SO I WAS TALKING TO MY BOYFRIEND ABOUT INNOCENCE AND STUFF AND I WAS JOKING AROUND
AND BEING ALL DRAMATIC SO BASICALLY THIS WENT DOWN
ME: YOU'RE PURE AND GOOD. AND YOU DON'T DESERVE ME. BECAUSE ONE DAY... ONE DAY
I'M GOING TO HURT YOU. AND YOU'LL LEAVE ME ALL ALONE IN THIS BIG EMPTY ROOM AGAIN.
HIM: NOOOO I WON'T LEAVE YOU DEFINITELY OK YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE IN THE BIG
EMPTY ROOM AGAIN
ME: YOU SAY THAT NOW... BUT... IN THE END... (She gazes out of the window at
the bare trees and the snow falling gently to the ground) THEY ALL LEAVE. EVERYONE I
PUT MY TRUST IN... AFTER I LOWER MY GUARD AROUND THEM AND JUST WHEN I START TO
CARE... THEY LEAVE. (She turns back, forcing a smile, though her eyes are cold and
sad) BUT WHEN YOU LEAVE, I'LL BE OKAY. I'M USED TO IT. I'VE ALWAYS FELT AN EERIE
COMFORT... BEING ALONE... IN THIS BIG, EMPTY ROOM... WHERE ALL I HEAR IS THE ECHOES
OF MY CRYING.
HIM: (He throws his arms around her) YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE IN THIS ROOM
AGAIN. NO LONGER WILL YOUR CRIES OF SADNESS ECHO THIS COLD, DEAD EMPTINESS. (It
sounds like they're in a fridge XD)
ME: OH MY GOD YOU JOINED IN. I DID NOT EXPECT THAT O M G.
HIM: YEAH WE SHOULD STOP
ME: I'M SORRY I HAVE TO DO THIS. (She sighs and hugs him back, pulling her
face to his ear. When she answers, her voice is a gentle whisper.) You know... I
didn't mention this before, because I didn't want to alarm you... But seeing as
you're the only one determined enough to stay, I feel you should know... I'm actually
a plate... Born and raised in China... And you? Your'e just some left over cheese
laying with me until it's your time to go... That's why we're allowed to be this
close... (She hugs him tighter) And this room... It's actually called a Fridge...
That's why it's so cold... Don't look at me like that, I'm sorry. (Just then, the
door opens and the light comes on. Suddenly they're both lifted and he is flying
through the air as if by magic.) GOODBYE, LOVE. I'LL NEVER FORGET YOU.
(Later on, Plate was almost drowned in the sink and Cheese was thrown out into the
rubbish bin. The end.)
