A Chapter by Jemma Packman


Charlie opens the back door to the club to see Robbie kissing another woman. Robbie pulls away and says "Yvette, we have to stop. Charlie will be here soon."

Yvette says "Haven't you told her yet? Come on, Robbie, if you don't tell her I will."

Robbie says "I'm going to tell her."

Yvette says "You keep saying that. Do you want to be with Charlie or with me?"

Robbie says "You. I have to find the right time."

Chalie steps inside, slams the door and says "Now will do."

Robbie says "Charlie. How long have you been there?"

Charlie says "Long enough. Too long. Not sure. Hey, Yvette, how are you enjoying my EX-girlfriend?" Yvette starts to walk towards the back door. "Don't go. This concerns you too."

Yvette says "I should go."

Charlie growls "Stay where you are."

Robbie says "You're angry aren't you?"

Charlie says "You've always had a gift for understating the obvious."

Robbie says "Talk to me."

Charlie says "Walking in on you two, like winning the lotto. Best feeling in the world."

Robbie says "Charlie."

Charlie says "Of course I'm angry, Roberta. Angry might not even cover it. How long?"

Robbie says "Does it matter?"

Charlie says "It does to me, and it might to her."

Yvette says "Six months."

Charlie says "Six months?" Robbie reaches out to grab Charlie's arm. Charlie pulls her arm away. "Don't touch me."

There is a knock on the door to the club. Greg enters the room and says "Great, Charlie, you're here. Crowd's getting restless. They want you."

Charlie says "At least someone does."

Greg says "Excuse me?"

Charlie says "I'll be out in a minute." Greg goes back into the club. "One song, then I'm gone."  Charlie enters the club and goes straight to the stage, ignoring everyone that tries to talk to her. "Good evening. I'm only going to be singing one song tonight then you won't be seeing me for a while. I'm going on vacation." Charlie sings. "Enjoy the rest of your night." Charlie leaves the stage and bolts for the office with her head down. Once she's in the ofice she pushes past Robbie to the door.

Robbie says "Wait please."

Charlie says "What for?"

Robbie says "Talk to me."

Charlie says "About what?

Robbie says "About this. About us."

Charlie says "There's nothing to say. I'm done. This is your mess. There is no us."

Charlie opens the door but before she steps outside, Robbie says "Charlie?"

Charlie, without turning her head, says "Goodbye, Roberta." Charlie walks out and slams the door shut behind her.
