I Am Heaven Sent – Seth and Lia Arrive

Boys: 
<Pope looks toward the door, puts a smile on> Seth! You’re late. <walks over and gives him the guy hug>
Boys: 
<Seth gives him the guy hug back> Yeah, well.. you know. Traffic.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles> Traffic in this town? My ass. <smiles at Lia> Hey, you.
Girls: 
<Lia smiles, softly> Hello. How have you been?
Boys: 
<Pope shrugs, smiles again> Well, you know. Can’t complain. Work’s been good to me lately. I heard you guys moved here, too. *Why*?
Girls: 
<Lia smiles> To get a fresh start.


Boys: 
<Seth nods>
Boys: 
<Pope nods, looks at Seth> Well, you can’t get much of a start if you’re not working.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Pope> Damn. Don’t even let us in the door, man.
Boys: 
<Pope shrugs> I’ve never been good with… niceties.
Boys: 
<Van comes back down with Loch and the rest of the drinks>
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks over at Seth> Hey.
Boys: 
<Van gives Pope his drink, turns around and goes right back upstairs to make two more>
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Siobhan, smiles> Hey.
Boys: 
<Loch watches him go, walks over to Saige and hands her her drink>
Girls: 
<Saige takes the drink from Loch> Thank you. <smiles at Seth> Hey babe. What’s up?
Boys: 
<Seth smiles at Saige> Not much. You?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Same.. I’m writing a script.
Boys: 
<Seth arches a brow> Nice. I bet it’ll be good.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Lia> How’d the furniture shopping go?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I hope so… it’s Dark Erotica.
Girls: 
<Lia smiles> It was good.. we got most of the place furnished.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles> Right up your alley. Pope’s too.
Boys: 
<Loch heads up the stairs, to Siobhan> Hey, babe.. were we gonna do dinner first or check out those movies?

Girls: 
<Saige nods and smiles> It’s for the movie he’s directing.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks up at Loch> Dinner and then the movies I’m thinkn’.
Girls: 
<Siobhan heads upstairs to the kitchen>
Boys: 
<Loch nods> I’ll let Van know so he doesn’t make another trip down here just to turn around and go back upstairs again as he heads up the stairs with her>

Girls: 
<Siobhan nods, looks at the others> Come on up when you’re ready.
Boys: 
<Pope watches them go upstairs, looks back at Lia and Seth> So… it looks like we’re moving upstairs.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods> It does… <Saige smiles> Come on.. I can’t guarantee it’ll be good but it’s food. <Lia nods and squeezes Seth’s hand>
Boys: 
<Pope smiles at Saige> Come on. You really don’t think she can cook? Because she looks to me like she can do *anything*.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Lia, squeezes her hand back>
Boys: 
<Pope starts up the stairs> Speaking of Siobhan.. did you guys hear the good news about her and Van?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles at Pope> I’ve had her cooking.
Boys: 
<Seth follows, looks at Pope, arches a brow> What good news?
Girls: 
<The girls follow, Lia shakes her head> I haven’t heard any news.
Boys: 
<Pope stops and looks back at Lia and Seth, smiles> Oh.. well… they’re together now.
Girls: 
<Saige and Bonnie stop and watch Seth and Lia’s reaction>
Boys: 
<Seth stops when Pope does, looks at him for a second, looks at Lia>
Girls: 
<Lia stops when the others do, looks over at Seth, then back at Pope> That’s awesome.
Boys: 
<Seth arches a brow, looks at Pope> That’s pretty goddamn quick.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles again> Well, you know.. the heart wants what the heart wants, right?
Boys: 
<Pope takes Bonnie’s hand, heads back up the stairs>
Girls: 
<Lia looks at Seth, softly> About as quick as we were.
Boys: 
<Seth shakes his head> Yeah, I guess so. <looks at Lia> *We’re* married. They weren’t even a couple. <shakes his head again> You’re right. <starts back up the stairs>
Girls: 
<Bonnie goes with Pope and Saige follows with them>
Boys: 
<Pope whispers to Bonnie> If it’s so awesome, why didn’t she smile?
Girls: 
<Lia casts a glance at Seth>
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods> Exactly.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles, whispers> And Seth’s supposed to be the actor in the family. He didn’t even *try*.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods> Nope. In fact he was pretty blatant in his disapproval.
Boys: 
<Pope nods, whispers> He’s pretty blatant about everything though. Subtle has never been his forte.
Girls: 
<Saige blinks and hustles up to Van, whispers> All of this would also explain her not wanting to be touched when they fight.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Saige, arches a brow> Yeah, it would.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods>He is. <softly> I wonder though if there’s a fight brewing *now*.
Boys: 
<Van walks over when they reach the top of the stairs and hands Lia and Seth a Jack and Coke each, Pope looks at Seth> Let’s go talk privately before dinner and get it out of the way.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks over at Seth and Pope> You can use the sitting area in my bedroom if you want.
Boys: 
<Seth takes the drink from Van, looks at him for a second before looking at Pope, shakes his head> You’re wasting your time, but whatever. <takes a long sip of his drink>
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Siobhan, smiles> Thank you. I don’t know where that is.
Boys: 
<Seth heads past Pope> Come on. It’s this way.
Boys: 
<Pope watches him go> But he does. Never mind. <looks at Lia, smiles> I’ll make try and make it quick, but.. you should know my goal here is to talk him into doing this movie with us.
Girls: 
<Lia blinks at what Pope said, looks over at Van>
Girls: 
<Lia looks back at Pope> You can try.
Boys: 
<Van walks back over to Saige>
Boys: 
<Pope nods> And I plan to. What I want to know is, is it going to be a problem for you if I do?
Girls: 
<Lia shakes her head> No.. I told him he should go back to work.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles> Okay. Thank you. <looks at Bonnie> Come on. You know I need you when I negotiate.
Girls: 
<Bonnie smiles> Yes you do.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles, takes her hand and heads to the sitting area>
Boys: 
<Van smiles at Saige> You know.. for someone who puts bologna and peanut butter on her sandwiches, you’re awfully hard on Siobhan’s cooking.
Girls: 
<Lia walks over to Siobhan who’s putting dishes and food out> May I help do anything. <Siobhan shakes her head> No thanks.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles at Van> Where do you think I learned that from.
Boys: 
<Loch leans against the bar> Hey.. bologna and peanut butter isn’t as bad as it sounds. Especially when you chase it with a bottle of Jack.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Loch> I’ll have to take your word for that.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Saige> He drinks a lot of Jack, doesn’t he?
Boys: 
<Loch walks over and stands behind Saige, putting his arms around her waist, smiles at her>
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Jack is very good on your cereal.. <raises her head to smile at Loch> I’m trying to get him to drink the Gentlemen Jack though.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Saige> I’ll drink whatever I have to if it means I don’t have to actually *taste* anything.
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> I can stop making your sandwiches and order in from now on.
Boys: 
<Loch leans down and kisses her, smiles again> You can do whatever you want as long as you’re dessert.
Girls: 
<Saige kisses him back> Always.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Thank god I never let you cook me dinner. <walks over and takes a seat on the couch with his drink>
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> He just wouldn’t appreciate bologna boats.
