid of Precious Dye.

Robert: Samantha, don't be like this.

Samantha: Oh, shut up. She made me this way. Her and that bastard cousin of yours. They made Richard do it.

Robert: My cousin? Chris?

Samantha: Yes, that bastard. It was Chris and her. You know after I told and no believed thanks to Diana he took me again. He told me I was so good that he had to have me again. When Diana found out she decided to make nice with me and I fell for it like a sucker that was until I saw them kissing. That was the day she took Richard from me and the day I met you (becomes sweet and walks over to Robert). I knew we were meant to meet that day(strokes his cheek with finger). You were meant to help me get rid of her.

Robert: (grabs her arms) You need help, Sam.

Samantha: No, I need you. I need you to help me.

Robert: Don't make me do this, Sam.

Samantha: (pulls away from him and turns back on him) You don't want me, just like Richard didn't want me after he found out I was not a virgin.

Robert: No! That's not it. I want you I want you more than you know.

Samantha: (turns around) Do you love me?

Robert: Do I love you?

Samantha: Yes, do you love me? Because I love you. So do you love me or are you just like the rest of them?

Robert: No.

Samantha: Then tell me do you love me? I'll give you what's left of me to prove that I love you. (starts taking of jacket)

Robert:( walks over to Sam to stop her) No, Sam. I love you and all I need is your heart.(Hugs her close)

Samantha: (looks up at Robert) So are you going to help me?

Robert: Is this what you truly want?

Samantha: Yes...Yes, I do.

Robert: (sighs) Then yes I'll help you.

Samantha: Good. We'll get rid of her on Saturday. We'll make it look as if your cousin did it. Make it look as if he were in a jealous rage because he found out she was sleeping with Richard...yeah that sounds perfect. (lays head down on Robert's right shoulder and smiles)

(Robert shakes his head then puts it down)

Samantha: Could we go to your place? I want to lie down and finish planning.

Christopher: (walks on stage) What did you run away for?

Leona: Stay away from me, Chris.

Christopher: Come here, baby. You know you’re the only one for me. She was nothing. It was just one kiss.

Richard: I did not break in. I...I just climbed through the kitchen window.

Diana: And that's not breaking and entering?

Richard: It is only breaking and entering when it's someone you don't know and Samantha does not mind.

Diana: Oh, really? Well, I mind. And I would be in the right mind to call the police to have you arrested.

Richard: You would not do that to me, baby.

Richard: I know you did not mean that I know you love me.

Diana: (Disgust on her face) I hate you. You need-

Richard: (steps closer to Diana) There's a thin line between love and hate so you had to love me in order to hate me or you hate me because you love me.

I guess because (smiles)...because it was my best friend's name but I am not here to talk about me (smirks evil) I am here to talk about Samantha Ann Morgan. (pauses puts her head down) She is dead. She is dead because of me. (She looks up and starts conversing to the audience) She had nothing and I had everything. She was Mrs. Hi, what was your name again? And I was Mrs. Perfection.
