Idle Paws: Scene 3

Written by Tazel Sixpaws

Detective Ronald Harper has tracked Walter, now 'Zane', after a series of vicious murders. The husky is obviously totally in Zane's control, and he has one more victim at his claws - a young hedgehog girl. Harper's daughter. The detective is desperate to save his girl's life - trying one last time to save Walter, and Elizabeth. But when the unexpected happens, can Harper survive his own 'Zane'?
ZANE: Walter's "Other Voice". Ominous, controlling, vicious. He wants to be the one in control of the body, and he will do anything, including sacrifice himself, to do it.
HARPER: Age 40. Forensics psychologist, tasked to bring in Walter/Zane after the murderous rampages. Normally calm and focused, but this scene will have him desperate to save a loved one.
ZANE: One step closer, Detective, and this one gets a tracheotomy!
HARPER: Walter, calm down, please. There's no need for violence.
ZANE: God DAMMIT, I am NOT WALTER! I'm ZANE! Walter is dead and gone!
HARPER: Alright, alright. Zane. Just take it easy. What do you want for her life?
ZANE: I want - I want freedom! I want what you take for granted! I want to exist!
HARPER: We - We can arrange this. I can put in a good word for you. Just let Beth go, please.
ZANE: Beth? Is that the meat's name? [BEAT] You know, I never bother to ask.
HARPER: Walter would. He's kind that way.
ZANE: He's *WEAK* that way! He disgusts me! I want nothing to do with him!
HARPER: Zane, think for a moment. You want freedom. But when you are caught, that freedom will be denied to you AND Walter.
ZANE: Walter doesn't matter!
HARPER: He does matter! It's his body you're using! [BEAT] Walter! I know you're in there! Fight him!
ZANE: [TORTURED GROWL, THEN PANTING AND WHIMPERING]
HARPER: WALTER! This is your last chance! You HAVE to fight him! You can't let him win!
ZANE: [SOFTER, AS WALTER] D-Detective - help - can't - fight - him!
HARPER: Walter, please, if you're in there, you have to let Beth go! Focus on letting her go!
ZANE: [SOFTER, AS WALTER] No - can't - Rrrrr! - too - strong - please - save me!
HARPER: Walter! Focus on the knife! Drop the knife! Give Beth to me! We can still save you!
ZANE: [AS ZANE] ARRRGH! NO! NEVER!
SFX: [THROAT SLASH, GURGLE, THUD]
HARPER: BETH! NOOOO! [BEAT] [SOBBING] Beth - oh God no!
ZANE: [PANTING] You - you tried to end me, detective. You tried to take something I needed to live. [DEEP BREATH] What's that about turnabout? Fair play?
HARPER: She was innocent!
ZANE: She was PREY, detective! Walter was prey too! They both got what they deserved. What they ALL deserve!
HARPER: You - you monster. You goddamn monster!
ZANE: Oh, I'm more than that, detective. I'm the essence of hunting. Of survival! I am death! I'm the top of the fucking food chain! [TAKES DEEP BREATH] Mmm. Can you smell it? The blood! That copper nectar. It empowers! Fuels! Drives!
HARPER: [STAMMERING] I can't - I can't think, I - I want to -
ZANE: Do what? Rip me to shreds? Bathe in my blood? [LAUGHTER] The hedgehog wants to be a predator now?
HARPER: No - I have to ar-arrest you. I have to - [WAILING] oh God, Beth!!
ZANE: [SCREAMING] Forget the meat! [SOFTER] Your blood is boiling! Feel your heart pound, see your vision narrow - feel that primal urge building? That's ME in there! Let. Me. OUT!
HARPER: No - N-NO!! I - NO!! - GRRRR!
ZANE: Come on, Harper! Let me out! END ME THE RIGHT WAY!
HARPER: [PRIMAL SCREAM AS HE ATTACKS]
