Minisode 1

Minisode Hatov Alone
Uneven footsteps
NOVA
(hissing)
What are you doing there?
 
HATOV
This is the shame corner.  I let you get hurt, I couldn’t help you, I am thinking things over.  (beat) how do you feel?
 
NOVA
Like death warmed over.
 
HATOV
(despondently)
Do you actually recognize me?
 
NOVA
(beat)
That’s a weird question.
 
HATOV
When the fever spikes sometimes you don’t.
 
NOVA
(Pained sitting)
Well, you my dear princeling are a pain in the ass I ended up fishing from the inky void of space.
 
HATOV
I’m worried about you Nova
 
NOVA
(beat)
Huh.  I think you’ve gone and gotten yourself attached, (beat) I have to say you chose poorly.
 
HATOV
Your skin (beat) it’s hot
 
NOVAI
, that feels nice.  Your hands are cold.
 
HATOV
Go back to bed.
 
NOVA
No.  Lend me your shoulder.
 
HATOV
“Lend me your shoulder”, no one on Eolara would have dared ask me that.
 
NOVA
Sounds fucked up.
 
HATOV
I’ve been wondering more and more about that since I got stranded.
 
NOVA
Oh, is little space eyes experiencing doubts?
 
HATOV
Yes.
 
NOVA
Good, it means you’re starting to think.
 
HATOV
I don’t know if I like it.
 
NOVA
(laughs)
Ow, shit, shitshitshitshitshit
 
HATOV
What’s wrong?
 
NOVA
Everything hurts, and I wore myself out walking over here.
 
HATOV
Do you want me to get Sawa?
 
NOVA
If I wanted the droid, I’d call her over.
 
HATOV
Did you eat?
 
NOVA
(Gags)
Please no.  No food.
 
HATOV
(warningly)
You need to eat.
 
NOVA
If I eat, I puke.  The novelty has worn off pretty boy.
 
HATOV
Don’t make me feed you.
 
NOVA
You don’t have the balls to try.
 
HATOV
You’re wasting away.
 
NOVA
(beat)
Are you really worried about me, or is it more about getting home?
 
HATOV
I (beat) I don’t know. I want to go home but the thought of you dying keeps me up at night.
 
NOVA
How many times do I have to tell you I’m not going to die, pretty boy?
 
HATOV
Uhm
 
NOVA
Is there a number I’ve gotta hit, or some tone I’m missing?  Is there some sort of input code I should use?
 
HATOV
I don’t think that’s how it works.
 
NOVA
(sighs)
I’m going to trap you here for bit, is that okay?
 
HATOV
What do you mean?
 
NOVA
Wake me up in an hour.
 
HATOV
Nova, you need to go back to your bed.
 
NOVA
Mmm mmm, I had a nightmare.  I need you here to tell me it wasn’t real.
