ALMAJust tell us about Honey Bun.
MOONHoney Boy! (back to camera) So, I’m standing on the old dirt track where Honey Boy won his last race- before plunging into the ice water mansions of Gitchy-Gummi.
ALMAMoon! Stick to the script.
MOONWe are summoning the spirit of Honey Boy tonight, and he’s going to help me win tomorrows race.
MOONDo you really think they’ll break my thumbs if I don’t pay them back?
ALMAMoon! Don’t bring up loan sharks when the cameras are rolling. And yes, they’ll break your thumbs. They’ll break every bone in your body.
MOONI can’t believe you talked me into going to them.
ALMAI didn’t talk anyone into anything.
MOONYou’re the one who needed the money for the smart phone.
ALMAIt’s called an Android, dumb ass. Smart phone is a generic phrase. And the Android isn’t the problem. We’re four months behind on the rent, the repo man took my car-
MOONI know, I know! At least I got the cable bill paid so we can watch Breaking Bad.
ALMACan we get on with the shoot please?
MOONFine! So, on this very spot, on a chilly September night Honey Boy won his last race. I have a picture of him holding the trophy. (pulls photo out of his pants pocket). Can you get a close up of this?
Alma moves in for a close up of the photo.
MOON (cont’d)As you can see, next to Honey Boy is the love of his life, Whiz Winchester- the fastest lady driver back then.
ALMAShe’s big- tall as Honey Boy.
MOONYep. A tall drink of water.
ALMAWhat happened to Whiz after Honey Boy died?
MOONNobody knows. Some say she headed south. Some say she killed herself-
Suddenly, the trunk moves as if there is something very powerful inside, knocking Moon on to the ground.
ALMAMoon, stop goofing around!
MOONWhat are you talking about? That thing moved!
The trunk moves again.
MOONOh my god!
An old car engine revs offstage, loudly. Then several car engines rev- it sounds like a race track right before a race. The sound builds and builds.
ALMAThis is awesome! Go stand by the trunk and tell us about summoning Honey Boy!
MOONAre you crazy? We have to get out of here!
Suddenly, the sounds stop. Silence. Moon and Alma stare at each other.
ALMAI think I got all that recorded!
