The Stalker’s Stalker

EXT. STREET – DAY

A young man, BRAD (22), walks down a busy city street, past shop and fast food fronts. On the other side of the road creeps VANESSA (22). She has her eyes fixed on Brad and hides behind various items as she follows him, very stalker-esx.

CAMERON
Hey Ness.

Cameron (23) wearing an orange T-shirt and shorts stands behind Vanessa. He eats an ice cream cone.

VANESSA
Dammit Cameron! You scared the crap out of me.

CAMERON
Oh, sorry. Why are you stalking Brad?

VANESSA
What? I’m not, that’s not what I’m doing! Shut up.

CAMERON
Are you sure? Because that’s what it looks like.

VANESSA
Yes. I’m not stalking him, I’m just…watching him…while following him.

CAMERON
You realise that’s what stalkers do right?

VANESSA
Alright, fine. I am stalking him. He’s up to something.

CAMERON
What?

VANESSA
I don’t know, but he was acting very suspicious, and he lied about where he was going.

CAMERON
Okay cool. Can I stalk him with you too?

VANESSA
What? No. Go away.

CAMERON
Oh come on, I’ve got nothing to do.

VANESSA
No.

CAMERON
Why not?

VANESSA
Well you’re wearing a bright orange T-shirt for one.

CAMERON
It’s tangerine. I call it spicy tangerine. Plus I think I’ll be helpful.

VANESSA
Why?

CAMERON
It just seems to have a spicyness about it.

VANESSA
No, not the T-shirt. Why will you be helpful?

CAMERON
Well I’m pretty good at stalking.

VANESSA
I doubt that.

CAMERON
Well I was watching you watch Brad without you knowing. I stalked the stalker as it were. I guess that makes me like Brad’s grandstalker.

VANESSA
I swear I only understand about half of what you say.

CAMERON
Plus, what if we need to split up, or he goes into the men’s room or something? It’ll be handy to have a second set of eyes on the job.

VANESSA
Fine, just don’t distract me.

CAMERON
Okay. Hey, do you want some ice-cream?

Cameron offers out his ice cream cone, which has started to melt onto his hand. Vanessa looks at it in disgust.

VANESSA
Oh God, I regret this already.

CAMERON
He’s going around the corner!

Over the other side of the street Brad disappears around a corner. Vanessa and Cameron quickly run across the street after him, Cameron trying to eat the ice cream as he goes.
