Arizuma: Scene 2

Written by Carrizo

Milton has learned he can't convince Caroline not to take her silver to the top of Arizuma mountain. So he figures if the world is going to end, he might as well tag along for it. That leaves the grounded Caroline with the silly ringtail in tow, a reluctant pair, but the only partner she has on the lonely mountain. This scene opens with the pair taking a rest, and Milton trying to liven up the mood by showing off his impressive tail-juggling.
MILTON: Disconnected and innocent, tries hard to always stay positive no matter how gloomy things get. Loves jokes and being silly.
CAROLINE: Simmering inside with frustration, resentful of her place in the world, but uses that to keep herself determined. Sees no magic and little joy around her.
MILTON: Ta-da!
CAROLINE: [LAUGHING] Where did you learn to do that?
MILTON: I taught it to myself! It’s a spiritual exercise.
CAROLINE: You’re kidding.
MILTON: It teaches focus. When you’re tail-juggling, the only thing you’re thinking about is tail-juggling. Stress, worry, fears, it all just vanishes into the air.
CAROLINE: Obligations?
MILTON: Yeah, those too! [PAUSE] So, how come you’re here anyway?
CAROLINE: You already know why I’m here.
MILTON: Yeah, I know about the mission to end the world, drown us all in Gila Dragon tears. Blah blah. But why you?
CAROLINE: What do you mean?
MILTON: Well, there’s lots of coyotes on the playa. And this mission sounds serious. Seems strange they only sent one.
CAROLINE: It’s none of your business.
MILTON: I won’t blab! Tell you what, I’ll go first. I’m here because the spirits of Arizuma mountain called me.
CAROLINE: Called you.
MILTON: Yup! My spirit guide told me. My training was supposed to be three years, but just a couple months in, he said the spirits told him I had a greater destiny elsewhere.
CAROLINE: Wait a minute. You’re not from here?
MILTON: Well, not originally. I’m from the playa as well. But I obeyed the spirits and made my home in Arizuma mountain bringing spiritual guidance to natives and travelers.
CAROLINE: [PAUSE] How many have you guided?
MILTON: You're my first! The first that could talk, anyway. Giving spiritual advice to cactus is really boring, let me tell you. And mountain balls are jerks.
CAROLINE: [PAUSE] How long have you lived here?
MILTON: Two years.
CAROLINE: [PAUSE] Milton. Did it ever occur to you that your spirit guide got it wrong?
MILTON: [PAUSE] How about another tail-juggle?
