Scream Dream

Intro: (Talking) Narrative

Love........What does it mean?

Does anybody know how to love?

I mean...You can give all of you and still feel empty. I used to believe in love. I wanted it so badly like the air I breathe but now........Well here’s my story!!!!!

CHAPTER ONE

SCREAM DREAM


It’s the dead of night and Kayla is having a nightmare about her ex Thomas trying to kill her. She wakes up in a cold sweat; her heart is racing as she turns and looks at the clock. Kayla notices she is almost late for class. She jumps out of bed, proceeds to use the restroom, shower and get dressed for class.


Kayla

Stop it, Thomas…You’re hurting me…Nooooo.


Thomas

You bitches are all the same.


Kayla

Thomas, I can’t breathe.


Thomas

My momma said you were nothing.

She told me you would try to use me.

You think you are going leave me, after all, I did for you?

I’ll kill you before I let you leave me bitch!!!


Kayla

Thomas Nooooo…I’m sorry baby…. I’m sorry.


Thomas

You sorry alright…Bitch.


Kayla wakes up and lets out a blood-curdling scream gasping for air as she holds her chest in fear thinking to herself she needs to make an appointment to see a therapist.


Kayla

I need to see Dr. Walton.


(Arms over head / Looks at clock)


Kayla

Damn it I’m going to be late.


Kayla uses the toilet. Proceeds to take a shower. Kayla wipes the mirror of fog and gets dressed, makes up face and proceeds out the door.



LOW RIDE


Kayla is waiting on the bus to get to school. Her favorite bus driver greets her. The bus pulls up and doors open.



Bus Driver

Good morning Ms. Lady


Kayla

Good morning



Bus Driver

Is everything ok? You look like you had a rough night.



Kayla

Yeah…I’ll be ok tho …Thanks for asking.



Stranger

People got places to be you know.



Kayla rolls her eyes, sucks her teeth and proceeds to her seat. She pulls out her book to refresh her memory for her quiz. The day is like any other day. She closes her eyes and takes a deep breath. Kayla continues to review her notes not realizing her stop is quickly approaching. Kayla lifts her head up, Rings the bell and gets off the back of the bus. She proceeds to walk four blocks towards the school. Headphones in her ears and playing her music. Kayla walks through the school door.


SCHOOL BLUES


Students in the hallway greet Kayla. She proceeds to the classroom and is hosted by her professor/chef.



Chef

Good morning Kayla.




Kayla

Good morning.




Chef

Good job on the puff pastries for the school bake sale. Keep up the great.



Kayla

Thanks Chef



Chef

Keep this up, and you’ll be sure to get that grade you deserve.

Also, while it’s on my mind there is a bake-off competition here at school, and the grand prize is $2000, a trophy and certificate. Would you be interested?



Before Chef could finish her words, Kayla interrupts with excitement. Her smile was one of a lottery winner.




Kayla

Yes, Chef…. I would be honored to enter. Where do I sign up?

I can use the money too.



Chef


Great…. Great!!!

See me after class, and I’ll give you all the info then. You’re welcome to work alone, or with another student, It’s your call.



Kayla

Thanks, chef.



Chef

You’re very welcome. It’s time for class. See you in a few minutes.

I need to get my morning coffee. I’ll see you shortly.



Chef winks at Kayla and gets up to leave heading towards the cafeteria. Kayla follows going the opposite direction, goes into the lady’s room to check her face. She frowns as she walks in wondering what the stench smell of old sewage and dead magnets were. She quickly turns around and walks out letting out a deep breath of fresh air.


Kayla

Good lord

Whhhoooooowooooo



Kayla proceeds towards the classroom and notices two females in the hallway giving her the blank stare. They are whispering to each other. Kayla starts to approach both girls, but chef intervenes calling out Kayla’s name like she knew it was about to get confrontational. Kayla rolls her eyes and responds sarcastically.


Chef

Kaaaayyyylllaaa


Kayla

Yes Chef


Chef

Don’t you have somewhere to be a young lady?



Kayla

I’m on my way now


Kayla gives the females an evil eye roll as she walks past. They laugh as she walks pass. Chef shakes her head and sips on her coffee.


Kayla is doing her work and interacting with students.


It’s almost time for lunch. Kayla pulls out a fresh garden salad she prepared the night before and proceeds to eat when her phone rings. It’s her sister Drea. Kayla looks at the phone as if she dreads to answer…Then she finally answers.


Kayla

Hey Sis


Drea

Really?


Kayla

Whhhaaaattt?



Drea

Is that how you sound when you answer your phone for your Lil sister?



Kayla

Drea…. What do you want?


Drea

I was just checking on you to see if you were ok.

You know I love you.


Kayla looks up in the air smacking and chewing in Drea’s ear.


Drea

Do you have to smack in my ear like that?






Kayla

Look, Drea, I only have 30 minutes for lunch. Can I help you with something?


Drea

You can.

We need to figure out what to do for mom this year. You know it’s been two years since she passed and I want to do something for her birthday.



Kayla

Damn…Do you have to remind me?






Kayla gets silent as her mood quickly turns to sadness.



Drea

Kayla…. Hello…



Kayla

I’m here…. Ok, look can we talk about this when I get home?



Drea

Really? Wow ok Kayla



Kayla

Damn it Drea…. We can talk about this later. I have a quiz after this, and I need to focus. No disrespect ok. I love you, and I’ll call you later.



Drea

I love you too… Whatever girl bye.




They both hang up the phone. Kayla looks up at the clock on the wall and realizes she only has ten minutes to finish her lunch. She finishes her food and heads back to class.




SUNNY DAY



It’s time to leave for the day. Kayla is packing her things when chef greets her with the information for the school bakeoff. Chef rubs Kayla back and proceeds to speak in a soft tone.



Chef

Here you go, my dear.



Kayla

Chef

Your welcome. Make sure to have this back to me by Friday. All entries must be turned in by Monday afternoon.



Kayla

Yes, mam…No problem.



Chef

Kayla
