Act 5 scene 1: Todd’s office

Irene: (sit in chair in front of Todd’s desk, cross legs & run fingers through hair)

Todd: (lean back in chair and take a sip of coffee) of what age are you because there is an age limit for actors and actresses looking to work here?

Irene:  I’m sixteen and attend Vexon high as a sophomore (glance at apple on Todd’s desk)

Todd: (stare at Irene & press lips together)

Irene: I’m an aspiring actress; I’ve been acting in school plays for a while

Todd:  since you have experience, tell me what your goal is by asking for a spot in the cast of my plays (raise an eye brow)

Irene: (stare at Todd and tilt head)

Todd: why should I let you work for me when you just moved here six days ago?

Irene: I have a three point seven GPA and acting isn’t only my passion, it’s my life (lean forward & tuck hair behind ear)

Todd: (take a sip of coffee)

Irene: I was never what my mother wanted me to be but I’m not an actress for her, I’m an actress for me

Todd: you’re smart and passionate about the preforming arts (scratch chin, lean forward and sigh)

Irene: (press lips together)

Todd: well, the play writer will be here bright and early tomorrow morning to hand you your script

Irene: I got the job and will be in the play!?! (Smile, lean back in seat, blink slowly & run fingers through hair)

Todd: (nod)

Irene: ok, I’ll be here in your office at seven thirty tomorrow morning

Todd: actually seven o’ clock, waking up early is an important part of being an actress (stand up)

Irene:  (nod, stand up and keep smiling)

Todd: be here at seven or I might change my mind

Irene: I won’t be so much as a minuet late (grab Todd’s left hand & shake it)

Todd: (nod)

Irene: (leave downtown theatre and meet Elena outside)

Elena: (lean against wall & eat apple)

Irene: I got the job!

Act 5 scene 2: on the way to Nolan’s swim meet

Irene: (pull hair into ponytail & press lips together)

Elena: (wait for traffic light to change to green)

Collin: (sit in back seat, listen to IPod and tap lightly on the window)

Irene: I’m going to be a real actress (smile)

Elena: I’m happy for you but are you sure you can keep up your GPA, work as an actress after school for five hours and date Nolan?

Irene: (frown & stare at Elena)

Elena:  you both are busy and making time sounds like a lot of work

Irene: Nolan and I will find a way to be together (nod and press lips together)

Elena: (glance at Irene, notice the light turn green & drive forward)

Irene: he and I belong together so we’re going to be

Elena: you and Clause also belong together but it doesn’t mean you’re going to be

Irene: (stare out window and sigh)

Collin: (throw head back, run fingers over hair & close eyes)

Elena: look, I’m just saying that you two aren’t going to have the time for each other

Irene: I’m afraid of Clause in a different way that I’m afraid of Nolan, that’s why I left (lean head against the window)

Elena: (sigh)

Collin: (run fingers over hair and sing along with music from IPod)

Irene: Clause isn’t the only victim

Elena: fear is only in the mind when we convince ourselves to run away from something (shake head)

Irene:  (raise an eye brow)

Elena: take your brother for example, Collin wants to be a werewolf and if he were I’d stay with him

Irene: it’s easier said than done to stand beside a killer and stay there

Collin: (sing off key & louder with the music from IPod)

Irene: I did what I though is the right thing

Elena: the right thing now comes down to choosing Nolan over Clause when there are hunters after both?

Irene: (close eyes and take a deep breath)

Elena: sounds like Clause is suffering the most

Irene: I care about Clause so much it hurts but I’m not sure that’s enough now

Elena: (pull into the parking lot, find a parking space, & turn off car)

Irene: (take off seat belt) for now let’s just support Nolan (open door, get out of car and close door)

Collin: (open eyes, take off seat belt & get out of car)

Elena: (take off seat belt, get out of car, lock it and hold Collin’s hand)

[Elena, Collin and Irene walk into school]

Act 5 scene 3: Todd’s office

Irene: (sit in front of Todd’s desk & eat a apple)

Todd: (take a sip of coffee, stare at Irene and flash a smile) Ramona might be late because had to unexpectedly drop her son off at his dad’s house

Irene: since we’re here why don’t you tell me what led you to become a director?

Todd: (raise an eye brow)

Irene: and do you have a family of your own, as in a wife and kids?

Todd: my two daughters Elena and Bethany are my inspiration for being here (sigh)

Irene: (run fingers through hair)

Todd: it’s what my wife Darleen would’ve wanted so I’m pleasing her though she’s no longer here

Irene: I’m sorry to hear that, I bet Darleen was a wonderful woman (stare at Todd)

Todd: (nod sadly and press lips together)

Irene: and I know Elena, she’s my friend but she never told me her mom died

Ramona: (open door & walk in) sorry I’m late, Nolan told me at the last minute to bring him to his dad’s house, teenage boys can be a pain in the butt at times

Todd: Ramona this is Irene the newest addition to the cast (stand up and politely point to Irene)

Ramona: (face Irene, smile & hold out hand)

Todd: and Irene this is Ramona the play writer who will help you with your lines (politely point to Ramona)

Ramona: we have two weeks to get the lines right which means rehearsal after school from four to nine

Irene: (stand up and shake Ramona’s hand)

Ramona: you will be meeting the cast come Monday

Irene: what’s the name of the play and what is it about, love… or something else? (Smile)

Ramona: (raise an eye brow)

Irene: what’s the storyline of the play, I’m curious

Ramona: the name of the play is “love bought with diamonds” and it’s a dramatic love story (sit down)

Todd: (sit down)

Irene: (sit down)

Ramona: it takes place in France when a mastermind criminal falls in love with a famous belly dancer

Act 5 scene 4: the beach

Irene: (smile & run fingers through hair)

Nolan: (walk up to Irene, press lips together and throw shirt in the sand) why are m here because if it’s to make Clause jealous I’d rather not be used

Irene: you’re here because I want you to be

Nolan: (step closer & tilt head)

Elena: (stare at Collin)

Collin: (stare at Elena)

Irene: I really like you and I want to be with you

Nolan: I couldn’t care less whether or not you like me (stare at Irene and put right hand on her shoulder)

Irene: (hold breath)

Nolan: truth be told I don’t like you… you’re just my lab partner

Irene: if that’s true that why did you come here to meet me? (Fold arms across chest)

Nolan: (shrug, step back & shake head)

Irene: I know you have feelings for me so why don’t you just admit it?

Collin: (face Nolan) hey Nolan, let’s get drinks

Irene: (grab Elena’s wrist, lead her to the hot dog stand, and buy two hot dogs)

Elena: (buy two sodas)

[Collin and Nolan push way to drink stand]

Irene: Nolan has to like me right? I mean I’m a likeable person (eat hot dog)

 Elena: (take a sip of soda)

Irene: I like him and the feelings are getting stronger

Elena: I think you’re the love interest of both Clause and Nolan (eat hot dog & look for a place to sit)

Irene: (follow Elena)

Elena: I’m not at all jealous because I’m already falling for Collin

Irene: I don’t want to make the tough decision of choosing between them (shake head and eat hot dog)

Elena: (sit on empty beach chair & kick feet up)

Irene: breaking up with Clause is hard enough for me

Elena: Nolan isn’t a sensitive type of guy like Clause so he won’t tell you he loves you first until he trusts you (put soda in cup holder)

Irene: (eat hot dog)

Elena: there’s a reason for him not clearly expressing his feelings

Irene: (take sip of soda & put drink in cup holder of chair next to Elena’s)

Elena: (finish soda)

Nolan: (walk up to Irene)

Irene: (finish hot dog)

Nolan: you insist that I have feelings for you when I don’t (put hands on Irene’s hips, pull her closer and kiss her)

Irene: (put hands on Nolan’s shoulders)

[They make out]

~3 minutes later~

Nolan: (pull back) …I felt nothing… (Walk away)
