“Trauma Bonding with a Stranger During the Purge”

[F4M] “Trauma Bonding with a Stranger During the Purge” [The Purge] [Emotional] [Passionate] [Strangers to Lovers] [Sweet] [Kissing] [SFX]

SFX: Night time wilderness / a fire pit roaring / a branch suddenly breaks

(On edge) Who’s there?

SFX: Gun cocks

(Scared and on the verge of tears) I’m armed! Please go away. I just want to be left alone! Stop hiding and come out where I can see you!

SFX: He steps out of the bushes

(Scared, but firmly) Look, I’m not participating in the Purge! Are you? (Pause – Sighs in relief) Open your jacket, so I can see if you’re armed. (Pause) So, you’re good, then? Okay… (Pause) I’m putting my gun down, so no funny business, okay?

SFX: Puts the gun down

So, avoiding the Purge, too? (Pause) Yeah, that makes sense. I’m just not a killer, point blank. I’ll do what I have to do in order to survive, no more, no less, but I’m not someone who goes out looking for it. My parents are in full Purge mode right now, murdering and pillaging their way through their social circle like a bunch of maniacs. That will never be me.

I’m Molly, by the way. Nice to meet you.

What about you? (Pause – Winces) That’s a tough break. I can see why you’re not interested in all this… (cringes) carnage, either. It’s just ugly. All of it. At least out here, in the woods, we’re just one of the animals trying to survive to sunrise, no different than the squirrels or rabbits, who just happens to have an agenda much like our own. I find it strangely comforting.

(Pause – Awkwardly) No boyfriend, sadly. We broke up last week. It was a whole thing. You? (Longer pause as she listens to him talk) Well, I propose a toast. “Relationships suck, but we can do better.”

SFX: Two beers open

Cheers! (Takes a drink)

So, what are you doing out here, so deep in the wilderness, without much in the way of supplies? I’m confused. What was your game plan? Spend the night, freezing on the ground? (Pause – Laughs) Yeah, well, it’s not as easy as it looks, clearly.

(Laughs) Lucky for you, I keep a pretty well stocked bug out bag in my truck. It should have mostly everything you need to make it to morning.

(Pause) Huh? (Another short pause) Well, I’m not the killing type. If I left you here to your own devices, I’m pretty sure you’ll die of exposure before morning. (Playful laughter) Besides, keeping you alive will give me something to do!

(Pause – As if answering a question of “How do you know so much about survival?) Well, I’m a farm kid. There’s nobody better to be stuck in the woods with than me. What would you like to know?

(Shocked tone) Pretty? Me? Are you nuts?

(He kisses her – She’s pleasantly shocked) Wow, why did you just kiss me? (Playfully) I mean, like, Sir, are you lost? I just didn’t expect it. That kiss was out of nowhere.

(Pause – Aroused, but mildly sad) Yes… I’m scared, too. I can’t begin to tell you how scared I am. You’re right, you know. We need to do something, anything other than just sitting there, waiting to die. Yes… I’m with you. Let’s take our minds off this bullshit.

(The two make out for several minutes, groping and exploring each other)

SFX: Zippers, etc. as clothes are being removed

Yes, make love to me. Please…

(They start having sex. It’s passionate, raw, and deeply emotional)

(Moaning in pleasure) Oh, fuck, I didn’t know how badly I needed this! Oh, god. Kiss me, please, hold me and don’t let go.

(They’re making out passionately. It’s wordless, primal in nature, and beautiful as they make love. The two continue for several minutes, holding on to each other, being tender and loving the entire time. This continues until orgasm)

(Breathlessly) I can’t believe we came together. That’s never happened to me before.

So… are you staying the night? (Pause) Good. I’ll make breakfast.

SFX: Fade out
