INT. DRESSING ROOM - DAY.

 

PAUL and HENRY are sitting almost in the dark. They're both wearing tuxedos.

 

PAUL

It's normal.

 

HENRY

Is it?

 

PAUL

Sure.

 

HENRY

She's… 65 minutes late.

 

PAUL (adamant)

It's normal.

 

JIMMY enters.

 

HENRY

Anything?

 

JIMMY shakes his head. HENRY shoots PAUL a panicked look.

 

PAUL

Normal. Come on. You saw what she was like at New Year. You were lucky you made it by midnight.

 

JIMMY

Yeah. Didn't you say you almost left without her?

 

HENRY

I guess.

 

JIMMY

You said she tried on six different pairs of boots.

 

HENRY

Yeah but this is different. It's one pair of shoes. One dress. 

 

PAUL

She'll be here.

 

HENRY

Jimmy, will you go out and check again?

 

JIMMY nods and leaves.

 

HENRYWe had to pick the venue with no phone signal.

 

PAUL and HENRY sit in silence for a while. PAUL is playing with the button on his sleeve when it comes off. He quietly slides it into his pocket so HENRY doesn't see. HENRY checks his phone for signal.

 

HENRY

Nothing.

 

JIMMY opens the door.

 

PAUL

Well?

 

HENRY

Anything?

 

JIMMY nods.

fresh air

fawns at our lungs,

speak to me

in hushed whispers

in afternoon lulls,

prise mysteries apart

on our backs

and fight indulgent sleep.


trace where time

should twist

upon my wrist

but...

your words are superficial wounds

but their scratches will scar.

The footsteps above shook old plaster out from between the wooden boards, showering their heads with debris. They had been down there forty minutes and the man showed no sign of...
