STUCK

 

by Trevon

 

Characters:

Blaze the lion, 15

Two-Time the lion, 14 (friends)

Setting:

Under a tree in an African jungle. In soft brown grass and by a creek. You could hear birds chirp and the soft splash of the creek hitting the water. Blaze, his mom and his friend Two-Time are scattered around the area sleeping where shade is.

Time:

It’s 6:30am on a summer day

At Rise:

Two-Time keeps throwing rocks from his laying position at Blaze playfully. Blaze sluggishly waking up.


 

Blaze

Stop throwing things pussy… cat.

Two-Time

Get up so we can do down to the other side of the lake.

Blaze

I don’t feel like going down that way. We was just there last night. I feel like staying in our territory. And chilling. (Blaze scratches at the ground with his claws)

Two-Time

You don’t be doing anything but playing with the dirt.

Blaze

I’m writing my ideas down.

Two-Time

Dude you been doing that for the last few days and it hasn’t gotten you nothing. I been outside all mornin yesterday and caught a whole buffalo by myself.

Blaze

Yeah I know it was tasty. First time for solo buffalo, huh lil bra??

Two-Time

You know it! I saved you the butt for a reason.

Blaze

Ha. Real funny but you should know when I be sittin here writing my ideas. I make sure it’s gon take us somewhere. You know every prize doesn’t come on time and I need to do something bigger than whats in front of us.

Two-Time

Well the things right in front of us are the things that could get us killed.

Blaze

I can’t agree witchu more, but don’t forget that, that’t not the only things that could hurt us. Did you know that there are people tryin to take are home from us. They’re finding ways to move us away to use are area for their use. But umma tell you right now, I’m not gon go for it.

Two-Time

Yea I’ll like to see ‘em try it nd why you bein all philosophical in stuff. You know I’m rockin If that time come. I know you remember that other tribe that tried that.

Blaze

You don’t get it. Things is different. I’m talkin bout the same people who killed yo pop and the same ones who took mine. The upright monkey who rides four wheels.

Two-Time

Watchu mean I thought your pops left.

Blaze

Naw I found out yesterday that he in some place called the zoo. Where they take lions like us because they don’t like how we live and fear being around us, unless were contained, than they come watch us.

Two-Time

If I was as ugly as you I would be scared to be around myself. Now come on let’s go on cross da lake to catch up wit dem shorties from last night. You could use that mouth piece of yours to mate wit one of em cuz.

Blaze

(starting to heat up) Did you not just hear me say I found out where my pops was. You don’t never think ahead just always in the moment.

Two-Time

Look around we got are own problems. You aint getting nothin done by complaining about it how bout you get up and do something bout it.

Blaze

I don’t know what to do. I ran in to Slay the snake yesterday and she said if I got you to get your guard down so she could get a good bite on you, than she’ll get me ma pops and cash me out.

Two-Time

(solemnly) And what, you you mom and pops gon live happy ever after, right. Blaze

I’ll never back door nun of ma homies so don’t get it twisted but you know how I always be talking about doing sumthin big in ma lifetime this is ma only chance. At least you had a chance to meet yours they took mines before I was even born. I know he in there stressin. They got him n a cage. His presence is misery and he can’t do nothin but live in memories and there’s nothin he could do about it. God didn’t make livin things for cages.

Two-Time

Look bra I see whatchu sayin but I lost everything and this are prime time. I’m not waistin no time on sumthin that can’t be fixed. I’m gon get it how I live. You may not understand but you get numb to things when you lost everything than had to get it all back. So if you want to cross me go ahead just know I got sum for what ever cum ma way.

Two-Time

And that’s what you been thinkin bout. You trynna snake me? (pushes Blaze)

(they stare each other down 10 sec.)

Blaze

If I was tryin there wouldn’t be no trying. (sly smile) I raised you, you ma son.

Two-Time

(laughs) Wait hold what she want me for. There could be a list of things but I don’t recall don nun to dat girl.

Blaze

I was thinking about that too its probably because your colors I never seen no other lion wit ‘em. When everybody admire you there tend to be another group that hate and wanna take you out da picture or keep you from themselves.

Two-Time

Yeah you right so whatchu wanna do about it

Blaze

I say we let em think she gon getchu than I pop out and claw ‘em up. Find out where exactly where ma pop. It’s a long shot but we grew up together I wouldn’t give upu p even if da odds was on me. We gon figure sumthin out.

Two-Time

That’s a bet.

END OF PLAY.
