SNEAK PEEK

Stop by for a snippet of past works or current projects!  If you see it below I'm either trying to rework it or it's a new piece under construction.  So, take a read and leave a comment.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.  You know, for those 'writer's block' moments.

Title: Unnerving Stains

CYNTHIA

You’re not making sense.  (Grabs Desiree’s head with both hands, but in a loving, tender way.)  What’s going on in there?

 

DESIREE

I needed to make it stop.

 

CYNTHIA

The noise.  Right.  You’ve said that, but we really need to-/

 

DESIREE

People like that need to learn lessons.  How do you get better?  How do you learn if no one shows you better?

 

CYNTHIA

So you had to teach her a lesson…

 

DESIREE

You can’t keep being a bully.

 

CYNTHIA

You’re right…

 

DESIREE

(The tone is her voice changes the room.)  There must be consequences for your actions…

 

CYNTHIA

What did she do, Des?
