Act 7 scene 1: Irene’s room

Irene: (sit on bed, pull legs up to chest, run fingers through hair, sigh, listen to IPod & read chemistry book)

Mitchel: (walk into Irene’s room and sit on her bed) get ready for school

Irene: I’m not going when a majority of the people there thinks I’m a slut (shake head & wrap arms around legs)

Mitchel: (stare at Irene and fold arms across chest)

Irene: Elena and Nolan are my only friends at school… I hate it here

Mitchel: you can’t run away from your problems forever (shake head & press lips together)

Irene: (nod and turn page of chemistry book)

Mitchel: sometimes luck is good and sometimes it’s not so good but it’s up to us to keep moving forward

Irene: that worked so well with patching things up with your marriage with mom (throw head back, raise an eye brow & stare at Mitchel)

Mitchel: (pull eye brows together)

Irene: I haven’t seen her since last week on Monday night when I was accused for about to have sex

Mitchel: your mother and I are just having disagreements so we’re working out living arrangements

Irene: (take out earphones, turn off IPod and stare at Mitchel)

Mitchel: you have to stop changing for the worst because you’re the source of our arguments

Irene: of course you’d blame me for you two fighting (nod, press lips together & cry)

Mitchel: (stand up and shake head)

Irene: mom will never be proud of me and in your eyes I’m just a screw up!

Mitchel: you are what you believe that you are (run fingers over hair, sigh & walk away)

Irene: (take out phone and call Clause) I need you… I have to see you… I need someone to talk to… (Sniffle)

Clause: (sigh)

Irene: please say something to me baby, I need you

Clause: when I needed you where you there…? That’s right no, you weren’t and I was all alone

Irene: (shake head, pull eye brows together & sniffle)

Clause: I needed you... you weren’t there…. Now I’m returning the favor

Irene: Clause, I’m sorry…

Clause: (hang up)

Act 7 scene2: at Irene’s job

Irene: (sit on the floor in front of Ramona & read script)

Ramona: (stare at Irene and smile)

Nolan: (lean on wall & put hands in pockets)

Irene: you and I can’t be

Ralph: you have stolen my heart Roxanne and I can’t be without you (stand behind Irene and hold script behind back)

Irene: (bow head)

Ralph: I have stolen diamonds and would steal a thousand more for you

Irene: you are no ordinary man and my love doesn’t come cheap (shake head & fold arms across chest)

Ralph: (tuck Irene’s hair behind her left ear)

Irene: go away if you can’t pay

Ralph: I have paid a high price with the money that doesn’t belong to me (lean in and kiss Irene’s left cheek then pull back)

Irene: (stare at Ralph & smirk)

Nolan: (stare at Irene)

Ralph: you are worth so much to me

Irene: I won’t give in to love… I’m not able to love anyone but myself (shake head and sigh)

Ralph: (stare at Irene & cup hand on left her cheek)

Irene: I can only love diamonds and myself for no man holds my heart

Ralph: I can only love you for you hold my heart in your hands and nothing else is of greater importance (smile and tilt head)

Irene: (raise an eye brow, hold breath & face Ralph)

Ralph: all the diamonds in the world wouldn’t even come close to your beauty

Irene: with me, flattery gets you everywhere and I might grow fond of you Christopher (shrug, stand up, put hands on hips and stare at Ralph)

Nolan: (press lips together)

Ralph: (stand up)

Irene: perhaps an… arrangement can be made

Ralph: (step closer to Irene & hold her hands)

[Police sirens]

Ralph: (glance at Irene and run backstage)

Irene: (glance at Ralph and run backstage)

Ramona: (clap) perfect, I felt the emotions from my script come alive… well done to both of you

Ralph: (let go of Irene’s hand & smile)

Elena: (walk up to Ramona) I think that Irene plays the character of Roxanne perfectly and Ralph is just amazing acting out the part of Christopher, what a great choice of people to play the lead roles in the upcoming play (smile)

Nolan: (walk up to Irene and hold her right hand)

Act 7 scene 3: Nolan’s car

Irene: (unbuckle seat belt, sigh & run fingers through hair)

Elena: (sit in back seat and listen to IPod)

Nolan: (turn off car & take off seat belt) you never told me you’re an actress or that you’re going to be in my mom’s play

Irene: considering you say that you don’t care about me I didn’t think you would come see the ply or much less care that I am going to be in it (face Nolan)

Nolan: (stare at Irene and pull eye brows together)

Irene: plus an athlete werewolf must be busy from day to day

Nolan: well, I can no longer say that I don’t care about you (face Irene, press lips together & sigh)

Irene: (raise an eye brow, tilt head and smirk)

Nolan: and you of course have feelings for me beyond those of friendship

Irene: can I ask you a hypothetical question? (sit crisscross apple sauce, run fingers through hair & lean forward)

Nolan: (raise an eye brow)

Irene: a girl got in an argument with her dad and doesn’t want to go home, should she stay the night at her lover’s house tonight?

Nolan: if you want to stay in a house with a pack of wolves, go ahead (nod)

Irene: (bite lip, gulp, get out of car and notice Darcy in the bushes)

Darcy: (stare at Irene)

Irene: (walk up to Darcy)

Darcy: my brother Ralph said you are a wonderful actress and so am I (step forward, hold sharp knife behind back & smile evilly)

Irene: (stare at Darcy)

Darcy: the two of you together is magical, I saw the sparks fly

Irene: there’s no sparks flying anywhere because my heart beats for someone else (shake head and slightly smile)

Nolan: (get out of car & glare at Darcy)

Darcy: (lick lips)

Irene: … the son of the play writer, Ramona

Darcy: (stab Irene in the left rib)

Irene: (fall to knees and gasp)

Clause: (hide, pull out gun & shoot Darcy in the heart with silver bullet)

Elena: (get out of car, run to Irene, remove the knife, throw it on the ground, and scoop her up in arms)

Clause: damn werewolf human hunters (leave)

Darcy: (fall to the ground, gasp & die)

Nolan: (follow clause)

Irene: (throw head back and close eyes)

Elena: (leave)

Act 7 scene 4: In Irene’s dream

Irene: (lean on the wall outside Publix, hold breath & watch the rain)

Nolan: (stand on Irene’s left side)

Clause: (stand on Irene’s right side)

Irene: love is contagious

Clause: love is more than a feeling spread from one person to another and it’s more than those three words (stare at Irene and smile)

Nolan: (put hands in pockets)

Clause: it’s knowing a person better than yourself

Nolan: love is an overused word though the feeling is actually lust or infatuation (stare at Irene & run hand over hair)

Clause: (raise an eye brow)

Nolan: if I did believe in the word I’d say I love you Irene

Irene: I love you Nolan and I love you Clause, with all my heart (tuck hair behind ear)

Nolan: (kiss Irene’s cheek)

Clause: (kiss Irene’s cheek)

Irene: you both are an important part of my life

Clause: you are too amazing for words to describe and I love that about you

Irene: (glance at Clause and smile)

Nolan: (hold Irene’s hand)

Clause: you melt my heart into an ocean of love

Nolan: you belong with me, as the leader of a werewolf pack I can protect you better than that vampire can even dream of

Irene: (glance at Nolan & smile)

Clause: (hold Irene’s hand)

Nolan: so, choose me

Clause: you belong with me; I will never hide my feelings or anything else from you which is what that werewolf fails to do

Irene: (pull eye brows together)

Clause: I will always be honest, so choose me

Irene: if you love me you won’t ask me to choose when both of you know I can’t (shake head and cry)

Nolan: (let go of Irene’s hand, run fingers over hair & sigh)

Irene: please, don’t make me choose

Nolan: you can’t ask me not to, if you won’t then I’m leaving until you’re not so confused who you want to be with (walk away)

Clause: (let go of Irene’s hand) though Nolan is my enemy he has a point, before you commit to a relationship you have to sure of who you want to be with

Irene: (face Clause)

Clause: I’m not able to be with you when you don’t know if you want to be with me (walk away)

Irene: (cry, run into the rain & wake up) please, don’t make me choose…
