SCENE opens on two young women, Gia and Alex, as they sit close together on Alex’s couch cuddled under a blanket. The pair have been secretly seeing each other for over almost two years but, in the conservative small town they live in, their kind of love is not accepted. Gia is engaged to the town’s deputy major, Gabriel Dwight. Well known in the community, Gabriel was Gia’s high school sweetheart: captain of the football team, all state in track, and now the expecting father of her baby. The woman kicks off the blanket, revealing her belly, and slowly slides her feet over to Alex’s lap. Alex is busy looking at real estate listings back east. She seems determined and serious while Gia drifts in and out of a baby name book. The camera shows Alex scrolling through the listings, while trying to ignore Gia’s footsies. Finally, she shuts her laptop, a smile sneaking across her face.
‘Did you get any callbacks on the resumes you sent out?’ She asks. Gia shakes her head, adding that it’s only been a few days. ‘But you did make at least copies of the forms, right?’ Alex adds. Gia sits up and puts her arms around her lover. ‘Yes baby,’ she says. ‘I did everything you asked. I filled out the forms, I sent them and the copies to the court clerk in New York. We just have to schedule a hearing when we get there and then they will legalize the name change.’ Alex looks relieved. She’s been planning their exit for months now, ever since she found out that Gia was pregnant. Alex knew it wasn’t her girlfriend’s fault. Gabriel was controlling and manipulative. But now they have the perfect opportunity to leave and make a family somewhere more accepting. ‘I’m going to marry you as soon as we hit Virginia!’ She says proudly. Gia hugs and kisses her, teasing her for being such a goldstar before crawling onto her lap and pulling out some paint samples. They start looking at options for their future baby’s room when Gia gets a call from Gabriel, ordering her to come home immediately. The happiness drains from her face as she submissively agrees. Alex looks furious. She hates him so much, but she knows it’ll only be a couple more weeks before everything is ready for them to run away. She assures her girlfriend to stay strong and act like everything is normal. He can’t suspect a thing. They share a passionate kiss and Gia hurriedly exits Alex’s apartment.
CUT TO TITLE PLATE
Several days pass. Alex has been frantically trying Gia’s phone but there is no response. Finally, she gets the message that her girlfriend’s voicemail box is full. A look of concern washes over her face, as she paces back and forth. She knows something is wrong. Gia always gets back to her. Something has happened. In a panic, Alex tries to think of her options. She doesn’t want to alert Gia’s family and she refuses to call Gabriel since they’ve never gotten along, so she decides to drive past their house to investigate. She grabs her car keys and rushes out of the apartment.
CUT to Alex as she parks her car on the side of the road and slowly walks up a long, secluded driveway towards Gabriel’s house. She peers in a few windows before deciding to go look for Gia’s car, when the garage door suddenly opens and Gabriel steps out. He has Gia’s phone in his hand. ‘It’s been awhile, hasn’t it, Alex?’ Gabriel says coldly, after a long uncomfortable pause. Alex panics. She knows Gabriel thinks she left town months ago. ‘I was … just passing through … and was wondering if Gia and the baby needed anything…’ She stammers. Gabriel cuts her off. ‘I have to admit: I was impressed by your attention to detail. Had it not been so meticulously planned, I may have thought Gia came up with it herself. But, we all know you’re the smarter one.’ Alex stares at him, frozen. Her stomach drops. ‘Whatever you’ve been doing to Gia is going to stop,’ he says sternly, his voice becoming almost a growl. ‘I’m up for election this year and if you think a little dyke is going to stop me from my American dream, you’re mistaken!’ He throws the phone on the ground, crushing it under his foot, as he grabs Alex by her collar and pulls her inches from his face. ‘Now get the fuck off my property!’ He storms back inside his garage, closing the door in Alex’s face. She stays frozen, seething, before grabbing the phone off the ground and running away.
CUT to that night, Alex tosses and turns in her bed. In her dreams, she can hear Gia crying and calling out to her for help and the woman begins to wet the bed. The camera catches her sheer panties as they soak through and dribble down her leg. She wakes up in a cold sweat, discovering what has happened, and hurriedly cleans up her mess. Staggering into the living room, she grabs an unmarked bottle from her backpack and takes three ascorbic acid pills to calm her down. Gia’s broken phone sits on the coffee table and Alex stares at it, her chest heaving. Suddenly, she gets an idea. She grabs the phone and exits the room.
CUT to a close-up of Gia asleep in bed. A light touch on her arm wakes the woman up and, rubbing her eyes, she slowly realizes that Alex is leaning over her. She has gotten into Gabriel’s house. Panicking, the woman looks over at her passed out fiancée before begging Alex to leave before he wakes up. He isn’t kidding this time. Alex discovers that Gia has a black eye and, shaking her head in rage, she helps the pregnant woman out of bed and urges her to go wait in her car. Don’t pack anything. Just get your IDs and leave. Gia seems very nervous. ‘We’re leaving tonight,’ Alex sharply whispers. ‘And I promise you … he won’t hurt you or come after you ever again!’ Gia grabs her purse and tip-toes across the room. Alex waits in silence as she listens to her lover walk down the stairs and out the front door, before turning back to stare at Gabriel. He is completely unaware of what is happening.
Trying to summon up all her courage, Alex slowly takes off her clothes and, grabbing her bag to put on the bedside, crawls in beside him. He rolls over and drapes his arm around her, making her cringe. But, she knows what she needs to do. She takes his hand and guides it up to her chest. The man, slowly waking up and assuming it’s Gia, gives her breast a squeeze and then moves in to kiss her. Alex gingerly kisses back, in the shadows, before pulling out a satin blindfold from her bag. ‘Oh, so you want to play now,’ Gabriel says laughing, as she covers his eyes. ‘That’s a good girl. I knew you’d come around.’ Alex works her way down to his pajama pants and unbuttons the. ‘That’s right baby,’ he says. ‘Pull out daddy’s dick and show me how much you like it!’ Alex, disgusted at the thought of touching a penis, slowly pulls it out from his pants. He is already hard and moaning. She takes her phone from the bag and starts to take pictures of her sucking him off. Her lips curl at the contact of the big dick in her mouth, but she grins and bears it. She takes a few more silent pictures as he instructs her on what to do. ‘Put your whole throat into it,’ he orders. ‘This ain’t a fucking pussy anymore!’
Trying her best to ignore his crude comments, Alex pulls out a pair of cuffs and handcuffs him to the headboard. She straddles his dick as he encourages her to ride him. BG Sex Scene. Throughout the sex, Gabriel enthusiastically orders her to suck and fuck him in various positions while he is restrained. Not wanting to blow her cover, Alex does as he asks quietly and tries to get him to cum as quickly as possible. His disgusting comments are matched by her aggressive fucking. Finally, she rides him until he ejaculates on her face.
Hopping off him, she quickly wipes the cum away before taking a final photo of them both naked. He tells her to take the cuffs off, so he can go pee. Instead, she takes his blindfold off and walks back to the middle of the room to put on her clothes. His eyes widen as the reality of what just happened suddenly hits him. Screaming at her, Gabriel demands that she de-cuff him immediately. He looks around the room frantically for his fiancé, accusing Alex of taking her. He threatens to call the authorities. He threatens to hurt her. When he sees his threats go unanswered, he even makes a jab about how lousy the sex was. Gia always takes it way harder. She always lets him cum inside of her. But, at least Alex got fucked by a man now too, so she knows what she’s been missing. Unintimidated by his words, Alex calmly dresses before staring at him coldly. He starts to become more erratic, as he realizes that he no longer has control. She walks up to him, thrashing in his cuffs, and shows him her phone, swiping through each reputation-ruining photo. ‘Gia and I are leaving now. We won’t be coming back … and you won’t come looking for us.’ She says. ‘Otherwise, the media will have a field day with these photos and your political career will be over.’
She walks to the doorway, as his screams become whimpers of mercy. Dialing 911, she says ‘I’d like to report a break in at 3238 Paloma Ave. I heard yelling and glass breaking.’ She hangs up and holds the handcuff key in front of a frozen, dumbfounded Gabriel. ‘The police will be here soon,’ she says, smirking. ‘You didn’t catch a good look at the intruders, did you?’ She drops the key on the ground and turns out the light.
CUT to Gia waiting anxiously in the car, as Alex runs out and jumps in the driver seat. ‘Are you ok?’ she asks. Alex kisses her hard on the mouth and turns on the car. ‘I am now,’ she says, and the two drive off into the night.
