Good Girls Don’t, But I Do

Boys:
<Samuel stands at the front desk of the police station chatting up the officer while he waits on a reciept and Aubrey’s release>
Girls:
<Aubrey walks through the door with a guard who has a death grip on her upper arm, looking rougher than usual, and not a little beat, the guard looks at Samuel> She’s all yours. Put a leash on her she’s rabid. Bitch bit me. <Aubrey sneers at the guard> Next time I’ll do more than that you try to fuck with me again, Bobby. <jerks her arm out of his grasp>
Boys:
<Samuel takes the paperwork from the guy at the desk, smiles that smile> Oh, she usually is on a leash. Turned my back and she slipped it. Cagey little thing that she is. C’mon, darlin’. Before they decide you *do* need to see a judge.
Girls:
<Aubrey looks at Samuel> What are you doin’ here, Samuel? <Walks over and signs for her things, grabs them when the guard hands them to her and pops a cigarette out of the pack, heads for the door and lights it as she pushes through them>
Boys:
<Samuel follows her after saying goodbye to the cop he was talking to, shakes his head when they get outside> Better question is what are *you* doin’ here, but seein’ as how I saw the paperwork, I guess we don’t really have to talk about that. <walks over and unlocks the passenger door of the truck, opens it> Get inn already so we can get the hell outta here. Police stations aren’t exactly my favorite places.
Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> Mine either really. So how’d you find out where I was?
Boys:
<Samuel looks at her> They called me. Told me they had one of our girls down here and she wasn’t takin’ her phone call.
Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> Didn’t have no one to call.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> Apparently, you did and just didn’t know it. Now, get in the truck.
Girls:
<Aubrey climbs in, hitting her cigarette hard>
Boys:
<Samuel closes the door, walks around the other side, gets in and starts the truck, pulls out of the station and heads toward the ranch> Figured they might not appreciate the nearly naked women on the Impala. <looks at her> Then again, I guess they wouldn’t’ve been all that surprised either.

Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> They’d’ve gawked at them like they do every other woman they see.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Probably. <looks over at her> So you wanna talk about it?
Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> Nothin’ to talk about. Once a slut always a slut. Went home. Smoked some drank some.. needed some air and Dick head shows up I wasn’t doing anything but walkin’. Fucker gets in my face smells the alcohol and next thing I know I’m spread eagle over the hood of his car for drunk and disorderly.

Boys:
<Samuel nods, looks back at the road> All right, then.
Boys:
<Samuel reaches over and opens the glove compartment, pulls out his cigarettes> You offer to fuck him to get out of the charges? <shakes out a cigarette, lights it, reaches over and puts the pack away>
Girls:
<Aubrey looks over at Samuel, eyes blazing> Yeah I totally did offered to let him do me right there on the hood of his police car..hell no I didn’t. I didn’t say fuck all to him other than Yes I understand my rights.
Boys:
<Samuel takes a drag, looks at her> Feelin’ a little defensive there, darlin’? I didn’t figure you did. What I was gonna say is I know a lotta women that *aren’t* sluts that woulda.
Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> Sorry.. Look these are third and fourth generation cops. They’re the ones that’ll fuck you *then* charge you with bribin’ a police officer. And Douchebag Donnie, the one you were talking too, grew up thinkin’ he was already a cop, before he even made the school.


Boys:
<Samuel nods> Yeah, I pretty much figured they were like that. Most good ol’ boy cops are. That’s not really the point. <looks at her> The point is.. “slut” is relative.
Girls:
<Aubrey looks over at him, shrugs> Doesn’t matter. I am what I am.
Boys:
<Samuel looks back at the road, takes a drag> All right.
Girls:
<Aubrey looks out the window> The first time anyone ever called me that I was 12.
Boys:
<Samuel looks over at her> I take it they thought they had a good reason? You develop early and have bigger tits or somethin’?
Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> No.. My mom was fuckin’ the school principal, <shrugs> and gettin’ paid to do it. <looks over at him> He was the first one she brought home for me to do.. told me he’d give me better grades. <looks back out the window> I told him and her to go fuck themselves and ran away. Which incidentally is the first time I ever got picked up too. Spent that night in the holdin’ tank, the next day I was in juvie.
Boys:
<Samuel nods, looks back at the road> Yeah, I figured you started young. Also figured you were the kinda girl that didn’t really give a shit what people thought.

 

Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> I don’t care. Never did. Still don’t.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> So what happened with the drunk and disorderly bullshit tonight?
Girls:
<Aubrey looks over at him> Nothin’. Brennen and I broke up. We’re done. But you know that.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> And you said you wanted to talk to me and Bree. <looks at her> We wanted to talk to you, too.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> I did.. do. I figured I’d catch you at Illusions tonight. Didn’t really want to bother you guys today.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head> Don’t worry about it. We’re done for the night. And I figured you could sleep it off in our extra room.
Girls:
<Aubrey looks at him> I don’t need to sleep it off. I was the only one in the pen tonight..
Boys:
<Samuel nods> So you already slept it off. Still.. didn’t figure you’d wanna stay at your place if you could help it.
Girls:
<Aubrey shrugs> I don’t want to bother you. It’s okay.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head> If it were botherin’ me, we wouldn’t even be havin’ this discussion.
Girls:
<Aubrey looks over at him> Samuel.. I did the hard part. I went home and packed his shit…alone.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at her> Aubrey.. shut the hell up. You’re stayin’ over. Period.
Girls:
<Aubrey looks back out the window>
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head, pulls into the driveway>
Girls:
<Aubrey looks over at him> Thanks for gettin’ me out. Let me know what I owe you and I’ll get it back.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> I knew you were gonna do that shit. <shakes his head> Don’t worry about it. It wasn’t that much, anyway.
Girls:
<Aubrey frowns> I don’t like owin’ people.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at her> Consider it part of our “Employee Rehabilitation Program”.
Girls:
<Aubrey arches her brow> You’re not gonna let me pay it back are you?
Boys:
<Samuel shrugs> I don’t believe in takin’ money from people who have less of it than I do. If you’re that worried about it, you can work it off or some shit.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> All right.

Boys:
<Samuel pulls up to the barn and parks>

Girls:
<Aubrey climbs out of the truck> This is nice.
Boys:
<Samuel gets out of the truck and walks around, looks over at her> Wait til you see the inside. C’mon. <heads into the barn>
Girls:
<Aubrey follows him to inside> Wow.. it’s a real barn.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> You thought it was a cover or somethin’? <walks over to the door leading upstairs, opens it> Up here. <heads up the stairs>
Girls:
<Aubrey smiles> Thought it was your house. Didn’t realize it was on top of the barn. <goes with him>
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> Nope. It’s a real barn with an apartment upstairs. It was cheaper to do it this way. Taryn’s barn gave me the idea.
Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> Never was in Taryn’s barn. But it’s a cool idea.
Boys:
<Samuel gets to the top of the stairs, walks into the apartment> Bree!
Boys:
<Samuel walks over and drops his key on the breakfast bar, looks over at Aubrey> Make yourself at home, darlin’. I’d offer you a beer, but I’m guessin’ you’ve had enough tonight.
Girls:
<Bree walks out of the guest room> Hey. <smiles at Aubrey> Don’t sweat it. We’ve all been there.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles at Bree> Some of us more than others.
Girls:
<Aubrey smiles at Bree and looks at Samuel> Yeah.. but It was a bottle of Jack.
Girls:
<Bree laughs> Yeah.. because some of us don’t get *caught*.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aubrey, smiles> Guess I’ll get you a beer then. <walks into the kitchen and pulls two out of the fridge, pops the tops, sets one on the breakfast bar and slides it toward Aubrey, smiles at Bree> Yeah, well… some of us are luckier than others. <takes a sip of his beer>
Girls:
<Bree smiles> There’s that. <Aubrey looks at Samuel> Thanks. <takes a long drink>
Boys:
<Samuel nods to Aubrey, looks at Bree> Figured I’d bring her home so we could have that talk with her.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Cool. She can hang here for a while.
Girls:
<Aubrey looks between them>
Boys:
<Samuel nods> I figured she could spend the night in the spare room.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Totally. I even remade the bed.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aubrey, smiles> There ya go.
Girls:
<Aubrey starts to say something, when Bree speaks> We can take her by the apartment so she can get some things before we go to the club.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Aubrey> I’m not taking no for an answer. <Aubrey nods> All right. Thanks.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> Which is pretty much what I told her, just not as nicely.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> So now she’s been told by both her bosses. Maybe she’ll just do it.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> I don’t know, baby girl. She seems like a bit of a rebel to me.
Girls:
<Aubrey smiles and shakes her head as she takes another drink of her beer>
Girls:
<Bree nods still smiling> Oh I know she is.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aubrey, smiles again> It’s all that ink. It’s a dead giveaway.
Boys:
<Samuel leans against the bar, looks at Bree> So.. what were those options we were thinkin’ she has?
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Oh.. you mean the assistant managers spot or the manager’s position? Or a Co manager’s spot?
Girls:
<Aubrey looks at them and blinks>
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Yeah, that’s right. <looks at Aubrey> We were talkin’ about how we can’t really afford to let you go, but Bree really needs more time off.
Girls:
<Aubrey smiles> Really? Even after last night?
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aubrey> What about last night? The drunk and disorderly bullshit?
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> I mean I had a record.. but this just adds to it..
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> Do we look like the kinda people that give a fuck if you got a record?
Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> Not really..
Boys:
<Samuel laughs> Shit, darlin’. You must have a higher opinion of me than I thought if you didn’t take one look at me and where I been and think *I* didn’t have one.
Girls:
<Bree laughs> We both have ’em. Hell, half the people that work doing what we do probably have them. You ever notice how there’s not a place for that on strip club apps.
Girls:
<Aubrey smiles> No.. but now that you mention it.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles at Bree> If strip clubs even bother with ’em.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Hell the one in the falls before Silver took it over you danced for the owner. He liked you, you were in.
Boys:
<Samuel nods, looks at Aubrey> Guess you ain’t got nothin’ to worry about, then.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> I guess not.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> So what do ya think, darlin’? Interested in a promotion?
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> Yes.. that’s what I was going to talk to you guys about actually.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at her> What were you gonna say about it?
Girls:
<Aubrey looks back at him> Just that I’ve been there since before it opened and I think I’d like a little more responsibility.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> Huh. And here we were worried you were gonna quit.
Girls:
<Aubrey shrugs> It crossed my mind.
Boys:
<Samuel nods, takes a sip of his beer> After what Brennan said, I’m not really surprised. Thing is, darlin’, you got two choices. You can own *it* or you can let it own *you*.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> I figured out last night <smiles> About half way through my bottle that Fuck him and them and he knew it before he got with me so really *he’s* the asshole. And if he don’t like it tough shit because it’s who I am.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> And there ya go. <smiles> Some of my favorite women are sluts. <thinks for a second, shakes his head> Actually, *all* my favorite women are sluts. <smiles again> That’s what makes ’em my favorites.

Girls:
<Bree laughs> Aubrey, Ava was a huge slut, Silver.. uh huh. Heather.. totally.
Girls:
<Aubrey looks at Bree> You?
Girls:
<Bree looks at Samuel smiles> Where it matters.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Hell, yeah she was.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree, smiles> *Now* she’s only a slut where it matters.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Aubrey most women are in some aspect of their lives.
Boys:
<Samuel nods, looks at Aubrey> And that’s how most men want it. They want their girls to be sluts in the bedroom. Not all sluts are sluts because they *can’t* keep their legs closed. Some of ’em are sluts because they just don’t have a reason to.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> Like Heather. Heather’s a slut because she likes men and she likes fuckin’ and she don’t see why some outdated moral bullshit should get in the way of her two favorite things.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Totally.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Silver’s the same way.. A slut but for all the right reasons. And Silver.. put her in a relationship and she’s as loyal as they come.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> *Now*, anyway. Took her a while to get there.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Go big or go home.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Damn straight.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods smiling> Okay I get it.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at her> That said, however, I dont’ see a lot of call for you to have to get on stage once you start your new role unless one of the girls is out sick or somethin’.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> All right. I’m okay with that.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> Figured you would be. Now, let’s talk about Brennan.
Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> What about him?
Boys:
<Samuel shrugs> I talked to him out in the alley after you left. Firstly, he’s as big a slut as you are, considerin’ he got with you when you were with one of his best friends, then he got with Hayden while he was with you. But I’m gonna tell you straight up so it don’t surprise you later… he didn’t break shit off with you because of you. He broke it off because he’s so whipped by that girl he can only see daylight when it’s comin’ outta her ass.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods, shrugs> Better her then me. <shakes her head> Samuel.. there’s a reason she’s got him wrapped.. and it’s got nothin’ to do with me bein’ a slut or him. We’re too different. He’s upper middle and lower lower. He doesn’t have to have a job.. I *have* to have one.
Girls:
<Aubrey shrugs> We were bad for each other.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at her> That’s bullshit, darlin’. Only reason he don’t *have* to have a job now is because he’s sittin’ on a nice little nest. That money won’t even last him a year.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> It won’t.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> And I didn’t see how you were all that bad for each other. And you’re not just because y’all aren’t enough alike to make it over the long term. There was a while me and Bree were bad for each other, and I’m tellin’ you, the two of you weren’t close to what we were. You might not have been the best, but that’s not the same as bad.
Girls:
<Aubrey shakes her head> I’m just not…relationship material.. <looks at him> it’s okay some people aren’t.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree>
Girls:
<Bree shakes her head> You never know. I mean some people go their whole lives thinkin’ that or something like it and they meet someone and there it is in your face. You just have to find someone that understands who you are.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aubrey> And I’m thinkin’ me and Bree are perfect examples of that.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Totally. We weren’t ready for it the first time around.. Either of us.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> And I’m pretty sure you can ask anyone that knows shit about me and they’ll tell ya I’m the *last* guy they’d consider relationship material.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> Hell, *Aiden* was more relationship material than me.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Seriously. But here we are.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> And Genja. Look at him.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aubrey> Genja barely has a feelin’ bone in his body.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> You found each other again. <shakes her head> It’s cool you guys. I’m okay with it.
Girls:
<Bree nods> But he’s got Kendra, and married Eden.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> And how much you wanna bet he ends up marryin’ Kendra?
Girls:
<Bree nods> Oh I bet he does. Sooner rather than later.

Boys:
<Samuel nods> No shit. Especially with him lookin’ at cabins with her and already movin’ her in.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Seriously. And the way she looks at him..
Boys:
<Samuel nods to Bree> And I bet he don’t even see it yet.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> She’s gonna have to tell him.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Probably not.. and won’t until she… exactly.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head> Yet, he manages to find *two* women in his life. <looks at Bree> Why the hell couldn’t *he* find the psychos?
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Because they’d kill each other.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles, nods, takes a sip of his beer> So, she’s worried about payin’ us back the bail money. If figured she could work it off.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Bull shit. When she’s flush she can donate to the employees benefit fund.

Boys:
<Samuel smiles, looks at Aubrey> How you feel about that?
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> All right… fine. But you will get it back.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> She’s as bad as we are with the not owin’ anyone shit.
Girls:
<Bree nods> And I can understand that. You don’t owe people can’t hold it against you.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> They can’t control you.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aubrey> And you don’t have to feel obligated to be nice to ’em when you wanna kick their asses.
Girls:
<Aubrey nods> Yes.
Girls:
<Bree smiles>
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree, smiles> What? <takes a sip of his beer>
Girls:
<Bree shakes her head> Nothin.. I just knew she wasn’t little miss quiet.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head> Please. Me and Aiden knew the first time we saw her, she was one of us.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Nice.. <looks at Aubrey> And we take care of our own.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Damn right. <looks at Aubrey> Which is why the next time you get locked up, you’re gonna use that phone call and call us.
Girls:
<Aubrey nod and smiles> Okay..
Boys:
<Samuel nods> All right then. <looks at Bree> How about we finish this night off right?
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Absolutely.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles, pulls the baggie out of his bag and heads into the living room with his beer>
Girls:
<the girls follow him while Bree grabs the papers, Aubrey takes a chair in the living room >
Boys:
<Samuel takes a seat on the couch, takes the papers from Bree and rolls a joint, lights it up and passes it to the girls>
Girls:
<Bree hits it and then passes it to Aubrey who hits it then passes it to Samuel, Bree and Aubrey exhale at the same time>
Boys:
<Samuel takes the joint, looks at Bree> You hear about Conrad and his idea to marry Silver at Cinderella’s castle?
Girls:
<Bree smiles> I didn’t.. what the fuck is Cinderella’s castle? Sounds like some kind of restaurant.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles, hits the joint and passes it back, holds the smoke, on the exhale> It’s in Disney World. That big ass castle you see in their logo at the beginning of all their movies.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head> And they expect us to go and dress up and shit.
Girls:
<Bree arches her brow> Shit.. I hate him.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> You and me both, but Aiden says it’ll be worth it just to see Silver dressed up like some kind of princess. And apparently, when he laughed and said somethin’, she got all serious and shit and told him to shut up.
Girls:
<Bree laughs> Oh my god.. he didn’t kill her on the spot.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head> He said he laughed harder, because she’s never done that to him before and she was takin’ it all serious and shit.
Boys:
<Samuel thinks> Hell, I just said that.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head> Anyway.. apparently, she got all emotional over it.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Wow.. <Aubrey nods> That’s… “Disney” I don’t think that should surprise me as much as it does.
(don’t)
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Yeah, no shit. <looks at Bree> I think I’m gonna go to bed. I’m wiped out.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Okay.. how’s your shoulder feelin’?
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> Between the weed and the pain killers, it’s not feelin’ at all.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> All right. <Aubrey shrugs> I guess I could take a nap.
Boys:
<Samuel leans over and kisses Bree> I’ll leave y’all to finish that joint and show her where the room is.
Girls:
<Bree kisses him back and smiles> All right.. I’ll be in in a few minutes. <takes the joint hits it and passes it to Aubrey who does the same passing it back to Bree>
Boys:
<Samuel nods> All right. <looks over at Aubrey> You and Bree can talk about your pay raise and benefits while you’re at it. I’ll see you in the mornin’.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Night, baby. <Aubrey nods> All right. G’night.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Night. <gets up and heads to the bedroom>
Boys:
<pulling off his shirt as he goes just because it’s a hot visual>
Girls:
<Bree and Aubrey do their thing, Bree smiles when Samuel pulls off his shirt, Aubrey smiles> Okay.. that’s hot. <Bree nods> Yeah.. it really is.
