Heart of a Cane: Episode#5

Episode#5


Three Years Later: Senior Year


Leigh sits down on a bench


Leigh


Ellie, what's wrong? You look sad.   


Eleanor


I'll to that in a moment, but first I want to give you your Christmas present, okay?  


Eleanor hands Leigh an envelope  


Eleanor


I didn't know what to get to you.


Leigh


It's perfect. You know how much I love poetry...   


Leigh hands Eleanor a ring box  


Leigh


What's wrong? I thought you'd be happy.


Eleanor


This promise ring is beautiful, Leigh, but I can't accept it.  I have to be honest with you about something. The last I'd ever want to do is hurt you, but I'm not happy anymore.  It's not you. It's me. Also, I'm going out of state for college.  


Leigh


What? Why am I just now hearing about this?  Please don't leave. Stay here with me,


Leigh gets on her knees.


Eleanor


Don't beg. A lady never begs. It's quite unbecoming.  


Leigh


I'm going to miss you.


Eleanor


Look at me.   I hate leaving you, Leigh. Why don't you come with me? You're well enough to travel now. Think about it. You'd be away from Moira.   


Leigh


Ellie, I can't go with you. I got a scholarship for Phoenix.  I"m not about to mess that up. I don't want to be torn away from you, though.  


Eleanor


Well, we'll never be far apart, okay?  We'll call each other.  Also, I'm sure you'll be coming home for the holidays. I will, too, I know it's not the same, but we have our whole lives ahead of us.  I don't want to wast a moment.  


Leigh


So being with me was a waste of your time?


Eleanor



That's not what I meant, Leigh.  My love, I love you so very much, but we've been together for four years.  Don't you want to explore? Meet new people?  


Leigh


What are you saying, Ellie? Are you saying you want to date other people?  


Eleanor


To put it bluntly, yes.  


Leigh


I guess if you want to break up, I can't force you to stay. Goodbye, Ellie. Thank you for the gift and I hope you have a wonderful life. Merry Christmas.  


Luke


Leigh? What's wrong? Why do you look like you've lost your best friend?


Leigh


Because I'm pretty sure I just did.


Luke


I know a Christmas gift won't mend your broken heart, but how about you open one anyway.  (Luke hands Leigh a box)  


Leigh


Bob! But how? We buried you and I never thought I'd see you again.


Luke


I had a little help. You can come in now!


Moira


Relax. I'm not going to hurt you, Leigh. I just want to apologize to you.  


Leigh runs to her room


Moira


Leigh Harper, let me in this instant. Let me in right now if you don't want your dad to know things are weird between us.  


Leigh opens the door


Leigh


Stay.. stay away from me


Moira


Aww... what's the matter are you afraid of me?  


(Moira takes Leigh's face in her hands)


Moira


I asked you a question, Leigh. Are you afraid of me?  Good. You should be because I'm going to make your life a living hell, and there's nothing you can do about it. Now come on, I have a Christmas gift for you.  


Moira drags Leigh to a ditch  


Moira


It''s in there, but you have to get it out yourself.  You can trust me.  


Moira pushes Leigh into the ditch


Leigh


Moira! Let me out of here. I know you're not this evil!


Moira


Are you forgetting that I'm the girl who locked you in a closet?  I told you I was going to make your life a living hell.  Oh, one more thing? If you panic, the more air you lose.  So I would just shut up. Now goodnight.
