SCENE 1

 

EVA

(EVA enters R. Goes to embrace RICK)

Now that this is all over, why donít you come back to my apartmentÖ

RICK

(Pushes EVA away)

Thanks but no thanks.

 

EVA

(Hurt)

What do you mean?

 

RICK

I have a confession to make.

 

EVA

What?

 

RICK

I donít like you.

 

EVA

Not even a little?

 

RICK

I thought I liked you. Before I met you I practically worshiped you. But the woman I see on TV isnít the one I see here before me now.

 

EVA

Maybe youíre thinking of that Jennifer Lawrence. People are always getting us confused.

 

RICK

Somebodyís confused. Thatís for sure.

 

EVA

Why are you still upset? Daddy is going to marry Cami and unite the factions of Craphvia. Weíll finally have peace.

 

RICK

Power corrupts, Eva. Cami will be put on display and things will quiet down for awhile. But things wonít change. They never do.

 

EVA

I donít even know why I like you. You depress me.

 

RICK

Go then. Iím not stopping you. The snow is melting and youíre free.



 

EVA

Fine. Iíll go. But youíll regret this. Youíll never have a chance to be with someone like me ever again.

 

RICK

You promise?

 

EVA

(Breaks down crying)

Youíre the wicked one now. How can you be so hurtful?

 

RICK

(Trying not to give in)

Those real or fake tears?

 

EVA

What do you care?

 

RICK

Eva, Iím sorry. I donít mean to be so cold, but you must admit, you havenít treated me very well tonight.

 

EVA

I donít treat anyone very well.

 

RICK

Do you know why?

 

EVA

Maybe I try to make people hate me, because itís doesnít hurt so much when they leave me.

 

RICK

Like your mother?

 

EVA

Mind your own business. I donít need you to psychoanalyze me.

 

RICK

Iím sorry. Please, donít be mad. Iím just trying to help.

 

EVA

The best way to help me is to leave me alone.

 

RICK

Fine, Eva. Go. Forgive me for trying to be nice.

 

EVA

Nice? You call this nice? Rejecting me, telling me Iím a horrible personÖ

 

RICK

Thatís not what Iím saying.

 

EVA

Then what are you saying?

 

RICK

Try being friendly once in a while. Be yourself and donít put on an act.

 

EVA

What if no one likes me that way?

 

RICK

Someone will. I believe we all have someone special waiting for us.

 

EVA

I hope youíre right.

 

RICK

I know Iím right.

 

EVA

Rick? Do you think you could be that someone special?

 

RICK

I donít know, Eva. Letís give it some time. Right now, Iím tired, hungry and confused.

 

EVA

Is it okay if I look you up sometime?

 

RICK

I donít know. I donít know anything right now. But one thingís for sure.

 

EVA

Whatís that Rick?

 

RICK

Weíll always have Amarillo.
