Title 'D' '2004'

Int: house - day

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/14/2013

Dina adjusts camera, then steps back. She looks sad. Kids are playing on a trampoline in the background.

dina

He's always here... I can feel him in the room. I feel him when I do the laundry, when i'm watching the kids, when I wake up in the middle up the night, he's there, standing at the foot of my bed, watching me. At first I thought I was just imagining it. But now I know that he's real. He's real... and he never leaves.

Jadon walks in the room.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Jadon

Dina, what are you doing.

dina

Nothing.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Dina exits the screen.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Jadon

Why aren't you watching them? You know they can't be on the trampoline alone.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

dina

I'm sorry, I'm just a little distracted.

Dina goes and shuts off the camera.

Words without experience are meaningless.

MichaelHameister33 - on 06/04/2013

You know I don't like it when you quote those weird books you read.

Dina laughs

Jadon and Dina outside watching the kids on the trampoline.

Jadon

They really like that trampoline.

dina

They really do. Your mom was right thinking this would make the kids come over here more.

Jadon

Too bad they didn't even know it was here. I can't believe she bought this two years ago but we never even knew.

dina

She always invited us over, but we never came.

Jadon

She was so lonely after my dad died... maybe it's good she's with him now.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

dina

she sure passed away a lot more gracefully then my mother, that's for sure.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Jadon

You know, It's a shame your mother never got to meet Leigh Ann and Leon, if just she lasted one more day.

dina

Oh please, she wanted to have that heart attack. She couldn't stand the thought of living on the same earth as the kids.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/20/2013

Jadon

When are we going to tell them?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

dina

Tell them what?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Jadon

What they are.

dina

Never. We agreed they didn't need to know.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Jadon

But what if they find out when they're older, they'll be mad. We can't just pretend it didn't happen, they have a right to know.

dina

Stop. We don't talk about this. We agreed.

Dina walks off screen.

Dina looking at a doll, fixing its hair. Jadon come's up behind her. Jadon hugs her from behind.

dina

I'm sorry... I just don't like to think of that time of my life, it was so horrible.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Jadon

I know, With your mom kicking you out... and the incident.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Dina closes her eyes and takes a deep breath she continues to adjust the doll.

Jadon (CONT'D)

You know I remember when you went back to get your stuff.. You got all your cloths, but what you really wanted were these dolls.

dina

My dad gave these to me, they are all I have to remember him by.

jadon

What about when we grow old, and I die, what will you remember me with?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Dina laughs a bit

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

dina

Oh Jadon... if you died... I don't think I would be able to even accept it.

Jadon

hmm... So why did you bring these dolls out anyway?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

dina

Well it's the twins birthday and I was thinking I would give this to Leigh Ann.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

Jadon

That sounds like a great idea.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/15/2013

dina

I thought so too.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/20/2013

Dina places the doll high on a dresser, she walks out of the door.

dina (CONT'D)

Leon, Leigh Ann, time to wash up and then head to bed.

Dina and Jadon are in bed sleeping. The man in the jeans and white mask (mask not seen) takes the doll off the dresser, Dina falls back asleep. A loud thump is heard. Dina get's out of bed, and walks down the stairs. She see's the man looking in the fridge. A light turns on, Dina turns around and see's Jadon.

Jadon

What are you doing out of bed?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Dina looks behind her, the man in gone, the doll is on the table.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

The man, he was here. He was looking in the fridge.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Jadon

No he wasn't... There's no one here.

dina

But he was, right before you came down.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Jadon hugs Dina, then pauses.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/20/2013

Jadon

Tomorrow I'm calling Dr. Hummis, I think we need to get you checked out.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Dina pushes away from Jadon.

dina

I am not crazy.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Jadon

I really think we should get you on something... it could help.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

dina

We have been to the doctor before. We went to a hundred different doctors... They all say the same thing.

dr. humburt

I think you have a mild case of paranoid Schizophrenia. These visions... This person you've been seeing. He's not really there. I'm going to put you on some medication, tell your husband to call me again in a few weeks to tell me how its working.

The psychologist hands Dina a piece of paper. Dina takes it, walks out of the room to Jadon. Jadon is now wearing glasses.

dina

Where did you get those?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/20/2013

Dina points to the glasses

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/20/2013

Jadon

At the optometrists office across the street. Do you like them?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/20/2013

dina

Yeah, but I didn't even know you needed glasses.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/20/2013

Jadon

Me either, but i'm glad I know now.

Dina is at home, she is drinking a glass of wine. Jadon comes home and puts the pills on the table.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Jadon

You need to take your pills.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

dina

I don't need pills.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Dina stares at him.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Jadon

Take your pills.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Dina stares at him. After a few seconds of this Jadon picks up the pills, takes one out and holds it in his hand. Dina holds out her hand and he drops it in. Dina stares at him passive aggressively.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Jadon (CONT'D)

Put it in your mouth, and swallow it.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Dina doesn't stop staring at Jadon. She puts the pill in her mouth, and then picks up her wine glass, she brings it up to her mouth but Jadon pushes it down.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Jadon (CONT'D)

You can't take the pills with wine.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

dina

Well it's a little too late for that.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Jadon gets a glass out of the cupboard. He fills it with water as Dina gets up out of her chair. As Jadon is bringing the cup of water to the table Dina spits out the pill into the garbage. Jadon see's and slams the cup onto the table hard. Dina leans against the sink edge. Jadon grabs the pills and brings them over to her.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/17/2013

Jadon

Take the pill

dina

No.

Jadon

You're sick, Dina. These pills will help you get better.

Jadon takes a pill out of the bottle and force's it in her mouth, Jadon takes the glass of water and puts it to Dina's lips but Dina struggles and slaps the bottle of pills out of Jadons hand onto the ground. Jadon backs away and puts the cup and the bottle, which now has lipstick on it, on the table.

Jadon (CONT'D)

What the hell Dina!? I just want you to get better. Sometimes I think you want to be sick. Well I'm done. Take your pills or I'll leave you, and I'll take the kids.

Jadon walks out of the room.

Oh thats good.

MichaelHameister33 - on 06/03/2013

Why won't you take the pills?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/19/2013

dina

I'm afraid.

Jadon

Afraid of what?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/19/2013

dina

I've heard stories. People taking pills, suddenly they're a zombie with no emotions, I don't want that to happen to me.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/19/2013

Jadon

That won't happen Dina, these will help you get better.

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/19/2013

dina

But what if they don't? These are my last chance... what if they don't work?

MichaelHameister33 - on 05/19/2013

Jadon

Then we will try something else, please, please just try this. Plus the doctor said if you don't take these it could just get worse.

Dina looks at him

Dina looking at the street at someone walking their dog. The sound of laughing is in the background. Then she looks at her kids on the trampoline. Dina see's something in the corner of her eye. She looks but there is nothing there. She closes her eye for a second. But dina hears something running through the bushes, then she looks behind her and see's the man with the mask run out of her sight. Dina starts walking towards him scared. She turns the corner and doesn't see anything. But then Leigh Ann screams. Dina runs to the trampoline and when she see's what happened she starts crying and falls to her knee's.
