Charlie Meets the New Neighbor from Across the Hall

A Play in One Act by C. Pauken

Cast
The Author, as Himself, a thirty three year old part time liquor store clerk
The Neighbor, as Herself, an attractive twenty something collegiate

Int, Night. Friday, about eleven pm. A stairwell between the second and third floor. The Author is going upstairs, having come inside from smoking a cigarette, the Neighbor is clattering downstairs. The two meet halfway.

Neighbor
"Are you drunk right now?"

Author
[shrugs] "I'm getting there."

Neighbor
[giggles and whispers] "I can get there faster."

Author
"What's that?"

Neighbor
[giggles again] "I said I can get there faster!"

Author
OOOkkk...

Neighbor
[giggles] "You're making me uncomfortable."

The Neighbor then turns and continues her descent down the stairs in a quick and hasty manner. The Author is confused.


Fin.
