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 harder with her.  She doesn’t make it easy though.

RUBY
Perhaps you should give her a call to see how rehearsals went?

MICHAEL STORMS IN.

MICHAEL
Ruby!  What the hell is going on?

RUBY
Michael.  Hi.  I was kind of expecting you.

MICHAEL
I bet you were!  Is it true?  Have you given Sienna’s costume to Flora?

RUBY
River, I think we have covered all the important things.  You can go.

RIVER
Are you sure you want me to leave Mum?

RUBY
Yes.  Go.  Your uncle and I have to sort this out alone.

RIVER
Okay, but I won’t be far away.  Call me if you need me.  (River exits).


END.
