JAMES IS TALL, SLIM; WITH DARK GREY SKIN] JAMES ANDERSON “I know who you are.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “I’ve been here a while, I’m sure you’ve seen me around.” JAMES ANDERSON “How’s it going, COE2009?” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “You’ve got the wrong man.” JAMES ANDERSON “I don’t think I do; your mother’s been looking for you.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “What do you know about my mother?” JAMES ANDERSON “Nothing much, just that they’ve taken her in for questioning. She’s gone on record; asking you to turn yourself in. You didn’t know?” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “No, I didn’t. Shit! I’ve been out of the loop, staying offline and under the radar you know. Do I need to be worried about you knowing who I am; what’s your name?” JAMES ANDERSON “James; and no, I won’t say a word.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “Why’s that then, James?” [JAMES MOVES IN CLOSE.] JAMES ANDERSON “One, I find you incredibly sexy; two, I support your cause; and third, I donated a crate of weaponry to your crew. So I’m in this with you. In order to protect myself, I need to protect you.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “You think I’m sexy James?” JAMES ANDERSON “I most certainly do.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “Isn’t that nice. If you want, I get off in another hour, if you want to meet up?” JAMES ANDERSON “I want, I so want.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “Alright then, I need to get back to work.

A year ago, she was in a System Hopper crash. We were real tight, the best of friends, until the raiders killed my father, and stole my brother. After that, I couldn’t look at Anna, all I saw when I looked into her eyes was the face of the enemy. I always thought my first time would be with her, I don’t know if I ever thought it would be some big thing between us, or if it would just be youthful exploration, but still, that was my plan, until it all went down the tubes. After that, I was so full of rage, any desires I may have had were channelled into orchestrating Human deaths on a massive scale. I put everything into recruiting new soldiers and protecting them.” JAMES ANDERSON “But this is alright, isn’t it, me being a man?” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “I like both, and can I say James, you are one fine Garconer man. Hmm, hmm.” JAMES ANDERSON “We’ll take it slow.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “I‘d like that.” [COLE PULLS JAMES CLOSE, KISSING HIM PASSIONATELY. COLE PULLS JAMES DOWN ONTO THE BED.
