Beverly Faraday Scene

Henry is dressed casually but nicely; camouflage for the beast that lurks beneath his slick taut skin.
He is sitting down at the table with BEVERLY FARADAY (late 20s), a beautiful young woman dressed attractively but smartly. Interview attire.
HENRY So tell me a little bit about
yourself, Ms. Faraday.
BEVERLY Please, it’s Beverly.
HENRY Of course. Beverly.
BEVERLY Well, as I mentioned on the phone,
I just finished my undergrad studies last semester. This autumn internship would be a great--
HENRY How do you feel about blood?
HENRY Are you squeamish?
BEVERLY Well no, I wouldn’t consider mysel--
HENRY Good, good. Blood is the key.
Henry scratches some notes on the paper pad in front of him.
BEVERLY I’d like to think I’m a quick
understudy and a very proactive type of p--
HENRY And your health? Any major
illnesses I should be aware of? Beverly’s practiced smile falters.
BEVERLY Uh, n-no. Not that I can recall.
HENRY No STDs? Are you currently
sexually active?
HENRY How many partners would you say
you’ve had in the past year. Beverly shifts uncomfortably.
BEVERLY I’m sorry, I don’t think that’s
appropriate... Henry sets his pen down. Precise and mechanical.
HENRY You’re right.
Henry stands abruptly and retrieves a canned soda from the fridge and a glass tumbler.
HENRY (CONT’D) Please, forgive me. Too many late
nights in the lab can make one forget his manners.
He fills the glass full and sets in on the table in front of Beverly before sitting down again.
Beverly looks at him, confused.
Henry leans in, his gaze capturing hers.
HENRY (CONT’D) Please. Drink.
The two stare at each other for several beats before Beverly relents and take a long deep sip from the glass. Her eyes remain transfixed on Henry’s as she takes a second drink, finishing the contents of the tumbler before slamming the glass down on the table.
Henry smiles.
Good girl.
Henry snaps out of their shared gaze. He stands up abruptly and extends his hand. Beverly follows suit.
HENRY (CONT’D) Ms. Faraday, it’s been a pleasure. I think I have all the information
I need. Thank you so much for coming out today.
Beverly takes his hand.
BEVERLY Thank you for your time--
Her stance suddenly weakens and she grabs the chair to steady herself.
Oh. I... She starts to collapse, but Henry is there to catch her.
HENRY Careful now.
Henry guides her limp body to the nearby couch.
HENRY (CONT’D) There we go. What you’re feeling is
a my own special blend of Ketamine and Propofol. I laced your glass with it.
Henry strokes the hair from her face and neck.
HENRY (CONT’D) Don’t you worry, its effect is
quite temporary. Just long enough for us to finish our business here.
Beverly’s eyes are wide and fearful. Henry retrieves a transfusion kit from a nearby table.
He tears open her blouse with one hand and positions the needle against the vein in her throat.
He leans in and licks the length of her lips before whispering into her ear.
HENRY (CONT’D) Don’t be scared now. You won’t
feel a thing.
