Rattlin’ the Cage Inside Me – You Gotta Blame Someone

Boys:
Genja arrives in a rented car and pulls up to the camper, gets out, followed by Aiden as Samuel comes out of the camper, Aiden walks over to Samuel> Seriously, man? You got shot in *Solitude*?
Boys:
Why do you sound like that surprises you? baggie Aiden hands him, Aiden shakes his head> Take one. I got some antibiotics in there from Dr. T., too.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head> I’m surprised she didn’t come with you.
Girls:
<Ava and Kendra climb out of the Car as Bree follows Samuel out of the camper, Bree smiles at Aiden>
Boys:
<Aiden smiles> Who says she didn’t?
Boys:
<Genja smiles> You think we’d trust you to just any quack?
Girls:
<Jenna pulls up behind the other car, climbs out with her bag in hand> Sorry. It took me a few to Get my new portable Ex ray, and ultrasound machines in the car.


Boys:
It’s an awful long way to come for a house call, darlin’.
Boys:
<Genja smiles> You’re lucky she charges by the hour and not the mileage.
Girls:
Not for you guys.Genja, Grins> I don’t charge you at all.
Boys:
<Genja smiles at Jenna> You’d make a mint off us if you did, though.
Girls:
<Jenna laughs> I make a mint off you anyway.. all the bullets I remove from the people you shoot.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Samuel> So where is this cunt, anyway?
Girls:
I was worried about you.
Boys:
Under the tarp. Been there since.. well, since we called Genja.
Boys:
Why you worried? I got Bree lookin’ out for me.
Girls:
<Ava steps back and looks at him, Kendra smiles> You can breathe Ava.. he’s walking so it’s not *too* bad.
Girls:
<Ava smiles> I know.. still. <shrugs> I’m allowed to.
Girls:
<Bree growls> She shot him for asking a fucking *question*.
Boys:
<Genja smiles> Let Jenna do her job. Well, well. *This* is an interesting development.
Girls:
<Dee mumbles behind the tape>
Boys:
She shot me because she was plannin’ on doin’ it anyway. She just didn’t *like* the question.
Girls:
<Jenna looks at Samuel> Let’s get you fixed up. I’m sure Bree did a good job but you’re bleeding through the bandage.
Boys:
<Genja smiles at Dee> Monsters we are, lest monsters we become. They say one should be careful that they don’t become that which they fear, hunt, etc. You seem to have failed in that regard.
Boys:
<Samuel nods to Jenna> My aunt… <furrows his brow>.. stepmother.. is a nurse. They’re a couple of properties over if you need her.
Girls:
<Bree snarls> *Whore*. <looks at Aiden> I’m sure she liked the earful Samuel gave her even less.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Bree> Oh, I don’t doubt it.
Girls:
<Jenna nods> All right. Would you feel more comfortable with her here?

Boys:
You act like I never been shot before. You gonna give me a teddy bear to hold onto, too?
Girls:
<Jenna smiles> I figured you’d want to hold on to Bree.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles again, nods, looks at Bree> She’ll do.
Girls:
Oh.. ouch.. won’t be dancing on those knees again.
Girls:
<Jenna nods> Is there some place we can go with better lighting and maybe a table?
Boys:
<Genja looks at Kendra, smiles> That’s optimistic.
Boys:
Inside. C’mon.
Girls:
Baby.. I’m usually a glass half full kind of person. Genja> Personally, I think the squirming’s going to be fun to watch.
Girls:
<Jenna goes with Samuel>
Girls:
<Bree goes too>
Boys:
<Genja smiles more broadly> Oh, I love watching them squirm. But I like it when they cry even more.
Girls:
<Kendra arches her brow> Oh. I can make her cry.
Boys:
<Aiden takes Ava’s hand, walks over to the truck> So.. anyone notice the ring on Bree’s finger?
Girls:
<Ava smiles> I did. <Kendra nods and looks over at Aiden> It’s gorgeous… how could you not?
Boys:
<Genja nods to Aiden> And I’m sure we’ll hear all about it after the initial concern over our bulletproof friend there is over.. My question is.. what kind of *idiot* shoots *Samuel* and *doesn’t* shoot to kill?
Boys:
The same kinda idiot that finds herself hogtied in the back of a truck for hours after Bree, because I’d bet money it was Bree, shoots her in the goddamn knees.
Girls:
The kind of idiot that too full of herself and thinks she’s invincible. Boys:
<Genja looks over at Kendra, smiles>
Boys:
They really should’ve gotten together sooner.
Girls:
<Ava watches smiling> Careful Kendra.. you might slice her face. <Kendra looks over at Ava> and? It’s not like she’s going to need it anymore.
Girls:
okay there is that.
Boys:
<Genja pulls out a cigarette and lights it, leans back against the truck, shakes his head> Crazy bitch.
Boys:
Genja> So.. how is it you’ve never had any psychotic women stalk *you*?
Girls:
Genja> You talking about me?
Boys:
<Genja shrugs> Because I don’t get involved with them. Actually, I was, yes.
Girls:
<Kendra smiles> Good. <Slices the tape on Dee’s cheek, then unceremoniously rips it off, Ava winces> Oh.. that had to hurt.
Boys:
<Genja watches as he smokes his cigarette>
Boys:
<Aiden smiles> Sucks.
Girls:
The brain can only feel pain in one area of the body at a time. Depends on which hurt worse. The tape oryelps when Kendra hits her knee, Dee grind out> *Bitch*.
Boys:
<Genja arches a brow, to Dee> You don’t really think she’ll let anyone but me get away with calling her that, do you?
Girls:
I’d be very careful what I said right now if I were you. It could mean the difference between simple pain and excruciating agony.
Boys:
I’m gonna go check on Samuel. Don’t let me miss the good shit. <lets go of Ava’s hand and goes inside as Jenna’s finishing the exam> How’s he look?
Girls:
Through and through. Missed all the major points. Everything looks good.
Girls:
<Bree watches, making mental notes for the next time>
Girls:
<Jenna nods> Where she fucked up?
Boys:
<Aiden nods> Good to know. And payback’s a bitch.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Aiden> It’s gonna be.
Boys:
If she’d just killed me outright, she coulda gotten the drop on Bree. But as it was, she wasn’t expectin’ Bree to come back.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> She got cocky and I got the drop on her.
Girls:
<Jenna nods> I see.
Boys:
And she shot me without a silencer, not realizin’ my sister in law lives close enough to hear it.
Girls:
<Bree shakes her head> She’s a fucking idiot cum funnel.
Boys:
<Samuel laughs> Brianna!
Boys:
<Aiden laughs> Ah, hell. <smiles> Gets creative when she’s pissed, don’t she?
Boys:
You shoulda heard her, earlier.
Girls:
<Bree looks over at Samuel, blinks> Sorry.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles at Bree> It hurts to laugh, baby girl.
Girls:
<Bree softly> I’m sorry.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head, takes her hand and pulls her over, wraps an arm around her waist>
Girls:
<Bree moves close to him> It just pisses me off. *Royally* that she thought she could *do* this.. and if I hadn’t come back when I did.. who *knows*. And I don’t like it.
Boys:
<Samuel nods, rubs his hand over her ass> I know. But you did, so.. fuck her.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Bree> So.. what’s the deal with that ring, babe? That mean what I think it does?
Girls:
<Bree beams at Aiden and nods> Depends on what you think it means.
Boys:
I *think* it means there’s gonna be another trip to the JP in the near future.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> That’s exactly what it means.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Yes it does.
Boys:
Wow. Fuck me standing. Genja and Kendra> So, yeah. That’s not just a pretty decoration. They’re engaged.
Boys:
<Genja arches a brow> Damn.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles broadly> I know, right?
Girls:
<Ava grins> Cool.
Girls:
<Kendra smiles> Nice.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Ava, smiles> So why isn’t your phone out yet?
Boys:
<Genja looks at Ava> Seriously. Get on it, gossip queen.
Girls:
<Ava smiles pulls out her phone and dumps her contacts telling them about Samuel and Bree, including Silver and Rad and Morose>
Boys:
<Aiden shakes his head, walks back over to Ava> Now I *know* Rad’s Zombie Apocalypse is coming.
Girls:
<Kendra smiles> Because Samuel’s getting married?
Boys:
<Aiden smiles> Because the thought even crossed his mind.
Boys:
<Genja smiles at Aiden> We thought the same thing when *you* gave Ava a ring.
Girls:
<Kendra nods and laughs> And look at how that’s working.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles> Yeah, well.. <looks at Ava> What can ya do?
Girls:
The apocalypse will come when it happens again for Genja.
Boys:
<Genja laughs> Oh, please. It’s not exactly unbelievable that *I’ll* do it again.
Girls:
<Ava smiles> No.. it’s not.. it’s just it’ll be a *long* time
Boys:
<Genja shakes his head, still smiling> When have I ever said anything to give you that impression? I’m not soured on the idea. At.all.
Girls:
Genja> Not soured. Cautious.
Boys:
<Genja smiles> Statistics show that married men live longer. I plan to live forever.
Girls:
<Kendra laughs> Baby, you’re gonna live forever because Hell doesn’t want you taking over.

Boys:
<Genja looks at Kendra, smiles> Well.. then there’s that, too, but I like to hedge my bets.
Girls:
<Kendra laughs> Hedge away baby.
Boys:
<Samuel comes out of the camper once Jenna’s done with him, takes a drag off his cigarette>
Girls:
<Bree comes out with him while Jenna cleans up>
