Act 8 scene 1: Clause’s classroom

Clause: (lean back in chair, press lips together & fold arms behind head)

Collin: (finish trigonometry homework)

Elena: (stare at Clause and lean over his desk) Irene stayed home today, she’s still in pain

Collin: Irene has gauze wrapped around her ribs and needs help getting up (sigh)

Clause: (scratch chin & raise an eye brow)

Collin: she is getting better and the wound looks better too

Elena: the hole through her skin that covers her ribs is closing up (pull eye brows together and bow head)

Clause: (lean forward)

Elena: I need her to get well soon because seeing her like that kills me

Clause: with some venom on the wound she’ll be able to heal at a quicker pace

Collin: (look up & stare at Clause)

Elena: (gasp quietly)

Clause: Irene needs to get better so I know my world will be alright

Collin: I won’t let you turn my sister into one of you (shake head & clench teeth)

Clause: (stand up)

Elena: (grab Clause’s wrists)

Collin: she is never going to be bitten by another vampire again

Clause: if you’re paying attention to anything that I said, I’m not going to turn her into a vampire unless she wanted me too, it’s her choice if she wants to live forever… I won’t force her

Elena: (stand in front of Clause)

Clause: the venom will heal her faster than medicine

Collin: Irene can heal without a bite from a filthy bloodsucker (narrow eyes at Clause and tilt head)

 [Zoe walks in]

Zoe: (gasp and fall to knees)

Clause: (run over to Zoe and kneel beside her)

Collin: who the hell is she?

Zoe: Blair will set one family member free for each human hunter that’s killed (throaty cough)

Clause: (stare at Zoe)

Irene: (walk up to Clause & sit beside him)

Zoe: time is running out for Irene because the hunters won’t stop until she’s dead

Act 8 scene 2: Clause’s house

Zoe: (Lie on couch & rest back on pillow)

Clause: (press lips together, fold arms across chest, pace and sigh) Collin won’t let me help Irene recover sooner, if hunters come to her house

Zoe: she and everyone inside will be killed, but that doesn’t have to happen (throaty couch & shake head)

Clause: (flinch and run hand over hair)

Zoe: we can save her from dying at the young age of sixteen

Clause: you aren’t in the condition to fight hunters, you have some type of sickness (sit next to Zoe & hold her hands)

Zoe: (stare at Clause and smile weakly)

Clause: you’re losing a lot of weight, growing paler, coughing up blood and you feel cold to me… it’s not normal when a vampire feels cold to another

Zoe: that’s impossible, vampires don’t have sickness (shake head & press lips together)

Clause: (bow head and sigh)

Stranger: (hide & point dart gun at Zoe)

Zoe: I am fine, you just worry about Irene

Clause: you are part of the only family I have now; I want to protect you (life head, stare at Zoe and press lips together)

Zoe: (throaty cough & sit up)

Clause: I could lose everything in a heartbeat

Stranger: (point dart gun at Clause’s heart)

Zoe: (grab Clause’s gun and shoot silver bullet at stranger)

Stranger: (fall to ground, gasp & die)

Zoe: a werewolf in your house isn’t a good sign (shake head and pull eye brows together)

Clause: (stand up, scratch chin & grunt)

Zoe: anyway, you should probably stay somewhere else for a while

Clause: I can’t leave Irene not knowing if I’ll ever see her again (grunt and throw head back)

Zoe: (shake head)

Clause: she’s the love of my life and my strongest weakness, without her I’m nothing

Zoe: I know how it feels to love someone so much that you would do anything for them and they only give you half of their heart (pull eye brows together)

Clause: (run fingers over hair)

Zoe: Vladimir put me through it, but you have to protect your life so you will be able to protect hers

Clause: I value Irene’s life more than mine; her human days will decrease when it’s time to, not when I can’t protect her (fold arms across chest)

[Knock at the front door]

Zoe: (glance at Clause)

Clause: (glance at Zoe and open the door)

Police officer: are you Clause Jonathon Andrews?

Clause: (nod) yes, that’s me

Zoe: (stand next to Clause & stare at officer)

Police officer: I just need you to come down to the police station so I can ask you about one of your students

Act 8 scene 3: in Clause’s car in front of Irene’s house

Zoe: (sit in the back seat, lean back & sigh)

Clause: (sit in the driver’s seat, press lips together and lean forward) I don’t see Irene yet, she might be with Nolan

Zoe: on Thursday morning? That is highly unlikely (shake head & pull eye brows together)

Clause: (clench steering wheel and stare at lady walking by)

Zoe: let her wake up and get ready for school

Collin: (walk out of house, pull hood over head & put hands in pockets)

Zoe: (stare at Collin and frown)

Clause: (get out of car & walk up to Collin)

Collin: (stare at Clause) what the hell are you here for bloodsucker?

Clause: I need to talk to Irene about something Important (fold arms across chest)

Collin: I’m only going to say this once so listen up, stay the heck away from my sister (step forward and clench fists)

Zoe: (get out of car & stand next to Clause)

Collin: she’s with Nolan now so just leave her alone

Clause: there is a part of Irene that loves me

Elena: (walk up to Collin)

Irene: (walk out of house, close door, turn around and lock the door)

Clause: I know she’s pushing me away out of fear

Collin: Irene isn’t a toy you can mess with whenever you feel like it, heck she’s not even a toy at all

Elena: (wrap arms around Collin)

Irene: (turn around & stare at Clause)

Collin: my sister is off limits so fuck off!

Zoe: why are you so pissed off at Clause when he did nothing to you? (Fold arms across chest)

Clause: (stare at Irene and scratch chin)

Zoe: he’s innocent in that sense, so what do you have against him?

Collin: a vampire teacher is dangerous considering he can kill my human sister at any given time (glare at Zoe)

Elena: (put chin on Collin’s shoulder & sigh)

Collin: Nolan is safer for her than a bloodthirsty human

Zoe: Nolan is an athletic werewolf who eats human flesh and somehow he’s the safer choice? (snort and roll eyes)

Clause: (walk up to Irene & hug her tightly)

Zoe: vampires drink blood and werewolves eat human skin to keep from aging

Act 8 scene 4: in the principal’s office

Clause: (sits in front of boss’s desk & glance around room)

Principal: (lean back in chair and stare at Clause)

Mitchel: (sit on Clause’s left side)

Carmen: (sit on Clause’s right side)

Principal: on behalf of a student I have called you into my office to conference (nod & press lips together)

Clause: (hold breath and gulp)

Principal: I have received an anonymous tip that your daughter is romantically involved with Mr. Andrews her creative writing teacher

Carmen: ten days ago Irene did mention meeting a boy named Clause (tap chin with index finger)

Mitchel: (glance at Clause)

Clause: (stare at principal)

Carmen: she also said they’re dating

Principal: Irene is a minor and Clause Andrews – her creative writing teacher first period – is twenty-six, this is a serious matter and I need the truth (lean forward)

Carmen: (glance at Clause)

Principal: having relations with a student will permanently terminate your teaching job

Mitchel: (run fingers over hair) if all of this turns out to be true, I’m going to press charges

Carmen: I support you pressing charges because any relationship between a teacher and student besides strictly professional is illegal (nod)

Mitchel: (hold Carmen’s hand behind Clause’s chair)

Carmen: I will not stand for a pedophile criminal dating my daughter

Principal: Clause Andrews you have one chance to either confirm or deny the claims about you and Irene, we don’t act without evidence

Clause: besides the accusation formed by one person, you have no evidence against me (sigh with relief)

Principal: (raise an eye brow)

Clause: without proof it’s just a rumor spread around school

School deputy: (walk into the room) Rosa Blackwood, I came here as soon as I dropped my wife off at her yoga class

Clause: (glance over shoulder at Ryan the school deputy)

School deputy: you said I’d have to make an arrest today so here I am

Mitchel: (lean back in seat and nod slowly)

Carmen: (face Ryan & stare familiarly at him)

Clause: (blink slowly)

Principal: (reach into desk draw) the evidence of an inappropriate teacher-student relationship is here

School deputy: (step closer)

Principal: (take out picture of Clause and Irene kissing at his house and put it on desk) will you confess now?
