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, and bring a bottle of Verve Cliquot as well. (waiter nods and leaves)

KIRANA
Oh.  Are we celebrating something?  I thought this was a business meeting.

EDWARD
Of course, of course.  We are celebrating the business of our meeting. (looks intensely into her eyes and grabs her hand).

KIRANA
(pulling her hand away) Oh, ummm, well alright.  Although, with the time frame we have, we might not be celebrating anything tomorrow night.

EDWARD
Enough about tomorrow night.  I want to take this moment and enjoy being in the company of a beautiful woman and a magical first meeting.

KIRANA
Aren’t you married to Mrs Drummond?  Should I even be here with you?

EDWARD
Relax, my dear.  We are not doing anything wrong...yet. (smiling mischievously).  Or perhaps your protestations mean you are starting to feel something for me that is not purely business?

KIRANA
Oh, no, no.  Not at all.

EDWARD
You wound me.

KIRANA
Oh, I am sorry.  That was rude.  Of course you are an incredibly handsome man, and very charming too.  Dangerously so, perhaps.  I just don’t want you to think I am misinterpreting your attentions.

EDWARD
(laughing)  Relax, pretty one.  I am misinterpreting nothing.  Now let’s just sit back and enjoy great food, wonderful champagne, and entrancing conversation.  (takes her hand again gently kisses it).

KIRANA
Yes.  That sounds lovely.  (finishes her drink in one gulp).


END.
