"Lincoln Jefferson Jones"

a free play script for two teen actresses #acting selection from a published play "Flowers in the Desert" by D. M. Larson
ISBN-13: 978-1530169085





TINA
I'm glad to have you back. I don't think I could of handled these screwballs by myself much longer.

SHELLY
I'm pretty much glad to be back. I'm gonna miss one thing though.

TINA
What's that?

SHELLY
Mr. Lincoln Jefferson Jones.

TINA
Who?

SHELLY
The most gorgeous hunk o' boy my eyes ever feasted on.

TINA
He ain't a doctor is he?

SHELLY
Nope, not yet anyway. Jeffy was a volunteer there.

TINA
Jeffy?

SHELLY
That's what I called him.

TINA
How did you meet him?

SHELLY
Jeffy volunteered at the hospital as a service to the community. He says he's always trying to find ways to help people.

TINA
I know how he could help you.
(They laugh)

SHELLY
He's so perfect. Straight A's and student body president.

TINA
He ain't a geek?

SHELLY
No, honey, he's fine.

TINA
So what kind of service did he do for you?

SHELLY
We just did a lot of talking.

TINA
Yeah, right.

SHELLY
(Winks)
And maybe a little more.

TINA
I knew it.

SHELLY
But it all was very proper. 'Cause I'm a proper kind of girl.

TINA
You are?

SHELLY
(Hits TINA)
When I want to be.

TINA
So what did you do?

SHELLY
Be patient. One step at a time.

TINA
Okay. How did it get started?

SHELLY
He was the one that delivered flowers to all the rooms. I saw him all the time and smiled when he went by. I guess I did enough smiling, 'cause one day he stopped with some flowers for me.

TINA
Who from?

SHELLY
Him.

TINA
Score!

SHELLY
"They were left over," he said. He thought I might like some. That's when the talkin' started. I told him my name was Mercedes Masterson.

TINA
You didn't.

SHELLY
I did. He called me Mercy for short.

TINA
Heaven help us.
(They laugh)
What else did you tell him?

SHELLY
I said I was a cheerleader and a tennis champ. I said I go to a private girls' school in California and I let him know I sure miss boys out there.

TINA
Go, Shelly, go.

SHELLY
(In a high class voice)
That's Mercy, dear.

TINA
Is that how you talked?

SHELLY
Of course, dear.
(Laughs, back to normal voice)
It drove him wild.

TINA
What else did you tell him?

SHELLY
That I was very lost and confused and I needed some guidance. My mum and my dad were never around and I really needed someone to help me.

TINA
This is better than TV.

SHELLY
He wanted to help so bad. He was a sweetie.

TINA
Is this where the kissing comes in?

SHELLY
Mercy looks for the finer qualities in men.

TINA
Yeah, right.

SHELLY
He knew I was leaving so he snuck in last night.

TINA
Yeah?

SHELLY
It was nice.

TINA
That's all?

SHELLY
What more do you want? You want me to tell it to you blow by blow?

TINA
Why not?

SHELLY
Forget it. There are some things we never tell.

TINA
Since when?

SHELLY
Since I met Jeffy.

TINA
Did you get his number?

SHELLY
Yeah.

TINA
Did he ask for yours?

SHELLY
Yeah, but I told him mummy would be furious. Mummy wants me to marry someone that's really, really rich. But I said I couldn't stand all those rich jerks. But if I don't marry one, I lose all of my money. And you know what he said?

TINA
What?

SHELLY
"Money doesn't matter, only you."

TINA
This is too good to be true.

SHELLY
(Smiles)
I know.

TINA
Are you going to call him?

SHELLY
I don't know if I should.

TINA
Why not?

SHELLY
It was fun at the time, but I don't...

TINA
You got a hot one. Don't lose him now.

SHELLY
We'll see.

TINA
You're crazy to let this one go.

SHELLY
I guess.

(Tina finds something in the flowers)

TINA
Hey, there's a note hidden in here.

SHELLY
Those are the flowers I found this morning when I woke up.  He left them while I was sleeping.

TINA
A love letter!  Read it.

(Shelly opens it)

SHELLY
(Touched)
Oh, Tina, listen to this. "Dearest Mercy,"

TINA
Skip to the juicy parts.

SHELLY
It starts out so heavenly. "Mercy. There couldn't be a more perfect name for you. You are my angel of mercy."

TINA
Does it get juicy?

SHELLY
"But I have a confession to make."

TINA
Oh, dear.


SHELLY
"My name isn't really Lincoln Jefferson Jones."

TINA
Thank goodness.

SHELLY
"I'm afraid I lied to you about a lot of things. I'm not really a straight A student and I'm not president of the student body. I'm not even a volunteer at the hospital. I have to be there as a community service for getting in trouble at school. But I told you all of this because I wanted you to like me. Someone as beautiful and wealthy as you could never like anyone as terrible as me."

TINA
It sounds like you two are made for each other.

SHELLY
"I know you probably want nothing to do with me now that you know the truth about me. But I knew I couldn't lie to you forever. I've never met anyone like you before. I don't think I ever will again. I'm sorry this has to end so soon. Our last night together is something I'll never forget."
Isn't it wonderful, Tina?

TINA
I'll say.

SHELLY
He liked me enough to tell the truth. That takes a lot of guts.

TINA
Sounds like a good catch to me.

SHELLY
He is dreamy.

TINA
So does it get juicy after that.

SHELLY
(Smiles)
Wouldn't you like to know?

TINA
It does?


SHELLY
I'm not telling. It's private.

TINA
Oh, come on, Shelly.

SHELLY
There are some things a girl of virtue will not share.


TINA
Oh, please. Give me a break.

SHELLY
Let's go out to the barn where no one can hear.

TINA
Okay.
(The girls laugh and run off R)
