Young Woman Quickie

Scene: A young womanís bedroom. It is big, very well furnished. The young woman is well dressed and speaks with an upper class accent. She is sitting apparently talking to someone who is out of camera range. A door slams in the background.

Girl/young woman: (Sighs - whispered) THEYíVE GONE AT LAST. (Normal voice) NOW THEREíS JUST ME...AND YOU. THEY DONíT LIKE YOU. THEY DONíT LIKE YOU AT ALL, AT LEAST, DADDY DOESNíT. I KNOW MUMMY DOESNíT APPROVE OF YOU EITHER, BUT SHE DOES UNDERSTAND. AT LEAST I THINK SHE DOES. SHEíS YOUNGER THAN DADDY; SHEíS BEEN THROUGH THE SWINGING SIXTIES SCENE HERSELF. I DONíT CARE WHAT THEY THINK THOUGH, NOR WHAT MY FRIENDS SAY. THAT I SHOULDNíT GET INVOLVED WITH YOU. THAT YOU COST ME A LOT OF MONEY. THAT YOUíRE NOTHING BUT TROUBLE, A CHEAP THRILL. THAT A GIRL FROM MY BACKGROUND, WITH MY BREEDING, SHOULD KNOW BETTER. SOME EVEN SAY YOUíLL BE THE DEATH OF ME, (laughs slightly) THAT COULD BE TRUE, BUT I DONíT CARE. I COULDNíT GIVE YOU UP EVEN IF I WANTED TO; YOUíRE AN ADDICTION. IíLL HAVE TO PRETEND TO, THOUGH. WHEN DADDY ASKS ME IF IíVE, IíVE (hesitates) IíLL LOOK HIM STRAIGHT IN THE EYE AND SAY: NO DADDY, I HAVENíT.

IT WILL BE BAD ENOUGH IF DADDY FINDS OUT, BUT IF THE AUTHORITIES DO, THEYíLL SEND ME AWAY. PERHAPS FOR A VERY LONGTIME, BUT EVEN IF THEY DO, THEYíLL NEVER KEEP US APART FOREVER, THE TRUTH IS IíM HOOKED ON YOU: YOU TAKE MY BREATH AWAY.

(She sits forward. The camera draws back and we see she is holding a reefer. She places it in her mouth, takes out a lighter, lights it and smiles, drawing heavily on it. Fade out).
