Heart of a Cane: Episode#2

Narrator


Remember me? Leigh with the bad knee? I'm back, but this time it's Ellie's story to tell.  


Lindsay  


My little girl is all grown up.  High school sophomore! Boy, how time flies.  (Kisses Leigh's forehead) Your dad and I have set up and appointment for the knee doctor. Please use your cane today, okay?   


Bus honks


Leigh


What's wrong, Ellie and don't say nothing.  


Ellie


My parents kicked me out of the house last night. So I've been staying with my grandparents.


Leigh


What? Why?


Ellie


Leigh, I have to tell you something, but I just don't know how to tell you.  


Leigh


What is it?


Ellie


No, not here. Meet me at the Rainy Cafe after school today, okay?  


Leigh


Oh...kay... In the meantime,you're staying with me. I don't think staying with your grandparents is a great idea.  


People stare


Leigh


If you're that interested, take a picture!  


Someone snickers


Leigh tries to put Bob in her locker


Ellie


You need him


Moira taps Eleanor on the shoulder


Ellie


What?


Moira


Did you tell your little freak friend here about your secret? Or should I? I have no problem spilling the beans.


Leigh


That's why you can't keep a best friend, isn't it, Moira  


Moravia


How dare you?! I'm keeping an eye on you. Just be aware of that!  


Leigh


Ellie, are you okay?  


Ellie


I'm fine. Look, I'll see you after school, okay?  


Random student


I heard she likes girls


Int. Rainy Cafe


Leigh


Okay, I've had enough of the anticipation. What's going on, Ellie?  


Ellie


I like girls!


Leigh



Okay. So the rumors are true?  This is what you needed to talk to me about in private. It all makes sense now.


Ellie


You're not going to run away or tell me I'm disgusting?


Leigh  


Why would I do that?


Ellie


Moira and I used to be best friends, but when I told her I liked girls, she turned on me. She exposed my secret to everyone in a group chat It wasn't her story to tell.   


Leigh


No, it wasn't. Now I'm angry (Leigh gets up)  


Ellie


Where are you going?


Leigh


To Confront Moira


Ellie


No, I don't think that's a good idea.  


Leigh


Do you want her to get away with this for the rest of her life? What she did was wrong on so many levels.


Ellie


I don't care, Leigh.  


Leigh


Well, I do. I'm going to confront her. You don't have to come with, but she needs to know she can't get away with this.   


Leigh stands in front of Moira


Moira


Oh? Has the little freak come out to play?


Leigh


Enough, Moira. I'm here to talk to you about Eleanor.  


Moira


Now that I think about it, you two freaks are perfect for each other!  


Leigh


Enough! How could you humiliate and embarrass Eleanor like that?  It wasn't your story to tell your secret to expose, now was it?  


Moira


What she's doing is wrong! Not to mention sick!


Leigh


Okay. Listen, it's one thing to insult me. However, I won't have you bullying Eleanor.  


Moira


What? Are you her bodyguard? The girl really has you fooled, doesn't she? Mark my words. You're going to regret the day you ever defended her! Mark my words.   


Int. Home


Leigh


Ellie, what is it?  


Ellie


It's my parents. On my way here they got into a car wreck. I have to go back to my grandparents tonight.


Leigh


No! If you go back there. I have a bad feeling about this.  I know you love then, but they're toxic people.  That kind of environment can't be healthy for you.  I'm going to sleep.  Don't think we're not going to talk about this because we are.  


Leigh taps Bob on the head


Bob


It's been five million years!  


Leigh


Sh... I don't want Eleanor to know I woke you up. She'll freak out.  She's having some trouble at school right now, and I don't know what to do.   


Bob


Have you tried talking to her? I know it's tough. So d you, but Eleanor's world is crashing down around her. The same way you did when you found out about your knee problems, remember? You and Eleanor don't need me, and you don't need me to give you advice.  


Leigh


That's just it, Bob! We both need you! Please stick around?   


Int. Next day at school


Moira steps in front Leigh and Bob


Moira  


Well... If this isn't a shocking sight, then I don't know what is.  (Grabs Eleanor)  


Bob jumps out of Leigh's hands and attacks Moira


Int. At home


Lindsay


Did you that Moira girl with your cane, Leigh?  


Leigh


No! Bob jumped out of my hands!  


Leigh


I thought we were done with this delusion! Bob is a cane! He can't talk! Give me that cane! Now!  


Lindsay picks up the ax and smashes Bob


Luke


Lindsay! Have you lost your mind?


Lindsay


This cane has done nothing but make her crazy! She believes the cane is alive, Luke!  


Luke


That cane helped Leigh gain an A in English! That cane brought us closer!  


Lindsay


Oh my God! She's got you believing, it too! If that Bob is alive, why did he hit Moira?  


Leigh


He was defending Eleanor! Moira was bullying her! Also from what I can tell, Moira was going to drag her into a dangerous situation!


Lindsay


That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. I'm taking Bob. Don't worry, you'll have something to walk with, but it won't be Bob.  


Leigh


No!  (Leigh collapses)


Luke runs over to Leigh to hug her


Luke


Get out of my house, Lindsay! How dare you do that our daughter?!  It's okay.  It's okay. Now explain to me why Bob defending Eleanor.  


Eleanor


I believe I should do that, Mr. Harper.  I like girls.  Especially one in particular.   


Luke


I'll leave you two alone,


Leigh and Eleanor kiss
