Setting: The chapel. Stained glass windows. Rows of seats. An altar on the second level in [4, 2nd]. A huge cross with a dead, bleeding Jesus on it (Jesus is a sheep). It's very dark. Only a faint glow of street lights come in through the colorful window. Some deco candles are lit. Audrey sits on the altar in [4, 2nd].

%ACT% Alice picks up one candle from the deco candles in [3]

%ACT% Alice walks around, checking out the room.

Alice: "Nothing. Not even an emergency exit. Smell anything interesting yet?"

Haze: "Only disinfectant and despair. I could swear I got a hint of Rose by the door, but in here the smell of burning incense is overwhelming. Patchou!"

Alice: "What if she's not here after all?"

Haze: "I never said she must be here. Just that she's probably close by."

Alice: "But how close is "close"? 10 meters or 10 light years? We're on borrowed time, Haze. My withdrawal is getting worse ..."

Haze: "Oh wait, can you hear that?"

Rose: "*SNOOOORE*"

Alice: "Yes! Quick, hide! They'll scream the house down if they see you!"

Haze: "Gotcha."

Haze (off): "What is it?"

Alice: "She's right here! You're amazing!"

Haze (off): "Told you so!"

Alice: "Psst ... hey Rose ... wake up ..."

%ACT% Rose stands up groggily. She is wearing a pink bathrobe with a leash (bathrobe belt) tied around her waist.

Rose (afraid): "W ... what? Oh crap! I know I'm not supposed to leave my room after lights-out, but I had a really bad dream, so I came here to pray a little. Please don't tell on me ..."

Alice: "Rose! It's me, Alice"

%ACT% Alice hugs Rose, and gives her a big kiss on the cheek

Alice: "It's been how long? Three years? Four?"

Rose: "Alice? How the hell did **you** end up here?"

Alice: "I tried to start a new life. Didn't work out."

%MUS% MUS-2102 - Music Cue 02

Rose: "*sigh* Same here. I've had a bit of a rough time myself. Started drinking. It didn't end well."

Alice: "Damn. I wish I hadn't left you behind."

Rose: "You don't have to apologize. I know it was because of your dad, and not because of me. And now you're back! Our time here will be so much nicer together!"

Alice: "I'm not planning to stay. This place is a torture prison!"

Rose: "It gets better once you begin to understand."

Alice: "I understand perfectly what's going on here. First they break you, and then they turn you into one of them. Don't let that happen! Remember the good old times. Our final years in high school. The nights we spent secretly making out at the abandoned gas station!"

Rose: "That was in a different life. We had no idea what we were doing."

Alice: "No, Rose, those where the best times of our lives. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!"

Rose: "Our Lord and savior leads the way!"

%MUS% MUS-2103 - Music Cue 03

Alice: "Do you really believe that, or is it just a line they taught you? Please, come with me! I finally joined a rock band, can you believe it? You always wanted to be in a band, too, remember? Come with me, we can go our own way!"

Rose: "I'm afraid I have to stay. But Dr. Isaiah is looking for a new gospel band for the Sunday service! Maybe you could bring your friends in for an audition!"

Alice: "Hell no! Rose ... this place is hurting your very soul!"

Rose: "But I've never felt better! My life finally has a purpose!"

Alice: "And what purpose is that? This place is a cult, and it preys on the desperate and the helpless! Your happiness is an illusion planted into your head! Don't listen to your head, listen to your heart!"

Rose: "Yeah. I've been having those ... thoughts again. I came here to clear my mind."

Greg: "Did you see anybody else coming in here?"

Rose: "I don't know, Greg, I was just praying."

Greg: "The Lord sees everything you do, Rose. I'm missing a patient, and I'm pretty sure I heard you talking to someone."

Rose: "I was praying out loud?"

Greg: "Rose. What did we teach you about staying on the path of righteousness? She's here, isn't she?"

Rose: "I ... I don't ..."

Greg: "Where?"

Rose (timid): "Right there under the bench."

Alice: "Very soon I'll be nothing more than a convulsing heap of pain and misery. And you just sit there and watch me get worse, because seeing helpless people suffer apparently gives you a fucking boner!"

Greg: "That's not true!"

Alice: "Then pretend this is a real clinic and get me some meds, I'm dying!"

Greg: "That would be treating the symptom, not the cause!"

Alice: "Damn right, and I demand it, now!"

Rose: "You two seem to have a lot in common."

Alice, Haze: "That's putting it mildly."

Rose: "I ... I wish I could come with you."

Haze: "What's holding you back?"

Rose: "In here, The Lord and His guardian angels are watching over me. How am I going to stay on the path of righteousness without His guidance? How am I going to resist all the temptations? What if I start drinking again?"

Haze: "There is only one who's watching over you, and her name is Rona. She is a wolf like me. She belongs to you in the same way I belong to Alice. For the longest time, Rona and I were like yin and yang, just like you and Alice. We were like peanut butter and jelly, like ice cream and sprinkles. Like macaroni and cheese, like ..."

Rose: "*a-hem*"

Haze: "Well, like the best friends ever. But then a mighty force of evil pushed us apart, and I had to helplessly watch Rona getting tormented by powerful demons, bleeding from wounds she could not mend and hear her cries of pain. Every night, for many months. Please come with us, Rose. End the suffering!"
