Final Part of Short Film Script

INT. COMMUNAL BEDROOM AFTERNOON

Alice sits on her bed, in the dress that’s now too small and you can make out the slash marks. Jackie sits next to her.

ALICE: Thanks for holding it for me.

Jackie smiles weakly.

JACKIE: It’s the least I could do, I did ruin it.

Alice shrugs her shoulders.

ALICE: It doesn’t matter now does it?

There’s a knock on the door and the girls look up to see Sheila. Alice jumps up and walks to her. They hug. Sheila pats Alice’s long hair.

INT. SHEILA’S HOUSE EARLY EVENING

Alice follows Sheila up to her new bedroom. On the bed are the bags of craft supplies and a new very pretty dress.

SHEILA: Just make yourself at home.

She giggles.

SHEILA: Because, it is your home. I’ll be down in the kitchen getting dinner ready. Come when you’re all through up here.

Sheila leaves the room and Alice walks slowly around the room and touches the little, hand-made dolls and holds the dress up to her body, twirls and smiles. She sits on the bed and touches the bags of craft materials and leans onto her back. A tear falls while she smiles.

INT. KITCHEN EVENING

Alice sets the table for two and Sheila brings the food to the table. They sit. Hold hands and say grace.

INT. ALICE’S NEW BEDROOM NIGHT

Alice lies in bed and Sheila sits on the side, smoothing the covers over her. She stands and kisses Alice on the forehead.

SHEILA: I’m so glad you’re here. You’re a special, special young woman.

ALICE: Really?

Sheila stands.

SHEILA: Yes, really. Everything’s going to be okay now.

Sheila reaches the door, turns around, smiles.

SHEILA: Sleep well. I’ll get you up in the morning.

She turns the light out and is a shadow in the doorway.

ALICE: Sheila?

SHEILA: Yes?

ALICE: Thank you.

SHEILA: Hush. Now, rest. We have church in the morning.

Sheila shuts the door, leaving Alice in the dark.

ALICE: See you in the morning.
