Episode 24 - The Calming

INT.BISTRO.SIENNA AND BRICK ARE HAVING A DRINK.MICHAEL WALKS IN AGITATED AND HEADS STRAIGHT TO THE BAR.
BRICK
Oh, look, your dad has just come in.
SIENNA
Where? (turns head) Oh, there he is.Oh dear, he does not look happy.
BRICK
I wonder what has him so riled?
SIENNA
Ah, my guess is that would be me.
BRICK
Why, what did you do?
SIENNA
He rang me just before we went out shopping and I burst into tears and told him the whole sorry story.Obviously I was feeling a whole lot less confident then, than I do now with all the help and support you and Emerald are giving me.
BRICK
I think we should invite him over.He should hear the good news,That way he will be able to sleep tonight.
SIENNA
The good news! Hah.
BRICK
Now, now, I thought we were past all that.You take another swig of that very effective Margarita and I will bring him over.
SIENNA
Mmmm.Good idea.Order me another while you’re up there.This one is going down very easy.(both laugh).
BRICK
It’s a good thing you are my cousin or I could have my wicked way …

Episode 23 - The Alterations

INT.  BANNISTER HOUSE
SIENNA Em, we’re back. 
EMERALD Great.  Show me what you found.
SIENNA Okay.  It’s lovely, but nowhere near as good as the dress you made for me.
EMERALD That’s alright.  I have a plan.
BRICK What plan?
EMERALD I will tell you in a moment.  First show me the dress.  I won’t really know what needs to be done until I see it, and we really don’t have much time left.
BRICK PUTS DRESS BOX ON TABLE AND SIENNA OPENS IT AND PULLS OUT DRESS.
SIENNA Voila!  Here it is.
EMERALD Okay.  I see. Hmmm.
SIENNA Oh, god.  You hate it!
EMERALD No I don’t Si.  It is truly beautiful and if you were one of the audience this would be perfect.
SIENNA But I am not in the audience.  I am on the stage.  I am supposed to wow them all.
BRICK You will, Sienna, you will.  Relax.  It is a gorgeous dress and you look stunning in it.  You loved it when you put it on, remember.
SIENNA It’s true.  I did really enjoy wearing it, but not for the launch show stopper!

Episode 22 - The Adultery

INT.  KIRANA’S APARTMENT.  KIRANA FALLS THROUGH THE DOOR, EVIDENTLY DRUNK.  EDWARD SUPPORTS HER TO STOP HER FROM FALLING.
EDWARD Whoa there.  Careful.
KIRANA (giggling)  Oops.  The floor moved.
EDWARD I rather think the floor stayed still.
KIRANA Nope.  One minute it was there, then the next it shifted.
EDWARD Alright.  Let’s get you onto the sofa.  Sofa’s don’t have a tendency to move by themselves.
KIRANA Mmmmm. (flops onto the sofa). Nice.
EDWARD (sitting next to her and wiping her hair away from her forhead) I do believe you may have had just a teensy bit too much to drink.
KIRANA (hiccupping and giggling) I think so too.  It was fun though.
EDWARD Yes, it has been.  It doesn’t have to end just yet you know.
KIRANA That paella was divine, and the bubbles in the champagne were like a party in my mouth.  I haven’t had a meal like that in a very long time.
EDWARD We could have more dinners like that if you want.
KIRANA (shifting on the couch to face Edward.  Edward grabs her feet, takes off her shoes, and s…

Episode 21 - The Ultimatum

INT.  RUBY’S OFFICE
MICHAEL I just got off the phone with Emerald.  Is it true.
RUBY Take a seat, Michael.
MICHAEL I don’t want to sit down.  I want to know if you really did give Sienna’s costume to Flora?
RUBY Yes, it’s true.  I did it, alright!
MICHAEL What the hell were you thinking?  Do you understand what you have done?  Not only have you affected Sienna’s character foundation, but you have totally destroyed Emerald’s overarching design concept – not to mention my artistic intentions.  This is not just a simple case of girls wearing each other’s clothes.
RUBY Don’t be silly Micheal.  It is just a dress.
MICHAEL It is not ‘just a dress’ at all.  Ergh.  It is moments like these I realise you have absolutely no idea how artists work.
RUBY I think you are over exaggerating a bit.  You were all quite happy for Flora to have to go out and buy her own dress.  Why is it different for Sienna?  Perhaps because it is YOUR child being inconvenienced this time.
MICHAEL You know that is not true.  That dress w…

Episode 20 - The Intrusion

INT.  RUBY’S OFFICE
RIVER The catering has been finalized.  The set is almost finished.  Emerald just needs to drop in the backdrop cloth we were working on today. I believe Flora and Edward had their first rehearsal this afternoon, so I assume that will work out too.
RUBY I hope so.  How did Sienna go finding a new dress?
RIVER I haven’t heard back from her yet.  Brick went with her though, so it should go okay.  You know, we were all pretty shocked with your decision about this.
RUBY I know.  It was a hard call to make, but I really didn’t have a choice.  You know, there is some truth to the belief that she is being left out of things.
RIVER Mum, she is not being left out.  She doesn’t want to participate.  There is a difference you know.
RUBY I know.  It just made me really upset seeing the three of you together without her.  She needs role models and guidance at this point in her life, and who better to turn to for that than her own sister and cousins?
RIVER You are right, mum.  I will try hard…

Episode 19- The Seduction

INT.  BISTRO.  KIRANA AND EDWARD SIPPING DRINKS.
KIRANA This is a lovely place.
EDWARD Yes.  I come here often.
KIRANA It has a very elegant ambience.  I can see why you like it.  Not to mention how conveniently close it is to the theatre.
EDWARD All of that, and the food is superb.  Alejandro, the chef, makes the most outstanding paella.  Would you like to share one with me?
KIRANA Oh, no thanks.  I can’t really stay that long.  I have a lot of preparation to do for my recital – and the launch tomorrow, of course!
EDWARD Ah, yes, the launch.  Well, you know, we still have a lot to talk over about that, so we might be here awhile.  It only makes sense to combine working and eating together.  That way you will be able to use your time afterwards to focus on your recital.
KIRANA (laughing) Your logic defies argument, and to be honest I am rather hungry.
EDWARD Excellent!  (indicates for waiter, who comes over)  Ask Alejandro to prepare his best paella de deux for myself and this beautiful lady.  Oh, an…
