So I’d Know Yesterday Was Over – Van Confesses, Lia Confronts Seth

Boys: 
<Van stops in front of the cabin and knocks>
Girls: 
<Saige opens the door, smiles> Hey.
Boys: 
<Van looks at her> Hey. You’re awake.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> Yeah.. I’m not sure I went back to sleep.
Girls: 
<Saige opens the door wider> Come on in.
Boys: 
<Van nods> I tried, but I didn’t manage it. I did, however, get Ethan back for fucking with the water while I was in the shower. <steps inside>
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Yeah.. tell.
Boys: 
<Van looks at her, smiles> Outted him to Sang on his feelings for her. <walks further in and turns back to her> When I left, all you could hear in my wake was a deafening silence.
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> That’s great. Evil Van.
Boys: 
<Van smiles, nods> Yeah. Apparently, I’ve been in rare form lately. <looks at her> I need to talk to you.
Girls: 
<Saige blinks> Okay.. nothing good ever starts that way.
Boys: 
<Van nods> And I’m afraid this isn’t exactly the exception to the rule.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him and goes to the couch> All right. <sits> Talk to me.
Boys: 
<Van walks over and sits on the couch next to her, looks at her> Girls night.. Seth and I took Siobhan to the warehouse with us. <takes a breath> We slept with her, Saige.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him, stands, then sits back down> Why?
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> She was *so* wrecked, Saige. And she told us something about that first porn movie she did that I can’t repeat and all I wanted to do was make it better. <looks at her> It was practically a horror story, but it explained *so* much about why she’s been the way she has.
Boys: 
<Van looks at her> And no, that’s not an excuse. I’m not making excuses.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> I know it’s not. <shakes her head, walks to the window, quietly> What do you want to do?
Boys: 
<Van watches her> There’s more, Saige. We also agreed to do a movie. It’d be my last time in front of the camera, but I know I told you I wasn’t going to do that anymore.
Boys: 
<Van gets up and walks over to the window, stands next to her, looks at her> It’s not up to me what we do here. It’s up to you.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> A movie? Seriously.
Boys: 
<Van nods> Yes. The three of us.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> Why Van? Why would you agree to that?
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> Because it’s the movie that’s going to launch the company, Saige.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> Okay.. I can understand that. So let me ask you *this*. Is *this* the last movie?
Boys: 
<Van looks at her> Yes.
Girls: 
<Saige quietly> And are you done comforting Siobhan?

Boys: 
<Van nods> Yes.
Girls: 
<Saige looks back out the window> Van.. do you want *us* to work?
Boys: 
<Van looks at her> If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be standing here telling you this.
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> All right.
Boys: 
<Van leans his head against the window, watching her> Why are you shaking your head?
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> Because karma’s a bitch.
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> Baby, this isn’t karma. <looks at her> Tell me what you need from me to make this work.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> I don’t know. <turns her back on the window and leans against it> What are you willing to do?
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> Whatever it takes.
Girls: 
<Saige looks away from him> I’m not the girl that needs you to do something… I’m not the one that needs proof.
Boys: 
<Van looks at her> Then what *do* you need?
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> I don’t need anything.
Boys: 
<Van arches a brow> So.. that’s it?
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> You trusted me enough to tell me.. I can trust you enough to take your word. <quietly> And just because I’m not a trembling mass of incoherence doesn’t mean I’m not pissed and hurt.. I am. <turns and walks over to the couch, sits and lights a cigarette> Because for the first time ever since I’ve known you… I feel betrayed. But those feelings aren’t going to help us, Van.
Boys: 
<Van watches her walk away> No, but talking about them will.
Boys: 
<Van walks over to her, crouches in front of her, puts his hands on her knees, looks at her> I know you’re pissed and hurt and I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt you.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> I know you didn’t. <clenches her jaw>
Boys: 
<Van watches her, quietly> Do you want me to leave?
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> No. I don’t. What I want to do is punch her in the face.
Girls: 
<Saige sighs> Which I know is completely irrational because I *should* want to punch you.
Boys: 
<Van nods> Yeah. You probably should.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> It is Karma for what I did to Sang and Loch.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Saige> Look.. I don’t know what to say right now.
Girls: 
<Saige quietly> You want us to work… we’ll work.
Boys: 
<Van nods, leans in and kisses her lightly>
Girls: 
<Saige kisses him back, leaning into it, pulls back and smiles ruefully> You want to hear irony.
Boys: 
<Van looks at her> What, baby?
Girls: 
<Saige shrugs> I thought I’d be the one where you are.
Boys: 
<Van looks at her curiously> What do you mean?
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> I just never thought you’d … be the one to do that. I thought It’d be me. You know? I’m the one with the history.
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> Saige.. *I* never thought either of us would do it.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> I know you needed to comfort her…
Boys: 
<Van looks at her> Right now, the only one I want to comfort is you.
Girls: 
<Saige quietly> Then do it. Because I don’t know right now what I need.
Boys: 
<Van stands, takes her hand and pulls her to her feet>
Girls: 
<Saige stands, and looks at him>
Boys: 
<Van holds the hand he used to pull her up, slides his free hand into the hair at the side of her face, leans in and kisses her again>
Girls: 
<Saige kisses him back, her free hand resting on his waist>
Boys: 
<Van lets go of her hand, slips his arms around her, deepening the kiss>
Girls: 
<Saige’s arms move around her hands spread on his back>
Boys: 
<Van breaks the kiss after a couple of seconds, presses his forehead to hers, looks at her, quietly> I love you.
Girls: 
<Saige holds his look> I love you, too.
Boys: 
<Van lets her go, takes her hand and leads her to the bedroom>
Girls: 
<Saige goes with him>
