Heal My Heart Christmas

Act One Scene One  


William


Barb Williamson! My office now!


Barb


S-sir? Is everything alright?


Williamson


No, everything is not alright! These numbers are all screwed up.  Are you blind or just stupid?  


Barb


I'm sorry, sir. I can go over them if you'd like.  


William


Don't bother. You're fired!


Barb


But, Sir! It's Christmas Eve!  


William  


I'm well aware of what day it is, Miss Williamson.  Now please exit the premises.  


Barb


You cannot fire me without just cause.


William


Alright, you want a cause? I'll give you three! 1: You're stupid! 2:  You're obnoxious!  3:  It's also come to my attention how you've been so rudely speaking to my assistant and I will not put up with that! Now exit the building, please.  


Barb runs outside


Tree


Psst...  I can help you.


Barb


Who said that?


Tree


I did


Barb


A tree? Yeah, you're losing it, Barb  


Tree


Come with me and I will show you the answers you seek about William.


Tree


Do you see that snow globe at the end of my branch? Grab it and you'll find your answers.  


Int. Snow globe


William


Christmas! Please don't do this. Don't leave like this. I'll change!  


Christmas


I can't listen to that anymore, William!  


I've heard it all before  


You say you'll change


But it never lasts


And we can't go back to our past


Go on and enjoy your future without me


However, that may be  


I've heard it all before


The one line I used to adore  


You'll say you change


But it'll never last


We can't go back to our past


Goodbye, William. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and wonderful life!  


Barb


Poor William



Tree


Did you just say poor William?


Barb


He is human. Is he not?


Tree


That may be so, but he fired you on Christmas Eve and you feel sorry for him?  


Barb


Not sorry. Bad for him.


Tree


What's the difference?


Barb


There is a difference.  


Tree


Let's make a deal. If you find Christmas Snow, I'll try my very best to get through to William.   


Act One Scene Two  


Barb


What kind of a name is Christmas Snow anyway?  (Sighs) The miserable old man doesn't deserve her, but if it gets me my job back, then I'm willing to do what I can.   


Barb finds her and clicks on photos  


Barb


I don't see any wedding photos and I see an email address.


Barb paces back and forth


Barb


What if I contact her and she thinks I'm nuts, or what if I contact and she's the nut?  Oh my God. The things we do to keep our jobs.  Mom would ask me why I don't just get another job, but good jobs are hard to come by these days. Okay... Here goes nothing...  


Christmas opens the email  


Christmas


What? My William? That-that can't be. All these years I just assumed he passed away...  Should I contact her back?  No.  What if she's crazy?  


Tree


It doesn't hurt  to try..  (Whispers)  


Christmas


Who-who said that?


Christmas opens her window


The tree grabs her and pulls her outside


Christmas


Where- where are you taking me?


Tree


I have much to show you.


Christmas


What could you possibly have to show me?


Tree


Not what.. Who...  William...  


Christmas


William?  Do you want to show me, William?  


Tree


Come (Points branch to a window)  


Christmas


Does he ever go home?


Tree


Oh, he does. He goes home at two am and comes right back here at 5 am.   


Christmas


Doesn't leave a lot of room for sleep, does it? He always did prioritize work over family, though.  


Tree


Exactly.  And it's your turn to help him prioritize something else.


Christmas


Oh no. I've been down that road once before.


Tree


Perhaps you gave up on him too easily? Do I daresay you have regrets about leaving him behind six years ago?


Christmas


Alright, maybe I do. But it's not my place to help-  


Tree


You still love him.  


Christmas


No...  


Tree


You may be able to lie to your friends and family, but you cannot lie to me or your heart, Christmas Snow!  


The clock strikes 2 am  


William


What a day. I can't believe I had to fire that idiot today.  Hopefully, she won't be bothering me or my staff anymore.  


Tree


William?


William


Whoever you are, go away! I need my sleep.  


Tree


You must come with me first!


Act One  Scene Three


William  


Christmas! But Tree, why is she here.   


Tree


She's here for you, William.  


William


Do you take delight in teasing me?


Tree


Oh, but I am not teasing you,  


William  


Tell me, Tree. What is the meaning of this?  


Tree


You have to figure out the meaning for yourself, I can, however, tell you that you should be thanking Barb Williamson.  


William


That Brat?


Tree


Careful, William. Come with me and you will see how Barb's life is without her job,  


Barb sits on her bed sobbing


Barb


God. He's right. I'm stupid.  How am I going to pay the bills? How am I supposed to send Christmas Money to Mom and Dad now? Oh God, I'm so sorry Mom and Dad.  


William


She-sends money to her parents?


Tree


Every year she takes what little raise you give her and sends that money to her parents and donates it to people who need more than she does.


William


But her bills?


Tree


They're important, yes, but they're not as important as her parents to her.  Somehow, she always manages to pull through and make it on her own.  


William  


Oh no, no. That simply won't do.  


Tree


We have one more person to see before you head back.   


Christmas  


Jake? Dinner is almost served.  


Jake


It smells wonderful  


Christmas


Well then let's hurry up


William


That's Jake Green. The last I heard of him was... He took his own life. Poor fellow.  Poor Christmas. She seemed happy with him,  


Tree


She was. He was the only man to ever treat her decently.  It took her a long time to fall in love again and when she did, she found Jake.  


William


And then she lost him.  You know, I believe she tried telling me once she was unlucky in love... I didn't believe her.  There must be something I can do to help.  


Tree


Oh, but there is.  You can learn to grow a heart. You can learn to take care of people. It won't be easy, but I have the utmost faith in you.  Now I'm going to return you to the office where Christmas will be found, don't screw it up, William.  I mean it.  


Christmas


William?


William


Christmas Snow? Is it you?  Really?


Christmas and William hug


Christmas


It's me, William. You should be thanking Barb for finding me.


William


Speaking of Barb, would you mind terribly coming with me? I have amends to make with her. But first, I owe you an apology.  Christmas, I'm so sorry for the way I've acted and how I've treated you. You never deserved it and I'd love to be your boyfriend. No, not your boyfriend. Your husband, One day.  If you'll have me.  


Christmas


Oh, William, of course, I'll have you.  Now let's go make amends to Barb.  


William knocks on the door


Barb


Get out


William  


Miss Williamson, I will leave, but please at least listen to what I have to say first.  


Barb crosses her arms


Barb


Fine


William


I've been terribly harsh on you. I've come to offer your job back. However, if you do not want it, I will recommend you to a wonderful place with a full raise and a bonus.   


Barb


Seriously? Are you serious?


William


As serious as a heart attack.


Barb


Then I will ask for a new recommendation for a new place


William  


Fair enough (Writes out a check) Merry Christmas, Barb!   


Barb


Merry Christmas! A Very Merry Christmas


Barb laughs and holds up the check
