Part 2Mature

 

THIS IS THE CONTINUATION OF

Dark Shadows And Dangerous Dreams

As you may remember we left Ariel at the graveside of Sam. Shall we see what happens next

Ok then! Lets go. Ready??

ACT 1 THE AWAKENING

SCENE SETTING---

(The curtains open- Ariel is kneeling at the grave. It's dark ( stage lights are dim). After she finished

her singing she hears a voice from behind her call her name, she turns to look behind her- she can

see a dark shape near a tombstone. The full moon is rising from behind the tree's, there is a howling

of an owl in the distance. There are strange noises and a mist rolls in across the ground that touches

her feet.)

ARIEL- “ Oh my god! Oh my god! who? Who are you?”

(TERROR FALLS OVER HER BODY AS SHE SHAKE'S FROM WITHIN. HER HEART STARTS TO BEAT

FAST, HER EYE'S OPEN WIDE WITH FEAR AND WITH NERVICENESS IN HER VOICE, AGAIN SHE

ASK'S.)

ARIEL- “Who are you?”

( THE DARK FIGURE MOVE'S CLOSER TO HER AND TRIES TO REACH FOR HER.)

DARK SHADOW- “ Take my hand.”

(ARIEL SO FRIGHTEN AND PETRIFIED TO MOVE.)

ARIEL- “NO- who are you?

DARK SHADOW- “PLEASE! Take my hand, don't be scared. Please take my hand')

(IT HOLDS IT'S HAND OUT TOWARDS HER.)

(ARIEL SHAKING IN FEAR AGAIN SAY'S.)

ARIEL- “ NO” I can't. I can't.”

(THE DARK SHADOW STEPS INTO THE MOONLIGHT WHERE THE LIGHT HIT'S IT'S FACE AND SHE

CAN SEE.)

ARIEL- “ SAM, SAM, SAM.”

( SHE RUN'S INTO HIS ARMS, HOLDING HIM SO TIGHT AND WITH TEARS FILLING HER EYE'S AND

RUNNING DOWN HER FACE.)

ARIEL- “ Oh my god, I thought that you were dead, that's what the girl told me. (LOOKING AT

HIM) What happened?

Sam what happened? I thought that you were gone.”

(LOOKING INTO HIS EYE'S.)

ARIEL- “Sam my body was in so much pain. It felt like my heart was torn out from within my chest

and I could see it beating before me. I felt like I was dying, I was so cold, so cold Sam.”

(SHE BEGINS TO CRY, HOLDING HIM. HE TAKES HER TO A BENCH TO SIT DOWN. HE IS SO HAPPY

TO BE ABLE TO TOUCH HER WARM BODY AGAIN. HE FEELS THE ELECTRICITY RUNNING

THROUGH HIS VEINS. IT FEELS LIKE THEY WERE APART FOR YEARS AS HE LOOKS INTO HER

EYE'S. HE BEGINS TO SING—HEAVEN

CAN WAIT-- TAKEN FROM THE BAT OUT OF HELL ALBUM. HOLDING HER HANDS AND LOOKING

AT HER.)

SAM- Heaven can wait

And a band of angel's wrapped up in my heart

Will take me through the lonely night

Through the cold of the day

And I know

I know

Heaven can wait

And the God's come down here just to sing for me

And the melody's gonna make me fly

Without pain

Without fear

(SAM TOUCHES HER FACE.)

Give me all of your dreams

And let me go along on your way

Give me all your prayers to sing

And I'll turn the night into the skylight of day

(SAM LOOKS AT HER SO LOVINGLY.)

I got a taste of paradise

I'm never gonna let it slip away

I got a taste of paradise

It's all I really need to make me stay

Just like a child again

Heaven can wait

And all I got is time until the end of time

I won't look back

I won't look back

Let the alters shine

(SAM LOOKS AROUND THEN BACK AT HER.)

And I know that I've been released

But I don't know to where

And nobody's gonna tell me now

And I don't really care

No No No

I got a taste of paradise

That's all I really need to make me stay

I got a taste of paradise

If I had it any sooner you know

You know I never would have run away

From my home

Heaven can wait

And all I got is time until the end of time

I won't look back

I won't look back

Let the alter shine

Heaven can wait

Heaven can wait

I won't look back

I won't look back

Let the alter shine

Let the alter shine

(SAM KISSES HER, A WARM GENTLE KISS--- A KISS OF DREAMS, OH WOW Oooo.)

(ARIEL LOOKS AT HIM WITH ALL HER FEELINGS AND EMOTION'S RUNNING THROUGH HER .

SHE IS HAPPY BUT ANGRY AND VERY HURT. EVERYTHING IS GOING EVERWHERE AND HER SKIN

IS THE ONLY THING THAT'S

KEEPING IT IN. SHE LOOKS AT HIM AND STARTS TO SING-- IT'S ALL COMING BACK TO ME NOW--

TAKEN FROM THE –PANDORA'S BOX ALBUM---)

ARIEL- There were night's when the wind was so cold

That my body froze in bed

If I just listened to it

Right outside the window

There were day's when the sun was so cruel

That all the tears turned to dust

And I just knew my eye's were

Drying up forever

(ARIEL LOOKS AT SAM.)

I finished crying at the instant that you left

But I can't remember where or when or how

And I banished every memory you and I have ever made

(LOOKING AT SAM WITH PAIN BUT LOVE IN HER EYE”S FOR HIM.)

But when you touch me like this

And when you hold me like that

I just have to admit

That it's all coming back to me

(TOUCHING SAMS FACE AND RUNNING HER FINGERS THROUGH HIS HAIR.)

When I touch you like this

And I hold you like that

It's so hard to believe but

It's all coming back to me

It's all coming back

It's all coming back to me now

There were moments of gold

And there were flashes of light

There were things I'd never do again

But then they always seemed right

There were nights of sacred pleasure

It was more than any laws allow!

Baby, Baby

(SHE LOOKS DEEPLY INTO HIS SOUL THROUGH HIS EYE”S.)

If I kiss you like this

And if you whisper like that

It was lost long ago

But it's all coming back to me

If you want me like this

And if you need me like that

It was dead long ago

But it's all coming back to me

It's so hard to resist

And it's all coming back to me now

I can barely recall

But it's all coming back to me now

(ARIEL LOOKS AT HIM WITH DISAPPIONTMENT)

There were those empty threats and hollow lies

And whenever you tried to hurt me

I just hurt you even worse

And so much deeper

( SHAKING HER HEAD AND LOOKING DOWN.)

There were hours that went on for days

When, alone at last,we'd count up all the chances

That were lost to us

Forever

(THINKING OF THE GIRL.)

But you were history with the slamming of the door

And I made myself so strong again somehow

And I never wasted any of my time on you since then

(SHE TOUCHES HIS HAND.)

But if I touch you like this

And if you kiss me like that

It was so long ago

But it's all coming back to me

If you touch me like this

And if you kiss me like that

It was gone with the wind

But it's all coming back to me

It's all coming back

It's all coming back to me now

There were moments of gold

There were flashes of light

There were things we'd never do again

But then they always seemed right

There were night's of endless pleasure

It was all your laws allow!

(SHE RESTS HER HEAD ON HIS CHEST)

BABY, baby, baby

(LOOKING UP AT HIM.)

When you touch me like this

And when you hold me like that

It was gone with the wind

But it's all coming back to me

When you see me like this

And when I see you like that

Then we see what we want to see

All coming back to me-

The flesh and the fantasies

All coming back to me

I can barely recall

But it's all coming back to me now!

(SHE HOLDS HIS HANDS.)

If you forgive me all this

If I forgive you all that

We forgive and forget

And it's all coming back to me

When you see me like this

And when I see you like that

We see just what we want to see

All coming back to me

The flesh and the fantasies

All coming back to me

I can barely recall but it's all coming back to me now...

And when you kiss me like this

When you hold me like that

And if I touch you like this

And if we...........

(SHE LEANS OVER AND GIVE'S HIM THE KISS THAT HE'S BEEN WAITING FOR. OH! THE TOUCH

OF HER WARM MOIST LIPS, OH! AND THE WARMTH FLOWING FROM HER BODY AS SHE WRAPS

HERSELF AROUND HIS

BODY. OH WOW DO YOU FEEL THAT? HE CAN FEEL HER HEARTBEAT AGAINST HIS CHEST. OH

BOY! OH MAN HE CAN FEEL THE MAGIC THROUGH HER AGAIN AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT HE

LONGED FOR. SHE TAKES HIS BREATH AWAY. HE DOESN'T WANT TO LET HER GO. HE CAN'T

BREATH FOR A MOMENT- HE WAN'TS TO FREEZE IT IN TIME, HOLD IT FOREVER . SHE BREAKS

AWAY FROM HIM AND LOOKS AT HIM WITH QUESTIONS)

ARIEL- “Oh Sam , why did you do that to me?”

SAM- “ I'm sorry, but I had to fake my death.”

ARIEL- “ Why Sam?”

SAM- “ They caught up with me.”

ARIEL- “Who? Who caught up with you?” (PUZZLED)

SAM- “ It's a long story.” (SHAKING HIS HEAD AND LOOKING AT THE GROUND) Ariel I must

tell you what I am,

and I don't want you to be scared ok.”

( ARIEL NODS HER HEAD- SAM TAKES A DEEP BREATH.)

SAM- “ I'm not what I seem to be.”

ARIEL- “What?”

SAM- “ Let me finish mmmm! How can I put this? (RUNS HIS FINGERS THROUGH HIS HAIR)

You know how I

said to you that I came a long way for you.”

ARIEL- “ Yes.”

SAM- “Ummm- I come from a dark place, a place of shadows. Mmmm Ariel I don't know how to

say this. Shit! I

was not flesh. I was not human.”

(ARIEL PUSHES HIM AWAY AND GETS UP BUT SAM GRABS HER)

SAM- “ Wait! wait, please- listen.”

( HE SITS HER BACK DOWN AND STARTS TO SING-- ROCK AND ROLL DREAMS COME THROUGHTAKEN

FROM – THE BAD FOR GOOD- ALBUM-)

SAM- You can't run away forever

But there's nothing wrong with

Getting a good head start

You wanna shut out the night

You wanna shut down the sun

You want to shut away

The pieces of a broken heart

Think of how we'll lay down together

We'd be listening to the radio

So loud and so strong

Every golden nugget coming

Like a gift of the gods

Someone must of blessed us

When he gave us those songs

(SAM LOOKS AT HER LOVINGLY AND RUNS HIS FINGERS DOWN HER FACE)

I treasure your love

I never want to lose it

You've been through the fires of hell

And I know you've got the ashes to prove it

I treasure your love

I want to show you how to use it

You've been through a lot of pain in the dirt

And I know you've got the scars to prove it

Remember everything that I told you

And I'm telling you again that it's true

When you're alone and afraid

And you're completely amazed

To find there's nothing anybody can do

Keep on believing

And you'll discover baby

There's always something magic

There's always something new

And when you really, really need it the most

That's when Rock and Roll Dreams

Come through for you

(SAM TAKE”S HER HAND AND TOUCHES HER CHEEK WITH THE OTHER HAND THEN RUNS HIS

FINGERS

DOWN HER FACE SO TENDERLY.)

I treasure your love

I never want to lose it

You've been through the fires of hell

And I know you've got the ashes to prove it

I treasure your love

I want to show you how to use it

You've been through a lot of pain in the dirt

And I know you've got the scars to prove it

(LOOKING INTO HER PASSIONATE EYE”S)

Remember everything that I told you

And I'm telling you again that it's true

You're never alone cause you can put on the phones

And let the drummer tell your heart what to do

Keep on believing

And you'll discover baby

There's always something magic

There's always something new

And when you really, really need it the most

That's when Rock and Roll Dreams

Come through

The beat is always new

And when you really, really need it the most

That's when Rock and Roll Dreams

Come through

SAM- “ Can't you see that I love you. I came across darkness for you, I fell in love with the

reflection of you.”

ARIEL- “ What?”

SAM- “I came for you. I transformed for you and now they want to—Oh mmm. Ariel I'm risking

my life to be with

you. That girl you seen me with, she wanted to help us, she is dead now. Please Ariel,

don't leave me,

don't send me back into the darkness.”

ARIEL- “Oh my god-Sam.”

SAM- “ Don't leave me – Do you trust me?”

 

ARIEL- “Yes, yes. Sam I love you, I don't want to lose you again. I'd never felt such heartache and

pain. I don't

care what you are, as long as we are together. Oh Sam what are we going to do?”

SAM- “ We must run and we gotta move fast.

The End
