This was a project I was working on with a few people but unfortunately didn’t happen. So I thought I’d continue on with some of my ideas. A part from your standard Batman movies, I have no real experience with the comic books or fan fiction sides of things. But I love insanity and creepy things so I loved the idea of this project. There are 3 episodes in this story. I will publish them all separately.
Episode 1 – “He’s real I tell you”
Opening scene: Anna is in a canteen sitting on a table with Scarface They are whispering about doing a performance. This “conversation” gets noticed by people.
Anna: Okay, okay. But if we do it we have to do it my way okay?
Anna: But you said I could. Please, okay? If you love me you – Thank you.
(She’s looking timidly around, trying to arouse more attention. People notice and begin to watch. She conjures some courage and begins her performance)
Anna: H-Hello everyone, I am The Ventriloquist.
Scarface: Like they care.
(Some small laughter)
Anna: And this is –
Scarface: The good looking one.
Anna: Will you please stop it, your ruining our show! This is Scarface. So, what about that –
Scarface: Hey toots! You suck; why not let me take over?
Scarface: Did I say you could talk? Don’t think I did. And people think I’m the dummy.
Anna: (whispers to him) But you promised me.
Scarface: Women! You can never get them to shut up, am I right? And talk about clingy, she’s always got tails on my ass. Literally.
(Laughter continues to grow)
Scarface: I mean, I do love the girl, don’t get me wrong, but once and awhile I’d like to do the penetrating.
Anna: Please –
Scarface: I’m not done. And talk about the height difference. I think I have constant whiplash. If the guys taller you get to look down and see her good angle. Ever looked up at a chick from this angle? I’m telling you it ain’t pretty man.
Anna: Stop it!
Scarface: Hey babe. I’m just having a laugh. We’re killing it see.
Anna: No, it’s not funny you promised we’d do it my way?
Scarface: Yeah but your way was, how can I put this? *pretends to snore* boring!
(Laughter gets louder)
Spectator #1: You’re some funny girl!
Spectator #2: How do you do it!
Anna: Do what?
Spectator #1: C’mon. Don’t act dumb now sweet cheeks
Anna looks down at Scarface who is staring at her.
Scarface: They won’t believe you.
Anna: No, he’s real.
(Laughter begins again)
Anna: I’m serious. He’s real.
Spectator: Sure thing chick!
Anna: No! I can prove it!
Anna walks away from Scarface leaving him on the table.
Anna: Tell them.
(Scarface is sitting, staring blankly back at Anna)
Anna: Tell them! Why are you doing this? Just tell them. Talk to me!
Spectator #3: Love, do you really expect us to be-
Anna: Shush, I swear! He is. Talk to me darling, please.
Just say something. Anything.
JUST SAY SOMETHING!
(The spectators start to walk away, some still chuckling. Some bored of her protesting.)
Anna: I swear! Why don’t you believe me? He’s real.
(As everyone is gone, she moves back to Scarface hurt and upset.)
Scarface: See! I told you no one would believe you
Anna: Why didn’t you show them?
Scarface: Because it ain’t got nothin’ to do with anyone.
Anna: But they laughed at me.
Scarface: It was a show, they were supposed to laugh.
Anna: You mean it was your show.
Scarface: Hey! Don’t take the huff with me. You wanted a show, I did a show. What you upset about?
Anna: Those things you said about me.
Scarface: It was an act, I didn’t mean it.
Anna: How do I know?
Scarface: Because I love you twoots, you know I do.
Anna: It doesn’t feel like it, why do you never talk about it?
Scarface: Talk about what?
Anna: Marrying me?
Scarface: Not this again, you know we will soon.
Anna: But when? I need to –
Scarafce: I SAID SOON! I’m sick of this!
Anna: I was only wondering, I-
Scarface: Well don’t! You know I don’t like all these questions and attitude.
Anna: I’m sorry.
Scarface: We were having a good time, getting laugh’s and you ruined it!
Anna: I’m sorry.
Scarface: Like you ruin everything!
Anna: I’m really sorry, I –
Scarface: Just do what I say and everything works out, doesn’t it?
Scarface: Good. Now let’s go. I’m sick of in here. Let’s go see where they keep their good meds.
(Anna picks up Scarface cradling him like a precious possession, walking away, blackout)
