Do you like puppet shows? John? DARK STRINGS
JOHN STRAMEN Hey John, everything alright? Hey. Did you see who did this? Looks like some nasty business. No, I didn’t see anything. Come on Baako. You have a good day now. Refill? Jesus. I didn’t mean to scare you there. That’s your job. Everything alright? Yes…yeah. Actually, no. What’s the matter? Well for starters I haven’t been getting much sleep lately… Writing your next novel? Well, that’s the thing… I haven’t written anything yet. And a bunch of assholes… smearing my windows with eggs these past few nights… hasn’t been helping with things either. Well… I’m sure you’ll find inspiration soon. Your new book will be just as terrifying as the last one. Alright, I’ll… I’ll let you be. You tell me if you need anything else OK? Stay here. DARK STRINGS
BY ANGELA STRAMEN What’s the matter? Don’t you like puppets? I will consume you for what you have done… John. Angela? Hey John.
Everything alright? Yeah… You look a bit worn out. Rough night. You want to talk about it? Can I ask you something? Sure. Have you ever done something that you… truly regret? And have it come back to…haunt you. If I got a penny for everytime I did something I regret… I wouldn’t be working here.
I tell you. I mean…seriously. I made a terrible mistake and now I’m paying for it. What did you do? I betrayed someone… Someone very, very close to me. And… I took something from this person… and I used it for myself. Well… Did the person it belong to find out? She can’t. She’s dead. I’m sorry. Happier topic. Did you find inspiration for your novel? I have to go. John… I’m always here for you. Stay here, Baako. Come back you fucking cowards! Come back! Norbert. Norbert, come and help me. Norbert! Norbert! What’s so funny? What the fuck are you laughing at? Hey John.
Everything alright? You did it. Didn’t you? What? I said you did it. Didn’t you? What? You set my car on fire you son of a bitch. Didn’t you? I don’t know what… You did it you son of a bitch. You set my car on fire.
– John. Stop. Are you with them too? With them? We’re not the bad guys, John. Go home. Get some rest. You stay the fuck away from me… or I’ll kill you. Hey there John.
Is everything alright? What? What? Well, I see that your car took quite a beating there last night. So why didn’t you help me last night? I wasn’t awake to see it.
I’m a deep sleeper you know. I saw you watching from right there. I’m afraid you’re mistaken John.
I was in a coma all night. Listen Norbert.
If I find out you had anything to do with my car being set on fire… or any of this other fucking crazy shit that’s been going on…
you’ll pay! Do you hear me? There’s no need for threats, John. You stay the fuck away from me! Baako? Baako? No, no, no, no, no, no… Baako. 911. What is your emergency?
– Yes, hello. Hello?
– 911. What is your emergency? Someone killed my dog. – Excuse me?
– Someone killed my dog. – John? Go on, John. Finish what you started. John… do you like our show? Isn’t this inspiring, John? John? What did you do, John? Beth? It was a joke. He’s dead. You’ve killed him. John? What the… You killed my dog. Baako is with me.
It was fake. We were trying to help you John. Trying to help? Yeah…you know…
Inspire you for your next novel. Are you insane? What have you done? – Yes, John… What have you done?
– What have you done? What have you done.
What have you done?
– What have you done? What have you done. Leave me alone! DARK STRINGS 2
BY JOHN STRAMEN – What are you doing, John? The show is not over. Your terror… has only just… begun.
