Throwback Thursday: Sunshine’s Night of Darkness, Scene 5

July 3, 2014

SCENE ONE (and an explanation of what the hell is going on with these posts)

——————-

SUNSHINE’S NIGHT OF DARKNESS

Synopsis:  It’s Sunshine’s first day of work in security at the P.U.R.E Corporation and all she wants to do is make it through orientation, but first she’s got to fill out a name tag requisition form, fit her uniform, meet a cute computer geek … oh, and save her fellow employees from genetically-mutated, blood-lusting vampires.

Notes: All work is registered with the WGC & the WGA.

– Scene Five –

INT. LAB 17, RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, P.U.R.E CORPORATION – LATER

Leila, still in sunglasses, crosses her ankles and perches on a chair while Dixon paces.

DIXON

Leila, I really must caution –

LEILA

You have.

DIXON

The animal tests have not been conclusive … and … and … your multiple surgeries … perhaps compromised immune system … don’t make you an ideal –

LEILA

What makes me ideal is my signature on your paycheques and the generous, shall we say, grants that keep your department top-of-the-line.

DIXON

Of course, I meant –

LEILA

We also wouldn’t want the government catching wind of any of your … experiments, which I, for the sake of P.U.R.E’s dedicated clients, would have to disavow any knowledge of. In fact, to the board your grants could look a little like … embezzlement?

DIXON

But –

LEILA

Were some of the trials successful?

DIXON

Well, yes. But –

Leila removes her sunglasses. Her eyes (and her face) are stretched almost beyond that of a recognizable human.

LEILA

I need this.

DIXON

– not yet on humans!

LEILA

I refuse to go on this way. I know the risks and the rewards … I have a dinner party tonight, and many of my guests, my wealthy friends would pay many, many hundreds of thousands if you can do what you say you can.

DIXON

I … I –

LEILA

– could open your own lab on your own private island with your percentage. That is, if you ever wanted to leave P.U.R.E.

DIXON

Never. I would never want to leave.

LEILA

Good. So, I sit in that chair over there?
