ACT I

Scene 1

Enter Jane, Jenna, Emily, Catherine and Bella to
their mansion on the river. They walk into the
living room and sit down on the couches while
relaxing. A butler brings them glasses of water,
gives it to them and then leaves.

BELLA
My what a wonderful day to be out and about. So full of
adventure now arenít we ladies?

JANE
That is so Bella.

JENNA
A delightful, cheery day that is.

BELLA
Itís dark and rainy out though my dear.

JENNA
I meant in my heart.

CATHERINE
My heart was meant for you Bella.

EMILY
The heart was meant to love and be loved in return.

BELLA
My heartís love is strong.

JENNA
The heart is a beautiful wonder.

JANE
The heart is a wonder to explore and be explored.

BELLA
I donít know why you ladies will not listen to me. I
have your best interests in mind. You are selfish.
Thatís a problem. It wouldnít be a problem if you were
selfish with my love.

JANE
And youíre being arrogant and all knowing.

EMILY
We are already arguing.

BELLA
You know I am right about this though. If you could
just behave yourself and act classy.

JANE
Why do you always have to have the ideal or perfection?

BELLA
Because it is what I want and more along the lines of need.

EMILY
You donít always get what you need or want.

BELLA
Yes. I do. Somethings I just donít need or want
anymore. They make themselves not wanted or useless anymore.

EMILY
That is so. That must feel bad then or the one that you
loved and now donít love.

JANE
You get the love that you deserve and you donít get the
love you donít deserve.

JENNA
Are you saying that I donít deserve you?

BELLA
I am only implying that.

JANE
Thatís a little rude. Wouldnít you think?

BELLA
Not at all. Earn it. Deserve it.

EMILY
Unfortunately, most of what you are saying is true.

BELLA
If you lack passion, then youíll never get anywhere.
You will miss out on life. Passion is what makes you
ambitious and not lazy. You wonít find passion in
another lover. Youíll only ever find passion or truly
love me.

EMILY
You are making it really hard to trust you. Trust isnít
learned nor given. It is earned by the worthiness of
your character and who you are.

BELLA
Go on. Keep doing what you are doing. You will only
wind up breaking your own heart. You will only have
yourself to blame.

JANE
So, now you know what is best for us? That is arrogant.

BELLA
Yes. Well. While, I do love you. Ask yourself why that
is. It would mean you are not lovable and you yourself
caused that. Not everybody is lovable.

JANE
Yes. I would agree with that.

BELLA
I want both your mind and your body. Not just your
body. As that is not love without both. Just like I
have to find passion in us. Without passion in the
relationship, you donít have one. You are stagnating.
Most people donít. The sparks of passion should always
be kept alive. You are doomed for failure. Nobody else
has what we do. And those that can see it want it. Who
makes you laugh the most and smile? Me. Who do you get
excited to see? Me. Even if you make me wait for your
body. I will wait for your body.

EMILY
That is maybe so.

BELLA
If you lack passion. You lack life. You arenít truly
alive and donít feel all and every emotion fully.

EMILY
Such is life.

BELLA
So, what Iím just supposed to just picture itís you
that Iím with; when Iím with someone else. That itís
you. That Iím eating out your vagina. When itís
actually just another girlís vagina. I suppose you just
expect me to picture that itís your vagina. Great
advice. Not really though.

EMILY
I am chained to all of your love. Your heart belongs to
me. We belong to each other. In a web of our romance do
we come undone. A wonder full of love unravels from within.

BELLA
Thou love surely must make you content and happy. The
love that we have is our every desire. The every moment
takes us away all of the time. This love surely is
everything that we have ever desired and more. I am
quite content with all of the passion that we hold for
one another.

EMILY
Love should be deep. It should take me deeper under.
Everything that is romantic is ideal.

BELLA
When have I ever lied to you? Never.

EMILY
That is true. You never have lied before.

JANE
You are wonderful to me.

BELLA
I have all of the most honorable intentions for all of
you ladies. What I should be asking is do all you
ladies have the most honorable intentions for me?
Meaning you wonít ever leave me once you come to me.
Give me your heart, mind, and body. Let me give you all
of the love that I have to give to you. Donít waste any
of my love, loves.

JENNA
My intentions are honorable for you Bella. As I love
you. I will never leave you.

JANE
I love you also, Bella.

BELLA
You have time. All we have is time and each other. Life
without me would be miserable and boring for you. You
will never fall in love with another. I am selfish in
my love with all you ladies. I do not want to share you
with another. I canít just pick out one. I have to
have all of you ladies. As I fell in love with you all.
I will only fall more in love with you over time. As
love is made of our hearts.

CATHERINE
Your beautiful words mean everything to me and much
more. Such sweet words escape your lips. Lips that
speak of beauty.

BELLA
Well. These lips are yours if you will have them.

CATHERINE
I will. Iíll catch your kiss.

BELLA
I will catch you in my arms.

CATHERINE
Good. That is very well.

EMILY
For we are lovers held from within time. Together, we rise.

JANE
Bella is my passionate lover. Forever intertwined in my heart.

BELLA
I am the ideal lover. Perfect in every way. Perfect for
you. I just wish you would open your heart up to me and
let me fully love all you ladies. Trust me. My heart is
true and pure.

JENNA
My heart is open and it is ready to fly away with you.
It is ready to fly away into dreams that are to come true.

BELLA
I will give you all of my heart. For it is true.

JENNA
I want you to fulfill my every wish and even more.

BELLA
I would do anything to see all of you beautiful ladies
smile. As your smile means everything to me. You ladies
are all so beautiful. Such a beautiful sight.

EMILY
Well. I am smitten. Taken by love. I am drifting away
in the weightless clouds.

JANE
Lost in your love that I am. I donít know what I would
do without you, Bella. I would be so lost. Lost in love.
