Scene 17

Post by CLP » Tue Jul 19, 2011 10:38 pm

Interior. Day.

John is at his desk, working. There is the general clamor of an office, talking and phones ringing. Enter Jerry stage right carrying a cup of coffee.

Jerry: “How’s it going?”

John: “Pretty good. You?”

Jerry: “Can’t complain.”

Jerry exits stage left. John’s fake smile fades and he begrudgingly continues working. He is sick and tired of his mundane life. He secretly wishes to quit his job. He dreads going home to chores, taking out the trash and mowing the lawn. He wishes he had some control over his own life. But he’s not the writer.

I am.

Scene: Drabblecast Forum HQ
At His desk: CLP
What's that noise?
CLP's personal assistant, John, looks out the window.
It's an imaginary mob carrying pitchforks and lanterns!
Wait, they're carrying signs:
"Free John, you bastard!"

I can't free John. He's literally nothing without me.
