EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT

 

INT.LIVING ROOM - DAY
Small table next to couch. We see a half bottle of beer
sitting on table. LARRY is sitting on the couch in a daze
looking at the TV. He has a pistol resting on his lap.
LARRY
What am I going to do? What am I
going to do?
He glances down at the gun. A little girl with a pretty
white dress and pig tails enter the room.Larry is startled
and as he quickly covers the gun with a newspaper
LITTLE GIRL
(Softly)
Hi daddy.
LARRY
(Confused)
Oh hi baby.
The little girl sits in the rocking chair across from the
couch. She begins to slowly rock as she stares at her dad.
LITTLE GIRL
Daddy?
LARRY
Yes dear?
LITTLE GIRL
Can I ask you a question?
LARRY
Sure, go ahead.
LITTLE GIRL
Remember my first day of school?
LARRY
As if it was yesterday.
LITTLE GIRL
I cried like a baby because I was
afraid.
LARRY
You sure did I thought you were
never going to stop.
(CONTINUED)
CONTINUED: 2.
LITTLE GIRL
And do you remember what you said?
LARRY
Yes I do.
LITTLE GIRL
What did say daddy?
LARRY
I reassured you that everything was
going to be alright.
LITTLE GIRL
You sure did.
LARRY
(Softly)
I sure did.
LITTLE GIRL
I remember that time when I was
running too fast in the park.
Larry chuckles.
LARRY
I told you too slow down you were
not in a race.
The little girl chuckles.
LITTLE GIRL
I fell and scraped my knee and you
said?
Larry laughs.
LARRY
Do not cry everything will be
alright.
LITTLE GIRL
The day when you took me to get an
ice cream cone...
LARRY
Yes I remember that!
LITTLE GIRL
Do you remember what you said to
me?
(CONTINUED)
CONTINUED: 3.
LARRY
I told you to stop crying that I
will buy you another scoop.
LITTLE GIRL
And what else did you say?
Larry takes a sip of his drink. He is thinking and suddenly
remembers.
LARRY
Oh, do not worry, everything is
going to be alright.
The two laugh.
LITTLE GIRL
When I was learning how to ride my
bike..
LARRY
You fell and I said that everything
is going to be alright.
LITTLE GIRL
You sure did but that was one time
that I did not believe you so I
never wanted to get back on that
bike.
LARRY
I sat on the ground where you lay
and told you that in life there
will be falls and you have to do
what?
LITTLE GIRL
Stand back up and try it again.
LARRY
And what did you do?
LITTLE GIRL
I got up got on my bike and rode it
to the wheels fell off.
The two laugh.
LARRY
I remember the day when I had a
business trip and you cried for me
not to go.
(CONTINUED)
CONTINUED: 4.
LITTLE GIRL
You hugged me and whispered in my
ear that you will be back soon and
everything was going to be alright.
Larry nods his head in agreement.
LARRY
Just like when your mother told us
that we where going to have a
little baby boy.
The Little girl laugh.
LITTLE GIRL
I told you guys that I was going to
run away.
LARRY
You packed a bag and everything.
The Little girl chuckle.
LITTLE GIRL
I really thought that I was doing
something.
LARRY
Where did you think you where
going?
LITTLE GIRL
The shed in the backyard.
Larry laughs.
LARRY
You do know the shed has no light?
LITTLE GIRL
I had a flashlight.
LARRY
Batteries die.
LITTLE GIRL
I know, plus it is bugs in the
shed.
LARRY
And no telling what else.
(CONTINUED)
CONTINUED: 5.
LITTLE GIRL
So a little brother did not sound
too bad after all and you hugged me
and told me that it was...
LARRY
Going to be alright!
The two laugh.
LITTLE GIRL
Daddy?
LARRY
Yes baby?
LITTLE GIRL
Can I ask you for a favor?
LARRY
Yes dear anything for my angel.
LITTLE GIRL
Can you fix me some hot chocolate
like you used too?
LARRY
Yes I can and I sure will.
Larry exits the room.
FADE OUT.
INT.LIVING ROOM - MINUTES LATER
Larry enters the room hands his daughter the Hot Chocolate.
LITTLE GIRL

LARRY
You are welcome.
There is a knock at the door Larry proceeds to answer. There
is a policeman at the door.
POLICEMAN

LARRY
Hello.
(CONTINUED)
CONTINUED: 6.
POLICEMAN
We arrested the man who murdered
your daughter. I need you to go
with me to the police station to
identify a few things that may
belong t your daughter.
LARRY
Things like what?
POLICEMAN
A backpack, clothing and some
little trinkets that we need to
confirm that they belong to her.
LARRY
Okay, lets go.
Larry looks back to see that his daughter is no longer in
the rocking chair, the cup of Hot Chocolate is sitting on
the floor near the rocking chair which is still rocking but
empty.
LARRY
(Softly)
Everything will be alright.
He exits the home.
