PART 2


(HEATHER enters looking upset)

HEATHER
Hey, have you seen this boy?

(HEATHER holds up a picture)

RANDY
No, is he missing?

HEATHER
Yes, he’s my son… he’s been playing this PokyMonster game but he didn’t come back yesterday.  I thought maybe he’d be here with everyone.

RANDY
Let’s ask, Tom. He’s been playing this game a lot.  Tom?  You seen this kid?

TOM
Yeah, I think so.

(MANDY comes and looks)

MANDY
That’s Joey. He comes to the baits all the time.

HEATHER
You know him? When did you last see him?

MANDY
He was playing yesterday… he was after the PokySpook too.  I beat him to it.  He was pretty mad.

HEATHER
Where was he? Did you see where he went?

MANDY
I think he said he was going home. He wanted to be home before dark… but it was pretty late by the time he left. The PokySpook only comes out at night.

HEATHER
I told him not to play after dark. This is terrible.

MANDY
Maybe you shouldn’t let him have his phone at night.

HEATHER
Maybe you should mind your own business.

MANDY
He was pretty young… too young for a phone.

TOM
Lay off Mandy. Can’t you see she is upset?

MANDY
Just trying to help.

TOM
Hopefully Joey will show up here tonight.  Everyone is planning on being here.  This is one of the biggest PokyMonster releases this month.  

MANDY
This is will be quite a battle to see who gets it.

TOM
I’m not letting you this time, Mandy.  Don’t stand near me.  I want a fair fight.

HEATHER
I just want to catch my son… and cage him up.  I can’t believe he’d be out all night after I told him not to. This game is out of control.

RANDY
People get pretty addicted to these things.  I’ve just got an old flip phone. I don’t want a phone that’s smarter than me.

MANDY
That’s not hard.

RANDY
You know what?  You’re a little troll, you know that?

MANDY
I know.

(MANDY laughs and wanders off)

HEATHER
I’m really scared.  What if something happened to him?  I hear about people being so wrapped up in their phones that they walk out into traffic or fall off cliffs.

(TOM is looking through his phone)

TOM
What is that?  I’ve never seen anything like that before.

MANDY
That’s freaky!  I have to catch it.  

TOM
That doesn’t look like any kind of PokyMonster I’ve ever seen.  It’s gone!

MANDY
You lost it… idiot.   Let me see if I can find it again.  Way to go, loser.

TOM
Something was very odd about that.
