I'm going to bump the thread
INT. PENTHOUSE BATHROOM - DAY
Vivian turns on the water in the tub. It fills the tub in a
You could hold a pep rally in
The phone on the marbled bathroom wall suddenly rings. Edward
reaches for it.
(into the phone)
INT. STUCKEY'S HOUSE - INTERCUT
Stuckey is walking around his desk.
Edward, it's me. Kross is all
set for tonight.
INT. PENTHOUSE BATHROOM - DAY
Vivian stares curiously at the bidet.
Listen, I gotta say this again,
I don't like you going alone.
She turns it on. The water hits her in the face.
(stifling a chuckle)
I'm a big boy.
There are lotions and shampoos and bubblebaths on the edge of
the tub. Vivian regards them like a kid in a candy shop.
Let me at least get you a date.
Keep it social.
Edward watches as Vivian smells some bubble bath. She smiles.
Her eyes ask Edward if it's okay to...? He nods.
Edward, did you hear me?
I know a lot of nice girls.
Vivian pours the bubblebath into the swirling water. There's
something about the look on her face... the way she bites her
lower lip... curious, sensual...
I have one.
Edward hangs up the phone as Vivian curiously turns on the
television. The sound blares. She fumbles to turn it down.
Edward reaches over and turns it off.
All right. How much for the week?
I'm in town until Saturday.
She look at him like he isn't speaking English.
It takes Vivian a moment to respond.
It'd cost you.
Of course. How much?
Five full nights... days too?
Edward nods. Vivian hesitates... it's got to be enough to
really change things... She shoots for the moon again.
Vivian, may I point out five more
nights at three hundred a night
is only 1,500.
But you want days too.
All right, two thousand.
And then, quickly getting herself back together, she flips on
the sexy smile.
Sugar, you got it. I will treat
you like a prince. Anything,
anyway you want.
I'm not just talking about sex.
Look butthead, I'll treat you so
nice you'll never want to let me
Three thousand for five days.
And Vivian, I will let you go.
INT. PENTHOUSE BEDROOM - MORNING
Edward comes out into the bedroom. Vivian quickly follows.
They move through the bedroom into the living room.
I'll be out most of the day.
He reaches into his pocket for a money clip. He peels off
bills. He hands the cash to Vivian.
I want you to go out and buy some
Vivian's eyes go wide at the amount of money.
Nothing too flashy, not too sexy.
INT. PENTHOUSE ENTRANCE WAY - DAY
They're at the front door.
Yeah, you want me to dress like
your high class girlfriend.
You're wasting your money though.
All I'm gonna do is hang around
the hotel. As a matter of fact,
I may never get out of that
Edward opens the door, he starts to exit. He turns back.
Think again. I'm taking you out
to an important dinner with me
The door closes in her face.
INT. OUTSIDE THE PENTHOUSE DOOR - DAY
What? Are you crazy?
Edward smiles to himself.
INT. PENTHOUSE BATHROOM - DAY
Vivian is stretched out in the hot bubble bath. The TV is on.
She clicks the remote control in her hand.
She lies back into the soapy water and disappears. She suddenly
pops back up, laughing.
A thought occurs to her. She reaches for the cordless phone.
She dials. She waits. She is about to disconnect when the
phone is answered.
Kit! Where've you been?
I was asleep. You woke me. You
Kit, listen, the guy last night,
the one in the Ferrari, I'm at
this hotel, the Regent Beverly
Wilshire, it's this absolutely
unbelievable place and he's hired
me for a whole week and Kit,
listen, he's paying me three
thousand bucks! We can get out
of the apartment. We can get out
of this town. We can do anything!
Kit? Hey, you there?
Why'd he want you?
That hurts. Perhaps because Vivian's been wondering the same
He... he just does.
I'm sorry, Viv'. Carlos has been
on my back.
Did you get the money up front
like I taught ya'?
Three hundred for last night and
he gave me extra to buy some
clothes. Now listen, I'm gonna
leave an envelope for you at the
Give me two hundred to the scum
bucket and the other hundred to
that asshole landlord for part
of the rent. Spend it on drugs
and I'll pull your hair out.
I'm getting dressed now. I'll
be over. Bye.
Hey Kit, where do I go for the
clothes? Good stuff on him.
In Beverly Hills?
Baby! Rodeo Drive.
INT. HOTEL LOBBY - DAY
Vivian comes out of the elevator and crosses the lobby. She
is back in her hooker clothes. She leaves an envelope at the
MR. THOMAS, the prim, middle-aged hotel manager, steps out from
his office. He stares in surprise and displeasure as he sees
Vivian exit out the front door. Vivian doesn't notice the odd
stares she gets from two well-dressed MIDDLE-AGED WOMEN who are just entering.
EXT. RODEO DRIVE - DAY
Vivian is looking wide-eyed and delighted and yes, more than
a bit overwhelmed. She passes store windows... and MORE STORE
WINDOWS... and still MORE STORE WINDOWS. Each display is more beautiful and expensive than the one before.
Vivian is also aware that she is getting odd looks. From
PASSERBY'S. Two beautiful dressed GIRLS her own age look at
her, turn away and giggle. The uniformed GUARDS that stand at
attention in front of many of the stores, stare at her suspiciously.
Feeling more and more uncomfortable, Vivian comes to a posh
woman's boutique. She hesitates for a moment. She enters.
INT. BOUTIQUE - DAY
Vivian is no sooner in the door than she is subject to the
disapproving stare of a SALESWOMAN standing behind the counter.
May I help you?
I'm just looking, thanks.
Vivian tiptoes through the shop as if it was filled with delicate glass objects. She cautiously examines a dress. The Saleswoman quickly comes around the counter and approaches her.
Are you looking for something in particular?
Yes. Something... conservative.
Vivian eyes the Saleswoman, puzzled at her tone. She examines
You have beautiful things.
How much is this?
I don't think it would fit you.
(beginning to get the
I didn't ask if it would fit.
I asked how much it was.
It's very expensive.
Vivian's body tenses as she stares at the Saleswoman.
What is with you?
I'm going to spend money.
I don't think we have anything
for you here. You're obviously
in the wrong place.
Vivian is speechless. She turns and stomps toward the door.
She stops and spins around staring at the Saleswoman. Vivian
flips her off. She throws the door open and storms outside.
The Saleswoman calmly strolls back to her counter and returns
to her place.
Most of us take life for granted. We know that one day we must die, but usually we picture that day as far in the future, when we are in buoyant health, death is all but unimaginable. We seldom think of it. wow gold
, The days stretch out in an endless vista. So we go about our petty task, hardly aware of our listless attitude towards life.
The same lethargy, I am afraid, characterizes the use of our faculties and senses. Only the deaf appreciate hearing, only the blind realize the manifold blessings that lie in sight url=http://www.wowgoldvip.fr]wow gold[/url]. Particularly does this observation apply to those who have lost sight and hearing in adult WOW Power leveling
life. But those who have never suffered impairment of sight or hearing seldom make the fullest use of these blessed faculties. Their eyes and ears take in all sights and sound hazily, without concentration, and with little appreciation. It is the same old story of not being grateful for what we conscious of health until we are ill.
I have often thought it would be a blessing if each human being were stricken blind and deaf for a few days at some wow gold
time during his early adult life. Darkness would make him more appreciative of sight; silence would teach him the joys of sound. WOW Power leveling
