Engaged to Life
I’m not ready: Since he and Anelle have been together, Russell has been a little intimidated by her sexual experience and is hesitant to have sex with her due to his lack of experience. Meanwhile Carlen and Cassie decide to go to a mall which recently opened but they have trouble getting there.
SCENE: The Living Room
(Russell is sitting on the couch watching TV when Anelle joins him.)
Anelle: (She kisses him on the cheek.)
Anelle: Whatcha watching?
Russell: How it’s made, this episode is on how hot sauce is made.
Anelle: Hot sauce?
Russell: Yeah I know, but it’s pretty interesting.
Anelle: Well I have a better idea, how about you come with me upstairs and we can find out how babies are made.
(She says while touching him.)
Russell: Are you, are you sure about that, I’m not qualified for parenthood.
Anelle: Of course we’ll use protection.
Russell: But there might still be a possibility that my sperm could penetrate the condom and impregnate you, parenthood.
(He quickly walks into the kitchen.)
Anelle: What? Well that was a total fail, college guys were never this hard.
SCENE: The Kitchen
(Daniel is sitting at the kitchen table when Russell in.)
Russell: I can’t do this.
Daniel: Can’t do what?
Russell: (He sits at the table and begins to explain himself.)
Okay, Anne is ready to take the next step in our relationship.
Daniel: Next step? Can you be more specific?
Russell: You know what I mean by the next step.
Daniel: No I don’t.
Russell: She wants the sex.
Daniel: Oh, congrats man, you’re so in there.
Russell: Yeah, so in there.
(He says hesitantly.)
Daniel: So what’s the problem?
Russell: Anne is so sexually experienced.
Daniel: Okay, you are too.
Russell: (He stares at Daniel.)
Daniel: No, no, you haven’t? Ever? Wait, but what about Angela? That dare you had with her?
Russell: It never happened; I didn’t want to do it.
Daniel: Well it sure sounded like it happened.
Russell: We faked the whole thing; I was just banging my hand on the wall and screaming yeah, so was she.
Daniel: Why didn’t you do it?
Russell: I’d always believed that I would do it with someone that I truly loved.
Daniel: Do you love her, Anne?
Daniel: Then you shouldn’t be intimidated or scared.
Russell: Yeah but I am.
Daniel: Then just tell her, she’ll understand.
Russell: Are you out of your mind, I’m supposed to be a man here. You are no help.
(He walks back into the living room.)
Daniel: Well that was a total fail.
SCENE: Anelle’s Room
(Anelle is lying on her bed listening to music on her iPod with an upset look on her face.)
Carlen: (She knocks on Anelle’s door.)
Can I come in?
Carlen: (She walks into Anelle’s room.)
Carlen: I’m headed to that new mall that was opened on Glence Avenue, and I was just wondering if wanted to come along.
Anelle: I don’t think so, but thanks for asking. You should ask Cassie I’m pretty sure that she would want to go.
Carlen: What’s with the long face, are you okay?
Anelle: I don’t know its silly; I shouldn’t bother you with it.
Carlen: Come on, tell me.
Anelle: Alright. I wanted to take the next step in me and Russell’s relationship, but when I tried to get him to come upstairs with me, he hesitated and left the room.
Carlen: Wait, you know that there’s something wrong with that sentence, right?
Carlen: When you tried to get him to come upstairs with you.
Anelle: Yeah, so.
Carlen: Anne, it seems like you were trying to force it on him.
Anelle: No, it doesn’t.
Carlen: Yeah, you have to know that he’s comfortable with it first, he probably just needs time.
Anelle: Did you give Dan time?
Carlen: Oh he didn’t time, neither did I, because we were both ready. What I’m trying to say is that you shouldn’t push it, let it happen naturally.
Anelle: Yeah you’re probably right, thanks.
Carlen: You’re welcome, well I better get going.
Anelle: See ya.
(Carlen leaves Anelle’s room and goes downstairs.)
SCENE: The Living Room
(Carlen walks into the living room where she finds Cassie.)
Carlen: Hey I was looking for you.
Cassie: Found me.
Carlen: I was wondering if you wanted to go to that new mall that was just all Glence Avenue.
Cassie: Yeah, I guess, I’m not really doing anything right now.
Carlen: Alright, let’s go.
(Carlen and Cassie leave the house.)
SCENE: The Kitchen
(Anelle walks downstairs into the kitchen where she sees Russell at the counter.)
(She says as she grabs a bag of chips from the cabinet and a bottle of water from the refrigerator.)
Anelle: Umm, I just wanted you to know that we don’t have to rush anything, and I apologize if I made you feel uncomfortable earlier.
Russell: You didn’t make me uncomfortable, I was just surprised, that’s all.
Anelle: Well if you’re not ready to you know be, intimate or whatever, I can give you time.
Russell: Not ready, give me time?
Anelle: I’m just saying we don’t have to get right into it, we can just take it slow.
Russell: You’re acting like I’m some teenage boy who’s never had sex before.
(He says raising his voice.)
Anelle: And you’re acting like a jerk.
Russell: How am I acting like a jerk?
Anelle: The way you’re raising you’re voice at me. You know what I shouldn’t have even come down here.
(She goes upstairs.)
Russell: Anne, I’m so, I’m sorry.
SCENE: In Carlen’s Car
Cassie: (She’s sitting in the driver’s seat.)
Are you sure we’re going the right direction?
Carlen: Yeah, I think. Why do you ask?
(She says while driving.)
Cassie: Cause it doesn’t look like we’re driving near Glence Avenue and because I haven’t seen this part of Floyd County before? Do you even know where we’re going?
Carlen: Maybe, maybe not.
Cassie: So we’re lost.
Carlen: We’re not lost, I hope.
Carlen: Alright fine, I’ll just park the car at the side of the street and you go out and ask someone, who doesn’t look like a druggy for directions.
(Carlen parks the car and Cassie gets out.)
(Carlen’s phones rings so she answers it.)
Daniel: Hey Car
Carlen: Dan, Honey.
Daniel: You and Cassie have been out for a while, where are you?
Carlen: I don’t know, I think we’re lost.
Daniel: You’re lost?
Carlen: Yeah, but its okay, I sent Cassie out to ask for directions.
Daniel: Alright then, before careful, bye love you.
Carlen: I love you too, bye.
(She hangs up.)
(Carlen looks through the window to check where Cassie is but doesn’t see her.)
Carlen: Cassie, where the hell are you?
(She gets out of her car, crosses the street, looking for Cassie.)
(She finds Cassie in front of a bar making out with some guy, so she runs over to her and pulls her away from him.)
Cassie: Hey, what was that for?
Carlen: I told you to ask for directions, not to make out with some stranger.
Cassie: He’s not a stranger, his name is Tony.
Tony: Hey I’m Tony.
Carlen: Get the hell out of here, before I kick your ass.
Tony: Alright, I’m going, later Cassie.
(He walks away.)
Cassie: Bye Tony.
Carlen: What’s wrong with you?
Cassie: Hold on I got the directions, from Tony.
Carlen: Fine, whatever let’s just go.
(Carlen and Cassie walk back to the car.)
SCENE: Anelle’s Room (In the Evening.)
(Anelle is on her laptop when Russell knocks on the door.)
Anelle: Who is it?
Russell: It’s me, can I come in, please.
Russell: (He comes into the room.)
Can we talk about what happened?
Anelle: Are you gonna start raising your voice again?
Russell: No, and you were right I was being a jerk.
(Russell and Anelle sit on the bed together.)
Anelle: Is there something wrong, something you’re not telling me.
Russell: There is some thing that I haven’t told you, and I didn’t want to tell you earlier, but you deserve an explanation.
Anelle: What is it?
Russell: The reason why I was so hesitant to have sex with you wasn’t because I wasn’t ready to or because I want to take things slow, it’s because I haven’t had sex before, and I figured that if I did have sex with you I would suck at it.
Anelle: What? Are you serious?
Russell: Yes I’m serious.
Anelle: Suck at it? Russ, sex isn’t a competition to see who’s the best or the worst, it’s a moment you share with someone who you, who you.
Russell: Love, I fell in love with you that day you opened yourself up to me in Virginia, which was the very first time that I actually felt connected to you.
(He strokes her hair.)
Anelle: You really mean that, you love me.
Russell: I really mean it.
Anelle: I love you too.
(She kisses him.)
(And you know what happens after this I don’t really need to tell you or go into the details, common sense girl.)
SCENE: Living Room
(Daniel is sitting on the couch when Cassie and Carlen walk into the house from the door.)
Daniel: Oh hey, you’re back. How was it, what happened?
Carlen: I don’t want to talk about it.
Cassie: I don’t want to talk about it, either.
(She goes into the kitchen.)
Carlen: I’m tired, I just wanna go to bed, carry me?
(He carries her upstairs.)
