Love: Unscripted

by Ashes of a Black Rose aka Night Child   May 19, 2009


Not much to think about at all before I met you,
Eat. Sleep. Drink. Drink alcohol. Sleep.
Wake up. Go out. Party. Pass out. Wake up.
Eat. Sleep. Drink. Sleep. Repeat.
Didn't take much thought.
Then,
(Enter: Nessa, Stage Right.)
Dates. Introductions. Dinner.
Trevor. Didn't care.
Mido. Didn't care.
Andrew. Didn't care.
Cody. Didn't care.
Josh. Hold everything. What's this?
(Aside: Emotion? Desire? Lust? Love?)
Lots of things to ponder.
Dated more. Routine change.
Wake up. Go out. Smile. Sleep.
Dream. Think. Wonder. Wake up.
Smile. Smile. Smile.
Dinner? Yes.
Movies? Yes.
Lunch? Yes.
Golf? Yes.
Sex? Wait... no?
(Aside: No pressure. No pushing. No asking. No expecting.)
Smiled more. Wondered more.
Worried some. Pondered some.
Routine change.
Wake up. Go out. Make out. Pass out. Wake up.
Daydream. Think. Imagine. Realize.
Fall in love. Say nothing.
Smiles. Want more.
Kisses. Want more.
Touches. Want more.
"Like you." Want more.
"Love you." Wait what?
CUT!
(Review script: 4-word reply to 3-words unsaid.)
But written. Read. Revealed.
Love, unscripted.
Run? Or wait?
Stay? Or bail?
Routine change.
Stay. Embrace. Kiss. Sleep. Wake up.
Go out. Make out. Stay out. Drink. Think.
Love in silence. Confess.
(Exit: Uncertainty, Stage Left.)
say it? Yes.
Mean it? Yes.
Feel it? Yes.
Do It? Stop. Hold everything. Thought Process:
Feels right. Is right. Wanted him since the first night.
So in love. Why'd I wait? Now it's time.
Ready. Set. Sex.
(Enter: Ecstasy, From Above.)
I've changed so much about myself since I met you.
I think about the way I used to be...
Eat. Sleep. Drink. Drink alcohol. Sleep.
Wake up. Go out. Party. Pass out. Wake up.
Eat. Sleep. Drink. Sleep. Repeat.
Didn't take much thought till you.
(Enter: Josh, Stage Right.)
Never, ever leave.
