SCENE 2: David Joyce (The Beast) is hiding behind a tree with a wolf mask on)
BEAST:
I stabbed myself in the leg!
MARY:
You idiot, do you want me to have a look?
BEAST:
No stay back both of you, especially you Gerald, you shitty bastard.
GERALD:
I couldn’t help shitting myself. You’re the one threatening us with a bloody knife.
MARY:
Ok. This has gone far enough! David Joyce, you can stop right now and give yourself up to the police or you can bleed to death. Which is it to be?
BEAST:
I don’t care anymore. When I kill you both I will go on the rampage and make a bloody reputation for myself that will never be forgotten.
MARY:
You’ve already done that with streaking across the catholic girl’s school playing field two years ago!
BEAST:
I just wanted to make a point that I wouldn’t be pushed around and that I had the balls.
GERALD:
Oh you had the balls all right but it was the other bit you were short of.
BEAST:
That does it, you will be tortured for that!
MARY:
David, please try to understand that you are sick in the head. How did you manage to convince the authorities to let you out of the asylum early?
BEAST:
It wasn’t early, I did my time.
MARY:
Really?
BEAST:
Do you know the people in there didn’t even acknowledge me? Do you know why? Because I can make myself invisible!
GERALD:
Come to think of it I never really noticed you till now.
BEAST:
Well, I can notice you. You shitty arsed bastard.
MARY:
Gerald can you please go and clean yourself up?
BEAST:
No he stays as he is. He was a shitty arse in life and he will be one in death.
GERALD:
You unfeeling bastard.
BEAST:
And who is to blame for that?
MARY:
Well I suppose you are if you can make yourself invisible?
BEAST:
I can’t help it, I want to be noticed but with my gift of invisibility I don’t realize that sometimes I am invisible. Do you know something, I haven’t told anyone this but I am thinking of changing my name from the Beast to the Shadow!
MARY:
David, honey, please give it up, I am tired and hungry and my son will be coming along shortly.
BEAST:
He is another who will be slaughtered. I can’t forget how he humiliated me in the school library.
MARY:
You were walking about in the nude. What was he supposed to do?
BEAST:
He wrapped duct tape around my genitals, I couldn’t piss right for days! All he had to do was realize I was invisible.
GERALD: (Beginning to laugh)
BEAST:
Right that does it, you smelly bastard.
MARY:
David please take the wolf mask off and come out. You look like werewolf gone wrong.
BEAST:
I’ll show you all when I turn into the shadow. I will be able to go anywhere and do anything.
Has anyone got a handkerchief, I’m still bleeding?
MARY:
I can hear a car coming! Thank God. (Station wagon pulls up)
MARY:
Can you help us we are trying to get away from a madman?
STRANGER:
What, Where?
MARY:
He’s was over there behind the tree with a wolf mask on.
BEAST: (Jumps into the truck and grabs a twelve bore pump action shotgun)
OK, now I have something that will help me in my crusade to be noticed.
STRANGER:
Who the hell are you?
BEAST:
I’m known as the beast, but I will soon be the shadow.
STRANGER:
Who the hell is this nutcase?
MARY:
Please don’t provoke him, he has a gun.
STRANGER:
Listen here bird-brain, if you don’t put my gun back I will beat you over the head with it.
BEAST:
I am the beast and I will blow you away.
STRANGER:
I would like to see you try. There’s no ammo in it.
BEAST: (Trying to cock the weapon)
To hell with it.
STRANGER:
What the hell is that smell?
MARY:
Gerald over there had an accident.
STRANGER : (Looking at Gerald with contempt)
GERALD:
I couldn’t help it, blame that bastard over there, he tried to kill us.
STRANGER:
He doesn’t look like he could kill a mouse to me.
MARY:
Let’s all calm down. We can now get back to town in the truck.
BEAST: (Sticks his knife into the tires of the truck)
STRANGER:
You bloody little arse wipe!
BEAST:
Now try to get away. You are all doomed Ha. (Dave steps back onto a snake which bites him)
Bloody bastards, I’ve been bitten!
STRANGER:
Serves you right you little shit bag.
GERALD:
I’ve just crapped my pants again!
MARY:
God help us!
