The confession of a murderer with multiple personality disorder.
This short scene was to be included in a past collaboration, but unfortunately it died before I had the chance to post it. So I've decided to post this as a short scene of its own.
(Connor is a killer with multiple personality disorder, stuck in an asylum; Nancy is a nurse at said asylum.)
NANCY: It's not good to keep everything inside.
CONNOR: But if I let her out, she'll get away.
CONNOR: My best friend. I loved her.
NANCY: Connor. She's dead. You killed her.
CONNOR: She's still here. I can't let her go.
NANCY: She's gone, Connor.
CONNOR, tears coming down his cheeks now: She's still here. I see her face and I feel her presence and I hear her laughter. She's here.
NANCY: When do you see her?
CONNOR: Every day. And every night. But she's coming less often.
NANCY: Is she here now?
NANCY: Why not?
CONNOR: You scare her. This whole place scares her away from me.
NANCY: Why don't you want to let her go? They say that if you love something, it's better to let it free.
A silence follows.
CONNOR, slowly: When they took me away, they wouldn't let me turn around to see her one last time before she was buried. They said she was gone. But I kept her with me so I could see her again. Pause. I can't forget that smile, or all I'll see is her blood on my hands.
