Heart of a Cane: Episode#4

Episode#4


Eleanor and Luke are decorating for Thanksgiving  


Leigh


Do you need any help, Dad?  


Luke


Nope, Ellie here has been a wonderful help.   


Eleanor


Will Bob be joining the festivities?


Luke winks at his daughter


Leigh


I don't know. It depends on how I'm feeling. Which I'm starting to feel much stronger.  


Luke


Whoa... East there, tiger.  You're not out of the woods yet.  We still have a few more doctors appoints to go, remember?  


Eleanor


Oh, I have something for you. I think you've gone long enough without one.  (Eleanor puts a phone in Leigh's hand)  I think you need one in case of emergencies. Don't worry, your dad agreed to it?  It's nothing fancy, but it also has an alert on there in case you' 're ever in danger again.  


Leigh and Eleanor hug


Leigh


I'm going to freshen up for our guests. 


Luke


You didn't tell her, did you?  


Eleanor


Tell her what exactly, Mr. Harper? Oh yeah, I know you were just locked in a closet by Moira, but now your insane mother is stalking you? I don't like hiding this one bit from her, Mr. Harper, but the fact is that she's been too distracted to notice anything.  


Luke


Shh... Keep your voice down, will ya?  


Leigh


Mom is doing what now? I heard everything.


Luke


Leigh, honey. We were going to tell you.  


Leigh


Yeah?  When? And you? How could you hiding something like that from me, and don't say you were protecting me!


Eleanor


But I was!  


Leigh runs out of the house with Bob


Bob


It's creepy out here. I don't like it.


Leigh


Sh... I'm pretty sure we're being followed.   



Lindsay


Still talking to that cane, I see?  I think it's time your dad learns a lesson. Don't you, Leigh?  


Leigh


Mom? What are you doing?


Lindsay


Teaching you a lesson. I give you life and you repay me by being a spoiled brat.   


Tiger confronts her  


Lindsay


Good lick surviving.  


Bob unties Leigh and distracts the tiger while Leigh runs away  


Leigh runs inside


Leigh


I-Mom


Leigh collapses


Eleanor


Her cane? She doesn't have it!


Leigh


Don't go after Bob.  There's a ticker. It almost attacked me.


Luke comes back inside with half-eaten cane  


Leigh


Bob! No! You can't leave me. I need you!


Bob


Leigh, listen to me, okay?  You gave me a chance... Thank you...  


Leigh


No!


Luke


Honey, I'm afraid we can't fix him this time.  


Leigh


Goodbye, Bob. I'm going to miss you.  


Leigh throws herself into Eleanor's arms sobbing


Int. Doctor's office


Nurse


Leigh Harper


Leigh and Jania bump into each other


Leigh and Jania  


Oh I'm so sorry


Leigh


I know it's none of my business, but is she okay?  


Doctor Maze


Sorry, honey. I take doctor-patient confidentiality seriously. We're just going to take an x-ray to make sure everything's okay.  I have good news for you! You're a candidate for knee surgery.  Now, you'll have to walk with a limp for a while because surgery won't be until after the holidays.  I was was sorry to hear about what happened to your cane, but maybe that was the sign that you needed.  


Leigh


Are you okay?


Jania


I just got some bad knees that I'm not a candidate for surgery.  So, it looks like I'm going to be a freak for the rest of my life.  


Eleanor


I don't think you're a freak, and I'm sure your friends don't think that either.   


Jania


I'm Jania Gates. I'm surprised you haven't heard of me.


Leigh


Should I have?


Jania hands Eleanor a news article


Jania


Keep it, and if we do see each other again, you can give it back to me then.  


Luke


Ready?


Eleanor


Your dad called to tell me the good news, so I thought to make your favorite. Meatloaf.  


Thanksgiving  


Leigh


I thought it was going to be the three of this year.  


Luke


Yeah about that. I've taken the liberty of finding people and inviting them here.


Leigh


Dad!


Luke


I know you're cautious, Leigh, but sometimes being too cautious can cost us future friendships.   


Leigh


Need any help?


Eleanor


Nope. How does it look?


Leigh


Perfect. Just like you.


Eleanor


That's impossible.  You and I both know I am far from perfect.  


Jania and Gil knock on the door


Jania


Leigh, this is my boyfriend, Gil.  Gil, Leigh.  


Leigh  


Nice to you, Gil. Let's go eat, shall we?  


Leigh goes outside  


Leigh


Happy Thanksgiving,Bob. Wherever you are.
